if mmmiimiMmiininimi U i from daio barton's KEYBOARD MtlMMHIlim in H*MI PROBLEM: Two teams in the Central State League find themselves confronted with a vexing problem. When the season ends this week, neither Breda nor Churdan will have played in 20 games. Ordinarily that might not complicate matters too much and the game might be crossed off the list. But the final week of play "finds the two clubs locked in ties for third and fifth in the league. At the moment, Breda is tied for fifth with Manning, but Manning could gain the upper hand with a win over Carroll on Sunday. Then Breda would need another win, at the expense of Churdan, to regain the tie. Churdan is currently tied with Audubon for. third, but Audubon could break that deadlock with a victory over Coon Rapids on Friday. Efforts have been made between officials of Breda and Churdan to play off the postponed game either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, but nothing definite has been decided because of conflicting interests. • * • ECLECTIC TITLE: A Fort Dodge golfer who is well known on the Carroll Country Club course, Sondra Anderson, was edged out of the title in the sixth annual Eclectic tournament by Judy Burnes, of Oes Moines. Anderson carded a two-day best hole score of 99, but the Dei Moines golfer bettered that with a 77. Linda Cahill,>of Keokuk, was third with an 80. Ann Leahy, of Carroll, gained the championship flight in qual- Ifying play but failed to match the strokes of Burnes, Anderson and Cahlll. * * * COHN FAILS: Andy Cohn's bid for the national girls golf title ended Friday in Denver. She was eliminated, 3-2, in the semi-finals by Judy EUer, 16, of Old Hickory, Tenn. • » * TRY-OUTS: Try-outs for the triangular swimming meet at Red Oak, Thursday night, August 22, will be held in the American Legion Swimming Pool at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jtita Morrissey, pool manager, announced today. All members of the team taking part in the intercity meet here Wednesday night as well as others who qualify are asked *o report for try-outs. A double team will be picked if possible. Carroll swimmers were defeated by the Red Oak team 108 to 72 in the Wednesday night meet. Red Oak is regarded as one of the strongest teams in Western Iowa. Gil Hodges of the Brooklyn Dodgers hit only .278 in Class B with Newport News, Va., in 1946 yet made the majors the following season.

Few of the Dodgers made mention of the meeting, when questioned ' by reporters, but one. choosing to be unidentified, said "It was a little rough." Alston, with his third place Milwaukee, admitted ha* hid held the meeting, but explained it by saying "A lot of guys' were late for infield practice and I wanted to make .... sure, it didn't happen again." Stagg Hale And Hearty By DICK MEISTER STOCKTON, Calif. (JR-Looking as if he'll live as long as the game he's grown up with, football's Amos Alonzo Stagg celebrated his 95th birthday today.. Stagg, hale and hearty after 65 years of coaching, has no plans for retirement. H* has served as, an advisory coach at Stockton Col-a, lege the past two seasons and hopes to be invited back this fall. Even at home Stagg has refused to slow down Recently a group of friends, fearing that hia lawn mowing work was too difficult with the old-fashioned cutter he was using, sent him a power ma chine. Need Exercise He sent it back, saying simply, "I need the exercise." • Stagg does all the yard work in his moderate-sized Stockton home but still craves more exercise. So twice a day he swings a golf club on the lawn—a hundred heal thy swings at a time. It was way 'bock in 1887 that Stagg first swung a baseball bat for Yale. In 1880 he was named an end of Walter Camp's first All-America team, then went on to coach the game at his alma mater. In 1892 he joined the newly opened University of Chicago and stayed on there as director of athletics, football coach and sometimes track,, baseball and basketball mentor until university regu lations forced his retirement at 70. Innovations During that period Stagg devel oped football innovations includ ing the forerunners of the modern T-formation as well as the huddle, flanking ends and cross blocking Stagg didn't end his career with the Chicago retirement—he moved west to College of the Pacific, for more than 10 years. His home in Stockton is a ver- tide football museum, containing hundreds of mementos of the game to which hr has contributed more than any man. Keeping the house in order is a big Job for his wife, Stella. 81, but he pitches in to help the woman he calls "my coach." At 95 the future holds much for football's grand old man who says he plans "to keep my promise to God—to work with youths as long as I'm allowed to stay here." Quinlin Hit On Cheek by Pitch in 8th BREDA — Three-run rallies in three different innings netted the Breda Eagles a 9-1 decision over Churdan in a Central State League game here Thursday. The victory lifted the Eagles into a tie with Manning for fifth in the standings and dropped Churdan into a tie with Audubon for third. Maury Julich throttled the Churdan Indies on seven hits as he struck out five and walked only if our in recording the victory. He also helped his own cause with a triple and two singles at the plate. Quinlin Hospitalized The victory was costly to the Eagles, however, as they lost the services of Jack Quinlin who was hit on the left cheekbone in the eighth inning and was hospitalized with facial injuries. Quinlin'sr Condition at St. Anthony Hospital, in Carroll, was described as satisfactory Friday morning. Churdan's manager, Paul Trost, led his team's attack with a double and two singles. Breda rolled up a quick lead in the first inning. Jim Bengfort walked and stole second. Heisterkamp singled and Kenny Goecke duplicated the effort. Don Schenkelberg singled Bengfort home. Lou Oswald hit into a fielder's choice as Heisterkamp was erased. Then Kenneth King singled both Goecke and Schenkelberg home. Widen Gap In the third fcame, the Eagles widened the gap. Goecke walked and stole second. Schenkelberg was safe on an error. Oswald walked, but King popped out. Goecke came in oh a passed ball. Then Don Koster singled to score Schenkelberg and Oswald TODAY'S BASEBALL By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W. L. Pet.

