MONDAY, 1939 '(ARK.Y COURIER NEWS Sunday's Major League Games Produced Sensations And Sentiment >. BY GEORGE KIRKSEY United Press Staff CorresponrtenJ NEW YORK, JWIe W (UP) — Baseball dripped drama' and seiiti- inent today—deeds of Dizzy Bean, Gabby ' Hnrtnett, Schoolboy Howe, Lefty Grove, and Ted Lyons, who tailed time backward In Its flight; of Hank arecnberg and Ted Wil- llatms and tlicir mighty baps'; and last but not least, a testimonial to 1 crippled Pepper Martin, moving spirit of the St. Louis Cardinals. , Right In the front row we find tffezy Dean, .who has graduated wito the greatest "Sunday pitcher" In the majors with Ills third straight victory, n. 1-0 shutout of the ' Brooklyn Dodgers. Behind Dean's inspired pitching (he Cubs milled to snap their four-game losing streak with n double victory over the Dodgers, taking the nightcap, 9-1. Dizzy, using his uncanny control and curve masterfully, let the Dodgers down with six hits lor his secontl shutout. He had to be good to' win as the Cubs made,only two hits 6lf- Luke Hamlln and Tot Presstiell-one of them a •100-foot homer ; by Gabby Hartnett. The Dodgers Had two men thrown out at-the plate. Bill Lee,, whose Joss of effectiveness had started some folks to-lagging him as burnt out because of overwork Inst year, finally won his sixth game in the nightcap after five previous failures. Schoolboy Howe, .with only one victory to his credit this season, jjgaincd his magic and pitched the vigers 'to..'an 8-5 victory over the Yankees. For six innings he held the Bronx bombers'to three hits but eased up behind an 8-2 lead. Bump Iladley was batted out of the box and had his straight snapped. of six Hank Greenuerg slapped out his IGth homer and a double to drive in. four runs in tile Tiger assault. Manager Joe McCarthy of the .)-•'*. Today's Sport Parade By Henry McUmort NEW YORK, June 19. (UP)-u' Sydney Wcoxlerson Ihinks he is angry about what happened i»t Princeton last .Saturday, he should. talk lo any one of the 28,000 per, sons who paid good money to see him and his -tour American rivals run tlieir dismal mile. It was ajilly, publicize d . ns the mile of the century," because after the first quarter had been dawdled In M seconds, It was even money Ihat it would require Hie rest of the century for Die men to cover the full distance. They started the race nt a pace which Indicated they nil knew the snol fired from the starling pistol was only u blank, and Hint there was ivj cuuse for alarm. And they finished the race at a |mcc remindful of a. youngster "hurrying" home from school bad report card to show with papa. If Sydney Woodersoii was fouled on the final turn lor home by Elaine Hideout, and I believe lie was If un elbow poke in the ribs constitutes a foul, lie has no /one lo blame but himself. He was block- Ing traffic out in front to such an extent that any ol Ihe other runners who had a train to catch, n dale to keep, 01- a desire to finish a mile befprc sundown, had to get by him somehow. If no one had tried lo pass Woodeisoii, or hurry him up, all 28,000 of us would still be In Princeton Stadium watching him finish a mile in the remarkable lime of two days, two hours, and ten minutes fiat. 1 clocked him In the third lap with a Gregorian calendar, and was npl far oir. He seemed perfectly content to win if he could only.stay in front, no matter how long it took. Wcoders,:in, from where I sat, appeared to be a selfish little cuss. When the pistol went oil he placed himself in front, on the rail, and became a, two-legged read hog. In his sombre black suit, of the .Blackheath Harriers, lie looked like Hamlet in shorts. Jiisl like a supporting cast, Cunningham, Fenske, San Romani and Rideoiit played minor parts lo WoalorsorTs lend for three and a halt of the four laps. Then Kiileput. as if suddenly remembering- that he was a runner, not a walker, started running.

Lefty Oster- mueller bested Bob Feller in the opener, and ancient Mose Grove did the .honors for the Red Sox in the nightcap. Ted Williams' double with the bases loaded was the game winning punch in Grove's game. Ted Lyons, another of Ihe an- ^ient pitching brigade who keeps We'fylrig ed the Englishman. It was quite an unintentional nnil small bump,, but Wcoderson is a small Englishman and it threw him of! ills stride—and when i say threw him ofF his stride, I actually mean it threw him oil his stride.

The Lookouts, league-leaders for ft month pr more, fell from the Southern Association lop In n big way yesterday when they dropped a double-header to the lowly Little Hock Travelers, while Die Chicks were winning two from the Allnntn Crackers. The Knoxville Smokies. In llilrd place, snuggled in) close lo the I-ookouts with a double win over , New Orleans while nirmlng- ham and Nashville divided a twin- bill that muttered little in llio pennant ehnse. The developments left the Chicks out, in front by two full games and the margin appeared eioiijjli to keep Ihcm on lop until July i—ihe date the host learn for the annual all-star game will be selected. The Chicks wen Ihe first game /ronf Atlanta A to 2 when their star hurlcr, Herman Besse, limited last year's champions lo six hlls. Memphis got no more bbws, but coupled Ihcm in the first two Innings for all four Chick runs. The Chicks' rallied lo overcome a three-run lead and then scored four more tallies lo sew up Ihe second game and win it by a 7 lo 5 count. Lyn Stout relieved Gaddy on the. mound and held the Crackers safely In the closing Innings. At Little Rock, the Travelers made it three in a row over Cliat- lano^ga wilh a pair of 4 to 1 victories. Kraiisse held the Lookouts lo seven nils in the opener and Prendergast and Meadows let lliein have only four in Ihe nightcap as the challaiiooga altuek bogged down, it was Little Rock's first double-header victory of the season. Knoxville's leading sluggers, Woody Abernathy and Bud Hafey, stole the limelight In the Smokies' 8 to 5 and 4 to 3 wins over New Orleans. Abernalhy got four for five in the opener .while Hnfcy slammed a homer in each game. The Smokies were outhit U to 4 in the nightcap, but Hafey's two-run homer gave them the decision. The Vols shut Birmingham out in HID opener 8 lo 0 and received a coating of whitewash themselves in the afterpiece when old Sheriff Blake pitched a one-hitter and Ihe Bnrons won 3 to 0. Blake held the Vols hltless for slx ancl two-thirds innings of the abbreviated nightcap, but Bert Haas smashed a single with two out to deny the Sheriff a look-sec at the Hall of Fame. .Today's games are Atlanta at .Ojhattqnoosa, Memphis at Little Rock and New Orleans nt Binning hain.

He was presented with two brood mares, a- sow with her litter, a heifer, two milch cows, a beagla hound, bantam chickens, a plow, tractor, cultivator, hayrake, a set of harness, and an electric grindstone and churn! . Old Pepper, still laitf up with an injured wrist, jumped right aboard the tractor and drove it around .the park like a Roman gmdiator on a chariot.
