Hew Batting And Home Run Champions Seen In Majors NEW YORK, Sept. 13 W With tee major league baseball season on the verge of becoming history, few, If any, of 1953's offensive leaders are likely to hit the top again. Most conspicuous by his absence will be Brooklyn's Roy Campa- cella. Last year's National League Most Valuable player, a distinction he also won in 1951, Roy was the leader in Tuns batted in with 142. He set an all-time major league record for catchers in this department, pounded out 41 home runs and had a lusty .312 batitng average. But a hand operation in May ruined his effectiveness this year and the once mighty slugger is finding it difficult keeping his aver age above a kittenish .200. His value to the Dodgers is amply re flected in Brooklyn s dive in the standings. Cleveland's Al Rosen, the American League's 1953 Most Valuable Player, seemed well on the way to repeating until a slow-mending finger Injury in June scuttled his chances. Last year Rosen swept through the league at a .336 clip, second only to Washington's Mickey . Vernon with .337. Rosen blasted 43 home runs and chased across 145 to lead in both departments. - in spite or nis injury, ne sun Giants wieias a poieni Dai. tie is covering round the .300 mark and his clutch hits have helped keep Cleveland on top of the heap. New batting champions will be crowned on the thrones vacated by Vernon and Brooklyn's Carl Furillo, 1 who led the . National League with .344. The .current race for the title in the senior circuit Is a melee among Duke Snider of Brooklyn, Willie Mays of New York and the perennial Stan Musial of the Cardinals. Any one is liable to Wind up with the prize. i The Junior circuit sees Cleve land's Bobbv Avila and the re cently slumping Irv Noren of the Yankees fighting n out. Th roveted home run title Will also go to new aspirants. It would take a miraculous siretcn une hv last vear's leaders. Milwaukee's Eddie Mathews who had 47. and Rosen to overtake the current leaders. Ted Kluszewski has recently spurted ahead of Mays who led for most of the season. Larry Doby of Cleveland is setting the pace In the American jeague. Both Mathews and Rosen are all but out" of the running. The runs batted in title Is also un for grabs with Kluszewski, Musial, Snider and Gil Hodges of Brooklyn leading the National League and Doby. Jaclcie Jensen, Boston and Yogi Berra, New York the American. Of last year's leaders in a major department, only Harvey Kuenn, Detroit's star sophomore short stop has an outside chance of re peating. Kuenn, who incidentally, was named Rookie Of The Year, led in hita with 209. This year. Chicago's Nellie Fox is leading with Kuenn second. Richie Ashburn of the Phillies, who led the National League with 205 hits is well out of the running. He is far back: of the leaders. Snider and Don Mueller of the JOHNS' OTHER LIFE Levi "Chuck" Johns, one of Louisiana State's best bets to win a starting halfback slot this season, entered collegiate gridiron competition as a quarterback. Switched to the midway post early last year, he showed coaches the wisdom of the conversion by ending the season as fourth ranking in total offense. The one-letter Rayville. La, Junior is the type of fast, break-away runner that thrills coaches. AnneGookin On Staff Of Hinds Junior RAYMOND.

Dupas Beaten By Frank Ryff BROOKLYN, Sept. 13 MV-Frank- ie Ryff, unbeaten but unranked New York lightweight, used a solid left hook and a crashing, headlong style to win a unanimous decision over Ralph Dupas, 18. New Or leans schoolboy, tonight in an eight-round bout at Eastern Park way Arena. Ryff weighed 139 yit Dupas 137 s pounds. Dupas' darting left wasn't enough to hold off Ryff who always moved ahead, overpowering the No. 2 lightweight contender at close range.

Luckman was in Jackson yesterday and spoke to the TD club and the Rotary club. that the professional teams have 15 to 18 coaches over the entire country checking the college star? for future use in professional ranks. Luckman was also quite elaborate in the 'praises for Mississippi Snider And Avila Continue To Lead Majors In Hitting NEW YORK, Sept. 13 MV-Willie Mays, the hustling New York Giants outfielder, who is swinging for base hits instead of home runs, is only one point behind Brooklyn's Duke Snider in the competition for the National League batting title. Mays collected two hits in the Giants 1-0 victory over the St. Louis Cards today to bring his average to .341. Snider and the Dodg ers were idle and Duke's mark re mained at .342. Willie has not hit a homer since he walloped No. 39 on Aug. 29 and has only three since July 28, when he threatened Babe Ruth s all-time mark. Over-all, in last week's games, Snider dropped 7 points with only 5 hits in 25 tries. Mays lost a single point with eight safeties in 25 at bats. In the American League, Bobby Avila, sparking Cleveland's front-running Indians, increased his lead with a three-point gain to .340 while his closest competitors were slumping.

