Ry CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO, June 5, #~Bob Rush and his fantom pitch are making suckers of National League slug" gers. "That's a good name for his speed ball", said Disay Dean who watched the 6 foot 5 inch Chicago Cub righthander set down the New York Giants on six hits and a 6-2 decision for his seventh straight win yesterday. "The ; y can't see It, and even if they do it does funny tricks," coto- tinued Dean, once the blazing-ball ace of the senior circuit. "I've seen Rush in three games this year and he's the fastest pitchqr int he league. I'll bet he'll cad in pitching this season, should get 20 wins easily." Dean makes a swooping gesture with his hand when trying to describe Rush's phantom ball. "It comes in fast and hopping ike", he appraised. "Rush has a curve, but he doesn't need to show it much— iust enough to give the batters a smell of it now and then. Rush, himself, calls his pitch "a sinking fast ball." "I think my good start this season can be credited to control more than anything .else", big Bob explained. "I've only given up one walk in my last 18 innings and 18 n my last 64. That's what I keep track of, those walks. They'll kill any pitcher." Rush said he won't average in-owing 10 curves per game, rely- 'ng almost entirely on the fast one, Rush has an 8-2 mark for the season and a year ago it took him until Aug. 7 to bag his seventh riumph. He finished with 11-12 and never has had more victories han losses since joining the Cubs in 1948. ., The Giants' two runs yesterday came in the fourth inning with the aid of an error that made only one of them earned. It cost Rush a chance for four straight shutouts to match a National League record and snapped his streak of complete scoreless innings at 32. In his last 64 innings he has yielded only 35 hits and five earned mns while fanning 37 batsmen. He whiffed seven Giants yesterday to take over the league's strikeout lead with a total of 53.

And, while the simpering heroine with :he blonde tressos finally escaped the clutches of the snarling, mustached villain, the Oilers were captured by misfortune. On May 8, the Oilers were lead- ng Edwardsville, 2-0, in the last half of the fifth inning of a ball _;ame at the county seat. Two were out? Retirement of one more bat- :er would bring victory to the Oil- ers. Then the rains came. The game was called. The game wasn't com- ilete, so it was rescheduled. The team met again Tuesday. This time the Tigers won a nip-and- ucker, 9-8, The victory gave Edwardsville a irst-place tie in the Southwestern Conference with Granite City, and eft the Oilers, with a 3-2 record. led for third. Had one more out been registered back on May 8, he Oilers record would be 4-2, vith the team knocking at the irst-place door, But the race is over now, and he Oilers have plenty of com- 'laint against the fate and the weather man. In this week's game, the Tigers rolled up ten hits to Wood River's eight. Behind Leonard McCor- Imick's pitching, the Oilers erred four times. Edwardsville had two bobbles. Dean Fletcher hurled for the winners.

Their record now stands at five victories and no defeats. They halved the matches once. Mrs. Frank Goldthwaite of Fort Worth, the non-playing captain, must select six players from among Mae Murry of Rutland, Vt.; Dot Kirby of Atlanta; Pollie Riley of Fort Worth; Grace De Moss of Corvallis, Ore; Pat O'Sullivan of Orange, Conn.; Marjorie Lindsay of Decatur, HI., and Claire Doran of Cleveland. ' By OACB 1ALBOT PHILADELPHIA, June 5-^»This is, at last, the night for which (he boxing elan has been waiting. That is, it's the night everyone has been anxious to get out of the way in order to begin concentrating on the "big" scrap between Sugar Ray Robinson and Joey Maxim on June 23 in New York. The International Boxing Club, which owns the principals in tonight's bout between Ezzard Charles and Jersey Joe Walcott, as well as Robinson and Maxim, has been in an awkward position for several weeks. The monopoly has had to go through the motions of whooping hltings up for Walcott, who seems to be the heavyweight champion, and Charles, his favorite opponent. But, at the same time, it plainly was not to the IBC's advantage to knock itself out on this one when it has the year's choicest event coming up in less than three weeks. The result has been a publicity campaign marked by fine moderation and restraint. The t winner probably will be Charles. If he doesn't do it this time, Ezzard will the next time they meet, or the time after that. Sponer or later the'only base fiddle player among the heavyweights will become the first man ever to regain his title. We will continue to pick him until he does. There appears to be no "outsider" capable of giving either Charles or Walcott much trouble. Seldom in boxing history must two heavyweights have dominated the field so thoroughly. Rock Marciano is a faint threat to the combine, but very faint in our opinion. Rocky's best bet is to lie low for three or four more years and then grab the title by default. Milton, Wood River to Play League Game Milton will play Wood River, Sunday, in a Trades & Labor league game. The contest will begin at 2:30 p. m., on the Western diamond at East Alton. Cotton has become the largest money crop of California farmers. WalcottDefends Crown Against Charles Today Ex-Champion Favored to Regain Title By MURRAY ROSE PHILADELPHIA, June 5. !P~ The fourth episode In the Jersey Joe Walcott-Ezzard Charles series will be unreeled tonight with Charles rated a 2 to 1 favorite to make boxing history and become the first heavyweight king to win back his crown. Forecasts of fair weather for the 9 p. m. (Alton time) 15-rounder in Municipal Stadium boosted Promoter Herman Taylor's confidence that about 35,000 will pay $250,000 to see the scrap. The bout will be broadcast and tetlecast coast-to-coast with a 75 mile area around Philadelphia blacked out of the telecast. It was in Pittsburgh last July 18 that the heavy-fisted, thick- armed Walcott uncorked a perfect left hook to knock out the champion in the seventh round. "I'll be out to knock him out again", said the 38-year-old Camden miracle man in his last public statement. "I've got his number and he knows it." "He's got the title. I'll have to go after him and get it", said the solemn-faced and determined Charles. If the challenger follows through on his statement the fight could be the best of the series that started with a waltz in Chicago, picked up a little steam in Detroit and really started to blaze in Pittsburgh. Walcott, a superb counter- puncher with a kayo wallop in either hand, is in a perfect spot to suck Ezzard into a trap. As Ezzard pointed out, he will have to make the fight. This writer believes that Charles will be able to stop the champion within 12 rounds. Ezzard expects to weigh 192 pounds—heaviest of his career. Nearing 31, he has grown into a fullfledged heavyweight. He Is sacrificing some of his speed for power. The 192 pounds will be ten more than he packed for his losing fight in Pittsburgh.
