Cincinnati Releases Neun;
Bucky Walters Takes Over
BROOKLYN, N Y., ,Aug. 6-(IP)-Johnny Neun, manager of the
Cincinnati Reds, was released tonight and Bucky Walters, one-time
pitching great, was named as leader for the remainder of the season.
Neun with Reds 1 Years
Neun has been with the club for the past year and a half. The
club recently ha," had a losing streak but defeated the league-leading
Boston Braves three out of four games in a series that ended only last
night

LONDON, Aug. 6--(AP)-America furnished the 1948 Olympics its
best all-around athlete-decathlon winner Bob Mathias of Tulare,
Calif.-today and her gifted water stars splashed to three more cham-
pionships in another glorious day for the Red, White and Blue.
These triumphs, coupled with a pair of sensational successes
on the part of sturdy Europeans, headlined the seventh day of
this international competition, staged in a cold drizzle.
Mathias, a 17-year-old high school lad who ripples with educated
muscles, wound up a rigorous two- /

Field To Win All-American

It was at Walters own sugges-
tion that his appointment be only
for the remainder of the season.
Fourth Manager To Go
Neun is the fourth National
League manager to be dropped
this year. On Friday, July 16, Ben
Chapman was ousted at Philadel-
phia only a few hours after Mel
Ott's release as boss of the New
York Giants was announced.
Leo Durocher was shipped to
the Giants by Brooklyn and Burt
Shotton was recalled from semi-
retirement to direct the Dodgers.
The Reds have won 44 and lost
56 under Neun this season. Much
was expected of them this year
but the entire team showed the ef-
fects of an injury to Ewell Black-
well, generally rated the loop's
best pitcher.
Came to Reds After Yaunks
Neun came to the Reds after
directing the New York Yankees
for a short period at the close of
1946: Prior to that he had bossed
Yankee Farms at Newark and
Kansas City.
As a player Neun was with De-
troit and the Boston Nationals.
While at Detroit he gained fame
for an unassisted triple play
against Cleveland on May 31, 1927.
Walters came to the Philadel-
phia Phillies as an infielder and
was remodeled into a pitcher

there. He was traded to the Reds
in 1938.
Announcement Made Before Game
The announcement of Neun's
release was made prior to to-
night's game between the Reds
and Dodgers at Ebbets Field.
Reporters were handed a writ-
ten statement by Warren Cdles,
president of the club which read
as follows:
"Johnny Neun has been re-
leased as manager of the Reds
and Bucky Walters has been
named to pilot the club for the re-
mainder of the 1948 season. Limit-
ing the term to this year was at
Bucky's own suggestion and with
a mutual understanding regard-
ing the future.

Giants Stop
Buc Rally, 7-~6
NEW YORK, Aug. 6--(AP)-The
New York Giants staved off a last
ditch rally to nose out the Pitts-
burgh Pirates, 7-6, today and end
a three game losing streak.
Ray Poat had the Pirates tamed
on six hits and enjoyed a 7-3
lead going into the ninth inning
when an error by Bill Rigney
started the Pirates on a three run
rally.
Rigney booted Ralph Kiner's
NEW YORK, Aug. 6-(A')-
Lightweight champion Ike Wil-
liams of Trenton, N.J., agreed
today to defend his 135-pound
title against Jesse Flores of
Stockton, Calif., in a 15-round
bout at the Yankee Stadium,
Sept. 22, under promotion of
the Twentieth Century Sport-
ing Club.

