T . the start of the year, we think th FfOlll 42 Net CrOP, Giants now would be in CREAM GONE second place more or less within reach of the Dodgers. O't hasn't had the services of his best pitcher, Cliff Melton, for more than a month. Now he'll have to get along without Cliff for the rest of the semester. A chip on the fchoulder is an asset in any pitcher, but a chip on the elbow is something else. Melton is suffering from crazy-bone carbon. He was - headed for 20 victories as sure as he's got Bambi eais. johnny Mize has been in and out of the sick bay. Bob Carpenter is ailing. So is Ba'ce Barna. It has been a transient's ball club, in fact. almost since the beginning. We think Ott has held it together. We v:re among these friends of Mel who feared, when he was appointed, that he m'ght be too "nice" to manage that is, too ecsy with the laggards and too sentimental about the older blokes. GOOD LEADER. .-' He is neither. He's just a first-Class inspirational sort of leader Who has worked wonders with a cross-patch ball club. He has brought back thousands of old Giant rooters who were driven away either by the failures of Mc-Graw's last teams or the Icy quality Of Terry and his teams. V We think that if Ott can keep the Giants in the first division he will have done a fine job. If he can beat out the Reds for third place, despite the population of his sick bay, he will have achieved a memorable job of managing a ball Club. - " ' So Forest Hills IMay Will De l!u lies que This Year. Racing? It's futile to cry over a Bpilt $23,516, especially in these days when the word trillion is coming into use. But what a fine thing it would have been for officials of Washington Park, in Chicago, to announce before the running of that Alsab race the other day that Alsab was simply out for the fresh air. , The magic name of the $700 wonder horse attracted more than $23,516 of sucker lucre in his return to the racing wars for the fjrst time since Shut Out beat him for the Belmont pot. Of that amount $15,220 was bet on him to win, though he .had been out for more than two months and though the stable isn't one to consider whether he feels up to snuff or not. Wc doubt vciv much if Al Sabath or Sarge Swenke contrib-jEcuadorean, promises the most Ted Schroeder In Starring Role 0 Farce Entitled "National Amateur Championships." BY OSCAR FRAI.KY. New York, August 10 (UP) Burlesque shows are banned in New York, but they'll put one on in Forest Hills' famed stadium this month with Ted Schroeder of Glen-dale, Calif., in the starring role of a farce entitled: "The National Amateur. Tennis Championships." The U. S. L. T. A., sponsor of the show, originally planned a high-grade performance such as was staged in former years. But what with the war and one thing and another, including slightly higher pay in professional ranks, the cast was depleted until only two of the 10 top-ranking actors were left. Attempts to bill the play as a super-colossal extravaganza were stymied by a review of the cast. The star virtually the only one in the racquet revue is the kid from California, and he'll undoubtedly be the hero in this travesty that is amateur tennis. FIFTH NATIONALLY. Schroeder probably wouldn't be able to carry the role in normal days, for he ranks only fifth nationally and scored his first major triumph only last week. But proof that circumstances alter cases is the preesnt situation in amateur ranks. Bobby Riggs and Frank Kovacs, ranked first and second, have turned professional. Third-ranking Frankie Parker is working steadily on the coast and is not expected to compete. Don McNeill, No. 4, is a naval attache at Buenos Aires; Wayne Sabin, No, 6, has turned pro; seventh-ranking Gardner Mul-loy is in the navy and No. 8 Bitsy Grant is in the army. Jack Kramer the No. 9 boy is recovering from an appendectomy leaving tenth-seededBill Talbert of Cincinnati as the ranking contention. Providing the chief opposition will be two South Americans, a veteran whose legs go too soon and a youngster Horn Fhiladelpnia.

