Ten Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Phils Catch Up With Simmons By United Press International It took the Philadelphia PhUlies a long time to do it, but they finally caught up to .'lefty Curt Simmons. - Simmons, released by the Phil's on May 12, I960 and subsequently picked up by the St. Louis Cardinals, had beaten his old team"mates eight straight times until they turned the tables on him Monday night in an 8-5 victory "over the Cardinals. • Simmons, a member of the old Philadelphia Whiz Kids, had made nine starts against his old buddies and only once was he no.t involved in the decision—and that was more than a year ago. Included in his eight wins over the Phils were four shutouts. Phils Rake Simmons Monday night, however, the Phils raked Simmons for nine hits and tagged him with four runs to knock the Cardinals out of fourth place in the National League race. Don Demeter and pinch • hitter Johnny Callison caused the most trouble, each hitting his eighth homer and batting in three runs. The Pittsburgh Pirates moved a half-game past the Cards into fourth place on the strength of two home runs by Dick Stuart nati was postponed because ol rain. The other clubs were idle. Orioles Beat Yanks • In the American League, the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees, 5-3, enabling the Minnesota twins to take over first place by one . percentage point, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Boston Red Sox, 10-0, in the only scheduled games. Stuart hit one of his homers completely out of Wrigley. Field in Chicago and his second rolled under a tarpaulin in the Pittsburgh bullpen to give Joe Gibbon his first victory of the season. It was the -Pirates' third straight win. Jackson's pitching enabled the Mets, who now ha've won four of their last six games following a 17-game losing streak, to gain their first win over the Colts, who had beaten them three times. Two singles wrapped around a triple in the fifth inning accounted for two New York runs and proved all the runs Jackson needed. Near Riot Breaks Out . Jim Gentile's 16th home run and Hobie Landrith's first accounted for three Baltimore runs and proved the margin of difference in a game which saw rival which helped beat the Chicago; mana g ers Billy Hitchcock • and Cubs, 6-1, and the New York Mets whipped the Houston Colts, 3-1, behind the seven-hit pitching of lefty Al Jackson in other N.

Foyl, Houston, Tex., defending national driving champion, appeared today to have settled his differences with the U.S. Auto Club and with Tom Marchese, promoter of the 100-mile big car auto race which Foyl, won here Sunday. Foyt apologized to USAC Monday for 'his criticism of the race officiating and to Marchese for threatening to beat him up during an argument over appearance money. USAC officials had said earlier Monday that they would ask Foyt, winner of the 1961 500-mile race at Indianapolis, for an explanation ol his action after the race here, in which he finished four car lengths ahead of Parnelli Jones, Torrance, Calif., and two seconds ahead of third place finisher Jim Hurtuibise, Lennox, money.

Pufahl 'and Conn. R H 10 12 5 3 and Honk Tuesday Evening, June 12, 1962 FINGER WITHSTANDS TEST Palmer Can't Charge Oakmonl-Middlecoff Oakmont, Pa. (UPD—The golfers who have been losing to him n the tournament, trail weren't going as strongly for Arnold Pal mer today as the fans who have made him a 5-1 favorite to win he U.S. Open championship staring Thursday. They think "the monster," ivhieh is what the pros call the ugged Oakmont Country Club jourse, may be loo much for the 'ennsylvania strong boy, playing n his own back yard on a course ie has known well since he was a. boy. "This is a course you can't charge, and that is the only kind of golf Palmer knows how to )lay," pointed out Gary Middlecoff, the only two - time Open champion in the field. "I'm not counting him out—one never does—but this course may oe too much for him." Flashes Old Grin Palmer, who said he never is "too optimistic," was flashing his old grin Monday when he played Oakmdnt despite a gashed finger on his right hand. "My finger didn't bother me as rriuch as I expected it would. I feel fine and I was hitting my irons better," he said after a round in which he matched pai 35-36—71 for the B,894-yard course. "My finger feels fine. If it con tinues the way it's going I'll have no trouble at all." In addition to his iron play, Palmer was pleased with his putting—and putting is going to.be one of the big payoffs in the open. The greens at Oakmont are lightning fast—and probably will 'be faster starting Thursday because they will be rolled each night—'but also sloping ones with peculiar breaks. "One thing sure," said Palmer, "you don't, charge your putts here so I felt good about the way I putted." Palmer Cuts Finger Palmer cut his finger when he returned to his home at nearby Latrobe Monday after playing in the Thunderbird Open at Clifton, N.J. As he was pulling his Jug- gage in a car, his hand slipped and he cut the third finger on his right hand, requiring three slit- "I never really was too much worried about it," Palmer said, "but with the way I've been playing I can't afford any hand! caps, so I'm glad it stood the lest yesterday.", Middlecoff, who won his first Open fitle in 1949 and repealed in 1956, believes that defending champion Gene Litiler should do well here. "He keeps HIP ball in play, has the patience which Ihis coursa takes, and can putt well," Middlecoff added. He said lhat distance on tee shots was not too vital. Legion Nine Opens Slate Wednesday Coach Bob Hunter still has hopes that the American Legion baseball team will get its season underway sometime this season. The Legion, rained out at Michigan City Saturday and again here Sunday, are scheduled to try again Wednesday night against Kokomo at Riverside Park.
