Series Continued From Page 10 of .95. Williams, a member of Best Way team, was the batting demon of the league. He led the league in batting with a .586 average and was the league leader in doubles and triples. Sandburg, who pitched for Terre- Haute Savings, posted a 6-2 league record with an earned run average of 0.50. Gilbert, who had .554 batting average, led the league in runs batted in with 22 R. B. I. and was a burglar on the bases by leading the league in thefts. MANAGER MYERS' pitching choice for the first game'will lie between Merriweather and Williams. Merriweather complained of a little stiffness in his shoulder after pitching last Saturday's game at Freeport, 111. Confident he has the pitching to carry the team through three games, Manager Myers is hopeful for a little better hitting. Off their season's records, the hitting is there if only the base hits will start dropping. In addition to the three front-line pitchers who were fine hitters, several •other boys on the team hit well above the .300 mark. Terre Haute's starting lineup will be determined by the choice of pitchers, but sure starters will include Kenneth Gilbert, third base; Cofield, left field; Ron Sheeley, first base; Pat Goggin, catcher; Arnold Page, right field, and Mike Turner, centerfield. Other members of the team are Scott Daffer, Charles Malqne, Dick Nicoson, Mack Vukusich, and Jim Lucas. TERRE HAUTE'S first opponent does not boast as gaudy pitching record, but the Texas youngsters piled up a lot of runs in winning 11 games. El Campo scored a total of 50 runs. The Southern Regional Champions barely made it to Williamsport, beating North Carolina's champions, 3 to 2, last Saturday at Norfolk, Va. El Campo probably will lead with Its pitching ace, Dave Vac- lavic; who won five games during the tournament. One of his efforts was a no-hitter and he fanned 40 batters in 30 innings. By the time Terre Haute and El Campo take to the field tomorrow afternoon, the youngsters on both teams will be calling each other by their first names. Since arriving here Sunday afternoon, all of the boys have had a chance to get aquainted. The teams are housed in separate bunkhouses, but they -eat and play in a central recreation building. Each team has two uncles who act as their hosts, helping OAK BUFFET 1211 South 3rd T-BONE STEAK French Fries or Cottage Fries. Choice of Salads. Rolls.

It is the boast of Little League officials the game is. "the s^me in any language"'since rules and regulations of the organization even are printed in Japanese. But the youngsters here find a language barrier at times when they are eating, or swimming— or even playing checkers in the recreation room. The kids from Monterrey chatter in Spanish as the likes of Gerardo Manrique talks with Jose Jesus Vallejo. Some of the Canadian youngsters are fluent in French, while the kids from Hawaii know more than "Aloha." + + + ODDLY ENOUGH, the kids representing Germany are the most representative of the United State than the four teams from continental United States. The team from Pirmasens represent 13 states, ranging from Washington to North Carolina. Their fathers are Army men stationed at Pirmasens. Although Americans all, the kids who came here all the way from Germany are champions of Europe. They defeated teams in Germany, France, Spain and Belgium. Not all of the kids have their moms and dads and aunts and uncles cheering for them, but every hit, fine play and strikeout is warmly cheered by the non-partisan fans who have ho trouble getting tickets to see the game. + + + LIKE LITTLE League parks everywhere, there is no admission charge. There are 2,500 seats on the third base side and it's a "first come" arrangement. The stands on the first base side are reserved only for visiting teams that lost out during the tournament and Little League officials and personnel from other cities. But the real fans — like the bleacherites at a major league park—are thousands who sprawl over the sloping hillside that provides a beautiful backdrop for the park. They come early, carrying picnic baskets and coolers of soft drinks. Part of the reserved section will be reserved tomorrow for some very special fans from Terre Haute—moms and dads of some of the Terre Haute players. Scheduled to attend the games are the mothers of Merriweather, Williams, Cofield, Sheeley, Goggin, Turner, Dapper and Lucas. Mr. and Mrs. Craig Sandberg, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Page, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Lucas and Mrs. Vukusich also will attend. Robert Radcliff, president of the Terre Haute Little League, and his wife will be in attendance. Continued From Page 10 on the recommendation of Mehl. Mehl recently has been critical in his newspaper column of Finley's policies for the A's—now in last place, 37% games off the pace. + + + FINLEY SAID of Lane: "He created great dessension between the two managers I have had— Joe Gordon and Hank Bauer. I had to let Gordon go on the insistence of Lane." Finley also had other observations to make on baseball and Lane. "In my book a general manager is not only a man who can make a trade over the phone — any damned fool can do that but he must be able to oversee everything. Lane did not do this and these other' responsibilities fell with Friday and myself." Finley denied that he had any ideas of moving the Kansas City franchise to Dallas at the present time, saying that he "felt confi- NOTICE Watch Tomorrow's STAR and TRIBUNE FOR BIG NEWS FROM GENERAL TIRE COMPANY • FREE GIFTS • FREE PRIZES • BIG VALUES DON'T MISS IT!

