June 24, 1947 WAUKESHA DAILlf FREEMAN, WAUKESHA, WIS. Red Sox Hand Tigers Tenth Straight Loss; Cardinals Win Cubs Pound Cooper to Beat New York; Yanks Defeat Indians By Carl J-tuidquist NSW YORK, Larry Berra likes to get his back slapped and his Yankee team mates assured him today that if he will in turn just keep slapping the ball, they will keep him from yearning about his carefree kid days on Spaghetti hill in St. Louis. Berra, who lived on the same street in St. Louis as Joe Garagiola, the kid catcher of t-he Cardinals, couldn't quite understand it when he joined the business-like Yan- kees and found they weren't "cut- ups" who indulged in dressing room didoes. He had heard Gara- giola tell of the rollicking Cardi- nals with their pre-game mountain music and their collegiate type of whoopee after big victories and it was disillusioning to find that the Yankees operated in comparative silence. Paces Two Victories But all of that was changing to- day for the yogi. Back in the line- up after a stretch on the bench where the silence was even thick- er than in the dressing room, he has paced the Yankees to victory in their last two games. Sunday he hit a grand slam homer and yesterday with a triple, single and Local Bowlers Figure in Money Waukesha faired pretty well in the cash awards, it revealed today in the offi- cial prize list released by the Wis- consin State Bowling association. The awards were made on the showing of the local keglers in the 45 annual state championship which was held at Green Bay. Leading the money winners were Viv Fracaro and Eddie Orgas, whose 1306 score was bood enough to second honors in the regular two-man event. The pair pocketed Pete Pellegrini and Earl Hardy collected for placing sixth in the same event. Ray Langlas, in the regular sin- gles and R. Schiller, in the minor singles, copped and re- spectively. Langlas hit a triple of 674, good for twelfth spot, while Schiller's 655 series placed him in seventeen .h. Ed Orgas, firing a triple of 630 in the regular singles, took down ad- ditional cash of while Pelle- grini, with 650, nailed down another Harry Stutz, who finished 28th with his 653 total, garnered The complete list of Waukesha prize winners, and the event in which they scored follows: REGULAR FIVE-MAN Weber Becv Elks 3028 36 00 Weber Beers............... 2980 Ll.OO Gcbman's Tavprn 2967 18.75 Bshren's Spa ..............2932 1400 Rich's Cambrian House 2884 10.00 JUNIOR FIVE-MAN Weber Beer ..............2748 Rich's Cambrian House 2704 Waukesha Foundry ........2673 3300 Purchasing Department 2666 3100 Tap.............. 2662 3000 Dale Chevrolet 30 00 Pickering Welding.......... 2641 2500 REGULAR TWO-MAN V.

Bos- walk, he kept them In the game] until Tommy Henrich hit a three-! run double in the eighth that pro- duced an 8 to 5 victory over Cleve- land. Now the grinning Italian young- ster is making the business-like Yankees take down their hair and he is winning his way into the hearts of the city's big Italian pop- ulation as did another little guy, Phil Rizzuto, who also found his first days as a Yankee disillusion- ing'. Bed Sox Beat Tigers The Red Sox stayed within two games of leading Yankees by calling on uncle Denny Galehouse, recently picked up from the Browns, and he responded with a six-hit, 8 to 2 victory over the Tigers, who suffered their 10th straight loss. Galehouse, cast off by the Red Sox seven years ago, had easy sledding since Boston scored seven runs in the first three innings, Ted Williams starting it off with a two-run double in the first. Ex-Tiger catcher Birdie Tebbets led the Boston attack with three hits while Johnny Pesky drove in three runs. Led by Bob Kennedy, who hit a three-run inside-the-park homer, the White Sox broke a 3-all tie with seven runs in the ninth to beat the Senators at Washington, 10 to 6. Washington came back with three runs in their half but Earl Caldwell came on to save the veter- an Thornton Lee's third victory. Cards Keep Moving The Cardinals moved to within 3% games of the leading Braves in the National, by defeating them, 6 to 2, at St. Louis. The Cards pounded Charley Barrett, their old team mate for five runs in the first three innings, Enos Slaughter batting him out with a three-run homer. George Hunger was tagged for 10 hits but kept them scattered to win his sixth game. Terry Moore got two hits, running his string of consecutive safe blows to nine, before lining out sharply, Bob Elliott stabbing the ball to rob him of another hit and a tie for a National league record. The Cubs scored four runs in the seventh to knock gut Morton Cooper and defeat the Giants, 6 to 3, at Chicago. Bob Sturgeon batted in three runs with a triple and a single to lead the winners. Walk- er Cooper hit a homer for New York, his third in two days and his 12th of the year. There were no other games sched- uled. Yesterday's Berra of the Yankees, who drove in two runs and scored two more with a homer, triple, single and walk in an 8 to 5 victory over Cleveland. DeSantis Defeat Kenosha, 7 to 4 The DeSantis Sportsman's Bar, buoyed