The White Sox, with Jack Harshman tossing a four-hitter, smacked 14 hits while blowing over the Tribe 8-1 last night in the opener of their crucial four-game series. The Yankees, meanwhile, claimed second place all for themselves, a half game behind Chicago, as Whitey Pord .one-hit Washington and Mickey Mantle delivered . a three-run homer in a 4-2 triumph. All of which left the Indians Hi games behind the White Sox, fighting to gain at least a split with Chicago while confronted with two double-headers in the next .three days. Pressure on Murlers- The White Sox, too, have a pair of twinbills ahead — Sunday at Cleveland and Monday at Detroit —but Harshman, pitching out of his own jams, gave Manager Marty Marion's mound staff a complete game and a rest.

'Slats'Stays Calm After Chisox Top Battered Tribe CLEVELAND UfT—Did that 8-1 victory over Cleveland Indians last night fill the heart of the Chicago White Sox manager with a burning conviction that his team will win the American League pennant? "I'll bet I've heard that question a thousand times, 1 ' Marty Marion observed over a telephone in his hotel mom here. In just that form? "No, how about it? Did he figure his men would sweep the remaining three games in the series: And then stay right on top in the race? Biff Victory "One victory doesn't mean anything.
