With two regulars out, one via : the injury route, and another by withdrawal, Coach Green and his tribe of luckless warriors arc faced with (in even greater problem and must exert everything at their disposal to cope with the situation.

Army Veteran Righthander May Return To Staff Of New York Giants ATLANJA, Co., Oct. 20 (UP) — Van Mnijlc Munso, the big right- hander who once was the fireball- Ing star of the lirooklyn Dodgers, ff rcudy It) trade lifs Army for a suit of civilian officials at Fort McPherson say Mungo will bo released from the service, and husky Van again will become tliglWe lo work for Hie New York Giants, who owned him before he was drafted earlier this year. \ Mungo's major league career started one spriiii: day in Florida, 13 years ago. Van was at the Brook. lyn Dodger training camp along with four other pitchers from [he Hartford club of the Eastern League. They had ripped Ihrough the Eastern the season before, and all of them but Mango had im- piT.sslv,, ivon-niid-losl records. Mungo was just a big rookie, fast and of the wild. Manager Wllkert Robinson Dodjjcrs sal hi Ills rucking clialr an thc clubhouse porch and watched »1] five of (Jic-jn warm u|>. Then he called over Coach Olto Miller. Robinson said: "Keep 1 Hie' bi? Buy, and send them other buins on their way." So they kepi Ihc big guy and he . furnished Brooklyn fans with thrills and headaches for years. He never managed to win 20 games in . any .season, but lie always gave ihc impression ibal lie could. In his , first big league ball game he turned on th c heat to beat Carl Hub- .oell, 3 lo 1. ! Other ballplayers, looking at iVfmigo's burning; speed, would shake Mich- heads and wonder why he didn't, win oftencr. One answer may be dial white Van still hud his speed he never quite learned lo pace himself. He just slood on the mound anil Ihreii- his hnrd one Until he' rah down—and then base I hits mined nil over Die place.; Every spring thc story was: "This will be MuiijjD's year. Just wiilcli the big boy so Ihis time." Ami : every fall they sang Ihe FlatDucl) theme song: "Wait 'till next year" Finally the Dodgers let Mungo go back to (lie minor's earlv In 1D41— his arm had g<iii c hnck oh him. Then they went on lo win the pennant without- the man who ,'hnci anchored the staff for-years. Later OSCEOLA, Oci. 20-The Osccola Eemlnolea reserves turned tables on Die Blylheville Juniors here last night as they trounced Coach "Pop" Mosley's youngsters, 1-0, to avenge the 13-7 defeat at Blytheville three weeks ago. It was a nifty ball game, a hard fought, well played battle between two almost evenly matched teams that packed thrills and spectacular plays that would have been a credit to more experienced elevens. Winners Have Ed£e The Semlhbles had Ihe decided edge in weight and experience but had to bear down all thc way to keep thc scrapping visitors from the goal litic. They were the recipients of some fortunate breaks that help al crucial moments. With three regulars, n, B. Hodge, Gerald licagnil, Billy Wayne Mc- I-'arliind riding (he' sidelines, the I'apooses did not have the scoring punch exhibited in (heir first encounter with thc redskins. But they kept hammering sway for pay dirt which they never reached, a corn- ball club, win or look over for Blytheville on the Osccola 45. On the lirst play Diokl e Greemvell raced around right end for 35 yards to the Osccola 10. Don Huey was thrown for a 10-yar.d loss on an attempted skirl around left end. Grecrivrell picked up fife on a spinner. Two other plays broke even, one a gnln , of 3 yards, the oilier a loss and Ihe ball went over lo Osceola on the 16. M Papooses GH Chance A fourth-down fumble' gave' the Papooses some hope and 1 the ball on Ihe Osceola 29. Huey and Grceii- wcll added eighl yards In Iwo tries but a fumbled attempted lateral put the ball back lo the 3G. An intercepted pass and subsequent recovery of the fumble stopped the Paps again. Forcing the Seminolcs to surrender the ball via the punt, shortly after the shroud half got under way, the Juniors engineered another promising drive that carried to tlic Osceola 15 but il bogged down and stopped when an Osceolan recovered a blocked pass. Another intercepted Blytheville pass put thc skids on the final drive on the Osceoln 33, tlic game ending just seconds later. Greemvell Leads Haps Long legged Greemvell and short Huey were the leading Pappose ground gainers. Captain Billy Bracey, Jack Elliott and John Hoover stood out on defense. Billy Shelden and Carlisle kept the Paps busy with their running, -„ -— -, b ,^™i, ,.,,„ while Jack Sarlain, John Lillicrap Seininpleji drove to' Ihe touchdown i aml Jimmy Hart were defensive ob- without losing lh e precious nug- slacles.
