Chisox Beat Yan
Senators Down Indians
For Fifth Straight Win

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Dick Donovan
notched his eighth straight vic-
tory, although chased by a five-
run New York seventh, as the
White Sox wrapped up two early
four-run innings to defeat the
Yankees, 8-6, and trim their first-
place margin to two games last
night.
The Sox were held hitless after
the third.
A throng of 36,869 saw fast-ball-
Ing Bob Turley fail as a Yankee
starter. He faced only five batters
in the first inning and was charg-
ed with his eighth setback against
11 victories.
Donovan needed able help from
rubber-armed Sandy Consuegra,
who finally throttled the Yankee
threat,
Billy Pierce had to rescue Con-
suegra in a one-run Yankee ninth.

tory in a row.
Both starting pitchers were
chased. Cleveland's Early Wynn

ond ga of a twi-night bill, ex-
tending heir current win streak

BROOKLYN - The Chicago

combe nailed his 16th victory with
a two-hitter and five Dodger home
runs as the National League lead-
ers romped 10-1 in the opener.
The split left the Dodgers 13%
games ahead of runnerup Milwau-
kee, which lost at Pittsburgh.
Duke Snider, who said he felt
weak as he returned from a virus
bout, and Don Zimmer each belted
a pair of homers in the opener.

Match Duel
Horse Race
A rranged
Nashua, Swaps Pitted
In All Star Attraction
CHICAGO (AP)-American rac-
ing's all star attraction-a match
duel between Swaps and Nashua
at a mile and a quarter-was set
yesterday for Washington Park on
Aug. 31, with the winner to grab
$100,000.
The match race between turf-
dom's 3-year-old stars was an-
nounced yesterday by Benjamin
F. Lindheimer, director of both
Washington Park and Arlington
Park, after he had conferred with
Rex Ellsworth, owner of Swaps,
and William Woodward Jr., own-
er of Nashua.
Excellent Win Records
Swaps is undefeated as a 3-
year-old. Nashua's only loss came
when he was beaten by Swaps in
the Kentucky Derby.
Nashua made a successful bow
to Chicago racing circles last Sat-
urday when he won the $148,500
Arlington Classic.
In announcing the match race,
Lindheimer said that in addition
to the $100,000 cash to the winner,
the winning owner will receive a
gold cup and special awards will
go to the winning jockey and
trainer.
Shoemaker vs. Arcaro
The race also will match Willie
Shoemaker, currently America's
leading rider, up on Swaps, and
veteran jockey Eddie Arcaro, who
piloted Nashua to a close victory
over Traffic Judge Saturday.
Nashua skyrocketed to fifth
place in the all-time money win-
ning ranks by adding a tidy $91,-
675 to his bank account with
Saturday's ArlingtonClassic tri-
umph. He now has earned $782,-
565 in winning 14 out of 17 races.
Swaps has won seven times in
seven starts this year, earning
$328,950. Now in his second racing
season, he has won 10 out of 13
starts.

Snead Leads PGA Qualifiers
With Five-Under-Par Round

DETROIT (P) - Sam Snead
snatched the qualifying lead in the
PGA Championship yesterday then
chuckled:
"I holed more putts today than
I have in five tournaments."
It was a familiar story as the
White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.,
slammer, a three-time winner of
the PGA title and twice medalist,
fired a five-under-par 34-32-66 to
lead the way after the first 18
holes of the 36-hole qualifying
test.
Putting Miseries Gone
Snead, who often complains
about putting miseries, has been
having them for the past few
weeks.
But yesterday he had eight one-
putt greens and missed only a few
short ones over the 6,701-yard par
35-36-71 Meadowbrook course as
he raced in to take a one-stroke
lead over three players who ap-
peared to have it all wrapped up
for the day.
Three 67's Registered
Skee Riegel, 1947 U.S. Amateur
champion who now is a "home"
pro at Ithan, Pa., and touring pros
Doug Ford and Jackie Burke, both
of whom register from Kiamesha
Lake, N.Y., all had shot 67's.
Riegel and Ford are making
their first appearances in the PGA
championship, which is restricted
to golfers who have been members
of the organization for five years.
Two at 68
Another stroke back at 68 came
two more of the stay-at-home
golfers who make up the bulk of
the PGA membership- English-'
born Errie Ball of Oak Park, Ill.,
and 36-year-old Don Fairfield of
Casey, Ill.
A whole flock of 69's and 70's
turned up on the scoreboard.
Snead's playing partners, Ed
"Porky" Oliver of Lemont, Ill.,
and Eric Monti of Los Angeles,
finished in the 69 bracket with
Masters champion Cary Middle-
coff, Tommy Bolt, Lew Worsham
and a couple of others.
Jack Fleck, U.S. Open cham-

pion, was in the midst of another
big group of 72s.
There'll be another qualifying
round Thursday, after which the
63 low scorers and defending
champion Chick Harbert will
buckle down to the serious part of
the competition-the match play.
Select Boxing
Hall of Fame
NEW YORK (P)-Nat Fleischer,
boxing's indefatigable historian, is
taking his second annual poll to
determine which ex-fighters shall
be admitted to the boxing Hall of
Fame.
Fleischer, who lives and breathes
the sport, is editor of Ring maga-
zine, and as such his periodic rat-
ings of current fighters are accept-
ed as final.
His Hall of Fame idea was origi-
nated last year. Selections are
confined to three groups:
Pioneers, Oldtimers, Moderns
The pioneers, selected by the
directors from a list submitted to
them; the oldtimers, elected by a
committee of 20 who have been
writing boxing for 35 years or
more, and a so-called modern di-
vision for boxers of the last 35
years, and chosen by current news-
papermen and radio and TV com-.
mentators.
Fleischer asks the voters to list
10 men, and those names appear-
ing on a minimum of 75 per cent
of the ballots are elected. Last
year the successful candidates
were Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis and
Henry Armstrong, all of whom
Wvere practically automatic choices.
