Ford whiffed 17 batters in eight-and-one-third innings before giving way to Richard Stone with one out in the ninth. He was aided by an eight-hit dermantown attack off three Creagerstown pitchers. Germantown scored two runs in the fourth inning, then broke the game open in the sixth with a tour run barrage. A single by Tommy East brought in two of the runs in the decisive sixth inning. Three hits, a hit batsman and an error i brought in the four runs. i Earl Ricketts, Grayson Rams-, burg and Bob Ricketts led '.he Germantown attack. Karl Ricketts managed two I hits. Bob Ricketts numbered j a triple among his two blows; and Ramsburg rapped a double. Creagerstown scored its first i run in the sixth inning, then started a late rally in the ninth ' off Ford. Ford walked t h r e e ; men, and gave up a single before giving way to Stone. The run came across when Ford j walked Ken Snoots. I Stone then came in to strike-! out the last two batters on soc i pitches. i Bob Shafer started for Crea-! gerstown and absorbed the loss.

According to an article released Sunday by the Asso» ciated Press, professional football has supplanted major league baseball as the national sport in the opinion of the majority of sports editors polled by the news service. The editors were asked to estimate what percentage of their readership followed certain sports. Final totals estimated 78 per cent following professional football, 77 per cent college football and 75 per cent major league baseball. ¥ * * BUT THE LARGEST gain made by any sport over the eight vear period from 19.59 to 1967 was in automobile racing. In 1959 26 per cent of those reading n e w s p a p e r sports pages seemed · · . he- interested in a«'-. · ·· :.-· This vear 54 per i · readers were foii.' 1 .- .. dianapclis racine Stockcar rarir.;: o n d with a n esti;.-. : · : cent following '·--. i : . . . the sports tvpt- · ; · - · · ! .;. percent ! ; ; , n \ ..-p lu 1 v , r , t i i i ! P n \ c i r c u i t s and .M p-.v , en' interested in road r r i v j i n g and a u t o - cross ACCORDING TO THK .MI: - vey 18 pen cenl of thus* reading sports pages w e i e following drag racing. This is indeed a tribute to the rapid growth of dragging as a spectator sport In fact, in 1959 when a survey such as this w a s la.,! taken, drag racing was jus! coming of age on the West Coast of the U.S. The point to be made is ·hat in just eight years drag racing has picked up enough of a following to score far above such traditional sports as professional basketball, amateur golf, boxing and tennis in American sports- fan appeal. * * · YET IT MUST be kept in mind that drag racing is really a participant sport as opposed to a spectator sport. Thousands may drool in front of a television watching a close Grand Prix race, yet only a precious few can ever hope to participate in this exotic sport. However a large proportion of those first exposed to drag racing as spectators end up actually participating in the sport actively. Drag racing is one sport that anyone can get into and start competing on a fair basis. What makes the results of the survey even more impressive is that the imforrn- ation for the totals was provided by newspaper sports editors, many of whom don't publish drag racing news on their own pages. Yet the sport attained a very significant overall rating from the editors. * » * THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Managing Editor's Association made this year's survey under the direction of Cruise Palmer, managing editor of the Kansas City Star and Times, who is vice chairman of the general news committee of APME. The 1959 survey was led by William B. Dickerson, managing editor of the Philadelphia Bulletin. * * * A LITTLE EXPLANATION concerning last week's discussion of funny cars would seem to be in order. We alwavs considered f u n - ny cars to be a general term for several different varieties of exotic machinery. Last week we classed the wheelstandJng show cars in the same general category as the match racing funny cars. It was pointed out to ns several times last week that true funny cars are only the super-powered, ultra-light match racers that we described in detail Ijst week, and that the wheel-slanders are purely show cars. * * * WE CAN GO along with this distinction so from now on the super bombs such as the Stone Woods and Took Mustang, and Charlie Bongo's long Corvette will he referred to as funnv cars. The wild wheel.standers of Bill Shrewsberry, Jim Rari- laro, and a host of othors w i l l be referred to as exhibition cars. Thank you for your comments and a point well taken. * * # PITS, CAFES AND any other place that drag racers hang out are h u / ' i n g with conversation about the now smog control devices which will show up on the 1968 cars. One interesting character dutilully informed us last week that he heard all the new cars will have a "smog bucket" next to the engine, and that it would be necessary to empty the smog from the bucket at the end of each day's driving. Let me dispel this line of t h i n k i n g right now. All of the d i f f e r e n t devices have the same basic purpose. To return by - products, and u n b u r n e d p r o d u c t s back into the engine so that they can be f u r t h e r consumed.
