FRIDAY, SEPT. 11, 1958 BLYTHEVIM.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PXGE Bums Can Cinch Flag Tonight By BEN PHLEOAB AP Sporti Writer The Brooklyn Dodgers, the culprits who kept the 'Braves from winning it, are going to give the Milwaukee fans a chance to see the National League pennant clinched. It could be tonight. It might not be until tomorrow. And of course if the Braves are really inspired the brewing capital population may not get to see H at all. since the Dodgers are In town for only two games. But since an eventual Brooklyn victory ranks close behind .death and taxes as a sure thing, the Dodgers almost owe it to the Milwaukee faithful to win right in front of their, eyes. Mor*. people have seen games in Milwaukee this season than in any other National League city. It has been in Milwaukee that the Dodgers have done the most damage to the Braves. They have won seven of nine starts at the Braves' home field. The Braves topped them 6-5 at Ebbets Field. The "magic number" for the Dodgers Is two. Any combination of two Brooklyn victories and Milwaukee losses will seal the deal for Charlie Dressen's club. Since a Brooklyn victory either tonight or tomorrow automatically would mean a Milwaukee loss things look bright Jor the Dodgers. Brooklyn could have had at least a half share In the pennant nailed down before moving into Milwaukee but it slipped up In Cincinnati yesterday and got beat 6-5 In n innings. The Redlegs battered |£ir v ee. Dodger pitchers for 18 hits 'and finally won. on a gift run In the llth. With the bases loaded and none out Clem Labine walked home the winning tally. The Dodgers broke two home run records although they hit only one home run. Wayne Belardi's blast in the eighth was the 1,101st homer in the National League this season, breaking an all-time loop record. And it was the 195th Brooklyn home run this year, new high for.the club. In the only other National League game yesterday St. Louis edged New York 3-6. The New York Yankees moved closer to the American League title with a 1-0 triumph over Chicago and Cleveland bowed to Boston 14-4 In the only junior circuit action. Eddie Lopat outduelled Sandy Consuegra for the Yankee victo>y with the winning run coming on Gene Woodling's second inning home run into the lower left field stands at Yankee Stadium, At Boston, Cleveland's stretch drive was halted for only the fourth time in 24 games and the Indians fell 10 games behind the Yankees. Any combination of seven New York victories and Cleveland losses will give the Yankees their fifth straight pennant. Ted Williams hit his 10th and llth home runs. In 60 times at bat he has collected 26 hits good for 61'total bases—11 home runs, two doubles and 13 singles. The Cardinals regained sole possession of third place from the idle Philadelphia Phillies with their victory over the hapless Giants. Enos Slaughter's home run in the eighth proved the margin of victory as the Giants rallied for a pair in the ninth. Ex-Players Say Navy Has Stronger Team By GEORGE BOWEN ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Two regulars on last year's Navy football team — former fullback Fred Frarfco from the offensive and erstwhile linebacker Tony Correnti from defense — say their successors are a "better all-around squad." Both finished their college careers as Navy juniors with a team record of six victories, one tie and two defeats. Franco had used a year's eligibility at Brown and Cor- Venti at St. Louis before becoming *middies. They agree that Coach Eddie Erdelatz seems better off from the viewpoint of material generally. "This year, there appears to be a substitute ready behind everyone." say Franco and Correnti. "The backfield generally is stronger," predicts Franco whose four touchdowns and rushing gain of 691 yards led the Navy last year. Joe Oattuso, 175-pounder from Clarksboro, N. J., Is stepping into Franco's running shoes while continuing his linebacking work of last year. "He if a brainy runner and should make the grade on offense," believes Franco. "At the halves, Bob Hepworth (Derry, N.H.) and Phil Monahan (Burlingame, Ca. are good runners. John Weaver (Wausau, Wls.) also can run as well as pass at quarterback." Coach Erdelatz can call for more speed when the situation demands from two sophomore halfbacks Bob Craig (Altadena, Cal.) and George Thomas (Havertown, Pa.) As for defense, Correnti simply points out all seven on the fronl line are letter winners. Six of the seven were first string in 1952 on a line which ranked second nationally in rushing defense. This Includes Steve Eisenhauer (Sheffield, Pa.) who made All- America last year for playing the center of a five-man defensive line. The principal source of the all around strength which impresses Franco and Correnti are 13 sophomores who comprise one-third of the squad. Their development as backstops seems to be the key to Navy's success. Step Saver With Eye Appeal OPEN HOUSE THUR. FRI. SAT. SUN. In 10 steps or l«ss you can get to any room!

Why you need Conoco Super Gasoline with TCP In the average automobile, the by-products of fuel combustion constantly build up deposits on spark plugs and in combustion chambers. These deposits can "cheat" you of power in two ways. First, they actually short-circuit your spark plugs. This causes mis-firing. Second, deposits in the combustion chamber get red hot and cause the fuel to ignite before it should. This is called pre-ignition or "wild ping." The effect of fouled spark plugs and pre-ignition is a loss in power and a waste of gasoline. •hint tntlW fcr k» »«ll OB C*. Combustion deposit! form here, causing mti-flring and loss of power.
