Curfeiv Ends Struggle; Close Call For Brooks lV Jark Hand AssocUted Press Sports Writer Hail the clock new chief umpire in the National League. With two consecutive Brooklyn-St. Louis games called a tie by the time keeper, the man with the watch is becoming more important than the players. Curfew struck at 2:18 a.m. EDT today at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis with the Dodgers and Cards locked in a 3-3 tie at the end of nine innings. National League ; rules say they can't start a new inning of a ntght game after 12:50 a.m. (local time) ro extra innings were out of the question. A heavy pre-game rain delayed start of the game for one hour and 28 minutes. Brooklyn almost missed a chance to tie the score for they barely completed the eighth inning, with St. Louis holding a 3-2 edge, at 12:47 ajn. St. Louis time. As it was the Dodgers managed to jjtifth over it run In tht ninth. Howie Pollet, trying for his 14th win, had a shutout 3-0 at the end of seven innings with Nippy Jones and Marty Marion driving in the runs. A walk and successive Singles by Carol Furillo, Jackie Robinson and Gil Hodges gave the Brooks two in the eighth. Ted Wilks came in to strike out pinch hitter Gene Hermanski to end the rally. Cards Load Hasrs The Cards loaded the bases with one out in the eighth but Rex Barney replaced Jack Banta, second Dodger pitcher, and got out of trouble just in time to get the ninth inning started before the curfew. On Monday this week the Dodgers and Cards played a 4-4 tie at Brooklyn when they stopped the game to let the teams catch a train to the west. St. Louis remains a glame and a half in front of the runner-up Dodgers with another night game slated for tonight and a day game Sunday. Herm Wehmeier, 22-year-old Cincinnati righthander, pitched his best game of the season, to shut out New York "with four hits, 3-0, in the only other National League game played. Wehmeier was in trouble only in the second when he allowed two hits and in the seventh when he walked three. It was his first major league shutout. Fourth Place The loss dropped the Giants into a fourth-place tie with the idle Philadelphia Phils whose scheduled day game at Chicago was washed out. Pittsburgh and Boston played three innings of their night game at Forbes field with Ralph Kiner's 28th homer with a man on giving the Pirates a 2-0 lead before a storm forced the game to be called on account of wet grounds. Successive home runs by Johnny Lindell and Bill Johnson enabled New York Yankees to add a half-game to their American League lead with a 3-2 edge over Chicago while Cleveland split a day-nteht doublehcader at Boston. The results left the Yanks out front by 4'i games. Mickey Haefner, making his first start for Chicago, was locked in a 1-1 duel with Tommy Byrne until Lindell and Johnson unloaded homers in the eighth. Cleveland Rebound Cleveland rebounded from a 2'1 afternoon defeat at Boston to smother the Red Sox in the night game, 9-3. The Tribe routed Chuck Stobbs, promising young lefthander, before he retired a man in a four-run first inning at night.

BC won easily from Manitoba by nine wickets, the losers scoring 68 runs and the winners responding with 90 for one wicket. The feature of the BC-Manitoba match was a great hat-trick by Richards, who hit the stumps three balls in succession. Alberta batted first, the teams playing on the small ground where 500 runs were expected from the combined scores. Alberta contributed their share, viz. 243.
