FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Landy and Bannister Are to Compete In Canada August 7 VANCOUVER, B. C. (AP)—The fifth British Empire' Games, the commonwealth's own "Olympics," came into being today with some of the world's top athletes—including two men who have broken the four-minute mile—ready for fresh assaults on world standards. Climaxing months of preparation in all parts of the world, track and field men, swimmers and fencers were set for nine days of competition in what was conceded to be Britain's greatest sports spectacle since inauguration of the games 24 years ago. , Big Parade The competitions were still 24 hours away. Colorful full-dress uniforms, bands, pageantry and the parade of 775 athletes from 24 Legion Wins On Tight Hurling Doug Dorris Gets Eighth Straight Victory on Hill By J. P. Friend Doug Dorris tied the Little League record with his eighth consecutive victory without defeat as the American Legion turned back the inspired Lions Cub, 2-0, yesterday afternoon in one of the snappiest and The Legion righthanded ace needed only 57 to tame the 1953 countries will open the games officially tonight. The last few days have marked a tapering-off in practice work. There is at least one exception— John Landy of Australia. The man who wrote into world, records an almost unbelievable 3:58 for the mile is perhaps the most arduous of all in training. Bannister in Secret A week irom tomorrow the world expects to find out what happens when Landy meets England's Roger Bannister, the man who first smashed the four-minute mile with 3:59.4. Bannister has worked largely in secret 'but Landy has galloped in full view of hundreds of spectators. John clipped off three quarters of a mile a few days ago in 2:59.4. LITTLE LEAGUERS—Not in the league lead, but making things tough for the league leading American Legion clubs are the Kiwanis Little Leaguers (right) and those of the BlytheviUe Shriners. Kiwanis has been Legion's biggest threat this year, finishing second to the Legion club in the first half of play. (Courier News Photos). The father of Hank Bullough, Michigan State's all purpose football guard, Levi Bullough, was a college soccer player in England. first. Morris already was camped on second. To The Rescue Failing to captalize on an error in the third, Well's single and subsequent theft of second, the Legions generated their usual last ditch stand and it netted one run, which proved quite unnecessary but loomed JUI.UIUM» t<J uaiiit mi\, j.yu« -. . , , . •. /-, -._ ^.ti. c^rn, and match winning sfcein god and tag to Coaches Ott^a of Joe Bratcher, Lion Ace, now graduated to the PONY loop. j Doug doled out only two hits, a scratch past the box, and a clean; drive to left field. He fanned five and issued no base on balls. Dieplaying his best form since talcing over the Lions Club mound, gum-chewing, handsome Billy Nelson was impressive even in defeat. True he was tagged for a half dozen blows, but three were infield variety. He issued only one base on balls, fielded his position very well. Fine Fielding JesA Raspberry also sparkled defensively. He came up with three super fielding gems, the most scintillating being a scoop up of a low throw by shortstop Jimmy Killett in the second. He robbed Dorris of a hit with one-handed stab of his sizzling grass cutter to start the third. Jimmy Killett and Bobby Jacques turned in fine jobs infield. Little Jerry (Monk) Rounsavall, peppery Legion catcher, was the offensive difference between the two rivals. Twice he came up with Mike Boyd in scoring position and came through like the competitive trooper that he is. The first clutch blow came & the first and provided the run that was needed, though an extra was added later. With Johnny Ray Plunkett and "Rusty" Moore perished Boyd beat out a hit to deep second. Gary Gestring made a magnificent stop of the difficult hopper but was unable to nabe the fleet Legion second sacker. Dorris treated with proper respect and given nothing to swing at, was eventually passed. "Monk" pasted the second pitch to right field and Mike easily scampered in. Old Fashioned Duel or the next three innings the enthusiastic fans were treated to a first class, but old fashioned pitchers battle. Dorris mowed down the first nine batters to face him before Frank Alford was safe as Prank Wells permitted the runner to kick the ball loose from his glove while crossing the bag. The Lions, heartened by this break, made their most serious scoring effort. Raspberry, failing to bunt "safely, forced Alford. Boyd took Jerry Hill's grounder and stepped on on second to retire Raspberry. Killett was hit by a pitched ball. Bobby Jacques' difficult hopper got past Dorris, despite a great effort, and went for a hit to fill the bases. But Doug deftly eased out of the jam by slipping a three strike past Gestring. Danny Morris led off the fifth with the tons clean safety off Dorris but was caught in a double play on Billy Nelson's attempted bunt that was gobbled up by the alert Rounsavall who quickly tossed to Fox) Mullins and his first sluete- enant, J. L. Plunkett. Boyd punched a one bagger to right with one out in the top of the sixth, Dorris' high, hard hopper kept on going past the strenuous effort Rounsavall picked the first serving of Gestring, Boyd racing to third. Rounsavall picked the first serving to center and again registered his keystoner. The Lions Club final gasping effort came too late and too little. Two were gone when one of Dorris' fast pitches grazed Hill's shirt. Craig sounded the death knall by turning Killett'e smash into a force out at Field Bunched At Kansas City Hole In One Gives Young Pro a Lead KANSAS CITY (ffj — Youthful Mike Krak, virtually unknown on the professional golf circuit, held a one-stroke lead today going into the second round of the $20,000 Kansas City Open Tournament.
