MSW YORK, Aug. 21—(INS) IN — The Cardinals’ pitchers seem to be coming to hand, as they say at the race tracks, and the faster they come, the dimmer grow the Dodgers’ hopes of winning the National league pennant. The Cardinal throwers have been turning in some remark- a b I y fine games lately and they have only to continue their top - flight pitch i n g through the next two weeks to put an awful crimp in the D o d g e r s’ chance*, Howie Pollet, ace left hander of the Cards, turned in a three- hitter to beat the Braves last night, 4 to I, for his 15th victory of the season. Ray Sanders’ homer spoiled Pollees shutout, but he was never in danger of losing. That victory lifted the Cards up within half a game of the Dodgers, who bowed to the Pirates, IO to 0. Cubs Win Two. The Cubs took a pair from the Phillies, 10-2 and 5-2, and blowie Pollen the Giants nosed out the Reds, 4-3, on Cooper * homer. In the other league, the Red Sox split a pair with the Browns, winning the first, 5-1, and losing the second, 5-4. Ellis Kinder, 32-year-old rookie, won his first major league game in the nightcap despite Ted Williams’ 33rd homer. Another rookie, young Bob Savage of the Athletics, tamed Hal Newhouser and the Tigers, ? to 0. Savage held the slugging Tigers to three hits. Ed Lopat, White Soil* southpaw, who learned how to pitch on the sidewalks of New York, scored an easy 9-2 victory over the Yanks. Randy Gumpert, who lad won eight straight, was the victim, but he could sue Joe Dimaggio for non-support. Joe started Gumpert on his way to defeat by msijudging a fly with the bases loaded and although Joe weighed in with a single and his 20th homer, his offense was not enough to offset his defensive miscue. Feller Defeated. Mickey Haefner outpitched Bob Feller as the Senators downed the Indians, 5-4. It was Bullet Bob’s third, straight defeat. He fanned seven to raise his strikeout total to 275. Before the game the’ army tested Bob’s speed on a machine which showed that his fast ball travels 145 feet a second or 98.6 miles an hour. Four First Spots Rode By Mailer!

Jackie Burke, the stylist with a punch from Grand Rapids, Minn., had a glove in Larry Watson’s face most of Tuesday evening as he took a ten-round decision in the featured match of the American Legion boxing card at Memorial Stadium. Some 4,000 whooping spectators saw the fights which were sponsored by the Lincoln American Legion Post No. 3 drum and bugle corps. Willie Duncan, colored scrapper from Brooklyn, showed power in beating down Duke Anderson, Topeka, Kans., in a welterweight scrap. After taking a hard lacing in the second round, Anderson was unable to report for the third. The slowest match was the semi-final waltz between a pair of welterweights—Howard Blehyl, Madison, Minn., and Jess Jackson, Sioux City, la. Alex Fidler, Cedar Rapids, la., refereed the bouts.

College All-Stars CHICAGO, Aug. 21—(AP)—All decked out in flashy uniforms Coach Bo McMillin’s “pore Iii’ boys”—the college all-stars to you —will trot on to soldier field tonight for a full dress rehearsal for the battle w'ith the Los Angeles Rams before an expected 95,000 Friday night. Bo and his aides—Jim Phelan of St. Mary’s, Wally Butts of Georgia, Jim Lookabough of Oklahoma Aggies, Tuss McLaughry of Dartmouth and Lynn Waldorf of Northwestern—will herd the group through a few plays of Bo’s “cockeyed T,“ w'hich carried his Indiana Hoosiers to the western conference title last year. Although the all-star array has more bulk, more stars, more age and more experience of any in the past, it takes more than that to make Bo—a professional moaner from way back—happy. “Our boys haven’t looked good at all,” fumes Bo, “We just hope they get fired up on the eve of the game like college boys some time do (at least 55 of them will be, playing for pay in the pro circuits this fall). Bob Waterfield. the Ram’s great passer, will be awarded the National league’s most valuable trophy at the game. But since he will be required to report to the dressing room between halves, his wife, movie actress Jane Russell, will accept the award. None of the 95.000 spectators is expected to object. -HOW THEY? CTI A /#> JrM NU AMERIC AN LEAGUE. I iii : I IM OI ’N SI CW—Al lei si 21.

