(H), State of Israel Can't Compete in Olympics London, (£>)_The International Olympic Committee ruled Friday that the new state of Israel cannot compete in the Olympics games. The decision reduced the number of competing nations to 61 for the games starting July 29. An informed source on the I. O. C. said the executive committee rejected an appeal of the Israeli sports organizations which wanted to take up the invitation issued by the British organizing committee to the Palestine Olympic committee. The rejection was a technicality. The new state of Israel, born May 15, is not a member of the International Olympic Committee and thus is ineligible to receive an invitation. WRECKER B AND YOU | REMEMBER • • No night gets too dark and No day too stormy or cold For us to come to your call for wrecker help Call us and see wrecker speed. • • I PRITCHARD MOTOR CO. Tour Friendly Ford Dealer 202 1st St. S. E. Ph. 922 Night Phon» 453D-J By LEO U. PETERSEN London, (U.R)—Dean Cromwell, coach of the U. S. Olympic track and field team, Friday predicted victory for his team in at least 4 events but refused to do any crystal gazing on the others. Cromwell, the southern California mentor, told a group of reporters, including representatives of the British press, that he "didn't know of anybody who could beat the American pole vaulters, high jumpers, broad jumpers, or shot putters." Skeptical of Reports While declaring that he "preferred to wait until the events at Wembley stadium next week" before predicting the finish of other events, Cromwell was inclined to be skeptical about reports of brilliant "unknowns" from other countries. One reporter asked him what he thought of the Balkan sprinter Molna who is supposed to have run near world's record time. "I will have to see that myself," said the dean. "Any big, well-proportioned man who can run looks like he's making tremendous speed. But I always like to take the evidence of those $500 stopwatches we use on our boys against any alleged report." Jack Mendonca, co-coach of the boxing team, also was in a mood for predictions of victory. Boxing Team Good "This team is the best we have ever taken to the Olympics," said the coach from Oakland, Cal. "There were unfortunately 3 or 4 good boxers eliminated in the trials because of the heavy schedule they fought, but this squad looks tops. I'd say Welterweight Hank. Herring of the Navy, Flyweight Frankie Cerdano of Philadelphia, and Heavyweight Jay Lambert of Leahr, Utah, were almost certain winners." Col. F. R. Weber, leader of tha U. S. team in the Modern Pentathlon, gave his team only "an outside chance" to win. "My calculations show that we have an outside chance at the title," said Weber. "We have a good chance of winning the silver medal and I do think all our men will be among the 10 best." The swiming team was anxiously waiting to see how the "trick knee' of free-style star Wally Ris of Iowa would respond to a workout Friday. The knee mysteriously popped back into its proper place during flag - raising ceremonies Thursday but it was then kept immobile for 24 hours. ' Predicts a Sweep Bob Kephuth of the men's swimming outfit predicted that Joe Verdeur of Philadelphia and Bob Sohl of York, Pa., would score a clean sweep in the 200- meter breast stroke, and he also foresaw a U. S. victory in the relay. Confident track men were coming through their training in fine form. Pole vaulter Boo Morcom of New Hampshire was particularly impressive as he nonchalantly cleared 14 feet time after time just to limber up. He seemed a cinch to beat the 14 feet, Scinches with which Earle Meadows of the U.S.A. won the 1936 Olympic vault. Publinx Tourney Goes to Semifinals Atlanta, (JP) — Two westerners took on a southerner and an easterner in the 36-hole semi-finals of the National Public Links golf tournament Friday. Pairing of survivors after 4 days and 108 holes of intensive f ^o during the 23rd national tc ornament are: Oliver Kay, Toledo, Ohio, with Ben Hughes, Portland, Ore., and Mike Ferentz, Long Beach, Cal., with Charley Barnes, Atlanta. LEFTIES AND EIGHTIES Cincinnati, {#")—Members of the Cincinnati Reds compiled a J947 batting average of .259 against left-handed pitchers and a .274 mark against right-handers. Cincinnati southpaw sluggers hit lefties for a .238 average and right- handers for a .254 mark while Red right-handed hitters hit the southpaws at a .298 clip and the righties at .245.

