San Francisco Open
FRANCESCO — (UP) —
lick Metz, handsome young Chi-
cago professional, scored his
second straight major triumph
in' the winter golf tour by de-
feating Horton Smith, the tall
Joplin, Mo., stylist, 1 up in
the 36-hole finals of the $5,000
San Francisco open at the
Lakeside course.
The victory netted Metz $1,-
000. He won $1,200 in the Oak-
land open k;st Monday.
Today's victory came on the
strength of one of the greatest
comebacks in the nine year his-
tory of the tournament. Smith,
whose runner-up check was
$600, stepped into the lead at the
first hole and stayed in front
until the 25rh.
Several times he had a mar-
gin of three up on Metz who is
the professional at A. D. Las-
ker's private Mill Road farm
course iu Chicago.
At tile end of IS holes Smith,
using his great putting skill ef-
fectively. was two up.
It looked1, like a runaway
when he woTi the 20tli with a
par four as XJetz three-putted.
. But Metz. whovhas not been ov-
er par in five rounds at Oakland
and seven rounds here, pulled
his game together.' He took the
21st on a par three when Smith
missed his shot for the green.
He sank a 25-foot putt for a
birdie to win the 22nd, and on
the 24tVC he clicked with
to square the match.
. Thereiwas no stopping
then. I-

Gypsum Outfit NWill
Battle Gulf Five In
Other Loop Contest
Two teams with title hopes at
heart clash tonight when the
Standard Oil quint tangles with
the Faculty Five in the first
game of the city recreation bas-
ketball league card at junior
high gymnasium, while, in the
second melee, the Gulf Refining
company and the U. S. Gypsum
company stage a bit of industri-
al warfare on the hardwood in
an attempt to chalk up a win
against the one loss which each
club has suffered.
The Standard Oil hoopsters
hope to have the services of
their pilot and star guard, Dal-
ton Hill, tonight when they face
the professors in what is likely
to be the crucial game for both
quints in their campaigns for a
! clean record,with which to con-
j front the champion Athletic Club
I basketeers. Also scheduled to see
i action is Howard Butler, slight
| "pot shot" artist, and the three
j sets of brothers who comprise
the remainder
squad.
With a last minute victory ov-
er the Gulf Oilers to their cred-
it, the Faculty Five will be
gunning for their second win In-
fast company tonight before
meeting the Athletics Friday
night. The Faculty quint proved
themselves a team that's never
defeated until the final gun
when they overcame a 13 point
lead in the second half of their
tilt with the Gulf club last
Thursday night to ring up a 33
to 31 win. Although Priddy may
not be in the lineup tonight, the
profs will have a strong of-
fensive line on the floor in the
persons of Stevenson, Freeze,
Autrey and Davis.
A strong GuJf aggregation,
smarting from the loss to the
Faculty crew last week in its
season opener, will attempt a
comeback in the second game
tonight when it takes the floor
against the Gypsum miners, who
lost their initial game to the
Athletic Club a week ago. Bob
Anthony, Ossie Witt and Buck
Ingram, a trio which staged a
powerhouse drive in the Facul-
ty game, will be back on the
floor for Gulf, while the miners
hope to have Bob Hartford back
in the lineup to aid burly, big
Jim LaRue, Glass and Owens
in netting a victory for the
Gypsum club.
Jake Aught will assist Charley
Burke in refereeing the recre-
ation league games.

By AL STILUS
Scout Executive
The annual finance campaign
of the Boy Scouts of America
in Sweetwater has opened this
week with the senoing of letters
to all previous supporters and
to additional prospect3. This is
a marked change from previous
years when teams of workers
have been organized to contact
each one in the interest of
Scouting.
According to Aubrey Legg,
finance chairman, it is the hope
of the finance committee to re-
duce to a minimum personal so-
licitations. Mr. Legg says, "We
are anxious to conserve the
time of both contributor and so-
licitor. Annually we have organ-
ized teams of volunteer workers
to solicit funds for the Boy
Scout budget. This has entailed

will pit the flashing speed and

out in his 90 ring battles, against
the man whose every blow car-

The battle is scheduled for 15
rounds and Will send two negro
boxers against each other for j
the heavyweight title for the

