By JOHN RACKAWAT The Mt. Vernon and Cen­ trolio monopoly on o two-way jennont fight in the M-O-Valey League turned into a three- way scramble when the Paris Lakers moved up. Now the three-way deal is nearing a four-way fight with the Vincennes Velvets just 4V2 games out of first place. The fourth-place V e 1« gained on the three leaden last night as they stopped Mt. Vernon 11-4 while the fifth and sixth place teams, Mattoon and Danville, dumped Paris and Centraiia. Dick Lacko and Mike Skordian, Mattoon's tou::h .moundsmen, teamed up to snap the Paris Lakers' winning streak at nine straight, 6-3. The Danville Dans handed Centralia's pitcher-third baseman George Gatto his first loss, 5-3. Vincennes jumped out ahead of Mt. Vernon with three runs in the first inning and was never headed.

Big Bill looked both good and bad in the game. A fluke homer seemed to upset him in the first inning and pave the way for the Vels' three-run oijening frame. Witli two out and none on, Elble hit a curving pop fly to right. The ball dropped into the corner in deep right field. Before Finigan could retrieve the rolling ball, Elble had circled the bases for an inside-the-park homer. Berman then walked Haas, Perullo doubled and Signaigo tingled and three runs were home. ».From then until the fifth Berman got the Vels in rapid-fire order. Meanwhile, the Kings were helpless against Rellergert. Berman drew a free pass in the third and he was the only Mt. Vernon baserunner until Finigan doubled in the fifth for the Kings' first hit. Finigan advanced and scored on a pair of ground outs. In the last of the fifth, Berman hit some more trouble. A walk, an error on Fichtel and a triple by Haas sent two runs across and Hawley brought Ray Ambrose to the hill in relief. Ambrose Is Rapped Signaigo greeted Ambrose with a single. Richmond then walked and Rellergert followed with another single. Vincennes had scored five times before the fire was out. Ambrose was hailed from the mound in the sixth. He walked the first two batters then Haas singled. After an out, Signaigo singled and manager Hawley brought Pete Milinkov in from left field to pitch. ! Milinkov finished up in good style, allowing no runs and one hit in the final Z and 2/S innings, though he Walked three batters. Berman had walked three and Ambrose three so the Kings free- passed nine for the nif^ht to go with Vincennes' 12 hits. Mt. Vernon finally got to Rel­ lergert for three runs in the ninth. Popovich was safe on an infield hit and went to third on Giyen's grounder which took a bad hop and went for a two- bagger. Both men scored when Finigan was safe on Garcia's error. Finigan moved to second as Milinkov fanned, advanced to third on Bodell's ground out and •cored on a wild pitch before Cas- sitjy struck out to end the game ^ In nine games this season, Vincennes has taken five de- elBlona from the Kings. Pacific Coast Whips Big Ten In Track Meet By BOB MEYERS Ty Associated Picss EUGENE, Ore., June 20. — The Big Ten can whip the Pacific Coast Conference in football but the far west is still, the best in track and field. "We just don't seem to have it. But we are not giving up," said K. L. (Tug) Wilson, commissioner of the Big Ten, today as he reviewed the triumph of the coast lads over the midwesterners in their annual track and field battle yesterday. The score was 77^4 for the PCC to 5iV2. Two meet records were smashed and 6,500 fans, largest track crowd in the history of the state, turned out to watch the competition on the University of Oregon's Hayward Field. Laz Sets New Mark Pole vaulter Don Laz of Illinois cracked the record at 14 feet 8 13-16 inches, one that was set in the initial Big Ten-PCC test of strength in 1937. Southern California's then great vaulters, Bill Sefton and Earle Meadows, set the height at 13 feet 6 inches. 23 Stock Cars In Race Field At King City A capacity crowd was treated to several crashes on a thrilling card of stock car races at the King City Speedway last Monday night. A big field of 23 cars appeared to battle for the prize money. Two local drivers, J. R. Lantz of Waltonville and Ivan Dodson, of Mt. Vernon, were among the winners on the seven-race program. Lee Rollinger of Champaign gave the crowd an exhibition of dai'ing driving when he finished the third race with no tire on his right front wheel. Rollinger was leading the field when the tire came off. He managed to finish third in the race. The winners by races: 1. J. R. Lantz; Waltonville. 2. Ivan Dodson, Mt. Vernon. 3. Roy Mann, Belleville. 4. Fred Schmidt, Urbana. 5. Johnny Bend, Macon. 6.,Roy Mann, Belleville. 7. Lee Rollinger, Champaign.