STORAGE MOVING PACKING CRATING WE SOLVE ALL YOUR MOVING PROBLEMS MODERN MOVING VANS EXPERIENCED MEN ALWAYS COURTEOUS SERVICE Phone 4000 Mason City Warehouse Corp. * Yankees Tag Feller With 12th Defeat By CARL LUNDQUIST New York, (U.R) — Nobody has seen Ted Williams reading the iclp wanted ads so it is safe to assume that the slender slugger can have his job back if he wants it but the Red Sox are doing mighty nicely without him. In fact they were enjoying their longest -winning streak of the season, 8 straight games, and had at least moved past the Yankees and into 3rd place in the tightening American league pennant race. And all without Williams. Stephens Takes Over When Thumpin' Theodore went out of the lineup on July 10 with a pulled side muscle it looked like a body blow to the Red Sox pennant chances. So what happened? Led by their junior slugger, Vern Stephens, the Red Sox have won 13 out of 15 games without Williams and that's just about like trying to run a railroad without a locomotive. Thursday, Stephens hit 2 run homers in each game of a doubleheader as the Red Sox topped the White Sox 3-0 and 5-3. The junior joiter drove In 5 runs for the day to take the major league lead in runs batted in with 83. He gave Uncle Denny Galehouse a 2-run lead with his homer in the first inning of the opcr.e." and the veteran right handcr went on to pitch a 5 hitter.

By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor The Mason City Legionnaires kept their hopes alive to catch Spencer in the Winnebago league by downing the Estherville Red Sox 11-0 at Roosevelt field Thursday night before the smallest crowd of the season with many of the fans in heavy jackets and topcoats as they shivered through the game in unseasonably cool weather. The weather may have been chilly but the performance of a pair of former Mohawk stars wasn't. Harold Kornbaum and Gus DiMarco shared honors in the Mason City victory—real honors. Kornbaum, DiMarco Star Kornbaum, in pitching the shutout, gave up only 2 hits and fanned 10 Estherville batters. The only hit off him until the 9th inning was a dinky infield dribbler The Boxscore ESTHERVILLE—0 AB Boetlcher, Jib 4 Wilson, If 4 Kunyan, Kb 4 Rosser, cf 3 J. W«llz, ss a Berfland, e 2 B. Wolti.

The questions all the athletes were asking was, "where is all that food from the United States and other countries that was supposed to have been provided as a special diet for the competitors? We haven't seen it yet." The Americans were dissatisfied particularly with the meals they have been served since they arrived at their training camps. They pointed out that one meal consisted of 1 lamb chop, another of very fatty boiled beef. One Yank wrestler, who preferred to remain imnamed, said, "they offer us plenty to eat in the form of potatoes and other fattening food which we can't eat because of weight limits, but nothing, that's really good for us." "We are trying to improve the food situation," said Kenneth L. "Tug" Wilson, vice president of the U. S. Olympic committee. "The complaints concern taste rather than quality." The United States team is having bread and eggs flown over every 2 days, but so far these items have not shown on the training tables. Waterloo, Stuart Get; Semipro Wins Add, (/P) — Waterloo clubbed Nevada 15-2 and Stuart turned back Grimes 9-5 in 2nd round games in the state scmipro baseball tournament Thursday.

Hughes, who had a record of 4 defeats withoitt a single victory so far this season, was optioned to the Red's Syracuse farm team of the International league. Ho has been bothered by a sore arm and will be unable to report to his new team for at least 10 days. WANT SOFTBALL GAMES Swaledale — The Swaledale Saints wish to book softball games with teams in the north Iowa area to fill several open dates remaining on the season's schedule. For games contact H. E. Morse, Swale- dale, phone 52701. TOO MUCH EFFORT Oak Ridge, Tenn., (/P)—Two men were out and the count was strike one. ball one on the batter. PUch- er Clyde Simuions wound up and threw—and broke his right forearm. Kleen, Estherville pitcher, DiMarco also got a single in the 5th frame for 4 hits in 5 trips to the plate for the evening. He was credited with 4 runs batted in and scored 4 runs himself. Spencer Beats Bancroft The not so cheerful news for Thursday night was that Spencer took another loop contest. In a game at Bancroft, the Cardinals beat the Lions 11-8 in a 12-inning contest. The Lions held an 8-4 lead in the game but Bill Burgess cracked a 400-foot homer over the centerfiekl fence to put Spencer back in the game and they went on to down the Lions after 3 extra frames. Except for being a cousin to DiMarco, Kleen hurled creditable ball. He had 2 out in the 2nd frame when Jim Hogue doubled and Mike Lloyd homered to give the Legionnaires a 2-0 lead. In the 3rd frame, 2 batters were retired when DiMarco got his first homer. Potent Attack Three Mason City runs in the 5th came as a result of an error and 3 straight singles and 2 batters were retired in the 6th when DiMarco cracked his 2nd homer. A pair of errors and a wild pitch contributed to the 3 Legionnaire runs in the 6th frame. A walk and Lloyd's double gave Mason City another marker in the 7th and DiMarco completed the scoring in the 8th frame by leading off with a terrific clout to dead centerfield. The victory was the 20th of the season for Mason City as against only 5 defeats, 3 by the Spencer Cardinals who will be here foi % a non-league gama on Sunday afternoon at 2:30. On Saturday night at Roosevelt field, the Legionnaires will meet Rockwell.