But why should such a tuning, up be done at the cost of thousands of dollars of sucker dough? Did we ask why? The answer is too obvious. For all their prattle, there isn't a track in America whose interest in racing Is academic enough to give a sucker an even break. If tracks told the truth about the condition of the horses that go to the post, It would cut down on the amount of bstting. Young Al Vanderbilt tiied to do It once upon a time affd has been looked upon as a wild-haired radical by the saintly elders of racing ever since. must have grin on the Swimming? There been a white-toothed milk-chocolate kisser of the Sheriff of Honolulu County when his favorite sports writer, Red McQueen of the Honolulu Advertiser called him to tell him that Bill Smith had won the 440-yaid national free-style In jecord time. DIKE IS GRAY. The Sheriff, who is getting gray, is Duke Kahanamoku. He swam in the Waikiki surf as a baby, used a crushed five-gallon tin can as a eurf board and figured out by himself thousands of miles from the most enlightened swimming coaches that the flutter kick was faster than the scissors. When we talked to him the winter before last he was complaining that the latter-day beach boys were dopes; that they sent to Cincinnati for their eurf boards and that they wouldn't train to be great swimmers. Then along came Smith, bronzed, barefoot high school boy who was first rjut into t. water by his Hawaiian mother, who primitively thought it would cure him of the diseae that nearly took his life when he was 10 years old. It did. Today he is swimming faster than the old Duke or anybody else ever could. trouble after three clay court vic tories, but is having trouble on grass, which robs him of his winning speed. The other invader, Alejo Russell of Argentina, still must show his mettle. The veteran Sidney Wood, 1931 Wimbledon champion, lasts only as long as those aforementioned legs, and strictly a longshot is Vic Seixas, the Philadelphia "comer." OVERWHELMING CHOICE. Against the ' cream of this skimmed-milk crop, Schroeder is an overwhelming favorite. Everyone in the tennis world picks Schroeder, and the self-assured Californian agrees with them. I think I'm playing better. tennis this year than ever before because I'm stronger," says the tall lad with the pugnacious jaw. "If I don't win the national champion ship this year, I never will." In all fairness to Schroeder, for the situation is not of his making, he probably would give any of the first 10 a good battle. It's just that the competition isn't there. Schroeder, 21-year-old Stanford graduate, plays a sound game of typical smashing California tennis. Despite the fact that, he has a flat service, with no "stuff" on it, Continued On Next Page. Craws" For Catfish, Is Tip To Anglers Recently the Division of Conservation and Natural Resources announced the late summer end early fall distribution of channel catfish to make them available for anglers immediately. At the same time the Section of Fish Management reports on recent food studies of adult channel cat fish taken by anglers in Central Ohio. David Davies, a student in the Zoology Department at Ohio State University, recommends the use of crawfish for bait as he found 50 per cent of all food taken by these fish consisted of crawdads and he suggests that the channel cat is primarily a bottom feeder. However, these fish also prefer crickets, other surface water insects and spiders and if bottom baits are not successful the fisherman should try surface lures. Contrary to popular opinion, minnows composed only a small part of the food items and in the future more catfish may be taken if crawfish, crickets and other live insects are used for bait. Some fishermen, however, are substituting shrimp for crawfish and getting excellent results. Most of the crawfish found in the stomachs of the channel cats were not crushed and were swallowed head first. INFORM BOXING FANS As To Disqualifications In Round Suggets N.B.A. Leader. Patterson, N. J.. August 10 (AP) In a move designed to "keep box1-ing fan informed at all times," Abe J. Greene, President of the National Boxing Association, today asked states affiliated with the NBA to have announced from the ring at the end of pach round when a boxer is penalized for illegal blows or tactics. Under this system, Green said, "there can be no mystery as to the progress of a bout or the ultimate decision in case of fouls." Greene installed the system in New Jersey two years ago when he was State Athletic Commissioner. It was hailed then by fans and experts. When a referee penalises a fighter, he summons the club announcer who informs the fans of the referee's action. Some states have the announcers advisn fans of rounds lost .-it the conclusion of the bout and Greene said this "leads to confusion and many times dissatisfaction with de cisions. "? P Takes Medal Honors Reds At Pittsburgh Today; Thompson To Be On Mound The next six days will just about decide the Reds' chances of over taking the second-place St. Louis Cardinals, who they now trail by eight and one-half games. During this time they will play three games with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and four, including a double-header next Sunday, with the "on-again-off-again" Cardinals at St. Louis. the Reds shoved off for Pittsburgh late last night. Gene Thomp son is expected to get the nod from Deacon Willie McKechnie to work this afternoon's game, with either Ray Starr or Paul Derringer han dling the hurling chores in the night game tomorrow. Max Butcher, usually a tough hombie for the Reds to do business with, probably will, oppose Thompson, with Rip Sewell operating against our boys under the mazdas. "Thompson goes pretty well against the Pirates and has pitched less recently than the other mem bers of the slightly overworked staff, so he'll be my pitcher today," declared McKechnie before board ing the Smoky City rattler. Thompson has been pitching up to his promise of 1940 in his recent assignments, allowing only three runs and seven hits in the last 16 rnnnHs he wnrkpd. The Deacon was also optimistic about the way his boys hit in the marathon double-header against the Cubs Sunday. Eddie Joost and Bert Haas showed definite indications of coming out of their slumps, and Frank McCormick hit hard, but always right at an enemy. All of the Reds leit on the six-day jaunt with the exception of Catchei Ray Lamanno, who was left behind to nurse a compound dislocation of the right thumb.

