III. I- .1 TOMMY HOLMES Scoffer Shot at The Sport Scene THE WAYWARD PRESS An implausible story of assault and battery out in the open air was bolstered by published pictures of the victim lying on his bed of pain and hysterical comments from alleged eyewitnesses who may or may not have been irresponsible. The tale was embellished by the news services with fresh dispatches every hour on the hour. By the time the late city editions of the tabloids reached the streets the impeding fall of Shanghai had been crowded off page one. One thing seemed clear enough to Commissioner Happy Chandler. What sounded at the start like the greatest outrage since the invasion of Poland rated a thorough investigation. As baseball's policeman, Chandler had another concernfear that horror in Harlem would generate racial friction that might explode in an even more serious situation. The safest way to avoid that seemed to be to put Leo Durocher on ice, so to speak, pending the hearing. No sooner had Durocher's suspension been announced than the case against him began to weaken. The alleged victim was discharged from the hospital, where no evidence of injury could be found. His original lawyer withdrew from the case. Those early witnesses appeared to evaporate and from a hundred other quarters the veracity of the original version was assailed. The journalistic knights were in the saddle and riding too fast to come to an immediate stop. Without even slackening speed they veered to attack a new villain Chandler. What kind of Baseball Commissioner would do such an urn American thing as suspend Durocher without a hearing? Bv inference at least, they charged Chandler with stupidity for paying any attention to the things he had read. Durocher, who has managed to behave with reasonable dignity throughout this latest crisis, is the only one involved who doesn't look a little bit silly. He'll probably come out of it okay. Barring fresh and unexpected developments, this is the greatest break Leo has had in years in his personal public relations. THE ROCK'S OWN DOUGH Minute interview with Jack Healey, co-manager of Rocky Graziano: "The Rock started training at Gleeson's up at Greenwood Lake last week and, on Wednesday, we'll have him out at that Illinois Boxing Commission meeting to plead for reinstatement. If that is granted we'll want to fight somebody like Chuck Taylor around 'Chicago in June. We're not interested in a title fight with Cerdan that early but we may be by September. How serious is Rocky about his comeback? Weil, It cost $7,200 of his own dough to pay off that Oakland promoter. He borrowed on one of his annuities to square the rap that caused his N. B. A. suspension. Neither Irving Cohen nor I would do it for him": First, we couldn't afford it and, second, we wouldn't, gamble that kind of money on his good intentions. But when he put the dough up himself he convinced us that he'll really try to get in shape." GREETINGS, ETC. Paulino Uzcudun, the under-slung Basque who was a ranking heavyweight 13 years ago, will be half a century old tomorrow. Last I heard of Paulino, he was a mountain trooper for Franco's forces in the Spanish Civil War. . . . Tomorrow is also the 29th birthday of Sugar Ray Robinson, the elusive welterweight champion of the world. . . . Elmer Layden, fullback of the Four Horsemen assembled by Knute Rockne and immortalized by Grantland Rice, will be 46 Wednesday. . . . Friday is the 56th birthday of Lou Little, Columbia's football master mind, the 34th birthday of Red Cochrane, former welterweight champion, and the 32d birthday of Mike McCor-mick, the youthful dean of the Dodger team. THE STORY OF LAZARUS Speaking of Mike Mc-Cormick. . . . He's a native of Angel's Camp, Cal. That's in Calaveras Co., made famous by Mark Twain's story of the jumping frog. The annual Pioneer celebration at Angel's Camp takes the form of a Jumping Frog Festival, with betting, cowboy parades, six-gun fire and other appropriate fiontier sidelights. I read last week that they hope to have a most unusual entry in this year's festival, which starts May 13. That's Lazarus, so named by scientists who discovered him in a Yosemite Park glacier. These same scientists hope to gradually thaw out the big croaker, bring him back to life with shots of benzedrine and maybe win the big prize. Since the age of Lazarus is roughly estimated at 12 centuries, he'll be the oldest competitor in the history of American sport if and when. SCORES TWO ACES ON SAME HOLE Pittsburgh, May 2 (U.R) Playing a morning round of golf, Elliot C. Stauffer teed off on the ISA-yard 16th hole yesterday with a No. 6 iron. The ball rolled into the cup for a hole-in-one. Playing another round in the afternoon, he teed off on the 16th with a No. 6 iron again. The ball rolled into the cup for another hole-in-one.

