H„ Aug. 11.—The daily double at Rockingham Park yesterday was what you might call a family affair. Tony DeSpirito, national riding champion, brought 'in Mona J. at $15.60 in the first race and then his cousin, Joe Tombarello, won his first race aboard the longshot Reedy Creek ($91.60) in the second. The double paid $480.60. DeSpirito—hitting his stride after being sidelined by an in fected shin—rode four winners yesterday to boost his 1953 total to 164. The 17-year-old Lawrence, Mass., jockey, bothered this year by injuries and suspensions, is back of his 1952 pace when he rode a record 390 winners. Even so he seemed likely to finish second to Willie Shoe maker* who has a big lead with more than 200 winners. Power Golf Proper Footwork Aids Balance During Swing a I . (No. 15 in a Series:) By Ben Hogan The foot movements of a high class player during his swing are made so quickly and smoothly that they quite often are taken for granted by everybody except the most observant student of the game. It is possible to play good golf from the hips upward but you must have good form from the hips down to be a really first-class player. Those who are observant enough to notice the footwork of the top players will come to realize that balance is an im portant part of every golf shot. They will realize also that it is impossible to attain balance w ithout proper foot action during the swing. In this rear view of my closed stance, my left foot is advanced approximately one-half inch while my right foot has been withdrawn one-half inch making the overall alteration approxi mately one inch. These adjust ments in the stance, slight as they may seem, are important. The reason is that they alter the facing of the body. From Pow*r Golf by Ben Hogan Copy right, 1P43. A. S Barnes A Co.. Inc.

Aga Khan's Yearlings Bring Top Bids at Saratoga Sales By th* Associated Press SARATOGA SPRINGS. N: Y„ Aug. 11.—Fifty horses, headed by a consignment of 14 from the famous Brookmeade Stable, will be up for bids tonight at the annual Saratoga yearling sales. The sales will run only five nights this year, compared to seven in 1952, so the average sales per night are expected to be higher The Aga Khan, famed Moslem leader, and nis son. Prince Aly Khan, received $170,600 of the $372,600 total at the opening of the sales last night. The Khan’s horses, numbering 21, brought an average of $8,123.81. somewhat lower than the average of $8,675 realized Stengel's Expected Retirement May Give Cue to Durocher • By John P. Carmichael Chicago Daily News Sports Editor CHICAGO. Aug. It. There can be little doubt, anymore, but What the 1953 World Series will open at Yankee Stadium eiUier September 29 or Septem ber. 30 and that the Dodgers will again represent the National League. The White Sox don’t seem to be geared to the great effort necessary to win the pen nant. Thus the defending champs will set an all-time record of five consecutive flags and, perhaps, that many world titles. On this unparalleled achieve ment (barring accidents) Casey Stengel will call it a career. Leo Looks Undermined. Stengel may not walk into re tirement alone. Leo Durocher also is on the verge- The Giants’ manager isn’t himself anymore. He doesn’t act as lathered up, as forceful as of old. He gives an occasional impression of being undermined by ennui or fatigue, brought on by 15 years of man aging. Durocher already has said he would take no job with anothsr club: that when, and if. Owner Horace Stoneham of the Giants gave him the hook, he’d retire to Beverly Hills and a part-time television career. This might just be the time. Who would succeed Stengel? Probably Fr?mk Crossetti. Maybe Jim Turner. Could be Jim Dykes. Who would replace Durocher? The guess is tougher here be cause there isn’t a “live one” In the offing. People are beginning to ask: “What about Phil Cavarretta?” They foresee Stan Hack coming up from Los Angeles to take over the Cubs, but it is doubtful if P. K. Wrigley would okay Cavar retta’s dismissal and why would Hack want to take over this misfit club? Eddie Stanky and Charlie Grimm have been given three year contracts by the Cardinals and Braves. Fred Hutchinson has been re-hired by Detroit. Lou Boudreau is home free in j Boston. Bucky Harris can stay! at Washington as long as he wants to. Charlie Dressen ‘can’t lose. Lopez's Status in Doubt. This brings up a composite question: How solid is A1 Lopez at Cleveland . . . Rogers Hornsby at Cincinnati . . . Fred Haney at Pittsburgh? This will be the third straight year that Hank Greenberg has expected Lopez & Co. to win the bunting. Expectations have been rather high in Chicago this summer. Chuck Comiskey, Frank Lane and Paul Richards haven’t yet given up hope but it looks like a lost cause because the Yanks win the big ones. Saddest part of last week end’s series was that Chicago's pitch ing didn’t get any support. “Consuegra pitched one of the most brilliant games I ever saw.” Richards told Lane over the phone after the 1-0 White Sox loss in.the opening game Satur day. “You sat there fascinated with the way he was working.” When the Sox opened the ’53 season, they had team speed, potential hitting, excellent de fense and' Saul Rogovin. Billy Pierce and Joe Dobson as a prob- from the Saratoga sale last year by the ruler and his son. Top price of the night was $39,000, brought by p bay filly by Bois Roussel, consigned by the Aga Khan. It was knocked down to the Nydrie Stud of Esmont, Va. The second high-priced young ster of the night was a chestnut colt by Tehran out of Hastra, bought for $26,000 by the Cock field Stables of Bedford Hills, N. Y. This was another of the Aga Khan’s consignment. Total amount of the first night sale was higher than last year, when 55 yearlings brought SIOO,- 700, an average of $1,830.90. Tonight’s average was $7,604. The variance in the first night’s figures can be traced to the fact the Aga Khan’s consignment was auctioned off on the second night last year. able "big three” on the mound, j They still have the speed and defense. The hitting has fallen off and if it wasn’t for Fornieles and Trucks and Consuegra and Dorish things would be in a terrible state, >. Yet the way the whole team has been playing, when put to pressure, brooks little criticism. One is forced to the conclusion that the Sox have done their very best, day in and day out. It’s just that the best isn’t always good enough! ' Minor Leagues By the Associated Prats PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE. Portland. 4: Oakland. 2. Only game scheduled. INTERNATIONAL LEAGCE.

