Nats' Greatest Fan Is Mrs. Bobo Newsom
CHICAGO, June 7.—Washington’s most rabid feminine fan, one
of its prettiest and certainly the luckiest, is Kay Newsom, Bobo’s
winsome wife who has missed one Washington game since her blustery
breadwinner rejoined the Nats for a fourth term last year.
On the occasion Mrs. Newsom missed a eame
the Newsoms were involved in shifting their
belongings from Philadelphia to Washington and
Kay’s housewifely instinct demanded baseball be
secondary for a few hours.
Aside from that session of drape-hanging,
silver-stowing and unpacking, however, Kay’s life
has been devoted almost exclusively to the Nats
from the time she parted company with the
adventureless Athletics to Join Washington's
society. *
Mrs. Newsom Is the only player’s wife in the
major leagues who takes all the trips. That’s a
gift from her fast-talking husband, who convinced
Connie Mack it woulp be an inspirational influence -
to have the little lady along at all times. Mr. Mack BnrUn H»wkin*.
agreed to pick up the tab, at Mr. Newsom's suggestion, and that
arrangement has carried over with the Nats.
Bobo is the all-America earache to some, a fun-loving popoff to
others and a shrewd fellow, who bellows frequently to grasp those
headlines to still others, but in Mrs. Newsom he .has the ever-willing
listener who is fascinated by his continuous, sometimes clever and
always loud chatter because most of Bobo's t£lk is of baseball.
Plays No Favorites, Cheering All on Club
Kay loves baseball, but she doesn't like to see Bobo pitch. "I get
too nervous," she explains, but she roots for him from a box near
Washington’s dugout and prays the base hits don't come too frequently.
In that respect she displays po favoritism for she cheers just as
enthusiastically for every other Washington pitcher and no Nat ever
steps to the plate without an encouraging “come on, Joe,” "sock it,
Mickey,” or something similar from Kay.
She’s Newsom’s wife, but she’s the sweetheart of the NatS|because
she’s their most faithful fan. She's a one-gal cheering section who
doesn’t cease when the Nats are taking it on the chin.
Newsom gets a brutal booing in some parks, but it doesn’t bother
Kay. "It used to,” she says, "because of the effect I thought it would
have on Bobo, but it doesn't disturb him and so I don’t let it worry me.
The only time I feel badly is when people make obviously unfair
She is no typical Ladies' Day fan. She knows her baseball and
doesn’t screech insanely at the sight of r pop fly with none on, two
out and the score 10-0. She's one of the few people who knows one of
the Nats’ signals. "Bobo told me one of them,” says Kay. “I've tried
to figure out some of the others, but Just about the time I think I've
stolen a sign I discover I’m wrong.”
Calls Her Mother Most Rabid Fan
On the Nats' last Western trip the club idled a day in Detroit,
but Mrs. Newsom didn’t take advantage of it to catch up on her
shopping. She was at Briggs Stadium that afternoon watchine the
Yankees and Tigers. She sits through batting practice before every
Washington game and on the afternoon of a night game she probably
may be located by a radio listening to a broadcast of the Cards
Giants game.
Kay knew a lot about baseball before she met Bobo. "We lived
outside of Pittsburgh,” says Mrs. Newsom, "and anytime a Pirate game
was on the radio the family had to keep quiet because mother insisted
on listening. She’s the most rabid fan I know.”
She’s married to Bobo because he once pitched a one-hitter
against Detroit. Kay was singing at Wardman Park Hotel then and
when Newsom came in to dinner she said, “Nice game.” Bobo took
over the conversation at that point, naturally, and so they’re Mr. and
Mrs. Newsom.
Chisox Greet Nats as 'Cousins/
Beating Them for Six in Row
By Burton Hawkins
Star Staff Correspondent
CHICAGO, June 7.—The White
Sox may be stumbling to the re
mainder of the league, but to the
Nats they’re the hottest things to
sear Chicago since Mrs. O’Leary’s
cow kicked over that lamp and
touched off the great conflagration.
When the Nats awoke yesterday
morning they found themselves
staring at such headlines as "Wel
come, Cousins,” and "Hi, Friends."
The Nats had lost five straight to
the White Sox, who were in a mood
to welcome Washington after ab
sorbing wallopings from the Phila-'
delphia Athletics.
So the Nats became a bit peeved,
Irked and all that sort of thing.
They pried four runs from Ed Lopat
in the first two innings here last
night and grasped a 4-0 lead, but
today the White Sox still are cham
pions of the Nats, who now have
been beaten six straight times by
Nats Get Strong Start.
It was a,peculiar struggle, for in
the final seven innings Lopat braced
to stop the Nats with two tame hitsi
Meanwhile the White Sox stirred up
four runs off Sid Hudson, who left1
the premises in the fifth inning.!
then finally obtained the winning
run off Tom Ferrick in the ninth
and romped off the field with a 5-4

