It's Baseball, Not Football, and— Spencer Cardinals Beat Legionnaire Team 29-0 By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor The Spencer Cardinals came to town Thursday determined to put an end to the 9-game winning streak of the Mason .City Legionnaire baseball club. Before the largest home crowd of the season, the Cardinals posted a 29-0 triumph in 2 hours and 20 minutes of activity on Roosevelt diamond. Words fail to describe the slaughter, the most lop-sided victory witnessed on the Roosevelt diamond. Fans who have watched the Mason City club play good ball this season couldn't believe they were looking at the same team. The Legionnaires did retain first place in the Winnebago league standings by a half game over the Cardinals as the local club suffered its first loop defeat. 2nd Win Over Legionnaires The victory gave Spencer its 2nd straight victory over Mason City this season after dropping the loop opener here. The previous Spencer win did not count in the standings. In the 3rd inning, after the 2 teams played to a scoreless deadlock, Spencer scored 19 runs. In this frame, 23 Spencer batsmen WINNEBAGO STANDINGS W L Pet. Mason City 5 1 .833 Spencer 4 1 .800 Bancroft 1 4 .200 Estherville 0 4 .000 paraded to the plate. The Cardinals made 8 hits in the inning during which 4 Mason City pitchers tried their luck at retiring the Spencer side. In the frame, Spencer drew 9 walks, had a hit batter and the Legionnaires kicked in with 4 errors, 2 of them by Leftfielder Bill Dallas both being good for extra bases with Third Baseman Sam House circling the bases when Dallas muffed a fly ball. Hoffman the Leader To list an oddity, if you can call it that, Centerfielder Ed Hoffman fanned twice in the inning. But Hoffman had 3 more times at bat in the game and clouted a double and a pair of homers. He was the big sticker for Spencer as he got 4 hits, drove in 5 runs and scored 4 times himself. Each Spencer player got at least one hit in the game, drove in one or more runs and scored 2 or more times. When the game was finished, Spencer had 20 hits and had received 13 bases on balls. Then there were such things as wild pitches and a passed ball. The Biff Inning: Jim Hogue started on the mound for Mason City. He left in the 3rd frame after a hit, an error and 3 straight walks. Mully Fredericks tried his luck and retired one man but meanwhile 4 hits, 2 walks and an error were enough to send him to the bench. Then Mike Lloyd came to the hill. He issued 3 walks, served up 2 hits .and struck a batter while getting Hoffman on a strikeout. So Gus DiMarco, who has been at 3rd base all season, came to the hill and Roy Ross greeted him with a double. Ed Stockbauer then grounded out and the inning was finally over for Spencer after about 45 minutes at the plate. DiMarco • finished the game but Spencer kept up their hit parade paced by Hoffman. DiMarco did retire the last 7 batters to face him in the game in order. Dutch Shriner Stars Spencer didn't need much in the way of hitting with Right- hander Dutch Shriner on the mound. His fast ball was too much for Mason City and the Legionnaires had only one hit for the evening's work at the plate. In the 5th inning, Dallas hit a hopper to the left side of the in- after Bob Barracks had reached base on an error by House. House took a stab at the ball, barely deflected it and the ball was picked up cleanly by Shortstop Joe Burgoyne, Burgoyne held the ball as he had no chance to force Barracks at 2nd base nor catch Dallas at first. Shriner had 10 strikeouts in the game and issued only one walk. He did have a few of his pitches tagged but there was always a fielder ready to gobble up the ball. One play m particular was a gem for the winner. In the 5th inning, Lu Diaz poked a pitch which carried well beyond the leftfield light pole. But Stock- bauer turned on the crack of the bat, headed deep to leftfield, turned and hauled in the fly as ii nearly hit high on the light post. The victory was the 23rd for the Spencer team as against 8 losses this season. The Cardinals have now won. 15 of their last 17 games. The defeat was the 3rd for Mason City in 14 starts this season.

