Baugh May Play in Redskin-Packer Game in Baltimore Today
Dry Field Likely,
Tribe Underdog
In Benefit Tilt
Washington Eleven
To Unveil Sommers,
245-Pound Center
By Lewis F. Atchison
Home again after a trying cross
country jaunt, the Redskins will
have one last chance at a .500 aver
age for their four pre-season games
today at Baltimore, where they take
on the ponderous Green Bay
Packers at 2:30 p.m.
Sponsored by the Variety Clubs
of Baltimore and Washington, fea
turing the colorful Redskin band
and a wealth of entertainment be
tween halves, the game is expected
to lure a swarm of the faithful
from Washington anxious for their
first peek at the 1947 eleven prior
to the league opening next Sunday
Variety officials are confident the
net proceeds will add up to a hand
some donation for the boys clubs
of the two cities.
The Weather Bureau predicts
some sunshine in the afternoon with
the mercury hovering in the 70’s,
but no rain. A dry field figures to
help the Tribe against the beefy in*
Sommers in Redskin Debut.
The Redskins expect to show off
their latest acquisition, 245-pound
Jack Sommers, a center obtained
from the Los Angeles Rams, and
he should be useful in the middle of
the line. The latest pro fad of
loading the line with five tackles,
planting four fast, husky fullbacks
behind, and leaving the safety zone
to a couple of fleet halfbacks has
played havoc with the Redskin
offense, but Sommers may help put
a stop to it.
Sommers caught Coach Turk Ed
wards’ eye in the Rams’ Intrasquad
scrimmage at Los Angeles last
month when he did the kicking off
and handled the pivot work in ex
cellent style. His 28 years were con
sidered too many by the Rams, who
had younger centers in Fred Nau
metz, 25, Roger Harding, 24 and
Jack Martin, 25. Edwards says Som
mers can be 98 as long as he knocks
down rival linemen.
Sommers is the second player to
come to Washington from the Rams.
The first, Fullback Vince Pacewic.
was sent to Los Angeles on an “if"
deal and reverted to Washington af
ter spending the training season
with the Rams. Pacewic has seen
much service during pre-season
games and will be in evidence today.
oau*H 1U»V OCC Action.
If Sammy Baugh continues to im
prove and shows as much life in
pre-game practice today that he
showed yesterday, he may play part
of the game, Edwards said. How
ever, Baugh will not be at his best
and with Bill Ward, Ernie William
son and Tom Farmer riding the
bench because of injuries the Red
skins will be underdogs.
Jimmy Youel and Tom Mont need
the work they are getting and even
if the Skins lose they stand to profit
by the experience their field gen
erals will get. Youel's passing has
improved sharply since he learned
how to cool out his arm properly af
ter the passing warm-up. Mont has
been somewhat* excitable in his first
appearances against major league
competition, but the former Mary
land star has offset this by his
smooth ballhandling on running
plays. The youngster is getting to
be a magician palming off the
leather and should be a lot of help
to the club.
Hie customers from Washington
also will be straining their necks for
a gander at big Ed Cifers in his new
tackle role, watching for “Bones”
Taylor and Joe Tereshinski at end,
whooping it up for Ki Aldrich in his
comeback at center. There is
plenty to look for, with more than
20 rookies on the roster and Ed
wards hopes the customers like what
they see.
Ex-Redskins Now With Packer*
On the other side of the line the
Redskins will see a couple of former
teammates in Jack Jacobs, who is
doing most of the passing for Curley
Lambeau’s eleven, and Johnny Ko
vatch, an end traded to Green Bay
only last Thursday. Tiny Croft, a
MO-pounder, also started his pro
career in the Tribe’s training camp
but never played a league game for
Ted Fritsch will be there, too. and
the Redskins still remember him
from last year when his powerful
runs wrecked them at Griffith Sta
dium. But the little guy who helped.

This is hardly seasonal, but here’s a future-reference tip to1
motorists from Cliff Bergere, the famed auto racing driver who
dropped by the other day: “When you are trying to put your car in

than the other, pull your hand brake half-way back, before applying
power and your chances of getting even, nonskid traction are far
better’’ . . . Buddy Lewis again will head an All-Star collection of

