Red Sox Trounce Chisox
As Hughson Wins 18th
Contest Marks Hughson's Farewell for
Duration as He Enters Navy August 28
By The Associated Press
BOSTON, Aug. 9-Tex Hughson, aided by some lusty thumping by his
Red Sox mates, pitched his last big league ball game for the duration
today, defeating the rival White Hose of Chicago 9 to 1.
Tex, who goes into the Navy Aug. 28, helped himself to two hits, much
to the delight of 708 service men and 11,215 fans who paid their way into
It was apparent that they all came to cheer on the tall, good natured
resident of Kyle, Texas, who became the first major leaguer to win 18
games this season,
When Hughson's name was announced in the lineup the crowd
When Tex poked a nice single his first time up, the crowd shrieked.
Then he got another single his second trip to the plate, and the
crowd yelled even louder and longer.
The noise reached its height when_
he came to the plate in the seventh
inning. He got a walk that time.
After Bobby Doerr made the last
putout of the game he ran to Tex,
handed him the ball and shook his
hand. Like small boys, the rest of
tehe Sox ran to congratulate him.
Tex, a modest guy with a boyish
grin, tipped his cap and ducked into
the dugout as the crowd stood and
whooped it up again. As one young-
ster, more courageous than the rest,
leaned far over the top of the dugout
his hand outstretched, Tex smiled
and shook it.
Then out he came again to be con-
gratulated by Rear Admiral Robert
A. Theobald, commandant of the first
He finally managed to struggle in-
to the clubhouse.
"I sure wanted to win that one,"
said Tex. "Hey, did y'all see those

Is Chosen for
Marine Corps To Say
If Star Cager Can Play
In Game for War Funds
Tommy King, stellar forward or
last winter's basketball squad, wil
represent Michigan as a member o
the 1944 College All-Star cage squac
which will tangle with the world'
prfessional champions Dec. 1 at Chi-

King was officially notified of hi
selection several days ago by Harr

able to compete or not depends upon
the decision of his Marine Corps
Wins Many Honors
King's choice for the coveted hon-
or came as a result of his outstand-
ing performance as a first-year man
in the Western Conference last seas-
on. Competing against the fines
cage talent the Mid-West had to of-
fer, King racked up enough points
to rank sixth in Big Ten scoring and
gain honorable mention rating at the
close of the campaign. His team-
mates voted him most valuable play-
er to top off a brilliant record.
The all-star game, played for the
benefit of the Wounded Service Men's
Fund, is to basketball what the an-
nual contest between the pick of
the college stars and the champs of
the National Professional football
league is to football. Every summer
the records are carefully gone over

All competitors receive a trip to
Chicago with all expenses paid plus
a wrist watch as a memento of the
occasion. The team will convene in
the Windy City around Nov. 15, but

In the past, many stars in the Arm-
ed Forces have been allowed to ac-
cept the honor.
King came to the University via
the Marine Corps from East Lansing

twice mentioned for second team All-

LOST AND FOUND
Heading for First Pennant
Team Composed of Only Average Players;
Sewell Does Excellent Managerial Work

NEW YORK-Quick now, who
plays right field for the St. Louis
Browns? And left field? And catches?
. Sure, we don't think you knew
without calling in your vice presi-
dent in charge of research. Luke
Sewell knows because he has to scrib-
ble out the batting order. The guys
he puts out there in the field know,
presumably without glancing down
at their identification tags.
== But to the average fan the indivi-
dual members of the club are as an-
onymous as pebbles. The Browns
are the Browns, that's all, a team
., - devoid of personalities.
It has always been so. The Browns
were just another team filling out
an eight-team league. They had
some players who were just so darn-
ed good they rose above the nameless
roles of the other members of the
team. Players like George Sisler,

quite a while. But few of the names
are associated with the Browns as a
Bill Dickey or a Joe DiMaggio would
be associated with the Yankees, or a
Ted Williams with the Red Sox.
George McQuinn and Vernon Ste-

But this bunch of baseball spooks
is out in front in the American
League race, which must prove some-
thing or other-That Sewell is do-
ing a bangup job as manager, for one
thing, and that the players are giv-
ing him everything they've got.
If they should come through to the
pennant, it will be just another proof
f that baseball primarily is a team
game. If it wasn't, the Brownies
wouldn't be where they are. Indivi-
dually they could be called journey-
men ball players.
It looks as though they might be
making the longest journey the club
has ever made.

with such other favorites as medalist
Sally Sessions, Phyllis Otto and Bet-

Miss Germain won the 10th and

Miss Hopkins took a 6 on the 15t

Miss Germain will face 20-year-
old Betty Jean Rucker of Spokane,
Wash., tomorrow. The Stanford jun-
ior had the biggest victory margin of
the second round play in eliminating
Ruth More of Peoria, Ill., 6 and 5-
posting a two-under-par 36 on the
first nine and firing three birdies on
the last four holes.
Sessions Whips Wall
In the feature match of the day,
little Miss Sessions of Muskegon dis-
posed of her Michigan rival, Mary
Agnes Wall of Menominee, 1-up. The
match was squared four times, and
Miss Wall, a runner-up for the am-
ateur crown in 1941 and 1943, held
an advantage only once as her stub-
born little foe-wearing a jaunty
"jeep" hat-cruised along only four
over par for the 18 holes.
Miss Sessions tomorrow will meet
a 1941 western amateur semi-finalist,

Luis Olmo's two-run homer in the
