Previously the'v started the season with a 3-2 win lost three in a row, beat Man- kato S-6. and then lost five in a row Of their first 12 league games, seven were decided by one-run margins and the Chiefs won three of those. Manager Ches W.eczorek's outfit, bolstered since the addi- tion of Outfielder Bill Fuchs, will get into action tonight too. The Chiefs will play host to Black River Falls at Gabrych park at 8 o'clock tonight for exhibition game. Tonight's contest will permit Wieczorek to use as many outside players as he chooses. That will mean both Fuchs and Paul Dyke along with Larry Rosenthal. Ken Matthiessen and probably Ralph (Butch) Wieczorek who is not eli- gible for loop competition. Fuchs Hits .375 Fuchs, former product of the Class A Eastern league in 1939-40- 41 has played two games for Wi- nona and is batting .375 on three hits in eight trips. Dyke, formerly of Fort Wayne, took over the Winona bat lead with a solid .400 aver- age, thanks to three hits in four trips against Faribault. Wieczorek, who hasn't played much in the last two weeks, is still hitting .308. In 12 games, the Chiefs have a total of 11 home runs, four coming in the last two tilts. They have been hit by nine different players, Stan Prokopowicz clouted his first one Thursday to beat Owatonna in the eighth stanza. Roberts on Hill Don Roberts, southpaw who has been impressive in relief roles, will go up against the Royals Sunday night. The Milwaukee hurler start- ed Just one game this year. He won that. 3-2, by beating Waseca In the season's opener. Since then he has worked solely in relief in which he suffered his lone loss In his last two outings, he gave up Just two runs and eight hits in 10 'a frames. Rochester will counter with Righthander Willie Hutchingson, Negro chucker. Verdell Mathls started the first game between Ro- chester and Winona but had to bi saved by Gread McKinnis. The lat- ter was tagged for a grand-slam homer by Wieczorek but won when Ken Raddant homered in the tenth with a man on board. After being held to nine hits in three games with Austin, Waseca and Mankato, the Chiefs showed an upswing by clouting 15 hits in the last two games, four of them homers and one a two-bagger, off two of the loop's better hurlers. Jean Da- vlson and Clair Tobias. As a team, the Chiefs are hitting .189, an improvement of five points. Opponents slipped from .275 to .249 thanks to Hugh Or- phan's three-hit hurling and Matthlessen's five and six-hit- ters. The Winona infield Sunday will go unchanged with John Michalow- ski at first, Ralph Sobota at second, Emil Nascak at short and Ray Gabrych at third. Bob McGill will receive Roberts' portside pitches. Sunday Game Sunday's tilt is set for p. m. Tonight's game at Gabrych will be at 8 o'clock. The Chiefs played only two exhibition games this year, los- ing to Grand Forks, 14-7, and Ro- chester, 4-2. The Chiefs return home Tuesday night to start a two-game stand against Owatonna and Albert Lea. Shoot Planned Here Sunday The Winona Sportsmen's club will hold a shoot Sunday start- ing at a. m., it was an- nounced today. The Sunday shoot is one of a series of trap-shooting con- tests being held this summer for local shooters. The event will consist of 50 targets. Fifteen will be from 16 yards and 35 from handicap yardage, said Secre- tary Maurice Miller. Cash prizes will be awarded and the public is invited to at- tend. Any shooters interested may enter the competition. Shells will be available on the grounds. The cream of area golfers will tee off Sunday In the third an- nual Westfield Open golf tour- nament. Play will begin at T.30 a. m. George Cameron, tourney chairman, today said he is opti- mistic that when late entries are completed, the field will include more than 103 the number entered in 1949. Trophies will be awardad to the champion and runnerup along with merchandize prizes. Cameron said besides the cham- pionship flight there probably will be six other flights. In that field shooting for the 27-hole medal play crown will be the defending champion, long-hitting Gene Pelowski, the Westfield pro and Winona Teachers college player-coach. Pelowski will be facing a formidable list of skilled divot- eers from every golf club in Southeastern Minnesota and nearby Western Wisconsin. Some of his toughest compe- tition will come from fellow Westfield strokers, including the club champion, Ward, formerly of Lanesboro, and young John Koch, who this week tied Pelowski's nine-hole record of 30 strokes. The field also will include other members of the crack T, C. golf Beyers, wide-shouldered sticker from El- gin, Minn., John Moynihan, Minneapolis, and Luveme Scan- Ion, Lanesboro, Beyers outshot Pelowski at the Minnesota State College conference tour- ney to become conference med- alist. From out in the area, entry blanks have come in from such top golfers as Fred Brundis of Lake City, Marty Sorum, Lanes- boro; the William Gillmores, Jr. and Sr., from Durand: Jack Knothe, La Crosse, and the five Morems from Harmony. Two more out of town entries received today were from Till- man and Elmer Benson, Peter- son. Latest of the local tourney en- tries are Robert Anderson, James Tearse, Bill Tearse and Dave Ktnowski, all of the Wi- nona Country club, and the fol- lowing Westfield hopefuls, May- or Cy Smith, Mike Burke, Bud Wachs, Ray Schultz, Ev Brown, Howard Johnson, Frank Shee- han, Jr., Spike Carlbrom and Gorman Winston, club president. Pelowski stated today that fa- vorable weather has helped to keep the course in splendid shape. Golfers will be using the new No. 2 dogleg hole which is flanked by water barriers. An additional hazard this year is on No. 3 where recent rains and high water have flooded the area fronting the tee. Lunch will be served at the clubhouse at noon before the final round of play is started.

