'Ltu& HAivLrUxtD UAllA CUUKAiii': MUmJAi, JUjnK 21, 1948. Kramer Subdues Riggs In Four Sets To Capture Professional Net Crown Forest Hills, New York., June 20. (UP.) Jack Kramer battered Bobby Riggs down to size in an hour-long; first set and then kept the pressure going full blast the rest of the way to win the national professional tennis championship today, 14-12, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. Riggs blew a 5-3 lead in that all-telling opening set, and after that he was licked, showing obvious fatigue even though he did manage to rally to win the third set. v The victory for Kramer, dethroning Riggs from the title he won by downing Don Budge last year, came as no great surprise, for the big, booming belter from Montebelle, Calif., had taught the cocky little Bobby many a tennis lesson on their national-wide tour. But few expected Kramer to win so handily. Even Riggs' serv ice, which he used to score 20 aces against Frank Kovacs in the semifinals yesterday, failed him. lie aced Kramer seven times to day. Riggs led in games, 5-3, and had a 40-15 edge in the' ninth game in that vital openine set when Kramer caught fire. Jack forced the game to deuce and then pulled the set out of the fire when he sent one, long placement down the sideline and then Riggs double-faulted. They alternated the rest of the way to the 25th game when Kramer finally broke through Riggs' service, to set up victory.- Kramer breezed to the second set win in 19 minutes, but the last point of the seventh game raised a hue and cry unusual in the cathedral hush of Forest Hills. Riggs' ball clearly raised chalk dust on the backline, but the line man called it "out" and Kramer got the point and the game. The gallery booed and Riggs showed his obvious disgust as he changed courts. Riggs rallied to take the third set, cashing in on some Kramer errors including a douDie-rauit on set point. But Jack came back in the final set, and Riggs obviously was out of the race. Kramer broke his service in the fourth game to take 3-1 lead, and then broke through again in the eighth after he lost his own in the seventh. The ninth game went to deuce twice, and then Kramer ended it all with a deep cross-court shot that Riggs smashed into the net with his forehand. Kramer also was crowned doubles champion when he and Francisco (Pancho) Segura, of Ecuador rallied to take three straight sets and win 4-6. 5-7, 6-2. 7-5, 8-6, over Riggs and Budge, 'the defending champs. Blue Sox 9-5, Pioneers 3-6 Elmlra. N. Y- June 20. (AP.)-The Ehn'.ra Pioneers came from behind in the last of the seventh to down Utlca, 6-5, and gain an even split with the Blue Sox In today's doubleheader before close to 3000 fans at Dunn Field.

Veteran Players Steal Scenes At Bulkeley Stadium Baseball stars of another day honored Leon W. Parker, connected with the game for 50 years, yesterday at Bulkeley Stadium and then showed some 800 fans fleeting glimpses of oldtime skill in a thoroughly enjoyable three-inning game that preceded, a drab contest between the Hartford Indians and the Brooklyn Negro Dodgers. The occasion for the appearance of the veteran daimond stars was the Abner Doubleday birthday celebration. Al Kamm, of the Veteran Baseball Players Association, presented a testimonial scroll to Parker in ceremonies at home plate before the game between the Yesteryear Stars and the Old Timers. Other speakers were Thomas J. Kerrigan, representing Mayor Coleman, Charlie Bloss-field of the Hartford Chiefs and Harry N. Anderson. The Old Timers, belting and bunting "youngster" Sam Hyman to the delight of the crowd, won the game by 6 to 4. Bill Quinn's daring on the base paths highlighted the contest and the well-known local arbiter also took part in a double play when Ed Case snared a hot line drive in center-field and threw to second to double a runner. Biggest hit of the contest, besides a disastrous pinch-running chore by George C. Hadley, the world's champion walker, was Pat Pinchera's double to right field. Hyman pitched for the Stars with Spike Repass catching after Charlie Palmberg split a finger on Sam's first warmup pitch. Rev. Karl Blake and George Woods comprised the Old Timers battery. 'The umpires were Herman Bronkie, Bud Mahon and Marty Connor. Iri the regulation contest, the Indians finally got to meet the Dodgers and found the Brooklyn club easy pickings, winning 11 to 1 behind Bob Kelly's six-hit fing-ing. The Indians play the New York Black Yankees Thursday night at the Stadium.

