.'8 JElfr Hailfiiinit Tuesday, July 3. 195<i Murray-Go-Round By TOM MURRAY Hammer Tigers, 7-0 Yankees Jump Into Teen Lead Traylor Calls Marcontel, "Great" BAYLOR not only picked one of the state's finest guards, hence one of its most underrated, in Baytown's Cleo Proctor, but a determined workhorse as well. Early last week the 200-pound rock-'em-soek-'em Proctor was barrellin' up and down the Gander practice field in a broilin' hot sun. He's gonna make a fine him!: of grid machinery before departing Baylor's rustic campus. Dovle Traylor isn't shy when describing Cedar Bayou's Jerry Marcontel. "He's gonna' be a great football player," the bullet-passing blond exclaimed. "He's big, he can move . . . he's just a fine foot- bail player!" Now they're putting the Dave Sime injury blame precisely where it belongs . . . at the feet of his bewildered and inexperienced coach. Why biame the boy's mentor for an injury? Every track coach, even in hot-water leagues, knows the Olympic 200 meters is run around a curve. Yet Sime's Duke tutor repeatedly sent his redhead after 220-yard world records, down the straightaway. Sime had never competed in track until arriving at Duke and then had to be talked into competing. The kid wa.s as out of place running the curve as Reel Riding Hood in a hot-rod race. Seven times in the last month Sime shot for a 220 -record, seven times he shunned the curve. By his own admission, it was the Duke star's heartbreak over losing the 100-meter NCAA spectacular to Abilene Christian's jet-propelled Bobby Morrow which caused him to pull a leg muscle. So determined was he to beat Morrow in the 200 a little later, the New Jersey lad strained everything in his body on that Edwards Stadium curve. Like the usher was saying. "He shouldn't oughter done it!" Brooks, Braves To Tour Texas? RUMOR from the East has the Brooklyn Dodgers and Milwaukee Braves making a barnstorming tour through Texas next spring . . . perhaps the Boston Braves, too.

It's nobody but the Bayshore Motor Yankees, loser in seven of eight first-half contests;, who opened the second-half with a resounding 7-0 thrashing of strong Hollaway Tigers al Oiler Park .Monday night. And they did it the difficult wny. boating James Lansford, ono of the entire organization's premier hurl- ers, tagging the. crafty little right- hander for nine solid hits. While Bayhore bats were awakening and the Hollaway defense was collapsing, Tom Rushing fired a sparkling one-hitter to sub- duo Tiger power and collar his shutout. In the second game, Cal Hartrick's Klks Dodgers repented their opening night performance, stopping ,).

Tuesday First-half Senior League Champion Culpeppcr Indians meet Bob Knlbitz' third-place Scarborough Red Sox in the second game of a double-bill. Cab Galloway's First-half Junior League Champion Lion Cvibs meet the Kiwnnis Braves in the 6 p.m. opener. Quite naturally the second-half standings will be knotted following Tuesday's play with two teams in each loop knotted for first and last. With ::11 due respect to |,«ns- foril, who was not having one of his tatter nights, the entire Kiiilt for the Tiffcr loss is not heaped upon his sturdy little shoulders. His defense leaked for six glaring errors, including three dropped fly-balls, only one of the seven Yank runs of the earned variety. But that is all Rushing needed the way he was firing. The well-built right-hander not only choked off the Tiger attack with one safety but led Yank hitters with two hits in three trips, and scored a run. Joe Esquivel singled into right for the lone Tiger hit in the fourth. The Dodgers CHUM; from a, 4-3 deficit in the fifth with five hi* runs on four base-hits to wrap up the Giant game. Chuck Saunders wa.s the loser. Center-fielder Doug Bell and Catcher Chuck Franklin had two for four to pace Dodger hitting. Jerry Walters, who played three defensive positions, collected two- for-three to pace the Giants. Frank Nichols had two [or four. Kl'ippstein Hot. .. Redlegs Looking Tough In Lead OOPS! player. Arnette compete in the North-South High School All-Star ba.sketbail game at Lubboek in August. Don't look now but Fort Worth's Lorin McMullen claims the National League Ail-Star ballot was stuffed when those five Cincinnati Redlegs were named to the team facing the American. Leaguers Wednesday. The Star-Telegram sports editor says a marked ballot was run in a Cincy newspaper with fans clipping and mailing thousands. The poll had been regulated by thf Chicago Tribune under the guidance of the late Arch Ward. With Ward's death the Windy City paper refused to count the votes. At IS years and six months UT.'s Eddie Southern is the baby of Uncle Sam's 1956 Olympic team but could bring back a gold medal from Australia. His one-yard defeat to Glenn Davis. Ohio State's great world-record holding 400-meter hurdler, proves it. Had Southern not chopped his stride at the last hurdle, the former Dallas schoolboy sensation would've won. "I had already resigned myself to a second-place finish. Eddie was setting such a torrid pace." said Davis shortly after his victory. "But when he clipped his stride on the last hurdle it let me catch up and I came on in to win.'' The handsome Southern admitted his terrific pace had tired him perceptibly at the finish. But. not without reason, he claimed to be the happiest loser in the Los Angeles Coliseum. His 49.7 also broke the world record. By CAKL Li'NnqUlST United I'ress Sports Writer Cincinnati's muscle-men looked more menacing than ever today from their first place perch in the National League race because risht-handeii pitching star Johnny Kfippstein apparently is back on the beam. There is a gnawing fear among National League managers that if the Redlegs acquire just a little more pitching they can suddenly turn the wild pennant scramble into a cake-walk. With Kiippstein clicking thai could be the difference. Monday night in a showdown rattle with Milwaukee for first place. Cincinnati's sluggers for the most part were silenced.
