Features Games , Southern Association I :Hqs,ni-Scor£> Total For Seven Contests ' '. ' ' ,By TJnilerJ Press ' •Those adding machines you hear are, just the baseball'facts and figures -bugs, adding up the runs scored In the Southern Association last night. If' their tola! Is the same; as • ours. It's ill scores, and probably an all-time record for one Eet'of games. " • The batters went wild. In seven games they shelled a total of 32 pitchers of whom only two, Kinder oil Memphis and Cuellar of Nash- vWe, went the full route. The ball players didn't do as well in the Held as in the box, what with those 33 "errors committed during the night. But here's the way the games went: Atlanta played the only single- header at Knxunllle,-arid the Smo- kies won 17 to 1G with each team using four pitchers. The Crackers made a four-run rally In the final fraine, but couldn't overcome that Knoxvllle lead. Ray Viers homered for Atlanta. ; Birmingham stayed ivell in the loop's first place by taking two more,games from New Orleans—8 to 4 and'10 to 1. The Pelicans staged a rally late in the nightcap and got five runs, but did little more than stretch the game, which was called after eight Innings. And Daniel-of the Barons homered once, with the bases bare. In Uttle Rock, the Travelers split with Memphis, letting the Chicks take the opener 13 to 4. The nightcap was. a little closer and went to the • honietowners 5 to 4—with a ninth-inning'run winning the game. And the brightest' pitching spot was Charlie Cuellar's five-hit per- formabe against Chattanooga, when the Vols took the first game •! to 2. .He held the Lookout.? well in • check. until' the last •inning, when they made both tlielr riins. The Lookouts did poorly In the first Part of the nightcap, ton, but in the, seventh inning went on a seven-run:spree ami won the game 9 to 8. Tonight, the Southern features only Atlanta "at Knoxvllle and Nashville at -Chattanooga.

Fletcher Again Coaching Third McCarthy Takes Over After Illness, With Yanks In Good Shape NEW YOH1C, May 10 (UP)—To- iy Art Fletcher elves up the managerial reins of Die New York Ynn- kccs, ami returns to the comparative nulet of Hie third Ijfisc conch- i»B spot. He took over the Yankee pllollnc when Miiiingcr Joe McCarthy took to his bed iu the beginning of the .season, And under his tutelage the numbers luive lost, fewer games than any other major league team Hut Fletcher will be glad to (jo back to being a plain coach ngnln. Because he's one guy who doesn't tt'HJit to );e a mil linger. " He tried It once with the Philadelphia pillules—after hanging up his shortstop glove. The Phils were In (h c cellar at the time, ami Fletcher decided that the extra head- uchcs ol a pilot aren't worth the extra inoola. So he's been coaching ever since. And looking back In lite Fletcher scrap book, you'll find very few coaching inh'tiikcs a( third base. He's the sort of a guy who does BvcrythliiB well. He was n whale of a player. And he's just done a sweet Job of managing the Yankees. The New Yorkers arc ridlnu a six-game winning streak and arc ready to challenge (lie Browns for tho American toagiie lead. Fletcher handled the pitching assignments masterfully. And he. miirte ii emit Infield stride, when ho stuck Molosovclch In at short instead of Oscar Grimes, who hasn't been covering any ground this sprini;. Summing up. you might say thnt Art Fletcher is giving the Yankees bnck to Joe McCarthy in tip-Ion condition. Coy Scout Officials Attend Meeting Here A.
