Sports Roundup — Mathews Challenges By GAYI.E TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) — From what has been seen of him around liore the- past few days, Ed Mathews of the Milwaukee Braves is ready right now" to step up and challenge Mickey Mantle's right to be called the most sensational young player in baseball today. The kid third baseman is in the league training before they became ' big league regulars last season. Each of them led his league in striking out last .season, Mathews whiffing 115 times and Mantle 111. Playing with a lifeless club in Boston, Mathews hit o nly in streaks and closed with an unimpressive .2-12 average. Mickey, surrounded by champions, posted a .311 mark. MfUhcw.s freely attributes his great improvement to playing before Milwaukee's idolatrous fans. Matched in Fielding; As of this writing the Milwaukee midst of a terrific hitting streak that has carried him to the top, or near the top, in , almost every slugging department in the National League. The power in his bat has done more than anything else to convince the eastern half of the circuit finally that the Braves are a genuine pennant threat. There's a popular belief that Mantle will finish the season leading the American League in practically everything. That would be a World Series worth seeing if the two glamorous sophomores should wind up battling one another for individual honors in the playoff while Milwaukee goes completely demented. Amazing Parallel There is an amazing parallel oetween the two most exciting youngsters to hit the big top in recent years. For one thing, their birth dates are only a week apart, Mickey the Yank being that much younger than his rival. Mathews was born Oct. 13, 1931, at Texarkana, Tex. Mickey came into the world seven days later at Commerce, Okla., in the same general neck of the woods. Each of them entered organized ball in 1949 and had enjoyed approximately the same minor TV and RADIO SERVICE Irons and Small Appliances Repaired Sonny Mothis ADAMS APPLIANCE CO. 206 W.

Unlike Mantle, who hits with about, equal power from either side of the plate, Mathews Is strictly a lefty swinger. While his speed has not been compared to that of Mantle, who reputedly gets to first faster than any other' player in the game, the Braves phcnoni is fur from slow. In Holding skill Mathews is fully n match for the marvelous Oklahoman this year. Frankly, he wasn't last season.

PHYSICAL. m COM POLITE OFF THfcM/TOO ' :SL Will Appeal Trautman's Ruling HELENA, Ark. (AP) — The Executive Committee of he National Association of Professional Minor Baseball eagues will be asked to rule on a forfeited game in t h e otton States League which grew out of Hot Springs' at- empted use of a Negro pitcher. Minor League Boss George rautman last Saturday disallowed le game forfeited to Jackson over ot Springs. Trautman said the ame was invalid because color nes entered Into the decision. He dded that no league can prevent player from being used because his race, creed or color. But Al Hnraway, president of the otton States League, said here last ght that "Trautman's decision 11 be appealed to the Executive ommittee of the National Asso- atlon of Professional Minor cagues." In handing down the decision, •autman contended the forfeiture based on the fact that Hot irings had put Jim Tugerson, a egro pitcher, on the club roster. Charges Violation Haraway ordered the May 20 me forfeited because of what described as Hot Springs' viola- on of an agreement with the rest the league not tt use the Florae Villa, Fla., Negro brothers, Jim id Leander Tugerson. Hot Springs originally purchased e Tugersons from the Indianapo- Clowns of the Negro American lague. When the rest of the league ejected and voted to oust Hot jrings, the Bathers got a favor- able ruling from Trautman. But rather than take the chance of disrupting the Class C circuit, the Bathers optioned the Tugersons to Knoxville of the Class D Mountain States League. Hat 10-3 Record After a run of poor attendance and second division status, Hot Springs recalled Jim Tugerson and attempted to pitch him May 20. Haraway stepped in and forfeited the game. Hot Springs once again returned Tugerson to Knoxville, where he has posted a 10-3 record. After Trautman's most recent ruling, Hot Springs officials Indicated they may elect to again recall Jim Tugerson. In announcing the decision to appeal, Haraway branded as untrue reports he would resign as a result of the Inter league squabble. Haraway, in a companion announcement, said the league's Ail- Star game will go on as scheduled at Hot Springs July 13. Haraway said the host of ralnouts early in the season would have to be made up through doubleheaders and open dates. Read Courier News Classified Ads.

N. J. UPj —Mon- louth Park's "Salvator Mile", one f 18 stakes events on the 1953 rac- ng schedule, honors one of Monmouth's mightiest thoroughbreds. Juring three years of campaigning, Salvator was defeated only three imes. He proved his mettle in 1890 vhen he raced a mile against time ver the Monmouth straightaway to stablish a speed mark for the dis- ance of l:35Vi. Lions Shutout Legion in LL The Lions Club passed its first major test of the 1958 season and with flying colors by disposing of an aroused American Legion, 5-0, Tuesday afternoon, to take temporary possession of first place in the Little League. In hanging up the campaign's in- catch ot Killett's low liner in th« itial shutout, Joe Bratcher. Lion ace, shaded Glynn Dale Howard, his southpaw rival, in a fast and exciting pitchers' battle. In total hits the two stars were all even at three apiece, but one of the Lions' blows was a rousing three-run homer by Larry Fitzgerald, ons of Mr. anc Mrs. W. F. Fitzgerald, that sewed up the game in the explosive fifth. Young Bratcher fanned 11 with faultless control, while the Yarbro lefty racked up five strikeouts walked one and plunked a batter. It was a scoreless duel until the fifth when the roo'f caved Glynn Dale. As far as earned runs were concerned the contest shoulc have progressed farther, since al Lion runs were made after the side should have been retired. Neither threatened seriously before the exlosion. although both senl runners as far as third in both lalves of the second. In the upper half DOUET Dorris was safe on Jimmy Killett's fumble. Bratcher bore down and fanned Bob Peek and Don Bunch. Jerry Rounsavall singled to eft, sending Dorris racing to third But Lovelace fanned. Outburst in Fifth Fitzgerald singled sharply to cen- ,er and was nearly trapped off first as Dorris spearel Bratcher's liner. 'itzgerald legged it on to third as Dorris fumbled Bill Simmon's slow ap then threw badlp to second. Howard choked off the threat by vhlffing Tommy Seay and Billy Nelson. Then came the deciding outburst. Nelson started it quite inauEpiciously vith a strikeout, but Jesse Raspberry ived on Billy Hatch's error. Frank Alford was safe when Peek failed o find a handle on his grounder s Raspberry took third. Danny rtorris caught a pitch on his left eg. filling the bases. Killett, son of 'immy Killett, Luxora third base- nan, and Mrs. Killett, smote one to enter scoring Raspberry and Alord, with Morris moving on over third. Fitzgerald cleaned the :>ases with his tremendous sock past 'ohnny Plunkett in centerfield. Bratcher locked the door and hrew away the key in the top half f the sixth, by disposing of Bob Vhite on a grounder to Simmons at hird. then blazed the ball past loward and Dorris for consecutive trikeouts.