by its victory over a pow- erful Kenosha club in an exhibition game at Buchner park Saturday night, was pointing towards its next Wisconsin State Softball league game with the Brill Uniforms at Milwaukee Saturday night. Although outhit again Saturday night the DeSantis aggregation made its eight hats, garnered off the hurling of Labanow, payoff in the sum of seven runs. Scoring five of the seven counters in the opening two frames and had little trouble in tallying its 7 to 4 victory, the first this season. Lose Little Time The DeSantis team lost little time in getting to Labanow, who dis- played a streak of wildness which was responsible in some part to the locals pushing across its five runs in the opening innings, while the Kenosha club was only able to score lone markers in the first and second stanzas. Labanow walked four batters and only struck out two, while Leponemi, who allowed nine scattered hits, did not issue a pass and sent five to the bench via the strikeout route. Pacing the winners attack was Schmoller, who crashed out a rous- ing homer to score two runs ahead of him. DeSantis, C. Sobrofski and Tallinger each counted two hits apiece in their four appearances at the plate. Three men, Trotta, Conley and Giardiano, also paced the Kenosha assault against the deliveries of Leponemi as they crashed out a couple hits apiece, with Trotta loft- ing one for a lengthy triple. Diel- man, leftfielder for the Kenosha club, joined Schmoller in the home r'un department. The box-score: DeSantis (7) IKenosha (4) AB H HI AB K H 2 3 500 A.

Sports Dial By Ferde Adams Byron Nelson, biggest money-maker in the tough pro tournament circuits, will do his stuff over West Bend's tough course, Saturday, July 5. The course is located four miles west of West Bend and one-half mile east of Big Cedar lake. To build up golfing enthusiasm and to give southeastern Wisconsin folks a chance to witness the finest golfing machine in the country today, West Bend Country club leaders arranged to put on a special exhibition featuring Byron, known as Mr. Golf. Byron will play the rugged hole West Bend course on Satur- day afternoon, July 5, in a foursome that will include Coley Griffon, West Bend club champ, Bob Rolfs, Jr., West Bend amateur who hits a mean ball for Notre Dame univer- sity and Norman Cameron, West Bend club pro. Incidcntly, Cam- eron served as Nelson's assistant at the famed Ivernesa club at Toledo. Tee-off time is scheduled for and the public is "definitely in- W. A. Malzahn, secretary- treasurer of the club, said today. Admission to defray the cost of Nel- sons' coming will be tax in- cluded. Naturally, West Bend Country club enthusiasts will be anxious to see what Nelson can do about bicak- ing the course records, 33 for nine and 68 for the 18 holes. Nelson reached his peak last winter winning more prize money than ever in the history of golf. His accomplishments include win- ning- every major golf tournament in this country; the Western Open, PGA. National Open, Canadian Open, Tam-O'Shanter tournament and the Masters Open. In addition to the regular 18 holes of play, Byron will put on a special demonstration of key shots after the match, which means that it will be a full afternoon of the most interesting of golf by Mr. Golf himself. A Hal Peck fan writes from Illi- nois urging that all Waukesha ton (Ferris St. Louis (Kinder 4-0) at Phila- delphia (Marchildon county get behind the former Big Bend flyhawk and cast a ballot for the big Cleveland Indian outfielder in the poll now being taken through- out the country for the All-Star game, which will be played July 9. Bad news for the Milwaukee Knothole Gang: Plans are under way to replace the ancient wooden fence around the Marquette uni- versity stadium with a wire struc- ture which will support a wall of canvas on game days. It is hoped that the materials will become available this summer. George Welch Unveils New Midget Racer Here: No. 17 Seaman's Dump PGA Finalists are Harbert, Ferrier Brewers Squeeze Two From By United Press A balance of power has carried Indianapolis to th'e chief contend- er's spot in the American associa- tion today and an abundance of pitching promises to keep the Indi- ans hot on the heels of league-lead- ing Kansas City. When one pitcher faltered last night, another was ready to take up the chore and finally a third hurler finished off the Indians" 5-3 defeat of Toledo at Indianapolis. Coupled with Louisville's loss to Columbus, the Indians moved into second place by a half game and trailed Kansas City by four. In other games last night, Mil- waukee jumped back to fourth place by reversing Sunday's twin loss, defeating Minneapolis, 8 to 7 and 4 to 3. St. Paul and Kansas City battled eight innings to an 8-8 deadlock when fog caused postpone- ment of the game. Indians Win Lefty Eai'l Tones was pitching good ball for Toledo, protecting a 2-1 lead when Indianapolis came up with a lucky seventh inning and enough runs to win. The Indians scored three times, twice on Andy Andres' homer and then added an insurance marker in