Dutch Leonard rated by Tigers as Sets Detroit down on four hit pitching Last year he cost them the pennant NEW YORK. (UP). Pitcher EmU "Dutch" Leonard moved to the top of the list Thursday as Detroit Tiger enemy No, 1. As if it weren't enough to beat them out of a pennant on the last day of last season, the bald Belgian knuckle bailer for the Washington Senators was back again, doing his best to knock them out of first place this year. His best was good enough for a four - hit, 9 to 1 Senator victory In the Detroit twilight. Then when the Yankees beat the Browns at St. Louis later in the evening, the Tigers had to share first place With the men of Joe McCarthy. THE KNI7CKLER which Leon ard doesn't deliver with his knuckles at all, but which he sails off his finger tips, was working to perfection Wednesday. Paul "Dizzy" Trout, the same pitcher he beat in that 1944 finale that gave the Browns the pennant, got the only hit that hurt, a homer Trout's pitching was another story. Before going out in the sixth, he gave up eight hits to lose his eighth game. The Yankees won their seventh straight and their second in a row from the Browns at St. Louis. 7 to 2. Held hitless by Jack Kramer for five innings, they scored twice In the seventh and five times in the ninth to give Floyd Bevens his seventh win. Vern Stephens hit his 12th homer for St. Louis. The Indians handed Russ Chris topher of Philadelphia his first loss in six games and his third against 11 victories, winning 8 to 2 at Cleveland. He was tagged for 14 hits, including a homer by Mickey Rocco, before Joe Berry A .... 1 i . ... took over in tne sixth. DOLPH CAMILLI. maktnrf h first appearance since leaving the Coast league as manager at Oakland, pinch - singled in the ninth to highlight a three - run rally which gave the Red Sox an 11 to 9 win at Chicago. Boston made 17 hits off three White Sox pitch ers. The Dodgers increased their National league lead to four games, beating Chicago a,t Brooklyn, 6 to 5, when Luis Olmo atoned for missing a pop - fly by singling home the winning run in the ninth. His fielding miscue gave the Cubs two runs. Rookie Ernie Rudolph, third Dodger pitcher gained ms first win. The Giants came out of their slump and the Pirates prolonged theirs at New York. A double , victory, 10 to 4 and 3 to 2. moved the Giants into third place while the Pirates dropped to fifth. Van Lingle Mungo, given 17 - hit support, won the opener for his eighth decision of the season while Jack Brewer gave up only two homers to Lee Handley and Bill Salkeld in taking the second George Hausmann got seven hits for the day and his last, a double which sent home two runs, bea Elwin Roe in the hightcap. SYLVESTER "BLIX Donnelly of the Cards pitched the fines game of his career, beating the Phils on one - hit, 6 to 0, after the quaking Quakers won the opener, 8 to 3. Donnelly, who has three .! a. . . r . ... it a. i i j victories, au oi mem snutouis, held the Phils hitless after Vance Dinges singled in the second.

Rotary croicned Inter - Civic king A new Inter - Civic Club Golf champion was crowned Wednes day evening, when the Lincoln Rotary club outdistanced the three other contending clubs to win the silver cup for the first time in many years. The announcement was made at the stag dinner of Rotary, Lions Kiwanis and Cooperative clubs at the Lincoln Country club, with over 190 club members attending. Rotary golfers nosed out the favorite Lions team by a narrow 8 point margin, with Kiwanis and Co - Operative following in third and fourth places respectively. It was the 24th time the Inter - Civic Club tourney has been held and the second time that Rotary has won out. Kiwanis and Lions being tied for the most times win ning with 11 each. m m m MEDALS for the event went to a newcomer to Lincoln goiiing circles, when Martin Burson shot 76 to lead such well known first flight golfers as Bill Murrell, C.

