SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1953 Bl.YTHEVILI.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE nvs Big Question-Who Do You Like for Second? • By BEN PHI.EGAR Associated Press Sports Writer The big question around the American League right now is "Who do vou like for sec- ;jonrt?" It's true that the New York Yankees' trtmendous first place lead has been shaved to a mere 10 games, hut if you look a little deejer into the standings you find that a real battle is developing for the runner-up slot. ' three games separate second ^toce Cleveland from fourth place 3$aston with the Chicago White Sox .; sandwiched in between. Even Washington and Philadelphia can't be >•; counted out of the race for second. ' The Senators are five lengths be]\ Mnd the Indian sand A's, although jjr.ow in the midst of a three game losing streak, are only TV«. The Indians whipped Washington last, night, marking the first time ;. they have won a game on the same j day that New York lost one since ' May 8. The Yankees bowed to Ted ;• Gray and the lowly Detroit Tigers, Braves Take Worst Beatlnp The White Sox defeated Philadel- ; phia, 5-2, and the Red Sox beat the '•• St. Louis Browns, 4-1. In the National League the jj Braves absorbed their worst beating ;; Fince movnig to Milwaukee. The re, vitalized New York Giants swamped '; them, 15-1, . Brooklyn broke a four game losing ftvf-ak by taking the second half of - n doubleheader from the Chicago '•: Cubs. 7-1, after the Cubs had come from behind to take the free-hitting opener, 11-8. ^ -The third place St. Louis Cardi\ 'nals kept rolling with a 10-2 tri- umph over Pittsburgh, their ninth • victory in their last 10 games. Phili adelphia whipped Cincinnati. 10-3. , • Gray held the Yankees to five hits' In registering his first victory of the, season against nine 'defeats.

Big Mike Garcia breezed to his eighth victory, .an eight hitter, against the Senators who couldn't break into the scoring column until the last two innings. Heavy HHtinp By Cards The White Sox blasted the A' Rookie Marion Pricano for 11 hits including a two run double by Bob Elliott In the ninth, to hand him his second loss against four victories. Billy Goodman of the Red Sox ran his hitting streak to 15 games with a pair of doubles and a single against the Browns. Three Milwaukee pitchers gave up 16 hits, the fielders contributed two errors and the batters were baffled by Sai Maglie, who allowed only four safeties. Heavy hitting by Hip Repulskl. Ray Jablonski and Solly Hemus made it easy for Wilmer Mizell to pick up hi* seventh victory for St. Louis. Repulskl and Jablonski each had four for four, while Hemus drove in three with a triple and » pair of singles. Randy Jackson homered with the bases loaded to put Chicago ahead to stay in the first game of its doubleheader with the Dodgers but his basese-mpty blast was the only run the Cubs could get off Russ Meyer in the nightcap Halph Kiner and Hank Sauer also homered lor the Cub. in the opener.

Bob Childress led the Biytheville Attack with a double and a single. Floyd Baker, Boston Red Sox Infielder who has been an American Leaguer since 1945, has only one home run to his credit.

Monday night to take part in th tag match feature of the eMmoria Auditorium's wrestling show. Keene, a short dumpy heavy, weight who Is noted for.his agility despite his rotund size, has been booked to team with Irishman Ed die Malone in the feature bout, o the American Legion's card. Opposing the two veteran toughies will be Lee Fields and Jimmy Siksay a pair of speedy heavyweights who likewise need no introduction to Biytheville mat fans. The two teams .will do battle over the 90-minute time limit route in a bout that is expected to equal last Monday night's grudge card in action. Expected to highlight Monday night's action will be the continuation of the feud between Fields and Malone. This grudge dates back several yeras but it has gained quite bit In temperature in recent months. In Fields and Siksay, Malone and Keene can expect to find very potent opposition. Both are specialist; of scientific grappling who depend mainly on their speed and general wrestling knowhow. In addition to the main event two one-fall preliminary bouts are also on the card with Siksay scheduled to meet Malone and Keene meet- ng Fields.

"He's awkward, strong and pretty good,' 1 said Bobo of the onetime world champion, "but I believe my bobbing and weaving style will do it. "I .saw pictures of his' second fight with (Ray) Robinson," said Bobo as he dunked his hands in a bucket of ice water, "and I know my style will give him more trouble than anyone else has." Including Robinson? "Yes, including Robinson," said Bobo. Unhappy With Site Olson and Manager Sid Flaherty were eager for the clash with Turpin but Flaherty said he wasn't happy with promoter Jim Norris' choice for the site. Norris wants to put it on in New York's Yankee Stadium on Aug. 27. Flaherty said he prefers San Francisco, his and Bobo's home town. "We can do $500,000 at the gate in Kezar Stadium and televise the fight, too," said Flaherty. "That's ot better than they'll do in New York." Last night's massacre, which drew 7,418 fans, grossed $36,250 at $12 top.

The Lions Club shades the Legion in club batting by only four points, 'Slim' Rhodes says: "I'll See You Soon with 'FROSTY'" NEW 10RK (AP).— Word from up the Hudson says that the little village of Cosher, . 3,400, the 'cradle of American trotting," already is stirring with preparations for its ' one great day of the year when the'?100,000 Hambletonian Stake is raced o v e r its historic Good Time track. Pop With the date of this year's rich event, Aug 12, still more than a month away, some 70 horses are in training in and around boshen for the meet which features the three-year-old classic. This comes as something of a surprise to this corner, for we had supposed all the available trotters were occu- iled at Roosevelt Raceway on Long Island. Among those warming up for a :rack at the game's richest prize ire three father-and-son comblna- |ons, two of which have won the lambletonian before. Family part- icrships seem to thrive In the sulky jusiness as in no other branch of iports. Best known of, the three Is the cam of Ben White, 80-year-old of the drivers, and his son, '"o, 33, both of Orlando, Pla. They ••s propping Famed Abbey, a son f Guy Abbey, who sired the Im- aortal Greyhound. The. colt did ot start last year but Is «ald to 'C turning in some hot training •"ss at present. Olb Is expected to -• b'ni In the big one, old Ben ,• "ntcnt with his record of .iir Hambl~'*-' rt n t'-'umphs, Field »f II Henry Thomas, 64, who has held * the reins on three winners, is thought to be about ready to let his son Dick, 32, have a whirl at it this time. They have been driving against each other regularly on the Grand Circuit. Their hope in the Goshen test is Shelby Hanover, who won one of nine starts as a juvenile. The third father-son threat consists of Harry Bedell of Rldgewood, N. J., who at 67 is known as "Junior" to his more seasoned rivals, and his son John, 31. They never have won a Hambletoninn, but think they have something real good in Mr. Titan, « son of Titan ' Hanover, the 1945 winner. The current word Is that Harry intends ,o do the steering on Aug. 12, but that John Is trying to change his mind. Present indications are that a field of 12 trotters will compete in this year's race. With that number the purse in the best two out of three heat test would come to $105,000, which puts the bucolic event rl^ht up there with some of our most famous running races. 8«Ml Courier Newi ClwUlM Adi.
