By% Pastrano
CHICAGO (R) - Springy Willie
Willie Pastrano of New Orleans,
combining a sharp left jab with
footwork of a tap-dancer, last
night gained a unanimous 10-
round decision over Chuck Spieser
in Chicago Stadium.
The 19-year-old Pastrano re-
mained unbeaten in six bouts this
year with a nimbleness afoot that
had his 26-year-old Detroit foe
somewhat baffled most of the way
Spieser, U.S. Olympic boxing
team captain in 1952'from Michi-
gan State, was effective with a left
hook to Pastrano's body but could
not connect solidly to the head
as the southern lad bobbed and
weaved. He proved as hard to hit
as a fly.
Referee Frank Gilmer called it
98-94 in favor of Pastrano. Judge
Ed Heintz had it 95-91 and Judge
John Bray 97-88.

In that 10th the Reds loaded the
bases on singles by Rally Post and
Gus Bell and an intentional walk
to Bob Thurman.

Role of 'Dumb'
Belittled byBr
NEW YORK (P) - "Dumb ball
players don't win pennants. They
have good years, yes, but they
don't win pennants."
This is the opinion and baseball
creed of Fresco Thompson, 52-
year-old Brooklyn Dodgers' vice
president, who serves as czar of
the second largest minor league
system in 6rganized baseball.
Brain Over Brawn
"The idea that baseball is a game
for strong backs and weak minds
is ridiculous," said Thompson.

The mp's

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (P) - The
American Assn., hoping to speed
up baseball games, has author-
ized umpires to enforce the
automatic ejection rule in pro-
tests of ball and strike calls.
Such action was authorized at
a meeting of directors July 21.
They said that effective Aug.
1, umpires will eject any mana-
ger, coach or player who leaves
his position to protest a ball
or strike call.

Barbara McIntire, Rollins College

The heat was blamed by Misses
