PAGE SIX 3 REFIffE TIE MI- JIM1 Blast Homers Under Lights Against While Sox Last Night By OEORQE KIUKSEY United Trtss Stafl Correspondent .NEW YORK, Aug. 23 tUP)-The rumor that the Yanks are sucker for night baseball is unfounded . . but definitely. Before 00,030 jKfsons packed into Comiskcy park last night In Chicago, the Yankees teed oil with five homers, three 'triples, a. double, and sundry singles to win their first nocturnal games from the While Sox, H-s. It took the Yanks six frames to get squared away. With the tount tied, 6-5, going Into (lie seventh they blasted In nine runs in (he last three innings. Clint Brown, making Ills iSlh relief appearance, .was slugged for five Jills in the final inning. The Yanks lifted their home run total to 22 [or 10 straight games, a new major league record. Crosetti, Dahlgren, Gordon, Rolfe, and DiMagglo hit the homers; Hotte, Keller and Russo lilt the triples; and.' Croscltl eol the double.

Feller broke his own record for contiol by ivnlking only one inan. His previous low mnrfc was two passes. He gme up nine Jilts, one of them a hofticr by Buddy Lewis with two on. The Indians put on a six-run rally In the sixth to rout Ken Chase. The Red Sox kept pace with Uie Yanks by defeating the Browns, 10-3 behind Denny Galehouse's seven-hit pitching.

(UP) — Arthur Donovan Is the new lightweight boxing champion of Ihe ivorlil. He Is a bit. fat for the title, par- llcularly In the hcnd. But lie won :t In Yankee Stadium last night. He won it for Lou Ambers by rendering a decision as questionable, ns a mongrel's paternity. Donovan, who .should run, not walk, to the nearest optician, gave Ambers five round. 1 ! because'of low 3lows slruck by Henry Armstrong. Not only were these blows no more dnnmglnff to Ambers titan a BB inn to the Maglnot Line, but Donovan in watching for Ihem forgot lo watch what Ambers was doing ,o Aimslrong. My, eyes were sharpened by picking boll weevils oil cotton in Georgia and I saw the new champion (Donovan Ambers, as I shall call him'from here out) strike as many non-Emily Post blows as did the victim. In close, Ambers qualified for any exclusive goat society by bulling from. here to yonder and he never niiolostal when he took his .elbow and 1 ' hit with it. Ambers was particularly good with his elbows and must have spent weeks In training getting (hem in good condition.

TUCKER Vnllet Press staff Correspondent ATLANTA, Ga., Aug. 23. (UP)Tiie Auburn Plainsmen will play cross-country football on a grander state than ever this year and wilh 21 letlemien and the fastest squad In Olxle should perform deeds lo be remembered at several points en the gridiron compass. Speed and more speed will feature the Auburn learn Ihat lakes on 11 opponents In six states. The schedule stacks up too tough for the Plainsmen to cherish Southeastern Cnference title ambitions but no foe need take them lightly. The key man on Coach Jack iVfaigher's squad is Cieorge Kenmore, the scrawny Americus, Ga., back who looks harmless but runs like a scared rabbit when lie tucks a football under his arm. Kenmore, a sophomore sensation in 1937, was out all last fall with a trick knee. Practically the entire Auburn offense hinges on whether the reportedly healed joint will hold up In Uie coming campaign. Dick McGowen can-led on for Kcnmorc in sterling fashion at left half last fall but .lie is a slower man iind the running plays and backfield personnel will have to be ad- Justed accordingly If little George can't make it. The line Is studded with veterans from tackle to tackle but reserve strength is,shy at the ends, where Jim Lenoir and Gus Pearson are the only candidates wilh experience. Four lettermen, headed by seniors Bill Nichols and George Wolff, will vie for tiie two lackle spots. No less than five veterans will give Meaghcr nn opportunity to juggle l"s guards as he pleases. Milton He well, an All-Southeastern guard, Is expecting his biggest year. And there are three experienced centers, wltli little to choose between Malveni Morgan and Getty Pah'chiid, the leading candidates Wilh Kenmore ut left Jialf back- slopped by McGoiven, the starting backftcld will also include Charley Haynsv.'crlb, an undcrslimg line- smasher at fullback, Marlon "Pig" Walker at quarter nnd Bill Mhns or Carl Hopper at the oilier lisilf Reserve strength is plentiful tor fullback, where Getcr Canlicll nnd Ross 'Dean, lettermen, and nufe Deal, a big sophomore, can step In to relieve Haynsworlli. After nn opening breather with Birmingham-Southern the Plainsmen start meandering.

Blows Cost His' Below Foul Line Lightweight Champ Title Read Courier News vmiit ads. NEW YORK, Aug. 23. (UP)-Thc pitcher-ami hew that Henry Annstrong can pitch 'cm|—went to the well once loo often, He lost his lightweight championship to Lou Ambers last night; lost it after winning 40 consecutive bouts against featherweights, lightweights, and welterweights- lost it because so many or his piston punelies landed en the belt line that five of the 15 rounds were taken away from lilrn because of fouls. The two tough mile liomtees went at It for 45 minutes of slam- bang fighting under the hot lights at Yankee • stadium, but to the customers back in the $18.50 ringside seats it must have looked like n dullish business. For Armstrong and Ambers were swarming on tsp of each other all evenlno ion" hammering away at the belly and the chin with punelies that never traveled more than a foot and a half. There were no long, clean blows, no knockdowns—just the hammer, hammer, hammer of sa»gy gloves en tired flesh. ° Tliey are going to meet again on Nov. 1—tills time for Armstrongs welterweight title—nnd it's a gocd thing, for it may settle some of the arguments that will stilt be going on tlien. There was a wide range of opinion en who won what rounds and why. Referee Arthur Dsnovan awarded eight rounds to Ambers and seven to Armstrong; Judge Frank Fullom gave the same verdict; but Judge Bill Healey awarded Ambers 11 rounds, Armstrong three and called one even. The United Press sccre sheet had seven for Ambers, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 1939 six for Armstrong and called the third and sixth rounds even. It was a tough one to score. There was never a Ume when punches weren't flying. Everybody agreed that Armstrong was hitting in foul territory, but everyone also agreed that it was unintentional. Henry the Hammev would lay his head down en Ambers' left shoulder and whale away. Not knowing MID- EC! I whether the body blows were above, on, or below the licit. Somebody says Hint knowledge removes fear. Now we understand why there are so many cowards.
