The Yankees became the 11th big league dub to acquire a Negro player Tuesday when they' announced the purchase of Vic Power and Elstori Howard from their Kansas City farm club of the American Assn. The pair, together with six other hopefuls from Kansas City and Birmingham, will] Tony De Spirito Unconcerned Over Riding Record r Ltbtonthe parent club at the spring training camp in St. Petersburg, Fla., next February. A great deal of attention will be placed on the pair, especially Power, who was regarded in some quarters as ready for the big leagues as far back as 1952. Power, 23, is a strong right-handed hitter who led the American Assn. in batting this season. Besides hitting .349, the infielder-outfielder paced the circuit with 217 hits and 324 total bases. Howard, 22, although not as robust a batter as Power, is regarded by several Yankee scouts as By BUD WEEKS N. H, m Jockey SALEM, Tony De Spirito's national record of 390 winners may well be broken today but the teen-age riding sensation shows little concern. And you really can't blame him. Many a sports champion sets a record which stands for decades only to be broken by some young upstart in the twilight of the veteran's career. It's an occasion for sentimental recollection. But should Wee Willie Shoemaker run his season's winning total to 391 with two victories today at Golden Gate Fields in Albany, Calif., no such sentiment need be forthcoming. De Spirito's Ben Success to God PHILADELPHIA (UP) — Hogan said today that 1953, when he won five tournaments, was his greatest year in golf but that he could not have accomplished it "without the help of the Lord.*' "I play to win/ 1 Hogan said in a magazine article, "and 1 think the Lord has let me win for a purpose." The little linksman, who made a tremendous golfing comeback after a brush with death in an automobile crash in 1949, said he hoped the purpose is "to give courage to those people who are sick or injured, and broken in body.*' The five competitions notched by Hogan this year included the Mas- Fight Results By the Associated Press Miami Beaeh, Fla. — Chico Ve- Jar, 146, Stanford, Conn., out­ pointed Chico Pacheco, 154V4, Miami, 10.

Power's outstanding work in the minors put the Yankees very much on the spot early last spring. They never had a Negro player on their roster and rumors spread that they never intended to have one. Despite the pressure to bring up Power, Yankee General Manager George Weiss stoutly maintained the young Negro was not ready. Power and Howard boost the Negro delegation in the majors to 31. The Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia Athletics, Cincinnati Rcdlegs and Pittsburgh Pirates also have joined the Dodgers, Giants, Braves, Indians, White Sox and Browns in signing Negroes to their rosters. Only the Red Sox, Tigers, Senators, Phillies and Cardinals are without Negroes although the Tig- Senators and Cardinals have described as "the best I've ever shot in the course of one tournament.'* The others were the Pan- American, the Colonial National, the U.S. Open (his fourth) and the British Open. Hogan took the British Open with a 282 which was eight strokes better than the previous mark for 72 holes at the Carnoustie course in Scotland. He tied for third in the Greenbrier tournament. Hogan, reminiscing in an article in the Saturday Evening Post, said the determination to win "because over a period of years people have said I couldn't do this or that," has been one of his driving forces all his life. land, Ore., Bangkok — Chamrern Songki- trat, 118, Thailand, knocked out Jimmy Pearce, 118, Britain, 1. • j -. _ — Cubs Purchase Burdette Thurlby - year „ Phillies knuckleballer led all big Smalls, 156',*, Oakland, Calif.

The gun went off and some of the shot entered Miranda's upper lip. Ignoring the injury, Miranda played baseball both Sunday and Monday.
