Giants Obtain Elliott For Left Field Duty (By Hie AnocliM Fret.) ' The pennant stock of the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers is on the ascent today. It appears that Clem Labine, ·lated to fill the big shoes .of Pvt. Don Ne'vcombo of the United State! Army, will make the grade while t!ie Giants' hopes are brightened by the acquisition of Bob Elliott, veteran slugger from the Boston Braves. The Giants obtained Elliott late last night for pitcher Sheldon Jones'arid ap estimated $30,000. Elliott, a holdout with the Braves, came to terms quickly and will report to the Giants at Tulsa, Okla., tomorrow. Manager Leo Durocher plans to stick Elliott in left field, a, snot left vacant by the unfortunate"injury to Monte Irvin, who suffered a'broken ankle in an exhibition game recently. Elliott has played third base since joining the Braves in 1946 but he previously played the outfield for Pittsburgh. He has driven in over 1.000 runs durmg his big league career and is one of the best clutch' hitters in the gcmo. Champi Are Beaten The Giants can use Elliott's bat. The National League champions were beaten, 5-0, by the Cleveland Indians in Houston, Texas, yesterday. Bob,Feller and GeorRe Zervlnk blanked the Giants on eight hitE. Brooklyn doesn't expect I.ablnc to win 20 games but the Brooks wouldn't be surprised if the husky 25-yo2r-old curve ball artist did hit that maaic number. Labine, bothered recently with a swelling of his pitching elbow, became the third Dodger pitcher I t--j gojiine innings yesterday, when I he turned back ihr Boston BravesH 4-1, it Richmond, Va. Neweombe, Spring Training Rugged Oh Many Of Baseball's Stars New York-MVAre spring tours necessary? Do they bring more harm than good! It would be interesting to »sk such athletes as Mont* Irvin, Red Schoendienst, .Jo« Collins, Billy Martin, Vern Benson And several others what they think. None of these lads will be in the lineup when the major league season opens next Tuesday. All are on the sidelines nursing serious v/ounds suffered in exhibition games while conditioning themselves for the championship race. The most serious, of course, and also the most tragic, is the compound facture and ankle dislocation suffered by Irvin. The injury, a shattering blow to the New York Giants, occurred while Irvin was making a routine slide into third base in an exhibition game against the Cleveland Indians in Denver's Bear Stadium: The Denver ball park, incidentally, haoperts to be one nf t.he largest, most complete and best maintained of all minor league parks. Monte, the key man in the Giants' offense, is expected to be out least half the season, and maybe all of it. Schoendienst, one of the shining lights of the St. Louis Cardinals, broke the third finger of his throwing hand in an exhibition game against the Phillies hi Clear- witer, Tit., and will misi »t least the first week of the tctmpaign, Benson, · teammate. brok« an ankle in a gam' against the Boston Braves in Bradenton, Fla., and is not expected back until the middle of June. The rookie outfielder had been very Impressivi in camp and tccording to manager Eddie Stanky Vwas 99 Der cen sure of making the team." Martin' seemed a clnc'i to open the season at second base for the New York Yankees when he broke his Tight ankle sliding into second base while flemonstratini his art for a Joe DlMaggio television show. Collins, the regular Yankee first baseman, suffered a serious spike wound on Ijls foot in a game against the Braves and will miss the first two weeks of tlie campaign. He is under treatment in New York hospital. Others currently nursing injuries of sorts include Peewce Reese of the Dodgers (swollen finger); Gil Cnan and Irv Norcn, Senators (leg injuries; Sid Gordon, Braves (charley horseT; Harry Brccheen, Cards (elbow chips). No wonder the managers can't wait for the season to start. They are counting the days on one hand and keeping their fingers crossed 6n the other. Arkansas Ww* SPORTS dccksd in Army khaki, was an interested spectator. Labine allowed eight hits. The 'youngster, a former Army ! paratrooper, said after th« game thDt his arm wa.