Flaw Pointed Out So...
Marty Marion Slams
First Card Victory
- By JACK HAND
Associated Press Sports Writer
Stan MusiaTs batting lessons to Marty Marion have paid off with
the first St. Louis Cardinals victory of the season.
. Coming-up in the eighth inning of yesterday s only big league game,
with the world champs sporting a slender 2-1 advantage over Cincin
nati, Marion poled a two-run homer that assured George (Red) Munger
of his f test win. .
There have been years when Marion failed to hit a single homer
. In an entire campaign and he has hit only 17 out of the park in seven
years. Last year his average slumped way off to 533 and there were
stories that Mr. Shortstop was on the downgrade.
One day while Marion was taking batting practice In Florida. Musial.
the IMS batting kine and most :
valuable player in the National
league, .caught a flaw in his stance.
"I think you would get a little
more power if you didn't take such
a wide stance" Musial advised his
teammate. , "I don't want you to
think I'm butting in but it's a
little trick that has helped me."
-. Mr. Shortstop took the advice to
heart, changed his stance' and start
ed .hitting with more authority.
Now he's aiming for the fences. .
It has been a long time since
Marion went 4 for 4 like he did
yesterday off Cincinnati's rookie
Sitcher, Ed Erautt, when he
unched three ' singles with his
clinching homer.
Erautt appeared on his way to
a shutout in his first major
league start with a 1-0 lead on
Eddie Miller's fifth inning home
ran. One was out when the Pa
cific Coast league strikeout king
ran into trouble.
Musial tied the score with his
first hit of the year, a homer into
the right field bleachers. Enos
Slaughter's double followed by
Whitey Kurowski's single broke the
tie. ' After Dick Sisler forced Ku
rowski. Marion came through with
his clout to provide the clincher,
4-1. ' That blow flattened Erautt
and Clyde Shoun came on to left
hand the Cards into submission the
rest of the way.
George Munger allowed eight
eincy hits but scattered them to'
earn the first decision of what Man
ager Eddie Dyer predicts will be a
30-win season.
All other games in both major
leagues were postponed because of
bad weather.
Ferris Fain Brings Joy
To Old Man Mack's Heart
' NEW YORK. April 17 P That
perennially optimistic old gentleman,
Connie Mack, declared today that
his Philadelphia Athletics had bet
ter watch out, or a certain rookie
named Ferris Fain will make them
Mil look bad.
The 84-year-old owner-manager
of the Athletics was still expressing
pleasure over the way his cellar-
Sredicted club bowled over the New
ork Yankees on opening day, but
' it was no easy matter to determine
whether he was happier about that
victory or about First Baseman Fain.
"Why, he goes clean over to sec
ond base to field a ball," said the
man who groomed such star first
lackers as Jimmy Foxx and home
run Baker, "and if the pitcher isn't
last running over to cover the bag
look out I"
! "'And on bunts yl". Mack de
clared. !'One day he charged in to
the third base line to pick one up.
He might not always get it, but no
One can accuse him of being afraid
of the ball."
Fain, a 25-year-old former army
(staff sergeant, made his major lea
gue debut against the Yanks Tues
day and on his initial time at bat

he pulled the ball high and far into
right but it dropped into a fielder's
glove just before reaching the fence.
In subsequent trips to the plate.
Fain walked, struck out, bunted
safely and grounded out not an in

Fain has the makings of a great
hitter.

Joe Seeks
One Fight.
For June
NEW YORK. April 17 Joe
Louis Li tired of waiting and the
Twentieth Century Sporting club is
tired of looking for "logical" con
tenders, so the field narrowed to
day to two heavyweights previously
brushed off in the search for a
challenger.
Joe Baksl's refusal to sign after
his Impressive seventh-round knock
out of Bruce Woodcock In London
Tuesday night left only Jersey Joe
Wnlcott and Mello Bettlna as pos
sible Louis opponents tor a June
title match.
In I.os Angeles. Louis' co-manager.
Marshall Miles, said he plan
ned to talk with Strauss by tele
phone this afternoon (at 3 p. m.
KSTI and if possible settle the
matter. Asked If Louis preferred
either Walcolt or Kettina. Milea .
replied: "He doesn't favor either
one. He just wants to fight."
However. Louis said last night he
didn't think the New York suae
athletic commission would sanction
a title bout with -either Walcott or
Bettina. "I don't think either of
them would draw a good gate with
me this summer in New York or
elsewhere," he told newsmen at Los
Angeles.
Previously, the champion said he
was prepared to announce his re
tirement unless a title defense was
arranged this summer. Last night
he elaborated: "I have no plans for
retirement if outstanding opponents
are found for me. In that case I
would be willing to fight three or
four times a year."

ALTURAS. April 17 With over
100 Northern California sportsmen

members are pledged to respect the
rights and cooperate with landown
ers, to ask hunting permission, to
close all gates and not to do. any
shooting where livestock are graz

Warning Given
PORTLAND. April 17 P The
state board of health advised fisher
men today to be vaccinated against
Rocky Mountain spotted fever if
they plan to fish in the area east
of the Deschutes river.
Sixty-three cases of the fever
ten of them fatal Isjve been re
corded in Oregon in the last six
years. It is caused by bites of the
wood tick, prevalent in some wooded
Oregon regions.
The board's weekly disease survey
showed 85 influenza cases, a decline
of 51 per cent. Many more mild
cases, however, physicians said, were
occurring. Pneumonia increased
slightly to 28 cases. Scarlet fever
broke out widely in Coos county
with 34 cases, and 13 cases elsewhere
in Oregon.

Frisco, 1-0
By The Associated Press
It was left-handed day In the
Pacific northwest yesterday and
Portland's southpaw Roy Hclser
side-slanted the Beavers to a 1-0
I win over the San Francisco Seals
: while Seattle's wronghander, Char-
ley Ripple, fell 3-1 victim to the
iportslde tosslngs of Los Angeles'
and Belllngham's Cliff Chambers.
The Portland triumph dropped
the Seals out of the first place posi
tion they held for a day. and boost
ed the slugging San Diego Padres
back Into the top spot. San Diego
drubbed Hollywood 10-4.
The cellar-dwelling Oakland Oaks
.stiffened up behind the seven-hit
'pitching of Charley Gassaway to
i squelch the upper division Sacra
mento Soions 3-1 and square tneir
series at a game each.
The Beaver-Seal encounter was a
hurling duel between Hclser and
San Francisco's Bob Chesnes. with
the latter giving up hits. The
game's lone tally came In the sev
enth after two were walked, and
Danny Escobar lined out a hit to
score Joe Dobbins.
Ripple and Chambers were freer
with the base knocks in the Seattle
Los Angeles go but tight pitching
in the clinches left the runners
stranded. The Angels had 13 run
ners high and dry. and Seattle nine.
