8 THE REGlL. i £R NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1951 Kings Jump Vincennes 12-3 To Open 2nd Half Race HAWLEY WINS, MT. VERNON UNLOADS 14-HIT ATTACK ON THREE YEL PITCHERS Five Doubles, Home Run By Popovich As Locals Stage 8-Run Fifth Inning To Win Easily; Paris, Danville Also Break On Top In New Race. The Mt. Vernon Kings, Paris Lakers and* Danville Dans jumped away to a first-place tie last night as the M-O-Valley League's second-half pen- pant race got underway. With Chuck Hawley hurling six-hit ball, the Kings unloaded 14 base hits off three Vincennes' pitchers to romp in, 12-3. Karl Zajackowski pitched Danville to a 5-1 win over the Centralia Zeros, and the first-half champion Paris Lakers tripped Mattoon 5-1 though the Indians collected 11 hits off Laker hurler Bob Williams. In limiting Vincennes to six hits lor his seventh win of the year, Hawley walked just two batters — but both of those free passes resulted in runs. Chuck was holding a 1-0 lead in the last of the third and had retired the first two batters before giving up walks to Wade Stallions and Frank Elble. Len Perillo then rifled a double down the right field line to score both runners and give the Vels a 2-1 lead. As things turned out, of course, the two runs made little difference. The Kings drummed out a big 8-run fifth frame to make things safe for manager Chuck. Hawley, who had three of the Kings' 14 hits, had scored the first run of the game in the top of the third when he singled, moved to second as Gaebe walked and KING NOTES MT.

Ernie Eveland Finally Wins Fight For Job PARIS, III..'July 5.—Ernje Eveland, the Paris schools' hot potato, has come full circle. He'll be restored to his full status as basketball coach of Paris high school, it was learned today. Eveland, who twice piloted prep cage teams to the state championship, was the central figure in a school board controversy that included efforts to oust him from the school system and that resulted in his 2 - emoval as coach. The old school board was evenly divided on the Eveland question— half its members wanted him fired for "insubordination" while the other half was pro-Eveland. This deadlock resulted in formation of a new school board.

Bob Sisk, former Centralia hurler, was the loser for the Vels. With a:2-l lead in the top of the fifth, Sisk fanned Johnny Finigan to open. : the inning. That was the last out that.he got. Hawley followed with a single, Gaebe walked, then Chuck Popovich clouted his first home run of the season, a drive over the scoreboard In venter field. When Solonano walked and Jim Given doubled, Sisk was replaced by Messel on the mound for Vincennes. PeteMilinkov smacked a double, Patino ^walked and Bill Stevens also doubled to greet Messel on the hill. Finigan fouled out for the second out. Hawley singled for his second safety of the inning. When left fielder Elble juggled the ball momentarily Chuck tried for secondhand was thrown out to end the big inning.- The Kings had 8 runs in on 6 hits and 3 bases on balls. Mt. Vernon added another run in the sixth, then got two markers in the ^seventh on singles by Palino, Stevens, Finigan and Gaebe.

With Solorzano benched, Popovich moved to shortstop, Patino took over third base, Stevens came in to catch and Ray Cassidy went to right field. Paris Here Tomorrow The Kings close the series at Vincennes tonight then return to Vets Park on the weekend for a two-game set; against the Paris Lakers. There will be single games on Saturday and Sunday nights. Phillies Sign Joliet Catcher By Associated Press FORT WAYNE, Ind., July 6.— Catcher Elmer Bell, 18-year-old Joliet, 111., athlete, yesterday was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies during tryouts here. Scout' Jim Keon said Bell will report next spring to the Lima, 0„ team of the Ohio-Indiana Class D League. Big time wrestling will be presented at Veterans Park on Friday, July 20. Wild Bill Longson, former five times World's Champion, will appear in the main event, two out of three falls with a one-hour time limit. A tag team match, two out of three falls, and two sensational midget wrestlers will also be added to a great St. Louis attraction. Walter Palmer, Chicago sensation, and hero of many television shows, will make his appearance here. Ralph Garibaldi and Joe Millich, other TV stars from the Marigold Gardens, will show their wares to local mat fans. This great card will be sponsored by the Mt. Vernon Athletic Assn., and arrangements have been made to seat-3500 at the ball park. Contacts have been made with the St. Louis wrestling en­ terprises, and Leon Balkin, pro moter in Evansville, who will fur nish this mat card. The amazing midgets, the sensations of wrestling on TV, have taken the country by storm. The first attraction asked by members of the Mt. Vernon Assn. was midget wrestlers. The names of the two midgets will be submitted later from a list of the following: Ski Lo Lo, the toughest and meanest midget; Pee Wee James, The Mighty Smith, Irish Jackie, Sonny Boy Cassity, and Tom Thumb, the most colorful of the midget stars. The complete card will be announced in a few days and plans are underway for the seating arrangements at the ball park and the printing of the seats. "Mt. Vernon mat. fans will see one of the greatest all-star cards ever arranged in this part of the country," promoter Balkin said. There'll Be Some Changes On the Browns Now That Bill Veeck Holds Power New Owner's First Move Is to Contact Holdout Frank Saucier, Who Was M-O-Valley League Bat Leader in 1947. By Associated Press ST. LOUIS, July 6 — Just as everyone suspected, there'll be some changes on the St. Louis Browns now that Bill Veeck has taken over as the new owner. "We have a couple of dollars to spend and we're going to spend them" said the fuzzy- haired idea man, who has a job ahead of him. Shortly after Veeck and 15 associates paid an estimated $1,850,000 for about SO per cent of the club's stock, Joe Gordon disclosed he had turned down a tentative offer by Veeck to become manager of the club. Gordon, manager of Sacramento in the Pacific Coast League, said Veeck telephoned him yesterday and asked "if I would be interested in coming to St. Louis immediately to manage the Browns." "I told him I was satisfied at Sacramento, that I had obligations to remain here (in Sacramento) and that my family enjoyed living on the west coast," Gordon said. Veeck had said earlier that several baseball men, including Gordon and Lou Boudreau, were under consideration for the job. Zack Taylor will continue as manager "until we find a fellow that is more suited to our operations," Veeck said. He added he thought Taylor had done a good job with what he had and that Taylor could always have a job with the organization "in some capacity." Will Contact Saucier The major league trading deadline expired June 15, ruling out any major trades until the end of the season. But Veeck has some other ideas he expects to produce some changes within a week or 10 days: Negroes will be given a chance to qualify for the team, he said. A pitching prospect in Japan is under observation by a Veeck scout. Efforts are under way to get holdout Frany Saucier back in the fold. Saucier, who hit .343 last season for San Antonio of the Texas League, decided to quit baseball when he couldn't agree with Bill and Charles DeWitt, the retiring owners, on salary terms at the beginning of the season. Veeck said he expected some word from Saucier, now at his Okmulgee, Okla., home, within-48 hours.

