Carroll Coon Rapids and Churdan Post League Victories Fired Gordon Leads Field Of Amateurs SPENCER OB — Fred Gordon, Belmond florist, carried a nine- stroke edge on par and (our strokes over his closest challengers in the final 36 holes of the Northwest Amateur golf tournament Monday. Gordon put together his 135 on rounds of 67 and 68 Thursday and Friday and before the heavy traffic of 233 golfers had its effect on the greens. Battling from four strokes back were state amateur champion Bob Leahy of Denison and Luti Fon- tanun of Des Moines. The defending champion, Sarg Fontanini of Des Moines, took a 143 into Monday's final round. Scores of 148 or lower were needed to get into the champion ship flight. One of the hardest hffr victims of the bumpy greens and wind was Jack Bunker of Cherokee who needed. 12 . more strokes Sunday than he took Saturday in firing a 66, : He had a 144. Other contenders are Jim English, Denver, Colo., formerly of Red Oak, 140; Herb Klonti, Cedar Rapids, and Jack Donohue, Des Moines, 141; Dave Everds, Ames, and,George Lee, Humboldt, 142. FATHER-DAUGHTER TITLE MOUNT PLEASANT lift-Harold arid Jane Hawkins of Mount Pleas ant Monday held Iowa's first Fa ther and Daughter golf title. They shot two 42s for an 84 to tal Sunday and finished two strokes in front of Charles and Susan Meerdink of Muscatine and Arnold and Sharon Fladoos of Du- buqueue. Ohio State players made The Associated Press All-America foot ball team the last three years. They were, Hopalong Cassidy in 1954 and 1955 and James Parker in-1956. J vecf to Half Game as Split Pair; Braves Win By JACK HAND The Associated Press Enos Slaughter, 41, the" hustling Country Boy" who is the oldest active player in the American League, is showing the younger New York Yankees how the game is played. Five hits in Sunday 's double victory over Cleveland boosted Slaughter's lifetime total to 2,301 in a career dating back to 1938 when he broke into the majors with the St. Louis Cardinals. Slaughter's single tied the score and his three-run homer off Johnny Gray sewed up the 5-2 first game. After Jerry Lumpe's scratch pinch single had tied the score in the ninth inning of the second game, Enos came through with a looping single to center, that gave the Yanks their eighth straight 6-5. Stretched Lead The sweep stretched the Yankee lead to 6V4 games over Chicago which battered Boston pitching for 19 hits and an 11-6 decision In a single game. Cleveland dropped into a fifth-place tie with Baltimore 19 games off the pace. The Orioles handed Kansas Qjty its seventh straight defeat 5-0 on Billy Loes' five-hitter and Washington thumped Detroit 8-4 as the two clubs set a Griffith Stadium record with seven horn runs. While Slaughter was strutting his stuff at Yankee Stadium, his old St. Louis mates saw their National League lead reduced to a half game. After bowing to the brilliant relief pitching of the Phillies' Harvey Haddix in the 12- inning opener 5-4, the Cards won the second game 4-1 on Lindy McDaniel's steady nine-hitter. Gained Half Game Milwaukee moved within a half game of St. Louis by holding off a late Brooklyn spurt for a 9-7 victory with the, help of : homers by Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Monday, Aug. 5, 1957 Eddie Mathews, Del Rice, Johnny Logan and Henry Aaron.. Cincinnati split a pair with New York, losing the first in 14 innings 7-6 when Willie Mays hit two homers and a triple. The Redlegs pulled out th second game 3-2 on a six-hitter by rookie Vicente Amor. Chicago climbed out of the cellar by beating Pittsburgh,twice 6-0 behind Moe Drabowsky and 3-2 on Jack LittreU's pinch double in the llth. spoiling Danny Murtaugh's debut as Pirate manager. Slaughter