Anthon Defeats Corwith 5-1 f tor Fall Prep Baseball Title JEFF HEATH . —Heading for Release Heath Placed on Waivers by Braves Boston, (/P)—Waivers, i: for the purpose of .giving him his. unconditional release," have been asked by the Boston Braves for Jeff Heath, veteran, hard hitting outfielder. The Braves, who announced the move just before midnight, said the waiver period would be up Thursday but that Heath is under no compulsion to report to any major league club which might wish to pick him up for the nominal fee of one dollar. Because he is a veteran of 10 years in the majors, Heath is free to deal with any club. General Manager John Quinn said he talked by phone with Heath who is at home in Bow, Wash., and offered him a minor league manager job in the Boston system. Heath asked for time to think over the offer. Heath played little for the Braves this past season because of a fractured ankle suffered in Brooklyn just before the 1948 World Series which the Braves lost to the Cleveland Indians. He came to the Braves from the St. Louis Browns after- being waived out of the • American 1 league where he had done plenty of hefty slugging. Slater, (/?) —Anthon is the new Iowa high school fall baseball champion. The new champs defeated Corwith 5-1 Wednesday in the finals of the fall baseball tournament. Carroll Sawin, Anthon fastballer, pitched a masterful 4-hit game. Anthon jumped off to a 3-run lead in the first inning and was never threatened. The runs came on Earl Peterson's single, a walk, an error and Bill Emery's single. A touch of wildness by Sawin and faulty fielding gave Corwith its lone run in the 5th inning. Corwith 3rd Baseman Roy Johnson was hit by a pitched ball and reached 3rd when Brother Duane's liner went through the 2nd baseman. Johnson scored when Jim Davis hit into a fielder's choice. Anthon's other runs came in the 3rd inning on 2 singles and a sacrifice, and in the 5th on Earl Peterson's triple and an error. It was Anthon's first state championship in several tries. Anthon reached the finals the last 2 years. The line score: RHE 1 4 5 552 Ship- Keith Corwith 000 010 0 Anthon 301 010 x Walt Babcock and Bob man; Carroll Sawin and Sawin.

Gene Fritz and Buster Mealey probably will be the only Gophers to miss the Minnesota-Ohio State clash at Columbus Saturday, it appeared Thursday.

WISCONSIN Madison, Wis., (U.R)—Bobby Petruska, improved but still limping from an injured ankle, appeared Thursday as the Badgers sole hope for the offensive quarterback spot against Navy here Saturday.

ILLINOIS Champaign, 111., (U.R)—Illini grid- ders bent their efforts Thursday to an effective defense against a powerful Missouri weapon, the running pass off the split T formation. The squad had a stiff session Wednesday against freshmen using this type of attack and were in for more of the same Thursday afternoon.

SPORTS By ED SAINSBURY Chicago, (U.R)—Charlie Grimm, the Chicago Cubs' vice president in charge of baseball, went to the World Series to dicker for players with plenty of money and probably an idea that he might pick up any or all of 12 Brooklyn Dodger stars. The tipoff on the Cubs' desire for help from the pennant winning Dodgers came when President and Owner Philip K. Wrigley ransacked the Windy CHy to get pictures of an even dozen Brooklyn stars. It wasn't certain he wanted to scan their faces just to select the players he wanted, but he probably didn't want them for advertising. Imposing List Wrigley underlings listed 5 in-* 'fielders, Spider Jorgensen, Peewee Reese, Eddie Miksis, Jackie Robinson and Preston Ward, 4 pitchers, Ralph Branca, Don Newcombe, Rex Barney and Paul Minner, 2 catchers, Roy Campanella and Bruce Edwards, and one outfielder, Carl Furillo. They got pictures of nearly all of them. Dodger Chieftain Branch Rickey reportedly arrived here Wednesday presumably he "planned to continue matching wits with Grimrn over at least some of the Brooklyn dozen, and "looking for one more pitcher." But both he, if the report were true, and Grimm could not be located late Wednesday night in the Windy City. Cub sources were ROUNDUP by Huqh S Fullerton. ir New York, (/P) — Dr. Clarence Rungee of New Haven, Conn., a football fan from away back, weighs in with a protest against the 2-platoon system on these grounds. . . ', "A football player on the defensive platoon has no opportunity whatsoever of advancing the ball unless he is clever and quick enough to get hold of a fumbled ball or an intercepted pass. . . . Then on the very next play the guy who is interested in being on the aggressive side is removed so the offensive platoon can continue" . . . Rungee wants to go back to the system whereby a man removed from a game could not re-enter during the same period. . . . That, he says, would develop all-around players . •. . High School Sports Trail Sounds good, but what about the good player who spends his entire college career as bench-warming sub for a 60-minute star? . . . Or how about the poor coach who has plenty of trouble telling a thick-headed tackle, "You run that-a-way" and who then would also have to explain, "You grab him this-a-way." Incomplete Pass Cadet-Midshipman Paul Olsavsky of Kings Point, and the publicity dept. both claim this is true. . . , During the year at sea required of the merchant marine lads, Olsavsky carried a football on his journeys and at each port he hired someone to be the receiver while he practiced passing. ... In Prance it was a Marseille dock walloper; in England, a former soccer player. . . In India not one of the dock workers would accept his money . . .Paul finally sought out the boss stevedore and asked how come. . . . "Sorry, young officer," replied the Indian, "but all my men are Moslems and therefore forbidden to tpuch pigskin."

