Layne's Passing Perils Browns Again Sat., Oct. 18, 1958 tfA THE MINNEAPOLIS STAR EDITED BY BEFORE CHARLES JOHNSON entered the hospital this week for some important repair work, he wrote: "While it is true that the Yankees came from behind with a tremendous display of fighting and winning spirit, we can see no reason for retracting our statements to the effect that they were deteriorating. K "The better team did not win, but the earnest team did. Give all the credit to Casey Stengel. He did the finest job of managing wc have ever seen in this classic and our coverage of it goes back to 1926. , The Milwaukee Braves beat themselves this year. The Yankees will have to do a lot of trading and dealing this winter, not to win the pennant in the American league, but to-beat the National champs in 1959. .The 1958 series was a miscarriage of baseball justice." , Now let's see what the reaction was to Johnson's statement after the second game: "The Yankees aren't dead, but they are dying." A . , A Surprised Reader9 H. ZIVERIGMAN of Minneapolis asks for a withdrawal of statements concerning the Yankees: "I was quite surprised to read your article which told of a dynasty which had crumbled and deteriorated. As you no doubt know, the winning team of a World Series has to win four games. Yet, you already knew that the Braves had won. "1 have been a sports fan for many years and I think that any team that plays in a World Series is great, otherwise they would not be there. I would appreciate it if you would withdraw your statements of this article and in the future be careful how you pick 'em." A r x Criticizes Reporting LAWRENCE 'NELSON had the following reactions: "I thought your World Series reporting was about as 'bush' a piece of writing as I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of yours. "After the second game: 'Bauer is through (sounds silly, doesn't it?) . . Berra can't see . . . Yankees are pathetic . . . dynasty collapsing, etc' "Before the fifth game: 'It may be all over today, it is just as well.' What kind of a stupid statement is that? A lot of fellas I talked to feel the same way. A guy next to me wondered, 'I wonder if Johnson will finally break down and eat crow?' I doubt it. Rather your final word on the Series will probably be, 'We said, remember, that the Braves haven't got the pitching . . .'or some such trash." r ft 'A Loyal Yankee Fan9 JIM HARRINGTON of Minneapolis rises to the defense of the Yankees: "Who says the Yankees are dead? It didn't look that way to me when they smeared the Braves three games straight. You should know by now that the Nw York Yankees are invincible. I remain a loyal Yankee fan." ft 'Braves Will Deteriorate9 LARRY HALPERN of Minneapolis makes a prediction "Now that the New York Yankees have taken the World Series, I wish to recall some of the things said about the Yankees by Charles Johnson in the Oct. 3 Star: "1. 'Right fielder Hank Bauer, the tough luck veteran of this series so far, is losing his class, both as an outfielder and as a spark plug hitter, even though he has hit safely in 16 straight series.' I ask him, Charles Johnson, what Bauer did in this series. True, his hitting streak ended but he continued to hit very well and was a spark plug hitter that got the Yankees going. Surely, this is a very prejudiced opinion. "2. Charles Johnson mentioned the 'lack of spirit' in the Yankees and that they looked like they were playing dead ball. The Yankees are a clutch team. When a hit is needed, a Yankee will come through. It means a lot to be a Yankee and there will alwavs be that Yankee spirit. "3. This writer also mentioned the fact that Yogi Berra looked awful. Although Berra doesn't hit for a high average, he is one of the most feared players in the clutch and with men on base. He holds the World Series record for the most total bases and the most hits. 'The Yankees will be around for this annual classic a lot longer than the Braves. Everyone is getting old, even the Braves. The Braves will deteriorate a lot faster than the Yankees." ft 'One of Greatest .B. W. JOYCE. JR.. of Minneapolis savs an apology is in order: "If there has ever been an occasion when a newspaper with as large a circulation as the' Minneapolis Star and Tribune owes a public apology to its readers, it is now. "I have never read a sports column in my life, especially one written by an editor, that has been so biased as you during the current World Series, which has just ended. The way you jumped on the Braves' bandwagon when the Yankees were down the first two games and belittled practically every Yankee player should make you wondty today how you ever could have written such articles. Then, when the Yankees were down 3-1 you really had them falling apart fast. The way you criticized Bauer, Mantle, Berra and the Yankee pitching staff was about as unjust as anything I have ever read. "I have never been a Yankee fan and I believe, as others do, that nothing could do more for baseball than to have some other team win the American league pennant, but I also learned long ago to give credit where credit is due and I believe the Yankees deserve that. "No, Mr. Johnson, instead of the Yankees deteriorating and collapsing as you printed, I believe they proved themselves to be one of the greatest Yankee teams that ever participated in a World Series." ft ft Asks for Explanation EARL STUHR of Maple Lake, Minn., brings up this point: "In ending your writeup after the final game of the World Strics you stated: 'It was a pretty sad finish for a team that should have won it in no more than five games.' "The team you meant, of course, was Milwaukee. According to that, they should have won the game on Monday which the Yankees won 7-0. Could you explain to me how they should have won that game?" COMMENT: Milwaukee should have won the game Saturday in a key play in the fifth inning. Million Dollars Missing CHARLES FLOYD of Pierre, S. D.. wonders what happened to the World Series receipts: "What becomes of the nearly million dollars you don't account for in this tabulation?