Dodds worked out Thursday and after a slow % mile Dodds reported his leg "ached like a toothache." * * * ####-* **####;> With Dodds Out, America Loses Best Distance Hope Track Stars Make Final Olympic Bids By AUSTIN BEALMEAK Evanston, III., (/P)—This is the day the nation's fastest runners,' greatest jumpers and mightiest, weight men start kicking up their heels in a last-ditch bid for places on the track and field team that will carry the red, white and blue into the coming Olympic games. The final Olympic tryouts are scheduled to get under way at 5 p. m. CST, at Northwestern university's Dyche stadium and will continue through Saturday afternoon. 15 Have Qualified Fifteen men already have nailed down positions on the squad departing July 14 for London, where they will compete in the decathlon, marathon, 10,000 meter run and 10,000 and 50,000 meter walks. Now, with the list of available athletes trimmed to less than 200 by eliminations in the NCAA and AAU championships, 53 additional places remain to be filled for the 17 other individual events and 2 relays. That means the end of the line for three-fourths of the field in this final showdown, once described by Jack Lovelock, the 1936 Olympic 1,500 meter king, as tougher than the Olympic games themselves. Only 3 Qualify The first 3 men in each of the 17 events land on the team automatically. In addition, the 4th men in the 100 and 400 meter dashes will be taken along to round out the 400 and 1,600 meter relay teams. Down for decision this evening are the high jump, javelin, hammer, 100 meter dash, 400 meter hurdles and 5,000 meter run. Saturday's finals will include the 200, 400, 800 and 1,500 meters, 110 meter hurdles, 3,000 meter steeplechase, broad jump, shot put, discus pole vault and hop, step and jump. Six qualifiers each from the AAU and NCAA championships make up the 12-man fields for all events except the 5,000 meter run, an open affair. With one exception, the field assembled here represents the cream of this country's track and field crop. The only notable absentee is Gil Dodds, holder of the world indoor mile record of 4:05.3 and Uncle Sam's principal prospect in the Olympic 1,500 meters. Mangrum, Locke Co-Favored to Win Columbus Tourney Columhus, Ohio, (U.R) — Lloyd Mangrum of Chicago and defending Champion Bobby Locke of South Africa reigned co-favorites to win the $10,000 Columbus Invitational golf tournament which began at the Wyandot country club Friday. Mangrum and Locke's chief competition is expected to be furnished by E. J. (Dutch) Harrison of Little Rock, Ark., who lost to Belting Ben Hogan in last week's Motor City Open at Detroit. Other top-notchers who teed off Friday included Dick Metz, Johnny Palmer, Amateur Frank Stranahan, back from the British Open at Muirfield, Scotland; Chick Harbert; Ed Furgol; Dr. Cary Middlecoff; Skip Alexander, Clayton Haefner and Ky Lafoon.

"God's will be done," said the Flying Parson when he learned the U. S. Olympic committee refused to take him along unless he qualifies in the final tryouts at Evanston, 111., Saturday. Dodds, virtually the nation's only place winning hope in the Olympic 1,500 meter run, said after a hobbling workout Friday that his strained Achilles tendon hurt so much he won't be able to compete in the trials. "Committee Has Rules" "I really don't deserve to represent my country in London if I can't eani the berth at Evanston," he said. "The Olympic committee has rules. Under those rules I don't make the team. If they feel it's for the best that way—I'm for it." Both Dodds and his canny coach, Jack Ryder, felt certain the gimpy leg would be in shape to carrj r the world's indoor mile record holder next month—perhaps to a new Olympic mark. But Dodds said he didn't want to press the Olympic committee for special consideration. "The fellow who qualifies foi the berth I might have had probably will be a young man to whom the break will mean something big and may affect his whole career," said Dodds. "Me—well, I've been running for close to 18 years. The Lord has been good to me and if this is the way it is to finish, well, that's all there is. It's okay with me." Look for Loophole Friends of the speedster, however, began a campaign to find ; loophole that would permit Dodd to represent the nation. One suggestion, purposely con structed to avoid Dodds' fear of cheating anyone out of an Olympic trip, was that he should be named an assistant manager on the U. S. team and thus be available to run if he regains peak form. Dodds himself said he hoped to compete in Europe, though not in the Olympic games. He said he probably would join a group of American track athletes who plan to barnstorm the continent aftei the Olympics.

Ph. 922 Nlfht ri>«B« 4520-J i Braves Snap Win Streak of Dodgers By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Ewell BlackwelPs return to his .947 form is the worst news Na- ional league hitters have heard ;ince opening day. The lean Cincinnati ace showed lis old zip Thifrsday in striking out 13 Chicago swingers while banking the Cubs with 7 hits 4-0. It was his first complete game since the opener. If Blacky means business, there must be some hasty revision of plans by other National league managers. A steady Blackwell, hrowing freely with that decep- :ive sidearm motion, figures to be an important factor in the pennant race. "Nuisance Value" The Reds, 4 games under .500, lardly rate as flag contenders at ;his time. But their "nuisance value" to the rest of the clubs will be enhanced by the return of a solid Blackwell. Eddie Stanky, the National .eague's All-Star 2nd baseman, was injured in Brooklyn while lis Braves were snapping the Dodgers' 6-game win string 7-4. Probab!e Pitchers AMERICAN LEAGUE Chicago (Wight 5-6) at Detroit (Hutchinson 4-3)—night. New York (Lopat 6-5) at Washington (Hudson 3-8)—night. St. Louis (Sanford 6-8) at Cleveland (Lemon 12-6)—night. Boston (Kinder 3-4) at Philadelphia (Coleman 8-5)—night. NATIONAL LEAGUE Pittsburgh (Riddle 9-3) at Chicago (Schmitz 7-9).

