Audubon Nips Carroll 6-5; Churdan Belts Girls Play Against Merchants Teams Will Clash Here On Tuesday The World Champion women's baseball team will play the Carroll Merchants here next Tuesday night, Robert H. Matt, president of the Carroll Atluetic Association said. A 15-minute pre-game warm-up show by the All American girls will get things underway at 8 p.m. and the game with the Merchants will start at 8:15 p.m., Matt announced. Exchange Batteries The only departure from a regular game is that the girls exchange batteries with their foes. That means one of the Carroll hurlers and catcher Bob Rothmeyer will oppose their mates while an all-girl battery will toil for the Merchants. This is the third year on the road for a girl's team that specialized in playing against men teams. In 1955 and 1956 they played a total of 136 games and won 71 of the contests. Cover Most of Nation The team was organized in 1955 by Bill Allington, a former pro player. To date they have virtually covered the nation and have made appearances in Canada. As Katie Horstman, an all- around star, says, "The better the team we play against, the better we play." On a 29-state tour this summer, the All American girls have played in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania. New Jersey, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Minnesota and Nebraska. Former League Players Players include Dottie.

Dottie Schroeder Berger, B«tty Weaver, Ruth Richard, Jean Smith and Margaret Holland from the former All American Girls Baseball League. This season the team had added newcomers Paula Kleihrichet, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Eulah Miller of Meridian, Mississippi. "We feel we have an attraction here that will give our fans a real treat," Manager Don Burgess of the Carroll Merchants said Thursday as he pondered the problem of loaning a battery to the girls in Merchants Park next Tuesday night. Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee Braves had the longest major league hitting streak in 1956, batting safely in 25 straight games. Loop Standings W L Pet.

End Newks Whammy He got them back into first place Wednesday night, breaking the Cards' four-game losing streak with a 7-3 victory over, fourth- place Brooklyn that ended the Dodgers' spurt at five games and finally junked Don Newcombe's six-year whammy. St. Louis regained the lead by one percentage point as Milwaukee dropped Philadelphia out of first with a 10-3 decision that lifted the Braves to second with a .570 percentage. The Cards are .571. Cincinnati remained fifth, two games back, on a 5-4 victory over New York Giants with Redleg Frank Robinson shrugging off Tuesday's beaning to return to the lineup. Chicago scored twice in the seventh to beat Pittsburgh 4-3. Yanks Keep Edge In the American League, the New York Yankees stayed four games ahead with a 5-1 victory at Detroit after Chicago's second place White Sox had defeated Baltimore 3-1. Botton lost to Kansas City 4-3 in 12 Innings, but Ted •Williams took the league batting lead from Yankee Mickey Mantle. Washington rapped Cleveland off a five-game winning streak 11-6. Jones, tagged "Toothpick Sam" because he's never without one on the mound, gave up 10 hits but struck out 12 and never was in much trouble. Newk, who had won 12 in a row from the Cards since Aug. 23, 1951 finally got his lumps in a four- run fourth sparked by Wally Moon's two-run homer. Only One Walk Jones, whose league-leading strikeout totals for the past two years svere dulled by the fact he also led in bases on balls, walked only one Wednesday night. The Braves made it six out of nine with a five-run seventh to chill the Phils, who protested the game in losing their second in a row since taking the league lead Monday. The bin beef came on a first-inning Milwaukee doubleplay, leading to a quick shower for starter Robin Roberts when he menaced Umpire Jocko Conlan during the row. Jack Meyer lost it while Lew Burdette won his eighth with Don McMahon's help in a three-run Philadelphia sixth. Crowe Paces Reds George Crowe, replacing Ted Kluszewski again, drove in four runs with his 19th and 20th homers for the Redlegs an Brooks Lawrence won his 10th with relief help. Robinson, who suffered a concussion from the beaning, had a single in four trips. The Yankees handed All-Star game winner Jim Bunning an 11-3 record with his first defeat since June 21 with their fifth in a row over the Tigers Bob Turley won his fifth with a six-strikeout six' hitter that included Charlie Maxwell's 19th homer Yogi Berra and Jerry Coleman homered for the Yanks. Bob Keegan won his fifth in a row for the White Sox and singled home the clincher in the fourth against Bill Wight, who walked seven. Keegan, now 6-3, needed Bill Fischer's relief in the ninth. Rocco Pirro, Syracuse University line coach, formerly was on the coaching staff with the Baltimore Colts and the Montreal Alouettes.

