Officials in that city figure it will Reaffirmed Stand take 1,250 fans per game to keep Early today Parker reaffirmed the club out of the red ink. Since his stand, saying "The cemetery Mason City's season average is 1,100 per game, it is easy to see Bancroft's Menke Hurls Mates Past Mason City, 13-2 BANCROFT W) -~ Bancroft won the State American Legion junior baseball championship Monday night, defeating Mason City 13-2. Pitcher Denny Menke led Bancroft's ll-hit attack with 3 singles* while holding Mason City to 4 safeties. Mason City, trailing 4-0 after three innings, cut the lead to 4-2 after six innings but was unable to pull any closer. The champs added another run in the. sixth, then polished off the victory with eight runs In the ninth.. The triumph was Bancroft's 25th against 1 defeat. The loss was Mason City's 7th in 21 contests. Dedham "9" Puts Newton On Sideline Golden Opportunity For Red-Hot Braves is full of indispensible men An official high up in the Detroit organization, who declined the use of his name^said today "Parker is out and Wilson is in. It's as simple as that." Wilson, 43, has been a Lion assistant coach for eight seasons, and once before was considered for the head coaching job when it was awarded to Parker. Wilson played his college . football at Northwestern and later was a star player for 12> seasons with the Chicago Bears. Terse Announcement Parker, awarded a two-year contract last winter after an extensive battle with some of the club's directors who opposed more than a one-year contract last winter made his startling withdrawal In a terse, two-sentence announcement. Many of the people at the $lo-a-plate dinner thought he was joking and laughed, then sat in disbelief as the veteran coach insisted "I'm not kidding —I'm through." Parker had "resigned" before- several times privately and once officially to club President Edwin J. Anderson In. the past, things were ironed out. Time to Get Oat Called upon as the final speak er of the evening and expected to review his 1957 club, Parker made a single introductory remark and the jr said: "When, you get. to situation where you can't handle football players, it's time to get out —and that's what I'm doing tonight. I'm through with football j have over 1,000 to 1,200 paid ad- in Peferoit." ' missions at every home game. why there are financial woes It all comes down to one significant point. To have the type of baseball played in the Southern Minnesota League, or in the heyday of the old Iowa State League, you nave to get big crowds and play at least a 40 game schedule. Furthermore, there must be a fund of money available to underwrite the club and thus guard against the possibility of the whole venture blowing up in mid-season because there is no money in the bank account to pay the players. They call it semi-pro, but let's face the facts. Players like Denny Rinaldi, former Carroll star, don't journey from the vicinity of Cleveland, Ohio toMoaildsnaaotC.ywn land, Ohio to Mason City, Iowa and hang around waiting for a cut of the melon at the end of the season after all expenses are taken out We have the alternative to the fast-type local baseball in the present Central State League set-up— a strictly "split the pot" type of operation that is about as pure semi : pro as you can get. The other type is actually more professional than semi-professional. j Since the current type of -eorpna Since,the current type of operation here is not bringing fans to the park in record numbers, it might cause some to hanker for a return to the other type of operation. But it should be remembered that what applies to Mason City would apply to Carroll. If you want that type of baseball, you must the rally. Short Gets Win Although playing at home, the Knights were in the role of the visitors and Jim Short nicked up the victory in relief by blanking s . 4 ,. .

The victory enabled Kuemper to finish the season with *a 17-4 mark and gave the Knights undisputed claim to the summer high school league baseball crown. In the curtain-raiser, the Kuemper Midgets, coached by Steve Garbier, measured the Kuemper Parochial League All-Stars by a 13-4 count. Thwart Early Bid In the feature attraction, Kuemper made an early .bid but was thwarted on the base path. Dave Tigges walked with one away in the second frame.

Rallies Falter Another Kuemper rally got underway in the sixth when Bob Tigges walked with one away. | Jerry Collison struck out and Joe Boyer grounded out to end the frame Exira's most serious threat came in the sixth. Green was safe on error and Spoo was safe on another error as Green advanced to third. But Payne popped out on an attempted sacrifice. Bopp fanned and Jessen likewise struck out to end the threat.

They are going to play it over this week. And if St. Louis, Brooklyn, Cincinnati and Philadelphia ain't dead, now's the time for 'em. to start breathin'. •» : ;;„ In six days last week, Milwaukee swept three at home from Cincinnati, then took three of three at Sjt. Louis, moving from half a game behind into a 5V game lead. This week, the Braves play three at Cincinnati, starting tonight and four with St. Louis, beginning Friday night at Milwaukee. . Cards in Chicago The second-place Cardinals, who skidded from the top with a six- game losing streak that started with a three-game sweep by Chi- Cuban Posts Decision in Good Battle when they o»en their last swing through the East next week. It's also a week that could leave the NL race all snarled up again. .At the moment the Braves are rolling, winning seven in a row (their best drive of the year), 14 of 16 and 21 of 26. They're the best in the league against contenders — 38-22 (.633) vs, the Cards, Brooks, Reda" and Phils." This is only the 1 second time' the Braves have held as much as a 5%-game lead since moving, -to Milwaukee in 1953. They .led Cincinnati by 5Vt and Brooklyn by six July v 26 last year—when they finished a game behind Brooklyn's] champs. There's only a 5Vi-game spread between first and second at the moment in the American League too. But it looks like a mile and a half. The New York Yankees have the bulge, after holding a seven- cago's Cubs at St. Louis, opened] game edge a week ago. The Yan a three-game series at Chicago j kees were only 3-4 for the week, today before the return shot at the Braves. „ Cincinnati, in fourth place, seven games back, shook off that three-game set at Milwaukee which left the Redlegs 11.-2 agsinst the Braves to sweep the Cubs in three at week's end. This week, the Redlegs again wind up against the Bruins, with four at Chicago beginning Friday. Eastern Foes Third-place Brooklyn was only 2M games behind a. week ago, then lost three of four to New York's sixth-place Giants and split four with last-place Pittsburgh to trail by 6Vfe. This week the Dodgers play three with the Giants, beginning tonight at New York, and another four with the Pirates, at Jersey City and in Brooklyn. Philadelphia, nine games back and in fifth, split two at Pittsburgh and lost two of three at New York last week. Now the Phils are home, playing the first of two with the'Bucs tonight and then beginning a four-game set with the Giants Friday. Prohibitive Lead In short, it's a week that could give the Braves a prohibitive lead but Chicago's second-place White Sox won only four of seven. That's not the kind of ball that beats the Yankees. New York has three games at Boston against the third-place Red Sox (12 games behind), beginning tonight, then finishes the week at home with four against Baltimore's surprising Orioles, NEW YORK UrV-Frahkte- Ipjtoli. to«has a degree from Manhattan College but as far as some of the haiigers-on boxing are concerted, the young schoolteacher - fighter: flunked a .big, test Monday. night.

Zulueta, a veteran of more than 100 fights, is ranked third among the lightweight contenders by Ring -Magazine and fifth by the National Boxing Assn. An upset would have shot the 21 underdog into the elite ten of the division.
