Legionnaires Play Spencer in Important Loop Game July 8, 194S 15 M»««n City GUbe-Gasctt*, Ma:on CKy. U. Local Team to Go After 10th Straight By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor Thursday night is the big night so far this season for baseball at Roosevelt field. The Mason City Legionnaires, current leader of the Winnebago league, battle the Spencer Cardinals, 2nd place club, in a most important league contest. Generally speaking, it's unusual when a mid-season game has such importance. But Thursday's game, beginning at 8:30, is the bell- ringer in circuit play so far. Spencer's Lone Setback The Legionnaires have given Spencer their only loop defeat this season. That was by a 5-3 score at Mason City in the first game played by the Legionnaires this season. In a non-loop game at WINNEBAGO STANDINGS W. L. Mason City ....... 5 0 Spencer .......... 3 1 Bancroft ......... 1 4 Eslhervillc ........ 0 4 Pet. 1.000 .750 .200 .000 Spencer the same night, the Cardinals rallied to beat Mason City 4-3. So the teams have an even split this season and the Thursday game will be a rubber contest. If the Legionnaires win, they'll have a 6-0 record in the league at the half-way mark of Winnebago competition and be in a good spot to win the championship. But if Spencer wins, Mason City's record will be 5-1 and Spencer's 4-1, leaving the Cardinals only a half game out of first place. 11-2 Season's Mark Manager Don Blanchard's club will also be out to maintain a remarkable winning streak. The Legionnaires have now won 9 straight games for a 11-2 season's mark and haven't dropped a game since the Bradley university team scored a 6-4 victory for that club's 23rd straight victory. Only slightly less impressive is the Spencer record. The Cardinals have won 12 of their last 13 games, the lone defeat coming at the hands of the powerful Storm Lake White Caps. The Cardinals have a new manager since the early Mason City series. He is Sam House, who formerly pitched with Little Rock in the Southern Association and who started the season with Hartford of the Eastern States league. Perfect Pitching- Mark House, since joining the Spencer club, has posted! 6 victories without defeat and is expected to be the toughest hurler Mason City has faced this season. Jim, Hogue of lovya State college, who has been pitching steady ball this season for the Legionnaires, will be the probable starting choice on the mound for Mason City. Held in reserve will be Harold Kornbaum and Mike Lloyd, who divided pitching duties against Nevada on Monday. Blanchard v/ill be at shortstop and the infield will have Paul Bruns at first, Bob Henely at 2nd and Gus DiMarco at 3rd. Bob Barracks will catch. Lu Diaz \yill handle the centerfield chores with the other 2 outfielders yet to be named. Spencer will have Jim Fanning of Buena Vista catching, Bill Burgess, a real long ball hitter at first, Bud Yambor at 2nd, Joe Burgoyne at short and Dutch Shriner at 3rd. Roy Ross of St. Thomas, Ed Stock- bauer, who formerly played for Joplin, and Ed Hoffman, former Sally league player, will comprise the outfield. ALGONA K. C. CLUB WINS Algona—The Algona Knights of Columbus baseball team scored a 7-5 victory over Lake Park in a game* played at Lake Park. Don Meyers was the Algona pitcher.

In fact there were those bold enough to say that maybe the Dodgers would "catch on" in the red-hot National league pennant race in which they are now just G£ games out of first place, even though they still are in 5th. Catchers Everywhere With Catcher Gil Hodges at 1st base, Catcher Bruce Edwards at 3rd and Catcher Roy Campanella actually catching, the Dodger lineup looks like something out of an opium pipe when Manager Leo Durocher first presented it last Friday night. So what happend? Probable Pitchers AMERICAN LEAGUE Philadelphia (Scheib 7-2) at New York (Reynolds 10-3). St. Louis (Biscan 6-4) at Detroit (Trucks 5-5).

