| SPORTS I ♦ _ ? Second Defeat Os Season Handed to Winslow Merchants By GEORGE LAWS For the second time this year the redoubtable Winslow Mer chants were given a drubbing by a team of Redskins when Sunday, on the local field, they took the small end of a 5-1 count in a fracas with an invading team from Leupp. Strangely enough, the two defeats by Indian teams are the only set backs the Merchants have had, al though one of the wallopings was avenged by a merciless pasting handed the Riptrack Redskins some time ago. Manager Matthie elected himself try his slants against Leupp, aM had he received anything ap proximating support, he might In 1922 E5?

Sadly enough, however, the commercials picked Sunday as a day to practice foot ball, and fourteen booted balls pre sented the redmen with-the game. Spencer, hurling for Leupp, struck out eight men. and was given error less support by his snappy team mates. Dan Hitchcock connected twice for two-base hits, and dimmed this feat by kicking six blows that came to shortfield. The absence of Charlie Hitchcock, beside eliminat ing the threat of his slugging, ne cessitated a shift in the line-up, and the absence of Reynolds, the Merchants regular receiver, made it necessary to place Clark behind the pan, who, however, kept the Indian baserunners glued to the sacks, and blasted the hopes of several who tried to make secord.

REDSKINS AGAIN LOSE TO GIBSON MINERS, 14 TO 7 By CHARLES ERICKSON At the end of their second game against the fast Gibson Miners on the latter’s diamond at Gomereo, N. M., last Sunday, the Redskins’ average took one of those downhill drops that are so familiar to the Frenchmans’ Franc. Having won five, lost six and played one tie game, the riptrack Indian nine can boast of an average of only .455. The contest, which is reported to have been saturated with thrills, was attended by an exceptionally large crowd, who did their bit at loyal rooting. The final score of 14 for the coal diggers and 7 for the railroad ers, was the culmination of 12 hits, 5 walks, a hit batter and a donation of seven errors allowed by the lo cal aggregation as against 14 hits, 2 walks, a hit batter, and 4 bobbles extracted from the Gibson team. Despite the fact that Winslow outhit Gibson, their blows were keot scattered by Donovan until the first of the ninth frame when the Indians tapped out five and scored two runs after two outs had already been made. With two out in the sixth and a man on first Hendricks poled out a beautiful home run wallop which cinched the game for Gibson. A young fellow by the name of Smith, recently acquired by the Redskins, was indeed a “shining light’ ’in center field. He neatly blasted the hopes of Gibson would be Babe Ruths in scoring five put outs. Dennis Kie, crack first sacker H for the Redskins, who gets ’em on the ground or CsCl jumps high into the air for \j the little baseball sphere, | was forced to retire from /J the game after the second V inning as a result of being 5 hit on the right elbow up on his first trip to the bat. Incidentally Dennis has made by far the least fumbles of any mem ber of his nine and also tops the local base stealing records. The Redskins are matched with the Leupp Indian squad at the city park next Sunday. The two teams started the local baseball season of 1926 and having won a game each they now play for the “rub.” The Box Score: REDSKINS AB R H PO A E Kie, lb 2 0 0 0 0 0 Siow, c 4 13 6 11 Acoya, H., rs 3 110 0 0 Taylor, ss 5 1 2 3 3 0 Analla, If 5 0 2 2 0 1 Smith, cf 4 115 0 0 Holiday, 3b 4 0 2 1 4 3 Mariano, p and rf..4 2 2 0 1 0 Lewis, 2b 2 0 0 2 11 Acoya, G., lb 3 1 2 4 0 0 Saracino, p 2 0 0 0 0 0 Mariano, T., 2b ....2 0 0 2 0 1 TOTALS 40 7 13 24 10 7 GIBSON AB R H PO A E Silva, ss 5 3 2 1 6 3 Valenzuela, 2b 4 2 2 7 0 !)

J.L.SWEENEY OWNER SPELLMIRE WINS SWIMMING RACE AT CLEAR CREEK Clear Creek last Sunday was the scene of Winslow’s first aquatic competition of the 1926 Season, when a field of some ten entries vied for the title of “swimming champion of Winslow” in a free for all sprint. Bat Spellmire, former ly of Winslow, but now a resident of the west coast, won the heat, with Larsen, of Winslow, second. A tremendous crowd which wit nessed the water sports and the race testified to the popularity of such attractions here. The crowd was estimated by spectators as be ing nearly 500. After the race the winner was presented with a bathing suit don ated by the J. C. Penney company as a token of victory. The coming Sunday will present a hew feature, a free-for-all swim ming race for ladies, with another bathing suit offered by Babbitt Bros, as the prize. This novel race is expected to draw a crowd even larger than that which watched the race last Sun day. AMERICAN LEGION WANTS GOOD ROAD TO GRAND CANYON That American Legion posts of Arizona will unite to work for good roads to the Grand Canyon is the gist of a letter received this week by officers of the local Le gion post from Col. A. J. Dougherty Department Commander of the Ar izona American Legion. This agi tation has resulted from action tak en by Cedar City, Utah, which town is using the Grand Canyon, under the title “Grand Canyon of the Colorado,” as a drawing card in their publicity. Col. Dougherty has been in com munication with all Legion posts of the state, calling on all to back the movement for a good road to the canyon, and publicity regarding it. A controversy some time ago regarding the proper name of the canyon resulted in the decision that it is properly the Grand Can yon of Arizona, and the misuse of the name and its use by towns out side of the state for publicity pur poses has aroused the Colonel to the necessity for co-operation in exploiting our greatest natural wonder. Frank Perkins Post, of Winslow, in common with other posts in Ar izona, is behind the project, and have adopted the state legion’s motto: “A Good Road to the Grand Canyon of Arizona.” New Brands Applied for July Bth, 1926 Brand Earmark Location of Brand Name of Applicant, Postoffice I *V 14- C. left hip Earl Wortan \/ H. left thigh Redington New Brands Applied for July 15th, 1926 Brand Earmark Location of Brand Name of Applicant, Postoffice /'-'sy'-M C right thigh Horace P.
