Y., June 13. ft— Five plaques were to be put in ilace today at the National lall Hall of Fame commemorating wo heroes of olden days and three modern greats. Honored were Mordecai Peter Brown and Charles A. (Kid) pitchers from baseball's misty past, and Herbert J. Pennock, ;harles L. Gehrlnger and Harold J. Pie) Traynor of more recent times. Nichols and Brown were selected >y the Old Timers' Committee Pennock and Traynor were voted in last year, by the baseball writers. Brown, who died in 1948, was best knoxvn as "three finger." He •on 239 and lost 130 gamps in the National and Federal Leagues. Kid Nichols, born in 18S9, pitched th» National League for Boston. St. Louis, and Philadelphia, winning 360 games and losing 202. He was vited here for the ceremonies. The late Herb Pennock heads the list of the moderns. He died in 1948 while attending a baseball meeting in his capacity as' General Manager ot the Phillies. Gehringer was mechanical perfection at second base for Detroit, playing his whole career from 1924 to 1942 with the single American League team. Traynor was Pittsburgh's great third baseman from 1920 to 1937.- CHICAGO, June 13 tifs— If Sam | dnead's putter could talk he would be lu for a bawling out. He played dirty trick on it. The niEiRic wann. thiu brought him the Master's and PGA golf crowns this season cost him a chance for the National Open title Saturday. Boyish Cary Middlecoff. a pro less than three years, won with a two over par 286. Clayton Heafner and Snead shared second with 287. Jim Turn- esa and Bobby Locke split fourth plBce with 289's. It could have been all Sncad's But he asked loo much of his putter. Needing to par the lust three holes to tie Middlecoff. and only birdie on one of them to win. Snead chose to use his putter two feet off the edge of the 192-yard 17£h green in a gamble for a birdir. Instead of chipping, which would have .seemed logical, he went for the hole 25 feet away on the roll through the light fringe and onto the green. The "prtt" went sevtyi feet past the cup. He couldn't get back and took a four. That was his undoing Then Snead had to scramble for standard 4 on the 18th.

June 13, OPJ — Theoretically, a man who manages a major league baseball club should be able to teach his athletes to play ball . . . But when It comes to hlUinr, it can't be done, says the Cardinals' Eddie 1 Dyer . "People often ask me 'why don't you teach soandso to hit?" Eddie explained the other day. "But 1 can show * fellow how to swing exactly Like Stan Musial, liuw to keep his shoulders level and not to overstHde and all the rest and still he can't hit. It's a matter ol co-ordination of mind nnct muscle.' . . . Another of Dyer's theorlpR is that a major leaguer should hit for extra bases on 30 percent of his blows. And for one example he picked Marv Rtckley, the "sore- arm" returnee to (he Dodgers. "Tt doesn't matter much whether has a good arm or not," Eddie expounded. ''The point Is Ihnt he can hit .300 but never could boromc i regular, You can stand n man whi can't throw a lick If he can, hi enough into the stands for you," Monday Mulhiee If the Marcel Cerdan-Jakc La mot la fight this week and th E/./ard Charles-Jersey Joe Wnlcol affair next week draw us big crowd predicted, this ciept. will h convinced that fight funs are Ilk some drinkers, who mnin there's no bad whiskey—just some that's better (or worscl than tho rest . . .
