FRIDAY, JUixiE 14, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THIRTEEN Vander Meer Still Recalls No-Hitters By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer In the 25 years since June 15, 1938, Johnny Vander Meer has told the story of his two nc-hitters so often that he can start at midnight and name batter, count and umpire. The memories still are green although the Dutchman Is 46 with a lew extra pounds around the middle and a little gray seeding on the top. Spencer Tracy was playing "Boys Town," Lawrin had just won the Derby and Doug Corrigan was preparing to fly to Dublin— the wrong way — when Vander Meer came to Broadway from Cincinnati with one no-hitter already in his pocket. John had blanked the Boston Braves, then managed by Casey Stengel, 3-0 on Saturday afternoon, June 11 in Cincinnati. Now it was Wednesday night the 15th and Larry MacPhail was Introducing night baseball at Ebbets Field, little knowing that Vander Meer would put the icing on tile cake with his second no- hitter. Located by telephone the other midnight at a Key West, Fla., motel, he willingly recalled his night of fame. "I was quick that night," the heavy voice said over some 1,600 miles of cables. "Lorn (catcher Ernie Lombard!) calltxl only four or five curve balls the first seven innings. Then we switched to the curve. "The ninth? I'll never forget it. I got the first man out (Buddy Hassett). Then I walked the bases full. The next man hit to Lew Riggs at third base and lie went to the plate. Loin held the ball for the force out. "Then Durocher was up. I got two strikes and a ball. I had him struck out on the next pitch but Bill Stewart called it a ball. The next pitch he popped up to short center and Harry Craft caught it. "The first guy out to the mound was Stewart. 'If you didn't get that, I blew it for you,' he told me. I didn't even know it was a record for organized ball." Did Vander Meer have any special plans for celebrating his 25th anniversary? "Twenty five years ago when the game was over in Brooklyn I went fishing, over in Jersey, my old home state," said Johnny. "This Saturday morning at 4 o'clock I have an appointment to go bass fishing." BOWLING BOWL HAVEN Thursday Mixed Holt 174-180-184 (538), Koppenhauer 211, Laws 194, Leady 190, Beckman 1,91-167.

Mays 9 Smash Plunges Cubs To 5th Place CHICAGO (AP) - An extra- inning 390-foot smash by Willie Mays defeated the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Thursday night, plunging them nto fifth place. Meanwhile, the idle White Sox eased into the American League ead by virtue of a 5-4 Baltimore Oriole victory over the New York Yankees. The Cubs' Dick Ellsworth limited the San Francisco Giants to lust three hits going into the 10th .nning at Candlestick Park. But Mays, who earlier cut off a Cub ht-eat with a great fielding play, smashed a 1-1 pitch over the left- center field fence. The other Giant run cnme on a seventh inning home run by Felipe AIou. Ellsworth drove in the Cubs' only run with a single in the fifth nning. The Cubs threatened again n the sixth, but veteran Billy O'Dell thereafter dispatched the ast 13 batters to face him.

MIDWEST LEAGUE By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Decatur 3-1, Waterloo 1-7 Fox Cities 4-0, Burlington 2-1 Dubuque 5-4, Wisconsin Rapids 4-5 Los Angeles 7, Quad Cities I (exhibition) HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) — Arnold Palmer has it going again, and that is unsettling news for the men who scramble for purses on professional golf's golden highway. 'It wasn't work like it hat been recently — it was fun again for a change," the perfectly relaxed three-time Masters champion beamed after posting a 3-under- par 67 Thursday for a share of the first round lead in the $100,000 Thunderbird Classic. Tied with Palmer going into today's second round was an awed, 24-year-old rookie pro from Waterloo, Iowa, Jack Rule. Arnold had two-stroke cushion over his principal rivals, Jack Nicklaus and ary Player. Nicklaus, his putting touch cold, and Player, favored by a lucky ruling, were bunched with a dozen at 69. Ben Hogan, making a tournament comeback at the age of 50, was close with 71. m * ,,.nrt j Craduate 8 In. Personal TV A fine "small" TV __ _ with performance 11^1 features of large I ••• sets.

Palmer looked like the king again as he cowed the course with his typically powerful drives and solved the spacious greens with confident putting. The 33-year-old Palmer missed only one fairway the 18th — and one-putted eight greens, sinking the difficult seven and eightrfoot- ers as if they were kick-ins. Playing in beautiful, sunny weather before a gallery of more than 10,000, nineteen players in the 138-man field broke par and eight others, including Sam Snead and Dow Finsterwald, equalled it. One shot back of Palmer and Rule were Bill Eggers of Henderson, Nev., Bob Duden of Portland, Ore., and Gay Brewer, Jr., of Dallas, all with 34-34—68.

As the results indicate, Plymouth pretty much had its own way- winning every acceleration test, the handling test, both passing-safety tests and the gas economy test.

And it ought to heighten your enthusiasm to learn that the "performance champ" has a 5-year/ 50,000-mile warranty* to back it up. It's some automobile.

Maybe your old banger is shearing pins. Mercs have no shear pins. They have a live-rubber safety clutch instead. Maybe you can't troll with your old motor because it idles badly and fouls plugs. Fishing Mercs have tilted pow- erheads that eliminate fuel "puddling" and fixed-jet carburetors that keep the mixture right. There are lots of good reasons why you should have a new Merc. They start easy. They go through weeds and shallows without heating up. They have full gearshift. If you don't have an outboard ... all the more reason to buy a new Merc. It will take you off the dock and back where the fish are hiding. VISIT YOUR MERCURY DEALER. There's a good chance that you'll get a new Merc 60 ... 6 hp, Merc 110 ... 9.8 hp, or a new Merc 200 ... 20 hp.
