Blankensi'.lp provided the ticket and the young pitcher went to Washington. At \Vashi-rvgton, Johnson became one of the greatest pitchers ever Io step on the mound. They called him "the Big Train." But he was just a raw luind when he first reported to the Senators —a .rookie with a high, -hard fast ball. They say the Big Train -could throw a baseball faster than any man svho ever lived. Tesls on a velocity-measuring machine supported that claim. When he start- itd pitching for the Senators 'the opposing batters just blinked their. and wondered.

The Pennsylvania belter chipped a bone in. his hand in his'- victory over Lee Sovold on May 26th. He's called off his bout with St. Thomas. Baksi was supposed to have met the Negro slugger on July 1-lth — but thnt's off now. And nobody is sure just when Baksi will light again. Meanwhile Thomas has refused to accept Lee Q. Murray as a substitute for Baksi. Baksi is the current top man in the heavyweight division. Murray and .Thomas hnvg good records against second raters— and Lou Nova is starting a comeback. But the Californian who trained on Yogi exercises for his bout with Joe Louis hasn't licked any really impressive fighters. Vorderamo became careless.

A sensational step by Cy Block on Kelly's hopper saved the Brassco's relief artist to end the Inning, when things looked dark for the New Haven lad. With Sarvis on the hill for the Black Yankees the Mullen- coached crew jumped all over the invader for three tallies before Spencer could put cut the fire with a beautiful one-handed stab that retired the "side. Block opened the cliuck- cr with his third single and Tommy Sheehan worked Sarvis for a free pass to first.

Thompson's triple and Kelly's double featured the siege. It looked as if the game might go into extra innings as the Negroes were hitting the Brassco pitcher.