And maybe, the Chicago Cubs. All the Braves have to worry about, now that they've won 10 in a row after Thursday night's 81 victory at Cincinnati, is the haunting 1956 season, when they won 11 straight, had a 5V4-game edge—and then blew it in the last week as Brooklyn won the pennant by we game. Remmeber 1951 And they also must be remembering the 1951 season, when even Brooklyn's old pros couldn't hold a 13Vj -game August lead and were beaten in a pennant playoff by the New York Giants. The Braves are back home tonight for the first of a four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals whose slump is every bit as surprising and sudden as Milwaukee's surge. The Red Birds lost their ninth in a row—their longest skid since 1947—with a 4-1 setback at Chicago. The seventh place Cubs now are 9-7 over the Cards — and have beaten the Braves in 7 of 13. Bums Blow Leads Brooklyn stayed in third place, also 8% back and within one percentage point of St. Louis, as the Dodgers twice blew leads and lost to the Giant$ 9-4 in the only" other NL game scheduled. In the American, the New York Yankees went 5Vz ahead again, defeating Boston 6-3, although Ted Williams. pushed his average, to .393, while the secbnd-place Chicago White Sox gave up five unearned runs and lost to Cleveland 5-4. Kansas City whipped Detroit 7-2 in the only other game. Hank Aaron, the NL's bat leader, hammered across five runs with a pair of homers as the Braves swung for 12 hits. Eddie Mathews, and ex-Redleg Bob Hazle also homered for Milwaukee. Loses Shutout Warren Spahn won his 13th with an eight-hitter, losing a shutout on an unearned run in the second. Spahn got a four-run cushion in the first that chased Hal Jeffcoat. Bob Turley won his fifth in a row for a 10-3 record, but needed Bob Grim's relief when Frank Malzone's home run junked his shutout in the eighth. Loser Wil- lard Nixon held the Yankees to three hits, one of them Elston Howard's home runt for six frames. Gil McDougald drove in three runs, and hit a two-run homer in the eighth to clinch it. The Indians shook their six- game losing string in the sixth when southpaw Jack Harshmah walked one run home, then gave up a grarid-slammer to Chico Car- fasquel that wiped out a 3-0 White Sox lead. Don Mossi went all the way to win his ninth. Rookie Wins Dale Long's home run and Bob Speake's two-run single nailed the Cubs ninth victory in 12 games in the second as Sam Jones lost his seventh. Rookie Moe Drabowsky won his ninth with a six-hitter. Rookie Valmy Thomas drove in four runs with a triple and homer for the Giants as Ramon Monzant, third of four pitchers, won his first. Three runs in the sixth, two unearned, did it. Don Drysdale, Brooklyn's top winner with 10, lost his seventh. Woody Held, Billy Martin and Hec Lopez homered for the A's as Jack Urban won his second. Jim Bunning, who has won 14, lost his fifth, secod to Kansas City. In the eighth, King got a rally underway with a single. Koster popped to the pitcher. Quinlin was hit by a pitch. Julich tripled to score two runs. Bengfort fanned, but Julich scored on a wild pitch before Churdan could quell the rally. Churdan's lone run came in the ninth. Bob Vogel and Jack Pier- rick singled. Hartsler popped out. Ransom was safe on an error to load the bases. Warren Rushton grounded into a fielder's choice as Vogel scored and Pierrick was erased. Then Wallace grounded out to end the game. Line Score: Churdan 000 000 001—1- 9 2 Breda 303 000 03 —9-U-l Swansen, Wallace (2), Pierrick (4) and Vogel Julich and Heisterkamp Dick Mayer said the birdie putt he sank on the 18th green at Inverness in Toledo to tie for the National Open title was a 10-foot putt with a four-inch break. He beat Cary Middlecoff in the playoff, 72 to 79.