They are (left to right): Al Zarilla, Jim Busby and Orestes Minoso, the Cuban flash, who leads aU hitters. — (AP) -LIKE THE GASHOUSE GANG- AP Writer Travels With White Sox To Learn The Secrets of Paul Richards (EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story, describing the hysteria the Chicago White Sox have sjener- ated, is first of a series of five on baseball's most amazing team of the year). By JOE REICHLER AP Sports Writer NEW YORK, June 19. — What kind of a miracle propelled the Chicago White Sox from the bottom to the top of the American League? Can they hold their lofty perch!' The baseball world finds it difficult to believe what it sees. Here is a team, habitual contenders for The Hawleymen conclude the five-game road trip at Vincennes tonight, still trying for their first victory of the current tour. Paris Here Tomorrow They return to Veterans Park tomorrow night to open a home- stand against the challenging Paris Lakers who are now just one game back. Vincennes follows Paris to Vets Park for games on Saturday and Sunday. Tomorrow night will be Boy Scout and Cub Scout Nite at the Mt. Vernon park. All scouts in uniform will he admitted free. What makes the White Sox- tick? Can this astounding ball club stay on top in the American League ? The Associated Press assigned a baseball expert, Joe Reichler, to get the answer to these and other questions ppople are asking everywhere. Joe lived with the Wliitc Sox on the current road trip. He talked for hours with Frank Lane, the general manager; Paul Richards, the freshman manager and all the star players. He has written a series of five stories analyzing the White So.x. the cellar, become overnight the most talked about club in the nation. For three decades of filtility no Chicago American League team finished as high as second place. Now a sensational 14-game winning streak and a string of 15 consecutive road victories, has shot the Sox into first place past the defending champion New Yoi'k Yankees. This is incredible but the goings- on inside Comiskey Park, home of the White Sox, are stranger still. Compare To 'Gashouse Gang' Under the able direction of their manager, Paul Rapier Richards, an untired hand, the Sox have become the most daring team inybaseball. Already tliey are being compared to such heralded outfits as the Giants of 1911 who "stole" a pennant by sheer speed and daring, and the St. Louis Cardinals' colorful "Gashouse Gang" of 1934. In a recent three-game series in Washington, the Sox stole four bases. Three Sox were picked off base and three others were caught stealing. But in their over an.xiety, Washington pitchers hit 3 batters, walked 13; the catcher threw wildly twice and the taut Senator defense committed 10 errors. Fans lo\''e it. Despite chilly weather and an all-day rain that washed out one game and left the field wet for the next, some 30,000 Wasingtonians came out to see the Sox play. A record crowd of 53,940 people jammed Comiskey Park for a night game with the Yankees June 8. Comiskey Loves It All of which prompted Chuck Comiskey, 26-year-old vice president-secretary of the White Sox and grandson of the "noblest Roman of them all," Charles A. Comiskey, founder of the club, to exclaim: "Grand father never told me it would be like this. It's amazing, it's bewildering, it's terrifying, it's wonderful!" All this caused Richards to say: "People ask me to exeplain why we are in first place. We are leading the league because we can do a lot of things. We can beat you a lot of ways — bunting, running, hitting and fielding. And we have had pitching. But the most important thing to me is that we have players who like to hustle rather than those you have to make hustle." Editor's Note; Tomorrow's story —How the White Sox were patched together by an endless chain of trades.) 'Happy' Speaks Freely- He's Just a Mr. Fan Now NEW YORK, June 20.—A. B. Chandler is now an out-and-out baseball fan. He went to yesterday's doubleheader between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees because he likes to go to baseball games, and for the first time in six years he expressed himself freely about baseball players, speaking, he said, "as a fan." He shortly will relinquish the cfimmissionership of the game. Baseball owners have agreed to the terms of his severance contract. "Take Paul Richards (manager of the Chicago White Sox). He's one of my favorite fellows," Chandler said. "I was attracted to him in the minors. I thought then he was going to be a great manager. He's a hard worlicr. He doesn't like to lose." Hulking John Mize came to the plate for the Yankees. "It's a great tribute to a fellow when he keeps himself in shape like Johnny Mize—playing baseball at 38, and playing good baseball. And look at Wally Moses over at Philadelphia. He's been playing baseball for 20 years, and in the big leagues since 1935. That's a great tribute to condition." Chico Carrasquel, the sensational White Sox shortstop from Venezuela, came to bat. Those Latin-Americans are hungry bail players. They try harder. We've got too many boys in this country who take it easy. You've got to work hard to play baseball. Th^ reason the Negro boys have come along so fast is that they see the opportunity and want to make a place for themselves." Orestes Minoso of the White Sox came in from outfield to play third base. "Richards thinks he may become an all-time great player