Twelve THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Sunday Morning, September 7,1952. SP THE TLIGHT LHS, Immaculate Grid Squads Into Practice Sessions Pioneers Have Only Trio of Letter Winners By GIL SMITH Leavenworth Times Sports Editor Horse racing, track and field, md golf records seem to possess .10 ultimate. Here's a local golf mark which may, or may not, stand for some time. Approximately a month ago, Carl Sedlock, Leavenworth Country Club's pro, accomplished a sizzling U-under-par 62 over his home layout to establish a new course record. Last weekend Derwin Anderson, .one of Country Club's top-flight younger linksmen bettered the former record by one stroke when he toured the course in an amazing 29-32—61 combination for the first and second nine. Young Anderson, son of Dr. and Mrs. J. T. Anderson, 519 Marshall,' with small favor from Lady Luck,| would have posted an "outland-k ish" score of 58, because he mis-; sed a 4-foot putt on the final hole,' and had one ball out of bounds for a two-stroke penalty. | Witnesses to Anderson's super rounds, either first or second nines, were the following golfers: Ed Shalkoski, Fr. Mack Leabo, Dale Sharp and, Chet Mobrehead. Shalkoski claims to be a "magnet" for record rounds at Leavenworth Country Club. Ed also was a member of the participating parties when Sedlock posted the 62 score. By GIL SMITH Leavenworth Times Sports Editor King Football made his advent in Leavenworth last week with issuing of uniforms and equipment to the 1952 squads representing Leavenworth and Iirunaculata High Schools. At the latter school a new coach, Don Ritchie, St. Louis McBride High School and Kansas City Rockhurst College graduate, takes over the Raiders. Ritchie succeeds Ken Bueltel as football, basketball and track mentor at Immaculata, after the latter resigned last spring to accept "IT'LL BE ROUGH IF YOU DON'T WATCH OUT"— Coach Leonard Hofstra, second from left, pointing, tells the advance guard of his 1952 Leavenworth High School football Pioneers what he expects of them for the coming campaign. Approximately 40 boys composed the LHS squad for the first week of practice drills at Abeles Field. The squad is expected to be increased to at least 60 by early this week. The Pioneers open against Washington (Bethel) here Friday night, September 19, and close the 1952 season with the traditional contest with Atchison's Redmen here' Friday night, November 14. Extreme left in picture is Assistant Coach Charlie Kimerer, and to Coach Hofstra's left is Line Coach Asa Eagles.

Only a comparatively small squad met with the new coach for last week's practice drills at Knights of Columbus Park, but a normal squad for Immaculata — approximately 30 boys — is expected to. report for the sessions starting tomorrow afternoon. Athletic Director Ed McGlinn has arranged a 7-game schedule with the opener at Weston, Mo., carded Friday night, September 26. The Raiders have an open date November 2. This date, however, jis expected to be filled in the near future. The Raiders again are to oppose, Friday last, the Associated other than Weston; Maur Hill Press released its annual poll of](Atchison), Effingham, St. Agnes (homecoming), and Kansas City Hogan, while two new schools, Kansas City Manual and Tonganoxie make their appearance on the Raider card.

Out at Abeles Field, Coach Leonard Hofstra and Assistants Asa ers again are the top choice, with!Eagles and Charlie Kimerer, have arguments to be furnished by none:been working with an "advance guard" squad composed of approximately 40 boys. Tomorrow Coach Hofstra will call a meeting for sophomores and transfer students. Candidates from this group are expected to boost the squad to at least 60 in number, and the coach expects to have approximately 75 boys, late corn- other than KU's Jayhawks and Colorado's Buffaloes. Out on the West Coast, where the pickings have been thin for national championship teams and contenders since advent of World War H, UCLA and Washington State rate the nod over California (No. 8 nationally by AP), with Southern California's Trojans in the "darkhorse" role. Most recent issue of the Sateve- post contained its annual "Pigskin Preview" story, which follows in part: The Saturday Evening Post's 13th annual "Pigskin Preview" lists three Missouri Valley teams —Oklahoma, Kansas and Tulsa — among the Nation's 20 leading college elevens for the coming season. They are selected by veteran sports writer Fred Russell in the current (September 6th) isssue of the magazine, where he also picks a 1952 all-American, featuring Billy Vessels, Oklahoma backfield ace. and outlines some notable changes which will be witnessed in the collegiate gridiron sport this season. Maryland is selected as the top college team in the country, followed bv Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Illinois. Oklahoma. California, Texas, Tennessee, Wisconsin, U.C.L.A., Rice. Notre Dame, T.C. U.. Holy Cross, Kansas, Princeton, Tulsa. Pennsvlvania, Washington State and Virginia, in that order. Russell says that with Vesssels , again operating on a sound knee. Oklahoma, which has won five straight championships, should again capture the Big Seven title. Kansas, with one of the top backfields in the country, is picked as runner-up. Tulsa's overpowering team is seen as the Missouri Valley Conference champion, while Colorado, Kansas State, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa State, and Drake are called above-average teams. The all-American team's ends are McPhee (Princeton) and Babcock (Georgia); tackles, Modzelewski (Maryland) and Atkins (Tennessee); guards. Kush (Michigan State) and Athey (Baylor); center. Mopmaw (U.C.L.A.); backs. Giel (Minnesota). Lattner (Notre Dame) Olszewski (California) and Vessels. Russsel! foresees more high-scoring and wide-open games than ever before, increasing the chances for upsets. He says the limitation on spring training — eliminated • entirely by the Ivy League and some others — will contribute to the greater point production since the defense platoon will be put behind offense and the latter will reach an all-time peak in variations with sheer brawn continuing to give way to subtlety in wider usage oi the split-T. The Pioneers, usually a.first-di- vision club in the very potent Northeast Kansas league, this sea son will come in with but three lettermen, none of whom were starters last season on the club which compiled a 4-5 won-lost record, and during the first month of the season rated a place in t h e state's Top Ten. The trio of lettermen, who no doubt, will form the nucleus of the 1952 eleven are Bob Schies, tackle; Jim Powell, back; and Alfred Dunlap, end. Thus it may be seen that underclassmen, particularly sophomores and juniors, will compose the greater part of this year's first team. How well they perform, no doubt, will make for the season's record, starting with the opener Washington (Bethel) here Friday night, September 19, and the traditional finale with Atchison here, Friday night, November 14.