Boston (Shoun 3-0) at Brooklyn (Taylor 1-4). Pittsburgh (Ostermueller 4-2) at St. Louis (Staley 2-2)—night. (Only games scheduled). They beat the Giants 2 straight the Phils 3 straight and climaxed their longest winning streak of the season with an 11-inning 4-3 victory over the Braves at Brooklyn Wednesday night. Pirates Take 2nd The Pirates took over 2nd place in the National and moved to within 2£ games of the leading Braves by defeating the Cardinals 2-1 at St. Louis on the 6-hit pitching of Bob Chesnes.

For a change the Giants got some good pitching as Larry Jansen held the Phils to 2 hits in a 7-0 decision at Philadelphia in which Scotty Thomson got a 3-run homer. The Reds defeated the Cubs 10-3 at Chicago, piling up a 5-run margin in the first inning, then coast- ting in as Frankie Baumholtz and Danny Litwhiler hit homers. Ken Raffensberger went the route to score his 5th victory. The Athletics made the most of 4 hits to defeat the Yankees, 4-3 at New York and increase their hold on 2nd place to 3j games as Dick Fowler scattered 9 hits for his 7th victory against one defeat. Hank Majeski's 2-run homer in the first and his triple in the 5th provided the A's with 3 runs. It was the 4th straight defeat for the world champs, all by one run margins. Feller Wins No. 9 Bobby Feller went the route for his 9th victory as the Indians topped the White Sox 10-2 to stay a shade ahead of the Athletics Feller yielded 2 runs in the first inning, but had the pressure removed when Cleveland came back in the home half to score 6 runs Feller struck out 6, increasing his league-leading total to 76. The Senators upset the Red Sox 7-6 at Boston by putting over runs in the 9th. Gil Coan's 2-run single, followed by Garden Gillenwater's double which sent home the winning run, were the key blows. Vern Stephens and Bobby Doerr homered for Boston. Lefty Hal Newhouser scorec victory No. 12 for the Tigers shutting out the Browns 6-0 31 Detroit on 7 hits.

"I know this isn't Kansas City," said the fabulous Negro hurler who was purchased Wednesday irom the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro National league. "But I'll still be out there with a ball in my hand and the fellow at the plate will have a bat in his. I've pitched against most of these American leaguers and I've gotten a ]ot of them out. Maybe they'll cnock me all over the lot in league competition, but I'll have to see ihem do it. No Fear of Batters "I'm starling my major league career with one thing in my favor, aynway. I won't be afraid of anybody I see in that batter's box. I've been around too long for that." Satchel has been pitching for 20 years or more but he only admits to 39 years of age. "I ain'toas fast as I used to be, 1 he remarked, "but I'm a better pitcher. I used to overpower 'em now I out-cute "em." Wide Assortment Satchel throws overhand, sidearm and underhand. He throw fast curves and slow curves. He throws a blooper ball, a screwball a knuckleball and a slider. He even throws a "hesitation pitch' which he guarantees will frustrate a batter. The 6 foot, 3 inch native Alabaman almost got into his first major league game Wednesday night. He warmed up in the bullpen as Bob Feller staggered through the first inning against the Chicago White Sox, but soon sat down as Feller recovered and coasted to a 10-2 victory. Feller, incidentally, is firmly convinced Paige will help the Indians, probably as a relief pitcher Feller has been on several barnstorming .tours with Satchel and knows what he can do. The Rubber Arm Paige is blessed with an arm o such rubbery quality that he once pitched on 29 consecutive days. In one season, so he says, he pitched and won 55 complete games. Like all pitchers, Paige consid ers himself quite a hitter and onc< made a practice of playing the outfield between pitching assign ments. He gave it up, though, after a day in Venezuela when he dashec back after a long fly and wa about to step over what he took to be a fire hose when the hose moved. "Snakes," he said. "Pythons the size o' your arm. I stuck to pitchin ever since." HANCOCK COtlNTl SOFTBALL STANDINGS W. L. Pet. Xlrmme .1 n I.MM I Brill Woden .8.10 R. C.