Time’s piece on Jackie Robinson reveals that Brooklyn's star
rookie was on thfc verge of quitting the Kansas City Monarchs, barn
storming Negro club, at the time Branch Rickey lured him away and
signed him to a contract in organized baseball . . . The grubby life,
says Time, “was a shock to college-bred Jackie,” for the Monarchs

a bath, a bed or a hot meal . . . Have you ever wondered why your
automobile tires build up air pressure on the road, whereas this is
no problem at all to race drivers who whiz around the Indianapolis
Speedway for 500 miles on a steaming hot Memorial Day? ... The
answer is that racing car tires are filled with nitrogen instead of air—
and the pressure built up by nitrogen is negligible.
Our local sportscascers are in big demand these days . . . Bob
Wolff of WINX was engaged to do the sound track for the Davis Cup
movies for Australia and Bill Brundige of WOL, who did a swell job
covering the National Tennis championships until Harry Wismer

Lions play at Pittsburgh in the National League's first title game.
Wolff, incidentally, discloses that Australia’s beaten Davis Cup
team had no gripe when Ted Schroeder, who played earlier in bare
feet, shifted to spiked shoes in the late stages . . . The Americans and
Australians, Wolff says, had an agreement to the effect that any
player could shift to spiked shoes as soon as the sun disappeared

assistant . . . Drive carefully when you start out on these weekly

Nats, Red Sox Split;
Coan Gets 5 lor 5
In Opening Game
By Burton Hawkins
Star Staff Correspondent
B08T0N, Sept. 20.—Washington’s
allergy to Fenway Park, where it
had absorbed eight successive de
feats, vanished in a rash of five
straight hits by Gil Coan here today
in the first game of a double header.
Coan’s clouting lifted the Nats'
Early Wynn to his 17th victory,
6- 3, before Boston won the nightcap,
7- 2.
The Nats' only triumph of the year
here was a smashing success for the
trim Coan, youthful outfielder re
cently imported from Chattanooga.
His perfect plate performance in the
opener consisted of three singles, a
double and a triple as he scored two
runs and drove across two others.
Coan added another single in five
attempts in the second game and
in four games since joining the
Nats has collected 11 hits in 17
times at bat for a fancy .647 average.
Gatehouse Beats Nats.
Denny Galehouse beat the Nats
for the fourth time this season in
the second game, allowing nine
hits as the Red Sox battered Rookie
Hal Toenes and Milo Candini for
14 hits, including two triples and a
single by Ted Wiliams, who also
walked twice and thumped across
t Vt raa rime
The Nats quickly disposed of Earl
Johnson, Boston starter in the
opener. Eddie Yost greeted him with
a single and went out stealing, but
Eddie Lyons, Coan, Tom McBride
and A1 Evans also singled to spray
three runs across before Harry Dor
ish was rushed to the mound.
For the next seven innings the
Nats’ attack consisted exclusively
of Coan, who beat out a bunt and
doubled and singled for the only
hits off Dorish.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox were giv
ing Wynn a tussle. They picked
up a run ln‘ the first inning on
singles by Johnny Pesky and Dom
DiMaggio, a wild pitch and Wil
liams’ grounder which scored Pesky.
Nats’ Margin Sliced.
Boston sliced Washington's ad
vantage to 3-2 in the fourth. Wil
liams forced Di Maggio, who had
singled, but successive singles by
Bobby Doerr and Sam Mele brought
Williams around before Murrell
Jones drilled into a double play.
That situation existed until the
ninth when the Nats fashioned
three runs off Dave Ferris after
two were out. Earl Wooten grounded
out and Wynn singled to center,
but was forced by Cecil Travis.
Buddy Lewis batted for Lyons and
walked and Coan’s lusty triple over
Mele's head in right field scored
hnth mnnpr* ftnpnr.p’jt sin trip
to center scored Coan.
The Red Sox scored their final
run in the ninth when Pesky beat
out a bunt, shifted to second when
Williams tried the same strategy
and was tossed out by Wynn, and
Doerr singled.
Wynn permitted eight hits, while
Coan was the only Nat to get mori
than one of Washington's 11 hits,
Toenes Welcomed Warmly.
Toenes, another Chattanooga
product, was welcomed warmly in
the first inning of the second game
when Pesky's double and Williams’
triple gave Boston a run. The Nats
clipped Galehouse for two runs in
the third on singles by Johnny
Sullivan, Jerry Priddy, Coan and
Mickey Vernon, but the lead
evaporated in the Red Sox third

upper turn the California man

the gap.
Lombardo Trails 75 Yards.
Lombardo made his last try on
the final lap, but It was no good.
Foster got the checkered flag from
the committee on the Coast Guard
cutter Aurora, with Lombardo about
75 yards back. At that there were
only two seconds between them.
The crowd set up a roar as the
two leaders sped across the finish
line. A quarter of a mile back was
