EyeingFi Lrway, Submarine Stile| Strike In Traverse City

By MIKE DANN
From Associated Press Summaries
There was a time not so far back
that a losing Tiger team would al-
ways regain its snarl during a Yankee
series and defeat the proud McCar-
thy aggregation. But apparently the
Detroiters no longer have the voodoo
over New Yorkers because they lost
to the Yankees yesterday 3-0 in a
game tlat made the Tigers look like
their usual hapless selves.
Big Al Benton, the best the Tigers
have, pitched a fair game, but when
his teammates' bats remain as life-
less as the Italian battle fleet he
can't be expected to win a ball game.
Babe Young, Giant slugger, got his
second home run in as many days to
give the Giants an eleven-inning vic-
tory over the slipping Cincinnati
Reds. It was the fourth straight tri-
umph for the Giants and the second
time Young has broken up the ball
game with a well-timed extra-base
knock.
Max Lanier, left-handed Cardinal
pitcher, continues to have the Indian
sign over the weaker teams in the
league. While he limited the weak
Poston Braves to six scattered hits
the gashouse boys belted Brave hurl-
ers for 16 safeties and 8 runs.

Sellers Leads
In Tam Open
Pro Is Two Strokes
Ahead Of Heafner
CHICAGO, July 24.-U)-Gib Sel-
lers, Detroit professional who sizzled
the Tam O'Shanter course with a 68
yesterday, came back in the second
round of the Tam Open today with
a 36-33-69 to take the lead at the
half-way mark of the four-day event.
Sellers' two amazing sub-par days
of shooting gave the former Arkan-
sas and Michigan Open champion a
36-hole total of 137, seven under par.
He was two strokes ahead of Clayton
Heafner, Linville, N. C., shot-maker
whose 36-34-70 today gave him the
early lead at 139.
Sellers, 33 years old, played the
outgoing nine in par today, as he did
yesterday, but-again found the in-
coming layout to his liking. He start-
ed off with a birdie four on the 10th
and a birdie two on the 11th, and
played straight par up to the 18th,
where another three, gave him a third
birdie.
Scores of other Michigan players
in the open division included:
Jimmie Johnson, Dearborn, 73-74--
147; Denry Champagne, Grand Rap-
ids, 78-74-152; Bill Barclay, Cadil-
lac, 73-79-152;4Eddie Jackson, De-
troit, 84-80-164; Chick Harbert,
Battle Creek, 70-71-141; Ronnie
Williams, Detroit, 75-76-151.
'Double Salvo' Is Mascot
MIDLAND, Texas, July 24-(A')--
Bombsight Bessie, mascot at . the
Bombardier College here, is a mon-
grel with one eye encircled by black,
greatly resembling. the imprint of
the super, secret bombsight on the
bombardier's eye.
She has whelped a male pup with
two bombsight eyes.
The pup is named Double Salvo.

By AL STEINMAN
The Detroit Tigers are currently
floundering around in the second
division mainly as the result of a
sensational climb by the St. Louis
Browns. TheiBrowns have von f if-
teen of their last seventeen games,
to take over the fourth place spot
from' the Bengals.
Ironically enough, the lad who has
been pacing the Browns to victory
has been one Chester Laabs, a former
Tiger. Laabs wasn't good enough to
play, regularly in Detroit, although
Jack Zeller, the Tiger manager, al-
ways had a great deal of confidence
in his ability to slam out extra base
hits. Zeller finally gave up on Laabs,
and traded him off to the Brownies
in the now famous "five player deal"
in which Bo Bo Newsom became a
Tiger. .
It took Chet a couple of years to
get over the novelty of being a major
leaguer, but now he's making the
opposing pitchers look sad almost
every day that he comes to the plate.
At the moment he has hit eighteen
home-runs, seven of which ca ie in
six days, and ranks right behind Ted
Williams and Joe Di Maggio in runs
batted in.
But Laabs isn't the only star that
the Tigers have given to other clubs
in the last couple of years. Ask the
folks from Cleveland who the best
State .Defense
Head Advises
Daylight Alerts
LANSING, July 24-GP)--Daytime
air raid alerts are just as necessary
to civilian defense training as night
blackouts, Capt. Don S. Leonard,
commander of the Cifizens' Defense
Corps in Michigan, asserted today.
"The enemy is not going to wait
for the business man or laborer to
come home from work and don his
helmet before he starts dumping
bombs," Leonard said. "Day prac-
tice may disturb busines routine on
a large scale, but far les than any
actual bombing."
He pointed out that the Japanese
bombed Pearl Harbor and Americans
bombed Tokyo in daylight.
"There is good reason to suspect
that any bombing the Axis may plan
for Michigan alsQ would be in the
daytime when sprawling factories
would be easy targets," Leonard ex-
plaimed.

rodkie in the league is, and they will
tell you that it couldn't be anyone
else but Les Fleming who has taken
over Hal Trosky's position at first
base for the Indians. Fleming is a
natural, he is a good fielder, hits
the ball well, and has turned out to
be one of the iost colorful players
on the team. Two years ago IV was
with Detroit, but they let him, go be-
cause he just didn't seem to have
the stuff that makes a star.
Then there is the case of Dixie
Walker who has been a big factor
in Brooklyn's sensational rise during
the last three years. The Tigers had
him, but they were afraid to gamble
because an arm poperation made him
a supposed uncertainty in the field.
You guessed it, they shipped him of f
to the Dodgers where he has been
a star ever since. =
I could go on relating such inter-
esting cases as Whitlow Wyatt and
Carl Hubbell who were both Tigers,
but why carry it on any longer. I'm
sure that Del Baker and Jack Zeller
are having plenty of sleepless nights
as they read about the feats of the
boys that weren't good enough for
Detroit.
