Vernon's Veteran Pitchers; Quincy Smith Rops 6 For 8; Howleymen In Third Spot, 2 Games Behind Centrolia With Two More Twinbills Comng Up. BY JOHN BACKAWAY The potent Paris Lakers knocked Mt. Vernon out of second place in the M-O-Valley pennant race last night by clubbing Chuck Haw ley's locals in both ends of a doubleheoder at Paris by scores of 9-1 and 15-3. Over 900 Parig baseball fans paid at the gate on a threatening night to watch their heroes knock out Mt. Vernon's two veteran moundsnien, Frank "Lefty" Brookman and manager Hawley. The double-defeat slapped the Kings down to third place in the League, two full games behind the Centralia Zeros who were rained out last night. Paris climbed to within one-half notch of the league lead. The first-half of the M-0- Valley race ends on July 4. Last night's debacle had its ironic twists. Baseball is a strange and fascinating game. The last time that the Kings had played Paris, Mt. Vernon was the winner, 21-1. Can pitching make that much difference? Also especially bitter was the fact that Bill Berraan went the route for Paris to win the nightcap. Just last Saturday mataager Hawley of the Kings had released Berman. He went to Paris and Joined the Lakers. Berman beat Hawley last night. After the second doubleheader at Paris tonight, the Kings, who have found it almost impossible to win on the road during the past (Fii-st Game) MT.

Phillies Sign Quincy Catcher By Associated Prass CHICAGO, June 26. — Willard McCulla, Quincy (111.) College catcher who hit .385 in 22 games, has signed with the Philadelphia Phils, scout Jim KeowTi announced today. Keown, who signed the strap ping 185 pounder, said McCulla will be sent to Terre Haute, Ind., in the Class B Three I League next season. He said the 19-year- old catcher will play semi-pro ball this summer with a home town team in McHenry, 111. couple of weeks, return to the friendly confines of Veterans Park for a crucial series with Centralia. A twin bill is scheduled for Wednesday night with a single contest on Thursday. Mt. Vernon got just two hits off Herb Heiserer in last night's op- -ener. The Paris righthander was nicked for a run in the first inning. Jiut One Good Hit Fichtel and Gaebe walked and Solorzano beat out an infield hit when the pitcher and third baseman Krsnich got their signals mixed in fielding a sacrifice bunt. Popovich then grounded into a doubleplay, Fichtel scoring on the play. That was all the scoring for Ml. Vernon. Fichtel doubled in the third inning for the only real base knock off of Heiserer. He was cut down in a doubleplay, the second of six twin-killings which the Lakers executed during the two games. Meanwhile Brookman was being ta«Ked hard. Quincy Smith, the Lakers' Negro star outflelder who had (tlx hits in eight trips in the twin bill, drove in three runs off Lefty In the first Inning. His hit, a •ingle, batted In a pair of runs Md he came all the way to score when Popovich juggled the hit in center. Brookman gave up 11 hits and 8 runs in the four and one-third innings before Ray Ambrose came to the hill in relief. It was Lefty's fourth loss as against nine wins. Hawley went 5 and 2-3 frames in the nightcap before he was shelled to cover and once more Ambrose came in to finish up Manager Chuck was tagged for 8 runs on 10 hits. Ambrose gave up six hits and 7 runs in the final two and one-third innings. Berman walked nine batters but was pulled out of jams by four doubleplays. The final two innings of the game were played in a light rain. It's Quincy Again After three scoreless innings the Kings took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth. However, Q. Smith homered off Hawley to tie at 1-1 in the last of the fourth, then Paris counted four times in the fifth with Smith's double with the bases loaded being the big blow of the inning.

