Bradshaw said he had teiegrapli- ed charges to AIC commissioner H. L. McAlisler, Little'Rock, but had not yet made a formal 'request lor conference action. The Ouachiln coach based his ac- ciksation on state's use Saturday night of Pel Austin, who played professional baseball with the Hot Springs Bathers of the Cotton States.League last summer. 't have reason to believe," Bradshaw added, "that they're u.sing other athletes who are ineligible." At Jonesboro, Stale Coach Forrest England said he knew Austin, a defensive halioack, wa.s a professional baseball'player, but he t ciled a seclion of the Ale constitution which bars professionals from AIC competition but excludes professionals who were enrolled In a conference institution on Dec. 20. 1947. The state coach pointed out that Austin enrolled in September, 1947. Commissioner McAtister said in Little Rock that he understood the conference Intended to exempt such students only if .they did not participate furiher In professional sports." 5 Class 6 Teams Play This Week Bulldogs of Wilson To Meet Trumann;' Osceota vs. Luxora Five of South Mississippi County's ix Class B schoolboy teams return o action this week while the Dyess sier enjoy an open date. : Highlight of this week's action •ill be at Wilson where Wilson !igh School's undefeated Bulldogs o a'gainst the Trumann Wildcats nd they are expected to emerge rom this tussle with their sea.son's ecord still unblemished.

Because he had the right relief men when he needed them most, Steiigcl led his assorted cripples to the winners' share of tre Jackpot— 55,884 for each Yankee. Pitching usually t«lls the story of a short series. It was no different in the five-gnme 194S set. Only this time it was the relief work of Allle Reynolds and flrernan Joe Page that stood out after the Yanks and Dodgers swapped l-o shutouts in the first two record-breaking games. Certainly there were other stars Bobby Brown for his .500 batting average, Johnny Mize for his 1000 pinch hitting, Tommy Henrlch foi the homer that won the opener and little Phil Rlzzuto for his superlative shortstop play. But way out front there were the two "big" men of the Yanks' lath series triumph in 16 tries—Reynolds and Page. - -,.--' Page, of course, ran true to form. Hadn't he marched from the bullpen 60 times during the regular season, 20 ol them to save Reynolds? Reynolds Does About Face Reynolds' brilliant performance of no runs and only two hits l\ 12 IJ3 innings was a direct" right- about-face. "Old Wahoo" completed but four gamer in -31 starts. He even got the opening assignment on sort of a rnin check. Originally Stengel expected to send Ed Lopat after the Brooks last Wednesday. He shifted to Reynolds the day before the- game. Not even the dream hooks can do that good. Allie threw his hyo-hitter, 1-0, in nullifying Don Newcombe's ' 11 strikeouts with nine of his own. Preacher Roe Blanked the Yanks' Vic Raschi the next afternoon Then (he bullpen corporation took over. It was Page with n 5-2>3 inning "stopper" after Tommy Byrne went bad In the third game. Reynolds bailed out Lopat by retiring the last 10 men in succession in the fourth. Things ended normally at Ebbet Field yesterday afternoon, .with Page ambling In to finish what Raschi started. Working with only two days rest, like Newconibe in Saturday's sad effort, Raschi crumbled in the Dodger seventh.;A 1Q-2 lead melted to 10-6.
