Carroll Protests Decision Quote Rules to Holt the Base Runner The Carroll Merchants Med a formal protest on the decisions of the umpires in Wednesday night's game here that resulted in Dick Textor scoring on a ball that allegedly stuck in ' the outfield fence. Central State League president Leo Heisterkamp of Breda called a special meeting of league directors at the Elk's Club in Carroll on Friday at 8 p.m. to consider the protest. Carroll protested on the basis of section 6.09 paragraph (g), of the Official Baseball Rules. Gets Two Bases The quoted paragraph reads as follows: "Any fair ball which, either before or after striking the ground, passes through or under a fence, or through or under a scoreboard, or through any opening in the fence or scoreboard, or through or under shrubbery, or vines on the fence, or which sticks in a fence or scoreboard, in which case the batter and the runners shall be entitled to two bases." The Carroll Merchants protest that the umpires erred when they permitted Textor to advance beyond second base and score a run. League Decision The league directors will be forced to make a decision as to whether the protest is valid and whether it should be allowed. }a the event the protest Is al lowed, the league also must de tide how the* game should be re played. The normal rule of thumb for most leagues in similar situations would tend to call for a re* play from the point of protest Method of Replay Should that happen, the game would resume with Coon Rapids leading by a 1*0 score; with Tex* tor on second base and with nobody out and Mike Blanchard at the plate. That was the situation, with the exception of the runner on 'second, when play finally re* fumed after a lengthy argument during the game on Wednesday Bight. Another method would be to start from scratch. Coon Rapids went on to win the from dale barton's 13 to 4 KEYBOARD one full game in the league stand ings. For Sale MOORMAN'S Conoco Station 6th and Carroll U »•« WM I11 >»* | »4 IIIII i M 11 HI 1 1 III IJMI af >• I RHUBARB: The lengthy argument in Merchants Park on Wednesday night that resulted in a Carroll decision to file a formal protest and the action of league officials in calling an immediate special meeting, has done more to stimulate baseball conversation in this sector than any other single Incident this summer. ' It long has been this observer's contention that baseball needs the stimulus of controversial argument on the street, in the cafes, barber shops, etc., to keep the turnstiles clicking. When fans no longer care to think about or talk about what happened on the playing field, they are* not avid rooters. -Without avid support, the sport will wither and die. Regardless of how the directors decide the issue, the incident has had a beneficial result,. The mere fact that fans are consulting rule books and delivering opinions on what should or should not be done in the given situation is a healthy by-product of a rhubarb that lasted over a quarter of an hour. * * * THE UMPIRES. There is no more harassed man in baseball than the "man in blue." Whatever he does, or doesn't do, will displease somebody. The picture at right shows Urn* pires Hanson of Sac City, left, v and Welch of Coon Rapids, right, as they conferred on situation around which the formal protest arose, la a tough situation regarding interpretation of the rules, % it's best to have the umpires present their view of the situation to. the impartial judgment, of the league directors. That is what will hap* pen here Friday night When the directors consider the Carroll protest. * * * PHOTOGRAPHERS: w « ii m«A »i,.t in Th * Presence of the Times-Her- SS ^«l ?L?5^aS5l W< Photographer on the playing creased their lead over Carroll by Al -i_-%i,. ••_« „„ F ..J „field, during the time out and ar gument during Wednesday night's game here was questioned in some quarters.

SKELLEY • MASON CITY UP - Unless Bob Leahy slips from his sub-par pace it is going to be mighty difficult keeping him' from a. second straight Iowa Amateur golf championship. , ' And no one hat done.that since Johnny Jacobs, the "former Cedar Rapids wonder boy, made it a habit in winning six titles. Leahy, the 29-year-old Denison school master, was two matches ahy of entering the championship final. He and seven others were to be shrunk Friday to the two finalists in another double round of action. Faces Rasley Bob was matched in the fourth round With slim Jim Rasley of Des Moines. Rasley, a former University of Iowa player, who has never been able to put his potential game together for a full run to the chanv E ionshipi lost a 23-hole duel, to eahy in the first round a year ago. Jim got another shot at the champion by eliminating Ken Korneisel of Clinton, 3 and 2 in the third round. Leahy, meanwhile, was busy with Les Johnstone of Mason City, in one of the finest matches in tournament history. Bob won it one-up by playing a 68, 4-under par, only one stroke ahead 'of the husband of Iowa's women's champion, Ann Casey Johnstone. Bob was one-up at 9 and spread his lead to 2 at 10 with a birdie 4. That was the last hole he won in a pressure-packed swing to the finish. Johnstone won 14 with a birdie 2 and it appeared he would square the match at 17 after lagging up from 30 feet for a cinch 4. But Bob dropped a 12-foot putt for a halve. "All I could do was knock the ball to the hole and hope for the best." Bob said. And that "knock" was the match, for they paired 18 in par 5s. Jack Webb of Spirit Lake, the 1949 champion, and George Lee, the big Humboldt veteran whose game fluctuates from real good to mediocre were paired in the second match in the upper bracket quarterfinal. Jack, who rammed home a 30- foot putt from the fringe of the green for a one-up victory over John Liechty of Iowa City In 19 holes in the second round, kept winning with a 5 and 4 decision over Bruce Osmundson of Thompson in the third round. Lee advanced with a one-up victory over Les Frields of Cresco. At the head of the lower bracket was Jack Campbell of Oskaloosa an impertuable golfer who bounced out Rod Bliss of Des KIDS KNOW BEST . . . Bob Feller may be out of organised baseball as an active pitcher, but youngsters haven't forgotten the former major league strikeout king as he conducts clinics.

