Brown’s Muncrief Walks
In Winning Tally With
Two Men Away
NEW YORK, June S.—(IP)—Man
ager Joe McCarthy shook up the
batting order of his New York Yan
kees today and though the changes
scarcely could be said to have put
the bomb back in the bombers,
they did win.
The margin of their 2 to 1 tri
umph over the St. Louis Browns,
however, was a gift run in the
ninth after two wrere out.
Charley Keller received credit for
a double when rightfielder Mike
Ohartak misjudged his fly and he
moved to third on an infield out.
This caused Bob Muncrief, the
Browns’ pitcher,, to load the bases
with two intentional walks and
gave him a bad habit. For, after
fanning Nick Etten or the second
out, he lost his control entirely and
served four consecutive wild pitch
es to Bill Johnson to walk In the
winning run.
St. Louis_ 000 010 000—1 4 0
New York_ 010 000 -001—2 6 1
St. Louis: Muncrief and Hayes;
New York: Bonham and Dickey,

F e d e r Favor* Chalky
Wright To Take Feath
erweight Scrap
NEW YORK, June 3.—UP)—
Chalky Wright and Phil Terranova
tangle in Madison Square Garden
tomorrow night for a chance to
get a crack at the world feather
weight championship—and now the
professor will please explain,
“what featherweight champion
For, the 126-pound title set-up,
as it is put together at this mom
ent, represents a combination of
“button, button, who’s got the but
ton” and the old army game of
trying to pick the pea out from
under the right walnut shell.
As a matter of fact, the agree
ment for tomorrow’s 15-round
ruckus calls for the winner to get
a shot at Wee Willie Pep’s world
championship (as recognized in
New York). The only thing wrong
with that picture is that Wee Wil
lie meets Sal Bartolo in Boston
for the crown next Tuesday night
—and just suppose Sal takes' it
away from him?
Well, that’s not going to make
much difference to the New York
State Athletic Commission. The
Empire state’s sage swat solons,
who crowned the package of Pep
originally, apparently feel they
can uncrown him, too. So, they’ve
said they wouldn’t recognize Tues
day’s tussle as a title affair—al
though Sal and Willie are meet
ing at the weight and over the
derby route.
Chalky, who once held the crown
until Wee Willie won it running
away last December, is a 2 to 5
favorite. The chalk is noted for
carrying a firecracker in each fist.
So if “Phearless Phil” gets to
close, the Los Angeles veteran
may show him there’s no substi
tute for a good right hand wallop.
This corner thinks he will.
Philadelphia Takes 18 Hits
From Heving, Dean
To Win 10-4
Ripping into Joe Heving and their
ex-teammate, Chubby Dean, for 18
hits, the Philadelphia Athletics
skidded the Cleveland Indians into
sixth place this afternoon by taking
a 10 to 4 victory.
Don Black, who had been given
a local anesthetic before the game
to overcome the pain of sore back,
held the visitors to one run until
the ninth inning, when an abortive
rally produced three runs.

Clyde Jordan hurled and batted
the Firemen to their eighth
straight win yesterday afternoon
over the hard-fighting Copper
smiths in a Hanover softball league
game. The Firemen scored three
runs in the first overtime inning as
Jordan singled to break the tie. A
walk and a mighty triple by Dave
Smith iced the game.
The scheduled Hanover softball
league contest between the Star

The game was cancelled because
six members of the Star-News team

at the high school. The game will

Instead, the Brigade will play
the Coppersmiths.
The Coppersmiths outhit the
Firemen 9 and 7, but poor base

in the game. Dave Smith was the

NEW YORK, June 3—(£*>—Gun

it, but he's started an argument
with the Amateur Athletic Union
—an argument that may or may

The Swedish runner, holder ox
seven world records at distances
from 1,500 t6 5,000 meters, has
sent word back to Stockholm via

him that he’ll not be able to shake

means he’ll miss the national A.

Island, June 19-20.
But the Amateur Athletic Union
has other ideas. Dan Ferris, sec
retary-treasurer of the organiza

Haegg will run in the national
championships or else—meaning
that the Swedish fireman would
face suspension if he declined to

is bound to that agreement by the
rules of the A. A. U. and the In