the eighth. Stan Ferek was the winning pitch- er after relieving Ken Gables in the seventh and Francis Barrett fin- ished when the Hens threatened in the ninth. Minneapolis' two big innings couldn't match the Brewers' sus- tained attack in the first game at Milwaukee. The Millers outhit the winners but counted only three runs in the first inning and four in the seventh to fall one short of the Brewers. Steve Roser allowed 10 scattered hits in the nightcap, shortened to eight innings because of Wisconsin's curfew law, to make it a double victory for the Brews. Birds Beat Colonels The lowly Columbus Red_ Birds battled the Colonels at Louisville to a standstill for 14 innings before 2 to 1. Bill Clark toiled the full distance for the Birds, al- lowing six hits while Columbus made four blows off the combined offerings of Earl Toolson and Al Widmar. At Kansas City, the Blues were trailing 7-0 when they pushed a run across in the fourth and six rnoie in the fifth to knot the count. St. Paul added a tally in the sixth which the Blues matched in the eighth to gain a non-decision as the fog settled over the field making it impossible to continue the game. Games tonight: St. Paul at Mil- The slick No. 17 midget racer pictured above has been the envy of all neighborhood kids and the scourge of other drivers on the dirt tracks in Wisconsin and Illi- nois. The car, built and owned by George Welch, foreman of the Kaiser-Fraser garage on Main st., across from the courthouse, is not a plaything. Far from it. The machine, which looks all the world like a toy, cost Welch nearly to put together and this does not count his work which, if you've ever had your ol' jalopy in a garage to be repaired, would come to another pretty penny. Began Building Early Welch, who purchased a midget racer last year and rebuilt it some- what began building the ear early this year. The 37-year-old mechan- ic built the car up from a Stude- baker champion block. Some of the features of the car is the quick change gear box, with 13 changes of gears, which is nestled next to the crank shaft. The rear axle is locked in the racer and there is no flywheel. The gear box alone will run the backyard mechanic, if he so chooses to build a midget auto, roughly Hubs, spindles, dif- wheels, tires and tubes are less expensive items, but their prices total up to a neat sum. Almost all of th? parts, such as springs, and the body itself were made by Welch himself. It is a rear wheel drive (no front wheel drives are allowed on midgets) and sports hydraulic brakes. Welch had a special pattern made of the head and the entire car is constructed primarily of cast steel, and not the conventional aluminum. Weighs Only 900 Pounds The front wheels sport 400x12 four-ply tires while the back wheels have inch tires. The smal- ler tires on the front make for easy handling, according to Welch. The entire machine weighs about 900 pounds. With Landy Scott, a Milwaukee driver, at the wheel No. 17 has proved its superior performances in no less than three races, the lat- est at Baraboo Sunday. Speed? It'll do 90 M. P. H. on the straightaway of a dirt track, and averages about 65 M. P. H. on a half mile track. Of course, this speed can go up or down, depend- ing1 upon the condition of the track itself. Several weeks ago, the car was badly smashed in a crackup in one of the races. However, used to working nights at the garage and on his off hours on Saturday and Sun- the car back on the track for the next race at Beaver Dam. And it was back in perfect shape, easily winning the feature 25-mile event. waukee; Minneapolis at Kansas City; Columbus at Indianapolis Toledo at Louisville (two) Purity Bakeries In the only game played last night in the Major AAA Men's Night Softball league, the Pewau- kee Seamen's went on an extra base rampage at Buchner park to defeat the Purity Bakeries, 23-5, in one of the wildest games seen at the di- amond this season. The Seaman's counted seven dou- bles, one triple and three circuit blows to completely overwhelm the Bakeries, who dropped their fourth straight game. It was the Sea- man's second victory in five starts this season. Richman, the centerfieider for the Pewaukee aggregation, had the biggest night at the plate garner- ing a single, double and homer and scoring three counters in his four appearances at the plate. Jekel, however, with only one hit, a four- run homer, accounted for the most runs for the Pewaukee entry. B. Adams clouted a double and a hom- er his three times in the batter's box. Every man on the Seaman's counted at least one hit in the wild 14-hit game. Only One Strikeout Another oddity of the game was that J. Schuett, rookie pitcher, who started in centerfield, registered the only strikeout of the game. Winchell, Greb and Price, the lat- ter with two hits to his credit, were the only ones to touch J, Becker for extra base knocks. The Seaman's scored 11 runs in the initial inning, added eight more in the second and finished out with two each in the third and fourth innings in the abbreviated five- frame contest.

