It was not known today whether he would be recovered sufficiently to see action Sunday. Yesterday's linescores: With a Little *, Luck Tigers Could Win Title By CORNELIUS RYAN New York, Aug. 3 —(UP) —Although they were the first to admit that it will take a tremendous amount of luck as well as good ball-playing to win the American League pennant, the Detroit Tigers felt today that they might do it. because the luck is due them. The defending world champions have had one bad break after another since the season started. Walter (Hoot) Evers. their star rookie outfielder, twice has been sidelined for long periods by injuries. Dick Wakeficld, another hard-hitting outfielder, also has been out with injuries. Paul Trout, their top right-handed pitcher, lost three straight well-pitched games when the opposition came up with shutouts. Hal Ncwhouser, the major leagues' best lefthander, is out of action for the present with a recurrence of pain in his shoulder. But the Tigers reason that it all will even up. Lady Luck took a step in their direction yesterday as the Tigers whipped the Boston Red Sox, 'I to 1, to regain second place from the Yankees, who lost night game at Cleveland, 3 to 0. Trout pitched an authoritative five-hitter to break his jinx, and he was backed by a 13-hit attack led by George Kell, who is one of the few good pieces of luck the Tigers have had this year. Kcll came to Detroit in trade with the Athletics for Barney McCoskcy, and now is among the league's five leading hitter. He got a three- run triple and two singles yesterday. Tex Hughson was the losing pitcher. Boston still leads by 11 1-2 games, although Detroit now has won 15 of its last 21 games. Allic Reynolds gave up only two hits to the Yanks, who assurde their own defeat with outlandish fielding in the first inning. George Case bunted and the Yanks made two bad throws to send him to third. Ho scored on a flyball. A walk and Heinz Becker's triple gave the Indians another first-inning run.

Tuesday's Elect-ion Will Not Both«i Most of State Reporter Who Lost Feet to Testify P- TOM LAMBERT Tokyo, Aug. 5—(/P)—An American newspaperman, who lost portions of his feel because of mistreatment in a Japanese prison camp, limped to the witness stand ioday at Tokyo's big war crimes trial and gave first hand evidence intended to prove thai the infamous Mukden incident of 1031 was a Japanese frameup. Helped to the chair and with crutches leaning against the witness box, J. B. Powell wen 1 - behind the scenes of Ihe railway blast which Japan used a s ;i springboard to Asiatic conquest after blaming it on China. He had gone lo Manchuria to report the incident for his China weekly review, the Chicago Tribune and the Manchester Guardian. Powell said hordes of Japanese "tourists" had entered Mukden shortly before the blast and he obtained several pictures of '-hem, showing they carried guns and wore arm bands identifying them as Japanese reservists. Only five days after the incident, Powell found Japanese in "complete occupation" of Mukden with Lt. Gen. Kcnji Doihara, one of the trial defendants, acting as mayor. Powell testified that he examined tho blast site within -i week of the incident and "there was no evidence of blast." He said that the bodies of three Chinese soldiers were sprawled alongside the railroad with their heads pointed away as if they had been killed while running from the scene. Powell's testimony drew such heated objections Crom defense attorneys for Hidcki To jo and 2G other accused top ranking war criminals that the president of the International Tribunal sharply reprimanded counsel. "We won't allow you to say another word," Sir William Webb said at one point to Maj. George Furness, of New York when UK- defense attorney sought to argue a Webb ruling. Powell, long a critic of Japanese expansionist policies .said tha correspondents covering ihc Muk den incident at first encountered "very little" hindrance but latei were restricted and that he was told by a clerk in a telegraph of tice he should "be careful" or ho would be killed.
