S—(UP)—For most of the early part of this season it seemed that baseball's second year jinx had caught up with Frank Overmire. ' It'!; an old diamond superstition that the second year in the majors Is the toughest to get by. And Lefty Overmire w of the Detroit Tigers found the going rough as ho started this campaign under a barrage of base hits. The stubby rocking-chair ; kid couldn't suum to boat anyone. He lost four straight before Anally winning one against the Washington senators on May 20th. But lately he's caught pennant fever, along with the rest of the club, and he's been winning stc'adlly for the last six weeks. Last year Overmire moved up to the Tigers'from Beaumont of the Texas league. It was only his third $345 Nelson, NcSpaden Take Tex, Golf Lead Dallas. Tcxns.

By that time he'd lost nlcvcn games while winning only five. After that he added .something new to his stuff on the mound. He's been mixing his pitches up—using a variety of fast and slow stuff. And Frank's new style has been keeping the "batters in a fret His charge of pace is winning gr.mcs his fast ball lost before. • This turnabout 'makes things easier for the Tigers' two twenty- games-plus -\yinr.ers—Dizzy Trout and Hal Ncwhouscr.

United Prens Sportn Stuff When Lawson Little wag still an amateur 'golfer Walter Hagen culled him one. of the beat, match play contestants in the world. • ] The veteran Huvcn said: "It'l be u sad, day for the pro's when that kid gets to banging al them in match play, He's unbeatable, Little had thorn all saying "Uncle" as an amateur. He won the British amateur title in 193-i, and then became the first American ever to win it twice in 1935. The big slugger from the Pacific coast wrapped up American titles Loo— more than he could count. And then he made the jump to the other side of the fence. I-Ie became, a professional to , teach tho game, and to play in tourna- menls for cash prizes as well as cupo. .for a while Little didn't burn down the woods as he had been expected .to. Most of the tournaments he entered ran on the medal-play basis. Total scores counted—: it w'aan'l. a mun-agiiinst-man battle for ouch hole. Little did very little winning. Most of his vic- tories'came in match compctiit'o'n. '. There, was tn'c San Francisco national match play—he won lhat one. He went to the'quarter finals of the dog-eat-dog 1 play, at Belmont in 1037. And then there was the international fuur-bu.ll Miami in 1937— that was something 1 for 1 the books. ' • ..Tho four-ball game is almost the same 'as 'match play. And in the morning round Little showed that he knew how to make the shots ho hud to make. Little and Johnny Hev'olta reached the sixteenth hole, and then f-tovolta bc.'tcd himself onto the green, just two feel away from the cup. Sinking lhat two footer would give Johnny an eagle—two under pur—for the hole. • Little reached the green in the same number uf strokes. But his •pill lay 20 yards away from the freon. ^Rovolla didn't have lo make that two-foot shot —Little conceded it. The white ball bounced over the green and rolled into the cup for a matching eagle. And Kevolta wondered just what lie had to do to bent the guy; Poor RevoKa did some more wondering on the 1 38th hole. That last hole, was a long .and far-away par-five job. Lawson Little holed out a J2-footer on that one for an oaglc three— the firs: time anyone had ever made the hole in three." Little and -Tony Manero went Into the last. IS holes of tho match with a cwo hole lead over Revolta and Henry Pi card. But when !hcy comedown to the .'ast hole—the 3Cih—-played ove; hat same long number IS—Little's side needed to hole to win the ' match. This time it was Li!tic and Picard slumming over that 065- yard testing ground. Both men whistled their drives fair and long- down the fairway. And a couple of shots later here's how they lined up. Plcard's ball lay Ihroe feet from the cup—-he had taken three strokes. He was certain to sink his short putt for a birdie four. Little's ball w:ts 30 feet from the cup in two strokes. If Lil.tie could sink the ball from 30 feet away his side would take the match—if not it would drag on. Little didn't think lie could make the shot. Twilight was taking over the course—and Liciic stalled for a couple of minutes, hoping the sun would go down and keep Pic- •nrd from dropping in that o.'t'iy three-footer. But after ten nrTn- utes Little saw that ii, was useless—the sun seemed to be reluctant to go down before the match was over. ' : " So Lawson Little sleppetf up to little ball and hit it. The ball rolled -over the 30 feet of velvety grass— r and dropped in for the ses- ond eagle ever scored on that hole. And Liltle had won another one.