may be attributed to the pesky Chi
cago club, which has achieved a big
proportion of its 21 triumphs at
Washington’s expense.
It’s a jinx the Nats hope to over
come today when Walter Masterson
will strive for his fifth win against
Johnny Rigney. The Nats and Sox
will clash in a double-header here
tomorrow, with Mickey Haefner and
Chick Piretti slated to work for
Washington. «,
Singles by Buddy Lewis, Tom Mc
Bride and Stan Spence fetched
the Nats a run in the first, and they
fashioned three more in the second
when Buddy Lewis bashed his third
home run of the season into the
lower right-field stands after - A1
Evans and Sid Hudson had singled.
The Nats’ attack, insofar as run
gathering is concerned, ceased with
that lusty blow. Meanwhile the Sox
were picking up runs on Hudson.
They nicked him for a run in *he
second inning on singles by Murrell
Jones, Don Kolloway and Mike
Tresh. Luke Appling sliced the
Nats’ advantage to 4-2 when he:
pumped a home run into the lower1
left-field stands with two out and
none on in the third.
Ohisox Win in Ninth.
A walk to Floyd Baker, plus sin
gles by Dave Philley and Appling,
netted Chicago a run and sent Hud
son to the showers in the fifth.
Philley, who had moved to third on
Appling's single, scored with the
tying run as Ferrick took over and
Jones forced Appling at second.
The 4-4 situation existed until
the ninth. Mark Christman opened
that inning with the Nats’ first hit
off Lopat since the third inning—a
single to left. Lewis fouled to
Tresh, though, and McBride drilled
into a double play.
Baker launched Chicago's ninth
with-a single to left and when Third
Baseman Eddie Yost streaked in
for Philley’s bunt he was consid
erably embarrassed when the ball
popped over his head for a single.
Appling sacrificed and Jones was
passed purposely, in that crisis
Bob Kennedy lifted a fly to Mc
Bride in left, permitting Baker to
race home from third with the win
ning run under a crisp, accurate, but
futile, throw by McBride.

Maybe Billy South worth “knew
something” when he grabbed Johnny
Beasley off the St. Louis Cardinals'
scrap heap and gave him another
chance with his Boston Braves.
Although the sore-armed right
hander has yet to approximate his
1942 form when he won 21 as a
Redbird freshman, he has copped
two in a row for his old boas, South
worth, who now skippers the Boston
They had Beasley in New York
during the week for treatment by a
New York specialist who must have
known what he was doing. In his
first outing since May 8, the 28
year-old “veteran” turned back Cin
cinnati, 5-2.
■ Beasley allowed 11 hits, but he
scattered them along the way and
ail but one were singles. He walked
only two, a great improvement on
his first start, and was able to come
through in the pinches.
Purchased from St. Louis in mid
April, right after opening day,
Beazley defeated Pittsburgh in his
first outing and then worked only a
totbl of three relief innings before
last night’s test. If he can take a
regular turn, even on a once-a-week
basis, he’ll be just what Southworth
needs to make a real pennant threat
of his club. Behind Warren Spahri
and Johnny Sain, the Braves’ pitch- ;,

Beazley Gets Hitting Help. ]
Beaziey had hitting help from 1
Catcher Phil Masi, who hammered 1
a three-run homer off Rookie Kent 1
Peterson in the Braves’ big inning,
the four-run fifth. t
Brooklyn took a half-game lead I
in that wild National League
scramble by defeating Chicago, 6-2, 1
breaking out of a tie with the New s
York Giants, who had moved up «
e”en with the Dodgers in an after- i
noon game 11-inning win over St.
Louis, 7-4. e
Lefty Joe Hatten kept the Cubs t
under control in the Ebbets’ Field i
night game after a four-run second i
inning had ruined Hank Wyse. It
was Hatten’s sixth win. Wyse has- j
tened his own downfall in the sec- j
ond with a wild peg that let in two e
additional runs after Jackie Robin- 2
son’s single with the bases loaded <
had accounted for a pair.
“Big Jawn” Mize kept the Giants
in the ball game with the Cards,
spoiling Howie Pollet’s prospective
shutout with a grandslam homer in
the sixth. Although the Redbirds
came back to tie, knocking Bill
Ayers from the hill, New York
finally won on Willard Marshall’s
homer after Mize and Walker
Cooper walked in the 11th. The
homer came off Ken Burkhart, but
the loss went to Rookie Jim Hearn.
Junior Thompson, the third Giant
hurler, was the victor.
Schultz's Homer Beats Bucs. i
Howie Schultz continued the day’s I
specialty, a game-winning homer, 1
when he hit one into the left-field .
seats with the score tied in the last I
of the ninth at Shibe Park. As a ■
result, the Phils’ Fred Schmidt de
cLsioned Pittsburgh’s Art Herring,
4-3. Herring threw to Just one
batter, Schultz. His last previous 1
defeat was a one-batter job in New ,
York when Lloyd Gearhart nudged
him for a homer. i1

