Army Elevens and Pros to Clash; No Training Trip, Shorter Major Season Urged
_____a Win, Lose or Draw By FRANCIS E. STAN Apropos o Barnstorming World Series It may not be so easy for proponents of a barnstorming World Series to gain their objective, despite the apparent interest dis played so far by Baseball Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis and the presidents of the American and National Leagues. For one thing, some of the magnates and, perhaps, some of the fans are almost certain to say: "Look here, now, and let’s not overdo this thing. There's a limit to what can be cooked up to aid relief. There's the Ball and Bat Campaign. We've played championship games for the benefit of the Army and Navy Relief Funds. We're going to have two All-Star games next week. Why atrlng out the World Series, which already runs well Into the foot ball aeason?” Now they may have something that is worthy of consideration. One proposal, as you may know, Is to play a 9-game series, Instead of the regulation 7-game set, and turn over the receipts fron\ the extra two games to the service charities. Well, this plan has Its weak points. Years ago the World Series used to be a 9-game affair but It couldn't maintain Interest and this was in a day when there was no war. People wenen't asked to spend at least a dime of every dollar for War bonds, nor pay the stepped-up income tax, nor assume anything like present-day financial obligations. They simply weren't interested, then, In a 9-game series. Two Proposals So Far Not Bulletproof That could be understandable, too. In October the weather 1* not always suitable for baseball. When Washington and Pittsburgh wound up their 7-game W'orld Series in 1925 the final game was played on October 15, and then on a field normally unfit for play. A streak of bad weather can ruin a World Series, especially now when pro football teams and college teams start playing big games as early as September. A second proposal has been made: Have the pennant winners decide the series in 7 games and then go on the road for an exhibition series. This. too. is a lightlv-armored project, susceptible to criticism. When the headlines say, "Yanks Beat Dodgers," baseball will be all over and exhi bitons, rarely Interesting in any form, simply would be marked by the more or less artful dodges of the players to escape meaningless barn storming. In the third and more revolutionary plan proposed probably is the moet meat. Play two games in each of the home teams’ parks and then hit the road for five or maybe seven more games, each to count toward the world championship. That’s the proposal and it has some points. The series players would split up the net receipts of the first four games, as usual, but which team divvies the 60 per cent and which must be con tent with the 40 wouldn't be established until the tour is ended. You Cant Buy Morale With Money Again exhibiting that uncanny talent for sticking our nose into somebody else’ business, we have only one complaint to make, i. e„ to wit and as follows: When the series goes on the road, why not really take it on the '’road,” forget about making money, and give the boys in uniform a chance to see it free? Here's the point. There are tens of thousands of servicemen who never have seen a major league game. There are hundreds of thousands who've never seen a World Series. Suppose a crucial World Series game should pop up in Corpus Christi, or near March Field, or close to Jackson ville? Suppose it was decided to permit a certain number of conscientious, deserving soldiers, sailors, marines and coast guardsmen to watch, on j the cuff? All right, let's say there have been, or will be. plenty of sports spec- j facies designed to raise money for charity. Morale can’t be bought with money and think what it might mean to all the Drafties from Cider City • who are in the Army. The Drafties, Not Stars, Really Are Giving Maybe we're making this too salty and sloppy. Maybe Draftie would .lust as leave drop a nickel in a Juke box. But cn the other hand, maybe the guy will find himself in a little ball park, somewhere in the Southwest, say, and maybe he will say to himself: "Well, I must be quite a guy! I'm , watching the ninth and final game of a World Series, and down there on ! the field are fellows like Reiser and Camilli and Di Maggio and Dickey end the rest. They're doing this for me—and for free." A lot of American boys have been shipped overseas, destinations un known. and many more are awaiting word to pack up and be ready. Those are the Soys who are doing things for the people. Not even the most black-hearted ballplayer can squawk because the series will run < longer and