n CUVLMUJ ! FRALET. X S Pat BY OSCAR . NEW YORK. (UP). Hits, runs and errors on the sports scene: Inflation has caught up with the two professional football leagues, the National and the All-America, which were bidding themselves broke for the cream of the bumps and bruises crop. The power behind the All-America throne, a reliable In- iormant reveals, recently approached Commissioner Bert Bell of the National and asked for a financial truce. The A-A representative wanted the two leagues to agree to respect player contracts and consent to a Joint draft meeting. It was a belated attempt, however, considering that the A-A's had raided the National by then for just about everybody they wanted. Bell considered the proposition seriously but finally rejected it .-. . which leaves the way open for retribution and more financial woes ... . TALK ABOUT sincere Dodger fans, one was struck on the nose by a savage foul pop on opening day and had to be taken away for treatment. He was back two innings later and exclaimed: "Boy, wasn't I lucky. Just suppose it had hit me between the eyes and I couldn't see." . . . They ran the Boston Marathon Saturday and one of the most intriguing entrants was Ken Baily of Bournemouth, England. Over in the islands they call Baily "Public Energy Number One." The reason: In his racing and training he has covered more than 84,000 tabulated miles . . . That doesn't include sugar and butter races . . . The word out of Jamaica is that Count Speed, the full brother to the great Count Fleet, hasn't a ghost of a chance of getting a ride to Louisville for the derby. The colt has been out of training since falling in the first section of the Experimental handicap on April 9. The Count suffered a wrenched back and, while the stable is noncommittal, the feeling is that he won't go at Churchill Downs ... Davy O'Brien, the former T.C.U. and Philadelphia Eagle pass- master who retired from pro football to become a G-man, may be back this fall.

Six big Utiles trickled across the home .hassock in Round Six. The trouble started when Sandstedt walked Jim Venable to start the canto. Smith promptly sacrificed and Venable went to third a moment later when Baack threw wild to first on 1 Riley's bounder. t - BIG DALE MITCHELL, the Sooner "Sultan of Swat" was or dered passed by Coach Frank Smagacz, loading the sacks. The move must have made C. D. Deal sore for he promptly unloaded them with a vicious triple into deep left e DEL HOLT singled Deal home and a bingle into right sent the Sooner left fielder to third. He counted while Frank Brown was hauling down Johnny Chyz's hoist to left Watkins' three ply wallop to right sent Cairns home standing up with the sixth run of the frame. MEANWHILE the Huskers had lost Catcher Bill Kinnamon who suffered a split hand and was replaced by Rog O'Donnell. Mitchell got hold of one of Sandstetdt's fast ones in the seventh and sent it sailing over Truk Williams' head for a homer. Nebraska got its only runs In the eighth on a single by Sandstedt, Wes Maser's long triple to center and a bingle by Brown. OKLAHOMA added insult to to injury in the ninth. by combing Jim's best offerings for three hits and four tallies, Watkins opened with a single and crossed on Ven- able's triple. Smith walked and Watkins ambled home on Mitch ell's long fly to Brown. Deal then homered into left for the final tally. WATKINS was invincible in the pinches except for the eighth when he apparently . eased up. with a seven run lead. He fanned six and walked three.

Trailing 6-5 In their last turn rust at bat, and with ancient Johnny Niggeling, th Senators fifth hurlur on the slab, the Yankees quickly put two men on base. George Stirnweiss drew a walk and Hennch was hit by a pitched ball. Joe DiMaggio then lined a double off the left field wall, driv ing in Stirnweiss yith the tying run and sending Henrich to third. Henrich then scored on Lindell's hoist. The Yankees appeared to have the game won as early as the second Inning when they teed off on Southpaw Mickey Haefner for six solid hits and four runs to overcome an early 2-0 deficit The Nats kept pecking away at Lefty Joe Page and narrowed the Yankees lead to 4-3 with a single tally In the third. The Bronx Bombers regained their two-run advantage in the sixth. A walk off Walter Masterson, BUI Dickeys single and a wild pitch gave them their fifth run. After Al Evans homered for Washington In the seventh, the Senators sent Page to the showers when two walks, an error by Dickey and hits by Cecil Travis and Garry Priddy gave them a temporary lead.

At least two Kentucky Derby eligibles stood Friday as a definite threat to the favored Maine Chance Farm's "Smash Hand" in the May 4 grind at Churchill Downs. THEY ARE William Helis' speedy Rippey and Dixiana's Spy Song, who have been impressive in their spring workouts at the Downs. The big Pompey colt, rep resenting Helis fondest hopes for a Derby winner, was the first Derby eligible here to negotiate a mile in 1:4.32. ' Spy Song, Dixiana's lone nomi nation, also has been impressive, even tho the Balladier colt was a fraction of a second slower than Rippey in their last workout. Both have been training well. Maine Chance s favored Knock down still remains the horse to beat in the Derby, however, Ranked slightly behind now are Rippey and Spy Song, along with Lord BoswelL a Knockdown stablemate. Pirates favor baseball imioir PITTSBURGH. (JP). The Pitts burgh Pirates came home to a union-conscious town tnday and expressed themselves with few dissenting voices In favor of a players' guild to pinch nit lor them against the owners. THE MAJORITY in favor made this reservation, however: They don't like the idea of strikes in their prospective "labor league' any better than they like the variety the umpires call on them. Their feeling was that players should be united but that diffi culties should be Ironed out by parleying instead of picketing. Players in sympathy with the guild idea none wanted to be quoted for the obvious reason that aquads have not yet been peeled down to size felt that united representation could get them out of the "slavery" class in contract terms. Under present conditions, a player goes where the management sends him or else-he plays no organized baseball. "We need representation, espe cially since (Baseball CommiS' sioner) Chandler looks like he's an all-out owners man," said one.
