How Far Can I iUa WWjfatfWHWa Ml 1 Richfield Mlllll JJM ,1 MUlii Ml I Blues Set Mark: Loop Pitching Millers Get Split MINNEAPOLIS Monday, August 9, 1943 STAR JOI RNAL Page 15 Wood Suggests All Star Golf Show; Cooper Loses DETROIT As captain of the American Ryder cuppers, who now hold a 3 to 1 series edge over domestic challengers, national ki'y -cv --v York Can Break One Homer Record; No Brown Assists In Regionals With 4-0 Win By JOE HEXDRICKSON How far can Richfield post of Minneapolis advance in the national American Legion junior baseball playoffs? That's a question that intrigues followers of the well balanced Mill City nine that rolled through the state tournament by scoring 37 runs to their opponents' one as three pitchers allowed only eight hits in three games. When Bob Danielson fanned 16 South St. Paul batsmen before 2,998 fans yesterday (5,274 saw the whole tournament) to give Richfield a 4-0 victory, the Minneapolis team moved into regional tournament which will be played Friday and Saturday at Lexington park against champions from North and South Dakota and Iowa. And don't be surprised if Richfield rolls through for a spot in the sectional playoffs.

Nobody knows the strength of Sioux Falls, the South Dakota champion; Fargo, North Dakota winner yesterday by a 9-2 count over Jamestown; or Bancroft, Iowa winner, 7-5, over Burlington. But it is difficult to imagine that these teams can have much more all around strength than Minneapolis showed in rolling through 19 consecutive victories without defeat this Coach Fred Warburton's pitching is far above the American Legion average. Danielson'g speed Is exceptional while Barney Briggs, third sacker, and Red Mellom, first baseman, take their turns on the mound with nearly equal effectiveness. Toss in plenty of power at the plate and a great shortstop in Roger Brown and second baseman in Jerry Smith and you have a ball team that may keep clicking. Certainly this is one of the best clubs the state has ever sent int, regional competition.

Don Anderson of South St. Paul pitched well yesterday, but errors at the wrong time plus Richlield hits proved too much for him. The winner of this week's re gional tournament will play at Miles City, Aug. 21, 22, 23, in one of the nation's four sectional tournaments, others being at Charlotte, N. Hastings, and Denver, Colo.

The four winners will meet in the "little, world series" at the city of one of the survivors, meaning it is possible for Minneapolis to get the classic if Richfield can keep going. Chick Zwelner, state adjutant, who will direct the regional, meet, said games would be played at 3 and 8:30 p.m. Friday with the finals, Saturday afternoon. The draw will be made Thursday when the teams arrive at the Xowry hotel headquarters.

Paul Park 2. Pyle Hurls Third Win By 1IALSEY HALL Thanks to Ewald Pyle, the deliberate smoothie from the Washington Senators, Minneapolis gained an even break in Louisville yesterday as the league sat down for comparative open date today to marvel at Kansas City pitching. Louisville won the first one, 3-2, but Minneapolis took the second, 5-3, as Tyle granted only three hits. So we come to some real group hurling. The Kansas City Blue, putting with Toledo yesterday, have now seen their atarting liurler go the route In IS of the past 18 games.

This lowers the figures set. last year by Indianapolis, although the Indians still hold the greatest sustained stretch run 14 contests without a change of twirlers. The league stood still over the Sahbath as everyone split even and possibly a highlight was the success of Jim Trexler of Indianapolis in finally gaining his four teenth triumph. Old Jim has been working a long time for that one and he. really took charge, with a 4 0 shutout of St.

Taul, after which the Saints came hark to win, D-5. The old adage "Don't throw left hander ngnlust Milwaukee" was pretty well exploded. It "Imply should he "Don't throw an ordinary ttouthpaw against 'em." Trexler hns been good against Ihe right-handed Brews, so has VIc Johnson of Louisville and yesterday Columbus put TWO In there readier Ko it ml George Docklus, Kesult! Hoe heat loe Berry, and Doclilus lost, 1 II. So Ihe lineup that is riddled willi power such as generated by Bill Norman, 'Ted Norhert, Grey Clarke, Heinz Becker, llerschcl Martin and others, got two runs for a whole afternoon nnd can consider Itself fortunate to split even. The Kaysee continuers of the si real; yesterday were Clem Hans-man and Al Lyons, the former losing, fi-3 and tho erstwhile outfielder winning, 3-1.