In addition, Southpaw Tom my Byrne was left behind along with the Clipper because of a sinus condition which re quires immediate treatment. Charley Keller, who pulled a muscle in his right side while taking batting practice recently, will be on the train but it is doubtful that he will see action for some time. Yankee officials were hoping that DiMaggio would be able to rejoin the club when it returns to the Stadium on May 17. Re cent X-rays of Joe's heel have been encouraging, a spokesman said, but he will stay in New York for further treatment. The Yankees suffered their first home defeat yesterday by the Red Sox, 112. Ted Williams, premier slug ger of the Red Sox hit a grand slam homer in the sixth, the most damaging blow of the day, although earlier two-run homers by Johnny Pesky and Vernon Stephens provided Lefty Mel Parnell with the working margin for this third straight victory. The Yankees, who had won all of their seven games at home this year, looked their very worst before the season's largest crowd, 54,328. Rain fell through most of the latter part of the game and probably prevented the Yankees from attracting a much larger crowd. Alhe Reynolds the starting Yankee pitcher, was the victim of the first two Boston homers. Pesky, who had hit seven homers previously in' his major league career got his blast in the first inning and got his fifth of the season in the third. Xo. 1 for Antonelli Johnny Antonelli, Boston's 19-year-old $75,000 bonus pitcher made his first start in the majors a successful one at the expense of the Giants, 4 to 2 in the second game of a double- header after the Braves won the opener, 6 to 5, and vaulted into first place yesterday at Boston. A crowd of 33,402 watched the left-handed Antonelli limit the Giants to six hits in eight innings before he gave way to Nelson Potter in the ninth With a three-run lead to work on, Antonelli passed Buddy Kerr, pinch hitter Bobby Rhawn and Bill Rigney. The first three batters to face him in the final frame. Potter replaced him at this point. Walker Cooper had been sent up to bat for Whitey Lockman, but when Potter appeared, acting; manager Frank F r i s c h switched to Willard Marshall who singled off Earl Torge-son's glove to tally Kerr. Don Mueller hit for Jack Lohrke and fanned. Sid Gor don lined to Marv Rickert and the Hub left fielder turned the drive into a sensational double play to end the game. A two-run single by pinch hitter Sibby Sisti with one sacks filled enabled the Braves to win the opener. The Giants tied this tilt in the eighth when Cooper homered with Marshall aboard and a circuit placed them ahead in the first half of the ninth. Dodgers, Below .500 Mark, Off to Disappointing Start in Race GRANVILLE HAMNER scores Phillies' first run in game at Ebbets Field yesterday. He didn't have to hit the dirt, but took no chances. Roy Campanella awaits return of ball from Gene Hermanski. Bushwicks Nab Sixth Straight Behind Zachary At Dexter Park yesterday the Bushwicks beat the Black Yankee Travelers in the first game by 4 to 1 for their sixth straight win. The second game was called on account of rain with Bushwicks at bat in their half of the third and leading by 2 to 0. The Bushwicks broke the ice in the opener in the third in ning when Jack Brown walked. Al Zachary hit to deep right center for three bases to score Brown. Eddie Horai grounded out, but Roy Triebel was safe on an error by lxitt, scoring Zachary. They added one more in the fifth on Horai's triple to left center and Horai scored when Roy Triebel singled to center. The last run was scored in the seventh when Horai- singled, was advanced to second by Roy Triebel's sacrifice and scored when Pat Petrino singled. The Travelers scored their only run in the fifth when two errors put Bauers and Barker on base and Albert Clay's single scored Bauer. The visitors had another chance In the seventh when, with Sam Nahem on the mound, Russ Bauers tripled to deep center, but Nahem fanned Manager Marvin Barker and Clay flied out to right. Zachary allowed but four hits in the six innings he worked. Next Sunday the Bushwicks meet the New England Hobos in the first game and Staten Island Lions in the second. The