Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Bevw Berries Nip Hot Dogs For Fifth NCC Victory Logan Retains Lead In Conference Race Tom Shook's Pinch Single Earns 7 to 6 Triumph and Harry Elliott Belts 400-Foot Homer; Richmond Game Is Rained Out. The Berries still headed the North Central Conference baseball race today, after surviving a scare from wintess Frankfort, 7 to 6, Wednesday at the Stadium. Coach Hex Hunter was scheduled to take his club on the 130- rnile trip to Richmond today, but wet grounds has delayed the game until June 1 or June 4. All three remaining games on the LHS schedule are classed in the "crucial" category, since one slip could jerk the North Central conference championship from the Berries' eager grasp. Logan now will prepare for two meetings next week. Marion comes houlser 8 in 5 Innings, off Kressell 2 in 2 1/3 innings (one out when winning run scored). PB—Elliott 3, Gunyon 1.

The ball Elliott propelled far across the 320-foot left field fence, smashed a window in a house rented by Air Force Lieutenant Max Pettijohn. It carried nearly 400 feet, but light wires in the back yard obstructed the flight somewhat. Observers said the ball might have landed on the roof instead. Frankfort jumped to a 2 to 0 lead off sophomore Billy Cuppy when the bottom of the batting order stirred up trouble in the third. The Berries knotted the count on a walk, a bunt single by Dave Loner, a double steal and a single by Elliott. Cuppy opened the Berries' big fifth witli a one-out single. Eddie Watson received a life on a Frankfort srror and after Fred Schuc was called out on strikes, Loner singled to plate Cuppy. Elliott then directed his home run into the previously mentioned window. Righthander Larry Jones came to Cuppy's rescue in the seventh after the Hot Dogs had scored twice and put two runners or. base. Jack Toney's double chased home the tying runs, but Jones set down the visitors without further trouble to gain credit for the victory. Logansport lost three potential runs at the plate during the afternoon—Bill Platt, Cuppy and Elliott all being thwarted by the Hot Dog defense.

Car Owners To Be Given Extra Time INDIANAPOLIS (UP) —Racing car owners were assured today of extra qualifying time for the Memorial Day 500-<mile race if every car does mot get a chance to make the field this weekend. J. C. Agajanian, vice president of the Championship Car Owners Assn., said the agreement was readied late Wednesday at a meeting with Anton Hulman Jr., Torre Haute, Ind., speedway owner. The car owners sought the additional time because rain washed out all but three hours of qualifying last weekend. Agajanian said Hulman agreed | that if all the qualifying time is 'used up this Saturday and Sunday with some drivers not having a chance to qualify, more time will be granted—probably Monday. Trials to complete the 33-car lineup for the racing classic were scheduled to end next Sunday night, with 24 positions yet to be filled. In the first two days of qualifications last weekend, only nine drivers managed to qualify on Saturday because of intermittent showers, and Sunday was a com. plete washout.

(UP) — Most of the nation's leading money players headed by Masters champion Doug Ford tee off today in tho $22,000 Kansas City Open with Hillcrest Country Club's first hole a big factor. Many fine golfers have been provoked to pouting over their putters after a tilt with the 250- yard hole, one of the toughest par- time trials at least until a full field of cars is assured. The inclement weather also lias •been interfering wilih car testing and familiarization runs by drivers on the 2%-mile oval track. The oval was open for only 70 minutes Wednesday, and a dozen drivers took advantage of the break in the weather for shakedown runs. The fastest lap was turned in by Tony Bettenhausen, Tinley Pork, 111., at 143 m.p.h. in one of the sleek Novi cars.

(UP)—The Indianapolis Indians made their own breaks Wednesday night to beat Omaha, 4-3. Al Papai pitched his first complete game in six tries this season to rack up his third win. Ted Beard was the running star of the game. In the first inning he stole second. This put him in scoring position when Jim Delsing smashed a two-out double. In the fifth Beard stretched a long blow into a triple and then came home with the winning run when the relay got away from third baseman Ranee Pless. Ron Jackson accounted for the other Tribe tallies with a two-run triple in the third. The victory extended the Tribe winning streak 'to three. And it was the Ihird time in a row an Indian pitcher was able to go the route. Papai gave up only one earned run as the Indians' defense made four errors.

Klippstein Returns To Haunt Dodgers Johnny Klippstein, an ex-farmhand who never got.a chance to make the grade in Brooklyn, has the Dodgers convinced today he's definitely "big league." Klippstein, who was drafted out of the Dodgers' vast farm system back in 1950, has come back to haunt them with no less than eight victories in the last three years. He came through Wednesday night with a nifty five-hitter that gave the Cincinnati Redlegs an 8-1 triumph over the National League champions. It was a key victory for the Red- legs because it snapped the Dodgers' five-game winning streak and dropped Brooidyn into third place. It enabled the Redlegs to retain their game and a half lead over the Milwaukee Braves, who scored a 4-3, 13-inning triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies. The New York Giants edged out the Chicago Cubs, 4-3, in the only other National League activity. The Chicago White Sox made it two in a row over the New York Yankees, 8-4, the Boston Red Sox tied a league record of four homers in one inning as they routed the Cleveland Indians, 11-0, the Baltimore Orioles nipped the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, in JO innings and Lane Knocks Out Toothpick Brown DETROIT (UP)—Kenny Lane, the No. 1 lightweight contender, today was a fighter with no place to go after scoring a "perfect fight" sixlh-r o u n d knockout of Henry (Toolrpiek) Brown Wednesday night. Lane, 24, Muskcgon-Big Rapids, the Kansas City Athletics whipped the Washington Senators, ff-G, in the American League. Rain Delays Play Klippstein, who had an 0-3 record and was kayoed in his four previous starts, turned in one of the best games by a Redleg pitcher this year. He yielded the Dodgers' run in the second inning but shut them out with two hits after play was hailed by rain for an hour and 42 minutes in the middle of the fifth inning. The Braves pulled out their game with the Phillies, after trailing 3-0, on the wings of a three- run homer by Ed Mathcws in the fifth and Chuck Tanner's first round-tripper of the year in the 13th. The' blows, nth and 12th homers off Robin Roberts this season, were backed up by strong Milwaukee relief -pitching, which shut out the Phillies the last eight innings. Rookie Juan Pizarro, who took over in Hie 12th, won bis second game while the loss was Roberts' fifth. He has Iliree victories. Red Schoendienst's ninth inning single following a double by Daryl Spencer gave the Giants their victory after a homer by Dale Long produced a 3-3 lie in the sixth. Relief pitcher Al Worthington won his third decision while Bob Rush suffered his fifth straight loss of the season. Wilson Wins No. 5 Jim Wilson, 35-year old right- hander, went Uie distance for his fifth win as the go-go While Sox took advantage of two errors by Billy Martin and a three-base muff by Mickey Mantle to score five unearned runs and stretch their winning streak to nine Mich., 'southpaw, displayed a bat- i straight games. The victory stretched the White Sox' first- fling, powerful attack as he battered Brown to near helplessness before putting him away with a short jolting righthand smash. The weights were Lane 13054, Brown 137. A crowd of 2,398 paid $2,856 to see the nationally televised Olyra- pia Stadium bout. Lane's co - managers, Jack Kearns and Pete Pelroskcy, were all smiles, hoping the sensational finish would make their boy a TV drawing card and force lightweight chami) Joe Brown or another headliner into the ring with Lane. The champ, however, is already committed to a June fight with Orlando Zuluela, beaten by Lane.
