WORST FLOOD Worst flood in recorded history is considered to be the flood of 1228 in Holland, when 100,000 persons reputedly were drowned in the Friesland section. isox Only Four Games Behind NY. By ED W1LKS The Associated Press Those Chicago White Sox die so hard, who knows? They might just manage to stay alive.* You can smile, pal, but don't laugh. After sweeping a pair from Baltimore 6-2 and 3-0, while New York lost a,single jame at Detroit .7-2 Sunday, the White Sox are only four games behind the Yankees in the American League chase. Another Yankee loss at Detroit today, while the Sox are idle, and a Chicago sweep in a three-game series with New York opening at Cemiskey Park Tuesday night would bring the Sox within three percentage points of the top. Could Upset Dope All of which could upset the preseason dope, making it an all-the- way race in the AL while Milwaukee runs away with it in the National. The Braves grabbed a 7%-game lead again by defeat ing Philadelphia 7-2 as Brooklyn knocked off second-place St. Louis 6-5. The New York Giants, pressing for the first division, clobbered Cincinnati 10-1. Chicago's Cubs, blanked 3-0 on four hits by Vern Law. bounced back with 16 hits in the nightcap at Pittsburgh for an 8-2 decision. In the other AL games, Kansas City defeated Boston 3-2 and Cleveland swept Washington 3-2 and 6-4. Don't knock the White Sox's chances. The Yankees are only 5-5 at Detroit, and have lost four of six on this final Western trip. At Chicago, the champs will pitch Few In Son Francisco Know Giants Lineup By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor SAN FRANCISCO - (NEA The first thing Horace Stoneham discovered upon his arrival In San Francisco wa$ that the National League Giants had moved into a red hot American League town. Thrdugh circumstances rather than design the Golden City long since was thrown into the American League camp. Down through the years, American League scouts consistently have beaten those of the National to prized products around San Francisco Bay. f 3*"-"' ; "We're proud to be your Edsel Dealer" JIM HOULIHAN Houlihan Motors Corner of Highway 71 and 2rd Street Carroll, Iowa COME IN AND LEARN THE FIRST-HAND FACTS ABOUT AMERICA'S NEWEST, MOST REMARKABLE CAR.

Against the Yankees, the White Sox have Jim Wilson, Billy Pierce and Dick Donovan ready—with Bob (No-Hit) Keegan the No. 1 relief man. Keegan Gets Credit It was Keegan who helped get the sweep over the Orioles, throwing a three-hitter in the opener as a follow-up to Tuesday's no-hit job on Washington. The 35-year-old right-hander, now 9-6, walked none and retired the first 10 before Bob Boyd's triple and an infield out scored one In the fourth. Al Fil- arcik homered in the fifth, but the Birds didh't get another hit until Billy Gardner singled in the seventh. The Sox, sc6ring two first-inning runs without a hit and pocketing pair of unearned runs in the second inning of the opener, were blanked on two hits by Bill Wight until the nightcap sixth. Then Sherm Lollar's two-run single and wild pitch nailed it. Billy Fischer won his fifth. Al Kaline 'had half Detroit's eight hits, including his 15th and. 16th homers, both two-run shots. Bob Turley lost it while Billy Hoeft, who won 20 last season, gained a 6-8 record with an eight- hitter. • Yankee Mickey Mantle was 2- v for-3, pushing within two points of Boston's Ted Williams, who was hitless as his bat average skidded to .378. * 2 Hazle Honierg Bob Hazle whacked a pair of three-run homers for -the Braves and also singled in three trips for a .526 average in 57 at bats. Warren Spahn also homered while winning his sixth in a row for a 16-8 record. Robin Roberts lost his 18th. Sal Maglie trudged in from the bullpen and saved it for the Dodgers, fanning Ken Boyer on three pitches with the bases loaded and two runs home in the ninth. Don Drysdale won his 13th.Gil Hodges drove in three runs with his 21st homer and a double off loser Sam Jones. Don Mueller had four hits, two of them home runs, for the Giants. Ruben Gomez won his 14th with a six-hitter, losing a shutout in the ninth when Ed Bailey cracked a home run. Ex-Pirate Dale Long had three of the Cubs' hits off Law, who won his 10th, and lined three more in the nightcap. Moe Drabowsky fanned nine while losing the opener. Vic Power, Hector Lopez and Woody Held homered for Kansas City against Tom Brewer. Tom Gorman won with a six-hitter. The Indians came from "two runs back in both games, winning the' opener on homers by Gene Woodling, Al Smith and Jim. Hegan as Mike Garcia five-hit the Nats and struck out seven. Ray Narleski saved the nightcap for Cal McLish, retiring the side with the bases loaded in the ninth. Golden Gate Park and Bay area sandlots contributed most generously to the subsistence of the great Yankee dynasty. A long list of stickouts could be named Starting before Tony Lazzeri and Mark Koenlg and running through Frank Crosetti, Lefty Gomez,and Joe Di- Magglo down to Git McDougald, Jerry Coleman and Billy Martin. The man on the street here would have preferred any American League club other than