Stock Jockeys Open Sunday at Alton Speedway By all indications, the 1954 stock car racing season is shaping up as the biggest in the history of the local throttle stomp- ers. Howard Rider, president of the Alton Slock Car Drivers, Inc., and Steve Marko, promoter, have set the opening of Alton Speedway for this Sunday evening. Rider stated that at the last regular drivers' meeting, some 40 pilots indicated their readiness to stab and steer for another year. He added that with a field of 40, competition will be keen since only the fastest 24 cars are used for the featured races. The slower boys are more or less fodder for the "dog" races held for non-qualifiers. Last year local fans certainly got their fill of spills and thrills and proved their liking for what they saw by turning out at the rate of 2,000 per race night. Promoter Marko hopes to bolster this figure with the aid of a special committee made up ol drivers and officials that will map out racing programs several weeks in advance so thai "tag" races, elimination, anr pursuit events will be scheduled regularly. Since the gals have taken a great shine for the roll 'em and wreck 'em crew, something has been planned to give them a part in the proceedings. A stock car queen and four maids of honor will be selected by audience vote to reign over the final champion ship race of the year. The cuties will be voted on by writing their names on the rain stubs each Sunday night. The bevy of beauties will be narrowed down to five over a 20-week period, and every sal from eight o eighty will be eligible. To the uninitiated, stock car means what It says: A standard automobile 19!t7 to 1954 vintage vith nothing done to the engine. In the Alton Association no high- ift cams, locked differentials, light flywheels, oversized tires or other devices can be used. The only things added to the car are strictly for saloty purposes: Roll over bars and safety Ijelts. All upholstery and glass must be removed, tmd drivers are required lo wear regulation racing helmets. Gas tanks are five-gallon cans mounted on the inside of the car. Before every race, all cars and drivers are inspected by H member of the safety committee. Officials for Hie seHson's racing will be Krl f.ewis, scorer; Gerald Rober.son. timer; Ken Wikowsky, announcer; ( and Charlie Hargraves, flagman and starter. Hargraves, who lives In Cottage Hills, will replace veteran Bert Brldgernan of Decatur who retired after 25 years of flagcing races all over the state. Paige Baker, Kaston, t h e winner of the 1953 championship race, will be on hand to get hi share of victories this year along With Burr Watson, One "Bogeyman" Hanner, Jack Tharp, Lou Thery, Elmer Brunaugh, Paul Doak, Mac MrOowan, Ruslj Bell, Mel Tiek. Charlie Booten, Harry Farmer. Tom Lcfler, Join Allison, and all the other speed merchants. The nine e\ent card will ge underway with time trials a 7:30 and heat races beginning at 8:30 p.m. A 15-lap seniileature and 15 car 25-lap feature even will highlight the program.

