Off. By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Mighty Casey prevailed! Boiled down and stripped of all the sugar coating, that's exactly what was meant when the Mets finally announced Tuesday that the chipper 75-year-old Stengel will be back as their manager next year. At first, Donald Grant, the Mets' board chairman, neatly side-steppeTl all questions as to whether any other managerial candidates had been sounded «*ut. Still another board member said he preferred "not to comment" on whether there had Tjeen any internal conflict among the club's stockholders About rehiring Stengel. Others Mentioned Later, and only under persistent questioning, Grant admitted there had been some discussion with one or two other "avail- ables" just in case "Casey decided to retire." Actually, Stengel never even considered it, a fact borne out by his statement that he intends "to stay in baseball as long as my health is good." His health rigM now appears to be perfect and his voice was equally good during Tuesday's Hollywood-styled kleigh -lighted press conference. Stengel smoothly fielded all questions flung at him although he did show some irritation at a few he obviously considered too personal. "Were you surprised at being rehired?" asked one television man. "I wasn 't but I think you were," Casey snapped back in some heat. "You don 't know my business." Becomes Upset ' Then when a radio man started a question with, "you did have a lot of buzzards on your back..." Stengel never let him finish, thrusting his face right into his questioner's and cutting him short with "don 't worry about those buzzards, maybe you 're one of 'em!" Everyone laughed and the radio man told Casey "I'm a Stengel fan," at which point the Met manager mellowed considerably and said, "then you're okay with me." Until he talked with Mets' President George Weiss on Monday, Casey didn 't really know where he stood for next season. If they were going to try to ease him out, though, he was prepared to make a fight of it. There really was no need to, as things turned out. By the time Weiss talked with Stengel, the two factions among the Mets' stockholders had been reconciled and to make it look unanimous, it was decided to give Casey a raise. No one needs it less nor deserves it more. Tipton Tied For 19th In State Gridiron Poll By KURT FREUDENTHAL United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Kokomo's Wildcats caught up with South Bend St. Joseph's today to share the top spot in the Indiana high school football popularity poll. Both received 90 out of a pos sible 100 points from the United Press International board of coaches. It was the third week in a row for St. Joe to lead the pack. Although the South Benders received five of the 10 first-ballot votes against only two for the Wildcats, the North Central Conference power had strong support with half a dozen run- nerup votes and none lower than third place. Both have won their first four starts. Kokomo was ranked second the past two weeks. Three newcomers made the "Big 10" for the first time— East Chicago Roosevelt, South Bend Riley and Indianapolis Sacred Heart, while four others lost ground. Reitz Third East Chicago's Rough Riders, who had to whip Hammond last weekend to stay unbeaten, climbed from 18th place to sixth; Riley was promoted from 15th place to ninth, and Sacred Heart from 13th to 10th. Elkhart's 1963 mythical state champions also climbed a notch, from fifth place to fourth. Meanwhile, Evansville Beitz remained third, Indianapolis Ripple seventh and South Bend Washington, which tangles with city foe Riley Saturday, eighth. Four other teams slipped. Indianapolis Cathedral was voted down from fourth to fifth and Hammond from sixth to 13th. Terre Haute Gerstmeyer, ninth last week, failed to get a single vote after its 20-6 loss to city rival Schulte. And Gary Wallace skidded from 10th to 12th, although it is unbeaten, as is Cathedral. • The ranks of the "also rans" were reduced to 20, with Tipton of the Central Conference the lone newcomer. Indianapolis Washington, Mishawaka and Evansville Rex Mundi were (Continued on page 6) Numbed Mauchmen Drop Ninth In Row WANTED MEN - WOMEN National Leigu* By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The only fact more fantastic than that the St. Louis Cardinals are tied for the National League lead today is the role played by a 38-year-old pitcher named Barney Schultz. A journeyman knuckleballer who has been with 15 different minor league teams and two previous big league clubs in a checkered career dating back to 1944, Schultz. has turned out to be the "lifesaver" for the Cardinals in their madcap dash for their first pennant' since 1946. Brought up from Jacksonville of the International League on July 31, Schultz has only a 1-3 won-lost record but in 28 games and 48 innings he has yielded just nine earned runs for a glittering 1.69 earned run average. What's more, he's relieved in the Cardinals' last five games — all victories — and in 9 1-3 innings of the toughest sort of clutch relief pitching since. Sept. 22 hasn't allowed a run. Preserves Victory The 6-foot, 2-inch, 190-pound righthander wrote another chapter in his remarkable story Tuesday night when he pitched shutout ball for the final 2 1-3 innings of the Cardinals' 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. The Cardinals' seventh straight win put them in a flat-footed first-place tie with the Cincinnati Reds, who suffered a 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Both the Cardinals and Reds have four games left to play while the Phillies, 11-2 games out of the lead, have only three. Schultz' only previous claim to fame was in 1962 when he tied the major league record by relieving in nine consecutive games for the Chicago Cubs. Schultz' close-out relief Tuesday night preserved Ray Sadecki's 20th win after the young lefthander had yielded seven hits and two runs in 6 2-3 innings. Doubles by Dick Groat and Julian Javier and a homer by Bill White were the big blows in a 10-hit Cardinal attack that dealt 'the Phillies their ninth consecutive defeat,, Friend Wins 13th Bob Friend was tagged for 11 hits but left 11 Red baserun- ners stranded and was rewarded with his 13th victory when Bill Mazeroski singled with the bases filled in the top of the ninth. Bob Bailey's single, Roberto Clemente's double and an intentional walk set the stage for Mazeroski, whose blow sent Bill McCool to his fourth loss against six wins. The loss ended the Reds' nine-game winning streak. The San Francisco Giants remained technically in the race with a 5-4 win over the Houston Colts, the Milwaukee braves tripped the New York Mets 7-6 and the Chicago Cubs edged out the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 in other NL action. Matty Alou hit his first home run in exactly two years to give the Giants their ll-inning victory and Japanese pitcher Masanori Murakami his first big league win. Murakami pitched one-hit shutout ball over the last three innings to close out a game in which Tom Haller also homered for the Giants and Jim Beaucoup and Rusty Staub homered for the Colts. Rico Carty'-s 21st homer and doubles by Lee Maye, Hank Aaron and Denis Menke led a 10-hit Milwaukee attack that gave Wade Blasingame his ninth victory of the season and sixth this month. Jim Hickman homered for the Mets. Bob Buhl squared his record at 14-14 for the Cubs when Jim Stewart doubled home the winning run off Bill Singer in the eighth. Rookie outfielder Willie Crawford had three hits for the Dodgers and John Boccabella had two for the Cubs. From affps 18 to 52.