Only a 10th of the listed entries r 8 individual events for men and 6 for women will earn the coveted tickets for plane and boat rides to the games of the 14th Olympiad in London beginning July 29. The others, most of whom have jcen in strenuous training for as ong as 6 months just for this big chance, were doomed to disappointment. Only 3 to Qualify Only the top 3 finishers in each ivent were in line for the honor :hat goes with wearing American colors in the big international ithletic carnival, plus a scattered 'ew others who will go along to form relay squads. Thursday's initial action involved only the men and consisted of just 3 events—3 meter springboard diving trials, 100 meter free style sprint finals and heats in he 400 meter free style. The meet gathers momentum Friday as the girls join the show, running their eliminations concurrently with the men's for the "irst time in the history of American Olympic trials. Prime interest in the first day's competition, naturally, centered on the men's 100 meter free style, the initial race to put its 3 qualifiers into the American lineup for competition abroad. Wally Ris Favored Wally Ris, University of Iowa's crack sprinter, loomed as the man to beat, though the field included inch top-flight candidates as National Champion Bill Smith, former Ohio State university ace competing with 11 swimmers representing Hawaii; 17 year old Jimmy McLanc, Andover Academy sensation, wearing the colors of the New Haven Swimming club; Keith Carter, Purdue university captain and Big Nine 50 yard champ; World Record Holder Alan Ford, formerly of Yale and Michigan State college's pride George Hoogcrhyde. Minor Leagues to Help Contributions for Olympic Team Columbus, Ohio, (U.R)—Seventj athletes who will be unable to compete in the Olympic games unless their expense money can be raided by next Wednesday may get some help on Sunday fron fans at 200 minor league basebal parks. George M. Trautman, presiden of tne National Association o Professional Baseball leagues Thursday set aside next Sunday a "Olympic Day" at minor leagu parks when fans will be asked t contribute toward the $90,00 needed to send these 70 athletes to London. ood News for Hunters; Pheasant Copulation Higher Des Moiiies, (U.R)—The 1948 prlng pheasant population is lightly higher than last year, the tate conservation commission aid Thursday. The commission said it reached he conclusion after examining jheasant census data and interviewing farmers. All parts of Iowa, except the northwest district, showed some ncrease over the 1947 count, ac- ording to the commission. Officials said weather conditions lave been ideal for nesting this eason, except for possible damage :>y recent heavy rains and a few lailstorms. They said nesting activities be;an from 10 to 2 weeks earlier .han usual this year, while most 'armers were a week to 10 days ater than normal in making al- 'alfa cuttings. Reports on broods of young pheasants indicated a high number >f birds per brood, the commission said. By JERRY LISKA Chicago, (/P)—The sides were chosen for the major league's 15th All-Star game at St. Louis Tues- times: day with the completion Thursday of the domineering American league's full squad. The hot-shots from the junior circuit, 2-1 winners at Wrigley field in Chicago last year, will be slugging for their llth decision over the National leaguers. Manager Bucky Harris rounded out his 25-player American roster by nominating 8 pitchers and 9 replacements for the starters named at the other 8 positions in a nation-wide poll of fans. The National league's squad was marshalled to full battle size Wednesday by Manager Leo Durocher who elected only 6 pitchers. Pilot Harris' own New York Yankees grabbed the most American All-Star berths, C, including Pitchers Vic Raschi and Joe Paige, the perennial reliefer. The rip-roarin' Cleveland Indians placed 5 solid candidates, among them the hurling "Bobsy" twins, Feller and Lemon. Boston and Detroit landed 4 players each. Washington and Philadelphia each had 2 nominees. Chicago and St. Louis contributed 1 apiece for All-Star representation by all 8 clubs. The American pitching staff is neat but not gaudy. Lemon and Lefty Hal Newhouser of Detroit are the league's winningest tossers, each with a dozen verdicts. Walt Masterson of Washington, Joe Coleman of Philadelphia, Joe Haynes of Chicago, all righthand- ers, and Southpaw Page, round out the corps. This 8-some will be pitted against the National's Righthand- e r s Ralph Branca, Brooklyn; Johnny Sain, Boston; Elmer Riddle, Pittsburgh; Ewell Blackwell, Cincinnati; and Southpaws Harry Brecheen, St. Louis, and Johnny Schmitz, Chicago.

