NO. THREE ON TAP:
Rocky Leaves for Brooklyn;
Battle Racks UpRecord Gate

By SID FEDER
CHICAGO, July 17-(A)-They
were cooking up an official hero's
r homecoming parade today for
Rocky Graziano and his brand
new middleweight championship
along the streets of Brooklyn as
the build-up to a third Graziano-
Tony Zale thriller.
The best guesses were that it
would be Chicago or Philadel-
phia or Cleveland or even New
York-where Rocky is still bar-
red--depending on where a big
enough building could be found
to hold all the customers who'd
want to sit in on it.
Last night's No. 2 brawl in Chi-
cago Stadium-the first was in
NeW York last year-drew 18,267
fans who contributed to a record
indoor gate of $422,009.18 and
were left limp by the larruping.
Rocky received $70,441.23 for win-
ning the crown and Zale $140,
882.46 for losing it.
Thriller No. three can't be held
until late October or November,
because while Rocky has the ti-

tle, he also has some fancy
souvenirs from his six-round
technical knockout victory over
game Tony, which evened things
for his six-round knockout de-
feat by the Indiana steel mill
hand last September. These
souvenirs included a sliced left
eye, which was still held to-
gether with clamps today, and
a right eye which was shut tight.
Rocky took these assorted me-
mentoes of the mauling home with
him by train after he was in-
formed of the homecoming Brook-
lyn is cooking up. Rocky hails or-
iginally from Manhattan's lower
East Side streets, but lives in
Brooklyn now, and Brooklyn Boro
President John Cashmore phoned
him today to tell him about the
frolics planned in his honor.
Meantime, a disappointed
Zale was looking ahead to the
third meeting, with the quiet
prediction that he wanted to
"try Rocky once more, because
I'm sure I can lick him."
As a matter of fact, for all the
scars of battle on him, he looked
far more the winner than Rocky.
Both Zale and his managel, Sam
Pian, were bitter that Referee
Johnny Behr stopped the fight
the first time Tony was floored.
Last Friday night, New York
Athletic Commission Chairman
Eddie Eagan indicated that Rocky
might get his license back for the
1948 licensing period, which be-
gins this fall. Rocky's New York
license was revoked last January
for his failure to report a $100,000
bribe offer in connection with a
fight that never came off.

Oliver Sets
OpenMark
TORONTO, July 17--()-Ed
Oliver, the hefty Wilmington, Del.,
pro, set a blistering pace today in
the second round of the Canadian
Open Golf Championship, estab-
lishing a double-round record of
131 for the Open and equalling
the Scarboro Club's competitive
course record of 63.
Oliver's sensational eight-un-
der-par sent him three strokes
ahead of Bobby Locke, the South
African money player who card-
ed a five-under-par 66 today and
set his two-round score at 134.
Nearest to Locke, at 136, came
Clayton Haefner of Charlotte,
N.C., who had a 67 yesterday, and
Bobby Gray, the host profession-
al, who shot a four-under-par 67
today.
Johnny Palmer, Badin, N.C.,
who led yesterday with a 66,
couldn't keep the pace and took a
73 today, two over par for a 139
total.
Kelly Favored
To WinScull
DETROIT, July 17-(/P)-Al-
though there is no one in sight
who figures to give Philadelphia's
John B. Kelly, Jr., much of a fight
in the National Sculling Champ-
ionship, headline event in the two-
day National Rowing Regatta
which opens tomorrow on the De-
troit River, the rest of the 27
races on the busy program may
go a long way toward providing a
line on America's 1948 Olympic
Team.
Kelly, the young Philadelphia
Irishman who comes here from a
rousing victory in the Diamond
Sculls on the Thames in England,
arrived today with his father, a
former Olympic champ, to de-
fend his National crown on the
Detroit Boat Club course off Belle
Isle.

