Ancient Appling Closes
In OnShortstop's Mark

CHICAGO - () - At an age
when most baseball players are
thumbing through their scrap-
books in an easy chair, 40-year-
old Luke Appling is hustling to-
ward a major league shortstop rec-
Old Aches-and-Pains, as the
ever-complaining Appling is fond-
ly called, has less than 20 games
to go to surpass the record mark
of Rabbit Maranville, which has
stood for 18 years.
MARANVILLE was at shortstop
in 2,153 games from 1912 through
1931, except 1924 when he was out
of action.
Luke, a Chicago White Sox
headliner since coming up from
Atlanta in 1930, will need only
17 seasons of play to top Rab-
bit's mark. Appling, in the Army
in 1944 and '45, figures the new
record will be booked about Au-
gust 4, and he is certain the
baling wire which he insists is
holding him together will last
that lo g.
"I do 't see how anything will
keep me from that record," drawls
loose-join ed, leathery faced Ap-
pling. "I don't plan to stub my
toe or anything like that and I'm
not- superstitious about balck cats
crossing my path. 'Course, my
ankle hurts and my back still
aches-they always do-but that
baling wire will hold me up.
* * *
"BESIDES THAT, I haven't
time to fuss about myself. I'm too
busy taking care of Cass Mich-
The 23-year old Michaels, one
of the outstanding second base-
men in the majors, is Luke's
roommate. He feels responsible

for him, calls him a "helpless
problem child," and teaches him
all the tricks he's picked up as
the oldest active infielder play-
ing in the game today.
When Appling first came to the
White Sox he wasn't sure whether
he would land with the Cubs on
the Northside of Chicago, or the
Comiskey's on the South.
* * *
BOTH CLUBS were bidding
with Atlanta for Luke's contract.
Before noon one day it was an-
nounced that the Cubs had pur-
chased Appling. Late in the af-
ternoon of the same day the At-
lanta club voided the first an-
nouncement and said Appling was
the property of the White Sox.
"I never did find out the real
lowdown on the shift," Luke
claims. "Several days later I
asked an official of the Atlanta
club what happened and, be told
me: 'I got a dollar and a half
more for you by merely walking
from the northside of Chicago
to the Southside, so I took.it.'"
The increased sales ante didn't
make Luke mad inasmuch as he
received 25 per cent of the pur-
chase price paid the Atlanta club.

CHICAGO--Dean Lind, 19-
year old Michigan sophomore
successfully defended his crown
in the Chicago District Golf
Association's Junior Open Golf
Tournament yesterday by de-
feating Howard Roseen of The
Citadel College, 2 and 1.
Lind, 1948 USGA National
Junior champion, was a mem-
ber of Michigan's freshman golf
team this spring.
One of his teammates was
Dick Evans, newly - crowned
Ohio Amateur Golf champion.
Regents Agree
Onz Athletic
The Board of Regents have ap-
proved the expenditure of $831,-
000 to increase and improve ath-
letic facilities at Michigan, it was
announced yesterday.
The money will be taken from
athletic funds.
Crisler was not in town to dis-
cuss future construction plans but
there was little doubt as to which
items had top priorities.
A new golf club house, a new
hockey rink and new baseball
stands at Ferry Field have been
on the "must" list for the past
few years.
The golf club house hasn't been
worthy of the name ever since the
actual club house was destroyed
by fire four years ago. A small
shack has served as the replace-
ment ever since.
at the leaky, 1,300 seat rink have
been at a premium for the past
few years. The new rink will seat
about 6,000.

CLEVELAND-Vic Raschi won
his 15th victory and Joe DiMaggio
batted in his 26th and 27th runs
in 21 games as the New York Yan-
kees defeated the Cleveland In-
dians, 5-3, yesterday, in a rubber
game of the three-game series.
The triumph increased the
Yankees' first place lead over
the runner-up tribe to five and
a half games.
A crowd of 44,646, including
35,818 paying customers, who
braved a rain shower just before
the game started, saw the Indians
get off to a 2-0 lead in the second
inning. Pitcher Early Wynn failed
to hold the advantage, however,
and was batted out in the eighth
to be charged with his second de-
feat. He has won seven.
Raschi, who has lost three
this season, scattered eight
hits for his fourth straight suc-
cess over the Tribe. They have
yet to beat him.
Once again DiMaggio was the
biggest producer for the Yankees.
He drove in two runs with a single
to spark a three-run rally in the
third. That uprising put the Yan-
kees ahead, 3-2, but Joe Gordon's
14th home run in the last half of
the third deadlocked the score at
Thereafter Raschi held the In-
dians scoreless and allowed only
four hits through the last six inn-

Tigers 6, Nats 3
DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers
put on their hitting shoes and
slammed out 14 hits, including
three homers, to whip the Wash-
ington Senators 6-3 yesterday and
sweep their three game series.
Pat Mullin hit his No. 5 homer,

while Dick Wakefield and George
Vico each came up with his third
of the season.
Freddie Hutchinson, making his
second relief appearance in two
days, took over for the Tigers when
starterTed Gray ran into trouble
in the fourth as the Senators scor-
ed all their runs in that inning.
Hutchinson put out the Senator
fire and pitched 5%/ scoreless inn-
ings to get credit for his sixth win
of the year as against four losses.
Dodgers 7, Pirates 6
BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn
Dodgers climaxed an uphill battle,
scoring two runs in the bottom of
the ninth to come from behind
and defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates,
7-6, yesterday.
The winning hit was delivered
by pinch hitter Luis Olmo. His
single off Hugh Casey, third
Pirate hurler, scored Bruce Ed-
wards from second. Edwards, a
moment earlier, had singled in
Roy Campanella from second
with the tying run.
Trailing 5-1, the Brooks came
up with a four-run eighth inning
to deadlock the game at 5-5. Af-
ter Jackie Robinson had batted in
a run with a long fly, Gil Hodges
hit his 13th home run with two
aboard off Bob Chesnes to com-
plete the scoring.

BOSTON-For the fourth time

for a 3-1 victory yesterday to gain
the odd win of a .three-game series.
