Request FORT OHD, Calif, ff -Army Pvt. Billy Martin, seeking a hardship discharge, is encountering opposition from his sports loving commanding genera), MaJ. Gen. Robert McClure told a news conference Monday he is recommending that the New York Yankee star second baseman's discharge request be denied. McClure said Martin's name is among those being forwarded to Washington Saturday for reassign-, ment, possibly overseas. Said McClure: "Martin came to camp driving a baby blue Cadillac. Anyone with a car like that can't be broke." Put Martin, who got out of the Army after five months' service in 3952 on similar grounds, told a different story. The 1953 World Series star said money earned in past years was "not so much and it's all gone." - As a private, he gets 580 a month and $135 a month for dependants.

LOUIS A' —Roy Campanclla, who has caught all 11 games for Hie Brooklyn Dodgers this season with a broken bone in his left hand, plans to stay in the regular lineup despite the spring training injury. The injury was revealed for (lie first time Monday by Dodger vice- president E. J. (Buzzie) Bavasi in New York but both he and Campy minimized the seriousness of Hie break. "J don't think it's affecting my bitting," said the stocky catcher, "but when I swing it just doesn't feel right. Every time l break my wrist on the swing it hurts. I've got my wrist taped tight so it won't twist too much." Campy is batting only .JtB with one hit in his last 'JO limes al bat (iiis season. Campanula* was [he National League's most valuable player last season with a .312 bat- ling average, l# runs batted in and 41 homers. Qampanella was hit by a pitched hall during the early spring training. X-rays taken in Tampk showed no break, Bawasi said. Further JJ. rays taken April 16 showed a break in a small bone on the bapk of the catcher's left hand.

Lyle Dorsey Flings No-Hitter at Kahoks COLLINSVILLE - Behmd the classy no-hit pitching of Lyle Dorsey, the VVpod River Oilers returned to the winning trail by (lumping Ihe Collinsvillc Kahoks, 2-0 here Monday afternoon. Dorsey walked five batters but only Shot-win Whitlow managed lo get as fnr as second base. In the meantime, Dorsey fanned five. The Oilers had (heir troubles with Wayne Gavillet, the Kahok hurler, but put together a pair of long hits with a walk in the third for enough runs to win. Frank Wagner was out, trying to bunt for a hit, to open the third. Ron Tillery drew a walk and promptly stole second base while Boyd Sever fanned for the second out. Dorsey helped his own cause immeasurably with a double over Whitlow's head in left field, scoring Tillery. Junior Affsprung. followed with a triple to bring, home Dorsey before Gary Schil- linBer ended the drive with a ground out. Colllnsville's only threat came in the seventh when Whitlow and Bruce Quayle walked with one away. This mild menace was quietly erased when Henry hit into a double play, Affsprung to Schillinger to Ken Hierrnan, to end the game.

Spoiler Slade exposed Jackson's weakness with flashing counter- fire while winning a unanimous 10- round decision Monday night at Brooklyn's Eastern Parkway. Judge Bert Grant had it 7-3, Judge Americo Schiavone 6-4 and Referee Barney Felix 5-4-1. The AP card also was solid for Slade 7-3. It was Jackson's second defeat in his 10-bout career.

