COUNTER NEWS TUESDAY, JULY B, 1951 Y Juniors Blank Tomato on Childress No Hitter Team to District Tourney After Brilliant 2-0 Win Bod (Red) Cliildrcss, regular first baseman of the Blytheville Y's junior baseball team, turned pitcher yesterday and pitched himself a neat no-hitter.

Childress weavcd his pitching gem behind the near perfect fielding of his team males to nllow the Juniors to linns up their 11th win of the season against six losses. Childress never faced more tlinn three baiters in any one inning despite the fact (hat lie walked two and hit one batter. Only font runners reached base and all but one were erased on the base nnlhs. The Juniors backed up Childress 1 effort wtlh a six-hit attach on Dunham, who went the route for Tomato, And Childress aided his own cause by colleclinR one of those six hits and scoring one of Blytheville's two runs. The game was a tltjhl pitching duel between Childress and Dunham. Dunham held Blythcville scoreless until the fourth when Childress tripled to open the inning and then scored on nn infield out. The Juniors' other run came in the fifth when Charles Ray Hall was safe* on a fielder's choice and Ralph Long doubled him home. Shortstop Bobby Lee Hill paced Blythevillc's six hit attack with n single ami a double in three times at bat. Charles Garner and Jackie Hnlslend got Dlythcvlllc'.s other two nils.

Fortune Gordicn of MicncajjoIJs, world record holder in the discus, needed three throws to achieve the required distance in this morning's qualifying round, but he finally made it with a heave of 1C5 feet, 1.94 inches. That left him some five feet behind Adolfo Consolmi, Italy's defending champion, but it topped the best efforts of the other two Americans, both of whom qualified with their first throws and didn't try any more. Sim In ess of the University of Southern California did 160 feet, 5.23 inches nnd Jim Dillon of Alabama Polytechnic Institute and Upper Sandusky, O., pitched 157 feet, 2.65 inches. These marks were comfortably beyond the minimum distance "of 150 feet, 11.6 inches required to qualify for this afternoon's final. Jack Kelly of Philadelphia nnd the U.S. Navy gave rowing fans one of their moat thrilling spectacles in his "repechage" or second-trial heat in the single sculls, but the finish photos showed he was beaten by Theodor Kocera oC Poland.
