THE NEWS--NEWPORT, E. i., WEDNESDAY, JULY is, 1952 Trouble Ahead It might be noted that at this time, a trifle after the middle of July, many, baseball owners see signs of financial trouble on beyond. -Part of this is due to a soggy, rainy spring. But .the rest in involved with the one-sided races that now prevail, especially in the National League. A day or two ago we looked over the six trailing clubs and found them 115 games out of pennant reach. This is an average of some 19 games in the quicksands, as far as any flag dreams are concerned. Outside of the Dodgers and Giants, only the Cardinals have been playing consistently good ball for some weeks. There is a vague, faint hope that condi- tiona may reach a happier turn if some of the six move up and the two leaders fall back. This may take place in one or two instances, but it isn't likely to bring about any prevailing happier condition. When six teams out of eight average 19 games out of the running at midseason, the league is badly lopsided. It Isn't too much trouble to get by when you have four teams in the running and only four out. But with two teams in the big hunt and six lost by the wayside, you face trouble. The American League Isn't nearly so bad. Up to the All-Star game, the A. L. had five teams still in the race with only the Athletics, Browns and Tigers still living in the wilderness, far from the land of milk and honey. Disregarding the Yankees, White Sox and Indians, the showing made by the Senators and Red Sox is extremely good. It may be there Is no strong team In the American Circuit. But the facts are that many more citizens are warmed up around the league, figuring they have at least a chance to win. It has been said that "hope springs eternal in the baseball breast, only to die out around June or July." This is true of the National League. It isn't true yet of the American, although a fair amount of collapsing can start at almost any given moment. Watching Later On The last six American Leagu e teams were only 61 games away from the flag, an average of 10, against the National's 19. The big shock in the National League was the downfall of the Phillies. They were supposed to be people with money in the bank last April. But in spite of many good ballplayers and at least three good pitchers, two of them stars, their headway has been on the morbid or sombre side. From now out the financial case for Boston, Pittsburgh and · Clncinnatrlooks moth-eaten. It doesn't look any too happy for Chicago and Philadelphia either, unless they start picking up new steam.. These rather melancholy details will have a sure effect on several of the players' demands or requests, especially where such arc hooked up with finance. Few magnates are looking through rose- colored glasses these days, with a dry, hot summer on ahead and only a few of the 16 clubs still in the two races. It is easy enough to understand why the bonus system is under hravy fire. Tom Yawkey and one or two others may be able to invest $475,000 in unknown bushers or teen-age phenoms who may never see even good minir-league action. But most of them can't. The Phillies have come out of this bon us entanglement fairly well, but they are still in trouble. I undestand several of these bonus phenoms can play class B baseball. Although It is a worthy idea, if you have the cash, since it shows the desperation to win, it doesn't make any sense. But who knows how to stop it?

STARRING FOR THE SUNSET LEADING KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS--Six K. of C. players who have contributed heavily to the Knights' fine 13-3 record are, left to right--Marine Stanley Hot, a pitcher; Ossie Bacon, infielder; Fred Thornton, infielder, who also has filled in as a catcher, and in second row--Jim "Red" MoColl, third base; Warren Karoli, second base, and Bernie Kane, left field. Kane made a fine running catch to start a double play when the Knights routed USS Yosemite, 17-6, Tuesday. . --(Daily News Photo). Johann Crashes Homer As Sunset League Leading Knights Whale Yosemite Sunset League Standing SPORTS ROUNDUP By Gayle Talbot Talbert's Choice Surprises NEW YORK UP--Since Bill Talbert has been appointed captain of our Davis Cup team for the first round matches against Japan in Cincinnati starting 10 days hence, we'd like to see him stay as leader of the squad. The results of this match won't-or at least, shouldn't--have any- thinR to do with Talbert's tenure. If we lose it, we ought to burn all our rackets. Just why Talbert was chosen strikes us as somewhat of a mystery in view of the fact that one of the most powerful men in the United States tennis picture told us at the National Indoor Championships last winter that he was pretty annoyed at Longpants Bill. This gentleman naturally will remain nameless in the interests of harmony, but his gripe against Bill stemmed back to last summer and even the summer before. It seems that the top brass of the United States Lawn Tennis Association, with surprising foresight come to think of it, took due note that young Tony Trabert showed signs of becoming one of the best doubles players in the country, but needed some coaching. Talbert was the logical candidate because (1) he was an old-timer in the tennis wars and (2) he was-BASEBALL SUNSET LEAGUE Cnrdtnrs Field TONIGHT--8P.M. VSS Caacnde T».

