Feller Testifies Club Owners Regard Players as Merely Pawns WASHINGTON III -- Bob Feller the former Cleveland Indians itriieout king, told Congress Tuesday that baseball club owners re- Card the players, as "pawns." Feller accused owners of an "arrogant" attitude toward collective bargaining. He said they have refused for i year to meet formally with player representatives on the question of a raise in the major leagues' minimum salary. Ted Williams Edges Ahead of Mantle on Baseball Poll NEW YORK Hi -- Ted Williami ler told i House antitrust subcom-l mittee. Feller, who closed out his lustrous career with the Indians last year, testified (n Ihe subcommittee's investigation of the legal status of baseball and other professional team sports. Before he appeared. Stan Musial crept ahead of their duel for bluest vote-getter in the 1951 all-star baseball poll, figures released by Baseball Commissioner F o r d Frick's office revelled Tuetday.

HU neireit Tiger Owners Have Gold To Build a Club By WHITNEY MARTIN NEW YORK if!--We ran across two of the eight owners of the Detroit Tigers over the weekend. Pieces of eight, you might · say, is these gents obviously were loaded (with gold, with gold). They were unmarked, despite all the rumors we have heard of battling in the crows' nest of the Detroit club, and we were assured that harmony is, and has been, rife in the snug little group. "All we want is to bring a pen nant to Detroit," said Fred Woolworth, * reformed Yankee fan who at the ripe old age of 23 finds himself with a fractional interest in a major league club. "That's right, none of us need * quick buck," said his father-in- law, George Coleman, a banker and cattleman of Miami, Okla., which is practically a suburb of Mickey Mantle's home town of Commerce. Or maybe it's the other way around. Woolworth, a tall, slim young fellow with a pleasant face, has a farm in Maine to which be commutes weekends after toiling in New York. "We both hare our own planes," he explained. "In fact, I have two." He wondered a little how a man living !n Maine and another in Oklahoma happened to be mixed up in a ball cjub living in Detroit. "Well," the affable Coleman laid a little hazily, "it's just a case of a group getting together with one idea--to buy a ball dub. Kenyon Brown is from Tens, Joe Thomas from New York, Paul O'Brien from Washington, Harvey Hanten from Detroit, and Bing Crosby, from H o l l y w o o d , of course." "George Js quite a golfer," Column's son-in-law laid, "he's one of Ben Hogan's best friends." George beamed modestly.

In as many games last year Mantle had a batting average o .376, 27 homers and 65 runs battec in. He finished the season with .353, 52 circuit blows and 130 RBIs. Rogers Hornsby and Ted Wil liams are the only big leiguen to have won the triple crown twice. Hornsby captured the three titles with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1922 and 1925 and Williams with the Boston Red Sox in 1942 and 1947. No one, howevtr, has won it two years in 'succession. A 13-point gain by M a n t l e coupled with a 16-point slump by Williams enabled Mickey to take over sole possession of tie bitting lead.
