Double Winner at '.'State Class 4 Track Meet Dix is iene Skims to Wins In Both Hurdles Sets School Record In 120-Yard Highs Gene Dix, Marshfield's sensational junior hurdler, swept both the 120-yard highs and the 180-yard lows in the state Class A (rack meet at Milwaukee Saturday to give the Tigers 10 points and a share of eighth place. Little known outside of Central Wisconsin, Dix brushed aside the challenge of the big city athletes to win the highs in 14.5 seconds and the lows in 20.5 seconds. His time in the high hurdles is a new Marshfield Senior High School ree-ord and was only .4 of a second off the state record. He was one of two double winners in the Class A division. Green Bay West's 6 - foot 4 inch, 225-pound Don Ilendrickson got off a tremendous IBS-foot flip in the discus and also captured the shot put. Waukesha, not considered a threat prior to the meet, won the team title on the last event to be reported the pole vault. The Blackshirts scored 1!) points. White-fish Hay was second with 16. The Hay lost eight points when it was disqualified in the sprint medley after finishing second. Bay runner Al Phister had qualified for the state in the mile run, but was scratched in that event and ran on the relay team instead. This is not permissible under WIAA rules. Perhaps due to the unseasonable cold weather and light rain, there were no records broken in the meet. One of the outstanding jjerformnnces was turned In by Appleton's Don Loker, who ran the mile In 4:30.2, winning by 60 yards. His time was less than three seconds off the slat rec ord. Dix's feat of winning the high and low hurdles reminds Marsh-field track fans of the Tigers' last double winner, In fact Marshfield's only oilier winner at a state track meet. In 1(151) .lerry Witt, competing in Class A all hough Marsh-lie Id was a Class li school at the tunc, swept the 100-yard dash and the 200-yard dash. KIMCtlMH I.

II y JACK HANI) Assorluted Press Kports Writer It lias been a year and two days Min e Hoy Face lost a boll game. The MllHburgh relief ace picked up his seventh victory of 1059 Sunday while the Pirates wero dosing in on the National League leaders wilh a double victory over Cincinnati. Face lost to Milwaukee, May 30, 10.rB. lie won five lust year and seven this year for a 12 0 record. During Unit period he has appeared in (It ball games. No wonder Maimger Danny Jlurtaugh in-sisls be has the best bullpen man in baseball. It was Face's three Innings of shutout pitching that helped the Pirates pull out. a wild 14 II second game with Cincinnati after the Pirates had won the opener 62. The Pirates thrust last wlnter'a deal down the throats of the Beds as Smoky Burgess and Bon Bonk, traded to Pittsburgh by Cincinnati, each hit three home runs. Bob Skinner contributed a pair, including a grand slammer, in the f rani ic second game. While the Pirates continued to move up nfler their sorry start, both the second place San Francisco Giants and fourth place Lon Angeles Dodgers also closed in on Milwaukee. The Giants turned back Chicago 6 3 and the Dodgers nippetl St. Louis 5-3 while the Braves were splitting two with the last place Phils. At the close of the holiday weekend, the Braves led the Giants by 2'a games, the Pirates by 4' and the Dodgers by 5 games. Robin Roberts shut out the Braves wilh four hits, 6 0, in the opener, his first complete game since April 22. It was his 20'.Hh major league triumph. Warren Spahn moved up to tie Ball of Famer Carl Ihibbell wilh 233 National League victories by throwing a four hitter at the Phils while winning 2 1. In contrast to the homer packed gumes at Cincinnati, strikeout pitching predominated in California. Johnny Antonelli struck out 11 although he needed relief help from Stu Miller when the Cubs started to kick up in the ninth. Two Dodger pitchers. Sandy Koufax and Danny McDcvitt, w bitted 14 Cardinals and St. Louis pilchers turned in nine strikeouts. The two-club total of 23 tied a National League record. Roberts bested Lew Huiilclte in the first game at Milwaukee where 2B.5W, largest crowd ui County Stadium since opening day, saw the two active Nl. pitchers with the most victories Roberts and Spahn. Spahn got all the help he needed when Wes Covington hit a two-run homer off Ray Somproch in the first. The lone Phil run off Spahn was a pinch homer by Gene Frees, his filth of tho year.

