5-1 Win Over Phillies
PHILADELPHIA - (A') - The
grimly-determined New Y o r k
Giants pounded out a 5-1 victory
over Robin Roberts and the Phi-
ladelphia Phillies last night to
close within one game of the
first place Brooklyn Dodgers.
While the Giants were win-
ning, the wobbly Dodgers dropped
a twi-night doubleheader to the
fourth-placenBoston Braves at
Boston, 6-3 and 14-2.
THE GIANTS now are closer to
the National League leaders than
they have been since May 19
when they trailed the Dodgers
by two games despite a fifth-
place slot in the League stand-

throw his weight around in the
defensive backfield where the
tough tackler can do the most
damage to Michigan's opponents.

ALBANY, N. Y. - (P) -- Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey yesterday ap-
pointed a new boxing czar for New
York State and demanded that
the fight game clean house.
In one breath, Dewey an-
nounced the resignation of for-
mer amateur boxer Eddie Eagan
and appointed Robert J. Christen-
berry, New York City hotel keep-
er, as chairman of the State Ath-
CHRISTENBERRY, 52, is pres-
ident of the Hotel Astor. He for-
merly was a sports writer and
U. S. consular official. Eagan,
also 52, had held the $9,378-a-year
post since 1945.
In his letter of resignation,
Eagan said he was quitting be-
cause of the pressure of his
private law practice.
In appointing Christenberry,
Dewey detailed a program to im-
prove boxing. By implication, he
rapped the International Boxing
Club, which virtually has a mono-
poly on major ring events.

"EVERY AVENUE must be kept
open so that free competition ex-
ists in every licensed club in the
State, with equal opportunity for
every boxer," Dewey declared.
Points in Dewey's "cleanup pro-
1. Fullest reliance must be
placed on the Medical Advisory
Board and other scientific agen-
cies in order to reduce hazards of
2. The members and profes-
sional staff of the State Athletic
Commission and their accumulat-
ed experience must be utilized to
3. "All the business of profes-
sional boxing must be conducted
in the open. Whenever major
questions affecting the sport arise,
they should be determined by full
and free discussion.."
