PAGE TEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1956 National Loop Race Tightens As Cincy Wins, Braves Lose Yanks Snap Losing Streak, Pick Up Game On Indians ANOTHER KICK COMING By ED WILKS The Associated Press Free-speaking Frank Lane dpals In wholesale lots and becomes the best known trader since Mad Man Muntz, while Gabe (for Gabriel) Paul blows a muted horn, deal? 'em one or two at a time and ha« nothing to show for it but n pennant contender in his Cincinnati Redlegs. Frantic Frank built his reputation with the Chicago White Sox before taking over as general manager of the St.Louis Cardinals, but he met his match in Gabe. Take Cincinnati's 7-6, 10-inning victory over the Cards Monday night. It hoisted the Redlegs within two games of Milwaukee's National League leaders and the winning run was knocked in by ex- Cardinal Alex Grammas after fine relief work by Hal Jclfcoat and Buster Freeman, who were picked starter was Jackie lefty who originally up by Gabe in little publicized deals. The victory also edged the Red- legs to within five percentage points of Brooklyn's idle second- place Dodgers, who moved to within l}a games of the Braves, beaten 5-4 in 11 innings by the Chicago Cubs. In the American League, young Ralph Terry, with relief help, won his major league debut as the New York Yankees ended their losing streak at six games* cooling off Boston's Red Sox 4-3. The victory again gave the Yanks an eight- game ' bulge over second-place Cleveland, beaten by Detroit 9-0 in the only other game scheduled. Grammas —' a shortstop Paul dealt to the Cards for $100,000 a few seasons back, then reclaimed from Lane this spring plus outfielder Joe Frazier in return for utiliryman Chuck Harmon — delivered a two-out single* fo score' Gus Bell with the clinching run in the 10th off reliefer Harry Jackson. Bell. whom. Paul picked up from Pittsburgh in 1952 for three lesser lights, had doubled to open tie frame. He also slugged his 20th homer in the first inning. The Card Collum, the was StLouis property and then was traded back to Lane this spring for Brooks U5-3) Lawrence. He left in a iQur-run third •that produced a 6-4 Cincy lead. Jeffcoat, whom Paul got for excess catcher Hobie Landrith from the Cubs, relieved Joe Nuxhall in the third and would have had it wrapped up except for two unearned StLouis runs in the eighth. Freeman — whom Lane helped waive out of the AL while with the White Sox when Paul brought him from Boston — pitched just the 10th, and won his 10th. The Cubs had only five hits, but three were for extra bases — including home runs by Monte Irvin and Ernie Banks (No. 25) that built a 4-0 lead. The Braves, who chipped in seven walks, tied it with three in the seventh, two on Johnqy Logan's single. But relief- er Dave Jolly.then issued a walk, a double to Walt Moryn and a sacrifice fly to Pete Whisenant that broke it up. Jim Davis won it in relief. Gerry Coleman's two-run single capped a three-run fourth for the Yankees after two were out, and they added the winning marker in the fifth on Hank Bauer's double, a walk and Yogi Berra's single. A seven-run eighth inning nailed down Detroit's fourth-straight victory, with Ray Boone's bases- loaded triple the big blow against reliefers Art Houtteman and Bob Feller. Paul Foytack gained his first major league shutout with a five-hitter. Herb Score fanned 11 and gave just four hits, but trailed 2-0 when lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth.

Hospital officials said the three- IOUT operation rerouted the intestine around the obstruction. George Zaharias, the Babe's lusband, said she, had been growing progressively uncomfortable and readily consented to the operation. She had been progressing well after an operation three weeks ago which severed some sensory nerves and relieved the sain in her lower extremities, Zaharias said. The Babe was taken to a recovery room where she remained through the night under the supervision of a doctor. "It looks like I got tied for the tournament lead and have got to play it off," she said before she was wheeled to surgery. » Coast Group Meets Behind Closed Doors PORTLAND, Ore.

A total of 210,117 games was bowled in the 1956 American Bowling Congress tournament at Rocheester, N. Y. River Rlppla»» Roamin 9 the Piasa Country Harold Swam Ashore When the unexpected happens in boating the first reaction is for a person to get away from the water as quickly as possible and slay away. No exception was Carmen Breeden, 2221 College Ave., when his 12-foot speedboat capsized suddenly on Alton Lake near Clifton Terrace while running at high speed on a recent afternoon. Within a matter of seconds, Breeden's friends, Mel Senn, 3408 Leo Ave., and Otis Releford, 214V Virginia Ave., East Alton, in a nearby boat, came to the rescue, but Breeden didn't wait for them— he swam about 50 feet to shore. "I'm going to sell everything," was Breeden's first comment. Later, he changed his mind and decided that boating was a lot of fun after all. His friends had warned him previously that his boat was overpowered with a 30-horsepower outboard motor, and flipping over is a calculated risk for small boats with excessive power. Recalled Incident Breeden's boat was brought power outboard motors was operated by Byron Pool and Lon- nle J. Kirkpatrlck, both of Carmi, 111. The men left New Orleans Friday afternoon and made the run in 47 hours and 14 minutes but failed to lower the record of 41 hours and 57 minutes set recently on July 22. However, the time is the first to be set for the Marathon Association. The speedboat finished the last 122 miles at slow speed because one motor had been damaged by debris. Its a Small World A recent three-day vacation- fishing trip to Cass Lake, Minn., proved to be somewhat of a surprise to Francis Howell and his wife, Edith, 510 Eugene Ave. The couple went into a hardware store there and asked where the best fishing svas to be found. "The best place I ever heard of is a creek by the name of Piasa which runs into the Mississippi River somewhere near St. Louis," was the merchant's tonishing reply. Its a small world after all, the Howells believe. They went fishing anyway in nearby Cass Lake ashore by Senn and Releford. and caught quite a few walleyes The incident reminded Senn of j and other fish, an occasion two months ago when his outboard motor struck an un- taught Outfit* The channel catfish are strik- seen submerged object ?and was \ ing in the Illinois River, report- knocked into the water. The hanger brackets broke but the safety chain held the motor. "I was speeding along when all of a sudden my boat slowed down," Senn related. "I looked around and saw that my motor had disappeared.

