Bosox Gain on Idle Yanks;
Tigers Edge Athletics, 6-5
NEW YORK-(JP -Clyde (Clutch) Volmer came through in the
pinch again yesterday, blasting a grand slam homer in the 16th in-
ning with two out to give the Boston Red Sox an 8-4 triumph over
the Cleveland Indians.
Vollmer's payoff smash enabled the Red Sox to snap their second
place tie with the Indians and ,'

move to within a half game of
the league-leading New York
Yankees in the tight American
League pennant scramble. The
loss dropped the Indians 11/2
games behind the Yanks. The
Yanks' game with the fading Chi-
cago White Sox was rained out.
VOLLMER, whose timely hit-
ting during the past month has
highlighted the Red Sox rise, con-
nected off Bob Feller, fourth
Cleveland pitcher. The blow was
Vollmer's 18th of the year and his
13th of the month.
L e f t y Mickey McDermott
shared the spotlight with Voll-
mer. McDermott went all the
way for the Red Sox allowing
11 hits. McDermott fanned 15
and walked only one. The
strikeouts enabled Mickey to
take the major league lead in
that department with 102. It
was McDermott's second long
exhibition of the season. He
pitched 17 of 19 innings against
Chicago on July 12.
The Red Sox nicked Starter
Early Wynn for a 2-0 lead in the
first inning. The Indians tied it
up with single runs in the sev-
enth and eighth frames.
.* .
CLEVELAND TOOK a 3-2 lead
in the 15th on a' double by Bob
Kennedy and pinch single by
George Stirnweiss but Vollmer de-
livered a clutch single in the last
half to score Goodman and'-tie the
score. The Indians moved ahead,
4-3, in the 16th when Ray Boone
doubled and scored on a single
by Larry Doby.
The Sox came right back in
their half. With one out Johnny
Pesky walked, and scored on
Williams' double to left. Vern
Stephens also walked and after
Bob Doerr flied out for the
second out, Goodman strolled
to load the bases. Vollmer took
the first pitch for a ball and
then rode Feller's next delivery

League day game the Detroit Tig-
ers edged the Philadelphia Ath-
letics, 6-5. Pinch-hitter Charley
Keller's two-run double in the
eighth provided Detroit with its
margin of victory. Marlin Stuart,
relieved by Virgil Trucks and Hal
White, gained his third victory
without a loss.
A night game between the St.
Louis Browns and Washington
Nats at Washington was post-
poned.
National League action was
highlighted by the Philadelphia
Phils who posted their fourth
straight shutout victory. Russ
Meyer authored the blanking,
beating the Chicago Cubs, 1-0.
The Phils are two games shy
of the major league record for
consecutive shutouts. The Pitts-
burgh Pirates set the mar) of
six in 1903.
Meyer permitted seven singles
and didn't walk a batter in best-
ing Cal McLish and two relief
pitchers. The loss was the Cubs'
fifth straight and their 11th in 15
meetings with the Phils.
Andy Seminick doubled and
scored the game's only run in the
fifth inning. Meyer bunted Sem-
inick to third and Richie Ashburn
singled the stocky receiver home.

DETROIT-{A'} - Charlie Geh-
ringer, one of Detroit Tigers' most
popular stars, will return in a
front office role.
The way was paved for the re-
turn of the silent, curly-haired
Gehringer with a surprise an-
nouncement yesterday that Wil-
liam G. (Billy) Evans would re-
sign as general manager and vice
president, effective at the close
of the season.
* *; * .
THUS GEHRINGER, an idol of
Detroit fans, returns to Briggs
Stadium after an absence of nine
years.
The front office change was
announced as the Tigers were

staggering through their worst
season in five years.
Owner Walter O. Briggs said
Gehringer was the only man con-
sidered for the position.
* * * *
"MY TASK was to persuade
Charley to take the job," Briggs
said.
Reached on a golf course, Geh-
ringer disclosed that Red Rolfe
would be back as manager next
season.
"I like Red and I think he is
a wonderful manager," Gehrin-
ger said. "What's more impor-
tant, Mr. Briggs likes Red. He
told me so."

