But nostalgic fans can be happy with one item—Nashville's Sulphur Dell hasn't changed a bit. The ball park with the neighborly I'ence in right field still gives pitchers young and old the jitters. Nashville and Birmingham managers waved toward the bullpen 17 times during the past two evenings while the Vols and Barons were amassing 41 runs in 6 hours and 28 minutes of diamond mayhem. Birmingham coppea last night's base-hit marathon 11-10 after bowing 9-11 to the Vols the night before. The bat-handlers mauled tho dazed pitchers for 52 hits in the slam-bang series. On slightly quieter premises, Atlanta grabbed solo possession of the league lend by running Its home winning streak over Chattanooga to 14 with a 5-3 decision; Memphis took second place with a 9-1 victory over Little Rock, and New Orleans turned on the power and rose to third by thrashing Mobile 13-3.

Smith Sports Roundup / r / by \-jaijlc Olson s New Righthand Punch NEW YORK (AP) The most exciting fistic event in some time, witnessed by a national television audience the other night, was the unveiling of middleweight champion Bobo Olson's new righthand punch, which previously had been a well-kepi military secret. In scoring two clean knockdowns ol the rugged veteran Joey Maxim with shots to the jaw. the Hawaiian-born titleholder did something which scores of bigger men have failed to do over the years. Probably no one was more surprised than Maxim, who previously had hit the deck only four times in more than 100 bouts. At 169 pounds, nine above the legal limit for his division, Olson was a most Impressive fighter. He resembled almost not at all the willing mauler who cnme out of the west and, largely through his almost unbelievable stamina, wore down and defeated every rival for the middleweight crown over the last several years. No matter how Archie Moore, the 175-pound champion, makes out in his bout with heavyweight Nino Valdes In their nontitle go at Las Vegas May 2, an outdoor attraction between the .clever Negro and Olson in one of the local boll parks this summer would give each of Beer Specials 24 cans $3.25 6 cans 90 BUDWEISER or BLUE RIBBON 6 cam $1.00 PHILIP APPLEBAUM LIQUOR STORE 111 I.

Tkinks Great Pressure Hurting Mays By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK (AP) — The ever-growing, punishing pressure on Willie Mays makes this the toughest of all years for the New York Giants' brilliant center fielder. So says Jackie Robinson, the Dodger star, who as the first Negro to play in the majors, had to surmount the greatest pressure ever heaped upon a baseball player. Long after Brooklyn had outlast- er the Giants 10-8 in a wild slug- feat at the Polo Grounds yesterday, Jackie remained in the club-house relaxing. "I'll tell you what waa the most significant thing about our victory,' he .said suddenly. "It was our ability to stop Willie Mays. Homers Only "You know something. I don't envy Willie. Everybody is expecting him to duplicate or better his great season of 1954. They won't settle for less Look what happened out there today. Every time !ie came to bat, the fans started yelllnr for * home run, "I think he is already showing signs of pressure. I could detect It from the way he was swinging today. He was going after too many bad balls. "He didn't worry us at all today. We figured on getting him out. We didn't feel that way about him last year. Every time he came to bat lie Is a great player. I think he's going to become one of the greatest of all time. Nejct year, when I'll probably be rooting for him to nit .400. But this year I wish him nothing, man. The Giants can't win unless Willie has another great year."

The 23-year-old center from Fort William, Ont.—demoted and slapped on the wrist in midseason— triggered two big goals last night to lead the Red Wings to a 3-1 victory over the Montreal Cana[liens for the Stanley Cup championship.

Main Now Equipped to Serve You Better BobbyShantz, Nieman Very Impressive By JERRY LI8KA CHICAGO (AP) — Two baseball Bob's — Bob Shanti trf the Kansas City A's and Bob Nieman of the Chicago White Sox — had a new lease on life today. Shantz, the tiny southpaw whose career almost was extinguished the past t'vo seasons because of injuries, ti Tied in an impressive, 11 losing eifort as the A's bowed to the White Sox, 7-1, yesterday. Ironically, the guy who nullified a splendid comeback effort by Shanti mainly was Nieman, Chicago's questionable outfield acquisition from the Detroit Tigers. Nieman belted a windblown double and a solid homer for a 4-0 White Sox lead which clinched Chicago's home opener victory. Nieman was a "sidepiece" in a Ferris Pain for Walt Dropo deal. Regular Berth for Nieman Nieman's efforts won him a regular berth in the Sox outfield. Shantz drew praise both from A's Manager Lou .Boudreau and Sox Skipper Manty Marion for his seven-inning stint against the Sox League title. Floyd Curry tallied the lone Montreal tally. The victory gave the Bed Wings possession of the Stanley Cup for the seventh time, tying the mark set by the Toronto Maple Leafs. during whion he allowed five runs and six hits, three coming in tt» last frame he hurled. "He had fine stuff and . I w»» really pleased with his showing," said Boudreau. "We'll be happr K he can pitch that way for the next two months. We just plan until July. We want to get him in shape." Fine Fllclur Shantz had a 34-7 record in 1962, before a broken pitching wrist and a shoulder collapse made him almost entirely ineffective in 1963 and 1954. Ife was voted the league's most valuable player in 1952. Marion said the Sox players, while doubting that Shantz had his 1952 stuff, was a fine pitcher against them yesterday. Shantz, himself, said his arm felt good. "I was throwing as fast and as easily as 1 have ever done." he said. Bobby and his brother, Bill, formed the battery for the A's yesterday. It's the first bro&er battery since the Cooper brothers, Mort and Walker, toiled for the St. Louis 'Cardinals in the mid-forties. TWIN SYSTEM new 2 H. P.
