But Rob Roberts and Whitcy Ford shrugged off the weather like a pair of guys working for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. In Philadelphia It was dreary and rainy, yet Roberts kept the world champion New York Giants hitless for 8 1-3 Innings yesterday before getting tagged for three hits and two runs. The Phils' right-handed ace still claimed a 4-2 victory, however, in the National League opener for both clubs. And In New York, with temperatures in the 40s and wind lashing a. steady mist, Ford allowed Wash-, ington Just two singles as the Yankees brawled Into the American League season with a 18-1 rout of the Senators. Despite the numbing cold, the young lefty went nine innings for the first time this spring.

The smallest opening day crowd In a quarter of a century at Ebbets Field—0.999—shivered while Brooklyn and Curl Ersklnc bent Pittsburgh 7-1 in the only other National Leagu* game scheduled. In the American, Detroit's Tigers forgot about welcoming Kansas City into the league graciously und clubbed the Athletics 10-2. Rain postponed the Boston at Baltimore game. What happened at Connie Mack Stadium was just another chapter In Roberts' frustrating chase of a no-hitter. He's been thwarted In fantastic fashion thus far. At Cincinnati last May 13, for Instance, he was greeted by a leadoff home run by Bobby Adams — then retired the next 27 men he faced lo win 8-1.

Robin wns ahead of the hitler with 0-2 count when the Giants' captain singled on' an errant curve. Before the side was out, Monte Irvln doubled both runners home and Hank Thompson scratched a single. Ford had a more relaxed afternoon than did Roberts and found time to drive In four runs on three singles. Washington's two singles were by Roy Slcvers In the fourth nnrt Pete Runnells'ln the fifth. Ford walked five but fanned eight. He would have had a shutout except for a balk when he slipped, from Ihe mound In the sixth with « runner on third.

S ports Roundup bu Ualbo Cockell Compared to Farr NEW YORK (AP) — While taking sightings on round Don Cockell and listening to by slanders predict dire things for him when he fights Kocky Marciano in San Francisco nex month, we suddenly experienced a strange feeling that all this had happened before. Ji wasn't In a dream either. Back in 1B37 they brought over another British carnival attraction named Tommy Fsrr as a sort of sacrificial offering to young Joe Louis, the killer. If you think the promoters are being given a going- over for importing the tubby bat tier from BaUersea, you Just should have heard what the perts said when they saw the corrugated ears on Farr.

Fights (or Title As the time neared for the execution, the odds went to 3-1 that Louis would win by a kayo. We still recall happily that we grabbed some of that. The only excuse was that we had seen Farr fight a couple of times in London and knew he was a pretty good man. Luckily, we had not seen Louis up to that time and so didn't scare easily. Well, you can look it up. For 15 bruising rounds Louis was given all the right he could handle. The champion never looked like stopping the game Welshman, who moved in on him as though he owned him round after round. Joe was forced to put out everything he had to save his title.

Visiting Around'Arkansas B Y J O E MARSH Hot Springs,.jewel of Garland County, is probably the most talked about place in Arkansas. Still "Bathing the World"... And speaking of enjoyment, both the present day and early Americans have enjoyed the fine beer and ale made by the American brewing industry. And today, through its self regulation program, the industry is bringing the public finer products in clean and wholesome cafes, taverns, and food markets. More than a half.million visitors come to Hot Springs annu- ally.either to regain their health, or to take advantage of the many recreational facilities — golfing, .fishing, swimming, boating and riding. Hot Springs is unique all right — even when DeSoto discovered the Indians' "Valley of Vapors" •a it wai known back in 1641.
