That 1953 was a year for new stars was emphasized in the fact that there were only three holdovers from last year's team, Rosen and Yogi Berra arid Mickey Mantle of the Yankees. Rosen received every vote of the special 24-man committee of the Baseball Writers of America while catcher Berra and first baseman Mickey Vernon of Washington, the league batting champion, were named on all but one bnllot.

HOOPLE Interference Champion Egad! There are times when I become disillusioned with the intellectual fairness of my zillions of gentle readers. What do they expect of a man? My prediction on a recent Saturday is a case in point. I forecast a victory for Kansas State over Nebraska by a score of 20- to-13. This was one of the greatest upsets in history, and only Hoople, among 7645 pigskin prophets, was correct on the winner. But the final score happened to be 27-to-0, and because I prognosticated a 20-to-13 result, I have become the subject of verbal abuse from coast to coast. Crabbed sports page figure filberts, who never dreamed in the first place that the Manhattan Wildcats ever would come close to defeating those Cornhuskers, now vent their caustic spleen because of a slight difference in points! But I am a patient man, and so is Dr. Zlobotny, whose system of abstruse catalytic delineations I am following for the present. Dr. Zlobotny simply shrugs at criticism. I don't think he understands it — he speaks only low Egyptian, you know—hak-kaff!. Now proceed with today's forecast, which appears to me to be just about perfect: Colgate 21, Dartmouth 20 Columbia 14, Harvard 7 Cornell 21, Yale 14 Navy 20, Princeton 12 Pitt 21, Notre Dame 20 Purdue 20, Wisconsin 13 Ohio State 27, Penn G Michigan 20, Northwestern 20 Oklahoma 34, Kansas 7 Michigan State 20, Indiana 0 Illinois 26, Minnesota 14 Alabama 20, Tennessee 12 Texas 27, Arkansas 14 Duke 20, Army 6 Auburn 14, Georgia Tech 7 La.

Berra, after a slow start when he was weakened by chronic colitis, was the hottest Yankee hitter in the stretch, and as usual outclassed the other catchers behind the bat. He wound up with a .298 average, 27 homers, and 108 runs batted in. Second baseman Billy Martin, the Yankee World Series hero, collected 12 votes to win the berth from Billy Goodman of Boston, who had nine. The marching years finally removed little Phil Rizzuto from the honor squad and a kid with a great future, young Kuenn, took over. He received 12 votes. Minoso set the pace in the outfield voting with 20 while Bauer and Mantle drew 13 apiece to edge the No. 4 man, slick fielding Jim Piersall of the Red Sox, who received 11 votes. Porterfield with 20 votes was the standout pitcher with his 22 victories and just 10 defeats on a fifth place team. He had nine shutouts and 24 complete games. Pierce had 10 votes based on his 18-12 record, 186 strikeouts, tops for' the league, and seven shutouts. ACE LEAGUE Elfiln Conditioners B72 700 Koto Hooter S62 B!)7 922 Pepsi Cola ....

Sid Flaherty, managei of Carl "Bobo" Olson, the American middleweight champion, was doing the talking. "Bobo throws punches all the way, three minutes, every round," said Sid. "Ten rounds, fifteen rounds, he will be in there throwing all the time. "Turpin will have to hustle a lot more than he did with Humez if he expects to beat Bobo. Even if he does I feel Bobo will win." Flaherty made his comments after watching a bob-tailed movie of the June Randy Turpin-Charley Humez fight shown Monday in a niid-town restaurant for the benefit of American and British newsmen and the fight mob.

Still ranked as a leading contender for Gavilan's title, Turner nevertheless tipped the beam at 156 while plodding to a 10-round decision over Italo Scortichini at Detroit last Wednesday night. And he's doubtful whether he can ever make the 147-pound welterweight limit again. "And we won't try to find out until it's necessary," said Manager George Katz Monday. Katz, noting that Gil is working to make 155 pounds for his 10-rounder with Johnny Bernardo at the arena here Thursday night, said he doesn't expect another welterweight title shot before next summer anyway.
