(UPJ— There was a sweet tang today on the tongue of Fred Hancock, the Memphis shortstop wJio belted an eighth Inning homer with Ihe bases loaded K.S Hie Chicks jwampcct At- lanla H-3 night. It must have embarrassed Hancock Sunday when Cracker backstop Spec Dozler lagged him out coming home then pegged to second for the third killing of a brilliant triple play that started on a ccn- tcrficld fly. As Hancock got up and slapped the home-plate dirt from his knlck- C'rs. he must have Ixjen very unhappy .about the way the Crackers treated him But Ills grand-slam homer probably made up for it. and the Chicks' third win in a four-game scries wllh the Crackers probably helped.

Golfers Seek to Make Locke Eligible for PGA RICHMOND. Va,, April 27. (UP) —Two top-notch PGA members, colorful Jimmy Demarct nnd leading money maker Lloyd Mangrum. today were trying to shoulder a way through the rules barring visiting South African Bobby Locke from participation in the PGA tournament nt St. Louis May 19-25. Demarct offered a direct solution lo the technical difficulty. He said since Locke is barred because he Is not a PGA member, the PGA should give the bpnlckercd visiting pro an honorary membership and welcome him heartily to its own show.
