Cleveland Looms As Team To Beat By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer With Bob Feller serving warning that he is once again the master moundsman of old, the Cleveland Indians loomed today as the team to beat for the American League pennant. True, the Tribe is in third place a game and ? half behind the front- running Boston Red Sox. and a half game back of the runner-up New York Yankees. However, with Fe.- ler apparently returned to form, and Bob Lemon to back him on the firing line, the outlook for the Indians appear very bright. The schedule, too. seems to be In their favor. They have 28 games remaining and 23 of them arc against second division teams. Teller turned in his second straight sterling performanc last night, permitting the Philadelphia Athletics only six hits, and striding out his season high of mne, as the Indians won 8-1. The victory was Feller’s 14th against as many defeats. Teller had a shutout until the ninth when pinch hitter Carl Schieb doubled and scored on Barney Me- Cosky’s single. The Red Sox maintained their hold on first place by routing the Detroit Tigers. 0-1. at Fenway Park. Jack Kramer notched his 15th victory aganst four defeat” doling out eight hits. The Red Sox collected 10 aganist four Bengal hurlers. Yogi Berra's lith home run. coming with two but in the last of the 12th, gave the Yankees an uphill 5-4 victory over the St. Loui- Browns. Tommy Henrich's two-ou' double in the ninth chased in Cliff Mapes with the tying run. The Washington Senators slaved off a ninth inning rally to nip the Chicago White Sox. 5-4, and move past the Browns into sixth place. The Brooklyn Dodgers opened up a half game lead over the Bos tor1 Braves in the torrid Nat:fm4! League race when they turned the tables on Johnny Schmitz and defeated the Cubs m Chicago. 6-0 At the same time, the Braves, who started the day two percentage points behind the Brooklyn, were held to a split in their doubleheader with the Reds in Cincinnati After Johnny Vander Meer bested Warren Spahn. 3-1. in a hurlin? duel, the Braves bounced back tc slaughter the Reds. 11-1. The St. Louis Cardinals swept past the Pittsburgh Pirates into third place, defeating the Philadelphia Phils, 4-2. in a night game in St. Louis. Righthander Robin Roberts walked in two St. Louis runs, and Ron Northey cracked a heme run. Southpaw Monte Kennedy dumped the Pirates into fourth place by pitching the Sew York Giants to a 3-1 triumph in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh scored its run in the ninth on a walk, stolen ba %e and Ed Fitzgerald's smglf* The Giants got all their runs off Ernie Bonham in the fifth Sid Gordon singled in two and Kennedy the other. BAPTISTS WILL MEET METHODISTS TONIGHT Tonight at 7:30 p. m., at the Carnes’ Park Softball field the mptlsts Church softball team will do battle with the team representing the Methodist Church. These games arc provided much entertainment for attending fans .uid the public is invited t attend. THB CAMDEN NEWS. CAMDEN, ARKANSAS Porker Graders Open Fall Drills Fayetteville, Sept. 2 -(/P)— Arkansas' Razorbacks may accomplish more than their coaches had hoped in the period of less than throe weeks they have to prepare ft .■ their 1948 football opener. The reason is that the 70 candidates who reported for the first two practice sessions of the season yesterday appear to be in unuual- ly fine hysical condition following the summer vacation. With less trouble in getting the Porkers into playing shape, more time can be devoted to scrimmage and game strategy. Head Coach Barnhill lost no time in the pair of two-hour workouts yesterday. He had several back- held units running plays in a dummy scrimmage and the linemen working on their assignmnets in sessions which closely resembled those of midseason last year. More of the same was scheduled today. Working in what apparently will be the first backfield combination were Clyde (Smackover* Scott, the all-America candidate at tailback» Leon 'Muscles) Campbell, the brusing fullback who seems to be fully recovered from a knee injury which dogged him last year; pass- snagging Ross Pritchard at wingback and Alvin Duke, the veteran blocking back and defensive star. Among those turning out for the first drills were 23 lettermen, a lock of 1947 squadmen who failed io letter, several junior college transfers and players up from last year’s freshman team. A dozen or more others, including lettermen. Tackle Leon Whittaker and Back Bill Davis, are expected to Join the squad within a few days. The Razorbacks’ first game will be with Abilene. Tex., Christian ollege at Little Rock, Sept. 18.

Memphis Back In Top Spot By The Asft'clated Press Memphis tvime through last night in one of the Southern Association’s tightest spots in years with a doubleheader victory and today leads the league again. The Chicks whipped the New Orleans Pelicans 4-1 and 5-2, to go ■ into the lead. Nashville played a I single game, won it 4-3, but ; dropped into second place. The Vols handed the Birmingham Barons their first defeat in eleven games. One percentage point separates the Chicks and Vols — Memphis playing .600 ball and Nashville .599. The battle for Southern leadership can be altered considerably tonight since Memphis is scheduled for another doublcheader in New Orleans while Nashville is down for a single game at home against Birmingham. The Chicks need two tonight to stay on top In the event Nashville wins. Only one other Southern game was played last night. Chattanooga won from Atlanta 2-1. Little Rock at Mobile was rained out. Games Tonight: Atlanta at Chattanooga. Little Rock at Mobile. Memphis at New Orleans (2). Birmingham at Nashville. Fordyce, Sept. 3 <Spl> — A total of 27 boys, including nine lettec- men are reporting daily for football practice to Coach Clyde E. Trickey. Daily workouts are being held in the morning and evening as the 1948 Redbu«: team prepares for the first game, Sept. 10. with Warren, here. It Is too early to state who will make the first team. Coach Trickey said, or to guess at what kind of a team Frrdyce will have this year. The Redbugs will have to depend heavily on such returning lettermen as Jackie Crowder, two years; Bob Watts, two years; Georuc Rogers, two years; Richard Fulmer, one year; Johnny Mays, one year: Johnny Green, one year; Don Hillman, one year; Houston Nutt, one year; Billy Helms, one year. As was the case last year, the Redbugs will be a light team and will have to depend on speed to overcome the heavier squads from larger cities. The Redbugs again will play one of the toughest schedules in the state. Rated as AA, they will play four big six teams. Bob Watts and George Rogers were selected as co-captains. The 27 who turned out for football Friday are as follows: Bob Watts, George Rogers, Jackie Crowder, Billy Helms. Houston Nutt, Don Hillman, Johnny Green.

Bearden Holds Night Sessions The Bearden Bears begin a night practice sessions last night in preparation for the seasons opener with Lewisville at the local fielc Thursday night Sept. 9. but due to a conflict the game will be played on Friday. The Bearden team will be mould­ ed around a heavy experienced lint which will be two to three deep at each position. Two freshmen, Jimmy Jones and William Summers, are making strong bids for starting positions at tackle. The backfield Is heavy and fairly fast and the reserves are light, but fast. All are showing ability as runners with two good passers and one excellent kicker. Coach Jim Cook says he hopes to win at least 50 percent of the games, but due to the lack of overall experience he is very passimis- tic about the chances of equalling last years team, when the Bears won 8 and lost 3.
