Graziano Picked To Score Again Slugger Taking On Red Cochrane At The Garden Tonight. NEW YORK, Aug. 24 (£>)—One of boxing's most pleasing bouts of the summer season is on tap at Madison ' Square Garden tonight with •welterweight champion Freddie "Red" Cochrane and Rocky Graziano tangling in a return non-title 10-rounder. Lured by the prospect of again watching the Brooklyn slugger knock out the Elizabeth, N. J., champ, a crowd of 17,000 is expected to pay close to $100,000, one of the biggest gates of the year. Oddly, the Jersey redhead who likely will be outweighed by 10 pounds, may be the sentimental favorite of the crowd. His gallant showing on June 29 demonstrated lie was "no bum." His followers Increased when he offered no alibi. "I just got nailed, that's all," he said, referring to his 10th round knockout after being floored in the ninth. Cochrane was leading Rocky on points up to the sixth round of their first meeting when his legs tired. Rocky cornered Red several. times during the round and beatj him severely. It was a.tribute to the champ that he managed to last three more rounds. This time Cochrane says his legs are in shape to go 10 rounds at top speed. If this proves to be the case, he may gain, an upset decision. Bat, just as in their first bout, the time may com© when Red will see a punch coming-and won't be able to get out of the way. In that case he probably will come to in the dressing room. Field Meet Held At Wheaton Park A field meet highlighted the playground activities at Wheaton Park with four events being staged followed by a peanut scramble. In the softball finals the Bears defeated the Tigers 11 to 4 with Tayor, Slaughter, Lockley, Barnes, Manuel, Burnett, Lockley, Wedlock and Jones making up the winning team.

Boxing proved a highlight of the events with Taylor and Jackson ending in a draw; Henry Taylor defeated James Johnson; Lacey Lockley defeated William Campbell; Joseph White defeated Maurice Evans; Howell Cook won over Anthony Bell; Richard Taylor downed Roy Russ; Hilton Manuel won from Edward Smith and Allen Russ won from Vernon Barnes. Competition was keen in paddle tennis with Clarence Burnett and Gilbert Ware emerging victors. R. & G. DEPT.

The race stacks up as one of the nation's foremost tests for three-year-olds. When there was a ban on shpi- ping, it looked like Pot O' Luck might have an easy time of it, but with the entry of William Hells' Adonis, victorious in the Travers Stake in New York, and George D. Widener's Sir Francis, second ' to Adonis in the event, the Arlington Classic winner will have lots of competition. The derby field will have five other top-notchers ready to battle it out with.

By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer Bobby Feller returns to the baseball wars tonigbt after a four-year hitch in Uncle Sara's Navy and the odds are all in favor of his picking up where he left off in 1941. Rapid Robert may not be as razor sharp against the league-leading Detroit Tigers under the Cleveland arcs as he was when he won 25 for the Tribe in his last full season, but he has been managing and throwing for a top flight Great Lakes Navy team this season. Al Benton, Red Ruffing, Hank Greenberg, Buddy Lewis, Dave Ferriss' and Charley Keller are proving every day that a returning serviceman ball player needs little more than a shave and a haircut to step right back into his big league berth. Ferriss is the outstanding example of a successful ex-GI with his brilliant 19-6 win record for the Boston Red Sox although he was just a minor league performer before Pearl Harbor. Ruffing has copped four of five for the Yankees and Benton's 11-4 performance is a big reason for the Tigers' success. Lewis is hitting .342 for a Washington club that has become a definite flag threat since his return from the Army Air Force. Greenberg, after a faltering start, has leveled off at .324, with 15 doubles and 7 homers to top the Detroit hitters. Lesser lights such as Harry Lowrey, Paul Gillespie and Mickey Livingston of the Chicago Cubs, and rookies Red Schoendienst of the Cardinals and Ken Gables of Pittsburgh haven't found the going too rough. Jim Tobin assured Feller of a first place target to shoot at when he hurled the Bengals to a 4-3 verdict over Philadelphia yesterday, upping their margin over idle Washington to one full game. Although the A's banged Tobe's "nothin' ball" for eight hits including two doubles, 10 blows off Don Black enabled Detroit to close a 21-game home stand with its 14th decision over the eastern invaders Washington opens a vital four- game set in the Yankee Stadium today while the Tigers joust with the Indian?. All other clubs in the American League were idle vest*r day. Brooklyn staved off New York's threat to the Dodgers' third place berth on a four-hit, 4-1 night game triumph by rookie Ralph Branca. Despite threatening weather, the final after dark contest at the Polo Grounds drew 34,415 paid, boosting the season total to well over UGO.OOO. Sal Maglie, who had won his first two starts since coming up from the Jersey City farm, was banged out early as the Brooks stretched their third place margin over the Giants to a game and a half. Pittsburgh handed Cincinnati its sixth straight setback and its 19th in the last 21 sfarts. All other National League teams were unscheduled.

