Pilots Agree
On Sox Threat
In American
CHICAGO HI - Managers Casey
Stengel and Paul Richards were in
agreement today: You can’t count
the Chicago White Sox out of the
American League pennant picture
despite their loss of e clutch
double-header to the New York
Yankees yesterday.
Stengel was dated after 4-2 end
34 wins by Us Yanks dropped the
Sob out of any immediate leader
ship contention. The Chicago dub,
had ft won both ends, would have
been only two games beck. Mow
the Sox are six games out
“Those were big ones for us,”
grinned Stengel after the double
victory. “Wo were playing our best
and the pitching was tremendous.”
Bd Lopat won the first game,
allowing eight hits in recording Us
10th victory against one loss. Vic
Raschi won Us seventh against
four losses in the nightcap, hurling
a deft two-hitter.
“I’ve said all along that the
White Sox are the team to beat,”
declared Casey. “And I dill say it
“Yon can’t forget about them.
They're going to keep playing good
ben because that guy (Richards)
isn’t going to let them get down.”
Rickards and Us players were
disappointed over the *Vn i ) 1 t loss
but were by no means despairing.
“We've got • longer way to go,”
ptiilosophlui the taU manager of
Am Sac, “end well juri hive to
get et it'*
He pointed oat that at one time
tiw Sex were 13 garnet -off the
Yankee pace aad that in his opin
ion they were capable of moving
Bp again.
"We’re e good solid ball dub
aad I’m confident well held up
through tke stretch. The fuostion
ia: Can the Yankees?”

a son of tho groat Count Fleet
and a graadaaa cf Rrigh Count,
both darby wknors.
Count Turfs greatest day was
May S, MSI, whan ho earned
Amiri's green and-gold aflks to a
four-length going-away victory at
aneiant Ctarehffl Downs.
Ha was a 15 to 1 riot Ironically

until Saturday, when he boomed
through tho top of tho stretch and
won tho Questionnaire by almost
four lengths. And ho was 15 to 1
