Th irnnn called a meetins for Roanoke, Va., June 26-27, to dis cuss the future oi tne io-ieam cir cuit. .., , n rJt then named the following as tha conference executive committee rMax Farrington of George Washing- n if u tmtntn i n "Col. K. S. Purdie of VMI, Dr. R. iC'McDaniel of the University of Richmond, and Col. D. S. McAlister r of the Citadel. 9 Both groups scheduled meetings - tonicht to work out individual proo lems, although the seven who have broken away expect to do little f more than plan for the Raleigh meeting. ' ' " Operation of the new conference, as yet unnamed, has not been decided. . -, The new group hopes to operate wjth eigth teams. Although it gave , no indication as to wnauscnooi 'might be invited as the eighth member, there were indications that Vir ginia, a former member of the con- jlerence, would oe considered. .. .At Charlottesville, Va., athletic director Gus Tebell of Virginia said heJjelieves Virginia would "consider eriously" joining the new confer- ence. However, he said the ultimate -decision would have to be made ,bj? President Colgate Darden Jr, .and the board of visitors. Vi Tebell indicated Virginia had not been invited to join the new group, jbut he added that Virginia had had "absolutely no part in breaking up j the- Southern Conference," although lie had heard reports it might be oone. - J. T. Penney, faculty chairman of athletics at South Carolina, was named chairman of the seven-school crouo and O. K. Cornwell of the Vniversity q North Carolina de-'partment of physical education and athletic chairman, was named act- ipB secretary. He will draw up an - agenda for the June meeting at Raleiah. set for 1 P. M. (EST). I Main noints among the factors , entering into the negotiations between the two croups concerned j-fmancet and operation of the office of Commissioner Wallace wade, . The ten schools remaining in the conference will assume all confer ence assets and liabilities. ' Secre tary-treasurer D. S. McAlister, of The Citadel, said conference assets as of, June I would be about $150,000. The services of Commissioner -Wade's office and the conference booking agency, which he operates, will be made available also to the "new group until Jan. 1, 1955, when his four-vear contract expires. The machinery for the split was yut into motion earlier today shortly after conference president Max Farrington of George Washington t called the meeting to order. Penney read a resolution stating that the ' even schools were considering the possibility of withdrawal and requested the conference to consider the matter. - Farrington then called an execU' tive session and for two hours, be hind closed doors, they talked it over. The 11-item agenda which ?b.ad been due for consideration was . shelved by this major development. Each of the two groups named '-committee to discuss the matter. ?The two committees met with Wade at .a two-hour luncheons session. Then each committee reported back to its own group, Another brief f meeting of the two committees fol-s lowed. The whole conference was then v summoned to a late afternoon ses--sion. AU concerned maintained a grim . silence on the deliberations .while shuttling between conference r. rooms. ; tin December. 1950, Wade was .named commissioner for a four-year term. A total budget of $31,500 was established. This included $12,000 commissioner salary, $10,-!j000 for office operational expenses, ,and $9,500 to run the booking of-,.fice, which appoints and supervises football and basketball officials for v conference games. The Spring sports championships, .scheduled for next week, will go on as planned, both groups announced. - West Virginia, in its third year 1n the conference, was caught by surprise by the developments. Presi- - dent Ervin Stewart and athletic director Roy Hawley said they had - no idea at this time, what the uni-vejsiry's future course would be. i . 1 1 'i NorviewTeam Expected To Push Typh For Eastern District Track "M t By HANK MALONEY .f I Regardless of the condition of .foreman Field this afternoon only one tastern District record is likely; " to go bV the boards when the track teams representing the nine schools tangle in the annual meet beginning at 1:30. Defending champion Newport Tjews is favored to win again with 4he Norview Pilots cited as the team Jo give 1he .Typhoon the most trou-itIe. Woodrow Wilson of Portsmouth .nd Granby are also likely to put up -fluite battle but hardly figure to ' score at often as the two favorites. P, Hampton and Warwick will also --represent the Peninsula are against 'the boys, from across Hampton vtRoads. Of all the records for past Eastern District meets the one that seems most. likely to fall is Phil Levy's 4:43.3 mile for Newport News set 3 Tommy Weymouth, this season's Typhoon distance ace, has bettered 8 WPI Seven schools pulled Ul US ituwuuiif innuuno A's Get 16 Hits In 11-6 Win Over Division Nine By JIM GLEASON The .Apprentice Shipbuilders un leashed a 16-hit attack on three William and Mary Norfolk Division hurlers yesterday afternoon to score an 1 1-6 victory over Coach Bud Me- thenv s nine. The win was the sixth for Ap prentice against three losses. Bill? Haskins. ace Builder ngnt- hander, pitched the first eight in nings and slowed eight hits in regis tering his third triumph in .five deci sions. He walked eignt and struck out five. Tom Jones pitched the ninth in ning for Apprentice and gave up a run on two singles and a walk. Billy Cardwell, first of the Divi sion hurlers, yielded all the Appren tice runs and suffered the defeat. He was replaced in the fourth by Carl Herring, who in turn gave way to lommv Gregory in the seventh. CORSON LEADS WAY First baseman Gene Corson was the big man in the Builders' offense with a home run, triple and single in three ofhcial trips to the plate. He batted in three runs. Haskins and center fielder F. E. Collier each had three singles. Mel Gottlieb was the only Divi-sioner to get more than one hit, collecting three singles in four tries. The A's scored four times in the second inning on a walk, hit batsman, Gottlieb's error, and singles by Haskins and Collier. They picked up another run, un earned, in the third on two errors by second baseman Tom Wyszatycki and Collier's run-producing single to right-center held. A'S SCORE SIX Twelve Apprentice batsmen moved to the plate in the fourth as the A's pushed over six runs on eight solid safeties. Russ Strider, Bob Lincoln, Bill Hulin and Bobby Hammonds singled for two runs, Sebastian Hit Brings Cards 5-4 Triumph Lynchburg, May 8 Iff) Marty Sebastian singled with the bases loaded in the 11th inning to give the Lynchburg Cardinals a 5 to 4 victory over the York White Roses in the final game of the series tonight Dolf Regelsky led off with a walk and Wayne Wallace sacrificed.

