His Telephone *»'•" I ||* t\itt- Saved Him ^ Last person seen with Amy Kerr before she hurtled to her death from a roof, Harry Hutchins immediately became suspect No. 1. But a telephone call recorded at the moment of the crime saved him. Around that call developed one of the most baffling murder cases ever known, and the search for a killer whose only trail was his voice. Watch for this great story in the new smash serial of the year OUT OF THE NIGHT Beginning Tomorrow in Hope Star lilTTLE ROCK, Ark.—(ff)—Pitcher Byron Humphreys' triple and Jack O'Neill's single in the 14th inning gave the Little Rock Travelers % 12 to 11 decision Tuesday night over the New Orleans Pelicans in the first game of their Shaughnessy playoff series. The Travelers banged out 19 hits and the visitors 16 in a thrill-backed game lasting more 1 than three hours and witnessed by approximately 5,500 howling fans. The two blows that produced the winning tally came with none out. Manager Doc Prothro paraded five of his seven-man pitching staff to the mound but only Kola 'Sharpe, the starter, and Humphreys were effective. Sharpe went out for a pinch- hitter in the sixth. Humphreys held th'e 'Pels scoreless in th'e six innings he Worked. New Orheans used four pitchers, Jakucki being credited with Me loss. ' Humphreys pitched himself out of a hole in the thirteenth when the visit6rs got two men on With none out. New Orleans apparently had put the game on ice in the seventh inning with a seven-run rally featured by Roy Weatherly's triple with the sacks load^ eel. The Travelers came back to tie it nt 11-all with a six run outburst in the eighth climaxed by Art Graham's homer over the right field fence with two aboard. N.

Chicks Win Opener MEMPHIS, Tenn— (O>)— Coaker Triplett's ability to hit won Memphis its Shaughnessy playoff opener Tuesday night with Atlanta, 3 to 2, when the Southern Association's leading hitter singled in the sixth to send Joe Grace across the plate for the winning run. Triplet!, the only Chick to get two hits, shared the spotlight with "Lefty" Mike Martynik, who, after a shaky start, silenced the Cracker bats from the third to the ninth inning. A crowd of 2,586 saw the game. Martynik let Eddie Moore's aggregation down with six hits and registered his 20th victory of the season. In the meantime the Tribe, led by Aandy Reese, Joe Grace and Triplett packed away at Bobby Durham, chubby Cracker righthander, and finally caught up with him in the sixth. Atlanta 020 000 000—2 6 0 Memphis 000 001 20x—3 7 0 Durham and Richards, Martynik and Haley.

Johnson Deplores Feller Ballyhoo; Wouldn't Use Youngster on Sundays CLEVELAND—(NEA)—If Walter Johnson were managing the Cleve. land Indians today he wouldn't tell Bob Feller he was going to pitch until an hour before game time. "That boy is going to be a great pitcher," the Big Train said the other day after seeing Feller in action, "but his main trouble is that he is trying too hard to do something spectacular to please the bi,g crowds. "Years ago I experienced the same thing! I was just a kid and I got a lot of advertising and they used to announce a couple of days ahead that I was going to pitch so that they could capitalize on the publicity. When.' big crowds showed up I had a feclivig that an ordinary performance wouldn't be enough. I felt I had to show them something special. "Feller's the same way. They shouldn't pitch him just on Sundays and they ought not to ballyhoo his appearances." HOLD THAT TIGAH!

Texas Aggie Squad to Be Tough Team Coach ttomet Norton is Gunning for Conference Title This Season COLLEGE STATION, Texas.—</P)Willowy-hipped Dick Todd is ready to deliver the goods.down.at Texas A. and Rt. . • Weighted down • by rtibrc publicity than any sophomore ever carried in the Southwest Conference, Todd, nevertheless, came through last year. Only A cd.nc'ussibn suffered in the Southern Methodist game, which kepf him on the sidelines for weeks, slowed him dbtoh. "He's looser, shiftier and headier than fiver before," quoth Coach Homer Norton as he watched him wiggle away on a tackle thrust. "Furthermore, he has his passing arm 'in the groove" an'd will do most of our throwing and kicking." The timid,.ITSipdund halfback, who carte to college as the high school back whd Scored nearly 700 points in three years, will get the park of a giant Aggie machine expected to reach its highest peak in a decade. Two complete backfields, "most of them just about as gdo'd as the next one," relieve Norton of offensive worries. Slender, dangerous Dick Vitek, quite a runner in his own right, again will pilot the club from quarterback while Todd and Jim Shockey, the southpaw passing expert, will handle the halfbacks. In the fallback position is a comparative neVvcomer, rugged Karl Steffens, 192-pouhder whose spring wdrk an'd early fall practice has lifted him right on the first .string. Fast and powerful, Steffens, who failed-to-letter last'year, will-be the defensive bulwark. ; , Norton admitted that the first four would be stronger offensively with Bob Nesrsta'in, Stef fens' position and indicated there would be considerable alternating betwen the tv/o. He named Nesrsta on- his "B" sqUad, however, along with Waleman Price, a tow-headed sophomore who looks best when he is releasing passes; Bill Audish, 200-pound, sophomore fullback; and Owen (Slick) Rogers, believed by many to bij'as, tricky as Todd with a ball under his arm. Big, well-conditioned and rough, the line, which will average slightly above 200 pounds. Is one that Coach Norton Wilt stack up against any wall in the conference. ' FAINT HOPE OF WINNING * "\Vlth kto trnnth he'd be ebmmplon •ifcntoi" "•••'"- h« f.lni »t the Tigers Pitehlhto Aid Charlie DfetROIt—(NBA)-Charlie Gehringer's '. pitching teammates'' on the Detroit Togies recently dld.all they cbuld to help him in his fight for the American League batting championship, .; They practically eliminated Cecil Travis, Washington shortstop who had been one of Gehringer's chief rivals, by holding him to two"'hits in 20 times at bat during the three-game ; series.with the Nationals. ' Travis saw his average slump down to .348, 35 points behind Gehringer whose closest rivals now are Lou Gehrig and -Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees. . . • show me two finer guards in nation than Joe Routt, our all- America last year, and Virgil Jones, one of the cleverest defensive linemen I've ever watched," chirped Norton. 'I don't.believe you'll find them." Routt, -a burly 200-pounder "who doesn't love anybody once he gets on that field," and Jones,/expert diagrios:- er of pass plays from his line-backing post, will be flanked at the tackles by Roy Young ail-conference giant at 'X an'd either Joe Boyd, Ml Mihhbck or George Braiison. It's a three-way scrap between those last named and even Norton isn't sure who will make' the grade. ' ' '.'•••' Three ends are available for the first string, and Norton again isn't certain who they will be. Rankin Britt, 215- pounder, better an'd faster than he 'was last year; Bruno Schroedr, one-time first string fullback who laid out Isat year; and Bill Eea'go, demon pass snagger, are his best bets.' "There's ho cause to worry about cehter, for there Stormy 5Zed Coston, six fotot, two inch. 226-pound junior who has never been injured, will be stationed. He is alto due to do Some pUhtihg—Norton's hiBjor wwrry.- • If Todd, NesrsU, Steffehs and Shockey don't come through in ; the'.kicking department, it is likely Coston will Be .pulled out of the line on fourth down kicks, thus causing .Young to shift over from a tackle for the snapback; Norton, however, doesn't .want,to resort, to such a switch unless it is ini^ perative.
