Giant Lead Cut to One* Braves Beat Dodgers IIIIIIIMIMIIIMIIIIMUMMMimHIIIIIIHK By JOE REICHLER Ansoelated Press Sports Writer If the Milwaukee Braves wanted to ask "who's choking up?" you couldn't blame them. Remember threo years ago when the Brave? were accused of choking up after they had blown a four-came lead to the Dodgers in the final three weeks? WeU. things have a way of reversing themselves. A vital 4-1 victory over the Dodgers Monday mcht not only boosti'd the Braves into undisputed possession of second place, one came behind the league-leading San Francisco Giants, but gave them their eighth victory in the last nine games. During the same prrrod, both the Giants and Dodgers, now in third place, two games off the pace, have played barely over .500 ball, winning five while losing four. Reds Stun Giants Cincinnati's Reds inflicted a stunning 4-1 defeat upon the Time* Herald, Carroll, la. ^% Tuesday, Sept. 15, 1959 j£ We'll Help You Own Your Home Giants in the only other league game played. Each of the top three contenders have 11 games remaining. The Braves will have a golden opportunity this weekend when they meet the last place Phillies while the Giants and Dodgers are battling each other. It took a tremendous pitching performance by Don McMahon to preserve Milwaukee's victory. Bob Buhl, a long-time Dodger nemesis, appeared about to cement his 13th victory, fifth against Los Angeles this season, as he entered the last of the ninth, leading 4-1. He had allowed the Dodgers only one hit—a home run by Wally Moon. Then, just like that, the Dodgers loaded the bases with nobody out on a walk and two infield singles. Stranded Three That was the signal for manager Fred Haney to summon Mc­ Mahon from the bullpen. The big strong right-hander was superb. He retired Norm Larker OIT a soft liner to second baseman I elix Mantilla, then threw third strikes past Gil Hodges and Johnny Roseboro. The Coliseum crowd of 53,767 could hardly believe it. Jim Brosnan, a last minute pitching choice, and Dutch Dotterer, an early inning substitute catcher, combined to give the Reds their 4-1 victory over the Giants. Brosnan, usually a reliever, started only because Jim O'Toole, who was scheduled to pitch, turned up ailing. He gave up only five hits and a run in seven innings. Dotterer, who entered the game in the second when starter Ed Bailey was tossed out for arguing over a decision, drove in two runs with a pair of singles. Johnny Temple drove in the first run with a home run and Whitey Lockman batted in the last one with a double. Willie Mays, with i his 30th homer, accounted for the lone Giant run. from dale barton's KEYBOARD II Joe Gordon Won't Concede- FHA Loans Conventional Loans Let Us Solve Your Home Financing Problems For Building — Buying or Refinancing UNITED Savings & Loan Association N. J. CALDWELL 507V2 N. Main Phone 9325 Cyclones Ask Ban on Former Ames Gridder AMES (AP)—Gordon Chalmers, Iowa State athletic director, says he has asked other Big Eight officials not to allow former Cyclone footballer Chuck Lamson to compete in athletics at their schools. "We've got to protect our program,'' Chalmers said Monday night. "We're doing what we have to do. We're fighting to get a good football team, and wc feel it's our obligation to Iowa State to do everything we can to protect the team." Defensive Star Lamson, a letterman as a sophomore in 1958 and considered the top defensive player on the Iowa State squad, quit the team a few days before practice started this fall. Monday he reportedly was en route to Oklahoma, where he hoped to play football for Coach Bud Wilkinson. Wilkinson was quoted Monday night as saying "all the schools in the Big Eight have agreed that the boy will not be allowed to play. If he comes here he will not be allowed to compete in intercollegiate athletics." Chalmers said he has no objec- tino to Lamson transferring outside the Big Eight.

