•AGE EIGHT BLITHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW* Reds are Rough on Brooks With 21 Wins in 29 Games Shades of 1914. Can Luke Sewcll perform a mii-nclo at Cincinnati? You have to stretch a point to ail! scventh-plncc Cincinnati, ll'/s! games mil of first, a pennant factor. But you can tip your hat lo Sewell for the Uc<! revival. The man who led the St. Louis Browns to their only pennant, doesn't ijiiit. Last by 17 lengths June 24, the* rRTDAY, JtTLY M, MM R«ds may not qualify as the 1950 mfracle team but they sure are the Dodger-fciUers. If Branch Rickey muffs the pennant, he can blame Cincy, The sizzling Reds polished off the Ambitious Brtxiks last night in both ends of a twilight-night doubleheader, 3-1 and 6-2. That made ft eight out- of 11 over fclie Dodgers this season and 19 wins In their last 25 starts. Or, If you prefer, 21 of 29. Kenny ftaffcnsberger's cunning control stuff silenced the Brooks in the opener despite Don Ncwcombe's five-hitter. Then Ewrell (The Whip) Blackwell {truck out nine in a sterling night performance. Neither Cincy pitcher walked a man, Ted Kluszcwski was the big man of the first game. Kis first-inning single drove in one of two Cincy runs and his 17th homer in the sixth added the lost. Blackwrll Besls Van Cu.vk BJackwell bested young ClirU Van Cuyk, a sensational winner in his' only previous big league start. Can Cuyk left with the score tied, 2-2, and two men on in the seventh. Joe Landrum walked the bases full. Then Landrum took Bobby Usher's roller and threw Lo ca Lcher Bruce Edwards, who let the ball get past him for a two-run error. Joe Adcock singled home the other two. As a result, the Dodgers arc three full games back of St. Louis, ami Cincy is only a half-game back of the sixth place New York Giants. While Cincinnati lowered the boom on Brooklyn, the New York Giants bounced back to smother St. Louis. 13-3. The loss didn't cost the Cardinals the lead but narrowed their advantage, over Boston and Philadelphia to a single game. The rained-out Braves didn't have a chance to gntn and the Phillies missed their opportunity, bow- Ing to Pittsburgh, 10-8, In a slugfest that lasted almost three hours. Ted Beard, Gas Bell and Danny O'Conncll each had three hits In the 16-htt attack. Despite homers by Dick Staler, Granny Hamner and Del En run, Pittsburgh /struggled home to win Jor reliefer Murry Dickson. Ralph Klner's 27th homer off Hms Meyer in the eighth heJped nail it down. Leo Durocher'.s Giants really got revenge for the 18-4 and 10-3 boat- ings of Wednesday a.s they piled it up a gainst' the Cardinals with an right-run third inning. Dave Koslo a non-winner since June 28, copped his ninth with a nine-hitter. Five double plays and 16 Giant hits, including three by Don Mueller, made it easy. Tlgerg Los« 6-3 Everybody closed In on the De trolt Tigers yesterday when they lost to Boston. 6-5, in II innings Tile runnerup New York Yankees, not scheduled to piny, gained half game.

Conference Prexys Approve 'Rough Football' Rule Changes MACKINAC ISLAND. Mich., July* 21. W>|—College athletic commissioners declared today than changes in football rules to cut out the rough stuff will be enforced to the letter. Tbe commissioners, representing 12 conferences across the nation, gave enthusiastic approval to changes making it a foul for players to rough up opponents with elbows and forearms. The changes were made last January by the National Football Rules Committee of the NCAA. Dick Romncy of Salt Lake City, Utah, representing the Mountain States Conference, said the revisions reflect wishes of "he-man football coaches lo take the miick- erism out of football. Ftomney said the rules requiring more careful use of the hunds and arms would keep players from knocking out teeth nnd bruising adam's apples. A study oC motion pictures of games, he said, showed that numerous inruiries last season were caused by unnecessary rough stuff. Romney cited these changes as particularly vital to play: (1) On offensive blocking, the teammate of a runner must keep his hands and arms below the shoulders of nn opponent during the entire block. (2) On defensive holding when the hand or arm is used by the opponent of a runner, he hand must be in advance of the elbow: that is, first contact must be made with the hand. The commissioners also studied recommendations to be made to the council of the NCAA on possible revisions of the Sanity Code. The council will meet nclx month to consider possible amendments.

(/!>)— Glenn Davis, a modest young inai who gained considerable renown as football player with West poin a few years ngo, is quite busy these hot, days laboring to win stead] employment In nrolcssional foot ball with the Los Angeles Rams. Good looking alena will deny it hut he happens to be the shiniest looking rookie haltbnck in tlie Ram training camp here. And if he can approach the spcec alld. elusive wizardry he dlsplnycc ortjt.hosc great Army teams of 1914- 45^t6; a gentleman named Josepl (Jumbo) Stydahnr, the head simp herd oi ihc flams, will be much relieved. Davis, after a three-yea: hitch in the Army, may understandably bo a little rusty In some ol the finesse he knew. It Is too earlj In tell just yet, because tlie Rarr training schedule hnsn't renchci the serious combat phase. Hli6 Davis has been undergoing a little rcpolishlng since the Ram. started running signal drills. Assist ant Coach Hrimp Poolc, for In stance, noted' that Glenn was tele graphing his direction by Iranini just before taking off with the ball Glenn won't be leaning -anymor —unless Stydahnr has him Icat one way nnd sends another back the other way. Dnvis said there haven't been toi many problems inrolvcd in learn ing the Hum plays. "Different set. of signals, but It's still the T formation," he explained.

