Braves Crush Phils as Dark Leads Way Ewell Ties 100 Meter Dash Mark — _ _. __. _ J-, Scores Upset Over Patton AP Wirephoto WIN PLACES ON U. S. OLYMPIC TEAM—Zoe Ann Olson, Vicki Draves and Pat Elsener (left to right)—all Californians although Miss Olson is a native of LaPorte City, Iowa—are pictured after they won places on the American Olympic team in springboard diving trials at Detroit Friday. The transplanted lowan took first and is a strong bet to win at the London Olympics. Ann Curtis took the *£Q£nen's 100-meter free style event and 17-year-old Jimmy McLane of Akron scored an upset over Ohio State's Bill Smith to grab top honors in the men's 400-meter race. Iowa College Conference uivided Into 2 Divisions Des Moines, (U.R)—The ungainly* 13 member Iowa conference was cut in half here Friday at a meeting of faculty representatives. From now on the conference will compete in divisions 1 and 2, generally on a geographical basis with the exceptions of Loras and Dubuque, the league's leading powerhouses. Both are in the same city, but Loras will compete in division 1 and Dubuque in division 2. With Loras will be Luther, Upper Iowa, Wartburg, Westmar and Buena Vista. With Dubuque will be Parsons, St. Ambrose of Davenport, Iowa Wesleya.ii, Central, Simpson and Penn. Effect of Split The split, on the basis of recent competition, would appear to make division 2 the stronger. St. Ambrose, Central, Simpson and Dubuque have been among the leaders of the conference in recent years, with Iowa Wesleyan and Parsons often in the role of up- yfetter. Loras completely dominates division 1, although Luther, Upper Iowa and Wartburg have been challengers in major sports, while Wartburg won last year's wrestling title. . Protests that Loras and St. Ambrose were getting too strong for the league, and competing in another conference besides, were overruled when the representatives voted against inviting the 2 to withdraw. To Start in 49-50 The split is scheduled to go into effect for football in the fall of 1950; for basketball, baseball and track during the 1949-50 seasons. Henceforth, to win a championship, each team must play at least 5 games of football in its division and 10 games of basketball. The champion must also meet every other member of the division at least once in basketball. The baseball champion musl have the best record in at least 6 games with teams in its division including at least one game with every other member. To Have Playoffs A playoff between the champions of each division will be scheduled at the end of each football, basketball and baseball season. In track, the 3 individua place winners at the divisiona meets will be eligible for the conference championships. The conference also, voted tha games between traditional foes such as Loras and St. Ambrose when each is a member of anothei division, will not count in the standings. Alexander Leads in Columbus Open Columbus, Ohio, (fP) — Stewart 'Skip" Alexander, 29 - year - old ex-army captain from Lexington, N. Car., is a double-barrelled lews-item-this weekend. Down in Knoxville, Tenn., papers will announce his approach- ng marriage (October) to Miss Kathleen Ann Reade. Papers are also announcing that the former Duke golf captain is the No. 1 man in the race for the third annual Columbus Open golf title. But Skip, sinking putts from By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Evanston, 111., (fi>) — Old-timer Barney Ewell, showing his heels to youngsters like Pell Mel Patton to win the 100 meter dash, went after a sweep in the sprints Saturday in the 200 meter feature of the qualifying round of the American Olympic track tryouts. The explosive triumph of the 31 year old Ewell over heavily- favored Patton topped the first round of the trials Friday night. The barrel-chested Negro whizzed through the 10 meters in 10.2 seconds to match the world record set by Jesse Owens of Ohio State in 1936 and equalled by Hal Davis of Southern California in 1941. Dillard Takes 3rd The former Penn State star, too young for the 1932 and 1936 Olympics, was considered possibly too old for the London games next month. He had been rated probably a 3rd in the 100 meter event. The favored Patton, labelled the "world's fastest human," got off to a slow start and never caught up. The Southern California Streak inched out Harrison Dillard of Baldwin-Wallace for 2nd. The surprise win by Ewell set up Saturday's 200 meter dash as the finale highlight. Eleven events, with the first 3 finishers in each winning an Olympic berth, are scheduled. Half of the team has now been determined. Ewell, Patton and Dillard gained 3 place by their 1-2-3 finish in the 100-meters. Ed Conwell of Jersey City, a close 4th, will probably be included also to round out the 400 meter relay team. Bill' Mathis, former University of Illinois sprinter, missed out when he pulled a leg muscle 5 yards from the tape and fell to the ground. Nineteen team members were decided plus 15 who had previously qualified in separately conducted trials in the 10,000 meter walk, 10,000 meter run, 50,000 meter walk, the marathon and decathlon. Other Selections Team members selected Friday night in addition to those in the 100 include, in order of their finish: 5,000 meter run—Curtis Stone, Philadelphia; Jerry Thompson, Texas; Clarence Robinson, Brigham Young. Time: 14:40.7. 400 meter hurdles—Roy Cochran, Los Angeles Athletic club; Richard Ault, Missouri: Jeff Kirk, Pennsylvania. Time, 51.7. Hammer throw—Bob Bennett, Apponaug, R.

