Tiger Stars
Top League
Hit Records.
NEW YORK (P-Al Kaline and
Harvey Kuenn, Detroit's two
youthful stars, are in good posi-
tion to boost the Tigers fancy
record for American League' bat-
ting championships.
The 20-year-old Kaline and 25-
year-old Kuenn are running one-
two for the title. With Kaline
leading the league with a .352 av-
erage and Kuenn at .327, a De-
troit playei' has the possibility to
top the American League hit-
ters for the 20th- time since the
circuit's start in 1901.
Kell Moves Up
George Kell, who won the bat-
ting crown in 1949 and was De-
troit's last titlist, moved from
sixth to third place last week,
with .316.
Now playing for the Chicago
White Sox, the veteran third
baseman, gained five points be-
fore being sidelined with back
trouble.
Brooklyn's Roy Campanella re-
gained the National League bat-
ting lead, boosting his average
eight points to .339. Meanwhile,
Richie Ashburn of the Phils, last
week's pace setter, fell to sec-
ond with a .325 mark.
Snider Drops
Duke Snider of the Dodgers
skidded to third with .321 after
being tied with Campanella for
second last week.
Snider heads the league in runs
batted in with 104 and shares
home run honors with Cincinnati's
Ted Kluszewski, each with 35.
The Tigers' Ray Boone has bat-
ted in the most runs in the Amer-
ican League, 80, and Kaline is
tied with the Yankees' Mickey
Mantle for home run supremacy
with 23 apiece.

The taut American League pen-
nant race hits another of its cru-
cial junctures today when the
four closely bunched contenders
collide in head-to-head series.
The Chicago White Sox, holding
a single game lead over New York
and Cleveland, invades Boston for
three games with the sizzling Red
Sox. The Yankees and Indians
tangle at Yankee Stadium, also
in three games.
Here's how the race looks at a

Donovan Operated On
The White Sox lost the services
of their ace righthander, Dick
Donovan, who underwent an ap-

keep him out of action possibly
for the rest of the season.
Doctors don't expect him to be
fully recovered in less than four
weeks and it'll take additional
time for him to get in shape. The
season has only seven more weeks
to run.

Endeavored
By Argentine
CAIRO, Ill. (A') - Antonio Aber-
tondo, Argentine long-distance
swimmer stroked steadily past the
mouth of the Ohio River yesterday
in his bid to set a new endurance
record for the Mississippi River.
By 12:15 p.m. he was reported
180 miles below St. Louis, his
starting point. He left St. Louis
at 9:43 a.m. CST Saturday-50
hours, 32 minutes earlier.
Worst Stretch Approached
The worst stretch of the Missis-
sippi-and the area where he had
to give up because of exhaustion
three years ago was to be reached
last night.
This includes the New Madrid
bend where the river turns back
north to reach New Madrid, Mo.,
before continuing south. Some
whirlpools are in that stretch as
well as alligator gar, a fish noted
for its vicious bite.

Hart Asks for New Contract
As Lions Begin Full Workouts

{
I
r

YPSILANTI, Mich, (P) - Thev
curious case of Leon Hart re-
mained up in the air yesterday as
the Detroit Lions went through
their first full-scale workout at
Eastern Michigan College.
Hart reportedly is asking for a
new contract, presumably three
years, to compensate him for
coach Buddy Parker's plan of
converting him from an offensive
to a defensive end.
3-Year Pact Sought
Currently, Hart is working on
the final year of a three-year
pact. Apparently he feels there
isn't too much glamor connected
to the rigors of defensive play. So
he wants the Lions to make up for
it with a new contract.
Hart huddled with President
Edwin J. Anderson and General
Manager W. Nicholas Kerbawy
yesterday as the Lions went
through an afternoon drill. After
the conference, Hart drove away
from the training camp and
neither Anderson or Kerbawy had
any comment.
Girard, Schmidt Unsigned
Meanwhile, two other members
of the Lions - halfback Jug Gir-
ard and linebacker Joe Schmidt-
remained unsigned, but both had
the option of working out under
a clause of their old contract.
Both also talked with Anderson
and Kerbawy but no decision was
reached.
In his private office, Parker
outlined some of his plans for
the coming season. One is to
convert Bill Stits from a defensive
to an offensive right halfback.
Another is to use end Jim Doran
solely on offense.

