PAGE 1 2-PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE: July 6, 1945 .Dodgers Lose Card. i Cubs 111 Sportugh1 bu Grant land Rice Tic All-Star Argument On Monday the two big leagues will put on an inter-league carnival for the benefit of the Red Cross fund. Yankees and Giants at the Polo Grounds hope to raise $75,000. Other cities expect or hope to match these figures. It will be a good National-American League test, team for team. In a way this will take the place of former All-Star games, suspended this season for travel reasons. Which reminds us that this would be a good time to have the two All-Star collections picked, even though they will $ret no chance to exchange hits and errors and runs on & 1945 field for important reasons. It would be interesting to see just how many rookies or younger p!ayers would make the grade and enter the olive-bedecked portal of the game. Certainly no selecting group could leave off such pitchers as Dave Ferriss of the Redsox and Russ Christopher of the Athletics. Hooked up with Hal Newhouser of the Tigers this trio has been in front all season. This would have to be the American League choice. Ferriss and Christopher have been two of the season's star pitchers. Ferriss Does Good Job Any pitcher who can'wifl 11 games for the Athletics nearing mid-season must be using a rifle or throwing a grenade. It is difficult to believe any pitcher could accomplish this feat by employing only his right arm. In addition to proving his place as a winning pitcher, Redsox' Ferriss has also turned up as a fine all-around ball player who knows what a bat is. . Over in the National circuit you can't leave out Goody Rosen ot the Dodgers and Tommy Holmes of the Braves. Here are two young men who have been setting the pace most of the season in Wallop town. So here are five sure nominees, Ferrtss, Christopher and Newhouser from the American League Holmes and Rosen from the National. Naming the National League staff has a number of rougher edges. There has been practically no consistent pitching in the National League all season. They come and go in parades, game after game. Mort Cooper of the Braves has been the most effective workman, followed by Claude Passeau of the Cubs. Van Lingle Mungo is in the middle of his best season. Bill Voiselle of the Giants started like a gale with eight in a row and then turned into a zephyr for the next six weeks. The Cardinals have had no top pitcher, barring Burkhardt. We would rather leave this selection to the managers. In the pitching department the National League would be outclassed. Keeping the Argument Moving Here is another odd entry. How are they going to crowd SS-year-old Tony Cuccinello of the Whitesox from second base? Tony has been around 19 years, dating back to Syracuse in 1926. But this has been the best season Tony has ever known, with a batting average up around .340, well beyond George Stirnweiss. Cuccinello has been an important cog in an improving Whitesox situation. You can name Verne Stephens of the Browns and Marty Marion of the Cardinals at short and rest your case. You can also summon Whitey Kurowski of the Cardinals to the third base spot in the National and feel sure you have the right man. There has been no Red Rolf e around in the American ro one to make you forget Jimmy Collins, Buck Weaver, Bill Bradley, Pie Traynor or Art Devlin. That's another spot we'll turn back to the managers or other official selectors. The war absence of Walker Cooper of the Cardinals and Mickey Owens of the Dodgers removed the two best catchers in the- National league. The Yankees have found no one to move about in Bill Dickey's No. Twelves. There are several others who will have to be given serious consideration. Among these you'll find Mel Ott who has been named on somethink like 14 all-star teams. Mel was the main mauler of his circuit until the Giants began their big dip but he is still having one of his better years. Snozzle Lombardi is another. Cavarretta, Hack and Nicholson of the Cubs are three others. What about Dixie Walker, 1944's batting champion? The 1945 selection, if one is made, as it should be, could lead to more arguments than any season in many years. The number of new faces jamming their way into the picture, forcing veterans out, would add to general interest where in other years the nominations have been too dried and cut. A number of other possibilities have been left out in this list, but the names offered cover most of the cast that would have been playing next week if war transportation hadn't shut out the show. Sidelights By Al We were lucky to sit in on a preview of the Ernie Pyle picture, "G I Joe," the other day. One of the stars in the show is Freddie Steele, the former middleweight champion. Steel has a big part in the rugged movie as Sergeant ,...,,.,,., X Warnicki, and 1 of it all the way. Wilbur Cooper and Paul Waner have accepted invitations to play for the Baseball Writers against the Radio Men this Sunday at Forbes Field. Jimmy Ripple, Moose Solters, Leo Mackey, Steve Swetonic and Ottie Cochran will also be In I Paul Waner Mel Ott considers Shibe Park in Philadelphia his jinx park. He not only has never hit a home run there, but only batted .178 in 1944 against the Quakers on their home lot His batting mark there this year is .167. Carrol Wlddoes will have another powerful Ohio State football team at his command this fall. Johnny Allen, former Yankee and Indian hurler, is managing the Greensboro Club in the Carolina League. Cy Young, famous old-time pitcher, is 78 years old, but wears glasses only for reading.