So he was taken aside and told to get busy with Trabert and show the youngster the ropes. "And what do you think Talbert did?" asked our bigwig. "No idea," we assured him. "He spent most of his nights at parties and was not in the proper shape to take Trabert under his wing. It caused us considerable distress. We were very annoyed at Billy." So that's how Talbert got in bad with at least one official who throws a lot of weight around in the tennis picture. Perhaps Talbert was chosen because he's an easy going bloke who doesn't take himself too seriously. This is a switch from last year when Frank Shields installed an "austerity" program something like Eddie Sawyer, deposed manager of the Phillies. Now they're both gone. Newporter Wins R. I. Women's League Tourney Miss Ruth Eddy won Class A in the Rhode Island Women's League tournament Tuesday at the Middletown club. She scored a 72 net ta finish 10 strokes ahead of runner-up Mrs. C. George Taylor of Sakonnet in Class A. Wanumetonomy swept all three first places in Class B. Mrs. Robert L. Vaughn, the winner, had a 75; Mrs. Irving Rosenthal 78 and Mrs. James C. Colton 81. Mrs. Everett Rosenthal tallied a 73 to win Class C. Mrs. Murray Goldin (75) was second and M_rs. H. A. Rosenquist of Warwick third with 78. First round matches in the Wan- umetonomy women's League tournament will be played Thursday. Miss Eddy, medalist with an 87, will play Mrs. Abner Slocum. Other matches pit Mrs. Irving Rosenthal against Mrs. Edward Dunn and Mrs. Robert Vaughn against Mrs. Henry Packer. Byes were drawn by Mrs. James Colton, Mrs. Arthur Kilroy, Mrs. Murray Goldin, Mrs. Everett Rosenthal and Mrs. John Hattub. BRODOWSKTS PHYSICAL OFF BOSTON tff--Dick Brodowski, the Boston Red Sox 19-year-old rookie pitcher, last night was informed by his Bayonne, N. J., draft board that his physical examination had been postponed temporarily. Brodowski, who had been ordered to appear before the board today, was notified of its change of plans before he started warming up to oppose the Chicago White Sox. Np new date baa been set.

Heffernan stole four of Casey's nine bases and Moran matched Johann's three runs driven across. Both sides were charged with six errors, but the Yo-Yo was guilty of nine wild pitches and passed balls, and its pitcher, Brida, walked 13. Imprudent Yosemite base running erased several potential runs. Drury was touched for 12 hits in the long-winded game which missed the three hour mark by 15 minutes. Charley Brown slammed hits, but Drury fanned The Knights led, 4-3, when they touched off a clinching four-run explosion in the last of the fourth.

Launches Olympic Competition Today; Russia Extended In Soccer HELSINKI UH--Avery Brundage of Chicago was elected president of the International Olympic Committee today. The election was the major order of business today. The question of whether the I. O. C. will recognize Communist China or Nationalist China was put over until tomorrow. HELSINKI (Jfi -- Uncle Sam's star-spangled forces will taste 1952 Olympic competition tonight for the first time but their chances of success are far from bright. The first U. S. contingent to flex its muscles will be the soccer team. It meets the very good Italian 11 at Tampere, 100 miles up country from Helsinki, in- a qualifying match. · Soccer never has been a strong point in American sports competition. Although the Olympics don't open officially for another three days, competition has been going on since Monday. Two qualifying rounds of basketball have been completed. The first round of field hockey and the first soccer matches were played last night. Field hockey is the only sport in which the United States is not represented. The U. S. got a free pass in basketball. Austrlans, Swiss Win In the field hockey tournament. Austria beat Switzerland 2-1, and Belgium.downed Finland, 6-0. Israel, Turkey and Switzerland were eliminated from Olympic basketball competition yesterday when each was beaten for the second time in a pre-Games round- robin tournament. Final scores were: Canada 72, Romania 51; Belgium 59, Switzerland 49; Greece 54, Israel 52; Italy 49, Turkey ^37. The United States stands a better chance today of scoring a success in the conference halls than it does on the playing fields. The International Olympic Committee opens its threo»day general meeting with plans to elect