By Atlociatad Prasi CEDAR RAPIDS, la., June 26. — How does baseball's richest rookie at the promising age of 18 react to his sudden fame? The rookie is Billy Joe Davidson of Marion, N. C, the Cleveland Indians' $120,000 prep sensation farmed out to Cedar Rapids of the Class B Three-I League. Th& big (6 foot-3 inch, 210 pounds) freckle - faced pitcher's start in professional ball was anything except sensational. But to Cleveland stockholders. Cedar Rapids players, opponents and fans the red head still has "plenty on the ball." Davidson's inauspicious beginning in the professional ranks was made June 13. In a one-inning relief stint he.gave up three runs on four walks, a wild pitch and a single as Cedar Rapids lost. Since then Davidson has pitched in relief three times and started his first game against Waterloo on June 18. "I just didn't have it at all," was the bonus kid's unhappy self- appraisal after he was belted from tlie mound. Davidson gave up two run.s, five hits, six walks and struck out two in 5 2-3 innings. For the record, Billy Joe has neither won nor lost a gam^ in five appearances. He has given up eight runs, 10 hits, 14 walks, two wild pitches, five earned runs and fanned only four in 13 innings. "Joe needs work, plenty of work," Cedar Rapids manager Kirby Farrell says. "If I'm not ready the next time I pitch it won't be Kirby's fault," Davidson agrees. Cleveland general manager Hank Greenberg said when he signed Davidson after Billy Joe's graduation from Oak Ridge, N. C, military Academy on May 29: "Davidson will get a chance to work regularly and build up his confidence." . Davidson asked to be .sent to the minors for seasoning. Davidson, a rather quiet youth who does not try to push liimself to the front among the players, is popular with his teammate.s. "He's a good sport," Davidson's catcher Chuck Balciulis saiy of him. "I suppose folks have been disappointed in him .so far, but he'll show 'em when he gets his legs and arm in shape." Although already called the "Lefthand Bob Feller" it is apparent now that the sports writers' tag is not quite appropriate—not yet, at least. One wi'iter viewing Davidson for the first time asked: "Is this Davidson another Feller or just another fella?" Billy Joe had a terrific record of no-hitters and strikeouts in American Legion, prep school and semi-pro baseball in his home state. Davidson worries more ai^out his fielding than he does about his early pitching performances or the jibes from sideline jockeys—"At­ taboy, Billy, hitch up that money belt," whenever he nervously fingers tlie belt to his uniform. Manager Farrell said "Joe hasn't been throwing with lialf of liis stuff. We know he's got - it. It's just a question of time until it shows. He's a big leaguer, but he has some work to do before he gets there." Cedar Rapids fans and teammates are most sympathetic to the reportedly highest priced player to break into organized baseball. One mate summed up the situation quite capably: "Don't worry, Billy Joe, it's a long season." LIHLE SPORT By Rouson BY CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO, June 26.—Manager Paul Richards assured Chicago's pennant-starved White Sox fans today that his American League leaders will never quit—aftd by that he means there is no bubble that's going to break. With the midway mark in the season approaching, ' Richards would like to see the Sox in the lead July 4, the traditional date on which the top club theoretically become the one to beat for the pennant. Returning home with an even break in 16 road games, the White Sox have not fully been accepted in that category—opposing managers just can't believe they're that good. They have held the lead since May 28, but now are only one game in front whereas they were 2V2 before starting east two weeks ago, Upwards of 40,000 customers, given warmer weather, are expected to pile into Comiskey Park tonight as the Sox open a nine-game home stand against western clubs. The first visitors are the Detroit Tigers whose manager. Red Rolfe, picked the Comiskeys to finish last and has never yet conceded they have the slightest pennant possibilities. "If there is one thing of which I am certain," says Richards, "the White Sox don't know the meaning of the word 'quit.' They have become tough enough to throw off pressure." Richards analyzed that bases on balls hurt most during the eastern swing when they lost five one-run games, three of these being in the 11th inning. Sox hurlers issued 53 walks on the 16-game trip. "Of course, our pitchers have been tired," says Richards. "They have had to work on short rest. But you can't walk a couple of guys to open an inning and expect to win. "The base on balls will always beat you. The pass is not the same as a base hit, it's worse. If you make a batter hit, you have a chance to catch the ball or throw him out." In summing up the League, Richards rates Detroit as dangerous as the Yankees or Red Sox. "If we are to consider ourselves flag contenders," observers Richards, "it will be a question of whether our pitching can stand up—whether it can match Yankee pitching. That may be pretty hard to do." He isn't so sure that the Red Sox pitching wiil take it—"you just can't keep bringing guys in for relief every day and expect their arms to hold up." As for Detroit, Richards tabs This Kid Has Good News for Joe DiMaggio By Assaciatad Prti* BALTIMORE, June 26.