The professor wore a more-wrinkled-than-usual look when he took up the subject of the 22-year-old shortstop's fielding. "AH I know is that he's supposec to be a better thrower than this,' he said. "Phil Page had him down in BirminBham last year and he was going out making all the relays from the outfield. Throwing a lot of guys out, at the plate too Does that sound like a guy who can't throw?" No, Professor, it doesn't. W then is the answer? "Well, J can't bench him right this minute," said Stengel. "He's hitting .350 and that's good." Martin Recovering But he indicated that unless Lumpe improves by Friday, he's heading for a rest. By that time Billy Martin will have recovered from an army injury, Andy Carey has become more or less a fixture at third base, leaving only one opening for Gil McDougald, the all- around man—shortstop. Stengel thinks that Lumpe might be playing, under a strain. After all, it's not every rookie who breaks into a pennant-winning lineup. In fact, except for Lumpe and outfielder Lou Skizajs. every other rookie the Yanks had In spring stations has departed for way stations. Lumpe's throwing arm has been both weak and erratic thus far this year. It was the same in the Southland, but then he was operating off a bad leg. "Still," mused Stengel, ''he showed me something In Washington last week when he threw that big ;ju yout at the plate after playing ick." Stengel was referring to Lumpe tossing out Roy Sievers at the plate after fielding a grounder near the grass. Sievers was on third at the American Assn. No games scheduled.

LOUIS I* _ The Chicago Cardinals and Green Bav Packers vill meet at Busch stadium Sept. 5 in n National Football League exhibition that will be the first football game in the Cardinal Jail park in over 20 years Archbishop Joseph E. Ritter an- lounced Ihe game will be played ir the benefit of the Cardlngi •Icnnon Memorial Hospital for •hildren. to the Boston By JOE REICHLER The Associated Presi How much does Ted Williams mean Red Sox? The inescapable truth is that the Red Sox, without Ted Williams, are a second-division club. With him, they're a pennant contender. The recent series with the New York Yankees demonstrated how feeble the club really is when Williams is out of the lineup. The combination of a light schedule and bad weather yesterday, which wiped out all major league action except Brooklyn's 6-1 tory over Philadelphia, gave opportunity for a check of Boston box scores during the past four seasons. Starting with 1952, the year Williams left the club to serve his second term with the Marines, the figures show plainly Ted's value to the Red Sox. Foot Injury From the start of the 1952 season to date, the Red Sox have won 316 games while losing 305 for a .509 percentage. With Williams in the lineup, they won 144 and lost 111. That's a .565 gait. Without him, they won 172 and lost 194 for a .470 percentage. Boston won the first two games handily this season. Williams flubbed four hits in five times at bat. The Red Sox made it three in a row the next day with Williams out of the lineup because of a foot injury. Then came the three successive losses to the Yankees, 7-1, 14-10 and 13-6. Ted got into action in two of those games as a pinch hitter, driving in a run with a single. Boston's schedule game with Bnl- timore last night was postponed be cause of cold weather. It may prove a blessing because it gives Ted another day to recover from his injury. Five games were scheduled yesterday, all under the lights, but cold weather, rain and snow combined to wipe them all off the slate except the game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Phillies m Philadelphia. In Philadelphia, young Don Drys- clale. Brooklyn's rookie right-hand- er, made his first major league start and turned in an impressive performance. The 19-year-old Montreal graduate yielded nine hits but pitched superbly in the clutch, striking out nine batters. First-Place Tic The victory moved the Dodgers into a first-place tie with Milwaukee. Each club has a 4-2 record. Drysdale, a lanky, baby-faced youngster with a side-arming style not unlike Ewell Blackwell, walked only one batter. The kid himself set up the winning rally in the fifth. After Carl Furlllo had walked, he got the first hit off veteran Murry Dlckson. a single to left. Junior Gillinm and Pee Wee Reese followed with sin-! gles to give the Dodgers a 3-0 lead.; The Dodgers added insurance runs; in the eighth and ninth.

Doug Sanders Stamped Best In Pinehurst PINEHUKST, N. C. (IP) — Doug Sanders, who learned his golf on a nine-hole course In Cedartown, Ga., found himself in the role ol favorite as the North and South Amateur tournament, heretofore pegged as a wide-open affair, began match play today. The 23-year-old salesman, who now calls Miami, Pla., home, won the medal honors yesterday with a record-smashing 66, six under par. It was the lowest qualifying round since the 56-year-old tournament cut qualifying play from 3G holes to 18 in 1034. The confident, businesslike manner in which he played stamped Sanders as the man to beat. Sunders, the 1951 National Junior Chamber of Commerce tournament champion, won both the All- America and World Ainateur tournaments at Chicago last summer and also took the Mexican Amateur title.
