Whitey Ford Goes 14 Innings To Win 1-0 By ED W1LKS Atioclated Press Sports Writer Stout-armed Whitey Ford went U Innings for the first time in his major league career Wednesday night and beat the Senators 1-0. He proved there was nothing much wrong with the arm that rendered him virtually ineffective during the last month and a half of the 1958 season. troll, 10-1. The Chicago White Sox stayed third, smothering Kansas City 20-6. Boston beat Baltimore 8-4. He o15 and gave up only seven hits in a shutout duel with Bill Fischer and Cuhck Stobbs. It wasn't broken up until Bill Skowron rapped his third home run of the season with one out in the 14th, That left the Yanks two games behind the clubbing Cleveland I dians, who again battered De- Ford, SO, walked seven, but gave up just one single from the fifth until the 14th. Then, after Skowron had ended Stobbs' hitless relief job, Ford was touched for two hits before putting away his 13th victory over the Senators in 14 decisions going back to 1954. Young Gary Bell (2-0) breezed in with a seven-hitter for the Indians, who have rapped Detroit pitching for 24 runs and 31 hits in two days. Jimmy Plersall drove in the first four runs off loser Frank Lary (0-2) with a bases-loaded sing.e in the third blast and rookie Gene Leek, play' ing His first major league game, socked a two-run homer. Tlic While Sox hustled from be lind after the A's had chased Early Wynn with five runs in the sec ond inning. They made it a roul with 11 runs in the seventh off three pitchers—needing but one hit while benefiting from 10 walks (one shy of the record), a hit bat ler and three errors.

The Red Sox wrapped it up with five runs in the fourth on four singles, a walk and an erroi against loser Arnie Portocarrero Tigers Hungry For A Slugger DETROIT, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Tigers, hungry to apply $100,000 in first aid to a battered team that lost eight of nine games are shooting in all directions for a much-needed slugger. So far the Tigers have been rebuffed everywhere. General Man ager Rick Ferrell said Wednes day night he has had unsuccessful trade confabs with the Washington Senators, Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees. He plans to try the Kansas City Athletics soon He said Washington had spurned his bid of $100,000 and a front line pitcher for Roy Sievers. Sic verSi an outfielder-first baseman belted 39 home runs and drove across 108 runs for Washington last year. The Tigers, in losing all but one of their first nine games, have left 74 base runners stranded They have hit only eight homer, while their pitchers yielded 19. Ferrell declined to name th pitchers he offered. But it wn and a two-run homer in the fifth (0-2). Murray Wall (1-0) won it Rocky Colavito added a three-rum in relief. Burdette Appears To Be Back In Old Form By ED WILKS Associated Preis Sports Writer Lew Burdette has found his "at em" ball again. He misplaced it when he was unfrocked as a Yankee killer last October. It was the "at 'em" pitch-the nitch that made it easy on the fielders because batters hit it right at 'em-that the big right dander credited when he won three from the New York Yankees as Milwaukee won the 1957 World Series. He still had it last season, when he became a 20-game winner for the first time. Then he lost in last fall's World Series, twice taking his lump: while the Yankees staged a startling cornback by winning the last three games. This season, Burdette has picked up where he left off last year, and so have the Braves once more leading the Nationa League. Burdette put them believed to be Jim Banning, Paullgamo in front Wednesday night Foytack or Billy Hoof I. !?iving up eight hits but outducllng Griffith said in Washington the Chicago White Sox had offered him $250,000 in players and cash for Sievers, pitcher Pedro Ramos and an unidentified third player.

(AP) — Las Vegas 1 most respected sport event, the $40,000 Tournament o Champions, gets underway toda with a crack field of 26 golfers The betting favorite in the 72 hole, seventh annual event was Gene Littler of San Diego, wh captured the $10,000 top money o successive years starting in 1955 Latest figures on Littler were 51, while the "morning line" on Art Walls Jr., recent Masters champion, and Arnold Palmer, the 1958 Masters ruler, quoted at 6-1. Cary Middlecoff and Billy Casper Jr. the latter runner-up here last year, were listed at 8-1. Littler's victories at the Phoenix and Tucson Opens this winner qualified him for this event, while Wall, the hottest golfer in the game today, won five tournaments dating back over the past 12 months and through the Masters Drake Relays Open Friday DBS MOINES, Iowa.

