Browning Heads Slate
Of U.S. Olympic Divers

NEW YORK-A)-Dave "Skip-
py" Browning, a lithe blond from
Dallas, Tex., turned in a spectacu-
lar performance at Aastoria Park
Pool yesterday to win the No. 1
spot on the United States three-
meter Olympic diving team.
His teammates will be Robert
Clotworthy of Westfield,.N.J., and
Miller Anderson of Columbus,
Ohio, both Ohio State products
and pupils of Mike Peppe, Ohio
State and Olympic diving coach.
Anderson was competing for the
Coca Cola Swim Club of Cincin-
nati.
BROWNING, 21-year-old sen-
ior at the University of Texas,
rolled up an impressive point to-
tal of 1,037.45 in coming out on
top in the day long competition
which drew 29 competitors.
Clotworthy, in second posi-
tion, scored 942 points, and An-
derson, 29-year-old World War
II veteran who wears a steel
plate in his thigh as a result of
an injury, finished third with
923.90.
Browning, son of a former in-
tercollegiate diving champion and
holder of the National AAU and
intercollegiate one and three-me-
T ter indoor titles, was out in front
by a good margin during the
morning competition when the
field was cut. from 29 to eight.
* * *
CLOTWORTHY, 1951 national
AAU outdoor three-meter cham-
pion, was in third place behind
Major Sammy Lee of the U.S.
Army at the end of the morning
session. Lee, who won the plat-
form diving title in the 1948
Olympics, "dropped to fourth in
the afternoon.
A mild surprise of the day's
trials was the failure of Morley
Shapiro of Ohio State, who fin-
ished second in the National
AAU competition, to qualify for
the eight-man final compet-
tion. His total for the six morn-
ing events was 365.25, giving him
no better than ninth place.

The Elsegundo, Calif. Swim Club
team and the New York Atlantic
Club "A" team advanced to the
semi finals of the water polo com-
petition with convincing victories.
El Segundo, with Bob Hughes
accounting for nine goals, defeat-
ed the New York AC "B" team;
15 to 2, and the NYAC "A" team
splashed to a 11 to 2 victory over.
the Portage Park team of Chicago.
El Segundo will meet the Ful-
lerton-Whittier squad of Whittier,
"alif., and NYAC "A" will meet
the Illinois Athletic club in semi-
finals. Both Fullerton - Whittier
and Illinois AC drew byes.

IM Contest
Rod's Boys ripped into Delta
Sigma Phi, 14-5, last night as in-
tra-mural summer session action
swung into its second day.
Earl Riskey, returning to the
warm weather softball wars for
the first time in six summers,
scattered nine hits among the
losers. The popular IM director
gave up only one earned run.
Fletcher Hall capitalized on a
seven run first inning to defeat
Zeta Psi, 8-4. Ace Elsner high-
lighted the frame with a grand
slam home run.
In a tight pitching game, the
Jokers outscored the Hard
Rocks, 4-1. Bill Hainsworth
struck out nine men for the
winners. The Hard Rocks have
been close contenders for the
summer championship for the
past three years.
Other scores were : Social Re-
search 11, Scott House 3; Van
Tyne 10, Chemistry 'B' 6; and

DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers,
amidst reports that Manager Red
Rolfe is about to be fired, reared
up with three-run homers by Vic
Wertz and Joe Ginsberg yester-
day to down the Chicago White
Sox, 6-4.
Rolfe, a champion of the long
ball, got just what he wanted yes-
terday.
* * *
WERTZ slammed a tremendous
blow into the upper right field
bleachers in the first inning. It
was his 15th of the season, tying
him with Yogi Berra of the Yan-
kees for the American League lea-
dership.
Then after Chicago had tied
the count in the next frame,
Ginsberg poked one into the up-
per right field stands. It was his
second.
Freddy Hutchinson, who re-
lieved starter Bill Wight in the
second, was credited with the win,
his second against one loss. Billy
Hoeft was called in in the ninth
to stem a late Chicago rally that
had netted oie run.
LOU KRETLOW, unpredictable
ex-Tiger, started the game for
Chicago but was lifted for a pinen-
hitter his first" scheduled time up.
Howie Judson, who like Kretlow'
had no record previously, was the
loser. Hector Brown and Bill Ken-
nedy also saw action for the Sox.
Jerry Priddy had walked and
Fred Hatfield had singled be-
fore Wertz hit his 425-footer.
The White Sox came back with
three runs in the top of the sec-

