BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 1954 Snow Interrupts Tilt Between Bucs, Braves By BEN PHLEGAE AP Sports Writer When you're in last place and you've got a team in town you think you can beat, yoi play the game even if it snows. That seems to be the current theory in Milwaukee. The Braves, who have had a rougf time this spring beat Pittsburgh 6-1 last night in a game interrupted in the sixth inning b) a miniature blizzard. The victory pulled the Braves* out of last place and dropped the Pirates to the bottom. Almost every spring one or more of the major league games are postponed because of snow. Bu the records fail to show one that was started, halted by a snow storm and then resumed. K O Other Games The wintry blasts that couldn't halt the action in Milwaukee knocked three other games from yesterday's schedule and rain washed out a fourth. It was too cold for Brooklyn at Chicago and NeW York at Cincinnati; too cold and wet for Baltimore at New York and too wet for Detroit at Boston. In games that were played, the Chicago White Sox increased their American League lead to a game And a half over Detroit by whipping Washington 8-6, Bob Trice won his fourth straight as Philadelphia shaded Cleveland, 3-2; and the Philadelphia Phillies whipped St. Louis' 14-10 in 11 innings. The Phils-Car.dinals struggle ran 4 hours 31 minutes, finished up in the early hours of the morning and saw a major league record set lor ttoe total number of pitchers. ..•-'. 15 Httrier* The two clubs tossed 15 assorted pitcher,? into the marathon, starting with two of the league's best- Harvey Haddix and Robin Hob- «rts—and winding up with Hal "White for the Cards and Murry Dlckson for the Phils. Dickson got the credit, his fourth , success against one loss since moving to the Phils from the Pirates. Ellis (Cot) Deal, seventh of the record-tying eight St. Louis pitchers, was pinned with the loss as the Phils poured across four runs in the llth. . ;% Spahn Again ' The deciding run came on a walk, a single by Earl Torgeson and a sacrifice fly. Singles by Granny Hamner and Bobby Morgan and a double by Johnny Wyrostek produced three more. Warren Spahn struck out 12 Pirates in the Milwaukee triumph, which came against Max Surkont, traded away to the Pirates by the Braves during the winter. Joe Adcock homered for Milwaukee. A single by Joe Demaestri followed by a walk and a single by Gus Zernial gave the Athletics the run they needed to whip the Cleveland Indians, who had won six in a row. Six of the eight hits off • Trice went for extra bases, including a home run by Al Rosen, but the rookie stayed out of trouble most of the way. A grand slam home run by Minnie Minoso set up the Chicago victory in Washington. Billy Pierce helped his own cause with .a two- run single in the fifth. The grand slam by Minoso was the first in the American League this season. Army Says It Will Check on Athletes By RUSSELL BRINES WASHINGTON (AP) — Chairman Hess (R-Ohio) of a House armed services subcommittee said today "it appears the Army has pleaded guilty" to charges of "coddling" star ath letes after inducting them. Nevertheless, Hess said his sub-1 to play on the post team, committee intends to explore the Featherweight boxing champion Sandy Saddler, who left the service April 20, reportedly fought two professional bouts while stationed at Ft. Jay, N. Y. The subcommittee identified these others whose service records service histories of Dick. Brodow ski, Boston Red Sox pitcher, and nine other top athletes in public hearings starting today. The sessions may run three days. Bauer Cleared Hess said in an interview that Hank Bauer, New York Yankee outfielder, "is not involved" in the probe, adding, "I understand he has quite a favorable record." Batter, a World War H Marine veteran, was first withdrawn from a named, then supplemental Holderfield Gets Decision GALVESTON, Tex. (ff) —Buddy Holderfield of Little Rock, 143, took a split decision from Andreas Balderas, 152, of Monclavo, Mexico, in a 10-round fight here last night. cused from KP and guard duty list of 10 stars which Hess made public yesterday. Hess' subcommittee admittedly made the mistake of listing Bauer, when he said he meant Hank Sauer of the Chicago Cubs. The name confusion came in the release of a second list if 10 stars. This second group may not figure actively in Hess' probe. Bauer saw com bat service with the Marines in World War H. Sauer Denies Charge In Chicago, Sauer denied he was coddled while in service and pointed out that he served in the Coast Guard, not the Army. Sauer said he did play on a Coaat Guard baseball team at Curtis Bay, Md., but that "nobody was coddled in our place." Hess stressed that none of the athletes named