box score: Campy Puts In Squawk About Umps By TOMMY HOLMES Brooklyn's best chance to win the Sabbath ball game came with two out in the bottom of the eighth. Duke Snider had added a clothesline double to the exit gate to his earlier home run with one on and Jackie Robinson had scratched a single ott the glove of Puddin'head Jones. Robinson set out to steal second and made it easily. "The thing to do," nodded Manager Barney Shotton in the post-mortem clubhouse meet ing. "That put the tying run on second base. Robbie wasn't taking much of a chance with that fellow (Russ Meyer) pitching and Andy Seminick catch ing. I don't believe they could get him out stealing one time in fifty. But he might just as well have stayed on first, because we still needed a base hit and we didn't get it." The inning ended with Roy Campanella called out on strikes. There was a brief ex change as Campanella stood at the plate and said something to Umpire Jocko Conlon. Then as Campanella walked away he said something else and Conlon gave him the quick bounce with a sweeping gesture. Fast Hvave-0 "It was quick, all right," agreed Shotton. "Too quick.

Campanella seemed honestly disturbed over getting the gate. He said it was the first time he has ever been put out of a ball game either in organized base ball or in the Negro leagues where he played so long. "I merely asked him where the pitch was and he said it was right over the middle, said Campanella. "Then as I walked away I expressed my opinion on what kind of a strike it was and 1 was on my way. "The pitch was a curve and broke outside but you can't say anything to these umpires. They're too perfect."

Connors bounced sharply back to the box and a double play ended the game. Shotton was asked whv he had sent Connors up to hit "To reduce the possibilitis of a double play, he answered with a sigh. Brooklyn's start in the pennant race has been disappointing. As the Dodgers await the invasion of the Western clubs they have dropped below the .500 mark for the first time. There is no real reason for alarm because the entire league is bunched in the race for the first turn. Still it would be nice to be setting the pace. Shotton was pleased with the quality of his secondary pitching yesterday and Preacher Roe, who started and lost, suffered from a shaky start. Later two pitches "got away" from him and Andy Seminick and Del Ennis lammed home runs into the left field seat. Xo Clutch Slugging "There wasn't anything the matter that a hit in the pinch wouldn't cure," said Shotton, who, at the moment, plans no lineup changes. Meyer, the right hander the Phillies obtained from the Cubs last Winter, pitched a steady eight-hitter, was undamaged ex- mning, cept in the sixth when Snider hit one into the center field stands behind a single by Gene Hermanski. The Dodgers lost, but it was a good ball game on a gray day for 20,507 customers. Heaven only knows when the Phillies last swept a three- game series at Ebbets Field. They did it this time with three starting pitchers Ken Heint- zelman, Hank Borowy and Meyergoing the full distance. If the Phillies get that type of steady pitching very often, they'll give this National League a fit, make no mistake about that. For Eddie Sawyer is an intelligent manager of a good-looking ball club with a nice balance of power and speed, youth and experience. Cartier Faces Governale in Parkway Bout A slugging middleweight match is in prospect tonight when Walter Cartier of Greenwich Village faces Joe Gover nale of Bensonhurst in the main eight-round bout tonight at the Eastern Parkway Rink. Cartier, who is batting over 500 in the knockout class w-ith 14 in 27, holies to make Gover nale No. J.j nut Joe, who recently became a father, expects to turn the tables as a gift to his newly-born baby. Vinnie Culone, Cartier s vic tim in a much-disputed bout, will be on hand to challenge the winner. The .semi-final, another eight-rounder, features Ray Lewis and Johnny Johniken in a return bout which saw Johnny score a second-round knockout in their first tiff. In the sixers Eddie Chavez! faces Manuel Batista and Steve King takes on George Haywood. Nick Palermo and Mike Betts open the show. The