Washington to the Giants. The National League just doesn't ring a bell with him. Newspaper Poll This was brought out by a news-, paper poll of more than 500 people picked at random from the telephone book. Only a comparative handful could answer the question, 'Who is manager of the New York Giants?" despite the fact Bill Rig- new is out of Walnut Creek, a suburb of Oakland across the bay. Most of them were acquainted! with Willie Mays, of course, and a few knew a fellow named Antonelli or something like that although they could not • recall his first name. A few singled out Bobby Thomson largely because of his epic three-run home run in the 1951 play -' off with the Dodgers. Dusty Rhodes was remembered for his pinch-hitting in the 1954 World Series. Other than that the new customers of the Giants' immediate future had meager knowledge of the club's personnel. The same people readily rattled off 20 or more Yankee names, fully aware, that even Casey Stengel doesn't know where they are going to be from day to day, No one attempted to'name the regular lineup or batting order. the group was equally familiar with the Red Sox, San Francisco being a Boston farm for the past two years. The Sox helped American League sentiment, ad did Joe Gordon, who currently has the Seals out In front in a four-club Pacific Coast League pennant pursuit. Packed Stadium The Red Sox last spring flew all the way from their Sarasota, Fla., training base and packed Seals Stadium with 21,000 on the evening of the severest earthquake California has experienced since 1906. The crowd got a tremendous belt out of Ted Williams, another California product, hitting the ball eight miles. While r e c u r r e n t shocks were going on, the Bosox played to 58,000 in three games over the weekend. The Indians have appeared in San Francisco each spring since they made Tucson their conditioning base. In 1947 they drew more than 27,000, the biggest baseball assemblage in Pacific Coast his tory. The outfield was roped off and more than 10,000 were turned away. While training on the coast, the White Sox attracted turnduts of 20,000 in San Francisco. This doesn't mean that the Giants won't be supported or develop rivalry in San Francisco. Los Angeles and San Francisco are as natural rivals as the Giants and Dodgers have been since the days of John McGraw and Wilbert Robinson. The point here is that the New York Giants practically have to be introduced in San Francisco. Roberts Out As o Starter For Phillies PHILADELPHIA .(* — Robin Roberts, veteran mainstay of the Philadelphia Phillies pitching staff has been dropped as a'starting 1 hurler by Manager Mayo Smith. After Sunday's 7-3 loss to the' Milwaukee Braves, In which Robbie gave up six hits, including two. homers in 3 1-3 innings, Smith said he had decided to replace him in the pitching rotation. "Yes, I'm dropping him. (Don) Cardwell and (Jack) Meyer will take his place. What else can I do?" Smith told a newsman. Roberts has been a great favorite with the fans since he joined the club in 1948. He posted a 15-15 record his first full season and for the next six years straight was among the 20 game winners. Last season he missed it by a single victory but lost 18 over the route. Sunday's game was his 18th loss against 8 wins, one of the worst records in the majors. Robbie has relied heavily upon his sizzling fast ball over the years and there is general agreement that the 30-year-old righthander's loss of speed has been the major factor in his poor showing of late. An excellent control pitcher, Roberts has also been plagued for some time by the "gopher ball", the home run pitch. He set a league record in this unenviable department, with 41 round trippers in 1955. Thus far this season he has given up 35 homers. His last completed game, a heart-breaking-ninth inning loss to the New York Giants her' Aug. 16, is as good an example as any of the effects of the home run pitch on his record. He had a four-hit shutout going into the final frame, one of his best, mound efforts of the season. Then Willie Mays opened with a single and Ray Jablonski followed with a smash to the left field roof. Final score: 2-1, Giants. TODAY'S BASEBALL By The Associated Press NATIONAL LEAGUE W . L.

LOUIS UR - Veteran Ed Updegraff, a tall, balding Arizona surgeon, is the new champion of the gruelling Western Amateur, and no one was more surprised than the doctor himself. The 35-year-old Updegraff made reservations to return to his home in Tucson, Ariz., before each of the first three rounds of match play and had to cancel them. "I expected to qualify for the top 16 in match play, but that was all," Updegraff said Sunday after defeating Walker Cup player Joe Campbell of Knoxville, Tenn., 9 and 8, in the finals with remarkable iron play. The loose-jointed, 160-pounder upset 19-year-old Phil Rodgers ot La Jolla, Calif., 2 and 1, in the semifinals. Updegraff played 203 ^oles of golf over seven days to get the biggest title of his career on the Old Warson Country Club course, 6,902 yards of rolling greens and dangerous roughs with a 35-36—71 par.
