U. S. Pat. Off.) By JACK CUDDY United Press Staff Correspondent New York (U.E) Veterans Lon Warnekc and Claude Passeab of tho Cubs are working on the longest strings of flawless fielding efforts by pitchers In major league history; yet neither cares a hoot about them. Warneke, 63, has stretched his major league record for the most consecutive chances accepted by a pitcher, without error, to 222 Meanwhile, runner - up Passeau 34, has accepted 216 chances in t row without a bobble. Becausi Passeau is pitching more regu larly, he Is expected to take over the record coon. The (lawless twins were ques tloned about their streaks in thi Polo Grounds locker room after yesterday's doubleheader with the Giants. Warneke, a tall, weathered blond, had pitched one Inning the opener without accepting chance. He said, "what's that re cord you are asking about? Oh that fielding thing. Somebody mentioned to me once I had some sort of a fielding mark; but I don t know anything about it. I'i more interested in trying to wl some ball games." Lon, who was In service lai season, has pitched only two In ings in the current campaign. 1 addition to yesterday's lone tram he worked an Inning on June ! against the Cardinals, and accer. ed one chance successfully. Passeau appeared puzzled when asked about his chances of beating out Warneke for the record. The tall, dark - haired, sharp - featured Mlsslssipplan declared. "If approaching some sort of a fielding record, it's the first I've of It. And 1 don't care about It anyway. I'm Interested in win - nlng ball games; and I might say been mighty lucky this sea - "Lucky?" Inquired the reporter, remembering the No. 13 on the back of Passeau'a blouse. "How's that?" "Well, this 1b the first season I've been bothered by a sore arm: yet I've won eight and lost only two. And you can thank a strong infield aod a good outfield for most of the eight I got credit for. I've been mighty lucky, and I hope It keeps up." The reporter asked what was wrong with Claude'B ami. Passeau explained that ho had a chipped bone In his right (pitching) elbow the delayed result of getllng a fractured elbow In a (ootball gamo 19 years ago. "Sometimes It sure hurts when I'm pitching In the early Innings of a game," he continued. "I hope I can last cut the season before 1 have an operation (o remove the chip." The news man remarked that Claude seemed to ho In better condition this year than. last, in BPlte of his elbow. Claude opined maybe, it was because he got in a little spring training this year, whereas in '44 ho couldn't report until 10 days after the campaign upeneu oecause ho couldn t gel help on his "tung nut farm." It seems that Passeau has a 640 - acre farm near Lucedale. Miss., where he raises tung nuts. The oil from these nuls Is needed by the government In wartime because It Is used in making paints, lacquers, plastics, electrical sun - plies, etc. Anyway, Passeau and Warneke are working on flawloss fielding strings, which seem about as Important to tho two moundsmcn a? corset cords.

Byron Nelson Wins Another Title to Equal Jones' Success By WALTER BYERS United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO, July 2. (UP.1 John ,ron Nelson, a former railroad auditor, today ruled golf with the sweeping success by which Bobby Jones dominated the game In 1930, the year he completed his Immortal grand slam. Not since "Emperor" Jones and his famed putter, "Calamity Jane" aptured the I?ritish and American Open and Amateur championships more than two decades ago has any golfer taken such a stranglehold on the game as Nelson, the tall, powerful Texan with the ice nerves and mechanical swing. Now a Toledo, O., umbrella salesman, Nelson has won major tournament In America the exception of the Los Angeles Open and he has captured most of them going away. He won his first Victory National Open, the wartime substitute for GRAYSON'S SCOREBOARD (Harry Grayson, NEA Sports Editor.. U away on specinl assiynmi CJOT weather and hot pennant races have combined to make hot tempers in both major league circuits, and It things continue at this pace we are likely to see a record numbei of beefs, brawls and bruised knuckles before the flag Closest approach to a full scale riot was that affair in SL Louis when pitcher George Caster of the Browns fired a pitch into the White Sox dugout, hopeful it would make solid contact with a Chicago player who owned a rather caustic tongue. Caster missed his man but lit the fuse for a bout which saw half the Brownie team invade the Chisox bench for a round of fist - swinging. Result: $550 in fines and an old - fashioned lecture from Will Harridge, American League president. A few nights later the usually placid Dixie Walker surprised even Brooklyn fans, who are used to anything, when he threw his bat into the dirt and tackled Ewald Pyle, Braves hurler, with tntentions of violence. In backing up a play at third, Pyle had tripped Goody Rosen, Dixie's teammate, who was streaking for the plate. Walker figured it was done purposely, gave Pyle a good pummeling before they were torn opart. "It was worth it," exclaimed Dixie as he ponied up a $75 fine. "That Pyie is a nasty fellow." pATCHER AL LOPEZ of the Pirates was also parted from $75, the result of treading on the U. S. Senator HORIZONTAL 2 Crawled 1 Pictured IT.

Menze was named successor to George Veenker, who has been director for tho past 12 years. Veenker has disclosed no plans for the future other than a desire to take a long rest. For the present, Menze will con tinue to coach baskelball. Under the new regime, the present staff will remain unchanged for tho time being Chick Sutherland will continue as head baseball coach and assistant football coach. A. M.

Lopez claims Barr questioned his courage on a play at the plate. "Bucky Walters, softrtempered hurler of the Reds, finally blew a fuse oh umpire Lou Jorda and was ejected from a ball game for the first time in eight years. Bucky tried to stretch a double into three bases, was called out, and shoved Jorda about the infield to illustrate his displeasure. T ITTLE Mel Ott, usually a peace - loving man, was in a I frothing rage when he slapped pitcher Bill Voisclle with that unfortunate $500 fine, later withdrawn. And the most publicized row of the year was the one in which Leo Durocher was accused of having a fan dragged out of a box seat so that his jaw could be quietly broken under the stands. This case, postponed by the courts because the fan finds it difficult to mumble through all those wires, has already seen Leo spend a few unhappy hours in the Flat - bush bastile. It all adds up to a turbulent debut for Happy Chandler, the new baseball commissioner.

Nelson undoubtedly Is the great est medal player the game has ever known, although many ex perts question his match ability. He will have a chance to squelch those doubterB next week at Dayton, I., when he plays in the National P. G. A. championship, which he won in 1940 a couple of years before he started his record breaking antics. Freddie Corcoran, P. G. A. tourn anient manager who has seen them all (or years, said. "Nelson'; mark Is the most amazing alnci Jones and his scores are the mos remarkable In the history of thi game." To watch Nelson play golf Is like watching a nerveless, mediant cal master, making phenomenal shot after shot. He neve bad shot, the crowd, or an oppon ent's score fluster him. He fired a four - under - par 68 and then coasted in with a 70 on the last 36 holes of the Victory National yesterday as McSpaden's game collapsed In the face of Nelson's ruthless par - busting. McSpaden, who shot a 6S in the morning ronud, cracked on the third holB of the final 18 when he hit his second shot into a creek to eventually take a three - over - par 7. McSpaden's hopes for his second straight title faded with that hole and Nelson completely blacked them out when he teed off shortly after for his final round and made an eagle - three on th first hole, sinking a 75 - yard pitch shot. That's tile way he plays golf McSpaden went to take twe lioglea on the outgoing nine and tc finish with a two - over - par 76 Claude Harmon, Detroit, finished third with 139 - 70 - 74283, followed by Sgt, E.
