E. SKELLEY MASON CITY i*i — Pressure mounted all along the line Thursday as two rugged 18-hole matches confronted 32 eager golfers in the Iowa Amateur Tournament. By early evening only eight will be left in the battle for the championship held by Bob Leahy of Denison. Leahy quite naturally hoped to be one of the eight. The 29-year- old school master just might run into trouble. He was paired in the second round with Jack Carlson of Mason City, who knocked out Gary Lockie of Davenport, in the first round, 4 and 3. Should Bob escape from Carlson he would be up against either Dick Anderson of Cedar Rapids, or Les Johnstone of Mason City, and both are extremely dangerous. Leahy 3 Over Par Leahy cruising along at a 3-over- Minors See New Leagues By JOE REICHLER ST. LOUIS lff>—Top minor league officials, distressed by rumored major league franchise shifts to their territories, predicted today a nationwide realignment of the manors if the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants move to the Pacific Coast. A higher echelon official said he would not be surprised if at lpast' one, higher classification circuit and a number of other baseball cities in the lower • minors. are forced to suspend operations if the Dodgers and Giants leave New York. "What's the use of kidding." said Edward Doherty, president of the American Association. "I jus}; hate to think what would happen to our league should the Giants move to Minneapolis. The same thing goes for the Pacific Coast League should the Giants move to San Francisco and the Dodgers to Los Angeles." / Exploratory Meeting Doherty, along with seven other minor league presidents, and George M. Trautman, president of the national association, had just come out of an exploratory meeting with Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick on the subjects of realignment, expansion . and franchise transfers. " The group, to a man, admitted the minor league 'situation was never before in more dire straits, Declaring they had no knowledge of the Dodgers' and Giants' intentions, the officials confessed they don't know 1 - where they're going from here. "Sitting back and waiting for the axe to fall is not a comfortable thought," said Leslie M. O'Connor, president of the Pacific Coast League. "If we had any Idea what the Dodgers and Giants- intended to do," complained Frank Shaughnessy, head of the international League, "then perhaps we'd' know what to do. But they apparently are fraid to trust us, FEWER HOME RUNS \ NEW YORK UP — What's happened to the rabbit ball? Major league home runs are down almost five per cent from the 1956 totals. Through Wednesday night's game, 612 home runs were, hit in the National League and 532 in the American for an aggregate of 1.144. In as many games a year ago, 1,198 circuit blows were produced -651 in the National and 54 in the American. The Cincinnati Redlegs, who tied the major league record last season with, 221 homers, trip both loojw with IOO . This is 18 behind their 1956 pace. Kansas Ctty*eao> the American League with 91, rep- restotinft an Increase of 40 per cent over 'last year.' • •.• • > >;i par rate, got a 2-up victory over Clark Toussaint of Cedar Rapids in Ihe first round. Rod Bliss of Des Moines, seeking .his third amateur title, had young Jack Bunker of Cherokee, as his second foe. Bliss was one- under-par in a 4 and 3 decision over Bob Davis of Cedar Rapids. Bunker earned his shot at the tournament medalist by defeating Larry Collins of Cedar Falls, 3 and 2. Webb an<| Liechty Duel The most exciting second round match could be the duel between Jack Webb of Spirit Lake, the 1949 champ, and Jack Liechty. of Iowa City. They have something in common—both lost to Leahy in the 1956 tournament. Jack went down 3 and 2 in the third round and young Liechty carried Leahy to the 18th green before losing one-down in the semi finals. Webb was a 2-up winner over John Marschall of Hampton,. and Liechty stopped'Dick LeightOn of Cedar Rapids, 3 and 1 Wednesday. Herb Klontz of Cedar Rapids, who won the championship here in 1953, was paired in the second round with,Robert Martin of Waukon. Herb scrambled to a one-up victory over Bernie Irwin of Des Moines and Martin eliminated i Hugh Cummings of Wever 2 and | 1 ili the fiftt round. *** Trouble with Moods Klontz had trouble with his woods against Irwin. "It's some little thing I hope I can work out," said the 22-year-old .University of Iowa dental student. Fred Gordon of Belmond, one of the four former champions in the first round, lost to Keith Campbell of Des Moines, 3 and 1. • Jim Rasley of Des Moines, 3 under par in 1 a 6 and 5 triumph over William Henke of Charles City, faced 19-year-old Duane Massey of Dubuque in the second round. Slim Jim finished out Wednesday for a 4 under 68. Massey, who qualified with a one-under par 7l,eliminat- ed Marv Wolter of Mason City, 3 and 2. McCardell Advances Bud McCardell of Newton, loser to Leahy in the 1956 final, was a 4 and 2 victor over Frank Walker of Marshalltown. Bud played Lar-, ry Ramsey of Des Moines,-in the second round. Larry defeated .Ronnie-Knight of Marshalltown one up in'his first start.- Tom Garside of Davenport, number one player on the Notre Dame team, advanced with a one up decision in 19 holes over a fellow townsman O.

