Ttaason City collected a single run' in their half of the 4th inning. Gus DiMarco slammed a double and scored on Lloyd's 2 baser.

The Packers notched a run in the bottom half of the 6th on 3 successive singles. The Mason City attack produced 4 counters in the top of the 9th inning.

His Giants were rained out at Pittsburgh. Cards Win 8-2; Feller Routed as A's Go 10-5 By MILTON RICHMAN United Press Sports Writer New York, (U.R)—Burt Shotton, the new Dodger manager, was beginning to feel at home Saturday with one victory under his belt and a familiar Brooklyn baseball cap on his head. The 63 year old Shotton, who led Brooklyn to a pennant last year and gave way to Leo Durocher at the beginning of the current campaign, took up Friday almost exactly where he left off lust October. Bossing the Dodgers from the bench in civilian clothes and a Brooklyn baseball cap, the grey haired pilot led his charges to a dramatic 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Takes Rally to Do It Trailing 2-1 going into the 8th, the Dodgers touted gangling Ewell Blackwell with a 3 run burst which sewed up the first 1948 triumph for their new manager. The Dodgers thus walked off the field an inning later with their 10th victory in 12 starts. Joe Hatten of Bancroft, Iowa, was the winner and Blackwell the loser. Grady Hatton of the Reds and Gene Germanski of the Dodgers each hit homeruns. Pros Look for Big Turnout for 1948 City Golf Tourney Given the green light by the weatherman this year, Mason City golfers have been turning out in larger numbers and shooting low scores, opine both Curly Hartman, country club pro, and Neil Plopper, pro at the Legion Community golf course. That's the reason the pros believe the upcoming Mason City city golf title race will attract a huge turnout. Qualifying rounds begin on the country club course Sunday. Hartman said players may start qualifying anytime Sunday after filing formal entry at the pro shop and have through Friday to get their 18-hole scores in. Players must designate which round they intend to use as a qualifying 18 before starting over the part 71 layout. It will depend on the number of entries, but a 32-rnan championship flight is a good possibility, Hartman stated, and there will be a championship consolation bracket for first round match losers. Practice rounds will be played anytime through Friday by nonmembers of the country club for §1 green fees. BY HUGH FITLLERTON, JR.

The Braves Win league-leading Boston Public Links Tourney Opens 200 Seek Title Held by Wilfrid Crossley Atlanta, Ga., (U.R)—More than 200 of the nation's best weekend O olfcrs, the amateurs who pay for each round they shoot, commenced -m assault on par Saturday in the 23rd annual national public links ournament, and defending champion Wilfrid Crossley was the man :o beat. The first 2 days will be devoted to picking the team champion, but starting Monday, it's every golfer for himself as match play gels underway in a wecklong tournament. The team championship will be decided by 3 combined medal scores for each city contingent and the links-birds who saw the boys shoot practice rounds believed Los Angeles would supplant Atlanta as team champion. Crossley, now of New York City, but who 'led Atlanta to the title last year in Minneapolis, figured to meet his sternest competition from 2 former champions, Bobbie Clark, Jr., of St. Paul and Andy Szwedke of Pittsburgh. And while rain may fall clown on the spacious North Fulton course just as it did last year, the smooth-putting Crossley was the favorite, rain, or shine. Braves stretched their first place margin to 6\ games by coming from behind 3 times to beat the Chicago Cubs 12-10. It was Boston's 6th straight victory. Phil M"asi and Earl Torgeson hit homers 1'or Boston and Andy Paf- ko and Bob Scheffing had round trippers for Chicago.

Durocher, the former Brooklyn pilot, is shown in the Giants' office, where Ott will get a new appointment, as Horace Stoneham, club president, looks on. Giants to Try a Visit to Flatbush July 26 By JOE REICHLER New York, (/P)—Still flabbergasted by the greatest managerial shakeup in major league history, baseball followers Saturday were speculating, "where do the Giants and Dodgers- go from here in the flag chase?" Will swashbuckling Leo Durocher, who supplanted mild Mel Ott as manager of the New York Giants, make the heavy hilling but weak pitching Polo Grounders a more formidable pennant threat?

BANCROFT vs. ROCKWELL inlo Ihe heretofore colorless, dead panned Giants? To Repeat Miracle? On the other hand, will Ihe 63 year old Burt Shotton, who replaced Durocher at the Brooklyn Dodger helm, repeat his "miracle of 1947?" Can the snow lhatchcd, uniformless taclician steer the 4lh place Brooks lo the top of the National league, thus duplicating his brilliant achievement of last year? Those and other questions won't be answered for several months, but the general feeling is that both clubs will be helped tremendously by Ihe 2-ply change. Meet July 26 The first scheduled meeting of the 2 teams under their new managers is slated for July 26 at Brooklyn. Little comment has been offered over the supplanting of Ben Chapman by Allen "Dusty" Cooke as manager of the Philadelphia Phils. The Chapman-Cooke announcement Friday was practically blacked out by the startling news of the across-thc-river deal between those bitter interborough New York rivals. Cooke, hired as trainer last spring, will be a "temporary manager" only. He is expected to yield the reins when a permanent one is named by President Bob Carpenter. Most Fantastic The switch from Ott to Durocher is easily the most fantaslic shuffle in Giant history. It is generally agreed that his new assignment is the toughest job in Durocher's career. Not only must Leo produce at the Polo Grounds, but his managerial abiJ- ity will be judged on what o*ccurs in Brooklyn the balance of the season. Should Shotton lead Brooklyn to the flag, Leo's stock will drop considerably. Leo also will have the added burden of swinging the Giants over to his way of playing. His handling of men may inspire the Giants or it may create resentment. It may take the Giants some time to become accustomed to Durocher. Paradoxically, it is probable that Brooklyn fans ana players will be pleased about Shotton's relujrn. Burt was an unknown man when he joined the Dodgers a year ago last April, but his retiring ways and his strong pennant crusade made Dodger patrons turn lo him like a great protector. Shollon's task, it Js believed, not nearly as difficult as Durocher's. Shotton knows the Dodgers as well as Durocher. Dodgers High Also Ihe Dodgers have been riding, high in recent weeks. In last place on July 3, the Brooks have climbed inlo 4th position in 2 weeks. On Ihe olhcr hand, the Giants have been descending steadily. In 3rd place 3 weeks ago, they are now in the 2nd division, having lost 11 of their last 17 games. It is certain lhat Ott will be missed at the Polo Grounds. Ever since Mel broke in as a 16 year old under McGraw, he has been an idol of the fans. Ott, plainly crestfallen over the latest turn of events, was asked whether he suggested Durocher as his successor. He replied lhat "Stoneham would have to answer that." Stoneham insisted that Durocher was his first choice to succeed Ott. He said the entire deal took only 24 hours to consummate. He said he chanced a discussion with Rickey because "I felt thai something was going on in Brooklyn with Durocher." New Deputy Sheriff Title for Joe Louis Detroit, (U.R)—World's heavyweight, champion Joe Louis Saturday was sworn in as special deputy sheriff in Wayne county by Sheriff Edward Bchrcndt. Louis becomes one of only 10 such deputies in Ihe history of the office. Sheriff Bohronclt said Joe was given this honorary appointment because of his nation-wide recognition as a leader among his race and because he is especially admired by the young people. He has been asked to take the job of organizing a junior deputy program among the young boys of his race in Ihe county. The sheriff said he feels the champ will have an invaluable influence in combatting juvenile delinquency and in teaching the young people of his race respect for the law. AH smiles, Joe said, "II is a great honor; I will do my best."
