More Help For Spokane Victims' Families

Benefit Game Set Monday
SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Seals, leading the Pacific coast league pennant race by five games, tangle with an all-star team made up of representatives of the circuit's seven other clubs in a charity game here Monday night.
The Seals, with worries of their own as they head down the stretch in quest of their first championship in 10 years, won the somewhat dubious honour of becoming the host team against the rest of the league by virtue of being on top of the heap August 5.
Seal Manager Lefty O'Doul will be assisted by Jimmy Dykes, former Chicago White Sox manager who recently took over as manager of the Hollywood Stars.
Casey Stengel, manager of the second-place Oakland team, will manage the all-star aggregation.
Proceeds of the game are to go to the Professional Baseball Players Association of America and to the families of the members of the Spokane team of the Western International league who lost their lives in a bus accident.
