LITTLE SIIAXTZIE won his seventh game against a single defeat the other evening. Here are Mr. Povtch's comments as he constructed them in his column, "This Morning": The best stuff in the American League has been coming out of the pitching fist of the smallest guy in the league, the Athletics' Bobby Shantz. Had the As not booted away one game with four gift runs to the Yankees, the record of tiny Mr. Shantz would read eight wins, no defeats. Shantz says he's 5 feet 7 and weighs ISO pounds, but his manager, Jimmy Dykes, doesn't believe either figure. "I'll carry him from the hotel to the ball park if he weighs over 145," says - Dykes. 'He can walk under my armpits, and he wouldn't have to stoop much to walk under some of those strikes he throws, either. Shants has not only been making a mesa of the hitters ea the other club, he's been baffling the Athletics as welL They don't understand hew a little guy can be se many things. "lie s . the best pitcher an our club,' says Dykes, "he's the best In-flelder, he could be the best outfielder, and he's ne of our good ' hitters." Obviously, quite a packare. That it is suicide to bunt against Shantz, the whole league now knows. Of the hundreds who have attempted it, only two have gotten away with the maneuver in Shantz's four years in ' the league. Orestes Minoso beat one out on a wet field one day, and Ed Stewart was safe on a wild throw. THE KID Is a great pitcher," says Dykes, "because every? thing he throws is top secret. He shows you his fast fall, his good curve and lately that good knuckler, all with the same motion. The hitter has to do all the guessing. When we give him one run to work with, he's tough to beat. When we give him two, I always reckon we're home." It was last season that Shantz began to blossom. He won 18 pames for the A's more bv four than the total he achieved in the previous two years. "It wasn't until he realized how tough he was beginning to loox to those Hitters ma; noooy Decame a good pitcher," says Dykes. "He always did have that good control, and he began to put some stuff together with it." Until last year, Shants chief trouble was that he was giving the hitters toe much of the plate, relates Dykes. "The kid was kind of timid, and afraid the pitch Inside te some those big hitters he could get rid ef by laying It en their fists. Didn't want to hit anybody, he told me. I think I helped him get rid of some of his sqaeamishness. I told him I'd bay him a suit of clothes for every batter he did hit He's not only a good pitcher how, he's well-dressed, toe," The A's picked Shantz up in 1947, He cost them, as he says, a car token. They found him playing on the lots around Gratz, Pa., and a scout named Harry O'Donnell brought him in. Connie Mack took one look at Shantz' size nd another look at Scout O'Donnell and there was almost a jobless scout. There had to be some fast-talking before Shantz was admitted to the A's farm system. THEY SENT HIM out to Lincoln, Nebr., in the Western League, and out there the little southpaw was some shucks. He . acquired 18 wins, a wife, and an invitation to report to the A's. training camp in the spring of 1949. But he couldn't break into the Z A's staff, and one day in July Mr. Mack gave him papers to report to Buffalo in the International League. Shants never quite got to Buffalo. A eonple of Mack's . pitchers came down with the miseries, and his orders were coun- iermanded before the train pulled out. Bobby was told to report . to Detroit, where the A's were opening a series, and he Joined the club just in time to get a relief pitching Job that affected his whole career. Carl Scheib started that game in Detroit, and with a Tiger on third base and none out in the third inning, Mack ordered Shantz in from the bullpen. Little Bobby took the A's out of that inning without damage and then settled down to pitch a no-hitter for the tlPYt nfri inninffa hpfnrA ihm Ae ffbtv litm IhA-winninir vnn in' the thirteenth. AFTER THAT, Shantz had it made. They didn't trust him much besides relief work during the rest of 1949, but in the following year he was a starter, and looked increasingly tough despite a poor team behind him. This year he has been giving that curve ball to lefthanded hitters and his kncklers to right-handed hitters, and anytime he is licked it's an unset. If put on the market, Shantz would bring more than any other pitcher in the league, Dykes declares. Only once has little Bobby displayed any dissatisfaction with his luck. That was when he was asked if the A's scout who signed him proffered him a fancy bonus. "Yeah," said Shantz, "a great big handshake." tyiltlf lT O 1111 MurAJ -J M. J Your Hand at Beating Hogan Mr. "Golf For Fun" gets his supreme chance Saturday. It's then that he will get the chance to give the mightly mite of jnated the links, Texas Ben Hogan, his lumps. The occasion is National Golf Day when the battle cry will be "Beat Ben Hogan." Golfers across the nation, about 300,000 strong (an estimate which Record Catch At Maloney could be fantastically low), will play on their home courses with established or otherwise desie- handicaps against Hoean. who will be touring the North- wood course in Dallas. Tex. Nofthwood is the site of the forthcoming National Open. If any linksman'a score handicap considered beats Texas Ben he will receive an award carrying the not so modest notation "I Beat Ben Iloran."

Big Ed lirabesak was in trouble from the first frame until he was yanked in favored "Lefty Leo the Lion-hearted" Ghilardi with none awav in the fifth. Harry Desert followed Ghilardi to the peak at the start or tne next frame and Ozzie Van Bra bant was called upon to chuck the ninth. DES MOINES f lingers (there were four of 'em) were almost equally ineffective. George Long started but wasn't around after the fifth. His immediate successor, Harry Wise, failed to last the fifth and Bert Flammini came to the rescue.J2 ven Flam!L hadio- give way to Joe Kuncl when the A's threatened in the nintn. Des Moines won because of in-ferier Lincoln pitching, pounding out an even 16 base hits. Lei Bell's gang got a pair of tallies in the third after two were away.

That was all for Mr. Long but Harry Wise was nicked for sin gles by Mangini and Dan Holden to account for two more markers but Flammini came in and put out the fire. BILL HOCKENBIRY worked "Flam" for an Annie Oakley in the eighth and went all the way around to third on Shantz' single. He scored while Pinchhitter Ken Weiss was hitting into a double play. . The A's threatened briefly in the ninth when Reedy was punc tured in the nbs, going to third on Bill Ley's boot after Mangini had whiffed.

In that group, Oklahoma lads were best in seven events, tied for top macks in another and had three seconds in the 14 events that were comparable. But, Callfornlam were as superior to the Sooners aa the Oklahomana were te the rest of this territory. Only in the hurdles where the Sooners have a pair of the best prep timber toppers in the Oklahoma's country " were marks better. In an over-all comparison the' eight states, CaliforniaJs bcsl in nine of its 12 events, and tied for tops in another.

" But Leon Pat terson of Taft, Calif., threw the W-pound iron pellet half an inch farther in the far western state's meet. It was found the shot Niedcr used . was ; three - ounces over weight, which all good Kansans claim took more than half an inch off his mark. Nebraska marks generally were superior only to those of Kansas and Colorado at their championship meets. (Ail three atate meets were hindered by bad weather; Iowa was not Oklahoma, though It has a weather advantage, held Ita meet two weeks earlier than Nebraska, three earlier than lewa). In 14 events. Nebraska topped Colorado in eight and tied in an other. In 13 comparable events, Nebraska beat Kansas in seven and . tied in another. Nebraska marks bettered those of Missou rians only in four events, and tied another. All Illinois marks, and of course. all California's, were better than Nebraska s. Only the 22-1 broad jump ef forts by North Platte's Dennis Smith wu better than Iowa or Oklahoma winners, and it was only one-eighth of an inch over the Oklahoma mark.