Only games scheduled. rookies, no matter how common, always have been curious items to this department. Whenever you speak of these well-heeled juveniles who come up to the majors, the talk invariably turns to the major bonus flops — fellows like Dick Wakefield, Paul Petltt and Frank House. Petitt, in particular, always interested us. Just the other week, lie was released by the Pirates — who Ainiilfitano gave him $100,000-to Hollywood of the Pacific Coast League. If Pittsburgh owner John Galbreath can afford to toss money like that around for a minor league, the notion here is to make a serious pitch to him for thp outright sale of both the Brooklyn and Golden Gate bridges. This interest caused us to take a gcxxi look at Joe Amalfitano, who is destined to spend this season, and probably the next one too, seated comfortably at a far end of the New York Giants' bench. Amalfitano, who got a cool $30,000 or so for signing a Giant bonus paper, serves as a striking example of the odds a kid slacks against himself when be enters baseball that way. As Leo Durocher's New Yorkers streamed onto the field be* fore a game with the Brooklyn Dodgers, a sturdy round-faced youngster trailed behind the pack and when he reached the bench he sat down quietly. "Oh. I like the idea of being up hero," the 19-year-old kid from southern California sain. "And 1 think a guy can learn up here, il he slays on ihe ball. Alvin Dark and Leo and Henry Thompson all the guys, they've been show Ing me things. • "I'll just sit around here this year and watch them and then maybe get a chance to break in to a game here and there an< pile up a little experience. I was so nervous while in spring train ing at Phoenix that J couldn't buy a hit, but 1 think I'll settle down and maybe make the grade after » while." How is he going to learn to play baseball while sitting on the or him at present is something defies explanation. You ust don't watch the way Carl Irskine throws a pitch and then top up there and begin to hit Im. Nor will all the words of wisdom Al Dark can give teach fie kid shortstop how to make a :ouble play pivot correctly. When the Giants signed Amal- itano, they probably were fig- ring the way Casey Stengel did dien the Yankees handed first acker Frank Leja a whopping lonus. Stengel felt It would be for the letter if Leja went Into the Arny as quickly as possible so lhat he kid could at least get two 'ears of service baseball expert nee before coming to the Sta- lium. Amalfitano doesn't figure o be called up immediately be- •ause of a physical disability, as 'ar as the Army is concerned. "When the two years that Vmalfitano has to stay with u: ire up, the chances are the kid vill have to get some farm expe- in order In the fourth before Western made its bid in the bottom of the frame. Wayne Tolen got the inning off to an auspicious start with a triple to left but wound up being tagged out at third on a rundown after Ralph Wilson tried a squeeze bunt. Wilson .got to second while the speedy Tolen was chased down after several tours up'and down the third base line. Milt Hao- ger's single to center scored Wilson. While Jim Karnages fanned, Haeger got safely' to second on an attempted steal when the Codasco shortstop lost the ball on the tag. Don Kiss followed with an infield hit and Woodward doubled home both runners with a smash to right. That tie was quite temporary as the Cella-Engelsmann combination went to work in the fifth. Charlie opened with a single and Bill exploded a home run into the distant reaches of cen- crfield. A walk, sacrifice, lassed ball and single brought lome Franc with a third run to un tho load to 6-3. Singles by Engelsmann, Franc and Foster, a triple by Mickey Medwick, two walks, a stolen )ase, an error on a dropped fly n right field and a wild pitch pere used by the Rams to add six more tallies in the seventh. Western did no further damage to Foster after the fourth. Benjamo Barona and Tolen got singles in the fifth but Barona was thrown out trying to steal and Tolen was picked off first by lefty Foster's smooth move. Kiss reached third in the seventh on a pair of errors and a stolen base but expired there when Foster sandwiched strikeouts of Woodward and Barona around a foul out by Bob Miller. The husky Codasco lefthander struck out 14 Western batters, didn't give up a walk and allowed only six hits. His mound opponent, Woodward, picked up one strikeout, walked five and was clipped for 12 hits. The Raiders' next baseball outing will be at John Burroughs in St. Louis county Wednesday afternoon at 4:00. anyway," points out Gar•y Schumacher of the Giants ront office. "So what the rule ms done to him is set his career 5ack two years. If he could ge some good farm play unler his selt we believe he would be a ine player." Amalfitano doesn't seem, on he face of things, too worrier about the strange situation he Is i-aught up in. Of course, it's pret y tough to worry much abou Anything once you stick $30,000 or so into the bank. "The situation will resolve It self, anyway you look at It,' Schumacher says. "Right now the clubs can't afford to keep more than one ol these kids 01 at a time. They take up the piac of a player who might help. Bu there's nothing the matter with a good bonus kid if he make* your club some day. "Of course, it is a lot better to fin.d a Mel Ott or a Mickey Mantle and sign them up for carfare." Military Academy, 2. Louise Suggs Takes First in Zaharias Open BEAUMONT, Tex. IP — Sweet- swinging Louise Suggs of Atlanta held her fifth championship today as the ladies PGA winter tour came to a close and the gals ol the fairways scattered for their homes — all except Babe Zaharias, who has a date with her doctors for a physical check. Little Miss Suggs wrapped up the Babe Zaharias $3,500 Open Sun day with a par 73 over the 6,219 yard Beaumont Country Club Course. It gave her 224 for the 54 holes and brought her J700 more for her bulging bank account, mak ing her the top feminine linkstei of the year. Mrs. Zaharias, who made a gal lant bid for the championship o the tournament named for iiei here in her home town, said tin checkup with her doctors \va: "routine" and indicated she ex pocted no adverse report on he progress from an operation fo cancer here a year ago. The Babe, who had been com plaining of tiredness in the fina rounds of tournaments along tin tour, has said she won't be bad on the golf swing for six week at least. Reports around the tour nament here were that she migh have to have another operation bu she said Sunday, as she shot a 7 to finisli second in the tournamen with 226 that won her $300, tha she was feeling "grand."

Cards Finally Break Ice With 6-4 Win Over Cubs CHICAGO /P —The St. Louis lardinals finally broke the ice in r>e 1954 National League baseball eason which, as manager Eddie tanky says, is better. Better, of course, than losing hreo straight — including a 23-13 lasting by the Chicago Cubs Satur- lay. The Cards recovered from that opsidcd licking by turning in a •4 victory over the Cubs Sunday, .coring all their runs with a come- rom-behind sixth-inning spurt iimaxed by rookie Tom Alston's hree-run pinch homer. Vic Raschi, he former Yankee, thus was credited with his first National .eague victory. The Cubs and Cards had a second game scheduled but it was called 'after two scoreless innings secause of darkness. Although Stanky was interested ?nough in Sunday's activities to jet himself thrown out during the big seventh for debating too vigorously one of umpire Abe Ballanfant's decisions, it's obvious that and his Cardinals arc still thinking about their showing Satur- day. The Redbird manager didn't RO on record with his reaction to lhat display. But his terse "well, Dial's bet- ler" comment on Sunday's victory indicated it will be a long time before Stanky forgets the previous day's drubbing. Nor, for that matter, will his players. Red Schoendienst, veteran second baseman, described the record 3 hour and 43 minute marathon as "the worst game I can ever remember playing in."

"They're yitching 'em where I'm swinging," said Jim Greengrass. The slugging Cincinnati outfielder boasts a .611 batting average but didn't know it until he was told. The 26-year-old Redleg leftfielder who was taken out of the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Milwaukee Braves after hurting his back on a slide into second base, is ruining National League pitchers with the season less than a week old. He's rapped 11 hits for 23 total bases in 18 official trips to the plate and driven in 12 runs. His production includes two home runs, six doubles and three singles.
