Almost unnoticed in this big bang session at STC was the inability
of such mighties of the shotgun as Arnold Reigger and Earl Colson, jr.,
to walk away with most of the prize loot. They amount to a pair of the
best in any clay pigeon carnival in the West, but in the recent conclave

two-week home stay. - 1
McCrady Was Handy with His Fists Also
As W. II. McCrady, the slender and mustachioed Portlander
was downing one target after another at STC in the big meet all
around title over the weekend some of the oldtimers were heard
discussing the fellow's athletic achievements of some 15 years ago. L
Not with a shotgun, but with boxing gloves. It seems McCrady is
the same gent who at that time was a fighter, and a pretty good
-one. They were telling us he is the one who beat the hallalujah
out of the once-famed Ah Wing Lee. giving the Chinese battler
such a pasting In the process that he never fought again. McCrady
can still belt 'em, but now with his shootin' iron . ;
Not heralded nearly as much as his departure, Sammy Baker Is
back at Oregon State and is registered in summer school. The great
prep athlete of Corvallis high year before last isn't eligible for next
fall's football team, because of his flunk -out, but he is back and trying
to make up the lost ground at least . . . Spokane writer Danny May,
here with the Indians during Jheir stay insisted Red-headed Jack Parks
doesn't belong to Seattle at all, and that he's the outright property of
Spokane. Seattle traded, the Indians Parks for Bud Sheely, and
tossed in Pitcher Ken Kimball also. -AVe aren't arguing with May
on it, but still believe the Seattles in some way have a string on
Parks. If they haven't they'll one day be aS sorry for messing up on as they are for losing Hal Saltzman. The 21year-old redhead Is
the best prospect we've seen in the WIL in many; a year, and he has
the major league-scouts following him all oVer the circuit ...
Hold the Fort, Men, That Man's Coming In
Speaking of home run hitting above, batten down the hatches
and man the barricades, men, for that man' coming' again. Mean

tonight Consequently, watch the crowds perk? up for the three
game series as Greco's rampaging against Salem pitching staffs
In recent seasons has helped local attendance (when he's here)
considerably. They like to see

Chance to Move Up
Confronts Locals
The Salem Senators, reluctantly
riding in fifth place three games
behind the fourth place Wenat
chees, open their second straight
week of home play tonight at
Waters field against the last-place
Tacoma Tigers Game time is
eight o'clock, and on the Salem
mound will be Stu Federicks, the
large and blond sidearmer who
has been a much better flinger for
the locals than his 2-won, 6-lost
record would indicate.
Losers of the last series here
with Spokane, three games to two,
and mostly because of" home run
production by Jack Parks and
Larry Barton of the Indians, the
Salems will again be confronted
with two or three of the enemy
who could make it rough with
four-play belts. They are Dick
Greco, Manager Bob Johnson and
Eddie Barr, all of them well ac
quainted with the easy way
around the base paths.
The Tacoma pitching being what
it is, however, the Salems stand
a good chance of moving up in
the three-ga -; series. .Bremerton
comes in to finish up the week,
starting Friday. ,
Salem faces a "must win week
actually. The onrushing Bremer
tons are now but one game back
of the locals, and Victoria is prac
tically tied with Bremerton (dis
counting Monday wins and losses).
The Senators are but six games

the Tigers too. Mel Wasley has
hit four over the right field bar

his seasons total to 13. The solidly
erected littje outfielding populaire
seems to have regained all his hit
ting strength since being out of
the lineup with that bad leg, and
should not be long In elevating
himself into the ".300" class 8gain.
In games played with Tacoma
thus far Salem has won five, lost
six. With other enemy clubs the
up-to-date win-loss count is 7
won, 6-lost with Victoria; 6-won,
9-lost with Yakima; 5-won, 8-lost
with Vancouver; 7-won, 11-lost
with Spokane; 7-won, 6-lost with
Wenatchee and 5-won, 5-lost with

ment on the Solons, Beltin Bob

Wasley has 65, Bud Peterson 49

13 home runs lead. Bud Peterson
has eight. Cherry seven and Way

11 triples lead. Cherry is next
with six. In doubles, Cherry has
21 Bud Peterson 18 and Marty
Knig 13 . . . The club has n
even 100 double plays. So far, the
Townies art a better road than
home club. In the Waters arena
Salem has won 20, lost 25. On the
road the count is 22-26.