because he'll have to travel to the tank towns. He’s getting 1 his, perhaps by harder work, but the baseball stars aren't giving what those fellows who never saw a World Series stand to give. We'd like to see the brass hats of baseball make it a 9-game or even an U-game World Series and take it on tour, each game meaning some thing and each game affording chances for good soldiers to watch good teams In action—for free. Let the money angle ride. Plenty of money has been raised already, and some of the shows to aid soldiers have been i pretty bad. Why not let them in on a good show? If they don't deserve backing of this sort from America's civilians, then, perhaps they don’t deserve victory. Griffs Happy to Shake West Despite Burden in Boston Listed for Five Games in Three Days in Hub; Have Dropped Eight of Last 12 Battles By BURTON HAWKINS, SUr Stiff Corriipondent. BOSTON. June 30—Through the courtesy of New York Central, the Nats gratefully have been hauled out of the West, where the remnants of their prestige absorbed another rude jolt, but the Nats won’t be considering their retreat a complete and magnificent maneuver until they're chugged into Washington’s Union Station. There the bitter battles to grab a red cap. land a taxi or merely escape the station with anatomy in-* tact have been jolly episodes in the life of the Nats this season, for on the road they've been treated so shabbily that Union Station resem bles a comparative Shangri-La. Washington's travels have broad ened only the length of its term in the American League basement this season, for of their 34 games in for eign parks, the Nats have won only 11. On their recent Journey through the West the Nats lost 8 of 12 games. Fence to Play With. The Nats were Importing a two game winning streak to this his toric village today, though, and Manager Bucky Harris is hoping the power his club displayed in sweep ing a double-header from the Browns on Sunday hasn’t vanished. With Boston's ridiculously short left-field fence as a target for three days, the Nats could have some fun providing they’re in one of their rare hitting moods. With double headers today and tomorrow and a single game on Thursday the Nats won't be lacking opportunity to dent that fence. Operating against the Red Sox in today's twin bill were to be Sid Hud aon and Early Wynn and it was likely to be Hudson's final appear ance at least until the All-Star game at New York July 6. Harris has Informed Joe McCarthy of the Yankees, who will pilot the Ameri can League entry, that Hudson will be fresh and available for duty should McCarthy care to use him. Lacks Impressive Victories. **I don’t know if McCarthy will call on Sid,” says Bucky, who has been selected as an American League coach, “but I believe its only fair to Hudson and McCarthy for Sid to be rested in the event Joe cares to pitch him.” Hudson entered today's engage ment seklng his first triumph in his last seven starts, but his record isn't. as bad as that would indicate. In his last start, for Instance. Sid lost a 2-0, 5-hit job to the White Sox. George Case, who has batted .600 Since being restored to the line-up --- four games ago, will remain in right field for the Nats, at least until he shows signs of lapsing into the in effective hitting that prompted Harris to bench him for two weeks. George Takes Hold. A .320 hitter when his shoulder popped out of place several weeks ago. George returned to duty too soon and his average tobogganed. He wasn’t taking his normal cut. favoring that shoulder, and when Roy Cullenbine was obtained from St. Louis Case shifted to the bench. Shoved into service in the 4-game St. Louis series. George rapidly in seited a bid for regular work. He slammed out 12 hits in 20 efforts, and as lead-off man he was a huge success. He reached base on 14 oc casions and scored six runs. Pitcher Buck Newsom is complain ing a silver plate in his left leg, a relic of his early baseball cam paigning. is paining him so much he may be forced to quit the game but there is a tendency among the Nats to regard the matter lightly. Newsom is noted for his miraculous recoveries. 