Kellogg and Johnson are slated to start at defensive half- drove in two runs apiece in the amazing rally. Van Cuyk, whosp five-hit pitching was completely overshadowed by the ether events, was also the mightiest Dodger at bat, collecting four straight singles. That was astonishing in view of the fact that he had gotten only three previous hits in his major league career. Fie got two iii the first inning and in the third and fifth after he singled, Bobby Morgan followed each time with a homer.

Anger has turned him jnean- eyed, more so even than tho three jaw fractures he suffered in fights with Beau Jack, Ike Williams and Gavilan.

Forced to carry, out the bout, he raged up to ^Montreal to meet one Pierre Langlois, the Amateur Champion Billy Maxwell, PGA Champion Sam Snead; British Open Champion Max Faulkner and British Amateur Champion Richard D.
