(AP)—Old Casey Stengel sits atop the baseball world today with a knowing wink and three straight world championships to show tor his liist three years as manager of tlie New York Yankees. You can bet your bottom dollar the grizzled skipper v.ill he back In 1D52 to complete his J05.000 phis contract. And probably 1953 and so on. Unless poor health dampens the fire of this old \vnihorse, he'll be back as long as they want him. Right now, that's probably forever. Klckoff tlriie ts 8 p.m. + The Papooses, Idied since Sept. 13 by game cancellations, will be after their second victory of the season. They have played only one game and in that one they whipped the Marked Tree Juniors 21-0 at Marked Tree. Illythevllle fans will .see a new Pancosc team tonight. They have a new coach and a new offense. Coach Stockton, offensive center for the University of Arkansas Ha- zorbacks last year, has installed the tricky spllt-T offense this year, replacing the Notre Dame box and tight T used hy the Paps for a number of years. The Paps boost a pair of fine ball-handling quarterbacks in Bobby Jones and Freddie Akers and their offensive attack is sparked by the hard niiinins of halfback Danny Edgmon and fuilback Kenneth Pi si ic r. Sammy Lum, a pint-sized young- .ster, furnishes the .s-pr-ed and deception from right halfback. The Paps this year arc a little arger in size than last year's squad. The forward wall is about the same weight but the backfiehl is larger. Working up front For the Pops tonight will IM; FM Rogers and Clarence Hall at the ends. Don Wori'cll and Jchn Fong at tackles, Max Peoples and Thomas Griffin at the guard posts and Danny Cobb at center. Jones is slated to get the starting call at quarterback with Akers sharing the duties with him. Coach Stockton has some good bench strength and is exijcct- ed to substitute freely in tonight's ame.

(AP)—Did the ringing double In his last line at bat toll Joe DiMaggio's farewell to baseball? Has the greatest iingle performer since Babe Ruth played his last big league game? Not cten Joe DiMaggio knows the answer. That was the first question on^ icarly everybody's tongue moments after Hank Bauer had made that final catch of the sixth World Series game which made the Nsw York Yankees world champions for the hlrd straight year.

(/!>)—Ez- 2ard Charles Is not on the comeback rail today after knocking out Rex jayne in the same ring where he ost his heavyweight title to Jersey Joe Walcott. Charles stopped the 23-year-old Salt Lake City. Utah, belter In 2:3J or the 11th round last night in an nterosting but unimpressive bout before n disappointing turnout, of 11,257 fans at Forbes Field. Charles weighed 188, heaviest of !s fighting career, and Layne 195Vi. The fight grossed S5D.763, including S25.000 for television rights. Temperatures in the low 50s kept down the attendance which promoters expected to reach 15,000. Heavier by six pounds than for his last title tight, the former champion was far ahead by points when n hard right to the chin in the nth dropped Layne for a nine count and the referee stopped it. acteristic toothy grin of his and said honestly: "Fellows. I Just don't know. I haven't been able to make up my mind." The reporters weren't the only ones to put the question to DiMag- His teammates were as an.x- lous as the writers to know. Some, who might have sensed that he may never be back at the Yankee Stadium, his baseball home for 16 years, took no chances. They had Joe autograph their bats, gloves, baseballs and photographs with suitable salutations on them. Several requested and received some of his pet bats. Tough Decision Undoubtedly, this is the toughest decision DiMaggio has had to make since he joined the Yankees back in 1936 as a wide-eyed, awe-struck and tight-lipped youngster of 21. Not even Del Webb, co-owner of the Yankees, has an idea of what DiMaggio will decide. While posin for pictures together, Webb turned to Joe and said: "Well Joe. I'm not going to praise you too much. We might have to talk about a contract for next year.' There have been rumors that DiMaggio may be asked to take a 25 SOOTH BEND, Incl.. Oct. 11. (If) percent cut from his $100,000 salary —For a team that is so young Coach Frank Leahy has been likened to a baby sitter, Notre Dame has cut its football teeth in a hurry. The little monsters of South Bend have been weaned on txvo lop-sided victories thus far, 48-6 over a good Indiana squad and 40-5 over Detroit. They expect to reach manhood against Southern Methodist Saturday. This nationally-televised game provides Leahy's romper-boys with their first real party of the season. Iti addition to millions of teleview- ers from coast-to-coast, a capacity crowd of 51.000 will jam Notre Dame Stiulium to see if that's fuzz or whiskers on the face of the Irish. SMU has worked up quite n sweat in progressing towards this meeting with Notre Dame, ranked fifth nationally in the Associated Press poll. The Mustangs lost 21-7 to Geor- iTia Tech, 7-0 to Ohio Slate, then, last week, came of nge with a 31-0 triumph over Missouri. They figure they are now ready to avenge defeats by the Irish of 20-14 in 1930 20-11 in 1930 and 27-20 in 1949. However. S.MU catches Notre Dame when it is jelling into a tcni.. of remarkable potential. Having never been pressed in their two victories, the Irish have been able to test, their entire squad to a point where Papa Leahy now knows what each lad can do. j Therefore, the experimentation ! phase is nearly closed and Leahy j can hand-pick his lineup with i added confidence. He suffered his poorest vcar this season, hitting at a low .263. His sub-normal batting, however did not affect his fielding and base- running. And there were days when he looked like the'old DiMaggio a the plate, too. Like in the fourtl world series game when he lashed a home run and two singles. "We couldn't have won withou him." shouted Manager Casey Sten gel for all to' hear. "And we neec him next year, too." One thing is certain. DIMaggi' hates to leave the game he loves sc much. He wants to keep on playin but only as a top-notcher. His pride won't allow him to plod along as a mediocre performer. DiMaggio knows he has slipped— but is not quite sure how much. That is what is worrying him and what makes him hesitate before making the final decision. Giants Offered $15,000 Bribe Mrs. Durocher Tells Of Letter to Leo; Her Life Threatened NEW YORK, Oct. 11. flTJ—An of. er of 815,000 if the ai.ints would manage to lose (.lie next three ;ames" was received in a letter by •.•Sanager Leo Durocher according to his actress wife, Laraine Day, The letter, written on stationery of the strand Hotel of Atlantic City. N .J.. and postmarked Oct. e, it Fresh Meadow, N. Y., on long island, also contained a threat, Miss Day said. It was turned over to Baseball Commissioner Ford Frlck before yesterday's final game of the world series at the Yankee Stadium, In which the Giants were beaten by ihe New York Yankees. "Leo's Immediate reaction was that the letter was the work ol a crank," Miss Day said. "But he worried all Tuesday night and I finally persuaded him to turn It over to Mr. Frcik." The letter began: "There's $15,000 for you and your team if you manage to lose th« next three games. If you are Interested call (a. Jamaica number was listed here). If you want to keep Laraine, better keep your mouth shut." The letter had been on Leo's desk several days along with other unopened correspondence. Durocher opened some of his mail Tuesday night and found the letter. The actress said Leo's chief worry was over the threat to herself and the possibility harm might coma to their six-year o!d adopted son Chris. 0 Longest single span of submarine cable in the world is 3.600 miles from Vancouver Island.
