fUr as is known, the first in the state of Texas—last week
successfully passed the senior life-saving tests of the American
National Red Cross at examinations conducted at Central Play-
ground swimming pool.
John Griggs, Central life guard, assisted by J. C. O'Donnell,
the Texas state oxaminer (white), was the official examiner.
Earl Itkiiardson, the other Central

average of 87; Josie Buckley, 86,

tral life guards, were the first
colored men to pnss the tests and
qualify as senior life savers.

onstration of resuscitation meth-
ods; trending water; floating, dis-
robing In deep water—shoes, skirt,
coat, and then swimming one hun-
dred yards; carrying a fully dress-
ed subject for one minute; after

proper approach, then carrying a
subject rlxty feet, keeping subject's

Now that the cVty has qualified
girl life savers, it has been sug-
gested that t:hoy be used as guards
at the numerous Ilace girls' sum-
mer camps, as there is not a reg-
istered life guard at any one of
MIXED SEMI-PRO NINES
ON WAY OUT/
CHICAGO.—As you know, there
bag been growing agitation by the
colored and some white scribes
for the use of dusky baseball play
ers In the big leagues. It was a
shock, therefore, to road recently
in dally papers that the National
Semi-Pro Baseball Congress was
planning on barring mixed teams
from com^petation after this year's
national tournament at Wichita.
Realizing that this would lie a
huge step backward, and the suc-
cess of «'ich mixed teams could
no longer be pointed to as an ar-
gument for lowering the National
anil American League color bars,
contact was Immediately made
with Hans Wagner, the immort.il
Pittsburgh shortstop, who is com-
missioner of semi-pro ball.
Replied Mr. Wagner; 'There
must have been some mistake in
tlje article which I never saw.
We feel colored players are not
4>nly good a3 players, but also good
Raymond Dumont of Wichita,
president of the semi pro congress,
wrote at the request of Hans Wag-
ner stating: "No official action
will be taken In reference to draw-
ing the color line In the National
Semi-Pro program until a meeting
of state commissioners tentatively
scheduled for Chicago in February.
Any ruling will lie voted upon by
the commissioners, and which, of
course, must be approved by the
lilgh commL sloner, iluuua Wagner.
"At this writing, we are not ex-
pecting to eliminate Negro teams.

good ball game, in the first of a double set with the highly- h" n M fJamp
touted San Angelo Black Sheep Herders, but, in the second, a'h h
came from behind, assisted by visiting miscues, to eke out a
deadlock in the nightcap, an abbreviated seven-inning affair.
A wild heave by Catcher Smith of the locals in the second
inning, permitted two Herders to
score with the two rnns that
meant the game—the final count
was 5 to 4, San Angelo.
In the seven-inning twilight set-
to, the Missions went berserk In
their half of the "stretch" fifth, to
rush across three runs to knot
up the count at five-all, and there
it stayed throughout the seventh.
The game was called with the
count all tied.

Missions Draw First Blood
In the first game, the Santonl-
nns, nfter retiring the Sheep Herd-
ers in one-two'three order, started
fast and furious, and, with singles
by Williams and Langram, a dou-
ble by Applewhite, and a single
by Bowens, the Giants pushed
three runs across.
And then came the nerve-rack-
ihg, drive-you-nuts first half of
the second, with Blair on, by vir-
tue of a single, and Walden also
on base, having drawn a walk,
Smith, the Giant catcher, heaved
the ball to right field, trying for
an easy play at first, with both
Blair, and Walden romping home,
making the count 3-2, Santone.
The San Angelenos tied it up in
the third, at three a piece, when
Moore, lead off man, slammed one
for a three-bagger, and scored on
The score remained knotted iro
til the last of the fifth, when
Dimry, San Antonio right fielder,
doubled, and scored on Apple-
white's single. San Angelo came
right back to again tie the score.
With two out, Blair singled, scor-
ing on Walden's double.
It was goose eggs for all until
the first of the ninth, when Bou-
dreaux singled, and later came in
with what proved to be the win-
The Giants tried hard to tie It
up In the ninth. Spencer batted
for Langram, but did nothing. Wil-
liams, batting for Dimry, walked.
Then Phillips hit Into a double
play and the game was over.
Mi.Clure, Santone pitcher, was
nipped for eleven hits, walked two,
and struck out five. Smith, San
Angelo pitcher, was touched for
twelve hits, walked two, and
struck out seven.
Applewhite, star, Santone ccnter
fielder, turned in a beautiful, run-
ning, back-to-the-ball, over-the'
shoulder catch of Franklin's hard
hit ball to deep center for probably
the best fielding play of the day!
Dimry also turned In a beautiful
catch of Williams' long drive to
right in the sixth Inning. Sims,
San Angelo center fielder, made a

Frank's Takes Lead in
Soft Ball League Play
In the second game, San Angelo
I nshed across two tallies, in the
I scond inning, on three hits and
ipi error. In the second, Santone
lored one, but San Angelo took
'ftunmandlng lead when the Herd-
garnered three tallies in the
inrth. Santone pushed across one
its half of the fourth, and then
in amuck in the fifth to tie up
1th three more across the pay-
If plate. The locals worked a
loillile steal, got three hits, and
,Ook advantage of a couple of San
igelo errors to get their trio of
ying runs. That ended the scoring
for the day.

Frank's Grocery—the team that
likes to roughhouse—went into
the lead for the bunting in the
torrid battle for supremacy in the
San Antonio Athletic Association
Soft Ball league, as the pace-set-
ting Porters fell before Leonard's
in an extra-inning tussle.
Leonard's Pharmacy, mustering
its full strength for the first time
this season, and with the boys that
last year and the year before car-
ried the pill rollers to the city
championship, knocked the Porters
right out of first place in a bril-
liant pitching duel between two
manager*—Homer Johnson of
Leonard's and Mosley of the Port-
ers. The Porters tallied twice in
the first inning on errors by Terry-
man and Taylor. In the second in-
ning, however, Taylor tried to
compensate for his miscue by knock-
ing a long homerun to score two
men. Going into the sixth, Leon-
ard's enjoyed a 4-2 lead. In this
setto, C. Jones of the Porters
doubled, and 6corcd ahead of
Houston who connected with one
to knock it out of sight for
round-trip. The count stayed all
knotted up until the ninth, when
Mosley, of the Porters, grew wild,
and walked Johnson, who was
soon advanced to third on passed
balls. Turpin, new Leonards in-
fielder, came through with his first
lilt of the game, scoring Johnson
with the winning tally.
