"The gripes?", he said, "Eight of 10 come from some rookie who hasn't played more than a couple of months in the big league. They want to show the boss they're the aggressive type.~ "Most, of the big fellows never open their mouths. Fellows like Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio. Jimmy Foxx ajid Charlie Gehrin- grer were the same. The other Detroit players claimed Gehnnger never said anything except 'Hello' at the start of spring training and 'Goodbye' at tne end of the season. "Babe Rutri wasn't too bad, either, although he'd gripe now and then. And Walter Johnson never hollered in his whole life." Of the current crop, McGowan mentioned oniy one—Sammy White the Boston Red Sox catcher. White Reformed "White u'a-- on his way to being one of the all time champion gripers last year. He'd jaw on every pitch. Something happened to him over the winter. Somebody, maybe Joe Cronin, must have had a talk with him This year, he's one of the best. I guess he saw the light." Reaching back through the years McGowan recalled his brush with Johnny Allen of the raggedy shirt sleeve. That -.vould be in 1938. "You know those sweat shirts pitchers like to wear?", he said. "Well, Johnny had taken a knife or scissors and cut out chunks of cloth—a diamond shaped piece here, an orange here and a plum there. The idea was to distract the batter with the shirt sleeve while the pitcher threw the ball past him. "Up in Boston one day, Allen had just thrown a called third strike past Joe Cronin in the first inning. On the way out to his position Cronin said, 'Bill, why don't you take n look nt that shirt?' I called Allen and told him it was against the rules for a pitcher to wear a raggedy, slit sleeve—I took the words right nut of the rule book. "He told me he h;ul been pitching with the same shirt for seven years but I said 'Take the shirt off or take yourself off the bench.' Made $100 On Oe:il "When it u'n.s Unie for Cleveland to take the field, no pitcher came out. Vitt (Marnier Oscar Vim rushed oui to ask what happened. 11 told him anci he asked me it" I'd [give him two minutes to convince i Allen to take off the. shirt and re- j sume piny. It was all right with me. "After a couple of minutes Vitt j came out mid lold me Jones or j somebody \voiilrt pitch. He had just j fined Allen S250. "When I sent my report in lo Mr. HarridRO, I fined Allen $250 too. But lhe Cleveland writers made such a fuss that Allen sold the shirt to a Cleveland dapart- ment store for SliOG. So he had marie $100 on the deal. I hear they even have that shirt up in Coopers- town. "Later Johnny went to umpiring. jl wonder if anybody ever tried to pull that raggedy shirt routine on him." Cost Lou Title Then there was the time a McGowan call cost Lou Gehrig the • home run championship of the ! American League. Gehrig and I Ruth finished in a tie with 46 each Jin 1931 but Lou should have won it all by himself | "The Yanks were playing Wash- 1 iuuton and Gehrig hit a ball into I the comer field bleachers eight rows back," paid McGowan, "The I ball was hit so hard it bounced jriclu back in the nir. Harry Rice i caught it and threw it nonchalantly I to second. "Lyn Lary was on first when Gehrig hit the ball and, as he roiinrJed second, he saw Rice catch the ball, thinking it was the third out. Joe McCarthy, coaching on third, was giving him the slow-uptake-it-easy sign but Lary thought he meant the ball was caught and slopped running. "Lary ran past third about 15 feel and then into the dugout as j Gfhrig came around the bases. As j soon as he passed the place where j Lary stopped running, I called him j out for passing a runner. It was toui;h Hick (cr Lou that U later • cost him the championship. But {you call 'em as you see 'em in I this business."