There must be a reason why he likes to look ahead to the fall months and it isn't difficult to ascertain. The mere mention of football brings a gleam to Hanson's eye. Returning letterrhen for the Indians include such standout bBcks as Chuck Jons, Dub Lytle and Mike Sullens. But when Hanson talks about the line, he really brightens up. "Let's see now, on defense, I've got a 275-pound anchor man jn the center of the line by the name of Larry Bowman. When Mike Welch got hurt last year Bowman got a lot of good experience," the Sac City mentor explained. "That Welch is pretty fair size, too. He weighs about 225 pounds. Then we've got another pretty fair sized boy in Charles Hiner, a tackle, and Jim Mason, at guard, is generally rated one. of the better guards in the conference," the coach added. Then like the vast majority of football coaches, Hanson shifted to the crying-towel. "If we had a left end, we might have a fair team. We just haven't got a left end and our right end position looks weak. Then another thing is that we've got no depth. II we get one injury we'll be hurting and if we get* more, than that there's no telling what to expect," the erstwhile genial coach emphasized as the worry-waves set in and he trudged away to the baseball diamond to get his mind off gridiron problems.

BUT—State funds must pay 100% of the cost of all future maintenance. THEREFORE—It is of utmost importance that these great roads be paved to carry heavy traffic at minimum expense for maintenance. SO bONCRETE IS A MUST—Many concrete pavements have given service for 30 to 50 years without resurfacing or other major maintenance. The average life of concrete pavements has been many years longer than the life of flexible pavements. SAVE XIVES TOO—Money isn't the only thing you save when you* pave with concrete. You save lives. You prevent accidents. Every driver knows the contrast between gritty, skid-resistant concrete and the payements that must be labeled "slippery when wet."

Manning Ballroom Sot, July 20 Eddie Skeets •nd Hit Swiss Boys ..!!,; AdmlMlen 70c : Uprising in 9th Tallies Six Markers MANNING — A six run-Uprising in the ninth inning padded a slim lead and gave Churdan a ,12-5 victory over the Blue Sox here Wednesday night.

Ed Sabus walked and Don Wallace singled at the start of the final frame. Gary Gabrielsen grounded out and Chuck Wills walked to load the bases. Solid Blows Bob Vogel doubled to plate a pair and Don Peters singled two more runs across the plate. Paul Trost was safe on a f I e 1 d e r's choice. Then Jack Pierrick tripled Trost home and scored himself when the relay from the outfield was dropped in the infield. Manning picked up a pair of runs in the second when Mox Irlmeier doubled and scored when Leo Schoeppner's grounder was misplayed. Grundmeier walked and Vernon Wagner was safe on an error that scored Schoeppner. Ramsey Doubled In the fourth, Grundmeier was safe on an error. After Horbach walked, Rostermundt lived on a fielder's choice. Then Dennis Ramsey doubled two runs home. Manning's final tally was- scored in the seventh when Ed Lucas singled, Irlmeier walked and Schoeppner singled. Churdan scored two in the first on an error, hit, sacrifice and a double by Wills. In the second, the Indies rallied again. Pierrick singled and went to third on an error. He scored on a wild pitch. Churdan picked up two in the fourth on two walks and a hit.