drove in four' runs off Gray while Whitey Ford rolled to his seventh win on a six-hitter. After Tommy Byrne blew a 4-1 lead in the second game, it was Slaughter's hit that finally hung a 10th defeat on relief" man Bob Lemon. Trails Ted Although Mickey. Mantle had five hits in the doubleheader, sending his* average to .368, he still was far behind Boston's Ted Williams who moved up to .389 with three singles in four trips against Dick Donovan of Chicago. Donovan went all, the way for the fourth straight time to win his 12th despite 14 Boston Hits.. Loes' shutout was his fifth, victory over Kansas City among his 11 wins. He struck out eight and didn't walk a man. Roy Sievers failed in his attempt to break the . American League record that he tied Saturday by hitting.homers in six consecutive games. However, Pete Ramos, Milt Boiling, Rocky Bridges and Eddie Yost of the Senators and Bill Tuttle, Ray Boone and Al Kaline of the Tigers homered. Streak Snapped In the National, the Cards' eight-game winning streak was snapped by Haddix when Larry Jackson walked in the winning run in the 12th. McDaniel helped his own cause with a freak double that dropped near home plate and led to the first Card run when Al Dark tripled. The bonus pitcher nursed a 2-1 lead until the eighth when two singles and Granny Hamner's two-base error let St. Louis pick up two more off Curt Simmons who had just replaced Warren Hacker,, Warren Spahn. who seldom works against Brooklyn, faced the Dodgers for the first time since June 5, 1956 to put down a late rally. • ; id a ire Super Trade-in ial Sped $80 for Your Old Refrigerator on This Beautiful Sheer-Look Refrigerator-Freezer with Dial Defrost Quikube lee Treye Aluminum Shelve* Hfl3*raenr Capacity HURRY m AND SAVII CARROLL REFRIGERATION SERVICE We»» en the Hlway Next to Charley's Place Loop Standings Coon Rapids Caroll Churdan Audubon Manning' Breda W L Pet.

Spahn Curbs Late Threat By CHUCK CAPALDO MILWAUKEE <AV - Warren Spahn, ageless Milwaukee Braves' left-hander, rhade one of his infrequent appearances against Brooklyn yesterday and, brief though it was, it only served to whet his appetite for more. The 36-year-old pitching ace came in from the bull pen and reticed pinch hitter Don Zimmer on a pop foul and switch hitter Junior Gilliam on strikes with the bases loaded to preserve a 9-7 vie- tory. Bob Buhl, first of four Braves' pitchers, got the decision. It was Spahn's first appearance against the Dodgers since June 5, 1956, when, in a starting role here, he was knocked out of the box in the second inning and tagged with a loss. Careerwise, he has beaten them only 13 times while losing 24. He last defeated Brooklyn Sept. 25, 1951, at Boston. Spahn, who has won 213 major league games and is considered one of the game's southpaw greats, is an intensely proud man. The fact that he is kept out of series after series with Brooklyn- something opposing players won't let him forget—rankles him. Manager Fred Haney, like his predecessor, Charlie Grimm, refuses to start Spahn against the Dodgers because Haney believes there is no percentage in feeding a left-hander to their hight-hand hitting power. Spahn said probably the only reason he faced the Dodgers at all was that Haney hoped to get rid of Sandy Amoros, a dangerous left-handed batter who had been announced as the pinch hitter for Roger Craig, sixth Brooklyn pitcher. After Amoros was announced, Haney called in Spahn and Dodgers' Manager Walter Alston inserted the right-handed swinging Zim mer for Amoros. Later Alston said Zimmer was the only right-hand ed hitter left on his bench. One Dollar Got Me Ten That's What I Call Easy Money Just like finding ten bucks in my garage ...