The Chicago White Sox are keeping the pressure on the jNew York Yankees right down to the bitter end, Although the odds are all but hopeless, the White Sox refuse to call it quits and have edged back to within 2V4 games of the Yankees on the strength of five consecutive victories. The White Sox' big hope is that all four of their remaining games are with the last-place Kansas City Athletics while the [Yankees play four games Twith the Detroit Tigers and three with the Cleveland Indians: The Baltimore Orioles, who dropped back into third place as a result of the White Sox' 2-1 Tuesday night victory over Dean Chance and the Los Angeles Angels, have three with the Washington Senators and two with the Tigers, The Yankees' big advantage over both rivals is a four-game bulge in the lost column which means neither the White Sox or the Orioles can even tie unless the Yankees lose four of those last seven games. Still Have Chance Developments of the last 10 days in the National League have demonstrated, however, that all such mathematical calculations go out the window if a team suddenly hits a losing streak such as the Philadelphia Phillies have done. And so the White Sox are doing all that's left for them to do — to keep winning and hope for the best. The White Sox eked out their Tuesday night win in typical fashion — pushing over a cou- pie of runs in the sixth inning and then calling on relief ace Hoyt Wilhelm when rookie starter Bruce Howard faltered Pete Ward hit his 22nd homer to snap a scoreless .tie and the White Sox upped their lead to 2-0' when Ron Hansen singled home pinch-runner Mike Hershberger with an unearned run. Howard ran into trouble in the seventh when Willie Smith singled and scored on Bob Rodgers' double but Wilhelm came out of the bullpen to hold the Angels hitless for the final 2 2-3 innings and preserve the win for Howard. The Athletics pulled out a 7-6 15-inning triumph over the Min nesota Twins in the only other AL game as twi-night doubleheaders between New York and Detroit and Cleveland and Boston and a single game between Washington and. Baltimore were rained out. A total of 44 players saw action in the Kansas City-Minnesota marathon before Rocky Colavito broke it up with a 415-foot homer. Bert Campa- neris' two-run ninth-inning double had tied the score for the Athletics after two homers by Larry Stahl drove in their first four runs. A total of 15 pitchers saw action with John O'Donoghue the winner and Jim Kaat the loser. The Yankees will be out to resume their pennant countdown in a' twi-nighter with the Tigers tonight while the Oriples play a twi-nighter with Washington and the White Sox .are idle. Two Yankee victories and two Baltimore losses would eliminate the. Orioles but the White Sox must stay "alive" for another 24 hours because they can still finish the season with 98 victories.

' Chicago at Los Angeles ON THE SIDELINES BY HAM RIGG Well how d'ya like them apples! There's liT ol' Tipton perched in a 19th place tie with Terre Haute Schulte in the poll of Indiana High School football powers. It's awfully easy to drop out of there, of course, but it's just as easy to climb. Remember at the start of last basketball season. No one ranked the Sata' the beginning of the year, but they went about their business of winning basketball games one by one until their opportunity came against Kokomo. That one jumped the Blue Devils upward. Then came Lafayette Jeff and another jump. Then Huntington and low and behold those Blue Devils were in first place. Saturday night the football Blue Devils meet fifth place Cathedral in football. Along with coach • John Moses, we've said from the start of the season that this could be the best football team the Blue Devils have ever had. This is the first time in the school's history that they have ever been rated in the state coaches' poll, but that rating is just starting. Going against Lafayette last holiday season no one gave 'em a chance. Much the same situation prevails this Saturday night i n football. Their basketball brethren proved they deserved the rating by beating the state's top ranked hardwood power. Up To The Team Now is the chance for the football players to get equal recognition. Knock off Cathedral and they'll get into the top 10, and that opening game eye-popper to Carmel will be forgotten. Cathedral's strength lies i n defense rather than offense, although it's a good passing club. Of the teams in the top 10, the Irish are next to last in points scored, with 81 in four games. On the other hand, in those same four outings, they have allowed their opponents only 14 (night) — Jackson (23-10) vs. Moeller (7-13). Houston at San Francisco — Farrell (11-10) vs. • Perry (12-10).