of the game," said Chandler. Mickey Mantle of the Yankees, who sent a home run into the distant centerfield bleachers, bunted safely on his next time at bat. "That's perfect," said Chandler. LinLE SPORT By Rouson HOLMES MAY SWING BAT FOR BRAVES Southworth Breoks Down When Sports Writers Bid Him 'Goodbye/ By Asseciited Pr«» CHICAGO, June 20. — Tommy Holmes, the new manager of the Boston Braves, said today he figures on playing with the team as well as directing it. The question of whether Holmes would seek a place on the active list came up at a news conference. "Id like to be on it." Holmes said. "I do want to play. I'll be available for pinch-hitting and against right hand pitching. If I think I can do a job, I'll be in there." Holmes, 33, was a star outfielder with the Braves for nine years. He talked with newsmen after his arrival in Chicago to take over the managing position. Ho succeeds the veteran Billy Southworth who resigned yesterday from a 5-vear contract running through 1952 at a reported $50,000 a year. Holmes smiling and looking fit, came up to the Braves from their Hartford, Conn., club in the Eastern League. While at Hartford Holmes "hit. as he figured it, around .320 to .330. "The club is sound." he said. "It looks strong. But a lot of the players are not hitting up to par." Holmes never directed a professional club until his Hartford assignment. "Don't worry about experience," commented General Manager John Quinn of the Braves. "Remember Bucky HaiTis, Lou Boudreau and Mel btt all stepped into major league managerial spots without experience. "Tommy has had a fine background in baseball (nine major league playing seasons all with the Braves) and he did a remarkable job the short while he was at Hartford." Hohnes left Hartford first in the Eastern loop race. Quinn said the Braves reluctantly accepted the resignation of Southworth. who last Sunday told Owner Lou Perini and Quinn he felt "some one else could do a better job." Southworth broke down when Boston sports writers said goodbye to him at a press conference yesterday. Billy, who won three straight pennants for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1942 through 1944 and in 1948 gave the Braves their first bunting in 34 years, spoke kind words in his farewell chat. He said the Braves had marvelous team spirit and that he had been treated fine by the club. Before a near breakdown forced his temporary retirement in 1949, the Braves were reported seething with dissention. Many of Southworth's players were depicted as furious because of Billy's purported claim "I won the pennant (1948) with a second-division club." Southworth turned over the reins to Holmes with the comment "I'm quite sure Tommy will do a grand job. I hope the press will treat him kindly." As Holmes steps in, the Braves are tied with Philadelphia for fifth spot in the National race, lOVs games off Brooklyn's pace. About his dwn plans. Southworth was vague. He indicated strongly he is not quitting baseball, but would do no job-shopping until he had rested up a bit. "I think I'll do a little fishing this summer—never had time to do it before," said Southworth before leaving for his Sunbury, Ohio, home. "I expect nothing," Southworth said when asked whether any financial settlement had been made on the remainder of his contract believed to amount to $80,000 for the rest of this year and next season. However, Perini presumably has worked out some agreement with Billy who came to the Braves in 1946. Tommy said he planned no changes in the coaching staff which now includes Johnny Cooney, Bucky Walters, Jimmy Brown and Bob Keely. Dark Helps Cards But Giants Win New York Shortstop's Errors Have Given Birds 3 Runs In 2 Games. "They expected him to slug it and he laid down a bunt. Of course that's Casey Stengel's doing. Casey (Yankee manager) is a wise old fella." Chandler said he spoke as a real baseball fan and not as commissioner in his comments on the game. It was noticeable that he remained impartial, praising both teams almost equally. By AiieciaUd Prtsi If the New York Giants had more players like Alvin Dark in their lineup the St. Louis Cardinals might be nearer second place today. In two games the New Vork shortstop has committed three errors which led to two Cardinal runs. When the Cards need a break Dark always brightens the situation. His one-run gift last night, however, served to do little else than tease the Redbirds. By the time the Cardinals picked up their run the Giants had finished their scoring for the night and were able to coast to a 2 -1 triumph in a rain - shortened, eight-inning game. Righthander Larry Jansen cuffed the Cards with u four- hitter as miinager Leo Du- roeher's team moved three and a half games ahead of the third place Birds. A single by Monte Irvin and a double by Hank Thompson gave the Giants their first run in the second inning. Wes Westrum scored the winning run in the fourth as the Cards failed to complete a double-play. Cliff (no-hit) Chambers was charged with the defeat, his seventh, on seven hits. Brownies Win , In Washington the St. Louis Browns and pitcher Duane Pillette broke up a three-game winning streak by the Senators for a 4-1 victory. It was Pillette's third triumph against five defeats. Catcher Sherm Lollar and second baseman Bobby Young each got two hits in the Browns' seven- hit attack against loser Connie Marrero and reliefer Ai Sima.

