WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER Bums Worried About Campy His Hand Still Hurts; OtherDodgersAiling By HARRY GRAYSO.V NEA Sports -Editor NEW YORK — (NBA) — Harold Wendler, the trainer, easily was the busiest bloke at Ebbets Field. Carl Furillo's heavy cold had gone down from head to chest. George Shuba pulled a muscle in his side. Billy Cox pulled a muscle i* his upper leg. Dick Williams had a bad leg. The last twinge was being nibbed out of Don Newcombes' pitching shoulder. Billy Loes has had elbow trouble since April. Jackie Robinson strained a groin muscle and had what appears to be a chronic sore right heel. The doctor diagnosed the latter as bursitis. Anyway, alter six or seven innings, it hurt Robby when he ran. But the hospital case about which. the Dodgers were most concerned had to do with the side of Roy Campan- e 11 a " s from which a" bone chip was re- ^ ^ moved. "T h e surgeon Roy Campanella cut across nerves," explained Campanella. "This may sound contradictory, because there is no feeling in that part of the hand, but it ( still hurts when pressed against i the end of the bat." "It's like someone who has lost part of an arm or a leg," said someone. "There are cases where the amputee still has feeling, there." raised his average to a roaring .168. "The operation sept me out three and a half weeks," pointed out Campy. "That's a long time to be out. I had to take spring training all over. My timing has been off. It takes time to get it back." But Campy wasn't- nitting when? he consented to the operation. an4 j this was traced to the aching hand. Campanella lost 15 pounds after an operation for hemorrhoids last! winter, but said he never felt bet- I ter- I * * * ROBINSON MAY HAVE to be spelled all season, but can wreak a lot of damage in six or seven rounds. The versatile UCLA alumnus hit nothing but line drives for quite a spell. Purillo wasn't hitting or fiedling well, but, save for last year, has been a notorious late starrer. Pee Wee Reese and Junior Gilliam have been in batting slumps, especially the latter. Starting the home stand. Newcombe and Loes had won only five games between them and Carl Erskine, the World Series strikeout king, was no better than .500. In view of all this, the wonder SPEARED — Fred Tracy of Lakewood, N.Y., bagged this 44-pound, 9-ounce carp with bow and arrow. Archers hunt for the scavenger in Upstate New York's Lak»Chautauqu«. (NEA) WITH THE POSSIBLE exception of Duke Snider and Robinson, Campanella perhaps is the most valuable member of the Brooklyn club. Indeed, the Harlem liquor store proprietor was adjudged the most valuable player in the National League in 1951 and '53- The pitchers need him like Abbott requires Costello. Last season the burly backstop manufactured 41 home runs and drove in 142 runs. When he homered against recruit Ray Crone of the Braves in Flatbush the other evtning, Campan.r ella had gone 0 to 20, batting with a gloved left hand. The home run I was that the Brooks hadn't fallen apart instead of winning 10 straight and being in the fight for the lead, "If Newcombe and Loes had each won two more, people would be talking about a run-away race." said Senator John Griffin, the clubhouse attendant. j It may or may not be a five-club j To Forgive If Santee's Best, Barthel States Says Wes Can Top Bannister and Landy CAMBRIDGE, Mass. OP)—Olympic champion Josy Barthel says Wes Santee can outrun Australia's John Landy and England's Roger Bannister who have run the two fastest miles known to man. The Olympic 1500 meter champion commented as he 'prepared to leave today aboard the Queen Mary for his native Luxembourg with his wife. Barthel beat Bannister in the '52 Olympics in the j metric mile and lost to Santee's I 4:00.7 performance at Campton. Calif., June 11. "I think Santee can beat them both," Josy said yesterday while he was packing. "He has not yet been pushed." Landy turned in a brilliant 3:58 clocking Monday at Turku, Finland to top Bannister's record-shattering 3:59.4 May 6 at Oxford.

That is the only word which describes the surprising deeds of Leo Durocher's New York Giants. During the last three weeks the Giants have won 18 of 21 games, and a majority of those have been won in the Giants' last turn at bat. Last night's game with the Milwaukee Braves was typical. Trailing 2-1 through eight innings and limited to six hits by Gene Conley. the Giants erupted for three hits and, with the aid of a walk and a sacrifice, tallied two runs to nip the Braves 3-2. Imoprtant Win It was an important victory, for coupled with Brooklyn's 13-1 defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Redlegs earlier in the day. It boosted the Giants' first-place lead to two games over the Dodgers. Willie Mays and Monte Irvin shared the laurels last night. Mays, whose homer No. 21 had accounted Of the Giants' first run. drove in the tying run with a double. Irvin. hltless in his last 26 times at bat. and riding the bench because of a severe batting slump, stepped up to tht plate as a pinch hitter and knocked in the winning run with a two-out single to right center. That's the way it's been going since the Giants began their spectacular climb to the top. Just two weeks ago to the day, its was a double by Irvin that scored two runs in the ninth to give them a 6-5 triumph over the Braves. Two days Inter. Bill Taylor's pinch-hit homer in the 10th beat Conley and the Braves 1-0. A week ago yesterday a three-run homer by Hank Thompson with two out in the ninth against the Beds enable! the Giants to turn defeat into victory. Last Saturday, it was a pinch- hit homer by Hoot Evers with two out in the ninth that enabled the Giants to climax a comback victory over the Cardinals. The next day, another couple of pinch hitters — Bobby Hofman and Dusty Rhodes — slammed homers in the same inning to nip the Redbirds 7-6. Read Courier News Classified Ads.
