Boston Weather Eyed Skeptically Somebody Speedy Improvement With Return Of Williams By (I.AYljK TALIJOT NK\V YORK W - The office skeptic, upon whom we lean heavily in e v a l u a t i n g the clay-to-day goings-on' in the sports world, is far from convinced thai the Boston Hcd Sox really needed to postpone 10 of their f i r s t M home games because of bad weather. "If Ted W i l l i a m s h a d n ' t been out With the lame shoulder, I ' l l bet hey would have managed to get some of t h e m in," he sas-s d a r k l y . "It couldn't have buen al'l that bad up there. I predict you'll see a tvonderful improvement in the Boston weather when thev get jack from their western trip". How they'll pack 'em in for ail those Jouble-heuders." This was, we explained to h i m . Faulty t h i n k i n g . The weather could b(.\ w a r m i n g tip at Kunwav Park regardless of W i l l i a m s ' c o n d i t i o n . Our man looked only half convinced. Needless to say it was warm in Detroit and the big guy went to town--S for 9, with a double, two homers and seven HBIs.

Taylor Herlierl .Marshall Record Room -Suspense Talent Scouts ltailio:id Hour Howard llnrlow If by any chance a single base hit should deprive Stan Musial of another National League batting title next fall, the great Card slug ger always will feel that he was undone by the official scorer at Ebbets Field the other day. He's still grumbling about the decision. A t e a m m a t e was on first when The Man rapped a grounder between the f i r s t and second basemen. Gil Hodges, Brooklyn first sacker, scooped it up and started to throw for the foreeout at second. He saw he would le late, so whirled for a toss to first, b u t found that his pitcher hadn't reached the base in time. So both runners were safe. It was scored as a fielder's choice on the ground that Hodges had "made an attempt, to retire a preceding'runner," even though he didn't actually throw the ball. Musial, who has his sights set on reaching 3,000 hits before h e ' s through, was torn with anguish. Perhaps the rule Is wrong, but it doesn't specify that a throw must be made. 0:00 News: Dance 9:15 Time 0::iO Dance UM5 Time lU'cord Room Kecord Room Record Room Radio Theater Radio Theater Telephone Hour Band of America 13and of America 10:00 Dance 10:15 Time 10:30 Dance 10:45 Time Headline Edition Lonesome ( J a l News; .McCarthy HiBllllBhls News: Here's Flh!er McGee 1'ntsy News News: Sporls Two I n Forward March the llalcony 11:00 Ed Pettitt 11:10 Mood Indigo 11:30 Mood M:-I5 Indigo; News News.
