IN THIS CORNER-
by JOE WALSII, Sports Editor
A LOT OF MICHIGAN baseball fans were pretty blue when the Woa
verines couldn't figure out the southpaw slants of Illini ace Marv
Rotblatt last season. Had the Maize and Blue defeated the diminutive
lefty, they might have copped a clear decision in the Big Nine title
race. As it was, they got an even break.
ii, they can rest easy now. For this same Rotblatt has now
transferred ils allegiance from the red-hot Tilini squad to the
not-so-hot Chicago White Som, In his first appearance in a major
league uniform, he pitched one -hit ball for two innings against
Steve O'Neill's Tigers at Comiskey Park Sunday..
The only Bengal to nail one of Rotblatt's offerings was Georgie
Kell, and that was a scratch. single off third baseman Floyd Baker's
glove.

Speaking of shortstop-manager
Lou Boudreau of the Cleveland
Indians, Arthur Daley of the
Times said, "He doesn't belong, if
normal standards are to be con-
sidered. His hands are much too
small for him ever to be a major
league shortstop. His ankles are
so weak he needs yards of adhesive
.A tape to hold them together. He
can't run. His batting form is
atrocious. But he's so much the
best shortstop in the game, blessed
as he is with an uncanny sense of
anticipation, that there is no run-
ner-up."

The usual rumors about Bob
Feller's being washed up are in
circulation once more. It's funny.
When the Tribe was playing sec-
ond-division ball in other years,
Feller never had too much trouble
winning 20 or more. This year,
now that the Injuns are playing
championship ball, Rapid Robert
can't buy himself a win:
Frankie Gustine, third base-
man of the Pirates, and a "good
spring hitter," by his own ad-
mission finally was edged by
Chicago's Andy Pafko, a good
hitter anytime by everybody's
admission, in the race for the
starting berth at the hot corner
in the All-Star game.

Squad May Be Cut
Says Brundage
CHICAGO, July 6-UP)I-Avery
Brundage today notified the com-
mittees controlling the American
Olympic Team that it will be "nec-
essary to curtail the squads unless
funds are subscribed before the
ship sails for London July 14."
The threat that the American
team may be reduced was contin-
ued in telegrams dispatched by
Brundage, President of the United
States Olympic Committee.
Budget $500,000
Owen V. Van Camp, Olympic
Treasurer, revealed that out of a
budget of $500,000, only $330,000
is in hand. Another $80,000 is
pledged, leaving a deficit of $90,-
000.
It had been planned to take 385
athletes to England for the games
starting July 29. A deficit of $90,-
000 could result in 70 being left I
home.
Special Appeal Sent
Brundage said he had sent a
special appeal to 5,000 individuals
asking for help.
"I am profoundly discouraged,"
he said, 'by various campaigns to
raise funds to send private indi-

CHICAGO, July 6-(P)--A rec-
ord vote of more than four million
baseball fans today named play-
ers from six National and five
American League Clubs to the
starting lineups for the All-Star
Game at St. Louis July 13.
The players, excluding pitchers
which Managers Leo Durocher of
the National League and Bucky
Harris of the American League
will pick themselves, were selected
in a three-week poll conducted by
the Chicago Tribune and 452 other
newspapers and radio stations.
The contest ended Monday at
midnight.

Williams Gets Big Vote
Biggest individual vote-getter
was Boston's Ted Williams, who
garnered mention on 1,556,784 of
the 4,107,893 lineups submitted by
fans in the wide-spread balloting.
Yankee Clipper DiMaggio, the
1947 leader with approximately
the same number of votes Wil-
liams collected, placed third this
year behind Stan Musial of the
St. Louis Cardinals., who topped
National League returns with 1,-
532,502.

Tribune and Baseball Comnis-
sioner A. B. Chandler and with

nated by the fans for the first
three innings.
Remainder of the 25-player
squads to be picked by each man-
ager is expected to follow closely
the fan voting at the various posi-
tions beyond pitchers.
Harris inherited the job of mas-
ter-minding the Americans by
virtue of his New York Yankees'
1947 pennant triumph. Durocher
was out of baseball last season by
Chandler's decree, but drew the
National League managership be-
cause the Dodgers copped the flag
in that league last year.

NEW YORK, July 6-P)--Stan
Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals,
is wrecking the National League
batting race.
During the past week the Card
clouter added five more points to
his average and now has an ag-
gregate of .410 as compared to the
.351 mark of rookie Richie Ash-
burn, Philadelphia. The averages
include games of Monday, July 5.
The current Musial bombard-
ment has brought him a gain of 18
points in two weeks.

Musial's hit barrage also has
kept h1im in t;he lead in two other
divisions. He leads the league with
61 runs scored and is tops wit11
112 hits. In addition, he is second
to Johnny Hopp of Pittsburgh, in
belting triples. Hopp has 10, Mus-
ial nine.

CHICAGO, July 6-(tL)-Bos-
ton's pace-setting Ted Williams
did a 29-point nose-dive in the
American League batting race last
week, plunging from .415 to .386.
The Beantown Belter, how-
ever, still held first p1 ice by 26
points over runner-up Lou
Boudreau, Cleveland' shortstop-
manager, who had .362.
Williams cooled off with only
five hits in 29 trips in his poorest
week since he began his blazing
drive into the 400's.
Third behind Boudreau through
Monday's games was Al Zarilla of
St. Louis with .342. New York's
Bobby Brown was fourth with .324.
