Smith took I over with the Braves leading, 1 7-6, and shut them out with only one hit the remainder of the way. Given the sturdy, late-inning relief pitching which they lacked so often in 1954, the Cardinals tied the score on Stan Musials ninth inning home run and won the game on a round tripper by Bill Vir-don, in the eleventh. Red Schoen-dienst. Rip Repulski and Wally Moon also hit homers for the Cardinals while Bobby 7'hrnson and Danny OConnell homered for rthe Braves. At that, the 27-year-old Smith almost deprived himself of the victory with a boner which recalled the famous blunder in 1908 which made Fred .Merkle of the New York Giants immortal. Moon had singled with Smith on first and Bob Stephenson on third in the tenth inning, Stephenson trotting home with what appeared to be the winning run. But the alert Braves noticed that Smith neglected to touch second base and threw the ball there forcing out the pitcher and nullifying the run. A total of six home runs were hit as Brooklyn Dodgers ruined the world champion New York Giants home opener with a 10-8 trumph.

April 15 OJP). Sugar Ray Robinson said he was ahead of schedule on his comeback' trail today. His manager said he would file for re-instatement of Robinsons world middleweight title. Robinson rocked Wisconsin middleweight champion 'Ted Olla' into technical submission in 2:15 of the third round last night in a flash, of the form which made him the worlds greatest fighter, pound for pound. j But little could be indicated as to future greatness by the class of competition. j Robinson said the victory was the biggest thrill since his first fight' after coming out of retirement. Im most satisfied with the timing on my combination," he said. Im as satisfied as I could be with my timing after 31 months out of the' ring. The experienced, 34-year-old Robinson caught the 24-year-Olla with the suddenness of a thunderstorm at the opening of the third round after! a relatively inactive first two rounds. He came out with an explosion of rights and lefts, staggering Olla hardest with a key right. Then he put Olla down for the mandatory eight count with a hard left. Olla was up at four but he might as well have stayed down. Robinson poured into him with blows from all directions, but was unable to put him down again. There was little doubt the fight stould be stopped so Referee Dauber Jaeger stopped it Although Robinson, talked of getting back his title in the ring. Manager George Gatnford. talked about getting it back in the mail. Gain-ford said he would petition the National Boxing Association to recognize Sugar Ray as the middle-! weight champ again.

Lew Byrer, sports editor of the Columbus Citizen, shifted his ever-present cigar and said today he will not appear in probate court Friday. How could I hope to prove to a judge that I dont smoke, he asked. Byrer 58, writes a daily sports column for the Citizen, headed by his pictures. Fea-lured prominently in the photo is a stogie which some accuse Byrer of chomping even in bed. Byrer is one of eight grandchildren ordered to appear before Judge Walter T. Kinder to prove they are eligible to share in the $16,000 estate of Henry Byrer who died here in 1907. Under the will, ill grandchildren must prove they never have used tobacco or whisky, or even entered a place where it is sold, and show their personal lives above reproach. Byrer 'said his two brothers and one sister all agreed not to appear. If their four first cousins also fail to appear, its expected the estate will be divided to all equally as next of kin, rather than under terms of the will. Court aides said that Henry Byrer, a straight-laced Penn-sylvania-Dutch undertaker, neglected to specify in the will that the share of any grandchildren who couldnt qualify ( as non-smokers and non-drinkers would go to those who did.