By Ed Sainsbury DETROIT, Jim Ferrier, a putting specialist, and Chick Har- bert, a slugging star, match their different styles of golf today with the 1947 P.G.A. championship and the first prize at stake. They will pit golfing finesse against golfing force, for 36 holes on the yard Plum Hollow golf course, and neither was a def- inite favorite among the betting gentry. Ferrier, an Australian-born Amer- ican citizen, can hit a long ball ac- curately but it is his soreness with a putter that makes him deadly. Harbert, a hometown boy, boasts power which will ssmash a golf ball more than 300 yards from the tee, no matter what direction, and he has the ability to push iron shots onto a green from fabulous dis- tances. His putting in four rounds in the P.G.A. tourney has been good enough. They reached the finals with their different games, and only once was either of them pressed. Harbert had to go 20 holes in his second round match against Clayton Heafner, Charlotte, N. C., before he won 1 up. Yesterday they were at their best.

I Goodnight, a student at the Uni- versity of Tennessee's medical school in Memphis, caught sixteen passes last year for an average gain of 19.2 yards per pass and scored' one touchdown, although he was handicapped all season by a scries of injuries. A graduate of Tulsa university where he captained the football team in 1944, Goodnight played starring roles in four Bowl games, participating in the Sugar bowi twice, the Orange bowl and the Sun bowl. He relieved Don Hutson in 1945, his first year in the major league, and was being groomed to take over for Hutson last year when he suffered a muscle injury in the hip a week before the i'lrst Chicago Bear game. The Packers' end situation, how- ever, prevented Goodnight from receiving the rest necessary and led to recurrences of the injury throughout the fall. The big end held off signing hia contract until he was certain the injury -was heal- ed completely, but now reports he is ready to resume the Packers' regular left end. Goodnight, who Is six feet one and 195 pounds, is the 31st Packer under contract for 1947. Ferrier trampled 38-yenr-old Art Bell, Colma, Calif., 10 and 9, equal- ling the highest" victory margin ev- er recorded in the semi-finals of the P.G.A. tourney. Harbert over- powered the 1941 P.G.A. champion, Vic Ghezzi, from Kansas City, Kans., 6 and 5. Both won going away. Bell took only one hole from Ferrier, and that was the 9th. When he captured that he reduced the San Francis- can's margin from 5 up to 4 up. The rest of the day he was chasing a phantom. Ferrier was 6 up after 18 holes, and after 23 he vras 10 up. They halved the next foxir, and then there were only nine holes to play, while the lanky Ferrier was 10 up and in. Four Up at Nine Harbert lost the first hole to Ghezzi, but he won the second and was four up at the end of nine, five up at the end of 18, and five up at the end of 27. Then despite Ghez- zi's struggle, Harbert halved the next three and won :he fourth with a birdie three to a bogie five to make it 6 and 5. Ferrier's strength yesterday .was his putter, as it has been all through the tournament. He took only 26 putts for the first 18 holes and had a medal score of 67, five under par. Then on the next nine he took 15 putts and his medal was 32, four under par. Thus he was nine un- par for the 27 holes he played. Harbert achieved nearly the same low medal, but he got It by laying his approaches so close to the pin he couldn't miss the four and five foot putts. Hig total for 18 holes was 69, three under par, and for the next 13 he was two more strokes off regulation figures, finishing five better for the day. Tie for Mixed Twosome Event at Merrill Hills Wally Staven and Mrs. Joe Mor- rison paired Sunday at Merrill Hills Country club to tie for first honors in the low gross mixed twosome event and third in the low net com- petition. The "championship" duct scored a 95 to tie with Mr. and Mrs. A. Farrell, while Mr. and Mrs. Paul Lenhardt 'finished third with a score of 103. Low net. honors were won by the twosome composed of Jack Greb and Mrs. H. Hielscher with a 68.
