End 40 Years of Frustration- White Sox Win American League Flag; Beat Tribe, 4-2 By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer The White Sox did it. They did it like champs, clinching that long-awaited American League pennant in their final meeting with the one club that could snnlch it from them. They did it with a 4-2 victory over the second-place Indians at POWER UP i Cleveland Tuesday night, hauling : in Chicago's first AL flag since '• liH9. They did it not with their magic singles, but with power— a pair of scoring doubles by Luis I Aparicio and Billy Goodman, and successive sixth-inning home runs i by Al Smith and Jim Rivera. I Cast Off Pitchers They did it with pitching and defense. Early Wynn. the old man the Injuns didn'* want, won his 21st. getting relief help from \mine Bob Shaw, the right-hander Detroit didn't want, and Gerry with...

Staley, like Wynn a 39-year-old right-hander, wrapped it up, making his 65th trip from the bullpen this season in the ninth inning with one out and the bases loaded. With one pitch it was all over. Doable Play Vic Power swung at that first pitch of Staley's, Aparicio gobbled it up at short, stepped on second and threw to first for the Sox' fourth doubleplay, the doubleplay that ended 40 years of waiting. The victory gave the White Sox a 4lit-game lead over the Indians, who have but four games to play. The Sox have three left—before playing the opening game of the World Series In Chicago's Comiskey Park a week from today. Climax Drive The White Sox, who had lost two in a row as their pennant push sputtered, whipped the Indians 15-7 for the season. This one climaxed a drive that began with a four-game sweep at Cleve- Timas Herald, Carroll, la «*} Wednesday, Sept. 23, 1959 £ land in late August They won nine of the 11 games they played at the Indians' park. In the other AL games, New York whipped Washington 84. Detroit beat Kansas City 6 -1 and Boston defeated Baltimore 4 -3. Philadelphia swept a twi-night pair from Cincinnati, 3 -1 and 3-2, in i the other NL action. I The go-go While Sox returned to find their city really gone in*the wee hours this morning over Chicago's first American Leuguc pen; nant in 40 years. I Some 15,000 fans waited from i before midnight to past 2 a. m. ai the airport for the victorious Sox' return from Cleveland. Long before that, sirens had blasted out the news that the White Sox were in the World Series. Tears of joy glistened in the , eyes of both club Vice President Al Lopez as the big four-engine plane wheeled into the arclighted setting at the airport. Hilarious Greeting While the Chicago fire department band played and the thousands cheered, the players poured out of the plane to a hilarious greeting. It was almost 4'« hours after the White Sox had won their thrilling pennant-clincher from the Indians, 4 -2, in Cleveland. The loudest cheers went te Luis Aparicio, the phenomenal little shortstop, who started a game- ending double play; Al Smith, who made a great run-killing throw and hit a homer; and veteran Early Wynn, who got credit for the big win. Who would start in the World Series for the Sox? 'Ton can make a good guess," Lopez told sports writers on the victory plane. He winked knowingly when they suggested Wynn or Bob Shaw, his two mound stalwarts all season. Dodgers and Giants Falter- Milwaukee Takes Over First MARVIN'S SINCLAIR SERVICE 1 Blk. East of Burke Motor Inn By ED WILKS Associated Press Sorts Writer Remember the last time the National League had a three- team fight for the flag? It was 1956 and in the final week fourth- place St. Louis crashed Milwaukee out of it while the Dodgers stepped o\er seventh-place Pittsburgh to the pennant. Cincinnati was the third club in on that down-to-the-wire race, finally given the gate by the Chicago Cubs to finish third, two games shy. The Braves have breezed to two flags since then, and now, driving for a rare third in a row, they've surged into a one-game lead, beat­ ing fourth-place Pittsburgh 5-3 Tuesday night while seventh-place St. Louis jarred the Dodgers out oi a first-place tie by battering Los Angeles 11-10. In keeping with that pennant pattern ,pf three years ago, third- place San Francisco plunged two games behind with a 5-4 loss to the Cubs. Four Games Left Each of the contenders has four games left. All finish the current series today. Then the Braves go home for a three-game weekend series with last-place Philadelphia while the Dodgers shift to Chicago and the Giants switch to St. Louis in the final run to decide who plays the Chicago White Sox j in the World Series a week from i today. Milwaukee's late surge to become the first three-in -a -row NL winner since the Cardinals of 1942-43-44 now has given the Braves a four-game streak and 13 victories in their last IS games. To do it, they had to stand off a ninth-inning Pirate rally for the second night in a row. Lefty Juan Pizarro (6-2) beat the Bucs a third time after building a 4-1 cushion with a two-out, two-run double as the Braves scored three in the seventh off Harvey Haddix (12-12).