Herman Gatling's 10 flat 100 run in 1950 for Maury seems safe, although,-Wilson's speedy George Riggs might have ideas of lowering or tying it Based on seasons records, his chances are indeed dim. Norview's Charlie Holt, Hampton's Donnie Jacques, Warwick's Billy Shaal and Newport News' Joe Hinnant will join Riggs in the century but none is likely to threaten Gatling's mark. Another mark that could possibly fall is ex-Newport News sensation Ashton ViolettV brilliant 51.2 440 record. Ronnie Jenkins and Jack Odell, both of Newport News, nave done as well as 52 flat and Jenkins anchored the Typhoon relay team in a terrific 50-second show in the Tidewater meet Other than in these two instances the Jbroad jump offers the best out of the 17-member Southern Corson lambasted a ball deep to the hole in right-center for a homer to score three more. Successive singles by Haskins, Collier and Reynolds accounted for the sixth run. Two walks, a fielder's choice and a throwing error by catcher Lincoln gave the Braves their first run in the seventh inning. In the eighth, the Division bunched six hits to score four times. Gottlieb, Dick Butler and Walter Forbes singled to load the bases with one away. Harry Knickerbocker chased home two runs on a line single to left field. Gregory slammed a sharp single in the hole between first and second to send home two more. ( The final score of the game was got in the uinih when the Braves counted on a single by Gottlieb, a walk, and Tom Wilson's humpback liner to left field.

CD The Roa noke Red Sox, coupled a neat seven- hit pitching performance by Lefty Lee Groeschen with some timely hitting of their own, to defeat Hagerstown, 5-4, at Maher Field to night and sweep the three-game series from the Braves, v Tall Groeschen scattered the seven hits masterfully and was in danger only in the sixth inning when the Braves scored three runs to take a 4-3 advantage. The south paw ex-serviceman picked up his second win of the year against one setback. He struck out eight and walked six in nine innings. Meanwhile, the Braves paraded four hurlers to the mound. The Rosox tagged the foursome for only six hits, but all if them came at the opportune time and paid off with runs. Lin Southworth, a righthander and the number three hurler tsed by Manager Dutch Dorman, suf fered the defeat his first of the year.

The triumph gave Richmond the series two games to one. Garvin Hamner, Richmond sec ond baseman, drew six consecutive walks. Dewey Wilkins, veteran southpaw, came on the scene in the fifth inning after starter Art Webb developed a streak of wildness by walking three successive batters. Wilkins received credit for the triumph, his third of the season against one defeat. Righthander Joe Corona failed to finish the first inning, when the Colts jumped to a 2-0 lead, and was charged with his first loss.