Y., August 10 (AP) Three days of Grand Circuit racing featured by the $40,000 Hamble-tonian on, Wednesday, gets underway at Good Time park tomorrow with two-year-old trotters and pacers matching strides in the feature races. The $4,000 Arthur S, - Tompkins Memorial has attracted a field of 13 two-year-old trotters with the esult elimination heats will be held with the survivors coming back for the final mile test.

I August 10 (AP) Narragansett Park opened its forty-two-day summer meeting today with a throng estimated at more than 12,000 aiding the Treasury Department day program by purchasing admission with war stamps and. bonds throughout the afternoon. The opening day feature, the $5,000 added Pawtucket Handicap: was won by E. C. Eastwood's Challamore, who scored a length ana three-quarter victory over Hysterical from the Circle S Sta ble in the six-furlong sprint. J. W, Y. Martin's abrasion was third, another length and three quarters to the rear. Challamore, which covered the distance in X : 11 s . was among the leaders through the early running and took command in the turn to the stretch. Both Hysterical and Abrasion passed the heavily fa vored Dekalb, from the Nimkoff and Stuart barn in the stretch run. Challamore's Triumph was worth $4,410, and the winner paid $15.20, $7.20, and $4.60. Hysterical re-. turned $10.10 and $6, and Abrasion paid $4.20 to show. In the day's secondary feature, the Jockey Opportunity Stakes honoring the late Tom Thorp, Don Brunelle, a Pawtucket native, rode Morry-Ho Stable's spiral pass to a four-and-one-half length triumph over the mile and oiiie-sixteenth. Brunelle started his riding ca-j reer here a year ago under the guidance of Thorp, who was presiding steward at all New England tracks until his recent death. In Opening IMay Of Fro Golfers' Tourney.

"Bunny" Berning is medalist In the Greater Cincinnati pro golf tournament, The Sycamore pro toured Camargo in 70, taking but 33 shots oh the front line and 37 on the homestretch. Art Smith, the Hyde Park maestro, and Clay Gad-die, Terrace Park, were one stroke behind Berning with 71. The defending champion, Bob Gutwein of Wyoming, was three strokes off Berning's pace with a 73. Other qualifying scores were Frank Gel- hot, 72; Art Fisher, 72; Curtis Bryan, runner-up last year, took a 73; George Meyers, 80; Benny Bas-tin, 78; Fred Miley, 80; George Meh-ring, 81; Jerry Burns, 82; Marty Kavannaugh, 83; Harry Boyer, 80.

A. champ, was unable to compete, so Benny Bastin of Fort Mitchell drew a bye. The public is invited and a gal-leryite may get a free observation lesson from now through Friday. From all indications this tournament, as well as all others, will be hewed to smaller proportions in the future. Cities much larger than Cincinnati have reduced their five and six day tourneys to three days, and it obviously would be in keeping with rationings and new drains on time.

