TWELVE EVENING TIMES. CUMBERLAND, MD., TUESDAY, FEBRUARY, 5, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker TAPPING ONTHE Fort Hill Plays Unbeaten Hubs Tonight Self-Slyled Diet Keeps Eddi$ Robinson In Shape If more major league baseball players were as practical as Eddie Robinson, they'd enhance their chances of staying longer in the "Big Time." Cognizant of the fact that baseball can provide a .lucrative livelihood, Eddie in- f" ~ tends to make hay while the sun shines. And to make hay, a fellow has to be in good physical condition. For this reason, the big handsome first baseman of the Chicago White Sox has put himself on a voluntary "Fat Man's Diet" .during the off-season. Almost ail baseball players are heavy eaters and they have a tendency •to • increase their waist lines .when their active physical drfv- 'ing ends in October. In case you didn't notice Eddie at Sunday night's Dapper Dan. dinner at the Knights of Columbus Plome. the slugging star of the White Sox was a bit "choosey 1 ; in the food he selected. Robinson, in a tete-a-tete later in his hotel room, revealed the "Don'ts" of his self-styled winter diet sheet. "I don't use butter on my bread, I don't use ft-eam or sugar in my coffee and I don't eat desserts," Eddie declared. He eats everything else, Including potatoes in small quantities. The success of the diet is shown on the scales, Robbie checking in at 215 pounds, the same weight he totes on his six- foot, two-inch frame during the American League season. And despite Eddie's winter Job with the Gibson Distilling Company requiring him to make the banquet circuit, there is no fluctuation of avoirdupois. Robinson announced he had Valley Lead At Stake In Keyser Game Tornado Undefeated In Cage Conference; Petersburg Has 8-1 is in is to come to terms with the White Sox early last week when he was in Cumberland, His salary is reported to be $25,000, getting what General Manager Prank Lane called a substantial hike due to a good season last year. Eddie figures that you can't have a good diamond year at the plate, if you've had a better off-season at the dinner plate. It takes too long to get back into shape. Last season, Eddie belted 25 homers for the "Cinderella" White Sox, and with a flying start he could better that figure in 1952. Eddie belted one of the longest homers ever hit in Baltimore five years ago while performing for the Orioles, but that wasn't his longest. His most distant swat, he said, was last year when he caught hold of one of A! Widmar's sliders and drove it all the way over the stands in.Chicago. The right-field foul 'line 352 feet from home plate Comiskey Park and Eddie only the third player ever clear the double-decked structure with a home run blast and the first to do it in the past decade. Ted Williams and the incomparable Babe Ruth were the only other players to clear the stands. "That homer gave biggest thrill and I could hardly believe it when I saw it leaving the park," Eddie fondly recalls. 'Mighty MoV Pupa Makes Hit At Testimonial Joe Wilkofsky, of Ellwood City, Pa., who made the trip to Cumberland with Al Abrams' Pittsburgh party for the local Dapper Dan affair, got a big kick out of the testimonial in West Natrona, Pa., Saturday night for Ed "Mighty Mo" Modzelewskl and his brother, "Little Mo." "Mighty Mo'," who passed up his mother's family dinner Sun•day afternoon to attend the lofal affair here for the Crippled Children, had a look of pride on his face as Abrams told the Natrona story of "Papa" Mo at the Cumberland dinner. "Papa Mo," a small man in comparison with his giant sons, came to this country from Po. land years ago, but never could ^ Fort Hill High School basket- jball Sentinels will be out to atone jfor one of their three defeats of the 'season when they journey to Hagers- jtown tonight to battle the 'undefeated Hubs of Mel Henry. hTe Maroons scored a 39-35 victory here in December in Fort Hill's i opening game of the campaign. quite master the English language. However, Abrams calls the little speech he made at Natrona as the most eloquent and touching he has ever heard. He stood beaming before the microphone a full minute before he blurted out: "Me happy man. Me happy and I thank you because you honor my two good boys." Mama Mo drew a laugh when (Contniued on Page 13) Shirt-sleeve comfort... Jours In Plateau*, the Soft with the Weightless Feal.. What's all the excitement about? Come on down and see!

It was only the Bullets' second triumph in their last 17 outings.

Kentucky Still Leading Quint In Press Poll NEW YORK— (/?}— Kentucky, riding the crest of a 12-game winning streak, enjoys top billing in the Associated Press basketball poll for the second straight week today but Kansas State and Illinois are hard on the Wildcats' heels. The Wildcats remained at the head of the parade on the strength of victories over Vanderbilt, Ash"burn and Notre Dame within a six- day span. They added another triumph after the polls closed by trouncing Tulane, 103-54, last night. Kentucky, boasting a 18-2 record, accumulated 811 points including 41 first-place votes to nose out the cream of the midwest. Kansas State Second Kansas State's Wildcats came home second with 751 points including 23 first-place ballots to hold second place.

Jim Norris. president of the International Boxing Club, said he would be interested if Charles was willing to let Walcott out of his contract to give Ezzard first crack at the title. But Charles wasn't willing. In Pittsburgh, Charles' manager, Jake Mintz, said "The only thing we are interested in is for Walcott to fulfil! the contract he has with us. "All we want is for Jim Norris to announce' the date and place for Walcott to meet Charles." After Bpcchicchio proposed the Marciano fight yesterday, Norris phoned the Charles group in Pittsburgh and invited them to come to Miami for a meeting. Mintz replied he wasn't interested in any meeting. Walcott won the title by knocb- ing out Charles in Pittsburgh last July. He says he hasn't made a dime off title and wants more opportunity to cash in before giving Charles his return fight.

Only four points separated the two fighters on the total of three official cards. Referee Eddie Coachman voted for Dykes, the 22-year-old underdog who has been adopted by Miami as a. local favorite. Coachman had the rangy Texan on top Walcott but that something had ta 1 be worked out that would satisfy Charles, too. "I think a Walcott-Charles match in Marcli or April, with the winner meeting Marciano in June, would ba ideal," the IBC chief said. Frostburg Pony Circuit Elects David J.

Ladislad Nodarse, imported from Havana to judge the championship bout, put the Keed over the top with his 145-139 ballot. Miami uses a. point scoring system by which the winner of a round receives ten points and the loser anywhere from nine to six. If it's an even round, each gets ton points. The AP card gave it to Gavilan. 144-142. On a round basis, the AP showed Gavilan the winner 7-5 with three even. The three even rounds could have gone either way without much trouble.
