A Thrill When He Dons Uniform By YOGI BERRA Written for The Associated Press •NEW YORK (AP) - Tor the last few years fellas keep asking me what World Series record Rives me the biggest thrill. I really couldn't answer that one. I get a thrill every time I put on « Yankee uniform. I'm 37 now and I guess Lou Gehrig said it best when he said "I'm lucky to be a Yankee." The World Series scheduled to start today against Cincinnati is my 12th. It used to be that I looked forward to the winner's share. But as you get older your sese of values change and you realize money isn't everything. f sec where I've earned $71,841 extra for playing in 68 World Sc- ries games. You know, I never added it up. To me it's more important to be playing. I have no idea what I'd like to do when I'm finished playing. I don't even think about that. And I have no plans about retiring. I just want to play from year to year. This scries means a lot to me because this will be the first time I've started in one as an outfielder. Oh, I played some outfield last year and in 1947 when I was a rookie of 22 and the Dodgers fan wild on the bases in my first two series games as a catcher. In the third game I pinch hit for Sherman Lollar and became the first player to hit a pinch home run in a World Series. But I don't like to look back and and maybe when I get older those dozen records I hold will mean much more. It's still nice to have fellas come up to you and remind vou of them. JW4tfU*£ AUTHOR - Yogi Berra, versatile New York Yankee catcher-outfielder, makes notes in Yankee Stadium in New York for a series of articles he is writing on the World Series for The Associated Press.

The selections from the lists of 15 players made available by each of the eight established clubs will be made by Houston and New York the day after the World Series ends. Although the lisis are in the hands of officials of the Mets and Colls, they will not be officially disclosed by the league, The AP has learned, however, that Roberts, Hodges, Schoendienst, Jones, Ashburn and Antonelli are on Ihe lists together with such other name players as Clem Labine, Johnny Logan. Vinegar Bend Mizell, and Bobby Shantz of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Billy Loes and Eddie Bressoud of the San Francisco Giants; Norm Larker and Roger Craig of ! the Los Angeles Dodgers, and !

Forgotten Men Helped The Reds NEW YORK (AP)-Birdie Tebbets was sitting oh a stairway talking with Johnny Keane. About 10 yards away stood Gabe Paul chatting with friends. It was the night before the scheduled start of the 1961 World Series between the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees They were on the outside, looking in. They were the forgotten men. ! Train Hits, i j Wants People To Help Selves WASHINGTON (AP)-Secretary of Commerce Luther H. Hodges said today he wished a lot of officially designated depressed areas would pull out of the federal aid program and conduct their own economic development projects. Hodges, who argued strongly for federal aid to hard-hit sections earb'er in the year, was surprisingly vehement in telling a news conference that the program has its shortcomings. His remarks were the more surprising because his department designates the area and administers the program. "I think psychologically it's bad to be called a depressed area," Hodges said. Tebbetts and Paul had a lot to do with putting together the Reds team that is heading into the World Series. Tebbetts, who quit as Reds' manager near the end of the 1958 season, now is manager at Milwaukee. Paul quit as general manager after the 1960 season to go to the new Houston club and then switched to Cleveland of Ihe American League. Trades engineered by new general manager, Bill DeWill, which brought second baseman Don Blasingame and pitcher Joey Jay to the Reds, had a lot to do with Cincinnati success this year. But it was a cinch Paul and Tebbetts also were thinking about O'Toole, Hook. Maloney, Bell, Posf, Purkey, Pinson, Robinson, Brosnan and Henry—players either traded for or signed during their regimes.

Patterson apparently felt that McNeeley, who comes from Boston, might have an advantage with a local referee.
