COURIER NEWi MONDAY JULY 19, 1W4 Stan in Violent Protest To Forfeiture Decision Yvars-Torgeson Feud Touches Off Riot at Busch By JACK HAND AP Sports Writer Eddie Stanky, scrappy manager of the St. Louis Cards, boils on the hot "seat today after a fist fight with Terry Moore, the man he fired as coach, and a forfeiture to the Boxing Notes- Pompey in. First Start; NEW YORK (AP) — Yolande Pompey, the man from Trinidad whose name sounds like the first line of a Calypso tune, makes his first U. S. start Wednesday at Chicago Stadium against Moses Ward of Detroit. Phillies for delaying tactics. Stanky and Moore, new manager of Philadelphia, tangled in the midst of one of St. Louis' worst ball field riots in years yesterday to climax a flaming two-year-old feud. . After Moore was fired in 1952, • he departed from his normal mild ways to blast Stanky. "When he loses -a ball game he acts more like a 9-year-old boy than a manager'/ he said. "The job is too big for him. Stanky is temperamentally unsuited for the job of manager," Fireworks were expected when Moore, named manager Thursday, met Stanky 1 s Cards for the first time. It happened .yesterday at Busch Stadium and they're still picking up the pieces. It was the first forfeiture since 1949. Coming from behind three times the Phils pulled out the first game 11-10 in 10 innings on a double by Smoky Burgess and a single by Bobby Morgan; The game had been delayed 1 hour and 18 minutes by rain in the seventh. The second" game didn't start until after .6 p.m., so lights could not be turned on under National League rules. With darkness approaching in the fifth and the Phils leading 8-1 with one man For three years, Pompey has been attracting attention in Britain, knocking out the late Dave Sands, fighting a draw with Jimmy Slade and beating Slade in a rematch. He is ranked fifth among the light Billy Lauderdale. Graham's Comeback This is almost a comeback for Graham, high-ranked welter contender.

Both the 31-year-old Jackson, a Walker Cup player, and the 18- year-old Baxter, national junior champion, were playing in their, first Trans-Miss. Jackson defeated defending champion Joe Conrad, San Marcos, Tex., in the semifinals, 1 up. Jackson, bothered by a stiff neck, wobbled two over par in the 18-hole morning round to fall four down to Baxter at the noon .rest. He carne sizzling back to win six of the next nine holes with spectacular sub-par shooting that unnerved the young Texan. Baxter fell completely apart on the 33rd hole where the match ended. He conceded the match before he reached the green after five shots went awry. The Missouri amateur champion went ahead to stay with a birdie on the 426-yar par-four 27th hole. He drilled in a 30 foot putt. weren't completed. Stanky protested the game, claiming Pinelli had exceeded bis authority. "Any delay prior to the forfeit includir_ free-for-all was precipitated by -members of the Philadelphia club," he said in a telegram to National League President Warren Giles. Catcher Sal Yvars of the Cards and first baseman Earl Torgeson of the Phils touched off the big- battle when they argued and squared off. The two players were old enemies, dating back to a free-for-all in Boston in 1952 over a broken bat when Yvars was with New York and Torgeson with the Braves. Moore, ex-Cardinal great, tumbled out of the dugout and grabbed Yvars. Then Stanky tackled Moore. Moore came up with a dirty face and scratches on his neck. Stanky has a mouse under his right eye and a scratch on his neck. Players from both teams were on the field, punching and wrestling before police broke it up and escorted the men off the field. The day's fistic action vied for attention with the pennant race. Cleveland still leads the American by half a game. Both the Indians and New York Yankees split double-headers. ...The Yanks went out front briefly, for the first time since April 22, by winning the first from Detroit 6-0 on Harry Byrd's :ive-hitter, while Washington was thumping Cleveland 8-3. Cleveland rebounded into the lead by winning its second game 7-4 as the Yanks' 13-game winning streak was snapped by Detroit 8-6. Chicago's White , Sox took a pair from the feeble Philadelphia Ath- etics 10-2 and 4-3 although Paul Richards drew complaints for tailing in the second game. The Boston Red Sox shut out Baltimore 4-0 on a one-hitter by Russ Kemmerer in his first major eague start but the Orioles won he second game 4-1 on Duane Pillette's five-hit pitching. In the National, New York split two at Cincinnati, losing 14-4 in he first game and winning 3-1 on Willie Mays' 33rd homer and vlonte Irvin's 17th. As Brooklyn humped Chicago 12-6 on homers by Roy Campanella, Duke Snider and Carl ""urillo, the Giants lead vas clipped to six games.

