LINCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND August 10, I May Be Wrong By Dick Becker Sunday Sport Columrist It is obvious that those suggesting split seasons for the major leagues been associated with them in any way. With New York and Milwaukee threatening to make runaways of the leagues, a couple of promoters have come forth with the idea of the split. Take it from people who know, a split season accomplishes nothing. The Western League split it's season in 1956. The result was an abortive year which saw the same clubs prosper in both halts.

The rewards of a playoff are not enough to the split. When the Western split its season, it was supposedly to aid the weaker clubs who had fallen off the pace. But in the split the same clubs were ahead in both halves of the season and a team like Sioux City couldn't hack it anyway. Prestige to Has I One fan likes the idea of Lincoln in a league to the East. He writes: Certainly Lincoln should join the teams to the East.

The Nittany Lions will be after their 20th straight inning record. Not since 1938 has State lost more than it won. The over-all record is 114 wins, 44 defeats and 8 ties.

Even though the years immediately preceding 1938 were years at State, the Lions still rank with the top 15 teams in the country for the 25-year period from 1933 through 1957. Middiecoff Captures Milwaukee Margin I A 4i. Jennings Milwaukee if Crafty Cary Middiecoff of Hollywood, burst into the 54- hole lead of the $35,000 Milwaukee Open Golf Tournament Saturday with a 13- under-par 197, thanks to a course record 29 on the back 9. The 3rd leading money winner in golf history with $235,711 in 11 years as a pro made sure he would tee off today on the final round with a comfortable lead of 3 strokes.

Open, carded 4 birdies and an eagle on the final 9 at the par Tripoli Golf Club. He canned a 40-foot putt for the eagle 3 on the 475- yard 11th hole. Three strokes behind diecoff heading into final at the drenched, breeze-swept vard Tripoli layout were Bill Casper of Apple Valley, and Bob Goalby of Belleville, 111. Both shot 66s Saturday for 54-hole totals of 200 Sharing the 201 bracket were Joe Conrad of tonio, and Paul Harney of Worcester, the 29- year-okl pro who was tied with Middiecoff at the end of 36 holes with 131. Conrad took a 66 while Harney, who equalled the course and tournament record with a 63 in the opening round, needed an even par 70.

All atone at 202- 8 strokes under Bob Rosburg of Palo Alto, Calif. He also fired a 66 Saturday. Middiecoff, whose 29 was the 3rd of the current pro tour, took a 2-over 37 go- ing out. But coming in was! a different story. He closed with a dropping his 130-yard 2nd shot 2V2 feet from the pin with aj wedge on the 18th.

He stepped up and rammed home the, putt for a birdie 3. His long-, est successful putt of the day was the 40-footer for the eagle.

Lincoln Wins Mile 2'Mile Record Holder Edinburgh, Scotland W) With Herb Elliott among the spectators, Merv Lincoln of Australia set a highland games mile record of 4:06.8 Saturday over a grass track soaked by heavy rain. Elliott, the 20-y a 1 Australian who registered the best time of 3:54.5 in Dublin Wednesday, planned to return to London Sunday.

had a very exhausting week and I want to burn myself he said. He said his future plans were uncertain. Lincoln, who finished 2nd at Dublin in 3:55.9 for the 2nd best world time, won the Highland Mile the easy way. He remained in 4th place for two of the 5 laps, then surged ahead midway through the last lap and won by about 15 yards from Derek Ibbotson. The time was 4:07.9.

Mike Berisford of Scotland was 3rd in 4:08.1, and Alan Gordon, also from Scotland, was 4th in 4:12 8, Lincoln, Ibbotson and Berisford bettered the games record of 4:08.8 set by Ken Wood in 1955. Basil Heatley of England won the two mile in 8:52.4, also a games record, with Albert Thomas, the 23-vear-old Australian who holds the best time for the dis- tance, trailing 7th in a field of 9. Richie Sets Mark Philadelphia Richie Ashburn became the owner of another Philadelphia Phillies' club record Saturday night. When the fleet center fielder reached first base on an error in the 5th inning against the Milwaukee Braves it marked his time at bat during 11 seasons. This broke the former club record set by Ed Deiehanty early in the century.

U.S. Thincluds Take Easy Win in Athens Britain Athens A little-known Greek runner outraced Bill Dellinger, new star, in the historic Athens Olympic Stadium Saturday night to break up a solid American monopoly of track and field events. Christos Chiotis ran the 5 grand event in 14 33.6. and had to kick twice to take Dellinger. Otherwise, the evening was practically all American.

The Yanks finished 1st and 2nd in practically every event, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd in several others.

No score, either official or unofficial, was kept since the two national teams entered an uneven number of competitors in a great many events. 55,000 Watch A crowd of more than 55,000 turned out. This was the largest in Athens for a track and field meet the Balkan Games 4 years before World War II. This stadium of solid marble was built for the 1896 revival of the Olympic Games. is a magnificent structure, but a bad place for a track meet.

One end of the field Is nearly five feet higher than the other, making the sprinters run uphill and the distance men up and down. The infield is only 22 yards means the turns on the track are so tight the runners are afraid to go all out on the bends for fear ol falling. Despite all this, the marks Saturday night were fairly good. Besides the loss by Dellinger, the American team got one more jolt, but it was oi a more interteam nature. Davis Beaten Eddie Southern finally defeated Glen Davis in 400 meters race in 47.5.

It is one of the few times the world record-holding Davis has ever lost to Southern, and it is only defeat so far on this tour. Before Saturday night, he won 8 races during one 11-day stretch.

Ten sc Putting Highlights Play Boston UP) A tense 36th hole putting duel between Mrs. Angela Bonailaok and Barbara Mclntire left Curtis Cup in British hands Saturday when the defending champions and their American challengers tied to Mrs.

Bonallaek dropped a curling, 18-mch pressure putt to halve her match after a great comeback on the heels of a tricky 10 foot downhill putt by Miss Mclntire in the key singles test of the international golf classic. The veteran British girls, entering the windup of the two-day competition at Brae Burn i a 2-1 lead were trailing in 4 of the 6 singles tests at the end of 18 holes but had the necessary drive down the stretch to square matters. Four down with 8 holes to play, Mrs. Bonallaek put on a stirring demonstration which symbolized the British afternoon comeback. The 21-year-old wife of the British Walker Cup team member won the 29th when her Lake Park, opponent 3 putted, and the 30th with a 4 wood shot 9 feet from the pm and accompanying putt for a deuce.

Angela won Hie 32nd when Barbara was shy of the green in 3 and the 33rd when Miss Mclntire 3 putted again to pull even. how matters stood in the crucial battle when Miss Mclntire recovered from the rough in front of the green and Mrs. Bonallaek lagged her shot from the edge to within less than two feet, Barbara sank the putt as the gallery roared, then Mrs Bonallaek matched her par 4. Tins was the 2nd tie in the 10 Curtis Cup competitions. The U.S.

has won 6 and Britain two but the visitors, who never have won on American soil, have lost only once in the past 4 bienniel meetings. The other vital match for Britain was Mrs. Frances 2-up triumph over Polly Riley, the U.S. Cup eran from Fort Worth, Texas. 50c Child re I nder FREE Hurth Hauls Pkonc £8888 Quinn Sub.
