Eight Hits To Trim 'White Sox, 10 to 2 By United Press The world champion New k York Yankees have taxen a firmer hold on tlie first place In the American League. They trounced 'he Chicago White Sox 10 to 2 and moved two games ahead of the St. Louis Browns. It looked like -the old days in (he Yankee Stadium M .the New yorkers bundled eight hits for JO runs. They scored three runs in: the fourth frame nnd put the gome on Ice with five more in thc seventh. Walt Dubiel. with Yankee power behind him, won his second game ojf the season. 'The Philadelphia Athletics staged s spine-tinellng last minute uprising to wallop the Detroit Tigers 6 to 2. The score stood at 2-2 going into the last half of the ninth. The bases'. were loaded with two out. Then Frankle Hayes, who won Sunday's game with n homer, stepped Into the batter's box. Bob Gillcsple served up the .gopher ball, and Hayes lilt a round-tripper into the stands, good for four runs. The Washington Senators came up from behind to ease out the Cleveland Indians 4 to 3 in an overtime game under arc lights, The Indians led 3 to 1 in the ninth, .when the Senators' Puerto pfcan catcher, Permin Giierrn. blnsl- ed n homo-run with one aboard- tying the score. In thc llth inning. t)ic Senators scored again to take the game. Johnny Nlggeling, who went the route for Washington, allowed 10 lilts. Ed Klicman, who relieved Mel Harder in the ninth, was the loser. Cincinnati's southpaw pitcher Clyde Slioun, the guy who was supposed to be through in 1942, hurled the Reds to n no-run, no-hit victory over Jim Tobln and the Boston Braves. Shmm defeated Jim Tobin, who turned the no-hit trick on April 27, 1 to 0. Tobin..spoiled a perfect, game by taking n base on balls In the third. Chuck Aleno made the only run of the game with a homer off one of.Tobln's flutter balk In Ihc fifth. The Brooklyn- Dodgers turned In a fair imitation of Yankee power yesterday, ns they slnimncd four Chicago hurlers for 17 tills nnd 14 runs. , The Brooks clinched Hall Gregg's 14-to 3 victory when they tallied seven runs in the sixth inning.

Not only did Annorel attract Us quota of fishermen, but lakes and streams nil over this section suddenly became unsafe for the dark green bass.

It is complimentary when one takes enough time to write in nnd offer a suggestion . . . One of the and most highly appreciated suggestions came weekend from Pfc, Orval Shancy- fclt, former Chick linesman, who Is stationed at the United Slalcs Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point, N. C. (V. M. B. 613, M, A. G. 62—P. M. P.). Pfc.

Thanks. Orval. that is a rather llmely suggestion and I .slarleil the practice with your letter, hop- Ing your friends ivlll pin it to good use by writing. Orvnl never became any loo well known to- thc Blylhcvlllc random for thc rdnraii of two guys, viz.: Adolph Schlcklcgruber and Hlrahilo. Just when he appeared on the brink of becoming a crack guard under the capable and painstaking direction of Coach Joe Dilcly (now Lieut. Dildy, Crldcr Field, fine Bluff), thc war came upon us and Ihc 195-pound handsome youth took off In Die footsteps of an older brother, Vlr- gle, also in thc Marines and overseas ... He definitely was one of the better grid prospects. His letter follows: "It seems ns if I am thc only one of the fellows from Blylhcvlllc stationed In Hits part of the States.

I have read several nice letters you have printed from ex-Blytho- vllle men from all parts of the country. May I suggest that yen have their addresses printed when you receive letters that way. so the fellows can keep In touch with each other.

