PAGE TWELVE ALfON TELEGRAPH FRIDAY, AUGUST IF, Burdette Gets Sixth Shutout Of Season Over Cardinals, 8-0 Nixon 2-Hits Yonks, 2-1; Indians Nip Tigers, 5-4 By ED WILKS The Associated Press Lew Burdette, with or without an illegal "spitter" stands a chance of becoming the National League best shutout pitcher in years while figuring as one of the big guys in Milwaukee's battle for the pennant. The 29-year-old right-hander, who had only seven shutouts in his five-year major league career before this season, added his sixth of the campaign with a neat five- hit, 8-0 victory Thursday night over the St. Louis Cardinals—who by the way, lead the claim that the stuff Burdette throws isn't always dry. "Criminy," says Card Manager Fred Hutchinson, "you can sit on the bench and see him load ' em -" With his six shutouts, Burdette —who denies the "spitter" charges — Is the first NL right-hander to throw that many in one season since the Phils' Robin Roberts did it to lead the league in 1951. The 10 Mort Cooper hung up for the Cards in 1942 hasn't been touched •ince, and no NL pitcher has counted seven shutouts in one year since Harry Brecheen, another Card, in 1948. Thursday night's Job gave Burdette 15 victories ajyi a league- leading earned run average of 2.53. The Cincinnati' Redlegs slipped to thin) place with a 4-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs that allowed Brooklyn to regain second place with a 13-inning 10-9 victpry over the New York Giants. Pittsburgh made it two in a row over Philadelphia, 4-1. In the American, Boston's Willard Nixon, riding a no-hitter for seven innings, two-hit the New York Yankees for a 2-1 decision. That trimmed the Yanks' lead to 9'/i games as runner-up Cleveland beat Detroit 5-4. Chicago's White Sox defeated Kansas City 6-5 in the only other game scheduled. Three of the hits off Burdette, who didn't walk a man, were by Stan Musial — one a double that gave The Man the NL extra-bases- hit record with 1,072, one more than Mel Ott managed in 22 seasons. The Braves iced it with five runs in the first inning to beat Wilmer Mizell. Duke Snider's 33rd home run — his first off a southpaw this season — broke up a 4-hour, 48-minute battle for- the Dodgers. It came on a'M pitch by Lefty Dick Uttle- field, sixth Giant pitcher. Hank Thompson and Willie Mays each had three-run homers. Thompson's pinch-bit swing tied it in the sixth. Don Drysdale, 10th hurler used in the 33-hit game, was the winner. Sam Jones fanned 13, high for one game in the NL this season, while knocking off the Redlegs on a seven-hitter. Solly Drake's second RBI double broke a 2-all tie in the seventh. Two-run homers by Bill Virdon and Bill Mazeroski won for the Pirates and Vernon Law, who tossed a six-hitter. Robin Roberts lost it. Yogi Berra's eighth-inning single broke up Nixon's no-hit bid, and the veteran right-hander then hung on for his third victory over the Yankees this season as they scored on two errors and a pinch single by Mickey McDermott in the ninth. Jackie Jensens' 16th homer put it away for the Red Sox, who got just four hits off loser Don Larsen. Rocky Colavito smacked his first major league grand-slammer and Al Rosen poled a solo shot to beat the Tigers for Herb Score's 13th victory. Minnie Minoso's seventh-inning Onized Wins Industrial League Title Onized captured the Industrial League championship with a 5-2 victory over Shell in the second and last playoff game at the Shell diamond Thursday night. Onized earlier won the first game of the best-two-of-three series. Hosford homered for the winners, and Kusmanoff for the losers. Crotchett and Garner opposed each other on the mound, each giving up four hits and striking out five. Winning pitcher Crotchett walked two and Garner issued one base on balls.