- improved. "I felt a little tired toward the end but didn't feel much of thjt burning sensation I'd been Celling in my elbow," Labine said. Fine Pitching Veterans Ed Lopat and Allie Reynolds also came up with a fine pitching performance as the New York Yankees downed Charlotte of the Trl-Ststc League, 3-1, *t Charlotte, N. C: .Vinegar Bend Mizoll. prize Cardinal rookie, allowed only one hit In five iruiinss as St. Louis nosed Cut the Philadelphia Phils, 8-8, at W;nston-Salern, N. C. Maurice McDermolt blanked the Athletics on two hits for seven innings but the Athletics landed on Jim Atkins for four runs in the eighth inning to beat the Boston Red Sox, 4-3. at Lynchburg, Va. Minnie Minoso banged out four hits to lead the Chicago White Sox to an easy 8-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates at New Orleans. In Arkansas' first game with Winona State Teachers College Monday afternoon, head coach Otis Douglas scored a definite assist in the victory. Douglas, wfio in the past has spent some time as a baseball coach and manager, was sitting in the stands bellowing encouragement and advice to the Arkansas players. Early in the game he discovered the Winona pitcher, a young righthander named Paul, was failing to cover the ball in his windup for delivery to the plate. As the pitcher prepared to take his arm back for each pitch the grip on the ball was revealed and hence the pitcher's intentions of tossing a fast hall or a curve. Douglas noticed this early in the game and started calling the pitches before the pitcher ' could get the ball out of his hand. Nix Pitches Hogs To Win Over Winona The Arkansas Razorbacks, behind the steady pitching of Edsel Nix, blanked the Winona, Minn., State Teachers, 10-0, yesterday at the Porker Diamond. Nix went the route, allowing only four hits and w«s effective in the clutch. AI Kullj, big rlghthanded ace of the Winona team, a;so turned in a-sparkling performance on the mound. He allowed seven - hits, but struck out 10 and allowed but gan to worry the Winona mounds- man. He called a conference with his infielders to see what the tipoff was. All the while his control and I confidence were ebbing. The pay- Dee Fondy homered with two O f[ came when Porker left fielder out and one on in the last of the ninth off Satchel Paige to give the Chicago Cubs a 5-4 decision Over the St.'Louis Browns ct Oklahoma City, Okla.

H«nk Bauer will be in right- field, Mickey Mantle In center ind Jackie .Tcnsen and Gene Woodllnf! will alternate In left. Mantle was given the centerfield post by Stengel yesterday.

Not white, not wneit, MI m, but i flavor blend of til three-- Jlmje'l Roman Mul Bread. 11-ll-tf. Red Warren stepped up to the piste. Warren told Doug to call the pitch for him and took his stance. The pitcher wound -up, Douglas boomed out: "Fast ball. Warren stepped into the pitch and lined it over the left field fence for a homer. After that the pitcher and catcher got together, the pitcher shaking his head in perplexity. Somehow he got an idea that he wasn't covering the ball and from then on he wrapped his glove around his grip a little better. But the damage was already done. The most sparkling play of the day yesterday was a' throw from right field by Lamar McHan. With a runner on third the Winona batter smashed a long drive into right field. A stout wind held the ball 'up and* kept it from going too deep, but as soon as the catch was made the runner on third took out for home. McHan pegged the ball on a line to the catcher at home plate and Lyle Wilkerson, the Hog backstop hardly had to move his glove to catch it. The runner was still 20 feet short of home plate when the ball got there, too. Basketball coach Glen Rose, still looking over his material, is almost of the opinion that he will need a real tall boy if success is to come next winter. By tall Rose says he means about two to six inches more than any oT the present Porkers can provide. The Michigan track team, which will .compete in Saturday's Arkansas Relays, will eflme early according to the coach, so his boys can get in some practice under the "sunny, southern skies." T*here are some folks that would argue with the coach on both counts. Eugene Stevens, of Gravette, Ark., who cut a wide swath in Northwest Arkansas Junior Legion circles a few years ago is being hailed by the Boston Red Sox as the next Ted Williams. The Boston brain-trust says the youngster "can't miss."' The name rubber come: from the fact ihat rubber can rub out pencil marks on paper, one Of its earliest usei in Europe. ' Ancient boats often were pointed at both ends and had iteerini ip- paratu« «t each end 10 they could be sailed eltt*r wny. _'s support, giving the Porkers the first nine runs on mlscucs in fielding. . Tne only long hit of the game was a triple by Lewis Carpenter that caught the Winona center- fielder playing in close to thc infield. Carpenter's hit came in thc sixth and accounted,for the game's only earned- marker. 'Ihe Porkers meet Buena Vista College, of storm Lake, Iowa, this afternoon at 3 o'clock in the llrst of a two-game series. The two teams will meet again tomorrow.
