14 July M. IMS »• Citr GI«fc«-Omiett», Mai» CHy, U. Ed C louse Fires 71 in Qualifications Ron Fallows, Former Champion, in Field With 98 entries in the city golf tournament at the Mason City Country club and more expected to qualify by deadline time Friday evening, there were 2 important developments. Ed Clouse, one of top local golfers, turned in a qualifying score of 71, even par over the Country club course, for the lowest round posted in qualifications. Clouse was one under par at 35 for the first 9 but. slipped one over to a 36 on the 2nd 9. The 2nd note of importance was that Ron Fallows, a colonel in the air force who is visiting in Mason City, has qualified with a 76. His entry provides another tough contender for Lyle Humphrey in defense, of his city crown. Fallows is a former 5-time winner of the city title, his first win coming when he was only 14 years old. Howard Lake, recent winner of the Legion Holiday golf tournament, qualified Wednesday with a 79 as did Ed Nixon and Rusty Osmundson while Tom Waggoner fired an 80. All scores of 80 and under are almost certain to make the championship flight. Play in all flights will begin Sunday. Sports Calendar FRIDAY—Legionnaires at Northwood, time 5:00.

Rickey Soothes Wrath of Montreal Baseball Fans With $8,000 Gift Montreal, (U.R)—Branch Rickey gave away $8,000 Wednesday in an attempt to soothe the hurt feelings of Montreal baseball fans. The money was the Brooklyn Dodgers' share of the gate receipts for an exhibition game played here on July 12 against the Dodgers' Montreal farm team. The fans were angry because the Dodgers' Negro Star Jackie Robinson played only one inning in that game. Rickey, Dodger president, said thfe $8,000 would found "the Montreal amateur baseball foundation" which would "serve to promote the interests of baseball in the city and district of Montreal, and to provide baseball equipment for amateur leagues and sandlot baseball clubs." Quincy Continues in Three I Loop Runaway By The Associated Press The Quincy Gems moved 9i games ahead of 2nd place Danville Thursday in the Three I league baseball race. The Gems beat Danville 6-0 in a rain-shortened 6-inning game Wednesday night. Art Bonham gave Danville only 2 hits as the Gems swept the 3 game series. Evansville, meanwhile, climbed to within a half game of Danville by knocking off Terre Haute's 4th place club twice 5-2 and 9-1. Springfield lost 7-3 to Decatur in the only other game scheduled. Outfielder Keith Thomas of Quincy hit a homer' in the 3rd inning with one man on. Sam Snead Wins in West Virginia Open Wheelinz, W. Va., (IP) — Sam Snead had his 4th West Virginia Open golf championship tucked away Thursday with a par-busting 72-hole score of 268. Snead, winning by 10 strokes, was 12 under par in the tourney ended Wednesday. Denver Wins 18th Tilr in Last 20 Contests By The Associated Press Denver took over 2nd place in the Western league Thursday, a half game behind the league-leading Pueblo Dodgers. The Bears downed Des Moinea 10-5 for their 18th victory in their last 20 starts. Lincoln lost to Omaha 18-2 to drop into 3rd spot, a game off the pace. Cellar-dwelling Sioux City beat Pueblo 12-6 to round out the action. 10-3 MOVIE AP \Virephoto GIRL HURLER WINS ASSIGNMENT ON MALE TEAM —Blond Beatrice Metesh, 19-year-old pitcher, chats with Manager Ed Briese of the St. Joseph's American Legion baseball team of Joliet, 111., during a game in which she limited all-male opponents to 9 hits but lost the game. She won a starting assignment with the semi-pro team, however, on the basis of her performance. Beatrice got one of the team's 5 hits and drove in a run. Her brother, Bob, is the team's regular catcher. Boudreau Calls His Indians "Best Team in the League' M. Ry OSCAR FRALEY New York, (U.R)—The Cleveland Indians were on a tremendous hot spot Thursday because Lou Boudreau had broken the most iron bound rule in the managerial book of etiquette by announcing that his team, "definitely" was going to win the American league pennant. Confident almost to the point of cockiness, Boudreau relaxed in the shade of the Indian dugout before Wednesday's doubleheader and unequivocably named his club "the best in the league." The Tribe then proceeded to come apart at the seams and blow the first game to the Yanks before making olive-cheeked Lou look good by winning the 2nd. Thinks Feller Ready "We have hitting, pitching and a good defense," Boudreau said. "We are in a great spot because we managed to stay up there this far without too much help from home. This happened a few minutes after Sad Sam Zoldak, one of the Cleveland pitching procession, took Ed Lopat's tap to the mound and almost threw to 2nd base—although there were no other base runners. More Comedy