Don't like it, then try this: Quarterback Jerry Reichow, Iowa; halfbacks Don Mcllhenny, Southern Methodist and Lenny Moore, Penn State; fullback Joe Childress, Auburni Or try any combination thereof. That's the kind of material Coach Curly Lambeau has at his disposal in shaping up the College All Stars for Friday night's classic 'football game against the Cleveand Browns, National Football League champs. Nonetheless, the Stars were 9'/fc point underdogs today along bookmaker's row and the points might ;o up to 12 or 13 by gametime. Reason: the All Stars don't figure to win because they're not as yet a team while the Browns are i powerful machine that;' battled ts way to a title in the rough-and- tough pro wars. That doesn't mean the Stars can't win or haven't won in the )ast. But it's a tough job to take 50 individuals and mold them into football team in a matter of weeks. There have been years when the Stars put together great efforts. They've won 7, lost 12 and tied 2 in the series which began in 1934. Last year was one of these efforts and the All Stars beat the Browns, 30-27. And twice before the collegians put together two Victories in a row* In 1937 a young man named Sammy Baugh of Texas Christian threw a touchdown pass to Gaynell Tinsley of Louisiana State for a 6-0 triumph over Green Bay. The following year Cecil Isbell of Purdue paced the All Stars to a 28-16 victory ' over Washington. Then came the drought until 1943 when the Stars beat Washington, 27-7. The turning point was a 97- yard pass interception by Otto Jraham ol Northwestern. Tossing the pass was Sammy Baugh. In 1946, a couple of guys named Elroy Hirsch and Pat Harder, both of Wisconsin, led a 16-0 triumph over Los Angeles and the next year Charlie Trippi of Georgia, Buddy Young of Illinois and George Ratterman of Notre Dame saw to it that the Chicago Bears received a 16-0 setback. In nearly every case of an All Star victory, the player, or players responsible -went on to professional fame, in many cases to fame that exceeded even their collegiate deeds. Maybe this year it'll be Morrall Cassady or Moore or Childress. if it might even be an "unknown" named Frank Pajaczkow- ski of Richmond or Herb Nakken of Utah. It might be—if the All Stars can win. Princess Choice In Hambletonian GOSHEN, N.

Gantz ; now has received credit for four of the five Bird victories, but he had to pitch his way out of trouble in the seventh inning. With the bases loaded and none out, Gantz allowed a run to score on a wild pitch, making the score 4-3. But then a strikeout, a pickoff of the runner at third and a grounder to third put the fire out. Francis homered for the winners. The Wildcats got 12 hits while holding Onized to two -safeties.

The best he could say about Cotton, veteran of 52 pro fights,'was "He's hardest to hit of any I fought." Bill Brown, International Boxing Club matchmaker, announced after the bout that Calhoun had been matched with Spider Webb of Chicago at Chicago Stadium Aug, 29.

Grammas, shortstop oi.the Redbirds In 1954-55, smacked a two- out 10th inning single past third to drive in Gus Bell with the run that gave the Cincinnati Redlegs a 7-6 victory Monday night. It was the fourth straight de- feht for the Cardinals who had won 8 of their first 10 on a 22- game road trip. Larry Jackson took the loss. Jackson fanned Wally Post and struck out Smoky Burgess after a double by Bell and an intentional pass to Ted Kluszewski started the inning. Bell led the Cincinnati attack with four hits, including a double and home run. Alvin Dark topped the Redbirds with three hits. Stan (The Man) Musial, durable Cardinals star, left the game early with a pulled leg muscle. Ho haafcjlayed 720 consecutive games and is shooting for the National League record of 822 by Gus Suhr. There is some doubt whether Musial will be able to play tonight.

Stengel Starts Rookie Terry As Yanks Win BOSTON Ufi — The New York Yankees, quietly confident of another pennant, were over another "long hill" today after snapping out of their worst slump in three years against the hot and cold Boston Red Sox. "It was a long hill and it's always good to get over a hill," Manager Casey Stengel said Monday night after the Yankees broke a six-game losing sti-eak with 8 4-3 victory over the Red Sox. Stengel gambled with Ralph Terry, a 20-year-old right-hander just called up from Denver in the American Assn., and the gamble paid off, thanks to fine relief pitching by veteran Tommy Byrne. _^ Terry, who attends Northeastern Oklahoma A&M college in the off season, hurled creditably in his major league debut, although he gave up seven hits and all three Boston runs in 5 2-3 innings. Tom Morgan took over in the sixth and ended the Boston uprising but then had to give way to Byrne, 35-year-old southpaw veteran, in the next inning when the Red Sox threatened with two out. Byrne retired the last seven batters in order to preserve Terry'« first American League victory. LongdenNears World Record Set By Briton DEL MAR, Calif.