The Rams knocked ofi highly regarded .Iowa City 14-7 last Friday. Wally Schwank also has done a good rebuilding job at Davenport. * * * Dubuque will be the locale for another top; attraction this weekend. Loras Academy and Central Catholic of Sioux City tangle Sunday in a game that will decide the unofficial Iowa Catholic school championship. Loras holds victories over Dowling of Des Moines and St. Ambrose Academy, the latter a 26-24 victim. * * * Tipton, defeated last week 6-0 by West Branch for its first loss in 2 seasons, returns to Wamac conference play Friday night against Monticello. Tipton heads the conference with a 3-0 mark. * * •* Atlantic, involved in a red-hot with Shenandoah for the Oct. 13, 1949 17 Maton City GUbc-Gaietle, MI**B City, U. Dyer to Stay as Manager of Redbirds St Louis, (U.R)— Fred M. Saigh, Jr., owner of the St. Louis Cardinals said that Eddie Dyer will manage the team in 1950 and that he is confident the "Cards will be pennant material." "I'm perfectly satisfied with his work," Saigh said of Dyer .who has one yeai- to go on a 2-year contract. Part of the ills that made the Birds DYER wind up one fold up in the last days of the 1949 season and game behind the pennant winning Brooklyn Dodg- evs in the National league can be solved with new players, Saigh said. weakness, hey? North Caro- Bauer Meets Lindsay in Quarterfinals of Women's Texas Open Fort "Worth, Texas, (/P) —A 15- year-'old Californian who's been cutting down the veterans in the Women's Texas .Open golf tournament faces another stiff test in Thursday's quarterfinals. Young Marlene Bauer meets Marjorie Lindsay of Decatur, III. Each won a 19 - hole victory Wednesday. Marlene ousted Defending Champion Polly Riley and Marjorie deieated Babe Zaharias. Kansas State Champion Marilyn Smith moved ahead with a 3 and 1 victory over Marlene's 20- year-old sister, Alice. Marilyn's quarter-finals opponent will be another state champion, Betty MacKinnon, the Arkansas titlist who plays out of Mt. Pleasant, Texas. Miss MacKinnon ousted Betty Jameson of San Antonio 3 and 1. lina U. is looking for the guy who broke into the publicity office and stole a stack of photographs of Charlie Justice. . . . Probably some frustrated opponent who found that was the only way he could tackle the Choo Choo. CHARLIE GRIMM —Ready for Business unable to confirm reports that Rickey arrived and that he and Grimm, might be continuing the bargaining they started while the Bum stars were losing the world title to the New York Yankees. Would Be. a Big: Deal And maybe some of the dozen will show up in Cub uniform next year, although certainly such a deal would entail a tremendous amount of money, probably over $1,000,000 should all players be involved, or less should only some come to Chicago. Grimm confirmed that he talked with nearly every genex~al manager or club owner in the National league. "I milled around," he said, "finding out what we can work for, and I think I laid tne groundwork for some future deals. But nothing now." "We're going to try to do some fixing up, but our club isn't so bad. We're not going to tear it apart. We've got good material and we're going to fill in a couple of spots. "We're going to give one good try," he said. "We're always going to keep trying." Wrigley was unwilling to announce how much money Grimm was authorized to spend in his World Series junket into the trading marts, but he confirmed that cash was available to buy players.

Hein took over a squad that had only 2 regulars. Top newcomer is Halfback Wayne Bergstrom who sprinted to 4 touchdowns in East's 32-13 win over Mason City.

Hitzelberger had just said Wednesday 1:hat the 2 schools "several weeks ago" extended their contract until 1953. It had been scheduled to expire in 1951.

MWDRY S£W/&i SOUTH PHONE J7J Requests Coaches to Throw Away the Old Crying Towel New York, (U.R)—Harvey Harman of Rutgers Thursday called upor. his fellow football coaches to throw away their time-honored crying towel and "tell the truth." "Let's stop knocking our own product," he said. "No coach can be asked to say his team will win. He only puts himself on the spot if the team loses. But any coach can say, "We've got a good football team. Our line has a couple of weak spots but our backs are'fast and I think our passer is excellent. T think we'll be up against it Saturday, though, because our opponents have a better line and a powerful offense." Such talk is a long way, of course, from the usual coaching laments, such as Frank Leahy's pre-season "fears" that his Notre Dame team would be hard put to win a game in 1949. Harman thinks it's perfectly fine for a coach to express respect for the opposition, but the coach should not "give the impression that he has a lot of helpless young men who will be lucky to keep their feet during the playing of I the national anthem." Minnesota Tickets Popular Iowa City—Iowa has sold some 4,700 tickets for the Minnesota game at Minneapolis Nov. 5 — and only about 300 still remain on sale. It was one of the biggest sales for a Hawkeye out of town game in history.
