' Robinson Denies He Kicked In Umps Door ') By JOE RKICHLER ' BOSTON, Sept. 23. (AP)^Did Jackie Robinson, fiery - Brooklyn scdoiid baseman, pound and kick the locked door of the umpires' dressing room in a violent rage following Ihe Dodgers' hotly disputed 4-3 loss to the Boston Braves yesterday? "No," shouted Robinson. "Anybody who says I did it is a damned liar." Did any of the Dodgers assault the barred door, crushing two of its: panels, before the arrival of five special policemen to help the regular guard? "Yes," admitted Robinson. "I know who did it but I'm not saying who." I know who did it. too," echoed Brooklyn ace Preacher R^oe, victim of the heart-breaking loss that pared the Dodgers' first place lead over the New York Giants to a half game. "But it wasn't Jackie," added the Preacher. "I'll take an oath on that." Earlier, one of the special policemen had reported that it was Robinson who had done the kicking and pounding.

"I talked with both Prank Dascoli and Bill Stewart," said Frick, "and they said nothing about Jackie Robbison or any other player klck"- ing in the umpire's door. "I expect, however," he added, "that part of the report if true, will be in my hands soon."

Mangrum Leads St. Louis Open Middlecoff Second With a 65; Finals Are Set for Sunday ST. LOUIS, Sept. 28. (AP)—If today's second round is anything like the opener, old man par will have an inferiority complex by the time the St. Louis Open golf tournament beds down for the night. Lloyd Mangrum and defending champion Cary Middlecoff finisher! one-two yesterday at the close of the first round with Mangrum carding a jeven-below-par 64. Middlecoff, .the Memphis, Tenn.. dentist, swung across the Meadow Brook country club course with a 65. Mangnim, the Niles, 111., professional who already leads the 1951 money - winners, established his claim on the SI5.000 first prize check by posting a four-under-par 31 en the way out. and finishing the back nine in 33. three under par?" The 64 gave Mangrum a three- way-jor the course record. Walter Hagen accomplished the same score some 20 years ago. and Prank Morgan followed at a later date. The rest' of the entries gave par a battering too. Seventeen came off the last green with scores of 70 or below and nine others tied the par 71. Two amateurs were in the low- score group—John Jacobs of Cedur Rapids, Iowa, with 33-37—10, and Jimmy Jackson of St. Louis, with 35-38—71. Jackson Is the reigning Missouri amateur champion. Jim Perrier. San Francisco, fell In behind Middlecoff with a 67, and Jack Burke of Houston took an early fourth position with"68. The tourney runs through Sunday. The game was the finale of an odd gridiron doubleheader played on Osceola's .Hale Field. In the firs* game Osceola's junior high team whipped the shawnee Junlori 6-0. Playing a. much better game than their "fumble, stumble and fall" brand in their first two outings, th« Bees outplayed the Semlnole reserves all the way. They scored In the first quarter and then hung on through the final three. The game was marred by an unusual number of penalties but all but three of the fines were mere five-yarders for offside or illegal motion infractions. Defensive halfback Joe Whlsen- hunt got the Chicks' only score when, he Intercepted an Osceola pass at the Seminoles' 45 and return 1t for a touchdown. Quarterback Wayne Burnham sneaked through a big hole at guard for the extra point. Outside of Whisenhunt's fine pass interception run back, the game was Played between the two 20 yard lines. Both teams missed several scoring opportunities by either fumbling them away or giving them away on quarterbacking mistakes. The game was a crowd thriller from the beginning with rugged line play'and some nice backfield action. ' The Seminoles showed the crow pair of hard running backs In neth. Cole, a big youngster just up iom the junior high ranks and Russell Thomason who played a lot ol halfback. The Chick Bees countered with jood backfield play, too, with Shan- ion Langlcy, Joe Bynum, Billy Phillips, Norbett Blankenshtp and runs and Terry Vail turned in some good-ball handling. The Chicks' defensive play was ireatly Improved too. The linemen charged hard and kept the Seminoles' air attack pretty well grounded. Star-line lineups. BlylhevlUe Pos.
