THE CORSICANA, DAILY BUN, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, <945. — - SEVEN GOOB OLD DAYS ARE BACH ID BIG LEAGUE BASEBALL ONCE MORE DETROIT PLAYS TO M1L- LION, FELLER COMING BACK, SCRAP IN AMERICAN By JACK HAND A«*r>ciated Press Sport* Writer. The good old days are back in baseball with Detroit counting its firsti million paid admissions. Bobby Feller about to shed his navy blue for a Cleveland baseball suit and another knctck-down, drag- out finale looming in the American League. The league-leading Tigers beat Brooklyn to the punch by announcing their attendance had hit the jackpot at 1,020,492 yesterday but Brother Branch Rickey in Flatbush will be sounding the same tidings over the week end and the New York Giants also have a chance to do the trick. Feller's return to civilian life is expected to take place today with rapid Robert slated to take the nill Friday night against the Tigers in his first pro start since 1941. The rumor waves also have tt that Joe DiMaggio will soon rejoin the New York Yankees. Washington continues to amaze the fans with a complete reversal of last year’s form. It's about time somebody gave Ossie Bluege a hand for the job he's done on the Senators in transforming the "flop of 1944" into the surprise of the current campaign. Bluege Does Good Job. Bluege plugged a hole here and there, brought up a fine rookie in Outfielder George Binks. recovered Buddy Lewis from the air force and pepped up the mound corps to become a pennant factor. Lewis’ return can’t be given too much credit in the Nats’ success story for the former army campain is hitting .345 with 12 extra base hits included in his total of 38 and 14 rbis to his credit. He bashed a single, double and triple in yesterday’s 11-8 slugfcst over Cleveland az? the Senators pulled to within one full game of the front- running Tigers. Bobo Newsom did his best to help out Washington, essaying the iron man stunt against his old (Detroit mates but was rapped out of the box in both ends of the double bill. Joe Berry came in to save the opener for Philadelphia, 7 6 In 11 innings. But he couldn’t repeat when called again in the ninth of the second tilt after Newsom faded with the score tied and two men on base. Rudy York shot a single through short to break it up. 7 to 6, giving Reliefer George Caster his third successive win since joining the leaders. Yankees Come Alive. The New York Yankees continued to show signs of life after a miserable western jaunt, trouncing Chicago’s White Sox twice, 3-0, behind Red Ruffing, and 6-2 on a five hitter by A! Gettel with the help of Charley Keller’s first homer. St. Louis missed a chance to gain ground on the leaders hv splitting two with the Boston Red Sox. Nelson Potter gave the Brownies the opener, 2 to 1, although they collected only four blows off Otis Clark, but Randy Heflin beat them, 4-3, in a finale cut to five innings by rain. Cards Work on Cubs. The St. Louis Cardinals continued to chew away at Chicago’s shrinking National lead, slicing it to 5 1-2 games as the teams wound up their last eastern trip and headed for an important week-end meeting in Chicago. rharlev (The Red) Barrett, trim- TINY TOSSER 7~A CM<VCr£r TO tY v xx£A/A/AArr âP Nmnhmfvrm SPORT NOTES By PAUL MOURE • Daily Sun Sporta Editor CLEVELANB INDIANS WITH RBR FELLER MAY TARE HAND IN RACE CHICAGO. Aug. 22 (J*)—The Cleveland Indians, who have floundered around in the American League all season, losing game after game by one run, may be just about ready to get up and do something about this red-hot pennant race. The main reason, of course. is Bob Fr’iei . The major-league strike-out champion and 107-game winner in Cleveland before he went to the na\y aimost four years ago expects to be discharged today. He may be back on the firing line Friday night when the Indians meet the league leading Detroit Tigers in Cleveland. What his return can do to the pennan: race isn’t hard to discern by a lock at the standings. Cleveland is in fifth place today, seven and a na’f games behind Detroit. They Irue 41 games left to play. Feller Ins been pitching regularly for the Great Lakes Naval Training Station team, which he managed this year, and a lot of it has been against major league and class A A teams. The fireball ar tist who went to Cleveland as a hieli s.’hoo! bcv has been mowing down baiters as he did before 1941 and without even attempting to use the rpeed he thought necessary four years ago. While Feller hardly could pitch Cleveland to a pennant, his return could do a lot to upset the contenders, and make the Indians the real giant killers of the league.

RECONVERSION CONTINUED FROM FIRST PAGE landlords instead of being forced to take any thing. OPA indicated meat points would he reduced, beginning next month. Agriculture Secretary Anderson, already has said meat rationing w*ould end soon. To Scrap Controls WPB said it would scrap its complicated network of controls over allocating materials and setting up prioritites bv the end of September. So—By Oct. 1 “CMP”- the con- i trolled materials plan—goes over- j board. This was the government s ¡control over steel, copper and al- j uminum. I The army, navy and civilian I agencies—under CMP got rations of metal. In turn they rationed tt I to contractors, the contractors to j subcontractors and so on. j Also to be dropped will be the ! whole series of priority ratings — j AA 1, A A-2, A A-3 and AA-4. ( Replacing them will be a simp- i ler system, much reduced. Producers for military requirements will get an “MM” rating. Then there will be a junior rating called “CC.” Junior Rating WPB said the junior rating will be used sparingly. A company can get tt to break a serious reeonver i sion bottleneck In materials or j equipment But otherwise non-military pro duction will get no help through priorities, generally. It will be a free scramble. The government told businessmen to build all the new factories, plants and addititons they could. Controls on building were taken j off but the government still kept ) controls on some materials, like : lumber. WPB Chairman J. A. Krug said the tight supply situation In lumber and other building materials - should ease off soon as military demands slacken and more men re avilabl« to work.
