Two of the squads that will meet are knotted in the number two spot in the league standings and will be fighting for the runner-up position for the year. The Bergland Vikings will travel to Bessemer to meet the Speed Boys In what bolls down to the final all-out effort on the part of both squads and Ironwood will meet White Pine in an effort to end the season with an unblemished league record. Both Bergland and Bessemer have identical 3-4 records and the Vikings, who nave been sitting In second place most of the season, will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak. Bessemer, on the other hand, has come up from the depths of the league ranks to capture the tie and will be fighting to remain in that spot. * * * Bergland started the season in championship form as it downed the Hurley Midgets 9-1 in its first game and beat White Pine 10-2 In the sec o n d contest. Ironwood brought about the Vikings' first Joss by a 6-2 margin and in the first meeting of the year between Bergland season. and Bessemer, the Vikings left little room for doubt as they strangled the Speed Boys 17-3. Bergland then went on the los- one run. ing path, however, and dropped a 7-5 decision to Hurley, a 15-5 game to White Pine and last Tuesday was edged by I r o n- wood 6-4. Bssemer lost Jts sea s o n opener to Ironwood 20-1, but came back to beat Hurley by an 11-4 margin. The Speed Boys then beat White Pine 8-1 and Bergland handed the Speed Boys their second loss of the season by a 17-3 tally. Ironwood and Hurley counted up two more Bessemer losses 6-5 and 21, respectively, snd on Monday the Speed Boys downed White Pine 8-0. The contest is scheduled to get underway at 6:30 at Mass i e Field at Bessemer. The White Pine Warriors wil be attempting to play the part of the spoiler and repeat last year's performance of being the only team in the league to hand Ironwood a loss all season. * * * The Warriors, last year, blem ished the Red Devils' perf eel record and have a chance to do the same in tbnlght's affair The Warriors are in last place in the standings with a 2-5 record and a win tonight would put .the idle Hurley Midgets into a last place tie with the Warriors. Ironwood sits on the reverse of the league coin after clinching the league crown with three games still remaining on its schedule. The Red Dev i 1 s hold a perfect 7-0 record and will be attempting to get by the Warriors tonight. White Pine began the season with four losses in a row, Bergland 10-2, Hurley 9-6, Bessemer 8-1 and Ironwood 6-5, but the Warriors finally got on the winning end of things with a 15-5 win over Bergland and continued to win with a 19-2 victory over Hurley, but fell to the Bessemer Speed Boys on Monday 8-0. Ironwood's winning str i n g began with a 20-1 win over Bessemer and continued with a 6 decision over Bergland, a 11-1 trouncing over Hurley, a 6-5 win over White Pine, a 6-? victory over Bessemer, a 15-5 swamping over Hurley and a 6-4 decision over Bergland on Tuesday.

The White Sox, outhomered 52 in the marathon slugfest at Cleveland, scored three unearned runs in the 12th aftei an error by shortstop Dick Howser and handed the Indians their sixth straight setback. In the only other action in the majors, Chicago and Milwaukee divided a National League doubleheader, the Braves winning the second game 6-3 despite a Chicago triple play after the Cubs had taken the opener 5-2. Fisher, who has appeared inj 46 of his club's 82 games and! won one more game than the White Sox starters have fin- shed, yielded a second run in he 12th after Chicago's decisive ally.

Spahn Is Out Looking For New Job Today NEW YORK (AP) — Warren Spahn was looking for a job today after 74-year-old Casey Stengel decided the 44-year-old ,eft-hander was taking up valuable space in the New York Mets' youth movement. Spahn, who came to the Mets last November after starring for 20 years with the Braves first in Boston and later in Milwaukee, had lost eight straight and was 4-12 with a 4.43 earned run average when the Mets asked waivers on him Wednesday. I know I can still help a big league club," Spahn said Wednesday night. "Physically I feel fine and my arm feels strong. I'll take an oath on it. are against the other first division teams. A two-game set against Washington at home and a three-game series in New York completes the rugged portion of the schedule. The Tigers finished the first half of the season with a creditable 46-36 record,. good for Star game. How much the break helped the Tigers recover from some of their injuries remains to be seen. The team faces the toughest; were part of its schedule in the next; City, three weeks. Success in that period could go a long way In keeping the team in the thick of the pennant race. The Tigers' remaining 80 fifth place, seven games back of Minnesota. Thirty-three of the victories came at the expense of second division clubs.

But 18 of their next 23 games There isn't can't pitch any reason why I creditably for any club in the big leagues." Stengel, who will be 75 next week, told Spahn several days ago that he no longer would be considered a regular starting pitcher. "We want to give the younger men on our roster an opportunity in the youth development program," Stengel said.

Tom McGrath was the winning pitcher in the contest and was aided to victory by a double and a single by Mike Palmgren, two singles off the bat of "Jumbo" Niemi and a double and a single by Milto Krznarlch. McGrath went the distance for the winners and allowed only four hits, walked four and struck out four. Fertile started the pitching duties for the losers and was relieved in the fifth inning by Lonsway. Together they struck out five, walked seven and allowed eight hits. Thee were no extra-base hits by the Orioles. Spahn, who has won 360 games and is tied for sixth place on the all-time list with Kid Nichols, offered to become a relief pitcher. "I'm willing to go to the bullpen," he told Sten gel. "I feel I can work my way back to starting." But the offer was rejected. Spahn, who doubled as pitch ing coach, received $73,500 lo his dual role. The ,Mets firs place his name on the regular waiver list where a claim would cost $20,000. When there were no takers, at that price, he was put up for a nominal $1 fee, for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release. That makes him free to make a deal for himself. "This was not a move born of economy," Met General Manager George Weiss said. "We purchased him from Milwaukee knowing his salary. We thought he would help our club." Spahn did help for awhile. He won two of his first three starts, beating Los Angeles and San Francisco. Then he lost a 1-0 game to Philadelphia when opposing pitcher Jim Bunning hit a home run for the only run of the game. The Dodgers beat him twice by 2-1 scores, once behind Sandy Koufax and once with Don Drysdale. The veteran hurler's last victory came against Philadelphia May 24 but he has dropped eight of 10 starts since then.

They are 5-6 with Minnesota, and have seven games to play with the red hot Twins. Manager Charlie Dressen wants help from a few more I players • His first worry is pitching. Larry Sherry and Fred Gladding performed brilliantly in elief early in the season but have s'ipped in the last month. Newromer Orlando Pena and Terry Fox then became the most reliable but Pena Injured his arm when he banged it against a batting cage. A return to form by Dave Wickersham would be most welcome. He was Dressen's No project during the layoff and ,he main attraction at a practice session Tuesday. The big righthander has lost eight straight after winning his first start and has had trouble jetting by the final innings in lis latest starts. Norm Cash appears to be on lis way back—he had two homers against Kansas Cit last weekend—but Bill Freehan has slipped again after showing some signs of recovering from his series of injuries. Mickey Lolich (9-4) and Steve Barber (7^6) are the scheduled starters in tonight's opener of the four-game set with the Orioles. Party? Don't goof.
