I'VE STOOD IN
FOUR VISITORS IN
We took only four men to the Relays-Lorenzo Wright, of the 1948 Olympic team, Buddy Coleman, Leon Wingo and Irv Petross. This foursome took the 880-yard relay in 1:26, the 440-yard relay in :41.7 while Wright and Coleman ran two-three by inches behind Indiana's Chuck Peters in the 100-yard dash, won in :09.7. Just to make the day complete Wright took the broad jump in 23 feet 8� inches to give Wayne three outright titles, a second and a third. The two trophies and the nine gold watches were on display for a week in downtown Detroit.

?Toski, Cooper and Barber tied for second place, so their owners (F. Hudspeth, J. Blankenship and D. Frankel) combined second, third and fourth place money and split it three ways: each got $27,337.50. The Messrs. Gil Dye (Maxwell), R. E. Peters (Furgol) and Chick Ross (Middlecoff) all made $9,112.50 from their chattels' three-way tie for fifth place.—ED.
PAUL PUT THE CAP
This remarkable double performance for the Indians on May 1, he suggests, is unparalleled in baseball history. Not so.
When the Gashouse Gang represented St. Louis, Dizzy and Paul Dean combined to amaze the crowd attending a double-header between the Cards and, I believe, the Boston Braves. After Diz had subdued the Braves properly with a one-hit opener, Paul put the cap on the bottle with a no-hit effort.
In fact, it could have very well been a double no-hitter. Dizzy has reputedly intimated as much ("If I'da known Paul was gonna throw a no-hitter, I wouldn'ta give up that one hit in the first game").