"The switch of Stits isn't defi-
nite yet," Parker said. "We'd like
to experiment to see what he can
do on offense. We know his de-,
fensive capabilities."
Ends, Halfbacks, Fullbacks
Using a blackboard to outline
his plans, Parker said he planned
to use Girard and Doran as his
offensive ends, with Doak Walker
and Dorne Dibble at left halfback,
Stits and Dave Middleton at
right halfback and Bob Hoern-
schemeyer and Lew Carpenter at
fullback.
"Of course, we can interchange
the players as we see fit, as the
situation arises," Parker said.
McDonald "Throwing Well"
Somebody mentioned the name
of Duncan McDonald, the erratic
quarterback whonnever livedup
to expectations at the University
of Michigan.
"He has been throwing the ball
well," was Parker's only comment.
McDonald rates as the fourth
of Detroit's four quarterbacks, be-
hind Bobby Layne, Harry Gilmer
and Paul Held. His chances of
sticking are slim.
_ tionin modern Coolfna

nouncement. "Just a pulled mus-
cle. He'll need some rest."
To Return Soon
Talbert said he didn't know
when Tony would get back in ac-
tion. However, since the injury is
not serious, Trabert doubtless will
be ready for action in the chal-
lenge round.
The challenge round is sched-
uled Aug. 26-28 at Forest Hills and'
Trabert must return to compe-
tition well before that if he is to
be in top playing trim.
Pain Began in Tourney
The 24 - year - old Wimbledon
champion from Cincinnati said
the pain began early last week in
the early rounds of the Eastern
Grass Courts Tournament. It be-
came more intense in the later
rounds.
Trabert feared it was a dislo-
cated disc or a pinched nerve in
his back, either one of which
could have required an operation
and would have been serious.
"Pain Is Terrific"
"It goes all the way from the pit
of my back to my right shoulder,"
Tony said. "Sometimes the pain
is terrific."
Without Trabert, the American
Davis Cup picture would be a dark
one, indeed. Vic Seixas and Ham-
ilton Richardson, the other two
regular team members, have been
badly off form.
Two boys who would help,
Budge Patty in Paris and Dick
Savitt in Houston, Tex., have re-
fused to try for the team.
Meanwhile, the Australians flew
into town yesterday from Mon-
treal where they won the Ameri-
can zone title over Canada.

MILWAUKEE (R) - The ru-
mored ill feeling between Mil-
waukee's Joe Adcock and Giant
pitcher Jim Hearn-not improved
a bit Sunday when a Hearn pitch
broke Adcock's right arm-took a
turn for the better last night.
Adcock, who left Milwaukee
hospital yesterday with his arm
in a cast, reported he was pleased
by a telegram from the New York
hurler.
"Sorry, Joe"
Hearn wired, Adcock said, that
he was "sincerely sorry, Joe. Hop-
ing for a faster return to the
lineup than expected."
r One of Hearn's fast balls
caught the Milwaukee Braves
first baseman just above the
right wrist in the second inning
of Sunday's Braves-Giants game,
breaking a small bone and shelv-
ing Adcock for the remainder of
the season.
f Adcock visited the Braves' club-
house after checking out at the
hospital and again mentioned that

Hearn threw at him three times
on the Giants' last visit to County
Stadium.
Hearn has denied that he de-
liberately tried to nick Adcock
and says he tried without success
to apologize.
A Braves spokesman said Hearn
and Adcock haven't seen eye to
eye since Joe clouted a 475-foot
home run off the veteran Giant
righthander two years ago.

CHICAGO (P)-- Many baseball
fans would like to see some
changes made, particularly in
regard to car parking and length
of games, a survey authorized by
Commission Ford Frick disclosed
yesterday.
A preliminary report was made
yesterday by a New York public
relations firm to the summer
meeting of the National and Amer-
ican Leagues.
10,000 Reply
Specific findings include:
1. A survey based on replies to
a mail questionnaire sent to 45,000
persons in 13 states covering
major league territory showed
that 49 per cent of these persons
said their interest in baseball had
increased during the past 10 years;
39 per cent said their interest had
remained unchanged; 39 per cent
said they had been to a baseball
game during the past 12 months
from one to five times; 26 per
cent said they had attended more
than five times.
2. Major reasons give by those
who have not attended games
were car parking and other diffi-
culties in getting to the ball
park; preference for watching
games on television; the cost of
attending; and the dislike for the
length.and slow pace of games.
The survey, expected to be in
final form after the World Series,
will contain full statistics on na-
tional public sentiment about
baseball.
^-TALTE

It also will cover the attitudes
of major and minor league owners
and officials, players and um-
pires with particular reference to
their reactions to the opinions of
fans.
The final report also will include
specific recommendations for the
consideration of club owners.