By CHARLES KARMOSKY Veteran southpaw Wayne Johnson's four-hit shutout pitch ing last night boosted the Baby Dodgers into undisputed leadership of the Piedmont League as Manager Stan Wasiak's team beat Norfolk here, 6-0, to square its early-season record at 1-1 with the defending champion Tars. The Dodgers were helped in gaining their lofty perch when Roanoke downed Hagerstown, 5-4, for the Braves third successive loss and dropped the Marylanders into second place. Norfolk and Portsmouth, which bowed to Richmond by 10-0, are now tied for third. A send-off crowd of 2,051 turned out to watch the Dodgers before they take off on their first long road trek of the season into Hagerstown and York and Johnson treated them to a fine mound performance. The crafty lefthander exhibited flawless control as he didn't allow a base on balls, struck out foJr Tars and spaced out Norfolk's four singles so well that he never found himself in any situation that hinted the Li'l Yanks might give him any trouble. , In going the full route for the first time and registering his second victory against one setback, Johnson retired the Tars in order in five innings with excellent support from his mates. I Manager Wasiak again turned in the night's defensive gem by robbing Tar shortstop Dick Sanders of a hit in the opening inning while Charlie Neal, classy Negro' second baseman, started two double plays which more than made up for his boot" of Wally Lance s high hop per in the fourth canto. EtUUMULU AIIAtK The Dodgers also used their first five hits to greatest advantage along with three Norfolk errors to chase starter Lloyd Merritt from the mound in the fourth before Ken Beardsley was rushed from the bullpen and blanked them in the final four and two-third innings with only two safeties. Norfolk had only two fairly solid base knocks against Johnson's offerings, by Jim Ranson in the second and George Liddy in the ninth. The other two, by Liddy and Ed Armstrong, were of the infield variety and Neal almost erased the one by Liddy in the sixth with a great stop behind second base and an off-balance throw. The new league leaders got their first run in the second, unearned but as it turned out enough for Johnson to win. Neal started the inning, took third when Tar second-sacker Pat Peskv dropped John Glenn's pop fly in short left field, and tallied when catcher Dick Bal lestrini grounded out. Wasiak got production- of the second run under way in the third canto with a line single to left and advanced clear to third when Big Jim Koranda almost decapitated Tar pitcher Merritt with a vicious drive through the box. Lou Colombo grounded out but Wasiak was able to score easily; LILLIS BACK IN FORM Some shoddy fielding by the Tars and a two-run single by shortstop Bob Lillis, who got into the hit columns after being horse-collared for the first time against these same Tars Wednesday, finished off Merr- Sam Snead Bags Brilliant 67 To Cop Lead In Greenbrier Open With Hogan On Heels By GEORGE BOWEN WTiite Sulphur Springs, W. Va., May 8. W Sam Snead went ahead of the pack trying to dethrone him' as champion on his own course oy snooting nis secona straight 67 today to lead Ben Hogan bv one stroke at the halfway stage of the 72-hole Greenbriar Open. Snead's 134 for the first 36 holes was six strokes better than par for that distance on the old White Course. Snead and Hogan went off even along with Pete Cooper on the second round played in windy and drizzling weather. The three had been a stroke behind Shelley Mav-field of Cedarhurst, L. I., the first round leader with a 66. Cooper, a tourney veteran from White Plains, N. Y., and Lou Bar bara of Deal, N. Y., wound up tied for third, two strokes behind the nace-settine Snead. Cooper added a 69 to his open itt in the fourth. A sharp shot past the third base bag by Glenn started the four-run splurge, the Negro centerfielder alertly taking second when second baseman Pesky muffed left fielder Ranson's throw-in. Danny Link then grounded to short but both runners were safe when the attempt to cut off Glenn at third misfired as Ed Armstrong let Sanders peg get by him. Ballestrini then chopped one to the left of the mound but Glenn scored with Lvnk taking second and the Dodger catcher making first safely on the fielder's choice. John son sacrificed both runners in his own cause and Lillis followed with his blast to left scoring the fourth and fifth runs. MERRITT YANKED On the throw home trying to cut 0ff Ballestini, Lillis scampered to second and that brought down the curtain on Merritt and brought on Beardsley, another righthander. Beardsley got Wasiak to fly out but if the thought he was "out of the woods Koranda changed his mind. The hard-hitting Dodger left fielder greeted his first pitch by lashing out another sizzling line drive, this one almost hitting base umpire Jerry Braica as it zoomed into center field. However. Beardsley finally put down the uprising as Lou Colombo flied out and kept himself in command of the situation the rest of the way. Only a double by Glenn and an intentional pass to Ballestrini in the ninth ruffled his otherwise perfect composure. Last nights crowd ot 2,051 boosted attendance totals for nine home games to 16.665 just 11,515 short of the 28-180 for all of last season and the two double plays ended a drought of three games for the teaifl's fine combo of Neal and Lillis.

