Players Deny Bean Ball Try In Big Series Yank Bench Rides Hard but Shantz Denies Headhunt By ED COKRIGAN NEW YORK, Oct. 4. (IP) Is the World Series developing into a bean ball feud? Nope, said the Milwaukee Braves, who squared the series at 1-1 with the New York Yankees yesterday. UTnpire Jocko Conlan was forced to warn Art Ditmar of the Yanks against throwing at the Braves yesterday after he hit Johnny Logan and sent Hank Aaron into the dirt. Logan had crashed a home run off Bobby Shantz and the next time he came, up in the game, won by the Braves, 4-2, Ditmar clipped him. "I wasn't mad," said Logan, "I was happy to get on base." Commented Aaron: "It didn't bother me. I don't know if it was intentional or not. 1 don't know Ditmar that well. I remember hitting against him a little in the Sally league, but I don't remember him ever throwing at me." Braves' catcher Del Crandall also had to hit the dirt in the seventh and that brought Conlan to the mound. "I don't think he threw at me," said Crandall. "If he did that's part of baseball. What's the difference? I was told later it was a curve, anyhow." Crandall, however, wasn't happy ... "That Yank bench was riding us hard in the second inning," he related. "I was closest, so I could hear them the best. I told the boys they were getting on us, threatening to run us out of the park. We had been quiet until then. But the boys got mad and started yelling back and, I guess, fighting back, too." Burdette, for his part, didn't hide the fact that he was ready to trade beaners with Ditmar. . "I guess it looked like a knockdown party was starting," he said, referring to the fact that he sent Gerry Coleman into the dirt in the fifth. "If something like that happens I guess they should know we axe as good at it is they are." Braves' manager Fred Haney was happy with the performance of left fielder Wes Covington, a notorious good hit, no field operative. Covington grabbed a liner by Bobby Shantz in the second inning with a backhanded stab. "If he hadn't caught it," said Haney, "it would have been two runs and maybe more. But it was no accident. The guy worked hard on his fielding and now he's reaping the benefits." Said Covington: "The best way .to correct anything is to play in games. But you can get a lot out of practice, too. I go out and chase balls until I'm ready to drop when we're home. "Also Red Schoendienst showed me how to play the hitters. I'd say he helped me the most, you have no idea how it can help you if you know the. hitters. And Red showed me just how to play them." He said two of the reasons the conference will be tougher are "two new coaches Frank Broy-les at Missouri and Jim Myers at Iowa State." SAW? SAFETY 4 WHEEL SPECIAL BRAKE ADJUSTMENT 1.