Ferrier Leads PGA —SHOOTS SH FIRST ROCM I— PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 21— (AP)—Byron Nelson, defending national professional golf champion who prefers medal to match play, stakes his title today in a pair of 18-hole “sudden death” matches at the Portland golf club. Nelson, who automatically qualified, sat out yesterday’s second 18-hole qualifying round to catch up on his correspondence. On the eve of the match play, Nelson seemed more concerned with what might happen to him Thursday. “I’ll have to play either Herman Barron or Herman Keiser Thursday if I get through—and they’re plenty tough when you’ve only got 18 holes to maneuver in,” Nelson gloomed. The tournament medalist, big Jim Ferrier, erstwhile Australian now of San Francisco, was matched against Sam Schneider of Houston, Tex., in a lower bracket feature. Ferrier shattered p*r and P. G. A, records yesterday with a nine-under-par 29-34—63, which, with his previous day s 71 gave him a medal score of 134. The old mark was held jointly by Fred Morrison of San Francisco and Frank Moore, Overland, Mo., with 136. All the name players got through the qualifying round. They included E. J. “Dutch” Harrison of Little Rock, Ark., who carded a 65-71—136 for second place and Ben Hogan, who had a 68-69—137 for third place. Jimmy Hines. Chicago, who had a scorching 66 on his opening round, blew sky-high to 80 for a 146; and the joint “world champs”—Sammy Snead, British open titlist and Lloyd Mangrum, U. S. open king, both needed 147. But they qualified.

Mich , Aug. 21 — J (AP)—Fielding Harris Yost, 75-year-old University of Michigan athletic director emeritus, today joined in death the ranks of a generation that made football a big time enterprise in the midwest, j Victim an acute gall bladder J attack at his home here yesterday ; afternoon “the coach” died not I far from a college campus on which he wrought his own memorials and wrote his own testaments of victory. The elder statesman of Michigan football, Yost had been a semi-invalid for the past few years following his retirement in 1940 as athletic director, living quietly with his wife and retelling the exploits of the Wolverine teams he piloted to scores of triumphs. Ile came to Michigan In 1901 after turning out championship teams at Ohio Wesleyan, the Universities of Nebraska and Kansas and Leland Stanford university. Piling up 200 points to the opponents’ 78, Yost's 1898 Corn­ husker team won nine games and lost two. The team defeated Hastings. Iowa State. Tarkio, Mo.. William and Jewell, Missouri, Kansas. Colorado and the Denver Athletic Club while losing to Drake and the Kansas City medics. From 1901 to 1905 Yost turned B o s t o n-born, Harvard-educated father of the guild. The defeat was the third for Murphy since he launched his organizing campaign early in the season. On June 7, the Pirates cancelled a scheduled strike minutes before a game with the New York Giants. Later, the national labor relations board declined to accept jurisdiction over the guild. Murphy has refused to give up. j He filed charges of unfair labor practices yesterday against the Pittsburgh owners before the PLRB. Similar charges were tossed out by the National Labor Board. FIELDING H. YOST—Famed men of iootball at Michigan and ex University of Nebraska coach disd Tuesday a1 Ann Arbor, Mich., at 'he ago of 75. loose a series of point-a-minute elevens that rar up a record of 55 victories, one tie and one defeat. The defeat, incidentally, was ad ministered by Stagg’s 1905 Chicago team when a Michigan player was downed behind his ow 1 goal line for a 2-0 score. Yost, whose constant urge for speed and more speed earned him the nickname of “Hurry Up,” considered the 1925 Wolverine outfit the best ie ever tuned out. It was quarterbacked by All-American Benny Friedman and included the three-time All-America end Bennie Oosterbaan, the present Michigan backfield coach. Yost’s ability to ada t his style of play to the times made him a pioneer in football. His system was known as “a punt, a pass and a prayer,” with emphasis on a strong, rugged defense. It differed from the modern wide-open style of game, but it produced rich dividends in victory.