SPORTS PARADE By OSCAR FRALEY New York, (U.R)—That master electrician, Joe McCarthy, apparently had the bugs eliminated from his push-button board and the wiring job appeared capable of short circuiting Lou Boudreau's ridiculously early claim to the American league pennant. Jimmy Dykes, since departed from the big top, hung that "push button" pilot label on Marse Joe. But that instrument panel still may wind up giving Boudreau, the Cleveland Indian manager, quite a shock. Hottest in League For the Boston Red Sox, current McCarthy push-button project, are the hottest thing in baseball at the moment. They have blazed into contention for the stretch run with 11 wins in 12 starts and 15 out of 19. On top of which you still can't count out those persistent Athletics and the ever threatening Yankees. Which makes it a 4 team race. Billy Southworth of the Boston Braves, sporting a comfortable lead in the National league, was in a much better position to make the Boudreau statement. All he has to do is drive back the Dodgers. Boudreau's contention was that the Bosox are overloaded with power but don't have the pitching necessary to win. Lou whistling past a bone orchard. For in this Bosox victory march, the men of McCarthy have had 9 pitchers go the distance. Cleveland has received only 7 completely pitched games in the whole month of July. Boston's "Ifs" The big "ii's" in Boston are Tex Hughson, who came back to win in relief, and Ellis Kinder. If they get going, the Bosox will make it a landslide. Meanwhile, Boudreau himself has a rather large "if" in Bob Feller. Should the big Iowa boy start going these 2 teams should make it practically a dead heat to the wire. The A's are an indeterminate factor. They have wonderful pitching and very quietly have managed to stay right up in there. Nobody really knows how, but there they are. In is unlikely that they'll be there all the way; As for the Yanks, they have real pitching woes. You can't cop the bunting in the shape they are in. As of the moment it is the Red Sox they have to beat—not Cleveland. On May 31 the Bosox were By RICK MEREDITH Globe-Gazette Sports Writer Waterloo—Mason City will have its Junior Legion baseball team in the state tourney it entertains Mtlrir"''of"". Aug. 6-8. The visiting team, paced Bennett, c by tovyering Jim VerHelst's superb pitching job, defeated Waterloo 5-3 here Thursday afternoon in the 2nd inter-district playoff to gain a berth in the state alongside Cedar Rapids and 2 teams yet WATERLOO—3 to be determined. VerHelst, who hurled a 1-0 shutout against the Waterloo nine in the first inter-district -playoff game at Mason City Sunday, dished up a 4-hitter and watched the losers count 3 unearned runs in the Gth. VerHelst held them hitless for the first 4 innings. Mason City tapped Buzz Matous for 9 bingles, hitting him in every frame. Elmer Starr's team collected 4 runs on 3 hits, 2 walks and a pair of errors in its big Gth D. Colloton Gets 3 Dickie Colloton, leadoff, got 3 of Mason City's hits while Bud Berger, Ray Holder and VerHelst each collected 2. Mason City had trouble bunching its safeties and as a result left 12 men on the bases for the 7 innings. D. Colloton started off the firs with a long double to the centerfield fence and scored on an overthrow at first as Bud Berger go on. One Score to Gth That was all the scoring until thi Gth. Here Berger singled and thi centerfielder miffed the ball letting in Rod Wright, who had walked, and VerHelst, who had singled. Berger counted on an error at 2nd which put Chuck Murr aboard and the latter was singled home by Ray Holder. Waterloo proceeded to put 3 men on. base, however, in the last of the 6th on singles by Ken Finch and Matous and Harold Neighbors was hit by a ball. D. Colloton scooped up Jack Bender's roller but threw far wide of 2nd, the ball going over the rightfield foul line as all of the Waterloo runs came in. Gives No Walks VerHelst whiffed 7 and gave up no walks. He had his crossfire bat- fling the Waterloo batters all the way and in the 4th he struck out the side in order, getting the home team's power hitters, Paul Kemp, Harold Neighbors and Matous.
