Golden :lay tur Jubilant Bums Within a Half Game of Giants By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Brooklyn's glee over clumping "them Giants" three in a row is tempered'; by the knowledge that giddy Milwaukee, on a nine-game spree, shows' no signs of running out oi firewater. The Giants' lead, once a bulging seven games, now measures only half a game over the Dodgers. The Braves are 3 ! / 2 games behind. If Brooklyn beats the. Phillies tonight in the only game scheduled, they'll trail New York by only .002. Brooklyn bumped off New York yesterday'6-4''for a sweep of their three-game scries whiln Milwaukee squeaked past Chicago 2-1 St. Louis barely survived, 14-12, over Cincinnati when Gus Bell, Tod Klusowski and Jim Greengrass hit successive homers in tho ninth inning. Pittsburgh wen its fourth straight 9-0, its longest streak of the year, at Philadelphia and rallied to tie the second game G-G in the eighth when the curfew forced play to be suspended. Cleveland moved throe full games .-in front 'of Now York in the American League race. Tho Indians van their winning streak to six by downing Baltimore ii-2 and 3-1. Tho Yanks' scored eight in the first inning on .tho way to a H-U decision over'Boston, their seventh i was prnelictilly Jlevcland. Johnny Schmitz ,'pitche Washington to a 4-1 victory ovc Philahelphia. '. Billy Loos' pitching was a mos important .factor in Brooklyn's success against Now York. The young vi;;ht-handur calmly sot down the Giants with soven hits lor his sixth straight triumph. After Jim Hoi!i-n's wiklncss presented the Brooks with three gift runs in the second, the sluggers took over. Duke Snider and Gil'Hodges hom- ered and Jackie Robinson contributed two doubles. Willie? Mays hit No. 37 his first since July 28 and Rny Knit. Al Dark and Hank Thompson r.lso hit homo runs for Now York. Gene' Co'nley, the Braves' lanky rookie, won his 12th with a seven- hitter' 'that included six infield hits. Joe Adcock's double and Johnny Logan's single in the fourth provided the winner after Milwaukee scored an unearned run on Vern Morgan's wild throw in the third. The. homers by Bell, Klus/cewski and Greengrass tied a record held by many clubs bat couldn't save Cincinuti from defeat. Joe Cunningham's homer with two on and Stan Musial's 31st helped tt Cardss win a wild one. Larry Doby and Bobby Avila slammed homers in Cleveland's sweep over Baltimore. Doby hit No. 27 with two on in the sixth inning of the first game. Rookie Bob. Grim won his 16th for the - Yankes although Boston made it a little uncomfortable atler trailing at one stage 11-0. Art Schallock und Tom Morgan finally jyubduccl the rallying Hed Sox Harry Agganis homered, for the Sox. Mickey Mantle smashed No 26 for the Yanks.

Call U$ for Delivery Dare Hope Locker & Processing Co SOUTH MAIN STREET H. Washbuftt Not Much Excuse for Walkout of American's 1,200 Top Flying Men Striking pilots of American Air- have taken an arbitrary ac- which is virtually guaranteed r jst them the sympathy of the r ellng public, not to mention fellow employes who are being' nalized also. Twelve hundred pilots quit be- ause American Airlines insisted scheduling non-stop flights of ie hew DC-7 ship from coast to oast. The DC-7 flies from west to ast in about 35 minutes under 8 hours; but on the return trip west, against prevailing headwinds, it requires 35 minutes over 8 hours— attfhuntil the advent of the DC-7 the Civil Aerbnautics Board had a deadline of not more than 8 hours' continuous flight time for a domes- ,ic airline crew. The CAB relaxed the rule when the DC-7 went into service, but the pilots stood on what they imagined to be their rights under the old rule—and struck. Because of this extra 35 minutes 1,200 pilots 'arc out on strike, and 12,pflO 'other American Airliner em- plbjfes will lose their pay checks shortly as the big company's operations come to a standstill. It is hard for even the staunchpst friend of aviation to attempt to defend the misguided 1,200 members of the pilots' association. Com mercial Hying has come a long way in the last 20 years, and much of r the credit is due to the CAB'S wise supervision. The CAB had approvec fftjnerican's non-stop flights with the .DC-7 ship, and the individutr .s look on a heavy responsi jbility when they bucked the gov ernment and the public, as we! as the line, with this strike. Overseas pilots fly ns much a." 12 hours at a stretch so that the argument over an 8-hour-35-mi!T' iites schedule isn't particular im pressive. In both foreign and do inestic service the pilots are of duty much of the time, domestic pilots flying only 10 days and laying of&j20 days each month in the cas ofthe non-stop transcontinental. Certainly the CAB changed the rules when Douglas brought ou its new fast DC-7 ship. The whole history of aviation has been one of change—although today's strikers are trying to tell us a rule once made can't be changed. 55TH YEAR: VOL. 55 — NO. 257 S» 8 r of Hap* !«»», Consolidated Jan.

Rettig iErvin Felkin of Glarksville, Ark., was jailed after a special officer reported seeing him lifting trunk- tops -of automobiles parked in a downtown area. Police found Felkin's car parked next to a pickup truck stolen from S-Sgt. Joe C. Brashears' of Sulphur, Okla., who is stationed at Carswell Air Force Base, Fort crth, Tex. *«rashears told the highway pa- [trol Friday two hitch-hikers took fills truck and $73 after he- picked [them up at Gainesville, Tex. They [let him out near Moore, Okla., south of here. Officers said they found a shirt [and trousers from an Air Force [uniform in Felkin's car, and the jjshirt".'had staff sergeant's . stripes ion the sieves. An Air Force cap [•was in the truck, they reported also recovered a set o! Ibrass knuckles from Felkin's cai [and a knife from the truck. Felkin said the car belongs to shis father and he was looking in other automobiles ir>. an effort to find a jack to borrow. He said he needed to fix a bad tire on the parked car. He pointed out that two previous droughts forced Arkansas farmers to operate on a thin margin. Both Vines and State Sen. Marvin Melton of' Jonesboro, head of the drought study committee, predicted that all 75 counties in Arkansas eventually would be designated drought disaster areas. The .committee, appointed by Gov. Francis Cherry, is asking the iederal government to provide ^100,000 for the pay program in Arcansas this year. Melton expressed hope that Ihfi use of a feed made mostly from rice hulls to which could be produced in Arkansas might enable a ; reduced cost to. Arkansas farm- rs.

Portuguese in Possession of Fortress By EUGENE LEVIN NEW DELHI, India — (fP) Portuguese troops were reported in full possession today of Goa's Tiracol fortress after a show of force dis lodged the band of pro-Indian demonstrators who occupied the bastion Sunday. .Reports published in New Delh newspapers, made no mention of j any casualties in the recapture of the fort yesterday but a report received in Bombay. ssid '.ona'Qf the demonstrators was killed and another wounded. The band of Goan nationalists had occupied the -fort on Goa's northern frontier early Sunday after eight Portuguese police garrisoning it fled. Capture of Tiracol was the nationalists' only success in their widely publicized "liberation march" which fizzled down to only a token invasion of the Portuguese -Indian territories claimed by India.

The mambo, which has an ex citing Afro-Cuban pulse beat, is a melodic wedding of hot jive and the rhumba. It certainly is music that had Prado's life blood in it. Since 1943 he has written mambos, including "Marpbo Jam- oo", a wild fire hit that has sold more than two million records.