" ' 12-5 Scott Tames Carroll Carroll Scott, the smooth Audubon lefty,- handcuffed the Carroll Merchants for six innings and then survived a pair- of shaky innings to pin a 6-5 defeat on the locals here Wednesday night. Scott had a no-hitter going for six innings before Bill Burgess broke the'spell with a mate aboard in the seventh when the veteran Carroll first-sacker lined a solid smash into left field. Meantime, Audubon had taken picks on the offerings of Rollie Niehaus for three runs and another pair off Frank Beck. Their final and eventual winning run was wild-pitched acrosr the plate by Sammy Long in the eighth. One Game Back The defeat left the Merchants a full game back of idle Coon Rapids and gave Audubon undisputed possession of fourth — close on the heels of third-place Churdan. Coon Rapids will have a \jhance to pick up an additional half-game on Carroll if the league leaders defeat Breda in a game at Breda Thursday night. Six HltlesR Innings The Merchants battled six fruitless innings as they endeavored to solve the puzzling slants of the Au^ dubon portsider before they broke through with a cluster of unearned runs in the seventh. Sammy Long started ' the rally when he was safe on an error. Bill Burgess advanced Long to second with the first hit. Rich Bengfort became a strikeout victim, but 1 Ronnie Hested walked to .load thp bases. The unnerved Scott uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Long to scamper home with the first Carroll run. Bob Rothmeyer walked, and the bases were loaded again. Mai Brinker batted for Beck and grounded into a fielder's choice as Bill Burgess was erased. Simpson Plates Pair Bob Simpson unloaded a double to score Hested and Rothmeyer. Cletus Heinrich was retired on a sharp grounder to short as Carroll left the tie stranded at second. The Merchants added a pair in the eighth. After Ray Blankenship was out on strikes, Long got an infield single to deep short. Bill Burg*ess was safe when the second baseman dropped a fly ball in shallow right centerfield. Rich Bengfort moved both runners along with a ground ottt. Hested Gets 2 RBI's Ronnie Hested smacked a liner into centerfield to plate both Long and Bill Burgess: Bob Rothmeyer then popped to the. second baseman for the third ouV Rollie Niehaus benefited from three double plays as he managed to extricate himself from jams until the sixth inning. The first one was bf_a routine nature when Paul Eagen hit bnck to the mound with Rich Lewer on first via a base hit. That went from Nfehaus to Blankenship to Bill Burgess. .In the second inning, Charles Schwab and Carroll Scott walked. Cloy Kneeskern singled to load the bases with one away. Ray Johnson lined a hard smash back to .Niehaus. The Carroll pitcher speared the drive and threw to third in time to trap Schwab for the twin-killing. , Triple Piny Foiled | In the fifth inning, Carroll almost had a triple play. Owen Bateson led off with a walk. Roger Law singled to put runners on first and second. Lewer shot a smoking liner to Bengfort at short for, the first out and Bengfort's flip to • Blankenship caught Bate- ] son off the bag for two. Blanken ship's throw to first might have nailed Law sliding back into the' bag had not Lewer sped down the base line and crashed into Bill Burgess to break up the attempted triple play. Audubon finally broke through the defenses in the sixth. Scott was safe on an error. Clark singled and Kneeskern duplicated to plate Scott. Johnson was safe on a fielder's choice as Clark was erased. Bateson singled and Kneeskern rode home on Law's ground out, Lewer walked and Beck replaced Niehaus. Johnson scored on a wild pitch. Kneeskern Tripled In the seventh with one away, Scott singled. Clark filed out but Kneeskern tripled Scott home. Johnson then singled Kneeskern home. In the eighth. Long replaced Beck on the mound for Carroll. He walked Bateson and sent him to second with a wild throw on an attempted pick-off at first. Law shot a bounder past Simpson at third and Bateson moved up. He scored on a wild pitch. In the two innings Long was on the mound, five of the six outs were recorded as strike outs. • Box Scores AUDUBON AB R H PO A Jorgensen, ct ..... 2 0 0 1 0 Law, c Lewer, c, ct Eagen, 2b 3 0 2 3 0 0 16 0 0 4 Schwab, lb 1 .1 4 0 19 0 Scott, p Clark, If Kneeskern, rf Johnson, ss Bateson. 3b TOTALS CARROLL Simpson, 3b Heinrich, if, cf ...
