THE DAILY MBKSENr.Ell..CAMANDAIGUA.Jt. 1939, Beacon Burns as Judges Give Conn Light-Heavy Title From Their Melio NEW YORK f/l') -- There was, rounds. That is, he did in the op- ncither joy nor band music in Beacon, N. Y., today, for Melio liettina blew his light heavyweight I'tle to Billy Conn of Pittsburgh last night In Madison Square Garden. The Beaconites, who hadn't boasted a champion since George Washington was in their midst during the Revolution, came down in a .special train with two bands to support their squot, dark idol -- but the judges voted unanimously for Conn at the close of a hard 15 rounds. The Pittsburgher, scoring h i ? fourth decision in as many starts in New York, whittled his way to victory with a left jab after taking a sound beating for the first five PGA ACES MEET IN SEMI-FINAL " Putters Become War Clubs As Quartet 01 Stars Chase Crown NEW YORK (O) -- The much- maligned putter becomes professional golfdom's magic wand today as four of America's super-golfers meet in the semi-finals of the P. G. A. tournament. On the stubby, par-pummelled Pomonok Club course that puts a terrific premium on second shots and putting, Byron Nelson, the United States open champion, meets E. J. (Dutch) Harrison of Oak Park, 111., while in the other bracket, curly-haired Dick lvie'-z of LaKe Forest, 111., has a date with Henry Picard, glum Hershey, Pa., pro. | The "guy who can putt is the I guy who can win," is the word of no less an authority than Nelson, who put together one of the most magnificent rounds in P. G. A. history to dump Emerick Kocsis by 10 and 9 yesterday. "You can always say that the best man with a putter will win a golf tournament." Nelson said, "but it's especially true on this course. This layout gives no edge to the long hitter -- it's the man who's not on the greens who figures here." That brings up the question, who is the hottest of the quartet that has gone through 144 holes of golf at its fiercest competitive race? On the basis of the play so far, skinny Dutch actually looks like the man to beat. He has drummed out a steady tattoo of sensational putts, anywhere from tricky two- footers to breath-taking 25-fout- ers. But Nelson, who had not a single bogey in 27 holes agains; Kocsis. is not exactly a poor putter. inion of the three judges, who col- leetively voted Bcttina only 18 rounds against 27 lor the slim boy from the West. The Associated Press scored the thing dead even -- seven rounds for each fighter and one round even. By that tabulation, Melio would have retained the crown that he and his fellow Beaconites have ticasured since the New York State Athletic Commi:;. i: ion b.stored i. upon him .six months ago. Melio. who had been badly underrated, came out of the scrap crying bitteily. His manager. Jimmy Grippo. was raving about having, been denied "impartial officials." Earlier in the day he had asked that only one of the officials be of Irish descent, and he evidently thought they had rung in an extra Irishman on him. But whoever was right about the scoring (and, after all, the three men whose opinions counted were unanimous,) it was a good fight -good enough for a return in the opinion of the 15,295 who paid to see it. Bctlina Used Left Considerably Bcttina, crammed to the pars \v:u: "post-hypnosis" applied by his versatile manager, Grippo, started out to give his puzzled opponent a real pasting. For four of the first five chapters, Conn looked like he never had heard of a southpaw before, and Bettina whanged him almost at will with a left that hurt. But when Conn began to catch on, and started dancing and circling to his left and flicking Melio with a long left, it was Melio's turn to be puzzled. For the next four rounds he could only shake his head and look aggrieved, like a cow being poked with a broomstick. But suddenly he came to life again, and the last six stanzas were a dog fight. Melio closed in and slugged again, rocking Conn several times and opening a cut under the handsome kid's right eye. Now and then Billy slugged right back, and once a right nearly dropped Bettina. It was hard, savage fighting. Conn, laughing loudly in the happy celebration in his dressing room, raised his left mitt and said a mouthful: "Good old left. The best thing since they invented hash."

The Cincinnati Reds, opening t'ueir eastern assault with a 7-0 shutout of the second place New York Giants yesterday, expanded their lead to 6 1-2 games while the collapsing New York Yur.kees saw theirs dwindle to 5 1?2 over Boston in the American League. There was a time late in Juno when the world champions had ?· ir.argin of more games between them and second place than they had Irst, but this is a circumstance which never will be repeated th/s season. They fell apart at Detroit yesterday for their sixth straight trimming. 10-6. The Boston Red Sox took advan- of this opportunity by downing the Cleveland Indians, 6-5 in 10 innings. The whole program in the American League yesterday presented some of the sloppiest baseball of the season. There were 18 bases on bails and 21 hits in the Yankees' melee. With the Yankees leading 4-1 going into ihc last half of the eightn Atley Dc-nald, the undefeated rookie acc- of the champions, walked three men and was yanked. Then, with two cut. three relict hurlers let in nine runs and let -out the ball game. Boston belted Bobby Feller out of the box with a five-run flurry in the fourth 'nning of iheir night gt'.rne. then gave all five run? bacs tn the Indians in the ninth. The Indians refused to accept the proposition. however, and in the tenth Mel Harder walked three men ana then gave a single to Lou Finney. The game at Cleveland drew 35,OCC Liitl the one at Detroit 25.000.

BALTIMORE, 1340 Rochester Uses 3 Pitchers For 11 Hits and Birds Employ 5 Hurlers (By The Associated Press) The Buffalo Bisons have won the International League pennant only once since the hey-dey of "Derby Bill" Clymer, but if the other clubs don't get them out of the Bison stadium soon they may duplicate the feats of the 1936 team that scored that rather momentous triumph. The thundering Herd of 1936, you remember, was described as a team that "had everything." This year's edition of the Bisons have displayed various weak spots since the season started, but in their current winning streak the weak spots have been almost hidden. It was at home nearly a month ago that the Bisons began their climb from seventh place to third. They kept right on winning during visits to various other northern cities, but the real drive began July 5 in their home park. Since then Buffalo has won 11 straight and now is only a game and a half behind Rochester, which again last night took the upper hand in its in-and-out duel with Jersey Oity. 116 Hits in 11 Games There's no need to say the Herd has been clouting the ball. Nine hits, including Jim Oglesby's homer, as the Bisons beat Syracuse 5-3 last night, brought the 11-game total to 116 blows and 12 four-bag- gers. Their infleld has turned in a lot of sparkling plays afield, and with this doubly-strong backing, the uncertain mound staff has managed to look good. Six of the eleven starters have lasted the route. Earl Cook, the former Syracuse flinger, did a good job against his old mates last night but lost his chance for a shutout when John Kroner hit for the circuit with two aboard. Rochester's once-effective mound staff seems to have gone to pieces, but in spit* of that serious falling th( Red Birds outlasted Baltimore- to win 13-10 while Jersey City (dropped an 8-3 decision to the no- longer-last Toronto Leafs. Montreal nosed out Newark, 3-2. in last night's other game. Hlto Galore by Both Team* Three Rochester fllngers were touched for 11 hits, but the Red Wings pounded out 16 off five Bal- itlmore moundsmen. Ken Raffens- iberger, pitching for the third time | in four days, stemmed an Oriole rally in the seventh to get credit for his ninth victory. Pretzels Pezzullo's brilliant relief hurling enabled Toronto to mark up its fourth straight triumph. After Bill Weir had been belted out. Pezzullc pitched seven innings and gave up only three hits. Bob Carpenter cracked in the sixth after Jack Burns doubled and three walks and an error brought in three runs to win. Bob Porter stopped the slumping Newark club with eight hits and won his tenth game of the year despite five errors by his teammates. Montreal got all its runs off Johnny Haley in the first.
