Half Way Home On Ticket Sales KANSAS CITY (AP)-Boosters have sold 10,028 season tickets in the campaign to move the Dallas Texans of the American Football League to Kansas City. The goal is 25,000. The drive will end May 15. Ray Evans, campaign chairman, said Friday he believes more than 12,000 will be sold at the halfway mark—next Wednseday. "We are entering the final phase of this drive, and I think we can do it if we all make sure everyone has a chance to buy," Evans said. H. Roe Bartle, former mayor, said 49 boys at an orphanage in Mooseheart, 111., had each given a dollar and sent the money to him to buy a ticket for a deserving high school athlete. A's Split Twin Ball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sloppy fielding, tight pitching and base stealing were the features of baseball games played by the Kansas City Athletics Friday. Eight errors marred a 13-inning marathon at Washington which the A's won 12-10 on George Aiusik's two-run single. Each club made four bobbles in the contest, the first game of a twi - night douhleheader. The game lasted 4 hours 15 minutes. Bill Fischer was the winning pitcher, picking up his third victory without a loss in relief. Tom Cheney, who hasn't allowed an earned run in 27 innings, shut out tiie Athletics 6-0 on three Laff-A-Day "All I remember is parking it" hits in the second half of the twin bill at Washington, striking out 12 basemen in the process. A double by losing pitcher Ted Bowsfield in the sixth inning was the first hit off Cheney, who issued only one walk. The other hits were a double by Chuck Essegian in the eighth and a bad-hop single by Jose Tartabull in the ninth. The shutout was Cheney's second and his third consecutive victory without a loss. Bowsfield is 1-3. School Objects To Probation OMAHA (AP)-"Isn't that the nuts," said Dr. Milo Bail, president of the University of Omaha, when informed his school had been placed on indefinite probation by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Omaha was penalized for having played in a non-NCAA approved football game last fall. The game was the All - Sports Bowl at Oklahoma City. "We can sponsor the NCAA college baseball world series but we are out on our ear in NCAA competition," said Dr. Bail. Omaha took over sponsorship of the series last June. The University of Nebraska previously was the sponsor during the years the series was held in Omaha. Omaha is both a member of the NCAA, competing in baseball, and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for other sports. Dr. Bail said he understood Omaha would be given until Oct. 1 to get in or get out of the NCAA. Omaha coaches favor ' staying with the NAIA.
