Negro American
League Launches
Second Half Race
CHICAGO, July 13—The Negro
American league will open its sec
ond half this week with the saVne
four teams with which it started
the season. The defunct Chicago
American Giants and Philadelphia
Stars did not return to the fold
as may have beer, expected.
The four teams are the Kansas '
City Monarchs, champions of the
first half; Birmingham Barons,
Memphis Red Sox and Indianapolis
Clowns, defending champions.
Second half play gets under way
this week-end with tl) 2 Birming
ham Black Barons playing host to
the Indianapolis Clowns and the
Kansas City Monarchs home to the
Memphis Red Sox.
With incomplete returns in for,
the first half, according to statis
tics of the Howe News Bureau, it
appears that the Monarchs are the
class of the league with four of
the top seven hatters in Ernest
Banks, Ernest Johnson, Duke Hen
derson and Juan Armenteros and
three of the six best pitchers, John
Jackson, Dagoberto Nunez and
Gene Richardson.
The Monarchs also lead the
league in fielding. The Monarchs
are a youthful lot with only one
player, old reliable Tmr Cooper
over 30 years ago.-Cooper is 32.
Leading box office attraction an
pears to be the Clowns, thanks t;
their female second baseman, Miss
Toni Stone. She usually plays the
first two or three innings of the
game, then veteran Ray N°G, the
league’s leading batter, takes ever.
Miss Stone, although not a power
ful hitter by any mean.’, has on
paper a .3G1 average with 13 hits,
all singles, in 36 +!mes at bat.
Whether her hits are the results
of generous score-keepers or abili
ty can be decided by fans who see
her.
The Black Barons, relying on r
number of veteran NAL players,
appear to be the only team able
to challenge the Monarchs. The
Memphis Red Sox, relying on a
youth movement, are yet a bit
| green.

CLOSEUP
By FRITZ POLLARI)
NEW YORK— (Global) —This
could be Jackie Robinson s last
year as an active baseball player,
despite the fact that he has repeat
edly said he feels he has a few
more years of active participation, j
It is hardly likely that he will
seek to remain in the game in any
other capacity.
Robinson has grown fat and he ,
shows unmistakably signs of con- j
stant irritability. Robinson’s grow- |
ing fat is not only physical. He
is quite wealthy, and has numerous
irons in the fire. His prestige is
at its peak and he could command
a top bracket salary in any num
ber of industries. He can be ex
pected to do differently from Joe
Louis. ' He will get out while his
name is worth a lot of money.
Jackie has been a lucky fellow.
; For the first year or more that he
was in organized baseball, he was
forced to take a great deal of
abuse. When the wraps were fin
ally taken off him, he neatly blew
his top on several occasions. Some
of those who had supported him
all the way and defended his .ac
tions at every turn, soon began
to tire of his heckling. Several
writers threatened to “open up’’
hall game, known as the East-West
Classic, will be played this year.
Although some sports writers are
asking that it be played in another
city, the game will return to Chi
eago Sunday, Aug. Id, for the 21st
time. Comiskey Park on Chicago’s
southside will be the scene of bat
tle.
Stars of the West lead the series
12 games to 8. The teams will fea
ture the best players of the four
squads in the NAL.

on him if he didn’t settle down.
Robbie grew surly and resentful.
He seems near the breaking point.
Last Sunday when he was tossed
out of the game at the F’olo
Grounds, he appeared just about
ready to blow up. Even now, '
Jackie cannot go as far as his
teammates or members of other
teams. The race problem has not
yet been solved.
Speaking about Joe F^ouis, the
for m e r champion completely
missed the boat when he failed to
stay out of the ring after the sec
ond Walcott fight. He was on the
crest of his popularity and could
have had almost anything he asked
for. F!e could have headed a busi
ness and made thousands of dol
lars just for the use of his name.
But the thought otherv i c a d the
once “big man” of the boxing
world, perhaps the greatest idol
the Negro has ever produced, is
truly now just another Joe.
The former Doxing champion’s
troubles, however, were aggravat
ed by other causes. Once he got
accustomed to the plaudits of the
crowds, the attention of women,
fine clothes and hig times, he
| couldn’t stay out of the limelight.
Though not as obvious as Jackie,
if Robinson is a “showboat” then
Louis was one too, but in a quieter
j way. Jackie has husbanded his
money far better than T^ouis; his
| wife helped more than Marva
1 helped Joe. Rachael likes a good
i time in a different way—she has
permitted Jackie to be the public
figure, and has got her pleasure
i and happiness out of the pood for
; tune of her husband. Marva
; shared the spotlight with Joe and
on occasion sought to grab it from
I him.
Jackie and his wife apparently
j work as a team; they even discuss
I and decide on business matters.
| Louis’ advice came almost alone
from his cronies. Jackie set up
a business organization to bundle
his affairs, and the men who
handle them are responsible for
the success of his business. They
must account for its operation.
Louis’ affairs were handled by his
friends and on a rather personal
basis.
So, as the time approaches when
it appears Robinson will leave the
game, he will leave with his pres
tige still high and his business in
good order. Pity the same could
not be said of Joe Louis, one of
the nicest guys ever to take part
in any sport anywhere.