Tigers Win Twice;
Braves, Bums Lose
By The Associated Press
The New York Yankees today
equalled the American League
record of 19 straight victories
made by the Chicago White Sox
in 1906 when they captured both
ends of a double-header from the
Cleveland Indians 3-1 and 7-2.
A crowd of 22,296 saw Bobo
Newsom, notch his second win
as a Yankee and the 200th of his
colorful major league career, in
the first game.
Only two streaks in modern
Major League baseball exceeded
the present Yankee skein. The
New York Giants ran off- 26 in a
row in 1516, the highest total ever
achieved, and the Chicago Cubs
rolled off 21 in succession to close
out the 1935 season. Both were
National League teams.
The Yankees defeated every
club in the league with the ex-
ception of the Detroit Tigers dur-
Sig the current season.
Coming from behind in both
games, the Detroit Tigers swept
a doubleheader from the Wash-
ington Senators today, 7 to 5
and 4 to 3.
Stan Spence's pair of two-run
homers off Al Benton didn't put
the Nats far enough out front in
the opener and Detroit came on to
win as George Kell collected a
single, double and triple and stole
home with the winning run and
Dick Wakefield blasted his sixth
homer.
The Boston Red Sox swept
a doubleheader from the Chi-
cago White Sox here today by
scoring three runs in the elev-
enth of the second game for a
6-3 triumph after winning the
opener, 4-1.
The St. Louis Browns' defense
collapsed completely in the ninth
inning tonight as the Philadelphia
Athletics-already -fairly certain
of a triumph-clubbed home nine

runs to clip the last-place Brown-
ies 16 to 2. Henry Thompson, one
of the two Negro players signed
by the Browns today, played sec-
ond base and went hitless in four
trips to the plate,
Pittsburgh's revived Pirates
plastered another defeat on the
pace-setting Brooklyn Dodgers,
winning 7-1, as hank Green-
berg got his 15th homer of the
season.
With Harry (The Cat) Brecheen
knocking in the first two runs, the
fourth place World Champion St.
Louis Cards tonight defeated the
Boston Braves 5-2.
The Giants-Cubs game was
rained out, and Philadelphia and
Cincinnati were not scheduled.

ST. LOUIS, July 17--(M)-The
American L e a g u e St. Louis
Browns became the third club in
modern major league baseball his-
tory to add Negro players to its
roster today when outfielder Will-
ard Brown and infielder Henry
Thompson of the Kansas City
Monarchs in the Negro American
Baseball League were signed.
Earlier today the Browns an-
nounced the purchase of a 30-day
option on Negro infielder Lorenzo
Davis of the Birmingham, Ala.,
Black Barons. -
The signing of Brown and
Thompson was announced by
Brownie General Manager Bill
Dewitt. Thompson started at
second base in tonight's con-
test with the Philadelphia Ath-
letics. Brown was also in uni-
form.
Dewitt said first baseman Jerry
Witte had been optioned to Lhe
Toledo clubofethe AmericantAsso-
ciation and 17-year-old-shortstop
Perry Currin sent to the Spring-
field, Ill., team in the Three-I
League to make room for the
newcomers.
Davis, who has been .hitting
.361, will remain with Birming-
ham where the Browns will con-
tinue to scout him.
Dewitt said the contracts of
Brown and Thompson were pur-
chased from the Kansas City Ne-
gro club through the co-operation
of Tom Baird, one of the owners
of the Monarchs.
Owner Richard Muckerman of
the Browns said the players were
signed "to help lift the Browns out
of the American League cellar."

Buddy Young
Nips'Snuffy'
. Buddy Young, recent track
and football star for Illinois,
recently showed that he had
lost little of his old speed by
outsprinting Snuffy Stirnweiss,
New York Yankee second base-
man, by five yards in an exhi-
bition 60-yard dash at Yankee
Stadium.
Young, who is scheduled to
play pro football for the New
York Yankees of the All-Amer-
ica Conference this fall, wore
baseball spikes, and football)
pants and shirt in beating
Stirnweiss, and was clocked un-
officially in 6.2 seconds, only
one-tenth of a second off the
world mark.
He came back to circle the
bases in 14.2 seconds, and re-
ceived $500 for the afternoon's
chores.

tual consent" was the method in
which professional foot races
were started years ago, and while
the practice has been lost in the
march of time, it did give the
smart track boys an edge over
their opponents.
Athletic Director Ralph H.
Young of Michigan State College,
an authority on track history who
once coached the sport, was dis-
cussing an old trick of the trade.
"Mutual consent" started each
sprinter five yards back of the
starter's gun. If they came
abreast out of the chute, the start-
er pulled the trigger and the race
was on. If one had an edge at
the starter's mark, then a false
start was declared and another
attempt required.
"It was with the false start
that the smart boys operated,"
Y o u n g continued, "especially
against real tough opposition. The
smartie, unbeknownst to anyone,
would have a heated sandbag in
the chute, and after each false
start (which is purposely caused),
