AGE SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Brooklyn May Be Knocked Out of First Place By JUDSON BAILEY Associated press Sports Writer The Brooklyn Dodgers are in t&e position of the noisy tenants •who are going to get kicked out of their top floor apartment as soon as the lease expires. The Bums have been occupying Ike penthouse of the National league ever since the season started, but two consecutive defeats by the St . Louis Cardinals have placed them in jeopardy of losing their first place perch — not to the world champions but to the Boston Braves. Boston, with good pitching and a surprisingly well balanced attack, has won seven straight games, including a double header yesterday from the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 in II innings and 5-3. If the Braves should win again today and the Dodgers lose. Boston would move into top place by a percentage margin of .652 to .630. This is enough to boost the blood pressure in Brooklyn to the berling pernt, because the Dodgers have not shown to advantage in the first three games of their four-game series with St. Louis. They were smothered by southpaw ptiching again yesterday. 3-2 as Max Lanier and Rookie Harry Btecheen combined to hold them to six hits. The Cardinals counted a run in the first inning when Stan Musial scored all the way from 1 first base on a terrific single by Walker Cooper and they cinched the game on Coaker Triplett's two run homer in the sixth. ^LLTSTBWW^ISTNT&THESEA i American and French soldiers may be rolling down this road into Bizcrtc in a matter of days as our forces close in | on this axis base from two sides.

(4) The answer to the pleas of our Pacific allies and commander for more air strenglh in that thea- ler isn't now going lo be long delayed. The Axis in Europe is still No. 1 on our list but by the brutal execution of those captured American flyers of the Doolittle raid on Tokyo and by massing air i slrenglh in the South Pacific out| posts, Japan has brought about what no pleas heretofore had availed — the promise of Washing- Ion lo do somelhing immedialely. (5) Probably most important of all, the winler and spring of 1943 likely will go down in military history as the period when airpower, in so far as Ihe U. S. mililary is concerned, at least, came into its own.

But instead Willie and Sal signed for the Boston bout, so the commission refused to rec- orgnize it as a tille scrap and picked Phil Terranova for the elimination ... A lot of things seem to call for explanations, including how Massachusetts, a N.B.A. state, can recognize Pep- Bartolo as a tille scrap while Jackie Callura is N.B.A. champ. . . But Mack's holler is that Uncle Mike told the commission lo say "no" because he wanted the fight for himself, or at least a good piece of the profits . . .

Mitchell as the state legislature approved a bill restoring forfeited rights to a man convicted of stealing two chickens and ten steaks: "The chair still doubts that it's possible." He was assured that the offense occurred in pro-rationing days. Don't get the idea that any of the foregoing implies an early end to this war. Nor does it mean that the use of airpower will disappear from the theater of controversy. Extremists among the airpower advocates undoubtedly will continue to shout that total victory can be obtained by planes alone. The more cautious will point to the Luftwaffe's failure to knock Britain out of the war or even to soften it up to a point where invasion was certain of success. Extremists on the ground side will continue to insist that airpower is nothing but long range artillery mounted on wings and only important in aiding men on land and ships at sea. Probably what is happening is a distillatoin of all these opinions into the really effective use of aii power as a striking weapon, bu' that's practically in the strato sphere compared to where we won a couple of years ago. Today's Guest Star Wendell Lalime, Nesvport (Vt.) Daily Express: "Coach Bill McCarthy of N.Y.U.'s championship Baseball squad has achieved his iest record in 22 years of coach- ng there.