AIRPLANE SERVICE FLIGHT 'TRAINING' PHONE rU 4-8100 Student Training I ndrr Korean lU Bill Marshfield Airways, Inc 500 Winners to Keep on Racing Uncle Sam Will Get Cut of Ward's Cash By DALE BURGESS Associated Press Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS AP) -Rodger Ward, loaded down with loot from the richest auto race ever run, will go right on competing in the world's most dangerous sport. Ward and, his car owner, Leader Cards, Inc., of Milwaukee, won $10fi,8fi0 in the 43rd 500-mile race Saturday. The World War II fight er pilot's take under the customary contract would be 40 per cent, $42,740. That means Ward will be risk-Ing his neck largely for the U.S. Treasury the rest of this season-but his pretty brunette wife, Jo, says he probably would race for nothing. "I'm going to make the rest of the USAC championship races and possibly some sports car events if I can get a good car," Ward said. His next race will be the 100-miler at Milwaukee next Sunday. The last two Indianapolis winners, Sam Hanks and Jimmy Bryan, passed up the rest of the circuit after their big winnings at the Speedway. It took Ward nine attempts before he won the big pot. Only a dedicated race driver would have continued after his experience in the 11)55 Memorial Day classic. His front axle broke, triggering the four-car crash that killed two-time-winner Bill Vukovich. He entered the 500 again the next year and finished eighth his best until last Saturday. Ward escaped injury in another sensational crash April 4 at Day- tona Beach, in a 50-mile event that followed the world's record 100-rniler in which he finished second to Jim Itathmann of Miami. Ward set a new Speedway record of 133,857 miles an hour, beating Jim lathmann by 23-27 seconds or about a mile, Bathmann's 135.6I0 also topped Hanks' 1957 record of 135,601. It turned out to be a four-car race and Ward got a big assist from his smooth pit crew and air jacks which were installed in his A.J, Watson-built car. Be made three stops for fuel and tires in a grand total of one minute and 13 seconds. Johnny Thomson of Boyertown, Pa,, the fastest qualified, had to make four pit itops, broke a torsion bar spring and finished third. Ward let Rathmann, Thomson and Pat Flaherty of Chicago, the B)5fl winner, do most of the fighting for the lead in the first half of the race while he conserved his tires to save a pit stop. Flaherty crashed Into tht main-stretch wall on bis 163rd lap but escaped injury. Ward led the last 115 laps. There wore six mishaps. Injuring two drivers nnd a crewman, but no fatalities, Tony Hettenhnusen finished fourth for the second straight year. Paul Goldsmith of St. Clair Shores, Mich., eliminated in the 15-car smashup last year in his first start, took fifth.

Tony Anthony Drops to 6th MfLWAUKEE Of) - Tony An thony, a top contender for the light heavyweight title for a long while, was dropped to the No. 6 spot today in the monthly Na tional Boxing Assn. ratings. Anthony, a jolting puncher, took a nose-dive in the 175-pound class by being soundly beat by Jesse Bowdry of St. Louis in a na tionally-televised 10 rounder in Chicago. Bowdry, a 3-1 underdog, defeated Anthony so neatly that he moved up from seventh to fifth in the NBA ratings. Rated ahead of him as contenders for the title held by Archie Moore are Harold Johnson, Yvon Durelle, Eric Schoppner of Germany, and Sonny Ray. Bowdry'g victory over Anthony earned him "Boxer-of-the-Month honors" from Uie NBA. In the heavyweight division, In-gemar Johansson of Sweden was named by the NBA as the top contender for Floyd Patterson's title. The two are scheduled to meet later this month in New York.

He has escaped from the American League cellar. The Washington chapter is to blame. They forgot to lock the basement door over the long weekend. Casey Stengel's men swept three in a row and charged into sixth place, blinking in daylight after 11 days in the dungeon. This is blue Monday for the club members. New York shows definite signs of snapping out of it. They clobbered Washington twice on Saturday, scoring 22 runs, and won Sunday's single game 3-0 on Bill Skowron's three-run homer in the ninth and Bob Turley's two-hit pitching. The Yanks still are four games under .500, but the league is beginning to come back to them. Cleveland, still in first place, is only six games away. The Yanks still have 112 games to play. Charlie Maxwell did the Indians in with a three-run homer on Jim Perry's first pitch in the ninth for Detroit's 7-4 victory. Jerry Davie came through with his first com plete game in the majors, a four hitter after a wobbly start. Cleveland held its one-game lead over Chicago because the White Sox were thumped early and late by Kansas City. The A's knocked out Early Wynn while scoring five runs in the sec ond and added four more in the sixth on ' Preston Ward's grand slam homer for a 9-1 decision- Baltimore dropped Boston into last place, five percentage points behind Washington, when Hal (Skinny) Brown beat the Red Sox 2-1. Brown staggered through the first two innings and settled down to pitch a four-hitter. He foiled Ted Williams' bid for his 2,500th big league hit. Williams went hit-less in three official trips. Camilo Pascual did his very best to keep the Yanks in last place, matching Turley's two-hit shutout for the first eight innings. There were two out in the ninth when Mickey Mantle, doubled to right center. After Yogi Berra was walked intentionally, Skowron lined Pascual's second pitch into the left center bleachers for his eighth home run.