BRADLEY, MAN AO IR nailed it, giving up a pair of scoring singles by Smoky Burgess and Don Hoak before striking out pinch-hitter Rocky Nelson for the final out. Andy Pafko doubled and John Demerit, replacing injured Bill Kruton in center field, beat out a bunt single for the Braves in the clinching seventh. Then, after Del Crandall, who had hit his 21st homer in the fifth, hit into a doubleplay and Felix Mantilla got an intentional pass, Pizarro sliced his double just inside the left field line. Bobby Aviia, who tripled in the first and scored on Hank Aaron's fly, then singled in the final run off Haddix. Milwaukee took more than a percentage-point lead for the first time since June 30 as the Cardinals went to work on the Dodgers. I.os Angles, making it close on rookie Frank Howard's pinch-hit, three-run homer in the ninth, chased nemesis Larry Jackson in the first inning, but blew 3-0 and 6-4 leads. Koufax Bombed Hal Smith bombed starting Dodger southpaw Sandy Koufax with his first grand-slam homer in the first inning. After Gil Hodges' two-run, 24th homer gave the Dodgers the 6-4 edge in the third, •he Cards came back with five runs in their half of the third. Curt Flood's three-run homer set it off against losing reliever Chuck Churn (3-2). Joe Cunningham singled in the tying run in the frame and a double by ex- Dodger Gino Cimoli scored the lead run. The Cardinals won it with two runs in the fifth, getting the clincher on an error by Carl Furillo on Cimoli's RBI single. The Giants dropped their fourth in a row on a two-run, two-out homer by rookie George Altman in the ninth. It came off Sad Sam Jones, working in relief and tagged with his 15th defeat, third in a row since winning his 20th. Don Elston (9-8> was the winner in relief, coming on in a two-run eighth when the Giants, who left nine man on base, scored twice for their only lead, 4-3. The Cubs took fifth place with the victory as Cincinnati fell to sixth with a twi-night doubleheader loss at Philadelphia, 3-1 amd 3-2. In the other AI. games, Now \ork beat Washington 8-4. De, iroit defeated Kansas City 6-4 and I Boston beat Baltimore 4-3.

Stolen Sign Lets Rookie Clout Homer By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (API—A stolen sign by a veteran and a two-out ninth inning homer by a rookie. That's the story that will haunt the San Francisco Giants this winter. The Giants were all but eliminated from the National League pennant race Tuesday when George Altman crashed a two- run homer to give the Chicago Cubs a 5-4 triumph over the once hopeful Giants. Altman was at the plate with an 0-1 count on him when Alvin Dark, who had led off with a double, intercepted the Giant catcher's signal and flashed the fast ball sign to Altman. Sam Jones delivered. It was fast, and Altman swung. The ball traveled high and far into the center field bleachers and with it went San Francisco's pennant hopes. Jones made a gesture of throwing his glove at Altman as the Cub outfielder rounded first but the Giant pitcher thought better, walked off the field slowly and gave first base a swift kick. The Giants retain a mathematical chance for the flag but they not only have to win their remaining four games, they also must hope for the complete collap .se of both Milwaukee and Los Angeles. FBI Arrests Five in Boxing Racket Probe LOS ANGELES (AP>— Five men seized in a nation-wide FBI round-up are accused of trying to grab control of world welterweight champion Don Jordan. A federal grand jury investigating underworld influence in boxing indicted them Tuesday in Los Angeles. They were arrested within a few hours in Los Angeles, Chicago. Philadelphia and Baltimore. The indictments charged conspiracy to extort money from Jordan's manager, Don Nesseth of Covina, Calif., and Jackie Leonard, former Hollywood Legion Stadium boxing promoter. Under arrest are: Paul John Carbo, known as Frankie Carbo. 55. of New York City. He is under indictment in New York for undercover management of fighters. Frank < Blinky) Palermo, 54, Philadelphia boxing manager. Truman Gibson Jr.. 47, Chicago attorney, president of National Boxing Enterprises Inc.. and former president of the International Boxing Club. Joseph Sica. 48, Los Angeles, who has a record of arrests going back to 1928. Louis Tom Dragna, 39, West Covina. Calif., manager of a clothing store and "described as having been involved in bookmaking. The indictment alleged that Palermo extorted $1,725 from Leonard through threats of harming him and Nesseth. Leonard had no interest in Jordan's management but said Palermo and Carbo made him an unwilling go-between in their purported effort to muscle in on Nesseth's contract with Jordan. Leonard and Nesseth testified before a California Athletic Com­ mission hearing last May and before the grand jury. The indictment contains 10 counts under the anti-racketeering act and the federal extortion statutes. The laws carry penalties up to 20 years imprisonment and $10,000 fine for each offense.