a new president to succeed J. Sigfrid Ed- stroem of Sweden, who is retiring. Top man in the race is Avery Brundage, the Chicago hotel executive who heads the United States Olympic Committee. Brundage is vice president of the IOC. .But even in this race the U. S. faces competition. A number of the 71 nations which belong to the IOC are cool to the idea of an American president. A compromise candidate may be Lord David Burghley of Great Britain, a former Olympic athletic star. The last big contingent of the powerful Russian Olympic team arrives late this afternoon -- 10 railroad carloads including wrestlers, boxers and weightlifters. More than 250 Russians came in last Saturday in a plush-lined train from Leningrad. The Russians probably will be happy to see the reinforcements after their first venture into Olympic competition last night. The highly touted Red Army soccer toam from Moscow had to come from behind in an overtime period to put down neighboring Bulgaria, 2 to 1. The soccer matches are played on a one-loss-and- you're-out plan and the Soviets had been labeled favorites for the Olympic gold medal. Crowfl For Bulgarians The crowd of 12,000 at Kotka, a provincial city only 32 miles from the Russian border, was solidly for the Bulgarians. Joining Bulgaria on the sidelines were India, Romania, France and Greece, who were beaten in order by Yugoslavia, Hungary, Poland and Denmark. The Yugoslavs looked the best of the bunch. Fear for the condition of Mai Whitfield, the lean American Negro, was virtually removed when he breezed through 660 yards in 1:25.5. His teammate, John Barnes, made the same time. This caused Marcel Hansene, French sports writer who was third in the 800 meters at London in 1948, to predict Whitfield and Barnes would run first and second here in the 800, in which Whitfield is defending champion. Seeded Players Win At Western, Pennsylvania Net INDIANAPOLIS Iff)--Second-day play moved along as expected in the Western tennis tournament yesterday with no major upsets. Art Larsen, national clay courts titlist, swept two matches in the afternoon. He ousted Lyman Combs, of Indianapolis, 6-0, 6-1, and then eliminated John Devoe, of Indianapolis, 6-1, 6-1. Top-seeded Dick Savitt, of Orange, N. J., breezed by Stan Malless, of Indianapolis, 6-2, 6-1. PHILADELPHIA UB--Vic Seixas, of Philadelphia, ranked the No. 1 player in the United States, moved into round three at suburban Merion Cricket Club yesterday in the Pennsylvania State tennis Dropo Ties Consecutive Hit Record; Gemert's Homers Win For Red Sox i Wait Dropo By RALPH RODEN Associated Press Sporta Writer Walt Dropo, the a m i a b l e "Moose" from Mooseup, Conn., once again is striking fear into · the hearts of \ A m e r i ' c a n j League pitchers. Dropo, who has experienced more ups and downs t h a n a roller coaster in his bid for major league stardom, h a s been the hottest batter i n t h e league since Independence Day. The husky first baseman of the Detroit Tigers shunted the pennant' races to the sidelines last night by tying a rare major .league record -- 12 consecutive hits. Pinky Higgins set the record in 1938 with the Boston Red Sox and Dropo is the first to equal' the mark. Dropo missed a chance to break the record when he fouled out in the seventh inning of the second game of a twi-rilght doubleheader against the Senators in Washington. The 28-year-old slugger .then singled home two runs in the ninth. Despite Dropo's lusty hitting the tail-end Tigers dropped both ends of the twin-bill to Washington, 8-2 and 9-8. Yanks Lead Cut Meanwhile, the Cleveland Indians reduced the Yanks' lead to 2Mi games by downing the Bombers, 7-3, at Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox took over third place from Chicago by beating the White Sox, 7-5, and the Philadelphia Athletics swept a twi-night twin-bill from St. Louis, 7-6 and 11-3. In the National League, the second-place New York Giants climbed to within five games of Brooklyn's pace-setting Dodgers by turning back the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-3. The Dodgers' game with Cincinnati was rained out. Jn other games, the Philadelphia Phillies trounced Pittsburgh, 10-3, and the Boston Braves snowed under the Chicago Cubs, 10-3, in the majors' only day game. Early Wynn, backed by a nine- hit attack that included home runs by Harry Simpson and