The Sports Trail
By WHITNEY MARTIN
By WHITNEY MARTIN
NEW YORK, July 17.—(tf>—We’re
just back from one of those annual
ego-deflating experiences, some
times called a vacation. Returning
and expecting to find you col
leagues tottering and reeling from
the strain of trying to keep things
going without you, it’s a little dis
concerting to be greeted with
bland indifference and the query:
“oh, you bee* away? Thought
there was something missing
around here.”
Anyway, it's a little bit harder
than usual to get back into the
groove, or maybe it should be rut,
than usual this year, as due to a
newspaper deliverymen’s strike we
saw papers only at scattered in
tervals and thus lost our bearings
on current sports events.
We did siphon the information
from the almost dry wells that
everything was not fragrant in
Flatbush as the Dodgers had fallen
upon evil days and where once they
had the lead in the National League
they now have the lead in their
shoes and are falling back in dis
order. Their pitchers are being
routed instead of going the route.
We also learned the Chicago Cubs
are giving the league fits, and that
the Detroit Tigers are in the throes
of a slump which perils their Amer
ican League leadership. Maybe
from their standpoint if they must
have a slump now would be the
best time as they’ll have time to
recouperate.
We leaned with much satisfaction
of the debut of Hank Greenberg
in the Tiger lineup and the fact
he cracked out a home run in his
first game will do wonders to allay
the apprehensions of other ball
players in the service tha. they
might be duds when they tried to
come back.
We also got the grapevine news
_ I
that the race horses virtually were
tied to the tracks at which they
now are operating, due to an ODT
ruling banning shipment of the crit
ters. We don’t imagine the horses
would mind much if they were
walked from Jamaica to Belmont
or some other nearby track We
understand that’s the way the
horses got from here to there for
races in England. It’s the guys
who would have to lead them who
would object to the bunion derby.
The rumors afoot that Joe Dimag
gio is soon to be discharged from
the Army also sifted through the
news void. If he is, and returns
to the Yankees soon enough, it
might make quite a difference in
the American League race. One
man often can make or break a
team, apd we imagine if the Car
dinals had Stan Musial available
they’d be out in front right now.
That Byron Nelson won the P.
G. A.' championship was leaned al
so, but that wasn’t exactly news.
If he hadn’t won it would have
been. He also has come up with
a lame back, which seems to be
a hazard of the profession. Craig
Wood, Sam Snead, and now Nel
son. Maybe if we could get someone
to twist our back out of kilter we
could play better golf. All the of
fere we get, though, are from
guys wanting to wring our neck.
In the absence of newspapers we
had time to peruse various service
publications, and the Pacific Leath
neck comes up with an item that
indicates there just ain’t no justice
as they say. It concerns Sgt. Heinie
Mueller, former major league out
fielder, and gives his opinion that
the last six years have been the
toughest of his career.
“Three years with the Phillies
and then three more with the ma
rine Corps,” he explains. “That’s
what I call rugged.”_

CARDS NIP BRAVES
IN NINTH INNING
ST. LOUIS, July 17—(J3)—Emil
Verban singled in the last half
of the ninth inning to bring home
Ray Sanders with the winning run
as the St. Louis Cardinals turned
back the Boston Braves 3 to 2,
and gained a full game in their
drive towards first place.
Charlie Barrett, former Boston
property, won his 12th game as
he spaced nine hits among his
ex-teammates. Tommy Holmes
doubled in the eighth for his *irst
hit in three games.
The Cardinals also got nine hits
off the pitching of Nate Andrews.
They took a lead in the second
inning when Verban brought home
Sanders with a single. The Braves
scored twice in the fourth on
doubles by Charlie Workman and
Vince Shupe and a single by Butch
Nieman.
In the eighth inning the Cards
made their 80th double play of the
year and it was their 80th game.

LOWLY PHILLIES
DOWN CINCINNATI
CINCINNATI, July 17— UP) —
Dick Mauney, the Philadelphia
Phillies’ righthanded pitcher, threw
a three-hitter at the Cincinnati
Reds tonight and won his ball
game 3-1, in a few hours after
he received word that his wife
gave birth to a second son in Con
cord, Mass.
The cellar-dwelling Phillies open
ed up on Joe Bowman, an ex
American Leaguer who has won
seven and lost two for Cincinnati
since coming to the senior loop,
in the first inning and got two
runs.
Walter Flager, an ex-Redleg,
opened the game with a single,
Marion Antonelli got on safely on
Eddie Miller’s error and then Bow
man hit Jimmy Wasdell in the
head as Wasdell ran for first on
an infield roller to permit Flager
and Antonelli to score.
The Reds got one of these back
in their half of the first inning
on Dain Clay’s single a passed
ball and Frank McCormick’s single.

