Gatto fanned 14 Indians in six innings before rain halted the game. Centralia's third baseman-pitcher hasn't been scored on in 28 frames of mound duty. Brookman .stopped Frank Plet's Dans on si.v safeties last night and* walked none during the nine-inning victory.

The Kings notched ten hit^ off Dan starter Lowery and reliefer Kohn. John Finigan, Chuck Popovich and Jimmy Given each chipped in two hits to account for six of Mt. Vernon's ten hits. One of Given's blows was a long triple into left center. Back on their running game, the Kings stole six bases for the night. Oscar Solorzano chalked up four thefts, three of his steals coming in one inning. It was the third straight game at Vets Park which was completed in less than one hour and 30 minutes. A slight rain fell during several innings but the precipitation never became heavy enough to cause an interruption of play. Danville Tonight The Kings wind up their home- stand with a single game against Danville here tonight. Tomorrow and .Monday the Hawleymeij play at Mattoon, then move to Vincennes on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Paris is at Vets Park next Thursday night which will be Boy Scout and Cub Scout Nite at the ball game. Gatto Fans 74 batters In 6 Frames Strong-Armed Centralian Has 28 Straight S.coreless Innings. By Associated Press CENTRALIA, 111.. June 16. ~ George Gatto, a Jack-in-the-box fireball pitcher, struck out 14 men and allowed only one hit in 5I2 innings last night as his Centralia team beat Mattoon 2-0 in an M-O-V garpe. The contest was called at that time because of rain. First Baseman Walter Dunkovich of- Mattoon, the league's leading batter, rapped out a single for his club's lone safety^ of the evening. Only one other runner reached base—on a walk. Gatto, a right-hander, plays third base when he. isn't pitching. He has now hurled 28 conseoutive scoreless innings and has a record of six victories against no losses. Gatto gave up but one hit the last previous time Centralia played Mattoon, which rfteans Mattoon has collected two hits from him in two games. Only one ball, in addition to Dunkovich's single, was hit out of the infield of Gatto last night. MONOTONOUS. WHAT f FAIRMONT, W.

Vernon Kings because the local club will not agree to major league broadcasts in this area (a 50-mile radius) while the Kings are playing at home. Implying that the whole thing is the fault of the stubborn Kings, the station requests listenei-s to write to the Mt. Vernon management and protest the radio ban. Very few fans have taken the trouble to write the Kings. .4s far as we know, there hasn't been a single Mt. Vernon fan write to protest the action of his hometown ball club. Actually, of coui'se. the Mt. Vernon team is merely attempting to stand up for its rights. The major league clubs put through the broadcast rule to protect the minor loops from which, eventually, the majors must draw their talent. The Kings are standing pat on their baseball rights. Joe Mondino of the Centralia Zeros was opposed to the Cardinal broadcast in his territory and withheld permission for a week or two. However, the Centralia club was aparently brow-beaten into line and gave up its rights. President C. E. Brelim of the Kings has informed the beer salesmen that Mt. Vernon baseball is as important to Mt. Vernon as the St. Louis team is to Greisidieck. "Threats mean nothing to us — you can't use threats * to pay players' salaries," said Brehin. "Mt. Vernon has made a struggle to stay in organized baseball to give young players a chance at a career. We're still making that fight. If baseball is going to be used to sell beer in this ar£a, then our team has certain rights and we'll stand by those rights for financial aid," Brehm said.

