FARRELL SMITH COMMENT:
Indians Find Pennant Race Tough
By FRED KATZI

'A'

Crowns Taken

By Sig Eps, Strauss

(This article was written following
a series of interviews in the Cleveland
Indians' dressing room after the De-
troit-Cleveland game Monday night.)
DETROIT - The atmosphere
was as cheerful as a Charles Ad-
dams' cartoon.
The Cleveland Indians had just
been manhandled by the Tigers
Monday night, 11-5, and no sound
above a low murmur was audible
in the visitors' clubhouse of Briggs
Stadium.
The Indians' braintrust, man-
ager Kerby Farrell and coaches
Eddie Stanky and Mel Harder,
were just sitting in a corner of
the room, staring blankly into
their lockers.
A Quiet Scene
It was only one loss in a sea-
son's slate of 154 games, but an
onlooker couldn't help realizing
the intentness with which these
men go about their job of produc-
ing a pennant-winner for Cleve-
land:
It took only fifteen minutes for
most of the players to dress into
their civilian clothes and head
back to the Sheraton-Cadillac ho-

tel. A few men remained, and Al
Smith and Larry Raines sat quiet-
ly discussing the night's activity.
Smith, the Indians' centerfield-
er and always a dangerous man at
the plate, although he's hitting
only .256 right now, lamented,
"This club here (Detroit) always
gives us trouble."
No Let-Ups
"One of the big things about
playing with a top club like
Cleveland is that the seven other
teams in the league always save
their best pitchers for us. There's
never a let-up."
Farrell had just gotten out of
the shower and was toying idly
with a scorecard. When asked
what teams have given the In-
dians the most trouble he said de-
jectedly, "They've all been tough.
We defeat somebody, we don't
beat them. When we win it's by a
run, and when we lose it's by a
whole flock."
Good Rookies
He brightened up considerably
when the topic came around to his
rookies.
"We have nine men up from

f - - - - __ - - -- - -

triple-A ball, including' Raines
and Bud Daley, who has turned in
three real good ball games."
The loss of Herb Score, whom
Farrel dubs "the best pitcher in
baseball" along with Bob Lemon,
who will be out for at least three
weeks with a pulled thigh muscle,
has forced Farrell to use Don Mos-
si and Daley to complete his "Big
Four."

By STEVE SALZMAN
The social fraternity "A" soft-
ball championship was annexed
by Sigma Phi Epsilon yesterday
afternoon, as they outlasted Delta
Tau Delta, 4-2, .at Ferry Field.
A fine pitching duel developed,
between Cal Atwood of the Sig
Eps and Cal Haywood of the Delts,
as they matched each other pitch
for pitch until the sixth inning.
At that time, DTD was leading,
2-1.
Three-Run Homer
With two men on base and two
out in the bottom of the sixth,
Sig Ep's Rich Crawford belted a
line drive over the left fielder's
head for a three-run homer.
Atwod gave up only four hits,
while Haywood yielded five.
In Residence Hall "A" first-
place finals, Strauss beat Ander-
son, 7-1, to win the championship.
Frank Baffle, the bespectacled
righthander who has been very
successful throughout the season,
came through with one of his best
performances of the year, strik-

ing out six while being tagged for
only three hits.
The big inning for Strauss was
the fourth, during which they hit
five straight singles and scored an
equal number of runs. Ralph
Forbes ruined Balle's bid for a
shutout in Anderson's half of the
fourth with a home run.
In a game played last Friday,
Phi Kappa Tau beat Tau Delta
Phi, 11-8, to take the second-place
"A" title. Bill Powell's triple in
the eighth inning broke up the
ball game.
In a second-place "B" semifinal,
Sigma Phi Epsilon defeated Tau
Kappa Epsilon, 20-9.

Fran LeMire, all-sports star of
Lambda Chi Alpha in the social
fraternity league, was selected as
the Intramural Athlete of the
Year yesterday.
LeMire, who earned the same

award last year, competed in al-
most every sport for LCA. His
outstanding achievements were
winning the all-campus paddle-
ball singles championship, and
earning the quarterback berth on

the social fraternity all-star foot-
ball team.
Falls Short
However, LeMire's achievements
weren't enough to hoist LCA into
the lead in the social fraternity
league.
Sigma Phi Epsilon, aided by vic-
tories in the "A" and "B" softball
playoffs, holds a 10-point lead
over Sigma Chi in a neck-and-
neck championship race. The out-
come rests on the finals in tennis.
Gomberg Repeats
In the residence hall league, the
"Big Reds" of Gomberg have had
another title clinched since earli-
er in the spring. They have a 1920-
1484 lead on second-place Huber,
with the final totals again pend-
ing the tennis playoffs.
Nu Sigma Nu repeated as chamn-
pions in the professional frater-
nity division, claiming more than
half of the league titles in various
sports.
'Kids' Win Again
The Seldom Seen Kids, leaders
in the independent league, are also
repeats from last year. They were
challenged all the way by Evans
Scholars, who finished on the bot-
tom end of a 1164-1076 count.
In the international league Chi-
na finished the season with a
slight edge over India.

Homecoming has come and gone. Fact is, so has just about everything else
-except Finals and Home-Going. And they can be rough. But here our man has
had it out with himself. He's taking the Resolute Step - the one calculated to
make Home-Going a cinch.
How can Home-Going be a cinch? Elementary. Our man recognizes that
his biggest problem is What To Do With Winter Clothes, and he's called in
Greene's Cleaners to solve it. Their solution - Handi-Hamper box storage -
means that he can unload his closet-full of winter stuff on Greene's until next
Fall. Here's how it works:
Our man calls Greene's for one of those fabulous Handi-Hampers. Into
it he packs all the clothes he won't wear until Summer ends - clothes he would
ordinarily pack up, take home, have cleaned, pack up and bring back come
Fall. But now he just turns the Handi-Hamper over to Greene's. They clean the
lot, at their regular cleaning prices, and store everything on hangers in their
vault until our man calls for them. The storage cost? Just $4.95, or a little over a
dollar a month during vacation, and credit terms can be arranged.
Our man is delighted. You will be, too.
Call Greene's, NOrmandy 2-3231, or stop in at the main plant on East Lib-
erty, or the student store on South University.

Every man wants comfort-as well as distinc-
tive good looks in shoes! This genuine Hand-
sewn Bostonian Moccasin delivers both! Here's 1
a shoe a man can really relax in-year after yearl
