But he's still hawking, diet for the Nats, although there's no telling when Clark Griffith, an old fox in bartering; will decide he's ha,d the right offer and away goes Irv. · Tht .Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees have .pones about wanting Noren. They have had their scouts' following the Senatprs around. ' Everyone seems to want a left- handed swinging outfielder these days, especially one who Xnqck in 86 runs, which is what Noreri,- a native of Jamestown, N. Y., did last year for a seventh- place club. He also batted ,279, tipt spectacular, but adequate. -The Nats polished, off the Detroit Tjgers yesterday, 6-3, and in the process Noren got two hits, bpth doubles. Washington only' six safeties, but eight walks, two wild pitches, a balk and an errpr more than made up for the pgiicjty of hits, and made things e.asy for.SH Hudson and Harley ' Grossman. Hemer Far Berra Yogi Berra, the most valuable player in the American League l|st year, who has been out of Action with s sprained ankle for the past two weeks, returned to actieh and blasted a home run in his firs( tr 'P lo 'he plate. He drove in s total of four runs to lead the New York Yankees to an 8-6 conquest of the Boston Braves. Vic · Raschi went seven innings for the Yanks. The Cincinnati Reds, who have been burning up the Grapefruit Leagui for the past week, won their sixth in a row by nipping the Philadelphia Phils, 2-1. Home runs spelled a 6-4 victory lor the Pittsburgh Pirates over the St. Louis Browns. Clyde MeCul- Ipugh, Frank Thomas and Ted Beard hit the round-trippers all with tne bases empty. The Cleveland Indians beat the New York Giant? by the same formula for the second day in a rpw, a rally in the ninth inning. This time the hero was Roberto . Avila, who homered with one on ojtf Al Corwin to pace the Tribe to »' «rS victqry. Clem Labine and John Rutherford combined to hold the St. Louis Cardinals to five hits, while the Brooklyn podgers were running lip If 7-2 victory, and the Chicago Cubs tronpced their neighbor?, the. White Sox, 7-3 with a barrage. · GREATER THAN COBB Sawyer Rates Slaughter As Best Competitor Ever In Big Leagues By JOE REICHLCIt Miami, Fla.-OJVWhen talking about the greatest active player ir| baseball today, Manager Eddie Sawyer of the Phillies cpntendt you can't stop with Ted Williams and Stan Musial. The Philadelphia professor says he'd have to rate Enos Slaughter in his prime over either of these famous sluggers. In«» [laughter Slaughter, ; a n outfield teammate of Musial, will be 36 next month and is in his loth year with .he-St. Louis Cardinals, "SHaushter in his prime was a jotter ba.ll player than Musial is ,oday," said Sawyer. ''And I agree with those who think Stan Is the lest in the game right now. But i've never seen a greater competitor, a fellow with more spirit, lustle and the desire, to win than Enos. Slaughter's batting marks in .he late thirties and early forties may not have been as high as .hope that Musial compiled in the :ast half dozen competition years, but the is much rougher then. So were the pitchers." A Slaughter Fan ''I've always been a Slaughter fan," admitted Sawyer. "I've been in this game a long lime but I've never seen Slaughter's equal in playing the game fnr everything that's in il. He's beaten me out of many a hall game but he's the kind that makes you lake your hat off to him even though he's on the other side. That is why I picked him on the National League All-Star team last year although he had time. 1 a broken finger at the Sawyer's praise of Slaughter recalled the remarks made by Bucky Harris only a short time ajn. "Slaughter may not be the greatest ball player of all time," the astute Washington manager said! "but he is the best exponent of the desire-to-win the game has known . . . and I don't except Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrij or any other star. He Never Quit* "How Cobb could have omitted his name when he. selectecj the players who compared with the old time stars, I don't know Slaughter, like Cobb, never quit. He never will. He won't even let up.. He plays just as hard today as he did the first day he reported. I( T recall an incident the other day," raid Harris. "We were p'ay- ing the Cards. Orfe of thalr fellows slapped a routine bouncer to second. lie looked like an easy put. But the guy never pave u». He ran down the line as if his life depended on it. The second baseman had to hurry his throw and just did make the out. " 'Hey, that kid is really hustling out there," I thought. 'He reminds pie of Slaughter.' As he raced back to the bench, I got a good look at his face. Yep, you guessed jt. It was Slaughter! "What that guy can, or can't do, is beside the point. But he is the greatest competitor ever to put on big league uniform. "And as I have said before , . . That goes for Cobb, ton." Elder Being Champ Thin Contender, Says Lightweight Carter Los Angeles-yPHt's lots easier being charnpion than just one of the contenders, says Carter, . kirig of the lightweight boxers. "Before. .1. won the .title I had trouble' getting work. fCow everyone wants to fight me and I'm busy most of the time," the 135- pon'nd'New Yorker explains.

Would Have Government Actually Operate Roids Washington-OP)-f he government should actually operate seized railroads instead of having only token control, as at present, says Sen. Murray (D-Mont). He called the current seizure -to prevent a strike -- unfair to railroad workers because the railroads continue to operate the lines. Court testimony has disclosed that the Army is now exercising its seizure with only 43 officers and a small staff of clerks. Stumbles Home With Top Money At N.O. New Orleans-WI-Weary Patty Berg won the first New Orleans women's golf tournament by five strokes although she turned in an eight-over-par 82 final round. Patty, who was ahead by ten strokes after 54 holes, saw that margin melt away gradually before finishing the 72-hoIe tournament yesterday with a 2U9 to take the title and $1,000. Her play in the final round was a shocking reversal of earlier tournament play. Miss Berg had a 73-74-70--217 that was five under par for the first 54 holes. She blamed her poor play of yesterday on being "very tired." Marilyn Smith, a vivacious 22- year-old .blonde from Wichita, Kan., and Miss Betty Jameson, the veteran star from San Antonio, Tixas, finished in a tie for second five strokes behind Miss Berg with 304s. Finishing fourth with a 306 was Louise Suggs, a native of Georgia who now calls Cincinnati, Ohio, Dome. Babe Zaharias, the leading money winner among the women professionals this year, tied for r ifth with Mary Lena Faulk, Thomasville, Ga., with 311.