SPORTS PARADE By OSCAR FRAJLEY New York, (U.R)—It's difficult to think about football in this weather but pigskin pilots across the nation are laying their fall plans and the consensus among the professional coaches is that the "T" party is about over. The block and tackle business, they voted almost 2 to one, is in for the new look. The "WLneed T" That doesn't mean the game will be longer, but rather new methods are being cooked up to make the path to the goal line shorter. Chief stratagem, apparently, will be the "winged T." That's no more than the old single wing, with the quarterback staying up under the center as he was in the T formation. So after 8 years, the cylcle apparently is ending. Back in 1927, Pop Warner turned the grid world on its ear with the double wing. Everybody was converted. When Knute Rockne rocked the business with his box, that too became the vogue. Then in 1930 the Chicago Bears —who never have received the proper credit—came up with the T It was devised, it seems, when Red Grange went the wrong way in a practice session conducted by Ralph Jones. The Bears used the T, developing it into a formation of beautiful precision, and walloped the Washington Redskins 73-0 in 1940.

The 2 rookies were chosen by Coach Ed McKeever from the Cleveland Browns draft list to complete a deal sending Alex Agase and Forrest Griggs to the Browns 6 weeks ago. The Rockets also obtained Guard Joe Signiago and Fullback Bill Lund in _the trade. Jensen, 6 feet 4 inches tall and 215 pounds, leu the Big Six in yardage gained passing in 1946 while Batchelor, also 215 pounds and 6 feet 2 inches tall, also was noted for his passing ability. Moose Softball Club Edges Decker's 14-13 Moose Lodge stayed in a contending position in the first division of the YMCA softball league Wednesday evening at East park by edging Decker Brothers 14-13. Decker's scored a pair of runs in the last of the 7th inning but the rally died with 2 runners on base. Third Baseman Waggoner drove in 5 runs for the winners while Demos sent 4 runs across the plate for the losers. The standings: had been coaching the University of Chicago and had absorbed the Bears' T. He went to Stanford and installed it. A few weeks after the Bears bounced the Redskins, Shaughnesy's undefeated Stanford team—using the "stolen" T beat Nebraska 21-13 in the Rose Bowl. Overnight the football world became T conscious. On the Downgrade But just as the double wing, the single wing, the box and other formations went into the discard, so too the T is fading now. The chief reason given by the pro coaches, the men who set the grid style, is that the defense is catching up to the offense. In addition, most teams now have a set defense pattern for the _ T. So, when they come up against the older formations, they are handicapped because time has made unfamiliar the defenses which should be used against them. _ The shift from the true T is almost wholesale in the All America conference.

Fight Results New Orleans —Anthony Arnonc, 184^6, New Orleans, knocked out Jack "Spider" ArmstroiiR, 134, Toronto, '2. of the Los Angeles Dons. Ray Flaherty of the Yanks will use the single wing; Buck Shaw of the San Francisco 49'ers the T "with variations," and Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns the T with "a flanker and a man in motion." All feel that the T is slacking off. Remaining- Holdouts Cecil Isbell of the AAC's Baltimore Colts, Ed McKeever of the Chicago Rockets and Red Dawson of the Buffalo Bills will use the T, which they insist is not going back into limbo. Agreeing that the T is fading are such National leaguers as Steve Owen, New York Giants, to use the winged T; Bo McMillen converting the Detroit Lions from the T to the winged T; Johnny Michelosen of Pittsburgh, using the single wing; and T-users Clipper Smith, Boston Yanks; George Halas, Bears, and Curly Lambeau, Packers. Also using the T, and feeling it will keep going as strong as ever, are Bob Snyder, Los Angeles Rams; Greasy Neale, Philadelphia Eagles, and Jimmy Conzelman, Chicago Cards. So overall, the experts figure the strict T is doomed—and the fashion of the football future will be a hybrid known as the "winged XJlica, N.
