If they sell out the Polo grounds tonight and the Cleveland stadium, tomorrow night, the Bat and Ball fund still will get omy $100,000, which will buy only about 22 per cent o£ the equipment that the soldiers and sailors have asked · for.

(/P)For perhaps the first time since baseball's annualall-star classic was inaugurated 10 years ago, the National league's standard bearers will, be the- logical favorites when they clash with the American leaguers at 6:30 (EWT) this evening in the Polo Grounds. Trailing three victories to six in the previous games, the National leaguers are' seriously determined to win this one on superior pitching and to whittle down the advantage the junior circuit has built up by its vastly greater slugging ability. Loss of three of their principal stars of last year's triumph at Detroit -- Bobby Feller, Cecil Travis and Bill Dickey--has weakened the American leaguers, , The Nationals not only boast their usual fine set of pitchers, but they will go into today s game fortified by a group of hitters who, by the averages at least, stack up right alongside their rivals' star maulers. Another point: The Nationals appear to have a superior incentive to win They have been deadly serious in their preparations, to such an extent that President Ford Frick made a special request that five crack pitchers be given adequate rest. With Manager Joe McCarthy of the American leaguers ill all the past week in Buffalo, the Americans apparently had Httle opportunity to make any such extensive provisions. F.or still another reason, the National leaguers would love to win this one. The team that is in front when the last put is made under the'lights tonight will hustle for Cleveland to appear against.Lieut. Mickey Cochrane's service all-stars in a.second benefit game trmorrow night. It would give the Nationals particular delight to represent the big leagues in an American league city. NEW YORK, July 6. (#)--An injury to Paul Derringer of the Cincinnati -Reds has disturbed the personnel of the National league in tonight's major league all-star game and a 20-m!nute blackout, of the entire Metropolitan area threatens to disturb the game's 50,000 customers. . - . · : · · Derringer was pushed entirely off the Nationals' roster when he stopped a line drive with his knee in Pittsburgh yesterday. To add to the confusion, two National league officials each named a different substitute for him. That minor dif ficulty will be remedied in a con ferenca sometime today.. Mayor LaGuardla has called a blackout for 9:30 p. m.--just two minutes after the deadline which the Army granted the baseball officials for turning off the lights In the Polo grounds. The Army has ruled that the lights must be darkened one hour after sundown. It is possible that many of the 50,000 customers may still be in the stands or en route to their, homes when the sirens wail. Under black out law, no persons are allowed oi; the streets. Sports Mirror Br ASSOCIATED PRESS Yeaf Ago Today--60,948 spectators jammed Yankee stadium to watch Joe DiMaggio belt out six hits in doubleheader and extend hitting streak to 48 games. Three years. ago--Alice Marble, U. S., gained Wimbledon tennis semi-finals by defeating Mrs, Hilda Krahwinkle Sperling, 6-0, 6-0.
