I Kansas was the last team to so much as share a Big Seven crown with Oklahoma. The Jayhawks finished as co-champs in 1946 and again in 1947. Since that time Oklahoma hasn't lost--or tied--a single game to a Big Seven mem- ' ber. The Sooners have won "the last four banners in a breeze.

The 24-year-old righthander of the St. Louis Cardinals, brought up from the minor leagues less than a month ago, shut out the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on four hits Thursday night, just as he did In ' is malor league debut in Chicago August 12. Displaying a sharpe curve and baffling change of pace, Miller struck out seven and walked only four. He gave up only one hit for five innings, disposing of 17 of t' . first 18 to face him.
