S.S. L.F. C.P. R.F. Submitted by: Address: The View from Here ^^fdU A PAIR of New York sports writers were displeased .with Referee Harry Kessler's report card in the recent Floyd Patterson-Hurricane Jackson television fight. ' With the unnecessary scream- Ing they displayed, one would think H was the first time a referee and judges were ever engaged in a wide, wide difference of opinion. As a matter of fact, New York officials are famous (infamous?) for their notorious split (and worse) decisions. In the sloppy Patterson-Jack•on duel, Kessler (the closet man) jave the edge to the Hurricane while his ringside partners leaned rather heavily toward young Floyd. It could be (as it so often happens) that the two writers picked on Kessler because he was not a native New Yorker . . . nor even a New York resident. They felt it was fairly safe to unload on him even if he is one of the best referees in the racket today. One suggested, rather slyly, a six-month suspension for Kessler. (You'll find his comment in ai> other column on the facing page.) The other flatly said it was time for the millionaire businessman to "retire to his farm in St. Louis." Well, what we have to say on the matter is simply this: we did not mark our TV card too dissimilarly to Kessler's. Opinions, you know, are free, and our opinion is that Patterson had better fatten up on some more pushovers before he even thinks about climbing in with Ancient Archie Moore. Retired Rocky Marciano would make Hungarian goulash out of all three of them and Moore in turn would treat the kid Patterson with equal culinary disrespect. If ludicrous Jackson had had any kind of right hand sock with a rock it wouid've been good night and sour dreams, Floyd! O.K., so the windless Hurricane isn't much of a boxer. Everybody agrees on that, apparently. So what does that make Patterson? It makes him, at best, a split- decision winner over Jackson, that's what. Arkansas' leading sandlot or semi-pro baseball club will have a chance this season to represent the United States in the second annual global world series in Milwaukee's County Stadium. Sept. 7-12.

' Caraway's Red Birds are defending state champs. We understand some Southern Association baseball club owners have discovered a new blame for rusty turnstiles at their parks. They don't blame poor players, lack of hustle and lack of color. No, sir. They don't even blame television! People are staying away from our parks, they cry, because of cheap home air conditioners. If the regular season football schedule is an indication of things to come in the 1957 Cotton Bowl game, Jan. 1 will be a big day in the Dallas classic. At the Bowl ... on the regular season (as they say) . . . these teams will see action: Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Texas, TCU, Baylor SMU and Texas Tech.

Walnut Street Blylhevllle Cincinnati Leading ML Again FINISHING TOUCH—Jack Terry got revenge last night at the American Legion Stadium. The week before, Chris Belkas unmasked him, this cutting short his life as the Purple Phantom of the ring. Last night, Terry erected an eight-foot-high fence around the ring so Belkns wouldn't be able to escape. It proved effective as Terry emerged the winner after referees Virgil Hatfield and Mike Meroney called a halt to the punishment Terry was dealing out to Belkas' neck. The loser spent several hours in the dressing room after the fight with hot towels on his neck. In the windup, Speed Lowrance and Mike Sirois fell to Chris Averoff and Paul DeGalles. A packed house watched the show. (Courier News Photo) Midget Phils Trip Pirates; KO'd Third Time The Midget Phillies took it on the nose for the to the Pirates by a score of 7-3. The Pirates combined hird time in "Y" Midget league play at Pee Weetimely hitting with good clutch pitching for the victor League Park yesterday afternoon as they went down ty. The Phillies loaded the bases in the first Inning, as Ronnie Carson was wild, hitting Grim and Francis and walking Leonard. But they were unable to tally as pelsen fanned and Richardson rolled out to first. The Pirates scored three in the third AS Jerry Enmon drew a walk