Wednesday Evening, June 37, 19ft.. Logansporf, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Nineteen ' Wilson Twirls No-Hitter At Belimsky BIG FAT GOOSE EGG—Red Sox pitcher Earl Wilson hold up jersey with a big fat 0 in dressing room after pitching a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Angels at Fenway Park. (CPJ) E ambling At Random The Western Open is set for the Medinah Country Club just outside Chicago starting Thursday and running \hrough Sunday. The big 'attraction for the golf tournament is, of course, the first meeting of Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer since the National Open when the rookie pro topped Palmer in a playoff and thus ended any threat the Pennsylvania pro had to take the "Grand Slam" of golf. Both players took a vacation last week from the tour and missed the Eastern Open. To you who are not ardent golf fans, the similarity between the two names of the tournaments is only similarity concerning the two meets. ' • * * * The Eastern is a good tournament at best, but the Western has always been recognized as only one step lower than the Masters, PGA and the National Open. It's a very coveted prize among the pros. ! We have had a few requests on how to get to Medirtah and right here we'll do our best. It's located' straight north of Glen Ellyn near U.S. 20. Probably the easiest way to get there is lake the Tri-State toll way to Lake Road, which is U.S. 20, turn west and go to Medinah road, turn right and it takes you right past the golf course. If there's an easier way we don't know of it. » * * How's this for something different? In Babe Ruth action Tuesday night a member of the Elks Cubs stole home on a foul ball. Impossible, you say. Maybe. It happened that Mike Wood broke for home plate when the pitcher was making his delivery. Mike slid across the plate as his teammate fouled off the pitch. Wood got up and started to trot back to third base but was motioned to the bench by the home plate umpire. JThe ruling being that Mike hit the plate before the ball was fouled off; * • • Official Little League and Pony League Day will be held in Comiskey Park Saturday afternoon, July 14th. All Little and Pony Leagues in uniform and their coaches land managers will be admitted free of charge to the Detroit-White Sox game that afternoon. Game time is 1:30 p.m. Logansport time. •" * » • On July 1 the Big Ten will begin its 67th year, the oldest continuous collegiate .athletic conference in the nation. * * * Seems there's a private golf course within the city limits of Logansport that's open to only the very "elite." It's only one hole, but wli.il a hole—through rose bushes, onion patches, rain bar rels, etc. We played our first round at an odd hour Tuesday night and were slightly over par. The course record will never be matched by anybody but the "pro"—he cheats. « » * We've always held great admiration for Ring Magazine and it's editor and publisher Nat Fleischer. But, we think Mr. Fleischer has pulled a "rock" .with his latest issue. Ring now recognizes the synthetic "junior lightweight" and junior welterweight" divisions of boxing. Why the 130-pound and 140- pound classes are given recognition is beyond us. Next thing is synthetic divisions for heavyweights and middleweights. Isn't boxing in enough of a mess? DICK WATTS Houston Buys Yonks 7 Cerv NEW YORK <UPJ)-<>ulifieldcr Bob Cerv, who served three hitches with the New York Yankees during an 11-year American League -career, will try to carve out a new career for himself with: the Houston Colts of the National League. The 36-year-old, 240-pound right- handed hitter was sold by the Yankees Tuesday night for the $20,000 waiver price. It,was the third time the Yankees traded him despite the fact that he.once was considered one of the hottest prospects in their farm system. Cerv started' this season with a .278 lifetime average, including a .305 campaign, spiced with 38 homers, with the Kansas City Athletics 'in 1958. Bob had made only two hits in 17 official at bats for the Yankees this year.

ZEBCO SPECIAL THURSDAY-FRIDAY-SATURDAY, ONLY ZEBCO SCOTTEE No. 66, Reg. $12.95 Twins Drop Yanks to Move Up on Indians By FRED DOWN UPI Sports-Writer The score was the same as on May 5 only this time it was Earl tVilson basking in no-hit glory nd Bo Belinsky knowing the rustration of running up against a;i invincible opponent. It was an ironic tableau—ironic because, the author of the season's ,first no-hitter had himself >een topped by a no-hitter — and also because 'three, months ago neither principal in the fdrama 'igured to be still wearing a ma- or league uniform on this date. Perhaps .never before in bas'e- >all history have two no-hitters >een achieved so close together >y two such unlikely; candidates : or ntvhit fame. . . Belinsky achieved his for the Los Angeles Angels with a 2-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles, May 5, and Wilson, a wild 'ireballer who started out as a catcher, matched' it Tuesday night with a '2-0 triumph for the Boston Red Sox over Belinsky. The 220-pound native of Ponchatoula, La., who now lives in San Diego, Calif., had failed in two previous trials with the Red Sox and was regarded as too wild to be. a -first-class'' pitcher. , "Pleasingly Wild" He was. "pleasingly wild;" to use coach Sal Maglie's /phrase, Tuesday night, walking four and striking out five en route to his classic. It was his third- victory in succession'and,his sixth of the season but it was only his first complete game. Wilson made it a night to remember atf his life with a homer into the left, field screen that produced the Red Sox' first run. The no-hitter was the first at Fenway Park, Boston, since Detroit's Jim Sunning pitched one on July 20, 1958,' and the first by a Red Sox pitcher since iMd iPar- nell- pitched one against the Chicago White Sox, July 14, 1956, Meanwhile, 'back to the pennant races: The Minnesota Twins whipped the New York Yankees, 5-0, and moved to within one game of the American t League lead when the Cleveland Indians split with the Detroit Tigers, .winning, 3-1, in 12 innings after a fl-0 defeat. The Kansas City Athletics, shaded the Washington :Sehatdr's, 2-l| and; the Baltimore Orioles topped the 1 Chi cago White Sox, 1-0, in other games.
