Batting Averages Listed
Medford'f Kogues will be
shooting for the first half cham
pionship of the Southern Ore
gon league here Sunday after
noon when they entertain the
Crescent City Merchants at the
high school park at 2:30 sharp.
With four victories and one
defeat, Manager Paul Hoffard's
gang of kids will clinch the
first-half title by conquering the
visitors, but the big skipper fig
ures it may prove rather diffi
cult to accomplish In view of
the fact that Crescent City, two
weeks ago, handed his club
their lone loss of the season.
However, Hoffard Is confident
the lads will turn the trick.
Virgil Haynes, ex.U- of Ore
gon righthanded pitcher, is
slated to take the mound for
the locals, with Billy Calvert
back of the plate. Yammer, a
southpaw who turned back the
Rogues a couple of weeks ago,
will probably be on the mound
for the coast team.
By For G. P.
The first-half race ends Sun
day, with the Medford-Crescent
City tilt being the only game
scheduled. Grants Pass will
draw a bye.
Following are the Rogue bat

Srooklyn Crushes Braves,
11-2 to Climb Into Tie
DiMaggio Hits Safely
By Judson Bailey
(Associated Press Writer)
The Brooklyn Dodgers and
St Louis Cardinals are in an
exact tie for the National league
lead today, and apparently they
are going to keep right on fight
ing each other until the end of
September. '
This is an old custom in the
senior circuit, but never any
more fiercely contested than
this year.
The Dodgers pulled into a tie
last night by crushing the Bos
ton Braves, 11-2, while all other
teams in the league were idle.
The New York Yankees held
on to their slim percentage lead
in the American league by
humbling the St. Louis Browns
4-1 with a spectacular one-hit
pitching performance by Lefty
Marius Russo.
DiMaggio doubled on his last
time at bat to run his hitting
streak to 38 consecutive games;
and Tom Henrich homered to
extend the club's record string
of four-baggers to 35 In 21
straight games.
The Cleveland Indians rallied
for six runs in the seventh inn
ing to beat the Boston Red Sox
11-8 and prevent the Yanks
from increasing their margin.
Johnson Homers
The Chicago White Sox and
Washington Senators, who had
battled 13 innings Wednesday,
struggled through 16 innings
yesterday until Washington fin
ally edged out a 3-2 decision on
Jimmy Bloodworth s run-pro
ducing single.

By Gall fowler
Spokane, June 27. (JP) This
Is a story about a conscientious
fellow who made a vow 10 years
ago and kept it, probably ex
plains why Chuck Hunter of
Tacoma hasn't figured in any
golf tournaments for the past
You'll remember that in the
late 1920s Chuck Hunter "was
way up there in Pacific North
west golf circles. Then Chuck
decided to be a lawyer.
"And when I decided to study
law I decided in favor of law
over golf," he says. "I quit tour
nament golf and gave myself 10
years to establish myself as a
lawyer. I made up my mind I
wouldn't knock off afternoons