Despite Tommy Holmes, the Reds won two at Boston, 5 to 4, in 10 innings and, 4 to 2, with a three - run seventh inning in the nightcap. Holmes sent the first game into extra innings with a three - run homer, while his double gave the Braves both runs off Howard Fox in the nightcap. Runners set for AAU. go High school stars sharing spotlight NEW YORK. (UP). The nar rowing gap between collegiate and improving high school athletes was illustrated Thursday as eight scholastic runners were placed among the seeded start for the national AAU track and fieid championships at Randalls Island this week end. Despite an impressive array of college and service athletes, the schoolboys took eight seeded berths in seven events of Friday's junior championshipsopen to all comers who never have won a national title. They also placed two speedsters in the senior championships scheduled tor Saturday. Rated equal with their col legiate competition in the seniors were Perry Samuels and August Erfurth, both San Antonio, Tex., high school boys. Samuels turned in a 9.5 clocking, fastest of the year for the 100 - yard dash, and is ranked along with Barney Eweall and Herb Thompson, former national sprint kings; navy's IC4A champion, John Van Velzer, and Bob Crowson, Missouri'! Big Six tltleholder. a 4 TWO OTHER high school boys, Zane Moon of Kemmerer, Wyo., and Bill Mathls of Washington, are rated as threats In the sprint field. Erfurth, another Texas scho lastic wonder, is seeded along with South American Champion Julio Ramirei of Uruguay and Navy's Clyde Scott in the 110 - meter high hurdles. Seeded in the 800 - meter run are Defending Champion Bob Kelly of Illinois, NYU's Stanton Callender, Henry Williams of Los Angeles and Floyd Cuff of the San Francisco Olympic club. But another schoolboy, Steve Orfanedes of Canton, O., is rated an outstanding threat. JIMMY HERBERT, the hardy New York perennial; Herb Mc - Kenley of Boston and Ken Shauer of California Tech were seeded in the 400 meters with Defending Champion Arky Erwin of New Orleans and Tom Moore of San Francisco ranked in the hurdles over that route. In the 200 - meter hurdles the seeds are Navy's Scott, Joe Scott of Los Angeles and Ed Petorello of Rhode Island. The high school boys crowd in for many more seeded spots in the juniors and the ranking is based on performance, not on a small field. Placed In Friday's Junior heats are Samuels, Moon and Ed Brent of Los Angeles in the 100 - meters against Tom Dickey, LSU; Charles Beaudry of Marquette and Bob Crowson of Columbia, Mo. Seeded at 200 meters are Ted Jackson, Akron, O., schoolboy and Charley Temple, Pueblo, Colo., high school Collegiate rivals there are Birger Johnson, Colgate; Crowson and Fred Johnson of Cleveland. Henry Williams of Los Angeles and Orfanedes are the scholastic seeds in the junior 800 - meters, ranked against such stars as Cuff and Callender. And Erfurth draws a 110 - meter hurdle assignment along with Jack Morris of the New York A. C. and Charles Morgan of New Orleans. Lorms walks off with NCAA title COLUMBUS. O. (P). Some where in his school books Johnny Lorms of Ohio State must have read and become convinced that the shortest distance between two ooints is a straight line. Certainly he operated on mat theory Wednesday as he ham mered out a 4 and S victory over Johnny Jenswold of Michigan to win the 1945 National Intercol - lfffiata snlf chamnionshin. He was "Down the middle Johnny" virtually all the way in his triumph over Jenswold, a 22 year - old naval trainee from Du - luth, Minn., who for two years in a row was about to step into the throne room. Last year Jens wold was beaten by Louis Lick of Minnesota in the final match. By his victory, Lorms, son of Charlie Lorms, Columbus golf professional, and a brand new graduate from Ohio State's den tal college, gave the Bucks a clean sweep of the N.C.A.A. title honors. They previously had won the team championship and the qualifying medal. Ak - Sar - Ben racing WEDNESDAT'S RESULTS. VTRST RACE, five, turionn.

Struck enemy number 1 Jug blazes in Victory open CHICAGO. The fancy fire works that introduce the Chicago Victory National open golf tour nament Thursday left a fuse sputtering merrily on Harold "Jug" McSpaden's pending title defense in the $12,300 feature at the Calu met Country club, McSpaden Wednesday blasted a five - under - par 67 to boost two of his three partners into the half way lead of a 30 - hole carnival to determine national pro - amateur pro - woman and pro - senior cham pions preliminary to the 72 - hole open which starts Friday, v. as the TiiKtE!

SUMMIT, N. J. (UP). It may sound sacrilegious to associate prayer with prize fighting, but the prayers of hundreds of well - wishers will accompany Welter weight Champion Freddie Coch rane into Madison Sauare Gar den's ring at New York Friday night when he tackles rugged Rocky Graziano in his first im portant bout since coming out of ma navy. Hera at Ehsan's camp, as Cochrane concluded Thursday a record training period of nearly nve months, prayers featured the written, telegraphed and tele phoned messages the champion received from admirers makinu this perhaps the most sentimental bout in modern history of the fight game. According to the communica tions, theae prayers are being offered largely because Cochrane is a champion who was maligned by lane sections of the preaa and the public while he was a combat sailer In Uncle Sam's navy for three and a half years. The flood of communications received at Cochrane's camp reveals that the public has not reconciled Itself to Insinuations by certain boxing writers and columnists that the red - headed ex - sailor man from Elisabeth, N. J., who fought un selfishly for his country In the South Pacific la a "bum" and a cheese champion,1 Since Cochrane courageously made an issue of thii at Monday's luncheon of the New York boxing writers, a total of 1,428 communications have poured into this camp, bringing consternation to camp attendants and to Manager Willie Gibtenberg. Bushy - haired, unshaven, Gil - zenberg, who is known as "the beard," said Thursday, "I was never a very religious feller, but I feel like getting right down on my knees and praying with the grand people who are backing Freddie with their prayers. This stuff makes my eyes cloud up like an auto windshield on a wet night And I guess the best thing I can tell his friends is that Freddie is sharp as a razor and that he will belt hell out of Grai - zano." Red - headed Cochrane, of the ice lion - eyes and magnificently muscled body, looked "sharp" Wednesday as he concluded boxing in the Hillside gymnasium with two colored sparmates Vic Chambers and Clint Miller. His left hook was clicking with the same effectiveness that wrested the welter crown from Fritzie Zlvic on July 29, 1941, and his straight right was speaking with new authority. e e Altho Cochrane Is 30 years old now and out of important action for nearly four yearshis legs seemed as nimble and tireless as ever. He scaled 144 pounds, about what he expected to weigh Friday night. Not only did he receive com - as regular as your favorite timepiece, day in and day out, rain or shine, we're tackling one of the toughest transportation jobs a transit com pany has ever been called upon to handle.