Ohio (ffi - The Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants have 11 more weeks to decide this year whether they'll move to the West Coast as has been rumored. But to minor league baseball officials who concluded a two-day meeting here Thursday the decision can't come soon enough. "I wish someone would tell us what they're going to do before next year," commented Ed Do-j herty, president ol the American Assn. The deadline is Oct. 31 for the shifting of a franchise in organized baseball. j The reason for the minor league's impatience about the shifts, if they come, is that invasion of Pacific Coast League territory by the Dodgers and Giants probably will start a chain reaction that will be felt in all the 28 minor leagues Doherty said rumors have been flying already about possible shifts of the Minneapolis and St. Paul clubs in the American Assn. Dick Butler. Texas League prexy, told newsmen that two clubs in his circuit, which he did not identify, want to go to a higher league. One-Man Bench Cause Of Redbird Collapse By JIM VAN VALKENBURG ST. LOUIS UFh- Did a "one-man bench" cause the sudden and almost total collapse of the St. Louis Cardinals? Stunned by a pine-game losing streak, fans and "newsmen looking for the reason have nominated Entertain Before Wedding Ceremony (Time* Herald N»w» Berries) STAR — Dr. and Mrs. G. R.

Tough Card For Manning Manning High School 's football squad will begin workouts on Aug. 24, following physicals. Senior and junior candidates will receive their equipment on Aug. 22; freshmen and sophomores on the 23. Grid hopes are dim this season, according to coach John Beach, in his third year at the school. Boys ending their play for Manning last year were Bob Laverty. Jon Groteluschen, Royce Genzen, Ver- k non Wagner, Ray Fink, Robert Horbach,- Larry ZerwasY Larry Nielsen. .Tom Koon, Dennis Saunders, Vic Schwiesow, Ronald Hodne. Larry Lohrmann, Larry Popp, Dale Jansen and Eugene Haberl. Others on' last year's roster are seniors Gary Neubaum, Allen Laurinat, Carl Saunders and Gary Koon; Juniors Larry Rowedder, Junior Bonneson, David Peters, David Sextro and Phil Knaack.

Run Out of Gas Cunningham, a left-handed belt­ er from New Jersey, has. been just about the only man Hutch could rely on for help. Hutchinson has two catchers — Hal Smith and Hobie Landrith, but otherwise it has been a case of Seven Iron Horses and Cunningham. The iron horses simply have run out of gas. d Ten days ago the Red Birds led both leagues in team hitting, and more runs than any club except Cincinnati, and led the National League. This same team has scored only 13 runs in nine games since then and only once did it come close to victory. That was in a 4-3 defeat to the seventh-place Chicago Cubs, who have taken six of the nine games in the St. Louis losing streak. Fans Won't Talk On Aug. 6, Cardinal fans were trying to find ways of getting tickets to the first St. Louis World Series in 11 years. Now the club is BVi games out as it opens a four-game series at Milwaukee and a lot of folks won't even talk about them. The collapse isn't as sudden as it sounds. The present hitting slump actually is 25 games old. Some observers, aware the iron horses were wearing thin, saw it coming. While winning 12 of 16 prior to the nosedive, the Red- Birds were scoring barely four runs a game and winning on great pitching. Blame Brass How did the bench get that way? Some fans blame General Manager .Frank . Lane's dealings. Others criticize club owner August A. Busch Jr for holding onto first baseman Tom Alston because he cost $100,000. Others, including Lane himself, blast Hutchinson for using aging Walker Cooper. West Coast To Get Nod From Giants NEW.YORK W - The, West Coast very likely finally will have fa major league baseball franchise within the next 72 hours, with San Francisco claiming the New. York Giants. .- y. e The question of whether the Giants should flee New York and shift to California will be­ fore the club's board of directors Monday by , President Horace Stoneham, who will recommend acceptance, The board appears to be the last hurdle in San Francisco's bid to win the Giants. Stoneham already is sold. So is.the National League, which approved such a switch- May 28. Little Doubt One or two members of the board reportedly are against a. shift to San Francisco, but there apparently is little doubt that Stoneham can win them over. San Francisco's offer was received in official form by Stoneham last week, and starting with a 45,000-capacity . city-built stadium, meets Stoneham's earlier demand for a "satisfactory proposition.'^ Closed-Circuit Stoneham probably will place a contract proposition for closed-circuit televising of Giant games in San Francisco before the board Monday. The contract reportedly Carries a minimum guarantee of a million dollars annually and Stoneham already has advised his stock-holders, "I can sign the contract the minute we're ready to move." Such a deal would double the club's present radio-television income, Stoneham said. 'Golden Gate' It's this prospective wealth from TV, plus an indicated golden gate at the Golden Gate, which has made Stoneham, despite family ties with New York, a believer in San Francisco. He plans a trip to San Francisco soon after Monday's meeting to check further details in the franchise >v transfer and inspect Seals Stadium, where the Giants are expected to play until the new stadium is finished in 1959. While no Giant official has 'coin firmed reported details of the San Francisco offer, none has denied that the bid, in addition to the eight • million • dollar stadium, includes: 1. A rental fee figured at 7 per cent of gross attendance each year. 2. Club control of concessions; 3. City control of parking facilities. Chuck Logg, Rutgers crew coach, has been associated with intercollegiate rowing for almost 50 years. MOVING Local and Nationwide Storage — Crating — Peeking Ph. Day 2540 Ph.
