T gers Regain
,AL Leadership
In Night Game
Pitcher 'Bo-Bo' Newson
Gains Fourteenth Win
Over Hapless Brownies
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 6.-(;P)-The De-
troit Tigers regained the American
League leadership with a 6 to 2 vic-
tory over the St. Louis Browns to-
night as Buck Newsom chalked up
his 14th pitching triumph of the
season, although rescued by Archie
McKain in the ninth inning.'
Newsom, who gave up seven hits
but walked eight, filled the bases with
two out in the last frame and Mc-
Kain was summonedl to pitch to
Walter Judnich, striking him out.
Detroit clinched the decision with
a four-run outburst in the sixth
which broke a 2-all deadlock and en-
abled the Tigers to go a half-game
up on the Cleveland Indians, who
divided an afternoon doubleheader
with the Chicago White Sox.
Big Hank Greenberg opened the
Tigers' sixth inning rally with a
double to deep right field. Rudy
York, who clouted his twentieth hom-
er of the season in the second stanza,
drew a base on balls and Pinky
Higgins singled, filling the bases.

Hawkeye Coach, Eddie Anderson
Chosen To Lead College Al-Stars
CHICAGO, Aug. 6.-(P)-Iowa's Eddie Anderson is the "peepul's choice"
to lead the college boys against the Green Bay Packers pro football cham-
pions, in the annual All-Star game in Soldier Field, Aug. 29.
A throng of 5,881,130 cast votes in the nation-wide coaches' poll, roll-
ing up an almost unprecedented margin for Anderson in tribute to his
amazing success in 1939, hiS first year at the Hawkeye school.
Anderson's four assistants on the all-star staff will be Don Faurot of
Missouri, Buck Shaw of Santa Clara. E. E. (Tad) Wieman of Princeton and
Lowell (Red) Dawson of Tulane, each

of whom led the poll in their respec-
tive sections.
Andersonsreceived 4,168,514 points.
Faurot ranked second in total points
with 2,943,541. Wieman received
858,754 points; Shaw, 850,946, and
Dawson, 845,822.
The five coaches, all of whom have
accepted the all-star assignments,
will gather at Northwestern Univer-
sity next Sunday to greet their all-
star squad of 67 players, senior head-
liners of 1939, and lay plans for the
practice drills.
Practice begins next Monday, the
same day Coach E. L. (Curley) Lam-
beau calls out his Packers to prepare
them for the challenge of the col-
legians.'
The six-game series, originated by
the Chicago Tribune in 1934, now
stands all square, the All-Stars hav-
ing won twice, lost twice to the pros
and tied two games. The New York
Giants, then pro titleholders, defeat-

ed the collegians last August, 9 to 0,
on three field goals before 80,000
spectators.
Included on the squad which An-
derson will handle are four of his
Iowa stars of last fall, among them
Nile Kinnick, the great Hawkeye
halfback who led the players' poll
with more than a million votes.
