Sports Roundup kj Uugb t'ullerlon Jr. NEW YORK, July 14. </!>)— H Isn't, surprising to hear Bill Mc- Kechnle come out with optimistic words about the Cleveland Indians, especially since they've climbed to second place. . . . Bill never was one to km ' a club he worked for. . . . "We're hitting better now and we're really coming along." McKcchntc says, and he really seems to mean !t. , . . "Lou Boudreau is really hitting now and Doby has brought Ills average up a lot. Lou Is playing a lot since Ken Keltner was hurt, and Ray Boono is Boine to be a good shortstop. He's over his nervousness now. . . It was our pitching that was carrying us for a while, but we're hlttliifr now.". . . . After thai explanation.

Johnson to Turn Pro; Will Sign With NY Yankees DALLAS, Texas, July 14. (/rj— Gilbert Johnson, Southern Methodist University's spectacular forward passing star, Is going to turn professional "as soon as possible."

Johnson said he "expected" he would sign with the New York Yankees of the All-America Conference Philadelphia holds draft rights to the Mustang aerial wizard in the National Professional Football League. "If there is a Yankee agent around here with a contract form I'll sign it," Johnson said. "If not I may fly to New York this weekend, sign a contract and stick around for opening ol training camp." Last Word After the all-star baseball game in Brooklyn Tuesday, someone asked Charley SD—I-. national [ensue publlcitor: "Is this game supposed to be played for or by old-time tail players". . . . Maybe the answer should have been that It was a benefit for the fresh error fund. . . . Anyway, the National Leaguers wanted to win in the worst way: instead they lost in the worst way. One-.Mimilc Sports I'aje Top price for the Ezzard Chnrles- Ous Lestievich fight in New York wlll be S1G.50. In Philly Robinson and Gaviliin fought for a 512.50 top. . . . Maybe they're charging bv the pound. . Looks like the Red Sox figure they may need help in a hurry later in the season Th»y snified pitcher Windy McCall to Louisville and persuaded Seattle to deliver Sammy White, the $75.000 rookie catcher, ahead of schedule so he could go to the same club. Chick Evans won the Western Open golf championship in 1910 and hasn't missed one since, though ne never repeated. . . . Chick says t .vns a tougher tournament than the U.S. Open or amateur in those days. . . The Cincinnati Reds' publicity dept. has dug up the fact that almost the entire 1883 team barely escaped death or serious injury in an elevator accident. All but one playei was on the elevator that crashed. . . . Maybe that was n precedent for the Reds' annual plunge to the cellar.
