still is rated as the only logical
contender for Ezzard Charles'
The National Boxing Associa-
tion released its quarterly ratings
yesterday and they show the
standouts among the heavyweights
are few indeed.
For not only was the 37-year-
old' Louis the only one listed as a
logical- contender; the NBA also
rated only two fighters, Rex Layne
of Utah and the apparently in-
destructible Jersey Joe Walcott,
as deserving the description, "out-
Sugar Ray Robinson, consider-
ed by many as the finest fighting
machine in the business today,
got an indirect vote of approval
from the NBA.
Robinson has polished off every-
one around, so much so that the
NBA could find no logical con-
tender for his middleweight title,
and had to go to England, Aus-
tralia and France to find boxers
worthy to be called "outstanding."
Champion, Ezzard Charles, Ohio.

inson, slender right hander of the
Detroit Tigers, whitewashed the
Chicago White Sox out of, first
place in the American League race
yesterday as he beat them handily
8-0 on a five hitter.
The loss cost the Chicagoans at
least temporarily the league lead-
ership they regained Wednesday
from the New York Yankees.
PAUL R I C H A R D S' amazing
Chicagoans had not been blanked
before this season but they never
had a chance against Hutchinson.
Only 34 men batted against
him and he set the ever-trying
White Sox down 1, 2, 3 in four
Only one Chicagoan got as far
as third base. That was Gus Niar-
hos, who reached first on Johnny
Lipon's boot in the second inning,
took second base on Chico Car-
rasquel's single and advanced to
third on a sacrifice.

HUTCHINVSON gave up only
one walk while fanning three. The
White Sox didn't get the ball out
f the infield in the last three in-
nings as they were topping
Hutch's tantalizing stuff.
The Tigers' win, which gave
them the series two to one, was
charged against their old team-
mate Lou Kretlow. He was
touched for a single run in the
first and retired under fire dur-
ing the Tigers' seven run third

The Boston Braves had two of

fifth with Howell aboard. Howell

THE PIRATES played without
the services of home run slugger
Ralph Kiner who started a three-
day suspension for an argument
with the umpires over a close play
at first. Kiner didn't even come
to the ball park. Neither did many
fans. Official paid, attendance
dropped to "2,212, plus a Ladies
Day gathering of 1,542.
The St. Louis Cardinals blast-
ed four Chicago Cubs pitchers
for 14 hits, including five for
extra bases, and won, 10 to 2,
before a Ladies' Day crowd of
Cliff Chambers of recent no-hit
fame, limited the Cubs to five hits
in his season's fifth victory
against eigth losses.
IN TWO DAYS, the Cardinals
have bombarded eight Cub pitch-
ers for 20 runs and 26 hits.
Leading the Cardinal attack
were Wally Westlake and Red
Schoendienst. Westlake doubled,
tripled and singled, Schoendienst
doubled once and singled twice.
The New York Yankees opened
up a half game lead on Chicago
in the American League race by
whipping Washington, 8-2, behind
Bob Kuzava's four-hitter.
Home runs by Ted Williams (his
15th) and Bobby Doerr (his 12th)
carried the Boston Red Sox to
their tenth straight 1951 victory
over the Philadelphia Athletics as
the third placers rolled to an 8 to

a four run seventh inning rally
which sewed up Boston's wins.

2nd Straight 75
PORTRUSH, N. Ireland - () _
Max Faulkner, a debonair British
Ryder Cup player with a red-hot
putter, beat the chill, drizzling rain
home yesterday to carve out a two-
stroke lead in the British Open
Golf Championship after 36 holes
that knocked two of four Ameri-
cans out of the tournament.
Out early in the day before the
drizzle commenced soaking the
Royal Portrush course's rolling
dunes, Faulkner scrambled around
in the rough but capitalized on his
putting to post a two-under-par 70
for a two-round total of 141.
ONLY ONE other player, Nor-;
man Sutton of England, was ahead
of par after two trips around the
layout. The little former profes-
sional soccer player also got a 70,
giving him a total of 143 at the
tournament's halfway mark, good
for second place.
Bobby Locke, the South Afri-
can seeking his third straight
British Open title, bagged a 74
for a 145 total.
Frank Stranahan, the Toledo,
Ohio, shotmaker who won the Bri-
tish Amateur crown in 1950, and
Chuck Rotar, who was a Canton,
Ohio, pro before heading for Ger-
many and duty with the U. S.
Army, were among 46 players who
qualified for the final 36 holes to-
morrow. Playing in the drizzle,
Stranahan got himself his second
straight 75 for a 150 total. Rotar
also matched his 76 of yesterday
for a total of 152.
The two Americans who fell by
the wayside were Art Clark of
Huntington, W. Va., and Al Zim-
merman, the pro from Portland,
Ore. Zimmerman, who got an 81
yesterday, developed p u t t i n g
nerves the second day, ,too, and
shot an 83 for a total of 164.

Burke, Jr., of Houston, Tex., gave
par another terrific beating yes-
terday as he turned in his second
straight 66-six under par-to
zoom into the lead at the halfway
mark of the 72-hole Canadian
Open Golf Tournament.
Burke showed no fear of Missis-
saugua Golf Club's well trapped
course, made even trickier by a
Wednesday thunderstorm which
left the course well soaked today.
His slightly-terrific 132 zoomed
Burke into the lead, as Jim Fer-
rier of San Francisco and Aus-
tralia faltered badly. Fedrier
burned up the course with a 65
Wednesday to take the lead, but
ran into troubles yesterday and
settled for a par 72. That left him
five strokes behind Burke.
Fred Hawkins of El Paso stayed
right on the heels of fellow Texan
Burke, carding a 69 to go with his
opening day 66. That left him
trailing Burke by three strokes.
Burke never did worse than par
on any hole, despite the high winds
which lashed the soggy course.
That kind of shooting gave the
curly-haired Texan a favorite's
role with the tournament at the

Veeck formally took over the St.
Louis Browns yesterday and an-
nounced he would retain Zach
Taylor manager-for a time, at
At a late afternoon news con-
ference, Veeck also announced
that he was out to build a win-
ning ball team and that Negroes
would be given every opportunity
NEITHER the Browns nor the
St. Louis Cardinals now have Ne-
gro players. The Browns brought
up two - Henry Thompson and
Willard Brown - in 1947. Both
were released before the season
was over. The Redbirds have never
had a Negro in their lineup.
Displaying his usual good hu-
mor, Veeck attended the confer-
ence after signing the papers
putting the club in his hands.
He said a count showed he had
about 220,000 of the 275,000
shares of stock -- more than
enough to exercise his option.
Also at the conference were Bill
and Charley DeWitt, who con-
trolled the club until yesterday,
and several of Veeck's associates
in the present deal.
Veeck said that Rudy Schaffer,
who has been affiliated with him
since his baseball days in Milwau-
kee, would be the Brownies' gen-
"We have a couple of dollars
to spend and we're going to spend'
them," Veeck told reporters.
"Right now the club couldn't bat
its way out of a paper sack and
we're looking for anybody who
can carry a ball bat and handle
Veeck said Taylor had done a
good job as manager but that he
had been handicapped by a lack
of good players. Here, the stunt
man of baseball admitted under
questioning that he was looking
around for someone who eventual-
ly might replace Taylor.
He was asked about Lou Boud-
reau, Joe Gordon and Charlie
Grimm. He said he would hay
to get Boston's permission even
to talk to Boudreau and he hasn't
sought that permission. He indi-
cated he had given Boudreau some
Gordon, Veeck said, is tied up
as manager on the West Coast, at
least for this season.
And Grimm, he added, is happy"

pected to make some changes
