Apple Stam Runs Second With her speed reserved for the stretch, Irish Music closed well and won by a length and a half from C. E. Tomblin's Apple Slam a longshot, while Ewart John ston s A Bit Fast took third. Russo saved ground on the first turn while several of the leaders went wide, moved his mount forward gradually in the backstretch and was in a coa tending position on the final turn. Handndden in the final six teenth, Irish Music rushed out the seven furlongs in 1.28. In midafternoon, the stewards announced that Jockey William Liddle has been suspended for ten days, beginning tomorrow, for crowding the horse inside him at the first turn in yesterday's fourth race. Liddle won the race with At Forty. Four West In Bid After gaining the lead on the final turn of the fifth race, Mrs. R. H. Lomas's Jacodancer withstood the challenge of Four West to gain a half-length victory at odds of 58.80 for $2. Four West, an extreme outsider at 45 to 1, was seven lengths better than Busy Day in the mile and three sixteenths turf race. Chicle Sador, Let Out and Radi-ence contended for the early lead in the grass race, but, in the final half mile, none of them was still around. Jacodancer, ridden by Mike Sorrentino, was timed in 2.04 3-5. The 5-year-old gelding is trained by Jose de Murguiondo. ft oses and heads were the de ciding factor in each of the first three races, and when Lagrin eked out his head decision over Liberty Andy in the third race the victory marked the second of the day for Willie Clark, the meeting's leading rider. Lagrin Beats Off Threat Lagrin, owned by Mrs. Leonard M. Carver, came from last place in the seven-furlong claimer to gain the lead in early stretch, then was extremely hard pressed to withstand Liberty Andy's rally. As heavy favorite, Lagrin paid $5.60 and was timed in 1.28 4-5 over a fast track on this overcast and showery afternoon. L,lDerty Andy took second money by three lengths over .Kidgewell Boy. Both of the daily double races resulted in nose finishes. Bobanet Stable's Brisk Miss i $3.60) took the opener over La crosse, then had to withstand a claim of 4oul. Although it ap peared that Brisk Miss, ridden by Clark, carried Lacrosse out early in the stretch, there was no disqualification made by the stew ards.

E. Richards, of Baltimore, who de feated Mrs. E. C. Ferriday, of Lhevy Chase Club, Washington champion, one up in 19 holes in the other semi-final. Match Squared At 13th Mrs. Glick defeated Mrs. Cush 5 and 4 in last year's final at Baltimore Country Club in what was Mrs. Cush's best tournament showing of her career. Mrs. Cush was three up after nine noies today but Mrs. Glick won 10, 12 and 13 to square the match. Mrs. Cush won 14 and 16 for a two up lead but Mrs. Glick won the seventeenth to retain a chance. " Both were short of the eight- eentn in two and both chipped up for one putt as Mrs. Cush pre served ner victory. Her Best Showing Mrs. Richards was three down after six holes to Mrs. Ferriday but squared the match on the eleventh and went one ud on the twemn. Mrs. Ferriday then won 13 and lb tor a one up lead and missed a 2-foot putt on the seven- tenth that would have ended the match. Still one up, Mrs. Ferridav Inst the last hole to a five and then was trapped in two on the nineteenth and lost to Mrs. Richards's par four. Mrs. Richards is the Balti mnrp title holder and Baltimore Women's Golf Association champion but this is her best showing in tne state championship. Milwaukee Sends .1 IM ... rr.. Ai; Milwaukee. Sept. 22 (IP) The Braves sent four players to the minors today in return for two righthanded pitchers to bolster their shaken mound staff and two promising Toledo infielders. One of the latter is First Baseman Frank Torre, who hit .327 and batted in 73 runs for thp American Association club this season. The other is Shortstop Felix Mantilla, a 21-vear-old whn nit .275. The pitchers, both from Toledo, are 25-year-old Bob Trowbridge, who won 13 and lost 8, and Carel-ton Willey, 24, who won 8 and lost 10. New York, Sept. 22 (JP) Rocky Marciano said today he had no thoughts of retiring "at the pres ent time" as unbeaten heavyweight champion and would de fend his title next June. Rocky's clarification of last night's retirement reports, after his ninth-round knockout of Archie Moore, was the most im portant development of a busy day, after the night before. Second Largest Gate The swarming crowd of 61,574 that paid a gross gate of $948,117.95 to see the fiercely contested scrap at Yankee Stadium and the 325.000 who paid an estimated $1,240,000 to watch the show at 129 theaters on theater network television pushed the overall receipts past the $2,000,- 000 mark. Counting the theater TV, it was the second largest ring gate of all time, second only to the fabulous Gene Tunney-Jack Dempsey long count rematch that drew $2,658,-660 to Soldiers Field in Chicago, September 22. 1927. Of course, the entire $1,240,000 from Theater TV does not go into the fight pot. The International Boxing Club had contracted to take down about $1 a head or about $325,000, in which the promoters and fighters share. Counting only this share of theater TV gate receipts and $35,000 radio money, the fighters will be paid off on ''about $1,177,- 493. To this figure will be added the receipts from movies of the fight, readied for distribution late today. Explains "Retirement" With a rich 40 per cent purse of about $470,997 as his share. Marciano hardly could be blamed for deciding to continue. Moore's 20 per cent should come to about $23o,498 although the Govern ment filed a lien for $64,000 of it for income taxes, past and esti mated for '55. At a morning press conference Marciano explained his "retire ment." Reviewing his dressing room comments, he said, "all I said was that a few people would iiKe me to stop, a few friends. I said it was a thought." May Fight Valdes When a reporter asked Mai ciano point blank, what his thoughts were after a night's sleep, he said, "I have no thought of retiring at the present time." Another reporter, trying to pin down Rocky as to when he might decide to quit, was rebuffed by Manager Al Weill who veiled. "He said 'no. That's definite." Weill had listed Marciano's nn. sible June opponents as Cuban Nino Valdes. Bob Baker, of Pitts burgh; Hurricane Tommy Jackson, of New York, or Floyd Patterson, of Brooklyn. "Let 'em ngnt it out." he commented. Both Weill and Marciano agreed there would be no more fights for the, Fight Facts And Figures New York, Sept. 22 (JP) Revised facts and figures of last night's heavyweight title bout between Rocky Marciano and Archie Moore at Yankee Stadium: Attendance 61 .574.