"We have a contract through 1963 with the city on the ball park which says if we do not draw 800,000 attendance we don't have to pay rent. "However, the contract has nothing to do with my staying in Kansas City—I can pull out anytime with American .League permission and the contract means nothing. But I must say the city officials have been extremely kind to me and the ball club. In all this operation I am mortgaged up to the hilt. + + + "I WAS FORCED to let Gordon go because it was impossible for him and Lane to work together (Lane last year got rid of Gordon at Cleveland in exchange for Manager Jimmie Dykes of Detroit in one of the most unusual switches in baseball history.) "If I had known then what I do now, Gordon still would be my manager," Finley continued. "But I gave Lane the benefit of the doubt because I had hired him and I had not hired Gordon. Gordon had become field manager before I bought the club." Finley said, "This dissension on the club can be traced back to the time when Lane used me in getting a point over to Gordon on the field. Lane would rush on the field and issue instructions and say they came from me, which wns totally untrue. "As for hiring Lane in the first place, at our first meeting I said to him: 'You can be the general manager, but all I want to know is for you to tell me beforehand when you make a move. I don't want to wake up and read it in the papers. I want you to consult me before you make a trade.' " Finley continued: "I will never forget what Lane said: 'If you want to hire an errand boy, you've got the wrong guy.' "It was not long after that in Chicago that Lane called me and said that he had just made a deal and wanted to tell me about it before I read it in the papers. This was a little bit too much." Black Cats Continued From Page 10 Brashear are the only returning lettermen from last year's varsity team. However, the team will have the services of Glenn senior Bob Sandberg, who placed fourth in the half-mile run at the sectional meet last Spring. Coach Welch expects sophomore miler John Clausman to be one of the top runners on the squad. Clausman qualified for the regional track meet last Spring. + + + BERT MORSON, another former Glenn runner, and Earl Whitesides, John Creighton, Charles Holmes and Terry Tryon all have had cross country experience and are working real well in practice. The team has been strengthened of late with the arrival of Russell Hatfield, Gerstmeyer's No. 2 half-miler, and Louis and Lester Ross, Mike Phillips, Gary Loffland, Ronnie Miller and Gary Turner. Coach Welch said that other boys who wish to join the team should do so as soon as possible. They may contact him at N-1186 or by calling the gym at C-2898. + + + THE SCHEDULE: Sept. 12—At Paris.