Stanky suffered a sprained ankle in a collision with Third Baseman Bruce Edwards who got off lightly with a spiked right shin. Boston's peppery infielder, a key man in the league-leaders' double play combination, may be out of the lineup for some time. He may miss the All-Star game at St. Louis Tuesday. Pirates Keep Pace Pittsburgh kept pace with the Braves, remaining 2£ games back in 2nd place, by dumping St. Louis 6-4. The Pirates scored 5 runs in the 1st inning after 2 were out, routing Gerry Staley who was making his first start of the season. Injuries also hit the American league where Pitcher Early Wynn of Washington and Third Baseman George Kell of Detroit, an All-Star team regular, were sidelined by sprained ankles. Wynn was forced to retire in the 2nd inning of a night game at Boston when Birdie Tebbetts lashed a single off his right ankle. He was able to return to Washington with his teammates where x-rays were to be taken. The Red Sox nicked Wynn for 2 runs before he left and added another pair off Forrest Thompson for a 4-1 edge behind Lefty Mel Parnell. Kell's injury, described as "not serious" forced him to retire from Detroit's game with St. Louis in the 8th inning. The Tigers were well on their way to a 12-2 romp at that time. Yanks, Tribe Win Cleveland opened up a full game on Philadelphia by slugging the hapless Chicago White Sox 14-1 while New York took a fall ovit of the Athletics 6-5. It was the Indians' biggest run splurge of the year, permitting Gene Bearden to coast hor"<? with his 7th win. Ken Keltner hit his 20th homer and Jim Hegan his 5th during the rout of Al Gettel and 2 successors. Tommy Hen rich's grand slam homer helped the Yanks end a 4-game losing streak by beating the A's. The 4-run clout tied the score at 5-5 in the 7th and New York took the nod in the 8th. NBA Says Walcott, Savold Outstanding Boxers, No More Washington, (U.R)—Veterans Lee I Savold and Jersey Joe "Walcott were designated top men among aspirants for the heavyweight crown in the quarterly ratings released Friday by the National Boxing Association. Blond Savold of Paterson, N. J., who never had a title shot, is 32. Walcott of Camden, N. J., who challenged twice, is 34. The N. B. A., which still lists Joe Louis as champion, does not recognize either Savold or Walcott as a "logical contender" for the title. It says there are no logical contenders in either the heavyweight or welterweight divisions. Charles in Light Heavy However, it does list Walcott and Savold as the "outstanding boxers" beneath Louis in the heavy class. Ezzard Charles of Cincinnati, who has been campaigning vigorously for a chance at the Louis throne, is not rated as a heavyweight. Charles is recognized as logical contender for Gus Lesnevich's light heavyweight title. Beneath Walcott and Savold, 11 other heavies are given "honorable mention." If Louis ultimately makes "official" his promised retirement, managers of those 11 unquestionably will demand participation in an elimination series to determine Louis' successor. In the featherweight division, 4 logical contenders are listed after Champion Willie Pep. They are Chico Rosa, Sandy Saddler, Carlos Chavez and Jimmy McAllister. No other class has that many contenders. The leaders in each weight division, listed in order of ranking: HEAVYWEIGHT Champion—-Joe Louis. Logical contenders—n one. Outstanding boxers—Joe Walcott, Lee Savold.

Olympic swimming trials gained momentum on the 2nd leg of their 4-day stand here Friday. The day's schedule of men's and women's events is calculated to add a dozen names to the list of American athletes ticketed for the trip to London next week. A pair of sturdy collegians, Wally Ris of Iowa and Keith Carte of Purdue, and former Yale sta Alan Ford who got off a sick be< to compete, grabbed the first 3 of ficial berths on the American team by finishing 1-2-3 in that order in the 100-meter free style. Ris, 24 year old University o Iowa junior who hasn't been beat en in his last 27 races at 100 me ters and 100 yards, topped th qualifiers with a winning time o 58.4 seconds, three-tenths of second ahead of Carter and a hal second in front of Ford. That was almost a full second slower than the Olympic record of 57.5 seconds set at Berlin in 1936 by M. Taguchi of Japan. But Ris was clocked in 58.1 winning his heal, in the trials before a pair of false starts took a lot of "the pent-up steam out of the finalists. Swimmers with the 3 best times and divers with 3 top point totals in each event—8 for men and 7 for women—qualify for the American team. Friday's program was designed to produce 12 more American qualifiers—3 each in 3-meter Springboard diving for both men and women, 3 in the men's .400- meter free style, and 3 in the women's 100-meter free style. National AAU Champion Zoe Ann Olsen of Oakland, Cal., 1936 Olympic Champion Marjorie Gestring of Los Angeles, and 31 year old Katherine Rawls of Miami Beach, Fla., who was 2nd in springboard diving at both the 1932 and 1936 games, head a field of 17 girls competing for the 3 team positions in 3-meter springboard diving.