The story In this column in Saturday's paper said admission would be free to all players "in" uniform and it should have read "with" uniform. "One of the%rensons for holding the picnic after the season is so we can get all the boys together at the same time In the.. same place and collect the uniforms," Coach Don Burgess said. "That's the reason we want them to bring their uniforms to the picnic so they can turn them in Monday night," he said. * » * IN TRAINING: Denny Wernimont, the Iowa School for the Deaf star, is in training in Washington, D. C, for the forthcoming Deaf Olympic games in Italy. Wernimont will leave the nation's capitol this week for New York and will depart from there on Thursdny for a trip to London. From London the American party will tour through Europe to Italy. The games are scheduled from Aug. 25 through the 31st. * * * LIKE FOOTBALL: "The All-Stars scored six touchdowns and added an extra point," Rollie Niehaus, Carroll Merchant hurler, said in "describing the Parochial League All-Star game in Arcadia on Sunday. "At" the "end "Of five it "was 37-1 and we were able to enforce the 10-run rule," he said. Arcadia's league champions were the victims of* the football score in' the Parochial League baseball game. « Squeeze in Ninth Lets Leaders Win •'•••> COONlftAPIDS — League leading Cocto Rapids literally squeezed out a victory, 4-3, over Breda here Sunday night to retain a two- game lead in the Central State League.' N An error, a pair of wild pitches and a squeeze bunt gave Coon Rapids the winning marker in the bottom of the ninth inning. With the score knotted in the eighth by Ron Mau's home run, the winners forged the pay-off rally in the final frame. Dick Textor was safe on an error to lead off. Mike Blanchard popped .out to the first baseman on an attempted sacrifice. Floyd Leitlng uncorked a wild, pitch and Textor went to second. Another wild pitch put the runner on third. Intentional Passes At that point Breda decided to intentionally pass both Dale Tryon and Dale McCarty to load the bases and set up a force situation. Then Mau came to the plate and laid down a squeeze bunt that scored Textor with the winning run. ; Jerry Ibach, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter and then took over the mound chores, got his seventh victory of the campaign and his 22nd consecutive pitching victory without a defeat. Big Inning Breda scored a pair in the fourth inning when Kenny Goecke singled and Don Schenkelberg did likewise. Dor Koster forced Schenkelberg on a f i e 1 d e r's choice, but Kenneth King tripled and two runs tallied. Coon Rapids got both runs back in the bottom of the same frame. Jerry Doran singled and Marvin Streams tripled him home. Ibach got a pinch hit single to score Streams. Breda took the lead in the sixth when Don Koster was safe on an error in right field. Then King singled to center, and Tryon bobbled the ball and Koster raced home from first. The league leaders entertain Churdan on Thursday night and on Friday night they entertain Slater in the annual "Merchant's Niflht" game. The Slater team is led by Gary Thompson of Ail- American basketball fame at Iowa State College.

Williams Doubts He Can Hit- .400 By DAVE O'HARA BOSTON (J^-BostonV-Ted Williams, enjoying one of his greatest seasons with the Red Sox while approaching his 39th birthday, doesn't think he can hit .400 —but don't bet against it. The last of the "400" hitters, feeling good and acting at times with the enthusiasm of a rookie, is on a tremendous batting spree that has boosted his average 46 points to .389 since the All Star game. Despite that surge, Williams thinks that his aging legs will prevent him from reaching the coveted .400 mark—which he surpassed with a 406 mark in 1941. "If I had the speed I would have a chance t« do it," Ted said. "You have to have the legs to beat out a few hits during the season." ' . t Williams said a player needs three things to hit .400: (1) He has to have a good year (2) He has to get the breaks and (3) He has to have the legs. "I'm having 9 good year, I'm getting the breaks, but I don't have - the legs." the big slugger added. Since the break for the All Star game July 9, Williams has collected 38 hits, including 10 homers, one triple and seven doubles,' in 72' official times at bat—a .528 clip. During his hitting rampage, Williams has collected 24 walks to boost his total of 84. Of that number, 25 have been intentional — eight more than his American League mark for a season set in 1955 and one less than the major league record by Brooklyn's Duke Snider. AUDUBON - Bill Burgess hit. a pair of home runs and Don.Bur­ gess set a new league strike out record of 17 as Carroll raced past Audubon, 9-3, here Sunday night. ' The big Carroll righthander scattered 10 Cardinal hits over the nine inning route and was in trouble only in the sixth when a double and two singles netted two Audubon runs. Twice the Merchant pilot struck out the side as he chalked up the new strike out record to eclipse the mark of 16 held jointly by Jerry. Ibach of Coon Rapids and Chuck Wills of Churdan. Bill Burgess duplicated a feat he achieved against Breda on July 25 when the big first • sacker smacked a pair of-homers. He hit a solo blast in the fifth and added a three-run round-tripper in the eighth to account for the final Carroll runs Sunday night. Carroll opened the scoring In the first inning. Bob Simpson walked but was forced at second by Cletus Heinrich who later advanced to second on a wild pitch. Ray Blankenship singled to right to score Heinrich. Three in Third The Merchants added three more in the third. Bob Rothmeyer walked and went to second on a wild pitch. Don Burgess walked. Simpson was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Heinrich was safe on a fielder's choice as Rothmeyer was forced at the plate. Blankenship's grounder got through the shortstop on an error as Don Burgess and Simpson raced across the plate. Then Heinrich stole third and Blankenship stole second to make room at first for' Bill Burgess, who walked. Sam Long grounded When Jockey Bill Hartack flew from Chicago to Delaware Park on June 22 it was a productive trip. He won the Dover Stakes with Bolero U. and the New Castle Stakes with Princess Turis; .both in photo finishes. MOVING Loco I ond Notion Wid« Stoma* — Crating — PtcM'ni . Ph. D«y 2540 Ph.