day, ten-sport grind with 7,139
points.
He started early in the morning
with the 110-meter hurdles, fol-
lowed with the discus and pole
vault and finished the last two
events-the javelin and 1,500
meter run-in semi-darkness.
Dog-track lights had to be
turned on for the decathlon
hardies after their competition
ran into the late evening. Yes-
terday's events were the 100
meter run, broad jump, shot put,
high jump and 400 meter run.
Young Mathias' amazing pro-
ficiency in many athletic lines
provided only one of the thrills
for 55,000 fans who suffered
through the dismal, drenching day
at Wembley Stadium.
The 30-year-old Dutch mother,
Mrs. Fannie Blankers-Koen, made
Olympic history by winning the
200-meter dash for her third
championship of the games. Swe-
den's indefatigable Henri Eriksson
scored a smashing upset to prevail
in the gruelling 1,500 meter run.
Another housewife - pretty,
brunette Mrs. Victoria Manalo
Draves of Pasadena, Calif.-also
wrote a new chapter in the
Olympic books when she won
the women's high board diving
competition and set off a fast
string of American water tri-
umphs.
This made an unprecedented
women's diving sweep for the 23-
year-old Californian of Filipino-
English parentage, who earlier
had taken top honors in the
springboard. Patricia Ann Elsener,
18, of San Francisco was runner-
up in the tower dive.
The men have won every event
in which they've competed-six
in a row-and the women have
taken down three crowns.
Stack splashed the 100-meter
back stroke in 1:06.4, beating
out teammate Robert Cowell of
Pittsburgh, a Navy ensign.
The 22-year-old Miss Curtis was,
the star in the 400-meter relay

conquest as the Americans won
the event in the Olympic record
time of 4 minutes, 29.2 seconds.
There was no official timing of
Miss Curtis' 100-meter closing
drive but unofficial clockers set
her time at 1:04.2 for the 100
meter leg, considerably below the
women's world record.
Other members of the team
are Marie Corridon of Norwalk,
Conn., Thelma Kalama, a Ha-
waiian, and Brenda Helser of
Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The three U.S. representatives-
Joe Verdeur of Philadelphia, Keith
Carter of Purdue University and
Bob Sohl of the University of
Michigan-qualified for the finals
of the 200-meter breast stroke, to
be contested tomorrow with an
American victory virtually assured.
Verduer won his semifinal heat
in 2:40.7; beating the old Olympic
record but falling short of his
existing mark of 2:40 flat estab-
lished yesterday.
Carter was second to Verduer,
and Sohl finished third in an-
other heat, won by Ahmed Kan-
dill of Egypt in 2:43.7.
The ,. towering, sharpshooting
U.S. basketball team rolled over
Peru, 61-33, making a sweep of its
five games in the round robin pre-
liminaries and going into the
championship tournament. The
team will play Uruguay in the first
round Monday.
The U.S. yachtsmen scored
well again in the congested
Torquay Harbor, winning the
star class race and finishing
thirdk in two others. The Amer-
icans lead team-placings in two
classes-the star and interna-
tional six meter-and have a
good chance to win the overall
championships, with three races
remaining.
Two U.S. rowing crews-the pair
oars with and. without coxswain
-were eliminated in second
chance heats at Henley on the
Thames but the Americans are
still well represented in this phase
of competition.

CHICAGO, Aug. 6-{P)-Bobby
Locke of South Africa, needing a
par 4 on the last hole to tie, blew
up for a 6 today to pass the $5,000
Tam O'Shanter jackpot to Lloyd
Mangrum with a 72-hole tally of
277-11 under par.
Mangrum was an earlier fin-
isher with a 33-35-68, four under
the regulation. It looked as if he
had the title, his fifth tourney
win of the season, in his pocket.
Locke, who started the last
round with 208 for a one stroke
lead over Mangrum, made the turn
in 35 After faltering with a three-
putt five on the 12th he reached
the last three holes needing two
pars and a birdie to tie.
Pars 16th
On the 215-yard 16th, Locke
blasted out of a trap and dropper
a 10 footer to salvage a standard
3. On the 17th he rammed n a
five foot putt for a birdie 3.
While the crowd of about 6,000
flanked the 18th fairway and
green, Locke calmly smashed a
straight 270 drive. He had a sim-
ple 140 yard approach over a

creek fronting the green. He tried
to fade a slight hook onto the
rolling carpet-one of his typi-
cal approach shots-but the ball
caught the upper branches of a
tree and fell back into the water.
He took a six for a fourth round
71 and a total of 279, two strokes
behind Mangrum.
Year's Greatest Surprise
Locke's miscalculation undoubt-
edly was one of golf's greatest sur-
prises of the season. If it had been
anyone but Locke the result would
not have been so startling.
BULLETIN

Delanay Curran of Jackson
