That was the general verdict in both the Clubhouses after yesterday's 5-1 victory by the National League over the American in the 20th All-Star Game. • —— * Charlie Dresen, manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the pilot of Legion Juniors Top Bafesville Childress' Homer Is Big Blow in 9-3 Revenge Victory The Blytheville Y Junior American Legion Team racked up a 0 to 3 win yesterday over the strong Bntesville Junior American Legion team to balance off im erli- er defeat from the same team. Bob Childress, Blylheville pitcher, allowed only 6 hits while Blytheville collected 10 hits from four hurlers used by Batesvillc. Rowland was the losing pitcher. The big show of the game came In tha ninth when Bob Childress place a homer in deep left center field to bring in two of his team mates already on base. Tommy Hatcher and Bob Childress took the batting honors with 3 for 5. Craig- led the Balesville hitters with 2 for 3. The Blytheville defense seemed to be improved over past performances as only one error wns made. Batesville committed four miscues.

I wish I had that kind of pitching all season." ( And Casey Stengel, manager of the New York Yankees nnd the boss man for the American Leaguers, blamed inability to hit for most of the American League woes. Casey also had some rough rough Words for an umpire and the wind. He insisted Eddie MR th- ews of the MUwsuikea Braves was not hit by a pitched ball in the fifth inning when the Nationals .scored two riiris. Ho also declared Larry Doby's ninth - inning fly would have been a home run except for the brisk wind. But he added: "We got bent and we got beat fairly." Reese Happy Happiest guy for the Nationals was Pcewce Reese, Brooklyn shortstop. Although he had played in seven previous Ramps he never hnd otten a hit in 13 times at bat. Yesterday he knocked out, a .single and a double and drove in : two runs, Dressen insisted IIP wasn't worried when the American Leaguers thveatcnod in Uie ninUi "we had a ample of boys down there getting ready." Dresscn may not have been too , much concenu'd but there was one worried individual. That was War- . rcn Giles, president of the National League.

Warren Spalm, Curt Simmons nnd Murry Dickson, in that order, held the American Leaguers to five sinRle.s. They had a two-hit shutout until the ninth when .singles by Ferris Fain, pinch hitter Johnny Mine and Minnie Minoso off Dickson provided the only AL run. The defeat was the fourth straight for the American League well as for Stengel, who has yet to win an All-Star Game. The Yankee manager has more luck in the fall, however, as his four World Series triumphs attest. The American League stil holds a 12-8 edf?e after the 20th game. The National League attack was paced by Enos Slaughter and Reese, a pair of veteran Ail-Star performers. Slaughter, now a 10- vear-man in All-Star play, gave his greatest performance. He rapped two hits, drove in- a run and scored two. He also stole a base and electrified the crowd with a brilliant diving catch in the sixth inning. Spalm Gets Win Reese, hitless in eight previous All-Star Games, drove in two runs with a single nnd double. Stan Musial got two hits but they didn't figure in the scoring. The Phillies' Richie Ashburn also contributed to the National League's scoring. His pinch single off. loser AUie Reynolds drove in the first of two fifth-inning tallies and broke a scoreless deadlock. Dickson drove in the final Nationals' run with a single off Satchel Paige in the eighth. The hit followed singles by Roy Campanella ind Slaughter. The Americans received shutout Etching from southpaw Billy Pierce to match three scoreless nnings of pitching by Robin Roberts. Each allowed only one hit. Spahn, who received credit for the victory, hurled two hitless innings before giving way to pinch hitter Ashburn. Simmons permitted one hit in the two innings he pitched.

A national organization to impiave ond extend Ihe uses of portland cement and concrete . . . through scientific research and engineering field work CONCRETE PAVEMENT Bill Hancy, still showing tremendous mound improvement, racked up his third win of the season by shading Sonny Ellcdge in a neat pitcher's battle. Billy was tagged for only five hits, the same as his pitching adversary, but two were of the infield variety. He fanned eight and walked five but not one of his free tickets was turned into run, in contrast to his previous experiences of having most of his passes converted. Elledge matched Haney in the matter of hits but was the victim of some faulty defensive play by his mates, who contributed six errors, four coming in the first two innings when The Shrine Club tallied six of their seven tallies. He issued only one walk — to Peewee Billy Lambert — who scored the last run in the fourth, and. whiffed three. Most of the scoring was confined to tne first half, with the Shrine Club getting away to a two run start during their first time at bat. With Larry whittle erased on a tap to the pitcher, Jesse Taylor singled to center and raced, to third when Joe Smith fouled up Haney's grounder. Billy pulled up at second on the play. Clyde Griffin promptly counted bqth with a one bagger. McGuire Bangs Triple Steve McGuire's power>laden bat „ | got one of the scores back in the hot.

Nelson Attracts Big Gallery His round was the best in the Cup Matches by a margin of three strokes as he dumped Albert McWilliams, the Texarkanan who was medalist in the recent Arkansas Amateur tourney, 3 and 2. 'Nelson also teamed with Charlie Isom, youthful Little Rock pro, to win a team match. Nelson attracted a,, big gallery, but it was his partner Isom who gave the spectators their top thrill. The tiny Little Rockian came within H inches of a hole in one with a masterful wood on the 250 yard 17th hole. He got an eagle on the hole but still lost his individual match to Gene Keeney of Texarkana, 2 up. Barney Osment of Jonesboro, defending open champion, was low amateur in the cup matches with one under par 72. That score was matched by pros Don Murphy of Texarkana and Curtis Collier of Fort Smith. These three and Nelson were the only one/; to break par on the 6 520-yard course. tion of the second. Haney fanned John Kelly but Swaner was given, life when Griffin tipped his bat. Sweet drew the first of three walks. Storey maae up for his error by singling in Swaner. But Courtney forfeited his plate opportunity by missing his batting t,urn. Haney escaped further damage by settin Cobb down on strikes. Errors Help Jaycees A pair of errors paved the way for the last two Jaycee runs in the third. Smith beat out an infield hit, moved up on two passed balls, then scored as Taylor was heaving out McGuire. Haney fumbled Elledge's tap. Kelly was safe on a. bunt, then swiped second after a passed ball had sent Elledge over to third. The Jaycee flinger came in on Dallas' error. Sweet again walked to fill the bases but Haney eased out of the spot by throwin three strikes past Wendell Chitmon. Haney and Elledge then knuckled down to do some clever dueling with only one hit each the rest of the way, although the Shrine Club did score on an unearned run in the fourth on a walk to Lambert, j Smith's third error and Haney's ! infield out. Kelly led off with a single in the fifth but perished on Swane. 's hopper to Haney. The box score: AB H PO A 4001 4121 ling out to the mound, but Charles Cobb slashed a hit down the left field line. Smith forced him at second, Whittle to Taylor, but big Steve cracked a three bagger to left that easily enabled Cobb to ride home. Three consecutive errors were mixed with two hits for four Shrine Club runs in the second that iced the game away. Jimmy Pugh trpl- ed to left ajid scored a moment later as Smith failed to handle Whittle's ground skinner. Dean Storey erred on Taylor's fly and Whittle dented home plate. Jesse also was a scorer as Bob Sweet missed Haney's loft to left. Griffin's second single accounted for Haney.
