Junior Chamber of Commerce of Manila is not due the adverse criticism it has received since it Is only the organization which guarantees the expense of the tournaments. It has nothing to do with the decisions, players teams. The only person responsible in case of a protest is the district commissioner whose decision cannot be appealed to the state commissioner or to national headquarters. The Junior chamber of Commerce does not select the commissioner, nor does the commissioner answer to the Jaycees.

Bj JOE KEICHLER CHICAGO, July 10. <AP) — The American League today rulej a strong 8-5 favorite to continue 1U dominance over the victory-starved Nationals in tomorrow's 17th renewal of baseball's all-star game. The fact that Vic Rase hi, veteran pitcher of the New York Yin- kees, will open up for the American Leaguers against Inexperienced Robin Roberts of the Philadelphia Phils has no bearing on the one- sided odds. The Amcrlcaas probably would be favorites to win simply because they've made a career out of knocking the tar out of their Inter-league rivals In the mid-summer nnd World's Series classics. Ever .since the mighty "Babe Rvith blasted hU U-o-run hornet to give it a 4-2 victory In the first all-star game 17 years ago the American League has had the upper hand and now leads 12 games to 4. The nation's last triumph came in 1944 A capacity Comlskey Park crowd of 49,000 will watch the teams in action. Bequests for more than 100,000 tickets were received. Roe Second Choice Each team will use at '.east *,hr« football Yankees' coach who did a little major league catching, points out that baseball Isn't the only sport where the heavy emphasis Is on scoring. ... It. goes lor football, too, »nd basketball. ... In Ihe lal ter game, for Instance, they used to spend minutes manevwcring for sure two-handed shot. Now every kid who comes along can pop 'em In with one hand from almost anywhere. ... Is baseball. Red argues, the schools, American Legion and other organized kid programs are turning out more well-coached players than ever before. . . . And Iheir main idea Is to wallop that ball as far as possible every time. . . . Billy Southworfh. who Insists the ball Is a lot livelier than before, adds the observation that a lot of pop flies go for basehlts these days because outfielders play KO far back looking for the long drives that they can't come In for the short ones. . . . "I was taught that you can't KO back farther than that wall." says Billy. "f played Just far enough awny that 1 could go back to it If necessn-;.. play the ball If it bounced off the wall or come in for the pop flics."

PITTSBURGH, Ju-Hy 10. (flV- Mr".-William Meyer, local baseball manager, entertained a group of visitors from the west over the weekend. After they left Mr. Meyer confided that they're his "cousins" from St. Louis. The ea-sy-golnir Pittsburgh Pirate mentor has good reason to dub the dazed Cardinals with baseball's synonym—"cousins" for easy mark. As seems to be a Pittsburgh custom, the Pirates thumped the Red Birds when It hurt most. The high flying Cards and Impotent Bucs got together at Forbes Field Friday night to begin • three game scries. The visitors wcr« on top of the National League and the Piratevat the bottom. To make the picture more ominous for Meyer's limping crew the Cards sported a seven game winning streak and Pittsburgh had lost 31 out of their previous 39. So the Pirates proceeded to whip their guests three ttmes—9-1, 7-6 and 3-2—and topple the perplexed Cardinals off their league-leading perch. It marked the firM, three game torium. Two one-fall preliminary bouts are also on the card with Getz meeting Moody and Roberts meeting Martinez. period. ... I lived just one mile from school. When Ihe lunch bell rang, I would run home, cat, grab bat and ball and rim back to the playground to save the diamond for my teammates," Montfay Matinee Andy Gufstafson, who coached at West Point during the Blnnchard- Davls era, thinks he might have a carbon -copy of "Junior" Davis at the U. of Miami In sophomore Bob Schneienbach of Newark.