To the loyal Giant rooters who had been watching Phil Weintraub operate around first base this season, Lue showing of Mike Schemer, the Jersey City farmhand who replaced him, has been a delightful revelation. Schemer knows his way around first base. He fields well, and makes plays with an air of confidence that brings remarks from fans like: "Well, look at that —Mel Ott has a pro playing first base for the Giants." Ott was none too certain that Schemer could fill the bill for the Giants when he brought him up. Just for insurance, he made a deal for Roy Zimmerman and sent Weintraub to Newark to fill in until the Bears could find someone to cover first. Zimmerman failed to report to the Giants because he insists on a bonus from the Newark club before reporting. Schemer's showing makes one believe that Zimmerman couldn't get the first base job even if he tried. Schemer isn't an impressive batter. He looks husky enough to powder the ball but he doesn't get much distance. He hit .322 for the Jersey City Giants in 100 games before he was called up to the majors and piled up a fat average in the early games as a Giant. If he keeps on punching out timely singles, Ott will be happy to overlook the fact that Mike isn't hitting many homers.

This coupled with several errors by his teammates allowed the Harry- town team .to score nine runs. Shetron and Snider for Winter Street and A. Davis for Harrytown each collected two hits.

Franklin St. Phone 2066 Chapman Signed As Pilot Again Phillies Sign Up Manager For Another Season. PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 24 (£>)— Ben Chapman's success bandwagon keeps right on a-rolling. Chapman, who asks only that his ball players "'put out" their all, was signed yesterday to pilot the Phillies in 1946. Salary terms were not disclosed. Chapman was named in a surprise move June 30 after Fred Fitzsimmons resigned. Since then his Phillies have played what if perhaps their finest baseball in many years. Under Chapman's management, the Phils have won IS games and lost 30 to hike their percentage 52 points and are currently sporting a five game winning streak, their longest of thej season. General Manager Herb Pennock said Chapman is "signing for only a year. But that doesn't mean he won't be manager for years and years to come."

Prunczik's home run came two aboard in the fourth, and riweather hit for the circuit the bases empty in the sixth. LANCASTER AB. R. H. KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 24 (IP). The man who has dominated play during the past two years recognized today a new trend ia big time golf. It's no longer a one-man show. Byron Nelson fired a five-under- par 67 to take the first round lead yesterday in, the .513,333 Knoxville Open. Yet when he reached the Scoreboard he found two old professional rivals and a young amateur breathing hot on his neck. Just a stroke behind with 68's were Lt. Ben Hogan, of Hershey, Pa., who is making a comeback after army service; little Toney Penna, of Dayton, Ohio, and the new amateur threat, Freddie Haas, Jr., of New Orleans. "It was one of the best rounds of golf I ever had," commented Nelson. "But I only have a one stroke lead. This thing_ is getting tougher." The Toledo mashle master finished spectacularly. Coming to the long:, par-five 18th green, needing a birdie to take the lead, Nelson poked his second wood into a deep rough on the left. Then, thrilling the gallery, he laid an iron dead to the pin and putted out easily for the birdie four that put him out front Fox, 2b Gilmore. If .. Polito, 3b ... Jame.s cf ...
