The jump-shooting Mahaffey liad popped in 13 points from long range during Ihe opening half and Cache lagged by just two points, 20-18, at intermission. Mahaffey Mahaffey came back in the last half, but his effectiveness was reduced and Douglass had little trouble p u l l i n g away.

UP) -- "I wouldn't be signing i[ I didn't j think I could play enough. That! bench drives me bananas," i With those words, 40-year-old Theodore Samuel Williams today prepared to continue contract talks with the Boston Red Sox. The great lelt-handed slugger, lior.ored at a baseball dinner here, sai;3 he will visit newly-appointed Sox General Manager Bucky Harris Harris tomorrow at Fenway Park. Williams already has had an hour session with Joe Cronin. I am belter Tight now than I was last year at this time," Williams Williams said. "A year ago my ankle really hurt me. I thought for a while I might have to call it quits." Williams, ol course, rounded into form to beat out teammate Pete Runnels for the American League batting championship on j the final day of the season. It was Ted's sixth hitting crown. "Remember I'm 40," Williams kept repeating. "I'm not shooting at any goals. Alter all, how many 40 year old ball players do you recall who did too much?" "I just want to play as much possible," Williams added. "I wouldn't be signing if I didn't think I could play enough. That bench drives me bananas." Williams said he had no managerial managerial aspirations for the future when the subject was mentioned. As for [he Red Sox in '59, Williams Williams says a lot hinges on what Vic Werlz can do. The power hitter hitter was acquired in a trade with C l e v e l a n d . Wertz. missed much of last season due to a broken ankle. "If Wertz can continue to hit it would lielp us a lot," Williams said. "For one thing, the pitchers would be more careful about walking me w i l h Vic coming next." Williams called Wcrtz one of the four best left-handed hitters in the American League ever the past decade. He mentioned Yogi Berra and Eddie Robinson but refrained from including his name. In one of his rare moments, Williams Williams attended the dinner sporting a necktie. "Maybe it's a jinx because we had a flat tire on the way up," Williams said. Introduced to the wife of New York Yankee M a n a g e r Stengel for the first time, Williams Williams brought a laugB\when he said: "I'm glad to have finally met the boss of this outfit."
