PITTSBURGH-The Milwaukee
Braves advanced to within two
games of the league-leading St.
Louis Cardinals last night by beat-
ing the Pittsburgh Pirates, 7-2,
but still dropped to third place.
The Philadelphia Phillies took
over second place by one percent-
age point, defeating Chicago twice.
Johnny Logan drove in three of
the Milwaukee runs, two on a
homer which climaxed a four-run
assault in the fourth inning.
Dodgers 5, Redlegs 4
BROOKLYN - Duke Snider
belted a pair of two-run homers
and Brooklyn's Junior Gilliam and
Cincinnati's Paul Sanchez belted
each other in a pip of a player'
brawl last night as the Dodgers
twice came from behind to defeat'
the Redlegs, 5-4.
Snider's 18th home run hauled
the Brooks from behind for good
to cap the bristling seventh, which
had erupted into a two-fisted belt-
ing bout after Gilliam hit the dirt
ducking one of Sanchez' pitches.
Junior attempted to drag bunt-
it popped foul-on the next pitch,

and into second place in the Na-
tional League pennant race.
In the first game, Chicago's Bob
Rush held the Phillies without a
hit for seven innings only to have
shortstop Chico Fernandez spoil
things with a single to lead off the
Philadelphia eighth.
Then, the 28-yr.-old Sanford
turned back the first 22 Cubs to
face him in the second game as
he worked toward a perfect game.
But Chicago's Dale Long shattered
the rookie's dreams with a broken-
bat single into right with one out
in the eighth.
Giants 1, Cardinals 0
NEW YORK -- Valmy Thomas
hit a homer for the only run of
the game and Johnny Antonelli
pitched five-hit ball yesterday as
the New York Giants defeated the
league-leading St. Louis Cardinals,
1-0.
Antonelli's performance was
matched by Lindy McDaniel, the
21-yr.-old elder of the sensational
McDaniel brothers. Lindy allowed
only three hits in seven innings,
but one of them was Thomas' de-
cisive blow in the sixth

Three Lead
Canadian
Open- Golf
KITCHENER, Ont. (A') - The
scramble for the top spot in the
$25,000 Canadian Open golf tour-
nament became wide-open yester-
day as three players-Henry Ran-
som, Doug Ford and Fred Hawkins
-shared the half-way lead with
six-under par 136's.
Ransom, the 46-yr.-old cattle
rancher who plays out of St. An-
drews, Ill., carded his second
straight 68 with three birdies and
15 pars over the 6,544-yd. course.
Ford, winner of more than $36,000
this year, followed his first-round
69 with a 67 yesterday over the
par 35-36-71 layout.
Blasts 66
The lanky Hawkins, who has
only one major tournament vic-
tory to show for 10 years on the
circuit, blistered the course with a
66 after an opening-day 70,
But it was young Gay Brewer,
Jr. of Cincinnati who provided
most of the excitement with a
record-equalling 65.
The 25-yr.-old former University
of Kentucky student who has been
a pro only a year and a half,
toured the front nine in a record
30 strokes. He came home in 35-
one under par - to match the
course record.
Five One Off
Brewer and four others - Pat
Schwab of Dayton, Ohio; Bill Cas-
per. of Bonita, Calif.; Ed "Porky"
Oliver of Canton, Mass., and Bo
Wininger of Odessa, Tex., were
one stroke off the pace at 137.
Moe Norman of Kitchener was
bunched with John Knight of
Springfield, Ill., and long-hitting,
short-tempered George Bayer of
Los Angeles at 138.

R.eal Golf Fan
BERLIN (P)-U.S. Army Capt.
Bert L. Scoggin last night claimed
a world record in marathon golf
after shooting 260 holes in 18
hours, 55 minutes.
The 38-yr.-old quartermaster of-
ficer from Pomeroy, Wash., started
on the 6,016-yd. Wannsee golf
course at 2 a.m., aided by two
lamps and a flashlight.
He wound up his record-smash-
ing attempt at 8:45 p.m., again
using the lamps.

By The Associated Press
AABO, Finland-On the same
track where Australia's John Lan-
dy set the world mile record of
3:58 three years ago, three Finns
yesterday surpassed the world rec-
ord for the 1,500 meters with times
that approximated a mile in 3:57.
Olavi Salsola won the race in 3
minutes, 40.2 seconds. Olavi Sal-
onen, who was placed second by
the judges, was given the same
time while Olavi Vuorisalo was
third in 3:40.3.
All three were under the listed
world record of 3:40.6, set by Ist-
van Rozsavolgyi of Hungary at
Tata, Hungary, last August. Dan
Waern of Sweden, finished fourth
in 3:40.8.
Salsola's time for 1,500 meters,
about 120 yards less than a mile,
is approximately equilavent to a
mile in 3,:57.
Landy set his world mile record
of 3:58 at Aabo, June 21, 1954.
Since then Landy has run five
mile races under 4:00 and 11 other
milers have broken the 4:00 bar-
rier, but none has equaled Landy's
time.

