It was thus a successful climax to a "How-I'd- n-A-Ball Club" contest arranged by Veeck that had set off some rather sharp critical comment from some eball quarters. -+ Though some critic* have described Veeck as making a farce of Rotblatt Returns and Chicks Shade Mobile's Bears 5-4 ,Br THE ASSOCIATED PKESS Lefty Mary Rotblatt, thought to be on his way to tlie armed service*, returned unexpectedly last night and hurled the Memphis Chicks Into » tl« with Mobile lor third place in the Southern Association. The tiny southpaw left the club* five days Ago to be inducted at Chicago. He got a postponement from Selective Service officials, reached Memphis at 6 o'clock yesterday and was baffling the Bears two hours later. Five Mobile errors helped Rotblatt post his third straight victory. He retired the first 13 Bruins, allowed no hit* until tht fifth inning and survived & three-run rally in the eighth to win, 5-4.

Youth, 18, Wins [rapshoot Title Kansas Youngster Breaks 99 of 100 to Cop National Crown By FRITZ HOWELI. VANDALIA, O., Aug. 25.,(/Pi—The 52nd Grand American Trapshoot ends today but anything that hap- jens In the two wind-up events will be anti-climatic. The big fireworks in the 1,500,000- arget classic came yesterday when 18-year-old E. Michael Wayland oE Washington, Kas.. broke 99 of 100 targets to win the blue-ribbon classic of the trapshooting—the Granc American Handicap The youngster, who fired in the first squad, overshot a fleld of 1.695 -fourth largest in the event's history, to pick up between $8.000 and $12.000 In prize money. The five-foot eight-inch, 155- pounder, second youngest ever to win the "Roaring Grand," flred in the same squad with his father, who scored a not too impressive 84. Young Mike, a "B" student, will enter Kansas University next month to take a civil engineering course, and he will use his prize money to pay the bill. Five shooters tied at 98 of 100 for second place, but the $1.000 runner-up prize went to William A Klepner of Caruthers, Calif., In > shootofT. One of today's events was the national doubles championship In which two targets are thrown simultaneously from the trap.

U also was his third oft Wynn, each blow coming exactly one month apart. The little outfielder started his one man crusade June 23 when he homered off Bob Lemon with one in a 1-6 Yankee victory. On June 24th he beat Wynn, 5-3, with a two-run homer in the eighth. July 12th he homered off Bob Feller to account for the only run in Allie Reynolds' no-hitter. Woodling ruined Wynn again July 24 when he cracked & two-run homer in a 3-2 Yankee victory. 13th of Season Woodling's homer off Wynn last night was" his 13th of (he season. He also collected a single and two walks to give hm a total of 15 hits in his last 20 times at bat, a blazing .750 average. The payoff homer, struck before 11,768 fans, largest night game crowd of the season, overshadowed some brilliant pitching by stubby Overmire and Joe Ostrowskl, obscure lefthanders of the Yanks.

I participated in all the decisions." But perhaps her final remark most pleased Veeck: / "A Cardinal an" I was a Cardinal fan until Veeck came to town," she admitted. F. J. Ott. 54. had the same idea. "I think it's a good idea to bring the crowd out and let them have some' fun:-'I've -always wanted to call the plays and tonight i had the chance." An Annapolis student, home for -summer leave, also joined in. He was Z. John Kowalskey, Jr. "It's a good deal," he said, "and something that was needed to attract the crowd. We had a lot of fun. Real good game too." To make it a good game for the Browns, the managers made three quick decisions in the first inning. The strategy paved the way to the triumph. First they voted to leave pitcher Ned Garver In the game after the Athletics greeted him with three quick runs, Then the fans moved the Brown Infield back to work a double play that ended the Inning. In the home half of the frame the managers voted "no" to answer i query whether base runner Sherm Ixjllar. a slow man, should steal second. A 3-2 count faced Cliff Mapes at the plate at the time. Raised Cards Mapes fanned and Lollar probably would have been an easy out. Instead he later scored one of three St. Louis runs that tied the contest. The farn made their decisions by raising "yes" or "no" signs in answer to queries offered by two coaches. The coaches won their positions by writing the most Interesting letters In 'the contest. They were Charles E. Hughes, 24, and Clark Mitze, 38, both of St. Louis. Neither has ever played baseball. They were to have performed on the field but were denied that experience when the American League refused to approve their contacts. Instead they held • box se»t vantage point next to the Brown little southpaw, entrusted with only three of a pain in his pitching arm. Os- trowskl took over with runners on first and third and one out and got out of the jam. Ostwowski singled to start the seventh Inning. He moved up on a sacrifice and jogged home ahead of Woodling's smash over the right field fence. Ostrowskl received cred-- it for the victory, his sixth, against three losses. Other American League games saw th« Chicago White Sox edge the Boston Red Sox, 3-S, the St. Louis Browns defeat the Philadelphia Athletics, 5-3 and the Washington Senators clubbed the Detroit Tigers, 10-7.