Kiner Out Pittsburgh Fans Rebel Smokey City Fans Stay Home If Big Ralph Ain't in the Lineup. By Associated Press PITTSBURGH, July 6.—It was a drab and lonely day at Forbes Field—all because Ralph Kiner wasn't around. The big slugger is in Mufti right now, under a three-day suspension for protesting too vigorously a ruling by Umpire Jocko Conlan. A puny crowd of 2,212—one of the smallest In recent years —trooped In disconsolately to watch the Pittsburgh Pirates grapple with the Cincinnati Reds yesterday. The Reds won 4 to 0, cause enough for gloom in this town, but even a Pirate victory wouldn't have fully satisfied the avid fans. Only the presence of their idol would have done that. Kiner has been the Pirates main box office attraction since he came unheralded to Pittsburgh in the 1946 season. He hit 23 home runs that year and the Pirates played to a home crowd of 759,117, a good attendance for a team that finished seventh. But what really made an impression was the attendance total posted the following year: 1,283.600 paid. Kiner's showing rather than the team's fortunes determine pace of the turnstiles. Pirate attendance during the Kiner regime proves it like this: Kiner walloped 40 home runs in 1948, helping the Pirates to fourth place in the League and first place in League attendance—1,283,600 paid. In 1949 the Pirates dropped to sixth place but still finished second in attendance 1,449,435—with Kiner blasting out 54 hmoe runs, his record. Last year the Pirates finished in the cellar once more but were third in League attendance—1,166,275—while Kiner rapped out 47 round-trippers. LittleGMlaiied At Stock Car Race MAZON, 111., July 6.—A wheel thrown from a racing stock car struck and killed a seven year old girl last night during the season's first program of night racing at the Mazon Speed Bowl. The accident was almost identical to one in which a 15 year old boy was killed at the Bowl last October. Victim of last night's tragedy was Sharon Ferrero of Wilmington. She was hit as she was walking with her mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Romines, Jr, and two brothers to seats in the north stands. A wheel on a car driven by James E. Mollan, Jr., also of Wilmington, worked loose as he was rounding a curve. The wheel bounded over a retaining wall at the edge of the bowl and hit the little girl. Mollan was unhurt.

Clash in Quarter-Finals at City Park Tonight. Wayne City Plays Royal Tornadoes. Salem Clubs in Semi-Finals. TONIGHT 7:15 — Royal Tornadoes vs. Wayne City. 8:30—Mt. Vernon Stove Co. vs. Mt. Vernon Auto-Lite. Two Salem teams advanced to the semi-finals of the 16-team Moose tournament at the Mt. Vernon city park last night by winning games over Centralia ball clubs. The Salem Lightning Butane rallied in the last inning to beat the Centralia Toby Motors, 11.10, and the Salem Elks decision- ed the Centralia Night Owls, 3-1. The-quarter final round of the tournament will be completed tonight. Wayne City which eliminated the Mt. Vernon ivToose team Wednesday, will clash with the young, hustling Royal Tornadoes and the Mt. Vernon Auto-Lites will meet the Mt. Vernon Stove Co. The Salem Butane — Centralia Toby Motors game was a wild one all the way. The lead changed hands several times and Centralia sailed into a 10-7 going into the last half of the last inning. Stevens, Centralia pitcher who tossed a no-hit game in the first round of the tournament, was unable to hold Salem in the final inning. The Salemites smacked four hits, Stevens walked a couple and four runs crossed the plate to give the Butanes the victory. It was Kenny Farrar, Salem, football coach, who drove home the winning run for Salem. Sterneck smacked a home run for the winners and Myers clipped a four- bagger for Centralia. Pitcher's Battle The second game of the evening was a pitcher's battle. Plumlee limited the Centralia Night Owls to four hits as the Salem Elks advanced to the semifinals, 3-1. The winners could get only five hits off Sanders, Centralia chucker. The Elks won the ball game in the top half of the first inning. They got two runs across without getting a hit as the Centralia defense committed two costly errors. ff sweet soft drinks leave you thirsty,; then Switch to Squirt NEVER AN AFTER-THIRST Fresh, clean taste gj you drink Squirt.** ' fresh, clean taste gflSI you drink Squirt,— never an after-thirst!