UP) Back home with a split in the two games played at Yankee Stadium, the suddenly stimulated Milwaukee Braves, from Manager Fred Haney down, were confident today they would beat the New York Yankees although the odds- makers still made the proud American League champions a slight 6-5 favorite to capture their second straight world series. Elated by his team's fine all- around performance yesterday that backed up Lew Burdette's brilliant pitching with a 4-2 tri umph, Haney plans to throw Bob Buhl, the last of his big three, at the Yankees tomorrow in the first of three consecutive games at County Stadium. The 18-game winner will be opposed by Bob Turley, New York s hardest throwing pitcher. A partisan crowd of more than 47,000, en couraged by predicted cloudy but favorable weather, is expected to be on hand for the first world series game ever to be played in Milwaukee. BTTHL VS. TURLEY Both teams will most certainly present altered lineups from those that staged a terrific battle before 65,202 Yankee Stadium fans yesterday in a game that was still in doubt until Hank Bauer rapped into a game-ending force play to leave the tying runs on the basepaths. It was the kind of a victory that soared the underdog Braves' hopes to a new high and a defeat that caused the glum Yankees to regard the underrated Milwaukeeans with new respect. "Those fellows showed our guys they mean business," declared Casey Stengel, the all-knowing New York manager. "This was a big game for them. They're going to be tougher to beat from now on. Mind you, I'm hot saying we won't do it but it's not going to be easy. Not from the looks of the way they battled us today." Taking a cue from his players, who fought the Yankees tooth and nail in the second game, even to the extent of exchanging harsh words and beanballs, the usually mild-mannered Haney hurled a veiled challenge at Casey's crew, KNOW WE'LL WIN "We know we will win now," he said defiantly. "We're over the hump. We stood up to those guys ROLLAN MELTON, Sports Editor October 4, 1957 Carmen Basilio 'Man of Month' NEW YORK, Oct. 4. UP) Welterweight champion Carmen Ba-silio's victory over middleweight ruler Sugar Ray Robinson not only gained Basilio the 160-pound crown but earned him the "fighter of the month" award in the Ring magazine's monthly ratings released today. It also put him high on the list for the fighter of the year prize. Robinson became the No. 1 challenger with Gene Fullmer, another former -champion, dropped to second place. He was followed by Rory Calhoun, White Plains, N. Y., Joey Giardello, Philadelphia, Charley Humez, France; Joey Giambra, San Francisco, Spider Webb, Chicago, Charley Joseph, New Orleans, Bobby Boyd, Chicago, and Yama Bahama, Bimini, B.W.I. VALLI STILL HURT PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 4. UP) Stanford's first string fullback Lou Valli, who suffered a knee injury last week, will travel1 to Houston with the team but isn't expected to see action against Rice on Saturday night. Adding to the fullback problem, second stringer Jim Byrer, also hurt against Northwestern last Saturday, isn't making the trip. in their own back yard and held them even. Now they've got to play us three games in our park. I think pitching will be the key to this series and I know we ve got the pitching." In an effort to make use of as much lefthanded batting strength as possible against the right-handed Turley, Haney will open with a revised lineup that will in elude the spectacular rookie. Bob Hazle, in place of the veteran Andy Pafko, in right field, and probably Frank Tcrre instead of Joe Adcock, at first base. Del Rice, a .500 hitter in the 1946 world series for the St. Louis Cardinals, will catch Buhl. The batting order will also suf fer a slight alteration. Wes Cov ington, the hitting star of the series up to now, with four safe ties in eight times at bat, has been moved from seventh to fifth, with Hazle batting sixth, Torre sev-enth and Rice eighth. Stengel said he would not decide on his third game lineup until after this afternoon's practice ses sion but he indicated one or two changes would be made. He was strongly considering playing Jerry Lumpe, his left handed hitting rookie, at third base and moving Tony Kubek back to left field. Otherwise the lineup will remain unchanged. ' Haney was still exultant today over his team's success yesterday in what he called "the most satis fying" game we've played all year. "Everybody was great. Burdette was simply marveolus. Covington not only hit well but made the best defensive play of the series so far. His catch on Bobby Shantz was the turning point of the game," Haney .said. BIG PRAISE The biggest praise, of course, was for Burdette, the fidgety, 30- year-old sidearmer from Nitro, W. Va., who throttled the Yankees on seven hits. A home run by Hank Bauer and a 15-foot dribble single by Jerry Coleman produced the only Yankee runs. Burdette's toughest inning, out side of those that saw New York score, waS the sixth when Mickey Mantle walked and Enos Slaugh ter sliced a one-out double to left; The rangy righthander, then made a fine play en Harry Simp son's roller toward third, getting: his man by a whisker and keeping the runner anchored. The runners remained stranded when Schoendienst threw out Kutek. Reno Evening Gazett Expensive Boat To Sahara Race LAS VEGAS, Nev., Oct. 4.

Pro Football lev Resumes This Weekend - By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There isn't too much chance of going wrong this weekend if you throw away the form charts in the National Professional Football League. Six of last week's losers play four of the winners and the way things went last Sunday the league standings could be bound pretty tight Sunday night. The boys are off to a flying start tonight when the New York Giants, the 1956 world champs, and the Chicago Bears, their title game opponents, both try to avenge first game losses. Cleveland plays Pittsburgh in the other Saturday night game. The Giants upset 6-3 by Cleveland in the last 21 seconds of their opening game, may have an easier time in helping the Philadelphia Eagles open their home season tonight. The -Eagles playing with mustaches now until they win a game lost a close one to Los Angeles, 17-13, and haven't won a game since Nov. 11, 1956, when they beat Pittsburgh 14-7. They played one tie 10-10 with San Francisco later during the 1956 season and lost all their exhibition games this year. The Bears were soundly mistreated by the league's sleeping giant, Green Bay, losing 21-17 last week. Tonight the Bears must cope with the Baltimore Colts, another "upstart." The Colts ran Detroit' right out of Baltimore's municipal stadium last week in a 34-14 romp, and then surprised by displaying a rock-like defense, supposedly their weak point. Pittsburgh and Cleveland, last week's winners, go at it in a battle of "young vs. old." The young are Coach Paul Brown's "new look" Cleveland aggregation, which still needed its elder statesman Lou Groza to help them knock off the Giants with two field goals, one a 47-yarder. Pittsburgh Coach Buddy Parker took over the Steelers and imme diately went shopping for as many veterans preferably those whom he had coached at Detroit. The deals paid off in the Steelers' 28-7 victory over Washington last week, helped by the play of newly acquired quarterback Earl Moral! On Sunday the so-called "also rans" get a chance to move, with everyone pretty evenly matched Detroit plays at Green Bay, and this one looms as the only "sure bet." The Packers showed they solidified themselves with their off season deals.

