He recalls hearing Babe Ruth quoted that he could have hit .400 s consistently if ne hadn't been trying for home runs all the time. . -. . Unless Johnny Antonelli tr Bob Lemon, make remarkable finishes, no pitcher seems likely to reach the mark of 25 victories this season.. . .Robin Roberts, who won 28 in 1952, was the last National leaguer to win 25 since Bucky Walters pitched 27 victories and Paul Derringer 25 for the 1939 Cincinnati Redlegs. Mel parnell of the Boston Red Sox was the last American leaguer to pitch 25 victories, accomplishing it in 1949. . . . Bob Feller and Hal Newhouser of Cleveland each pitchod 26 in 1946 and Dave Ferris of the Red Sox got 25 the same year. . . . Last season there were, eight who won 20 or more. . . . Roberts, Parnell, Lemon, Virgil Trucks, Warren Spahn, Carl Erskine, Harvey Haddix, and Bob Porterfield. Jockey Eddie Arcaro, who will ride Maine Chance farm's Jet Action in the $168,850 "Washington Park handicap today, brought in the winner of the 1933 running of this event. ... It was No More, which earned $2,295 for his performance. . . . Things have changed in 21 years. ... Today's winner will bring his owner approximately $110,000. . . Arcaro has ridden the winner of nearly every important stake in the country during his 23 years as a jockey. . . . Some of his greatest victories were scored at Washington Park one of them aboard Calumet farm's mighty Citation in the American Derby of 1948. Otto Graham, Cleveland Browns quarter back, who completed 64.7 -per cent of his passes last season, says: " The ability to pass a football is something you either have or have not. . . . It's a matter of coordination. ... But even a fellow with coordination won't be a great passer unless he works at it." . . . Like great performers on the stage, Graham admits that even after so many seasons he's still under considerable tension just before a game He says that when he doesn't get excited any more it will be time to quit. . . . The University of Nebraska athletic department barely avoided going in the red during the last fiscal year. . . . The books showed a net profit of about $100. . . . 'The preceding year the Cornhusker ' athletes showed a $99,000 profit With the football season upon us, we may expect the usual quota of gloomy prognostications from football coaches. . . V The master of them all, perhaps, was Gil Dobie, who also was one of the most successful. . . While walking one fine morning, Dobie met a friend who ventured the observation that it was a nice day. . . . " So far," Dobie admitted bleakly. ... When some of his boys got excited at spotting President Roosevelt while the squad was passing thru Washington, Dobie grunted: "He lives here, doesn't he." . . . After one of Dobie's Washington teams had beaten California, 72 to 0, he ordered 20 laps around the field for everyone. . . .He once caught a back field man staying out late and eating candy and ordered him to carry the ball on every play in the next game. . . . As the back crawled off the field after 20 plays, Dobie pointed a scrawny finger at him and shouted: " You will break training, will you!

Richardson, double-faulting once and netting two weak volleys, dropped his delivery in the fourth game of the opening set and broke vSeixas' service in the 26th game of the second set after Vic had fought off 6 set points. The turning point came in the third set when Richardson, taking quinine pills to combat fatigue, had Seixas cornered and let him slip away.

It costs $1,000 to enter each horse today, $500 having been paid to enter Saturday morning. This year's net to the winner will be the third highest in the handicap's history. Crafty Admiral earned $119,900 in 1952, King Ranch's Curandero earned $113,930 in 1951, and Sickle's Image added $108,500 to her record last year. Sir Mango Top Weighted Harry N.

Clutch hitting by Junior Gilliam and Duke Snider brought Brooklyn victory. Johnny Podres started for the Dodgers and pitched three hit ball for seven innings before he tired in the eighth and had to be relieved by Carl Erskme, yesterday's starter and loser. Podres who underwent an appendicitis operation last June, was credited with the victory, his ninth of the season and only his second since June 13. He has lost six. Antonelli No Puzzle Johnny Antonelli, the National league's only 20 game winner, was the Giants' start er, ne was removed tor a pinch hitter in the fifth after Don Hoak's lea doff triple. Podres' sacrifice fly and Gilliam's 13th home run of the season had given Brooklyn a 3 to 1 lead. The Dodgers added three more in the seventh, driving Jim Hearn from the mound and continuing the assault on Hoyt Wilhelm. An , error by Alvin Dark was followed by a walk to Podres and succes sive singles by Gilliam, Pee Wee Reese, and Snider. The loss was charged to Antonelli, his fourth, of the campaign.