I" ' Signs Poin Horsemen Fearful Of ODT Action Sea Swallow Does More Traveling Than Soldier on Furlough By Oscar Fralcy New York, July 5 (UP) Thor oughbred owners are fearful tonight that the ODT survey of racehorse shipping may be the prelude to another ratine ban and it would seem that their fears are well grounded. If it comes to a shutdown the improvers of the breed have no one to fclame but themselves. They have practically asked for such action by the gay abandon with which they have been shipping their oat-burners hither and yon about the country. This department has no quarrel with Charles S. Howard, the West Coast automobile magnate. But Mr. Howard or, more particu larly his colt called Sea Swallow, is a case in point About the only thing that Sea Swallow has had to recommend him is the facf that he is a son of the mighty Seabiscuit. Speed was something with which the fewallow had only a passing acquaintance until yesterday. Yet he did more traveling than a. soldier on furlough as Howard shot almost hopelessly for the big stake jackopts. Itinerary Was Cook's Tour Sea Swallow was running: at Agua Caliente when the race ban was lifted in May. His itinerary in the past two months has been a sort of Cook's tour of the turf. The colt was mailed post-haste to Kentucky, which is more than a bicycxe ride from the Mexican oval, and immediately showed his class by running a rousing seventh in the Blue Gras3 Stakes. One week later he proved it no mistake by cantering home seventh again, in the Derby. Sea Swallow showed definite promise though being only 17 lengths behind the winner. So on that effort he earned a trip to old Baltimore for the Preakness. There he was a successful sixth. He was improving, though, so it was on to New York for the Belmont. There he paid off handsomely on all that travel with a scintillating fifth. 17 Lengths Behind Pavot He was only a mere 17 lengths from the wire when Pavot coasted home in the Belmont and that ap parently convinced Trainer C. J. Casey that here was a racehorse with definite promise. No Whirla- way or Count Fleet, mind you, but hadn t tne colt made good for all that travel? He'd come from Mexico, to Ken tucky, to Maryland, to New York, and showed definite promise by finishing one spot better each time until he was a fifth place finisher in a definitely second-rate three-year-old field. So they moved him to Massa chusetts. Finally, when he was a fat 16 to 1 shot, the Swallow romped in for a 525,675 purse in the Yankee handicap. That meant that Howard, who doesn't have to worry about money, had shipped Sea Swallow a total of 4,273.4 miles for five races in two months. What price glory? It's just one illustrous travel folder of several hundred which has put the ODT bloodhounds on the trail. When said investigators make their report, probably written on the back of Sea Swallow's time table, they'll undoubtedly label it: "Gullibles Travels."

UP) Promoter Mike Jacobs, whose boxing discoveries have met with considerable success, starts his annual mid-summer talent hunt tomorrow when he matches Tommy Bell, of Youngstown, O., against Jacob LaMotta of New York in a 10-round bout in Madison Square Garden. Although Bell has established a better-than-fair reputation in welterweight circles, it will be his first appearance in the Garden and Promoter Jacobs is concerned only with what takes place on boxing's "main stem." Last summer Jacobs staged indoor bouts in the big arena and turned up three newcomers whose performances during the indoor season contributed quite a bit toward the Jacobs income. Ike Williams, Lee Oma and Jimmy Mc- to A Pitching Miracle Team's Stunt of 1914 Likely to Stand Boston. July 6. UP) With Tommy Holmes' ring bat, which he broke the other day, singing a -402 tune, the baseball public, which demands a miracle almost annually, is asking about the Boston Braves. Are they, on this early July date, gathering themselves for another astounding pennant dash. Unfortunately for all concerned, no. The Braves, even if Holmes can prolong his lusty clouting, which he has done in 32 consecutive games, cannot overcome his club's pitching disappointment. Back in April most of the experts rated the Tribesmen as good enough for fourth place in the National League windup. But that was because they figured Manager Bob Coleman had a surefire pitching staff and much needed infield strengthening. But now it is July. The Braves haven't anything resembling pitching, despite the costly addition of Mort Cooper, or an infield that stays put two days in a row. A woeful lack of pitching, aggravated by Coleman's inability to come up with a reliable relief performer, has cost the Tribesmen many games to date. With double-headers piling up, Coleman often is in a quandary about naming his next day's hurler. But meanwhile Holmes is,- as he has done most of the season, leading both leagues at the plate. Unfortunately, his sensational successes have not been able to pull his teammates out of their second division depths. Holmes, however, has given Boston fandom a new hero and, a most genial one. That Brooklyn-born Irishman has made most of the public forget all about Ted Williame, Boston's last .400-slug-ger. Browns Win In 11th, 4-3 Buck Newsom Forces In Winning Run St. Louis, July 5. (AP) With the scored tied and bases loaded, Bobo Newsom walked Frank Man-cuso and forced in George Mc-Quinn with the winning run to give the St. Louis Browns a 4 to 3 victory over the Philadelphia Athletics in ' the eleventh inning of their series finale tonight.