DON'T WASTS A DROP/ car avoid 6f&z6dotvn<$ Welch, Belkas Win Tag Match Wisbar and Szabo On Losing End In Wild Show At Arena Here Sergt. Chris' Belkas and Roy Welch outlasted a us Wisbar and Joe Szabo to capture the feature tag match of Promoter Mike Meroney's weekly wrestling show last night at the American Legion nrcna. After dropping the first fall, fielkns anu Weld) haimnered out thc second and third falls In another superlative action thriller and chiller that ran the gamut. The fans were treated not only to one of the roughest and most bitter battles c ver staged In thc local ring, but came In for some cx- tni sights. Included in Die wacky category were: Two free-for-all battles, one inside the ring and the other outside and !ii the isles, at (lie conclusion of a fall; Partners swapping blows In live- fashion, instead of applying Hielr energy toward thc defeat of their opponents; Three men—two wrestlers and thc referee—lying prone on Ihc mat it as cold as a snlt mackeral; A wrestler nil tangled in the ipes and the referee trying vainly to get him untwisted and nl the ime time keep the opponent off lin and the ropes; Countless times when all four, 'l"s the referee, wen' In n stage of milling that strongly resembled a jattlc royal. Instead of wrestling. Battle Each Other As funny and exciting ns most vere, the most amusing sight ciimo vlien Wislrar nnd s/abo. on thc ;amc side, began fighting each other. It all stnrtcd early in the third fall. Belkns had subjected vvtsbnr to some knocking from Welch when in the throes or a full Nelson, in retaliation, Gus turned tables, secured a full Nekon on Clirls and marched him over to Ins corner* where Szabo had ills right arm poised for a haymaker As they cnmc close enough Szabo ft his fist fly. But Chris ducked intl Wisbar caught the full impact of the punch smack on the chin, was floored and all but knocked out. He immediately rushed ».abo an t | clipped him with rights mil left.' Joe moved Into the ring md thc two went at it hammer md tong for several seconds before Referee Mcroney could pry them apart. Belkns and Welch had slipped out of the ring and stood on thc outside enjoying the unusual •spectacle. Uses New Hold Szabo, a rough ami tough mcanie introduced a hold seldom used to TUKSDAY, MAY lij, ill gain an advantage in thc Ing match. He forced Hoy to surrender after 15 minutes of torrid milling with a reverse face lock. Five minutes later Joe applied the same dose to Belkas with the same results. Roy and Belkns altered their lac- tics slightly and paved thc way to even the count at one fall apiece. Instead of sticking to the scientific as they did in the first, they bcuan matching their fists and body with their opponents. In addition, Roy opened an assault on Wiibar's ears, (Gus has n horror of caullflowered cars). Actually, the fall was decided when- Chris and Roy staged a "Cnsey Jones Spc- cinl", bumping the heads of Wisbar and Suibo headon. Chris eliminated Wisbar only a few minutes Inter with a iKXly slam and pin In JO minutes. S/abq was mauled considerably before going under wlUi a body slam and pin by Bclkas In 10 more minutes. Ajlack The Winners As the winners were leaving the ring to go to the dressing room Szabo charged them and a free- for-all battle ensued. Apparently, all had died down after Szabo had been kicked out of thc ring and Wisbar heaved overboard by Welch. Hut Szabo intercepted Belkas at the southwest corner and the two locked horn-s again, this time in the isles.. Welch and Wisbar continued their fight inside the ring. The TNT-Iaden fists of Belkas and Welch proved too powerful in the final fall. Swibo was the first to fall by thc wayside. Welch battered him all but into slumbcrland, then turned him over for a jackknife to make it legal-likc. Belkas and Welch then survived a brief butting orgy by Wisbar to beat him. nelkas received credit with a "crucifix". Thc combined time was 20 minutes. Wisbar and Welch captured the single . fall preliminaries. Wisbar cleverly turned apparent detent into a brilliant victory to beat Belkas in the opener that went 20 minutes. He caught the soldier coming in with an Intended fourth flying tackle. Ife quickly applied a flying body scissor and rolled Chris over for the fail before lie or the fans realized what had happened. Welch oulsiuggcd Szabo to take their match in 10 minutes. The •larger, boys put on quite a fight before Hoy clamped on n crab that forced Szabo to holler "cnlf ropu".
