Dream teams of the eastern
and western sections of the
Longhorn League will clash to-
night at San Angelo in the an-
nual All-Star game.
The East team will be compos-
ed of three of the league's sec-
ond division dubs — Sweet-
water, San Angelo and Ballin-
ger—with Vernon the only
"Yankee’' team in the top four.
It all boils down to one thing:
The West should moider the
With elean-up hitters galore
and the top pitchers in the lea-
gue on their side, the West
should run away with their
fourth All Star classic.
* *, »
LOOKING OVER last night’s
Longhorn results, we find to
our amazement that three of
the West's All-Star pitchers saw
duty, despite the fad that they
well knew they were to play
with the All-Stars tonight.
Of course, it's the managers'
fault and not the pitchers.
Ray Knoblauch of Odessa,
who must pitch for the West All
Stars tonight, went the full
nine innings last night to beat
Vernon, 2-0. Ray Drake of Ros-
well was kocked out of the box
in the second inning by Sweet-
water. Bert Garcia of Big Spring
started the second game of a
double-header against Ballinger,
but lost the contest 5 to 3.
Meanwhile, the East did not
use a pitcher last night who
must toil in the All-Star tilt.
* * *
FRANKLY, WE are in favor
of the East going all the way
with one hurler, namely Cotton
Russell of Vernon,
Russell, the vvinningest pit-
cher in the league, is the one
bright hope for the East. He has
the lowest earned-run average
in the league and boasts a 1-1-4
Russell's last performance
was here Saturday night when
he blanked the Swatters 3 to 0
on five hits.
+ * *
TROUBLE MAY arise on the
East squad due to the replace-
ment of Shortstop Tony Guer-
rero, out with an injury. Wayne
Wallace, the next highest vote-
getter, was installed in the
East line-up as a utility infield-
Wallace, who was an All-Star
shortstop last year, has been
devoting his full time to first
base duties this season. So, if
East Manager Joe Berry swit-
ches him to shortstop in Guer-
rero's place, Wallace may feel
a little awkward.
Warren Sliter beat out Wal-
lace for the first sack job by a
| very wide margin, so Sliter is
entitled to the full-time job.
Fred Haller, the utility in-
fielder, plays shortstop and can
take up the slack made by
Guerrero. But just where are
they going to play Wallace?

BIG BAT—SIu Williams, Bal-
linger cellin' fielder, will add
balling power to the East line-
up in tonight's All-Star game
at San Angelo.
NEW YORK, July 1., (UP)—
Manager Casey Stengel of the
New York Yankees said today
that Cleveland’s Bob Lemon
was the biggest surprise of the
American league race.
Lemon, a converted outfield-
er, won his 14th game of the
season when he beat the Phila-
delphia Athletics, 10 to 2, last
night. He’s a cinch to win 20
games for the third consecutive
year and has an outside chance
of challenging the fabulous 30-
“It’s a four-way race in the
American League,” Stengel
said. "1 figure Cleveland is the
weakest of the four challengers
because you can pitch to guys
like Luke Easter, A1 Rosen and
Larry Doby. But that Lemon
keeps them in there. Every
time I look up he's winning an-
Lemon, who won 20 games in
1948 and 22 in 1949, did not
chalk up No. 14 in those years
until mid-August. His current
pace makes him a good bet to
win 25 this year. Bob Feller,
who won 2(1 in 1910, was the
last Cleveland pitcher to win
that many. Old Jim Bagby, who
won 31 games in 1920, holds the
record for a Cleveland pitcher.
“I figure Detroit is the No. 1
threat,” Stengel said. “They
got the lead and maybe they'll
get Virgil Trucks hack late in
the season to help their pitch-
ing. The Red Sox are next even
without Ted Williams and
Cleveland is next.”