Tipton has scored at least that many in every game it has played, although admittedly its opponents haven't been of) the calibre of Tech or Manuals— Cathedral wins its games by sound, fundamental football, letting its opponents beat themselves with mistakes. Fumbles, penalties, slow or missed tackles all come under that heading. The Irish don't commit team and .take advantage every time their opponents do. Coach Moses has his club coming along just about as he wants it. If the Tipton line can do. its job properly, we firmly believe the Tipton backs will outgain Cathedral's backs on the ground. In the air it may be a different story, but Moses knows the importance of this game. He's going to point out to his youngsters the opportunity they have to bring the sar.e recognition to Tipton in football that it received last year in basketball, and he won't want to take any chances of Cathedral undoing in the air, everything the Satans have been able to accomplish on the ground. He'll have his best boys in there on defense, just as he does on offense, so it should be a good game, win or lose. Support the Team Last year in basketball, the team couldn't have asked for better support. At Lafayette in the holiay tourney Tipton had a bigger crowd in the stands than any of the other visiting contenders. It's only fair to the boys on the football team that their followers, show them they have the same kind^f support. Five hundred tickets have been placed on sale at the five downtown Tipton locations. One hundred each are available at Carneys,' Blue Front, Falveys, Carrolls and Frisz. They are only 75 cents apiece. Another 500 are available at the high school, and. if the fans buy them out right away, athletic director Dick Barr may be able to get more before Saturday. Game time is eight o'clock at C.Y.O. Field. Let's have Tip ton's biggest crowd on hand for that one tand'.show the boys we're one hundred percent behind them. Six years ago when Huntington represented the CIC against State Champ Manual, 2,000 followers made the long trip to Indianapolis using chartered buses and cars, and we're certain the Vike fans are no more loyal than the Tipton fans. For children 12 years of age and under, special tickets will be on sale at the gate, at only 50 cents, but let's buy out the tickets that are already on sale here and let the boys know before they leave for' "naptown" that they are going to have full stands rooting for them against the Irish. Game Thursday There will be a full card of activity at home and away this Thursday. The high school B- team will be at home that evening against Frankfort High School's B-team and the Tipton freshman football team will travel to Frankfort the same night to play that freshman team.

Top Gridders NEW YORK (UPI)—Southern Mississippi, which gained its major college rating only this season by scheduling Memphis State twice, perched on top of the heap in statistics released today by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The newcomer ranked first in total defense, allowing only 71 yards per game, and second in total offense, grinding out 516 yards' per game. Southern also took second place in rushing offense in its victory over Southwestern Louisiana, the Southerners' hapless minor college contender, by running fourth-rated offense (419 yards), for 327 yards. In total offense, Dartmouth leads with 556 yards gained in its 30-0 win over New Hampshire. The Indians are third in passing (263 yards). Nebraska is third with a 422-yard average in two games. Wake Forest, whose offense considered itself lucky to win one game last season, pulled a shocker by winding up third in rushing offense (322.5 yards in two games). The Deacons, who scored only 37 points last 3 T ear compared to 318 for their opponents, have already scored 59 this season to be fifth. Baylor leads the nation in passing even without the services of AU-American quarterback Don Trull with 327 yards on aerials. Notre Dame is second (270 yards). Auburn ranks second in defense, allowing only 82 yards per game to Houston and Tennessee. This weekend the Tigers' will have their hands full when they face the seventh-best offensive team, Kentucky (389.5 yards in two games). Purdue is third in defense, giving up only 93 yards in its victory' of Ohio University. The Boilermakers will also have' trouble' maintaining their average this weekend against Notre Dame, which sports the fourth-rated offense (319-yards). Notre Dame will not only be rough offensively, but will also test Purdue with its. number one rushing defense. The Irish slammed into Wisconsin for minus 11 yard running, the most powerful opening game rushing defense since. Cornell stopped New York University in 1948 for a net loss of 62 yards. Cincinnati leads in forward pass defense (4 yards) even though' it 'did meet Dayton the top rusher and ninth offensively. U.S. Olympian Arrive in Tokyo TOKYO (UPI) — The advance guard of the U. S. Olympic team flew in from Los Angeles today and many abandoned hopes of trying to sleep in favor of acquainting themselves with the Tokyo setup for the 1964 games. Tiiere was no one on hand to greet the arrivals at Tokyo International Airport and Olympic Village officials claimed the group, which included the entire track, boxing and rowing squads, flew in "four hours early." The Yanks wandered about the yogi (main) Olympic village and exchanged greetings with Russian athletes as they waited to go through the process of room and equipment allotments. " Some Yanks had an early breakfast and went to sleep, others were too elated at their new surroundings to risk a nap for fear they would miss something exciting. Charles (Rut) Walter of Wisconsin, one of four track coaches, . said, "we had a good trip across and everybody is fit and ready for action. Walter promptly mounted a bicycle, a vehicle he hasn't ridden in 20 years, and safely made' the one-mile journey to the training track.