So Rocky Marciano, who would have fought La Starza on a street corner the day after their controversial match of 42 months ago, now will take on the former City College of New York student in a joust scheduled for 15 rounds at the Polo Grounds, Sept. 24. Rotary Downs Kiwanis 6-5 That all-important never-say-die spirit paid off in handsome dividends for the Rotary Club yesterday as the Roles clipped the game Kiwanis Club, 6-5, in their tie playoff, and and slipped into a Little League third-place deadlock. Trailing 5-1 and completely throt- | trapped at the plate trying to stretch it into a home run. Huey and Bobby Westbrook wasted a base hit in the third, when Stallings turned Rossi difficult infield grounder into an easy out to leave both stranded, but the Rotary Club came within one run of a tie with three in the fourth. Branscum was out as he bumped into his own batted ball. Hodge was safe on an in- Weil!, then the Madison Square Garden matchmaker carefully, building Marciano on the side, and; Jimmy DcAngelo, who handles La- Storza, were old friends, shook hands in agreeing that the winner of the first outing would give the loser a prompt return providing it was a good fight. It was an excellent battle to a highly debatable split decision. Quick to Weill meant three-and- a-half years, however, or until he figured his tiger was just about ready to step in with anyone. During that period, LaStarza and Fats UeAngelo—who, if he ever was porky, certainly isn't after this light income period of waiting- sat around pleading for the opportunity. When that got them nownere, they took on meaningless scraps, made little money and even less in the way of reputation. Indeed. LaStarza twice laid to regain lost prestige in rematches. history. LaStarza didn't look too bad and came from behind to beat Rex Layne. He couldn't get the finisher across despite flooring Dan Bucceroni five times. But LaStarza was fighting for ordinary money. This is a bit different. He's getting the big payday and crack at the crown he has wait- ed for. We don't loofc for him. to. win, but anticipate his putting up a rather well executed game stand. LaStarza, 26, at least is not an old pappy guy showing up lor a final touch. Rocky Marciano will have to make Roland LaStarza the next victim. This one will be a fight while it lasts, not a sitdbwn strike. tied by Don Stallings, the Rotes roared back with three runs in the fourth, then followed with the needed two tallies in their last time at bat to earn the well deserved victory that rivalled the thriller ol Thursday, when the two teams battled through two extra frames without reaching a verdict. Working without rest, having hurled the complete eight innings the day before, Curtis Branscum was the victor over Stallings for his third triumph of the season. And it was a big one to win for the freckled redhead. Aside from the first and third rounds when the Kiwanis tagged him for all their six hits and runs, the Huck Finn-type youngster was the master, although he had to choke off a determined Kiwanis rally in the top half of the sixth. It was his privilege to take care of Bobby Jacques' towering infield fly to settle the issue. Although rapped rather lively throughout, as evidenced by the Rotary's nine safe licks, including a pair of doubles and triples, Stallings was the victim of faulty defense, particularly during the three- run fourth Rotary uprising. But young Don distinguished himself with brilliant fielding of his position by handling four chances, some rather difficult, , to further attest his "Cat" nickname. The two teams reeled off two more double plays, almost identical, making seven for the two-game set. (The Rotary Club clicked five yesterday, four by the infield.) Oddly field hit that Palsgrove couldn't handle over third base. "Jerk" moved up on a passed ball and moved over to third as Palsgrove tossed out Jarratt. He scored when Tinker messed up Jimmy Lendennie's grounder. Jimmy swiped second and scored on Westbrook's second solid smack to right. The chubby Rotary right fielder took second on a wild pitch and galloped into the payoff station when Bruce threw low to first after handling Turner's easy hopper. Then came the Rotary deciding splurge in the last half of the fifth. Hxiey powered a triple to deep center. He easily made home as Jacques was disposing of Ross on a stunner to deep second. Branscum kept the skein alive with a one base knock, only to have the picture clouded as Hodge forced the pitcher at second, Jarratt came through with a double and Hodge raced all the way from first with the tie-severing run. Jar- , ratt was out trying to make third ,fi on the throw home. '" Kiwanis made a final death-like gasp but couldn't producce, although coming close. Nathan Austin again was passed. He was forced at seccnd on a neat play by Huey on Pals- to deep first. Pals- both came in the second inning. o . .

The Eagles pushed across tour runs in a big second Inning, added one in the third and two in the fourth.'
