PAGE FOURTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Dodgers Back In i\, L Lead. Bosox Gaining Kinder Keeps Control of Cliisox in 3-2 • Win By JOE REICHLER Associated Pre»» Sports Writer Brooklyn is back in the lead In the National League today, but all ayes are on the Boston Rod Sox and their ancient righthander, Ellis Kinder. Boston climbed to within on game of the American Leagu pace-setting Cleveland Indians yes terday as Kinder hung up his 18tl consecutive triumph over Chicago' White Sox with a 3-2 victory in relief. The tall Tennesseean, who wll be 38 next month, would be the best pitcher in baseball if h could face the White Sox all th time. He owns a 20-3 lifetime rec ord against his windy city "cous ins." They haven't beaten him Since the middle of the 1948 sea son. A home run by Fred Hatfield his first of the season, snapped a 2-2 tie in the seventh and gave Kinder his fourth victory of the season. Kinder replaced starter Bill Henry in the top of the seventh when the rookie southpaw raised a blister on his pitching hand. Saul Rogovin was the loser. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Cardinals caught up with their nemesis, Dave Koslo, battering the left- hander for six runs in five innings as they swept a doubleheader from the Giants, 8-7 and 8-2, to knock New York out of first place. St. Louis won the first game in the bottom of the ninth against Kosio's successor, George Spencer, when Enos Slaughter hit a home run with two out. Gerry Staley, backed by a 12-hit attack against three hurlers, including a home run by Red Schoendienst, won his ninth against three setbacks in the nightcap. Brooklyn swept past the Giants into the No. 1 spot by edging the Chicago Cubs, 3-2. The Dodgers scored all their runs in the second Inning, two of them coming on Gil Hodges' two-run homer. The Boston Braves won their first game for new manager Charlie Grimm with an 18-hit, 9-4 victory over Cincinnati after veteran southpaw Ken Raffensberger had pitched the Reds to a 1-0 masterpiece in' the opener of the twin bill. Ralph Kiner clouted _his seventh homer with two out 'in the ninth inning to give the Pittsburgh Pirates a 2-1 victory and a split against the Philadelphia Phillies. Curt Simmons pitched a seven-hitter for his fourth triumph in the Phils' opening-game, 5-1 victory. In the American League, Lo.u Sleater won his third straight for Washington and Ted Gray gained his fifth for Detroit as the Senators and Tigers divided a doubleheader. Clyde Kluttz' infield grounder scored Pete Runnels from third base with one out in the ninth to give the Senators a 4-3 first-game victory over Virgil Trucks. Rain washed out the scheduled doubleheader between the Browns and Athletics in Philadelphia and the single game between the Indians and Yankees in New York. Illinois Opens BidWednesday For NCAA Spot CHAMPAIGN, 111., June 2—/P— Illinois, Big Ten co-champion, and Western Michigan, Mid-America pennant winner, will open a best- of-three series at Champaign Wednesday for the NCAA district No. 4 baseball title.