Now It's New York and manager Casey Stengel .singing the praises of the spectacular Sox. "Maybe we've been worrying about the wrong fellcr.s," muttered Stongol after Chicago had clawed its way back to a 5-4 victory in the second game of a vital double header yesterday with the Yankees. The Bombers won the opener, 11:9, and apfjoarod on the way to a sweep o( a twin bill. They \\cd, 3-1 alter seven innings of the nightcap. So instead of slicing two games off the Whi(e Sox' first place lead, the Yankees wound up just where they started — trailing by throe and a half games. No matter what the result of single games today and tomorrow, the hot Sox will leave New York still {Wicing the American League. "It look.s like we're going (o have to beat Chicago, rather than Boston and Cleveland, for the pennant," declared Casey, The jam-packed throng of 60,4-11, eager for a good look at pilot Paul Richards' Rockets, agreed with Stengel. ''Ihe fans went away convinced that the Sox were no accidents. Indeed, not many in the vast crowd, gave Chicago much of a chance as the Sox came to bat against ace Vic Raschi in the eighth, trailing 3-1. But those nover-say-die visitors had other ideas. Pinch hitter Floyd Baker slapped a single to center. Nelson Fox lined one to right and Eddie Stewart hammered a home run into the right field stands. Without an out being made, the Sox had forged in front, 4-3. But the Yanks hadn 't given up either. Singles by Phil Rizzuto, Gene Woodling and pinch hitter Johnny Mize in their half of the eighth tied the count against Randy Gumpcrt, who had replaced starter Joe Dobson. Again the Sox went to work. Jim Busby singled in the ninth, and raced to {hird on a one-bagger by Phil Masi. .411ie Reynolds replaced Raschi and yielded a two- bagger to pinch hitter Bob Dillinger. That .scored Bu.sby with the winning run. Howie Judson set the Yanks down in order in the ninth but the victory went to Gumpert, who now lias won seven without a defeat. In the first game, seven pitcli!>rs tooVi part, four for the winnni); Yankees. They surrendered a total of 27 hits, 1.5 by the Yankees including threc-run homers by Yogi Bcr- ra and Mickey Mantle. Boston's third place Red Sox advanced to within five games of the top as Chuck Stobbs limited the Cleveland Indians to four hits and beat them, 9-2. Tod Williams paced a 14-hit attack against loser Bob Lemon and two successors with his 14th homer and two singles. Luke Easter accounted for both Cleveland runs with a homer in the ninth. Homers hy Eddie Joost and Gus Zernial helped the Philadelphia Athletics trip the Detroit Tigers, 9-5. The St. Louis Browns combined seven safeties and five Washington errors for enough runs to whip the Senators 4-1. The Cincinnati Reds rallied for four runs in the ninth but fell one short as the Brooklyn Dodgers walked off with a 5-4 triumph under the lights. New York's Giants remained five and a half games behind, eking out a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in a game limited to eight innings by rain. Hank Thompson drove in both New York runs. Willie Jones hit his 12th and 13th homers, one with the bases loaded to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-2 triumph over Pittsbui-gh. Bob Rush hurled a 3-0 victory for Chicago over Boston as the Braves' manager Billy Southworth bowed out in favor of Tommy Holmes. YESTERDAY'S STARS BATTING — Willie Jones, Phillies—slammed two home runs, one with the bases loaded and drove in si.x runs to lead Phillies to a 9-2 victory over the Pirates. PITCHING - Larry Jensen, Giants—bested Cliff Chambers in a pitching duel as Giants nipped Cards, 2-1, for New York's seventh victory in eight decisions on the road. RE-OPENING TONIGHT THE MT.
