Dodgers Close In on Reds with 8-3_Victory'

Rudolph Sets Record as U.S.
Nips West German Thinc lads

By The Associated Press
geles Dodgers whittled Cincinnati's
National League lead to 21/2 games
last night as they sent the slump-
ing Reds down to their fourth
straight defeat 8-3. It was only
after last Saturday's games that
the Reds held a six-game lead.
Johnny Podres, holding the Reds
to nine hits and 'building his
season record to 11-2, pitched his
first complete game in Cincinnati
since July 28, 1957.
Bob Purkey, going in with an
11-4 record, was the losing hurler.
Bill Henry and Sherman Jones
followed him to the mound.
In defeat the Reds showed more
signs of coming apart at the
seams, particularly defensively.
They were guilty of two errors
plus another slipshod play that
didn't show in the box score.
Five of the Dodgers' runs were
Norm Larker had.three hits for
the Dodgers while Charley Neal
drove in two of the Los Angeles
runs. The Dodgers wound up with
11 hits off the trio of Cincinnati

Senators 8-12, Yankees 4-2
ington Senators, playing before
their largest home crowd of the
season, lowered the boom on the
New York Yankees twice, 8-4 and
12-2, in a twi-night doubleheader.
It was the first time this season
the Yankees have lost a double-
header. It also marked the first
time in three weeks that the Yan-
kees have lost two in a row.
The Yankees, engaged in a neck-
and-neck battle with Detroit for
the league lead, did not look like
champions to the crowd of 27,162.
The Yankee pitchers went wild
and their defense crumbled. They

Attract Top
Golf Pros
To Tourney
MILWAUKEE (IP) - A heavy
rainfall which soaked most of the
metropolitan area skirted the
North Hills Country Club yester-
day as the nation's top touring
golf pros tuned up for the start
today of the $30,000 Milwaukee
Officials of the seventh annual
tournament breathed sighs of re-
lief as the dark clouds passed just
a short distance away with a
$3,100 pro-amateur competition
The 6,410-yard course, fairly
short but exacting, was pronounc-
ed in excellent shape. The layout
is dry from lack of rain and the
rough shouldn't cause as much
trouble as a year ago when Ken
Venturi won top money of $4,300
with a 72-hole total of nine under
par 271.
Barring rain during the four-
day test, par 70 may be in for
a beating. Venturi predicted a win-
ning score a few strokes under
his 1960 total.
One of the best practice rounds
was turned in by Rex Baxter,
1957 runnerup for the U. S.
amateur title from Amarillo, Tex.
Baxter carded a brilliant 64.
Top Winners
The field of 145 includes 30 of
the top 40 money winners on the
pro circuit this year. The "big"
names among the missing are
Arnold Palmer, aiming for the
PGA championship after winning
the British Open, Art Wall Jr.,
Bill Collins, Ted Kroll and Jerry
Gene Littler, the U. S. Open
titlist and 1959 Milwaukee win-
ner, is also among the missing.
However, the field still ranks
as one of the best to appear in
Milwaukee. Masters champion
Gary Player, a tourist from South
Africa with more than $55,000 in
prize money this year is among
the glittering list of entries.
Also on hand are former Na-
tional Open champions Cary Mid-
dlecoff, Tommy Bolt and Bill Cas-
per Jr., former PGA kings Bob
Rosburg, Doug Ford and Jackie
Burke Jr., and such young play-
ers as newly-crowned Canadian
Open titlist Jackie Cupit and Doug