WV Selective service—as it stands at present^— isn't likely to dig deeply into the University of Arkansas' 1950 football squad. Most or Coach Douglas' Razorbacks fall into three classifications not yet bciiis; drafted. They fire: (1) Veterans of World War Two; (2) Advanced students in the Reserve Officers Training Corps; (3) 17 and , 18-year-olds. In the first group, the veterans are 10 men. These players, who have seen military service already are ends Frank Pischel. Norman Price and Jack Richards; tackle George Eckcrt; Buddy Brown and George Milan at guards, and backs Sammy Fiiro, Rcss Prltchard, Ray Parks nnd Buddy Rogers. In the second group, advanced R. O. T. c. students arc lo players. There are, however, other players in basic R. O. T. C. (the first two years), who. if considered good enough for the advanced in the future, could also be exempt The decision would rest upon the com- 'manding officers of the Air Force and Army at the University. The third group, the 17 nnd 18- year-olds, includes only six players. They are tncfeie Hershel Jones; guards Joe Love and Bobby Linebarier; and backs Lewis Carpenter, Joe Balrtridge and Larry Hogue. The H Porkers in basic. R.O.T.C. are a <|itestion-niark In the face of tlie world situation as it remans today. As n matter of interest, the Porker coaching staff itself might find the war picture, a little closer to their own doors. Douglas, George Cole. Dick Humbert and Johnny Morriss are all Naval reserve officers; while Charles Hanks is in the Coast Guard reserve, nnd Charles Gray, the Marine reserves. By The Associated Press The Birmingham Darons are having their turn finding out the Little Rock Travelers of July aren't the Little Rock Travelers of April and May. The lesson was drilled home last night with a 7-6 defeat by the Southern Association's eighth place Travs. Five other Southern teams already have learned their lessons well and each shows scars for the effort. In games this month Little Rock has whipped Memphis twice and lost once; whipped Chattanooga three times and lost once; won three and lost two to Nashville; won two and lost one to New Orleans, and split with Mobile, one victory and one defeat. Little Hock's II victories and seven defeats in July make the last placers in season play the second best in the leafsue tin's month. Only Birmingham's n victories and six defeats top tile team by the same name which lost 21 straight games just after the season began. Since that record breaking string of defeats the Travs have been almost completely rebuilt. Crackers Lose How does (lie rest of the league stack behind Birmingham and Little Rock in games tills month? Here they arc and there are some surprises in the standing: Nashville, 12 victories nine defeats; Atlanta, 10-3; Mobile 9-9; New Orleans 1-10: Memphis, 6-11. and Chattanooga 7-13. Little Rock won in the 10th Inning when Ployd Fogg singled, advanced on an error and scored on a single by Duke Doolittle. First place Atlanta failed to Improve its three and a half game lead. By losing a weird 10-5 game to Memphis. Memphis made six errors, tour of them in the first inning, and still Atlanta couldn't win. Memphis Ed McGhce made one of the great catches of the season.

But all indications at present ar« that tourney oficials can expect little cooperation from the weatherman. Rain, for the second consecutive night, .washed out play In th« tournament last night and hut night's final second-round game and one semi-final contest have been re-sclieduled for tonight. Manila was scheduled to meet the Number Nine Cardinals in last night's first game, which was to have been tlie final second round game. The winner of this game was to have played Armorel for. the right to meet Stanford in the finals of the tournament. Same Schedule Set That same schedule will prevail tonight, if the cloudy skies will permit. The Manila-Number Nine game Is set for 6 o'clock with the winner playing the Tigers of Armorel at 8. Stanford advanced Into the finals of the tournament by edging past Light 9-G between showers Wednesday night. The game was called in the top half of the seventh Inning on account of rain. The district tournament has ^bi pretty much of a problem cWd ever since it was dreamed up this spring After enough teams were lined up to make a good bracket the tournament played two week.s ago was thrown into a hub-bub In the championship gsme when Luxora was disqualified for the use of an im-registered player after beating Manila 2-1 for the title. Then a re-play was ordered by Tipton to decide what teams were to get the prize money and the Coca Cola Bottling Company's trophy but rain hns all but wrecked the second meet. Winner of the tournament will be the oflcial representative of District Three in Ihe semi-pro tournament next month. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, III.. July 21.

National Junior Golf Tournament In Fourth Round DENVER, July 21. fAP), —No expert could put the finger on a favorite or an underdog today as 18 of golf's toughest teen-age competitors came out for the fourth round of match play in the National Junior Golf Tournament. Any one of these boys, the s^fc- vivors of a starting field of 128 ft™ all sections of the country, could pull through to the championship. Scores began to climb in yesterday's third round as the boys showed the wearing effects of three 18- hole matches in two days. But the grind was less than half over. Two more rounds were scheduled today and the semifinals and finals tomorrow. The youngster who came the nearest to being a clear-cut favorite, John Brown of Lexington, Ky., met disaster yesterday in the iorm of Joseph "Jim" Ginsberg, a 16-year old bantam belter from Phila'del- phia. Ginsberg showed little respect for Brown's par-shattering repuatlon of the earlier rounds as he administered a 5-4 thrashing with one of the neatest approach and pultinj exhibitions of the tournament.