Webb Carves Up Neal Rivers CHICAGO (AP) _ Slashing Spider Webb has spun himself into a corner as far as the middle weight title is concerned. Webb wove his 33rd victory against only 4 defeats Wednesday night with a fourth-round technical knockout off Neal Rivers, but it got him nowhere in his pursuit ol Sugar Ray Robinson's 160-pound championship. Webb carved Rivers into bloody submission in 1:49 of the fourth round in their scheduled TV 10- rounder. With mystery surrounding Rob inson's future p'.ans concerning a middleweight title defense, Webb apparently must sit out in the bleachers and wait for something to happen. If Robinson, under court pres sure, decides to defend his title his opponent obviously will be Carmen Basilio, the man he de throned March 25, 1958. If Robinson is stripped of hi title, the Natibnal Boxing Assn will call for an heir-apparen match between Basilio and Gen Fullmer, the winner to meet thirc ,-anked Webb. In the third round of Wednesday light's one-sided match, Webb floored his Las Vegas, Nev., foe for an eight count with a sizziing right to the head. Rivers, however climbed back on his feet and exploded a right flush to the chin which sent Webb reeling from the middle of the ring into the ropes. Webb shook off the desperation punch, grinned and continued to carve Rivers' gory visage. Webb, a 4-1 favorite, weighed 158 and Rivers 169. Afar Souvenir fo Remain Inside RICHMOND, Va.

Did the Indians who surrendered the land to the whites- 23 million acres between 1833 and 1875—get a fair shake? These are questions the Indians Claims Commission must answer rom evidence at a hearing here. The Pawnee Indians contend the $1,087,163.45 paid to the tribe by ;he United States for the land in Kansas and Nebraska wasn't enough. Through a year of research, . along with a core of associates, appraiser E. B. Horton of Denver has tried to pin a price tag on each of the 23 million acres.

LOUIS (AP) — Don Jordan, the still-hungry champion, puts his welterweight title on the line against erratic but dangerous Virgil Akins Friday night in a revival of the ancient boxing argument of who's better — the slugger or the boxer. The oddsmakers have done nothing to settle the argument. They are calling the fight even—5 to 6 and take your choice. Akins, a somber and silent puncher, is ready for a desperate bid to regain the crown. The 24-year-old champ is anx'^us to prove his December victory over Akins in Los Angeles was no fluke. Jordan, part • Apache, and one of 19 children, has gathered in a little loot in the way of endorsements and appearances. The fight is hard to figure because the career of the 31-year-old St. Louis fighter is so checkered. Akins has been up and down all the way. A crowd of about 7,500 and a gate of about $50,000 is predicted in 11,000-seat Kiel Auditorium. Jordan has won 44 of 55 fights, 15 by knockouts. Akins has won 49 of 69, 2<9 by knockouts, with 19 defeats and one draw. Cleveland New York Chicago Hoston . Baltimore 5 B •»«> ,..

Their chances of getting out, from the start, were nil. Lt. Col. John C. Blake, executive officer of the state police, heading an assault force of 125 troopers, said when asked if negotiations were considered: "I never negotiate with anyone; we were here to get them out and restore order." The troopers drove the malcontents from the first to third floor of a wing of the prison, like sol dicrs assaulting pill boxes.

To evaluate the land as it was then, Horton and others have flown over it or traveled across it by car.

(AP) - The Naval Academy will commission 800 officers at graduation ceremonies this June — six of them as second lieutenants in the Army. A new law permits a certain number of graduates of each service academy to pick any branch of service. Preference in picking Army careers was given midshipmen who served in the Army or are the sons of Army men. Two of the Army-bound middies are the sons of Army colonels, but one is the son of an admiral. That's Right, Son, Mother Is The Law LAFAYETTE, Ind.
