The popular rider for the 3rd time this meeting Friday brought in 5 winners to boost his total to 102 wins. Longden reached the 100-mark when he brought in Sainaloa in the 5th race. His feat was announced to the crowd of 27,185 racing fans and brought a cheer of approval. The little jockey is the leading rider in American history with well over 3,000 winners during his career. He long ago passed the Hollywood Park record of 73 winners for a meeting which he set last season. By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor Firing gets underway in the annual city golf tournament at the Mason City Country club at 8 o'clock Sunday morning with the championship flight contenders in the field of 32 slated to play 2 matches on Sunday. Lower flights are composed of 16 players and the participants will be required to play only one match on Sunday and their 2nd one by Wednesday. A tee-off time has been set for both Nos. 1 and 10 tees and all players must be on hand by the time their flight has moved off the tee or forfeit. Humphrey the Favorite Lyle Humphrey, a 6-time city champion and winner of the event for the past 2 seasons after a wartime recess, will again be the favorite. He has been playing good golf all season and turned in a qualifying 71, even par, although the defending champ is not required to qualify. Humphrey's first round opponent is Willis Patton, a golfer who shoots consistently in the 70s. In the semifinals of play a year ago, Humphrey squeaked out a narrow 2 and 1 victory over Patton. On Friday, Humphrey touvsd the 6,400 yard layout in 72 in a tuneup round. Acknowledged to be a fine match player, he is conceded the edge to repeat although the competition is the strongest in a good many years. High Entry Total A total of 125 qualified for tournament play, the highest total since before the war. Among the players who are expected to give Humphrey a strong d for the title are Ed Clouse, who fired a 71 in the qualifications. Jerry Harrer, runnerup for the title a year ago, Don Bracken, an ex-champ who is back on his game, and Ron Fallows, a formei 5-time winner of the meet and an ex-caddy mate of Humphrey. Cross a Darkhorsc A consistent local tournamenl contender and a darkhorse in the meet is Mickey Cross, who qualified with a 78. Friday afternoon Cross played a practice round in a brilliant 2-under par 69.

Ted Williams Back in Game for Red-hots By CARL LUNDQUIST New York, (U.R)—Who said the Red Sox didn't have any pitching depth? Well, Manager Lou Boudreau of Cleveland was one gent who did, yet Saturday as he took his league leaders into Boston for a vital 3- game set it looked like the Red Sox might, be deep enough in pitching to inundate the Indians. 8 Different Winners The merry men of Marse Joe McCarthy, riding a 9-game winning streak, had 8 different winning pitchers during the stretch. The only man to win 2'games was Mickey (Himself) Harris, the hefty lefty, who until last week was considered the number one liability on the staff. The Red Sox celebrated the return of Ted Williams Friday as they humiliated the White Sox 13-1. Teddy boy got a 3-run double and a single as Harris pitched a 5- hitter. Bobby Doerr hit a homer Saturday Night It's Rocky/ell; Spencer on Sunday Afternoon The Mason City Legionnaires make another double home stand in Mason City this weekend. On Saturday night at 8:30, Rockwell will be here for a game. The Rockwell club is composed of seasoned ball players and rates among the top independent teams in North Iowa. • On Sunday afternoon at 2:30, the hit-happy Cardinals from Spencer again invade Roosevelt field, this time for a non-league contest. The Spencer club is leading the Winnebago league and has been especially rough on the Legionnaires since losing the loop opener at Roosevelt field. The Car- dinals now own a string of 3 straight wins over Mason City, one being the 29-0 slaughter here and the last one an 11-1 decision at Spencer. Barring any late changes, Muyy Fredricks will draw the starting hurling assignment against Rockwell with Mike Lloyd also available for action. Manager Don Blanchard has announced that he will shoot Al DiMarco against Spencer on Sunday in an attempt to save face against the powerful loop leaders. DiMarco has a lot of cute stuff on the mound and that may be what's needed to stop their heavy hitters. Legionnaires Capture 21st by Beating North wood 8-2 at Pueblo Holds Slim Western Loop Lead By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pueblo's league-leading Dodgers remained atop the Western loop heap Friday night with a 5-0 win over the Sioux City Soos as Right- hander Dick Tross held the visitors to 4 hits. Meantime Denver slapped out a 2-1 victory over Des Moines at Denver to remain within sniping distance of Pueblo in the standings. The top 2 clubs are separated by a single percentage point. Omaha made a couple of homers and some loose Lincoln fielding pay off 5-3 Friday night. Milwaukee Brewers Hold £ Game Lead By The Associated Press The Milwaukee Brewers, after a long and successful home stand, kept up their winning ways? Friday night as they opened a series at St. Paul with a victory to maintain their one-half game lead in the American Association.

