COURIER KTEWS IHlting?°NoS IBt>S " JOE REICI1LER AP Sports Writer tlle those woo picked New York and Brooklyn to. win the pemlants pro- p'cted Ihe Yankees would win on .their pitching and Ihe Dodgers would cop on their hitting. Today, with fewer than 40 days lo go, the Dodgers own a comfortable S'J.-gnme bulge over (he St. S Louis Cardinals in the National * League race and the Yankees have a two-game edge on the Cleveland Indians in the American. S And ft hasn't been the Dodger y. hitting nor the Yankee pitching. At present It doesn't appear that i either club will have a 20-i;aine a winner this year. The Brooks' trail | the Cardinals in team hitting but they Jcad bolh leagues In team fielding. By completing a double play Sunday in renting the C;ndinnlr,, 10-1, to snap St. Louis' eight-game winning streak, they broke a . league record, completing a twin t killing In their 19th consecutive game. Tl:e Yankees trail Washington and the Chicago White Sox by one J point in the American with a learn [5 fielding percentage of .919, but § are far and away in front in fe double plays In both leagues with « 152. . r > Rally Beats Tigers They failed to complete a twin f - killing yesterday ns they came from behind to nip the Detroit Tigers, 4-2, and pick up a full game on the Indians, who dropped a Jo-inning 8-8 marathon to the Senators in Washington. Two ninth-inning Giant errors gave Cincinnati two unearned runs and a 5-4 first game decision. The Giants managed to get a split in the doubleheader, winning the second game, hailed nt the end of seven innings by darkness, 6-3. ?$ Boston's third-place Red Sox ,k moved up to within four games of fj|'the Yankees, sweeping a pair from J :£ the St. Louis Browns, 2-1 in 10 ;| Innings and 12-1. Philadelphia's ;| Athletics divided a doubleheader i| with the White Sox. The A's came IQ back to cop the second game, 5-1 ijl after the White Sox had taken an !j; 11-7 opening slugfest. »S The Philadelphia Phillies and :| Chicago Cubs split a twin bill as i.jj did Pittsburgh and the Boston •g Brnves.

Another Old Name on Chicks 1 Roster; This Time It's Craig Another name familiar to Blytheville's veteran football fans has popped up on the roster of the ctiicks. This time it's Craig, a name that* . _^__ was symbolic to high school athletics for more than two decades at Blytheville High School. The names belong to Dick and Joe Craig, Jr.. who are sons of Joe CraigT who was a member of Blytheville's firsl football team In 1912 And from 1912 until the late 30's. the name of .Craig, like the name of Mosley, very common to Blytheville High School athlet- Joe. Jr.. and Dick are the seventh and eighth Craigs to play football for the Chicks, joe was (he first, then came Jack Craig in the early 30's. Then Pete, who is one o'f Blytheville's football immortals. He played from 1927 to 1931. At the same time, J. T. Craig was wearing Ihe maroon and K'hlte nf (he Chicks. Two Were Guards Joe, Jack, Pete and J. T. were brothers and all were backs. Then in 1935 the name of Craig popped up twice more In the form of O'Neal and Everett Craig, nephews of Joe, jack. Pete and J. T. O'Nral and Everett were guards and they played from 1935 through 1938. And now comes sons, nephews and cousins Dick and Joe; Jr. This is the first year in football for both. They grew up on the West Coast where their father ran an athletta club for young amateur boxers. Last year, however, their father sold his West Coast interest -and moved back east. Now father Joe wants his two boys to play football at his high school alma mater. And they may do just thnt for. In spite of their lack of experience, both are looking good In pro-season training.
