SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1952 Phillie Rookie Steve Ridzik Throws No- Hitter at Cards BLYTHRVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Ky RAI.VH RODEN Associated Press Sports Writer The Yonkers, N.Y., native named recently as one of the Phils' starters by Manager Eddie Saw. yer, has had little to cheer about until this season. Rldzlk Joined the Phils' organization when he was 16 years ojd. His best season to date was In 194S when he won 15 with Utica. This earned him a tryout in 1950 but his dreams were shattered when he suffered a fractured knee cap in an intra-sijuad game. Last year, with a poor Baltimore team, Rldzlk won only 5 and lost 11 but th,e brass, ordered him to the Phils' camp for another chance. RidKik impressed the brain trust but received a bawling out. by Sawyer for breaking the curfew law. He came in 15 minutes after the curfew but wasn't fined. The youngster capped his brilliant pitching this spring with his no-hitter. He was slightly 'wil'd. walking four and hitting three Cards but was tough in the pinch. He now has pitched 11 hitless innings and "1 F">rr>\e^s frames. His First One "I didn't realize I had a no-li!Hcr going until the seventh when I started trying, to figure how many hits they had," HidVjk satd after the game. "It was the first no-hitter I ever pitched. I was using a fast ball and a curve, alternating them with a palm ball which 1 picked up from (Jim) Konstanty this spring." Willie Jones played a big part In the victory. He came up with two great fielding plays nnd socked a two-run homer in the Phils' three-run eighth inning. Until the eighth rookie Wilmer (Vinegar Bend) Mizell of the Cards had blanked the Phils on two hits. Dick Bokelman was the victim of the Phils' uprising. The no-hitter was the second of the spring-. Jim Hearn and Monte Kennedy pitched the New York Giants to a 10-0 no-hit victory over the Chicago Cubs on March IT. Sam Zoldak and Bob Hooper almost pitched a po-hitter for the Philadelphia Athletics. The duo held the Baltimore Orioless'to one hit in n -night game at Fayetie- ville, N.C., which the A's won.- G-o. Ed Kazanski, $30,QUO bonus player of the Phillies, spoiled the bid with a sixth inn'ng single off Zoldak. Brooklyn "Wins Chris Van Cuyk of Brooklyn also turned in a fine" pitching job as the Dodgers trounced the Boston Braves. 7-0, at Montgomery, Ala.

The New York Giants scored their first victory in eight starts against Cleveland by beating the Indians, 5-3, at Oklahoma City, Okie. Larry Doby and A! Rosen homered for the Indians.

Tommy Byrne went the distance vJor the Browns and scattered eight Chicago hits. Byrne featured a game winning seventh inning rally •with a double that drove in one run and set up the tying and winning markers. The Cincinnati Reds made it three straight over Washington b$ nipping the Senators, 3-2, at Wilmington, N.C. Ewell . Blackw.ell went the distance for Cincinnati and yielded seven hits Including a two-run homer by Sam Mcle.

Wj-Professlonal golfers and other folk's who arc .supposed to know say Ben Hogan holds a mental bugaboo over Sam Snead—that SneaH can't win with Hogan in the field. ' But as the Masters Tournament* today reached the third round, Snead seemed well on the way to defeating Hogan right where It hurt the most — in a major tournament with thousands looking on. Unless Hogan can get his alleged rvex back in working order or un- ess Snead /alls badly off his pace, Snead will set a new Masters record Sunday with strokes to spare. The Virginian, by way of .West Virginia, yesterday shot a 67 for 131 two-round total. That was good enough by three strokes to pull ahead of Hognn, who repeated with another 70 for a HO. Should Rreak Par At Snead's present rate, lic'il give :hc 72-hole par of 288 on the Augus' i National a rough spanking. Tied with I42,s were Tommy Boll Jim Ferrier and John Revolta.

NCA Outlines New 'Athletic Reform' Program; Violators Face Expulsion A convention of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools' set up the program yesterday. It approved a new code, effective Sept. 1, which .strikes at "snap courses." athletic scholarships and over-emphasis on winning. Approximately 1.000 delegates voted to make violations punishable by possible dismissal from the association's list of 350 accredited universities nnd colleges a IB-state area, including all Big Ten schools and parts of the Missouri Valley and Big Seven Conferences. Authority to serve public warn- i"K to. or place on probation, or suspend, any violator of the new code Is given the association's commission on universities and col- legos. The commission will rule on complaints passed on bv a new committee pn athletic reports. Loss of accreditation Is considered a serious ulow to a school's standing. The new code sets forth these theories on athletics:: : "The possible contribution a student can make to tlie winning of athletic contests should not be taken into consideration at all In the granting of financial aid of any kind." Heads of colleges are "uHitniUely responsible" for wholesome conduct of intercollegiate athletics at their schools. L Coaching staff members should linve regular faculty tenure "with salaries comparable to the general faculty seulc." Colleges should lake "effective steps" to break efforts by alumni and booster groups engaged in recruiting and subsidization of athletes. The National Collegiate Athletic Association and the American Council of Education have devised similar programs but the North Central Association hopes to achieve specific results with the weapon of nccrcditnlion.