all-colored championship contest
was in 1013 in Paris when Jack'i

It is generally conceded that;

the defendant was ushered into
a court room, already complete-
ly filled with the 143 special
veniremen called for jury duty
and spectators.
Salazar was dressed in a blue
chambray shirt over which he
wore i flannel jumper open at
the. throat. He wore dark trou-
sers and black shoes. His face
| was clean shaven and his black
j hair Was well groomed. He evin-
| ced little recognition of the se-
I rious proceedings which were
| about to begin as the gavel
| sounded for the court's opening.
| Throughout the morning session
! he sat making few movements,
j lie smoked not to exceed two
i cigarettes. Apparently he left
| the whole matter of the fight
| for his life to his counsel, E. F.

Sweetwater.

Embry, Oliver B. Eidson, and
C. R. Day. Scruples as to capi-
tal punishment and the fact
that they had already formed
an opinion were the most fre-
quent reasons for being excused.
But both state and defense used
one each of their preemptory
challenges.
R. H. Ferbrocke, Roscoe, the
11th venireman to be called was
quickly qualified for the first
member of the jury. He is a
mechanic. L. P. Dudley, Divide,

defense after rather extensive

CHICAGO — (UP) — Dr. Gits-
lav Egloff, oil company (Uni-
versal) research chemist, an-
nounced development of a
"cracking" process so efficient
that the United States could pro-
duce from its oil reserves en-
ough automobile and airplane
gasoline to supply the world.
The process, according to Dr.
Egloff, assures a plentiful sup-
ply of 100 octane rating gaso-
line for this nation's warplanes
even if the present number of
planes is increased according to
the recommendation of Presi-
dent Roosevelt.
The new process, he explain-
ed, harnesses a potent but gen-
tle force known as catalysis —
promotion of a reaction by a
neutral agent. Vaporized oil is
passed over the surface of the
catalytic agent which draws the
oil molecules apart with a high
degree of selectivity and at great
speed.
After the molecules have been
drawn apart, the catalyist reas-

material which he said was of

strength and which already

sembles them to make a kind
of gasoline which heretofore it
was impossible to make in large
quantities, Dr. Egloff said.
Gasoline now is produced by
a thermal—heat treating — pro-
cess. Great heat applied to the
crude oil while it is held under
heavy pressure "cracks" the
molecules apart to make motor
fuel. But this process, Egloff
pointed out, produces yields of
only 70 to 75 per cent of gaso-
line of 72 octane rating. The
catalytic process, he said, will
produce 85 per cent of gasoline
of 81 octane number or higher.
Egloff predicted that the pro-
cess may result in " a new era
in automobile design . . because
the superior characteristics of
the new fuel will spur automo-
bile engineers to design and
build for better automobile en-
gines than we know today."
Three of the world's largest
oil companies are planning im-
mediate large scale installations
to use the catalytic process, he
said, but he added that he did
not believe that process would
revolutionize the oil industry
over night.
"While the new process is a
milestone in the scientific ach-
ievement of the oil industry,"
he said, "it will at present sup-
plement rather than replace the
present cracking equipment.
"Eventually, catalytic crack-
ing may entirely supersede heat
and pressure, but the transition
will be gradual."
Reagan 6th Grade
Registers Tuesday
Registration of eighth grad-
ers at John H. Reagan junior
high school was virtually com-
plete this morning with 203
students enrolled, Gerald Wil-
liams, principal, reported. Of
this group, 142 signed up clas-
ses in the high eighth division
while 61 are assigned to the low
eighth course. A few "stragg-
lers" will probably boost the
total.
Seventh graders were to be-
gin registering at one o'clock
this afternoon and to complete
entrance work today.
Sixth graders are to reg-
ister Tuesday morning, Wil-
liams announced, and urged
that each child have prop-

Giving you fast, dependable telephone service in
Texas is no small job. It takes skilled, efficient
people...9,000 of them in the state. It takes a
lot of telephones, switchboards ... a lot of wire

And it takes money...a total of 24^ million
dollars for Texas last year... more than 10 million
dollars for wages alone, nearly 5 million dollars
more for taxes.
The telephone company is an important part
