Still, the fifth-place Cubs haven't been pushovers for the powerful Flatbushers. After winning the Chicago series concluded Friday, two games to one, the Cubs had won seven contests from Brooklyn and had lost 11. . The Dodgers have lost only 12 times in 44 games against western rivals on the road and the Cubs in Wrigley Field have accounted for exactly half of the dozen losses. The 4-1 Cub triumph Friday was the Chicagoans ninth in a less- than-satisfactory 22-gaine home stand. Warren Hacker limited the Brooks to Roy Campanella's home run and three, other, harmless safeties. The Cubs routed Preacher Roe in an 11-hit assault that saw Hank Sauer drive in two scores and raise his season's RBI total to 114. The CXibs are the only team that holds a decision over Roe this season. He has won 10 and lost two — both to the Cubs. The Cubs moved out of Wrigley Field today for a night game at Cincinnati with the Reds. Bob Schultz 4-2 was manager Phil Cavarretta's mound choice to oppose Ken Raffensberger 14-11. 'The Chicago White Sox, after two days of idleness, were at home in a night game with Cleveland. Hector Brown 1-3 was given the pitching assignment against Bob Feller 9-12.

(NEA) Shantz Gets Three Threatening Notes In Philadelphia By Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Athletics- Bobby Shantz, leading pitcher in the American League, saj 'S he has received three threatening notes warning him not to appear on the field when the A's play in Boston next weekend. Shantz said Friday night all the letters were postmarked Cambridge. Mass. He said he threw away two but kept the third, typewritten on white paper. It was signed "A Guy." Addressed "to My Dear Friend Mr. Shantz," it said: "Right here and now I want this to sink into your little head, when you return here in Boston you better not appear on the field called Fenway Park. "If you do I'll be meeting you after that game. Also if you mention this to the cops or anyone for the Athletics, I'll do more to your baseball life than you can expect. Remember, Little Boy." Shantz and Manager Jimmy Dykes, regard the letters as the work of a crank. The little pitcher said he is willing and anxious to hurl in Boston. "After all," he said, "I don't make much of a target out there on the mound." Bobby's pitching record of 22 wins and four losses is the best in the majors this year. Boston police have been notified and U. S. Postal authorities wall be asked to investigate the note. Ralph Kiner, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder, recently received two notes, one of them demanding $6,200 upon threat of his life.

Robert Jones III Plays in Tourney In Connecticut By Associated Press WETHERSFIELD, Conn. — The announcer blared the names of golf's top stars Boros, Tur- nesa, Palmer, etc. etc. And then — he boomed: "Robert Tyre Jones, the Third." The 4,000 spectators halted in their tracks and watched quietly as a strapping, 190-pound, tall lad stepped to the tee and sent a whistling drive far down the fairway. The applause caused the modest son of the famed Bobby Jones to turn crimson. It was a tremendous tribute to one of golf's greatest names, and was among the highlights of the opening round Friday on the four- day, 72-hole first annual S15,000 Insurance City open golf tournament. Young Jones is strictly a weekend golfer, and his three over par 74 wasn't bad. He manages a soft- drink concern at Pittsfield, Mass. New England's richest golf tourney headed for the halfway mark today with Skee Riegel of Tulsa, Okla., and Art Wall Jr. of Honesdale, Pa., setting the pace with sizzling five-under-par 66s, which equalled the course record. Julius Boros posted a one-under par 70. Grabowski Hurls No Hit Victory /nJV/s. League By Associated Press APPLETON, Wis. — Rookie Dick Grabowski, who brok# into the Class D Wisconsin State League because there was room on the bus from the training camp, tossed a no-hit no-run game Friday night. Grabowski's 2-0 victory over Oshkosh was his 20th for Apple ton against seven defeats. He allowed only three walks and struck out seven men to bring his strike out total* for the year ta 180—eight below the all-time loop record. This spring at the Boston Braves training camp, Grabowski was sick during most of his stay and tossed only six innings. Braves officials felt this wasn't enough and told Appleton Manager Travis Jackson^ to give the righthander from Norwich, Conn., a "chance." Jackson said he brought Grabowski to Appleton because he "had plenty of room on the bus." COLD SOFT DRINKS! And If They Are Frostie, They Are the Best!

L STRETCH DRIVE By RALPH RODEN AP Sports Writer The New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians, separated by only one game in the rugged American League pennant race, were casting a wary eye over their foes, Jimmy Dykes' hiladelphia Athletics. Dykes' darlings, like the St. Louis Cardinals of another era, are up to their usual late season shenanigans. In the past the A's got hot too late but this time they have a chance to go all tlie way in the stretch run. Friday, as' Cleveland reduced the Yanks' lead to one game by beating Detroit, 4-2, while the Yanks bowed, 3-2, to Washington, the A's swept a twi-night doubleheader from the third place Boston Red Sox. 6-1 and 7-5. The sweep moved the Athletics to within IVa games of tlie fading Red Sox and to within six of the Yanks. Six games at this stage of the race is not too big an obstacle to overcome especially when you have a pitcher like Bobby Shantz. Shantz, the major's top winner, is not the only ace Dykos has. Harry Byrd and Cart Scheib are lending a helping hand on the mound while Ferris Fain, Gus Zcrnial and Eddie Joost are sparking the attack. Fain leads. the league in batting with a .337 mark while Zernial is third in the home run derby with 26, only one behind the co-leaders, Yogi Berra . of the Yanks and Larry Doby of Cleveland. Zernial also shows the way in runs batted in with 91. The A's have 28 games left to play including nine with the Yanks and three with Cleveland. They have nine games remaining at home and 19 on the road. Scheib, who won only one game and lost 12 last year, turned in his 10th victory for the A's in the first game. He permitted only seven hits. ' The A's pulled the nightcap out with a three-run rally in the eighth inning. Bob Lemon turned in his 17th victory for the Indians in beating Virgil Double No-Hit Trucks at Detroit. Lemon granted six hits in posting his ninth triumph in his last 10 decisions. The Indians led 2-1 until the sixth inning when Luke Easter iced the decision with a two-run homer, his 23rd. Home runs by Gil Coan and Jim Busby ruined the Yankees, Coan whacked his third of the season in the eighth inning to tie the score at 1-1 and Busby banged his first of the year in the ninth with Floyd Baker aboard to win the game. The Chicago Cubs defeated the pace-setting Bi-ooklyn Dodgers 41 in the only National League game. Warren Hacker checked the Dodgers on four hits including Roy Campanella's 20th homer in the seventh.