LINCOLN SX, Thursday, June 28, 1913 'Potsy9 Clark has landed good job, also shoivs Huskers out to tcin next season BY LAWRENCE PERRY CVsnaalldatM New FOatnreo. NEW YORK. Out of the navy or toon to be Lt. Com, George "Potsy Clark has been named as the 1945 head coach of Nebraska football. This means that Potsy has landed a good job and it also means that the Cornhusk - ers are going seriously into the matter of winning football games next fall. Top - heavy defeats last fall by Minnesota, Indiana, Kansas and Oklahoma give a fair line upon the way affairs have been going at Lincoln since war began and Col. Biff Jones departed on leave of absence to run athletics at his alma mater. West Point. Colonel Jones's contract Is still good at Nebraska, where he was both, athletic director and head coach, but were it not for the way Folsy is pulled here and there over the football domain I would say that the colonel stands a chance alim, I think of getting his salary paid for years he has still to coach with Clark serving as coach in his stead. But the throne at Lincoln is a target for disaffected partisans and slings and arrows have been directed at Colonel Jones both while he was at Lincoln and after he departed. munications from well - wishers, but some of them came to his camp. For example George Ca - zana, promoter from Knoxville, Tenn arrived and Invited Cochrane to go on a two week's fishing trip, after beating Graziano, with Alvie Ball, millionaire sportsman of Middleburg, Ky. Among other visitor! was Steve Creek, food products wholesaler of Jacksonville, Fla., who brought with him a great silver key to the city of Jacksonville eent by the Florida city's new mayor, Frank Whitehead. Cochrane said, My training is finished. I'm in swell shape. I'm boxing better and faster than ever before and hitting a lot harder with both fists. My hands are in perfect condition. I'll take good care of this young Graziano. He's a good fighter; but he's young and inexperienced. He's a dangerous hitter, but he telegraphs all his punches whether they are loopers or swings. I love telegraphers some of my best friends work for Western Union." Wings play host to G. Island Friday Heartened by holding the Second Air Force Falcons to three runs in their game last week, the Grand Island Robots invade Muny park Friday evening with the idea of taking a victory from the Wings. The Wings will have to go to work Friday to upset this hardhitting G. I. crew and Larry Wolf, holder of a one hit triumph over Kearney, may get the starting nod. Lefty Tustin, Wing first sacker, isn't fully recovered from a char - ley horse which has been dogging hira for several weeks and it may be that Dave Tucker will start at first base. Other than that there aren't any changes in the lineup likely. In hitting drills this week Buzz Buzzinotti, Goose Tatum and Bob Perugini put on a display of long distance hitting that bodes no good for opposing pitchers. Buzzinotti has been hampered by a broken finger but seems fully recovered. Courtesy LINCOLN JOURNAL WHEN BIFF LEFT Lew Le - wandowskl was put in as football coach he has previously been basketball coach, a position he will retain and director of ath letics which he will continue to be. Now he hands over the pigskin to Clark who ia as fine a coach as the nation can produce. Potsy was an able backfield man under Bob Zuppke at the University of Illinois and when he was graduated he familiarized himself with conditions in the Big Six of the Missouri Valley as headman of football at the University of Kansas, 1916 - 1? and subsequently from 1921 to 1926. Zuppke called him back to Urbana as an assistant in 1926 and he has subsequent attachments at Minnesota and Butler. His professional experience was with the Detroit Lions and the Brooklyn Dodgers where he acquired a headache so painful as to cause him to .vow to keep away from the mercenaries for ever and aye. He probably won't have a wealth of material to coach at Lincoln, but what there is he will make the most of. He is a clean - living, upright, honest, inspiring little chap and he has all the ins and outs of football at hit finger ends. Wings blast out win over Kearney . Smashing out 22 hits off four Kearney hurlers, the Wings nabbed a 17 to 9 win from the Raiders Wednesday evening at Kearney. After the Wings tallied once in the first inning, Kearney came back to count twice to take the lead. Inman, making his first start of the year, kept the Raiders un der control as his team went on to pile up an overwhelming margin. Three more markers were added in the fourth and ninth while a seventh inning barrage of hits was good for a half dozen scores. A home run by Goose Tatum in the eighth was the game'a big blow. Tatum also cracked out a triple among hit assortment of five hits. Wing ab r hi Raider ab r h PeruKtn! If 8 8 3' Sokol es 4 0 0 Tustin lb 18 3 Price 3b 111 Madrid se 0 8 IIAlessandro S lit 4 1 1!