OF WHITE SOX Seeks Release From Contract With 5 Years To Run By Oct. 15 Chicago, Sept. 22 (JP) Frank Lane applied a formal "squeeze play on the Comiskey family to day in his wideiy-publicized quest to be released as general man ager of the Chicago White Sox The 59-year-old "Trader Horn of the baseball marts submitted his resignation to the club presi dent, Mrs. Grace Comiskey, ask ing that he be released by Octo ber 15 from a contract with five years to run Since Lane has thoroughly aired his desire to get away from the Sox and Vice-president Chuck Comiskey in particular, today's move obviously was aimed at forc ing immediate action. Announced To Press Although Mrs. Comiskey wasn't answering her phone, son Chuck said somewhat testily that Lane's resignation letter was announced I to the press before it had been mailed from Lane's Comiskey Park othce. "Everybody was aware of it before the interested parties knew about it officially," said the 29- year-old Comiskey whom Lane blames for causing his departure "All I can say," Comiskey con tinued, is that when the letter is in the hands of mother, there will be some announcement." This presumably will be tomorrow. Break Is Wide It was reliably learned the Comiskeys had hoped to resolve the differences .with Lane when he first blasted Comiskey for failing to support him after a tirade against umpiring in a Sox game.

A rematch with Moore i another possibility, although not too strong. Weill said "We'll fight him it the public demands it Rocky never ducked anybody Marciano said he hadn't heard it mentioned and didn't know how much interest there would be in it. The champ, incidentally, was unmarked except for a red blem ish under the left eye. He planned to go to Asbury Park, N.J. for benefit appearance and hoped to get home to Brockton, Mass early next week after a Sunday l v show. He expects to see some World Series games. Complains About Padding Moore, wearing dark glasses met the press in the hotel suite of Bob Reese, the Toledo auto dealer who backed his publicity campaign and reversed his field on last night's "no alibi" com ments. Archie complained about the heavy ring padding that slowed him down, the cool wea ther, the lengthy introductions of celebrities and the grease with which Marciano's handlers "bathed and soaked" the champ Archie said he was willing, even eager to tight Marciano again. "I don't have to press it,' he .said, "because he knows he can make money with me." The 38-year-old light heavy king said he thought he would have knocked out Marciano, instead of just dropping him for a four- count in the second round if he had stepped in when he threw his right-hand punch. Although Moore prefers to mingle in the big money with the heavyweights, he won't give up his light heavy title. In fact, Charlie Johnston, his manager, received an offer from London for Moore to defend ' against Randy Turpin, January 10. While he thinks it over, Moore will make a TV appearance, visit San Diego for "Archie Moore Day and go fishing.
