Bracken, 71, for-mer Bingham physician and a of the Bingham Mercan-tile company, died August 1 in Pasadena, Cal., after a long ill-ness. Dr. Bracken was born in Mt. Pleasant, Ohio. He studied medi-cine at Jefferson college, Phila-delphia, and soon afterward went to Salt Lake City to begin prac-tice. He was a physician in Bingham a number of years. With C. E. Adderley and J. C. Dugan, he or-ganized the Bingham Mercantile company in 1897. Mr. Dugan withdrew from the company a few years later, being given sole ownership of the Garfield Mer-cantile, which had been establish-ed by the three partners. Dr. Bracken sold his interest in the Bingham Merc, to Mr. Ad-derley in 1929. He was a practicing physician in Springville and was D&RGW railroad surgeon there. Among his business interests were ranch and livestock holdings in Utah. After retiring from medicine he was associated with Senator W. A. Clark in construction of the Los Angeles and Salt Lake rail-road. Surviving are a brother, Walter R. Bracken of Las Vegas, Nev., and a sister, R. Edith Bracken of Pasadena. Funeral services were conduct-ed Pasadena Saturday. ; Sports Here and There By AI Ablett r Gemmell was finally stopped in their drive for second half laurels. Helper turned the trick Wednesday, 5 to 2. Lindsey on the mound for the Miners was ef-fective with men on, and the Clubmen were held until the eighth inning when they manu-factured two runs. Helper got three in the first when Curia homered with two men oa, both men having reached first when the infielder, in chasing the ball, slipped and fell in the mud. I know that sounds funny to us in Bingham, because wo haven't seen rain for so long we can't remember what it's like, but it rained in Helper Wednesday, and I do mean poured. Saturday night and Sunday will long be remembered by the Pinney ball club as a night-mare. Gemmell club went into the ninth inning Saturday night in Community Park trailing by one run, 5 to 4, but the big guns wheeled into action and when the smoke cleared away the Clubmen were leading 8 lo 5, and that is the way the game ended. Peewee Bass started, but his arm hurt him so he had to retire before the side was out in the first. Bob Detmers took over and he had the Salt Lake boys eat-ing out of his hand. He allowed them just four hits for seven and one-thir- d innings. Frank hit for him in the ninth and Sammy Oliver pitched the last inning, retiring the side with-out any damage being done. opened the fatal inning with a triple to right, and after retiring one man, Price lost con-trol and walked Kastelic and Velcheck to fill the bases. George Sluga then hit a double, scoring two men, and Zaccaria hit a line drive single to score two more. Zac was out stealing and Sum-nic- ht flied out to end the inning, but the damage had been done. Sunday was a different story. The game was over as early as the third inning. Gemmell scored seven runs in this inning, and with Fish pitching superlative ball. As far as Pinney was con-cerned that ended the game. Gemmell went on to score nine more runs and the score ended 16 to 5. HIGHLIGHTS: Frank of Gemmell has been wearing that ball out 9 for 17 in the last four games. Wilson, Gemmell's second base-- 1 man, got four for five in Helper and three of those were doubles. Zac went into a short slump, but he has snapped out of it in the last three games. Kastelic hit one Sunday far up in the bleachers in centerfield to score two men ahead of him. George Sluga is fast becom-ing one of the best fielding first basemen in the league. This is George's first year on the bag. He played the outfield before. Magna isn't doing so well this half, but I believe Erickson has uncovered a find in this boy Ridd on third base. Venturelli played third for Helper Wednesday. He is the boy thai pitched the Helper (Continued on page ten) FIREMEN NAME MEETDELEGATES Delegates to attend the annual convention of the Utah State Volunteer Firemen's association to be held at Logan August were elected at meetings held this week by Bingham com-panies No. 1 and No. 2.
