PUBLIC Monday Evening, June 11, 1962. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Seven Twins Tied For American League Lea Use Home Run to Pound Sox Twice By MILTON RICHMAN UP! Sports Writer It always comes as a shock, but maybe you'd better brace yourself now because it could be twins! Ralph Houk gags on his cigar Every time he even thinks about it. Sam Mele takes a different view. He rather likes the idea and the reason he's beaming so proudly today is because his lightly- regarded Minnesota Twins are in a virtual first-place tie with the high and mighty New York Yankees. To rub it in a bit, the Twins moved into co - ownership of the American League lead by using the Yankees' favorite weapon — the home run. They hit a total of six in sweeping a doubleheader from the Chicago White Sox, 8-4 and 11-7. Sunday. Don Mincher, Rich Rollins and Harmon Killebrew each connected in the opener as Jim Kaat turned in his fifth victory and then Zoilo Versalles, Bob Allison and Lonny Green reached the seats in the nightcap to help Camilo Pascual gam his eighth triumph. Yankees Lose Two' That made it a banner day all around for Mele and his Minnesotans, but it was a black one for the Yankees, who dropped 5-1 and 7-2 decisions to the Baltimore Orioles. Mill Pappas stopped the Yanks on six hits in the opener, which was decided early when Whitey Hcrzog homered in the second inning and Russ Snyder followed suit in the third. Both blows came off loser Ralph Terry. Another pair of Baltimore homers by Brooks Robinson and Jackie Brandt made Skinny Brown the winner in the nightcap although he was nicked for two home runs himself by CMe Boyer. The Cleveland Indians salvaged the second game of a doubleheader, 9-3, after the Boston Red Sox won the 11-inning opener, 4-3; Washington swept two games from Detroit, 2-1 and 5-4, and the Los Angeles Angels took a pair from the Kansas City A's, 14-6 and 6-5. Dodgers Widen Lead The Los Angeles Dodger.? widened their National League lead to 2'/2 games by beating the Houston Colts twice, 9 J 3 and 9-7; the St. Louis Cardinals stretched their winning streak to seven games with 6-5 and 13-3 victories over the skidding San Francisco Giants; the Philadelphia Phils won their opener with Cincinnati, 7-5, but the Reds took the nightcap, 9-2; Pittsburgh swept both ends from Milwaukee, 12-8 and 3-2, while the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs, 2-1, then lost the 10-inning nightcap, 5-4.

Anyway the Logansport Country Club got a real going over last week when the coaches from the local high school held their annual golf tournament. After it was all over the rest of the coaches urged Gene Williams to enter the National Amateur tournament in September and Russ Fiedler was thinking seriously about inviting Arnold Palmer to a head to head match at Ihe Country Club—if they don't have to play the seventh hole where Russ killed six shakes, disturbed the nests of some of the oddest jungle birds you've ever seen and ended with a 21 on the hole. We could clarify this somewhat, but it's belter left alone. * * * Joe Patacsil would have easily won everything in sight, except for the fact that his famous "lolly- gaggers" weren't dropping in the hole. As a matter of fact he was leaving himself with 35 foot putts alter starting from 20 feet. The former Big Ten wrestling champion is a rather strong young man. Harvey Roberts was rather hard to get along wilh after he finished the first nine with a record score (for him) but settled down on the last nine and finished rather normally. Jim Jones insists that the old rule on one-and-one free throws in basketball should apply in golf. That is if you miss your first putt you should be allowed a second. .1. Harold Mertz, principal at the high school, got strokes from just about everybody and we un derstand most contracts have been renewed for the coming school year. Baseball Coach Rex Hunter was doing very well until somebody told him that a ball hit over the !ence couldn't be counted as a 'foul ball." Asst. Football Coach Jim Hollibaugh was mumbling something about, "damn round ball," when he finished and tennis mentor Bob Burnett insisted hat the game should be played on a clay course instead of grass. * * •* Probably the happinest coach it Logansport High School after lie tournament was all over was Fred Kinder—he didn't make it. Seriously, my thanks to tho coaching staff for being invited •uid to the staff at the Country ?lub for the fine meal and excellent facilities. Aside to Harold Jamison and John Bennett: Did the shoe fit? * * * The Logansport Little League Jaseball season opens Monday night. Your support is needed and appreciated. Besides, you'll get a lot of fun out of seeing these youngsters perform nightly at Grain Field. DICK WATTS Los Angeles 003 320 010— 9 17 1 Houston 020 000 100— 360 Drysdale (10-3) and Roseboro.

Dave DuboisWins FigureS Race at Kokomo Speedway KOKOMO — Dave Dubois of Logansport' won one of the Figure 8 features at the Kokomo Speedway Sunday night during which two other Logan drivers were forced from the race when their cars hit the wall.

Market Littler Cops Thunderbird; Says Palmer One To Beat In U.S. Open course for the first time Tuesday. "Besides I'm never the favorite — -there's too much dog in me." But if Palmer is favored for the one the golfers most want to win, the 31-year-old Californian, once regarded as a second Ben Hogan, is sure to be next in line in the betting odds. Hitting In Groove "I'm hitting in a nice groove and I played well yesterday," said the quiet Littler, who lets his-game do most, of the talking for him, "I think I putted better here than I did when I won the Open last year at Oakland Hills. "I'm pretty confident about my game. The only thing I'm concerned about is that I've never played Oakmont and I won't until tomorrow. That will give me only two practice rounds." H Littler felt good about his game, so did Palmer. Palmer wanted to drop out of the Thunderbird after a 72 Friday but agreed to continue when tournament officials urged him to play t out.
