fl % I& &|v —THE BAYTOWN SUM, MONDAY, MAY 19, 1952 •>; Rain Doesn't Spring Drills GREELEY, Colo. —(U.E)— The six ;:•% By CARL LUNDQUIST NEW YORK (UP)— Bucky Harris can't tell any more who will be in his starting lineup until after he meets the morning train, but the little boss of the Washington Senators was making a fine bid for manager of the year honors today with players who have just come over from other clubs. The Senators were the American League's "best bet" to finish last in the pre-season calculations, but now it looks as if they not only could stay in the first division but battle some of the contenders right to the finish. Harris, whose proudest boast is that "I never finished last in 28 years as a manager in the big leagues," now has his Nats in second place and hustling for a chance to overtake the leading Cleveland Indians. The team appears to be much stronger than at the start of the season after deals in which he got outfielders Jackie Jensen and Archie Wilson, and pitcher Frank Shea from the Yankees, outfielder Jim Busby from the White Sox, and pitcher Lou Sleater and infielder Fred Marsh from the Browns. Sleater was his newest hero. The left bander had a sorry record INDIANAPOLIS —(&£)— A low- slung diesel-powered car of 'a •revolutionary type that was almost bumped fro.m the field two years ago Monday rated the coveted pole position in the 36th annual Memor- Sfop Races schools in the Rocky Mountain before No. i and^end??

Popular Freddie Agabashian, the eiender, curly-haired ' Californian with the big grin, grabbed the advantageous spot in the first row when he blazed around the famous brick and asphalt oval in record-shattering time just before the time trials ended Saturday. Despite a strong cross-wind, he urged the yellow and red oil burner through the four-lap, 10-mile test at an average speed of 138.010 miles an hour. His first lap was 139.104 MPH. Both times eclipsed the marks set by pint-sized Walter Faulkner of : Long Beach, Calif., last year of 136.874 MPH and • 138.122 MPH, respectively. Another, less speedy, diesel blazed the way for Agabashian's record-breaker two years" ago, barely squeezing into the field. However, the performance encouraged the Cummins Co. of Columbus, Ind., to build a new one. Agabashian never got above 135 MPH in the new car before Saturday's record-breaking dash. But he was confident before the trials that he could do better. Only seven cars qualified over the weekend, and Sunday was a complete loss when strong winds and rain cancelled the trials leaving 2fi positions open to a field of about 60. HEAR game while losing nine last "season. He lost his only game with them this year, but Harris still liked him and; thought he had a potential as a winner. In fact, Harris was willing to give up a steady veteran infielder like Cass Michaels to make the deal. In Sleater's first start Sunday, he . vindicated Bucky's judgment. Sleater pitched a solid tight-hitter to top White Sox ace Saul Rogovin in a duel. 2 to 1. Washington made both of its runs in the first inning en Jensen's single and steal, Mickey Yemen's double and Pete Runnell's single. Thereafter Sleater protected the margin. Chicago rebounded to win the second game, 6 to 4, breaking loose with four runs in the first inning on a pair of two-tally homers by Al Zarilla and Eddie Robinson. The slpit left Washington 2^ games behind Cleveland which also divided its doubleheader, winning a 6 to 0 decision behind Mike Garcia's nine-hit pitching aft^* Bobby Shant' of the A's took ihc opener, 2 to 0 with a three-hitter. The Browns topped the Yankees, 4 to 3, when Clint Courtney singled with the bases loaded in the ninth to give them their third straight triumph in the final inning. But the Yankees put on a home run spree to win the second game, S to 1. Boston topped Detroit, 7 to 4, on the margin of Vernon Stephens' three-run homer. The Dodgers moved half a game ahead of the idle Giants in the National by defeating the Cubs, 7 to 2, oh four hits, two by Preacher Roe, who won his fourth straight game. The Cardinals edged Philadelphia, 4 to 3, as Gerry Staley became the first hurler • in the majors to win seven games. The Pittsburgh-New York and Cincinnati-Boston double headers were rained out. REGARDED as'almost a certainty to win a berth with the United States Olympic swim team is Jacqueline (Jackie) Lavine, 23, of Chicago. One hundred yards free style champ three times, Jackie holds the American record for that distance. She's also won many 220 and 440-yard events.

He also placed second in .the trophy, dash -after losing a wheel on the last lap. A crowd of around 1500 saw plenty of action in the feature when Vic Bauche flipped his car on' the north turn. Fortunately, Bauche was not injured. The first heat also provided some excitement. Three drivers— Sandy Harris, Bill Griswald and Williams — were disqualified for cutting across the infield. However, Griswald and Williams came back to finish second and third, respectively, in the consolation steeplechase. :£he results: .First Heat—li Bob MJlner; 2) Quentin Steinman; 3) Sill Lang.