SAM DENTE then singled, send-

Dente took third on the fly and

Bob Swift was bounced from
the game for arguing with plate
umpire Jim Duffy during this
Chicago rally, so Ginsberg came
in along with Hutchinson for an
all-new Detroit battery.
Johnny Groth had singled and
Lenhardt had walked ahead of
Ginsberg's homer in the fifth.
Sam Mele singled Fox home

DETROIT-The future status
of Detroit Tiger Manager Red
Rolfe, long a subject of specula-
tion and argument in this base-
ball-minded city, may be settled
once and for all Saturday.
That's the day set aside by the
last-place club's board of direc-
tors for a special meeting on the
managerial subject. If most of
the speculation is borne out, that
will be the one-time Yankee star's
last day at the Tiger helm,
FOR WEEKS now fans who de-
mand a first division team at all
times here have been howling for
a change. As the Tigers have
sunk deeper and deeper into the
American League cellar-they're
down 181/2 games now-those cries
have multiplied apid grown louder.
In recent days most of the
speculation has assumed that
Rolfe will go, and the only
questions are when and who
will succeed him.
One of the city's best authori-
ties on the subject, sports editor
H. G. Salsinger of the Detroit
News, said yesterday that both
Rolfe and Third Base Coach Dick
Bartell will be asked to "take a
vacation" until the end of the
year.
* * *
FOR ALL practical purposes,
that would be equivalent to firing
since neither of their contracts
runs beyond the end of the season.
Salsinger said First Base
Coach Ted Lyons, former Chi-
cago White Sox pilot, would be
named to run the club for the
remainder of the season.
Ralfe said neither President
Walter O. Briggs, Jr. nor other
club officials have discussed his
status with him. He also said he
had not heard of the directors'
meeting until reporters told him
about it. Bartell could not be'
reached for comment.
LATER BRIGGS told Sports
Editor Lyall Smith of the Free
Press:
"I have decided to ask for a
change.
"I am certain that the re-
mainder of the board will go
along with me," Briggs was
quoted as saying. "I feel that
something must be done. Just
who the new manager will be
for the rest of the year is a7

question we will decide at the
meeting,."
The session of the six-man
board of directors is set for 5
p.m. Saturday.
THE BULK of the complaints
against Rolfe have centered
around his two platoon system--
pulling left-handed batters out
when left-handed pitchers go in-
to a game and jerking right-
handed batters against right-
handed pitching. He has done
this at times after a batter has
hit well his first few times up.
Pirates Slide
By Cubs, 3-2
CHICAGO - (P)---Veteran Ted
Wilks' stout relief pitching en-
abled the Pittsburgh Pirates to
defeat the Chicago Cubs, 3-2, be-
fore a Ladies' Day crowd of 17,-
768 persons yesterday. Wilks al-
lowed only two hits in two innings
after rescuing starter Forrest
Main from a bases full and none
out situation in the eighth. The
Pirates won on three hits off Wil-
lard Ramsdell and Dutch Leonard
to square the series at a game
apiece.
Golf Tourney
In MotorCity
DETROIT - (AP) - An 18-hole
best-ball match, with a $3,000
purse at stake, will serve as a
prelude today for the Motor City
Open Gold tournament scheduled
to open tomorrow at Red Run
Golf Club.
About 70 invited pros will
team with 70 Red Run members
in the curtain raiser. A $1,000
check will go to the winning
pro.
Leading the roster of pros who
will be playing tomorrow are Jul-
ius Boros, making his first start
since winning the National Open;
Jim Turnesa, who was crowned
national PGA champ last week,
and Lloyd Mangrum, defending
Motor City open champion.