Raise Earned
in the National league and top
candidate for the most valuable
player award, used an appear
ance before a congressional com
mittee in Washington to break
the news. Called before the house
un-American activities commit
tee to refute a statement by Sin
ger Paul Robeson that negroes
in the United States would not
fight in a war against Russia,
Robinson told the members, a
meng other things:
"It Isn't very pleasant for me
to find myself in the middle of a
public argument that has nothing
to do with the standing of the
Brooklyn Dodgers In the pennant
race or even the pay raise I
am going to ask Mr. Branch
Rickey for next year."
Jackie dropped It in just like
that, neatly and quietly by 'the
back door. But he was under
oath because the' committee
swears in all witnesses.
"Robinson, who honied back
here for tonight's game with
Chicago, didn't say how much
of a raise he wanted. It is not
the policy of baseball clubs to
discuss such matters in open for
um, and Rickey declined com
ment when told about it Best
guese on Robinson's current sa
lary is about flS.eoe.
There doesn't seem to be much
argument about Jackie earning
his keep. The latest average

Jackie Says Robeson All Wrong
WASHINGTON. July 18 Jackie Robinson, the Brooklyn Dodgers,
sparkling second baseman, tells the House Un-Amcricsn activities
committee today that if singer Paul Robeson "wants to sound silly"
in public, "that's his business." Robinson said negro Americans
would fight for this country "against Russia or any other enemy.

Fatal Crash Terminates Vince
Foster's Brief, Stormy Career
PIPESTONE, Minni, July 18-TVThe stormy career of Vincent
Lee Foster, 22 Omaha welterweight boxer ended in death today. His
car plowed into the reaf of a cattle truck.
An 18-year-old girl, Ruth Newcome of Flandreau, S. D., sitting
beside Foster, also died. Three j :
other persons in the car were , the Moody Bible institute in Chic-
injured, two critically. The group
was returning from a dance when
the accident occurred.
Foster's fists carried him into
ring limelight. Out of the ring
his activities bore sharp contrast.
Once he faced a rape charge in
St. Joseph, Mo. Later he was
known as a student of the Bible.
Foster became an overnight ring
sensation by knocking out favored
Tony Pellone of New York, last
Jan. 14 in the Nebraskan's first ap
pearance in Madison square gar
den. Foster credited the victory
to "the work of the Lord." He
said "I thank him and my man
ager." About " three weeks after
the Pellone bout Foster was
charged in St. Joseph with rape
by a Kansas City woman. The
case was dropped for lack of evid
ence, however.
Foster told his manager Jack
Hurley of Chicago and others that
he was reformed last summer at
. Jit --
Tough Tony Ross tangles with
Tex Hagcr.
The tag team mainer came
about as a result, of last week's
, doings during a prelim tiff be
tween McEuin and the Yaqui
Kid. Inasmuch as Yaqui Joe Is
officially the Kid's tutor and
second in all his bouts, guiding
him from a corner much of the
time, W illiams took it upon him
self to help McEuin out via the
same method. Williams was to
later appear in the main event.
Not content with this. Williams
at one time climbed into the ring
and caused a young riot by try
ing to help out physically. When
he took a swing at the Kid, Old
timer Joe figured it was time to
come out of retirement. A top
notcber hereabouts some 20
years ago. Joe is now 42. He says
he's no older than Williams and
that he can still teach the tat
tooed toughie a few tricks the
hard way. At any rate, Sugi Ilya

the referee by special assignment
by Owen.
j ago.
"Before that I was a lost man,"
said Foster. "I was young but I
was lost. It was yielding to tem
ptations common to man."
The Foster fistic bubble burst
last May 13, when he met Charley
Fusari of Irvington, N. J., in Mad
ison square garden. Fusari knock
ed him out in the first round.
Foster went on an "indefinite
vacation." Hurley said Foster "be
lieves the Lord may not want him
to fight any more." Foster em
phasized, however, he had not re
tired from the ring.

Papers, Wools
Cop Decisions
The Papermakers took over sole
possession of the topi spot in the
City Softball league standings last
night at Leslie as they thumped
the KC's. 9-0. behind the one-hit
chucking of Bob Knight. In an
other city contest the Campbell
Rock Wools topped 12th Street
Market, 5-1. Industrial action saw
the leading Clear Lake club
trounce Interstate Tractor. 14-4,
with the aid of four home runs.
Last night's games were the last
regularly scheduled games for the
City leaguers until July 25th when
the third round starts. However
the Marine Reserves and Mootrys
will clash in a make-up game to
night at 8 o'clock. Postoffice meets
Naval Reserve at 6:30 in an Indus
trial fray.
Knight faced only 16 men in the
Papermakers five-inning win over
the KC's. The Makers sewed up
the tilt in the first frame with six
runs via five hits. George Roth
gave the 12th Streets five hits as
the Wools triumphed. Five tallies
in the fourth gave the Campbells
their margin.
