'lit MONDAY, JULY 17, 1939 BEES BUM Witt! CHITS TO Yanks Trip Indians Twice; Red Sox Hand Tigers Double Defeat BY GEORGE KtRKSEY United Press S(aff Correspondent NEW YORK, July 17 (UP)— Every time the Cincinnati Reds tee] jjroiid of themselves and start strutting, some other club pins their ears back. The Boston Bees gave Die Reds a double dose of anti-pennant, tonic yesterday. "The Rhinelandeis had been crowing about taking two out of tlivee from the Olnnts In .the turbulent polo grounds series. Funny thing about tills Cincinnati, club, every time they lake It on the chin, they pull themselves together and get taci to their job with neatness and dispatch: The Reds lost only half a gome in the pennant race as the Cardinals took over the Glim Is, 3-1. Thus Cincinnati ;s in no Immediate danger wlUi a six-game lead. In losing to the Bees, 3-0, and 4-3, the Reds have themselves largely to blame. They couldn't hit Sailor Bill Posedel's chucking In the opener, and they made disastrous errors in both games. Posedel allowed six hits In the opener, scoring his ninth victory and his third shutout. Lee Orissom helped lose his own game by throwing Al Lopez's tap so far and high over Prank McCormick's head that Eddie Miller scored all the way from first. Later Lopez scored on a sacrifice fly. In the second game, Whitey Moore contributed tc ' his own downfall by flinging Jim Tinner's bunt past Bill Welter, which allowed the tying run to score. Turner was credited with his second victory of the year although he had to be relieved in the ninth with one out and runners on second and third. Fred Prankhouse did the fireman's act, retiring Prey and Bonglovaiml in his spot to end the game. Billy Waiter connected for four of the seven hits the Reds made ofl Tiirner. Eddie Miller, Bees' shortstop, suffered a fracture of the left ankle when he collided with Al Simmons in the. nightcap/and he will he out of the lineup for at least a month. Young Morton Coopei let the Giants down .with' eight hits to map the Cards' three game losing streak ? ( The ^Cubs >•aifd ;Jpodgers P. G. A.

Lefty Gomez pitched a seven- hitter in the opener, and Marius Russo let the tribe down with six hits In the nightcap. The Red Sox pennant bee kept buzzing as they triumphed over the Tigers twice, 9-2 and 3-0, to run their winning slreak to 12 straight.

The two research departments of the public library reported they had answered 6,341 questions last month for a gain of 9 per cent over the previous month. The cddest inquiry concerned the old-age pensions of the Ineas, mm FIL TO Byron Nelson, left, and Henry Pictml shake hands behind cup symbolic of P. G. A. championship. Plcard won the championship Saturday. Today's. Sport Parade Bj Henry Mclyemofc NEW- YORK, , July 17. (UP)— Henry -Picard beat Byron' Nelson one-up 'In;. 37...holes:" to win the championship of the Professional Golfers' Association at the Poino- nok Country Club on Saturday. Thai's the way it will stnnd in the record took; in neat black type, an inconspicuous line to be glancqd at and forgotten by generations and generations of golfers and lovers' of golf. But that is only the result. To say that Plcard beat Nelson, and let it go at that, is like saying the Indians beat Cnslcr, tiic Titanic hit an iceberg, and the Allies won the World War. There is a story back of that oiic Hide line, a story that perhaps has no parallel in golf. . ' : It•;' Is n story of men bringing golf to the highest pilch we have ever known. It is a story of me) matching miracles, one after another; a story of golf games so brilliant, so "superbly wrought lhat par became as nothing and birdies and even eagles were needed to win a hole. There have been many great rounds of golf played since the first Scotsman started hacking a feather ball about the dunes and gorse of St. Andrews. But not until Saturday, at Pomonok, did two competitors become super golfers at cue and the same time. It is hard to believe, I know, but Nelson had a 6T in the morning round, a five under par 67, and still*went in to lunch one down.. This would have convinced (he ordinary golfing mortal, that the fates had turned thumb,-; down on him, that it was not In the books for him to win. But Nelson was no ordinary golfing'mortal Saturday. He 'came back in the afternoon and shot a 32 on the first nine holes of the final round to clip par by five strokes. And what do you think it gained him? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Picard matched the 32. He met miracle with miracle, unbelievable shot with unbelievable shot. • Tills wasn't in a fifty-cent Nassau match, mind you. Picard and Nelson were playing for one of the great titles of golf, with mcncy and fame riding on each shot and with a howling gallery thundering at their heels. The pressure was there, and plenty, but neither man yielded an inch. Nelson lost, to be sure, but he didn't lose by cracking apart, giving under the pressure. He shot the 3Gth and 37th holes in par Complete I.ine of WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC Ranges and Water-Heaters WALPOLE'S ELECTRIC SHOP 110 S. Second rlione 314 figures, but that wasnl good enough. Picard slapped two birdie thrcei at him. Picard beat Nelson, iiol Nelson. , ....•' To show you what golf was played in the P. G. A. lounmtnenl —and I believe golf is reaching a "celling"' and can't possibly gei much better—Nelson was 38 under par daring the tournament and couldn't get any better than secom place, in his match play round! Picard fired 38 birdies, a pair' d eagles. 124 pars, • and only fivi bogies. There. wasn't a six on Picard's card, from the aliening day until the close. It, was such n tremendous!) thrilling match, the Picard-Nelsm final, that It flirt a lot to remove the bad taste of Ihe strike and dissension that marred the start of the. tourney. The P. G. A. is not al peace, however. Its final fall meeting should be worth the attention or the war correspondents. BASEBALL STANDINGS - ' Norllirast Arkansas League W. L.