He is hitting .335. despite a 3-point loss on 6 hits in 23 at bats. Don Mueller of the Giants and Cincinnati's Ted Kluszewski are deadlocked for fourth at .332. Mueller gained one point and Ted two. luuszewsKi is the circuit's leader in home rung with 48 and in runs bated in with 132. Nellie Fox of the White Sox held onto fourth place in the American League bating race. He moved up one point to .322. The Yankees' Yogi Berra is fifth with .310. Berra took over the runs-batted- in lead from Cleveland's Larry Doby, 115-114. But the Cleveland outfielder maintained his home run edge with 30. Boston's Ted Williams finds his chances for a fifth American League batting crown diminishing rapidly. He has slumped 18 points since Labor Day and shows a .341 average with 343 at bats.

Principal Mills. The boys play football, baseball and basketball. Their good sportsmanship has become a by - word. They indulge in no arguments, wrangling and questioning of officials' decisions.

The game will be played at the Whippets new athletic field at 7:30 p. m. Thursday. We hope to have another crowd as big as that at Friday night's opening game," said Coach Pop Awarner. players who are now in professional football.

Utica Drops One To Redwood Team UTICA, Sept, 13 An inexperienced but game eleven from Utica bowed to the Rocketts of Redwood Friday night by the score of 18-12. The two teams were about equally matched on the ground, but the defense cf the Waves was no match to the .rm of Porter, who made the difference for the Rocketts. The Utica boys took advantage of a Redwood fumble early in the first period and just seven plays after Hines covered ttie ball, Brown hit the line for the score. The try for extra was not good. Redwood scored in the second quarter after Porter heaved to Tin ning and Hedrick hit the line. Again in the third peribd Porter passed, this tim to Oakes, who made the tally. Late in the third period Por ter passed again to Tinning and then hit the line on a Quarterback sneak for the score. All trys for point after were no good. In the fourth period Utica got going again and after a series of line bucks. Brown lugged it across for the score. Again the try for extra point was no good. As the game ended the Utica boys were again on the march. J Both teams showed lots of drive and will be serious competition to all comers this year.

Hinds Points Toward Tilt With Rangers RAYMOND, Sept. 13 The Hinds Junior College Eagles went back- to work this week to prepare for Northwest Junior College's Rangers here Saturday night, September 18, after one of the most spectacular opening games in history. In their first game of the season the Eagles romped to a 32-0 victory over Pearl River Junior College for one of the biggest upsets of the year just beginning. -ean Kiver, co-champions with Hinds Junior College the past two years, was rated as the "team to beat" in a pre-season poll of coaches, with Hinds a close second for top honors. On the basis of pre-game data, the fight last Saturday was expected to be a close one with possibilities of another 14-14 tie as had been the case last season. However, the Eagles got off to a roaring start on the ODenine kick. off, carrying the ball down the field in a series of ground plays straight to a touchdown. In the first quarter they ran ud a 19-0 score before the wildcats rallied. The second quarter was scoreless, but the Eagles came through again in the third and fourth quarters to push over a tally in each period. Spectators jammed Eagle Stadium to overflow capacity to see the battle, plus a sparkling show by the Hinds Hi-Steppers and Eagle Band which evoked cheers and applause from the fans. The Eagles' victory was a result of smooth cooperation between line and backfield, aided by the long- range punting of Olin Renfroe, halfback, which kept the Wildcats buried deep in their own territory throughout most of the game. Stand-outs in the line include Don Scully, Rudie Soileau, Lawrence Meadows, George Stough, John Vecchio, and Durwood Graham. In the backfield the Hinds stars were Charles Nourrcier, Minor Hines, Gordon King, and Renfroe. After the game this past weekend, this week's workouts will stress conditioning work as the chief item, along with offensive drills, both ground and air.
