July 3. (AP)—One of the penalties for being a .sjjorts writer is that you're not supposed to let personalities affect your cal- culatlojis. . . Here conies the Fourth of July when al] Rood "experts" lire expected to .survey the status of pennant raee.s and prc-season predictions, , . We'd like to be ixiot- ini! for Ihe Tiscra nnd Phillies (because there's no nicer guy in biise- bull tliiin Red Rolfc and we like the way the whole Phil crew operates). . . . But what are you going to do alxnit a few other personal favorites like Steve O'N'cill. Eddie Dyer and Billy southwoith. . . Rolfc still doejn't have the bench strength at Detroit and the Red Sockers, who figured to be the best team, have been playing like it .since O'Neill took over, . . With Brooklyn's pitching faltering, almost anybody could win that National Lwmue pennant, but the Phils seem to have trouble taking the touch games. . . So we'll let our original selections —Bu.ston and Brooklyn—stand until further notice. SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION Atlanta . .. Birmingham Memphis . . Nashville . , Now Orleans Mobile . .

So Onslow plays with only two outfielders and when eight players have taken their turns at bat, n'n automatic out is ehalkcd up. . . , That really hurt in one game when there were two out and Ihe bases full when Mr. Automatic's turn came up. . .
