"And, the stewards just have to come down the elevator to talk to the jockeys if they have to, rattier than race to the back of the building to find them. It all saves time," he added. Race fans can be whisked to their seats via a 50 - passenger elevator, escalators or stairs.

He is married and the father of three. Monday Magic Lost by Mets MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) — Monday has lost its special magic for the hapless New York Mets. Now it's just another whitewash day. The Milwaukee Braves' Ken Johnson blanked the Mets on seven hits, 6-0, Monday night. The cellar-dwellers had been shut out 11 times previously this season, but never on Monday. In fact, the Mets had lost only once on Monday this season and that was opening day against Don Drysdale and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since then, the Mets had played 10 Monday games, winning nine and tying one. Casey Stengel, the Mets' manager, was hard pressed to explain the Monday phenomenon. "We just beat the pants off everybody and no umpires fixed it for us either. We have one day a year. That's us." His lieutenant, coach Yogi Berra. had no explanation either. "It was just one of those things," Berra said. "Some clubs don't lose doubleheader s." Lions, Angels Cop Victories In the doubleheader played in the Ironwood Farm Baseb a 11 League Monday morning, the Angels defeated the Bombers 7-3 in the first game and the Lions nipped the Red Raiders 2-1 in the second game. K. Wills went the distance for the Angels, striking out 11 batters and allowing only two hits, a double by T. Mildren and a triple by Carli. After the Tombers scored one run in the top of the first, the Bombers walked five batters in a row when the Angels scored four runs in the bottom of the first putting on a wide margin lead. Held scoreless in the second inning, the Tombers scored only one run in the third and fourth innings, but could not match the Angeles' scoring in the second and third innings as the Angels put three more runs across the plate. The losing pitchers were Carli and Schmidt, striking out eight together. Under the brilliant pitching by P. Anderson, the Lions kept the Red Raiders scoreless until the last inning when one run came across the plate in a last ditch defensive effort. The Lions scored their two runs with Kauppi scoring in the second inning and Benson coming across the plate in the top of the last stan za. Anderson, the winning pitcher struck out 11 and allowed only two hits and Domln, on the hil for the Red Raiders, struck out nine and allowing six hits. Fudaly slammed a double for the Raiders. Fines Eliminated By Pittsburgh CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — When a Pittsburgh .Pirate play er makes a bad play he is n longer liable for an automati fine that he can then work of by making good plays. Manager Harry Walker said the fines were eliminated at a weekend meeting of the team, but denied the situation had ever approached anything that might be described as a crisis. "There had been some sulking, but only three or four men were really discontented." Walker told a newsman. "The ines we had in effect were not grater than on other clubs and not as large as in other places." The fines were on a credits and debits, and a man who had been charged with a fine could work it off by pulling off some jood plays. Walker said they were assessed when a pitcher threw a 0-2 ball in a good hitting zone, for failure to make good on a bunt, failure to advance a runner and so on. "A fine against the pitcher, for instance, could start at $100 but with each good pitch he made ho reduced it by $25," he States Have Laws Against Imports CHICAGO (AP) — You can get in trouble with the law in a lumber of states if you drive cross their borders with liquor >r cigarettes in your car. The hances, however, are remote. Nearly all states have laws banning the import of alcohol or cigarettes without paying a tar- ff. A few states prohibit individuals from bringing in any beer or liquor for personal use. The World Almanac in 1908 advertised a gallon "baby bar- rell" of 7-year-old Maryland rye whisky shipped directly from a Baltimore distillery to the consumer. Bypassing the middle man this way is a thing of the past. The reason is that practically every state relies on the import of tobacco products and for the same reason. The states do not have the tariffs problems involved in trade between nations, but there are some regulations. In some cases a state will ban the import of a product to protect a segment of its own economy. Wisconsin, for example, prohibits the sale of colored margarine to protect Its dairy industry. The import laws on alcohol and tobacco apply in some cases to individuals as well as retail and wholesale firms but officials concede It would be virtually impossible to enforce them against individual violations. States which either forbid individuals to import liquor or tobacco for personal use or limit to form a quart to a gallon the amount that can be brought in tax free include: Virginia, Mississippi, Nevada, Georgia, Carolina, Washington, Pennsylvania, South Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Indiana, Oregon, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, California, Utah, Maine and Idaho. In some of these states — Virginia, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Montana, Utah and Idaho — the sale of liquor is a state monopoly. explained. "That gives the idea. "Look at this book. It shows the fines against various players. It also shows that most of them are even, for they had their chance to balance back through good work."

And Short has the backing of Al Lopez, the field manager Since taking the reins of the White Sox in 1961, Short has been battling for legalization of the spicball which was outlawed in 1920.
