Baltimore Had Money and Park LOS ANGELES W) — Baltimore came up with money and a ball park and Los Angeles was firstest with the leastest. Such was the explanation by co- owner Del Webb of the New York Yankees in telling about Baltimore's success in getting the St. Louis Browns' franchise and Los Angeles losing it. Webb, who volunteered to front for the Los Angeles movement to get major league baseball at the recent hectic meetings in New York, said Baltimore came far better prepared than any other city. Webb estimated that in the future any city must be prepared to put 10 million dollars on the line if they want to talk about a major league club. Willie Shoemaker Ties World Record ALBANY, Calif. Wl — Wee Willie Shoemaker, mighty mite of American thoroughbred racing, was ready today to begin rolling up the greatest riding record the world ever has known. The 96-pound Texan, tied the world record Thursday in the seventh race at Golden Gate Fields. He brought Haltafire home in front to make it his 390th win of the year, tieing the record set last year by Tony Despirito of Lawrence, Mass., who then was 17, Shoemaker, 22, is more than a 100 winners ahead of Despirito this year.

The public was expected to make ihim the favorite in most of them. named Johnny Olszewski back in 1949—the same Johnny who was destined to gain national fame at the rival University of California. He says this was the biggest prose­ lyting deal in which he was involved. One of his own USC alumnus, Cravath understood, offered Olszewski a new car, $150 a month during his four-year college career, expenses through law school, and a junior partnership in his firm after graduation. That seems reasonable enough, but Cravath claims the offer fell short. "Johnny became an All-America fullback at California—one of the finest in the history of the West," he moans.

The Philadelphian was given a thorough trouncing by the more experienced Gil Turner, a fellow townsman, in his first major bout Thursday night. Turner, 152V£, pounded his heavier (155) opponent into helplessness at 2:41 of the fifth round before 3,066 fans. Bernardo hadn't laid a glove on the fast-punching Negro welterweight.

Joe McCarthy Is Slightly Injured By ORLO ROBERTSON BROOKLYN (M— If Charlie Dressen manages the Brooklyn Dodgers next year he'll have to swallow his pride and accept a one-year contract. That seemed certain today as the little man who guided the Dodgers to two straight National League pennants stood steadfast on his demand for at least a two- year contract and President Walter O'Malley declined to budge an inch.

There was little doubt about any position. It was a lusty hitting club from top to bottom. It contains Furillo, the batting champion with a .344 mark, and all but one of the batsmen is a .300 plus hitter. Schoendienst batted .342, Musial .337, Snider .336, Kluszewski .316, Campanula .316, and Mathews .302. Reese batted a solid .271. It was the greatest home run hitting aggregation ever assembled in the National League. Mathews was king with 47 but not far behind were Snider with 42, Campanula with 41, and Kluszewski with 40. In run production it was a lineup to terrorize any pitcher. Campanella set the pace with 142 runs batted in, but four of the others— Mathews with 135, Snider with 126, Musial with 112, and Kluszewski with 108 — all topped the century mark.

From O'Malley came these words: "I have every reason to believe that Charlie's decision is final and irrevocable. It is inconceivable to me that Charlie would humiliate himself and ask for a one-year contract at this point." Earlier yesterday, Dressen said he planned to see O'Malley on another matter today and assumed the managerial discussion would come up again. But O'Malley said he had no appointment with Charlie, hastening to add: "However, Charlie is a friend. He is welcome to see me at any time." Dressen and his wife originally demanded a three-year contract at $50,000 a season for Charlie. Pee Wee Reese, the club's 34- year old shortstop, was the man most often mentioned as Dressen's successor. There have been reports that Dressen might shift to Baltimore as either general manager or field manager of the Orioles. But Charlie took a dim view on the possibility.