The Miller could have won both yesterday without stretching their rnnsclences. (hvnie Seheetz nnd Boogie Sclinpp were looked at 11, with the Kels finally taking a 21 lead In the first one as llama missed Dill's fly for three bases hiuI KolaiHlNon's nulscored him. Tim Colonels tied In the eolith, however, oil singles by Harath and 1'opowNki and won in the ninth when Hogsett relieved Selinctx and, after fanning Doyle with the saelts stiff, granted a single to ISenjiiniiti A double and two walks off Ewald gave Louisville two in the first Inning, of the second and Ba- ral.h'a homer completed the scor ing. The Kels picked one In the second, then won the battle with four in the sixth. Corriggio erred on Clifton's grounder, Pofnhl doubled, Vosmik singled, Itolandson singled and Dill batted for Blazn as Bowman relieved Johnson to triple off the right field wail.

It's an off day today and the cia uiuvu lu iuiniu HIJIlurTUW, Barons to Play Foe Here Again Reese Goose Talum hit. four for four in the first game and poled a long homer in the second besides wowing the ffins with every move he made as the Birmingham Barons and Cincinnati Clowns divided a twin hill at Nicollet park yesterday, each game 10-7. The teams met again Thursday night. Gomez Stars in Semi-Pro Debut NKW YORK Vernon 'Lefty) Gomez, outstanding American league southpaw pitcher for almost a decade, made his debut with the Brooklyn Bushwicks, a semipro nine, Sunday and helped hurl Ihe club to a 9 to 2 verdict over the New York Black Yankees. Gomez pitched four innings and gave up one hit and got a triple himself.

St. Paul Girl Tied for Western Lead EVANSTON, ILL. Ruth Seegar of St. Paul is one of four tied at 8fi for an early lead in the forty-third annual Women's Western amateur golf tournament which opened here this morning. The low 32 will qualify for match play.

Defending champion Betty Jameson is not entered. Haegg's Open Champion Craig Wood thinks golf should have an annual all-star show even after international matches with the British are sumed. "There's no reason why we can't have two captains and two all-star squads for a big match each declared Wood after he had led his cup squad yesterday to an 8H to 3'4 triumph over Walter Hagen's challengers. "Then every seconcf year we could send the best against the British In Ryder play." That Detroit likes the all-star series Idea was further shown yesterday by the 10,000 gallery at the Plum Hollow course that poured $35,000 Into Red Cross coffers. Wood personally accounted for one victory by heating off a late) chnllenge by Const Guardsman Jimmy Thomson, 2 and 1.

Other cup victories were contributed by Byron Nelson, Harold (Jug) Mo Spnden, Sgt. Vic Ghezzl, Lloyd Mnmgrum nnd Al Watrous. Trivale Mclvin (Chick) Ilarbert was six under par for the 33 holes it took him to heat the home pro, dapper Jimmy Demaret, 4 and 3, and Lt. Lawson Little was four under while handing Gene Sarazen his fourth defeat, 6 and 4. McSparlon heat his Chicago Tarn O'Shantrr playoff rival, O'Nell (Buck) White and Watrous whipped wee Bobby Crulckshank, both 9 and 8.

Nelson wns six under par while) beating Willie Goggln, 4 and 3. In the closest match Ghezzl handed Llghthorso Harry Cooper of Minneapolis his first setback of the) series, 1 up, and Mangrum squeezed out a 2 and i edge over Sam Byrd. Roby Annexes Arrowhead Title DULUTH, MINN. (JV) In a hnttln of missed putts on the) eighteenth green, Virgil Roby of Minneapolis outlasted Bob Clark of Keller In St. Taul to win the Arrowhead amateur title yesterday, 1 up.

Coming Into the eighteenth 1 up, Roby missed a four-foot putt for a cinch half. Clark retaliated with a missed 14-Inch putt, falling to send the matches Into extra holes. Both then putted the final hole. It was the second straight year that Clark finished In the runner-up spot. Roby reached the finals with a 4 and 3 win over Howard Pouselle of Keller and Clark edged out Ray Bellsle of Superior, 1 up.

(UB-Art Wall Honesdale, golfer now a private in the army air forces at Miami Beach, Sunday turned in a seven-under-par 65 pver the Normandy Isle course to hold his commanding lead in the annual Pan American 72-hole tournament. Captain David C.

