COURIER tasen Sparks Cleveland Over Nats 6-2; Mizell Finally Wins SCRAMBLED LEGS—Light-Heavyweights Bob Foster and Ted \-akeling became so tangled up they tumbled through the ropes during an amateur boxing tournament at London. But that didn't stop. them. They went right on fighting on the way down. (NZA) Hill Gail Is 6-5 Choice In 78th Derby Running Dy OULO ROBERTSON LOUISVILLE, Ky. W,—Seventeen 3-year-old colts, as finely tuned as a concert violin, challenged one another In the 78th running of the $125.350 Kentucky Derby today. It'll take hardly more than two lions of the nation and all walks minutes for them to cover Church- Ill Dawns' sun-baked derby route of a mile and one quarter. But in that brief period will he packed all the hopes and disappointments of three years of careful training for these thoroughbreds in America's No. 1 horse mcc. Some already have acquired a degree of greatness through two- year-old and early season triumphs. Others have yet to visit the winner's circle this year. But they all are survivors of an original field of 161 once nominated for this turf classic. A crowd estimated at 100,000 again was expected to pack the vast stands and the flower-decorated infield that Is Churchill Downs. Millions of others also will sec the race: The run for the roses is being televised nationally for the first time. It will be carried over 49 stations by CBS-TV and broadcast on work. radio by the same 'net- Both the telecast and broadcast • re scheduled for 4:15 p. m. 4:45 p. m., EST. Post time 4:30 p. rn. to They'll see the n horses break thunder the five- a mile past the from the barrie sixteenths of stands, striving for a favorable position at the first turn. Then into the back stretch, where stamina begins to tell. And finally around the final turn into that heart-breaking quarter-mile of the home stretch. The weather man co-operated in making the gala occasion a success, changing his earlier prediction of showers to fair and cooler. That cooler part is good news to the fans, assembled from nil sec of life. It has been mighty ho here the past few days. Hill Qail remained, the outstand ins favorite. In fact, the chance of the devil-red silks of Mrs. War ren Wright's Calumet Farm win ning the derby a fifth time wer enhanced yesterday when traine Ben Jones entered Top Blend as running mate for the big son Bull Lea. Race experts saw in Jones' sur prise action a desire to have horse, other than his own Hill Gal: set the early pace. Top blen showed a high turn of speed winning a six-furlong dash her earlier in the week. The Calumet combination wa held at 7 to 5 in the overnigh wagering, was placed at 6 to 5 b the track handlcapper early today and may parade postward as shor as 4 to 5. Eddie Arcaro, seekin his fifth derby triumph, will b astride Hill Gail and the comb nation of Jones and Arcaro nevt has lost a race. C. M. Cook wl ride Top Blend.

With a high school oy lobbing them up. he took his uls at Miami Beach's Flamingo 'ark. When Hank Greenberg, Tribe eneral manager, called him to Tucson, Ariz,, In mid-February for xtra batting instructions, he went running. Rosen had taken a pay ut from Qreenberg. He wanted to how him things would be different lis season. "I had a Icrrible year," said ^Josen. "But I know I can hit bet- er than that. I'm going to get that loncy back and more over with good year." Hosen hit » satisfactory .308 ace while the Indians jousted •ilh the other western clubs. Once hey hit the East early this week, caught on fire. Against Ihe Philadelphia A's and Washington collected nine hits in 18 at bats or a .500 mark, boosting his aver- ge to .308. Tuesday night he hit three home uns at Philadelphia. Last night blasted his seventh homer of he year, with two on, to trample Vashington, 6-2. He Is lied with ioston's Walt Dropo for the Amer- can League lead with 15 runs atted In. Mitchell Homers Rosen and his mates backed up vtike Garcla's seven-hit pitching by 'lasting Julio Moreno and Tom Perrick for 15 hits, Dale Mitchell also hit a homer. Rosen's blow n Ihe seventh, followed a triple >y Harry Simpson and a walk to Bobby Aylla. Dropo set the home run pattern n the afternoon at Fenway Park, with a bases-loaded blast off Ned iarver in the Boston Red Sox's 3-6 riot against the St.Louis Browns. Garver coasted along with a 3-1 ead until the Sox cut loose with big nine in the sixth. A balk called by umpire Charlie Berry and an error by rookie Jim Hivef» on Don Lenhardt's long drive upset Garver. Dropo's smash knocked him out. "I got mad when the balk was called." said Garver. "I just started throwing. I realize If you get he other fellow mad he can't play. That's what I did. It's my fault.' While O a r v e r was -getting "mad," lefty Bill Henry clicked off his third straight win by holding the Browns to eight hits. The Browns also lost the services of Marty Marion when his old sacro- Uiac trouble kicked up in mid- game. He thinks he'll be able to return today. Eddie Lopal, a little off the beam in his previous starts, found the groove against Detroit to throw two-hitter for the Yanks' 4 victory. George Kcll was the only Tiger able to hit off Lopat with a single in the first and eighth.

It la easy to forget. He was out of the lineup only \e full season, sitting unhappily n the Card bench and trying to innage a Card team which was iver the hill, yet 1 * in that brief time nemory of his brilliance dimmed . little and Phil Rizzuto of the Yankees became the beau Ideal of h or tstops. But now Marlon is bsck, trans- orniing a collection of raw-rookies nd big league castoffs into a fight- ng ball club which is keeping thj urnstiles humming wherever it ap ears. We strongly recommend hat you --ee the Browru and their hortstop before.Marty runs out of ;as. Though the grinning veteran still itoutly maintains he will play 125 ames, it seems fair to*.say that le is an optimist. The major knee >peration he underwent during the winter makes that number gamble, no matter how good it eels now, and the back trouble which has plagued Marty for several seasons still forces him to sleep on a board, they say. Also, here will be those 90-degree days along in July and August. But as long »s the thin man maintains his present pace he will be worth watching and the Browns will not fold. He makes you resize how thoroughly silly U Is to pick any club to win a pennani unless it possesses a really fine shortstop. He makes us recall what Marse Joe McCarthy said one spring night in Panama: "After July 4 your shortstop is your ball club." Marty might be a half-step slow r than he was in his greatesi days when the Cardinals were champions, yet he is so long from where he begins to the other enc that It makes little difference. He might still reach any ball that Lou Boudreau ever did, which Is the best illustration we can offer. Hitting in (he important No. 2 spot In the Brownie lineup, he is the heart of an attack which does not promise to be too robust Though never a great hitter, Mar Ion always was respected, and h> has grown to be one of the smart est batters in the game. Three times ne came up agains the Yankees the other day with a runner on first, and three times Manager Hornsby called for the hit-and-run. On the first, Martj pulled a single down the left line On each of the next two he p lazy doubles behind the runner int the right field corner as the crowc roared its appreciation of his ar tistry.
