Series Highlights By SHELDON SAKOWITZ other regulars on both clubs pre- BROOKLYN W) — The Yankees, viously had collected at least one who haven't made an error in the hit. first three games of the Series, have a priority on the record of committing the fewest errors in both four-game and five-game series. The 1939 and 1950 Yankees hold the mark for the least errors in a four-game series, two. In 1937 the Yanks went through a five- game series without an error. While Carl Erskine was bettering the World Series single game strike-out record in yesterday's game, his catcher, Roy Campanella, tied another. Roy was credited with 14 putouts in the game, twice achieved by Mickey Cochrane of the Philadelphia A's. Gil McDougald's infields single in the third inning yesterday was his first hit of the Series. All Say Howard Ehmke s He Faced Toughest Men PHILADELPHIA Iff) — Howard JEhmke, whose 24-year-old World Series strikeout record was bettered by Carl Erskine of the Brooklyn Dodgers Friday, thinks he pitched to the tougher batting order. . Ehmke set the record in 1929 when he struck out 13 in winning the first game of the World Series against Ihe Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The A's won the game, 3-1. Erskine struck out 14 New York Yankees Friday. The 58-year-old Ehmke took stock of the situation and said he guessed "records are made to be broken. My wife has taken it a little to heart. She isn't crying or anything you understand but just sort of downhearted." Then he turned to the batting orders. Compared to the Cubs of '29, Ehmke, now a 58-year-old Philadelphia awning dealer, thinks the Yankees "are just kids." "As a group they can't come anywhere near the Cubs who had Hack Wilson, Charley Grimm, Kiki Cuyler, Rogers Hornsby and Riggs Stephenson to name just a few." There have been only two double plays in the Series, thus far, and Brooklyn's Carl Furillo has rapped into the twin-killings both times. When Joe Collins and Mickey Mantle both fanned four times, they were one short of the record of striking out in a Series game. In the third game of the 1932 Series, Pitcher George Pipgras of the Yanks struck out five times against Chicago Cubs pitching, but Pipgras was the winning hurler. Californian Duke Snider disclosed he wasn't worrying about a thing "except maybe how USC will do against Indiana." Jim Hughes, a bullpen fireman for the Dodgers this season, put on a fireman's hat to aide in a I over, the Monmouth aerial attack campaign to prevent fires. Hughes' dad is a fire captain in Chicago and his uncle is the fire marshal there. Stengel isn't lookin toward the fifth game yet. "All I know is that Ford is pitching Saturday and if he wins we're in pretty good shape."

The prisoner was given a s&-months suspended sentence to district court for drunkenness. Four hours later, police had him in tow again. The charge: drunkenness. Casey Stengel figures some of his boys went fishing during yes- tersday's sunny afternoon. "Yeah, a few of 'em got nervous and went after bad balls when Erskine had two strikes on them," he said. Zippers Romp Over Carthage In 35-0 Tilt MONMOUTH — The Monmouth Zippers ran rough shod over Carthage at Sunny Lane field last night 35 to 0 in chalking up their third" win of the season. It might have been easily more one skied, but Coach Glenn Stavenhagen practically cleared his bench in the last quarter. Also the Zips had two touchdown plays called back, and suffered heavily from penalties. They lost 125 yards while Carthage had only a lone five yard setback. For the Zippers it was an all star cast with scoring well divided with both a good ground and aerial attack. The Monmouth line played fine defensive ball holding Carthage to only four first downs. Only one of these came by rushing, the others resulting from penalties. Meanwhile the Zippers chalked 17 firsts downs of their own. Monmouth marched down the field in the opening quarter, only to lose the ball on Carthage's 2 yard line. Carthage took over and on the first play Goodrich attempted to kick. Roger Pierce, Zipper center, and Bob McLoskey, left end, rushed in to block the kick which resulted in a safety for Monmouth to open the scoring. The Zippers came right back after a good return by Wood. After Olson had picked up 4 yards to bring the ball to the Carthage 40, Zipper quarterback Jerry "McKee tossed to right end, Bob McKee for a 17 yard gain. Ivan Haase picked up 12 more yards, and Woods went over right end from the 11 yard line for the Zippers first touchdown. Extra kick failed. The Zippers threatened to score again early in the second quarter but lost the ball on Carthage's 7 yard line. Carthage kicked and Walter Moore, reserve fullback, lugged the leather back from his own 40 yard line to the Carthage 22. Haase picked up two yards and McBride tossed a touchdown pass to McKee. McKee's kick was good and Monmouth led 15 to 0 at the half. It took the Zippers only eight plays to score in the second half. After Wood had chalked up two first downs, McBride fired one from the Carthage 40 yard line to McLoskey for another Monmouth touchdown ... the most sensational play of the evening. Pierce made a beautiful block to get Mc­ Loskey in the clear. McKee's kick was good. Before the third quarter was ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL (By The Associated Press) Lincoln 8, Peoria Manual 6.

SPORTS IN BRIEF By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York—Carl Erskine set a record of 14 strikeouts as th'e Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees, 3-2, in the third game of the World Series. Virginia Water) England—Spearheaded by Capt. Lloyd Mangrum and Sam Snead, America's Ryder Cup team won three ant of four matches to take a 3-1 lead over the British in the first day of the International Series.

