Centralia got its final run before the fourth frame ended, then Hall blanked the opposition in the final four innings. Pearson is Beaned In the fifth frame Hall hit Centralia centerfielder Freddie Pearson on the head with a side -arm pitch. Pearson slumped to the ground unconscious. He was revived and was able to walk to the dugout under his own power. A report' this morning said that Pearson would "probably be able to get back in the lineup tonight." Chuck Hawley was scheduled to pitch for Mt. Vernon in the final game of the series tonight. ""Best Defensive Show" Centralia sports editor Bob McGee said that the 6-0 win was the greatest defensive performance of the Zeros this season. Both second sacker Jerry Durin and shortstop Ken Dickens turned in some brilliant infield plays for the Zeros. King shortstop Oscar Solorzano, though hitless in five trips to the plate, also had one of his best nights on defense. Solorzano handled eight assists in clean fashion and turned two "almost certain" bids for base hits into putouts. Following the final at Centralia tonight, the Kings return to Vets Park for single games with the Mattoon Indians on Sunday and Monday night. At Danville on 4th Mt. Vernon hits the road on Tuesday, closing the first-half of the ,M-0-Valley season at Danville with a single game Tuesday and a July 4 doubleheader. yNomen Golfers To Tour Er\glartd ' By Associated Press READING, Pa., June 30. — Six women professional golfers will make a three weeks' tour of the British Isles. The team will meet six top British Isle amateurs July 13 and 14 at Sunningdale in the International Weathervane— 72 holes of foursomes and singles. Fred Corcoran, tournament director for the' Ladies' Professional Golfers Association, said the American team will consist of 2 Ohio State Golfers Play NCAA Finals COLUMBUS, O., June 30. — A couple of Ohio State University golfers who have played many a friendly round got together today for a 36-hole affair. This time, though, they were playing for the national collegiate championship. The contestants were blond, 22- year-old Tom Nieporte, former Cincinnati amateur champion, and six-foot, two-inch, 145-pound Don Johnson of Columbus. It is the first time in modern National Collegiate Athletic Association history that both finalists for the golf championship have come from the same university. Tournament Manager Ted Paysuer of Northwestern says he's certain it hasn't happened in the 29 years he has been associated with, the event. , Johnson and Nieporte are survivors of 170 golfers from 55 colleges and universities all over the nation. They qualified for match play with 150 and 144 respectively. Bob Lemon Swallows Fly, Trout Hooked CLEVELAND, June 30. — Bob Lemon, the Cleveland Indians pitcher, swallowed a fly last night. But, it was a trout who got hooked. Despite the fly, the Indians won, 4-1. Dizzy Trout of Detroit was charged with the loss.. Lemon's encounter with the fly came in the sixth inning. The bases were loaded. Lemon took a big breath to steady himself. Into his mouth popped an inch-long May fly called a Canadian soldier in the United States and a Yankee soldier in Canada. The dictionary says the insect is an epliemerid. Lemon didn't worry too much about the name as he called time and took out for the dugout. While he gagged and coughed, the crowd figured he was sick. So did Manager Al Lopez. Finally, the soldier retreated from the Lemon throat — to his stomach. Lemon, already plagued by an abscessed tooth, walked the next man but pulled out of danger and wasn't troubled thereafter.

(Dick) Conway, a rising young player in his first year of organized baseball, was killed by a thrown ball last night. The Twin Falls. Idaho, catcher, hit on the chest, dropped fatally injured on the infield of floodlighted John Affleck Park as fans awaited the start of a Pioneer League game. An emergency attendant said the 19-year-dld rookie apparently died instantly in what was the Class C league's first fatality since it was organized in 1939. Conway, a regular catcher and the league's leading home run hitter, was hit by the ball while playing in an unfamiliar first base position during pre-game warmup drills. The Lynn, Mass., teen ager looked up at pop fly at the saune time Manager Don (Jeep) Trower rifled the ball from second base to complete a practice double play. The ball struck him on the chest just above the heart. Doubles—Lou Bekeza, Centralia, 19; Stolen bases — Chuck Popovich, Mt. Vernon, 30. George Gatto, Centralia, continues to lead the league pitchers. Winning one and losing one during the week, his record now is seven victories and one defeat. The Mt. Vernon Kings still lead in team batting with a mark of .|319 but that averas:e is a dip of 25 points from last week. The Kings, who had all eight regulars in the top 20 league hitters for several weeks, have hit a disastrous slump. Solorzano, Popo\'ich, Given, Finigan and Fichtel still rate in the select '20' but thret^ others have dropped from the rating. Aurley Patino is hitting .277, Pete Milinkov .272 and Howie Bodell .262. YESTERDAY'S STARS Stove Co. And Auto-Lites Win Exhibition Tilts Mt, Vernon softball teams scored victories against out-of-town opponents at the city park diamond last night. In the first game the Mt. Vernon Stove Co. defeated Wayne City and in the nightcap the Mt. Vernon Auto-Lites decisioned the Junction, 111., All Stars, 8-1. CTharley Webb pitched' five-hit ball for the otovemakers while his mates tagged the ball for 12 safeties to beat Wayne City. The Stove Co. got three runs in the first inning to stay on top all the way. Dick Snyder, Stove Co. left fielder, had a perfect night at the plate. He socked two singles, a double and a triple in four trips to the plate. Bob Jones hurled a neat four- hitter as the Auto-Lites won over Junction. It was a close ball game most of the way. The Auto-Lites picked up single runs in the second and third innings and added two more in the fifth. After Junction got its lone tally in the fifth the Auto-Lites put the game on ice with a four- run blast in the sixth. Charley McKee, with two timely extra base knocks, provided the principal power for the winners. He tripled and doubled, both times (with runners on the sacks. liniE SPORT By Routon BATTING — Ralph Caballero, Phillies, tripled home Willie Jones in ninth with deciding run in Philadelphia's 3-2 victory over Brooklyn.

