Elliott Smacks Two Homers To Lead Giants Post Phils By JACK HAND AP Sporti Writer . Bob Elliott's crashing two- homer debut chased Monte Irvin blues out of the Polo Grounds. New York Giant Jans, dubious of the value of a 35-year-old BOB^on Brave "castotf," came to the Polo'. Grounds last night to be shbwri. And Mr. Elliott sure showed them. , When the Giants . bought big Bob from the Braves.April 8 for $50,000 and 'pitcher Sheldon Jone'S, Mahager Leo DUrocher shouted, "He'll be my crasher." Now they know what he meant. First a home run deep into the ·upper left field seats in the fourth inning. Then No. 2 info the right field'seats in the eighth. . Just a lew hours before Elliott ruined opening night for Hobiri Roberts of the Philadelphia Phillies, the doctors sewed together Monte Irvin's torn ligaments. They said the 1951 runs-batted-in champ might be ready to pinch hit in late July. Elliott's performance and this optimistic report on Irvin ·restored some of the glow of the miracle of '51. Majllf Steady Elliott's home runs plus steady "-.four-hit pitching by Sal Mafilie made New York's first opening night a success with a 5-3 win _over-the Phillies. Ironically, the Braves staggered through a rugged afternoon, absorbing a 14-8 pasting from the slugging Br6oHyn Dodgers. The 'Brooks flattened Max Surkont in the Urst inning and kept it tip all day lor 20 hits, including five by · Duke Snider and a homer, double and single by Roy Capanelln. Seven errors by a crumbling defense helped the Dodgers pour , home runs fof an early 12-3 lend.

Hot Springs, Va.-tflVfhe National Association of Collegiate Commissioners opened a four-day annual meeting here today in an atmosphere of peace and harmony --but members were ipindful of a storm cloud on the horizon that was apt to break open at any time. Chief among the knotty problems expected to come befbre the meeting is the set of controversial recommendations of the special committee on athletic policy of the American Council on Education. Asa' Bushncll, president of the commissioners group and Eastern College Athlclic Conference Commissioner, indicated the ACE recommendations may become the principal topic of conversation. And one of lh« early arrivals, who declined uie of his name, took due note of Bushnell^s remarks. He, too, said he anticipated a Jot of talk on the ACE propoialj -and he didn't cere to predict what might Happen. ( The commissioners simply agree -- as best they can -- dn certain principles they believe to be food lor college athletics and then recommend that their various conferences carry out such practices. In addition to Bushnell, commissioners' attending the meeting are Arthur £. Eilers, Missouri Valley; Wallace, Southern; Erhil L. Larson, Border; Berme Moore, Southeastern; K L. Rorrt- hey, Mountain States; Victor O. Schmidt, Pacific Coast; Howard Gfubbs, Southwestern; Kenneth L. Wilson, Western; and Reaves E. Peters, Big Seven. Robinson Scores Quick Kqyo Oxer Graziano; Eyes Maxim Chicago - (/P) - Middleweight Champion Sugar Ray Robinson, 32, but still a ring killer With a quick and paralyzing punch, is ready for a shot at his third world title after a thinUround knockout of cha'llenger Bocky Gra7.iano, Robinson's execution last night of the former 160-pound champion before a capacity Chicago Stadium crowd of 22,264 apparently was a stepping stone to a June New. York showdown with Champion Joey Maxim for the to drive horrie three runs with a homfcr and double in the St. Louis Cardinals' Second straight night · victory over Pittsburgh, fi-5, . i P out The Cards ripped Mowle Pn'W, an old friend .and former teammate, for five ruhs after two were out in the:seventh.