4 All-Star Teams Of East, West To Tour Nation Redskins Will Meet Soldiers on Coast In First Game By FRANCIS E. STAN. The Army went into the football business today when Grantland Rice, nationally-known sports col umnist and president of the new war football fund, announced that from among “upward of 1,000 known professional and college players” in khaki would be selected a Western eleven and an Eastern team to meet National Professional League outfits. All proceeds. Rice announced after a conference with Maj. Gen. Alex ander D. Surles, chief of Army pub lic relations, will be turned over to the Army Emergency Relief. Rice estimated that more than $300,000 will be raised, not including receipts which will be donated from the annual Chicago all-star game be tween the champion pro team, the Chicago Bears and a squad of grad uated college standouts. Officer*, Enlisted Men te Fly. The Western team will play at least four games and possibly five against National League opponents, while the Eastern club has been scheduled for three games. "There may be more games.” amplified Ray McCarthy, civilian director of sports for the Army Emergency Relief. “The entire program as outlined." said McCarthy, "will take about six weeks, half of which will be spent in whipping the teams into shape.” It was indicated that if the military training of the athletes does not suffer, the two Army teams may meet, and possibly the better eleven will tackle the Navy’s Great Lakes Training Station outfit. "Nothing has been done about that, however,” said Rice. Officers and enlisted men will play on the Army teams, it was said, and the first game will be played on August 30 in Los Angeles between the Western eleven and the Wash ington Redskins. If defense meas ures prevent the game on the Pacific Coast it will be moved either to New Orleans or to Dallas. Schedules of Contests. The Western schedule Is as fol lows . August 30, Washington Redskins; September 5 or 6. Chicago Cardinals at Denver; September 9 <night), Detroit Lions at Detroit; September 13, Green Bay Packers at Madison. Wis; September 30, New York Giants at Syracuse (probable). The Eastern teams schedule so far: September 12. New York Giants at Polo Grounds. New York; Septem ber 16. Brooklyn Dodgers at Jersey City; September 30, Chicago Bears at Boston. No games will be played with pro teams after September 20. when Na tional League championship play will start. When it was pointed out that the Army elevens will have to play with Intervals of only three or four days between games, Rice said: “The schedules are not long and each squad probably will have 50 men. It won't be too hard.” Eighty-six players from the Na tional League, it was revealed by McCarthy, are In the service now. No coaches have been announced, but Maj. Gen. Surles probably will make a statement in the next few days. Some of the noted coaches now in the Army Include Lt. Col. Bob Neyland of the Engineers. a» Norfolk: Maj. Wallace Wade of the field artillery, at Port Bragg, and Col. “Biff” Jones. Tennis Balls Assured, Mid-Atlantic Event To Start July 11 Middle Atlantic officials switched their worries from tennis balls to entrants today as they proceeded with plana for the association's an nual championships at Columbia Country Club, beginning July 11. Plans announced today call for a week-long tournament ending Sunday, July 19, a radical departure from previous years, when the af fair was run off in two or three days. Scheduling of the current tournament was delayed until the Tournament Committee was assured there would be a sufficient supply of balls. Competition is restricted to win ners and runnersup of center tour naments in territory under Middle Atlantic supervision, which em braces Washington, Maryland, Vir ginia and West Virginia. Barney Welsh is expected to de fend his singles title and to team up with Hugh Lynch in defense of their doubles crown. IN'TEBNATIONAL LEAGUE. Syracuse. 2 Jeraey City. 1. Baltimore. 0: Newark 4.

Tribe's Fleming Gains 16 PointS'to Crowd Gordon in Hitting Boosts Average to .346 As Joe Slips to .363; Reiser Tops National By !b» Associated Prui. NEW YORK. June 30 —Les Flem ing. the pudgy young man from Nashville who inherited the Cleve land first-base job, is the hottest thing in major league baseball right now. Fleming, who battered Southern Asociation fences for a .414 average last season, climbed 16 points last week to become the greatest threat to the continued reign of Joe Gor don, New York Yankees, as the leading batter in the American League. while Gordon slipped from .367 to .363. Fleming rapped 12 hits in 18 official trips to the plate for an astounding average of .667 for the week. That barrage lifted him from fourth in the league race to second with a .346 figure. The Broklyn pair of Pete Reiser, center fielder, and Joe Medwick, left fielder, continued to dominate the National League, although both fell off their previous pace. Reiser, boasting an average of .356 a week ago, remains on top with .347. while Medwick holds second with .335. Ernie Lombardi, Boston catcher, and Stan Musial, rookie outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals, both showed big gains for the week, the former climbing to .325 and the latter to .320.

