Robinson and his care free nephews

National league race is no reason
to condemn them utterly.i
The other managers are still
afraid of the bats carried by the

said a friend, after Rogers had
praised Robbie's boys in a discus-

"You don't have to do much base
running on home runs and triples,'
said the Cub manager.I
Possibly he overlooked the fact
that twice on home runs last year
Brooklyn saw the amazing spectacle
of a base runner dashing by a col-
league on the base paths. And
Brooklyn's record of placing three-
base runners on the same base
probably will go down in the an-

PHILADELPHIA, April 24.-(/P)--I
Big Barney Berlinger, the Pennsyl-
vania strong boy, brought the first
day of the Pennsylvania relay car-
nival to a climax late this afternoon
with a record-smashing victory in
the intercollegiate decathlon chain-
A one-man track and field team
all by himself, Berlinger, turned in
the most brilliant all-around per-
formance of his career to outdis-
tance a small field of six rivals and
capture the decathlon for the thirct
straight year.
Leading his nearest rival, Fred
Klauer, of Colgate, by more than
800 points, Berlinger shattered his
own carnival record by a wide mar-
gin and failed by less than 50 points
to beat the American mark held by
Ken Doherty, of Detroit.
Barney finished the 10 events
with a total of 7735.6135 points. His
former carnival mark, set a year
ago, was 7460.308. The listed Amer-
ican record of Doherty at which he
was aiming is 7784.68 and the
world's record is 8053.29, held by the
Finnish ace, Paavo Yrjola.
