(AP Photofax). New Card Manager Plans Lineup Shuffle ST. LOUIS CAP) — Little Solly Hemus has been installed offically as the sixth St. Louis Cardinal manager in eight years and he's indicated there will be a good bit of lineup shuffling. Hemus, 34-year-old former infielder infielder for the Cards who came here from the Philadelphia Phils, said "The club needs more punch, pitching and greater depth." General Manager Bing Devine chipped in his agreement that a number of trades would be necessary necessary to restore the Cardinals as a pennant contender. "We've already already talked to some clubs, particularly particularly Cincinnati and San Francisco, Francisco, and Roy Hamey, Philadelphia Philadelphia general manager, and I will definitely get together during the Series," Devine said. Hemus said he himself would be seen on the playing field next year. "I'm in condition to play 00 games. I don't-think I'll play hat much, though. Don Blasin- game (Cardinal second baseman) is one of the finest in the league but if conditions warrant me pinch-hitting or playing defensively defensively in late innings, I'll go in." If so, Hemus would be the only playing manager in the majors. Veteran outfielders Del Ennis and Wally Moon both had the worst season of their careers this year and are expected to be high on the list of Cardinal players up for trade. The Cards will probably make a bid for hard-hitting rookies Wil lie Kirkland and Felipe Alou of the Giants. Part of the coaching shuffle is completed. Harry Walker was brought up from Houston and Johnny Keane, manager of Omaha, Omaha, was added. One or two more coaches will be named later. Hemus, the personal choice of Cardinal owner August A. Busch Jr., was acquired from Philadelphia Philadelphia in a trade of Gene Freese.

Win 11 Straight Title It was the llth straight victory of the post-season playoffs for the Millers, a run that started wil three straight over Wichita $ four in a row over Denver the Association. It ended a remarkable Jekyll and Hyde season for Minneapolis. A club that unaccountably played far better baseball on the road than at home made a gangway sprint through the playoffs after barely qualifying in its own league. Until Labor Day the Millers appeared headed for the second division. "Then we jelled," said Manager Gene Mauch. "It's hard to put your finger on the reason. Stu Locklin took over as a regular regular in the outfield. Al Schroll, Dean Stone and Riverboat Smith were our big pitchers. And we had fine relievers in Tommy Kurd and Harry Dorish."

Twenty years later in 1939 they won agab. Now 1959 is coming up. Of course, Cincinnati also won in 1940 so Smith, deposed as manager manager of the Philadelphia Phils only a little more than two months ago, might have to wait until 1960. The contract he signed Monday, however, with Cincinnati is only a one-year agreement. As manager of the Redlegs, who finished fourth for a second straight season, the 43-year-old Smith succeeds Birdie Tebbetts and Jimmy Dykes. Tebbetts, who took over the Redlegs in 1954, quit last Aug. 14 because, he said, he thought it would be best for baseball in Cincinnati. Cincinnati. Dykes finished out the season as an interim manager. Before he quit, Tebbetts had taken a terrific beating from Cincinnati's Cincinnati's fans because the Redlegs failed to live up to preseason expectations. expectations.

Chance Yogi Won't Start First Game By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer MILWAUKEE (AP) — For the first time since 1949 the New York Yankees may start a world Series Series game with catcher Yogi Berra Berra on the bench. Berra, the squat swatter who tiolds the series record for games played with 54, has started 47 consecutive consecutive games for the Yankees in seven series since 1947. Now, with Manager Casey Stengel ever mindful of the platoon power, Berra Berra may sit out Wednesday's opener opener against the Milwaukee Braves in favor of Elston Howard. Neither Stengel nor Milwaukee Manager Fred Haney has announced announced a lineup for the opener, but the right-handed hitting Howard Howard could get the nod over Yogi, a lefty, against southpaw Warren said of his passing. The Gophers' quarterback completed 12-for-21 and 207 yards in a losing cause against Washington last Saturday. Pitt contained Greene by having its bruising line exert continual pressure. The Gophers likewise looked to their defensive backfield as they fell victim to Washington's passing passing attack and must face Pitt's twosome of Ivan Toncic and Bill Kaliden. North Carolina, highly touted in pre-season estimates, but loser of two in a row, tried to batten down the defensive hatches for its Friday Friday night encounter with Southern California on the West Coast. Coach Jim Tatum expected trouble trouble from USC's ability to use th* run-or-pass option play that beat Oregon State and just lost to Michigan 20-19. Rutgers, one of the big surprises surprises Satruday with its 28-0 beating beating of highly touted Princeton, posed a single wing problem, for Colgate, which must also stop tailback tailback Bill Austin. The Rice Owls 30-7 victory over Sanford last weekend has Purdue Coach Jack Molenkopf re-arranging re-arranging his defenses. The Owls ran up 442 yards, 341 on the ground. Purdue Purdue stopped Nebraska, 28-0. Michigan faces the same kind of problem in prepping for its big game at Michigan State. The Spartans amassed 502 yards whipping whipping California, 32-12, while the Wolverines gave USC 298 yards in winning 20-19. Kansas solidified its defensive backfield by moving its No. 1 quarterback Bob Marshall to the left halfback spot and moving Bill Crank into the quarterback post. The Jayhawks have yet to score, this season, losing 42-0 to TCU and 12-0 to Oregon State. They face Colorado this week. One team that didn't need to work on defense was Auburn. The Nation's No. 2 team held Tennessee Tennessee to a minus 30 yards overall, and didn't yield a first down in winning 13-0. They face Chattanooga Chattanooga this week.
