THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS MONDAY, JUNE 18, 1951 Kings Held to Four Hits Until Ninth; Dunlcovich, Ivy Only Ployors in Mottoon Lineup Who Started Seo- son With Indians; Poris Lokors Moving Up Fast. While the Mt. Vernon Kings and Centralia Zeros hove been staging a bitter fight for first place in the M-O-Valley pehndnt chase, the Paris Lakers have been moving up on the outside. After weekend play during which 'Mt. Vernon and Centralia both suffered single reverses while Paris :was winning two games, the fast- moving Lakers jumped to within three games of league-leading Centralia, just 2Mi lengths behind the second-place Kings. P»rls whipped Centralia last night 6-1 wiUIe Chuck Hawley's Kings found the revamped Mattoon Indian lineup too much to handle and went down 9-8. John Sullivan, sports editor of the Mattoon Journal-Gazette, said this morning: 'The team which Mattoon fielded against Mt. Vernon here last night was the best in the M-O-Valley League." . The Indians, who have sent a parade of option ball players through the mill for manager Mel Ivy during recent weeks, now have just two regulars, manager Ivy and league-leading Walt Dunkovich, who were on the club at the start of the season. Th« reinforced Indiana pounded 18 hits off starter Karl Hall and reliefer Charley Heiatsnd in spUling the Kings last night. It was Hall's first start for Mt Vernon this season. 'Little Red' has pitched some brilliant relief jobs for the Kings but was a long time Team W Centralia 23 Mt.

A double by Fetrow and a single by Wallace produced the first Mattoon marker off Hall in the second inning. Hetstand In Belief Estill started the Indian third with a double and Klingert and Dunkoyich followed with singles befoiie a batter was out. At that point, Hawley sent Hall to the •showers and called on Heistand. Baer greeted Heistand with Mattoon's fourth straight hit. A passed ball and an error on Heistand ac- feounted for a four-run Mattoon inning before the side was retired. Hall walked two and allowed six 'hits and four ru^s in his two innings on the hill. Heistand went the rest of the way, giving up seven more hits and five runs. SIcordian Stops Kings Meanwhile, Mike Skordian was harnessing the Hawleymen on four hits until the ninth inning. Skor­ dian walked five and fanned five in gaining the victory. In the ninth, Fichtel and Bodell opened with singles for Mt. Vernon. Hawley batted for Heistand and bounced into . a doubleplay. Finingan and Popovich then singled before Cassidy struck out to end the game. Four ninth inning hits produced one run for Mt. Vernon. One of the hits off Heistand was a homer by Wait tloe, Mattoon catcher. The circuit clout came in the fifth Inning with a runner on base.

By Aisociattd Press The St. Louis Cardinals sudden ly have lost their sliyness in their attitude toward extra-base hits. Showing no apparent ability to hit with authority against the Brooklyn Dodgers in three games the Cards finally came to 1 i f against the Philadelphia Phillies In the three-game set, swept clean by the Redbirds, Sports man's Park fans saw the home town boys knock out eight home runs. Two of those Merc smacked by Stan (The IVIan) Musial yesterday. His 14th of the season came in the 10th inning; to give the Cards a 3-4 triumph. All togetlier, four liomers were hit in yesterday's game. Musial's came with the bases empty while Cazdinal BilJy Johnson and Phillie Willie Jones picked a spot with a base occupied to collect tlieirs. The win secured the Cardinals hold on third place but they're still seven and a half games be- liind the front-running Dodgers and a game and a half behind tlie second-place New York Giants. New York ^peiis a four- game stay tonight with Dave Koslo (3-3) set to worlc agfiiinst either George Munger (3-3) or Joe Presko (63) of the Cards. At Fenway Park yesterday the St. Louis Browns could do nothing toward making it anything but home sweet liome for the Boston Red So.x. The Sox cashed in twice, 5-4 and 3 -0, to make it 10 straight against the Brown., in the Boston park. Two errors by first baseman Dale Long gave the Red Sox the first game victory in the ninth inning after the Browns had taken a 4-2 lead in the eighth. The Browns are idle today.

