Red Sox Defeat Browns; Dodgers Down Cubs BELMONT'S FIRST OF SEASON-HORSE KILLED ' By JACK HAND Asiociilid Prsii Sperti WriUr Al Rosen's'winter batting practice is paying off for the Cleve-- Isnd Indians with a spring homr run spree. . Tuesday night he hit three home runs at Philadelphia. Last night he blasted his seventh homer of the year, with two on,' to trample Washington. 6-2. He is tied with Boston's "Walt Dropo for the American League lead with 15 runs batted in. Rosen and his mates backed up . Mike. Garcia's seven-hit pitching by blasting Julio Moreno and Tom Ferrtek-for 15 hits. Dale Mitchell also hit a homer. Rosen's blow in the seventh, followed a triple by Harry'Simpson and a walk to Bobby Avila. Dropo set the home run pattern in the afternoon at Fenway Park witti a bases-loaded blast off Ned Carver in the Boston Red Sox's 13-6 riot against the St. Louis Browns. Balk On»« Trouble' Carver coasted along with a 3-1 lead until the Sox cut loose with a big nine in the sixth. A balk called by umpire' Charli? Berry and an error by rookie Jim Rivera on Don Lenhardt's long drive upset Carver. Dropo's smash knocked iim out. "1 got mad when the balk was .called," said Carver. "I just started throwing. I realize if you get the other fellow mad he can't play. Thais' what I did. It's my fault." While Carver was getting "mad," lefty Bill Heiiry clicked off his third straight win by holding the Browns to eight hits. The Browns also lost the services of Marty Marion when his old sacrn- iliac trouble kicked up in mid- gamp. He thinks he'll be able to return today. Eddie Lopat, i little off the beam in his previous starts, found the groove against Detroit to throw a two-hitter for the Yanks' 4-1 victory. George Kelt was the only Tiger able to hit off Lopat with a single in the first and eighth. Poor fielding by. Gerry Priddy and Steve Souchock, who misjudged a Phil Hlzzulo fly into a double, got loser Ted Gray in trouble in the three-run third. Carsy Makes Debut Andy Carey. 565,000 bonus rookie making his debut, was obviously nervous. He made two errors and failed to hit. Philadelphia outscrambled the Chicago White Sox, 1-3-12, in a weird night game at Shibe Park where 11 pitchers took turns dishing up base hits.

Adlai Stevenson of Illinois dropped in last night from Oregon, still saying no to suggestions he might be drafted to be a Democratic presidential candidate. In Portland, he said: "I spent the greatest .part of the evening trying to -persuade them not to "vote for me." His name was entered in the Oregon primary and it can't be taken off. Stevenson, who will visit to- morrcwwith Gov. Earl Warren, a Republican presidential candidate, also said he is not in California for political purposes. On being advised that Oregon Democratic National Committeeman Monroe Sweetland had said ha believed "the door is open to a "draft," Stevenson said, in an interview: "That's Mr. Sweetland's observation. I tried to impress him otherwise." NORTHWEST ARKANSAS TIMES. FayeHtvIlle, Arkanim.. Saturday, May 3, l«il ACE Ready To Throw Weight Behind Its Proposed Program Of Athletic Control Chicago - (/P) - The American* Council on Education is- ready t o ' throw its full prestige behind a strict sports reform program first recommended by a group of college presidents last February. The ACE's section on athletics approved the program yesterday. It went to a resolution . committee this morning anil presumably i will be put before the entire ACE membership later today. The program includes, among 10 major noints. the abolition of a t h - letic scholarships as such, the elimination of out-of-season practice, such as spring football drills, and the banning of post-season "firms like the Rose and Sugar Bowl Ramos.

SPORTS ROUNDUP Marion Reclaiming Title As "Mr. Shortstop" On Play With Browns " A soecial committee of college oresidcntc hpaded bv John A. Hannah or Michigan Sta*? came Tin with the plan in nvd-Februpry at q meeting in Washington. Their ideas were adonled in full by the ACE; executive committee. The whole item was considered and aunroved 'yesterday by "an ACE section representing university, college and secondarv F-honl ^residents, coaches, athletic directors nnd others, ACE spokesmen say the program to all piirrjpses already is official policy of the council. How- et.-er, they said 1he full membership may .mail it down with a vote later today. The ACE--a grouo of school leaders--has no enforcement powers. It does have enormous pres- tiee. Its membershiD includes most college" and university ^residents and other influential educators. Already that prestit?e has spur- r*d th«!

BOWL FOR HEALTH Benton Bowling Lanes--Adv 'By GATLE TAT,BOT New York-tfP)-WVi»n you watch Marty Marion lend class and color to the St. Louis Browns these snrin.o days you suddenly realize all over again why the t a l l , graceful athlete was known for nil those years wil'i 1'ie Cardinals as ''Mr. Shortstop." It is easy to forget. He was out of the lineup only one full season, sitting unhappily on the Card bench and trying to inanaae a Card team which was over the hill, yet in that brief time memory of his brilliance dimmed a little and Phil Rizzuto of the Yankees became the beau Ideal of shortstops, But now Marlon is bark, transforming a collection of raw rookies and bis league castoffs Into a fiKhtlnr hall club which Is krppint t h e turnstiles humming wherever H appears. \Ve s t r o n p I y recommend that y o u i c e t h e Browns and their shortstop before Marty runs out of sas. | that it makes l i t t l e difference. He might stil! reach any ball that Lou Roudrrau ever did. which is the best illustration we can offer. Though .. t h e TMnin g veteran Mar(yM . r|on i maintains he will play 125 games, it seems f a i r to say that he is an optimist. The major knee, operation he underwent during the winter makes that number a gamble, no matter how good it feels now, and the buck trouble which has plagued Marty for several seasons still forces him to sleep on a board, they say. Also, there will be those flO-degree days along_ in July and August. But as long: as the thin man maintains his present pare he will be worth watching and thf Browns will not fold. He makes you real- ire how thoroughly silly it is to pick any club to win a pennant unless it possesses a really fine shortstop. He makes us recall what Marse .Toe McCarthy gald one spring night In Panama; "After July 4 your shortstop Is your ball club." Marty might be a half-step slower than lie was in his greatest days when the Cardinals were champion?, yet he is so long from where hn begins to the other end H i t t i n g in the important No. 2 spot in tbe Brownie iineun, he is the heart of nn attack which does not promise to be too robust. Though never a great hitter, Marion always was respected, nnd be has grown to be one of the smartest batters in the game, Three timed he came tip a fa in si the Ynnkffs the other day with A runner on first, and three timed ManaRt* 1 Ilornsby railed for t v c hit-and-run. On the ftrst, Marty nulled · nlncle down the left line. | On eaeh of the next two he pushed lazy doubles behind the runnrr into the right field corner aa the crowd roared Its appreciation of hi* artinlry. * "It was worth coming out here just to see that." exulted Frank (Buck) O'Ncil, the eminent baseball historian who was a visitor to the press box. All this means a great deal to the other Browns. The pitchers no longer shudder and shut their eyes when a ball heads for the short- field, and the rookies on the club cannot fail to draw a certain amount of inspiration from an acknowledged artist, "It's great just to be on the Eame team with a fellow like Marion," one of the newcomers told us at training camp.
