Surging Dodgers Win Behind Rex Barney 5-0 Mat on CUT Gl»fc«-O»i»tl«, M»t«n CUT. »»• July 21, '1948 13 Ump McGowan Suspended; Denies Washington Charges Washington, (U.R)—The cauldron was bubbling with an intramural American league baseball squabble Wednesday as suspended Umpire Bill McGowan denied he had "cursed" or "thrown a ball" at Outfielder Ed Stewart of the Washington Senators. There were reports that American League President Will Harridge was coming here to restore peace, but Harridge's office remained silent. McGowan, the league's senior "man in blue" and an arbiter in the league since 1925, was suspended Tuesday after an official of the Washington club charged Boston 50 Brooklyn 41 Pittsburgh 42 Major League STANDINGS NATIONAL, LEAGUE W.

Redlegs Again Defeat Braves Bosox Sweep Series Against Brownies By CARL LUNDQUIST New York, (U.R)—The faith tnat kept Pitcher Rex Barney in the majors even when, he started 24 straight games in 3 seasons without completing one, ,is paying off at last for the Brooklyn Dodgers. For Barney, the big cornhusker from Nebraska who had blinding speed but not even remote control, finally has conquered his Spencer 11; Legionnaires 1 BILL MCGOWAN —Talks to Himself him with "cussing out" Stewart and tossing a ball at him during the 10th inning of the game against the Cleveland Indians last Monday night. Talks to Himself "If Stewart said that," retorted McGowan Wednesday, "he's a liar. It isn't true. I was saying some things to myself, but I never talked to Stewart." Clark Griffith, Washington club owner who recommended McGowan as an umpire back in '25, hurried into the argument on the side of his player.. "It was just an accumulation of incidents," said Griffith. "McGowan has been going around with a chip on his shoulders." The official protest to Harridge was filed by Senators' Secretary Edward F. Eynon and charged that McGowan had on several occasions "abuse d" Washington players. Stewart admitted he didn't see McGowan throw a ball at him, but said "several of the fellows on the bench told me he did. Ray Scarborough, for one." More Charges Scarborough had a complaint of his own to enter against the umpire. He said McGowan called him. an uncomplimentary name and threw a balls-and-strikes indicator at him last Thursday night in, a game here against the Chicago White Sox. McGowan said, 'I might have mumbled a cuss word to myself but it wasn't directed at any players. The whole story astounds me. Whoever says I threw a ball at Stewart is a liar. I did roll a ball across the diamond toward Umpire Art Paparella to hustle the game along, but I didn't throw it." He refused to comment on President Harridge's action. "Mr. Harridge is running the league and all I ask is that I be dealt with fairly."

Globe-Gazette Sports Writer Spencer—The Spencer Cardinals virtually eliminated the Mason City Legionnaires from title consideration in the Wi.nnebago league here Tuesday night by capturing a decisive 11-1 verdict, in a game played during intermittent showers. The potent Cardinal attack, that produced 29 runs in a previous game, levelled a 21 hit barrage against Mully Fredricks, while Rudy Rauh, Spencer hurler, effectively scattered 9 hits to gain the victory.