The new face is that of Arthur Wint, a University of London medical student who announced he'd attempt the punishing task of competing in the 400 and 800 meter races as well as run a leg on 1,600 meter relay for the West Indies team. The games open next Thursday. On Friday comes the first round of the 800 meter run, now shaping up as one of the most important and exciting of nil flat races on the 8 - day track program. The semifinals are on Saturday and the finals on Monday, Aug. 2. In deference to British religious feeling there will be no competition on Sundays. Much last minute work remains to be done before the 5,000 athletes can start competition in a score of different sports. Half the contestants are here with a big influx due this weekend. Whitfield, the army sergeant and an Ohio State sophomore, is entered in the same 3 events as Wint. The 2 big athletes have met chatted amiably and worked out together. Their aim for an unprecedented Olympic games double can be thwarted. At both ends. In the 400 Wint and Whitfield must not only go through 3 heats before reaching the finals but also must defeat another Jamaican, Herb McKcnly, the former Illinois university quartermiler who holds world records lor both 400 meters 2 Pacific Coast Golfers Meet for Public Links Title Atlanta, (#>)—Two Pacific Coast golfing veterans—Ben Hughes, the stocky Portland, Ore., stylist, and Mike Ferentz, a Long Beach, Cal., bartender -— battled Saturday for the Public Links golf title. The finalists are 2 of the smallest men who qualified to play in the National Public Links. Hughes, who constantly smokes long cigars and then chews them thoroughly, is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. Ferentz, a slow putter, is 5 feet 5 inches and weighs 132 pounds. Both have long tournament records. Hughes played to the semifinals of last year's Public Links in Minneapolis, and Ferentz traveled on the professional circuit as an amateur for several matches. Hughes won a comparatively :asy 4 and 3 semifinals match rom Oliver Kay of Toledo, Ohio, ind Ferentz defeated Charley Barnes of Atlanta, 2 and 1. MICKEY HARRIS — Tosses 5 Hitter and double. The victory put Boston only a game-and-a-hal£ behind the leading Indians.

The melee with Mele thus proved — ^f nothing else — that the Red Sox can By RICK MEREDITH Globe-Gazette Sports Writer Northwood—Effective bunching of base hits in 3 innings enabled the Mason City Legionnaires to stop Northwood 8-2 in a twilight game here Friday 1'or the 21st Mason City success against 5 setbacks. Paul Bruns was the big stick man for the winners with a single, double and triple in 4 times up. He drove in 2 with his one-baser and was leading off when getting his other wallops. Bob Henely hit 3 for 5 as Northwood's Gene Bliton was touched for 11 hits. Shutout Until 7th Jim Hogue shut Northwood out until the 7th, when he gave up a single run, and he was nicked for another in the 9th. He allowed 8 hits, only one for extra bases, and scattered them well as the home team was charged with 13 men left on base. Hogue hit 2 for 4, knocked runs in and set some kind of a record with 10 assists from the mound, more than half of Mason City's total of 17. Score in 1st Trouble struck early in the first for Bliton. Blanchard, batting in the No. 2 spot, walked, and Gu? DiMarco, switched to No. 3 in the order, got a ground rules double to rjgiitfield. Bruns' sharp single sent them in. Four hits were good for 3 more in the 4th. Brims' double startcc it. Bob Barracks, Hogue and Henely each singled in the scores. I was almost ditto in the 8th onl> this time Bruns' starter was a 3- bagger. The same trio supplied the RBIs, Barracks on a long fly, and Mike Lloyd singled to score later on Hogue's liner. Northwood loaded the bags in the 5th on 2 hits and a fielder's choice but as in earlier frames couldn't punch any over the plate. Jim Wigness got home in the 7th after he singled and was sent in on one by Bill Ebert. The final tally in the 9th came when Arnold Ful'lniouth doubled in Stan Wig- ness. The Legionnaires wo?!"*? guilty of 5 infield errors though Hogue handled his heavy fielding duties without a miscue. The boxscoie: New York, (/P)—Some major eague club owners still are fuss- .ng about the bonus rule because .hey say a player's development is retarded when he has to be advanced to the big leagues with very little training in the minors. . . . One theory is that a non-bonus player makes more dough in the long run because he can move into the top salary brackets while your bonus star is resting on the bench. . If that's true, it seems that a very simple solution would be for everybody to refrain from giving oversized bonuses to kids who aren't worth it—that is, who aren't ready 'for the big time when they're signed.

National Grid Loop fo Have Rotating Card Over 5 Years Philadelphia, (U.R) — Commissioner Bert Bell oE the National football league, Saturday announced that he had devised a plan for a new 5-year schedule for the 10 teams in the loop. The plan, which would become operative in 1949, calls for each team in the eastern and western divisions to meet each other in an equal number of home and away games over the 5-year period. Belt had been working on the plan since last January when the league gave him full authority to draw up schedules as long as he remained commissioner. The commissioner said the opening dates and playing sites for each team will depend upon the annual closing dates of the major league baseball clubs in whose parks the NFL plays. while George Vico and Vic Wertz got triples lor Detroit.
