"" * Not Great Unless— The Boston Red Sox have been referred to as the greatest team in baseball this season—first in everything except the American league standings. . . . The Bosox have the 2 biggest winning pitchers in the majors in Mel Parnell and Ellis Kinder, the top hitter in the majors in Ted Williams, the most dangerous 1-2 punch in Williams and Vern Stephens, the top team in the majors in team hitting. . . . But the Boston club is just another team unless it should win the pennant. . . . And about the only way they're going to win the pennant is to take at least 4 of 5 of their remaining games with the Yankees, an unlikely situation. * Ted Williams and Vern Stephens of the Boston Red Sox are a cinch'to rate 1-2 in runs batted in duringr the 'major. league, season. •.'.', They may combine for about 325 RBIs for the season. . . . Here's how other great duos rate in the record books: Gehrig- Ruth (1931 Yanks) 347, Gehrig- Ruth (1927) 339, Gehrig-Ruth (1930) 327, Simmons-Foxx (1930 Athletics) 321, DiMaggio-Gchrig (1937 Yanks) 326. the minute the ball's snapped I try to rush into the opposing backfield." "Yes?" said the priest. "I grab an armful of players." "Yes?" "I throw them off one by one until I get to the fellow with the ball." "Yes?" "I keep him!" * The Cubs are battling neck and neck with the Reds for the National league cellar this season with little to choose. . . . Fans in the midwest like the Cubs and especially their very fine park. . . . With the season in the late stages it's worth reflecting on some deals made by the Cubs, one of the more active clubs in majors in trading the past season. The Chicago club traded Russ Meyer, Hank Borowy and Bill Nicholson to the Phils for Dutch Leonard, Monk Dubiel and Harry Walker. . . . Meyer and Borowy have combined for 26 wins for the Phils this season, Dubiel and Leonard have won 11 for the Cubs. . . . However, Nicholson has batted only .230 for the Phils while Harry Walker sports a .293 mark, not for the Cubs, but for Cincinnati where he was later traded. * Future Howkeyes Quite a number of the top prep athletes in Iowa last season have enrolled at the University of Iowa this fall. . . . Among the top cagers who hope to be future Hawks are Herb Thompson of Forest City, Gene Kettrick of Iowa City, Don 'Swartzendruber of W e 11 m a n , Whitey Diehl of Iowa City, Bob Mau of Charles City and Alan Butterfield of McGregor. The football list includes Swartzendruber, Hettrick, D e 1 Corbin of Council Bluffs, Bernard Bennett and Ray Holder of Mason City, Corky Reister of Sioux City, Roger Luedke of Hartley, Jim Howard of Burlington, Don Shum of Shennandoah, Jack McKinnes of Davenport and Jim Pilkington of Red Oak, all fine performers in high school. In track, Iowa landed the national record holder in the discus, Clye Gardner of Newton, and fine sprinters in Gary Scott of North Des Moines, Ralph Richman of Dubuque and Jim Harvey of Britt. . . . Wrestlers who might do some good include Ray Steiger of Cresco, Phil Dugan of Davenport and Jim Burright of West PALACE—"Slifhtly French" and "Trou ble 1'referrcd" now showing.

Amateur singles title this and last year, hardly had hopped off a plane from his home town Tuesday before he signed a one year contract to play Jack Kramer in close to 100 matches around the country, beginning the night of Oct. 25 at Madison Square Garden here. Bobby Riggs, promoter of «the tour and also twice National Amateur king, signed Pancho to a contract which guarantees Gonzales $60,000 within the next year, or an option of 30 per cent of the gate receipts. It is expected that it won't be long before another double winner of the amateur title, Veteran Frankie Parker, will join the pro troupe. hough the team has been elimi- lated from the American league jennant race.

New York, (fP) — Two of t h e losing-est clubs in pro football, the Chicago Hornets and New York Bulldogs, seem to be coming up with new deals as well as new names this season. . . . The Hornets, formerly Rockets, have won 3 of 4 games so far, one more than their total victories for the past 2 seasons. . . . The Bulldogs, formerly the Boston Yanks, have lost 5 exhibition games to western National league clubs by a total of 36 points and feel they'll do somewhat better in league play in the east. ... In fact, Coach Charley Ewart thinks 2 of his tackles, Carl Vogelaar and John Nolan, are all-league possibilities and that's a good start for any team. The Seat of Trouble Starting the 1948 football season, Coach Blair Cherry decked out h;.s U. of Texas football players in flashy white nylon pants. . : . North Carolina promptly beat the same off of them. . . When it happened again in the Oklahoma game, the Longhorns discarded the new garb and finished out -a successful season. . . The Texans thought they had ended the jinx when they got away with wearing white instead of orange in the Orange Bowl, so they brought out the nylons again to start the 1949 season against Texas Tech. ... So in the 2nd quarter Bobby Dillon headed for the goal, Bobby Close, Tech back, made a grab for him and ripped the seat right out of Dillon's fancy pants. Dillon insists he wasn't brought down—it was just an embarrassed pause—but the Longhorns figure on going back to their old orange britches when they play Temple Saturday. ' Sports Before Your Eyes Word from Chicago is that Luke Appling, the fans' choice, can have the job of managing the White Sox any time he wants it— but he dosen't want it. ... Score one for television: George Mun- gcr, Penn football coach, plans to wear a regular suit on the bench this fall instead of the players uniform he has affected for years. . . . Horroble thought dcpt.— North Carolina has a sophomore wingback named Bob "Goo Goo" Gantt, who has been doing some fancy running.
