Johnson, who's 3G'years old, has been hotter than the mid- July .sun this lust week. Ho -was swinging Into the ball in tho stylo that made him a terror at bat a decade ago. ' ' In less than a week he's connected with four gopher balls—'for a total of eight runs. Even In his best' days, Indian Bob didn't often top the ,300 mark, but he . was .the guy they, called an in the' pinches. For years, ho led tho league in runs batted in— and after all, that's where it counts. In 11 years in thfc American league he's batted in 1,103 runs-— and that's an average of 100 a year. His best day was in tho first in-: ning of a double-header, on August 29th, 1937. Bob set a new American league mark when he slopped up to the plate. He knocked in six runs, in.that single inning. .The tall outfielder .started to slide downhill in .1D42, but Clark Griffith, president of the Washington Senators, .needed a sparkplug, so'ho. traded Robert Estal- lea for the hnrd-hitting. gardener.

Tho time was nowhere near the world record of 3 minutes and'45- sbi.'onds, but It's fiulte. likely that both of the fleet Swedes will menace that mark as >woli as others before tho summer is. over. . \ Andersson iholds the mile record at just two and a fraction seconds slower lihan four minutes.. '"• Hagg and Anders-son again" bring up the age old question about •Iho possibility of a four minute' mile. '.''•' Many'couches 'havc'lnslst"-/; thai a four-minute .mile is. impossible, but the two smorgasbord .specials have gradually worked the -time down to tho point whore such a feat nol. only seems possible — H seems probable.

He batted in only 63 runs (is against his all-time record of 321. And he only connoctqfl with seven .homers —two loss than he has at the moment. So the Senators washed their hands of him and traded him lo Boston. And the bcan-lowncrs seem, to have ignited the spark. Chock your cares at the box-of- llce. folks, when you buy tickets Cor "Two. Girls and a Sailor," Mo-tro-Goldwyn - Mayer's tuneful, Jtestful now musical hit at the Strand theater. "You'll find .outstanding performances by three of the most popular youngsters on tho screen today— V.'m Johnson, June Allyson and Gloria. Do Haven—all of whom HQcm headed straight for stardom, in this story of two sisters who fall in love with a .mysterious "Somebody" who quietly arranges to fulfill fill their hopes for a largo scale canteen for servicemen and jcnds them orchids into the bar- i. Johnson iy the young sailor, mcl the Misses Allyson and De- I Haven play the singing-dancing sister act. "You'll find comedy by Jimmy Dut'fintc—the "Suhnoz/." himself; and Grace Allen, whose One Ginger Pltino Concerto is a classic of its kind. You'll find songs by Lena Homo, Carlos Ramirez and Virginia O'Brien. You'll find, serious music by Jose Iturbi and his slater, Amparo Novarro, and Albert Coatcs, the world-famous symphony conductor. And you'll .delight in the manner in which Harry Jnmns and his Music Makers and Xavlcr Cuyat and his orchestra "give out" with all kinds of songs you'll be humming again nnd again after you've left the theater. Under tho astute direction of Richard Thorpe, and with the renowned production touch of Joseph Pasternak,-"Two Girls and a Sailor" emerges as a delight to the eye mcl car. It's sheer entertainment from start to finish, ,So make a into now to see "Two Girls and A Sailor." Co-featured on the same program "Attack" (The Battle for New Britain) Manager Joe McCarthy has chosen his American league All- Star team starting lineup except for the battery. The ;Nciv York Yankees' pilot . will . lead his league's squad against the National ieaguc at Forbes field .tonight. McCarthy won't say which'of his pitchers..will open against the sen r ior loop stars. . ... • Most observers believe that Tox Hughson—the Boston .Rod Sox right-hander—will get the starting now from McCarthy. Another righty — McCarthy's own Hank Borowy—is another candidate for the opening job. Hughson has racked up thirteen victories for the second-place Red Sox this season while losing only three, Borowy has won eleven while dropping four games for the Yankees. Hero IB tho lineup McCarthy has chosen to start if tho National league loads off with a right- handed pitcher: Truman Tucker . of Chicago In center field; Stan Spcncc of Washington in right field; George McQuinn of St. Louis at first base; Vernon Stephens of St. Louis at shortstop; Bob Johnson of Boston in left field; Ken Kcltncr of Clove land at Third base; Bobby Doeri of Boston nt second base; and then the catcher and pitcher. If the Nationals open with, a loft- handcd pitcher, McCarthy will make two change's! He'll send Pete Fox -of Boston to right field . in place of Stan Spencc, and use Rudy York of Dctrlt at first in- stoBd of George McQuinn—the beat of the line-up will be the same. Rip Scwcll—tho Pittsburgh, Pirates' blooper-ball lessor—secma to have the inside track for the National league starting assignment. Rip is a right-hander. Wherever, there's. : a ' thumbtack and a man—there you'll nnd Betty Grable! It's as Inevitable as . that. For the simple, unadorned fact of the matter is that Betty stands today, as America's undisputed No. 1—.'.'Pin Up .Girl.'^ Seven million .service men—from Guadalcanal to Salerno—from Akron to. Alaska— whose barracks,'.tents',, planes and tanks her likeness, adorns, can't be .wrong!

Cards' Munger Inducted Today Thus,, it was no, accident that 20th Century-Fox decided ' to make ,a motion picture celebrating.. Miss-. Grablc's eminence .in the esteem," of the men of the armed forces,and: the public generally. The spectacular Technicolor production of "Pin Up Girl" which stars Betty Grable in currently showing at Locw Poll theater, is practically .a command performance. And, in further trib- utcl'o he unique position as a sensational real life personality who warrants a .salute is an especially patterned film production', the studio surrounded -her with a brilliant array of talent. Including John Harvey, Martha Rnyo, Joe E, Brown and Eugene Pallettc and fcaturinR Charlie Spivak and. His Orchestra.

Loerr. is a rflent guy who Icte the record- book sing his praises arid 'point out the fcicl, that he's probably the best second baseman working today. For several years Docrr's chief distinction has been the fact that he's the mosl, quiet second sackcr incc the days of Charley Gehring- r of Detroit. Right now he's battling with Hiurman Tucker of the Chicago iVhitc Sox for the balling load i™ he American league. That is a new experience for ,>oung Mr. Docrr who has only boon able to compile a. 7-ytar ma- or league average of .287.

Docrr was a unnimoui choice for the American league All-Slar toam and he's valued so .higJily thai the American league managers didn'i even select another second baseman.
