Tribe, Braves Tough on Road Legionnaires Get 7-3 Victory By RICK MEREDITH Sports Writer A season's record throng of 2,200 jammed Roosevelt field Wednesday night to watch the determined Mason City Legionnaires * build their latest win streak to 3 !'at the expense of the Van Dyke's Colored House of David club, 7-3. ; The boys in beards provided 'the entertainment in the form of a pepper-rPlaying quartet and their rocking chair catcher, but it was the Legionnaires who peppered .the ball most successfully. . Manager Alec Radcliff, "Dick N e w b e r r y, Collins Jones and George Williams livened the 7th inning stretch with their pepper, using most of the movable joints from head to foot and back again. And some of the older fans in the stands thought they might still be playing after watching Odell Livingston handle his 8th inning .backstop chores in a rocking chair. Hogue Has 3-Hitter • But at the plate the Van Dyke's had little time for showmanship. Jim Hogue flung a masterful 3- hitter at them and whiffed 7 along the way. Meanwhile he had strong support from an 11-hit Legionnaire attack. Including the 2 Davenport games, the locals have rung out 40 hits in their last 3 outings. Pitcher Lefty Peechers, the Show Boat of the House of David mound staff, tossed a tantalizing curve but it didn't break sharp enough to keep the Legionnaires' big guns from moving in. 3 Runs in 2nd '' After a scoreless first, the hosts got to Peechers for 3 straight bin- gles in the 2nd. Paul Bruns bunted down the 3rd base line and was driven in when Bob Barracks whacked a triple that flirted with the centerfield canvas. Next up, Mike Lloyd singled. Barracks scored after Duane Jewell's outfield fly and Hogue's deep double counted Lloyd. That was the big Mason City inning. Hogue gave up harmless singles in the 2nd and 4th. Then Van Dyke's Ernie Johnson, a gangling lefthanded hitter with an unorthodox stance, came up in the 5th and belted one. It cleared the rightfield canvas for one of -the longest homers to be,hit in that direction at Roosevelt field. Fortunately Johnson was leading off. Bruns Triples Mason City was back for a pair in their half of the 5th on 3 hits. Henely singled and pilfered 2nd. Blanchard cracked a liner which was slowed backhanded by the shortstop but Henely was in. Bruns tripled to get Blanchard across. Lu Diaz counted for the Legionnaires in the 6th. on a walk, a passed ball and a error at 3rd as Jim Hogue's smash rolled through Boyd Beckwith. Barracks started off the 8th with a single and was sent in on one by Henely. Henely made 2 fine fielding plays look like easy assists for putouts in the 7th and Hogue got by the 8th though he hit a batter and Gus DiMarco was charged with "an infield error. The Van Dyke's pushed over 2 in the 9th when Hogue gave the first of 2 walks and hit another batter. Jones, after a long fly, crossed the plate with the sacks loaded and one out. Henry Newberry followed him while Beckwith was being trapped between 1st and 2nd. Richard Newberry, who was hit on the head in the 8th by a pitch, was reported in good condition after the game. #The Boxscore FIGHT RESULTS Oakland, Cal.—Earl Turner, 148, Rich- tnoiid, Cal., knocked out George "Sugar" Costner, 148, Cincinnati, 8.

Junior Legion Breaks Austin Ties by 5-4 By HOBERT DUNCAN.JR. Globe-Gazette Sports Writer Austin — After 2 indecisive tie ;ames in previous meetings, the /tason City Junior Legion shaded Austin 5-4 here Wednesday evening to set the stage for an antici- ated excellent game pitting these evenly matched clubs on Roose- 'elt diamond Thursday night under the lights. The 2 teams battled to a 10 in- ling 1-1 draw in their 1st en- ounter of the season and an 8 nning 3-3 stalemate in the 2nd meeting of the campaign. Bunch Hits The winners effectively bunched 6 hits from the offerings of Southpaw Bob Dunfee Wednesday while Austin collected 10 safeties from he combined efforts of Bill Postma and Jim VerHelst. The losers jumped into a one run margin the first frame as lead ff man Roy Baumgartner col- ected an infield single, advanced o 2nd on a misplay and scored on Bud Berger's error. Austin Leads 2-0 Austin increased their edge^ in he bottom half of the 3rd inning on a single, a 2-ply blow, and an nfield retirement to assume a jhort lived 2-0 command. Mason City knotted the tally in he top of the 4th. After Berger and Murr had been retired, Bernard Bennett hit safely and Ray rlolder slammed a long fly to right center field for a homerun. Mason City counted a pair of uns in the 5th on a hit batsmen, a free pass, a wild pitch, and Berger's single to jump into a 4-2 edge. Holder Blasts Another The victors scored what proved :o be the winning tally in the 6th frame. Ray Holder doubled to deep left field, and scored on 3rd Baseman Ricky Hubbard's erratic hrow to 1st attempting to retire John Colloton. Austin fashioned a 2 run onslaught in the last of the 7th inning on 3 singles and a pair of Masun City fielding lapses to reduce the deficit to a single run. Jim VerHelst terminated the threat and the game by retiring rival hurier Dunfee via the strikeout route. Bennett and Holder paced the Mason City hit parade with a pair of hits apiece, while Dick Shipe, lard hitting Austin first sacker. collected 3 bingles in 4 official appearances at the plate to lead the loser's 10 hit attack.

