Money Purchase No price was divulged, but it's rumored the Yankees shelled out j ne >ghborhood of $100000 and 5 players for the 2 athletes, who were widely sought after by major league clubs. . " Y °u never sit tight," Casey told newsmen in the Yankees' final news conference of the season Wednesday. "You can't afford to stand pat in this league. We're going to try to strengthen our pitching staff, although it looked pretty good in the last week. Sure, we could use a couple of pitchers. "I'd like to improve my outfield a little, too. We're willing to listen to anybody who has something reasonable to offer." Jensen, 22, is the former football star at the University of California. He is a bonus player. Owner C. L. "Brick" Laws, .in beating 14 big league clubs to his services, lured him at the close of the college baseball season last spring with a bonus of $40,000 plus a 3- year contract at $15,000 per. Great Outfield Prospect "My scouts tell me that Jensen Is the greatest outfield prospect in the minor leagues," said Casey. "He Is fast, has tremendous power, and owns the strongest arm in baseball since Bob Meusel." In 125 games with the Oaks, Jensen batted .261 this season. Included in his 122 hits were 21 doubles, 7 triples and 9 homeruns. He drove in 78 runs. Jensen is engaged to wed Zoe Ann Olsen, national diving champion.

Tulane Burns; Leahy Didn't Direct Irish When They Ran Up 59-6 Score in '47 Tilt Strange Offenses to Be Matched at Ames on Saturday Kansas City, (IP) —If you want to see a couple of strange football offenses operating against each other, go to Ames Saturday. Iowa State will pit its TV formation against a Kansas State offense that operates most of the T plays from a single wing. The Iowa State Cyclones used their fancy offensive successfully in tieing Illinois 20-20 and beating Kansas and Colorado of the Big Seven conference. Coach Abe Stuber says his formation is nothing more than a modified short punt. The Cyclones lineup in the standard T. The left halfback shifts 5 yards directly, behind center and the right halfback moves to a spot about one yard behind right tackle. The quarterback and fullback are stationed on either side of the left half and face each other. Kansas State, which has beaten Colorado and lost to Nebraska in the Big Seven, is enjoying its best season in many years. Coach Ralph Graham's Wildcats strike sharply to either side with Quarterback Jon O'Connor pitching out to Halfbacks Elmer Creviston and Hiram Faubion and Fullback Jerry Hackney hitting between the tackles. LEGION TO TAKE GRID SQUAD TO OREGON GAME Decorah — The Decorah high school varsity football squad will see the Iowa-Oregon football game at Iowa City October 29.

GINDLER, OWNER By PRESTON McGRAVV New Orleans, (U,R)—Coach Henry Frnka of Tulane university declined Thursday to speculate on whether Coach Frank Leahy of Notre Dame will consider the Notre Dame-Tulane football game Saturday worth his personal direction. The last time Tulane and Notre Dame played, in 1947, Leahy didn't bother to see the game. The story that Frnka and his team got was that Leahy thought it would be a good Saturday to scout Southern California. Tulane's Worst Beating In a practical sense, Leahy may have been right. Edward "Moose" Krause, then Leahy's line coach, directed a 59-6 Notre Dame victory over Tulane. It was the worst heating Tulane had taken since it started playing football in 1893. Whatever Leahy's purpose, his absence at that game in 1947 cut Frnka to the soul. When the shock of defeat wore off, it began to burn Tulane's football squad. Fourteen of the men who played Notre Dame in 1947 will go back Saturday. If anything, the snub probably has burned deeper in them, and players who didn't go to South Bend, Ind., in 1947 have been told about it time and again. Frnka flatly refuses to discuss the subject for publication. He was asked Thursday whether he expected to see Leahy at the game Saturday. "I don't know," he said in a tone that meant he didn't want to discuss it further. Stays With Team Frnka is most meticulous himself about observing the niceties of football etiquette. No matter how in- signif i c a n t a football team he is playing, Frnka is always Movte on the sidelines. Last week, for instance, T u lane played Southe astern Louisiana college. Southeast- FRNKA ern \youldn't lave had a chance if Frnka's roung son had been directing the ame. A report got out that Frnka night take the afternoon off to cout Notre Dame. When Frnka heard the report, he blew up. His scrubs beat Southeastern 40 to 0 while Frnka sat m the 50 yard line through 2i lours of steady rain. LSU Excepted The score of the game in 1947 accentuated the slight. With one exception, he will not allow any opponent to be beaten unmerci- ully by his team. The exception s Louisiana State university, with vhich Tulane has had a no-holds- barred series for more than 40 ears. Frnka refused to say whether e would run up a score on Notre Dame, if he could. He said that question is rhetorical, since he doesn't believe he has a chance of beating Notre Dame. Charles' Manager Looking Ahead to Another Title Bout By CHARLES McMURTRY San Francisco, (/P)—How cocky can you get? Ezzard Charles defends his NBA heavyweight boxing championship against Pat Valentino, the San Francisco Samson, here Friday night. But his manager's eyes are set on more distant green (back) fields. Virtually ignoring Valentino—:he local Latin with the long locks Jake Mintz talked Thursday- of a title defense for Charles before yearend. And he didn't mean the 15-rounder which may pack 20,000 fans in San Francisco's Cow Palace. Sure, Ez is a 1-5 favorite. The odds even might lengthen a bit before the Cincinnati Negro climbs into the ring Friday night. Mintz said he has no specific challenger in mind. He seemed to consider the .Valentino fight already won. Then, perhaps thinking suddenly of some $50,000 worth of unsold tickets, he remarked that Pat has a chance. "Any challenger does," Jittery Jake generalized. "Any time a champion steps into the ring he's in danger." Mintz said Charles will give anyone a crack at his crown—if there's enough money in it. He hinted strongly at a December defense—but refused to go further. He said the champ's projected 15- bout exhibition series for the northwest and Rocky mountain areas had been cut to 3 appearances. The reason: There's more money in a good title fight. So Ez may be pretty busy defending—if he can keep the crown. He won it only last June from Jersey Joe Walcott. He defended it in August with a 7th round KO of Gus Lesnevich.
