Wednesday Evening, May 29, Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Eleven Weather Outlook Bright For 5 33 Drivers Give Racers tit -Mile Classic Final Shakedown Runs Predict Record of 130.840 MPH by the Late Bill Vukovich in 1954 Will Be Shattered. INDJANAPOLIS, Ind., (UP)—The S3 starters in the Memorial Day 600-mile auto race push their low slung roadsters onto the speedway oval today for final tests and ihakedown runs. , Some will practice tire changing and refueling against the stop watch. Others will check carbure- tion and cruise around the brick and asphalt course at a speed they hope to maintain for 200 Ipas in their bid for fame and glory in the nation's premiere gasoline derby. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., (UP)— Facts and figures on Thursday's 41st annual 500 mile Memorial Day auto race: Probable •attendance—150,000 (estimated) Weather—'Mostly fair and cooler. Starting time—11 a.m., cdt. Field — The 33 fastest cars in qualifications. , Jrize money — (guaranteed) $20,000 to winner, $10,000 to runner-up. Total purse, including accessory awards, expected to exceed $300,000. Radio — Speedway network of morj than 300 stations, beginning 10:45 a.m., c.d.t. until 3:15 p.m. Television—none. The weather outlook was optimistic. It called for "mostly fair and cooler"—a 100 per cent improvement over predictions for the two time trial weekends, when rain interfered on all but the final day last Sunday. Pit Stops Discussed Pafko Hopes He Can Help Braves' Drive MILWAUKEE (UP) - The way old man Andy Pafko of Milwaukee talked today he might have-just what the Braves need to shake them out of their slump. The veteran outfielder said although he's 36, he might have a few base hits left in him that could give the team a boost. "I keep myself in condition ready to go all the time," he said. Pafko frankly admits he probably couldn't play a full season, but with a little rest during the heat of the season, he's be able to play several'games at a stretch. "I'm not getting any younger, but I'm not the oldest in the league either. I can play if fellows like flank Sauer of the Giants and others- can," said Pafko, who broke into the National 1944 with the Chicago Cubs and helped spark them to a 1945 pennant. The old-timer said he didn't find it hard to stay in shape, but since he has been used for relief -play and pinch hitting in the past several years, he's had a hard time getting his batting eye. "I've always been a starter," Pafko said. "And if I don't play every day, it's hard to got my .iming." Berries NCC Title Hopes Snuffed Out Anderson Hands Logansport 11 To 1 Beating For Second Loss In Two Days Anderson dealt a killing blow to Logansport's hopes of sharing. tMe North Central conference baseball title Tuesday by routing the Berries, 11 'to 1 on the Indians' diamond. ' The setback in the wake of a 7 to 1 loss Monday to Marion was the third for Logansport against five victories. The Berries have double header with Wolf Lake at Riverside park Friday at 5 and 7 o'clock and close at Richmond Saturday. Marion needs only one victory in its two remaining games against Tech of Indianapolis and Jeff of Lafayette to win at least a share of the NCC crown. Two. triumphs will give the Giants a clean sweep. Jeff clipped Richmond, 2 to 1 Tuesday to keep its pennant hopes alive, The Bronchos at 5-2 lay at . Tech Friday and have a postponed _j : game with Marion. Richmond is now tied with the Berries at 5-3. The majority of pilots figured 'Pafko, who holds most of the on at least two pit stops.. Some Braves individual records because cars, like the big powerful' Novis driven by Paul Russo and Tony of his long tenure in the league, said he thought, the Braves will Bettenhausen, may make as many work themselves out of their four. "The smoother you drive, the more you'll conserve your tires," said former national driving king Sam Hanks, who is com.pe.ting in ihis 12th "500" "I plan to save my rubber so I'll have to make only two stops." Hanks was runner-up to Pat Flaherty last year. Jimmy Daywalt was one of the few speed merchants hoping to make just onn stop—" and we can do it, too," he added confidently. Although the racing fraternity differed on the number of pit stops, the consensus of opinion was the winner will stop three times for servicing. His car will be especially hard on tires because it is the "take charge" machine. Speed Record Seen There also was general agreement that the record of 130.840 jnph for the distance set by the late Bill Vukovich in 1954 will go by the boards. Estimates ranged from 131 to 137. Pat O'Connor, the pole sitter and lop favorite along with former' Je [ terson . s . surprisingly strong winner Troy Ruttman in a poll of slump. He said Hank Aaron, the team's best hitter, had been carrying the team thus far, but the strain on him is beginning to show and he needs some help. Pafko, a Wisconsin farmboy, broke into baseball as an infielder with Eau Claire in the Northern League in 1940. He stuck with the Cubs until 1951, when he was tradde to Brooklyn. He came to Milwaukee in 1953. He was a regular most of the time in 1953 and 1954, having his best season in the Braves first year here, 1953. He batted .297, hit 17 home runs and batted in 72 uns. Now, he's used mainly as a pinch batter and occasional starter. But Pafko, whose trademarks are the diving shoestring catches and head-first base sliding, feels he has enough zip for one more shot in what could be his last year in the majors. Anderson welcomed an unexpected amount of assistance from the Berries in the form of seven walks, a hit batsman and six errors to blend with their seven base hits. v ' • 1 The Indians scored three runs in the third and' were never headed. They poured across six runs in a big sixth inning rally, just for nsurance. Logansport again out-hit its rival, 9 to 7, but repeated a failure in the clutch • and left 10 runners stranded on the bases. A triple by Dave Loner and Harry Elliott's single accounted for the Berries' only rally in the sixth. Fred Schue and Loner each collected two safeties.

