(Wright's Studio) Walker Makes Big Career Of Beating Washington Nats By ED WILKS You might say Jerry Walker Is making a major league career out of beating Washington. The 20- year-old right-hander has a 3-0 record for his three stabs at the big-time with Baltimore — and each of those decisions was against the Senators. He got the third, his second of the season, Thursday night, blanking the Nats on three hits before Reno Bertoia's eight-inning home run, as the second place Orioles whipped Washington 10-1 and moved within two games of the idle Cleveland Indians. Only one other American League game was scheduled, and Detroit took that, 3-1 from Boston. Walker, a 6-1, 185-pound Okla homan, polished off the Senators with a five-hitter, walking two and striking out five. The Thursday night game was packed away before Walker gave up Bertoia's fourth homer. The Orioles, who have won four ol their last five, rapped 17 hits off four Washington pitchers, chasing Pete Ramos (3-3) in a five-run second inning triggered by Gu: Triandos' solo sixth homer. Bob Nieman and Al Pilarcik homered as the Birds hit tlxeir one-game scoring high of the season. Nieman's shot was a two-run blast and his 100th home run in the majors. Larry Doby drove home a pair of runs for the Tigers, getting the winner across while grounding out in a two-run sixth against Ike Delock, who had won three in a row. It was the last place Tigers' third success in four games under Manager Jimmy Dykes and right- hander Frank Lary (3-2) put it away for his third in a row.

Corky Made It On His Own Power CARLISLE, Pa. (AP)-"I guess I'm proudest of the fact I did it on my own." The remark was made tpday by Corky Kelly, the 19-year-old son; of a famous father whose heroic death guaranteed the future of his then infant son. On Wednesday Corky received news that he had earned appointment to West Point by passing stiff competitive examinations. He didn't have to put himsel to the test. His father was Capt. Colin P. Kelly Jr., the nation's first air hero of World War II. Seven days after Capt. Kelly was killed in action President Roosevelt paid an enduring tribute to the gallant pilot in a letter o the President of the UnKed States in 1956.

Kelly III—for. appointment as a cadet in the U.S. Military Academy at West Point." , Truman Celebrates NEW YORK (AP)-This is the day Harry S.
