[}mpiring Causes Riot the clark and gloomy day for robbers. Pickering called a but his colleague gave a of how not to call In the first place, Cran- by a pitched ball, and his :nse was to denv free trans- to first. He claimed the ball bat and not his hand. ~'as suffering from a badly 1st and had to be relieved fact, his hand was black tom the blow, but the blind by his guess decision. Once Pinch, the same robber call- ',r Safe at second base after the bag and tagged two feet off the sack; how- called that base runner safe SCored on the iflay. We re: beat themselves by fail- ill the pinch and with the of a blind tom. Kenny Wild But Game a fighting heart when an uphill tussle with the him. In the sixth canto Scored four runs with two Start the inning Daniel was 2Unningham's boot; Wernert was given a base on balls; Smith sac- rificed, which put runners on second and third with one ont. Jim worked hard' on the next batter, but he hit an inside ball t~O center fiehl, scoring two rtms; Keltns, scorin~ Burke, and on the next play Burke spiked the rubber when the tnnps called a rtmner safe at second base.-The locals in the same inning tried 'to turn the tide, but Keltus relieved Burke and saved the day for El Segundo. 1)oran opened the inning by drawing a pass; Cun- ningham advanced him witli an infield out ; Hawkins walked, and Dagley came through with a terrific liner to left, scoring Doran. Sisto then walked and the fans were on their toes when Thomas worked Burke for another base on balls. Hawkins scored the second run of the inning, and the bases were full, with Kenny up and one out. Keltus saved the visitors when he pitched masterly ball by striking out the next two batters in quick fashion. In the next frame the the Cubs had a chance"}S step off< in front when McDowe'il opened the lucky seventh by reaching first on an error; Dorap doubled to center, scor- ing Percy; then Cunningham sacrificed Doran to third, and then and there it' looked' as if'rh6 Cubs w.ere sure of tieing the score. Again hurler:Kettus settled down and fanned both Haw- kins and l)agtey in short order. The game from start to finish was exciting, thrilling and well played. It was anybody's game tmtil the last man was retired; both teams fighting every inch of the way. All in all, although the Cubs lost they showed the cash customers that they arc at their best when hard pressed, and when the in- domitable Glendale \Vhite Sox inhabit the Magic Isle on the 5th and 6th of Jtfly for a series they will bc given the surprise of their lives.

Umpire Picketing. Scorekeeper, A. W. McDowell. BOOTS and BINGLES Fredie Phafler was the fielding star of the game, Accepting teu chances; going back of first base after diffictflt plays, and dashing to his right after hard chances. Johnny Hawkins, University of Sou- thern California's all around crack athelete, made his debut in a Catalina unifornt Sunday and looked good. He was a little nervous, owing to the fact that he tried too hard to make good; nevertheless, he is a hustling ball play- er and is a credit to any ball club. PAGE THREE John turned down several major league contracts because he desired to com- plete his course at college. Dagley brought 'the crowd to their feet when he crashed one of Burk's benders to center With runners on, on two occasions. Sam is improving steadily, and his services cannot be dispensed with when the gong sounds on Sunday mornings. Kenny had trouble locating the plate during tbe first five innings. After that he settled down and gave a bril- liant exhibition of coming back and pitching' great ball. Had the boys hit behind him the score might have been the reverse. Chamberlain, El Segundo's star hit- ter, lived up to his reputation by crashing out three blows. Keltus was the man of the hour for the visitors. He served an assortment of mean spittcrs to the batters, and was at his best while under fire. The following is the June fishing record from the launch Leona, Cap- tain A. E. Eaton: June 16--F. A.
