W)—Stan Muslnl's lengthy batting streak Is at. an end todny but the sIar St. Louis Cardinal outfielder can be consoled by tlie knowledge thai he is only (he llth big leaguer to hit safely In 30 or more consecutive games. Musial entered yesterday's game against the Brooklyn Dodgers with a run of 30 straight games In which he'd hit safely.

His immediate goal was the team high of 33 straight hitting games set by Rogers Hornsby in 1922. The second was the modern National League mark of 37 games established by Tommy. Holmes of the Boston Brave^ In 1945.
