the mile and five-eighths distance
for the first time in his brilliant
career and came home in a clock-
ing of 2:381/,. He led all the way.
Ringing down the curtain on
Hollywood Park's summer meeting

and bringing a roar of applause
from a crowd estimated at 41,500

prize of her career in the start
of the Women's National Open.
The young pro from Asheville,
N.C., and veteran Patty Berg of
St. Andrews, ll., were closest to
anything resembling a favorite for
the 72-hole medal tournament,
and many circuit regulars were
leaning toward Mrs. Hagge.

Greenberg Denies Report
CLEVELAND () - Cleveland
General Manager Hank Green-
berg yesterday denied a report
he had offered Leo Durocher the
manager's job of the Indians and
said he was perfectly satisfied

ger, Al Lopez.

reply to a story from New York
that he had spoken to a mutual
friend of both his and Durocher's
while in New York last week and
requested the friend, to "feel out"
Durocher whether he'd be inter-
ested in piloting the Indians.

CUTS ENGINE SIZE LIMIT:
Indianapolis Speedway Changes Rules

INDIANAPOLIS (A') - The In-
dianapolis Motor Speedway yester-
day cut the size of race car engines
allowed in the 500-mile race, hop-
ing to check further deadly in-
creases in speed.
"From the standpoint of safety,
we believe the use of smaller en-
gines will serve as a check on the
steadily increasing rate of speed
New Star
OTTAWA (P) - The Rock-
cliffe Lawn Tennis Club re-
cently ran short of women en-
tries for a round robin tourna-
ment.
Foreign Secretary L. B. Pear-
son of Canada was drafted,
along with others, to play in the
women's section. Pearson won
the prize for best man in the
women's list.,
attained in recent years," said
Anton J. Tony Hulman, Speed-
way president.
Vukovich Killed
Bill Vukovich, two-time winner
of the Memorial Day race, was
killed while leading the 1955 race.
Ten cars crashed in this year's
race, injuring five persons.
Hulman said specifications for
the 1957, 1958 and 1959 races are
being changed to limit the piston
displacement in non-supercharged
engines to 256 cubic inches. The
limit since 1938 has been 274,
about the same as in popular-
priced commercial automobiles.
The limit on supercharged en-
gnes was cut from 183 to 1711.
Diesel engines were left with a
limit of 335, and turbine engines
continue without limit.
No Shdrtage of Parts
Hulman said the decision to
change specifications, made tenta-
tively several days ago, became
official on the strength of assur-
ance that there will be no shortage
of new engine parts.
Under the just-abandoned speci-
fications, race speeds have climbed
.. . . . .

from 117.2 miles an hour in 1938
to 128.49 this year, pushed up by
engine and chassis design refime-
mnents.
Winner Pat Flahefty's record-
breaking 10-mile qualification
speed this year was 145.596, and
speeds on the straightaway have
been running up to an estimated
170.
Speed Reducton Not Promised
Hulman did not say whether he
expects the cut in engine sizes to
actually reduce racing speeds.
Specification changes are noth-
ing new at the Speedway. Starting
with an engine size limit of 600
cubic inches in 1911, the track
management has changed the lim-
its eight times.
Temporary reductions of about
5 miles an hour resulted from a
series of drastic cuts in engine
size in the 1920s, cutting the limit
as low as 91.5 in 1926.
Undersize Engine Wins
However, Lee Wallard won the
1951 race with an undersize en-
gine of 241 cubic inches, outrun-
ning a field of case with engines
near the size limit.
Lou Meyer and the late Wilbur

Shaw won in the mid-30's with
255-cubic-inch engines while the
track limit was up to 366.
Hulman said he hopes the move
to smaller engines can bring world-
wide standardization of race car
engines by 1960. The Indiaapolis
race has had larger size limits
than foreign tracks.

TORONTO (A')-Ancient Archie
Moore, number one claimant to
the world heavyweight title, found
James J. Parker an easy target
last night and turned the lanky
Canadian's face into a bloody
mass to win on a technical knock-
out in 2:02 of the ninth round at
Maple Leaf Baseball Stadium.
Parker at 211 1/4 had a 24%-
pound weight edge on Moore who
weighed 186 1/2.
Moore, self-crowned heavy-
weight "champ" since Rocky Mar-
ciano retired, toyed with the un-
ranked Toronto giant. Although
he never dropped him, Moore had
sliced Parker's left eye and had
drawn a bucket of blood before it
was stopped.
As Moore rained heavy punches
on Parker, who was pinned in
