YESTERDAY'S STARS By tha Associated Prats Cats Mich Mis, White Sox—Drove In three runs with a double and single off Hal Newhouser to help Chicago defeat Detroit, fi-4. * Hank Wyse, Cubs—Limited the Reds to three hits In pitching Chicago to a 3-0 triumph over Cincinnati, Outdoors —With Bill Leetcfl Here’s good news for skeet shooters. On June 20, 21 and 22, the Great Eastern Skeet Cham pionships at Lordship, Conn., which were suspended during the war, will be revived and plans are under way to make it the largest and most colorful in the successful his tory of the tour nament. June 20 will be devoted to a 100-target "Renew Ac quaintance" pre liminary all-bore shoot. Saturday will witness the Great Eastern 410-gauge champion ship, the Junior championship and 20-gauge championship, all 100 target events. Sunday will see the staging of four shoulder-to-shoulder championships—the Great Eastern Individual and Class, the Great Eastern women’s, the Veterans', open to shooters more than 60 years of age, and the Great Eastern team, to be shot concurrently with : the all-bore individual. In 1942, when the tournament was last held, George Deyoe of this city was nosed out of individual all bore and high over-all events by H. Lutcher Brown of San Antonio, Tex., in a spirited shoot-off. Deyoe won the 410-gauge title. Team championship honors went to the National Capital Rebels with a score of 481x500, only three targets less than the record set in 1940. Another 55-pound channel bass has been taken at Oregon Inlet, N. C., in a catch of 13 of the big fellows by a party from Portsmouth, Va. Another party took nine of the copper warriors the same day. From Hatteras, N. C., comes news ofr the first channel bass of the season at that point, a 10-pounder taken from the surf by D. J. Naughton of Bal timore, Md. The big fish are hit ting all along the beaches now and many parties from thi$ locality are contemplating trips the balance of this month and through May. Ports along the North Carolina coast report there will be more off shore boats available this year than last. Morehead City is expecting at least two up from Florida and addi tional boats also are expected at Oregon Inlet, Beaufort, New River (Fulchers Landing), Wrightsville Beach and Hatteras. Rates will be about the same, ranging from $25 to $80 per day, depending upon the size of boat, sleeping-aboard facil ities, rent of gear and other services. Generally, an all-day trip to the Gulf Stream, four fishermen in cluded, will range from $65 to $80 per day, with bunks (but not food) provided. Mistakenly, we noted in Sunday’s column that Virginia had not stocked Big Hunting Creek. Instead, we should Tiave written Difficult Run. In past years, Difficult Run has been included in Virginia's stocking program, but was omitted this year. It is In no sense a trout stream where brookies and> rainbows are concerned, although possibly hybrid rainbows would survive for some time. It would, in our opinion, support brown trout. Snake Den and Wolf Trap streams also were omitted from stocking this year. Bill Laateh. TRUCK BODIES ! ALL TYMS—Stoke*, Von,, | lottUrs'—Other* Mode to Order Now GRAMM Trallors in Stock DIAMOND !

Friends' Nine Eyeing I AC Title, Though Players Lack Height By Bill Fuchs Friends, a member of the Inter state Academic Conference which embraces eight private schools In Maryland, Delaware and the Dis trict, boasts one of the smallest baseball teams in the circuit, but it already shows promise of being a strong contender for the crown. Since dropping its opener to Blair, Friends has bounced back to trip Landon, an IAC competitor, Priory and St. John’s. There are just 11 players on the squad, but Coach Dm Swett is optl- j mistic about the remaining league games with St. James at Hagers town on Saturday and St. Albans on May 13. “Sure, we have a small team," Swett admits, “but it’s a well-bal anced team and good on defense." Two of the three regular pitchers nave to alternate at other positions, Sut dual roles seem made to order for boys attending the small school jn Wisconsin avenue, which has suilt up a reputation for turning sut spirited, all-around athletes. Tommy Dean, who was on the football and basket ball teams, plays second base when he’s not bothering spposing batters with his fast ball. Dean shut out Landon, 3-0, and illotted only four hits while beat ing St. John’s, 5-4. He also is a sotent batter, leading the team with 351. Sharing mound duties with Dean ire Duff Smith and Leland Stau ser. Smith, a sophomore, limited Priory to one hit in scoring a 5-0 victory. “Smith's Just 15 years old and ilready he’s nearly six feet tall and weighs close to 170 pounds,” Swett says. “He’s going to be a big boy ind a very good pitcher.” Smith ilso plays right field. “The best all-around player,” 3wett tells, “is Mike Maloney, first jaseman. And Craig Stone, I think, s as good a center fielder as any >ther in the city.” Second Baseman Dick Stimson, 3hortstop Jimmy North, Third Baseman Pete Farrell, Catcher Ed Walker and Outfielders Arch Hut son and Mick Myer round out the team.

(Uofc for Our Sign) DU. 8875 | Lane's Surprise Move Ousts Mahoney ?s Md. Racing Chief n»« - a-1_.«—■ m—_ mj TTV# AMOCKITM r fMS BALTIMORE, April 22.—George, P. Mahoney, chairman of the Mary-' land Racing Commission since 1945 and outspoken crusader against shady turf practices, had his walk ing papers from the Free State's Governor today. In a surprise announcement de scribed by Mahoney as “very dis tressing news,” Gov. William Pres ton Lane, Jr., disclosed last night he would replace the present chair man with Stuart Symington Janney, Jr., attorney and gentleman Jockey from Glyndon, Baltimore County, on July 1. Janney recently won the My Lady’s Manor point-to-point race aboard his champion Jumper Win ton, placed sedand in the Grand National Steeplechase at Butler, Md., and hopes to win the Mary land Hunt timber race Saturday. Center of Controversy. ssanoney, neaa oi a Baltimore contracting firm, became a center of controversy during his tenure as chairman, a post he reached after serving on the three-man commis sion since 1941. His foes—among them powerful Maryland racing interests—con tended that his widely noted cam paigns against horse stimulations and other practices painted an un fair picture of the sport. His sup porters replied he had made racing in Maryland “the cleanest" any where in the Nation. Suspension of several trainers after alleged horse dopings, dis covery of a fixed race at Pimlico re sulting in the barring of seven Jockeys, and a number of litigations against the Racing Commission were high lights in its enforcement activities under Mahoney’s leader ship. The commission Introduced the compulsory receiving-barn system at Maryland tracks, coupling it with biological tests before and after every race to prevent drugging of horses. A threatened boycott of the State’s tracks by the powerful Horsemen’s Benevolent anil protec tive Association last fall was avert ed only when the commission agreed to relieve trainers from responsible ity should draggings occur despite the bam system. Reached by teepnone at Lexing ton, Kwhere he was'attending a meeting of the National Association of State Racing Commissioners, the outgoing chairman declared that “I have not been notified” by the Gov ernor of his decision. “It would be imprudent for me to make a statement now, while I am here on business for the State of Maryland,” he added. Gov. Lane, in disclosing the pro jected switch, said that “in view of the discussions in the newspapers of my Intentions with respect to this office, I have concluded that it is best for me to make an announce ment at thl? time”—more than two months before expiration of Ma honey’s term. Janney, a director of the Mary land Horse Breeders’ Association, served as a Marine Corps officer during the war and is a member of a prominent Maryland law firm. Suburban Softball Loop Calls Meeting Tonight Managers of teams entesed in the Suburban Softball League, spon sored by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Com mission, are requested to meet tonight at 7:30 at the Silver Spring Liquor Dispensary to adopt schedules for the season.
