Fox Helps Carry ChiSox
In Role of 'Little Poison'

CHICAGO (A) - It's been some
20 years since the big leagues had
a "Little Poison" batter, but tiny
Nellie Fox of the Chicago White
Sox is gaining that sobriquet a-
mong American League pitchers.
The record book says Jacob Nel-
son is 5 feet 8 and weighs 150, yet
the belting bantam from St.
Thomas, Pa., won't argue if you
call him smaller on both counts.
The thing that does count is
that Fox carried a .334 batting
average into Tuesday night's game
with the New York Yankees at
Comiskey Park.
He's the main reason the Pale

Construction Firm Remodels
Old, Outmoded Golf Courses

NEW YORK (P)-Is. your golf

f belt a golf ball farther with a six
iron than granddaddy did with a
If it is there's no need to give
it up as- hopeless, says Bill Mit-
chell, who' has had a hand in
building and rebuilding a lot of
golf courses in the past few years.
Same Cost, Better Course
But if you have the land, you
can build a brand.new course for
no, more money than the old one
cost 30 years ago-and it's bound
to be a better course.
Mitchell's construction firm in
Sutton, N.H., has just finished the
swank Pine Hollow Course on
T Long Island.
Since the 1920s, the last big era
of golf course building, the advent
of steelshafted clubs, better golf
balls and the virtual abandoninent
of the pitch-and-run shot have
made doddering old wrecks out

of some courses that once were
among the best.
Most of them can't be length-
ened much because they're hem-
med in by houses and highways.
"Usually you can find a way to
shove the tees back a little," says
Bill, "but where you can't add
length, you can get the same re-
sults by trapping and green de-
Greens, Traps Redone
Old greens, designed for pitch-
and-run approaches, are re-con-
toured and the traps relocated so
they'll catch a poorly played ap-
Starting from scratch, Mitchell
says, a whole course can be built
as cheaply nowadays as in the
1920s because they bring in heavy
construction equipment instead of
using the old pick and shovel and
wheelbarrow methods.
The results are better, too ''be-
cause the big equipment just can't
make poor contours."

Hose have stayed within close
reach of the Yankees, even though
the likes of Minnie Minoso, Jim
Rivera and Jim Busby are trying
to hit .250.
"Lots of Luck"
"I've had lots of luck at bat,
especially on the last road trip,"
said the 27-year-old Fox. "I'm
swinging all the time and I'm
Older fans will recall the iriginal
"Little Poison," Lloyd Waner, who
basked somewhat in the limelight
of his more illustrious brother on
the Pittsburgh Pirates, "Big Poi-
son" Paul.
Hits for Accuracy
Like the Waner' brothers, Fox
spanks the ball with more accuracy
than distance.
Sax General Manager Frank
Lane joshes that the .only thing
that would make Fox slump would
be a flurry of homers. "Then, the
little guy will start flexing his
muscles and nothing will happen,"
quipped Lane.
But Fox counters:
"The day will never come when
little me starts swinging for the
fences. I'm not built like a slugger
and I'm content just to plunk that
ball where they ain't."

Cincinnati's Jablonski Optioned to San Diego

NKW YORK (M-it wasn't tooV
surprising to learn that the Cin-
cinnati club had sent Ray Jablon-
ski to San Diego on option.

and had batted in 76 runs, and
he finished the season with an av-
erage of .296. July 19 this year he
was hitting .234, with only 24 runs
batted in.
What caused this startling re-
versal of form at the plate is a
matter for speculation, and the
best guess we have heard is that
fretting over the criticism of his
fielding finally had affected his
ability as a hitter.
He could field a ball he could
reach, but he couldn't cover much
territory, and once he had gloved

Coleman Suffers
Brain Concussion
CHICAGO () - Jerry Coleman,
New York Yankee second base-
man, suffered a brain concussion
and a possible skull fracture Tues-
day night when struck by a pitch-
ed ball.
Coleman, just returned to the
starting lineup from the disabled
list, was struck in the seventh in-
ning by a pitch thrown by Chi-
cago White Sox pitcher Harry
Byrd. The Yanks went on to beat
the Sox, 4-3.
