PAGE SIX lola Softball Team Captures District Title The steam-rollering. Boosters scrambled right over two more district softball rivals at Riverside Park Jast night and suddenly found themselves the tournament champions. "It's over," tournament chairman-Lindy Ingroum reported today, meaning that the lola team gets the title by a default, with tonight's^^^ tentatively arranged' game off. : Buffalo announced after the final game last night that it will not comie back for a remaining contest planned this evening. Its spokesmen said they had expect •d the tourney to be completed last night "and that they did not want to return again. — Their players came from points too widely scattered from lola, they told Ingroum. The loss in the second game last night, 6-2, was the first of the tournament for Buffalo. There had been one Booster loss also, 6-2 to the Co-Paes of Coffeyville, but two defeats were necessary to eliminate a team. ;9uffalo^ had hoped to end it by, :"w*lnnihg over the Bbost'ers last^ night, or playing"again until it was decided. Earlier, however, the committee had stated that three games would not be required of any team last night, and the Boosters would have been in that position. The same would have applied to the Page Milk team of Coffeyville, which lost the first game to the Boosters last night. 2-0 on Wendell Frazell's first-inning home run. The tournament program had not designated the time of the final game, only the finals of the Winner and loser brackets. Fans left the park not knowing that the game for tonight had -been forfeited. • " Frazell's home run .to left with —two out"rin the- first—last^night was .the only hit theJola team made off Bill Inihan of Page Milk. »r Joe Hajl; fdr the Boosters, gave only three hits, and two of those were a single and double by Inman in his two times at bat. Hall, of Chanute, fanned eight and walked none. Inman struck out four and walked two. One of the walks, to Glen Percy, catcher, preceded Frazell's four-bagger, lola failed to hit the ball past the in/ield the last six innings. In the second game, the Boosters also started with a first inning home run, but this time they did not quit so early. Arch Specht got a homer when the leftfielder deflected his fly ball over the snowfence. Errors, a walk. and.W. Frazell's sacrifice fly had given two-rurts before that. -— Elmer Frazell, Booster manager, pitched the final victory, a two-hitter with two walks. One of 4he hits was a home run by Bob Sebbert of Humboldt, playing first base for Buffalo. After pitcher-Jim McCoy, of Chanute, walked, Sebbert cleared the center fence with two out.'Chuck Sisson, the fielder, pijed over the fence trying to catch the ball. .

The Boosters are qualified now for-the-state tournament-at Great Bend Aug. 22, but Ingroum said today it is questionable whether they can go because of job' responsibilities.. The local; committee can recommend another team to replace them. They won seven games and lost one in capturing the district crown. Longdeii Wins 5 DEL MAU.

In the afternoon, the younger Buckbrush ^members, entered con« tests at th e fair, with^Linda Butcher winning first place in pole bending, the cloverleaf and a barrel race, and Sharon Woodward being first in a bpot race. Miss Butcher was third in the boot jace and Miss Woodward third in the barrel race: Edith Keenan was second in musical chairs, Peggy Buckner third in l^ad-back and in pole bending and second in the barrel race.

Frantic Frank built his reputation with the Chicago White Sox before taking over as general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, but he met his match in Gabe. Take Cincinnati's 7-6, lO-inping victory over the Cards last night. It hoisted the Redlegs within two jgames of Milwaukee's National League leaders and the winning ruji was knocked in by ex-Cardi- Inal-Alex Grammas after fine relief work by Hal Jeffcoat and Buster Freeman, who were picked lip by Gabe in little publicized Ideals. , The victory also edged the Red- legs to within five percentage points of Brooklyn's idle second- place Dodgers, who moved to within V'i games of the Braves, beaten 5-4 in U innings by the Chicago Cubs. Irf the ^A7nl»ricdfi Le'a'gu'^-. "yblitig Ralph "Terry, with relief help, won I his major league debut as the New York Yankees ended their losing streak at six games, cooliiig off Boston's Red Sox 4-3. The victory again gave the Yanks an eight- game bulge over second-place Cleveland, beaten by Detroit 9-0 in the only other game scheduled. Grammas — a shortstop Paul dealt to the Cards for $100,000 a few seasons back', then reclaimed from Lane this spring plus outfielder Joe Frazier in return for utilityman Chuck Harmon — delivered a two-out single to score Gus Bell with the clinching run in the Ilth off reliefer Larry Jackson. Bell, whom Paul picked up from Pittsburgh in 1952 for three lesser lights, had doubled'to'open the" frame. He also slugged his 20th homer in--the "first inning. The Card starter was Jackie Collum. the lefty who originally was St.Louis property and then was trade4 back to Lane this spring for Brooks (15-3) Lawrence. He left in a four-run third that produced a 6-4 Cincy lead. Jeffcoat. whom Paul got for excess catcher Hobie Landrith from the Cubs, Relieved Joe Nuxhall in the third and would have had it wrapped up except for two unearned St.Louis runs in the eighth. Freeman — whom Lane helped waive out of the AL while with the White Sox when Paul brought .hi.m from Boston -r- pitched just the 10th, and won his lOth.

