(AP>—Major league club owners began arriving today, 24 hours before they official!)' convene to try to agree on a baseball com miss inner. Undoubtedly, there will be many* (secret- hotel-room meet ing among the 16 magnates with Ihe hope of approaching a clear-cu^ decision beforehand. Otherwise, tomorrow's parley could well be a drawn-out affair of wheedling the 12 majority votes needed to name a. successor for the.) deposed A. B. (Happy) Chandler, a $65,000 per year man. Generally regarded as the main candidates after two New York sessions cf screening prospects Are Warren Giles and Ford Frick. But if a stalemate should develop, a clnrk- horse could slip In or the owners could vote for adjournment to continue R quest of new timber. Giles Is me courtly-mannered' States and Great Britain, the president ol the Cincinnati Reds flhrt member of the major's foxir- man executive committee — a highly respected member of baseball's hierarchy.

ANDREWS, Scotland. Sept. 19. (AP)—The stymie Is dead in match piny golf, effective Jnn 1 1952. Elimination of the stymie Is the most significant of a new international code of the game which has now been adopted by the United big golf-playing nations. two The Royal and Ancient Oolf Club yesterday approved the uniform rules, previously accepted by the United States Golf Association. Other principal rules In the new code: 1. Stroke and distance will be He was considered for the post when Chandler was elected in 1945.

In the past Britain's penalty has been distance only on o\ll of bounds. 2. The smaller British ball—1.62 Inches In diameter compared with America's 1.68—will be permitted flag after winning those vital games from Cleveland Sunday and Monday. So what happened? The Yankees blew a 7-1 decision to the fourth place Chicago White Sox last night. Yliai cut their lead over the Indians Horn a lull game to a microscopic three percentage points. Now take Boston's third place Red Sox. Winner of six of their seven starts, the Red Sox seemed reatly to deliver the knockout punch to the groggy Indians. Instead, the tribe sharpened their tomahawks and scalped the Boslon- lans, 0-4. The defeat left the Red Sox still two and a half games off the pace. Even Brooklyn joined the act. Generally regarded as sure-fire world series participants, the Dodgers noiv find themselves hard put to keep the persistent New York Giants off their necks. Dodgers Lead Dwindles The Dodgers saw their once 13',i tame mnriiln shrink to three last night when they bowed to the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-1, as the Giants took a 6-5 squeaker from Cincinnati. While (here is some reason for Dodger alarm. It would still take a minor miracle for the Giants to overhaul them. Brooklyn owns a commanding five-game bulge In the important losing side. The Giants have only eight games left to play niiainst the Dodgers' 12. That's where the Yankees have their edge, too—In the losing side. Cleveland has won two more than New York but the Indians also have lost two more. They have only seven games left to 11 for New York and 12 for Boston. However. New York and Boston clash eight more times. Pitcher Billy Pierce and outfielder Eddie Stewart collaljorated to beat the Yankees. The little lefthander throttled the Yankees with eight hits for his 14th triumph. Stewart, an ex-Yankee, hit a home run to lie the score at 1-1. then shattered the deadlock with a bases-loaded single in the eighth which put the Box in front. 3-1. Chicago added four more runs and routed Vic Raschl before the inning ended. The Yankee righthander, who was gunning for his 20<ri victory, went down to his loth defeat Instead. Garcia Slops Bosox Mike Oarcla, the strong-armed Cleveland righthander, was successful in his attempt for his 20th triumph. The Mexican hurler held Hie Red Sox to nine hits and helped himself to a mighty double in the Indians four-run sixth Inning that sent.. Bill Wight down to his .sixth defeat.-: Young Tom Poholsfcy limited the Dodgers to eight hits in posting his sixth win for the Cards. A five-run fifth. Ignited by rookie Vcrn Benson's home run off loser Ralph Branca, clinched the victory. George Spencer helped Dave ICoslo post his ninth New York victory with a sterling ninth in nlng relief Job. The young right- hander retired pinch hitter Hank Edwards lor the final out after the Beds had scored three times and U.S. Olympic Head Says School Officials Ignoring Athletics CHICAGO. Sept. !D. </f>y--AVery Brundage, uncompromising spokesman for amateurism in athletics called today on American colleges to reform their football program In order to save (he sport. "Responsibility lor the evils of football can be laid squarely on the doorsteps of the top level college administrative authorities, and not on the athletic departments, 1 said Brundage, "It Is their responsibility to correct the situation and prevent it from becoming a national scandal." The reform Brundage prcposes is simple: "College sports departments should be put on a par with the academic departments." he' said "We got into our present difficulty because our colleges followed the medieval notion that only the mint counts. They scorned the bcdy They also scorned the athletic departments. "So college presidents and faculties paid no heed to the mad merry-go-round that football created— rich inducements to players, heav Eer demands on coaches, bigger am more expensive publicity depart ments. biseer and better stadiums The colleges did pay heed, how ever, to the money that footbal produced. "What we have now is the natural result of putting the emphasi. on dollars and publicity. In fact .he athletic departments have done highly successful Job of getting both. "Abuses overlooked or toleratec In football are spreading to othei clean nnd healthy sports and game, and poisoning our entire amateu program. "The way to stop this is to gi back to the ancient Greek idea in international matches.

Burdette-BeeGame To Be Played Here Tomorrow Night Site for the Chick B team's game with Burdette High School, originally scheduled to be played at Burdette tomor- •ow afternoon, has been moved to Blytheville, Bob Newman, 3 team coach said yesterday. + The game will be a night aftxBI Coach Newman said and is scheo? uled to start at 8 o'clock. Change In the site for the game was made at the request of Burdette officials who said that their new football field is not ready to be played on. At the same time Newman announced the change in the site for the B game. Head Coach Russell Mosley announced that the Chicks' game with Poplar Bluff here Fr[day night will start 15 minutes later than scheduled. The game was originally slated for 8 p.m. but now has been set back to 8:15. —Courier News Photo MIGHTY MITE—He's the smallest man in the Chicks' backfield but Donald Gentry is one of the fastest and most consistent players on the sqund. He operates his 150 pounds at fullback and proved himself a very capable broken field runner last week when he hauled down a Marked Tiee pass at the goal line and scampered 100 yards to a touchdown. Donald is a junior and a letterman. 'Gotta Win Em All,' Leo Says of Giants' Chances CINCINNATI, Sept .19. (AP)—"We've got to win them all." That was the very quiet observation by the usually loquacious Leo Durocher, manager of the New York Giants, alter his ball club had climbed to within three games of first place in the National League. The Giants had just staggered in for ;\ 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds while the St. Lcuis Cardinals were beating the Brooklyn Dodgers. Is Leo superstitious? I He slued away trom the question! and said only: "I never predict anything. We just play to win today's game." It wa^ chen that he looked into space and said softly, "we've got to win them all." Leo probably was thinking about the cold statistics of the standings which show his Giants have lost five more games than :Sie Dodgers. game losing streak at the start o the season. The 16-game winning streak helped boost the Giants into their present second place position, which puts equal emphasis on de- j Those games are gone forever so it vcloplng the body along with the! explains why Leo feels the Giants mind—which makes sport fun in-; can't afford to lose any more, stead of a commercial enterprise."!
