Harris Likes Infield Wistfully looking back 2U years to the days when Harris, now Senators manager, led the Senators to the American League pennant, Griffith said, "it's beyond doubt, the best infield we've had since." The infield will line tip tomorrow with Irv Norcii at, first base. Mich- ads at second, San, Denle ut shortstop and Ecdie Yost at third. Norcn, whom the Senators bought from Brooklyn's Hollywood larm club In the Pacific Coast league last winter for $70,000, had been the regular conte.fielder until he entered the hospital earlier this month for an appendicitis operation. But he was a first baseman before he became an outfielder and should have no trouble. This new alignment adds up to one of the youngest Infields in the majors. Noren is 24, Michaels 24, Dcnte 27 and Yost 23. I'raiscs Robinson "Bucky and I both haled to lose Eddie Robinson," he said. "Hobby is a great team player and a fine gentleman, a real credit to baseball." Griff feels that Michaels with a .308 average last year and .309 so far this season, will offset, Robinson's power at the plate. "Kllxava and Scarborough are about'even." he continued. "Kup.ava with a 10-fi record last year was almost as good as Scarborough who won 13 and last 11." Criiflith also was happy about tbe "difference in age.s. Kuzava, a lefthander, Is 27 and has a 1-3 slate this season while Scarborough will be azqiexl month. His record for this season is tiirce victories against five losses. Scarborough's move to the White Sox ends a host of rumors about his being traded to Boston or New York.

OT—It was toji billing for Johnny Arsons in the auto racing world today. The one-dme child vaudeville star added the 500-mile Memorial Day race victory yesterday to his 1949 national driving chumpionshjp. The blue-eyed, slender pilot from Van Nnys, Calif., get an assist from a rainstorm that stopped the contest at 34') miles. Bui he had driven that far faster than any car had traveled in 33 previous "500s." Parsons did It with style, or call it born-aml-bred showmanship, in his harltm yellow Kurtis-Kraft. lie and Mauri nosi> ol South Bend, Ind., three-time winner, swapped the lead four limes in the first ^15 miles. The third time Rose zipped past Parsons on the main straight- Rame. The outfielder missed by four feet hitting four homers itl a row. lie got » single on a line drive just below the top of the right field screen. I away. Parsons whooshed around I Rose about 100 feet down the track —driving with one hand and waving to the crowd. It was only the second Indianapolis race for Parsons, who ran second last year to Bill Holland of Efeadir.g, Pa., for a neat two-year average. Paraons' speed was 124.002 miles an hour for the distance although the caution light slowed the field to 90 miles an hour for nearly five minutes after Hie rain started. There was no exact comparison with Holland's record speed at the same stage of the completed 1949 race. At 300 miles Parsons had averaged 124.C07 miles an hour, com 1 pared with Holland's record of 121.000 for that distance. Holland was the only leader yesterday besides Parsons and Hose and might have come closer to a repeat victory if he hadn't lost time on a false step nt the pits. Trying to slop for fuel, he overshot' his pit and had to make another circuit of the track under speedway rules'.' School Teacher Enrout* To Hiroshima Agoin LOS ANGELES, May 31.
