First games will be played next Tuesday night under the lights at the North Park diamond. Because of an increase in the number of teams entered from 12 last year to 16 this year, it will be necessary to play six nights a week instead of four, as formerly, Gegenheimer explained. Two games per night will be played with the first to start at 7:30 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and at 8 p. m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If the diamond is open, {hey may be started earlier upon agreement of both managers, it was stated.

After completion of scheduled play there will be ''a best-of- three series between the two first-place teams for the city championship and then a single elimination tournament for all 16 teams. •The managers agreed on the following rules: Players must live or work in Decatur County; a 16-player roster is turned .in by the third game; a team will forfeit if at least nine, players are not present at the starting tune; the 15-run margin rule will be employed after five innings; pitchers may have only three warmup pitches between innings; a batter is out if he hits five foul balls after his second strike; no alcoholic beverages will be allowed on the. premises and no one who has b'een drinking will be permitted to play; and players can be ejected at the discretion of the umpire for arguing or unsportsmanlike conduct.

Cliff Bergere Heads 100-Miles-Hour Club INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Cliff Bergere, who holds the record for miles logged on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Wednesday night was elected president of the exclusive "100-Miles-an- Hour" Club. Bergere succeeds Art Cross who presided at Wednesday night's annual racing banquet here. The club honored drivers A. J. Foyt and Ebb Rose for outstanding contributions to racing during 1964. Foyt is the defending "500" champion and a four- time national driving titlist. Rose was honored for the aid he gave when fellow driver Jim Hurtubise was badly burned in a crash last summer at Milwaukee. The club is made up of drivers who finished the 500-mile race without relief and at an average speed of at least 100 mph. "Bergere, who retired from; racing in the 1940s, logged 6,130 miles at.the Speedway- in- ifi races. 3 .550 3 .528 4 ,512 4% .459 6% .436 7% .405 9 .286 12% 3, Minnesota Chicago Detroit , 21 17 Baltimore 22 18 Cleveland 19 *'' Los Angeles 21 20 Boston 17 20 New York 17 22 Washington 17 25 Kansas City 10 25 Wednesday's Results Minnesota 9 Boston 7, night Kansas , City 6 Baltimore night ms Los Angeles 2 Washington l. night Cleveland 3 Chicago 2, night New York at Detroit, ppd., rain. night Thursday's Probable Pitchers iTk" first defense Minnesota at Boston - KaiF ™ lirst ° (34) vs. Morehead (3-3).

Doncari McDonald of Bangbr, a member of the Maine Boxing Commission" conceded Wednesday that referee Jersey Joe Walcott "got a little mixed up" when Clay landed his short right that sent Liston sprawling to the canvas. McDonald wondered aloud why Walcott didn't suspend the count of knockdown timekeeper Francis McDonough when Jersey Joe was unable to get Clay to go to a neutral corner. "Walcott could have suspended the count and started over again if he wanted to," said McDonald. "He had the power ' - "' right in our supported by „ , _ former New England middleweight champion who served as a judge at the fight. "If that was an amateur fight, the referee would have to do that.

This is the second year for the summer baseball program, which is for boys who will be on the Pirate varsity next spring and is designed to develop their full potential, Gegenheimer stated. Bill Espy and Alan Goddard are slated to be the starting pitchers against Waldron Saturday. A schedule of about 15 games is being completed. "When 12 Count I checked tne timekeeper 1 (iMcDonough) hie told me he 'had already 'reached 12," said Jersey Joe, who had been invited to attend a Clay press conference Wednesday at nearly Auburn but never showed up. When Clay met the press at a midday interview he expressed hope that "they don't take my record away," referring to the kayo time. McDonald revealed the controversy over the actual clocking—many writers timed the finish at 1:45— would be discussed at a meeting of the commission. However, he indicated it would remain a one- minute knockout in the books. Gov. John H. Reed of Maine, who was instrumental in bringing the fight to his home state after it was banned in Boston, defended it as "completely legal." He commended the state Boxing • Commission "and all other officials connected with the fight," and insisted "they did an outstanding job." State Sen. Donald O'Leary hardly agreed with the governor. He asked the Maine legislature to create a subpoena- powered commission to investigate the bout, which he termed a "debacle." The Senate tabled the request for further consid- justice to an investigation in the waning hours oi" the current session. day, before heading down the Maine Turnpike in his red and white bus, indicated he would like to .give Canadian champion George Chuvalo the next shot at his crown—perhaps in New York this September. 'Me and George are. two good-looking young fighters," said gasseous Cassius. "George is a good puncher and he don't fall from one punch like the rabbit (Floyd Patterson)." This represented a change of heart for Clay, who has deen promising Patterson a title fight' since Floyd outpointed Chuvalo in a brutal 12-rounder at Madison Square Garden in February. Regarding his preference of New York as the site for his next title defense, Cassius said, "It's the' big town, the center of the world, where all the,Ing people are."