CHICAGO, July 17—(JP)—Husky
Bill Voiselle cooled off the ram
paging Chicago Cubs with a five
hit performance as the New York
Giants ended a five game losing
streak by shading the National
League pace-setters, 2-1, before a
paid crowd of 9,150 today. One
wild inning by Paul Erickson gave
the Giants both their tallies to
snap a Bruin winning streak at
five and hand Chicago only its
second setback in 18 starts.
Erickson also allowed only five
hits but three walks, a wild pitch
and a single by Dan Gardella
with the bases loaded in the fourth
settled the issue. The three passes
were all Erickson issued in the
game.
Four of the five hits off Voiselle,
who gained his eleventh victory
against eight defeats, were two
baggers. Three of them were lead
off clouts, but each time the Giant
right-hander quickly doused the
threat.
The lone Cub tally came in the
second inning when Phil Cavar
retta’s grounder went through first
baseman Dan Gardella for a two
base error and Paul Gillespie
singled him home.

New Club Record

A new club record was regis
tered with the New Hanover Fish
ing club Monday night, when Lt
H B. McLaughlin of Bluethenthal
Army Air Base, fishing with a
party at Topsail Inlet, landed a
38-nound drum.
This fish tops the previous rec
ord for the season, which, in
cidentally, was set by Lt. Mc
Laughlin’s commanding officer,
Col. C. T. Edwinson, who landed
a 37 pound, two ounce bass.
Included in the party with Lt.
McLaughlin were Lt. C. R. Clonts,
also of Bluethenthal field, Lt. Ken

CHESHIRE SLATED
FOR MOUND DUTY
Buccaneers Seeking Re
venge Against Fort
Bragg Aggregation
Lefty Louis Chesire. plump port
sided pitching ace of the Wilming
ton Pirates will liurl tonight's
game for the Buccaneers as they
seek rpvenge from the 32nd artil
lerv Corp from Fort Bragg at
Lp?ion Field at 8:30 o’clock.
Cheshire, the colorful southpaw
who often has much more “stuff”
than control, will be out to snare
his seventh victory of the season.
Tn his last outing against the Cam')
Davis club he turned in a two-hit
performance, the big left-hander
used his sharp breaking curves and
blazing fast ball to retire 13
batters via the strikeout route.
Spasmodic lapses in his control
seldom trouble the amiable Ches
hire. However, as he usually is
able to work himself out of most
difficulties by settling down to
quell the uprisings with several
opportune strike-outs. Lefty s ap
pearance on the mound invariably
helps the contest attendance, as the
baseball fans know there’ll never
be a dull moment with the husky
chunker serving up his deceptive
siams. ,, , ,
The Bragg club is well-heeleo
with former professional perform
ers and has compiled an excelled
record while playing some of the
top service teams in this state.
Kite has not announced his
starting line-up but it will probably
be as usual. The clubs manager
also said he was trying to sign up
a well known sports star. If hi?
plans go through this man will
appear in the line-up.
Pate Fish who is back in uni
form after being injured in a game
with Fort Bragg a few weeks ago
will be on hand if Cheshire fails
to tame the red hot soldiers.
Cheshire who is the property of
the Boston Red Sox will lock horns
with another American leaguer,
Charlie Fisher, in tonight’s affray
If the weather permits a large
crowd is epected to witness the
contest.
The Soldiers’ line-up was not an
nounced but will probably be as in
the last game.
Charlie Willard, Pirate short stop
and out fielder is still holding the
Batting honors for the Bucs, he is
belting .352. Brody Stanley is fol
lowing Willard by two points, slug
^ OEA
Stanley is really the leading hit
ter whereas Willard is only sub
stitute player. Roy Lamb is well up
on the Averages with .322. Lamb
is also leading in the most Home
runs, he has blasted out two four
ibaggers and several other extra
base hits. Snag Allen lowered his
average in the last game from .357
to .319.
Lefty Cheshire is leading in the
most strikeouts. The big left hand
er has whiffed 41 batters followed
by Pate Fish with 27. Johnny Wil
bourne who has had some bad
breaks this season has only truck
out 27.