night and sparked the Baltimore
Orioles to a 4-2 triumph that pre-
vented the Detroit Tigers from
taking over first place in the
American League.
Skinny Brown blew down De-
troit's effort to extract a late-
inning victory when he rescued
starter Jack Fisher from a
seventh-inning jam and pitched'
three perfect innings of relief ball.
The Tigers could have taken
over first place by beating the
Orioles since the New York Yan-
kees dropped a twi-night double-
header to the Washington Sena-
tors. But the loss kept the Tigers'
three percentage points behind
the Yankees.
Foiles, who could have been the
goat in both games as the Tigers
stole seven bases while he was
catching in the two contests,
cracked his first homerun of the
season Tuesday night as the
Orioles battled from behind. He
hit his second last night in the
seventh inning with the bases
Gentile, who won the opening
game of the series with a 10th-
inning homerun, hit his 24th with
a mate aboard in the third in-
Both blasts came off Jim Bun-
ning, who had won five in a row.
Bunning allowed only five hits and
struck out 11, but the Orioles made
all but one of their hits count.
Braves 8-1, Phillies 5-2
PHILADELPHIA - Forty-year-
old Elmer Valo touched off a
ninth-inning rally as the Phila-
delphia Phillies came from behind
at the finish to defeat the Mil-
waukee Braves, 2-1, in the second
game of a twi-night doubleheader.
The Braves won the opener, 8-5.
The Braves, with Carlton Willey
on the mound, went into the ninth
inning with a 1-0 lead which came
in the seventh on Joe Adcock's
19th home run.
But Valo batted for Don Fer-
rarese, a lefthander who allowed
the Braves only three hits, and
singled to right field. Ken Wal-
ters ran for him and went to
second on Bob Malkmus' sacri-
fice bunt. John Callison singled to
center, scoring Walters, and tak-
ing second on the throw to the
Don Demeter walked, and both
runners advanced as Tony Gon-
zalez grounded out. Charlie Smith
was given an intentional walk to
load the bases.
Lee Walls then singled to right
scoring Callison with the deciding

ST. LOUIS-Bill White - who
tied a 49-year-old hitting record
Tuesday-belted a 10th inning sin-
gle that gave the St. Louis Card-
inals a 3-2 victory over the San
Francisco Giants here.
It was the Cards' fifth straight
Craig Anderson, who tookover
for Ray Sadecki in the ninth,
pitched brilliantly in relief and
started the winning rally with an
infield hit.
Anderson, now 3-1, came in after
Harvey Kuenn hit a game tying
home run and Joe Amalfitano
walked. He retired six straight hit-
ters, striking out three.
Stu Miller took the defeat. His
record is 7-3 and all his defeats
are at the hands of the Redbirds.
i Bob Lillis followed Anderson's
single in the 10th with a single,
setting the stage for White.


UNDEFEATED - Unbelievable, but true. With less than half
the American League season remaining Cleveland's Barry Latman
has still to taste defeat this year. The young right hander scat-
tered eight hits last night to notch his ninth win of the season.
Undecided after Mixup

STUTTGART, Germany UP) -
Wondrous Wilma Rudolph stole
the show away from the men t
again last night by speeding to
a world record 11.2 seconds in
the 100-meter dash as the Ameri-
can males defeated West Ger-
many, 14-6 and 120-91 in points.
The Olympic triple gold medal-
ist, competing in a special race
on the dual meet program, clipped
one-tenth off the world mark of
:11.3 she shares with two othersa
in beating teammate Willye White1
by two yards. Barbara Brown ofj
New York was third.
Willowy Wilma of Tennessee{
State University is co-holder of
the listed record with Mrs. Shir-
ley De La Hunty of Australia and
Vera Krepkina of Russia. She
tied the :11.3 standard in the'
meet against Russia at Moscow
last weekend.
Miss White, who excels in the.
broad jump, helped push Wilma,
her teammate from Tennessee
State, to the record. Willye was
clocked in :11.5 and Miss Brown
in :11.9.
Wilma was off the blocks fast
but she had to turn on the steam
in the last 50 meters to shake off
Miss White.
There was no noticeable sup-
porting wind and officials were
confident that Miss Rudolph's
record would gain recognition.
Just before the start of the
twilight meet before 50,000 in
Neckar Stadium, Jim Grelle pull-
ed out of the 1,500 meters with a
sore throat and John Fromm had
to withdraw from the javelin
throw because of a muscle pull.
American Coach Jumbo Jim El-
liott pressed his two decathlon
men-there was no decathlon
competition in this meet - Paul
Herman and Dave Edstrom into
service. Herman, of Westmount,
Calif., finished fourth in the 1,500
meters won by Dyrol Burleson of
Oregon in 3:50.2, and Edstrom
was fourth in the spear throw won
by Germany's Rolf Herings with
245 feet.
Prospects Black
The U.S. prospects looked black
indeed when Germany's Manfred
Germar nipped Frank Budd of
Villanova in the 200 meters in
20.7 seconds-just one-tenth of a
second off the German's European
record. Budd also was clocked in