Fill that next job opening with a disabled vet. {Carl Erskine Is Dodgers' Hero of the Hour After Record-Breaking Pitchin By WILL GRIMSLEV BROOKLYN MP) — It's often a short hop from the role of "hero" to that of "goat"—and vice versa —in'the World Series. Ask Carl Erskine— On- Wednesday, Carl gives up three walks, two hits and four runs to the Yankees in the first inning and he's not permitted to start another. He's sent to the showers where later he dejectedly remarks: "I was wild. I couldn't control my fast ball or my curve." On Friday, just two days later, Erskine is the toast of the diamond world, winner over the Yankees 3-2 on a masterful pitching performance and new all-time strike- dut king of the World Series with 14. "My overhand curves were breaking in there pretty good," he said. Ask Mickey Mantle.— On Thursday, Mickey, the golden boy of the gold-plated Yankees, smashed a two-run homer in the eighth to give New York its second straight victory, 4-2. "It was maybe a screwball," said the grinning, taciturn Mantle as flashbulbs popped and reporters crowded his knees. On Friday, 24 hours later, the same Mickey Mantle strikes out four times in successior/, looking foolish in his wild swings at Erskine's benders. No flashbulbs this time. Just a question: "What happened, Mickey?" And the reply: A cold, dagger-like stare. Ask Jackie Robinson— Through the first two games, this superb athlete who long has been the driving force of the Dodgers has one sickly hit in eight appearances and misjudges a fly ball which goes for a home run that leads to the Yankees' second victory. 'I just muffed it, that's all," says the frank Robinson. "I played it like an infielder. Shoulda had it in my pocket." i In the third game on Friday Jackie gets three hits in four trips, including a double, scores on a squeeze bunt and makes a sensational catch in shortstop territory when the sun blinds Peewee Reese. "Doing a little better," ho comments solemnly in the dressing foofn. Ask Joe Collins— On Wednesday, the Yankee first baseman poles' a seventh inning homer which breaks a 5-5 tie and opens the way to a 8-5 New York victory. He's the center of attention in the winning dressing room. On Friday, Collins strikes out four times in succession against Erskine and dribbles out weakly to the pitcher in the ninth with the tying run on base. A lonesome figure in the locker room. By ORLO ROBERTSON BROOKLYN t^- Carl Erskine, .slim 26-year-old righthander from Anderson, Ind., was the toast of friend and foe alike after establishing a World Series strikeout record in Brooklyn's 3-2 win over the New York Yankees. And when the Dodders got through heaping praise on their ace in the dressing room following Friday's triumph, they turned to congratulate their sore-handed catcher Roy Campanella, whose eighth inning homer provided the winner margin. Erskine fanned 14 Yankees to erase the series mark of 13 established by Howard Ehmke of the Philadelphia Athletics rigainst the Chicago Cubs Oct. 8, 1929. Yells and friendly banter, missing after the Yankees won the first, two games, rang through the Dodger quarters. Erskine planted an appreciative kiss on Campanella's. sweating forehead. Over in the Yankee dressing room, the foiir - time champions paid full but grudging tribute to Erskine. "That pitcher stopped us more g Performance than anything else," said Manager Casey Stengel. "Vic Raschi pitched a darned good game but we didn't do much hitting for him." Mickey Mantlo was the angriest of all the Yankees—angry at himself for striking out four times along with teammate Joe Collins. Erskine said he never knew ho was going for a record. "I never knew how many strikeouts I had," he said. "I just knew we had our backs to the wall and I had to keep pumping 'cm in. Sure it was a big thrill when they told me afterwards I had broken the strikeout record. But I got my biggest kick, I think, in getting this win . which wc needed so much," Lewistown Gets Late Touchdown To Defeat Valley Lewistown pushed over a fourth quarter touchdown to grab a 12-7 win over Valley Friday at Fairview. Each team had scored in the first period, but Valley had a 7-6 lead when they made the extra point and Lewistown missed. The 7-6 score held up until the fourth period when Don Thiol- bcrt scored the winning touchdown for Lewistown. Lewlalown (12) Krulac Downs Smith Mnthcw Scalf Myetich M.

With the ball on the Carthage 35, McBride completed another pass* to McLoskey to the 14. Haase picked up six after which McBride hit McKee for another touchdown. McKee made the kick good and Monmouth led 29 to 0. Perhaps the best run of the evening came in the closing moments of the third quarter when Moore scampered.40 yards over the goal line, but the officials called it back and penalized the Zippers 15 yards for clipping. However Moore got his opportunity to score in the final quarter when he single handed bulled his way over from the Carthage 45 yard line in about five plays, scoring from the 5 yard line. Moore's play was pleasing to Coach Stavenhagen for he now has two fine fullbacks in Wood and Moore. Sophomore Phil Schweibert, subbing for Olson at right half, also turned in a good game. Without a first stringer left in the lineup the last quarter the reserves held their own against Carthage. At no time during the game did Carthage present anything that looked like a scoring threat as they were completely bottled up for the evening. Monmouth scored 216 yards by rushing and gained 164 yards by passing, having completed 9 out of 20 passes. Carthage made 44 yards by rushing; completed one pass out of 12 attempts for a total of 6 yards.
