(UP)—An American official predicts that If the war cuds In lime for the renewal of the Olympic Games In 104B Ihc games will go to Sweden. Secretary Dan Ferris ol the National Amateur Athletic Union picks Stockholm as the most logical place for the next world sports carnival. And lliat would give the two swift Swedes, Guilder Hagg and Arne Andersson, a chance to win Olympic titles on their home grounds. Yanks Win Two, Gain On Browns New Yorkers Annex Double-Header From Detroit Yesterday By United Tress The New York Yankees were the big winners In the Amcrrlcan League yesterday. ,'Ilie Yankees swept, both games of tliclr doubleheader with Detroit, gaining a full giime on the pace-setting St. Louis Browns. Riuss Derry's plncli single broke a 3 to 3 deadlock 'In the opener and gave the Yanks a 4 to 3 victory. Alley Donald was the winning pitcher. Rookie Emerson Roser won the second game 8 to 2. The Cleveland Indians divided pair with the Boston Hcil Sox, taking the first, 8 U> 2, and dropping, the second, 4 to 2.

The Bues walloped the Dodgers 10 to 1 In the opener, shelling Ed Head and Rube Melton, for eight runs In the first three Innings. <fa Martin Up DOPE BUCKET BY I. P. FBIEND TO INK MOTHKR Many hidden talents, buried under .he hustle ai)d bustle of this busy life, have come to light during tills .crrible struggle. Some have been In song, the crayon, artists brush, verse, and countless other nvemies of expression. Preacher Roc doled out seven-hits for Pittsburgh. The Et Louis Cardinals whitewashed the Boston Braves twice. Big Mort Cooper did the 'first blanking Job. beating Jim Tobin 1 to 0 in a tight pitching duel. Harry Brccbcen scored a lop-sided 9 to 0 victory in tile nightcap. The Cincinnati Reds swept a double bill the Philadelphia irclimimiry by Belkas, Wisbar Is Ferris says Sweden is the logical quite dangerous nt all times when choice for the next Olympic Games nsldc the squared circle. He is Irons, powerful and unusimllyclcv- backcd by a bag crammed full f ring tricks and holds. Welch and Lawson, who have )een rivals for some time, arc ex- ;ccted to furnish n different kind of fireworks and action. Botli are ough and double tough nnd should Hit on a whnle of a battle. If the match were held some months back (lie fans couiri expect i clean affair. But of talc both hav c deviated from the scientific in favor of the him and bam, splash and splatter. They are hard punchers aiw know how to let their fists fly. The battle ma v develop Into a duel between Welch's famous body slam, nnd (he headlock, pet and favorite .hold of Lawson. Welch gels a big kick out of smashing his foes against tho floor, while Buck prefers to squeeze their noggins with ills iwwerful arms. Both weapons have proved unusually effective. Starting time is 8:30. because the Swedes have been neutrals all through the war. T li e y won't havc the reconstruction problems that other European nations will face, and they arc close lo the continental countries. The AAU official thinks that's an Important point. He says that most of the countries now at war will hnve a hard time finding money to send n team to I/is Angeles or Bne- nos Aires, two other spots that havc been suggested. But Ferris says they can all atlord to gel their stars as far as Stockholm, On the other hand, lie points out that many Americans will want to see Europe after the war, as they did after World War I. And Ferris says plenty of American tourists Phillies 9 lo 5, and 1 to 5. Arny Carter won the first game, and Ed leusscr took the second. The Chicago Cubs beat the New York Giants twice. Bob Chipman urned put a seven hit jbo In the to 2 lid-lifter. Dom Dallcsandro provided the punch with a pair of doubles and a pair of singles. Claude Passeau whitewashed the Giants 1 to 0 in the nightcap. There arc no today. The soys partially account for this out- :>msl In that perhaps for the first lime they have stopped loirj enough lo get in some real Uilnklng. . . . Chief In their thoughts Is home. . . The first In that home is mother, of course. One of the most beautiful bits of original verse dedicated to the greatest person on earth—MOTHER —was created by Staff Sergeant Horace C. Walters, a former Bly- thevllle Chick, on the special day set aside for Mother and designated us Mother's Day. . . Stationed in far away New Guinea, where lie lias been for more than two years and now awaits passage back to the States, Horace created the following on May 1, 1944 and mailed It to ills mother, Mrs, J. w. Walters, Route 3, Blythcvlllc: OUIt MOTHER When we were just tiny guys, Laughing, screaming, voices high, When cadi play filled day was ended, n your arms, a contented sigh. '/hen each busy day was over, You so tired, needing rest, 'irsl, you held us to your bosom, Vc fell asleep, by you were bles't. When we had Koine minor illness, No matter just hnw slight, You were always there beside us. Brought as comfort through the night. When lo yon, all dusty, tear slaincd, With some scratch, or cut, or bruise You Ixmnd our scratches, kissed 'is lightly, Of all nurses, we'd choose. When shopping we went willi Were captivated by some new toys Twas seldom e'er you refused us, You knew the lieu its of little boys games scheduled would probably go over lo wale!' our boys perform in the Olympics and visit Europe at the same time How alxiut the Axis nations? Well Ferris points out that after the las war Germany didn't get back into the Olympics until 1028. And he says that, although the host nalioi can Invite any country it wants to Ihe Swedes might not ask the Alliec alhlclcs to compete against Ger mans. ,Vhy, we had the l»st council ever, When we came to Dad and you. When we'd go out In the evening, Silcnlly returning late at night, I'o your bed, we'd kiss you lightly Ne'er you slept, even though no light Some would say we've grown up, Mo tlicr, Warring weapons, 'instead of toys, But always, to us It will be, You our Mother, we, just your boys. Soon three years since I've seen you, Unpleasant though, slow iiass time, Always, e'er we're looking forward, Our being together, will be sublime. Big brother's righting "Ratnlcs" in Italy, I've twcnty-eiiiht months 'gainst Even now we ait are sweating, Little brother crossing foreign seas When all of this is over, We've put the Axis in their place. We'll foe happiest, when at your table, In our places, hearing you say grace. Once again we are all parted, ~Yoni you, our Mother, on Mother's Day, Ve're Just trying with words to thank you, The LOVELIEST MOTHER In every way. Baseball Standings SOUTHERN LEAUTJK W. L.