Hanrahan, commanding officer of the school, said he had received word today that the Seahawk schedule has been approved by the navy department without change. Captain Hanrahan explained that the Pre-Flight school was regarded in the same status as that of the University of Iowa, on whose campus the naval station is located. The University of Iowa, although located in the fifth intercollegiate football district, has long been construed for competitive purposes, to be In the fourth district, allowing play with Big Ten opponents. NEW YORK UP) Rudy York, whose home run bat has revived unexpectedly, may set a major league record by hitting 19 or more roundtrippers this month. The husky Detroit first baseman socked three homers yesterday in leading the Tigers to double win over the Chicago White Sox.

The circuit clouts gave him the major league leadership with 18, but, more important, they gave him a total of five for the first week of August. It was six years ago, in August, 1937, that York walloped 18 homers for a major league mark that still stands. If he continues to connect for five homers in each of the remaining three weeks of August he is certain to break his own record. York's booming bat, which whacked 21 homers last year and 27 in 1941, backed up superlative pitching from Virgil Trucks and Tommy Bridges as Detroit tied the White Sox for third place. Altogether York drove in five runs for the day and boosted his season RBI to 64, despite a humble .266 batting average.

The first place New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals each swept a doublehead-ed to further Increase their leads In the American and National leagues. The fading Brooklyn Dodgers took it on the chin for the tenth straight time when Elmer Nie-man doubled Tommy Holmes home in the ninth inning to give the Boston Braves a 5 to 4 victory. Cleveland pulled to within half a game of Detroit and the White Sox by beating the St. Louis Browns twice, 6 to 5 in 14 innings and 5 to 2 behind Jim Bagby's five-hit pitching for his twelfth win of the year.

The Phillies swept a four-game series from the New York Giants by winning both ends of a double-header, 5 to 1 and 8 to 2, thus regaining sixth place. Nelson Captures Alex Golf Title ALEXANDRIA, MINN. VP) Chet Nelson of Minneapolis today has the twenty-second annual Re-sorters golf tournament trophy tucked away, thanks to a 30-foot putt on the twentieth hole. Nelson, playing Bill Zieske, also of Minneapolis, sank the long putt yesterday for the title. Edith Dochterman of St.

Paul successfully defended her women's title, defeating Kate Chap-pure of Faribault, one up. Betty Pettys, Faribault, won the first flight, and Jean Wussau, Alexandria, the second. H. O. Chrommie, Thief River Falls, took the men's senior flight, defeating A.

The bout is expected to draw a crowd of 20,000 and a gross gate of approximately $60,000. The battle is the first major test in Nova's comeback.

After Savold scored a technical knockout over him in eight rounds at Washington last winter, Nova temporarily abandoned fighting. He returned to the ring a short time ago and has had three bouts on the Pacific coast. He won two by knockouts and went 10 rounds in the other to decision the veteran "Chuck" Crowell. Nova has abandoned his comic ring accessories such as Yogi-Ism and the "cosmic punch" that helped make him a "set up" for world champion Joe Louis. He appears deadly serious about an attempt to climb back into the big money circle of the mitt business.

The betting has made Savold the 8-to-5 wagering choice. Host Mermen Win Rochester Meet ROCHESTER A well-balanced Rochester team won the annual American Legion junior swimming meet here yesterday, although out-scored in the matter of first places by both the Forest Gustafson and Nokomis clubs of Minneapolis.

Rules Improve Hulse Wilkinson Faurot's Aid on Seahawk Grid Staff That's to keep him in shape for Haegg's farewell appearance Wednesday evening at Randall's Island.

Having chased both Haegg and MacMitchell across numerous finishing lines, Hulse rates the Swede as the better of the two. Only Mao-Mitchell's final kick is superior to anything Haegg has shown, he says. The young chemist probably Is the tallest man to have made the select circle of milers, towering 6 feet, 2Vi inches high. He lopes through his stints with a stride that measures eight feet, in contrast to the eight-foot, six-inch step of Haegg. The latter is five-eleven.

Hulse came to New York university as a high jumper but swung to the middle distances under the guidance of coach Emil Von Elling. He still was good enough to clear six feet in a dual meet his final semester In college although concentrating on running. NEW YORK UP) Gunder Haegg's sugges-tion that United Stales milers would show a distinct improvement if they adopted his informal, rustic style of training already has brought results.