The large crowd was beginning
to believe an upset was possible.
But the Americans collected two
unexpected firsts to fill the
breach. Deacon Jones of Fort Lee,
Va., captured the 3,000 meter
steeplechase in 8:47.4 and was fol-
lowed home by Bob Schul of the
Air Force.
Then John Gutnecht, a slim
New York Athletic Club distance
runner from Poland, Ohio, won
the 10,000 meters in 29:46.8. This
gave the United States another
five important points even though
Charles Clark of San Jose, Calif.,
dropped out.
Tremendous Ovation
The travel-weary Americans,
who defeated Russia last weekend,
were given a tremendous ovation
by the spectators.
With no pressure on him, John
Thomas of Boston U. relaxed and
won the high jump, clearing 7
feet, % inch. World record holder
Ralph Boston of Nashville, Tenn.,
captured the broad jump with a
26-3% leap.
The other events went pretty
much according to form, although-
Cliff Cushman of Grand Forks,
N.D., had a king-sized scare
thrown into him in the 400-meter
hurdles by Helmut Janz, an old
rival from the Olympics.
Stride for Stride
Going into the final turn, Cush-
man and Janz were running stride
for stride. Down the homestretch
they went and it wasn't until the
final step that Cushman managed
to throw himself across the line
in front. Both were caught in 50.4
Cushman went down in a heap
when he broke the tape, but got
up grinning.
"Whew," said the tall, blond
graduate of the University of Kan-
sas, "that guy can run."
Cushman was second in the
Rome Olympics last year and Janz
was fifth.
Burleson, who couldn't run
against, the Russians because of
an upset stomach' caused by eat-
ing a hero sandwich, passed Klaus
Lehman of West Germany in the

last 100 yards and won as he
Jay Silvester, an Army lieuten-
ant from Trementon, Utah, be-
came a double winner by adding
the shot put to his discus gold
medal. He had a heave of 60 feet,
5 inches, beating Gary Gubner, the
New York U. freshman. Gubner,
winner against the Russians, had
a throw of 59-2%.
The Yank 1,600 meter relay
team of Adolph Plummer of
Brooklyn and New Mexico, Jerry
Siebert of Willets, Calif., Earl
Young of San Fernando, Calif.,
and Ulis Williams of Compton,
Calif., scored easily in 3:06.1. The
German quartet was clocked in
Vets Garcia,
Sign Contracts
Mike Garcia and Maury Mc-
Dermott, two veteran American
League pitchers, were signed yes-
terday by Washington andKansas
City, respectively.
Garcia, a 37-year old right
hander, has spent most of his
career with the Cleveland Indians.
He wore a Tribe uniform for
eleven seasons.
Garcia pitched briefly for the
Chicago White Sox last year and
had been working out with the
Senators for several days before
inking his pact.
McDermott, 33, spent most of
his career with Washington (now
Minnesota) and Boston. Last year
he compiled a 13-11 mark for