The Clowns, who play the New York Lincoln Giants and the Nashville Stars at Crosley Field Sunday, have been extended an invi tation to play a series of games in Mexico this fall and winter. The Clowns, biggest drawing card in Negro baseball, may accept the invitation as the Denver tourney, in which they had hoped to defend their championship, has been abandoned for the duration. The Cincinnatians' games with the Lincoln Giants and Nashville will provide fans an opportunity of seeing two of the strongest Negro independent teams in action, The Lincoln Giants, one of the oldest names in Negro baseball, are back in the field after several years absence and will bring with them a highly touted youngster in Recce (Uoose) Tatum, hard-hitting out fielder. Tatum, who also played on the Birmingham Black Barons, dis played his ability here with the Minneapolis-St. Paul Gophers last month and blasted out two long hits off the Clown pitching. His contract was purchased from the Gophers last week. Bill Crump Continues To ' Send Out Victors Wins With Farm Lady In First. William Boyd Littrell, sixteen- year-old youngster from Lexington had the thrill of his life yesterday afternoon at River Downs when he won the first race of his riding career on Belle-Tara, a three-year-old daughter of Amer ican Flag and Petite, which also was entering the winner's circle for the first time. Littrell, son of Boyd S. Littrell, trainer for D. B. Midkiff and Tom Cromwell, accepted his first mounts during the first week of the meeting and showed he had the ability to make good 'when he put up sev eral sterling rides to drive his mounts in the money. -However, the promising apprentice had not ridden a winner until the fourth race yesterday when he put up a grand exhibition to get the Midkiff and Cromwell filly home a length and one-half in advance of A. S. Higgins' Matchless, which led the parade from the start to within the last 70 yards of the six furlongs dash. ' . ' Carry Cash, a Louisiana-bred daughter of Michigan Boy finished third. While Matchless and Carry Cash were dominating the early running during' the first three-eights, Littrell had a snug hold of the ulti mate winner and was riding with much confidence in', seventh position in the 10-horse race. As they turned into the stretch Littrell began to go to work on the American Flag filly and, although she was forced to lose some ground in making her move, picked out the better part of the track and when straightened out for the drive Belle-Tara was racing in ' third position and within striking distance of Matchless and Carry Cash. In the drive to the wire Lit trell went to work on Belle-Tara and she came with a belated stretch rush to pass Matchless in the last sixteenth and drew out to score a handy win. Oddly enough, the owners, trainer, and jockey all nan rrom .Lexington. Willie Crump continued, his long list of saddling winners when he put the tack on Thomas Piatt's Farm Lady, winner of the first race. Wee Captain finished second and Darby Diavolo third.

Bean -Ball Pitches Must Be Stopped, Declares President Of National League New York, August 10 (AP) National League pitchers who feel the urge to throw bean balls in the future may do so if their man agers are willing to put out $200. Seeking to curb a "dusting" practice which threatened to reach epi demic proportions, League President Ford C. Frick today notified each manager that he will be held fully accountable for such inci dents, and would be subject to automatic fines of $200 where his pitchers were involved. The edict came as an aftermath of the Brooklyn Dodger-Boston Brave game at Boston last Saturday in which Whit Wyatt of the Dodgers and Manuel Salvo of the Boston club engaged in a dusting duel. Wyatt was fined $75 for his Chicago the Dodgers charged that part in the affair, and Salvo $50. Wyatt's performance included throwing a bat ir. Salvo's direction after he had been forced to the dirt by one of Salvo's pitches. Frick also said that, in addition to the fines tacked on managers in cases involving their pitchers in the future, the pitchers would be fined, with the amount determined through the umpires' report. Rumblings of bean-ball trouble have been heard periodically this season in the National League, with most instances involving the Dodgers. However, no direct action had been taken before. Only one fine was levied after a game involving such charges, and that fine did not involve an attempted dusting. In the last Dodger series In the Cub hurler, Hiram Bithorn was using the bsan ball. Bithorn was fined $25, but the fine was for throwing the ball at the heckling Leo Durocher, Dodger manager The Cubs charged Kirby Higbe, Dodger pitcher, with duster tactics in the same game. The Brooklyn club also was involved in stormy games with the Cardinals and Giants in which bean-ball charges flew indiscrim inately. Frick emphasized the fact that he was not going into any long investigations as to which pitcher started a bean-ball duel, or the background of any feud. "It has got to be stopped before somebody gets injured, and if this (the o$200 fine) doesn't do it, I'll think0 of something else," he de-i clared. . SELMA MAY WINS.
