:k ber for Casons ^ Short Rest Next for Legion Club BOBBY GEORGE After Winning No. 3 /1AJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS By ED HAYES Sports Editor Thirteen turned out to he the Dud Casons 1 plucky number. The Blytheville American Legion baseball club turned in its 13th straight victory Sunday afternoon, a 6-1 decision over Rector at Light Brigade Field. The Blytheville boys, with • home-run attack Saturday night, featuring a grand- slammer by Bruce Bateman, decked Paragould 22-8. The Casons have a lew day off now, with no practice until -Wednesday and a . 7:30 Thursday night game at Corning. Next home show is a twinight doublebill Friday at 5:30 against Helena. Bobby George won his third game Sunday, surviv- ing a rocky start. He didn't exactly get sharp support in the first inning when the visitors marked down their only run. Dennis Cate opened with < questionable two bagger, moved up on » grounder and scored on Bob McKeel'» pale single. George allowed only one more hit after that until the sixth when Radius Baker singled to right and Dale Parrish reached first on an infield hit. Parrish's hard knock was nailed at short on a dazzling play by Jimmy Wagner. He scooped the ball after diving for it but was unable to make the throw in time. Rector missed an opportunity to score in the third when a runner at third failed By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS I NATIONAL LEAGUE : W. L. Pet. G.B.

I can't say if it was the first time for the Blytheville teenager but.he couldn't have been very experienced atit. Playing for the Courier News Softball team in the YMCA slow-pitch league, he arrived at the diamond on the Randall Company lot Friday night full of the ole jinegar, ready for another gay adventure. The young man wouldn't say if he swallowed some of the juice or shreds of the tobacco itself but by the second inning he was staggering and wondering why they were playing with two softballs instead of one. In the top of the third inning he turned gray. In the bottom half he was green. Green means go but that's one thing he couldn t do. He couldn't get up, either. By the time the blurry fourth inning came along, he was stretched out like a stuffed eagle. * * * • Golf Dates MARGERY HALE, DOT GERMAIN AND MRS. DALE Dunlap of Blytheville, in the qualifying round of the Trans- Mississippi golf show in Fort Smith today, have important dates next week also. Margery and Mrs. Dunlap are entered to the women s state golf tournament at Cherokee Village . . . while Dot has her eye on the intercollegiate crown at Columbus, hoping to win what her mother did a few years ago. Tasker Moves TASKER RODMAN, FORMER LEACHVILLE HIGH basketball player, has moved his model racing emporium to Osceola. , He has » much better location than he had here ana should do much better-although he probably won't be around to see it for awhile. He enlisted in the Air Force and is due to leave later this month. Howard Powell, once a basketball manager at Leacn- ville has signed on to manage the store. 22 Last Year BLYTHEVILLE'S UNBEATEN AMERICAN LEGION team has pushed its streak to IS. Best streak of triumphs the Dud Casons had last year •was 22 but at the tailend of the season. The Blytheville team is made up of players from the area. Rector, which appeared here Sunday, restricts its personnel strictly from Rector High, explained Jesse Bucy the coach. The Rector group played only its second Legion gam* of the year yesterday ... and both were losses ... but this is the same group that won th« high school district championship. * * * Luscious Luke LUKE GRAHAM IS A GRUMPY GUY WHO WRESTLES for a living. . , , . He is lined up to work in the preliminary at Legion Arena Tuesday night. The 260-pounder doesn't need any outside prodding but if fans want to hit his unfunny bone all they have to do is show him him one of the advertising posters placed around town. Luke is listed as a lady wrestler. to tag up in time after a blast to left field. He might not have crossed, anyway, beause Ron Beard made a firm throw. George moved to third base in the seventh and Eddie Career, another right bander, completed the game. Carner put himself in lukewarm water in the ninth. After the first two swingers went down, Gale Parrish singled and pinch-hitter Gib Gilt was knicked with a pitch but the last batted sailed to Searcy Mears in right. The Blytheville boys never semeed to be in any serious trouble but on a blistering afternoon they were not quite as spirited as they have been. Beard was ahead of the nine-hit attack off McKeel with three singles. Mears, who finally came up with a hot bat Saturday night, continued his good work with a single and double. Stan Williams doubled in the seventh. Bateman, Wagner and Sam Singleton singled. * * * Bateman, Singleton and Ronnie Yarbrough homered for the Dud Casons Saturday night in Paragould's cozy enclosure. Yarbrough, who seems to have a thing about not hitting on Sunday, poked his on top of the school building, a homer in any park around. The blast followed Singleton's in the first inning when the Casons scored four runs. They had a picnic in the seventh, sending 17 batters to the plate and scoring 13 times. Mercifully, they didn't score any more after that. The marathon inning was capped by Bateman's four- bagger with the bases loaded. * * * Yarbrough, Bateman and Mears had four hits each. Beard bashed three and Singleton a pair. Dwight Williams used 17 players. This was a complete surprise to the skipper because he went into the game fretting about his pitching. Walt Hampton, back from Boys State, was the winning pitcher. Once he got past the first batter he did fine until fifth. , Franklin Williams, Pwight's nephew, was the first batter up in the game for Paragould and he 1 parked one of' Hampton's fat •lllllllllllllllllllllllllUDIIHIIilillllllllllllllllllllllinillllllllli on es over the fence. COURIER NEWS BATOEDAY, JUNE 11. 19M PAGE EIGHT Jerry McLaughlin, who shutout West Memphis Friday night, aided Hampton and Bateman aided McLaughlin. McLaughlin, appearing in the fourth after Paragould scored four runs, picked the runner off first to end the trouble. Charlie Baxter tagged three hits for Paraguold. Dwight Williams tried to softpedal the number of straight wins his undefeated club had posted Sunday afternoon. He's still experimenting, slill trying to give all the work he can to as many as he can. "But, ht said, "we're going to win •» many games as we can, too, I guarantee you that."