Rosen hits the dirt in vain as he is forced at second in the first
half of a double play during the Yankees-Indians game at Yankee
Stadium Thursday. Leaping Phil Rizzuto, New York shortstop,

Harry Simpson for the double killing as Umpire Bill McGowan

Gehringer said Briggs "just
didn't give me a chance to say no.
He held out his hand for about
10 seconds waiting for me to
shake on the bargain and finally
got embarrassed, grasped my
hand and shook it."
* * *
THE FORMER STAR said the
negotiations took place 10 days
ago.
Gehringer ended a 19-year ca-
reer with the Tigers in 1942 and
no wis a partner in a lucrative
manufacturing business.
T h e popular, soft-spoken,
Gehringer was one of the
game's greatest second base-
men. He had a lifetime batting
average of .321 and in 1937 was
named the American League's
most valuable player. The hold-
er of numerous other records,
he batted .321 in -three world
series and .504 in six All-Star
games. He was elected to base-
ball's Hall of Fame at Coopers-
town, N. Y., in 1949.
In Philadelphia, Manager Red
Rolfe and his players received the
announcement just prio'r to the
start of their game with the Ath-
letics. Rolfe was visibly shaken.
* * *
"BILLY HAS BEEN a great man
to work for," Rolfe said. "The
blame in some quarters for the
team's failure this year has been
pinned directly on Billy. If he is
to blame, then so am I. He let
me run the club completely,"
Rolfe termed Evans "a vic-
tim of circumstances" this sea-
son.
The red-haired manager said
he was surprised at the selection
of Gehringer but he had high
praise for the former Tiger
great.
"He understands ball players
and ball player psychology. That
is a mighty important thing for
a general manager," said Rolfe.
"It is a rough jo bthat Geh-
ringer is stepping into," he added.
"Naturally we face a real re-
building job."
Rolfe said his own status as
1952 manager of the Tigers had
not been discussed.

Yankee Win
Protested by
WhiteSox
NEW YORK - W) -- Manager
Paul Richards of the Chicago
White Sox telegraphed a protest
to Will Harridge, president of the
American League, on Friday's
night game with the New York
Yankees.
The Yanks won, 3 to 1, but Chi-
cago had rallied for three runs in
the top of the ninth when the
umpires, after a 62-minute wait,
called the game because of rain
shortly after midnight. The score
then reverted to the eighth inn-
ing-and a 3-1 Yankee victory.
* * *
IN THE 150-word telegram to
Harridge, Richards asked that the
game be resumed in the top of
the ninth. At the time it was
called the White Sox were lead-
ing 4-3 andthad the bases loaded
with one out.
Hank Soar, the plateumpire,
said he,-called the game because'
the field was unplayable.
"Unplayable field," Rich rds
fumed after the game. "Th4's
no such thing. All they had to do
was take the cover off. Ten min-
utes after they called it off, it
stopped raining."
* * *
THE CRUSHING loss-Chica-
go's seventh in eight games-left
the White Sox 41/ games behind
the league-leading Yankees. Yes-
terday's game between the Sox
and Yanks was wash1ed out.
Reminded that the umpires
have all the way once the game
starts, Richards said:
"That's the pitiful part of it.
Those incompetent guys running
a million dollar business."
In Chicago, Frank Lane, Sox
general manager, backed up Rich-
ards' demand that the game be
resumed where it left off.
* * *
LANE ISSUED A scorching
statement blaming "stalling tac-
tics" of the New York club and
"ineptness" of Umpire Soar.

