1940 Olympics Will Be Best
Yet Held, Brundage Predicts


troit Tigers galloped into third place
by smiting the previous occupants,
Cleveland's Indians, 11 to 2, today.
With war clubs swinging, the Tig-
ers lashed Mel Harder and two oth-
er Indian pitchers for 15 hits, cli-
maxing the attack with a bagful of
runs in the seventh and eighth in-
nings, while Tommy Bridges went
along serenely to victory No. 10
against one defeat.N
The triumph, in which the In-
dians' old pal, Earl Averill, was a
major star, moved the Tigers a half
game ahead of Cleveland and kept
them on the heels of the second place
Boston Red Sox.
The Sox also won today to retain
a game and a half advantage over,
Up to the seventh, when Detroit
climbed on Harder and Johnny
Broaca in a four-runrally,dthe battle
was a pitching duel with Bridges
holding a 2 to 0 edge. The Tigers
spanked Bill Zuber in the eighth,
macing him for five runs.
Given an 11 to 0 lead, Bridges
eased up and granted four straight
singles in the last of the eighth which
put over Cleveland's only runs.
Tommy's control was air-tight, and
he walked none while striking out
seven batters.
Paying his first visit to Cleveland
in a Tiger uniform Averill made the
occasion a sweet day for himself.
The veteran outfielder, whom De-
troit got by trade from the Indians
a few weeks ago, celebrated with two
singles and a double.' driving in two
runs and scoring twice.

Odds Are High
Difference May Narrow
As Bout Draws Near;
FightersIn Condition
NEW YORK, June 26.-(P)-There
is a little scrambling for footholds
on the Tony Galento bandwagon as
his bout with Joe Louis nears, but
despite the noise there is the vague
idea that even those who are shout-
ing loudest for Two-Ton Tony are
trying to drown out their own mis-
givings. - All they want is 20 to 1
that Tony wins by a knockout.
"And they aren't getting it," terse-
ly commented Jack Doyle, Broad-
way betting commissioner.
"The price on Galento to win is 6
to 1," he continued. "It is even
money that he doesn't come up for
the fourth round, 5 to 2 that he does-
n't come up for the 10th, and 5 to 1
that he doesn't come up for the
15th." There was no price on whether
he comes up to the stadium.
"The price on him winning prob-
ably will drop to 31/2 or 4 to 1 Wed-
nesday, the night of the fight," Doyle
explained. "It always drops that
way. Louis was an 8 or 10 tot 1
favorite over Schmeling a few days
before 'their first fight, but the
price dropped to 31/2 and 4 to 1 on
fight night. It's the old law of sup-
ply and demand. They take what
they can get."
The 6 to 1 win and 20 to 1 knock-
out prices would appear to contra-
dict each other, inasmuch as it is the
general opinion that if Galento wins
at all it must be by a knockout. The
critics just can't visualize Tony lum-
bering' through 15 rounds to a de-
cision over a man who is a better
boxer, a better two-handed puncher
and has a sharp advantage in reach.
Numerous factors have conspired
to drop the price on Galento in the
last few days. A major item is the
fact that Galento has looked fine,
for Galento, in training, while Louis
has been his usual apathetic self,
looking good only when aroused. It is
reported he has been a bankboard for
a left hook, Tony's favorite punch.


Sees Revisions Necessary,
As Program Has Stood
Unrevised In 40 Years
NEW YORK, June 26--()-Avery'
Brundage, president of the American
Olympic Committee, returned from a
world tour today with the predictions
that the 1940 Olympic Games will be
the best ever from a spectator stand-
point,~and that the Olympic program,
virtually unchanged in.-40 years is due
for -sharp revision.-
"The sports plant at Helsinki, Fin-
land, has been so arranged that all
of the competitions-in the main
stadium, swimming stadium, on the
rowing course and in the minor
sports arenas--will be held within
half an hour of the center of town,"
said Brundage, who is one of three
United State members of the Inter-
national Olympic Committee.
"The whole layout is extremely:
compact, and should be completed'
this year. Everyone in Finland is'
working enthusiastically to make the
games a success and, as I see it, the
only problem is likely to be one of
housing all the visitors.
"Finland reserved half of the tic-
kets for its own people, and already
that quota has been over-subscribed
four times, while Norway, Sweden
and a dozen other countries have ex-

hausted their allotments and even
the United States hasn't many left."
Brundage made a flying trip to
Helsinki after attending the I.O.C.
meeting at London. One of the more
important actions taken by the lat-
ter body, he said, was to empower
the executive committee, of which
Brundage is a member, to make a
thorough study of the games pro-
"The program has been in force
for 40:years vitrually without change,"
he explained. "During that time some
sports have gained' in interest while
othexs have lost.' Basketball, for in-
stance, is not on the 1940 calendar,
for Finland, taking the games n
.short notice when Japan abandoned
them, decided to discard that as well
as field- hockey, field handball and
women's gymnastics. This meant
about 1,000 athletes for whom they
would .not have to arrange accom-
"Yet basketball, while not one of
the. mandatory. Olympic sports is one
of the most widespread. As a result.
of the executive committee's report,
it is likely to become mandatory,
perhaps for the 1944 games."
Rome is leading the race for the
1948 award, he said, with Detroit a
strong contender.
"Detroit's organization has been
so thorough," Brundage added, "that
almost everywhere I stopped-in To-
kyo, Ceylon or Cairo-I was called
on by a Detroiter who had been
working to get the games for his
city." Detroit, Brundage said, is
ready to spend $7,000,000 or $8,000,-
000 on the games.

Sox Take Senators
WASHINGTON, June .26.-()-
The veteran Lefty Grove won his
seventh victory of the season by
blanking Washington 3-0 today with
a seven hit performance.
Although touched by Washington
batsmen for at least one hit in six of
the nine innings, the Boston hurler
kept the blows well scattered to
escape unscathed.
Meanwhile his mates were slapping
Joe Haynes for 9 and Walter Mas-
terson for one blow, four of which
off Haynes they bunched effectively
in the second and third innings to
score their runs. The Sox tallied
the first time when Joe Cronin
walked, Ted Williams singled and
Louis Berger doubled, and they got
a pair in the next inning when Joe
Vosmik singled, Jimmy Foxx walked
and Williams tripled.

-That old American terror spread
over Wimbledon's trim green courts
today as Bobby Riggs, Don McNeill
and Elwood Cooke dominated the
first round of the All-England Ten-
nis Championships before the Queen
Mother and a crowd of 12,000.
The Americans, losing only one of
their six-man team, started this
tournament in the doghouse but by
8 o'clock they were ready to move
into the royal box. Only Bill Rob-
ertson of California fell by the way-
side as Gene Smith of Berkeley, Cal.,
and Owen Anderson of Los Angeles
joined the big three in the second
round. Of the five only Cooke -was
carried to more than three sets.
Riggs, playing aggressive tennis,
thumped a good Indian player, J.
Dhamija, 6-3, 6-0, 6-4 without re=
moving his sweater. McNeill wiped
portly K. Aschner of Hungary off
the court and lost only two games
in winning 6-1, 6-1, 6-0. Cooke
chased Christian Boussus of France
all over the court, winning 1-6, 6-4,
6-0, 6-3.

Elmer Gedeon, crack first base-
man of the Wolverine nine this
spring, turned down a promising
future in track to sign with the
Washington Senators this sum-

an Championship's long career on

Mrs. Harb, playing in an exhibi-

ing today's ace, which entailed a long

was seven strokes under the course
