The team, at present, is riding the crest of a four game winning •iM'fmlt, which brought them from liolr last place position, and has them now surging to the lead In tho first division. The additions of mich High school stars of this year's championship team as Ar- munaitls, DeCarlo and San Angelo has aided them immensely, and also the addition to .the team of Clag- liorn, will be a determining factor In thrjir second division bid for the title. Regardless of their position at Hit; I'iirl of thessasoti, though, they have proved to the locals that they, the Grays, have what I', tnlti's. and we congratulate them for their I nccompilshmeiKs .thus far this year | and also wish them good luck for 'Brooklyn the remainder of the season.

SALEM PLAYHOUSE Today -Wednesday WRrcoopiS' -JHaitoPolo BASIL RATHBONI SIOBID'OUHII Also "The Phantom Thief" Sports Chatterbox By JACK DARBY •^OBMBIB* ' M^^HB^^^M The All-Star Game AJo see by our. ca'enuar lhat Baseball's Annual All-Star ga.mc s only a week away, and there- ore have decided to give the "exerts" sonic competition in select ig this year's crop of stars to le American and National Leagu quads. The contest is schedule or next Tuesday, July 9th, at Fan vay- Park in Boston, and wit! oEt-war bneeba!H enjoying a grea> boom" in attendance and per ormnnces the game should offe blowers -of our National Pr.stimi . great many thrills ' and ; excite meriti It is fitting that the game is to be played in the Red Sox home park, as we pick no less than six Boston players on our 20 man American League roster. As foi the National League it seems only appropriate that Brooklyn's beloved "Bums" and -the St. Louis Cardinals should dominate the player! lists, and as we see it both the league leading Breaks and the 2nd place Cards have six men apiece on the alJ-etar team. Now here are the lineups that this column thinks can offer the bost in both offensive power and defensive strength for- the two leagues, maybe you won't agree with us man for man but you'll have to admit they are both pretty strong combinations. We are picking two men for each position along with four starting pitchers. For the American league (Who we pick to pin) 1st Base: Greenberg (Det), Vernon (Wash); 2nd Base: Doerr (Bost), Berardino (St. L); Short-stop: Stephens (St. L.), Pesky (Bost); 3rd. base: Johnson (N. Y.), Keltner (Clcve); Outfielders: Williams (Bost), J. DiMaggio (N. .Y.), Labbs'(St. L), W. DIMag- gio (Bostr. Keller (N. Y.), Spence (Wash); Catchers: Hobinson (N. Y;), Rosar (Phil), and the pitchers, Harris (Bost), Feller (Clove) Chandler (N. Y.), and Ferris (Bost). -The above team averages better than .320 in batting percentages and the hurlers have a combined record of 46 wins and 13 defeats. - 'Now. -for the National League we have selected the following players; Isl Base: Mize (N Y) Muaial (St. Lj; 2nd Base; Stanky (Brook), -Shoendiest (St. L.)- Shortstop: Marion (St. L), Reese (Brook); 3rd Base: Hack (Chic) Kurowskf (St. L.); Outfielders:' Walker (Brook), Hopp (Bost) E n - nis (Phil), Holmes (Bost), Reiser (Brcok), Slaughter (St. L); Catchers: Musi (Bost), W. Cooper (N Y ) Pitchers: Higbe (Brook), Passea'u ' Ch jf'' Pcllot ^t. LJ, and Lombard! (Brook). The.National League g'; ou P 's batting about 12 points lower than the American. whil2 their pitchers have chalked up 30 victories and lost but''8 times. In case you are wondering why v.'e arc picking the American League to win, we will quote so'me very interesting figures 6n that all important subject, home runs. The junior circuit lads listed above i have clouted ISO so far this sca- ison as against a mere 66 for ,the National League boys. Also the "Runs butted in" out-put for the A. L. is aU-out 25 per cent higher than the senior circuit, and .these lire the things that win ball games you know. Now that you have all the nu.m«» and statistic:; in mind, just let us remind you that in Baseball "Anything can happen," perhaps that is why the game is our National Pastime, but anyway with all these stars on one field you cun be sure 01' one thing-, and that is there will not be a dull moment next Tuesday in JSVnway Park. Incidentally it will also be interesting to see just how many -of the players we have selected above are actually picked by the rival league managers who have the last say on the "oJUici.il" Jine-ups, Joe Snmoska, manager of the Bnisscoa, announced last night the signing of Walt Gathman, Yale University pitcher. Oathman teamed up wi-th Frank Quinn to pitch the Ells to the JSustern Inter.-collegiate 'League championship this year and will be discharged shortly from the Navy V-12. He will con.tinue his studies at Yale and join the Brass- cos for Friday's game with the Phillies at 4:30. With three important clashen this week Mgr. Samoska has a well fortified mound corps, including Gathman, Kenny Ketch, Bill Knfta, and I.efty Bill Wheeler. Wheeler, former rooundsman for Minneapolis, is expected to face the Phillies here Friday. Kufta will face the Atlanta Black Yankees Wednesday night at S:45.