For brevity, the official announcement didn't itemize the amount each league and each club received. That makes up the difference. A ' T A Washburn 'Monopoly?9 R. F. HOLMBOE of Minneapolis complains about too much Wayiburn Friday night prep football games at the Parade: "In regards to our city high school football program, I feel it is great injustice to all of our boys, except the ones on the Washburn team which seem to be monopolizing the Parade stadium night games. "If we are looking at this situation from a money angle, thon we should have all games played at night. Therefore, allowing all the parents and friends of the players a chance to see them under the lights. "If wc are looking at this for the sportsmanship and morale of our young boys, why not split the games evenly1" Grid Summaries HO'NS Mil f NDS MtV.cko. l-rk TICKLES N'trvole Bsn C-UATji Rob "son, $ch'oor.

It also means you do the bulk of your quarterbacking against an entirely different set of home-and-home opponents, the Cleveland Browns among them if you call the signals for an eastern team like the Steelers. THAT should suit Layne just fine. The blond Texan has never called a losing regular season game against the Browns. With Layne at quarterback, the Lions won regular season games from the Browns in 1952 '54 and '57. In the '52, '53 and '54 title games L a y n e - led teams topped the Browns 2-1. captain at the end of last season," Yngve continued, "he made up hi? mind that his team wouldn't stop at anything short of a top spot. He has great spirit and determination and both of those qualities have been injected into our whole team throughout the season.

P The boom fell quickly on Del City in a high school football game with nearby Norman Friday night. Norman returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. On Del City's first series of plays, Norman quarter-terback Jay Wilkinson, son of University of Oklahoma Coach Bud Wilkinson, intercepted a pass and ran it back 38 yards for a touchdown. Norman kicked off and Del City had to punt. Wilkinson ran it back 40 yards to give Norman a 21-0 lead with four minutes gone and before Norman ran a single play from scrimmage. Norman won 35-8. ing lettermen on the squad. They were himself and Dale Tjosvold. "Don't forget Jim Day and Max Volkmann, our first two to finish in the city meet, are first year men in cross country," concluded Roosevelt's cherished Oscar. Well done and well spoken.

The clubs are both 2-1. The 49ers are 1-2, and the Lions and Packers both 0-2-1. IN THE ESAT, the. Giants are favored by seven points to whip the Cards. But the Giants will see something new in the Card attack which made it hot for the Browns last week. Coach Pop Ivy installed a "lonesome fullback" formation with rookie quarterback M. C. Reynolds directly under center, both ends split about eight yards, two halfbacks in one split and the fullback in the other. It seems a more apt tag would have been the "lonesome quarterback." The Redskins get the nod by six over the Packers who have shown little, aside from Top, game of the football season is scheduled tonight in the St. Paul conference with two undefeated teams, Harding and Humboldt, meeting . . . Harding has one tie while Humboldt has now won five straight in the city conference . . .

They are Gary Anderson, Al Collier, Steve Rankel and Dave Kern . . . contest j ized the Gustie 0ffense into one of the most devastating attacks state college football has ever seen. Deutz does his damage on the ground, on end sweeps or off-tackle power plays. Both coaches, Lloyd Hol-lingsworth of Gustavus and John Gagliardi of St. John's, hinted they may come up with something new in the way of offensive patterns. For St. John's, this could take the form of more passing, especially by quarterback Bob Ilg. A crowd of between 5,000 and 6,000, one of the largest ever to watch a Gustavus game at St. Peter, is expected. IN OTHER games tonight in the MIAC, Augsburg is at Hamline, St. Thomas at Duluth Branch and Concordia at Macalester. Mankato State can wrap ! up the Northern States cham pionship with a victory over Winona tonight in their game at Winona. Bemidji State is at Moorhead and Wartburg at St. Cloud in a non-conference game.

The Question Mart U by HAI.SEY HALL TheQuenlion Mart today becomes a weekly feature in the Star's sports section. If you have a question on sports, send it along and we'll do our best. Only t sport qifestions of current activities uill be answered by phone, W. L. HUME of Sanborn, Minn., asks what is the ruling if a home batsman clouts one out of .the park in the last inning with the score tied and two men on base. What's the score? A Three runs count IF all runners, including the batsman, touch all bases. If, for instance, the batter quit running at first and headed for the clubhouse he would get credit for only a single. This dovetails in 'with a question from Ted LaVoie of Brainerd, Minn. He puts men on first and second, two out and the hitter knocks one out of the park. The man on second neglects to touch third, the team in the field takes a new ball, touches third and appeals to the umpire. The runner is out and, since it technically is a FORCE play, no runs score. . ' ' NORBERT GROSSMAN of Gibbon, Minn., wants to know how much Paul Giel of the Gophers received for signing with the Giants. A He received around $60,000. To Arvid J. Anderson, 626 S. 9th St. A team may make a return kick on a kickoff. Speaking of return kicks, I often have wondered how few times they are - attempted. Haven't seen one in ages. Always nice to hear from the ladies. Mrs. J. R. Dunn, 5408 S. Oliver Av asks at "what percentage each baseball player is, valued?" She assumes the pitcher is valued the highest. And she is correct. Connie Mack once called pitching 75 per cent of a club's strength. However, in salaries, the pitchers are not top dogs. They are "collective" and their strength is in quantity as well as quality. Highest priced stars always have been men who played every day. E. Hensler of Henderson asks how the money taken in at the World Series is disposed of. A Fifteen per cent of all games is paid to the commissioner's office. Sixty per cent of the balance for the FIRST FOUR GAMES is apportioned to the first four .finishers in each league. Seventy per cent of this is for the Series teams, divided 60-40. The remaining 30 per cent is divided on a downward scale among the second, third and fourth teams in each circuit. After this 15 and 60 per cent are taken care of, the balance is equally divided between the two clubs and their respective leagues.
