Aug. 12 (JP). Bg Jack Medics of Seattle and little Margie Centring of Loa Angeles took all the gold medals left unguarded around the Olympic swimming stadium today, St. Loul. Aug.

13 W). The pitching combination of Larry French an Clay Bryant held the St. Louis Cardinals to five bit today, but two of them, were bom run that sent the Chicago Cubs down to second place In defeat, 5 to 8. Joe Medwick doubled to start the second Inning, went to third on aa Infield out and scored the first St. Louis run on Virgil Davis' long fly.

la the fourth, be came through wltb a 374-foot homer. After Terry Moore had singled in the sixth, Charlie Grimm believed it wise strategy to walk Medwick. Mize' answer was a towering home run. Demsree opened tbe Cub's second inning with a tingle, but O'De forced, hlra. Augte Galan followed with a single and It took another hit by Phil Cavaretta to produce a run.

Medics scored a sensational victory In the 400-meter freestyle ship, passing Shumpet Uto 20 meters from home to win by one length of bis arms in Olympic record-making time Thirteen-year-old Margie dived like of 4:44.6. a blond angel to beat out ber team mate.

Three successive single by Demaree, 0Dea and Galan brought the final run, but it took fine fielding by tht Cards to (top OTJea. When OTJes, tried to tcore on Bill Jurge' long fly, Moore cut him down at the plat with perfect throw to Davl for ft double play, the only one of the game.

appeared to have the tile in ber grasp, With Miss Rawls second and Mrs, Dorothy Poynton Hill of Loa Angeles third, America swept the top places in the second divine event in as many daya, duplicating the blanket finish by Dick Degener, Marshall Wayne and Al Greene la the men's springboard event. At the end of the fifth struggle In i the Olympic tank America held three gold medals. Japan two and Hungary and Holland one each. Furthermore the men held a two point lead over Japan in the fight for team honors, 38 to 36, while the girls led Holland 20 to 17 1-2. What made Medlca's and Margie's triumphs all the more noteworthy was the magnificent manner in which -msfS itg This excellent general view of the new Olympic stadium at Berlin giv Athletes from several nations were competing In a distance ran when the the games, (Associated Press Photo.) es an Idea of the Immense throngs picture was made.

Crowds of more which gathered for the track events. than 100,000 were attracted dally by Murla Called Greatest Dixie Bantam Since Days of Herman i each responded under pressure. -I Medica, who bad only barely re-covered from a chest cold, trailed the I fleeting little Utc a full length when they turned into the final 100 me-ters. Probably no one among the 000 In the ttadium except Medica thought he had any chance. But when they hit the final turn 50 meters from home the Washing- ton star had reduced the deficit to half a length.

Down they came over the final i stretch, Medlca's long, steady strokes slowly and surely narrowing the gap despite Uto's desperate sprint. Twenty meters before the goal they were even for an' instant and then Medica inched ahead and the race was over. The Seattle Seal's time lopped one second off the new 1 Olympic record made by Uto two days ago. It was the second straight defeat WORLD'S LEADING TROTTING RACE WON BY FILLY ROSALINE IN RECORD-SHATTERING TIME 13,000 Harness Race Fans See Young Gibson White's Streamlined Bay Contestant Cover One-Mile Track in Two Fastest Times Ever Recorded By JACK ct nnv. (t'nited Press Staff Correspondent.) Goshen, N.

Aug. 12 (IP). Young Gibson White's stream-lined bay filly Rosaline won the Hambletonlan race, in record-shattering time as more Rosaline won the 35,643 classic heats, blazing around the one-mile of fastest times ever recorded for the event: 2 minutes l'i seconds In the first 'f for the Japanese in a race they V. thought they had In the bag. TJto clocked in Shozo Makino, teammate, 4:48.1, and Ralph Flanagan of Miami, fourth in 4:52.7.

Miss Gestrlng's victory was al- most as thrilling. Dead silence i'" hung over the crowd as the yoiuigster stood on the board and prepared to make her final T'. optional dive. She was 13-100 of a point be- hind Miss Rawls at that stage and needed to score a brilliant 15.07 to tie for the champlon- ship. The difficulty getting a score like that from seven-hard-; boiled Judges from as many different countries may be gathered from that fact that up to that point only seven dives had been over 15 points.

Two of them belonged to Margie, So the snub-nosed, freckled-face little "baby" member of the team chose one of the toughest dives of them all a one and one-half back somersault and shot the works. She scarcely stirred the water when she hit. When her head bobbed out of the water she was the Olympic champion. They gave her 16 points lor the dive, surpassed during the day only by her 16.20 made on a marvelous forward somersault with a half twist. The first to grab Margie and pump her band at the edge of the pool was Miss Rawls, who showed no trace of the disappointment which she was bound to have felt.

All In all, Margie clinched the gold metal by scoring an aggregate of of 63.8 points to 83.8 for Miss Rawls and 82.36 for Mrs. Hill.

Sports Writers of Orleans Praise Boy Who Meets Roberts Friday A clever, two-fisted fighter, who Is rated by New Orleans sport writers as the greatest bantam since the days of Champion Pete Herman, will test the fighting ability of Red Roberts, of Hodge, In the feature event of an all-boxing program Friday night In the Municipal auditorium, The scrapper thus described Is George Murla who has defeated practically every 118-pounder to perform In the Crescent city In the past year. He has waded through all home-town talent and has more than held his own against fighters from other sections of the country. He carries the stamp of approval of the Louisiana State Athletic association commissioners, and their word to the local promoter Is that Murla will prove a big hit with fight fans of this section. Murla and two other Orleanlans who will be seen In action on Friday night's program are Herman Voight and George Holmes, The trio arrive Thursday evening, and the report from New Orleans is that the boys areVln fine condition and determined to give Shreveport fans a great battle.

Voight will meet Fort McNaughton of Alexandria and Holmes will take on the rugged Joey Angle, bantam of Barksdale field, and formerly of New Orleans. Roberts who was featured In a se ries of bouts at Barksdale field and boxed Vernon Palmer, army feather' weight, 15-rounds, Is 1n fine fettle for the ten-round test. He has trained daily and claims he will be In better condition than when he went the marathon route with Palmer. The red -head Is clever and fast, and aggressive enough to make It In teresting for any 120-pounder. The Angle-Volgt bout will be for six round tnd Holmes-McNaughton mill is scheduled for the same distance.

The heavyweight number will be offered by Handsome Jack League, who has been seen here In the role of a wrestler, and Jack Sanders or East Texas.
