Hardrocks, Senior Meds Play to Scoreless

Tie

CLASSvFIEDS]

Only Two Hits Allowed
In Contest for I-M Title

Yanks, Braves Drop Fourth in Row,
But Closest Contenders Fail To Gain

Pitching usually makes the dif-
ference, but not when there's no
difference in the pitching.
That was the story last night
on South Ferry Field as the Hard-
rocks and Senior Meds battled for
the Intramural softball title in
one of the greatest hurling duels
in recent I-M history.
Bob Visser, author of several
no-hitters for the Meds during the
regular summer schedule, hooked
up with Don Bosker of the Hard-
rock for eight scoreless innings be-
fore darkness forced the game
to be called.
It took a toss of a coin to give
the Meds possession of the I-M
trophy, but both squads were de-
clared co-champions of summer
I-M softball.

If a choice had to be made,
Bosker would receive the greater
glory in last night's dual master-
piece. The Hardrock flinger, who
had lost only once this season to
League Two's champion Hornets,
allowed only three men to reach
base - all in the first inning ---
as he permitted no hits to the
undefeated Meds.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT -- Charley Maxwell
got four hits and Al Kaline and4
Ray Boone three apiece last night
as the Detroit Tigers dealt the
New York Yankees their fourth
straight loss, 10-4, before 43,478
spectators.
The Tigers drilled out 14 hits{
and Yankee pitchers walked 11.
Coming back strong after Thurs-
day's 18-3 thumping by Boston,
the Tigers assaulted the league-
leaders for five runs that decided
the issue in the fourth inning.
Four of them were unearned as
the result of an error by catcherI

Forrest Crocker was hit by one
of Bosker's pitches as leadoff
batter in the game. After Mary
Diskin became the first of Bos-
ker's five strikeout victime, Vis-
ser was safe on an error by sec-
ond baseman Fred Brower. Both
runners advanced after two were
out when Dick Aster walked to
load the bases.
But Bosker struck out right
fielder Bob Curhan to end the
inning and hurled perfect ball
for the next seven frames.
Visser gave up only two hits to
bring his spectacular record to
five hits allowed in 38 innings.
In the first inning Roger Post-
mus singled and five stanzas la-
ter Bill Kooistra registered the
second single off Visser.
Hardrocks' major threats, how-
ever, came without benefit of hits
in the second and eighth frames.
Bosker led off the second by
reaching base on first baseman
Dick Aster's error. He moved to
second when Zeets Harkema
walked. Then Visser bore down to
strike out Roger Nykamp and
Fred Brower with Howie Rienstra
popping out to catcher Bob Gold-
man for the other out.
In the last half of the eighth
Brower walked and Armo Start
was hit by a pitched ball with
one away. A double steal moved
both runners into scoring posi-
tion, but Klooistra struck out and
Postmus lined out to Crocker to
end the game.

BERLIN OP)-Pvt. Willie J. Wil-

sprinter, yesterday bettered the
world's record for the 100-meter
dash at an international military
track meet in Hitler-built Olympic
Stadium.
Williams ran the distance in

by Jesse Owens of Ohio State, at
Chicago on June 20, 1936.

for the 1,500-meter run yesterday
with a clocking of 3 minutes, 40.6

The listed world mark is 3:41.8
by Rudolf Harbig of Germany but
has been bettered in recent
months by two other Hungarians,
Sandor Iharos and Laszlo Tabori,

All have been clocked in 3:40.8.

What's Wrong

CHICAGO (P) - The Big Ten
opens an important business ses-
sion today which may lead to a
standardization of aid to athletes.
Faculty representatives and ath-
letic directors will hear a report
by a special committee which for
seven months has been studying

MacKAY TO PLAY:
Davis Cup Squad Takes
Two Matches from Mexico

RYE, N. Y. (A)) - The United
States won both matches in yes-
terday's American Zone Davis
Cup finals with Mexico without
the loss of a set.
In the opener, Vic Seixas of
Philadelphia d e f e a t e d Mario
Llamas, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. In the sec-
ond, Ham Richardson of West-
field, N. J., measured Francisco
Contreras, 6-3, 6-4,6-4.
The Yanks can clinch the zone'
title by winning today's doubles.
That will sew up the best-of-five
matches.
Capt. Bill Talbert of the U.S.
team said he would play Michi-
gan's Barry. MacKay and Sam
Giammalva of Houston against
the probable Mexican team of
Llamas and Contreras.
MacKay, Big Tenr champion in
1956, is in his second Davis Cup
matches. Last week he split in
two battles against the Canadians
in the American Zone semi-finals.
He teamed with Ron Holmberg of
Brooklyn to win a doubles match,
but lost in singles for his coun-
try's onlydefeat in the best-of-
five competition.
For Giammalva, a collegiate
with Giants?-