T 2:00. A 2.051. ing 67 while Barbaro accomplished exactly the reverse rounds. I he 63-year-old Barbaro, an infrequent tourney player in recent years, pulled the most sensational shot of the tourney for an eagle two on the 380-yard second hole. His tee shot was 135 yards from the green and he dropped in the ball with an eight iron. He birdied four holes and he just missed a hole-in-one on the 18th. Both Snead and Hogan griped about their putting despite their sub-par rounds. Snead, playing fn the same shadows of his birthplace 41 years ago at Hot Springs, Va., won the past two Greenbriers 16 and 17 strokes ahead of par. Hogan was 21 better when he won in 1950. Snead started off like a house afire, taking birdies on the first two holes. He bogeyed the next, but then scored two more consecutive birdies and thought at that time "I was going to get a 63 or 64." Instead, he surrendered a stroke HISTORIC ENCOUNTER Braves Nudge Chicubs, 2-0, On Late Rally Milwaukee, May 8. HI Del Crandall's 390-foot triple and three eighth inning singles gave the Milwaukee Braves, a 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs tonight before 30,293 fans in the first 'major league night game in Wilwaukee's history. Frankie Baumholtz, Cubs' right fielder, slammed into the four-foot wire fence chasing Crandall's long poke in the sixth and was uncon scious for 15 minutes. He was carried from the field on a stretcher. A clubhouse examination later showed he had suffered a severely bruised right arm and left knee and hand. He was taken to a hospital for treatment. Crandall scored on the play when Eddie Miksis threw wild on the play. The Braves other run was scored after Warren Hacker, Cub starter who had given up only two hits in seven innings, was lifted for a pinch-hitter and replaced by Dutch Leonard. Crandall singled with one out, paused while pitcher Johnny An-tonelli flied to right, and scored on successive singles by Bill Bruton and Johnny Logan.

It was the Red Sox' first win in 13 tries against the world champions, who won the three previous 1953 clashes in New York. The first Red Sox run, against big Johnny Sain in the second inning, was Dick Gernert's fifth homer of the season, a mighty drive over the left field fence. Hec "Skinny" Brown gave the Yankees seven hits but kept them well scattered. The lone New York tally came in the top of the scond, which Mickey Mantle opened by drawing a base on balls. With one out, Gil McDougald lashed down the third base line and was credited with a single when the ball took a freakish bounce and struck George Kell on the face. Billy Martin unlimbered .a two- out single to drive in Mantle. The former then was forced by Sain, who had benten the Red Sox, 6-3, in bis first l!o3 start against them, thanks to a Mantle three-run homer in the .ninth inning. After Gernert thrilled the packed crowd of 33,055 spectators with his mighty blow, they were kept on the edge of their seats by Sain until Goodman came through with his overtime game-winning clout. It was a 285-foot drive down the right field foul line, after Brown had flied out to Mantle in center field. After the Yanks' early scoring success, they never really threatened Brown, who totaled five strikeouts while giving up but one base on balls. Sain whiffed four while passing one batter.

Senators Top Bobby Shantz On Big Rally Philadelphia, May 8 W The Washington Senators whipped the Philadelphia Athletics 10-7 tonight, teeing off against Bobby Shantz and Charley Bishop for five runs in the eighth and taking advantage of four walks and a fly ball to register two more runs in the ninth. The loss was charged to Shantz, his third of the season against the same number of wins. The little lefthander pitched a steady three-hit game up to the fatal eighth. Relief hurler Julio Moreno received Icredit for the win as he held the A's to one hit over the last three innings. In the Senators' big flareup, Eddie Yost led off with a sinele. Wayne Terwilliger and Vernon. Pete Runnels walked and Bishop took over for Shantz. Jim Busby hit Charley's first offering for a two-run double to put the Senators in front 8-7 at that point. In the ninth, Yost lined out and then Terwilliger, Jensen, and Vernon walked to load the bags. Marion Fricano replaced Bishop and walked Vollmer, forcing home Terwilliger. Gene Verble's fly sent Jensen home after the catch.