For the longest season in eight years. States may choose their hunting days between October 1 and January 10, with the At lantic flyway season to be 60 consecutive hunting days or two periods of 27 each. Field in vestigations indicate the birds in the Atlantic flyway will be more numerous than in 1952. Bag and possession limits on ducks remain the same as last year, four a day and eight in possession. Bag and possession limits on geese (except snow geese) have been changed from three a day to three in pos session to two and four. There is a closed season on snow geese in the Atlantic flyway.

Atchison Star Staff Correspondent LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11.—One of the chief complaints against the T-formation is the compli cated gibberish of the signal sys tem. The quarterback gives more directions than a tourist agent and to most rookies it sounds like a 30-second explanation of the Einstein theory. On a forward pass, for ex ample, the left end might be told to “post” and the right half to swing.” with additional blocking instructions for the other men. Clark Shaughnessy, one of the earliest exponents of the mod ern T, has a bookful of maneu vers varying ever so slightly in some details. Each change is designated by a word pr phrase and a layman needs a special dictionary to figure out an ordi nary end run. Herman Ball, assistant coach of the Redskins who learned the T from Shaughnessy, simplified the signal system to some extent a year ago by merely tossing out jverlapping phrases. Sammy Baugh, the Redskins’ retired quarterback, went Herman one better. When Sani, for example, wanted a halfback to go in mo tion and be a decoy for a long pass, he simply told the halfback to “get out there and fool around.” This year Coach Curly Lam oeau and Ball have come up with one set of signals, at least, which should be fairly easy to remem ber. They apply only to passes to Bones Taylor, rangy end and a key man in Lambeau’s offen sive plans. A high pass to Tay lor will be a “neck bones” play. Buffalo Manager Cleared Os Spitting on Umpire By the Associated Press BUFFALO. N.

The club announced receipt of a ruling from Frank Shaugh nessy, president of the Interna tional League. Tighe was suspended after a rhubarb with Umpire Max Fel erski Saturday. Shaughnessy said the “spit ting incident” appeared to be accidental. Tighe denies heatedly that he spat. He took a police lie de tector test yesterday in an at tempt to prove his point.

Fullbacks Leon Heath and Jack Cloud have discovered both had the same high school coach at one time or another in their native Oklahoma. Cloud subse quently moved to Virginia and starred at William and Mary, while Leon went on to All- America fame at Oklahoma. Leon doesn’t have such pleas ant memories of high school football for a couple of reasons. One was that he was a guard. And then there was an incident he can’t forget. Seems that the coach told Mule Train to warm up during one game and Heath charged up and down the sideline, did the customary knee bends, and came back full of fire and vinegar. “I’m warmed up. coach,” he said, pulling on his helmet. “Okay,” the coach replied. “Sit down.” Johnson League Series Starts Friday at Stadium The Walter Johnson league world series, a best 2-out-of-3 affair, gets under way Friday at Griffith Stadium with two games opening the play.