Well, you ain't seen noth- in' yet, pal, what with a player feud, a couple of no-hit bids and injuries to key players popping up in the breakaway for the final run to the pennant. Taking the happenings one at a time: 1. Cincinnati's Don Hbak vowed "I'll get that Neal before this series is over, either on or off the field," while still riled up after being tagged with an "ambush" right hand from Brooklyn's Charlie Neal in the second of two fights Thursday night at Ebbets Field. The Dodgers won it 5-4 on the second of Duke Snider's pair of two- run homers after Brooklyn's Jim Gilliam and Cincinnati's. Raul Sanches set off a big seventh-inning brawl when Gilliam was low- bridged by a Sanchez pitch. Bids Foiled 2. After Chicago's Bob Rush had no-hlt Philadelphia for seven Innings only to lose 1-0 in 11 innings, rookie Jack Sanford set down the Cubs with 7 1-3 innings of perfect ball for his. 11th victory, 3-1, and a twi-nlght sweep that hoisted Philadelphia into" second place. The t Phils, however, again lost catcher Stan Lopata, this time with a wrenched knee, 3. Milwaukee, slipping from second to third (one percentage point behlndjhe Phillies) despite a 7-2 "victory "at" Pittsburgh, lost shortstop Felix Mantilla and center fielder Billy Bruton in a fielding collision. Edge Shaved 4. Southpaw Johnny Antonelli five-hit St. Louis to win 1-0 as the New York Giants shaved the Cardinals' first-place edge to two games and ended their winning streak at five games. In Ihe "drab'\American League Mickey Mantle's 23rd home run gave the first-place New York Yankees a 3-2, li-inning victory at Kansas City and a 3%-game lead over Chicago's White Sox, beaten 8-8 by Washington. Third- place Boston went 10 innings to beat Detroit-9-7 Baltimore jumped from sixth to fourth with a pair of 5-4 decisions over Cleveland, the first in 11 innings. *Snider,'s clouts twice brought the Brooks from behind. The first cama in a three-run fourth that chased starter Brooks Lawrence. The other was off Tom Acker, who lost It after replacing Sanchez- booted out of the game along with Neal, Gilliam and Hoak Roger TJralg won it in relief, A deadoff single by Chico Fernanda! in the eighth got the Phils going against Rush and they finished with five hits, scoring on singles by Harvey Haddix, Richie Ashburn and' Gran Hamner in the payoff nth. Haddix won his eighth. Sanford, now the NL's top win* ner with an 11*2 record, finished with a four-hitter after Dale Long's broken bat single in the nightcap eighth.

Bob Trowbridge gained his first complete game. Rookie Downs Cafrds A sixth-inning home run by rookie Valmy Thomas won the Giants, breaking/up a double two- hit shutout duel between Antonelli, now 8-7, and bonus whiz Lindy McDaniel (8-5). Yogi Berra's seventh-Inning homer gave the Yankees a 1-all tie and Harry Simpson, late of the A's, singled home the run that made it 2-2 in the ninth to set up Mantle's swat. Two walks and an error loaded the bases and made Rocky Bridges' single good for two ninth- inning runs off reliever Paul LaPalme for Washington's victory. Boston made it on Gene Stephens' single and Jim Piersall's sacrifice fly after a walk and two errors by losing Tiger reliever Lou Sleater. The Orioles* combined singles by Bob Nieman, Gus 1 Triandos and Jim Busby with a wild pitch by loser Cal McLish for their two runs in the first-game 11th inning. Starter Ray Narleski and McLish had given the Birds only two hits for 10 frames—-Nieman's two-run homer and an RBI single by Ray Moore, who was relieved by winner Ken Lehman in the seventh.. Baltimore tagged just three hits —one Al Pilarcik's homer — off Bob Lemon while scoring five runs in the first three innings of the nightcap, getUng help from two walks, two hit batsmen and a double steal that scored a run.

"I've always had. trouble with them for some reason," he said. "Seems funny, a left-hander' saying that. Left-handers are supposed to have it made against that club. But they've got a lot of right-hander hitters now." Anty, only 9-12 lifetime against St. Louis, dueled on even term's with Lindy McDaniel through five innings._Each had, a two-hit shutout when rookie Valmy Thomas slapped his third home run of the season against the upper deck in left field in the sixth inning.
