HOW THEY STAND AMKK1CAN . The brief splurge of fisticuffs almost overshadowed the outcome of the'contest and the brilliant pitching of [ireballer Ervvin Jones who allowed the Chevrolet Boys only one hit, a bunt single in the .sev- eiitli. a.s he hurled the Moiomien to a 3-0 victory anci into undisputed control of seronri place. i The fisticuffs came in the seventh innings when Pete Burnhani. manager and shortstop of ihc Chevrolet, nine, crashed into Dale Williams, ^lytheville Motor .vecomibasuman. to break up a double play by sending him sprawling to the ground. The Aiotonnen players took olfetiM 1 to Burnham'.s action anci in a few second the field was flooded wjtb play* ers and spectators. c After a blow or two was traded among the player.-, the innpire.s corralled the situation and play was resumed. A few .seconds before the rhubarb, Burnham had reached first on Sullivan-Nelson's only hit, of the t;;une when tie laid down a perfect bunt and beat the throw to first. He WPS thrown out at second on Sonny tx 1 "!- betier's fielders choice on the play Hint started the trouble.

As it was he faced only '22 baiters, one over the minimum for a seven inning contest. Of the 22 batters he tared, hx fanned 14 and allowed only one ball to be hit out of the infield. Jack Whittle, who worked all the way for Sullivan-Nelson, also turned In a masterful performance, allowing only three, hits, all singles, tint errors hurt his cause. He struck Jtic seven. Another well-pitched, one-hit performance was turned in in last night's first game when Tom Ivey returned to the mound to hurl the Phillips Motor Company Fordmen to a 6-2 victory over the Blythevillc Jaycees. Ivey gave up but one hit. a single by Jaycee Ralph Patton. to allow nil team to retain a third-place tie »'ith Sullivan-Nelson.

Horace calls it 'a son al nomenclatural tin can on the tail of an equinc's sell respect." but we figure it must have been oricinated by a two-buck bet- i lor who didn't think he'd ever see his choice coming home first. . . .