Enunett Nowtan, 3315 Bad ley Ave., and Virgil Bowman Jr. 212 Lampert St, landed 10 keeper- size catfish last Saturday afternoon off Bird's Hollow a short distance upstream from the mouth of Piasa Creek. Another 20 catfish were landed Saturday morning by Sylvester Scovcll, and bin son, 609 E. Fifth St., Saturday morning at the head of Eagle's Nest Island. On Sunday morning Charlei Georges, his son, Charles, 606 Summit Ave., and his stepfather, David Casper of St. Louis, landed 12 catfish near Slim Island. Nearby, Lloyd Boesewetter, 612 Summit Ave., and this writer landed four catfish and a white perch. Landed Large Fish Wednesday afternoon, George Ingles, 3104 Forest Dr., landed a 47-pound catfish in the Mississippi River downstream from Alton Locks and Dam. Ingles took the fish to Upper Alton to have il weighed and to show numerous wishful anglers Bait Stealerg Young Jim Millspaugh, 11, accompanied his father, Harold, 1001 Danforth Ave., to a lake near Brighton last week and landed three fish during a pleasant six- hour outing. Jim spent most of his time rebaiting h As because the elusive fish kept stealing the bait. Numerous Valleye* Landed "We spent two weeks at the mosl wonderful fishing resort we ever found in 10 years," related Mr*. Melviu Conner, who with her husband 2'21 W. Haller Dr., East Alton, returned frt .1 Jone's Resort, on Lake of the Woods near Baudette, Minn., "Tuesday. "The fishing was simply out of tins world." The Conners found that it was easy to get the limit of six walleyes daily and, although they averaged three to five pounds, Mel vin brought back intact a seven and a 12-pound walleye to show friends. The couple used minnows for bait. They brought back another 15 pounds of frozen walleyes also. Conner landed his largest walleye on a fishing launch 20 miles offshore. The largest fish caught on that trip exceeded his by only one powid. Teirperatures averaged 72 degrees in the daytime and 50 de- at Comfortable Cabin In contrast to the cool weather there, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Reeder and grandson, David Wilson, H, 3607 Berkeley Ave., returned home last week from a 10-day vacation at Washburn's Point, on the Lake of the Ozarks, near Gravois .Mills, Mo., where the temperatures soared way above average. "It was even too hot to fish dur- ng the day," related Reeder, who found that their air-conditioned cabin was most conducive to nap- ?ing. "Yet we averaged two big [ish a day bait casting and David was thrilled to catch his first two big bass casting a lure." While there, Reeder's daughter and son-in-law and family, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Clayton and children, Renee and Jeffrey, Jefferson avenue, visited with them for live days. Clayton landed quite a few fish also but the group enjoyed swimming and boat riding most often. Living Souvenir A newly hatched alligator was Drought home from Clearwater, Fla., by Paul Duconiimin Jr., 12, who had recently spent two weeks' vapation there with his brother, foinniy, 8, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Duconimun Sr., 1634 Jersey St. The alligator has grown somewhat and also has nipped young Paul a few tunes. Ducommun Sr's brother and 'amUy, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Oucommun, and daughter, Crystal, I, Godfrey, also accompanied them to Clearwater where they spent much time fishing, crab hunting and paddle board riding. Young Paul Jr. is proud to have landed some pin fish, while Tommy was tlirilled to have landed a grunter.

MILWAUKEE W — Ed Furgol and Jackie Burke shared the lead with 7-under par 63s today as the $35,000 Milwaukee Open Golf Tour nament entered the second round but they were by no means alone in the sub-par echelon. Forty pros and two amateurs solved Tripoli's 6,380-yard par 35-35-70 setup with below-par gol Thursday. Indications wefe that with par-busting rounds a dime dozen, it might take a 265 or better to win the big money for 72 holes Furgol, 37-year-old St. Louis pro whose left arm is 10 inches shorter than his right because of a childhood accident, and the 33-year-old Burke, Masters and PGA champion from Kiamesha Lake, N.Y., fired identical 31-32 rounds to establish a new course record. Bracketed with 64s—equaling the old course standard — were Jim Turnesa of Spring Valley, N.Y., and Gene Littler o| Singing H^lls, Calif. Babe Lichardus, young pro from Hillside, N.J., was alone at 65, thanks to a nine-putt front nine. Shooting 66s were Dow Finsterwald of Bedford Heights, Ohio, and Al Balding, Canadian pro. Twelve more pros were locked at 67, 10 pros and two amateurs carded 68s and 13 additional money players turned in scores of 69. Dr. Cary Middlecoff of Memphis, 1956 U.S. Open champion, who won last year's Milwaukee Open with a 15-under-par 265 at Blue Mound, was in the pack with a 67. Grid Practice Set Aug. 27 At i^arroiitoii CARROLLTON — Opening day of football practice at the Carrollton Community Unit High School will be Monday Aug. 27.

