Paton Gains
In Eastern
Net Tourney
By The Associated Press
-Andy Paton, Michigan's No. 1
tennis player this year, advanced
to the second round of the 21st
annual Eastern Grass Court
Championships today at the Or-
ange Lawn Tennis Club, while
his teammate and Michigan's No.
2 netter, Fred Otto, went down
to defeat in his first-round match.
Paton took the measure of Roy
Grimse, of Hollywood, Cal., 4-7,
7-5, 6-3, in a hard-fought match,
while Otto lost to Leonard Stein-
er of Brooklyn, N.Y., 6-1, 6-1.
Seeded foreign players featured
the opening day's action, with
leading American men and wom-
en netters absent because of play
at Southhampton, N.Y. J. H. Meh-
ta and S. C. Misra, members of
India's Davis Club team, advanced
into the third round with easy
straight-set victories.
Cards To Stay
In St. Louis
Sam Breadon Replies
To Frick 'Statement'
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 2-t'P)-As long
as Sam Breadon maintains an in-
terest in baseball, St. Louis will
be represented in the National
League, the 71-year-old owner of
the Cardinals said today in com-
menting on the latest proposition
to move one major league ball
club out of the city.
In today's issue of the Soprt-
ing News,' national baseball
weekly published here, a story
appears which quotes Ford
Frick, National League presi-
dent, as recommending moving
the Cardinals to Chicago, giv-
*ing the Windy City three major
League clubs.
The suggestion, credited to
Frick as solving a "St. Louis prob-
lem," would give Chicago a Na-
tional League rivalry similar to
that of the New .York Giants and
Brooklyn Dodgers.
"In the first place," said Brea-
don, "I understand that Frick
did not broach the idea of mov-
ing the Cardinals to Chicago. A
New York sportswriter proposed
the plan and asked if that
wasn't a good way of assuring
equitable attendance all around.
And according to my informa-
tion Frick said 'yes, it might.'
But Frick apparently went no
Then Breadon added:
"In the second place I don't
plan to m6ve the Cardinals. As
long as I am in baseball, they will
Ibe here. The St. Louis public has
patronized the club' well."

The Detroit Tigers dropped fur-

kees and Boston Red Sox by los-
ing to the Bosox, 2-1, last night
on Ted Williams' first-inning
homer with one on (his 24th),
while the Yanks were winning a
doubleheader. '
After Bobby Doerr, Boston
second baseman, had been hon-
ored by the fans with an esti-
mated $22,000 worth of gifts,
including a car, a truck, and a
tractor, Virgil Trucks gave up
seven hits only to lose a tight
duel to Tex Hughson. Eddie
Mayo hit safely in 'his 20th
straight game.
The Yankees swept two from
the Cleveland Indians,n3-2 and
3-0. The first game went 14 inn-
ings, causing the second tohbe

A high throw by substitute
second baseman Joe Bockman,
an ex-Yankee, attempting to
complete what would have been
an inning-ending double play,
enabled Bill Johnson to score
from second with the winning
tally in the 14th. Bobby Fel-
ler pitched twelve innings of
the first game and gave up sev-
en hits, while Indian Steve
Gromek was charged with the
Vic Raschi, Yankee rookie, won
his fifth straight game in the
nightcap and allowed the Tribe
only three hits.
In other American League
games, the Philadelphia Athletics
came from behind to beat the St.
Louis Browns, 8-5, while the
Washington Senators came out
on the short end of a 13-1 count
as the Chicago White Sox pound-
ed out 13 hits.

Over in the National League,
the Brooklyn Dodgers lost their
second straight game to, the
Chicago Cubs, 12-7, while the
New York Giants and the Pitts-
burgh Pirates were splitting a
Peanuts Lowry and Eddie Wait-
kus, the first two men in the Cub

lineup, each walloped five hits out
of six trips to the plateand bat-
ted in four runs apiece as the Cubs
combed Dodger pitching for 17
hits. Brooklyn used seven pitchers,
one short of the N.L. record, in a
vain attempt to stop the barrage.
Frank Gustine, Pirates' third
baseman, hit a homer with two
out in the ninth in their night-
cap to beat the Giants, 5-4, after
the Bucs lost the opener, 10-
2. The Giants broke their club
home run record by getting five
in the two games, with Bobby
Thompson smacking his 20th

his 25th. Hank Greenberg got
one for the Pirates in the second
game, his 17th.
The fading Boston Braves drop-
ped another game to the Cincin-
nati Reds, 7-6, with a seven-rur
eighth inning, when the Braves
defense fell apart.
In a late night game, Ron
Northy, Cards' outfielder, hit a
ninth-inning homer to give St.
Louis a 4-3 win over the Phil-
lies, and move them a game clos-
er to Brooklyn.

TYLER, Tex.-Upsets marked
tonight's results of the National
AAU Outdoor Swimming and Div-
ing Championships here, while
Michigan's swimmers were cop-
ping two thirds, a fourth, and a
fifth, in the final events.
Michigan was running third
in team scoring, as Ohio State
was well out in front with a
total of 43 points. New Haven
was second with 30, while the
Wolverines had compiled 21
points, only one ahead of the
Hawaii Swim Club.
Ohio State bettered the national
record in the 800-meter relay,
when Buckeyes Jack Ryan, Bob
DeGroot, Halo Hirose, and Bill
Smith swam the distance in 0:13.8,
with Michigan fifth.
Allan Stack of the New Ha-
ven Club dethroned Wolverine
Harry Holiday in the 100-meter
backstroke, winning the event
in 1:07.8, as Holiday came in
third. Stack's time was a second
and ahalf over the national rec-
ord. Bob DeGroot of Ohio State
beat Holiday out for second
Matt Mann III was third in the
400-meter freestyle, as 16-year old
Jimmy McClane of the New Hav-
en Club whipped Ohio State's Bill
Smith by 20 meters. Previously,
Smith had won the 200-meter free
style and McClane had success-
fully defended his 1,500-meter
The time was 4:41.9, which
was 2.3 seconds over Smith's na-
tional record set in 1942.
Bob Sohl, Michigan breast-
stroke star, finished fourth in the
200-meter event as Joe Vedeur of
the Brighton Drake Swim Club,
splashed to a new national and
American record and came within
1.2 seconds of the world record
with a 2:38.4 performance.
Vedeur had previously wiped
out both marks with a 2:41.2 in
the preliminaries, breaking the
record set by John Higgins of
the Olneyville Boys Club in
1936-2:43.3. Second in tonight's
race was Jose Balmores of the
Hawaii Swim Club, while Sohl
was right behind Don DeFor-
rest of the Brighton Drake
Friday night, Michigan's 300-
meter relay broke the record they
had set in the qualifying heats by
swimming a 3:15.3 in winning the
finals. Finishing nearly three
lengths ahead of Ohio State, the
Wolverine trio of Weinberg, Sohl,
and Holiday swam a new world's
record into the books.
Matt Mann III was fourth in
the 1500-meter free style after
leading the field for nearly four
laps. Wolverine Gus Stager
failed to qualify in the 200-met-
er free style, and Gil Evans al-
so did not get to the finals of
the three-meter dive, after in-
juring his leg while training at
the Detroit Boat Club.
,In this dive event, Bruce Har-
lan of Ohio State eked out a win
over his teammate, Miller Ander-
son, by .05 of a point.

After the finals are over to-
day, seven of the group of
the Maize and Blue swimmers
will leave for Honolulu for a
series of six events in the Is-
lands during the latter part of
Those Wolverines making thc
trip are Harry Holiday, Bob Sohl,

possibly Gil Evans, depending up
on how his leg comes along.
