BOSTON-(P)-Tommy Holmes'
third homer in his last three
games clinched Vernon Bickford's
11th win for the Boston Braves,
a 7-5 decision over the top place
Brooklyn Dodgers last night be-
fore a packed 34,062 crowd. Elbie
Fletcher homered in the Tribes-
men's first two runs in the first
inning.
Bickford, however, weakened
in the ninth and put the first
two batters aboard but Nelson
Potter choked off the Dodgers'
last ditch rally after their fifth
scorer crossed the plate.
The Tribesmen blasted starter
Ralph Branca, who also was seek-
ing his 11th triumph, out of ac-
tion in the second. inning. Ervin
Palica reliered him and Don New-
combe finished up.
Catcher Roy Campanella hit
his 11th hocer for Brooklyn in the
second.
* * *
PITTSBURGH -- (4') - Johnny
Hopp's ninth inning single with
the bases loaded to score Phil
tVasi and Vddie Fitzgerald gave

row. Murry Dickson, who pitched
shutout ball for six innings, got
credit for the win before a crowd
of 32,983.
The loss prevented the Cardinals
from gaining a first place tie with
Brooklyn.
George Munger was coasting on
a 3 to 1 lead going into the final
inning when the Pirates slammed
five consecutive singles without an
out. Ted Wilks, who relieved Mun-
ger, yielded the winning blow al-
though Munger was charged with
the loss.
* * *
CHICAGO - (A') - Bud Sou-
chock's base-cleaning eighth inn-
ing double gave the Chicago White
Sox a 9-6 victory over the Cleve-
land Indians before 24-444 per-
sons last night. The victory, Chi-
cago's fifth in as many games
against the Indians here this sea-
son, proved Satchell Paige's fifth
1949 loss.
* * *
WASHINGTON-(,')-Ellis Kin-
der posted his eighth victory to-
night as the Boston Red Sox de-
feated Washington, 5-0, in a game
called in the sixth inning due to
rain.
Kinder held the Senators-
beaten in 11 of their last 14
games-to four hits as the Red
Sox mauled Joe Haynes and Sid

Hudson for eight safeties.
Haynes, who left after three
innings with a 2-0 deficit and a
pulled muscle in his side, was
the loser.
Birdie Tebbetts had singled and
moved to second on a passed ball
with one out in the sixth when a
downpour washed out the remain-
ing innings.

NEW YORK--(A)-The Brook-
lyn Dodgers and St. Louis Cardi-
nals, presently in a dog fight for
the pennant, dominate the Na-
tional League All-Star team-even
to the extent of the pitching staff.
Billy Southworth of the Boston
Braves, who will manage the Na-
tionals, picked eight hurlers. Three
of them were Dodgers, and two
of them Cardinals.
* * *
IN ALL THE Dodgers and Card-
inals each landed seven players
on the 26-man squad, which in-
cluded first baseman Eddie Wait-
kus of the Phillies, as an honorary
member. Waitkus is recovering
from a gun-shot wound inflicted
by a crazed girl admirer.
Another surprise nominee to
the squad which meets the
American League All-Stars in
the 16th annual game at Brook-
lyn's Ebbets Field next Tuesday
is Ewell Blackwell, Cincinnati's
righthander. Blackie, convalesc-
ing from a kidney operation,
has only one victory this year.
As expected, Southworth chose
Brooklyn's aces, Preacher Roe
(8-2) and Ralph Branca (10-2)
but his choice of Rookie Don New-
combe (6-2) was another eyebrow
lifter. The two Cardinal nominees
were lefthander Howie Pollet (10-
5) and George Munger (6-3).
** *
ROUNDING OUT the big pitch-
ing eight are Warren Spahn (9-7)
and Vern Bickford (10-4) of the
Boston Braves, and Blackwell (1-
0).
Only two were members of the
1948 National League team which
was defeated at St. Louis, 5-2.
They are Branca and Blackwell.t
Ignored were two Philadelphia
stalwarts with fine records this
year, Ken Heintzelman (10-5)
and Robin Roberts (9-6). Ken
Raffensberger (8-6) of Cincin-
nati, whose four shut outs leads
the major leagues in that re-
spect, also was passed up..
The rest of the team followed
the dictates of the 4,637,743 fans
who participated in the nation-
wide poll. Southworth, bound only
to use the starting players named
in the poll, followed the vote all
down the line. Pitchers were not
chosen in the voting.
* * *
THE STARTERS, as chosen by
the poll, will be Johnny Mize of
the New York Giants, first base;
Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn, second
base; Rookie Eddie Kazak, St.
Louis, third base; Pee Wee Reese,
Brooklyn, shortstop; Ralph K~iner