Charley Coe Favorite For 49th Amateur SOUTH BEND, Ind., June 18.— Charley Coe. the slender slugger from Oklahoma City, has been pegged the favorite in the 49th Western Amateur Golf Tournament opening today with qualifying trials for 150 hopefuls. Coe, as defending champion, will not be required to enter the heavy traffic of the 36 hole trials—single rounds today and tomorrow over the rolling, water-pocked South Bend Country Club course. He will join the 63 low scorers foi' match play action starting Wednesday and grinding through until the champion is crowned Sunday. Coe, whose game seldom dulls, is No. 1 choice mainly because he reached the finals of. the recent British amateur, won by Dick Chapman, who is passing up the time-revered western. Three of Coe's Walker Cup teammates figure to give him an argument. They are Frank Stranahan of Toledo, Western winner in 1949 and 1946; husky bill Campbell of Huntington, W. Va., and Jimmy McHale of Philadelphia. KRAUTINC THE PLATE — Outfielder Hank Sauer. the Chicago Cubs' long-ball hitter, is a long-haul eater when he sits down to a feast of an old-family favorite—v^ieners and sauerkraut.

Y., June 18— Patty Berg was counting the .$5,- OOO grand prize. Babe Didrickson Zaharias was banking the $2,500 consolation prize, and the United Cerebral Palsy Fund was $23,000 richer today following the stirring climax of the Woathervane Wo- mcns Cross Country Tournament. Playing a marvelous short game to more than offset the Babe's trrmendous wooci shots, Patty carded a three over par 75 for the second IS holes of the playoff yesterday at the Deepdale Golf Club to edge out her opponent by one stroke. Tln>y had tied at 71 for the first 18 holes Saturday at the Scarsdale Golf Club at Scarsdale, N. Y. . (Central Standard Time) NATIONAL LEAGUE YBSTBRDAY'S STARS Carver Is Missing Fortune, But He Isn't Resentful By Associated Press BOSTON, June 18.— For a ballplayer who probably has been denied the greatest financial opportunity of his careei-, Ned Garver, the St. Louis Browns' pitching ace, is a most unusual type. He does not appear resentful. Until last Friday midnight, it was taken for granted the New York Yankees would pay a record price for Garver, thereby insuring themselves another American League pennant. But just before the trading deadline, the Yanks took Stubby Overmire from the Browns in a routine pitching swap for Tommy Byrne. As a Yankee, the 25-year- old Garver could demand a small fortune annually if he continued a winner. But with the hardpressed Browns he will draw only nominal wa^es. "Every ballplayer likes* to get as much as he can for his services," Garver admits. "But only the clubs that have big parks and draw big crowds can pay big money." "But I've got no kick cuniing," Garver continued. "The Browns picked me off the sandlots and gave me my start. And I appreciate what they have done for me." Garver, responsible for half of the Browns' 18 victories to date, had a heart-breaking experience striving for his lOth win here Saturday against the Red Sox. Ho held those ftuned sluggers to six hits on their own chummy premises but, unfortunately, three of them were By Associated Press BATTING—Stan Musial, Cards —clouted two homers, his second coming in the 10th inning to defeat the Phillies, 5-4. PITCHING — Allie Reynolds, Yankees—pitched a four-hitter as the Yankees defeated the Tigers, 5-0.

During his three previous seasons Willi the Browns, Garver had 7-11, 12-17 and 13-18 records. ;'Fishin' For Fun," a new two- reel sound motion picture stan-ing Ben Hardesty, U.S. professional all-around bait and fly-casting champion, will be shown to an audience of some 75 members and guests of the Mt. Vernon Gun and Sportsman's Club at Hotel Emmerson Tuesday, June 19, at 7:15 p.m. This -was announced today by George Grissom, president of the Mt. Vernon Gun and Sportsman's Club, who reported that a 16 mm print of the film for the special showing is being obtained from the Detroit Headquarters of the Fisher Body Division of General Motors, the firm that produced and is distiibuting the picture. Fisherman's Thrill Described as an important contribution to fishing lore by conservation authorities, "Fjshin' For Fun" presents a comprehensive exhibition in the art of fishing and casting, encouraging participation in the sport and emphasizing the thrill every fisherman seeks, Grissom said. The film is completely devoid of advertising save for the credit titles. Hardesty, a plain and fancy fisherman who truly labors for love, is described by Ted Husing who narrates the film, as "a guy who drops 'em in a tea cup as far away as you can see it." In "Fishin' For Fun" the champion gives an exciting and dramatic display of angling for trout, bass, sailfish and tarpon. The trout sequences were taken in Northern Michigan and show a thrilling series of shots while Hardesty was hooking, playing and landing three varieties of brown, brook and rainbow. Battle With Sailfish The scene then shifts to a small lake in New Jersey, famous for its bass fishing. Working from a boat, Hardesty gives a colorful display of first landing a fighting Jersey small mouth and then a scrappy large mouth with a little bull dog blood in his veins. Then for the salt water enthusiasts, the champion engages in a battle to the finish with bait- slamming sailfish off the coast of Florida. The next sequence is a thriller for both salt water and fresh water fishermen. The champion goes after the white fox of the shallow flats, bonefish, with fly tackle and gets him. For the climax Hardesty exhibits a dynamic display of landing hundred-pound tarpon on light fresh water tackle in a Colorful scene shot in the Shark river jungle country of Southwestern Florida. Without a gaff and with bait- casting tackle, Hardesty hooks, plays* and lands a beautiful silver king that battles the champion for more than an hour.

