  On Page 1: Actress Mary Astor, ‘Morbid and Despondent’ in Recent Days, OK After Suicide Try   The Baseball Once-Upon-A Times. “All the News  That Fits, We Print”   FINAL EDITION  Including final results of all ball  games VOL. 1, No. 24FIVE CENTS WEDNESDAY, MAY 9, 1951 Giants, Cardinals Slug it Out Late, Maguire’s 2 Homers the Difference    NEW YORK   —    The Giants’ Jack Maguirespent seven innings watching Tuesday night’s game, and two innings deciding it.Inserted as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the eighth inning with his team trailing 7-3,Maguire hit a two-runhomer. He added a game-winning two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth to give New York a 10-9 victoryover St. Louis.They were the first two homers of Maguire’s major  league career. The win kept New York in first place, one game ahead of hard-charging Philadelphia.The Giants seemed to have control of thegame early. Whitey Lockman and Ray Noblehomered back-to-back in the second, andEddie Stanky scored on an error in the third togive starting pitcher Larry Jansen a 3-0 lead  —    a seemingly safe advantage given Jansen’s 0.97 ERA entering the game.But the Cardinals struck for seven runs in the top of the eighth. Dick Cole’s go -aheadtwo-run single highlighted the frame. Maguire’s homer cut the score to 7 -5 in the bottom of the eighth, but Stan Musial matchedit with a two-run shot of his own in the ninth. Stanky’s two -run double drew the Giants towithin a run in the bottom of the stanza.Maguire, the next batter, homered to left off Cloyd Boyer (0-1) to make a winner of re-liever George Spencer (1-1). AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere around the National League: Jim Konstanty threw 5 2/3 innings of one-hit relief as the Phillies blanked the visitingPirates, 2-0, for their fourth win in a row.Konstanty (4-0) found himself pressed intoearly duty when Philadelphia starter KenHeintzelman was ejected in the fourth inning after hitting Pittsburgh’s Wally Westlake with a  pitch and participating in the ensuing fracas.Westlake was tossed as well.Together, Heintzelman and Konstanty held the Bucs to two hits. Puddin’ Head Jones broke a scoreless tie with a run-scoring single in thesixth, his sixth RBI in the past three games. Pittsburgh’s Mel Queen fell to 0 -3 despiteallowing one run and striking out seven in sixinnings. Sam Jethroe extended his hit streak to 14games and scored twice as the Braves beat thevisiting Reds, 4-3.Max Surkont (2-3) won his second straightstart, allowing three runs in eight innings. Pinch hitter Hal Jeffcoat singled home thetie-breaking run in the top of the ninth inning asthe Cubs topped the Dodgers, 8-4. Chicago’s Randy Jackson hit his first homer.   AMERICAN W L PCT.

To wind up theday, he started pouring water into the bath.The hose got away from him and the water   —  of about 200 degrees Farenheit temperature,the doctor said  —  covered him solidly from thewaist down. He said they were first and seconddegree burns. “It really burned at first,” said Bob, “but after  I was treated I felt fine. I think all the sorenessshould be gone by tomorrow. And that goes for my back, too. “If anything, the back will keep me out longer than the burns. Anyway, I expect to be  pitching batting practice tomorrow night.”  Feller has won all three of his starts this sea-son for the front-running Indians, hurling acomplete game on each occasion.He may have helpedknock Sox starter Dick Littlefield (0-1) out of thegame after 1 2/3 innings.But Chicago responded in kind, knocking A’s starter  Bobby Shantz from thegame after 1 2/3 innings.Orestes Minoso, whowent from Cleveland toChicago in that April 30 trade, pounded his firstWhite Sox homer in the first inning and addedan RBI single as part of a four-run second that cut the A’s lead to 6 -5.Philadelphia reliever John Kucab took it fromthere. Kucab (2-0) hurled 6 2/3 innings of CHICAGO  —  Gus Zernial has played sixgames since being traded to Philadelphia, none in his new home park. But it’s safe to say he’scaught the attention of A’s fans.  Zernial, the slugging outfielder who came tothe Athletics from the White Sox in a three-teamswap April 30, beat up on his old Chicago team-mates Tuesday with a homer and five RBI in Philly’s 7 -5 win.And of all places  —  in his old home park.Zernial hit a three-run homer in the top of the first to give the A’s an early 3 -0 lead. His tworun double in the second extended that lead to 6-1. Not bad for a guy who came into the game batting .200 without a homer or an RBI.Zernial, however, was not a one-man team.BROOKLYN (AP)  —  The Brooklyn Dodg-ers on Tuesday optioned right-hander RexBarney to their Fort Worth farm club.Barney, a potential great, never could master control consistently. After a disappointingspring showing, he asked to be placed on thevoluntary retired list.The Dodgers, hoping he would regain his1948 form, when he won 15 games, obtainedwaivers on him from the other 15 major leagueclubs. Thus, Barney remains in Dodgers chain. Joe Page faces the prospect of being cut loose by the Yankees if he fails his “lastchance” test.   Page hasn’t pitched since March 17, when he was stricken with a sore shoulder, but he will be given a chance within the next nine days of   proving to manager Casey Stengel that he’s still good enough to stick with the team. Commissioner A.B. (Happy) Chandler de-nied a plea by four Michigan members of theClass A Central League for $40,000 of themoney paid the Detroit Tigers for their radio broadcasts.The four clubs  —  Flint, Muskegon, GrandRapids and Saginaw  —  had asked for a shareof the broadcast money, claiming broadcastingof Tiger games in their territory violated base- ball law and hurt their own attendance. Feller Has a Hot Time,OK After Scald Scare scoreless relief and knocked home an insurance run to boot, pulling the A’s to within percentage  points of the second-place White Sox.Billy Hitchcock singled to extend his hitstreak to 13 games. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the American League: Ted Gray (2-2) held the Yankees to two runsand four hits over 8 1/3 innings, and Vic Wertzlaunched his fourth home run in six games asDetroit beat New York, 3-2.Hal White got the final two outs for his firstsave. Allie Reynolds (2-1) took the loss, allow-ing three runs in six innings. Detroit’s Dick Kryhoski hit his third homer of  the season.