star at Texas, this will be the
first experience in the annual
quest of the Davis Cup. He, Mac-
Kay and Holmberg are three of
several new players enlisted by the
U. S. to add ,youth to its squad.
If it passes the American tests
this weekend, the U. S. will prob-
ably resort more to its experi-
enced players as it gets closer
to a showdown match with Aus-
tralia, current Cupholder. The
winning American team will next
meet Italy.
Mayer Leadsr
Golf Tourney
CHICAGO g h- Dick Mayer
traveled through the sogginess
and gloamin' for his second
straight 69 yesterday to take the
second round lead of the All-
American golf tournament from
early finisher Julius Boros.
Nearly four hours after Boros
had raced a rain storm through
the last hole for a snug 33-34-67
and 36-hole tally of 139, the 33--j
year-old Mayer unloaded birdies
on two of the final hour holes.
Jim Hiskey, member of the Uni-
versity of Houston's NCAA cham-
pionship golf team, threaded his
second straight 73 for 146 and a
five stroke lead in the men's am-
ateur section.
Patty Berg moved into a tie
with Kathy Cornelius, the recent
U. S. Women's Open champion,
for the women's pro lead with a
sizzling 72 to lock at 151 - one
stroke under women's par.
Wanda Sanches of Baton Rouge,
La., kept her lead among women
amateurs with 157.

athletic practices in the Confer-
ence.
Critical Report
Commissioner K. L. "Tug" Wil-
son has commented that the re-
port, thoroughly covering recruit-
ing and financial aid policy, is
"extremely candid and in the
main critical of present practices."
Although scheduled since the
Conference's May session, the
meeting comes on the heels of a
Look Magazine article this week
which purported to expose irreg-
ular Big Ten athletic practices.
Big Ten officials have asserted
the Look article distorted the legal
policy of helping athletes the Con-
ference has followed for the past'
decade.
May Set Uniform Policy
Because of different interpreta-
tion given to the unearned aid
stipulations in the conference, Big
Ten officials this weekend may
strive for a uniform method of
granting aid and controlling in-
school jobs of athletes.
. The Big Ten has claimed that
its present policy, despite short-
comings, has eliminated "under-
the-table" aid of athletes by
booster and alumni groups, a
practice which has caused a tur-
moil in the Pacific Coast Con-
ference.
Wilson said there will be no an-
nouncement on this weelkend's
session until Sunday's closing ses-
sion.
The committee reporting on
current athletic practices is com-
posed of faculty representatives
Leslie W. Scott of Michigan State
and Verne Freeman of Purdue;
and athletic directors H. 0. "Fritz"
Crisler of Michigan and Ivy Wil-
liamson of Wisconsin.

Doctors Rule
,Delay of Fight
For Patterson
NEW YORK (M) - The heavy-
weight title fight between Archie
Moore and Floyd Patterson won't
be held until October at the earli-
est it was decided yesterday after
a panel of doctors examined fresh
x-rays of Patterson's healing right
hand.
The panel expressed unanimous
agreement that Patterson "was
not in the position as of today"
to go through with a Sept. 25 bout
with Moore, the light-heavyweight,
king and number one heavyweight.
The decision was announced by
Julius Helfand, chairman of the
State Athletic Commission. Hel-
fand said the doctors were opti-
mistic, however, that the 21-year-
old Brooklyn boxer would be able
to fight in October. Another ex-
amination will be made in four
weeks.
Patterson broke the fourth met-
acarpal bone behind the knuckle
of his right hand while defeating
Hurricane Jackson in a heavy-
weight elimination bout June 8.

Architecture Auditorium 50c

By WHITNEY MARTIN
Associated Press Sports Writer
NEW YORK P)-,-We had gone
up to the Polo Grounds to see
what ailed the New York Giants,
and not because we wanted to be
alone, as someone suggested.
The Giants are housekeeping in
the National League cellar, and
even their most ardent fans are
evasive and quickly change the
subject when you try to get an
idea as to what is wrong.
Rigney Blamed
The answers you do get range
from Bill Rigney to Bill Rigney,
as in a case such as this the simple
solution is to blame the manager.
He may be doing a job which
should rate him as manager of
the year, but that makes no dif-
ference.
"Rigney isn't to blame," a
member of the club's official fam-
ily we encountered said emphatic-
ally. "He can't get out and hit for
the players. And they can't hit
for themselves, for that matter.
"We've had good pitching on
the whole. The fielding is good
and we have plenty of speed.

The Giants were playing the
Cincinnati Redlegs in the fourth
game of their series. The New
Yorkers had taken two of the first
three games, which was something
of a minor miracle as the Redlegs
were battling for first place and
had a chance to get up there as
the Brooklyn Dodgers were knock-
ing off the Milwaukee Braves.
Revert to Form
In this fourth game, though, the
Giants reverted to form, and
their efforts to push across runs
verged on the pathetic. A tall,
angular pitcher named Tom Ack-
er with a tricky sidearm delivery
was tieing them into knots so that
when they did by chance hit theI
ball they were quite apologeticI
about it.
The Redlegs romped home, 10 to
2, the margin being a fair indi-
cation of the difference in thej
power of the two clubs.
It is extremely doubtful that
Rigney had anything to do with
the defeat, although he'll be
blamed. He was there, wasn't he?
