W.I. All Star Team Chosen

TACOMA, Sept. 7 —Spokane's second-place Indians landed four positions to dominate the Western International league all-star team picked by official scorers and announced here by Robert B. Abel, president of the circuit.
Tribe players named were pitcher Bob Costello, Shortstop Buddy Hicks, Third Baseman Bob Morgan and First Baseman Herb Gorman, the latter sharing honorary occupancy of the initial sack with Victoria's Jack Harshman when they wound up tied in the balloting.
Tacoma's Earl Kuper, the league's leading hitter, gained the catching berth, Art Lilly of Yakima was picked at second base; Frank Mullens of Vancouver, Ed Murphy of Bremerton and Bill White of Victoria were the outfield selections; and Wandell Mosser of Salem was chosen as the team's left-handed pitcher.
Bob Hedington and Glen Stetter of Tacoma were named utility infielder and outfielder, respectively, while Jack Wilson of Salem was the scorers' pick for the managerial post.
Costello's selection was the nearest thing to an unanimous choice, the big Spokane right-hander receiving seven out of eight votes, while Kuper and Mossor were the next most popular picks, each getting six votes.