Viva Orestes Minoso! Arriba Caracas! Arriba Chico CarraSquel! , Meaning Manager Paul Richards and his Chicago White Sox are grateful to Havana, Cuba and Caracas, Venezuela for their contributions to American "belsbol." Aloma, Minoso and Carrasquel were the big guns yesterday as the American League-leading Medias Blanca (White Sox) swept a double-header from the Athletics, 4-1 and 9-0, to snap a three-game losing streak in Philadelphia. Chicago's double win increased its first-place margin over New York to 3ls games despite the Yankees' 5-0 victory over Detroit. Boston's third-place Red Sox took two from St. Louis, 5-4 and 3-0, to remain five games off the pace. Washington swept a three-game series from Cleveland with a 5-1 triumph. Brooklyn widened its National League lead over the New York Giants to six games with a 3-2 win at Chicago as Pittsburgh defeated the Giants, 11-5, in the first game of a twin bill. The second game was called in Pittsburgh's half of the eighth inning because of the Sunday law. The score was tied at 6-6. The game wU be resumed July 24. The St. Louis Cards won their third straight from the Philadelphia Phils, 5-4. Cincinnati and Boston divided a double-header. The Reds won the opener, 2-1. The Braves took the second, 5-0. Carrasquel, senor shortstop in Caracas, was the offensive and defensive star of Chicago's first-game \1ctory. The "brillante" Venezuelan ra|»- ped out two hits, drove in a run and handled five chances flawlessly. Randy Gumpert was the winner, "Tiis sixth straight. Aloma and Minoso were "estu- pendo" in the second game. Aloma hurled a five-hit shutout. It not only was the Cuban righthander's first victory but his first major league start. Minoso rapped the "pelota" all over the park. In six times at bat, he collected two singles, a double, a triple, drew a walk and was hit by a pitched ball. He stole a base, his 13th in 14 attempts and batted in two runs and scored three. The only time Philadelphia got the Cuban out was when they closed the park. Yankee Alie Reynolds hurled his second shutout and sixth win of the year, limiting the Tigers to four hits. Ted Williams batted in two runs in each game as the Red Sox kept pace with the league leaders. Ray Scarborough won his fourth in the opener and Mel Parnell twirled "in eight-hit shutout for his seventh win. Hermanski Believes Pafko Got His Dough Freddy Sanford, pitching his first game since his acquisition from the Y'anltees, won a three-hitter for Washington over Cleveland. A home run by Roy Campanella CHICAGO, June 18.-When Andy Pafko was traded from the floundering Chicago Cubs to the first-place Brooklyn Dodgers, he said: "Gee, that 's like somebody giving you 5!5,000." Pafko, of course was referring to a possible slice of world series money. "Y'eah," said Gene HermanSki, who was sent to the Cubs, "that's my $5,000 they're giving him." , Oklahoma Is New Champ in NCAA Baseball OMAHA, June 18.—Oklahoma's Soonors are the new kings of the collegiate baseball diamonds. The smooth playing Oklahomans won the NCAA base* ball crown from Tennessee last night In a S-2 thriller that climaxed a five day ellnt- inatlon tournament. Jack Shirley, 6-foot 1 right­ hander, let Tennessee have only three hits. But the determined Vols, who had *o win two games Saturday— while Oklahoma was idle— to get into the finals, had a 2-0 lead at the end of five. * By the seventh, Oklahoma had tied the score. In the eighth, Ray Margosh doubled and scored the winning run when Charles Pugsley singled. Saturday Tennessee eliminated Utah and then overcame Southern California, pre-tourney favorites and favorites to the very end among some of the baseball men attending the tourney. Omaha businessmen, who would like to have the *ournament an annual affair here, had underwritten its cost this year and thrown C their weight behind a big .promotional campaign. The campaign paid off In a total paid attendance of 26,788, a new record. Last year 17,085 saw the tourney in Omaha. Coaches voted to hold the tournament here again next year. with one out and Gil Hodges on base in the top of the ninth gave the Dodgers their 3-2 win in Chicago.
