not have scored except for an error
by Dick Bartell, Detroit shortstop.

JERSEY CITY, N. J., July 1-(k')-
The case of the gashed chin, the
final daffiest touch to an already
hilarious set-up, was more or less
cleared up today, and it appeared
only the constabulary could prevent
Tony Galento and Max Baer from
keeping their fistic date in the local
park tomorrow at 9 p.m. (E.S.T.).
A beer glass, thrown by Tony's
brother, picked out Tony's chin in
Galento's "soft-drink emporium" in
Orange last night, and the results
threatened for a time to force a post-
ponement of the "Battle of the
Bums." The glass sliced Tony's chin
for about an inch, right where his
dimple would be if he had a dimple.
A couple of doctors looked it over
today however, and reported to State
Boxing Commissioner, Abe J. Greene,
that if the sliced chin was the only
cut Tony received in there tomorrow
from the playboy of the Pacific, he
needn't worry. So, Green asked Pro-
motor Mike Jacobs and Herman Tay-
lor, one of Two-Ton's managers, how
they felt about it. All hands, includ-
ing Tony, decided the "minor abra-
sion" was not serious enough to keep
this epic from an eager public.
An interesting sidelight on the
episode came to light with more
thorough investigation. It seems To-
ny made a slight mistake, during an
argument with his brother, Russell,

PHILADELPHIA, Juiy 1.-()-
The Brooklyn Dodgers pushed their
way to a 4 to 3 triumph over the
Phillies today in a sloppy session
that was decided principally through
a three-run first inning assault on
Hugh Mulcahy. Brooklyn m oved up
half a game behind Cincinnati's Na-
tional League leaders.
The Dodgers were outhit, 8-7, but
in that big first inning Cookie Lava-
getto walked, Dixie Walker doubled,
Joe Medwick tripled and scored on
a wild pitch.
Brooklyn's other run crossed the
plate in the fourth on one of two
errors by Bobby Bragan.
Cronin might ease his burden by
leading off with the nucleus of the
first-place Cleveland Indians. He is
certainly expected to name Bob Fel-
ler as his starting pitcher. This
wouldslogically lead topthe selection
of Rollie Hemsley to catch.
He might likewise try for smooth-
ness in his infield by using Ray Mack
at second, Lou Boudreau at short
and Ken Keltner at third, all from
the Indians. Jimmie Foxx is an ob-