One was followed by Vern'Stephens’ <
fifth homer in the sixth and the sec

eighth. Although Joe Di Maggio f
boosted his average to .362 with a 1
homer, double and single and Bill 5
Johnson homered, the Browns’ Fred 5
Sanford took the pitching decision
over Joe Page, who hadn’t lost since t
April 19. (
Mel Harder received credit for his £
219th major league victory although £
he was knocked from the box by Sam
Chapman’s two-run homer in the t
eighth-inning of Cleveland’s 7-4 t
romp over Philadelphia. Ed Klieman 1
finished, hanging a third loss on Bob -
Savage who failed to survive the
third Inning. Hank Majeski of the

Furgol's Record Follows Golf
That Had Him Ready to Quit
Ed Furgol, whose 63 yesterday in

the lowest competitive score ever
pasted in tournament golf in this
city, said he never has picked up

Furgol found 12 players ahead of
him despite his record assault on

second with 134 and Bobby Locke
among the 135 scorers.
A thoughtless Furgol galleryite
who yelled "For crying out loud,
hit it” when Ed missed a short putt
on the fifth hole of the first round
upset the 28-year-old New Yorker to
the point where he floundered
around in 75. "The fellow shouted
at the top of his voice,” Furgol said.
"I shouldn't have let it bother me,
but it did.”
Late in the first round Furgol
told Bobby Locke, his playing part
ner, that he was flying back to
Detroit that night, but Locke said,
“Don't do that Ed, you're too fine
a golfer and too fine a sport to pick
up.” So Furgol sa'id he took Locke’s
advice and stuck around.

A-AC Yanks Sign Harris,
Prewar Indiana Star
By the Associated Pres*
NEW YORK, June 7.—The New
York Yankees of the All-America
Football Conference today an
nounced the signing of Archie Har
ris, great prewar end and track and
field star at the University of In
diana, for the 1947 season.
Harris made the all-Big Ten and
all-Western teams two years, won
all-America mention in his junior
year and was picked on the Nation’s
second team in his senior year. He
recently was discharged from the
Army Air Forces, where he served
a s a B-25 pilot.
his round and was there until almost
Furgol, who has a slightly with
ered left arm that he cannot
straighten as a result of a broken
elbow that was improperly set, hits
the ball almost entirely with his
right side. He has a two-thirds
backswing and as a result of his
handicap his swing is far from a
model one. Despite that, he is the
eighth leading money- winner among
the pros with a $5,625 total, although
he has played in only one other
summer tournament.
“With a 75 the first day I was in
57th place, I counted ’em,” Furgol
said yesterday, “so there was nothing
for me to do but to try and knock
everything into the hole. I probably
would not have shot the 63 if I had
not been so reckless.”
Furgol was 4 under par for the
first fpur holes of his record round
and he wasn’t satisfied. The reason
was that he missed a 6-foot putt for
an eagle on the fourth hole that
would have-put him 5 under.
Tears Up Back Nine.
His only bogey of the round, three
putts on the fifth hole, put him back
to 3 under and he played par golf
through nine for an out nine of 33.
Furgol came out of.the woods on the
11th for a par after a birdie on 10
and thep knocked in birdie putts
of from S to 20 feet on 13th and 14th.
For the second time in his great
round of golf, Furgol missed a short
putt for an eagle, this one on the
16th, and he added birdies on 17
and 18 from putts of 10 and 15 feet.
A great cheer from a gallery of about
2,000 greeted his final putt on the
18th and another ovation when the
score of 63 was announced.
Locke said the round could have
been 60 and the popular South
African with the gracious manner
seemed as pleased with Furgol's
round as if he (Locke) had made it
himself. M. W. W.
