Two games are on tap for tonight and three are slated for tomorrow night, Top game in the county should be the Blytheville-Osceola tilt at Haley Field starting at 8 o'clock tomorrow night. It will be the third in the present series between the two teams. Blytheville has won the two previous contests handily. Final Drills Coach Russell Mosley scheduled final drills for the Chickasaws with loosening up drills under the lights at Haley Field tonight. Final heavy work in preparation for the game \vas completed yesterday. First activity of the season on Mississippi County soil tonight at Keiser when the Yellow- jackets take on Shawnee in a District 3B contest. Keiser is defending champion of the conference. The other game scheduled for tonight is on the junior high level. It pits Blytheville's Papooses, in their first outing under Coach John Kolclus, against Maiden at Maiden. The Paps were beaten only twice last year. Once by Jackson, Tenn., and once by Whitehaven, Tenn. Another District 3B game tomorrow night has Wilson playing host Yanks, Chisox in Middle Indians, Red Sox Apply Pressure From Both Ends By ED WILKS Th« Associated Press It looks as if New York and Chicago, caught in a vise between Cleveland and Boston, are feeling most of the pressure in that tight American League race while the first-place Indians and the robust Red Sox are playing 'em free and loose. Cleveland, making a half-game lead look big, rumbled past Baltimore 6-0 last night as Early Wynn gained his 200th major league victory and gave the Tribe seven triumphs in the last nine games. Boston blasted Detroit 7-4 .for their sixth straight success. The Yankees and White Sox -got home safe to hold the pace, but ihr-y had a much tougher time of it. Whitey Ford spun his second one-hitter in six days, yet the second-place Yanks had to' scrap to beat Kansas City 2-1. And Chicago, V/2 games behind Cleveland and the"" same margin ahead of fourth-place Boston, had a bad scare before edging Washington 4-3. Can Win Today In the National League, Brooklyn whipped Milwaukee 3-1, giving the Dodgers no worse than a tie for iht flag. One more victory by the Brooks, or another Milwaukee defeat, puts the pennant in Brooklyn Wynn, a 35-year-old right-hander who led the league with 23 victories a year ago, marked up a 16-9 record for the season with a five- hitter .He walked three and had runners on base most of the time, but the Tribe backed him with four double plays and Larry Doby's two homers that drove in four runs. Only teammate Bob Feller tops Wynn in victories among active major league pitchers. Ford, who one-hit Washington last Friday, gave one of his six walks ahead of Jim Finigan's two- out, ground-rule double in the seventh and after intentionally filling the bases, uncorked a wild pitch that left him in a 1-1 tie. The Yanks finally pulled it out when Arnie Portocarrero, who no- hit New York until the fifth, walked home the winning run in the ninth. Washington, trailing all the way, pushed over a run in the ninth on a walk and two singles off Jack Harshman, who had allowed just three hits 'til then. Millard Howell relieved and was tagged for a pinch single by Clint Courtney that drove in another run, ,but Jim Busby's perfect peg from center knocked off the potential tying, run at third. Then Busby gathered in Eadie Yost's fly for the final out. In the other games, Bob Friend tossed a one-hitter, striking out eight and waking none, as Pittsburgh beat Chicago 2-0;. New York walloped St.Louis 8-2 with winner Johnny Antonelli hitting one of three Giant home runs, and Cincinnati made the best of two errors to overhaul Philadelphia 6-3. The only Cub hit off Friend, who won his llth, was Prank Baum- holta's scratch single in the fourth. Childress Hurt; Out For Season Word has been received here that Bob Childress, former star Chlckasaw football and basketball player, has been injured in football practice at the University of Arkansas and will be red-shirted for the year. Childress suffered a shoulder separation in the blocking pits earlier this week and Razorback coaches decided he would be oui so long with the injury they would be better off to. have him red-shirt- ed, in order not to lose a year of eligibility. Childress had recently been promoted to the second unit after impressing- coaches with his improvement and might have been kept on the squad for regular play if he hadn't been injured, reports indicated. Turner Causes Bos/7/o Some Bad Moments to Lepanto. The other game scheduled is at Burdette as the Pirates entertain Marion. SYRACUSE, N. Y. (# — Welterweight champion Carmen Basilio and his managers took time today for a second thought before deciding whether to challenge for Carl (Bobo) Olson's middleweight title. Gil Turner gave them cause to pause last night. Basilio narrowly edged out a split decision over the young Philadelphia Negro in their IQ-round, non-title fight in the War Memorial Auditorium. Turner figured his surprising showing had earned him another chance at Carmen, this } one for the title; Turner, who weighed 151 to Basilo's i50"i. said he was ready to tackle Carmen with the title at state. Referee Ruby Goldstein scored it 5-3-2 Basilio, Judge Ted Sheiis called it 7-2-1 Basilio and Judge nose. However, he's slated to start in the right guard position. Remainder of the probable lineup for the Tigers: Ed Peters, left tackle; Barry Trainor, left guard: Don Snow or Jerry Figgins. center; Leon McCoy, right tackle; Gerald Clayton, right end. Also on the injured list are Ted j Streete and Tommy King. j Expected to see defensive action ! are Jim Southern, tackle, and Bob Tanner, guard. While Caruthersvllle has a total r of 36 boys oui, Portageville has 31 i tin, will probably see plenty of ac- j including four lettermen— Jack j ' tion, as will George Cook at right i half. Cook is a junior who scored ! touchdowns in the last minutes of | play in two games last year. The way the teams stack lip, one [touchdown could be ali that would j be needed for a victory. ] Gif[ Edgerton, a junior who's ex- j pprienced in the backfield, will be i out of action for six weeks because of a broken hand. • Goodman. Bob Howard, Jeff Brannam and Joe Brands. Last year, Caruthersville broke Portageville's 23-game winning streak with a 31-0 victory.

(AP) — Reaction to FayetteviUt High School's plan to use Negro football players this fall varied from "no comment" to -"no objections." The off-the-cuff opinions were expressed last night by school officials whose high school teams are scheduled to play the Pay- etteville Bulldogs this season. Fayettevile Supi. Wayne H. White, whose high school last year became one of the first in . the South to integrate the races, asked heads of the 10 schools on Fayetteville's schedule to let him know immediately how they felt about an* integrated football team. Four Negroes are trying oul for the Fayetteville "team. Ft. Smith 'Uncertain' The closest thing to a rejection came from Supt. Chris Corbin of Fort Smith. He said he was "uncertain" whether the Grizzlies would agree to play Fayetteville: if the Negroes played. Other Arkansas teams on the Fayetteville schedule include Siloam Springs, Subiaco Academy, Rogers, Springdale, Van Buren, Harrison and RusseUvllle- Also,; the Bulldogs will pay Sprlngfied: and. Joplin, Mo. i Several superintendents whose teams are on Fayetteville's schedule said flatly that they had no Dick Albino made it even at five j apiece. The Associated Press gave j it to Basilic 5-4-1. I objections to Negro players, and that they anticipated no objections from their communities. They were Father Robert Lazzari of Subiaco Academy, G. W. Black of Siloam Springs, Joe Fay Moore at Rogers and J. O. Kelly at Springdale. Missouri Clubs Have Negroes Springfield and Joplin, the only two out-of-state teams that Fayetteville will play, both have Negroes trying r or their teams. Supt. Wallace Bailey of Russell- vile and Supt. Everett Kelly of Van Buren both declined comment, pending a formal ruling by their school boards. At Little Rock, J. M. (Johnie) Burnett, executive secretary of the Arkansas Athletic Association which supervises high school sports, said he knew of nothing in the organization's by-laws prohiB- Hing integrated athletics.