Luke Easier, coasted to his 10th victory in the opener of the important five game series at Yankee Stadium. Home runs by Yogi Berra, Joe Collins and Mickey Mantle ac- counted for''all of the Yanks' runs but by the time the New Yorkers found the range the Indians were enjoying a 7-0 lead. " A pair of successive homers by rookie first baseman Dick Gern- «rt, which gave hirn a total of four for as many games, and a circuit clout by George Kell accounted for all of the runs as the Red Sox took over third place from the White Sox. Dick Brodowski, the Red Sox' 19-year-old flinger, drew credit for the win, thanks to a fine relief performance by Al Benton. Btod- owski gave the White Sox their first two runs by dropping a Ger- ert throw while covering first base with two out and the sacks loaded in the fifth inning. Then, before Benton took over with one out in the seventh, Minnie Minoso lashed Brodowski for a three-run homer. The A's pulled the opener out ol the fire from the Browns with a six-run ninth-inning rally that was climaxed by a grand-slam homer by Eddie Joost. Joost's winning blast came at the expense of Satchel Paige. Newsom Goes Distance Venerable Bo Bo Newsom went the distance in the second game and scattered 10 hits. Lefty Dave Koslo, although relieved in the sixth by relief ace Hoyt Wilhelm, gained credit for his 12th straight victory over the Cardinals since mid-season of 1950. The Giant veteran, hitless prior to the game, batted in two runs or a double and single and scored once. Curt Simmons breezed to his ninth v i c t o r y in beating the Pirates. Rookie Mel Clark's grand- slam homer in the third, his first of the season, staked Simmons to a 4-0 lead and the Phils sewed it up with three more in the fifth against Howie Pollet. The Braves clicked off their fifth straight victory by lambasting the Cubs, 10-3, in Chicago, to give Jim Wilson his eighth pitching triumph. The Cubs, however, out-hit the Tribesmen by a 15-8 rrfargin but the contest was decided in the fifth inning when the Braves totaled six runs on two singles, five bases on balls, a sacrifice and two errors by shortstop Roy Shalley. One of the Boston hits was Walker Cooper's fourth homer of the season, lashed in the fourth inning after Sid Gordon drew a base on balls.

SPORTS IN THE 53ro0 DesLant Destroyers' Coach "Stu" Stewart is pleased with the Cardines Field set-up and feels that the practice games in Newport will help his club in the Atlantic Fleet championship next month at Norfolk. His only suggestion for improving Cardines Field is to have the infield, hardened, by the blistering sun, dragged, especially before the second game of a doubleheader. In commenting on DesLant's one- sided victories, Stewart said that "we're not as good as our scores show." He is a little disapointed at the grade of competition, figuring that the Newport clubs by hustling could make a better showing. Part of the local weakness has been lack of pitching. The best pitchers are saved for Sunset League games. For instance, County Food Mart pitched Mike Boissoneau, an infielder, and USS Cascade used Piccolo, a utility player, who did not do too badly. Outside of the shut out, fired by Quonset'e Corcoran, the best pitching DesLant looked at what was offered by the Bailey's "Rick" Col- ,ontuano, who allowed no runs after the second inning. Twilight Lea'gue leader Bove- Chevrolct is going to take on the DesLant team next Sunday at Cardines Field. Incidentally, that important "Twi" game, USS Wood vs. Bovc will be contested under lights July 29 at Cardines Field. * * * * Joe Johann, Knights of Columbus' first baseman, and Bob LaPorte, USS Vulcan outfielder, both noted for slugging, startled the op- postion and Sunset League fans by makng clean swipes of home in recent games. Both were lead men in a triple steal, a baseball thrill which compares to a grand slam homer. LaPorte's steal against USS Arcadia was a game-winner, for the Vulcan won by one run, 6-5. Johann's dash was- agains County Food. Joe made a couple of test runs half-way down the third base line to measure Joe Borges' dc- libcrate wind-up before setting sail. The play wasn't even close because Johann was off to a good start. * * * * Newark's Vin Farrell, colorful basketball arbiter, who works the Eastern States Catholic tournament games in Newport, has a flair for breaking into print.
