******** m********0m**mmmm Sport Parade Looks Liko Lopoi Will Novo Lost Lough On All Doubters ****m0***>**it*******************^ By OSCAR FRALEV NEW YORK (UPI)-The SpahishJ too, have a word for it-and In the case of Senor Alfonso Ramon Lope* of the Chicago White Sox it is "risa." Which means the last laugh. And which, It becomes more apparent each succeeding day, the quiet man of Castalian parents is going to have on the doubting American League this season. . Because not too long ago they were- predicting the axe for the good senor even if he was lucky enough to finish second —once again. Score Gets Starting Chance Against KayCee A's Tonight Lopez, it was said, was on his way out. And, they shrugged, what could any man do with such a rag-tag band of hitless, aging misfits? Senor Al's records as a catcher are dimmed by a decade of riding the managerial bench as well as by his reputation as a perennial second place finisher. Oh, he had the catching records and still does, having caught more games than any other man, a total of 1,918 in 18 years. But his 11 years as a manager, eight of them in the majors, put his playing career in the shade. Because in nine of those 11 years, Neale Fraser Easy Winner Over MacKay FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (UP1)- Neale Fraser of Australia, who won the Davis Cup for his country with an easy conquest of big Barry MacKay, emerged today as the favorite for the National Singles tennis championships which •tart Friday. Fraser needed only tw o sets Monday to take the cup back to Australia, adding them to the set he had won Sunday evening for an 8-6, 3-6, (5-2, 6-4 victory over MacKay. It gave the Aussies the deciding point in a 3-2 triumph over the United States. "This will be known as 'Fraser's Davis Cup' ", said the non- playing Aussie captain, Harry Hopman. "He won both his singles and shared in the doubles. You can't do any better." Fraser, at 25 a veteran of seven years of international tennis, slowed his service somewhat from his Sunday pace and gained in accuracy. MacKay, a 6-3, 185-pound- er, relied as usual on his power game and his big serve failed him. The Dayton, Ohio, slugger was broken twice in Monday's first set, as he contributed three double faults in the first break and two in the other. He was broken again in the 10th game of the last set, and again hurt himself with a double fault. "Fraser played as never before," said Hopman. "But I still would not say he is now the world's best. Alex Olmedo, playing as he did at Wimbledon, must be considered. I would say they are 50-50. The Nationals should show which is the better man." Most of the experts who watched the cup play felt that Fraser should be a clear favorite for the Nationals. Olmedo was unimpressive and far off his Wimbledon form. 1 pez-managed teams have finished second nine times. There was one pennant and even that ended in World Series disaster as his Cleveland Indians were shutout by the 1954 Giants. Two years later, after two more second place finishes, Lopez walked out of Cleveland without a single dissenting murmur from then General Manager Hank Greenberg. "There was a feeling I should have done better," he explained. "The tension was terrific." But the lure was too great and by the next season he was with Chicago — for another pair of second place finishes. Provoking the talk this season that another runnerup spot, if 1 he was that lucky, still would mean his demise. Yet the good senor currently is proving that "nice guys", don't have to finish last. Lopez, whose parents emigrated from Madrid to his native Tampa, Fla., handles his players "like human beings and adults." There are no pep talks and no public dressings down. "I treat them as I always wanted to be treated," he shrugs. "Pep talks may be all right in football, where you have to get your team 'up' for a few games. But over the long baseball season it is better if they are relaxed. And, after all, they are adults and, even when I think they make a mistake, I like to hear their reasoning. Maybe they're right and I'm wrong." The payoff usually has been maximum production with a minimum of talent. f§ CLEVELAND (UPI) - Hard?! luck Herb Score, knocked out of '$ regular pitching rotation because \f s of wildness, hopes that the invad- | ing Kansas City Athletics turn out M| to be his "cure." ?f| The hard - throwing southpaw, : j who virtually missed two consec- || utive seasons because of injuries, •j| toes the mound tonight as the A ! runnerup Tribesmen begin what f * appears to be a futile chase of •t': Chicago.

(UPI) - A "jelling" Cleveland Brown squad, still searching for its first win of the . exhibition season, was sent Young Belts 3 Homers For Clover Leaf Henry Young not only hurled four-hit ball, but laced out three straight roundtrippers to lead Clover Leaf Dairy to a 7-1 victory over PTA in Perkins Little Lea- ue action Monday. The Clover Leaf hurler struck out 12 and walked two, while driving in six runs with his trio of circuit blasts. Tom Buckingham and Dave Shadle each had two bingles as Clover Leaf posted its eight win win in 13 games. Ervin Davis was tagged with the defeat, striking out eight and walking one. Davis, Jim Staley, Huey Harper and Ron Adams each collected one hit for PTA who are now 5-7 on the season ! as the end of the line is rapidly approaching. through its paces today in preparation for a final fling on the West Coast Coach Paul Brown, whose squad has dropped three in a row, said he saw evidence of "jelling" despite the 17-14 loss to San Francisco Sunday. The Browns gave flashes of their old scoring punch in the last them to a thrilling finish If he regains his winning habit. The bullet-tossing Score was relegated to the obscurity of the bull pen at the outset of August after dropping five in a row, the chief reason being his inability to get the ball over the plate. And aa Score went, so did the Indians. Before his troubles began the Redskins sat in the top spot, but once his miseries started, they dropped out and have been runnersup for more than a month now. Score's best game of this season was turned in against the seventh place Athletics on July 3rd when he fanned 13 as the Red skins thumped out an 8-4 victory. He has a 9-10 record to date Since then, however, everything has gone sour for the flasy left hander who broke into the 20 game circle in '56 — his second in the American League. Two Starts In Month Since July 27th Score has pitched only six innings in two starts. He appeared in five games in .57, racking up a 2-1 mark, before being knocked out for the remainder of the campaign after he was struck in the eye by a liner in a game against New York. Last year he had arm miseries, recording a 2-3 record, while appearing in 12 games. Despite these two "lost seasons" NATIONAL LIA6UI OWL.

Brown had been grooming Jim Ninowski for that job, but the former Michigan State long-tosser, who looked extremely sharp in practice, just couldn't produce under fire. Brown was also pleased with the fine performance turned in by the defensive unit, which hobbled the passing attempts of veteran 49er Y.A. Tittle. He indicated that Bob Gain will remain at end with Willie McClung and Sid Youngelman as regular defensive tackles. •Ex-Ohio State star, Dick Scha- frath, who had a rough time at the other end slot, is slated to get another shot, but veteran Paul Wiggin, recovered from a shoulder separation, will start.

(UPI) — Trevor Rees greeted a squad of 55, including 17 lettermen, today as he began his 14th season as head football coach at Kent State University. Pro Grid Notes United Press International San Francisco Forty - Niners Coach Red Hickey vehemently denied reports today that defensive back Dick Moegle, a second team all-league selection last sea son, was on the trading block. Hickey pointed out that Moegle was a key player who could be used on either the defensive or offensive units. Moegle has played well as an offensive back, a position he was switched to after rookies Ed Dove and Dave Baker took over his defensive duties. * * « MEANWHILE, the Green Bay Packers, the surprise team of the National Football League exhibition season, looked forward to the arrival of defensive halfback Bobby Dillon, who has changed his mind again about retiring.
