Tenn., April 28. (UP) — The Chicago White Sox have optioned 20 year old Gordon Golds- bnrry, slugging first baseman to the Memphis Chicks of the Southern Association it wns announced to- By Gene Patterson United rres* Sports Writer ATLANTA, Ga., April 28. (UP) — If the old war-horse, Hugh Mulcahy, hurt a beard, he could chuckle in it today about the way ho has taught the wise guys not to consider a pitcher washed up Just because he's been around a while. It was Mulcnhy, scarred by learned alter years ill the majors, who toed the rubber for Memphis last night. And It was Mulcahy, more chief than fireman, who blanked the Birmingham Barons on three hits to keep the Chicks on top of the Southern Association with a 1-0 victory. Mulcahy, 34 years old, cracked hla curve and whipped his fast ball past the youngsters for nine innings. And he got the added satisfaction of out-pitching Irving Medlingcr no less—the smooth-cheeked Baron rookie who has brought approving lucks around the league with his hie hurling. The youthful Medlinger turned n a pretty neat job himself, giving up Just seven hits before he was day. Baseball Standings SOUTHERN LEAGUE W. L.

TOP) —The Citation—Coaltown entry may be scaring away the owners of other three-year-olds but today it began drawing what may be a record crowd of racing fans for next Saturday's Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.

It was' freely predicted that, the crowd would swell to 100,000 or more by post time on Sat- aro. the Calumet colt covered th mile in 1:37 2|5 and paid $2.20 to win.
