The Road'Runners came back to win the nightcap, 3 to 2, behind Sam Gray's five-hit hurling. ' The Oilers were slightly weakened! yesterday by the absence of Gotdon Nell, b.lg first baseman who Used; to sport a Road Runner unl- fyrm. Nell- underwent a tonsillectomy, a ,week ago but a hemorrhage Saturday night kept him out of the game until the ninth inning when he hit for Ryba. The big fellow lashed out a single to put a runner on third base. "The-Road Runners pulled to the front-in the first inning. McNabb, first hitter, was' an easy out. Summers singled on the first pitch: and Seitz duplicated. Manager Hale popped up to first..

The Oilers collected a pair of hits in the ninth when Wiljingham beat out an infield hit and Nell singled to left center' field, after two were out.

BY ALAN GOULD, Associated Press Sports Editor. NEW YORK, June 15 (O*)— Amid he rapidly accumulating evidence hat Uncle Sam's athletes will set a dizzy pace for all rivals in th3 Berlin Olympics, Don Lash's world ecord-smashing two miles stood orth today as not only the year's :reatest foot-racing performance, but me of the most remarkable of all ime. The 22-year-old Indiana collegian lot only surpassed one of the great 3 aavo Nurmi's supposedly impreg- wble marks by running the distance n 8 minutes, 58.3 seconds on Prince- on's rain-swept track last Saturday, )Ut he became the first American ver to gain world renown over the wo-rnile route. For the first time in foot-racing history, the United States now can ilaim all world records for the itandard linear-measured events ranging from 100, yards to two miles, with.Lash joining the record-brcak- rig company of Frank Wykoff and Fesse Owens in the sprints, Ben Eastman at the 440 and 880-yard distances, qnd Glenn Cunninghayn n the mile. Simultaneously, Lash's victory projected America's hopes of conquest, .he first time, in the Olympic 5,000 meters, an event in which Finland's ilipremacy has long been asserted. ?our years ago a lanky Oregonian, Ralph Hill, came within a stride of carrying America to triumph, at Jos Angeles. Lash, on the basis of lis electrifying development under the! coaching of E. C.

VlffiftH SMASHES RECORD SET BY GREAT PAAVO NURMI Chicago Cubs Win Eleventh Straight As Dizzy Triumi Cardinals' Lead Not Cut Down Even A Fraction BY SID FEDER, Associated Press Sport.; Writer. When batting might hooks up with pitching strength on the same baseball combination, fireworks are the general result. That's the answer to the current pell-mell parade of those climbing Chicago Cubs, now riding high, wide, and handsome on top of an 11-gnme winning streak, longest run in the big leagues this season. The big question mark now is: Can they continue, away from Wrigley field, as they've done at home? They start the eastern swing tomorrow, and thereby probably hangs their hopo for catching up with the pace-setting St. Louis Cardinals by July 4. The long, successful home stand ended yesterday with Frank Demaree's two homers accounting for all the runs as the Boston Bees fell 3-2 and Lon Warneke chalked up his third win of the victory streak, his second straight 7- hitter in five da'ys. The triumph, however, didn't cut down the St. Louis 3'i-game lead even a fraction. The Gas House Gang hooked up in a wild slugging spree with the Phillies and came out on top 12-10, as Dizzy Dean, going to work with only 24 hours rest, went in as a relief pitcher to end the game. The two leaders pulled away from the third-place Pirates, as the New York Giants snapped their own 3- gamc losing streak and the Biles' 7- straight winning run at the same time, with Hal Schumacher turning in a 5-hit performance lor un 8-0 edge. Winding up the league program, the Cincinnati Reds climbed to a .500 average for the campaign by trimming the Dodgers, 5-1, on the strength of Lee Stine's 4-hit hurling job. With the Yanks-Tigers nnd St. Louis-Boston battles rained out, the American league saw the Athletics knock the Indians into fourth place with an 8-6 victory, advancing Detroit to third, while Vernon Kennedy's tight pitching gave the White Sox a G-4 margin over the Senators. 75,000 EXPECTED TO WATCH BIG KILL ON THURSDAY NIGHT NEW YORK, June 15 (#•)—Joe Louis, a 22-year-old coffee colored boy from Detroit who has made the fight fans shell out money in million dollar chunks to see him fight even when they felt sure he couldn't lose, is expected to do it again at the Yankee stadium Thursday night, "The Dark Destroyer" a professional for less than two years, is scheduled to face Mex SchmelinB of Germany, former world heavyweight champion, in a 15-rouncl bout at the Yankee stadium with 75.000 or more persons paying a milion, dollars or close to it to see the fight. And. strangely enough, few if any of them expect to witness anything but a quick knockout victory for Louis. That was the case when Joe fought Piimo Camera last summer and when he fought Max Baer before a throng that paid just a little less' than a million. He was expected to score a quick knockout each time and ho did it. stopping Baer Camera in six rounds and in four. Yet so great has BIO FE DALLAS June 15 (/P)— This, briefly, concerns the tale of two rather large feet . . . two pedal extremities, that plodded a long, rocky road before they planted themselves in the velvet. Golf experts tell you it takes large' feet to .be a championship player . . . Don Schumacher, stubby, care-free Dallas youngster, qualifies . . . you might say—in a big way . . . for years he has shuffled over many courses, grinning while his friends chided him ahout the length and breadth of his feet. Don, as Texas' new amateur golf champion cares little nbout the chiding .today . . . limping around on feet that ached after being pinched in the broiling sun by a new pair of shoes, Schumacher buried Bill Skeeters, former S. M. U. grid star, 8 and 6, in the finals Saturday at Son Antonio. Back in 1932, Don started attracting attention by breezing to the finals,of the state junior tourn- ament ... It wasn't quite his time however, and he lost the title to Jack Lee of Orange. In 1933, Don played one of the greatest tourney matches on record in Texas golf ... he bumped in exactly eight birdies in a semifinals match with freckled Halbert Grumbles in the same junior joust ^and lost on the third extra hole . . . next year the tournament was his, however, and he's been hot after the senior title since. Only 20, Don is a popular champion . . . well liked by everyone and a golfer the pros say "swings just like Bob Jones," the boy with the big feet has arrived ... in fact, he arrived with the gallery at the state tourney even before match play had started . . . after a par 72 in the qualifying round, Don hastily jerked off his new shoes at the home green and walked leisurely to the clubhouse barefooted! been the drawing power of this young negro who came out of the midwest to restore to boxing its "big money" days that no. one has complained of the brevity of his battles. The attitude of the funs was neatly summed up by one of Joe's Harlem admirers, overheard as he left the stadium after the Camera EXPORTERS BURNING UP TEXAS LEAGUE IN RECENT GAMES ffiy Thn Asaociulorl Prwn) Where they play today: Oklahoma City at Ilouston (night). Dallas at Beaumont (day).: Tulsa at Galveston (night). Tort Worth at San Antonio (night). The Dallas Steers, who were winning games with such regularity several weeks ago that it appeared they would run away with,, the Texas League bunting, are holding, for dear life to their lead .over, the other clubs today.
