    f Yankees Face Big Test
In West Against Reds
'Br the Aaaoriatrd PrtMl
The baseball spotlight was focused today on the New York
Yankees and Cincinnati Reds as the first set of lntersectional
clashes in the majors got under way.
Having demonstrated, rather amazingly, their ability to cope
with their associates in the eastern half of the American league,
the surprising Yankees now face
their big test in the west.
Although they received rough
treatment by Boston in their
11-2 defeat Sunday, Casey Sten
gel's men took 10 out of 13
from the east, and seven out of
tight In the stadium.
That showing gave them a
two-game bulge on the rest of
the field. More Important, how
ever, are their two-and-a-half
nd three-and-a-half game leads
over Cleveland and Boston, the
teams generally figured to battle
for the flag.
Whether the Yankees can do
as well on the road as they did
t horn remains to be seen. If
they can return home In first
place after a dozen tilts on for
eign fields, then you can stamp
them as definite pennant threats
The Stenglemen open today in
fft. Louis, where they face the
Browns twice.
'' The big surprise In the Na
tional league has been furnished
by Bucky Walters' Reds. A last
place choice by nearly every ex

for his long-ball clouting as be
fore his recent visit to the big
top with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
He has 11 home runs in the
first 34 games and if he keeps
up that rate of production he is
going to have something like 60
circuit clouts before the season
is over. j
He hit another last night that
didn't do anything for the Pad
res except to extend them into
13 innings before losing to the
San Francisco Seals, 8-6.
The victory allowed the Hol
lywood Stars, who were beaten
by Seattle, 3-2, to remain in first
place. In the other game of the
night Los Angeles edged Sacra
mento, 4-3. Oakland and Port
land were idle, playing a twin
bill today.
Among the scoring in the San
Diego-San Francisco tilts were
home runs by Dino Restelli in
the 8th for the Seals and Dain
Clay's circle smash in the ninth
to deadlock the score. Singles
by Frank Shofner, Leroy Jarvis
and Pitcher Jack Brewer salted
the game away in the 13th.
Big Heinz Becker. Seattle first
baseman, hit one out of the park
in the third with a man on base
to provide the winning margin
over the Stars. Guy Fletcher
went the distance for the Rain
iers for his fifth victory of the
season against two losses.
A home run by First Baseman
Butch Moran in the top of the
ninth broke a tie ball game at
Sacramento and gave the Angels
their victory.

Rome, May 2 J. The re
turn of Japan and Germany to
Olympic competition was made
possible today by the interna

Following a lengthy discus
sion yesterday, the IOC's execu
tive committee recommended
that "the international sports
federations re-admit the nation

it believed that Japan can now
be considered a nation.
The group also decided that
Germany should be accorded
the same privilege once a Ger

Yellowtail Fishing
Fishing. Jike politics, makes
there is the recent expedition
Maple and Leo Harris. Maple is an OSC graduate, charter mem
ber of the "Buck a Month" club and a staunch supporter of
Beaver activities. Harris is none other than the athletic di
rector for the University of Oregon. They became well ac
quainted last summer when they found themselves on the shores
of the same lake in British Columbia. Returning home after
three weeks on the road the
fishing, particularly for yellowtail off the coast of Lower Cali
fornia and Mexico.
Accommodations Good
Traveling by car and trailer the pair went as far south
as Guaymas, Mexico, some 300 miles below Nogales. Tht
highway south of the border Is paved - much of the
way and the hard surfacing will be complete by mid-summer.
People are friendly and accommodations are excellent and
reasonable. An overnight fishing expedition out of San Diego
with $9.25 being the entire cost per individual, including a
berth, resulted in Harris landing three out of four yellow
tail while Maple's record was one for four.
Meet Bus Sporer
It s quite a span from American Legion Junior baseball to the
professional brand of the national pastime but that's the jump
Bus Sporer, Salem Senator pitcher made all in one leap. When
he joined the Solons in 1947
of a number of years spent in
been captured on Wake island in
suspect it now but Sporer's weight dropped to the point where he
was scarcely large enough to
day. His early schooling was
the South Fork of the Umpqua river. He attended a number of
high schools, including Roseburg and Lincoln of Portland be
fore joining a construction crew
Had Baseball Ideas
Prior to drparture for the Pacific, Sporer says he had
"ideas" concerning a profetaional baseball career but didn't
have an opportunity to commit himself until he finished a
tour of prison ramps. Including Luzon, Fusan, Korea, Shang
hai, Peking and Japan. Pestered by wildness during his first
two seasons, the big right hander had virtually decided to
hang up his glove at the close of last year. But he changed
his mind this spring, a change that pleased Business Man
ager George Emigh. During the off season Sporer kept
In condition by reason of his employment with the sawmill
division of the Oregon Pulp and Paper company. His work
there was pleasant and he speaks highly of the concern. The
feeling apparently was mutual for the company wants him
to return. The Sporers have a year-old son, Dennis Ray.
Impact of Television
Broadcasting and televising activities continue to create prob
lems for public schools and the question came in for considerable
discussion during a sectional conference of the National basket
ball committee held in Seattle. The conclusion was reached that
it will be desirable to experiment during the next year or two
with controlled television with the understanding that the right
to televise is granted on condition that the right will be limited
or rescinded if tournament admissions are reduced to the point
where they do not draw capacity crowds. It was pointed out that
broadcasting and televising have different factors than those
found In reports by newspapers. "The newspapers contain ac
counts of preliminary activities many weeks in advance of the
tournament," the conferees pointed out. "Because of this, they
tend to increase attendance. In the case of broadcasting or tele
vision, the account of the game Is simultaneous with the activity,
and there is much less benefit as far as attendance is concerned.''
It was generally agreed that there should be some fee for broad
casting or televising."