BULLETIN
DETROIT - (P) - Burwell
(Bumpy) Jones, 18-year-old De-
troit lad, shattered all American
records for the men's 300-meter
individual medley with his time
of 3:52.2.
The University of Michigan
speedster battled on even terms
with James Thomas of Chapel
Hill, N.C., through the breast-
stroke and backstroke laps.
Disqualifies 'M'
Relay Team
DETROIT - (P) -- Ohio State
University was declared the win-
ner of the men's 300-meter relay
event yesterday when National
AAU swimming and diving judges
disqualified first-place Michigan
for using an ineligible swimmer.
The announcement came nearly
48 hours after Ohio State Coach
Mike Peppe had protested Michi-
gan's win. Peppe said Michigan
used Don Hill on the relay team
in violation of a Big Ten rule that
bans current competition by
freshmen.
SUBSEQUENTLY, PEPPE with-
drew his protest but the AUU Na-
tional Registration Committee de-
clined to drop the matter and
made its ruling today. The an-
nouncement came from National
Secretary Dan Ferris.
Michigan finished in 3:16.8
minutes. Ohio State's time was
3:17.4. The Ohio State team
including Backstroke Jack Tay-
lor, Breaststroker Gerry Holan
and Free Styler Bill Sonner.
Behind Ohio State in the re-
vised standings in the event now
are: second, New Haven Swim
Club; third, Cuban Athletic Fed-
eration; fourth, California Swim+
Club of Los Angeles; fifth, Michi-
gan State College; Sixth, Louis-i
ville YMCA; seventh, North Car-
olina College.

Jones pulled away in the closing
freestyle lap to win easily.
Joe Verdeur of Los Angeles
set the previous mark of 3:53.7
in 1949.
DETROIT-(I)-Ford Konno of
Hawaii bounced back last night
to whip John Marshall and up-
start Wayne Moore by a half-pool
length in their 800-meter free-
style battle at the National AAU
swimming and diving meet.
It was Konno's second win in
the meet. He also bested Mar-
shall in the 1500 meter (metric
mile) duel.
THE THREE SPED along on
even terms until the halfway
mark. Then the 18-year-old
Konno flashed ahead and prac-
tically waltzed home, finishing in
9:39.9.
His victory avenged the upset
win scored by Moore, of Nichols,
Conn., in Friday's 400-meter
freestyle championship event.
At the last minute Moore
moved past Marshall and wound
up second as 4,000 fans roared.
Marshall finished third.
FOR THE 22-YEAR-OLD Aus-
sie it meant comnplete failure to
recapture any of the three crowns
(400, 800, and 1500 meter free-
style) he won last year at Seattle.
Mary Freeman, rising 17-
year-old star from Washington,
D.C., also grabbed her second
championship. She came from
behind to nip Shiela Donahue
of Lafayette, Ind., by an arm's
length in the women's 100-me-
ter backstroke.
Miss Freeman splashed home in
1:18.9 and Miss Donahue in
1:19.3. Friday night Miss Free-
man won the 200-meter back-
stroke and almost won the 300-
meter medley relay, finishing sec-
ond.
DICK 'CLEVELAND of Hawaii
and Ohio State, who only yester-
day afternoon set a new American
record in qualifying heats of the
men's 100-meter freestyle, breezed
to an easy victory in the cham-
pionship finals.

Two Swini
Channel;
Seven Fail
DOVER, Eng.-- UP) - Two men
swam the English Channel yes-
terday, the first to make a suc-
cessful crossing of the 21-mile
stretch this season.
Seven others failed in the at-
tempt, and a former channel
swimmer plunged in to have a
try at it the hard way-England
to France.
* * *
THE TWO who were successful
crawled ashore in St. Margaret's
Bay here. They were Abdel Litif
Abou Heif, 22, an Egyptian stu-
dent, and Phil Rising, 41, an Eng-
lish watchmaker.
Abdel Litif did it in 15 hours
and 42 minutes. Rising took 14
minutes longer.
The seven who made the at-
tempt and failed were five Egyp-
tians, a Swede, and a 17-year-old
English girl.
PHILIP MICKMAN, 20, who in
1949 became the youngest man
ever to swim from France to Eng-
land, set out last night at 8:10
p.m. GMT ((3:10 p.m. EST) in
an attempt to makeit across the
hard way..
Among those on the Dover
beach to see Mickman off were
Florence Chadwick, of San Diego,
Calif., who made the France-to-
England swim last year and who
is in training here for another
attempt, and Mrs. Betty Cohn, of
New York, known as the "swim-
ming grandmother."
