MONDAY, JULY 18, I960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FAUE Roy Sievers' Loud Bat Carrying Sox Up Ladder (AP) —Roy Sievers rapped his knuckles on the wooden shelf under the mirrow In the Chicago White Sox clubhouse and said, "I hope it keeps up." Sievers, one of the hottest hitters In the American League, Is riding a 20-gamc hitting streak in which he has lifted his average from .241 to .303. "1 can't ever recall being this hoi before," said Sievers who twice has batted .300 in his major league, career. He won rookie honors in 1949 with a .306 mark with the St. Louis "Browns «nd eight years later he finished with .301 with Washington. Sievers' blazing bat has been the big factor in Chicago's recent rise to third place, two games behind the league leading New York Yankees. The hard hitting first baseman singled home two runs in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Baltimore in the first game rind then he triggered a 14-2 second game triumph with a two-run homer In the first timing. 14 During his treak, Steven has collected 32 hits tn 75 at bat* for a .427 average with 23 runs batted in and eight homers, raising his season total to 14. The White Sox* consecutive game hitting record Is 27 set by Luke Appling in 1936. "I'd hate to think where we'd be without him," said Manager A) Lopez In reference to Sievers. Ixipez had other things to cheer about other than Sievers. For the first time this year, right-handers Bob Shaw and Early Wynn were able to provide route- going back-to-back victories. Both Shaw (8-8) and Wynn (5-7) have had difficulty winning this season. Shaw last year had 18 victories and was voted sophomore of 1959 and Wynn contributed 22 triumphs towards Chicago's pennant drive. There was an air of confidence League Leaders BV following the double triumph over Baltimore. "Give that kid there a little credit." said Coach Don Gutteridge, who was pointing to centerfielder Jim Landis.

Slumping at bat and tn the field this season, the 22-year-old Negro first baseman from Mobile, Ala. Sunday was optioned to the Giants Pacific Coast League farm club at Tacoma, Wash. "When a guy is fielding bad and isn't driving in any runs, what are you going to do?" said Manager Tom Sheehan. Although he slugged at a .354 clip with 13 home runs last year after being called up from Phoenix, on July 30, McCovey was hit ting only .244 with 11 homers when sent down on 12-hour recall. "I'll get a chance to play and maybe that will help," the disappointed youngster said. "This is the first time I've experienced anything like this for a season." McCovey has been one of the big disappointments this year for the Giants, currently in fifth place after being tabbed by many as the pennant winner in pre-season forecasts. go, 76; Aaron.

Illinois breeding hen pheasants have decreasd about 20 per cent from the level of 1939. Director Palmer added that the decline' is n o t reflected in the cock pheasant population. Game biologists of the department report there is an ample supply of cock pheasants for the existing hen population over the Illinois pheasant range. The daily limit in cock birds is three with a possession limit of six after opening day. The biologists report that quail and rabbit hunters can expect about the same success as experienced during the 1959 season. Counts indicate that the population of these twq species is normal. Quail season is Nov. 19 to Dec. 28, inclusive with a daily limit of eight and possession limit of 16 after opening day. Rabbit season is Nov. 26 to Jan. 31, inclusive with a daily limit of five and possession limit of 10 after opening day. Nebraska Invites Hunters For the benefit of those who hunt in Nebraska, prospects for pheasant, quail, and prairie grouse hunting seasons are encouraging, reports Dick H. Bchaffer of the Nebraska Game Commission. Nebraska has standard opening dates for its upland game birds so that hunters can plan their hunting trips long in advance. The opening dates are pheasant, Saturday Oct 22; quail, Saturday, Oct. 22, grouse, Saturday Oct. 1. Director M. O. Steen of the Commission, announced that big- game permits, both deer and antelope, are now available tn non residents on an equal basis with resident hunters. Nearly 9,» 000 permits remain for the Nov. 5 to 9, inclusive rifle season (or deer, an unlimited number for the Sept. 10 to Nov. 4 inclusive archery season for deer, but only about 100 for the Sept. 10 to 12 season for antelope.

Stan Leonard Finally Gets Western Title DETROIT. Mich. fAP) - Stan Leonard has been r>layinR so badly that he almost canceled his entry in the Western Open. When he showed up, he said that "the last thing in my mind In winning." But Leonard won. nevertheless: and won over golf's hottest player and one of the game's most successful blue-chip performers. The balding Canadian, 45, who had to wait until he was 40 before he could affon. to Join the professional tour, defeated Art Wall Jr. on the first extra hole of a sudden death phyoff Sunday. I^eonard won it with a six-foot birdie putt after Wall had just missed an eight-footer. They tied at 10-under-par 278 after 72 holes. II took a sensational stretch run by Leonard and a stunning slump by Wall to force the playoff. Wall, former Masters champion, had not been over par in his last 10 rounds. His 204 total after 54 holes^helped out by a record-breaking 66 in the second round—gave him a four-stroke lead. Leonard was tier! with five others, six shots back. Leonard started rolling in birdie putts, and Wall kept slipping. Lee. iard caught him at 15 with a birdie, but Wall went one-up at 16 with his only birdie of the day. Wall lost it on the 18th, his six- foot putt rimming the cup for a bogie-five after he had been in a trap with his second shot. "I was watching—and dying," said Leonard. > Wall finished with 74, 2 over par at Western Golf and Country Club's 6,800-yard layout. Leonard, who got in only nine holes of practice here before the $25,000 tournament began, closed with' 68. Leonard's $5,000 triumph was his first on the U.S. circuit since April. 1958, when he won the Las Vegas Tournament of Champions. Wall collected J2.500 for second. Whitney Horses And Success Go Hand in Hand INGLEWOOD, CaHf. (AP) - A horse trainer who was hired, sight-unseen, by long distance telephone and now has won three $100,000 added races... A hitherto obscure jockey who has yet to meet the boss... That is the unusual story of the famous racing stable of Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney. The trainer is easy-mannered, horse-smart W. L. (Bob) Wheeler. The jockey is 29-year-old Eddie Burns, erstwhile king of the small tracks — bullrings, they call 'em in the more cosmopolitan circles. In less than two years, Wheeler has trained and saddled three Whitney horses into the hundred- grand winning set—Silver Spoon in the Santa Anita Derby in 1959, Tompion in the same derby this year, and,two days ago, Dotted Swiss in the $162,000 Hollywood Gold Cup Handicap. The rider was Burns, whose only experience in a $100,000 race was dead last on Civic Pride in the Santa Anita Handicap this year. "No I've never met Mr. Whitney." Burns disclosed. "But I understand he is a fine man." Whitney and Wheeler had never met when the Eastern socialite decided to change trainers about two years ago. Obviously Whitney had heard of Wheeler, however, and finally reached him by telephone. The job was offered and accepted.
