As the pitching around the M-O-Valley League seemed to come into its own almost overnight, the astronomical batting marks of the Mt. Vernon Kings hit the skids . . . Averages to be released tomorrow show most of the Kings dropping from 20 to 40 points . . . Chuck Popovich who started as low man on the Mt. Vernon batting totem pole (below .300 for three weeks) has now climbed to .356 to reverse the trend among the rest of the sliding Kings . . . Consider the games which Heistand and Lohmann lost to Centralia last Wednesday night. With pitching like that earlier this season the Kings would hafe won going away ... Hell Wonder The Rest 6i His Life The owner of the Fargo-Moorehead N. Dak. baseball club is a trusting man ... He was talking on the phone to a meeting of Mt. Vernon King directors yesterday afternoon.. He agreed to option a catcher to Mt. Vernon. When it was finally agreed as to how the two clubs were to split up the optioned player's salary, the question then arose as to which club would pay his expenses from North Dakota to Mt. Vernon ... No agreement could be reached. 'Are you a bunch of honest fellows?" asked the gent up in North Dakota. King directors assured him that such was the case. "All right, then," came the word from Dakota. "You fellows flip a coin in Mt. Vernon. I'll call it up here. We'll see whether you pay or we pay." The coin was tossed. It came up heads. "Tails," came the call from North Dakota. "Heads it is—you lose," said Harry Maulding from Mt. Vernon. "Okay, I'll give the boy his transportation money," said the man in Fargo-Moorehead. Thus, the deal was closed . . . But we:il bet he's a little suspicious the rest of his life. . . . Sam Throgmorton, left, of Mt. Vernon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Throgmorton of 2600 Cherry, starts cleaning up on an IS-pound catfish which he caught on Lake Wappapello near Popular Bluff, Mo.

Take, for instance,* the scene in their dressing room yesterday as rain washed out the game with Detroit . . . Manager Paul Richards wanders about watching his players munching cookies sent up from Kenedy, Tex., by Jim Busby's mother . . . "We can't beat the weather," he philosophies. "We're in fair shape on make-up games and maybe we can get our rotation of pitchers working on the timetable again" . . . With a longing look in his eyes, Richards mentions the Yankees Vic Raschi . . . "We haven't a pitcher than can go every four days like that Raschi . . . rthe best we can do is the same every five days . . . playing those four doubleheaders in six days in the east really sappedo ur pitching strength and we aren't over it yet—it's really a problem." . . . Ray Schalk, the old cracker who caught for the 1919 pennant winning Sox, bustles into the room . . . "the only time I get a chance to see a game all season and it rains," he fumes. "Where's that Phil Masi? (Sox catcher)— he's the only one I wai.t to see." . . . Phil finally emerges from the showers . . . "You're doing a fine job with those pitchers, kid," Schalk tells the 31-year-old Masi. "See that locLer over there in the corner?—it used to be mine." ... Later Masi volunteers: "I think we've gotten the maximum out of our pitchers . , . we've lost some heartbreakers, we've had 10 one- run decision games out of the last 20 and lost seven of them . . . Richards has a great knack of giving the boys confidence . . . and he's responsible for the whole league being more speed-conscious ... even the Yankees were running much more in our last series." A box of baseballs comes in with a note from Vice President Jockey Killed At Hollywood By Asseeiittd Prtt* INGLEWOOD, Calif., June 29. —Veteran Jockey F. A. (Freddie) Smith, one of the nation's foremost lightweight iders, died at a hospital last night. It was California's third race track fatality in five years. , Smith, a 38-year-old native of Camaguey, Cuba, was thrown to the track when his mount, FoUe- tin, broke a leg during the running of yesterday's eighth race at Hollywood Park. He was rushed unconscious to the hospital, awoke briefly two hours later, then died of head and neck injuries. An autopsy is pend. ing.

Stove Co. 8 :30 —Junction All-Stars vs. Mt. V. Auto-Lites. First exhibition games of the 1951 Softball season — with local clubs playing out-of -town opponents, are set for tonight at the Mt. Vernon city park. In the first game the Mt. Vernon Stove Co. will collide with Wayne City. In the nightcap two teams with perfect records to date will clash. They are the Mt. Vernon Auto- Lites and the Junction, 111., All Stars. In Softball play last night the Stove Co. edged the V.F.W., 2-1, and the Legionnaires topped the Eagles. 8-7. The Stove Co.-V.F.W. game was pitcher's battle between Gene Henry of the VFW and Roy Hayse of the Stove Co. Hayse, home on furlough from the Army, made his first pitching start of the season in Mt. Vernon. The VFW picked up a run on hits by Palmer and Randolph in the second inning. The Stovemak- ers knotted it in the third on a walk, a hit by Chapman, Allen England's sacrifice and a deep fly ball. The game was deadlocked at 1-1 into the top of the seventh when the Stove Co. shoved a run across on a walk and base hit to win. The Eagles gave the Legion a battle of it, rallying in the late innings to narrowly miss a victory. Johnny Avant, with four hits in five trips, and shortstop Jones, with two singles and two triples in four appearances, paced the winners. Catcher-Manager Bill Riggs was top hitler for the Eagles, with three hits in three trips to the plate. By Reusen r*ej mm By Associated Press ST. LOUIS, June 29.—Frank Hiller came within one hit last night of pitching the first no-hit game at Sportsman's Park in more than a quarter of a century —and that one hit glanced off an infielder's fingers. The hefty righthander faced only 27 battei-s — the minimum three per inning—in pitching the Chicago. Cubs to a 8-0 shutout over the St. Louis Cardinals. He struck out seven. Enos Slaughter spoiled the po tential no-hitter with a fifth inning single to left field. It was Slaughter's 1,700 hit during his career in the National League. "That ball just touched my fin gers," said Jack Cusick. the Cub shortstop.- "You can ask Frank about that." • The only other Cardinal to reach first base was Tommy Glaviano, the first man to face Hiller. He drew a first-inning walk. Both Slaughter and Glaviano were retired in double eplays, Stan Musial, the National League batting champion, struck out twice during the contest. Hiller, who won 12 and lost five for the Cubs last year and now has a 5-5 record this season, admitted it was the best game he ever pitched. After the game, Hiller disclosed that he injured himself in fielding a grounder by Billy Johnson during the third inning and that the injury pained him for the remainder of the game. He said he thought he pulled a muscle in the groin. Manager Marty Marion of the Cardinals said "it was the greatest game I ever saw .pitched." Hiller, who makes his home at Mission, Kas., is 30 years old and a former New York Yankee. The Cubs obtained him last season. Randy Jackson paced the Chicago attack with three hits, including a homer. Shortstop Cusick, the only Cub who failed to get a hit, made up for it by stealing home in the ninth inning. Hiller himself drove in one of the Chicago runs. The last no-hitter at Sportsman's Par'- was pitched by Jess Haines of the Cardinals against Boston on July 17, 1925. Harry Brecheen of :he Cardinals turned back Philadelphia's Phils oh one hit here during the 1949 season. The Happy Hiller posed with Slaughter for pictures after the game last night. "They call you an old man," Hiller told him. "You didn't look like it on tha' one tonight." TOTALS _ 3 » 2 CENTRAHA ? "l* 0 Cierten 3b 2 S J S Ni>rw»e4. si ?

