The Dodgers open a four-game series at St. Louis and all they have to do to keep the Redbirds on their roost in second place is get a split. The senior circuit rivals divided their first four - game ser ies in Brooklyn. It took the Yankees a week to get the traffic ticup at the top ol the American League untangled The champions were bumped out of the lead at Cleveland on May 23 and up until yesterday had been pushed into We background while the Indians and Washington Sen ators scrambled for first place honors. , n But yesterday, before the larg est crowd of the season, aO.ei paid, the Yankees swept a double header from Cleveland 4-3 and 3- to regain the lead as Washingtp lost twice to the Chicago """ f Sox 5-2 and 5-1. The turnover at the top ot in American League was only one of many interesting items as the major leagues put on the first half of their double - barreled Memorial Day celebration before a total paid attendance of 172.984. All clubs will play doubleheaders again today. The Philadelphia Athletics swept two games from. the St. Louis •> Browns 3-0 and 4-1 and moved into third place in the junior circuit.

Each team copped a twin bill, Atlanta pouncing on the Memphis Chicks for 1-0 and 6-4 victories, Birmingham taking Knoxville s measure 11-4 and 4-3 and Nashville thumping the New Orleans Pelicans 10-7 and 4-2. Chattanooga's double feature at Little Rock was postponed. Vernon Curtis turned in a pitching masterpiece by limiting Doc Trothro's lowly Chicks to a pair of safeties after the Crackers had given him a 1-0 lead in the first frame. In the second contest, the Crackers spotted the cellar-dwellers two runs in the fourth inning and. Memphis, in an apparently generous mood, committed four costly errors in the fifth stanza to give Atlanta the edge. And the Crackers stayed out in front. The twin wins enabled Al Lcitz's boys to escape from sixth place in the standings and perched Here Is Bomber That War Bonds of Arkansas Legionnaires Paid for Interned Japs Better Fed Than Civilians Uay that the B5.0CK).odd Japanese be <g held in ton relocation cento s in this country probably . m. among Hie best fed civilians in the y »«c to the- »>v< ; f K;'; slarl ^ » < Greetings, Her Schicklegrubcr!
