(IP) —Sam Snead, winner of the I04L' Professional CiOlfer's Association title, has received a medical discharge from the navy. After being stationed here for al- must two years Snead departed yesterday for his AVhite Sulphur Springs, A'a.. home, lie will tnUe a rest in Virginia and then leave on an exhibition tour to play in Red Cross and convalescent hospital fund exhibitions. Snead said that bis return to competitive golf depended on how a back injury responded to treatment. After Snead won the 1942 P. O. A. title he joined the navy as an athletic specialist under Commander C5ene Tunney's program. He was unable to defend his crown this year when the tournament was resumed after being discarded in 1943.

Open gaps In the league schedule left only a New York-Philadelphia night game, AVednesday. hanging before the week-end business starts on Friday but the race can not be decided before the final intersectional series starting next week. ('arils Near Flag The National League, completely overshadowed recently by the tightness of the American circuit pennant race, took advantage of an off- day in tho Junior loop today to regain the stage as the St. Louis Cardinals open a series with the Pittsburgh Pirates, whluh may clinch the pennant for the Red Birds. The Cards, with 9."> victories already tucked away, have reached the point where they need only six wins to clinch their third straight pennant. Any combination of that figure, so far as the Pirates are concerned, also would nail the bunting to the pole in Sportsman's Park. Thus, if St. Louis should win three of its four game series with the Rues in scheduled night doubleheaders today and tomorrow, the senior circuit world series representative would be settled. lieds Gain (•round Monday was a complete blank in the American, but Cincinnati moved up to within three games and a half of idle Pittsburgh in their scrap for second place in the National by easing out a li-iJ, 10-innlng win over Chicago. Catcher Ray Mueller drove in four of the first Cincy runs and scored the winning tally in the tenth to give Reliefer Clyde Shonn the nod over Hank AVyse.

Gun Motor Carriages — designation 1 men who designed and bu erationwith $jStoty Ordnance—and to TankMestroyer Command forces who fight in them—they're Hellcats. The name fits. They are tank-killers with the pace of a panther and the, lethal strike of the king cobra. They're so fast they run rings around anything but their brothers, and they master obstacles that stop other vehicles cold. They can split an enemy tank at several miles — and thanks to springing born of Buick's work on your car, they can romp down roads at ^passenger car speeds. And now they're on the prowl. It has been twenty-odd months since we started work on these sluggers as f z&.Z to *'?* i »£ nf '>t n "**' answers to the vaunted Tiger tank. Twenty-odd months ,$f designing, building, testing, More than a year ago they went into production, and several months ago we knew they were on their way, in quantities, to undisclosed battlefields. They have shown what they can do there. They've added their force to the Great Effort—and because of them, American men have had benefit of a harder-hitting weapon against tanks, pillboxes, strong points and machine-gun nests. We're mighty glad that's so. Not just because this is a Buick baby. But because it's a good American weapon, built in our way, for use of our own kind. More power to it, say we—and to those gallant men in uniform for whom we sweated it out!