Yesterday's Stars BATTING WES WESTRUM, Giants, belt ed in six runs on pair of homers to lead New York to 11-6 triumph over Pittsburgh. PITCHING^ VIC RASCHI, Yanks, became first major league pitcher to win ten games in pitching New York to 2-0 three-hit triumph over Detroit. Back, Back, Back and He Leaps 15 Feet Actually it isn't the major broadcasts which hurt the minors so m.uch; rather it is the over-dramatizing done by the announcers in describing the games. "Diving catches . . . great stops . . , balls hit like bullets . . . etc." After the average fan has listened to that guff for a period of weeks he might venture into the park of a good minor league team and wonder if .it's baseball that they're playing. Pants Rowland of the AAA Pacific Coast League says: "It is not major broadcasts but major league radio dramatics that constitute a dire threat to the very existence of our league." "I can't see how the average fan stands the excitement of those broadcasts," Rowland said. "I've been in baseball practically all my life but I had no idea such phenomenal baseball was being played until I sat in front of a radio. "It's uncanny and also funny. The funny part of it is that most of those super players making those super catches were in the Coast League at one time or another. We can't understand why they can't jump way up in the air for a ball until they leave here . . ." "I heard one trap play described," Rowland said, "wherein the baserunner, caught between second and third, raced like a deer back and forth, back and forth with supersonic speed. I got a stiff neck just from listening. And do you know that player had been sold twice in our league because everyone figiyed he was lead-footed on the bases!" * * * * Frorn the "sensational—colosal- out-of-this-world—" plays of radio baseball our Mt. Vernon brand is quite a come-down. In view of the frequency with which the radios report outfielders crashing into fences, it's a wonder any of them are left standing and that any of the outfielders are alive. Equally puzzling is how the infielders manage to survive without bullet-proof vests, since they are forever getting in the way of ground balls hit with the velocity of rifle shots. * * • • Of course most fans know that the difference between major and minor ball is experience, polish, color and big-name publicity. Major league ball is smoother but not faster than minor. A 19-year- old can run just as fast and go just as far for a ball as a 30-year-old. He might not hold it when he gets there, but he'll go just as far and try just as hard in Class D as he will in the majors. The law of averages shows that at least a few players now in the M-O-Valley League will some day be playing major league baseball. Undoubtedly it will be several seasons before the lucky ones get to the top. When they go get 'em in the majors, they'll probably be more sure of themselves . . . But they won't be quite so fast nor going quite so far as they do at Vets Park today . . , NEW YORK—Joe Louis, 2111,4, Detroit, knocked out Lee Savold, 190, Englewood, N. J., 6.

BY RALPH RODEN Associated Press Sports Writer Vic Raschi. t h c Springfield (Mass.) rifle, is on the beam again. As a result the p>ennant outlook for the New York Yankees i s brighter today. The 32-year-old right - bander, winner.of 21 games in each of the past few seasons, apparently is headed for his best season in the majors. Raschi lan up an 8-1 report card and then suffered two sound beatings but the hard-working ace has come back with two neat pcr- foi-mances. He beat the Chicago White Sox last Friday and last night turned back the Detroit Tigers, 2-0, on three hits to becorne the first major league pitcher to win 10 games. Raschi won his tenth game in 1950 on July 4. Ras'chi's glittering victory over the Tiger': enabled the Yanks to cut the White Sox' pace-setting margin to three games. The Sox were upset by the last place Philadelphia Athletics, 4-3 and 12-5 in a twi-nighi doubleheader. Raschi fanned eight had a no-hitter until the si.vth Inning when relief pitcher Fred Hutchinson singled and was in trouble only in the ninth. The Tigers put two on with one out but Raschi struck out Joe Ginsberg and George Kell was thrown cut attempting to steal third as Ginsberg fanned. Philadelphia's stunning victories over the White Sox ended Chicago's 15-game consecutive road win streak. The A's won the opener in 11 innings on an error that wound up in a free for al. Elmer Valo walked with two out and scored the winning run on Gus Zernial's double that Jim Busby fumbled in left center field. Valo bowled over catcher Gus Niarhos who dropped the ball in the collision. Sox pitcher Saul Rogovin, backing up the play, swung at Valo. Players from both teams rushed out and a lew blows were landed before order was restored. White Sox manager Paul Richards argued •^he decision and played the nightcap under protest. Bob Hooper, who stopped the White Sox's 14 game winning streak recently, was the winner. Zernial started the A's off in the nightcap with a grand slam homer in the first inning and little Bobby Shantz stayed ahead the rest of the way to gain his fifth \ictory. Don Johnson, recent waiver ac(|Uisltlon from the St. Louis Browns, turned in his second straight victory for Washington as h • pitched the Senators to a i-2 decision over Early Wynn and the Cleveland Indians. The Senators wrapped it up with three in the fifth, irv Noren driving in two runs with a triple. Johnson allowed three singles and fanned seven. The Brooklyn Dodgers continued their relentless pennant drive in the National League, edging the Chicago Cubs, 2-1. Pitcher Don Newcombe, returning to action after a week's layoff, drove home the winning run with a sixth inning single. The second place New York Giants remained six games off the pace, outlasting the Pittsburgh Pirates, 11-6. Wes Westrum sparked the Giants, driving in six runs on his ninth and tenth homers. He homered with the bases loaded in the fifth and with one on in the ninth. , The St. Louis Cardinals snowed under the Philadelphia Phillies, 10-2. Billy Johnson, Stan Musial and Peanuts Lowrey featured the Cards' 13 hit drive with three safeties each. Willie Ramsdell pitched the Cincinnati Reds to a 6-1 decision over Max Surkont and the Boston Braves. Rain washed out the game between the St. Louis Browns and the Red Sox in Boston. THEY AREN'T LAUGHING AT JOE LOUIS TODAY-BOMBER FLASHES OLD FORM IN KO NEW YORK, June 16.—A jubilant Joe Louis, looking more like the magnetic, dynamic Brown Bomber of ten years ago, hollered for Ezzard Charles today and there wasn't a soul who would dare hush him down. A couple of days ago if you even hinted that 37-year old Joe would have a chance against the heavyweight champion, you would have been called foolish. Today, with the exciting memory of the Bomber's e.xplosive six round knockout of Lee Savold fresh in mind, hardened boxing men and Savold himself, will bet you even money that Louis will take back the prize crown he held so long. And he'll probably get his chance in Detroit this September. Charles has a July 18 date with Jersey Joe Walcott in Pittsburgh on his agenda and Louis said "I want a couple of more fights before then. Maybe one in Germany and one more." "I'll go along with Louis over Charles," said the battered 35-year old Savold as he nursed a battered nose, purplish brui.ses under each eye and a scarred lip. "He was sharp, real sharp," said the blond loser. "I just couldn't get off." Savold wasn't looking for the kind of Louis he met last night in jam-packed Madison Square Garden. Neither did anybody else including the S. R. O. crowd of 18,179 fans who paid $94,684. "I felt better than since the first Billy Conn fight," said the Bomber, patiently answering the questions of a milling crowd of reporters and well wishers. In the first Conn fight on June IS, 1941, Louis knocked out cocky Billy in 13 rounds, Joe called his shot against Savold. He predicted "I'll knock him out inside of six rounds." He did it at exactly 2:29 of the sixth with a smashing left hook to the jaw that dropped his bleeding, wobbling rival for the first time in the fight and for keeps. It was strictly a one-sided battle all the way as Louis snapped Lee's head back with jarring left jabs and bielted him to the head and body with short rights and uppercuts. From the second round on, Savold gushed blood from his aching nose and from the third on his face was a crimson smear. It was all a great triumph for Louis, making his first fighting in the Garden since he gained a controversial decision over Walcott on Dec. 5, 1948. And it was a big victory for the advocates of the ban against telecasting fights, and for the new fangled theater-television idea. A last minute rush packed the Garden for this twice postponed show which was finally shifted indoors from the Polo Grounds. And 22,000 spectators saw the fight via a closed circuit in eight theaters in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, Baltimore and Albairiy, N Y., at 40 cents a head, the theatre-cast brought in only $8,000. But the promoters are looking for tremendous revenue from this idea in the future. SOLORZANO 2ND IN MOV SWAJ^RACE Given Leads in Doubles, Popovich Swipes 22 Bases for Tops. Walt Dunkovich, Mattoon, with o .^410 average, has token over the batting lead in the Mississippi-Ohio Valley Leogue according to statistics compiled by Howe News Bureau. Oscar Solor/.uno, Mt.

