Dakota U. (night) The Class B Northsvest Conference begins its 3958 campaign this weekend with four games scheduled Friday and Saturday nights. And one of those four is a big one. Friday night, in the only league game, Whitefish travels to Poison in a game that could go a long way in deternxjning each team's chances in the l e a g u e struggle ahead. It was Poison that killed Whitefish's hopes in the 1957 season. The Pirates won at Whitefish, 2113, ending all question of Whitefish sharing the title with either Poison or Ronan. Many of the stars from b o t h teams are gone this season, but Poison has the best of it in returning lettermen -- eight to five. Half of. those eight veterans form a complete backfield for the Pirates. · The two teams have opposite records so far this young season. ,. ·Whitefish began on a sour note, losing a 13-6 decision to. an improved Columbia Falls outfit, Polr- son had to come from behind against a stubborn Hamilton club to win, 10-7, behind quarterback Ken Newgard, who passed for one touchdown and booted a game- winning field goal -in the last above all, he can kick those extra points with precision. But, Whitefish,'too, has * capable quarterback in Bob Frank, the Bulldogs' small, but steady sophomore field general. He understudied Jim Baker last season as a freshman, but has come into his own this year. Against Columbia Falls, he passed for Whitefish's only touchdown to end Dan Paolini, who also presents a threat. The-only other Friday g a m e slated is Bigfork's trip to Arlee in the Class C District 13 Conference. Saturday night four games are on tap in the valley. Foremost is the Anaconda-Flathead C o u n t y High School game at the FCHS field. It is the first Class AA Conference game of the season for Flathead, but not the first conference team to be faced.

He has plenty of tackles, particularly if junior Jim Marshall, an all-conference player as a sophomore last year, regains his'' eligibility as expected; good ends, and hope at center. Where the Buckeyes may be lacking, however, is in backfield depth. If Don Clark's siege of injuries returns, Hayes won't have nearly as capable a replacement, and quarterbackjng behind Frank Kremblas is uncertain. Wisconsin was a sophomore eleven last year an dlost only two men, guard Perry Gehler and halfback Danny Lewis. Coach Milt Bi-uhn has switched quarterback Sid Williams to halfback and will use Dale Hackbart to call signals. This combination will give him speed and running ability plus what might be the best pass defense combination in the conference. -And he'll have plenty of size, speed and added experience up front. Last year the Buckeyes nudged take over for Walt Kowalczyk. The Spartans will be tough, with good depth, but probably not good enough tor, more than third place. Illinois and Purdue rank as darkhorse threats. The Boilermakers won five of their last six games last year and Jack Mollenkopf's tentative two-deep has only one minor letter winner, the rest regulars. Purdue will have a solid big line with speed, fair passing, and good backfield speed. But fullback could be a problem an.d halfbacks are small. The Illini will have the biggest line in Bay Eliot's tenure and will be stronger on.defense, less impressive on offense. Eliot lost both of his halfbacks, Bob Mitchell and Dale Smith, and his reserves aren't up to their standard. Also his prime quarterback, Tom Haller, signed a pro baseball contract to leave him the problem of finding someone to take over. Michigan and Iowa won't be as strong as last year. The Hawkeyes lost their best linemen and even Skinner, ,'Tltt. ..13E 493 88 158 ' .320 By FRED DOWN ] By United Fret* International Robin Roberts and Richie Ashburn, two of the original whiz kids who helped Eddie Sawyer lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a pennant in 1950, are making gallant efforts to prevent a last-place finish for the returned pilot this year. And, in the process, Roberts could well wind up with a "comeback of the year" award and Ash- nurn with a National League batting title. The Phillies, who haven't finished in the cellar since .1945, ""TM" climbed to within two games of St. LouU the seventh place Chicago Cubs when they beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-2, last night. The Milwaukee Braves, trimmed their magic pennant clinching number to four with an 8-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the only other day or night activity In either league. Roberts, who seemed over the hill after 19-18 and 10-22 won-lost records the last two years, "pitched a seven-hitter to raise his current mark to 16-13. It was his 19th complete game of the season and his five strikeouts raised his total to-'123 for 252 innings. Ashburn, who set a club record by playing in his 1,631st game, raised his league-leading average to .343 when he smashed a triple and a single. Ashburn now holds a five-point lead over St. Louis' Stan Musial, idle again last night, and is eight points ahead of San Francisco's Willie Mays and 10 ahead of Milwaukee's Hank Aaron Doubles by Harry Anderson and Jim Hegan plus a sacrifice fly by Ted Kazanski gave- the Phillies a 2-0 lead in the second inning and they added single runs at the expense of Vinegar Bend Mizell in the fifth and sixth. The loss was Mizell's 12th compared to 10 vic- ie for the pennant for the Braves. The Yankees, playing out the tring after their clinching in Kansas City on Sunday, have Bob Turey going against Detroit's Frank Lary. Turley is trying for his 22nd victory -- a total which would make him the biggest Yankee winner since Lefty Gomez won 26 games in 1934.

Ohio State gets a scheduled break, liowe'ver. It doesn't play Michigan State and its tough games, Illinois, Wisconsin and Purdue, are separated by contests with Indiana and Northwestern, second division clubs, to give Hayes time to regroup. . Wisconsin, on the other hand, tangles .with Purdue, Iowa, Ohio State and Michigan State in order to face a murderer's row. " Michigan State would have been though Forest Evashevski has nine lettermen backs. Including quarterback Randy Duncan, he'll lack depth up front and the blocking won't be as potent. Michigan's Bennie Oosterbaan rates his major problems to develop interior linemen, find a quarterback and develop a tailback, and the potential for the usual Wolverine powerhouse isn't too high. Northwestern, Indiana and Minnesota look like the bottom rung of the ladder. The Wildcats' Ara Parseghian expects improvement, but he expects to go with one of two sophomore quarterbacks and he'll need depth at nearly every position. Indiana's Phil Dickens, suspended last year, also expects a better team, even though it might not win a game. His linemen should be Improved and experience overall should help. Minnesota will be big but slow and Murray Warmath needs backs badly. Noire Dame has virtually the same roster as a year ago when it won seven and lost three, but Terry Brennan believes a 5-5 season for 1958 would be good. He lacks line speed, has no breakaway Hutch Out, Hemus In? No, Says Meyer ST. LOUIS (UPI)--Dick Meyer vice president of the St. Louis Cardinals, said today that no de cision has been made whether. Fred Hutchinson will be retained a manager of the club. "Our position is and has been that we are not going to make ou decision until the end of the year,' said Meyer when asked of report that Solly Hemus of the Philadel phia Phillies already has been de cided upon as the new pilot. "An report to the contrary is not i keeping with the facts." In Philadelphia, Hemus als denied the report. "I told Bob Carpenter (ownc of the Phillies) Monday that Knew nothing about the report said Hemus. "I haven't been con tacted and I don't know anything 1 more than I read in the paper."