Uncle Sam a pretty good idea of he talent he can count on for next all's Olympic Games at Mel- murne. Mrs. Frances Kaszubski, chairman of the Women's Olympic ["rack 'and Field Committee, predicts that this year's women's track team will make the best Olympic showing in 24 yearij? America has won only one field event since 1932 and one individual track title since 1936 in international games. Alice Coachman won the high jump in 1948, and Helen Stephens the 100-meter dash at Berlin in 1936. When the women take over, eleven defending champions will ilace titles in competition. They nclude Karen Anderson, Lansdowne, Pa., Pan-American javelin queen; last year's only double winner, Mae Faggs, Tennessee State University sprint star; Nancy Phillips, New York broad jump champion; Wanda Wejzgrowicz, St.Louis, national 'shotput queen; sabel Daniels, Tennessee State, 50-meter dash titlist, and Mildred McDaniel, high jump champion.

The annual match was played Thursday at Lockhaven Country club, where 40 golfers teed off. Some started in a little shower of rain, but the rest of the afternoon was as pretty as they come. Facilities of 'the club were at the disposal of the golfers after the gfjmes, and full advantage was taken of the pool and the lounge. Low medal was won by Gene Sawyer of Kiwanis with an 80, and low net of 72 by O. W. Maguire of Kiwanis. High scorer was Richard Stewart of Exchange who totaled 139 strokes for the 18 holes, and runner-up was Bill Flippo of Ki- jwanis with 122. First Swimmer Crosses Strait At Washington VICTORIA, B. C. Ot — Cliff Lumsdon of Toronto early today became the first person to swim the Juan De Fuca Strait from Victoria to the Washington shore when he stroke his way across the 18.3 miles in about 11 hours and 35 minutes. He finished the gruelling swim in inky blackness, with a bonfire on shore guiding him to Green Point. The strait, labelled by distance simmers as one of the most treacherous and unpredictable challenges known, was unusually calm and placid throughout Lumsdon's swim. Nixon Enjoys More Sureness Against Yanks TflEW YORK W-Willard Nixon, the tall Southern gentleman who regards the Yankees as his "lovin 1 cousins," can't explain his mastery over the American League leaders. All he knows is he just loves to pitch against them. "I don't pitch any differently against the Yankees than I do against other clubs," the Boston righthander said after humbling them for the third time this year with a two-hit 2-1 triumph. "It's just that somehow I've got more confidence against those guys. It's not that I have a low regard for the Yankees. I know how tough they are. I just seem to do better against them, that's all." The 28-year-old Georgian held the Yankees hitless until Yogi Berra singled to open the eighth. Back on May 29, he went 7 2-3 hitless innings against the Yankees before they broke through on Billy Martin's three-bagger.

LOUIS W-Fay Crocker, who makes it a habit to finish in the money, holds a three-stroke lead today as a field of 20 pros moves into the second round of the $5,000 Norwood Hills Women's Invitational Golf Tourney. The Montevideo, Uruguay, swinger took part in all the women's tournaments last year and finished in the money every time. She toured the hilly, 6,019-yard Norwood Country Club course in 69—five under par—Thursday in the opening round of the four-day tourney.

Austria -proposes to drop sales taxes on goods delivered to its free ports of Linz and Innsbruk. ST. LOUIS m— Stan Musial wa» relaxing in the dressing room when a sportswriter handed him an all-time National League record sheet which showed him high in almost every department. "Get that thing outa here," said Hank Sauer, roommate of the St. Louis Cardinals' $80,000-a-year man. "If he sees himself close to some new record, it'll take him nine years to reach it." Musial, 35-year-old first baseman-outfielder, had just set a ne\v National League mark for extra base hits. His 1,072nd was a scorching liner off the right field screen in the seventh inning Thursday night. He'd been chasing the record since last Sunday, when he tied it. The record was just one of many Stan holds, but it's one of the more significant. Mel Ott of :he New York Giants needed 2,730 games and 22 seasons to set :he old one. Musial, now in his 14th_sea$oa, beat it in 2,102 games. Musial accepted the^ congratulations of his teammates. No on* was happy. The Cardinals had aken a 8-0 licking from Lew Burdette and the Milwaukee Braves. "This record is nice to have but my chief goal this season is the batting title," Musial said. His :hree hits Thursday night boosted his average to .316. He's in third )lace, 11 points behindjeammata Wally Moon and 23 behind Milwaukee's Hank Aaron. Musial already has six Ieagu« mtting crowns and a seventh vould tie Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby. Honus Wagner lead* with eight. Stan said his No. 1 goal is 3,000 lits, a total reached by only seven players in baseball history. He needs 226 more. You get an idea of his stature rom his first place standing in •slugging percentage (.583). That puts him ahead of such men as Horasby, John Mize, Chuck Klein. lack Wilson, Ott and Ralph finer.