Russia is not competing in the Olympics. The Moscow News said: "Exploitation of children is widely practiced in the United States and western Europe. A's Rally to Beat Bosox as Tribe Defeated By CARL LTJNDQUIST New York, (U.R) —Evea while hobbling around on a cane, Pep- perhead Eddie Stanky wielded a big influence in the pennant plans of the Boston Braves Saturday through his roommate and pal, kid shortstop Alvin Dark.

Last year with the Dodgers, he made a star pitcher out of his roommate Ralph Branca, building the big right hander's confidence and giving him the same tips that are going this year to Dark. Sain Wins No. 11 Friday night, while Stanky was "sitting it out," Dark hit safely in his 21st straight game, getting a triple, double, single and stealing home as the Braves crushed the Phils 13-2. Johnny Sain, under no pressure, gave up 12 hits as he scored his llth victory. Del Ennis hit a Philly homer. The Braves now lead by 3 £ games. The Cubs set back the 2nd place Pirates 2-1 at Chicago when Bill Nicholson hit his llth homer of the year with Andy Pafko on base in the 6th inning to send ace right hander Elmer Riddle down to his 4th loss against 9 wins.

Mason City's strong club downed New Hampton 8-0 behind the one hit pitching of Bill Postrna, Manly edged Charges City 7-4 and St. Lucas eliminated Independence 4-2. Saturday's pairings matched Mason City against Manly with St. Lucas against the winner of the Lansing-Osage game, which was also scheduled on Saturday. Finals were slated for Sunday afternoon. Mason City scored in only 2 innings against New Hampton with the game being wrapped up by a 6-run splurge in the 2nd frame. The winners got their other 2 markers in the 7th inning. Leo Chimbidis and Bernard Bennett A RECORD BREAKER—Darrow Hooper of North high school in Fort Worth, Texas, has pitched the 12-pound shotput 59' feet, 10& inches for a national interscholastic record.

According to the French newspaper Record, Australia will be represented at the Olympic games by a 13 year old, Marjorie Mackaway, and England by 14 year old Eleanor Gordon and 15 year old John Wadrope. "The national teams of many western European countries will evidently likewise include children whose sports careers are doomed to be crippled before they get a chance to mature." The newspaper pointed out that exploitation of child athletes was impossible by law in the USSR. While the Olympics are going on in England the USSR is going to see one of its greatest summer sports seasons. But it will be a season in which juveniles are forbidden to enter races or other events against adults. Sports authorities here estimate at least 2,000,000 youngsters, 14 to 18 years old, will take part in official sporting events.

The Manly club went into a 7-0 lead at the end of 4 innings and withstood a Charles City rally to win. The winners got 8 hits to 6 for Charles City. Bodensteiner, St. Lucas pitcher, gave up a pair of runs to Independence in the first inning and then pitched shutout ball the rest of the way. The game was tied 2-2 in the 4th and in the 5th frame Huinker homered to break the tie and give St. Lucas the victory. The boxscores: MASON CITY—B /\B H PO A D.

What effect the Spencer defeat * will have on the local club remains to be seen. Mason City didn't hit, the fielding left much to be desired and the pitchers were as wild as jungle tigers. Out to Make Amends But the game goes in the books as a single defeat, a bad one, "yes, but still just a single loss. The Legionnaires, with a record to back it up, still have a sound ball club and they'll be out to make amends against Davenport. The club will be bolstered this weekend with the addition of Pitcher Al DiMarco and Catcher Pewee Day. Both have played great ball this season and their absence in the mid-week games is noticeable. Al DiMarco will pitch one of the 2 games, probably the Sunday afternoon contest at 2:30. The starting hurler Saturday night at 8:30 is uncertain.

He pitched hitless ball after serving up a 3 run 4th inning homer to Walker Cooper and walked only 2 batters. Roy Campanella and Gene Hermanski hit homers to lead the 13 hit Dodger attack. Scheib's Hit Beats Bosox Pinchhitter Carl Scheib's double with 2 out in the 9th gave the Athletics an 8-7 victory over the Red Sox at Philadelphia and enabled Relief Pitcher Charley Harris, the winner, to gain revenge for being the victim of last Sunday's 14 run Boston inning. The A's had a big inning themselves Friday night, coming from behind with 6 runs in the Gth. Joe DiMaggio drove in 4 runs with his 19th homer and a single and Lefty Ed Lopat pitched 4 hit ball to win his 5th straight game and his 7th of the season as the Yankees defeated the Senators 9-0 at Washington. After 25 years of pitching, Negro Satchel Paige 'finally made his big league debut with 2 scoreless innings of relief work for the Indians in a lost cause as the Browns scored a 5-3 decision a Cleveland.

The 2 pitchers who will work against Mason City are Engles, formerly with Dallas in the Texas league, and Deitz, formerly with the Davenport Cubs in the Three- I loop.

The rule which has been in the conference's code for years but was waived during the war period, sets out: That athletes entering school before May 1, 1947, must count bath junior college and freshman competition as one of 4 years of competition; that athletes enrolling after May 1, 1947, could play 3 years, exclusive of freshman or first year junior college play.
