amounted to nothing more than

when the Cleveland outfit was
paid oft on 4000 paid admis

were purchased, and when Gray
dropped aronnd tor his, he was
handed a 1933 model that had
been dry cleaned.
"Don't I rate a new uni

The quartermaster explained
the shortage.
Gray, who barely was hang

to Hojnsby, and when the new
duds . were not forthcoming,
grunted: "Huh! A big league
ball club In the minors!"
"You shouldn't complain,"

right-hander who remains a
violent holdout.

for the past half dosen years,

$5000, with a sliding scale
whereby he could collect $11,

Ferrell should be one of . the
Idols of the sport, but he has

Is right and his teammates
wrong. If -a -curve ball is
smacked,- the. catcher should
have prescribed a fast one.
Ferrell has' walked from the
box a half dozen times with no
one warmed up On other occa
sions he has declined to leave
the premises when paged. The
young man was fined SU0O
and suspended for 10 day in
Boston last summer when he
refused to bow out when order

.Because he. was a splendid
hitter aa well as a pitcher, Fer

190 pounds, had an Idea he
was another Baba Ruth.
But last August, when he de

more perplexing problem than
being up there every fourth or

Cards Rising
Title Threat
in National
By Hugh S. Fullerton, Jr.
(Associated Press Writer)
The St Louis Cardinals, riding
the crest of a hitting wave that
has supplanted their supposedly
Invincible pitching, now are Jus
tifying the predictions made tor
them before the National League
season started.
After losing seven of their first
nine games, the Cards began hit
tine snd an 8 to 7 triumph over
the mimes rnursaay maae it
five In a row and gave them a
.500 average for the first time
since the second day of the cam
paign. In the course ot this streak
they have collected (0 hits and
34 runs to make victories pos
sible although only one pitcher
has gone the route. Yesterdays
contribution was eleven blows off
Phil Collins of which Joe Med-
wick collected two singles and
his fourth home ran.
Despite their comeback, the
Cardinals still are out ot the
first division. The Boston Braves
the only team they had a chance
to oust from the top tour yes
terday, came through - with a
smashing 6-0 victory over Chi
cago's Cubs snd went into a tie
with the undefeated Pittsburgh
elub a half game ahead ot the
Ed (Dutch) Brandt added to
the southpaw plague that has
bothered the Cubs recently by
holding the Chicago sluggers to
two puny singles to shut tbem
out for the first time.
The New York Giants Improved
their position at the top ot the
standing by defeating the Pirates
6-$ as Travis Jackson accounted
for four runs with a triple with
loaded sacks and a homer, Brook
lyn and Cincinnati battled
through seven scoreless Innings
before the Dodgers got to Ray
Kelp for three runs, enough to
win t-4, in toe eigntn.
