Tigers Lose 9-7
NEW YORK, Aug. 22-(P)-Knock-
ing out Hal Newhouser, Detroit's ace
lefthander, with a six-run fifth in-
ning spree, the New York Yankees
outlasted a late Tiger rally today to
earn an even split in their four-
game series, winning the season's last
meeting of the two clubs in New
York, 9 to 7.
By thwarting Newhouser's bid for
his sixth straight pitching triumph
over the world champions, the Yank-
ees vaulted ahead of the Tigers into
Detroit, held in chick by Rookie
righthander Mel Queen for six in-
nings, during which they tagged him
for only two hits, broke loose for
three runs in the seventh and three
more in the eighth, with homers by
Dick Wakefield and Paul Richards,
but a 9-0 lead proved too much to
Ernie Bonham, Johnny Johnson
and Jim Turner toiled in turn on
the Yankee mound after the Tiger
home run outburst which chased
Queen but failed to deprive him of
his second victory.
Newhouser, batted out by the New
Yorkers the first time this year after
taming them five times in a row;
gave over to Walter (Boom-Boom)
Beck in the fifth and Beck handcuf-
fed the champs with three hits the
rest of the way.

CHICAGO, Aug. 22-P)--The chaff was separated from the wheat
today as 26 of 384 amateurs and 25 of 49 women, qualified for 72-hole
medal play finals in the two divisions of the Tam O'Shanter All-American
Heaviest interest, however, centered in tomorrow's qualifying round for
215 professionals, with the 40 low scorers and 40 exempt stars survivingl
for the 72-hole race for golfdom's greatest prize list---$42.500 in war
bonds-which starts Thursday and runs through Sunday.
After yesterday's par-busting brigade of amateurs had finished their
chore with 22 scoring 75 or better, only two of today's 119 simon-purec
entrants could crack into the qualifying fold by coming within three I
strokes of par.
No one came within seven strokes of the brilliant 67 fired yesterday
by Detroit's public links star, Ed Furgol. Two Chicagoans, Louis Esposito1
with 74 and George Kinsman with 75, were the only ones to make the
grade today of the big group left over from yesterday's dawn-to-darkk
Polly Riley, blonde, 18-year-old stenographer from Fort Worth, Texas,

Chicago Lodge, of the Intramural
baseball league, snapped a three game

trounced Colonial House 9-6.
With Jack Heller pitching a good
game and helping his own cause with
a homerun and a single, the boys
from 1530 Washtenaw staged a nine

action take place after two were out.
Featured in this inning were home
runs by Heller and Arnold Linden.
