(AP) — After each'tremendous outburst of major league baseball scoring— and there have been some dlllies lately—you can Jiear talk about a "rabbit" bull. . . . Some pitchers even have claimed they can see its ears. . . . But National League proxy Ford Prick just snorts "Ridic- ukius] I'd say poor pitching accounts for those .scores." ... He cat] safely say thut because the biggest scoring sprees have occur- rfd in the American League. . . . "The .specifications for the otiicial bn.seball are .somewhere around this office; I (fon't know where," f says Ford. "They haven't been changed since about 1922. I suppose ihe manufacturers test their products regularly." . . . Frick's theory Ls that every change in the baseball rules in 20 years has ftu-oved the hitters and he agrees halfheartedly that the 1950 re-wording of the definition of the "strike zone" might be one of changes. ... "1 told my umpires there was absolutely no change," he explains, "but there's always a twilight zone where the umpire has to decide whether it's a strike or a ball. I opposed the change from '.shoulders' to 'armpits 1 because I thought it might mean lowering (hat twilight zone." . . . P.S.: Wouldn't that be okay for twilight games? Corn Off the Kohs One bright day thLs spring, Ted Maupin. Michigan State first baseman, skipped baseball practice to play a little golf. . . Ted cooked up a nice, story Tor Coach John Kobs about the need for extra study and took off for the links. ... All he did was make the first holc-in-one of the season and pet his feat plns- tered nil over the local ! papers and radio. . . . Next day Maupin was mopin' around, certain he'd be bounced from the squad, but Kolxs wisely played deaf and blind, . . . Like Joe McCarthy, John finds It easy to get along witli a .300 hitter.

Joe Collins had been informed he was to be Chief of Staff of the Army he immediately wired his friend Gen. Floyd L- Parks who was stationed at Pearl Harbor that he wanted him to come back to the Pentagon tn the same job he had just left, as Chief of Information. Parks informed the Pentagon that he was returning reluctantly, but that they'd have to wait a few days because he planned to stop off in San Antonio, Tex., and win the Army's senior golf championship. Gordon Gray, then secretary of the Army and golf crony of Parks', got a big laugh out of this boasting, but the laugh was on Gray because Parks actually won the champion- chip. That's why, when Gray left the Army, he donated a Inigc silver loving cup as the perpetual award for the sen tor golf champ and presented it to Parks first.