F err ell Equals Catching Record Chicago, July 5 LT) Veteran Rick Ferrell of the Washington Senators today entered base ball's Hall of Fame as he caught his one thousand seven hundred and twenty-first game, matching the all-time American League record held by Ray Schalk, former catcher for the Chicago White Rick Ferrell sox. The 38-year-old Ferrell, playing in the American League since 1929, reached the games-caught record as the Senators trimmed the Whitesox, 5-2, at Comiskey Park. Schalk set his record during a 17-year period from 1912 to 1928. Homer in 11th Beats Yankees Heath's Blow Gives Indians 2-1 Victory Cleveland, July 5. UP) Jeff Heath's third homer of" the year opening the eleventh inning broke up a pitching duel today between Ed Klieman and Ernie Bonham and gave the Cleveland Indians a 2 to 1 triumph over the New York Yankees. The Tribe won the series, three games to one, as Klieman notched his third victory by scattering 10 Yankee hits. Tribesman Frankie Hayes returned to catch hi3 two hundred and twenty-sixth consecutive game after getting beaned by one of Allen Gettel's fast balls in yes-terday'3 nightcap. In gaining his second straight victory over New York, Klieman set a new major league record for pitchers by registering six put-outs. NewYork AB.H.P.A.

UP) Pinch- hitter Hank Greenberg smacked a single to center field with two out in the ninth inning today, driving home two runs as the De troit Tigers hiked their American League lead to 4 games by edg ing the Boston Redsox, 9-8. The game. which went 2 hours 53 minutes in actual playing time, was held up for 11 minutes in the first half of the ninth because of rain. Jim Outlaw and Bob Maier, first two Tiger batters in the ninth, reached base by bunting and were sacrificed to second and third by Catcher Jim (Hack) Miller. Zeb Eaton, third Tiger pitcher, fanned but Greenberg hit a 2-and-2 Ditch into center on Relief Pitcher Francis (Red) Bar rett. earning the victory for Eaton, his third without a loss.

F. Balinger Philadelphia, Pa., July 5 Not long after the Buccos and Phils had donned their uniforms and started practice this afternoon, a hard shower came splashing down and Shibe Park soon was too wet for baseball. The postponement will be played off during the final visit here of the Pittsburgh team. That set of engagements will be turned into five and those or August 8 and 10 are scheduled after dark. Play Braves Two Today Walter Beck was to have been on the firing line today, had a game been played, but Frisch declared this evening that he prob ably will switch tomorrow and send Truett Sewell and Al Ger- heauser against the Braves. The doubleheader is due to a washout on May 10. It will be followed bv a single clash on Sat urday and the customary Sunday bargain. Boom-Boom's right wing appears to be in good shape and he may get a chance to do his stuff in one of the New England pastimes. Frankie is telling his players they must not under-rate the Braves who have caused plenty of trouble for all comers with the lone exception of Pittsburgh. These outfits have met four times to date and the Bucs have made a clean sweep, but two of those battles lasted into extra innings. The approaching five combats in three afternoons promise to be a bunch of dog-fights all the way. Cubs Sweep Braves, 3 to 2 Bunch Hits in Sixth To Defeat Tobin Boston, July 5 UP) The Chicago Cubs bunched three of their nine hits after two were out in the sixth today to edge the Boston Braves 3 to 2 and make a clean sweep of the four-game series. Jim Tobin pitched one of his better games, retiring the first nine men who faced him, but to no avail. Tommy Holmes' sinple in the first Inning marked the thirty-second consecutive game in which he has hit safely. C'hkNim Hack. 3b. . Johnsn,2h Nichlsn.rf Cavrta.lb Pafko.cf . . Lorey.lf.

Bucs Receive Good News Doctor Okays O'Brien; Elliott Is Rejected Good news came to the Pirates in two ways yesterday. Tommy O'Brien, the ailing outfielder, was given a medical O. K. by his doc tor, and Bob Elliott was rejected for military service for the fifth time. O'Brien had a sick appendix removed at the St. Francis Hospital some time ago and the operation proved a success. He was discharged from the hospital earlier in the week and his doctor pronounced him ready to wear a uniform on July 16. Elliott took another physical examination at the Old Postoffice Building yesterday and was rejected for army duty. He is subject to recall by his local draft board for another examination however. Bob left last night to rejoin the Pirates in BoBton. Major League frrldajr. July B, 145 National League VFHTKRDAVS RESVLTS flttsburgh-PMladelpbia, rain.
