This boosted Brooklyn's lead over the idle St. Louis Cardinals to 34 games. The encounter was a scoreless standoff between rookies Max Macon and Hank Gornicki for the first lour frames and it was Pittsburgh which drew first blood when Gornicki singled in the fifth and came home on a triple by the ordinarily weak-hitting Pete .Coscarart, a former Dodger. Dodgers Take Lead The Dodgers tied the score in the sixth, went ahead in the seventh, were tied through an error in the ninth and eventually won through an error. With one out in the 11th Arky Vaughan scratched a single off first baseman Elbie Fletcher's glove and was forced by Augie Galan. Joe Medwick singled and Galan dashed home when Fletcher threw wild to Gornicki, covering first, on a grounder to Dolph Camilli. The game was punctuated with arguments, starting with rough riding from the dugout by the Dodgers. In the sixth inning Vince Di Maggio almost had a fight with Manager Leo Durocher because he said he heard the Brooklyn manag er call to pitcher Macon to "pitch him tight."

Concern and worry the Dodgers feel in these important days of the National league pennant fight was clearly shown yesterday when Brooklyn purchased shopworn Buck New-som. Acquisition of Newsom. coming on the deadline for eligibility in the World Series, was a desperate effort to bolster the Dodger pitch ing staff with a '-eteran accustom ed to pressure conditions. Last spring there were rumors floating around the baseball camps that Brooklyn was interested in buying Newsom after Detroit sold him to Washington. These stories were branded false by Dodger of ficials and the deal fell through un til yesterday. Newsom may help the Dodgers at that. His record of 11 victories and 19 defeats with Washington this season isn't indicative of his ability. Lack of batting support has cost the talkative right hander many wins and you can bet your last lump of sugar that Newsom will be doing his best in a Dodger uniform with a slice of World Ser ies cash in the offing. -G- Yon can deal us out of this particular foursome. Sunday on Scovill's short No. 5 hole, a foursome of Bob Tapscott, Thad Nicholson, Carl Napier-ski and Gyp Bauman all carded birdie deuces. -- Highlight game of the Decatur semi-pro baseball season is offered next Sunday afternoon when Sta-ley's and the Decatur Grays tangle at Johns Hill, starting at 2:30 o'clock. The Grays have enjoyed steady success all season and the Staley team won its 14th game of the season by licking the Decatur Merchants Sunday. -o- Here and There: Swen Wallin.

Coventry, who has returned to Mattoon as chemist-engineer with the City Water Works, writes that he is available for officiating work irt football and basketball. A total of 28.121 fans watched 60 Decatur Commie home games at Fans Field this season. Of this total. 20.811 were adult paid ad missions. This is bv far the lowest attendance since the 1937 season wnich almost ended baseball in Decatur. First home game of the Chicago Bears is Oct. 11 against the Cardinals. Other October games in Chicago are Oct. 18, New York Giants; Oct. 25, Philadelphia Eagles . . .

He Olhas given up the coaching end but ldoes considerable officiating. l -o- 0 1 One Decatur sports observer, who 0, knows his football, insists that the 0j Chicago Bears could have named their own final score in last Friday's game against the College All-Stars. He says that it could have been 50-0 as we'll as the 21-0 official count, but that George Halas, a former player under Bob Zuptfke at Illinois, wouldn't embarrass his former coach. From reports we hear and read, the fog all but ruined the annual spectacle and it was a tough night for radio announcers.

The purchase of the big right hander, who has had a colorful ca reer in the American ieague, came on the deadline for pl;,y eligibility insthe World Series and made him available to the Dodgers for the October classic as well as for the final month of the season which promises to be a dogfight with the St. Louis Cardinals. Newsom has been having an in and-out year for the Senators, win ning 11 and losing 17. One of his successes was a one-hitter agains his former teammates the Detroit Tigers, but in some of his defeats he has appeared futile.

That year he won 21 games, but last season led the American league in losses with 20 The amount of money paid for Newsom was not disclosed, but it probably was in excess of the waiver price of $7,500 and in addi tion Brooklyn sent to Washington a left handed pitcher.

College and Pro Stars af Great Lakes Great' Lakes (AP) The press was given a preview yesterday of the GreatLakes foot ball team, disclosing a formidable array of former collegiate and pro fessional talent which Lieut. Paul D. (Tony) Hinkle today will be gin to mold into shape for a stiff 12 game schedule. At this Naval training station, now the largest 9f its kind in the world, a great tradition was born during the first World war when men like George Halas, Paddy Driscoll, Jimmy Conzelman, Charley Bachman, Hugh Blacklock and the late Sam Willaman won fame on the 1918 Sailor eleven that went unbeaten in nine games. Current Stars Today the potential stars were Bruce Smith of Minnesota's Big Ten championship teams of 1940 and 1941, his halfback running mate. Bob Sweiger. and Gopher Lineman Urban Odson; Jim Dan-iell of Ohio State; Jim Barber, the former University of San Francisco star tackle who captained the Washington Redskins of the National Football league in 1939. 1940. and 1941; Carl Mulleneaux. late of the Green Bay Packers; Bill Crawford of Texas Christian's Orange Bowl eleven last year: Pete Kmeto-vic of Stanford, and Rudy Mucha. former LTniversity of Washington powerhouse. With these fine gridiron specimens and some 35 other former collegians present by special invitation. Coach Hinkle and his staff beamed happily as they conducted a limbering up action for news cameras. Today, however, it's down to business which will follow the strict Navy tradition of permitting such activity only after regular sailor-training lessons have been done. Hinkle. former Butler university coach and athletic director is assisted by Lieut. Benny Friedman, former Michigan passing star and later coach at City College of New York: Lieut Mickey Cochrane, thf baseball coach and a former half-, back at Boston university: Ensigns Bob Voigts and Wally Cruice. both former Northwestern gridders. and Chief Specialist Tony Holm, who played a great game at fullback for Alabama in 1927, 1928. and 1929.

(AP PHOTO) Cullenbine Is , Sold to Yanks New York (AP) The New York Yankees, short en outfield talent, yesterday purchased Roy Cullenbine from the Washington Senators. No sale figure was given out but it is believed it wat over the waiver price. Cullenbine, one of baseball's best golfers, also is a former Detroit player, but was given his free agency by Commissioner Kencsaw M. Landis in 1939 when Landis cut the Tigers' bonds on some 90 players for mishandling of contracts. Afterward Cullenbine was paid $25,000 for signing with the Dodgers, was traded to the St. Louis Browns in 1940 and then in the middle of the present season to the Senators. He batted .317 and knocked in 98 runs for the Browns last year, but his average this season has stayed close to .250. He is a switch-hitter, batting either right or lefthanded. The Yankees needed him because Tom Henrich, the expert right-fielder, enlisted in th Coast Guard, He left the club after Sundays game, reducing New York's out-tield corps to Joe DiMaggio, Charley Keller, the veteran George ifwink) Selkirk and George Stam-oack.