Phent 500 GIL HODGES SLAMS 27TH HOMER, DODGERS GRAB h GAME LEAD IN NATIONAL Big Brooklyn First Socker 1$ Five.Games Ahead Of Babe Ruth's All-Record Pace Of 1927; Yankees Regain Edge Over White Sox. By JACK HAND Maybe it's time to take this man Gil Hodges seriously. With 37 home runs in Brooklyn's first 73 games, the Dodger first baseman is running five games ahead of Babe Ruth's (ill-time record pace of 1927. Let's take a quick look at the Hodges-Ruth figures, month by month: HODGES RUTH APRIL 6 4 MAY 9 12 JUNE 9 9 JULY 1-5 3 1 27 - 26 The Babe didn\ hit No. 27 until July 8 in the Yanks' 78th game. Brooklyn won't play its 78th until after the All-Star Game break. No wonder the Brooks are 7 1 1_> games in front of the second place New York Giants and pulling away fast. Their recovery from a mid-summer slump coincided with Hodge's latest burst of homers. Gil ripped into Lurry Jansen for his 27th last night at Ebbets Field, a few seconds after Andy Pafko rilled a Jansen pitch into the stands. Although the Gjants wobbled big Don Newcombe in a four-run eighth inning, the Brooks clawed back with three more and went on to win, 8-4 It was Newcombe's 12th victory, a seven-hitter in which he struck out eight to boost his major league leading total to 83 If Hodges and the Dodgers are running away from the National Field, the American four-way race can provdie any missing thrills. New York climbed back into first place, a half game ahead of Chicago by bopping Washington, 8-2, in a night game after Chicago had been shut out for the first time 8-0, by Detroit's Freddie Hutchinson. Boston closed in on the leaders by manhandling Philadelphia, 8-3, with Ted Williams and Bobby Doerr hitting homers to back up Walt Masterson's brilliant relief pitching. The Red Sox are only two games back and Cleveland, rained out of its night game at St. Louis, is but 4'i> away. Bob Kuzava tamed his old Washington mates with four hits in his first complete game fore the Yankees. Gil Coan's two-run homer in the fifth, his third of the series, robbed Kuzava of a shutout. Gerry Coleman drove home four Yankee runs with » single and double. The game sprouted a "rhubarb" in the seventh on umpire Jim Duffy's ruling on a foul fly Yankee catcher Charlie Silvera muffed the foul near the Washington dugvj out. The ball appeared to strike the ground after tipping the mitt. Bobby Brown, Yankee third baseman scooped it up on one hop. Duffy however, ruled it a legal putout, claiming Brown got the ball on the fly. As the score was 3-2 at the time, Washington stirred up quite a fuss and Duffy chased coach George Myatt. Hutchinson gave only five hits in blanking the White Sox lor the first time. Only „ one Chicago player got as far % us third. Boston easeo a bit closer on the eve of its important three-game series with the Yanks by thumping the A's. Masterson pitched two-hit ball after replacing Chuck Stobbs in the fifth. St. Louis chewed up Chicago, 10-2, to breeze within a half game of the Giants. The Cards trail Brooklyn by eight. Cliff Chambers back on the beam after a wobbly six weeks, knocked off his third win in a row with a five hitter.i The Cardinals rolled up 14 hits. Wally West lake, late of the Pittsburgh Pirates, paced the bombardment on four Cub pitchers with a double, triple and single in six trips to the plate. Red Schoendienst got a double and a single; Enos Slaughter had two singles and Hal Rice, recently recalled from Rochester in the International League, delivered a single and double, driving in three runs. The Cards' fiftht extra base punch was a double by* Stan Musial. Chambers who now has five vcitories against eight defeats, was scored upon only in the third inning when the Cubs bunched three of their hits. Boston edged the Phillies, 7-6, in 11 innings but lost two starting pitchers — Vern Bickford and Johnny Sain — with injuries. Bickford pulled up with a sore shoulder after four innings and Sain's pitching hand was injured^ by deflecting Granny Hamner's grounder in the eighth. Both will be out a week. Sid Gordon's single with the bases full and none out in the 11th cost reliefer Jim Konstanty his sixth loss. With Ralph Kiner sitting out a three-day suspension, Pittsburgh succumbed to Howie Fox's pitching in a 4-0 Cincinnati win.
