The View from Her* ED HAYES When Is an Upset? EARLY THIS SUMMER SHE WAS UPSETTING PEOPLE all over the lot. Dot German stopped upsetting the girls on the amateur golf tour when she won the Broadmoor. So, soon as she was knocked off in the Women's Western Amateur this week, it was termed an upset. Such is fame, such is prestige. Prestige, in women's golf, like most athletic events, determines the "upsets." * * * Dot, 19, is scheduled to refrain from tournament play ; for two weeks. The next goal for the Blytneville girl is the Women's National Amateur championship, Aug. 8 near Pittsburgh. Ah, Pittsburgh in August. How delightful. * * * St. Louis in August PITTSBURGH COULDN'T BE ANY WORSE IN AUGUST than St. Louis is. I'm talking about heat. There was weeping all over the downtown lots in St. Louis at All-Star time. Complainers should have been dropping to their knees in thanksgiving that the baseball classic wasn't played there in August instead. In August sidewalks buckle .and blacktop streets turn to gum. It's not unusual to see a kid reach down and grab a chaw and put it in his mouth. When he gets home his mother asks him what he's got .In his mouth. '. "Bircher Boulevard," he replies. ' Jim Killett was among the many BIytheville and area folks who saw the All-Star game in. person. Said Jim: "I . will agree with what (Casey) Stengel said. Busch Stadium .,1s beautiful and it holds the heat well." * * * If your last name starts with any of these letters, H, I, ^J, L, N, P, Q, V, X or Z, you have a chance of setting a major league record. No major leaguer, whose last name starts with either of these letters has ever hit an All-Star home run. Nineteen of the 72 homers have been produced by play. ers whose last names begin with M. . .St. Louis Cardinals have delivered 14 of the 72. . .and the National League has out-homered the American 40-32. All this juicy information was culled from an official All-Star program and supplied by Killett. While the other 50,. 000 people were fanning themselves with their programs, Killett was reading his. Herb on TV BLYTHEVttLE WRESTLING PROMOTER HERB Welch has a date to act—er, wrestle on television this afternoon in Memphis. "I don't know who my opponent is," he said. "I just got a telegram and it said to be there." Herb has booked Luke Graham and Chin Lee Into Le-. gion Arena Tuesday night tor the fourth straight week. But instead of a fourth crack at the world tag team championship held by Herb and Al Costello, they find themselves op-, posite Billy Wicks and big Mario Milano. First match puts Dwayne Peal against Rowdy Red Roberts. * * * Semi? BATESVILLE SEMIPROS HAVE HIRED ALL THE pitchers in Memphis. Well, not really, but the club has grabbed most of the good ones as it zeroes in on the state championship and— . possibly—the national title. I heard two guys the other day making book that Warren Spahn would end up pitching in Wichita for one of the semipro outfits in the national. No Competition All Hooker It was Hooker Hood Night at Cottonwood Raceway last night. They didn't give him anything. He scooped up everything. The Memphis stock car driver won the Class A and Class C features, plus the fast heats in both divisions. Hooker, who has been getting most of his competition of late from Wayne Woodward, had it all to himself last night when Wayne showed up without a Class A car to drive. * * * He announced that he is no longer driving for the Greenfield, Tenn., owner for "personal reasons," but said he'd be back on the circuit next Friday night with his own car. Woodward did drive a Class C car last night but came in third behind Hooker and Larry Barnum of Portageville. Barnum appeared to have the race won but Hooker darted inside on the last turn to spear the checkered flag. Curtis Parnell won the Class C slow heat, and the Class A slow spins went to Jack Lamb of Memphis. Hood had no competition in the A feature. He seemed to be going half throttle most of the time in the small (eight-car) field. * * * There is racing Sunday night at BIytheville Speedway at 8 o'clock, time trials at 6:30.

Norm Cosh: Detroit Hero By RON RAPOPOBT Associated Press Sports Writer Though h« must now concern himself with a problem of greater moment than the .winning or losing of basbea 111 games Bob Swift is reveling in Norm Cash's heroics along with all the other Detroit Tigers. Cash's grand-slam home run Friday night sent the Tigers to a 10-5 victory over Cleveland and broke a six- game losing streak. And it gave Swift, back in a Detroit hospital, the first good news he'd had that day. Swift, who became acting,field stands, ending Bell's work manager when Charlie Dressen for 8ie day. Later Cash had two chances to enter the record books, but had to Settle for another two runs batted in. In the seventh and ninth innings Cash came up with the bases jammed, but the first time he was walked and the second time hit a sacrifice fly. In who pitched a two-hitter and struck out 15. Elsewhere in the NL, Houston defeated Pittsburg 5-2, Cincinnati whipped Atlanta 8-2 and St. Louis knocked off Chicago 9-4. * * * Swoboda's homer, off Claude Osteen, came in the eighth inning. The Mets also scored in the third on Ron Hunt's single. Bob Friend blanked the Dodgers on eight hits. Perry held the Phillies hitless 'or seven innings, but Clay Dalrymple led off the eighth with a line single to right field. Perry struck out Rich Allen four tunes and Bill White three. Willie Me- Covey drove in three San Francisco runs with a homer and a double. Houston's Larry Dierker gave up home runs to Bob Bailey and Willie Stargell, but the Astros already had built a 4-0 lead in the first inning. Bailey's error, doubles by Rusty Staub, Lee Maye and Bob Aspromonte and Ron Brand's single accounted for the unearned runs. Cincinnati exploded for six runs in the sixth inning, three on Leo Cardenas' double and two on Pete Rose's homer. That wiped out Atlanta's 2-1 lead. . Frank Boiling scored both of the JBraves' runs, the first on a first- inning homer. Joe Hoerners 'three-run horn- was felled by a heart attack earlier In the season, was told Friday he had a malignant lung tumor. But when the team physician, Dr. Russell Wright, came to visit Swift in the hospital he found the former Tiger catcher as concerned with the team as himself. * * * "He said he'd like to see them doing better," Wright said. As :ar as Cash was concerned, it was no sooner said than done. The big first baseman stepped up in the sixth with Tigers on every base and drove a pitch by ;ary Bell into the upper right- other American League games, Baltimore beat Chicago 3-1, Kansas City knocked off Washington 7-2, Boston edged Minnesota in 11 innings 6-5 and California took New York 6-4. * * * Coach Frank Skaff will run the Tigers until either Dressen or Swift is able to return. Swift's condition is described as one that should be responsive to treatment. Jim Palmer threw a six-hitter as the Orioles maintained their liya-game bulge over the rest ot the league. It was his lltJi victory of the season. Brooks Robinson hit his 19th homer. Jim Gosger and Danny Cater homered for Kansas City as Washington lost its fifth game in a row. The Athletics had gone eight games without a homer. George Thomas singled in a run with two out in the llth to give Boston its victory.