is under suspicion, and that the subcommittee is probing only the Army's handling of heir assignments. He added that any of the athletes could request o be heard, but present plans are not to ask them to testify. The Army, Hess added, appar ently confirmed subcommittee harges of preferential treatment »y announcing it would hereafter monitor the service careers of athletic stars. Could • Be Influenced The course of the hearings probably will be influenced by 'whether the Army convinces the ubcommittee it intends to carry •ut" this policy, Hess added. Brig. Gen. Herbert B. Powell ,nd other witnesses have been ummoned to tell now the Army handled the first group of 10 ath- etes, whose records have been probed by subcommittee investi- ators. No K P? Hess said Brodowski's case probably would be heard first. The pitcher, still in service, was assigned to Ft. Dix, N. J., and classified as a light vehicle driver and utility man, investigators said. They reported he has been relieved from duty at noon .and ex- the Army has been asked to outline: Al Knoikowski, New York Giants' pitcher; Ed (Whitey) Ford, New York Yankee pitcher; Edward J. and John T. O'Brien, Seattle University baseball twins; Willie Mays, New York Giant; outfielder; Billy Martin, New York Yankee second baseman; Chico Vejar, welterweight boxer, and Sugar Bay Robinson, former middleweight boxing champion. Lookout Pitcher Loses No-Hitter Lanky Jim Pea re e Sees Attempt Fail with Two Gone in Ninth By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Jim Pearce is the tallest pitcher in the Southern Association at 6 feet 6, but his extra height couldn't keep Len Johnson from taking a no-hit game right out of the Chattanooga righthander's grasp. Pearce had held Memphis scoreless for eight innings and had two men out in the ninth when Johnston, 5 feet 11, strode to the plate and slammed a double. Keith Thomas followed with a home run. Pearce had to settle for a two- hitter, but he had the satisfaction of knowing he batted in three runs in the Lookouts' 4-2 victory over the Chicks. Vols Win Agraln In the only other Southern Association game last night, Nashville won its second straight from Little Rock 5-1. Cold weather forced postponement of the New Orleans at Birmingham and Mobile at Atlanta games. For the second straight night, the Vols came up with a four-run inning to beat the Travelers. This time the outburst exploded in the ninth and it broke up a dandy duel between William (Spec) Padget of the Vols and John Weiss. A two-run double by Dick Getter was the big blow of the inning. Weiss struck out nine and had things well under' control until the ninth inning barrage. Padget allowed the Travs only five hits, two less than Weiss surrendered. Dolph Regelsky tripled in the MAMA KNOWS BEST—Mrs. Georgia Jackson a»d her son were called before the New York Boxing Commission because the Rockaway Beach heavyweight said he told his mother he was going to lose to Jimmy Slade and was glad he did. Mama treated him like a baby, the fighter said, woudn't even let him have a gir] friend. He apologized and was suspended for 30 days because of a swelling of the right forearm caused by a blood clot. (NBA) Birds Not Browns; Turley to Remain NEW YORK (AP) — Jimmy Dykes, the cigar-puffing manager of the Baltimore Orioles, doesn't claim his team is a pennant threat,'but he said today he wants two things understood: 1. Don't confuse the current* Orioles with the St. Louis Browns of last year. 2. Young Bob Turley is oot on the market. "No. sir," said Jimmy, the onetime firebrand who has rnellowec with the years, "this club shoulc not be confused with anything that evn resembled the Browns. We're seventh place, all right,,, but our pitchers have gone all the way in 10 of our 14 games . . . We're not hitting and you can't expect iie pitching staff to carry the club through the season. "We'll Get 'Em" "We'll improve, though. And, et this. We'll go out and get hitters if necessary since the Bal- imore people have money for just such purposes and • won't hesitate d spend it, even for bonus players." Then Jimmy turned to Turley. "That rumor that's been going round that we're going to trade Turley to the New York Yanks sn't true," he frowned "Why, if ve sent him to the Yanks, we'd all have to get out of Baltimore. But we're staying and he's stay- ng. That's understandable. The 23^ear-old speedballer is leading the •najors in strikeouts with 32 in 7 innings. Sports floundup-— record of 27 victories, 2 losses and 1 tie. . Both losses were to Nebraska. "They had a good football team," Stuhldreher said, "but we finally caught up with them on our third year. Their coach, Fred Dawson, seemed to have the same wonderful knack that Knuke Rockne