Good News for Hartack
CHICAGO -Injured Bill Hart-
tack, the nation's leading jockey,
will return to riding a lot sooner
than first expected after a spec-
tacular spill at Arlington Park
damaged his spine.
Latest study of X-rays showed
that a "wing" of a vertebra in the
small part of; his back had been
fractured. At first doctors thought
the vertebra itself had been broken
and said h would be sidelined for
as long as four months.
"After studying new spot pic-
tures, the injury is not real seri-
ous," said Dr. Paul Tobin, one of
the attending physicians at St.
Joseph's Hospital in nearby Elgin.
"I would say he probably would be
back in the - saddle in about 10
days."
The 25-yr.-old rider from Johns-
town, Pa., who has booted home
185 winners this year, was thrown
from his mount in the first race
at Arlington Wednesday.

Daley Denies Rumors
CLEVELAND-William R. Daley,
board chairman of the Cleveland

Indians, last night flatly denied
rumors that the club would be
moved to another city.
Rumors have been published
that the American League baseball
club would be moved to Minne-
apolis because of low attendance
in Cleveland.
Daley, in an "official statement,"
said the management and stock-
holders do not now intend, and
never have contemplated, transfer
of the club to any other city.
He said no representative of the
club has discussed a move with
any other city, and no other city
has approached the Indians man-
agement.
"The officers, directors and
stockholders believe in Cleveland,
and the club is going to stay here,"
he said.
With the Indians threatening to
finish out of the first division for
the first time since 1946, home at-
tendance has dropped off this
season. It may be as low as 700,000
compared with 865,467 last year,
and %620,627 in 1948. a major
league record when the club won
the pennant.

RAY BOONE
... game-tying smash

League standings last night with
two victories over the Cleveland
Indians by identical 5-4 scores.
The first game went 11 innings.
The Indians, who have now lost
seven straight, fell to a fifth place
tie with Detroit, which lost a sin-
gle game to Boston.
In the second game, Baltimore
scored five runs in three innings
off starter Bob Lemon. The veter-
an righthander, suffering from a
strained elbow, gave up three hits
including a homer to Al Pilarcik,
walked two, hit two batters, and
allowed a run to score on a double
steal.
Red Sox 9, Tigers 7
DETROIT - The Boston Red
Sox scored two runs in the 10th
inning, after pitcher Lou Sleater
committed two errors on one play,
and defeated the Detroit Tigers,
9-7, yesterday.
Boston led from the first inning
of the rain-drenched game until
the last of the eighth when Ray
Boone homered for Detroit with a
man on base and knotted the
score at 7-7.

JOHNNY ANTONELLI
... five-hit shutout
then tore into the rookie Redleg
righthander when he rushed off
the mound to field the ball. They
went at it in a punching" tangle
on the baseline with players from
both benches spilling out onto the
field and four or five from each
club squaring off in side fights.
When things apparently had
been quieted, Dodger Charlie Neal
punched Redleg Don Hoak, an
ex-Dodger, and Hoak charged the
Dodger dugout in pursuit of Neal,
who had been swept away by
teammates. -

NEW YORK (A)-Yesterday was
Althea Gibson's day in New York,
and the Wimbledon tennis queen
from Harlem loved it.
"Amazing, wonderful, the great-
est moment of my life," the
gangling, 29-yr.-old garageman's
daughter exclaimed as the big city
paid her tribute with a ticker-tape
parade up Broadway and an offi-
cial welcome at City Hall,
'Long, Long Way'
"It's a long; long way from
143rd street to Wimbledon but you
made it in a dignified way," said
Mayor Robert Wagner.
The Negro girl, first of her race
to win a singles title at Wimble-
don, was almost overcome with
emotion. But she collected herself
and replied:
"There is no greater honor than
I am receiving today. God grant
that I wear the crown I won with
dignity and defend it with the
highest honor."

Ceremonies completed, Miss Gib-
son now must pack her rackets
and head for Chicago where she
will compete in the National Clay
Courts Championship, opening
Monday.
Thousands Cheer
In an open car, Althea swept up
Broadway from Bowling Green
while thousands, lining the parade
route and leaning out skyscraper
windows, cheered and tossed down
ticker tape and bits of paper.
During the 15-minute ride to
City Hall, Althea turned back to
smile and wave at her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Daniel Gibson; her
fiance, William Darben, and her
two sisters, Lillian and Anna, who
rode in cars behind her.
More than 1,000 persons jammed
in front of the city hall steps to
hear Mayor Wagner term Miss
Gibson a credit to the nation and
"the greatest women's tennis play-
er in the world."

for your enjoyment.