The Volo Song is one of the first races in which handicapping of the star performers is being inaugurated by A. E. (Ted) Gibbons, Yonkers racing secretary. Su Mac Lad is aiming for his eighth consecutive Yonkers victory, and with Stanley Dancer in the sulky is the 8-5 favorite. Others in the IV* mile Volo Song in order of post positions from one through seven are Senator Frost, Elaine Rodney, Tie Silk, Hickory Pride, Merrie Duke, Silver Song and Air Record. American Gives Up Channel Swim FOLKESTONE, England, Aug. 22,—UP)—Jane Baldasare, 24-year- old blonde from Columbus, Ga., gave up plans for a third attempt to swim the English. Channel underwater today. Persistent bad weather forced her to call off the attempt after 'days of waiting in this channel resort for calmer seas. "I'm going back to the United States at the earliest opportunity," she said. National Today's Pitchers Continued From Page 10 and the runners moved up. Then Neal missed connections on Javier's easy ground ball. The Dodgers, who trailed up to the ninth, scored a run in their half to tie it up. They knocked out Larry Jackson on back-to-back singles by Jim Gilliam and l)uke Synder. Then Wally Moon singled off Lindy McDaniel to even matters at 4-4. Ron Fairly also singled, loading the bases, but Norm Larker grounded into a force play at home plate' and John Roseboro lined out-to Javier. McDaniel, now 9-5 received credit for the victory. THE CARDS took an early lead on Bill White's second - inning home run, his sixteenth, and added three runs in the fourth on Ken Bpyer's single, a walk, Don Taussig's double, Grammas' sacrifice fly and Jim Schaffer's double. AH their runs but the last came off starter Johnny Podres. The reliefers, Larry Sherry, Ron Perranoski and Farrell, combined to hold the Redbirds to one hit through the ninth. Two walks and Wally Moon's single gave the Dodgers a run in the third inning and they picked up two in the seventh on Tom Davis' pinch single, a fielder's choice, Jim Gilliam's double and Duke Snider's single. THE PITTSBURGH Pirates, who had lost seven straight games to the Milwaukee Braves, turned the tables last night at Pittsburgh and whipped the Braves, 4 to 1, behind the five-hit pitching of southpaw Joe Gibbon and the hitless relief twirling of Elroy Face. After fanning the first two Braves in the eighth, Gibbon walked Frank Boiling and gave up a single to Eddie Mathews. Face 'then came in, got Hank Aaron on a fly to retire the side and set down the Braves in 1-2-3 order in the ninth. Gibbon struck out eight and walked two as he picked up his ninth victory after losing four straight. He has lost eight for the season. MILWAUKEE GOT its lone run off Gibbon in the sixth when Mathews singled with two outs, and Aaron followed with a triple. The Pirates got all their runs off Milwaukee starter Bob Buhl, who is now 9-9 for the year. Don Hoak batted in two Pirate runs in the second with a triple after Roberto Clemente singled and Smoky Burgess walked. Bill Mazeroski then followed with a single that scored Hoak. Gibbon drove in the fourth Pirate run in. the seventh with a single after Burgess singled and Mazeroski walked. ART MAHAFFEY, the Philadelphia Phillies' sophomore right- hander, snapped his personal 10- game losing streak by pitching a one-hitter against the Chicago Cubs for a 6 to 0 victory last night at Philadelphia. The 23-year-old hurler, who had won only one game in his last 15 decisions, gave up only a ground ball single through the middle by Ron Santo with one but in the first inning. Later, he walked Ed Bouchee in the third inning and picked him off second and walked Billy Williams to open the eighth. No other Cub reached first. Meanwhile, the Phils, who ended a 23-game losing streak on Sunday, won their second straight by pounding Dick Ellsworth and Don Elston for 11 hits, including a three-run homer by Don Demeter in the seventh inning. MAHAFFEY HAS won eight in 25 decisions. He participated in the run-getting, too. The Phils scored in the second on a single by Clay Dalrymple, a sacrifice by Mahaffey and Tony Taylor's double, and again in the fifth on Charlie Smith's double, Dalrymple's single and Mahaffey's sacrifice fly. Charlie Smith began the big seventh with a walk and Don Elston relieved Ellsworth after Dalrymple singled for his seventh straight hit and Mahaffey again sacrificed. Tony Taylor was passed intentionally to load the bases and pinch-hitter Johnny Callison delivered a run with a sacrifice fly to center. Demeter then connected for his thirteenth homer of the season and it was 6 to 0. It was Demeter's third homer in five games.

He also gets 30 per cent of the gate." Downes defeated Fender in London July 11 for his share of the world middleweight crown. The N. B. A. half is held by Gene Fullmer of West Jordan, Utah. Downes is recognized as world champion in New York, Massachusetts and Europe. Grid Exhibits Appear Flop in Honolulu HONOLULU, Aug. 22. — W — Sportswriters today figured Honolulu's first attempt at staging professional football exhibitions proved a flop and cost the promoter around $50,000. They estimated the Houston Oilers-Oakland Raiders and the Oilers-San Diego Chargers games, on Aug. 11 and 18, respectively, drew about 23,000 cash customers for a two-game gross of about $75,000. Expenses ran around $125,000. Promoter Mackay Yanagisawa, manager of Honolulu Stadium and sponsor of the annual Hula Bowl football game, wouldn't say how much he dropped.
