OKLAHOMA CITY 3, AUSTIN 2.
Austin. Texas, May 9 - (Special.)~
Solid Ivory was the distinguishing char-
acterlatic of Monday's game with the
Mets, and It waa due to the SiJld ivory
top-piece work by Mr. Savelan 1. the noted
home athlete, that Austin lost the lash
with the gentlemen from Oklahoma City.
The Ntaitllng exhibition of bone-hend-
•Uneas nine In the ninth frame, when
the right fielder of the home noys tripled
to rlghtfleld and then stood like u
wooden Indian < n third while Noyes
.lag a hall from beneath the grandstand.
There was no reason for Saveland not
scoring the run that would have won
the game for Hears bunch of willing
workers. However, the player chose to
watch proceeding* rather than run **
distance of 9ft feet to the home plate.
Take it from one of the most
enthusiast!) supporters that Austin
has. the Mets have some team. re-
gardless of what the players have
done at other cities around the
Texas league circuit, yesterday they
showed that they are really ball players.
This Is particularly true of Kuppan and
White. Thoae who guard the outer gar-
dens worked finely all through yester-
day's game and stabbed anything like
a rhance that came their way. Austin
showed with Ita new outfielder. Pennell,
secured Sunday from Fort Worth, and
thin athlete Is th« goods He did not,
to be sure, have any chance to show
today, but the home lot boys are bunk-
ing on him, and he la bound to deliver
the goods whenever Manager Clear calls
on him for an extra effort.
Outside of what you have Already
read, here's Rome facts anout today's
game. The nothing doing sign was fly-
In* prominently to the breeze ou the
home lot thla afternoon until the third
frame when Cook walked and was
brought on In home with the firBt run
of the game, when Gardner ripped off
a stinging double to t enter. The home
boys tallied again In the fifth on a brace
n< Mngles hv <5. Smith and Cook. G.
Smith accomplishl"- the feat of cross-
ing the oyster. That was two.

plished by McDonald lie advanced a
