THE OTTAWA'HERALD Tuesday, October 3, 1961 Yankee Hitters Can Make Pitcher Wish He'd Stood In Bed BOBBY RICHARDSON, 2B TONY KUBEK, SS ROGER MARIS, RF MICKEY MANTLE, CF ELSTON HOWARD, C YOGI BERRA, LF BILL SKOWRON, IB CLETIS BOVER, 3B Mantle Doubtful Starter But Yanks Favored It's World Series Time By ED CORRIGAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees, with or without I Mickey Mantle, today ruled heavy 12-5 favorites to win the World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. Mantle, the junior partner in the M-M pitcher-wrecking company with 54 home runs, is recovering from minor surgery on his hip and is a questionable starter in the first game Wednesday. If Mantle hasn't recovered , WHITEY FORD enough, Manager Ralph Houk has nominated Hector Lopez to handle right field, with Roger Maris moving over to Mantle's centerfield spot. Whitey Ford (25-4), the bomber's top money pitcher for a decade, will take the mound against Cincinnati's Jim O'Toole (19-9) in the opener starting at 11 a.m. Ottawa time before a Yankee Stadium throng of about 70,000. Both are left-handers. The weather forecast is for continued rain into Wednesday with temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees.

"I see," observed Hutchinson, "that we're not supposed to have a chance. Well, we surprised people all season, and it's likely that we have one big one left." Most observers figure the only chance the Reds' have of springing the same kind of upset as the Pittsburgh Pirates engineered last year is for their pitchers to squash the Yankee long-ball hit- um, on Friday.

"They say," laughed Freese, But," he said, "even if I miss "you have to have strength down the first game, that doesn't mean I won't be all right for the rest oL the Series. Maybe it will get "belter quicker than I think." Mantle's dour outlook was not shared by the Yankees' team physician, Dr. Sydney Gaynor, or by Houk. "Of course he feels weak and sore," said Dr. Gaynor. "He has a wound that must heal. Knowing Mickey and how he responds to treatment, I think he'll play." Houk said he would not scratch the middle to win a pennant. Look down our middle. You have to look 350 feet from home plate (to Pinson) to find strength." •the fourth quarter at Emporia Mantle from ^e lineup until just before game time. Monday afternoon, but the rally came too late. A big third quarter for Emporia was enough for a 25-19 defeat of the Ottawans. "Sure, Mickey isn't feeling right," said Houk. "But that's to be expected. Wait until he's had a Ixwl or two of soup and a ! couple of steaks. Then notice the ! diference."

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The name of University of Oklahoma football coach Bud Wilkinson cropped up Monday in connection with the 1962 race for governor. Gov. J. Howard Edmondson told a news conference he had discussed the possibility with Wilkinson "on and off for about a year," but that he did not know if the Coach was interested. Wilkinson was not available for comment. Edmondson said he asked Wilkinson about a year ago about rumors the coach was considering the race. He said Wilkinson told him he was a registered Democrat.

Clemente, flashy Puerto Rican outfielder who has one of the best throwing arms in baseball, says he's entitled to a salary boost not for winning the batting crown but "as an all-around ball player." Clemente won the championship with a .351 average and succeeded teammate Dick Groat as batting kingpin. It was the first time the Pirates have had back-to-back batting champions since 1935 and 1936 when Arky Vaughan and Paul Waner won titles.

Minnesota, defeated 17-7 by Washington last New Year's Day, cast the deciding ballot for a 6-4 majority in favor of a tie-up with the Big Five of the West Coast. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There is no consolation in statistics, even when quite favorable. At least that is the plight faced by football Coach Cliff Speegle at Oklahoma State. On the basis of statistics from two games, the Cowboys of Oklahoma State would appear to be the top offensive team in the Big Eight Conference. This impression is quickly dispelled, however, by the won and lost column. The Cowboys have lost both games. Oklahoma State has compiled a total offense of 513 yards or more than 256 yards a game while limiting its opposition to 417 yards or an average of about 208 a game. The results: Iowa State defeated the Cowboys 14-7 and Colorado shut them out, 24-0. Missouri, with two victories and no defeats, ranks fourth in the j conference on offense but is No. 1 defensively. The Tigers have yielded 358 yards of 179 a game. Individual leaders this week include Iowa State's Dave Hoppmann in rushing. Hoppmann has carried the ball 45 times for 194 yards. Larry Corrigan of Kansas State tops the passers with 7 completions out of 15 attempts, good for 126 yards. Don Brewington of Oklahoma State leads pass receivers with 5 for 93 yards. Chuck McBridge of Colorado has the best punting average, 43.2 yards on 5 punts. John Hadl of Kansas holds the best average on punt returns. He has carried back four for an average of 11.7 yards. Missouri's Bill Tobin is the leading scorer with two touchdowns and four conversions for 16 points. Kansas, highly regarded in preseason forecasts only to lose its first game of the season to TCU and then manage no better than a tie with Wyoming, may have suffered another setback. The Jayhawks starting left halfback, Hugh Smith, missed practice Monday. Coach Jack Mitchell said: "We won't know definitely for a day or two, but it looks is though Smith will have to drop out of school because of personal problems." The 200 pound, 6-3 junior from Guymon, Okla., is Kansas' leading rusher with a 5.7 yard average. Mitchell said "we plan to play Hadl half the time at left halfback against Colorado." Hadl is the No. 1 quarterback but played halfback in his freshman and sophomore vears. Bowling Scores WEDNESDAY NIGHT LADIES Moore—4 High 10-30 — O. WhlUcre. 1»0-4»S i Wrl»ht—0 I High 10-30 — S.