THE FINEST AUTO BODY AND FENDER Repairing Service by Skilled and Experienced Men at John Gallagher, Inc. 22-24 3rd N. W. Phone 1144 Louis Denies Talk of One More Fight Detroit, (U.R)—Joe Louis, intent only on improving his golf game, delivered a knockout blow Wednesday to reports that he would return to the boxing ring for "just one more" defense of the heavyweight title against Gus Lesnevich in September. "This is final," said the Brown Bomber, "regardless of what anybody says or writes. I'll not fight Lesnevich in September and 1 won't fight anybody else at anytime. "I've hung up my gloves for good," said Louis after a conference Tuesday night with Co- Managers John Roxborough and Marshall Miles and Attorney Truman Gibson, Jr. Not in Writing The champion admitted that he had not yet sent a written resignation as champion to either the National Boxing association or the New York State Athletic commission. But he seemed to attach little importance to the final gesture that would sever him from the title he won back in 1937 from Jimmy Braddock. "I've got 6 months to send that letter, said the champ with a smile. "What's the rush?" Louis' failure to send a written resignation within a short time after defending his title recently against Jersey Joe Walcott caused many prominent persons in the boxing world to believe that he would be willing to defend again against Lesnevich, the world's light-heavyweight champion, if Lesnevich defeats Freddie Mills of Britain at London next Monday. Strauss Guessed Wrong Sol Strauss, acting director of the 20th Century Sporting club, was caught unawares by Louis' flat refusal to fight again. Tuesday Strauss said, "It is my opinion that Louis will fight Lesnevich on Sept. 22." Louis revealed that he intends to make his home in Chicago. As for his successor, the champ said he favored an elimination tournament to pick one man instead of just a single bout. REX BARNEY —Finds His Control wildness and in. an amazing reversal of form has pitched 4 straight complete games—all of them victories. Scores First Shutout Tuesday, when he hurled his first major league shutout, a 5-0 victory over the Cubs at Chicago, the handsome right hander who used to coach wayward kids at Father Flanagan's boys town in Nebraska, was master all the way. He walked only one batter, struck out 6 and no cub reached 3rd base. The Cubs got only 7 hits while the Dodgers made 11 off Bob Rush, Roy Campanella batting in 2 runs to lead the attack. Gene Hermanski stole home in the 4th after getting a double. The victory moved the Dodgers to within 6i games of the first place Braves. In Barney's 4 complete game victories, he yielded 7 runs for an average of 1.75 per game, 21 hits for a 5.25 mark and struck out 22 batters. Most important of all—he walked only 10. Cincy Blasts Braves The pace-setting Braves dropped their 2nd straight game, 9-6 as the Reds outslugged them in a battle of home runs at Cincinnati. Route clouts by Johnny Wyrostek, with 2 men aboard, and by Danny Litwhile, sparked a 5-run Red rally in the 6th. Cincinnati picked up 3 more in the 7th, 2 on a homer by Ted Kluszewski. Tommy Holmes and Jeff Heath hit homers for the Braves. Litwhiler got 4 hits to lead the 13-hit Cincy attack. The Pittsburgh Pirates, behind 7-hit pitching by Bob Chesnes, lambasted the Philadelphia Phils 11-2 in a Pittsburgh night game. Big Look Lead The triumph marks Spencer's 6th victory against a lone set back in league competition. Mason City now has 5 wins as opposed to 3 losses in loop play. The Cardinals are the current league pace set-, ters with a healthy .857 percentage mark. The winners jumped into a 4 run margin in the bottom half of the 1st frame. Ed Hoffman, Jim Fanning, Bill Burgess, Roy Ross, Sam House and Joe Burgoyne each collected safeties to account Legionnaires to Play VFW Under Lights The Mason City Legionnaires, who seem to do all right on the baseball field until they play Spencer, meet the Mason City V. F: W. team Wednesday night at Roosevelt field at 8:30. The pitching choice of Manager Don Blanchard is uncertain and will be picked from Mike Lloyd, Harold Kornbaum and Jim Hogue. The Legionnaires have a record of 18 victories and 5 defeats for the season. Manager John Benn of the V. F.

Spencer added 2 more markers in the 3rd inning on 3 consecutive hits to assume a 6-0 command. Lone Legionnaire Run The Legionnaires notched their lone tally in the top half of the 4th. Paul Bruns slammed a double to deep left center field, moved to 3rd on Bob Barracks' infield retirement and scored on Leo Fleming's ground out. The not-to-be-denied Cardinals scored a run in the t5h frame and 2 more in the bottom of the 6th to forge into an overwhelming 9-1 margin. Spencer capped their scoring drive in the 7th as they fashioned a 2 run splurge on 4 hits to acquire their winning 11-1 margin. Jim Fanning and Roy Ross paced the Spencer hit parade as each laced 4 hits in 5 official appearances at the plate. Paul Bruns, Bob Barracks and Mully Fredricks each collected a pair of bingles for the Legionnaires. In the ninth, veteran Hobert Duncan collected his 2nd successive hit of the season in a pinch hitter's role. The boxscorc: MASON CITY—1. Hcnely, 2b DIMarco, :)b Blanchard, ss ...

Mangrum, former U. S. Open champion from Niles, 111,, regained the lead in the greenback race when he picked up $1,275 in last week's Dapper Dan invitation tournament at Pittsburgh. He now has a 1948 total of $20,421.99 as against Hogan's $20,197.56. Hogan, Hershey, Pa., golf master, passed up the Dapper Dan and has been resting for this $15,000 2nd annual Reading Open over the rolling 6,740-yard Berkshire country club course. Hogan, U. S. Open and PGA champion, will be making one of his infrequent appearances in his adopted stale. The native Texan will have to be in top form to take down prize money as most of the nation's first flight golfers will be in the 4-day 72 hole competition. More than 150 linksmen, including E. J. Dutch Harrison, Little Rock, Ark., defending champion, will tee off in the first round. Harrison fired a 7-under- par 277 in winning last year's first prize money. Fielding was very spotty on the part of both clubs. Chambers was charged with 6 errors in the game while Mason City committed 4 bobbles. Murr had his fast ball working well and registered 16 strikeouts in the game. An error and Bernard Bennett's triple gave the winners a 1-0 lead in the first inning and 2 singles, a pair of walks and an error permitted Mason City to go in front 4-0 after 2 innings of play. Chambers made a run in the 3rd and got their final marker in the 5th on errors by Glen Edgington and Bud Berger. 6th Frame Splurge The game was sewed up in the 6th inning with a 4-run splurge by the local club. A walk, 3 singles and 3 errors contributed to the -run making off Pitcher Rex Reuther, who hurled all the way for the losers. Mason City collected 7 hits in the game. The victory was the 23rd for the Mason City club as against 3 defeats while it was the 6th setback for Chambers in 17 games this season. The win was also the 9th consecutive for the Mason City Juniors. The boxscore: CHAMBERS—2 AR R H PO A Nenry, 2b . 4 « « 1 0 Hockmuth, 2b 30101 Cook, Sb '- « 0 4 1 Donovan, rf ! 0 0 0 0 Gitliens.