I Lamson, the son of Bob Lamson of the Iowa State basketball coaching stuff, was married in Des Moines Saturday night to Madeline Wolfe of Marshalltown. Lamson would have two years of varsity competition remaining after he put in a year's residence at another school to become eligible. He gave no reason for quitting the Iowa State team. SWEET CORN QUEEN VINTON (AP) — Marcia Ann Buch, 17, of Keystone, was crowned queen of Sweet Corn Day here Monday. More than 30,000 persons at the celebration ate between 35 and 40 tons of buttered sweet corn. ALL STAR TEAMS: The Iowa Daily Press Association again has mapped elaborate plans for all-state football and basketball teams for boys and an all state basketball team for girls. Sports editors from mem b e r IDPA papers, meeting in Des Moines last weekend, approved a release of Nov. 20 for the football team. Mar. 18 for girls basketball and Mar. 25 for boys basketball. Coaches and officials in this area are hereby reminded to expect re- cept of nomination blanks on football on or about Oct. 28. Girls basketball ballots will be in the hands of coaches and officials about Feb. 26 and boys basketball ballots will go out on Mar. 1. The IDPA, with member newspapers throughout the state, makes a determined effort to blanket the state with all star recognition. Players who receive the coveted certificates arc chosen on the basis of votes. Again we remind coaches and officials in this area to be on the lookout for top notch players. Year after year we fight a losing battle in this part of the state because not enough coaches or officials vote for our top notch players. In essence it comes down to a misguided belief on the part of many voters that the athletes they see in this area might not measure up to the caliber of athletes from some other part of the state. That is the wrong approach to the problem. The IDPA has eight member committees for each of these sports. After the ballots have been returned by coaches and officials, and tabulated by member newpa- pers, they are forwarded to the committee. The final decision is made by committee members who represent each area in the state. The important thing is to keep this area's top players in mind as the season progresses and to vote for these players when the ballots are mailed out. The more votes we record for an individual, the higher we can place said individual on the all star roster. For those who are not chosen on one of the all state teams, and receive an engraved certificate, there will be a long honorable mention roster and those players will receive bill-fold size cards that will certify that selection. * * * CONFERENCE MEETINGS: Officials of the Midwest Conference congregated in Harlan last weekend and officially recognized »* 1111 1 1 ****** 1111 n 1111111 n 111111 ****** 11 »••• Tribe Cuts Sox Lead By JOE REICHLER i "I'm not ready to concede.

Imagine a truck ride that virtually eliminates shimmy and wheel fight, cuts side sway on curves, makes steering far steadier and easier, keeps drivers far fresher. Imagine a truck ride that permits higher safe cruising speeds, more trips per day with all kinds of cargo over every type of road surface. Imagine a ride that keeps up to 78% of all objectionable road shock and vibration from ever reaching the driver and cargo, a design that sharply reduces twisting and fatigue forces on chassis, cabs and bodies, that keeps trucks young for extra thousands of miles, j Soon you won't have to just imagine such a ride. You can try it for yourself in the trucks that do the next best thing to paving every road in America—new Chevrolet trucks for 1960. You'll see what happens when Chevy's truck engineers design a whole new line of trucks around a whole new kind of torsion-spring suspension. These trucks are new from the ride on up—with wonderfully roomier cabs, brawnier frames, style that's fresh as sixty and more! Don't decide on any new truck till you see the newest of all.

"Wilkens has made the most difficult switch imaginable in moving from a ball-carrying role to a guard position, but he has performed brilliantly in his new assignment," McClellan said. "Macke and Brian Williams are about neck-and-neck in the quarterback spot. The Des Moines boy passes a little better, but there are other things that Macke does much better," he said. en against Kansas City and two against Boston.

"I haven't walked so much in return for a 1960 draft choice, years," Lopez ruefully announced. He paraded to the mound three times in the sixth inning as Boston chipped away at four Chicago hurlers for six runs Three more came in the following inning on rookie Jim Mahoney's first major league homer, his second major league hit. The White Sox, off their usual form, also committed two errors. Lopez, however, said that wasn't the trouble. "You can't blame it on defense when a guy like Mahoney hits a homer," he said, Mahoney entered the game hitting .056. "Our relief pitching was the worst it's been in any one game this year," Lopez explained. EXPECTING?
