By VERNON BUTLER Associate 0 Pre^s Sptr^s Writer One of the strongest clubs in the Southern Association in April and May, thn Little Rock Travelers—now in the midst of a June swoon— found themselves in the second division today only five games removed from the cellar. Light biting and a loose defense have combined to put the Travs on the skids. Little Rock pitching ranked fourth in the league in the. latest averages, but the defense was the worst and only two clubs had lower baiting averages. Mobile rallied for three runs in the seventh inning last night to whip the Travelers 4-2 and hand them their 15th defeat in the last 19 games. Birmingham and Chattanooga remained in a deadlock for the league lead after splitting a cloubleheadcr. Chatta- noga won the opener 6-1 on John Bozcr's two-hitter, but the Barons stormed back behind lefty Doug Gallagher's three - hitter for an 8-0 verdict in the second game. Shrevoport scored four runs in the eighth and topped Atlanta 4-3. Nashville and Macon were rained out. Birmingham Chattanuogo Atlanta Nashville Little Rock Shrevcport Mobile can League pennant. The White Sox, who only June llth were in 10th and last place, Wednesday night moved lo within striking distance of first place with a homer-crammed, 15-3, lt-1 twin victory over the Cleveland Indians. The Hose ran their winning ways to six in a row and 13 decisions in 14 starts after Chicago area fans had been treated to four major league games in a single day. Earlier, the Cubs dropped an aftcrnon cloubleheadcr to Los Angeles' Dodgers, 4-1 and 4-2 before 12,365 paid at Wriglcy Field. The Sox sweep over the Indians was watched by a sellout Comiskcy Park crowd of 45,125, including 37,558 paid and 7.5B7 Combined Jewish Appeal guests. When their current streak began, the White So.x were in 10th place, 15M: games off the pace. They have moved up to within to games of the first-place Detroit Tigers and arc only one game out of fourth place. This is no surprise to cither General Manager Hank Grccn- bcrg or field Manager Al Lopez. Said Greenbcrg: "This is just the law of averages asserting it- oo 10 <«» t-ir i sclf ' Wc wcrc like a - 300 llilltn ' 23 <U .408 Uk j batting .200. You know such a hitter is going to get back up lo .300 —and in the process, he'll be batting .400 over a good stretch That's just what we're doing now." Said Lopez: "There were a lot of people souring on us early when we were floundering. I never gave up. because I knew we were ' a good ball club. I'm not worried about making the first division now If we can keep going, we'll still make a helluva run for first place." \V. L. Pet.

Dallas-Fort Worth NO NEW TAXES for the $60,000,000 Arkansas Building Program! The building bonds will be paid from our state's general revenue fund. Current taxes are building this fund higher each year. No new taxes will be needed to meet the payments on the bonds to be purchased over a four-year period. In addition, a tightening of the "use tax" will bring in more money along with money from the extended racing season. In other words, we N can meet the immediate and- urgent building needs of our State Hospital, Children's Colony/Blind and Deaf Schools, McRae Tuberculosi c5anitorium, and our University and Statr /alleges—without a cent of extra taxes! This program will launch Arkansas into a new era of progress! School Teachers' Salaries Are Protected In This Program... In the last session of the Legislature, Act 505 of 1961 was inacted into law and states specifically, "no funds now or hereafter belonging to the Public School Fund shall ever be ' used, either directly or indirectly, for the payment of any bonds issued under the provisions of the State Institutional Buildings Bond Act of 1961." Our Mentally Sick, Our Retarded Children, Our Blind and Deaf Students, Our College Youth Need This Program You and I as citizens of Arkansas have failed to give state colleges any money for building new classrooms in the last 20 years. The "patch-quilt" financing they have used has come from student fees, lunch programs, bookstore sales, and snack bar sales. This is a very poor plan of building for the youth of Arkansas and is completely inadequate. The time has come to meet these needs head-on and take the proper care of our college youth. How can we train future Arkansas teachers and other leaders in our colleges if we don't have the necessary room or proper facilities ? Everyone realizes the undisputed need for modernizing our State Hospital and the Deaf School, and for expansion of the Children's Colony and tjie McRae Tuberculosis Sanitorium. Now is the time for action. These immediate and urgent needs of our colleges and institutions must be met—NOW!