New Gasoline Additive— TCP Seen Boosting Power up to 15% Engineers find misfiring corrected, power- robbing deposits neutialited by new dwcovery Pow&r you thought you'd never feel again—short of a major overhaul—can now be yours without touching a tool to your engine, Shell Oil Company engineers report. This, they find, is because the major cause of power loss in the majority of engines—pre- ignition and misfiring —can be overcome r>y the new additive blended into Shell Premium Qas- oline and sold under the trademark TCP. Cause of power low explained The facts, Shell explains, are these: every conventional gasoline leaves deposits of lead and carbon that sap the power of your engine. When you accelerate, these deposits form "hot spots" in the combustion chambers. These "hot spots" set off the fuel charges before the piston reaches Its proper firing position. Called pre-ignltion, this causes power to work against you, not (or you, says the com- p«ny. The insulation at the tip of your spark plugs accumulates deposits, too. Here, because the deposits conduct electricity, they short-circuit the spark plug. The plug misfires. The fuel, unburned, is wasted power. How TCP works What Shell Premium Gasoline with TCP does, say the engineers, is "fireproof" the deposits in your combustion chambers and prevent wasteful pre- ignition. Power works for you. At the same time, TCP additive makes spark plug deposits harmless, the engineers find. They no longer short-circuit the spark plugs. The plugs fire when they should, burning, not wasting, your gasoline. As a result, a restoration of power up to 15% is claimed for both "old faithfuls" and current models driven only a few thousand miles. These benefits, Shell points out, makes Shell Premium with TCP the greatest gasoline development sine* ,the introduction of tetraethyl lead. TCP, a Shell-discovered addl. tive to Shel] Premium Gasoline, is available exclusively at Shell •3 v> l',i I'/a 2', 2 2'a 3 5 .545 .53« .500 5 .500 .545 .458 fi .455 .500 .417 5 .444 .500 .400 5 .444 .500 .400 8 .385 .429 .157 YESTERDAY RESULTS Open date for all clubs.

That's one of the "facts" the Conservation Department uncover- id in its survey of West Virginia 'ish and fishermen on the opening of trout season. The story was backed by testimony from four witnesses, said Harry D. Van Meter, acting chief of the Fish Management Division. SEE IT NOW!

Denny Long came through in a big way, singling home Bob Hewitt with the winning run Monday afternoon at Riverside Park here as the Alton Redbirds captured an extra inning 6*5 win over Belleville's Marions. Alton had struggled from »1- on John Schut/enhofer's bases- loaded home run in the second inning. The Redbirds finally pull- pd even at 5-5 in the seventh, barley missing out on winning in that frame, before nailing down the ,win in the eighth. Royfe Strouri, who had hammered freely hy the 'Birds from the fourth inning on, was raeked in earnest in the eighth. Hewitt final attack un- dcnvay with a single over SPC- ond base and Jim Leavpll follow- rd wilh a line single to center. \Vhon the Maroons tried to get Hewitt moving around to third on (he hit, Leavell advanced to second hasp. Belleville Coach "Boots" Budde called for an intentional walk of John Sehenato to fill the bases with no one out. Long thereupon stepped in lo slash a drive past Third Baseman Ernie Gaido that brought Hewitt sprinting home with the big winning run. Beating the Maroons was quite a feat for Alton sim-e Belleville sports just about Die strongest outfit in Southwestern Illinois. The visitors had been scored upon in only four out of 12 previous games and had lost only twice by identical '4-3 scorse to Freeburg and Granite City. Don Twitchell 'drew the starting assignment for Alton and pitched well except for a ragged spell in the second. The Redbird righthander got into trouble after two were out. Bill Ihlandfeldt opened with a single but Clyd6 Ramsey and Gaido fouled out. Bill Morton and Stroud singled lo fill the bases before Schut- zenhofer swept them clean with a swipe thet bounced by Left- fielder Jim Leavell for a homer. After that the Maroons cored only in the fifth when Don Taylor triped to left and scored on a long fly by Bob Muskopf. Twitchell allowed only four scattered hits after the second. The win, however, went to Lefty Joe Rittenhouse who came in to pitch the cighlh. .Rittenhouse walked Ramsey and Morton but got safely out of the inning' when Stroud forced Ramsey at third and Schutzenhofer flied out. Alton began pecking away at the Belleville lead with two runs in the fourth on singles by Ken (Butch) Rosack and Bill Graves, a double by Hewitt and a pair of Maroon errors. A walk to Bill Eidson, a stolen base and Rosack's third of four singles in the game added another tally in the fifth. Graves opened the sixth with a tremendous home run to left field and that narrowed the score to 5-4. That last gap was closed in the seventh. Eidson singled over second base and John Taylor went in to run for Eidson.
