The Bengals hope to get their first laste of victor- of Ihe season tonight in St. Louis against the Browns who have nudged Into the league lead.

Many of the players have been with the learn under bolh regimes. Rolfe has long been recognized as one of Ihe most intelligent and affable men in baseball. He is disciple of Joe McCarthy undei whom he played and later coached with the New York Yankees. Like McCarthy, Rolfe has a certain aloofness. He believes that his station engenders respect rather than familiarity where his play- a one-hit masterpiece last night as he pitched the rampaging Browns Into first place wilh a brilliant 1-0 triumph over the Indians' great Bob Feller. Cain had to pitch the best game of his life in order to win, for Feller was magnificent too, pitching a one-hitter himself. That lone Brownie safety, a triple, by leadoff batter Bobby Young, proved Bob's undoing. Marty Marion followed Young's first-inning triple with a grounder to Al Rosen. When the third baseman fumbled the ball, YOUIIB scored the only run of the game. The lone tally was ruled earned since the official scorer was of the opinion that Young would have crossed the plate fumble or no.

They finished in lasi place in 1951 with only 52 victories and 102 losses. The only hit permitted by Cain was a harmless single.
