Each club had to list 15 available men, seven of whom were on the list Aug. 31 and thus came under the regular 25-player limit, and eight of whom were out on ""option or under control. "There are no great stars on the list," Giles admitted. "But there are players on the list thai the club normally wouldn't sell for $75,000.

The famous w York Yankee catcher, who lolds more World Series records han any other man, will write 'or AP afternoon papers throughout the series. By YOGI BERRA Written for The Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) - Don't augh. I might just as well become a sports writer. Didn't !asey Stengel start out as a left- handed dentist? And didn't Johnny Neun, an old Baltimore socker writer, become manager of the incinnati Reds? You could look it up. I got that expression from being around Stengel in so many World Series. After all he called me his assistant manager. I heard him tell it •jo his writers a few times. Casey used to ask me about the Look at how long Whitey Ford las been around. Remember Whitey broke in at a tough time against Vic Rashi (21 wins), Ed Lopat (21) and Allie Reynolds (17) and he won his first World Series start against the Phillies in 1950. Should have had a shutout, too. Aside from what Roger Man's and Mickey Mantle did this year in helping us Yankees set home run records, I'd like to comment on the fine job Ralph Houk did as FRANK ROBINSON, LF WALLY POST, RF GENE FREESE, 3B GORDY COLEMAN, IB DARRELL JOHNSON, C our manager. Here is a fellow who went to bat only twice in World Series action. And he tried to take my job as a catcher on the Yankees. He never quit trying and look where he is today. Why, now I'm not even his assistant manager. He did it all himself. So not only did I lose that job this year but also my job as No. 1 catcher on one of the greatest teams in baseball. We hope to prove that in the World Series starting Wednesday in Yankee Stadium. I'll be out in left field, and fel- las have said it's the toughest position on the team in October when those late afternoon shadows seem to hide the ball. And all those people blowing out cigarette smoke from our triple decker. Radioactivity Brings Warning SEOUL, South Korea (AP)-The South Korean Atomic Energy Agency reported today it had detected up to 16 times as much radioactivity as normally permissible for human beings in rain that fell Saturday.

New Era Beginning At Cleveland CLEVELAND (AP) - The signing of Mel McGaha as manager of the Cleveland Indians marks ;he beginning of a new era in laseball here. Gone is the easy good humor of Jimmie Dykes, who was a symbol of a slower, happier time. McGaha is a young, tough leader who has a reputation for hitting hard. "I have one philosophy in baseball," said the new skipper following his appointment Monday. "That is to win. I play to win and I'll do anything to achieve that purpose. I know that sounds brutal, but there it is." McGaha, at 35 the youngest manager in major league baseball, was the Indians' first base coach this season. Dykes, 64, was released just before the Tribe's finale in Los Angeles Sunday. < > &* <* * 44 V s&MS When he was handed his pink slip Dykes said he felt sorry for his successor. "This job is murder," he said. "The troublemakers make it a suicide position." General Manager Gabe Paul admitted there were some troublemakers in the Tribe's ranks when he handed McGaha the job of pulling the Indians together. "We know we have a personality problem on this club," he said. "It has hurt us. That's one reason McGaha was brought in."