Given retains his lead In runs batted in with 38. v>ther leaders repeating are: Clint iMcCord. Paris, in hit.s with 44; Bekeza in total bases with Ti; Mike Krsnich. Paris, in home runs with seven and Chuck Popovich, Mt. Vernon, in stolen •bases with George Gatto. Centralia, now tops the league's pitchers with a five victories and no defeats. Patino Dips to .305 .411 of the King regulars remained in the 'Top Twenty' bracket of hitters with the exception of Aurley Patino who dipped to '22:(tl spot. Patino is currentlv hitting .305. Manager Chuck. Hawiey, who has appeared in 11 games and has been at bat 33 times, ranks •23rd among hitters with a .303 average.

When Branch Rickey started his unorthodo.x experiment of putting the left-handed first baseman. Dale Long, behind the plate, there was some talk about difficulty in procuring mitts. Now that the noble try has been scrapped, and Long is first basing for the Browns, the Bucs are stuck with three of the white elephants. NATURAL THERE DUBUQUE, la. ~ (NEA) — When Clem Sheridan resigned as an American League umpire in 1910 because of failing sight, a Dubuque baseball writer remarked, "He should come to this league where it's a habit not an affliction." , Royalton, Carmi Here Tonight For Exhibition Softy Tilts TONIGHT 7:15—Royalton Tornadoes vs. Mt.

' The first exhibition softball games of the season—with powerful out-of-town teams competing against local talent—is scheduled for tonight at the Mt. Vernon city park diamond. In the curtain raiser, the Mt. Vernon Auto-Lites will put their perfect ten won-non lost record on' the line against the Royalton Tornadoes. Either Bob Jones or Geoi'ge Smith will draw the starting pitcher assignment for the locals. The Tornadoes are a young but hustling team with a reputation as sluggers. In the nightcap the Mt.

Marvin Williams will prob-. ably draw the pitching assignment for the local club.

