GOES HITIESS ON NKIHDAY CHICAGO, m. Gene Baker, the Chicago Cubs’ Negro second baseman, celebrated his 30th birthday June 15th. Cubs passed out the congrats but the Giant pitchers didn’t allow him a hit and thereby ended his six-game hitting streak. HANK THOMPSON STILL AILING QUIETLY ~ MILWAUKEE, Wise. Though he’s still complain ing of chest pains. Hank Thompson is very much in the Giant lineup. Recently he was a patient of Medical Center where he was sent to check up on these on-off pains. Doctors there could see nothing serious Hank continues to play but misses batting driUa. POPE AN ORIOLE NOW BALTIMORE, Md. The trade deadline cau^t Dave Pope out as an Indian but in as a Baltimore Oriole. The husky Negro outfielder was not indispensable to the Indians who let him go with veteran Wally Westlake In exchange for Billy Cox, infielder and Gene Woodllng plus some cash. Pope has been used only part time with the Indians but boasts of a batting average of .297. JAMES' "CHIP" SLIGH, NCC CAGE STAR, MAKES GOOD IN CLASS, NOW ELIGIBLE ■ Last summer this time the saddest word from Coach Floyd H. Broiun of the championship North Carolina College basket ball team was that his star guard, ] James "Chip" Sligh, hadn’t made the grad* scholas tically. More, Sligh returned to NCC after a quarter’s absence. He played the books as hard as he played the ball and at quar ter’s end, he came up winner with a splendid average. “Chip” Sligh today is a far wiser young man than he was two years ago. And if enrolling in the current summer session to make-up lost time is proof of wisdom, "Chip” is continuing to pil0 up points in his knowledge argan.' NCC opponents on the hardwood in 1956 may as well start now building their plans to check Chip, for he'll be in there pitching. A graduate of Adkin High School in his na tive Winston-Salem, ' N. C., Sligh is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James V. Sligh of 1818 Ken tucky Ave. He played on the NCC Eagles 1953 championship team, sparking their offense on many crucial occasions. He will be twenty-years old in July. Elston Howard Not Available For Sale, Trade * - NEW YORK The trade deadline came and went for the Yankees and any reference to trading the star Elston Howard for a much needed pitcher may have been considered but certainly nixed by the front office. For How=^ NEW METHOD UUNDRY And Dry Cleanerg Quality - Service 405 Roxboro St. DIAL 6959 ard, the Yanks’ first Negro-- is continuiTig to shine as a Yankee. Mgr. Casey Stengel calls him a “four-way guy*’—a cateher, right fielder, left fielder and a solid gold pinck hitter. He’s terrific under pressure. Just this week with the Yanks be hind until the 9th inning, How ard came up with the game winning run against the Detroit Tigers. This -marked the third time already, Elston has delivered the game winning blow. His triple in ninth beat the Tigers 7-6 on May 14th and his single in the ninth fixed the Orioles on May 29th 1-0.

(in no double talk) "Howard has been doing all right for us.. I’m glad I’ve got him and not somebody else. You can bet on that.” SI. LOUIS PKESS cenicizES NEWCONBE SAINT LOUIS St. Louis’ newspapers had a field day criticizing Big Don Newcombe's mannerism of go ing to the resin bag between eveiTf pitch. They tried to label him a showoff for the manner ism which has delighted the fans who root for the big fel low each time at bat. Newcombe will tell you it’s no mannerism—this calling for the I'esin bag so much, for his reason is to keep him out of court. Six years ago, in a game against Philly at Ebbets Field, the bat slipped out of Newk’s hand and hit a specte- tor. The woman claimed in jury to her arm and sued for REVERSIBLE DIb WINDOW SALE! FANS $3,500. The case has Just been settled out of court for $250. Sa^^f Newk: “My hands i>er- spire more than most guy*! I have to go to the bag a lot; sometimes two and three times a piteh.” When asked why others did not do it, he said; “Other guys use pine-tar on their bat hand les. But I can’t use it because it makes my hands too sticky and I wouldn’t be able to piteh.” Thus the mannerism will stand. And it plus Newcombe’s .405 hitting and hit (11-1) make him cam of biggest drawing canto in ball.