As the majors resumed activity after a 3-day lull for the All-Star game, a survey showed both the American and National league leaders have won more games on the road than at home. Invading Philadelphia for a twilight-night doubleheader with Connie Mack's amazing Athletics, Cleveland boasted a remarkable .758 percentage on foreign fields.

AMERICAN LEAGUE , ON ROAD AT HOME Sports Parade— Fraley Follows Olympic Bets, One Still Needs Citizenship July 15, 1948 IS Maton City Globc»G»iettc, MM*B Cliy, b. Lesnevich Clambers for Walcott Bout to Get Vacant Title Brighton, England, (fP) — Gus Lesnevich thiinks he and Jersey Joe Walcott should fight for the vacant world heavyweight title, and never mind about an elimination contest. The 175 - pound king, who ; is training here for a title bout with Freddie Mills at London on July 26, feels the issue is clear cut. "I knocked out the 2 top heavyweight contenders, Mello Bettina and Tami Mauriello," he pointed out. "At least, they were listed No. 1 and No. 2 when I stopped them. "That should qualify me. Walcott was considered good enough to fight Joe Louis twice for the championship. Obviously, they thought he was the best challenger available. "All right, who else is there? Ezzard Charles? I personally feel that Charles hasn't yet proved he can whip heavyweights. Elmer Violent Ray was the only one he ever beat who amounted to anything." Gus doesn't say he will not compete in an elimination. He wants the heavy crown, whatever he has to do to get it. But he doesn't think such a tournament would amount to much, for lack of good men. "If the New York commission should sanction it, and I should win, what would I be then?" he asked. "Champion of New York state—that's all. New York and the National Boxing association would have to sanction it together to make it worth while—and when did they ever agree?" By OSCAR FRALEY United Press Sports Writer New-York, (U.R)—They were a band of which the United States could be proud—young, strong and confident of victory—as they stood under a hot sun on the afterdeck of the S. S. America and started their Olympic odyssey. They began arriving early and were milling about in a quaint mixture — lissome swimmers, burly weight-lifters, towering basketball players, flat-nosed fighters and tam.ed track men. Up and Down Bob Kurland, the Oklahoma basketball player who stands 7 feet tall, posed with Joe Dipietro, a bantamweight wrestler from Paterson, N. J., who is only 4 feet, 8 inches. Both of them grinned happily and shook hands like old friends. The girl swimmers slipped off their shoes and walked about contentedly. : Only 17-year-old Bob Mathias of Tulare, Cal., a decathlon contestant, got black looks from the photogs. He refused to pose for pictures. But on the whole, everybody was supremely happy. The California crew couldn't even worry about a 9-inch dent in their shell. Clyde (Smackover) Scott, the Arkansas hurdler, predicted a sweep in the 110-meter hurdles. He figured modestly that some of the timber toppers left at home Sports Calendar penses. Dave Turner of the California crew tried to say a few words but was interrupted by the blast of the liner's whistle. Taking Bows Bud Browning, the basketball coach took a bow along with Swimmer Ann Curtis, Discus Man Fortune Gordien, Javelin Star Steve Seymour, Broadjumper Willie Steele and Runners Browning Ross, Roland Sink and Cliff Bourland. Jack Kelly, the diamond scul champ, stood along the rail. But most of the interest in that quarter went to his curvaceous blond sister, Grace. But Ernest Weber, one of our 10,000-meter walkers, wasn't there. He doesn't get his final citizenship papers until Friday. Then he'll fly over. . Still, it was quite a boatload of specialized muscles! EAGAN TO GO ABROAD New York, (U.R) — Col. Edward P. F. Eagan, chairman of the New York state boxing commission, Thursday hurried plans for a "good-will and information" visit to Europe this summer. The trip, approved by Gov.