and C. Flowers was safe on an infield boot, Krutz walked, lining; the bases. Hrabovsky rollt-i lo first, Enmon scoring and then Glenn Buck came through with A hit, cleaning the sacks. They tallied four more in the fifth on only two safeties. Flowers' hopper was bobbled and Krutz singled. Hrabovsky doubled j down the right field line scoring Flowers and Krutz. Successive errors on Buck and Carson coupled with a fielders choice to allow two tebbetts Uses Off-BeatStyle Pitching to Nip Phillies in 10 By ED WILKS Hie Associated PreM Manager Birdie Tebbetts, who learned to handle pitchers as a catcher, has his Cincinnati Redlegs back in the National League by using an off-beat pattern that makes starters out of reliefers and reliefers out of starters. Birdie got the job done last night In a 7-4, 10-inning decision over the Philadelphia Phillies. He yanked Hal Jeffcoat out of the bullpen for a starting job, followed with ace reliefer Buster Freeman and then wound up with unbeaten starter Brooks Lawrence, who won his eighth. It was the second time Tebbetts has used Jeffcoat, the ex-outfielder, as a starter. Both turn-abouts led to victories that pushed the Redlegs into first place. They moved back to the top last nighl as the Milwaukee Braves pushed the Pirates into second place, defeating them 3-2. No other NL games were scheduled. In the American, tne New York Yankees retained their SVa-ga lead as Mickey Mantle sent bis 25th home run rocketing out of Detroit's Briggs Stadium to beat the Tigers 7-4. Chicago's second- place White Sox defeated Baltimore 5-2 and Kansas iCty clipped Washington 4-3. ' Jabbo's 12th Clout Jeffcoat's only other starting job this season was against thi Phils June 7. He didn't last, but runs to cross the platter. The Phillies posed a threat in the bottom of the fifth, as Mul- Hns singled _to lead off. Leonard fanned but Oelsen was safe on a Pirate error. Richardson walked filling the sacks. Meeks was 'safe in an attempt to catch the lead runner at home, as Muilins scored. Daniels then singled to score Oelsen. Carson then acre down and fanned Grim to end the rally. Ronnie Carson was. the winning hurler and tr. W. Mullins the loser. Sach team had three hits, but the Pirates made theirs pay off in more effective fashion. the Redlegs won it and took over first place. They gave up the top spot to the Pirates last Tuesday. It looked as if they were going to get the lead back in a breeze last night, racing off to a 3-0 edge that included Ray Jablonski's 12th home run. But in the end, the homer-happy Redlegs had to beat the Phils on singles. They clipped losei Harvey Haddix for four in a three-run 10th. Roy McMillan's blooper over second drove in the tie-breaker. The Pirates fell half a game behind as the Braves scored the winning run on Dick Groat's third-inning throwing error. Warren Spahn pitched an eight-hitter for his filth victory. Jack Shepard's two-run homer was the only weak moment for Spahn. The Braves, who have won three straight for Haney since he replaced Charlie Grimm Saturday night after a miserable 5-12 slump gor all their runs orr Ron Kline, starting after two days' rest. Joe Adcock drove in two runs with a first-inning double. Mantle's two-on, eighth-inning blast broke a 4-all tie. He pickled a 2-1 pitch by Paul Foytack directly into the wind and off the grandstand roof (110 feet above the .ground) in right field. The poke went over the 370-foot sign. Tec! Williams, as a Boston rookie in 1939, is the only other man ever to put one out of Briggs Stadium. Mantle's homer put him 12 ord 80 pa'ce of 1927 and handed Don Larsen his fourth victory after e'/i innings of three-hit ball in relief of Bob Turley. Jim Wilson won his ninth of th» season and fifth since moving to the White ox from Baltimore last month by checking his former mates on^ seven hits. The Sox scored twice in the second off Bill Wight with a pair of infield outs after loading the bases. Tne clincher came off Mike Fornieles in the seventh. Kansas City junked a three- game losing string and escaped the cellar with two unearned runs in the first and two in the sixth to overhaul a 3-2 Senator lead.
