    Lippy Leo's Banishment Hands
Rickey Three Tough Problems;
Discharge Of Durocher Hinted
1 SSCPCDUi'tto
Pete And George To Try Again
: By JOE REICHLER
BROOKLYN, April 10 (PH-Now that some
t the shock of Leo Durocher's banishment from
bascbRll for the 1847 season by Commissioner
A. B. (Happy) Chandler has worn off. President
Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers was
faced today with the task of solving swiftly
three enormous problems.
. First, Rickey must name a manager to suc
ceed the exiled Durocher for the impending
teason which gets under way just five days
from now.
Second, the Dodgers' Mahatma must make
up his mind whether to retain or discharge Leo
when the suspension Is lifted at the end of the
playing season, September 28.
Third, Rickey has only five more days to
make good on his winter statement that "a de
cision on Jackie Robinson will be made on or
before the opening day of the National league
season."
. The first problem is probably the least dif
ficult for the solemn-faced Brooklyn head to
solve. Although Rickey said he was not yet
ready to name a pilot to succeed Durocher. it
was generally believed the assignment would
do to cither Coach Ray Blades or Scout John
(Pepper) Martin, the one-time wild horse of the
Osrrc who starred for the St. Louis Cardinals'
gas-house gang a dozen years ago. Both previ
ously had worked under Rickey as managers,
Blades at St. Louis and Martin at Sacramento,
a Cardinal farm,
Dixie Walker, often mentioned in connec
tion with the Brooklyn managerial post, was
ruled out by Rickey. "Walker never has been
considered in a managerial capacity." he said.
Although Durocher did not say, there was
strong belief that the subdued firebrand of the
diamond would shift into radio and the movies.
The 41-year-old partly-bald Leo has had quite a
bit of experience on the radio, having recently
completed a 20-week 15-minutc program on the
network. He also has guest-starred on numerous
occasions.
The news of his exile, which was telephoned
to Rickey by Chandler from the commissioner's
office in Cincinnati, broke up an important
meeting of the Brooklyn board of strategy
which had been called by Rickey to decide the
fate of Robinson, the star negro Infielder with
Montreal.

Extra Innings Rule
In Coast Ball Play

Extra inning games were the '
rule in yesterday's Pacific Coast I
league baseball competition but i
Portland and San Diego topped
them all in the southern city.
The Padres and the Beavers
from Oregon fought it out for 15
innings, giving up in a 4 to 4
tie only because of the league's
curfew law. San Diego scored in
the fiist. Portland tied it in the
second inning, but the Padres
went ahead. 2 to 1, in their half,
with Portland tieing it again in
the third.
The Beavers, on Bill Padulo
vich's triple. Danny Escobar's
single, a single, a walk and
Duane Crawford's single, took a
2-run lead for the moment in
the fifth but in their half San
Diego came through with two
more runs when Jim McDonnell
walked, moved to third on a
fielder's choice and a wild pitch
and scored on Dnin Clay's sin
gle, after which Clav stole sec
ond and scored on Johnny Bar
rett's single.
That made it 4 to 4 and there

battle which left S;n Diceo

H. Truman Limbering Up Pitching Arm
For Opening Toss In Majors April 14;
No "Bean Bag Stuff" From This Prexy
By ARTHUR EDSON
WASHINGTON, April 10 JP)
The first ball thrown this base,
ball season probably will be the
best presidential pitch since the
days of William Howard Taft.
The pitcher, of course, will be
H. Truman, a well known left
hander. There has been no official
announcement. But Mr. Truman
has promised that barring-complications
he will drop around
April 14 for the opening game
between the Washington Sena
tors and the New York Yankees.
Since the president looked
very good last year in his first
try in the majors, he doubtless
will look even better this April.
And that will be very good
indeed.
The authority for this is Mor
ris A. Bealle, the town's No. 1
fan and author of the just-published
"The Washington Sena
tors." In his book Bealle says it was
Taft who started this presiden
tial habit of throwing of the first
ball. Taft threw a high, hard one.
But look at those who fol
lowed him: Wilson, Harding,
Coolidge, Hoover. Roosevelt.
Grumbles Bealle:
"They all used the bean bag
stance of a bloomer girl debu
tante." But Truman, how refreshing
ly different. "No bean bag stuff,"
says Bealle admiringly. "His follow-through
was perfect."
Oddly, that first presidential
toss, by Taft in 1910, started one
of the finest opening games in
baseball history.
The late Walter Johnson was
on the mound for the Senators,
and he turned back the Phila
delphia Athletics, 3-0.
There was at least one un
usual play. Frank Baker, the
home run king, connected with
one of Johnson's pitches for
what looked like an easy fly to
right field.
But the crowd was large, and
just outside the ropes sat a typi
cally stubborn Washington char
actcr. The outfielder went back for
the fly. The character didn't
budge.
The outfielder tripped over
the character's feet. The ball
flopped down safely a few feet
away.
It was the only hit off the
great Walter Johnson that day.
Bluejackets
Cougars Stui
Even At 1-1
LEWISTON. Ida.. April 10 Wl
Bremerton's Bluejackets and the
Washington State Counanj stood
even at a game each today, the
professional nine eking out an
8-7 win yesterday despite loose
fielding by a rookie infield.
Bremerton massed all its tal
lies in the first four innings with
Joe Sullivan shutting out the
collegians during his five-inning
tour. His successor, Wally Preis
er, was the victim of a six-run
uprising in the seventh when
two infield errors allowed five
unearned runs.
three runs in the tenth. Pitcher
Larry Powell was the victim of
the Hollywood uprising. The
stars lellficldvr, Aiuty bkurskl.
and moundsman Clint Hufford
hit and pitched Hollywood to
the victory.
There was another 10-iuning
contest in Los Angeles in which
Oakland finally squeezed past
the Angels. 4 to 3. Les Scar
sella's single and Bill Hart's dou
ble produced the Onk-j' winning
run after they had tied it up in
the ninth when Pinch Hitter
Glenn Crawford singled, went to
third on in ii'UI outs and scored
on Brooks Holder's single.
Oiikland .had played and lost
four extra innings games earlier
this season.
In the only regulation-length
game Sacramento rushed away
with a ti-run first inning blast
to take the measure of Seattle
7 to 4. Hugh Orphan, pitching
his way Willi that top-heavy lead,
outlasted three Seattle pitchers
for the victory, although the
Rainicrs outhit Sacramento, 11
to 10.
What happened in the first
was this: Mike Schemer walked,
Steve Mesner singled, Joe Marty
doubled. Tommy Nelson dou
bled, Ed Fitzgerald w hit by
the pitcher. Alex Kampouris
walked. Orphan singled and Bill
Ramsey and Schemer walked.
A triple by Lou Novikoff,
along with singles by Fdo Vanni,
Johnny Sturm and Hillis Laync
gave Seattle three runs in the
third after two were out.
