July 4th Tradition Dictates By DON WEISS 1 The Associated Eress ItTI be a Yankee-Redleg World Series — and look out for flying glass—if baseball's Independence Day tradition holds up in '57. Tradition says the teams leading the pennant races on July 4 meet in the Series about six times out of 10. The Yanks, who make If a habit, passed the July 4 milestone three games in front of the Chicago White Sox, a half game less than their AL lead a year ago When they won by nine. It's the 22nd time the Yankees have been the July 4 leader in the modern era and only four times have they been dislodged in the second half of play. Shaky Redleg Lead • Cincinnati's lead is shaky at best. The Redlegs are half a game and four percentage points up on St. Louis, half a game and six points up on Milwaukee, 2% in front of Brooklyn and 3 up on Philadelphia. The margin between first and fifth in tlje NL was clipped by 1% games in Thursday's big holiday program as Milwaukee bat­ tered the Redlegs 10-7 in a single game and the other four contenders moved up. St. Louis edged Chicago 4-3 after the Cubs' two-run rally in the ninth had won the opener 7-6. Brooklyn won its second game 8-2 from Pittsburgh after losing the first 5-1. The Phillies showed a 1V4 gain, sweeping New York 2-1 and 6-2. White Sox Split In the AL, three double-headers were split. The Yanks won 4-1 after losing to Boston 3-2 on Mickey Vernon's two-out, two-run pinch homer in the ninth. Chicago Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Friday, July 5, 1957 " thrashed Kansas City 8-3 after the A's rallied for five in the ninth for a 5-4 first-game victory. Cleveland stopped Detroit 3-1 on Early Wynn's three-hitter, then lost 4-3. Baltimore won a single game, 3-2 over Washington in 11 innings. Singles by Bill Brutoh and Red Schoendienst drove in the tying and winning runs in a four-run Milwaukee eighth, costing Redleg reliever Bud Freeman • his first loss. Hank Aaron helped Gene Conley win with his 26th homer, two doubles and three RBIs; George Crowe drove inlix for Cincinnati with five hits, including his 17th and 18th homers. Pinch Hits ICip Cards Chicago edged the Cards on ninth-inning pinch hits* by Bob Speake and Jim Bolger in the opener but Sam .Jones saved the nightcap for St. Louis, pitching a six-hither and driving in the deciding run. A double and homer raised Stan Musial's career extra- base total to 1,133, fourth on the all-time list.. Charlie Neal and Duke Snider in combined for five RBI behind Don Newcombe for the Dodgers after the Pirates' Bob Friend had seven-hit the Brooklyns in the first game. Bob Purkey lost to Newcombe. Left-handers H a r v ey Haddix, winning his seventh, and Curt Simmons, now 8-4, did the job for the Phils although Simmons needed help from Dick Farrell in the ninth after a two-hit show for eight innings. Rip Repulski's 11th homer decided it for Haddix over Ruben Gomez and Joe Lonnett hit his first major league homer in the nightcap. Yank Streak End* Vernon's pelmatic homer off Yankee tjblleyer -Bob Grim follow^" Frank Malzone's single and, giving Da've Sisler his fifth straight over New York in two years, ended the Yanks' win streak at seven., Don Larsen's five-hitter controlled the second game. / ^ Chicago blasted Ned Oarver and four successors fof IS hits in a romp for Bob Keegan in the nightcap with the A's, who got the winning run in the surprise first-game finish on Joe *DeMaestri's dash home from first on a slowly handled single by Gus Zernial. Rocky eolavito 's. three-run hon> er beat Detroit, for Wynn 's nth but singles by Frank Boiling and Charlie Maxwell and Al Kaline 's double produced two eighth-inning runs that won the second game for Detroit. Ken Lehman won over Truman Clevenger, both in relief, in the. Baltimore-Washington single. Jim Busby's RBI doubte in the ninth tied the score at 2-2 and Busby scored the winner for the Orioles on Jim Brideweser's single in the nth.

S Boating Docks! Although the area is still in its Infancy, five boating docks have already been built. Boats, motors, bait, and refreshments are available at lakeside. Nearly ready for use is a beach where folks can absorb Iowa's sun and swim as well. Because of the heavy rains so far this year, the water level of the lake is at its highest mark since May of 1955, the date the lake was opened for fishing. Jasper County, although somewhat lacking in historical landmarks, provides a scenic drive through lush farm land. The country side provides, unique patterns of farming. Jasper County boasts of more acres of strip cropping than any other "county* in Iowa. Conservation practices at their best are readily discerned by the expert eye and for this reason it was selected as the site for the National Field Days and Plowing Matches- of 1S56 which attracted both presidential candidates and 200,000 people.