Track Meet Favorites Minneapolis, Minn. With one new mark in the book and Southern California's Trojans pois- ed to make a title run-away, the 29th National Collegiate Athletic association track and field meet moved into the final round today. After yesterday's ten-event trials ;at the University of Minnesota's Memorial stadium, the Trojans of Southern California seemed, destin- ed to pile up more than 50 points for an easy sweep to their 14th crown in N.C.A.A. history. The men of Troy whipped ten qualifiers through the preliminary competition, including Dandy Dick Attlesey, whose qualifying stint in the 120 high hurdles equalled the meet mark of 13.9. Along with Attlesey in both hurdles, Defending Champion Southern California still had Super Chief Jim Newcomb in the two-mile, rugged polt vault strength and two half-mile finalists to slam at widely-scat- tered opposition. Dark horse contender Yale had a flickering title hope resting on three performers, headed by Defending Shot-Put Champion Jim Fuchs whose record-smashing toss of 56 feet, inches highlighted a sorne- jwhat disappointing trial session. Yale Hopefuls The other two Eli hopefuls were Middle Distance Star George Wade and defending Discus Champion Vic isn't it, what a difference a victory makes. For instance, .T since the Chiefs and Hugh Orphan spilled Faribault Tuesday, we haven't heard a complaint about the Chiefs. During the losing streak we had our share of unsigned postcards, but we haven't had one the last two games. You don't have to be very brave to write a letter and not sign it.

Loyal fans agree with our statement that the Chiefs' brand of baseball, except for those weak hitting perform- ances, certainly isn't deserving of last place in the Southern Minny. However, if the Chiefs keep winning the standings will continue to be published in the new unorthodox sfyle until such time that we can reverse them again without altering Winona's position. That means they must be in fourth or fifth place. Until then, readers that don't like our "standings" will just have to stand on your heads to read them correctly. -8-8-8- Thanks to E. A.

Trotters, Cubans Play ShowdownTiltSunday Baseball's crack Harlem Globetrotters and the potent Brooklyn Cuban Giants, two of the best of the nation's top trav- eling Negro nines, come to Ga- brych park Sunday night at o'clock for a showdown game. Ed Hamman, the well known clown of sports, who made a hit with his clever buffoonery and trick ball handling at the world's series in Cleveland in 1948, also will appear here. The white youth from Fos- toria, Ohio, accompanies the Globetrotters as an added at- traction and also acts as the team's road business manager. He has occupied himself in this capacity for several years with Globetrotter baseball and basketball units. As a clown, Hamman has built up a following from coast to coast and in the foreign countries he has visited with the teams. He won national rec- ognition when he entertained at the baseball world's series in Cleveland in 1948 Many of the best Negro base- ball players will be seen in ac- tion in 'the game.- The Globe- trotters have all of their star veterans back from last year's nine, "-which won 100 games while losing only 19, Their roster, headed by Man- ager-Catcher Paul Hardy, in- cludes such star pitchers as Johnny Williams, Joe Bank- head, Lyman Ramsey, Prank Carsell and Mike Berry. Eugene Hardin splits the receiving du- ties with Hardy and the other positions are manned by such veterans as Herb Simpson, first base; Joe Fishback, second; Leamon Johnson, shortstop; Parnell Woods, third base, and home run clouting Zell Miles along with Sam Wheeler, Leon Wheeler and Sonny Smith in the outfield. Biooklyn again has a formid- able array of performers on the road. Manager Brady John- son is particularly high on Clemente Verona, his sensation- al 24-year-old shortstop from Havana, Cuba. Johnny John- son heads a strong pitching corps. Another favorite with the club is "Early Bird" El- lison, clowning catcher, and Henry Smith, second base. The Globetrotters are under the same ownership as the great Harlem Globetrotters basketball team and have been patterned after them as a bril- liant playing unit well versed in the art of showmanship. Box offices at Gabrych park will open at 7 p. m. to accom- modate a large crowd which is expected.
