Cleveland Indians broke their sec-
ond place tie with the Boston Red
Bob Feller, with help from Lou
Brissie, pitched the Indians to a
4-2 victory over the Philadelphia
Athletics. The victory was Fel-
ler's 17th, highest in the majors.
The Red Sox dropped a 2-1 deci-
sion to the Detroit Tigers and
dropped into third place, 1 /2
games back of the Yanks. Johnny

The Browns and Yanks were
locked in a 1-1 tie until the sixth
inning when the Yanks broke
the game wide open with a six-
run rally. Two runs scored on
delayed throws to the plate, Yogi
Berra knocked home the three
with a bases-loaded double and

homer for the Yanks in the sev-

base blows. The victory was Ku-,

To Zone Finals
RYE, N.Y.-()P)-Herbie Flam of
Los Angeles and Vic Seixas of Phi-
ladelphia, a patched-up doubles
team playing together for the
first time, crushed Mexico's Davis
Cup hopes in 49 bristling minutes
yesterday and sent the United
States into the final round of the
American Zone tennis competition.
The youthful American tandem
swept over Mexico's veteran inter-
national brother combination, Ro-
lando and Armando Vega, 6-4, 6-2,
6-0, at the Westchester Country
Club to give the United States a
3-0 lead in the series.

.Cadets Hold Pep' M eeting
NEW YORK-(IP)-A confiden-
tial poll of the big league club own-
ers made by the Associated Press
indicated yesterday there is no
outstanding candidate in the field
for commissioner of baseball.
In fact, strong opposition was
expressed against making a final
choice at the meeting to be held
Tuesday (Aug. 7).
INSTEAD THE sentiment seems
to be to narrow down the list of
candidates to three or four, with
the final ballot coming some weeks
In order to get the right man,
said one owner, baseball is ready
to boost the salary to $75,000
yearly. A. B. Chandler, who was
refused re-election after serving
since 1945, received $65,000.
Several owners mentioned the
possibility of a military man. The
name most widely discussed in
this connection is General Doug-
OTHERS TALKED of a business
man. So far no top flight bus-
iness executive has been mentioned
except James A. Farley,
Three big baseball names came
up spontaneously in the discus-
sions-Ford Frick, president of
the National League; George
Trautman, head of the minor
Jeagues; and Warren Giles, pre-
sident of the Cincinnati Reds.
One owner said he wanted to
settle Tuesday on about four can-
didates-one each from the worlds
of baseball, public life, business,
and military affairs.
"I am emphatically not in fa-
vor of a politician or a baseball
man. A politician might be in
favor now, and out of favor to-
morrow. A baseball man is sure
to have some petty grievances. I
just want to narrow down the
field, and then take a good look
at each man. We don't want to
make a snap judgment."
To the direct question," have
you a candidate?" Every club own-
er flatly said "No."
WEST POINT, N.Y. - (k) - 1
Tight-lipped officials at West
Point steadfastly refused to give
names in the scandal involving 90

Lopez Says Rain Rule
Hurts Baseball, Fans
PHILADELPHIA - P) -- Ball'
games halted by rain in the late
innings should be played to com..

ager of the Cleveland Indians.

or 5 innings (visitors hold the
edge) has been played.
"IT ISN'T FAIR to the teams
or the fans. Every game should
be played to completion even if it
takes another day to finish the
job," Lopez said.
The Indians' skipper referred
to the now famous Chicago
White Sox-New York Yankee
game recently in which the Sox
scored three runs in the ninth
inning to take a lead that sub-
sequently was washed out by a
Many big league managers and
players are of the same opinion.
They think the rain rule is ridicu-
lous. Just in case big league base-

It happened in 1945. Hank
Greenberg came out of the Army
to hit a bases-loaded home run
on the last day of the season to
win the pennant for Detroit.
But Big Hank almost didn't get
to hit that now famous circuit
clout. It wps a dark, damp day
in St. Louis for that final game
seven years ago. A twin-bill was

If Detroit had not been able to
play that day they would have
won the American League pen-
nant. The second place Washing-
ton Senators, who had finished
their schedule a week earlier, were
exactly one game behind. They
needed a double Detroit defeat to
tie for the flag. Rain could have
cheated Washington out of its
chance for a pennant tie.
Thanks to Greenberg's home
run, the Tigers won the only game
played and avoiding being called
"rain champs." That's why Lopez
urges that all scheduled games be