ILLINOIS POTENT BROOKLYN BUMS WILL HAVE TO PLAY BALL- 7 OTHER TEAMS IN LEAGUE Lose 5 of 6 Gomes After Almost Everybody (Including the Dodgers) Concede That They're Too Good for Notional Loop; Raschi Hurls 3-Hitter to Keep Yonks on Chicago's Neck. BY JACK HAND Who stole the music to the Dodger pennant waltz? The Ebbets Field organ has been hitting clinkers lately. A week ago the Brooks breezed along with a GVa-game lead. They could no no wrong. Then came Pittsburgh. Even a double loss Sunday to the Pirates was charged off as one of those things. But you couldn't laugh off losing two of three to the New York Giants. Last night's 3-2 defeat by the Phillies sounded the alarm bell. .Panic is not the word for a club with a 4 '2 game lead. But by dropping five of their last six, the Dodgers let the pack in. If they don't right themselves over the weekend, their lead actually will be in danger in the July 4th scries with the Giants. The runncrup Giants, rained out of a night game at Boston, picked up a half game when the Phils knocked off the Brooks behind Robin Roberts' five-hit pitching. Maybe Manager Eddie 'Sawyer had the right idea when he rend the riot act to come of his two complaced Phils. For the first time since May 12 the 19.50 champs ai-e up to the ..500 mark, eight games behind Brooklyn. Ralph Caballero, a utility infielder usually used as a pinch runner, came through with a triple —his first e.xtra base hit of the year—to win the game in the ninth. Caballero's hit plus Del Wilber's two-run homer in the fifth were just enough to offset iiome runs by Jackie Robinson and Duke Snider. Erv Palica was the loser. St. Louis and Chicago struggled through nine innings for a 6-6 tie in a game called to let the Cubs catch a train for Cincinnati. Because they played the full nine innings, this is not a "suspended game" but will be completely replayed at a later date. As in all tie games, the individual performances go into the official records. The Pittsburgh - Cincinnati game was postponed because of wet grounds. They all played in the American with the Chicago White Sox protecting their precious half-game lead by bumping St. Louis 10-3, for the Browns' ninth straight loss. Hoping to stretch their advantr age in a four-game set with the Brownies while the Yanks and Red Sox tear at each other's throats, the White Sox sent 18 batters to the plate in the first two innings to score eight runs. Howie Judson then coasted home with a seven- hitter to make his record 3-0. Vic Raschi kept New York right on Chicago's neck by dispo.sing of Boston with three hits, 2-1, in a night game won by Joe DiMaggio's eighth-inning double. It was Raschi's 12th win, high in the American League. Ted Williams' single in the Cards Gain 6-6 Tie On 4 Cub Boots ^ruins Commit 12 Errors In Three Games But Win the Series. By Asiocialed PrcM The St. Louis Cardinals muffed another chance to pick up a game on the league-leading Brooklyn Dodgers last night when they failed to get a decision here against the Chicago Cui )S. The curfew ended Iho contest at a 6-6 tic after nine innings. The Cubs had to catch a train for Cincinnati. It was not a suspended game but one which will be completely replayed at a later date. Brooklyn had lost earlier to Philadelphia. The defeat 3-2 clipped the Dodgers' lead to 4Vj games over the Giants, but kept the club 7% £;ames ahead of the Redbirds. The Cards jumped off to a 2-0 lead in the first inning of last night's two-hour and 39 minute battle. They held a 5-2 margin after two rounds but the Cubs tied with two runs in the fourth and another in the sixth. Then they went ahead 6-5 in the eighth on Gene Hermanski's home run. Taking advantage of a loose defense, the Redbirds knotted the count in their eighth in which Chicago committed two of its four errors of the evening. That gave the Cubs 12 boots in the four-game series. At Chicago, the White Sox retained a half- game lead on first place in the American League by handing the St. Louis Browns their ninth .straight defeat, 10-3. The Browns' manager, Zach Taylor, and infieldcr John Berardino were ejected from the game for arguing with umpire Bill McKinley. Don't let this be YOUR sad story! Wake up NOW. Values are way up!

Philadelphia, just escaped from the cellar two weeks ago, moved within a half game of sixth-place Washington by dumping the Senators in both ends of a twi-light- night doubleheader, 3-2 and 11-5. Bob Lemon, a sick man with a toothache, pitched Cleveland to a 4-1 edge over Detrot with a six- hitter. Lemon's abscessed tooth was lanced and packer earlier in the day but he became sick to his stomach and had to call time in the sixth with the bases loaded. He walked Charlie Keller to force in the only Tiger run when he returned.