Sports Roundup Everyone Should See '500' At Indianapolis at Least Once By OAYLE TALBOT INDIANAPOLIS. June 2 tP — Now that the roaring is put of our ears and the temples have ceased lo throb gently, we are willing to concede that everyone should see and hear this city's famous auto race at least once. It is, as its enthusiasts claim at the drop of a gasket; this nation's one really super sports spectacle, comparing more closely than any other to the English Derby in color and sheer magnitude. There is a good posibility that they sell the 150,000-plus tickets they talk about. As only a one-time loser, we cannot claim yet to understand the fascination which causes otherwise sound citizens to pay up to $30 a chair at the "500", but there is no denying that the event has something besides noise. Critics of the race used to say that its giant crowds turned out because of the implicit promise of sudden death. That cannot hold good much longer, for this marked the fifth straight year without a driver fatality, and the throng cheered the victory of 22-year-old Troy Ruttman on Memorial Day and said by veteran observers to have been the biggest yet. Love AutomobUeii It might be that the "500" bugs simple are, for the most part, persons who love automobiles and like to watch them' go fast and are thwarted race drivers, themselves. At least we feel sure, having watched faces, that most of those who witnessed Friday's spec-, tacle were more genuinely tied up in the proceedings than is the average fan at a big horse race. There was no betting and the bars were closed all day. You had to go looking to find a drunk. Yet these thousands sat there hour after hour and watched the little cars scream past —• 'round and round and round. When the leader snarled down the straightaway in front of them, they usually stood to get a better look. It takes some explaining. Admittedly there was a thrill for a few seconds at the start, when the pacing car drew aside and the packed racers went tearing into the first turn nuzzling each other. It sent a shiver up the old spine. But quickly, then, the field began to string out, and within a lap or two the boys were giving each other a wide berth. It became a question of which car of 33 could travel 500 miles the fastest without breaking down or hitting a wall. Pretty Dull Later To one observer, who had gotten in free, the whole thing became pretty dull about the second hour. The only way he could tell who was in front was by watching the Scoreboard across the track, and as it later turned out a number of the employes who were operating same had their lapses. The official announcer told what was going on only while five of six cars were going past and making several thousand decibels of sound, so he wasn't much help. But none of this appeared to detract from the supreme enjoyment of the experienced multitude. The sat and wajtched. Probably they knew the cars by their colors. By some inner instict they probably knew which driver was in front, and by how much over whom. To them the ear-splitting racket was a lullaby. There's got to be an explanation, and the only one we can think of at the moment is that more persons own cars than own horses. We wish we owned the speedway. Double Win for Watertower Girls Wood River Eagles Shade Gleu Crossing Purcell limited Glen Crossing to ix hits as the Wood River Eagles ained a 3-2 triumph, Sunday. The agles found Tutka for 11 safeties o win a tight victory. Second in Row Kirkpatrick Wins Feature Sunday at Alton Speedway Ned Kirkpatrick, heavy-footed driver of Hartford, won the 25-lap feature event at the Alton speedway Sunday evening before a near capacity crowd. It was the second straight week that Ned has won the feature event and ties him with John Allison, Alton, who also has two feature wins this season. Finishing behind Kirkpatrick in the feature were John Allison, a close second, and Rusty Bell, third. In the »emi-feature event of 15- laps, Jack Thorp of Alton, making his fir«t appearance on a stock car trade walked Off with first money. WrangJer finished in second place and Booten third. The te»m of Ned Kirkpatrick, Tom l^efJer, and Page Baker won the r?lfty handicap over the team ot Lou Therry, John Allison and H*rry Farmer won the dog race with £4 her finishing second and Norm Robinson third. Kirkpatrick also won the opening 10-lap heat race of the evening over Jack Dively and Tom Lefler. Jim Nelder, Godfrey, won his first race of the season in the second heat event with Rusty Bell and Marshall McDuffy finishing second and third respectively. Page Baker, Cottage Hills, won the third heat with ease finishing ahead of Lou Therry and Bill Wrangler. Mac McGowan, John Allison, and Elmer Brunough, were the three winners in thai order in the fourth 10-lap event. Page Baker was the fastest qualifier of the evening with 17.30. The near capacity crowd witnessed several turnovers &r>d crashes during the card but luckily no one was injured. Watertower Girls Softball team were a little better than the Dads team during the weekend. The girls won a double bill while the best the Dads could do was gain a split. Saturday evening the* girls defeated the Southside Girls from Belleville 4 to 1 and Sunday evening won over the Gillespie Girls at Gillespie 5 to 1. Excellent pitching was the big factor in both victories. Sweeten- ham hurled a one hitter against the Belleville team and Allen threw a four hitter at the Gillespie team.

