PAGE TWELVF THE EVENING SUN. HANOVER, PA. TUESDAY. MAY 18. 1954 T rotters & Pacers Officials representing 10 county fairs from New York and Pennsylvania met at Vernon Downs, N. Y., last week to formulate plans for a new' series of two- and three-year- old colt stakes, the first of which will be raced for two-year-olds in 1955. They will be known as the New York-Penn Stakes. The tentative format agreed upon calls for the new series of events to work as follows: All fairs wishing to participate will actually be sponsoring the stakes although officials of Vernon Downs hav. agreed to MISS MAMIE COPS YONKEmEATURE Six-Year-Old Mare Triumphs In 2:05^5 In $4,500 Pace —Bertram Hanover Wins $3,500 Event Here’s Baseball Good Arm, Quick Reflexes Make Top Catcher—Mancuso (This is the last of seven stories in which former major league baseball stars tell how to play the game.)

In the fifth jirame of the 1936 World Series against the Vank- ees, Mancuso as a Giant set a catching record by accepting 16 chances.

But he had an overhand sinker that was out of this world. Bob O'Parrell, with whom I had traded jobs in 1933, was a notoriously low ball hitter. Schumacher knew it and I knew it. Despite the fact that Schu’s best pitch was his sinker we decided to pitch O’Far- rell high and inside. He hit the ball into the Polo Grounds seats.

(By The Associated Press) NEW YORK — Featherweight champion Sandy Saddler and Percy Bassett, the “interim” kin«:, had better stick to the 126-pound class from now on. The champ expected a romp against Hoacine Khaifi, a 3 to 1 underdog, last night at St. Nicholas Arena and lost a split decision to the fleet Algerian lightweight. Bassett found himself in way over his head against Orlando Zulueta at Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway and lost a unanimous verdict to the clever Cuban with the snapping left jab who is ranked second among lightweight contenders. French StaWe Scores Upsets Khalfl’s stunning success was the second major upset in four days for the French stable of Jean Bret- tonnel, who saw Jacques Royer, a 5 to 1 long shot, upend Tiger Jones Friday night at Madison Square Garden. Bretonnel was so elated at this latest triumph that he and the fighter took turns leaping into the air in mid-ring. As Bretonnel is a plump 200-pounded, the demonstration rattled the rafters in the ancient skating rink. AP Favors Khaifi 5-4-1 Khaifi used superior speed and a solid right hand punch to offset Saddler’s left hand punching and roughing tactics. Referee Teddy Martin had Khaifi a lopsided 8-2 winner but the other officials thought it was close. Judge Joe Eppy voted for Khaifi 6-4 and Judge Joe Agnello for Saddler 6-4. The AP card found for Khaifi 3-4-1. Saddler weighed 132'j and Khaifi 135 for the bout, which opened the new London Sporting Club as a Monday night 'TV «DuMont) rival for Eastern Parkway (ABC). Zulueta Writes Own Ticket Zulueta, a 13 to 5 choice, won as he pleased over Bassett, avenging two previous defeats by the top- ranking feather contender. The Cuban weighed 135 to Ba.ssett’s 130 pounds. ^ ^ The votes for Zulueta were; Referee Pete Scalzo 6-4. Judge Charley Shortall 6-3-1, Judge Americo Schiavone 8-2, AP 9-1.

