Poplar Terms 174R1 BY HAUUY GRAYSOX NBA Sports Editor JEW YORK (NEA)---A veteran Pittsburgh baseball writer was) nrkcci bow Billy Herman was liked in the Smoky City in-.his first j year as a manager. "When you're losing nobody likps you,'' was the prompt reply. That we"nt for even Connie Mack in Philadelphia. The main trouble with the Pirales is that they arc overloaded with right-hand batters. Right- hand pitchers nr; all they rco, as long ns the other club has one available. Manager Herman points out that he couldn't play the running game he prefers with an almost total lack of speed. The answer there is that he should not have attempted it. Slowness of foot made conservative managers out of such established field marshals as Billy Southworth of the Braves and make-'cm-throw-you-out E d d i e Dyer of the Cardinals. H ERMAN has repeatedly attempted the squeeze play without cither the runner or the bunlsr capable of executing it. Too many of them retired the side, more than once on double plays that pulled the opposition out of a hole. The game must be fitted to the material. With neither possessing anythmr remotely approaching respectable pitching, the Giants and Pirates have clubbed each other over the head all the way along the route This accounts for the Giant making a joke of home run records, the"two outfits monopolizing the leadership in home runs and Insurance Harker Hilef INSURANCE AGENCY runs-battcd-in with Mi?c. Marshall and' Cooper on the .cv. Polo Grounds and Forbes Field's j Greenberg Gardens. ' In 19 games in Harlem and Pittsburgh, the Giants and Pirates manufactured 55 home runs, an average of 2.2. They made 386 lits, an average of 20; scored 237 runs, an average of 12. Scorers have put in orders for comptometers. Despite poor pitching, it Js a sad commentary on the Giants that they gave up when only six games out of first place. The Cardinals made a fresh run , for it when they were 10 games back, and they haven't drawn anything like 1,300,000 paid admissions at home, which is a new Polo Grounds record with some games to go. "" a * * _ , President Clark Griffith of the" Washington club calls Lou Boudreau of the Indians the best shortstop he-has ever seen. "You mean you think Boudreau is the finest player today," suggested the interviewer. "No," the all-time pitching great replied. "Boudreau is the best shortstop I have ever seen, and that includes Honus Wagner. "There is nothing in the infield he doesn't do well,'and look at that batting average." Griffith, among countless other things, sold his son-in-law, Joe Cronin. also quite a shortstop, for Bull Dogs Play At Olney Friday High! "Olney has the material and will improve vastly as the season progresses," says the Olney Daily Mail of the grid eleven the Harrisburg Bull Dogs will meet on the Olney Tigers' field at 8 p. m. Friday. This remark was made following Olney's 13 to 0 loss to a better- than-average Newton team Saturday night. Newton scored on their first and last plays of the game.

Ncwtpn looked better in the first and final periods. "The Tigers were up against a good team Saturday night," the Daily Mail states. "There is no question about that."

Joe (Bun-head) Dobsqn of the Red Sox missed a no-hitter only by the margin of Walt Judnich's broken bat single in the seventh in a 5 to 0 second game victory which followed a 9 to 4 decision for the Browns in the opener.