of Pittsburgh, leading both majors
in home runs with 21, Stan Musial,
St. Louis, and Willard Marshall,
New York, outfielders; and Andy
Seminick, Philadelphia, catcher.
Mize is the "veteran," having
played with the Nationals in eight
previous games.
The Giants got four playersj
on the squad, the champion
Braves, the Reds and Phillies,
two apiece, and the Chicago
Cubs and Pittsburgh, one each.
Blackwell tops the pitchers in
number of inter-league classics.
This will be his fourth All-Star
game. Pollet, Munger and.Branca
now are named to their third, and
it is the second for Spahn. For
Roe, Bickford and Newcombe, it
will be their first shot against the
Americans.
AFTER MIZE, the next veteran
is catcher Walker Cooper, recent-
ly traded by the Giants to the
Reds. Cooper was third choice
among the receivers and is on the
squad for the seventh time. Mu-
sial, Enos Slaughter and Marty
Marion of the Cardinals will be
making their sixth showing, and
it will be No. 5 for Reese.
Andy Pafko, only member of
the Cubs on the squad, and Al
Schoendienst of the Cardinals
are on the squad for the third
time. Players making the team
for the second time are Kiner,
Marshall, Bob Thomson and Sid
Gordon of the Giants, and Wait-
kus, who has been invited to sit
on the bench in civilian clothes.
ST. LOUIS - (A') - Gerry
Priddy singled pitcher Tom Fer-
rick home with the winning run
to give the St. Louis Browns a
13th inning 6 to 5 triumph over
the Detroit Tigers last night.
Detroit broke the tie in the
12th with a walk and two
singles for one runb ut with two
out in the last of that frame
Jack Graham came up with his
second homer of the game to
send it along one more inning.

Four Teams
Unbeaten in
I-M Softball
Four teams were still unbeaten
in the Fraternity-Residence Hall
Intramural softball league after
yesterday afternoon's second round
of play. t
Strauss Hall, Phi Kappa Psi,
Alpha Chi Sigma, and Lambda
Chi Alpha each hung up their
second straight triumph to share
the lead in the early loop stand-
ings.
* * *
BEHIND THE four-hit pitching
of Al Sullivan, Phi Kappa Psis
thrashed Zeta Beta Tau, 15-6. The
winners manhandled the ZBT
hurling staff for 12 safe blows.
Alpha Chi Sigma Pitcher Al
Berckman throttled Theta Chi,
13-0, allowing only one hit,
while Strauss Hall was gaining
a 15-5 win over Theta Delta
Chi. Bob Caton scattered 11
Theta Xi hits while his Lambda
Chi Alpha teammates pounded
out 18 safeties to secure the
12-8 verdict.
Ken Atzel pitched and batted
Gamma Delta to a 6-4 triumph
over Phi Kappa Tau in what was
probably the best game of the
day. A close pitching duel all the
way, Atzel touched Phi Kappa
Tau's Joe Cowley for a second-
inning grand slam home run to
give his team the margin of vic-
tory.
Sigma Chi broke into th'e win
column withea 7-0 shutout deci-
sion over the Phi Gamma Deltas

CINCINNATI-4P-The usually
mild-mannered Cincinnati Reds,
paced by Walker Cooper's trio of
three-run homers, were hotter
than the near 100 degree weather
yesterday as they annihilated the
Chicago Cubs, 23-4, for the biggest
score of the major league season.
Cooper, who drove in 10 runs in
all, had six hits in seven trips,
showing the way in the Reds 26-
hit attack on six Chicago pitchers.
His' three homers equalled the
feat, earlier this season, of the
Philadelphia Phillies' Andy Sem-
inick and the Detroit Tigers' Pat
Mullin.

Jimmy Adams, a chubby Scots-
man, ripped off a sizzling 67 at
Royal St. Georges today to out-
shoot 95 rivals in the first round
of the British Open Golf Cham-
pionship.
A putter that performed beau-
tifully in perfect weather enabled
the 38-year-old Adams to com-
plete the initial test in the 72-
hole medal play tournament with
a slender one stroke lead.

Harry Bradshaw of Ireland,

Big Coop's bat boomed again for

as the Reds again scored six runs.
Ted Kluszewski also homered in
that -frame with Grady Hatton on
base.
COOPER'S NEXT trip to the
plate was in the seventh. Two men
were on base and the Redleg

a blast over the left field wall.

Top Pros Start
Reading Open
READING, Pa.-(P)-The reign-
ing kingpins of professional golf,
National Open Champion Cary
Middlecoff and P.G.A. ruler Sam
Snead, led the touring brigade
here yesterday for another assault
on par in the $15,000 Reading
Open starting today.
Snead, fresh from a dazzling
victory in the Washington Star
Open, was installed as favorite,
partly on that triumph and partly
because the short Reading Coun-
try Club course seems exactly suit-
ed to his game. The course meas-
ures only 6,001 yards, with a par
of 34-36-70.
That's just the kind of a layout
the long-hitting Sammy likes.
The same thing might be said,
however, about most of the touring
pros. They all can smack long
drives. Middlecoff, who beat out
Snead in the open and finished
two strokes behind him at Wash-
ington, figures to give Sammy a
close tussle. So does Chick Har-
bert, Johnny Palmer, Skip Alex-
ander, Jimmy Demaret, Jim Fer-
rier, Vic Ghezzi and the other
long hitters. The field numbers