More than 7000 golfers, most of them just duffers or weekend golfers, can say today: "I did." Nearly all of them, however, did it with handicaps but there .were a few thp.t topped Hogan's score without a handicap. Last Saturday the National Open champion turn- en in a par 71 at the Northwood country club course in D.allas, where he'll defend his title starting June 12. A total of 7511 of the 55,105, reporting in the "Beat Ben Hogan" National Golf Day Saturday, turned in better cards than the mighty mite from Texas. All who participated paid an entry fee of Jl in the event sponsored by the Professional Golfers Association and Life Magazine with all proceeds going to the national golf and U.S.O. funds. John Haine, 79-year old Tres Pinos, Culif., player, had the lowest. He shot a 74 and with a handicap of 14 turned in a 60. Eight-year old Diane Wilson of Kansas City had a 117-48-69. General Omar Bradley, head of the joint chiefs of staff, scored an 85, which was reduced to 74 by his handicap of 11. Sen. Robert A. Taft (R-Ohio) had a 94-16-78. Charlie Grimm Divides Pair As Braves 5 Pilot Replaces Tommy Holmes In Sudden Move By CINCINNATI, June 2, Cholly Grimm, the laughing bo; of baseball with the sobering las name, look over as manager o the Boston Braves yesterday and let it be known that "there'll bt no immediate changes." Then, characteristically, he 1m mediately optioned off two player lo Milwaukee, recalled a third from that Triple-A Boston Farm club, and named Walker Cooper as field captain. The decision by the Boston brass to replace likeable Tommy Holmes with the equally popular Grimm came with startling suddenness late Saturday. Holmes had been in the driver's seat less than a year. Tommy \vas stunned at the news but rallied gamely and bowec without a murmer to the change ordered by General Manager John Quinn and Owner Lou Perini. The> said they would find a place for th ex-Boston outfielder in the Braves system and explained they replac ed him because they thought he needed more experience. Grimm, who left the manager ship of the Milwaukee Brewers foi the elevation, got his feet wet yes terday as the Braves tangled with the Cincinnati Reds in a double header and split even, 1-0, 9-4. Managing in the big leagues isn' new to the genial Dutchman. Twice he stepped in as manager of the Chicago Cubs during mid-season the first time replacing Rogers Hornsby 20 years ago and piloting Chicago to the National League pennant. Joe Finn Named On Star Team of Catholic Loop Joe Finn of Marquette won a place as infielder on the Catholic League all-star baseball team, an ndhnced today by Bro. Williarr Callahan, S. M., president of the leagues. Bob Hartnett of Marquette was named to the outfielc of the second team. Honorable mention was given Don Ferguson, Jack Acker and Bob Kilgo of Marquette. The Explorers, with a record of 6 won and 5 lost, finished third in the league standing. Mercy High with 11-1, won the title. The Alton school ranked fifth in the competition for the all-sports trophy which was won by Mercy of St Louis. Marquette gained 750 points in football and 500 in baseball. Because the Explorers don'1 play basketball, it is virtually impossible for the Blue and White lo win the all-sports trophy. The Explorers' 1200 points, gained in wo sports, was considered an excellent showing for the season.

"You certainly couldn't ask for much more than what those rookies* did to the Cubs out on the hill yesterday," reflected 'Dressen. "I'm proud of 'em and expect a lot of help from 'em." He meant Ben Wade, 29, who kicked around in the minors 11 years before joining the Dodgers, and Joe Black, 28, up from Mon (real, St. Paul, and the Cuban winter league. They combined to collar the Cubs with five hits for a 3-2 Dodg. er victory. "Dressen has his sensational fledgling flinger, Billy Loes, ready to face the third-place Cubs today as the league pacing Brooks strive for their fifth straight win. Loes pocketed five victories in a row before being stopped by the New York Giants last week. Until the eighth inning yesterday, Wade faced only 22 batters, fanned seven, walked one and yielded but a blooper single. Then he tired and was nicked for two singles-and a pinch two-run triple by Cub Man ager Phil Cavarretta. Black followed up with some spectacular rescuing. He struck out Eddie Miksis to retire the side in the eighth with Cavaretta left stranded on third with the tying run. In the ninth, with only one out, the tying run on third and the winning run on first, Black set down Toby Atwell and Dee Fondy swinging on just seven pitches. The feat preserved a fourth victory for Wade. * Black now hasn't permitted a run in 14 innings while fanning 11 and yielding seven hits. Watertower Splits Double Header Defeat Busch's 9 to 0; Lose to St. Charles ' Watertower Dads Softball team split a Memorial weekend doubleheader by blanking the Busch's team of Jerseyville 9-0 Saturday evening at the Olin Playground and dropping an 8-4 verdict to St. Charles at St. Charles, Sunday evening. Cal Johns limited Busch's to four hits in the Saturday game. Bill Wohnlich limited St. Charles to four hits also Sunday, but served up two home run balls in the second inning with men on base to contribute to his downfall.

The 22-year-old Ruttman, of Lynwood, Calif., and car owner J, C. Agfljflnian of San Pedro.

Vukovich and owner Howard Keck of Los Angeles were pa ill $18,69:!,18 for 17th place. The check was bigger than any paid below second place because Vukovich won $15.000 in lap prizes for leading 150 of the 200 laps.