Ortiz Seeks 24th Straight Ring Win CHICAGO, (UP)—Unbeaten Carlos Ortiz, hoping to run his win streak to 24, takes on converted- Parisian Felix Chiocca in a 10- round lightweight- televised fight. • tonight. Oritz, 20, who has knocked out nine of his 23 victims to date, said he wasn't necessarily going'for a (knockout against Ohiocca, who has lost dnly five of 33 bouts. "I'll wail and see," said Ortiz, a native of Puerto Rico who now lives in Now York. "I always look 'ifor an opportunity to put across & knockout punch but I don't plan lo spend the whole fight waiting for a chance to throw that one blow. I'll keep fighting throughout." . Chiocca, 23, a native Venezuelan who adopted Paris as his home a few years back, recently whipped Teddy (Red Top) Davis. In all, Chiocca has lost only one fight in the past three years. Of his 27 wins, five of them have been on knockouts. He has had one draw. to submission at Grain Field 12-5 and Daniel Webster routing the Columbia Red Devils at Tower Park 12-2.

The wily, 36-year-oM southpaw hooked up with Cincinnati's young Don Gross in an old - fashioned pitching duel Tuesday night at Milwaukee. Gross had a no - hit, no - run game going until the 'eighth inning when Bobby Thomson led off the frame with a triple and later scored on Frank Torre's single to give Spahn and the Braves a 1-0 victory. The Braves' triumph allowed them to move within 2% games of pace-setting Cincinnati and to within a half game of the Dodgers, who dropped a 3-2 11-inning decision to Pittsburgh Pirates. In other National League night games, Larry Jackson pitched the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-1 triumph over the Chicago Cubs, and the Phillies whipped the Giants, 16-8.

That was'the California Gold Rush To Be Re-Staged in '58 Dodgers and Giants Given Unanimous 0. K. to Move West; Redlegs May Shift to New York. CHICAGO, (UP)—The Brooklyn Dodgers and r?ew York Giants were set for the "California Gold Rush of '58" today in a package deal that may aiso transform the Cincinnati Redlegs into a New York franchise. The way for the most drastic revision of the major league baseball map in history was officially paved Tuesday when National League club owners unanimously consented to permit the Dodgery to shift lo Los Angeles and the Giants to San Francisco. The owners stipulated both clubs must make up their' minds before Oct. 1. official told the United Press the Redlegs will move to New York if the two other clubs move out. It was the same official who informed the United Press of the developments which occurred Tuesday.

Spahn allowed eight hits In chalking up his fifth victory of the season and his third over bhe Red- legs this year. He has always been tough on Cincinnati and how holds a 42-14 lifetime record against the Redlegs. Pittsburgh relief pitcher Elroy Face won his own game against tlie Dodgers when he scored on PeeWee Reese's wild throw to the plate in the llfch inning. Don Newcombe absorbed th e loss. The Phillies ran up their highest run total in nearly three years against the Giants, Winning pitcher Bob Miller, Rip Repulski, Willie Jones and Stan Lopat'a each drove in three runs.