It was the second operation in the past three weeks for the famed woman athlete, who is fighting a recurrence of cancer. Sports NEWS & VIEWS "I saw a lot of ducks in Canada this summer and I got excellent ,pittures "of geese and their" igos- lins off the St. Lawrence flyway in Quebec," says Ira Stockebrand 'of Independence in his outdoors column. . He was verifying, from his experience, the word from the "Ducks Unlimited" agency that prospects for hunting this fall are good. "The average size of the broods is exceeding the long term average of six," says Stockebrand. 0 0 The Independence naturalist has picked up and relayed these figures, on baits used to catch 1,840 lunker liass.at Bull Shoals and Norfolk Lake in Arkansas this year: . ' Jigs or Icadheads, 56 per cent V of the. catch; spinner lures, 21 per cent;, surface lures, 8 per cent; underwater plugs, 7 per cent; live bait, 4 per cent; undesignated, 4 per cent. o 0 There is inclination to feel a little sorrier for the Athletics' fans these days than for. the Athletics. They seem to be taking the setbacks pretty hard around .'Grumbling and (discouragement li^e on the increase. A few victories, which are almost bound t6 come sooner or later^'' will re•4 ' The announcement that Salina High Schol athletic star Gary Baer is going to attend OU could have mentioned, but didn't, that his family is moving to Oklahoma where his father, Virgil Baer, will be employed, at Oklahoma City. . . . Nick Ananias, the former popular Independence first baseman in the KOM League, announced his retirement from the game recently after being released by _Salt_Lake-City,_^.-. Some La- Harpe residents estimated attendance at the district girls Softball tournament there as about 4 ,000 persons for the six- day affair. No admission was charged. That is about double what the nine-day men's tournament drew here. vive the patrons again, however. There are frequent charges among them that the team is hot hustling as it might. That, too, is natural while losing, but it isn't absolutely necessary. Within the ranks of the Kansas City team and amid many close followers the common complaint is the lack of pitchers and pitching. That is justified, and the weakness is there. It's also true that pitcTflrig is 75 per cent of a ^ball team. Even some lack in that depart ment can be overcome by hustle. As long as somebody can throw the ball from the mound to the plate there should be hustle on (he part of the others. Seeing the A's recently, it was hard to imagine them being paid to play ball. "Gee, wonder what these guys do for a living'/" you were wanting to say. That was on a particularly bad day, though. They aren't that bad. And surely they are not six games below Washington's calibre. o 0 The Boosters are due rousing applause fur their district softball championship. They did have the advantage of going home to rest while most lother teams were traveling to and from lola, and they may not have stood out above the field in giant fashion, but they played hard, steady, skillful ball and richly deserve the honor. They were playing mostly regular strength, too. Their rivals in the local league can take pride in their accomplishment also. Chasing them around'Riverside Park the past two seasons has been a frustrating experience, but this turn of events makes the also-rans of the league look better, "ITiere probably is no more business-like and likeable a softball aggrcgatii(Mv;jn the state. Meanwhile the Jaycee committee, is worthy of a compliment on conducting the tournament in vig- orou$ manner. It was sparsely patronized locally but brought_quite a few outside people to town.