Then, in the 8th, little Phil Rizzuto laid down a bunt and Catcher Joe Tipton and Pitcher Russ Christopher both laid back from it as if the ball was a hand grenade. The scooter scooted safely across first base. All in all it was quite a hectic afternoon for the Tribe. It provoked the possibility that Boudreau might be sued for libel for calling this the "best team" in the league. Good Re//ef Pitching Job by D/Marco By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor The Mason City Legionnaires broke a 4th inning 3-3 deadlock with the Mason City VFW team and went on to score a 10-3 triumph at Roosevelt field Wednesday evening for the 19th triumph of the season for the Legionnaires. The stickwork of the 2 clubs was about even with the Vets getting 9 safe blows to 8 for the Legionnaires. The payoff came through walks and errors. Glen Brown and Carroll Baker, VFW pitchers, gave up a total of 11 bases on balls and the Vets were shaky afield as they committed 6 errors in the game. DiMarco Effective Gus DiMarco was the winning pitcher for the Legionnaires as he pitched effective ball. Mike Lloyd started on the mound for the winners but after giving up 3 hits and 2 runs in the first frame, he moved to the outfield with DiMarco coming in from third base and pitching the final 8 innings. He scattered 6 hits and the only run he gave up came in the 4th frame on a walk, a single by Merle McLaughlin and a wild pitch. The game was knotted in the first frame when the Legionnaires made an error, a wild pitch, 2 stolen bases, 2 walks and a hit good for a pair of markers. Bob Barracks, first man up for the Legionnaires in the 3rd frame, lined a single off the right foot of Brown and he had to be removed from the game. A walk, Lu Diaz' sacrifice and a wild pitch by Baker put the Legionnaires ahead 3-2. Bier 6th Inning: In the 5th inning, a pair of walks and 2 errors gifted the Legionnaires into a 5-3 lead. The roof fell in on Baker in the 6th frame as the Legionnaires sent 5 runs across the plate to sew up the game. Four singles, a walk, a sacrifice and 2 errors by Irv Fitzgerald contributed to the splurge. There were 4 double plays executed in the game, 3 by the VFW club. McLaughlin of the Vets and Barracks of the Legionnaires shared top honors at the plate with 3 singles and a walk apiece.

The game was a replay of Tuesday night's game which was tied when it was called because of tain. There were no other games played Wednesday night LOU BOUDREAU —Lots of Confidence Bob Feller. Now I think he's ready to stafrt winning consistently and with the rest of the staff we've got we certainly figure to be up there the rest of the way." The "rest of the staff" wasn't much more effective Wednesday than the losing Feller has been so far this season, almost all of them seeing service as Boudreau had to use 8 flingers in the 2 games. Small wonder, either, from the support they received. The "best team in the league" committed 5 errors but that first game was the real dilly. Boudreau started it off with an error in the 2nd and from there on the rest of the team crowded into the act for a real comedy. Dale Mitchell dropped Tommy Henrich's line drive for another error in the'3rd and then pulled the prize of the day in the 5th, He was on first with one out when Larry Doby belted a long fly to right. Mitchell kept right on going to 3rd. Even Yanks Confused The Yanks were so confused that they almost forgot what to do as Henrick relayed the ball to Snuffy Stirnweiss. Phil Rizzuto Called for it—proving at leasj one guy was in the ball game—and relayed to first for the double play. • In the 7th, the usually reliable Joe Gordon trapped Joe DiMa'ggio off fint but finally threw the ball awny. DiMag waa safe back at first and Larry Berra trotted Kautsky Sells Out Interest in Pro Basketball Team Indianapolis, (U.R)— Frank Kautsky began looking around Thursday for "some other place" to resume his activities in professional basketball. Kautsky sold his share Wednesday night in the Indianapolis team that bears his name. He had been owner or co-owner of the outfit for 20 years. Kautsky sold his 49 per cent of the club's stock to his co-owner, Paul Walk. The transaction was said to have involved a sum in excess of $25,000. He gave no reason for leaving the team. It was reported, however, that he and Walk had disagreed over the operation of the squad last season. "I'm not sure yet where I'm going," Kautsky said. "I love basketball, and I'm going to start all over, if necessary." A basketball promoter since the days when the sport was a struggling infant drawing crowds of 2 and 300 persons, Kautsky was one of the organizers of the National Professional Basketball league in 1936. He organized his first semipro team in 1928.
