Change in Batting Stance Aids Levey ni/ The Associated Prcsn. New York, May 10.—Jim Levey, ex- marine and shortstop for the St. Louis Browns, qualifies as perhaps the happiest ball player in the big leagues today. Like the familiar figure in the patent medicine testimonial, Levey's batting average last season was all run down, puny, suffering from almost every known variety of ailment. It lapsed to .209 at the season's close. Then, this spring, Manager Bill Killefer prescribed a major operation. He jerked the speedy shortstop's right- hand batting stance and installed him on the opposite side of the plate. It was an emergency measure, designed either to "kill or cure." The result is written In the records. Today the Levey average is one of the healthiest in the American league. In 24 games Levey collected 32 hits, including plenty of extra bases, for an average of ,348. He made only 104 bingles in 139 contests last season. Only two players in the league. Porter and Vverill of the Indians, had made more hits through yesterday's games. "It's the greatest thing that ever happened to me," he testified today. The sudden discovery that he can hit has the former marine so pepped up he refuses to welcome a day of rest. He was in high spirits today until word drifted through the lobby they had called off the Browns opening tilt with the Yankees. His face dropped. "They're quick on the trigger in this town, aren't they?" He looked out a window. "Dosen't look bad enough to call off a game." IRISH DEFEAT PURPLE By The Associated Press. South Bend, Ind., May 10.—Notre Dame concentrated on distance hitting today to defeat Northwestern 5 to 3, in the rain. The Irish made only six hits off Harris and Farber, but five of them were for extra bases. Ten state teachers' colleges In Wis- .consin have a league of their own for intercollegiate athletic competition. Home Run Standing Bit The Press.

Cincinnati, O., May 10.—Ray Bcnge muffled the big guns of the Cincinnati Reds today, scoring a 4 to 0 shutout for the Phillies and snapping a growing Cincinnati winning .streak at five games. A two run drive in the third spelled downfall for the Reds. McCurdy singled and took second as Kolp took a fielders choice, throwing to Morrissey who was not there. Bartell singled, Klein forced him sending in McCurdy and a passed ball on Lombardi brought Mallon home.