Bob Bensinger still is the champ and anybody caring to chal lenge his right to the No. 1-ranking among the town's junior tennis j players can step up whenever ready and take his licking. The two-legged tornado from Takoma added Brownie Baker to : his list of victims yesterday on the Friends School courts, chopping him down in straight sets, 6—1. 6—2, for his third and last City of Washington crown. Next year tne< freckle-faced fly-swatter manipula tor will be out in long pants with the elders of the game chasing after Barney Welsh. Bensinger also has halves on the doubles crown with John Waits,. jr„ the result of a direct hit «*t Baker and Ed Sachs with high explosives that wrecked the latter pair to the extent of 6—3, 6—2. And while all this was going on young John Bucknell was setting off a few firecrackers of his own, rallying to take the boys' singles chapeau from Le Roy Morgan after dropping the first set, 1—6, 6—2, 6—0. It could be recorded as a double-header for the lad who was bom In far-away Peking. China, and learned to play In Swltserland. for he had to beat a bad case of Jitters before going after Morgan. ! After settling their singles dif ferences the rivals teamed up and thumped Billy Bernard and Bob Smith for boys’ doubles honors, 6—1. 7—5. and this triumph w*as as spectacular as Bucknell s singles vic tory, for the winners had to win the last five games in the second set to overcome a 2-5 handicap. Bensinger Force* Play. Baker wasn’t at his best against Bensinger and that’s akin to send ing Red Riding Hood after a bull. Bobby is all business when the chlp6 are down and he forced the play throughout. Bensinger’s booming baseline shots kept Brownie so deep in his own territory he had few opportunities to take the net. but spent most of his time getting the 1 ball back while Bensinger was set ting him up for the kill. Brownie also hurried like one of Mussolini's heroes in reverse gear. There was no dilly-dallying on either side of the net, but rather the tempo was faster than customary in even preliminary duels. This was entirely unnecessary, as it turned out tliat the Texan wasn't going any place—not with Bensinger play ing watchdog. Baker showed flashes of his best form, especially in the second set when he captured two straight games after Bensinger had amassed a 3-0 lead. Then he passed Bob three times, caught him napping with a high, well-placed lob, and forced him into a couple of net errors. But the champion bounced right back to break his opponent's service on the next game and go on from there to close out the match. Bak er's errors paved the way for his downfall. He was guilty of six dou ble-faults throughout the match, was passed 11 times, netted more than 20 shots and knocked some 15 more out en route to defeat. Bucknell Bewilders Morgan. Bucknell, wild and erratic himself in the first set, settled down like a weighty anchor in the second | and from then on Morgan was in I action only because the rules require ! three sets. Johnny discovered that | Morgan had trouble returning shots when not set for them and pro ceeded to snake a series of wigwag shots at him that had Le Roy going and coming like a revolving door. You expected him to meet himself coming from one shot while going after another. Morgan’s game came apart at the seams in the final cluster as Bucknell continued his same steady play. The new boys’ champ, who succeeds Britt Schweitzer, simply kept the ball deep in his opponent's territory, refused to let him get set and waited for him to bang it out or into the net. Morgan and Bucknell played brC i >— liantly In the final set of their doubles engagement, coming through with amazingly accurate shots to wrin when it aeemed their rivals had the set under lock and key. Bensinger and Waits won about as expected, gaining momentum writh each passing game. Big Coast Elevens May Drop Idaho, Montana Eor Service Games SAN FRANCISCO.

Radical Baseball Plan Backed as War Measure • Problems of Housing, Transportation May Halt Dixie Tours By the Associated Press. DETROIT, June 3C.—The Detroit Tigers came to bat today with pro posals that the baseball season of 1943 be reduced by two months and that the Southern spring training program be abandoned. Offering each as a war measure. General Manager Jack Zeller of the Tigers said he would present his ideas to the annua] midsummer meeting of the American League club owners in New York, July 6. One dovetails into the other, Zel« ler said, with the spring training to be carried on in the park at home during the period which now constitutes the first month of th« playing schedule. Under Zeller's plan, the season also would finish a month earlier. Zeller said he proposed elimina tion of the Southern training tour because of a fear that there might be a housing shortage in the South as far as major leaguers were con cerned next year in view of expand ing military facilities. Furthermore, he said, there should be no intru sion on the Army. Sock at Baseball Tradition. The Tiger boss mentioned, for ex* ample, that the Government was taking over hotels in Miami and Miami Beach, Fla., to house Air Corps trainees. He expressed doubt whether the Tigers' own spring base at Lakeland, Fla., would be avail able in 1943 because the town ha* become a training center for Amer ican and British pilots. Troop movements also may eut down on the railroad space, Zeller said. The proposal to eliminate South ern training is a sock at a hoary baseball tradition and practice, which Zeller admits. He insisted, however, that players could get into condition at home just as well. For the month's training period, Zeller proposed that week ends be given to interleague games between the major league members and week days to the routine drill at home. Zeller conceded that he expected no hasty approval of his sugges tions. but he added: i "After the clubs go a little deeper into the spring training problem, they may decide that they will have to do something along the lines I suggest." No Curb on Publicity Seen. Deprecating the Southern train ing trips as a spur to fan interes\ Zellar said, "I doubt that they have the publicity value that everybody seems to think they have."
