'Very Firm' Protest on Anti-Pro Pledge

By The Associated Press
BROOKLYN - Don Newcombe
fired his second straight shutout
and Carl Furillo and Roy Campa-
nella smashed home runs yester-
clay- as the surging Brooklyn
Dodgers whipped Milwaukee, 3-0,
to move to within two games of
the league-leading Braves.
Newcombe allowed only four
hits in recording his 16th victory
of the season. It gave the defend-
ing world champions three out of
four in the vital set with the
Braves, who were held without
an earned run in the last 25 in-
nings of the series.
Campanella wrapped up the
game with a two-run homer in

Redlegs 10, Giants 2
NEW YORK - Stan Palys had
a perfect day at bat for Cincin-
nati with five hits while Ray Ja-
blonski slammed a bases loaded
homer as the second-place Red-
legs thumped the New York Gi-
ants, 10-2, to move within one
game of the National League lead.
Back-to-back home runs by Ja-
blonski and Palys in a big six-run
seventh inning highlighted a Cin-
cinnati rally that brought victory
and gave the Redlegs a split in
the four-game series.
Cards 7, Pirates 5
PITTSBURGH - The St. Louis
Cardinals clobbered Pittsburgh
pitching for four runs in the third
inning and three runs in the
eighth, including a home run by
Stan Musial, as the Cards handed
the Pirates their eighth consecu-
tive defeat, 7-5.
The Cards hammered Pirate ace
Bob Friend for four runs with
seven hits in the third.
They got three more in the
eighth when Musial homered for
one marker, and winning pitcher
Herm Wehmeier singled in two
White Sox 5, Senators 4
CHICAGO - Les Moss' home
run with two men on in the sixth
inning gave the Chicago White
Sox a 5-4 victory over the Wash-
ington Senators.
A walk to Larry Doby and a
single by Walt Dropo preceded
Moss' homer off Bob Wiesler, the
starting and losing pitcher. The
Sox scored their other runs in the
third on a double by Luis Apari-
cio, a walk to Nellie Fox and a
double by Doby.
Ellis Kinder, 42-year-old relief
pitcher, received credit for the
victory, his 100th as a major

..KANSAS CITY -- Harry Simp-
son homered with one aboard and
Enos Slaughter hit a pinch single
to drive in another run and give
the Kansas City Athletics a 3-2
victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
Slaughter's pinch hit accounted
for the A's third run in their
three-run seventh.

CHICAGO (A)-The president of
the United States Olympic Asso-
ciation yesterday registered a
"very firm" protest with the In-
ternational Olympic Committee
against its startling anti-pro
pledge for Olympic contestants.
K. L. "Tug" Wilson, U. S. Olym-
pic chief, said he did this in a
conference with another Chicago-
an, Avery Brundage, who is I.O.C.
president and apparently a prime
supporter of the pledge.
Rule Just Publicized
The new rule, adopted in Janu-
ary but first given wide publicity
Wednesday in an Australian dis-
patch, will require that all en-
tries in the 1956 Olympic at Mel-
bourne must sign this pledge:
"I, the undersigned, declare on
my honor that I am and intend
to remain an amateur and fulfill
the condtiions stipulated by the
Olympic rules."
Brundage said he would issue a
statement for release in Sunday
papers and his only comment
yesterday was to assure Wilson
that the pledge would not harass
Olympic contestants who plan to
become physical education teach-
ers or coaches.
Games in Late Fall
The games are set for Nov. 22-
Dec. 8 at Melbourne.
"This morning, I registered a
very firm protest wtih the Execu-
tive Committee of the I. O. C.
against enforcement of the rule,
stating I believed that further
study should be given to all of

DETROIT (P) -- Former Olym-

cause he has been drafted into

Konno, who won the 1,500 me-
ter championship at Helsinki in
1952, said his draft board had or-
dered him to report for induciton
Monday. The swim trials begin
Konno said he had asked his
draft board whether induction
could be delayed, but hadn't yet
received a reply.

High-Sounding in Principle
The general reaction, was that
the new Olympic pledge is high-
sounding in principle, but ques-
tionable in practice,
E. K. Billy Holt, technical di-
rector of the 1956 games, said
yesterday at Melbourne he was
"a little bit puzzled how the In-
ternational Olympic Committee is
going to apply the rule."
Apparently, the pledge was in-
cluded so as to halt amateur ath-
letes from using the Olympics as
a springboard to fame and fortune
in professional careers. This has
often been the case in the past.

Study Shows Milwaukee's
Improvement Under Haney

Associated Press Sports Writer
NEW YORK -- We have been
doing a little checking to find out
how the Milwaukee Braves have
been doing since they reopened
under new management June 16.
Fred Haney took over as man-
ager June 15 and Charley Grimm
went fishing, and at the time
Milwaukee had won 24 and lost 22
for a .522 average.
Then came the astonishing 11-
game winning streak. When it
ended June 26 the record was 35
victories and 22 defeats for a .614
As of now the Braves are leading
re Standings

the league with 57-37-.606, which
means that since the winning bingej
ended they have played pretty con-
sistent baseball, traveling along at
a .595 pace with 22 victories and
15 defeats. That puts you right
into pennant contention any year.
Since Haney took over, Milwau-
kee has been playing at an overall
pace of .687,
The above figures might seem to
put Grimm in a bad light, but we
have no intention of doing that.
We're just stating facts, and there
is no way of proving that the sud-
den improvement of the club
wouldn't have been noted had
Grimm remained as pilot.
Due to Start Winning
The Braves were due to start
winning. They were too good a
team to be hovering around the
.500 mark.
Haney, during the early winning
streak after he took over, dis-
claimed credit for the upsurge, say-
ing he was doing nothing that
Grimm wouldn't have done,
Which may have been true.
Sometimes, for some unaccount-
able reason, a team shows an
abrupt reversal of form-for the
better-when a new manager is at
the helm.
