AII r *j r i T iAf« OU Friday Seeks To Win 4th Straight Track Title Old Spitball Pitcher Is 78 POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) —Edward A. (Big Ed) Walsh, one of baseball's greatest pitchers, will celebrate his 78th birth day Thursday and he figures that cancer and all, "I've got a few innings of living left" A year ago, everybody thought the old Hall of Famer member's days were numbered. Today, his chances of complete recovery remain dubious. "But I'm looking at things better now," the one-time scourge of the American League told a visiting reporter. "I'm still good for a few more innings." Big Ed's career began 55 years ago and ended nine years later. In 1908, his darting, slipping pitches won 40 games for the Chicago White Sox. Now bedridden, he remains wrapped up in the sport that brought him fame. While whining 195 of 311 games, he established a reputation as a great spitball pitcher, and he admits that if he was pitching today he would be a "cheating spitballer." Walsh has long opposed the spitball ban. all Ted Not Unhappy With Hitless Day BOSTON (AP) — "I'n be right, the hits will come." Ted Williams was not disappointed Tuesday night after going O-for-5 in his first appearance of the 1959 season for the Boston Red Sox. The 40-year-old defending American League batting champion, coming off a neck and shoulder ailment which bad forced him out of action since March, said: "I'm satisfied with my efforts for my first game back. I'm not tired. In fact I feel real good," he said after playing in the home forces' 4-3, 12-inning loss to Chicago which lasted 4 hours, 23 minutes. "My problem was that i was bitting bad pitches," Ted added. He struck out twice, popped up to the infield, drew an intentional walk and twice grounded out.

The Los Angeles Dodgers won their fourth in a row Tuesday night, beating Philadelphia 3-1 behind the five-hit pitching of young Danny McDevitt. That gave the Dodgers a half-game lead over Milwaukee although the two clubs are tied percentagewise (.600). The Braves lost 7-3 to the Chicago Cubs. St Louis kept Cincinnati from making it a virtual three-way tie by beating the Reds 7-4. Pittsburgh defeated San Francisco 6-5 in 12 innings. No one has together more been than able to put four-game string in the National League. The Dodgers now have won seven of their last 10, and McDevitt has two of the three complete games the pitching staff has produced in that span. The 26- year-old lefty (2-1) had a two-hit shutout until the eighth inning when Willie Jones hit his seventh tome run. McDevitt walked none, fanned six. McDevitt singled home the Dodgers' first run in the fifth after user Gene Conley (1-1) had pur- Josely passed Don Zimmer. The Dodgers scored twice in tfiat frame, getting the other on an error. Duke Snider singled home he final run in the eighth off re- iever Jack Meyer. The Cubs handed five-game winner Lew Burdette his second loss in a row, scoring five in the ninth at Chicago on a home run by Walt Moryn and pinch hitter Earl Aver- Ul's first grand slam. Tony Taylor also homered off Burdette. Don Elston (1-1) won it with one inning of scoreless relief. Rookie righthander Gary Blayock hit a two-run homer and won his first for the Cards, although needing Bill Smith's relief after Vada Pinson's two-run double fin- Oo You Know We can furnish any Oil Filter Cartridge for trucks, cars or tractors. CURBY AUTO SUPPLY 424 S. Main CB 2-3224 ished the Reds' scoring in the seventh. Brooks Lawrence (3-2) was the loser after winning three in a row. The Pirates, shut out on three hits for six innings by Johnny Antonelli, put it away with three runs'in the 12th. Gordon Jones (12), fourth of six Giant pitchers, was the loser. Bennie Daniels, who lost his first decision as a starter Monday night, won this one in relief, although roughed up for two runs in the 12th on two singles and three errors. Two of the boots were by Bob Clemente, whose single proved the clincher for the Pirates.