GENERAL ADMISSION—«0e A Limited Number of Box Seat* May Be pitKhaaed at Ball Park Ticket Offlee BY JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Frank Hiller, a Yankee who got away, is the new glamor boy pitcher of the majors after his brilliant one-hitter for the ChV cago Cubs. Hiller faced only 27 St. Louis Cardinals last night, walking leadoff man Tommy Glaviano in the first and allowing a single to Enos Slaughter in the fifth. Both were erased on double plays. The Cubs backed up Frankie Boy with a generous 12-hit attack on Gerry Staley and Al Brazle for an 8-0 win. The Hiller story is Horatio Alger in reverse. Signed by the wealthy New York Yanks for a comfortable bonus when he came out of Lafayette in wartime, he never quite made the grade. Bouncing around in Newark and Kansas City with a couple o^ years in the Yankee Stadium bullpen, Hiller became disgusted. He was so dissatisfied he asked George Weiss. Yankee general manager, to trade hint after an 11-8 year at Kansas City in 1949. Weiss peddled Hiller to the Cubs for 525,000 on a condition sale. They forgot the conditions when Frankie came through as a 12-5 pitcher for Chicago last season. He finally had made good to complete the cycle of big leagues to minors to big leagues. The 30-year-old righthander never was better than last night. His previous big league high was a two-hitter agains tthe Phils last September. Hiller's sparkler, however, didn't have as much effect on the National League race as Monte Irvin's two home runs for New York's 5-4 edge over the leading Brooklyn Dodgers. Irvin hit Noc. 11 and 12 off Ralph Branca to clip the Dodgei-s' lead to five games. Branca took a 4-2 edge into the eighth, thanks to a leaky four-error defense by the Giant infield. Don Mueller's single and a bun single by Whitey Lockman set it up for Irvin to blast Branca's first pitch deep into the upper left field seats for his second homer of the game. Sheldon Jones, who relieved Dave Koslo in the sixth, poured a third strike past home run king Gil Hodges, who stood with his bat on his shoulder, for the final out of the game. The potential tying run was on third base. The National League staged another of its "dawn" games, due to rain interruptions at Cincinnati where the Pittsburgh Pirates finally edged the Reds, 7-5, in a game ending at 11:30 p. m. (CST). The Pirates got away on top and had a 7-1 lead after six innings. It barely lasted. Rain held up the game three times—for 44 minutes in the first inning, 52 minutes in the third and 25 minutes in the ninth. Cincy had the tying runs on base with two. out and 3-2 on Johnny Wryostek when time was called in the last inning. When they resumed, Wryostek fouled out to end the game. Eddie Sawyer's efforts to shake the Phillies out of their daydreams by banishing Mike GoUat to Baltimore apparently worked in a 3-2 win over Boston in 10 innings. Tommy Brown, Goliat's replacement, scored from second on a force out when Roy Hartsfield threw wild to the plate in the 10th. Casey Stengel needed two pitchers—Tom Morgan and Joe Ostrowski—to shut out Washington, 3-0, as the Yankees reduced idle Chicago's American League lead to one half game. The White Sox's scheduled day game with Detroit was washed out after half an inning. Pinch hitter Oiff Mapes came through with a three-run double off Sid Hudson in a typical Yankee explosion in the eighth inning. Hudson wilted in 90 degree heat after allowing only three hits through the frist seven innings. He faced only 22 batters over that stretch. St. Louis, Cleveland, Boston and Philadelphia were not scheduled. Veeck Starts His Work on St, L Browns ST. Veeck •y Asseclded Press LOUIS, June 27. — Bill and his associates have formed a corporation to reorganize the St. Louis Browns—if they can obtain the 75 per cent of stock demanded by Missouri law. The formation of the BBC corporation wa.s noted yesterday in the Daily Record, a legal newspaper. In an interview Veeck declared the corporation was formed to "speed up reorganization and rebuilding of the Browns if we gain control." In part, the listing which appeared in the Daily Record road: "...