(AP.) In one of golf's greatest one-man shows, methodical Bobby Locke hammered a final round 66 today for a 72-hole total of 266, 18 under Midlothian's pap and a winning margin of 16 strokes over Ellsworth Vines in -the $15,000 Chicago Victory open golf tournament. The victory margin which brought the putting master a $2000 first prize was the greatest in three years of PGA sponsored major tournaments. Ben Hogan shot a 261 to win the Portland, Ore., open in 1946 with a 17 stroke margin over second place Byron Nelson.- Hogan's 23-under-par tally in the Portland tourney stands as one of the greatest wmdups in golf, although Nelson in the same year won the Seattle open with 259. Both courses, however, are not regarded by veteran , tournament campaigners anywhere near the test of Midlothian's 6587-yard par 35-3671 landscape. Although this yardage is comparatively small, the : exceptionally tricky greens, narrow and liberally trapped fairways make up the difference. Dutch Harrison who finished down the list with 295, voiced the opinion of most of the pros that Locke's 266 total on a course as tough as Midlothian ranks with the greatest tournament scores ever turned in. Vines, who registers out of Chicago, fashioned a 66 today to vault into second place with 282, beating par by only two strokes. He collected $1400 second money. Skip Alexander of Lexington, N. C- finished with a 70 for a 283 and third place, worth $1000. Johnny Bulla of Phoenix was fourth with a 71 for 284. George Fazio of Conshocken, Pa.; Jimmy Walkup of Chicago, Dick Metz or Arkan sas City, Kas., and Jim Ferrier of San Francisco were grouped at 285. New England Pitchers . Signed by Cincinnati Boston, June 20. (AP.) The Cincinnati Reds announced the signing of two youthful New England right handed pitchers. Gabe Paul, assistant to Reds' president Powell Crossley, reported that Joe Trimble, Jr., 17. of Providence, R. I., was signed to a Tulsa contract and assigned to Providence of the New England League. Dave Anderson, 18, of Abington, Mass., was signed to hurl for Sun-burry, Pa., of the Interstate League. Trimble won seven games and lost none for La Salle (Providence) Academy this season. Anderson won eight and lost two this year for Abington High School where his record was 32-7 in four years. ADVERTISEMENT "Cant wait to set home to Hnir.r Hare's a tin for tHW WnH'. Mnm 'em home!

A 14-years-old Wethersfield schoolboy, competing 'in the event for the first time, piloted his red and blue racer to a spectacular triumph in the annual Greater Hartford Soap Box Derby this afternoon. He is Kirk Watson, a slim youngster who made his speedway bow on what proved to be a record-breaking occasion. New highs were achieved in both the entry list and number of spectators today, with more than 100 contestants vying for top honors on the 1000 foot Nott Street course. Captain Ralph Buckley, head of the State Police traffic division, estimated the crowd at 10,000 far and away the greatest throng this yearly fixture has ever attracted. Despite a broiling sun which pushed the temperature up to 79 degrees, the huge outpouring of fans jammed the entire area and all the side streets leading to the hill. ' Watson nosed out Art Genslar, 12-years-old West Hartford boy. in the championship final. Kirk qualified for the title heat by surviving the Class A eliminations, while Art topped the Class B field. After a nip-and-tuck begin ning, Watson edged out in front Ilat- - . Kamp Too Fast. Watson's other winning times were :38.7, :38.3, :38.1 and 37.9. while Gensler advanced to the final clockings of :37.9 (off the WQn heats m .333 tnen :38.0 and it took Watson's :37.9 in. the Class A final to send him to the sidelines. The day's best time was . th :37.6 turned in by Roger Horen-stein of Hartford in the Class B first elimination race and was off a starting ramp. That device was latter eliminated, however, as it was felt the boys' speed was too great. The fastest clocking recorded after that was the :37.9 with which Watson won the day's finale. - . Watson, who will be a high school freshman in the fall, will now represent Hartford in the national soap box derby at Akron. Ohio. August 15. The other heat victors will share in the lesser prize loot which has a total value of $1000. To Have 'Dog' Feast. It took Kirk six weeks to build his winning racer. He constructed, tore down and then built again several times before being, satis- fied with the finished product. His $25, and this was sponsored by a Wethersfield store. He will also have "all the hot dogs he can eat for one week." This offer was made to him before the race by a hot dog stand operator on the Berlin Turnpike, and was contingent on his winning the event. Kirk's home is only a short distance from Nott Hill, and he was one of the few entrants to push his own car to the site of the races. "I was sure surprised wjien I won the qualifying race," he later confessed, "and I just couldn't believe it when I reached the semi-finals. And then when I won the big prize, I . . . well, I was just overwhelmed." Derby officials, who clocked the racers in trial runs, reported that the speediest cars reached "a maximum of 30 miles an hour. First Elimination Heats. Class A winners: Ted Steinetz.
