Veeck of the St. Louis Browns had received a reprimand from .William Harridge, president of the American League, for permitting a midget to go to bat in a league game. "They let some people do anything", Bill said, "They're even letting the Kansas City club of the Yankee organization have horse races in the ball park." J.P. Frisco set a record of 2:07 1-4 as a trotter. As a show horse he has won more than 400 blue ribbons.

But with one out in the eighth, Billy Glynn, batting for catcher Jim Hegan, crackec a line single to center. The tense crowd of 53,747, largest of the year at Yankee Stadium, heavec a sigh of relief when Raschi made another pinch hitter. Hank Majeski, his seventh strikeout victim. But up came Dale Mitchell, who has been the toughest batter in the league for Yankee pitchers to get out this season. The southpaw swinging left fielder, who already had collected 32 hits^ in 75 tries at bat against the Yanks, lashec a drive up against the bleacher wall in right center field. Glynn, off with the crack of the bat, dashed madly around the bases as right fielder Hank Bauer made a fine recovery of the ball anc heaved it straight and true to Billy Martin who had raced out on the grass to take the relay Glynn was rounding third as the second baseman took the throw and fired the ball home to catcher Yogi Berra.

They have pennant dust in their eyes as Springfield Girl Is New Tri-State Golf Champion PITTSBURG W — Shirley Chestnut, 17, Springfield, Mo., is the new champion of the Tri - State Women's Golf Tournament. Her 36-hole score of 85-83—168, completed _ Friday, was eight strokes over par and four strokes better than the 87-85—172 posted by-last year's titlist, Mrs. H. A. Lowe, Springfield.

"We've got to beat them all now —everybody in sight—if we're going to go all the way." They marked up their seventh straight victory of their home stand Friday night. The second place New York Giants were the victims, 3 to 1. Stu Miller, heady 24-year-old rookie up from American Association, pitched the Giants' batting average down the drain Friday night. He let Leo Durocher's dandies down with three hits while Leo was sitting it out somewhere in the stands, still under suspension for some misconduct. The victory left the Cards only three percentage points out of second place and 7% games behind the front-running Brooklyn Dodg- rs. "If we can win 15 in a row, we can go all the way," Stanky announced, meaning the pennant, of course. And 15 in a row doesn't seem impossible for a man who last season helped spark the New York Giants to 16 straight for the close- in on the Brooklyn Dodgers. Fred Saigh, owner of the Cardinals, is so impressed with his freshman manager that he tore up the old two-year contract Friday and signed a new one assuring Eddie managerial work through 1954. Whether Saigh upped the reported $40,000 a year salary was some- ihing the owner preferred not to talk about but he did say: "Eddie is entirely satisfied with the contract." Since the last day of June, Stan- icy's club has won 34 and lost only 14. His club needs only a 19-15 record the rest of the season to win 90 games. Stanky recalls that was enough for Boston to win the 1948 pennant but, of course, there are No-Hitter For Scanlon At Bonner Jack Scanlon came out on top the hard way Friday night at Bonner Springs when he. pitched no- hit, no-run ball in a 7-inning game :o lead the Leavenworth Knights of Columbus to a 1-0 victory over the Leavenworth Giants.