Manning Is 10-2 Victim On 8-Hitter A route-going pitching performance by Rollie Niehaus on a 10-2 win over Manning here Wednesday night strengthened Carroll's bid to overhaul Coon Rapids in the Central State League pennant chase. The victory left the Merchants just half a game behind the league leaders and shoved Manning to within half a game of cellar-dwelling Breda. The odds are with the front runners in Sunday's upcoming games as Carroll goes to Breda while Coon Rapids will be host to Manning. Third place Audubon will entertain fourth place Churdan. 7 Scoreless Frames Niehaus, a strong-armed hurler from Creighton University, pitched seven scoreless innings against Manning before the visitors broke through to score a pair of runs in the eighth. The former Kuemper star gave up only eight hits, struck out seven and walked four in posting his first win of the season against 'no losses. "Rollie's performance means we've got another starter," said Manager Don Burgess. Beck on Sunday The Carroll pilot then named Frank Beck, who has a victory to his credit, as the starting pitcher at Breda on Sunday night. With league-leading Coon Rapids due in Carroll next Wednesday night, the Merchant staff should be ready for the encounter. Burgess is well rested and Niehaus will have had a full week's rest. In the Manning game, Carroll hung the loss on Roger Ohde with four runs in the first five innings. The Merchants then took picks on relief hurler Wingrove with three- run clusters in the seventh and eighth innings. Carroll scored in the second without benefit, of a hit; when a walk- and a pair of errors let Rich Bengfort scoot home with a run. 3rd Homer for Long Sammy Long bombed his third homer of the year in the, third with Ray Blankenship aboard to pad the margin. In the fifth, a double by Cletus Heinrichs and a single by Bengfort tallied another marker. In the seventh, a single by Heinrichs, double by Blankenship, single by Long and subsequent error in center and a single by Bengfort accounted for three Car roll runs. Another heartening aspect of the game was the emergence of a strong replacement player in Jim Short, Kuemper High School star. Jim Short Delivers Short came to the plate in the eighth with one run home, base runners at second and third and two away. He blasted a smash into right center field to plate Simpson and Heinrichs with the final Carroll runs; In addition to his prowess at the plate, Short performed flawlessly in the field as he took over at first base and snared a shallow foul pop off the bat of Vernon Wagner for the second out in the top of the ninth. 5-Hit Splurge Manning's runs came in the eighth on a five-hit splurge. Wingrove led off with a single. That was. followed by Rostermundt's base knock.

Less Dread Of Williams By Pitchers By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK m - Ted Williams, despite his lofty batting average, is finally beginning to show his years. The Boston Red Sox slugger, generally regarded as baseball's best hitter during the past two decades, is not as feared by opposing pitchers as he used to be. "Something tells me I shouldn't say this," a New York Yankee pitcher remarked "because it would be just like the big son-of- a-gun to make me eat my words before the day is over. But if you ask me I think Ted has lost something. Lost Snap in Swing "Sure he's still a great hitter, but he doesn't seem to have that old snap in his swing any more. At least he hasn't shown me that old buggy-whip swing of his. I think he knows it too. He doesn't appear to be as confident at the plate as he used to be. He takes more good pitches now and he even swings at some bad ones too. He doesn't seem to be too sure of himself. "Maybe I'm wrong about him but I feel more confident when I'm pitching against him now than ever before. At least I don't get a nervous feeling any more when he strides up to the plate. There was a time when I'd be happy to settle for a single or double. Now I feel I've got a 50-50 chanca against him." . Curbed by Shantz Williams, 38, did not distinguish himself at the plate as the Yankees and Red Sox divided their holiday double-header. He drew a walk in the first game, but failed to hit the ball out of the infield in his three other turns at bat against Bobby Shantz. Boston won 3-2. Obviously tired, Ted was given a rest in the second game but he turned up as a pinch hitter in the fifth against Don Larsen and went out on a high pop foul. The Yankees won 4-1.' Williams told friends during spring training that: "I'll be satisfied if I can hit .330, with about 30 home runs and 100 runs batted in this year. If I can't do that I'll know it's time to quit," Ted currently is hitting .349, one point above his lifetime mark, with 20 home runs and 44 runs- batted-in. At this rate he should easily realize two of his goals and approach the other. Bill Hartack has ridden in two Kentucky Derbys. He won the 1957 running with Iron Liege and was second in 1956 with Fabius. Dont Take It for Granted! moss • WRITTEN BY FKANO'S SCOTT KSV fN /8/4, tTWASNT- DESIGNATED TV& US. .