St. Nick this evening lists Joey Brocato, well known to Broadway Arena fans and George La Falgio. The Manhattan Center lists .lose Basora and Henry Brimm in the 10-round T. of C. event Wednesday night, while Sunny- side Garden the following evening shows Beppe Colasanti and Jimmy liegeman. Aldo Minelli. brother of Livio, returns to the Ridge wood Grove on Saturday night when he faces Al "Bozo" Costantino in the main eight-round event. Derby to Attract 10 to 14 Starters By JOE LEE King Horse will offer his first big kick of the season Saturday at Churchill Downs, where Col. Matt Winn will stage the Diamond Jubilee edition of the Kentucky Derby, America's Number One horse race. While Fred Hooper's Olympia is still regarded as the one to beat for the first jewel of I the tiiple crown, events of the past two weeks indicate a field of 10 to 14 possible start ers for the gruelling mile and a quarter, run. Quite a few owners with Derby hopes are of the opinion the Hooper colt will lose his zip at the distance. Isador Bieber's Palestinian proved Olympia can be caught when he collared him in the running of the Wood Memorial, only to lose the decision in the last few jumps, where Eddie Arcaro's riding skill was the deciding factor. The four-horse blanket finish of the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland last week at a mile and one eighth in which Halt beat John's Joy, Wine List and Old Rockport in that order, supplied added fodder for the "beat the favorite" addicts who are trying to land on the right selection. Derby Trial Tomorrow Another potential Derby hope may come out of the Derby Trial to be run at the Downs tomorrow. Last year Citation broke the jinx that attended this race by being the first to win the trial and then move on to grab the Derby. But, it must be added, Citation was an exceptional performer. There's no such standout colt in the three-year-old ranks this year. The possible field at this TROUBLE AHEAD?

Omaha Kid Hopes For Control at West Point Today Cincinnati's Reds open the first Western invasion of Ebbets Field tomorrow and Ralph Branca is ready and rested for the big event. So far, the Hawk with three victories and no losses is the only Dodger pitcher to have made a good start. The annual Dodger exhibition against the Cadets at West Point scheduled for today brought an interesting development. Rex Barney, not on the original list of Brooklyn players to make the trip, was put on at his own request and has received permission to pitch. The Omaha kid, wild and ineffective all Spring, overlooks no bets that might help him regain his stuff and perhaps he remembers last year when a nine-inning exhibition against the Cleveland Indians seemed to put track. him on the winning This is the report on the great Third Base Sweepstake Weeks ago: at the Vero Beach training camp news papermen and club officials picked the man they thought would open the season for the Dodgers at third- base. The selections and a dollar bill were placed in sealed envelopes and completely forgotten until yesterday. Five involved in the pool, in cluding Brother Harold Burr, picked the right man, Billy Cox, Among those who did not have a winner were Branch Rickey and Branch Rickey Jr., who went for Spider Jorgensen. The most intriguing selection was that of Walter O'Malley, who chose Babe Didrikson. Stan Hollmik, the new right fielder unveiled by the Phillies yesterday, lives in Hondo, Tex., I Ebbets Field. home of Clint Hartung, the cele-hrated what-is-it of the Giants. A bonus player out of Texas A. and M., he prepped at Wilmington last Summer where he batted .303. A right-handed hitter, he got Into action because Roe, the preacher-man, is what the cliche fanciers call a portside pitcher. In each of Roe's three pitching appearances he has been tagged for two home runs. He retired in the sixth when Shotgun Shuba, making his first appearance of the season, swung for him. The Shotgun person fouled off about a dozen, then grounded out. And, of course, another debutante was Kiven Connors. Snider's home run just did reach the lower stands In center, bouncing high among the customers. It was the Duke's third of the season, his first at T. H.
