Rogers Hornshy committed this sage comment before the season opened. His precocious St. Louis Browns act like he meant it. Running neck and neck with Cleveland for the American League lead, they sound like the. big noise of early season. If Ihe Browns keep winning when j the heal on Washington for a 9-2 they get home, owner Bill Vceck romp with freshman Faye Throne NATIONAL LKACiUK Brooklyn St. Louis Cincinnati C":ica£o New York Philadelphia Pittsburgh Boston 1 1 1 1 .C67 .500 .5'JO .500 .530 0 3 .000 ' SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION Mobile Little Rock Chattanooga New Orleans Memphis iiVmingham W L Pet OB 4 I .BOO 3 1 .750 4 2 .667 3 3 .500 1 3 3 .500 1 2 2 .500 2 1 4 .200 3 1 5 .107 3> 2 can forget any more free heer nights for the customers.

N'ewhouser Was Loser That new Brownie lineup, with only one third of the '51 personnel still on the rosier, ruined Hal Newhouser's bright comeback hopes. Prince Hal, making his first start since last July 14. spoiled an efficient job by throwing home run balls to Les Moss and Bob Nieman in the last two innings. Cleveland wasted many of its 17 hits in running over Chicago for a tiiird straight triumph, 3-1. Despite the heavy barrage that included a 425-foot, homer by Luke Enster in the fifth, the Tribe gave Mike Garcia only a one-run lead going to the ninth. Shaky fielding by Ray Boone, Negro Scouts To Play Baseball The Negro Boy Scouts of Blytheville will open their baseball season tomorrow. I. F. Young, scoutmaster of the Blytheville troop, will manage the team. All games will be open to the public, Bobby Avtla and Al Rosen helped the powerless White Sox make it close. Garcia, starting out after another 20T\vin season, threw a steady seven-hitter to beat Marv Grissom, knocked out in the three- run second. Avila snapped out of a hitless string with a perfect four- for-four. Bobby Sliant?., smallest pitcher in the league, beat the world champion New York Yankees with his left arm and bat to give Philadelphia a 3-1 decision over Eddie Lopat. The a-foot-6 pitcher scattered nine hits and gave his team the lead run with a looping single in the fourth, breaking n 1-1 tie. The Boston "rookie" Sox turned burgh. berry, a Scranton, Pa., grad, hit ing a base-loaded home run off Don Johnson in the six-run sixth Throne-berry, just advanced lo th< Sox roster before opening day smashed n two-strike, no-ball pitch into the Senator's bullpen in center field. Newcomers Sam White, Tort Lep cio and Bill Henry helped him drive in eight of the nine runs. Walt Dropo's homer provided the other.

St. Louis was dumped from tl>e unbeaten class by Pittsburgh's rookie-studded pirates, 5-3. Three Cardinal errors and Peanuts Lowrey's tumble that, ruined a promising rally helped lefty Joe Aluir register his first big league win. Ralph Kincr had three of ihe six Pirate hits. Kenny Raffensberger, who always finds Chicago an easy mark, shut out the Cubs with five hits for Cincinnati's 3-0 edge. Raffy's lifetime record against the Cubs now is 21-9.
