Ray Kilgorc, 40, a 10-point or 5 to 1 underdog, defeated the 84- year-old Grey Eagle 50-47 in n lense 53 innings. He had to overcome hoth his own nervous' pressure,'which built up heavily toward the finish, and an exlrcmely "irht Hoppe defense, The combination was so terrific that Kilgore scored only two points In a 12-innlng stretch. 'Meanwhile the champ pulled from a 36-4," deficit into a_ 47-47 tie and many fans feared R'ny had cracked under the- strain. But the well-liked and/lotidly- npplauded Irishman answered the champion's tying 4-run with two billiards of his own. And in the next inning he made another. The loss dropped Hoppe into a 5-1 lie for first place \vilh Kinrcy Malsuyama of Tokyo.

By JOE RKIl IlI.EIt West Palm Beach, Fla.-(/P)- Fcrris Fain, fearless first baseman of the Philadelphia /'thlelics gulped down his coffee, chuckled aloud and cracked: "If I lud realized II was going feel so good. 1 would have started hilling like lhat much sooner." .Fain referred, of course, lo his jailing mark of .341 last season. *fot only was thai figure enough o lead Ille American League, but t marked the first time ho had ever topped .300. Hoiv could Fain, better k n o w n r his cleverness a n d ' adroitness around the bag than for tils ability t the plale, account for his sudden batting prowess? What is his secret? "That's risM," Ferris acknowledged. "It is a. secret--a trade secret. I learned something about hitting last year t h a i I didn't know before. I am going lo apply the same technique this year and hope it works out as well. I won't (ell what II is hut it has nothing In do wilh a new stanre, a new bat or anything like tiint." Being moved up lo second spol in the baiting order also helped him raise his average more than BO points, Fain said. A c t u a l l y he wciil. from .282 to .344. ' "Up unlil lasl year, 1 was baiting Illirri, fourth and f i f t h " Ferris explainer!. "I was C" ccted (o provide the long ball, hit the bore runs, drive in the runs. I simp! not thai kind of a hitler.

Tommy Byrne, whom Iho Yanks finally passed on to Ihe St. Louis Irrwns last sinson because his lock of control gave Manager Cnscy Stengel kidney stones, is a happy athlete at the prosiect of steady work and feels tills is the year ic will live up lo every promise.