KLUSZEWSKl 8 GAMES BEHIND BABE RUTH PACE Cincinnati, Sept. 5 W) Ted Kluszewski of the Cincinnati Redlegs. boosted his major league home run lead by slugging his 43d and 44th of the season in today's double header against the Milwaukee Braves, but he's well behind Babe Ruth's record pace. Ruth, whose 60 homers for one season stand supreme, clouted his 44th in the New York Yankees' 128th game of the 1927 schedule on Sept. 2. That opened the Babe's mighty barrage of 17 homers in September that carried him to the record. The second of today's double header was the Redlegs' 136th game, leaving Kluszewski eight games behind Ruth's pace with only 18 games remaining. Ruth hit No. 49 in the 134th game on Sept. 7 and blasted No, 50 four games later on Sept. 1L 75,000 See Cork Win Irish Hurling Crown DUBLIN, Sept 5 UB Cork won the all-Ireland senior hurling championship before 75,000 at Croke park today, defeating Wexford by 1 goal and 9 points to 1 goal and 6 points. YANKS DROP 2D STRAIGHT, 5-4 Senators Beat Sain on Yost Hit in 9th Washington, Sept. 5 UP) Eddie Yost wrecked the New York Yankees today with a two out single in the ninth inning that gave the Washington Senators a 5 to 4 victory in a thriller before 17,296. The Senators' victory, which gave them the series, 2 to 1, was recorded by Bob Porter- field, an ex-Yankee who made ms first reiiet pitcning ap pearance of the year. Ed Fitz Gerald opened the ninth with a single, moved up on a sacrifice and an infield out and scored when Yost lined Johnny Sain's first pitch into the left field corner. Home Run Battle The Senators knocked out Starter Ralph Branca with a three run first inninj and Mickey McDermott mowed the Yanks down with hitless pitching for the first fVz innings. But McDermott lost his touch in the sixth and walked in a run after Enos Slaughter got the only hit off him. Harris yanked McDermott in favor of Porterfield who gave up a two run double by Slaughter in the seventh tying the score. Pete Runnels slammed his tnird homer of the year in the eighth to put the Senators one up again but Gil McDougald equalized that with his 11th homer in the top of the ninth. Stengel used 19 players in his futile effort to win., Branca was followed by Jim Konstanty and Eddie Lopat, who held the Senators scoreless for 6 innings. Sain turned out to be the losing pitcher, evening his record for the season at 5-5. Yanks Sloppy in Field Branca was the victim of poor outf ielding in the first inning. After getting Yost on a strikeout, he walked Jim Busby and Mickey Vernon doubled to left. Bob Cerv kicked it around long enough to allow Busby to score. , ' "; Runnels popped up but Tom Wright singled to score Vernon with the second run. Jim Lemon then singled to center sending Wright to third, but Mickey Mantle tried to pick Lemon off first and overthrew the bag.

That's what hap-pened to the third placers in Comiskey park and the Cleve land Indians were grateful to take the odd game of the series without too much pressure on themselves, 8 to 2. It was a iackDot afternoon for the Indians. They went four ana one-naif games up on the second place New York Yankees, who had their second straight attack of Potomac fever when they lost to the. Senators in Washington. This is a tidy lead for the Indians, who have only 18 games left. Nineteen games remain on the Yankee schedule. ' " : Pierce Departs in 4th Billy Pierce made one of two official Sox errors and left in the fourth inning from a combination, which included a robust batting attack, his own wildness, inadequate support and .heat in the mid 90's. Art Houtteman, the Indians starter in the three hour battle, went out infhe fifth inning when the White Sox scored their second and final run.
