ton's persistent Senators rallied
twice last night to down second
place Chicago 7-5, as rain fell
throughout the game.
Despite the loss, Chicago re-
mained only .003 percentage points
behind first place New York, which
lost 5-2 to Kansas City.
Washington put together three-
run rallies in the fourth and
seventh innings and added an in-
surance run in the eighth for its
third straight victory.
Chicago scored a run in the
first on infield hits by Jim Landis
and Nelson Fox and Sherman
Lollar's double.
The Senators' snapped back in
the fourth with the help of some
erratic throwing by the White
Sox. Harmon Killebrew led off
with a single, but turned his ankle
and was replaced by Billy Consolo.
Bob Allison then walked and1
Jim Lemon singled to drive in one
run. When Minoso threw wild to
third, Allison also scored. Lemon

Mizell, hurling only his third
complete game but notching his
seventh victory against five losses,
faced only 29 Cub batters in a
masterful performance.
Mizell allowed a single by Cub
starter Jim Brewer in the sixth
and a ninth-inning one-bagger by
Richie Ashburn, who was nailed
at second trying to stretch it into
a double.

Former Red Sox outfielder Neil

Littler Maintains Lead
In Eastern Golf Open

PURELY RECREATION?--John Thomas, top U.S. Olympic high
jumper, who clears the bar here easily at seven feet, will have to,
sign an entry form declaring himself to be a strictly amateur
athlete. The form, which all entrants to the 1960 Rome games
must sign, is designed to "maintain the prestige of the Olympia


PARIS (A') - The International
Olympic Committee (IOC) has
urged that the national Olympic
committees make certain only
pure-in-heart amateurs are per-
mitted to compete in the Rome
A letter signed by Avery Brun-
dage of Chicago, TO president,
and Otto Mayor, Olympic chan-
cellor, has been sent to all na-
tional Olympic committees. Copies
of the letter posted from Olympic
headquarters at Lausanne were
received in Paris yesterday.
The letter notes that entries for
the games are due soon and that
each entry form requires the com-
petitor to sign the following
"I, the undersigned, declare on
my honor that I am an amateur
and fulfill the conditions stipu-
lated by the Olympic rules."
The letter goes on to say:
"This declaration must be coun-
tersigned by the national (sports)
federation of the competitor and
by your committee.
"We trust that you will use the
utmost discretion in signing these
forms and that you will bring to
the attention of your national
federations their responsbillity in
exercising a strict control of their
af iliated athletes ...
"It has been alleged that there
have been competitors in previous
Olympic games who were not eli-
gible under the Olympic rules. If
this is the case, at least three
people have made false certifica-
tions in each instance.
"We count on you to help us
maintain the prestige of the
Olympic movement by confining
the games to those who are eligi-
ble according to the rules.
Participates for Pleasure
The IOC's rule on amateurism
says "an amateur is one who par-
ticipates and always has partici-
pated in sport solely for pleasure
and for the physical, mental and
social benefits he derives there-
from, and to whom participation
in sport is nothing more than
recreation without material gain
of any kind, direct or indirect."
Brundage and the IOC created
a furor four years ago just prior
to the Melbourne games when the
athletes were asked to sign a
pledge in which they swore they
were true amateurs at the time
and would continue to be.
The committee has been dis-
turbed for some time by boxers,
basketball players and figure
skaters who sign lucrative pro
contracts soon after gaining
Olympic fame.
Both Floyd Patterson and
Ingemar Johansson, who fought a
second time for the world heavy-
weight title on June 20, turned
pro soon after the 1952 games and
Bill Russell of the United States
winning basketball team joined
Boston soon after the 1956 games.

Baltimore (M)-Gene Littler of
Singing Hills, Calif., managed to
hold onto the lead yesterday in the
second round of the $25,000 East-
ern Open Golf Tournament by
shooting an eagle three on the last
The sensational finish provided
the 30-year-old with a 68 and a
total of 133, 11 under par for
the Pine Ridge course, halfway
through the tournament, which
concludes tomorrow.
It staved off Doug, Ford, the
hard working veteran from Crystal
River, Fla., and Juan Ridriguez,
the surprising newcomer of this
tourney. They pulled to within one
stroke of Littler; Ford by carving
a 66 on the part 72 course, and
Rodriguez by posting his second
straight 67.
Littler Ties Record
Littler had boomed into a two-
stroke lead in Thursday's round
by tying his own record of 65 for
the course. Ford, one of the game's
constant money winners and in-
frequent champions, began with a
Then he carded his first bogey
of the tournament at the 15th
hole, where he overshot the green
and carded a five.
Littler responded by hitting the

ball within 10 feet of the 523-yard
18th hole with a drive and three
iron. He sank the putt for the
saving eagle, two strokes under
Ford, a 10-year veteran of the
PGA circuit nearing his 38th birth-
day, had a chance to duplicate
and tie Littler. He was within 15
feet of the 18th hole with a drive
and four iron, but just missed the
putt and had to settle for a birdie.
Rodriguez Cards Birdie
Rodriguez, a putting wizard
weighing less than 120 pounds,
missed the chance to tie at the
15th, where he also carded his
first bogey in two rounds. He
hastily hit a putt of only 18 inches
for a " par four and it stayed out.
Rodriguez, 24 years old and
playing in this third tournament
in this country, had 10 one-putt
greens. Two of them were long
distance jobs of 35 and 20 feet'
for a pair of his six birdies.
Only the 76 pros who scored 145
or under will continue in today's
third round and the low 60 scorers
on Sunday. Among the best known
pros who failed to make the third
round was Jack Fleck, the Open
champion of 1955 and 11th leading
money winner this season. He had

The Continental League is ex-,
pected to make formal application
for recognition as a third major
league Tuesday at Chicago at an
important meeting of baseball's
expansion committees.
No formal action is anticipated
but the committees' recommenda-
tions could chart the course for
the sport's future program.
"This could be the most momen--
tuous meeting in the history of
baseball," said Bill Shea, founder
of the Continenal League in New
York. "It depends on the sincerity
of the people who are there." Shea
will attend the meeting with
Branch Rickey, league president,
and representatives of each of the
eight clubs in the league.
Frick Won't Attend -
Commissioner Ford Frick will,
not attend. Neither will President
Warren Giles of the National nor
Joe Cronin of the American.
"This is a meeting at a com-
mittee level," said Commissioner
Frick. "That should be under-
stood. If the committees can reach
an agreement on something they
can submit, league meetings will
be called. No official action can
be taken."
Shea and Rickey plan to show
how they have qualified under