Ibach Gets 19th As Merchants Falter I n Check by Pur key, 5-2 By ED WILKS The Associated Press Young Bob Purkey, Pittsburgh's chubby-faced right-hander, looks as though he may be following in the.footsteps of teammate Bob Friend, the Pirate ace who gave the pennant contenders all sorts of troubles two years ago while leading the National League in earned run averages. Friend, a bit battered these days, was the guy who almost owned Brooklyn's champs in '55. He was 14-9 that season for the last-place Bucs, with a 9-5 mark against the first division, while finishing with a 2.84 ERA. At the moment, Purkey is 9-7 and leads the league with a 2.70 ERA, gaining his second victory over Milwaukee 5r2 Wednesday night. It was the only game scheduled in either league. Six-Hitter •» Purkey stopped the Braves with a six-hitter, striking out seven and walking two. A single by Red Schoendienst came ahead of Ed Mathews' 18th home run in the first inning, but Purkey then kept the Braves in check while the Pirates battled back against Bob Buhl. Bob Skinner hit a two-run homer and Gene Baker bagged it with a three-run single. Purkey, a Pittsburgh kid who spent most of last season in the minors after wrenching a knee in spring training, has picked up seven of his 1*957 victories against the NL's five-team first division. He's beaten Brooklyn three times, Cincinnati twice. Only St. Louis has given him trouble, beating him twice in two decisions. The Pirates, handed Buhl his fifth defeat in 14 decision when a walk, Dick Groat's single and an error by Frank Torre loaded the bases with two out in the sixth. With the runners on the move, Baker then lined a 3-2 pitch through short to junk a 2-2 tie. Buhl now has lost three in a row, after winning five straight. The Cardinals, who have been their best on the road (26-11) and especially in the east (17-6), opened a 13-game swing through the east today at New York against the sixth place Giants. Lindy McDaniel, 8-4 for the season and.2-0 against the Giants, was the Card probable against either Johnny Antonelli (7-7) or Ruben Gomez (10-7). Third place Philadelphia, 3V4 games back and only three percentage points ahead of Cincinnati, resumes play after the All-Star game break - at home to the Chicago Cubs in a twi-nighter. It's Harvey Haddix (7-5) and Curt Simmons (8-4), the All-Star loser, against Bob Rush (1-7) and Don Elston (2-0). Cincinnati is at Brooklyn with Brooks Lawrence (9-5) going against young Danny McDevitt (3-1) for the fifth-place Brooks. In the American, first place New York takes its 2% -game lead to Kansas City, winless against the Yankees in 11 meetings this year. Former Yank Ralph Terry (3-3) is the A's probable against Bob Turley (4-2) tonight. Chicago's second place White Sox send Bob Keegan _ (4-3) against the Washington Senators and Pete Ramos (6-6). Fourth place Cleveland has a twi-night pair with Baltimore and it's Ray Narlesld (5-1) and Bob Lemon (5-7) for the Indians against Ray Moore (5-5) and Billy Q!Dell (1-2). . Coon Rapids took a strangle-hold on first place in the Central State League with a vital 3£ decision over CarroD here Wednesday night. Extra-base blows by pesky Dick Textor and Dale Tryon plus a run- scoring single by Dale McCarty gave Jerry Ibach all the margin he needed to record his, 19th consecutive pitching victory since last July. While the Carroll Merchants were falling . one" and one-half games Off the pace, Manning's Jim Wingrove shut out Audubon, 8-0, to tighten up the standings in the. middle bracket. Audubon and Churdan are tied for third place and are four games out while Manning remained five games out/ Before the largest -home crowd of the season, the Carroll * Merchants fought down to the final out in a losing 'cause here Wednesday. Score Early Dick Textor blasted a Don Burgess pitch into left field for a double with one away in the first frame. He advanced to third as Mike Blanchard grounded to short. Tryon drew a pass and McCarty lined a single into right field to score Textor. Ron Mau ended the inning by tapping back to the pitcher. Carroll threatened to got the run back in the bottom of the first when both Bob Simpson and Cletus Heinrich were safe on errors. However, Simpson was caught off second on a snap throw Dy catcher Mau. Then Ray Blankenship walked to put runners on first and second. With one away, Sammy Long struck out. Then Bill Burgess was rejired on a grounder to-second. Proceedings Enlivened An unusual play in the top of the third enlivened the proceedings with a quarter-hour interruption while the umpires consulted the rule book and both teams launched vigorous protests. Textor drove a ball into left field and it got past Heinrich and rolled to the fence whereupon the ball adhered itself or otherwise got stuck in the fence. Before the ball could be retrieved, the runner had rounded second and sped unmolested to the plate. That's when the big argument got underway. It was finally ruled a hit and error on the basis that the error had deflected the ball into the fence, in which case it was still '4Jive" and wherefore the runner <-.was entitled to advance^ Tryon Erased Doubts As it turned out, it didn't make the slightest bit of difference one way. or the other because Textor would have scored in any event. After Blanchard struck out, Tryon —the third batter in the inning- blasted a home run over the left field fence. That was the extent of Coon Rapids scoring for the evening. They threatened thereafter but couldn't dent the plate.