WADE DISCHARGED,
RETURNS TO D E
DURHAM, July 17.— UP) —Lt.
Col. Wallace Wade, who arrived
back in this country July 5 after
15 months service overseas, has
been separated from the Army and
will return to Duke University.
It was announced at Duke today
that on the suggestion and recom
mendation of Mr. Wade he will,;
after a short vacation, resume his
duties as director of athletics and
physical education and that Ed
mund M. (Eddie) Cameron has
been appointed Head coach of foot
ball.
Mr. Wade received his separation
papers Sunday at Fort Bragg. He
is now at his home on the Duke
campus. Mr. Wade has long been
greatly interested in full and wise
physical training program for all
college students, he said tod,
and his observations and ex
perience in Army training centers
and actual warfare have profound
ly convinced him of the needs of
an expanded program to meet this
service for post-war youth in his
respect.
Mr. Wade was physical edu
cation director and head football
coach from the time he came form
Alabama to Duke in 1931 to the
time he voluntarily entered the
Army as a major in March 1942.

Duke in 1926, has been acting di

Pieretti And Dinges Are
Top Major League Findsj
--- i
By JACK HAND
NEW YORK, July 17 — (^) —
Marino Pieretti of Washington and
Vance Dinges of the Philadelphia
Phillies today appear the prize
picks of 21 minor leaguers drafted
by the majors last winter at a
cost of $152,500.
Pieretti, whose selection threat
ened ot start a baseball civil war,
has won nine and lost five for the
up and coming senators. Inclusion
of the midget-sized rookie in the
list of Ossie Bluege’s starters gives
the Nats the, best hurling staff in
the loop. He has proved a cap
able helping mate to Dutch Leon
ard, Roger Wolff, Mickey Haefner
and Johnny Niggeling. Only Leon
ard tops him in total victories and
he is first in hours and innings of
work on the Washinton staff.
When Clark Griffith drafted the
mighty mite from Portland, Presi
sident Bill Klepper of the Beavers
hollered like a wounded gladiator
and claimed he had lost a $75,000
sale prospect for only $7,500. How
ever, nobody bought Pieretti be
fore the draft deadline and so all
was above board. This particular
case resulted in a threat of a third
major league from the Pacific
Coast loop and demands for high
er draft prices, a matter still un
settled and sure to provoke trouble
at the 1945 winter meetings.
in rf np Knttinrt Q1 Q ni
among National League hitters, is
an even more surprising "click”
in the big show as most of his
previous experience was in the
class A eastern league. Although
the Phils selected Dinges from
Louisville of the American Asso
ciation, he played only 11 games
there and spent most of 1944 with
Scranton, Pa., where he hit .323.
Herb Pennock, head of the
Phillies, knew the speedy young
ster when he had charge of the
Boston Red Sox chain system and
promptly picked him out of the
hat when the sox failed to buy bis
contract from Louisville.
Only four other graduates of the
class of 21 are doing regular duty
in the majors and all are pitchers.
Leroy P. Fund of Columbus has a
3-2 record for Brooklyn while tom
Seats, a 25-game winner for San
Francisco, is all even at 4-4 for
the Dodgers, Bill Emmerich of
Rochester, picked by the New
York Giants, and Charley Sprull
of Milwaukee, now with the Phill
ies, each boast 3-5 marks.

Him and His Memoirs
WOODCOCK WINS
BRITISH TITLE
LONDON, July 17. —(M— Bruce
Woodcock, 24-year-old railroad
worker, knocked out the Veteran
Jack London in the sixth round
of a scheduled 15-round bout to
night to wki the British and em
pire heavyweight boxing champion
ship.
A crowd of 38,000 that paid from
$1 for standing room to $50 for
ringside seats packed the Totenham
football grounds in North London
to see the fight. It was Britain’s
first major outdoor fight during
the war.
Young Woodcock who gave away
33 pounds to the chunky 215-pound
champion, struck swiftly shortly af
ter the sixth round opened, knock
ing London half way through the
ropes with a right to the chin be
fore finishing him off.
The end came so suddenly that
both the crowd—and the champion
—seemed bewildered. A match with
a leading American heavyweight
had been ballyhooed as one of the
prizes of tonight’s bout, but
Promoter Jack Solomons said he
wasn’t ready to make any an
nouncement now.
Speaking of a possible visit to
the United States. Woodcock’s man
ager, Tom Hurit, said “nothing
tangible at present has come from
America but we should be in
terested in any offer.”
BROOKLYN WINS
FROM BUCS, 5-2
PITTSBURGH, July 17.— (JP) —
The Brooklyn Dodgers took ad
vantage of the Pittsburgh Pirates’
sloppy fielding to win the last game
of a series 5 to 2, before 20,148
fans tonight.
Brooklyn combined three Pitts
burgh errors and a single to score
two runs in the fourth. Goody
Rosen started off with a single
but was forced by Augie Galan.
Augie took second when Pete Cos
carart fumbled Dixie Walker’s
grounder and scored on an error
by Nick Strincevich. Walker scored
on Frankie Gustine’s error.
The Bums added another in the
seventh on one hit, the Pirates’
on two singles, Rosen’s triple and
two more walks.
