TIW EOIALITY TO BE THE  Officials From Several Valley Communities To Convene Tomorrow In Arcadia  DINE AT SANTA ANITA INN  Important Pow-Wow Billed For Leading Southland Heads Council To Attend  LOSING STREAK  Firestone Nine Whips Locals In Double-Header; Corpe Pitchers Wild  With his staff of pitchers wild and ineffective, Manager Guy Corpe stood on the third base coaching line yesterday afternoon at the city ball park and watched the Arcadia Merchants twice bow to the strong Firestone Tire and Rubber Company nine, 10-4 and 11-8.  It was the first double setback dished out to the Queen City crew in some time.  In the opener, Lefty Johnson, San Francisco Seal twirler, held all the local batters in check except Jiggs Gasaway who pounded out a trio of safeties, and had an easy time coasting to a lop-sided triumph. Corpe used three pitchers in a vain attempt to stem the roar of base hits ringing off the Tire-men’s bats. Johnson aided in his own win by cracking out a pair of bristling two-base hits during the tilt.  Both clubs used three pitchers in the nightcap, and only one, "Lefty" Peters was in form. Corpe even called upon his regular first sacker, Jimmy Irving, to do a little flinging in this contest. Gasawey poled out a long homer for the Arcadians,  Members of the Arcadia city council tomorrow night are expected to adjourn their regular schedule session to Join the county-wide discussion billed for the Santa Anita Inn following a 6:30 p. m. dinner.

In nosing out the Lions from El Monte, 35-33, the Wildcats stamped themselves as the "dark-horse” entry in the league race this winter. The quintet from El Monte had been tabbed as the favorites in the chase for the championship along with Excelsior, while Gene McAllister’s machine, beaten three "out of four times in pre-season games, was doped no better than third.  Last Friday, Montebello trimmed the Pasadena five, and the local casaba club will rank as favorites when the teams take the floor tomorrow afternoon at 3.30 p. m Friday games in xhe league are pla yed in the evening, with the Tuesday encounters being slated for afternoon play.  When the pari-mutuel windows opened this afternoon at Santa Anita Park for the 23rd day of racing, the total handle was over twice that recorded for the same time last season, it was disclosed this morning.  Fans have poured $7,936,056 in the pools in 22 days, for a daily handle of $360,702. Last year this time, the total "tote” was $3.490.711, and the average daily handle $158,668.  The $689,126 wagered last Saturday was the second highest ever amassed at the Arcadia oval, the only one topping this being the handle on the day of the Santa Anita Handicap when $802,571 was rung up in the machines.
