The recent coines-on In the local baseball bastille have lis mixed
up Just as much as the next gay who, like us, hasn't beenj able to
decipher some and for one thing certain would have held onto Dick
Sinovic with bear trap, glue, lariat or anything else with restraining
powers. Dick and Shortstop Bud Peterson are two lads we j figured,;
along with the multitude, as being the best pieces of chattel the parent
Portlands had in their lesser holdings. .We never have been1 able to
fathom the reason why talented youns Bud is playing in thfc league
In the first place. The outrlgnt
tale of Sinovic to Vancouver a
the standings, has us flabbergasted
to say the least. , We suppose we
ren't to second guess the deals
made by the Portlands, and haven't
been doing it at times even when
we had the urge. But hanged if
we can see' anything good about
telling a player to an enemy Class
B outfit in June when the same
players w;-s in May Rood enough to
be sold to a major league organ
ization. True, SirKivic was a very dis
heartened guy when he came off
his recson;.ble facsimile to one
of Cook's deluxe grade tours. His
dobber was down because he had
been shoved around so much, and
he told us he asked to be returned
In m in finish nut the ceason.
H uintri no mnr traveling, iust
ball. But there was the feeling here that the hero of lastij season's
club wasn't wanted. It was proved when Dick was allowed to sit around
three niants on the bench. Then when he was finally put) into the
linetfp, he got to play exactly one game before the bosses soured on
him and shipped him out. i!
We've been told, by Sinovic himself, that he was called a
troublemaker by the Beaver organisation boses. To which Jack
Wil'on. wht has known Dick far many years and who had him
la his two seasons oa , Salem club, will answer, with an urge to
punch on the nose anyone who so erroneously accuses Sinovic.
We've known Dirk a few years also, and Insist he's one of the best
team mi we've ever known on a ball rlab. .
Orer 40 of 61 League Regular Past .300 Mark:
What with well over 40 of the WIL's 64 regular playejfs hitting
over the .300 mark (have you seen the latest averages?), wp're con
vinced thnt a bat wielder of Sinovic' caliber will after he lijas a few
diiys of filing his travelogues be one of the circuit's .400 menjj We felt
good all over when he heard that he was back with the Salemi as there
lwas is room on a club for a guy who can hit, i field and jjrun. He
proved l:i't reason he adds valuable color to the team. i
One of the bk reasons why Sinovic was sold, the club man
aremrnt tells us. lies In the fact that he didn't look like the same
ruv of a year aeo. The opinion was that Dick: doesn't have the
old iip ct 1948 and that he ean't run or throw as food as he did
1at vrar. Mehbe so. but that's a pretty sizeable load to ban on
a ruv you've looked at only a couple of days. We re a feared now
that Dirk will do his exploding while In a Vancouver uniform, and
that his enemies which now Include our townlea will know only
too well that he's back in the league. j!
So long as we're goin? to blow a fuse over the. whole' thing, might
as well blow it good. No one will ever tell us and make UX believe
that Sinovic, if he had to go, couldn't have been swapped tojj someone,
someplace for a w inning Class B pitcher. And lordy knows! the Sen
ators rould use at least one of those rare birds of this 199 season.
We don't know what they got for Dick (we do know it wasn't much.
as the deal was made with Vancouver Boss Bob Brownoutjiwnaiever
It was won't Offset the dollars and cents value; a winning pitcher
would h.ive been worth.
Good Track Mon, bttt What
From the appearances of all the historic facts on new Wil
lamette U mentor Chester Stackhouse. the gent must be quite a
track roach. Not much U said, we note, about his ability as a
true! fown boss. An "Athletic Journal" Item of 1942, listed among
Stark here's press notices says. "No college coach Is better qual
ified to-write on track than Chester Stackhouse." J
Well and good, for it will take some sort of cinder-minded
Houdiri to make something of the sadly sagged oval sport at WU. And
t the .;me time we hope the new man, certainly an unexpected sur-
pris us such, knows his football to the extent that he cart! keep the
Bearcats along top row in the smaller college field in these parts.
the introduction of Stackhouse also brought to light a final word
on the school's new football stadium in the Bush, pasture. ijMany be
lieved that the stadium would be inaugurated the coming fall. But
contrary to this it will be. the autumn of 1950. Hence another full
season on bruised, battered and smelly old Sweetland field
Sullivan. Lee Bose in Weight Squabble
All that LaMotta-Cerdan weight bickering of Uct wetek must
be catching. Now'the Interests that guide the ring destinies of John
L. Sullivan and King Henry Lee. who make with their 10-rounder
here Wednesday nieht. are tossing verbal lefts and rights, plua a
few pieces of legal tender all over the place. Sullivan as IS known..
ordinarily lirhtheavy who fights at over : 170 pounds. The
virion-, looking Mr. Lee Is a middleweight and will have abaorb
a steak or two real quick-like Wednesday to reach the 16-5 pound
le l. f
So James Carroll,- manager of the Seattle dusky, demanded that
he have in writing the promise that Sullivan would weigh no more
t cn lfia for the fight. If he's a single ounce over that one hour after
weiRhin"-in time (thev'll give John L. an extra hour if he's heavy),
down Rc-e the weight forieit money into, Carroll s pocket. Sullivan's
boss P:ul Smalley didn't want to go it that route, but had to. There
would " been no fight otherwise.
.Inst how a mid-snmmer Salkeld production will do at the
gate a question. But at least the tight itself looms as one that
car-ir-. interest enough for the ticket-buyers. Lee looked like
quite i Piece of fistic machinery during his brief visit a few
months backnhen he flattened Bobby Volk In the first round.

Experience May
Aid Jersey Joe
by Jack Hand
CHICAGO, June! 20-(-The age 1
old story of youth vs experience
sums us Wednesday night's Co
miskey park scrap between Ez
ra rd Charles of Cincinnati and Jer
sey Joe Walcott bf Camden, N. J
for the NBA version of the world
heavyweight championship.
Can 27-year-old Charles, giv
ing away some 15 pounds, catch
the wily will o' the wisp who made
Joe Louis miss for 25 rounds?
After a year's layoff, will the
legs of 35-year-old Jersey Joe be
able to stand another long pursuit
Will Walcott maneuver Charles
into ooenincs for the sneak rights
that floored Louis three times? .
If he is dropped early, will youth
help Charles get off the floor to
win in the late rounds?
These are just a few of the
questions puzzling, the oddmakers
who made Charles an early 5 to 7
favorite. There are indications it
might come down to 6 to 5 pick
'em by ring time.
During Walcott's long training
grind that ended yesterday, there
was no indication that he suffered
from the year "vacation."
Trtiiner Dan Florio, who handled
Jersey Joe in both Louis fights
and many others, thinks he is as
sharp as the night in December of
1947 when he almost dethroned the
Brown Bomber.
Charles' strategy, of course, is
top secret, but it would not sur
prise his supporters to see him stay
away from walcott for a few
rounds, trying to force the master
of the jigging retreat into a lead.
They do not think Walcott can
carry a sustained offensive and
they want him to try early, paving
the way for Ezay to wear him
down in the late rounds. s
Jack Kearns. whose Joey Maxim
fought both men, says Maxim likes
Walcotf-to win. So does two-ton
Tony Galento, who is in town on
a wrestling tour.
On the other hand. Gene Jones,
a promising young heavy who
sparred with Walcott before the
Louis fight and worked with Char
les here, selects Charles. He savs
Ezzy hits harder.
The consensus is that it will be
a long fight, possibly the 15-round