Churdan in 13-2 Romp; Wills Victor CHURDAN - Chuck Wills led the Indies of Churdan to a third- place tie with Audubon in the Central State League as he hurled a four-hitter against Manning in 132 victory here Sunday. Wills chalked up 16 strike outs and contributed a double and single to a 10-hit attack oh Manning's Roger Ohde. The Indies had to come from behind in an error-marred game, but they put together three fourr run innings and added a single marker in the fifth to even their season record at eight and eight. Manning got off to a one-run lead in the second when Schaeu- ble doubled with two away and Schoeppner singled him home. Costly Errors Churdan pummeled Manning in the fourth on five singles, three Blue Sox errors and a sacrifice fly for four runs. Art Gute of Carroll made his first appearance in a Churdan uniform this season and- doubled home a run for the Indies in the fifth. Manning got one run back in the sixth when Lucas got an infield single and went to second on a throwing error. He went to third on Rostermundt's single and scored on a wild pitch, ' Fatal Frames Churdan bounded back with four more in the bottom of that inning. A pair of singles, two errors, hit batsman, a walk and a sacrifice fly accounted for the runs. In the eighth inning a single, double, five Manning errors and a walk led to four more Churdan runs. Gute and Wills each collected a double and single for the winners and Paul Trost contributed a pair of singles to the Churdan attack. Line Score: Manning 010 001 000— 2— 4—11 Churdan 000 414 04 -13—10— 2 Ohde and Irlmeier Wills and Vogel to third and was safe on a field* er's choice as Blankenship was forced but Heinrich scored. Rich. Bengfort walked to load the bases again, but Ron Hested grounded out to retire the side. Counter Attack Audubon got one of the rung back in the bottom of the third; With one away; Rich Lewer singled to center and went to third on Cloy Kneeskern's single to right. As Larry Clark hit Into a fielder's choice to retire Kneeskern, Lewer scored. Then Scott grounded out to end the threat, Carroll's next run came in the fifth when Bill Burgess hit a homer with one away and none.on. Audubon came within two runs of the winners with a rally in the sixth that netted a pair. Clark led off with a double and went - to third on Scott's single to center. Eagen filed to center for the first out. Perfect Night Ray Johnson, who had a perfect night with four for four, singled to right and Clark and Scott both scored. The rally died as Owen Bateson was retired on a grounder to third and Murphy struck out. The Merchants wrapped up the scoring in the eighth with . four more runs. After Rothmeyer grounded out, Don Burgess was safe on an error at short. Simpson walked. That marked the departure of Walt Murphy and Green came on in relief. Heinrich flied to right for the second out. Blankenship whiffed at the plate but got to first safely when catcher Lewer lost the ball. With the bases loaded, a combination of a wild pitch and passed ball allowed Don Burgess to score and the other two runners to move up. It was actually a wild pitch, but catcher Lewer made no effort to retrieve the ball and it rolled through a fence in front of the grandstand. On the play, Don Burgess scored easily. All Shook Up By that time relief hurler Green was "shook up" and he was further shaken by a blast off the bat of Bill Burgess that easily cleared the right field fence. Long drew a pass, and Bengfort also was walked. Long stole third, but Hested ended the inning by striking out. Carroll threatened again in the ninth. With" Don Burgess on "fir& via a walk, Simpson laid down a perfect bunt and beat a high throw to first but was ruled safe by the scorer on an error on the pitcher and thus was deprived ot a hit. Heinrich hit into a double play to retire the side. Don Burgess made short work of the final half inning by stfikfrig out Green and McLaughlin and getting Lewer on a grounder to third. • Box Scores CARROLL Simpson, rf Heinrich, It | Blankenship. 2b .......— 5 Short, ss 9 B.