Yanki Oet Good Start Vic Hascht got the New York Yankees off-winging in their drive 'toward a fourth straight pennant ·with an 8-1 romp over the Philadelphia A's. Big Vic needed help from Johnny Sain when he de, veloped a ^yild streak and walked two straight in the ninth after pitching two-hit shutout ball for the first eight frames. Cleveland and the surprising St. Sugar Kay confessed he went "head-huntin'· early" to pulverize Graziano in a brief but blistering $82,208 to Robinson and ?68,507 to Graziano. Robinson weighed 157%. - "Ah figured that against, a fighter like Rocky, you him quick to keep him from get*, ting cocky," said HbbinSon; "YOU toy with a slugger like him and later when yoti clout him, he thinks it's accidental. So I Sailed into him on every opening." It was a miscalculation that dropped the curtains on eager, wild-swinging Graziano. "See, I bounced off the ropes in the middle of the third fourid aild clouted Koblnson good With a right and down he goes," said Graziano in lilt dressing room. Robinson went down for no'count mldWay ill the third found. "So a little later, he drives me to tho ropes With q left to the body and I figure to bounce off again and give it to him good. But, Wham, he blasts that right and It catches me right on the button and the fight is over." Sugar Ray, who still considers himself the welterweight king (he automatically Vacated that crown when he beat Jake La Malta lor the 160-pound title) as well as the middleweight champion, reportedly will skip a scheduled middleweight title defense Miy It at New York against Paddy Young to take on Maxim.

But George Galnford, Robinson's manager', broadly hinted that Sugar Ray cbhsiders himself capable of whipping much heavier foes and desirous of joining Bob Fllzslrnmons ahd Henry Armstrong as triple ring champions.

Press) Faithful Blrrhihgharh fahs^--and there have been precious few the past two nights^-are wondering who let that wild bunch from east Tennessee into their peaceful city, The Chattanooga lookouts have riddled Baron pitchers for' 32 runs and 45 hits in thS two games. Last night they jolted five throwers for 25 safeties and an 18-5 walk-" away. Mobile bowed to Memphis 10-9 for the Bears' first loss, Atlanta finally found the victory column with a rousing 13-6 triumph over Nashville and New Orleans handed the Little Rock Travelers their first reverse 5-4. The latter fracas was notable principally because Hal Simpson, [he Travelers' muscular outfielder, seems determined to hit a home run in every game. The big fellow poked his third last night iti Little Rock's third outing of the year. First baseman Harvey Zernia also homered for the defending champions. New Orlearis righthander Notman Morton hurled a six-hitter to record his second victory, although he needed some last- InhihR help from Preston Elkins. It was a heart-breaking loss for Ernie Funk, former Amerl6an Legion star, making his horne- town debut in professional ball. Little Rock errors hurl tne youngster.

One of them has given us a hard time the last w*ek. It bogan when We read where Col. James T. Johnson, head selective service official in Alabama, had reminded young Willie Mays of the New York Giants that he "owes perhaps a greater obligation his country" than other boys because of his promise in tile sports world. The occasion was the turn-down of Willie's appeal against being drafted next riionth. The 20-year- old Ne^ro star had claimed he was the chief support of four of his 11 brothers and sisters, his step-dad being unemployed. C61. Johnson ruled it was riot a true'hardship case, and we accept his trained judgment there, but the "greater obligation" quote stlick like a needle in a cracked record. Just why does Willie owe 'a greater debt to his country tlian the kid in the next block who can't clothesline a peg to horhe plate We haVe cbnislderd every angle and haven't corrte Up with the answer yet. Are boys being penalized because they af8 jlrohils- ing athletes? Baseball men have told Ui this spring that they arei but they have been eittfehiely cartful in each instance to specify thit their names hot be used ahd haVe added that It would be much batter for baseball in general If the topic were not raised at all. It is a sensitive industry these days, aware as never before of public opinion, "It's . heartbreaking," said the head of one of baseball's biggest farm systems. "You bring a boy up through two or three grade's and just when you know he's ready for a try at the big time, that's when they are sure to grab him. They always take the best ones, and by this time I know it's no accident. · . · "I don't ..blame the ..boards. They're only protecting themselves against any possible charge of favoritism.'' Don Newcornbe, the huge Brooklyn pitcher, told reporters at Norfolk the other day t h a t he felt certain he would not bu in uniform today but for his athletic prominence. Don, who served a brief hitch in the NaVy before receiving a medical rlischargc, has a whole catalogue of" minor ailments. .There have been other recent cases of ball players recalled to the colors Which have caused persons totally Unconnected with the game to wonder out loud. The answer, now happily available, seems to be that they owed a "greater obligation." There goes that record again. Extn Hurdle Arkadelphia, Ark.-W)-OffIclals a t - a college track meet yesterday wondered Why the tima in the 120-yard hurdles Was so slow. Then they discovered an extra hurdle had been 'accidentally placed on the track.