"It's so beautiful," said the comedian-who also is an entrant— "You can play lousy and almost enjoy it.' Benny and a former Spokane, Wash., boy named Bing Crosby got in a tuneup round yesterday, along with the defending champion, Dale Morey of Indianapolis, and Johnny Dawson of Palm Springs, Calif. Crosby and Dawson came out on top, 2 and 1. Broadmoore is the course that Byron Nelson cut to pieces in 1946, playing- four rounds in 259 for a national tourney record that still stands. Par for the layout is 70. so Nelson was 21 under standard Although the route is booked at 6.328 yards it's a much longer trip than when Nelson knew it.

They have been the worlds cricket champions for so long that England sick of them. is thoroughly Two of the most coveted golfing crowns fell in recent months to a pair of sharpshooting Aussies whose whose names scarcely were known in this country. First, Douglas Bachli, a small-sized tavern owner from Rosebud, Victoria, won the British amateur title by deafting our own Bill Campbell in the final, and then Peter Thomson, a 23-year old pro from Melbourne, who had done well on the American winter to complete a great double. All of which adds up to an amazing record for a nation which at the most recent head count numbered only about 7 3 /i million persons, not t good athletes. of any other plot on the globe, including this one. You put the combination together and you are going to come up with an awful lot of counting aborigines. As one who has made several trips to the country, we are asked with increasing frequency if there is any ready explanation for the out-of-all-proportion successes of the Aussies. Good, Stronf Folks The answer is, well, yes. They are a big healthy people, and they are crazier about more different Pride has something to do \\-iih it. The Australians feel that they are a little nation, and remote, and it affords them tremendous pleasure to knock over the big boys.

"I started at Middletown Conn.," the strapping 19-year-old said. "Played in a Little League sponsored by the Moose Club. They had me at first base because that league had a rule against 12-year old kids pitching. "When I finished in that league I went to Woodrow Wilson High and pitched there. The Braves signed me when I graduated. "The Little League gave me a real solid background for high school ball. It had an awful lot to do with getting this Milwaukee uniform on me." This is Jay's second year in the National League. He's been used sparingly, but is maturing baseball wise by the day. The Brave, invested $30,000 in him and, a Grimm says, they look for it to paj off plenty. Around the Little League circuit the kids are more interested in copying Joey Jay's style than anything else. He's the first one to make it — but won't be the last. * * « There's quite a story behind the pitching of Cruz Mills, now in the Tucson, Ariz.. Junior American Legion program. Mills, who graduated from Little League with an 8-0 mark at the end of last season, was a patthetic case as a child. Every time he tried to walk, his legs would giveaway and he'd tumble. Eeven when crow- ling. his reflexes wouldn't allow him to negotiate a straight path. It took eight heart-breaking years of treatment before the boy could walk as other do — and during the last year, all Cruz could think of was Little League baseball. The day he was to start in his first LL game, the car he was riding in hit a fence and young wrist was shattered. That set him back another year. But he came back and topped his struggle off with a great showing last year. This year, he is hurling effectively. "He's one of the reasons why we II stick so close to the program," Al Hubbard, his old manager, says. Ntf Control C*.

Bartzen, San Angelo, Tex., sporting goods salesman, wrapped up the National Clay Court crown yesterday with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-0, 6-2 victory over the nation's premier amateur, Tony Trabert of Cincinnati. Prior to that championship match at the suburban River Forest Tennis Club, Bartzen had whippjed the country's second- ranked player, Vic Seixas of Philadelphia, .7-5, 6-4, 6-2, in & semifinal. Trabert was ranked No. 1 for *;be clay court meet; Seixas, No. 2; and Bartzen, No. 4, with Art Larsen of San Leandro, Calif., a semifinal victim of Trabert, No. 3. The 26-year-old Bartzen knocked off Seixas, then Trabert with a dogged retrieving game in which he capitalized fully on every mistake the two stars made. Against Seixas, the 5-foot-8 Texan loped tirelessly around the baselines and back court, saving scores of blasts off the powerful Philadelphian's racquet. Eventually Seixas began to press too hard and made a number of conspicuous errors. Squaring off against the formidable Trabert, Bartzen gave immediate indication that he was by no means intimidated, breaking ,he Cincinnati star's first service and taking the first set easily. Trabtrt turned on all his power n the second set, bulling through to victory on Ms fast serve and remendous net game.
