With the unexpected change in the opening elate forcing him to rubh his practice sessions considerably, Coach Fisher liuckled down on his charges in yesterday's drill period in an effort to give his squad the benefit of every minutes practice possible. . The Pops toiled through Ion? hours of roueh scrimmage at their Blythcvlllc Country Club training camp yesterday and will work even harder today, which probably will be their last full scrimmage before game time Thursday night.

However, in Hi,; later minuter of the: session, Coach Fisher divided his' squad Into two teams f«r a gruelling "head knock- inR'' scrimmage.

The runaway New York Yankees were treated to a sample of "the new" Feller's old hicks at Yankee Stadium last night when his relief pitching saved a 4 to 3 victory for Cleveland. Trailing by that score in the ninth inning, the Yankees, who need only eight wins to take the pennant, put men on first and third with none out against Bob Lemon. 'At this point, Feller ambled in from tlie bull pen and retired the side without a score. He got Bill Johnson on a pop-up.
