The New York Yankees appar-
ently made a good move in bring-
ing up Eli Grba from Richmond
of the International League. So
did the Chicago Cubs, who plucked
southpaw Art Ceccarelli from Fort
Worth of the American Assn.
Grba, a righty, beat the White
Sox 6-4 in his only start while
Ceccarelli, who was only 4-7 with
Fort Worth, has won two games
for the Cubs, one a. shutout over
Cincinnati. He has yet to lose.
The pitching-weak Reds, with
only Don Newcombe able to go
the distance consistently, got a
route-going Job from Jay Hook
last Saturday. Hook, who beat the
Cubs 5-1, was recalled from Se-
attle of the Pacific Coast League.
The Cleveland Indians also
dipped into the Coast League,
promoting veteran outfielder El-
mer Valo and pitcher Larry
Locke. Valo is one-for-five as a
pinch-hitter and Locke's record is

Illinois yawl on her maiden voy-
age won the Chicago to Mackinac
Yacht Race yesterday on the
basis 'of corrected time.
Although the 32-foot Feather
took 63 hours 48 minutes and 3
seconds to make the 333-mile
cruise up Lake Michigan, her
handicap made her corrected time
51 hours 9 seconds - best in the
fleet of 73 boats.
The brand new Class D boat,
which an observer said looked
like "an oversized dinghy" in the
line of ships that stretched from
this resort island in the straits
of Mackinac, had been delivered
by a Florida boat builder to own-
er W. J. Peacock of Evanston, Ill.,
only two days before Saturday's
start of the race. Her winning
time, however, was almost 20
hours off the record set in 1911
by the schooner Amorita.
First across the finish line early
yesterday was Ramon Brotz' 87-
foot Sabre, sailing out of Sheboy-
gan, Wis. The Sabre, one of the
largest yachts in the race, took 61
hours 4 seconds to finish. Her
corrected time 'was 63 hours 33
minutes 5 seconds.
Chicago yachts won all the
other divisions.
The Taltonah, sixth boat to
cross the finish line, was the Class
A winner with a corrected time of
54 hours 48 'minutes 55 seconds.
Her actual, time was 62:02.29.
The Class B winner was Barb
with elapsed and corrected times
of 62:26.42 and 52:47.31.
Aura was Class C winner with
an elapsed time of 63:11.46 cor-
rected to 52:47.31. Her actual
time was 63:34.58.
There was one minor mishap in
the race. The Hornet, owned by
Walter Heimichem of Chicago,
ran aground on rocks 35' ,miles
from the finish line. She was
pulled free by the Coast Guard
and finished the race under power.
Ideal weather provided a pic-
ture finish to the race although
the fleet had been slowed out of
Chicago by light winds.
