The three hits allowed by he National league was one less than the four Lefty Gomez and Mel Harder gave the senior loop in 1935 at Cleveland. Here's how the heralded Amer- ican league power faded out in the simmering heat of a sweltering midwestern afternoon: Only 31 American league batters (four over a perfect game) went to the plate. Only five men reached base- three on hits and two on walks. Only one man reached second base, and only one (the same one) reached third. Only eight balls were hit out of the infield all day, three clean hits four easy flies and one hard-m' liner from Jimmy Foxx which Ter ry Moore pulled down easily afte a short run in deep center.

I decided on this novel gift when I read a raft of statements by Wai ter Pate a prominent member o the U. S. L. T. A. and for severa years the non-playing captain o the American Davis cup team. Mr. Pate, who is lovingly known as "Addle" to some of us, issued hi statements after being asked wha he thought of the idea of hpldm an open tennis championship a Forest Hills for the benefit of tn Red Cross. After due consideration, M Pate said he thought it was a grea idea, but only because a grea charity like the Red Cross woul benefit from having the profession als mingle and mix with the sacre and glorious youngsters who pia the game for fun. Once started talking. Mr. Pate was hard to stop and if the re- marks credited to him are accurate (and I have no reason to that they are not) he put the old blasteroo on the professionals. He expressed the opinion that an open championship would be a farce, as only three Budge, Fred Perry and Ellsworth stay on the same court with the 12 leading amateur players. The fact that Mr. Pate ignored such fine' professionals as Les Stoefen, Bruce Barnes, and halt a dozen others does not rile me so much as does his even considering an open tournament. If he had said the U. S. L. T. A. wanted no part of an open cham- pionship, that the U. S. L. T. A. shuddered at the thought of hav- ing the amateurs brush flannels with the money-tainted pros and that even the sacred waters of the Ganges would not be powerful enough to cleanse an amateur of- ficial once he had talked directly to a professional, I would not have considered sending Mr Pate or w Final arrangements were being completed today for he motorcycle rices scheduled for Sunday afternoon at the YlSskingum county fairgrounds__Sponsored by the local Legion post No. 29 andJ he Zanesville Motorcycle club, the aces will start at 2 o'clock.