SNIDER Dodgers Also Land Pitcher Johnny Schmitz, Infielder Wayne Terwilliger In Exchange For Bruce Edwords, Joe Hatten, Gene Hermonski And Ed Miksii. The Brooklyn Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals and New '^ork Yankees appeared more formidable today following last hour trades that involved 21 players. Only $10,000 changed hands in the bartering that included eight Dodgers and Cubs, seven Cards and Pirates, five Yanks and Senators and one St. Louis Brown. Brooklyn, enjoying a si.\-game lead in the National League, considerably strengthend its forces in an eight man player deal with Ciiicago. The Dodgers obtained Andy Paf- ko, hard-hitting outfielder, infielder Wayne Terwilliger, pitcher Johnny Schmitz and catcher Rube Walker. In return, the Dodgers gave up*outfielder Gene Hermanski pitcher Joe Hatten, catcher Bruce Edwards and utility infielder Ed Miksis. St. Louis obtained Wally Westlake, a recognized long ball hitter in a seven man swap with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cliff fNo-hit) Chambers came along with Westlake to the Cards who shipped pitchei-s Howie Pollet, Ted Wilks. catcher Joe Garagiola, outfielder Bill Howerton and rookie Dick Cole. The Vanks, attempt IIIK to overhaul the front-runnlnt;: Chic^o White Sox, procured left hander Bob Kiizava, a proven starter, from the Wasih- Inirton Senators. The Yanks sent pitchers Fred Sunford, Tom Ferrlck and Bob Porterfield to the Nat.s. Porterfield played for the Yanks' Kansas Cit.v American Association team. Pafko is the big man in the Dodger-Cub sway. A brilliant center fielder, Andy also can play third base. The Dodgers probably will use Pafko in left field, a sore spot for years with the Brooklyn machine. The Yankees also sent southpaw pitcher Tommy Byrne and an estimated SIO.OOO to the St. Louis Browns for Stubby Overmire, also a left handed hurler, in a deal announced just before the midnight deadline. The Cubs' prime acquisition is Edwards. Edwards has been playing second fiddle to Campanella and observers agree that he would be the No. 1 backstop on any other club. Hatten has tapered off the past few years. Hermanski and Miksis have been in and out of the lineup and may thrive on regular work. In Westlake the Cards' search for a rightlianded long: ball hitting player apparently has ended. Ever since the departure of Walker Cooper and Whitey Kurowski the Cards have been looking for a rijfht- handed thumper to go along with left handed slugger Stan Musial. W^tlake is second in home runs With 16. Westlake has been playing third base for the Pirates but undoubtedly will return to the outfield with the Cards and bat behind Musial. . Chambers, who has been bothered with arm trouble since his no- hit triumph over Boston a few weeks ago, reportedly is in shape. Pollet and Wilks, one time Card mainstays, have not lived up to expectations this year but figure to bolster the poor Pittsburgh etching staff. Garagiola, after a jrilliant freshman season, has been Cubs get him . . . but Bums get Pafko , . . Cards Score • RunsOn Hits, Thurrw Phills Hits led to scores— for a change —and the St. Louis Cardinals piled them on last night for a 10-2 victory over Philadelphia—their third^ triumph in 10 starts. • Peanuts Lowrey, Billy John- sun and Stan ^lusial powered the Rcdbird attack with three hits apiece. The team total was 13, against 7 for the Phils. Johnson and Lowrey homered, with John.son driving in four runs. Lowrey accounted for two. Musial doubled twice and singled once in five times at bat, boosting his league-leading batting average fi'om ..376 to .382. The victory moved the CardinaLsllk back to the .500 mark, tied for ' third place with Cincinnati. That's 8 ',2 lengths behind the pacing Brooklyn Dodgers and 2V2 back of the runner-up Giants. Southpaw Max Lanier pitched shutout ball for si.v innings but the Phils unfurled two successive home runs In the seventh for their only runs. The clouts came from Granny Hamner and Mike Goliat. Lanier,^ the winner, showed signs of tiringP and was replaced b.\' Cioyd Boyer at the start of the eighth. It was Lanier's third victorj'. Lefty Ken Hcintzelman yielded four hits and three runs in the first four innings before he was withdrawn for a pinch-hitter. He suffered his sixth reverse against two wins. Heintzelman was followed on the mound by Milo Candini and then Jim Konstanty, who was in turn relieved after giving up five^ hits m the eighth. ^ disappointing while Howerton and Cole have seen limited action. In acquiring Kuzava the Yahks hope to fill the No. 4 spot in their pitching rotation. The big three are Vic Rschi, Ed Lopat and Allie Reynolds. Complete SUNDAY DINNERS Served From 11 A. M. to 8 P. M.
