Both Teams Muster
Their Full Strength;
Buckley Will Pitch
The Roseburg Umpqua Chiefs
may have a real battle on their
hands Sunda" afternoon at Ash
land, as they summon up all
their baseball know-how in an
effort to defeat an as yet un
defeated Ashland organization.
Manager Earl Sargent's base
ball nine faces tough opposi
tion in the Ashland aggrega
tion and the game appears to
be the "test" for both clubs in
Southern Oregon League play.
Ashland, well-aware that it
faces a rugged combination in
Manager Sargent's crew, will be
on the diamond in full strength
to maintain its undefeated rec
ord. But Roseburg is equally cog
nizant of the abilities of its op
position. Manager Sargent is
taking every precaution, includ-'
ing the strategic maneuver of
using Claude Buckley's services
on the mound. The Oregon Col
lege of Education hurling ex
pert has kept the motor warm
in his pitching arm and will be
ready for a fast takeoff in the
bottom half of the first inning
Other Infield stars scheduled
to participate in Sunday's ac
tion include Norm West, flashy
first baseman and cleanup hit
ter; Barney Koch, equally flashy
second baseman and leadoff hit
ter, who holds a record of sorts,
for hitting a three-bagger in
each of three games he has play
ed with the Chiefs this season.
Base-stealing brothers V i r g
and George Sanders are certain
to see plenty of action Sunday,
both in the field and as base
runners. Lovell Baker may enjoy
another hitting streak. In the
Reedsport contest he got four
for four. He has been up to bat
seven times since then, getting
only one hit. In the language of
the baseball addict, "he's about
Dick Debernardi and Hal Ed
gar, two top-flight fielders and
clouters, when the spirit moves
them, may make things extreme
ly hot for Ashland, while Jerry
Huggins will undoubtedly be
called upon to call the signals
from behind home plate.
Even Bunky . Hill, the patri
archal pinch-hitter, may be called
upon to creak out a single in
a crucial moment.

Rookie Pitcher, Who
Bought Freedom, Now
Is Team Pace Setter
By JACK HAND
Associated Press Sportswriter
Thanks to Paul Calvert, a shop
worn "Rookie" who bought his
own minor league release for 51.-
500, the Washington Senators are
in second place.
Only 5i games behind the
American League leading New
York Yankees, Washington is
snowing us ncel- to sucn well
liked pennant contenders as the
Boston Ked Sox and world cham
pion Cleveland Indians.
Calvert deserves a large share
of the credit because he leads the
pitching staff with six victories
when he was supposed to be only
bullpen insurance. No. 6 was a
ld romt over the wobbly St.
Louis Browns last night.
Papa Joe Cambria, a Washing
ton scout, saw Calvert pitching in
the Cuban League last winter. He
told Boss Clark Griffith that the
lean, righthander with the specs
and the sinker ball could help his
ball club. At the time, anything
would help the Washington team.
Calvert was a free agent, hav
ing purchased his, release from
Toronto after slaving in the
Cleveland chain gang at Balti
more, Wilkes-Barre and way
points for many years. He came
to terms quickly with the Sen
ators. Calvert allowed five hits In sub
jecting the Brownies to their
ninth straight loss and 13th in
their last 14 games. Eddie Yost,
who hit a total of two homers in
four previous big league seasons,
hit his third homer in three days.
The Yanks protected their lead
by outlasting the Chicago White
Sox, 9-7, in a three hour and 28
minute marathon. Two errors by
Luke Appling helped the leaders
cash five unearned runs. A total
of 35 players saw action in the
