(U.P.)— Pitching arms thtU have lost their ?.l|> can't be rejuvenated with push buttons and boss Joe McCarthy of the Boston Red Sox must be painfully aware ol tnut fact lodny. McCarthy, who thought he had troubles when Tex Hnghson'.s ami went dead, now must face the realization thai Dave Kcrriss, the sensitlioiuU pitcher of the 1SH5 and 1946 campaigns no longer can he depended UIKJII as an effective starter. 4- Perries, who had only an ordinary record of 12 wins and 11 losses lust season, had hoped lo come back as an ate this year, but unless he docs a very prompt "about face," the chances of his doing so are mighty slim. And with no other hurler on the Boston stafl perfoiminc in a consistent winning manner, McCarthy must yearn for the peaceful life he gave up on his, N. Y,, farm to return to baseball as pilot ol the Red Sox. Yesterday iti Detroit. Ferriss wu.s coasting along with a G to 0 l when suddenly In Che sixth inning the roof caved in and the Tigers came out with seven ituus. They went on to beat ihc Red Sox. 10 to 7, and even though Denny Galr- hoiise and not Ferris was taggcrt with the defeat, Hie bitterest itrin for McCarthy w:»i iliat Hit- handsome righthander from Shaw, Mi5,s., was knocked out for the third straight time.

McCarthy, i great manager who didn't deserve the title of "pushbutton" pilot that rival Jimmy Dykes kidding!? conferred upon him, hart other troubles yesterday —the Red Sox made two cost ly frrors which gave Detroit seven unearned runs. But the Tigers got 11 hits, three by Put MulUn. Bobby Doerr and Dom DiMag[;io each got three for Boston.
