BI WU1IAM TtJCKEK • JJlWW rms Sports Writer •••ATLANTA,- G»., May 13. (U.P.) —Southp*« poison has been added 4o the Atlanta Crackers' witches' brew of pitching and the com- btoed menu appeared potent enough today to keep Manager KIkl Cuy- Jer"s Southern Association entry on top for some time to come. ' Lefties Forrest Thompson and £u1 McGowan gave the Memphis Chicks gastronltis of the batting »ver»ge Sunday, enabling the Crackers to sweep a double-header I to 1 and 6 to 0 and move out in /root of the pack by one game. Their closest rivals were the Now Ortecos Pelicans, who slipped into •eobnd over .the Chicks by virtue of_ dapping Chattanooga 13 to (i •nd holding on lor a 5-5 tie in the ^ecbnd game. Thompson and McGowan limited the Chicks to a total of only 11 blows in the two games as they became full-fledged members o: the Crackers' starling corns. Cuyler now has five front-line liurlers whom he plans to pitch in rigid I "client fielding. rotation.