Olivieri, manager of Harold John-
son, the National Boxing Associa-
tion light heavyweight champion,
hesitated yesterday to sign a con-
tract for Johnson to meet Eddie
Cotton, fifth-ranked contender in
a 15-round title fight in Seattle
on Aug. 29.
Olivieri had said he would sign
in the New York offices of match-
maker Dewey Fragetta.
Later he said he received a tele-
gram from Sid Flaherty, manager
of Eddie Machen, the No. 2 rank-
ed heavyweight whom Johnson de-
feated in an unpopular decision
July 1 in Atlantic City.
Olivieri said he had promised
Flaherty he would give Machen a
return match within 40 days.
The date Flaherty named for
the return bout was Aug. 11 in
Portland, Ore. That's one day over
the 40 days, Olivieri said, and
now he doesn't know what he'll
do. Pat said he has no contract, no
advance money and no $7,500 cash
t. .1

in escrow deposited for a Machen-
Johnson match as he demanded.
Besides, he adds, the Cotton-
Johnson match would be a good
one. So, he indicated, he's hedging
until at least today when he said
he might go to New York and
talk with Fragetta.
Tuesday night Olivieri said the
Seattle fight would enable John-
son to get a $20,000 guarantee or
40 per cent of the gate plus a
cut from television receipts if the
bout is televised. The matter of
TV remained to be determined.
It would be Johnson's second de-
fense of the crown since he won
it last February by knocking out
Jesse Bbwdry.
"I don't understand it anymore
-people in this business do things
crazy," Olivieri commented, add-
ing "I don't know if I'm coming
or going.

Last Rites for Ty Cobb Held



By The Associated Press
ROYSTON, Ga. - Ty Cobb went
home for the last time yesterday.
The body of baseball's fiery
genius was entombed in the white
marble family mausoleum beside
his parents and his sister Flor-
Cobb's earthly saga ended in the
rolling red clay hills of northeast
Georgia only a few miles from his
birthplace. Some of the old-timers
who once played sandlot baseball
with the matchless Georgia Peach
were on hand to see him into his
final resting place.
Cobb, 74, died Monday in an
Atlanta hospital after a 19-month
battle with cancer. Diabetes, a
chronic heart ailment and a se-
vere arthritic condition also handi-
capped the baseball great and
made his final years painful.
Conquers World
Cobb left this hilly country 56
years ago as a teen-ager to chal-
lenge and then conquer the base-
ball world. His feats put more
records in the annals of the past-
time than any other player before
or since.
About 200 little league baseball
players, uniformed and with heads
bared, lined the roadway leading
from the cemetery entrance to

and Detroit Tigers and Schalk
with the Chicago White Sox. Both
were warm personal friends of
Cobb. Other notables from the
baseball world included Sid Keen-
er, Director of the Baseball Hall
of Fame at Cooperstown, N. Y.,
where Cobb headed the first group
of super stars to be enshrined.
Nap Rucker, later a National
League pitching star but Cobb's.
roommate when they broke into
baseball together at Augusta, was
also among the mourners.
In the enclosed family section
at the chapel were Cobb's first
wife, the former Charlie Marion
Lombard of Augusta; their son,
James; and two daughters, Mrs.
Thomas D. McLaren and Mrs.
Richard D. Beckworth, all of Cali-
fornia. Several of Cobb's 15 grand-
children were also present.
Services were conducted by the
Rev. E. A. Miller, pastor of the
Cornelia Christian Church, and
Dr. John R. Richardson, pastor of
Atlanta's Westminister Presbyter-
ian Church.
"He leaves a host of friends and
admirers, not only across the
United States but across the whole
world," Miller said.
"In his field of endeavor he
won just about everything that

could be won. His influence will
continue to bring the best out of
youth. Ty Cobb was never satis-
fied with second best."
Cobb lay in state in a bronze,
glass-topped casket until 2 p.m.
(EST) an hour before the funeral.
A steady procession of townspeople
including many boys in little
league shirts entered the small
room for a last look at the figure
who had become a baseball leg-
A gaunt, graying man lifted a
small boy so he could glimpse
Cobb. "Davey, that man was the
greatest ballplayer who ever lived,"
he said in a soft voice.
"I know, grandpa," the boy
whispered. "That's Ty Cobb. He
got more hits than anybody, didn't
He certainly did.
