Lipton's third boot, along with
singles by Gil Coan and Ed Stew-
art, led to the Senators' winning
run in the extra frame.
In the National League, the St.
Louis Cardinals and the Brook-
lyn Dodgers remained in a sec-
ond place deadlock as result of
defeats by Philadelphia and Cin-
cinnati respectively.
Rookie Robin Roberts pitched
and batted the Phillies to a 6-2
victory over the Cards at Phila-

Bump Elliott
Stands Out in
All-Star Drills
EVANSTON, Ill., August 7-()
-Frank Leahy, coach of the Col-
lege All-Stars, predicted a 40-point
beating from the Chicago Card-
inals August 20 "unless we get in
shape in a hurry."
The Notre Dame coach sounded
this doleful note today after the
first All-Star scrimmage. He said
the team looked "fair."
Offensive single wing and "T"
formation backfields operated al-
ternately throughout the workout.
Outstanding for the single wing
group were Herman Wedemeyer
of St. Mary's and Wisconsin's Gug
Girard, who consistently passed to
Bump Elliott of Michigan for long
gains. Elliott took many of the
passes in lateral plays and made
the yardage himself.
Howard Yerges of Michigan and
Bill Luongo of Pennsylvania also
ran for good yardage from the
single wing spot.
