Bureau of Mines synthetic fuels plant tn Louisiana, Mo., a ton of coal yields 126 gallons of gasoline and more thai. 40 gallons of other liquid fuels, plus an assortment of chemicals. ny JOE TtEIHLER NF,W YORK OR—Enos (Country) Slaughter, veteran outfield star of the St. Louis Cardinals, was selected yesterday as the player who made the greatest'comeback of the 1D52 baseball season. The slugging country boy from North Carolina, generally regard- pel ns one of Iho game's fiercest competitors, captured the Associated Ifiress "Comehack-of-the- Year" award handily, receiving 26 of the Gl votes cast by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Thirteen other candidates were nominated but no/te proved any serious threat to the rollicking Hedblrd. Luke F.aster of Cleveland came second with 11 votes. It's easy to see why the experts voted for Slaughter, the original perpetual motion kid, who never walks when he can run to the nearest exl, or base. The balding flychnser was considered all washed up last April, alter hilling a. lowly .281 In 123 sanies In 1351. But he astounded the critics by not only participating in 140 contests but hilling nt an even .300 clip. That was not nil. The husky Carolinian, whc will be 37 next April, batted In 101 runs ru«l swatted 40 extra base hits including 11 home runs, 12 triples and 17 doubles. The Cardinals, off to a poor start, caght wflre In mid-season and finished a strong third. They iilnycd the best ball in the league in the second half of the season, principally because of Slaughter's hoi bat that picked up 37 IlBIs and seven home runs over the previous season. Durable Enos became « Cardinal back In 1938 and has been a star ever since. Oldest regular in the major leagues. Slaughter still Is Ihe take charge guy of his club. His spirit, always fierce and flam- Ing has not waned a bit desplta his 15 years In the big leagues.
