Jake Ruppert is gone and Ed Barrow has been supplanted In the glistening Larry MacPhail era but the Babe still holds full title in the hearts of the folks who pay the way. Walking slowly up the steps of the New York Yankee dugout yesterday afternoon into full view of the 58,339 "Babe Ruth Day" fans, the 52-year-old Bambino Bambino was greeted by a thunderous thunderous roar that must have been heard in Hoboken. Most of the waistline bulge had melted under the strain of 82 days in a hospital after his serious neck operation and his heavy voice had faded to a husky half-whisper that tugged at the heart strings. The greatest home run hitter the game ever produced stood a few feet away from the batters' box from which he used to bombard bombard the bleachers. He was surrounded surrounded by such dignitaries as Francis Cardinal Spellman, Commissioner Commissioner A. B. Chandler and Presidents Will Harridge. of the American League, and Ford Frick. of the National League, who already had finished their brief talks. "You know how bad my voice sounds," . he started, "Well, it feels just as bad." And he wen' on from there to tell 14-year-old Larry Cutler, of a Bronx American American Legion team, "You've got to start from way down at the bottom bottom xxx and if you are successful successful and you try hard enough, you are bound to come out on top just like these fellows." Young Cutler, representing the boys with whom Ruth will work under the Ford Company's legion legion baseball team, had hit a popular keynote when he said. "Just to be able to tell Babe Ruth how proud we are to have him back in baseball—back where he belongs—and to know that he is- going to be with us kids, well that's the biggest and best thing that could happen."

Colliver, Colliver, running anchor, took the i baton trailing the Mariner's Ed j Michalski by three yards. However, However, the fleet conemaugh Township Township overhauled his foe and the two raced the final 100 yards neck to neck. The winner was in doubt until the judges' decision awarded the nod to Michalski and the Academy. i In the Class B Championship of America relay, Lock Haven's chances went by the board when Teufel dropped the baton as he was jostled. At the time the Bald Eagle runner was moving into first place. The University of Illinois won three carnival ' titles and still went home disappointed. For the second straight year Coach Leon Johnson's Illini nar- j rowly missed their coveted goal of equalling or breaking the all- time mark of four major relay victories.