—Jimmy Kennedy will have some good news to tell Joe DiMaggio tonight in Washington. Eleven-year-old Jimmy is going over to the Washington-New York game to renew his acquaintance with the Yankee clipper. Their friendship started in a New York hospital about six years ago. Di Maggio and other baseball stars visited him while Jimmy was a patient with a stomach cancer. The outlook was pretty bleak for Jimmy then. He'd been in hospitals most of his young life. Four years ago his family moved to Baltimore where Johns Hopkins doctors finally cured him with the last of 14 operations. Jimmy entered public school for the first time last September. And he also started playing baseball himself. Pretty good, too, he can tell DiMaggio. He pitched his team into the finals of the Baltimore Cub League with a record of six victories and two defeats. The "thickheaded little Scotsman," as his mother describes him, lists DiMaggio and former ace relief pitcher Joe Page of the Yankees among his two greatest idols. So he'll be the guest of the Yank.s tonight. But where does he want to play in the major leagues? The Boston Red Sox, no less. BY JOE REICHIJTR Associated Press Sports Writer Back in 1934 Bill Terry, then manager of New York's world champion Giants, was asked what he thought of the dreary Brooklyn Dodgers. "Are they still in the League?" he retorted. Now 17 yeare later, another Giants manager, Leo Durocher, will attempt to prove that the Dodgers are still in the League. Pacing the pack by six full games, the Dodgers appear to be a league all by themselves. They are threatening to make a shambles of the pennant race in the national circuit. The responsibility of halting the Brooklyn runaway rests squarely on the Giants. The bitter interborough rivals open a vital three-game series tonight at the Polo Grojjnds. The general feeling is that "the Giants must win at least two out of throe to convince themselves, along with the rest of the circuit, that the chase is not hopeless. The rivals clash in another three-game sot in Brooklyn next week. Although the Giants won nine and lost four in the west, they failed to gain an inch on the Dodgers. They did, however, climb from fourth to second to clearly mark themselves as Brooklyn's strongest challenger. There is a side issue to the Dodger-Giant battles. That is the threat of beanball hostilities. The two teams have not met since April 30 when some of the Brooklyn hitters accused pitchers Sal Maglie of throwing at them. A brush between Maglie and Jackie Robinson almost erupted into serious trouble. Nobody knows what to expect. "I don't know yet what I'm going to do," League President Ford Frick said. "I might issue instructions to Managers Durocher and Dressen. I haven't decided yet.'" Dressen has Preacher Roe (100), his unbeaten southpaw, ready for tonight. He'll be opposed by Maglie (11-3). The Dodgers may be without the services of Gil Hodges, the slugging first baseman who leads the • majors with 24 home runs. FDdges injured his left instep in Sunday's doublehader in Pittsburgh and did not see action last night in Brooklyn's exhibition game against the New York Yankees. In conti-ast to the National, the American League appears set for a blistering pennant race with Chicago's White Sox, New York's Yankees, Cleveland's Indians and Boston's Red Sox all figuring prominently. Their once - comfortable 4',L- cushion deflated to one game, the White Sox hope to regain some lost ground in the next two weeks. They open against Detroit tonight at home, where they remain for nine games before moving to Cleveland at St. Louis for seven more. They split 16 games on their just-completed e a s t e r/i swing. Manager Paul Richards has nominated Randy Gumpert (7-1) to oppose the Tigers. Bob Cain (6-4) will oppose his former teammates. New York's runnerup Yankees visit Washington for the first of three games. Ed Lopat (10-2-) is slated to oppose Washington's Con Marreo (6-4). The Red Sox ^open a two-game home stand against the hot Philadelphia Athletics. Mel Parnell (8-4) win oppose Bob Hooper (2-5). Cleveland, glad to get away from the Yankees Stadium, where they dropped three straight to extend their non-winning skein to 11 in a row in New York, are back home to meet the last-place St. Louis Browns. In other games, the St. Louis Cardinals play host to Chicago's Cubs, the Phils' take on the Boston Braves in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh engages the Reds in Cincinnati.

The Athletics are better as the result of trades. They can score plenty of runs in their own park. Washington may show improvement as the result of last minute deals."
