So far he has shown no signs of sagging. Roberts hung up his 14th victory last night with a five-hitter against the St. Louis Cards, 4-2. He took a 27-inning scoreless string into the game and carried it, to 32 and two- thirds before Enos Slaughter h i t two-run homer in the sixth inning It was a new season high of shutout pitching.

The victory was most important for th« Phils, opening a five-game »«t with the ever-dangerous Cardinals. Eddie Sawyer's hustling kids, winning 16 of their last 22 games, now boast a three-game lead over Boston. Warren Spahn kepi the Boston Braves in second place with his 14th Kjn, i four-hitter over Chicago. 10- ^I'he lefthander shut out the Cubs until the ninth when they bunched two hits with two walks for their only runs. Spahn also chipped with two hits, Brooklyn, like Boston, moving ftl a seyen-out-of-eight pace, scorched Cincinnati, 1-1, for Don Newcombe's llth win.

With one out, Raschi doubled and took third on Gene woodling's -single. Raschi was out at the plate on an attempted squeeze play but Hank Bauer singled off Joe Gordon's glove, scoring Woodling with the lone run.

W)—A radio sjiorls editor, Harold (Bus) Saidt of station WBUD at Trenton, N. J., begs leave to refuse the contention of President. Ford Prick of the National League that broadcasts of big league games are killing off the smaller minors. Perhaps refute is not the precise word we are groping -for. What Saidt actuaMy says Is that Frick "Is talking through his hat," and he submits what he considers strong evidence to prove It. He seems Inclined to blame television for the increasing mortality among the little fellows. Before, however, we go more fully into Saidt's rebutal of Frlck's theory, it might be a good spot to haul in yet another baseball scholar, namely. Al Schacht. the noted diamond clown. Al troups through the deepest bushes with his act, and he observes as he goes. "There's just too many minor leagues," Al says. "There's a lot of little two-gas station towns trying to support a professional team this year that never had a chance. Sure they're foldin'." "Never Been Proved" Nothing complex about that. But let us listen to our radio man: "Nowhere," writes Saidt, "has It ever been proved that the broadcasting of baseball by radio hurt box office gates. To the contrary. most major and minor league magnates will go to any lengths to get their games on the air. The same can be said for broadcasting major league baseball in minor league areas. "Mr. Frick says that some people lave television confused with radio That may be so, too, but telecast- ng major league baseball in minor eague cities creates a far greater peril than broadcasting the same games in the same minor league cities. "Attendance In the Interstate :.eague has been hard hit, but more by television than by radio. To prove that radio is not to blame the directors of the York, Pa., team lust gave their local radio station the right to carry major league lames in that area. They had wlth- leld the right for years and now had become convinced that broadcasting major league games in York not only would not hurt their loca attendance but actually would increase it by creating interest in th< game itself. "The Interstate League is havinp poor box office year, but it I not in danger of folding. If Ford Prick's claims were tme, this lea sue would have folded years ago because every city Is subject to ma jor league broadcasts and was long before the majors adopted thoii present policy of stauration broad casts around the country. Blames Television "The truth is that Mr. Frick': claimr, are entirely false. Radii broadcasting built new friends fo the gnme and gave it Its greates boost. "It long has been evident that rn dio develops an appetite to see base ball live, where television satisfie the appetite. "In the city of Trenton Mr. Wil liam B. McKechnie, Jr., busines. manager ol the Trenton Giants will be the first to admit tha radio has helped his job of promot ing the Trenton club. We are cer tain he would protest any move t slash major league broadcasts in th Trenton area. "We do not intend to carry an malice townrrt television but seems evident that, by it.s very na ture, television will prove harnifu if not to the major leagues them selves then certainly to minor lea gucs in major league areas."

From a political standpoint, this night have led to a Democratic de- cnt. The President apparently wants o stick to this 'way-out-in-front eadershlp, as a long-range proposl- ion. He would probably never admit for a second that he had aban- loned any of his Fair Deal. In leallng with the Korean war sltua- lon. however, the President Is up against another problem In practl- al politics. The election is not too far away. Congressional and senatorial candidates are jittery about what the war may do to them. In all but he traditionally solid southern Democratic or northern Republican distrlcls. The President naturally feels that le must have Democratic ma]orl- ics In both houses of the next Congress. So he propom a safe middle-of-the-road program. Actually, the President Is being attacked from both sides of this road. Republican House leader Joe tfnrlln of Massachusetts and Senator Taft of Ohio feel that the President's defense program Is too tough. Followers of Bernard Bnruch, who wants stand-by price control and rationing legislation enacted now, feel that the President's program Is too soft. Democrats Have Lang Memories There arc other good, practical political arguments for not advocating price and rationing controls at this time. In e first place, there Is no machinery set up to administer and enforce them. In the second place. Democrats may well remember that one of the principal reasons they lost control of Congress In 1946 was the unpopularity of OP A. In the President's midyear economic report sent lo Congress last week, sill! another line of reasoning Is advanced. It is based on a fear that overexpanslon of dtfensc production now would lead to a >500 State Semi-Pro Meet in Finals CAMDEN, Ark., Aug. 5.

And too muc Inflation'' would Inevitably be fo! lowed by collapae. The remembrance of even th slight economic decline of the pas 12 months, when unemploymen rose to 4,000,000. still seems to haun some Washington economls an political planners. What the President therefor proposes Is a program that will Uk up the reported 5 per cent alack t Industrial production, further bull up productive capacity for a greate defense effort at a later time, an absorb the lurplus manpower no available to u to cut down un employment to one million. In other words, this looks some thing like a defense effort to pro duce full employment and not m more—till after election. It Is ob vlously only a slop-gap moblllia tlon program. The President himself says tha he will ask for further tax Increase after the election. A fair bet wou be that he will ask for bigger defense appropriations and tougher economic controls, too.- Manila's Jaycees hung a 10-J eking on the Number Nine Card- nals in a game played under the ights of Manila's park last night.