had of making a fellow play just a little better than he knew how." By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) — This coming fall will bring the 30th anniversary of the christening of the most famous football backfield in the history of the game, The Four Horseman of Notre Dame. It doesn't seem that long, but the beloved Grantland Rice recalls that it was on a cold, murky day in 1924 that he watched the peerless quartet of Harry Stuhldreher, Elmer Layden, Jim Crowley and Don Miller rip an Army team apart here and proceeded to immortalize them on his gifted typewriter. Plans are being laid to celebrate the event fittingly when the Irish team invades Pittsburgh to play the Panthers next winter. Stuhldreher, now a steel company executive in that city, will be the host. Terry Brennan, the new coach of Notre Dame, will only be invited to look on and listen, as he had not been born when the Horsemen rode. Three .on Hand Three of the famous foursome- all except .Miller, who had been caught aloft in a . storm and couldn't make it — sat at a table here the other day and batted around the days of; their glory together. All are^ prosperous • and successful men today, with a total of 16 children, or exercise boys, between them. It was good to hear them express their gratitude to Rice. "Granny," said Layden, "no one would remember us today if it hadn't been for you. We would just have been another good backfield. We haven't taken it seriously, but it'a been a lot of fun." BMt Fallback "Monatase," growled the historian, "there hasn't been a greater backfield yet and I don't expect to et* a better; fullback than you were, even if you didn't weigh but 111 pounds."

Phone 3-4409 Ted Williams To Return? Bosox Slugger Weighs Decision to Play BOSTON Iff)— Ted Williams, the last of the stitches removed from his left shoulder, today weighed the question of how soon he should return to action with the Boston Red Sox. The Sox big belter was scheduled to talk with Manager , Lou Boudreau on whether he would make the Western trip with the club starting Monday. Speculation was that he would make his first pinchhitting appearance this weekend and then take up his old leftfield post as a regular somehwere in the western Trainer Jack swing. Fadden removed ;he last three stitches in Williams' shoulder nounced yesterday, then it as sturdy as it pro- was before he broke his collarbone in spring training March 1.

(WHOLESALE EXCLUSIVELY) Rear 213-215 Walnut Phont 3-8353 A recapitulation of points in the District Three Track meet run off at Jonesboro Monday shows that Blytheville came off with the top three high-point men of the meet in Billy Phillips, Tommy Mosley and Red Childress. Word from Jonesboro was that the official scorer had credited Jonesboro'a Don Hindman with five points in the 440 and had failed to remove these points frora Hindman's personal record when the Hurricane runner was disqualified. The scorer did, however, take the points from Jonesboro's team total of 49, which was second to Blytheville's 54. This left Hindman with only six and one-half points, well back in the field. Top man for the meet was Phillips with 12%. He was followed closely by Mosely, who had 11%, and Childress. with 11%. Phillips took & first in the 440, second on the discus and half mile and was a member of the 440 and mile relay teams which finished second. Mosley got first in the 100 and 220, was fourth in the broad jump and also ran on the 440 relay team. Childress had a first in the broad jump, a second in the shot, a third in the 440 and ran on both the 440 and mile relay teams, thus knotting Phillips for placing in the most events. The Mast Toppled WILMINGTON, Del. (#>) — Mrs. J. B. H. Thouron's champion jumper of 1953, The Mast, must have an aversion for the 10th hedge on Delaware Park's course. In both the 1952 and 1953 renewals of the Indian Eiver Steeplechase Handicap, the Wilmington.owned horse was the favorite. On each occasion, the mast sprawled after clearing the 10th jump. He finished third in 1952 and fourth last season. Campy Wrist Operation OK BROOKLYN ($—His wrist operation proclaimed a success by all concerned, Brooklyn Codger catcher Roy Campanella prepared today for a quick getaway from Long Island College Hospital. The most valuable player in the National League last year went under the knife yesterday rather than postpone the operation one day. Dr. Herbert Fett, orthopedic surgeon at the hospital, performed the surgery to remove a bone chip. Dr. Fett told Campanella he would be back in action in about three and a half weeks. Don Kellett, general manager of the Baltimore Colts of the National Football League, played nine games as an infielder with the 1934 Boston Red Sox.