(Marie White photo) PLANE FORCED DOWN DILLON, Mont., Oct. 4. UP) A plane carrying six Montana Uni versity football players and mem bers of the coaching staff to Provo, Utah, for a Friday night game with Brigham Young, made an emergency landing Thursday on a dirt airstrip near this southeastern Montana town. Blackburn now finds himself rich in good quarterbacks and line depth. A fact that kept him up many nights during past season. Los Angeles and San Francisco have one of their two "rock 'n roll" sessions this year at 'Frisco. The rams rolled last week in fairly good fashion against the Eagles, while San Francisco was rocked by a surprising Chicago Cardinal team, 20-10. This sectional rivalry usually scoffs at the form chart. DEER CONTEST REGISTER FREE SPARKS 1 mpf UMb O I PLUS TAX I Mick Too Confident? Mantle's Errors w Yorker Asks for Change NEW YORK, Oct. 4. UP) Is Mickey Mantle getting too confident on fly balls hit to him in center field? It's not that the star New York Yankee outfielder misjudged Hank Aaron's drive into a triple in the second inning of yesterday's second game of the World Series. The fact is that it was the third time at Yankee stadium this season that it has happened to the "switcher." Aaron's drive, that was ruled a three-bagger, led to Milwaukee's first run in the Braves' 4-2 victory. Mickey appeared very confident as he backed up slowly, but the ball fell over his head. "It carried better than I thought," said Mickey afterwards. Ralph Dupas Case Continued Oct. 10 NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 4. UP) Civil District Judge Rene Viosca has continued until Oct. 10 the suit of boxer Ralph Dupas, who seeks a court order to require the city to give him a birth certificate showing he is white. The city contends the third-ranked lightweight boxer is of Negro ancestry and that the name of his parents was changed from Duplessis to Dupas when the family moved to New Orleans from nearby Plaquemines parish (county) after the boxer was born. if Y 6 v3! fits :m: I mi I iiiniiiriiiB-Miw-n r tmxmtmmamtmMamMmmmam.

KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY GLENM0RE DISTILLERIES CO., LOUISVILLE, Kurt Yanks; "I would have caught it. When he first hit it I thought I would catch it easy." Manager Casey Stengel agreed. "Mickey didn't handle it," he said. Only a few weeks ago, in the Sept. 20 Yankee-Red Sox night game at the stadium won by the Yanks 7-4, Mantle let a long fly by Dick Gernert get away from him in the ninth. It was Scored as a triple. But after the game Mantle said he should be charged with an error. 'The scorer made an unjust call on that fly ball that got away from me," he said. "I should have caught that ball with ease. It's not right to charge Whitey Ford (who had a shutout until the ninth) with a three-bagger." The scorer, Harold Rosenthal of the New York Herald-Tribune, who also is one of the three World Series scorers, changed his decision the next day, taking the hit away from Gernert and giving Mantle an error. Early in the season, on May 21, a fly ball by Jim Lemon of the Washington Senators glanced off Mantle's glove in the second inning of an 8-1 New York victory. It was ruled a triple, but Mickey said afterwards "all I want to say is that I made an error. The ball was in my glove and it got out." Yankee fans are hopeful that Mickey doesn't misjudge any flies in Milwaukee during the next three games of the World Series.

Even so, the coach says he has no intention of removing her from the squad. ) The player in question is 13-year-old Sharon Dickerson. Sharon, who weighs 90 pounds, is the only female squad member of the Norb Roll Sheriffs in the Otto Pee-Wee Football League. Mohr said several of the young sters introduced Sharon as a likely player. She played in several games (decked out in full football equipment) and Mohr didn't find out she was a girl until one of the boys who knew her let the secret out.

Busso, 23-year-old New York er, is a 2-1 favorite to mar Williams' debut as a fighter on television. Williams may have . the local audience in his corner, for he's a Washingtonian, but Busso will have a distinct advantage in experience and position. Busso is ranked ninth among 135-pound-ers, while Williams is just graduating from trie semifinal class and hasn't crashed the ratings...