TURLEY WILL FACE SEMTOMWOHT Orioles Conclude Home Stand Opposing Washington Nats in T'wo Games Beneath Lights BALTIMORE—While Baltimore's backers buzzed about Sunclay’s hotly contested doubleheader split with the champion New York Yankees, the Orioles todav set sights on their next objective—the Washington Senators The Senators make their initial Bums Bat .259 An(i Score Only 27 In 10 Tilts By BEN PHLKG.AK Associated Pres.s SportsMriter The lesson for todav is how tn move from third to first „u " while averaRinff less than three runs a game over the last ia grames. The instructor is Walter Mston who used to teach school in the >Iidwest and who now is learnint the facts of ma.ior leaRup lif^ „ manaj^er of the Brooklyn Hodfers Alston this sea.son inherited the N'ational League champions whn has inspired fear in the heart« of their opponents with their ; miffhty sluffsinff. The punch wa* so potent the league battinr champ Carl Furillo, hit srventh in the order. By now .'\lston must bp ahoiit convinced the Dodgers did it with mirrors. ■ He has his team in an exact ! place tie with Philadelphia but ! over the last 10 games the I)(xi<^ers have scored a totalo f 27 nm.s, wrt, 1 lO of them coir ine; in a single jiame ; The opposition has scored 31 runs’ : Tiie team batting averaue ha.s I skidded from .280 to .259, The home ; rur production has totaled a mere three. j Rivals Don’t Take Advantage ' Of the 10 games, the Dodgerj ' have won six and lost four. The i victories have come almo.';t entire- I ly from excellent pitching, topped ■ by Carl Erskin’s two-hitter against I St. Louis Saturday. I But the big facotr which has ! allowed Brooklyn to improve us I position has been the inability of : the other clubs tn take advantage of ; the Dodc:er slump. Only the New York Giant.>, now half a game out of first, have made real progress. They’ve won .seven and lost two. But the re.ct of the leaiiue has been boating each other often enough to allow Brookhn to coast uphill. Team Facing: Soft Touch Alston realizes this happv start can’t last indefinitely and for this ; rea.son he’s happy about the im i mediate schedule. The seventh f )lace Chicago Cubs come to Brook- yn tonight for a two-game series I to be followed by the Pittsburgh Pirates, who will be aroimd for five games. Even in such a slump the Dodgen : should win at least five of these I seven. Meanwhile, the Dodgers benefited from last night’s intra-leacue war fare when the Phils and Cardinali split a pair of deci.sions. Philadel phia whipped St, I^uis 8-4 in i if a me completing the .second hslf of Sunday’s doubleheader which was suspended by Pennsylvania cur few. In the regularly scheduled game St. Louis won 8-0. Boston edged Detroit 4-3 and Chicaco defeated Pittsburgh 10-6, The other clubs weren’t scheduled. The Phils owned a 6-3 lead when the Simday game was sn.spended after six innings and thp Cardinals couldn’t catch up against Murry appearance of the American League j3ickt;on season here at 8 o’clock tonight m ¡ Cards Clout Robin Robert* the opener of a two-wme series gj. unleashed its home run which will conclude the Flock’s current home stand. They spend the weekend in Cleveland. Pillette Mound Possibility Oriole Skipper Jimmie Dykes announced that he probably will start Bullet Bob Turley against the Nats tonight. The Bird manager held open the po.ssibility thal he might switch to Duane Pillette, veteran right-hander with a 2-3 won-and-lost record, but it appeared more likely that Turley would be the choice, shooting lor his fifth victory of the campaign. Opposing the Orioles for Washing- power in the full-length contest, I W-^lly Moon, Rip Repul.^ki and Ray I Jablon.<»ki hit for the circuit aeainst i Robin Roberts, who had pitched a one-hitter the time out, and Stan Musial added one against Karl Drews in relief. Ijittle Joe Presko scattered seven hits in registering the first .shutout by a Cardinal pitcher this season. At Detroit, Manager Freddie • Hutchinson of the Tiger,'- went apainst ba.seball custom and or- i dered Pitcher Ned Garver to walk ; the potential tying run. The strat- backfired when Jackie Jensen ton tonight will be Maury McDei- ! TeVt'^field seats f rnott. the angular left-hander who ; lined into the ® _ rnott, the angular won 18 games for the Boston Reci Sox last year before he became a Senator, along with xoni Umphlett, in the midwinter trade that sent Jackie Jensen to Bo.bton, Coleman Works Tomorrow Dykes said that Joe Coleman is his likely mound selection for tomorrow night’s windup in the Thirty-Third Street bowl. The Birds’ 31-year-old candidate for ‘comeback-of-the-year” honors hurled a 2-to-l decision over the Boston Red Sox here Saturday afternoon, following a 2-to-O shutout of Philadelphia earlier last week, to rank among the hottest pitchers in the American League. Coleman had to be relieved by Marlin Stuart in the ninth Saturday when a smash off the bat of the Boston pitcher, Clevenger, numbed the finger.' of his pitching hand. But the big Oriole righthand­ er said the has entirely disappeared. three-run homer that won the game for Boston. Hutchinson’s rea.soning seemJ more justified when you reahze the man he ordered walked was Tea, Williams, who got eight f<'r nine in the Detroit doubleheader Sunday. Williams went in two official trips yesterday. . Hank Sauer broke a 2-2 tie in the f^fth inning with a grand-.slain home run that set the Cubs on the winning trail at Pittsburgh, ^^^^NOÉrLEÀ Chub Brady Elected Waynesboro Coach Attendance—6,281.

Brady will succeed Steve Suhey, who has accepted a similar position at Kingston High School. The Waynesboro school board voted unanimously for Brady after his selection had been recommended by Superintendent Marshy C. Little and approved without a dissenting vote by the personnel committee. His salary will be fixed later^ The Waynesboro directors decided that the new' joint high school, composed of the Waynesboro. Mont Alto and Washington Township school districts, will be known as WaynestKjro Area High School. Team Will Be Indians The school’s colors will be blue and gold as in the past but the athletic teams will be known as the Indians. Waynesboro was formerly th* Tornado and Washington Hanover High School grid luminary, coach of Waynesboro’s entry in the Township was the Bulldogs. Brady, who served for a year as coach of York High School’s grid- ders, was at Washington Township as head football, basketball and track coach the past two years. His grid teams had brilliant records. They won the Laurel League title two years in a row, winning 16 games and losing two. Outlook Brig^ht For School Suhey, All-American while playing guard with Penn State in 1947, was at Waynesboro for three years. His Tornado football teams won two, lost 22, their two victorie.s coming last fall. With Waynesboro and Washington Township being combined, the Franklin County school is expected to return to the gridiron glory it knew when Rip Engle, now coach of Penn State, tutored the Tornado.