Four Dodger errors helped the Giants pick up three unearned runs, enough to win the o'pener.

NEW YORK, Sept. 6 (91 — Recruiting and subsidization, of athletes . are the main evils in college sports in the opinion of an overwhelming • majority of sports writers and sportscasters. And banning football spring practice and post - season bowl games are not steps in the right direction,. according to, three quarters of those who participated in an Associated Press poll on the controversial subject.

Leavenworth's VFW baseball Indians tonight at Wadsworth Park are to entertain the . strong Holden, Mo., Chiefs in the first of four successsive Sunday games which will close out the 1952 season for the locals of Manager Carl Wilk. The contest, expected to attract a large crowd, is to get under way at 8:15 o'clock. On the mound tonight for the visitors is expected to be Lefty Jack Pickett, who in a Labor Day game threw a 4-hit shutout, blanking Grandview, Mo., 4-0. Grandview, in a game at Wadsworth Park last week, edged past VFW, 3-2 on the 4-hit hurling of Right- Brooklyn's jittery Dodgers to the cleaners twice today, 6-4, and 7-3, and reduced the Brooks' National League lead to four games. A crowd of 49,011 fans saw the "I believe the college president** program frowning on post-season bowl games and spring practice is a step in the right direction." '• "No,"' was the answer of 157 of the 202 participants. The comment of Sec Taylor, veteran sports editor of the Des Moines Register and Tribune and outgoing president of the National Football Writers Association, just j about summed up the opinion ot the -majority. . "Bowl games and spring practice are simply side issues," said Taylor. "So far as I've been abl« to ascertain, few presidents" want to eliminate either. It is recruiting, subsidizing, pressure to win at any cost, and interference with coaches, players and faculty by townspeople that are worrying the presidents most — and of course, the gambling." Actually, just about every one of the 202 participants put the finger on recruiting and subsidization.

De-emphasis is one thing; killing •he game is something else," said Dan Hardesty of the Baton Rouge (La.) State Times. "Let the presidents be sure all athletes do prop* er academic work like other students and they will have done some good in something which * their business." Harry Keck, sports editor of the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph, who re» plied in the affirmative, said: "Too much deceit still exists.

In other day games the Boston Red Sox snapped their seven- ;ame losing streak by sweeping a doubleheader from Philadelphia, 6-4 and 10-2. Chicago shaded Detroit, 4-3, in 11 innings and Cincinnati edged Chicago, 3-2. The Giants made the most of four errors to beat the Dodgers in the first game. They clinched the decision in the sixth inning when Dodger shortstop Pee Wee Reese permitted Monte Irvih's two-out grounder to skip through his legs for a two-run error. Brooklyn also had a tough time on the base paths. In the second inning an attempted s bases-loadec squeeze play resulted in an inning- ending double play. -Then, in the sixth, Jackie Robinson was picked off base to quell a promising rally. Rookie Bill Connelly started and gained credit for his fourth victory without a loss. He blanked the Dodgers for five innings but was lifted in favor of Hoyt Wilhelm in the sixth. Wilhelm, making his 59th appearance, lasted until the eighth when he was clipped for two runs. Al Corwin took over with two on and one out and got out oi the jam. Corwin ran into trouble in the ninth as the Dodgers scored once and placed runners on second and third with none out. But Robinson lined into a doubleplay and Roy Campanella struck out to end the game. Big Jim Hearn disposed of the Dodgers with little difficulty in the second game. Hearn, completing' and winning his first game since Aug. 1, checked the Dodgers on four hits in besting little Johnny Rutherford. Hearn also helped his own cause by cracking his third homer of the season in the fourth inning.
