'Crucial Series' Starts Between Dodgers, Cards By JUDSON BAILEY Associated press Sports Writer An early blooming "crucial series" sprouted today in Brooklyn with the Dodgers matched against the world champion SI. Louis Cardinals in a twilight tussle al Ebbels Field. Few doubt that these two teams have the National League pennant struggle entirely between themselves and every garri.e they play wilh each other, even this early in the season, will have an important bearing on the championship. For this reason the slate in their first three - game series is much greater than temporary possession of the league load. In the opener Frank (Rube)' Mellon is expected lo be matched on the mound wilh Lofty Howard Pollel of Ihe Redbirds. The Dodgers prepared for Ihe invasion by cuffing Ihe Chicago Cubs Iwice in a doublehcadcr yes- lerday, 4-0 and 3-2. Ed Head pitched the shutout, spacing five hits in a duel wilh Lon Warncke, who kept Brooklyn scoreless till the eighth, when the Dodgers bunched all their runs in one turn at bat as Dolph Camilli singled for two and Paul Waner doubled for two more. Bobo Ncw- som relieved Kirby Higbe in the nightcap and propelled himself to his fourth victory by singling home Ihe deciding run in Ihe sevenlh. In Ihe meanlime Ihe Cardinals were held to a draw in two games wilh Ihe rambundlious Phillies before a crowd of 30,823 al Philadelphia, Ihe clay's largest turn out in the majors and the second largest crowd ever to see a National League game in Ihe Quaker Cily. Howard Krisl pitched six-hit ball in a joust with Schoolboy Rowe in Ihe first game, but was forced to 11 innings before gelling a 4-8 decision on While Kurowski's squeeze bunt. The Phillies bounded back lo take the second 21 with rookie Al Gerheauser, a Sure Way*to Get a Strike Manross, loft, her ball about to make crash landing, and Mar- iettn Longley roll as, team simultaneously on same alley in Chicago aircraft plant, ono releasing ball splil second ahead of partner to keep them from colliding. Advocates claim that, for women, new is faster, more exciting than old. It also affords'more kcglers opportunity to bowl on crowded hardwood. SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON, JR.

Out Variety This Season By BURGESS DAMRON Atlanta, May 17 —(/P)— If it's variety you're looking for, it's ever present in the Southern Association. A squint at yesterday's re- sulls will convince you that anything can, and probably will, happen. At Little Rock, the Travelers unleashed all their batting fury in the first contest of a twin bill to hammer out 25 base hits and 20 runs, beating New Orleans 20-3. New Orleans copped the night cap 9-4. The second runway came at Chattanooga as Nashville scored 14 runs lo 5 for the Lookouts in the 'irst game of their double * header.

There was a possessiveness about her whole attitude that irked Beth Carter. "Lieutenant Carter, this is Miss Lita Danton," Brit said. 9 "How do you do," Beth said. "You dear girl—you're dressed so oddly," was Lita's answer. Beth steeled herself and kept back the retort. Lita knew instinctively that her presence disturbed Be^th, and she was satisfied in the recognition. Perhaps this girl's anger would prove useful someday, she thought. Besides, who was any girl to take a moment of any man's time if Lita wanted that moment? "It seems so odd, calling a woman by art army officer's title," Lita continued. "So out of place —you know. Oh, I suppose I'm old-fashioned, and believe a woman's place is in a man's arms." Beth made no reply. Majoi Jackson was maneuvering Lita Uanton away. "Lita, how on earth did you get here, and what are you doing n this part Ox the world?" Jackson asked. "You thought I was 5000 miles away, didn't you?" Lita asked. "I confess I did." * * * JETH felt very uncomfortable. Lita was monopolizing Brit now, and there seemed no part of the present instant that belonged to Beth. "No, my darling boy, I'm not 5000 miles away. I'm like the proverbial bad penny." "Yes," Beth thought, "and perhaps in more ways than one." "I told you I'd show up just when you least expected me to," Lita purred. "You've lost track of me, but I've followed you all these years—through your joining up and getting a commission and being promoted to a major's rank." "I was lucky," Brit said. Brit's thoughts went back to the time he first knew Lita. She had been a glamorous woman reporter when he was still an undergraduate at Berkeley. Lila Danton was sophisticated and worldly wise even then, and he had felt quite sophisticated himself escorting her to the rough- and-tumble waterfront dance halls that came back to life with 3.2 beer. "From second lieutenant to major in a year." Lita spoke flatteringly. "Why, you were only a second lieutenant three months. I think you are someone wortl watching." "Better get the FBI, then," Bri joked. Beth fancied she saw a trace of a shadow cross Lita's face. Bu it disappeared into a torrent oi light conversation. Belli tried to estimate the woman. She was furious at Lita foi icr deliberate sarcasm and snubs. She was furious at Brit Jackson 'or letting Lita get away with it. And finally she was furious at icrself, for allowing the incident 0 hurt her. It was a situation lardly proscribed for in Army Regulations. Brit had told Belli she was the only woman on this remote Pacific sland. Now Lita had appeared. Was Brit's surprise entirely real? 'How's everything back in San Francisco?" Brit asked Lita. "I haven't been there for the longest time," Lila answered, affectedly. "I've been working out in the Orient. Very interesting work. Brit, dear, I've learned a smattering of two languages since we last saw each other." "Your progress is amazing," Beth said. * * * T ITA turned toward her with a 1 "What, are you still here?" glance. "Yes, I think so," Lita said. "I think so. And I think a considerable number of other persons think so, too." "I'm sure they do," Beth said. Now she was angry at herself again, for entering into such a verbal exchange. Lila took Brit Jackson's arm. "We must go for a stroll. Wo haven't seen eacli other for so long," she said. "Where do you want to take me—down this path, or to your headquarters?" "We'll, to tell you the truth . . ." "I never like the truth," Lita said gaily. "It will be your headquarters." She turned to Beth. "Goodby Lieutenant . . . Lieutenant . . . Oh, Lieutenant What's Your Name. Sorry I forgot, but 1 never remember women's names. No difference, I can always call you Lieutenant. I presume you and the major always call each other by your military titles, don't you?" She smiled saccharinely.

Bombs hit the gas works, causing a huge explosion in the cer.ter of town. Other bursts were observed near the Trapani railway station and near 'the barracks to Ihe north. All aerial operations cost three Allied planes. Coastal air force patrols knocked down two German planes, a .Tun- kcrs-88 bomber north of Bone, Alberia, and a Junkers-52 transport encountered during sweeps along Ihe coasts of Sardinia, Sicily and Southwest Italy. Malta -based planes were credited with destruction of three other German planes, a JU-88 and two JU-52S. "Last night out intruders attacked shipping and communications in western and southern Italy, many strikes being seen," said the RAF communique issued at Malta. The tabulation of prisoners captured in the final battle of Tunisia disclosed 27 generals among the captives, estimated to total about 175.000. It was announced lhal 190 Germans were captured by British naval units with the occupation last week of Zembra island, in the Gulf of Tunis 10 miles west of Cap Bon. A short distance off the island eight Germans and two Italian girls who had attempted lo escape lo Sicily in a small barge were picked up. The Germans were rawing the barge with garden spades.
