SPORTANGLES By Fred Mendell What chance do the Pirates have against the Orioles? I've been asked that question a dozen times and the answer usually has been: "Slim and none " Come to think of it though, that answer is ridiculous. The Pirates have fellows who can throw the ball. They have fellows who can hit the ball. They won the National League championship and they'll be on the field for Saturday's opener at Baltimore. The law of averages makes Baltimore an overwhelming favorite. Statistics give Baltimore better pitching, better fielding, near equality in hitting and full equality in power. They should win in not more than five games. But Pittsburgh cnrfninly has every bit as good a chance to take the series as the Mets had in 1969 — or Pittsburgh itself against the Yankees when the Pirates were last in t h c series, in 1960. Any good World Almanac will tell you the Mots d i d dpfeat Baltimore for the world cham- pionshio in 1969 and the Pirates did defeat the Yanks in 1960. And the exoerts, who had made the Yanks overwhelming favorites in 1960 and the Orioles overwhelming favorites in 1969 explained it all awav by saying Somebodv Uo Ther 0 hnd maneuvered things to help the underdogs. I believe Somebody U*» There has more imnor'wt things to do th'in manipulate games. I don't believe in lcprachauns or fairies. But I know quite a bit about bad bounces and unbelievable results. Who would yui sav would win the series, fn- cxamnle. if one team, say the Yankees, outsenred the oth"r fpm. say th» Pirates. 54 to 27? If voir answer was Yankees, you'd be wrong. In 1960 the Yankees won three scries games. The scores were 16-3, 10-0, 120. That's 38-?. right there. But the Pirates sneaked off with narrow margin victories in three, and the teams were all even (in games won and lost) heading into game No. 7. After seven innings in the final game, the Yanks had a 7 4 lead, thanks to, among other things, a three - run homer by Yogi Berra in the sixth. But in the Pirate eighth, with a man on base, Bill Virdon hit what looked like a sure double- play ball at the Yankee shortstop Tony Kubek. The ball took a straight-up bounce, going over Kubek's glove by a fobt. It struck Kubek in t h e throat and down he went while the ball rolled free. Before the inning was over Pittsburgh scored five runs for a 9-7 lead. The Yanks tied the score in the top of the ninth, but Bill Mazeroski cliDped the knot in the Pirate half of the inning with a homer. Pittsburgh won the series four games to three, although outscored 54-27. Even more surprising was the Mets' triumph over the invincible Orioles in 1969. They didn't even need a long series. Baltimore won game one, 4 -1 and some folks were betting the Orioles would take it In a sweep of four games. There was a sweep, alright — by the Mets, who won 2-1, 5-0, 2 1, 5 -3— scoring 14 runs to the Orioles paltry 5 in the next four games. Baltimore has four 20-game winners, the strongest pitching staff ever to enter a series. The Oioles won their last 11 games in the regular season and swept the playoffs from Oakland, 3-0. I'm not sure a 14-game win streak is a good thing to carry into a world series, but I know pitchers like Dave McNally. Jim Palmer, Mike Cuellar and Pat Dobson, fielders like Brooks Robinson; hitters like Frank Robinson and Boog Powell are wonderful commodities going into any kind of baseball mixup, a season or a series. Baltimore in five. But I won't guarantee it.

New York 5, Boston 3 McNally Opposes Ellis in Series Opener By MIKE RATHET BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore Manager Earl Weaver selected consistent left-hander Dave McNally Thursday as his starter for Saturday's World Series against the Pittsburgh Pirates and controversial right­ hander Dock Ellis, who immediately went into his room- juggling act after arriving here. Ellis, who last Monday blasted the Pirates for pinching pennies, was one of several Pi­ rates who flew in on the team charter plane Thursday to find their hotel accommodations unsatisfactory when they landed in downtown Baltimore. Same Old Thing "It's the same old thing," said Ellis. "I'd like to get out of here and go some place else, but there's no other hotel space." "I'd like to invite you all up to my room," outfielder Willie Stargell offered, "but I can't— there's someone up there sit­ ting in the bed and smoking." Despite the unhappiness of some of the Pirates, there was nothing the Pittsburgh organization could have done to accommodate the players, hotel space being at a premium in a city with a limited number of rooms available. Juggled Rooms So while the Orioles spent the day loosening up at Memorial Stadium, Ellis, Stargell and Co spent the afternoon juggling rooms as best they could to ac commodate themselves as much as possible. The Orioles, established as early 5-3 favorites to win the Series, also had problems- Weaver hesitating before setting up his pitching rotation and waiting for a doctor's report on slugging first baseman Boog Powell. Powell missed the Orioles' workout to have X-rays taken of his ailing right hand. The X- rays proved negative but showed Powell has torn fibers in the back of his hand, which may handicap him but won't stop him from playing Left, Right, Left Weaver, concerned by the fact that the Pirates displayed power from both sides of the plate in beating San Francisco in the National League playoffs, finally settled on a left- right-left rotation of McNally, Jim Palmer and Mike Cuellar for the first three games. There had been speculation that Weaver might go with Palmer in the opener to offset the Pirates' right-handed hitting sluggers. "Pittsburgh has a balanced attack from either side of the plate," said Weaver, "but there seemed to be more reasons for pitching a left-hander. I'll tell you why after the Scries. "If we're successful it will seem logical as hell. If not, I'm going to be second guessed anyway." Dobson May Start Weaver said his fourth 20- gamc winner, Pat Dobson, will be in the bullpen when the Series opens but could be his starter in Game No. 4. Ellis, who has been bothered by elbow trouble in recent out­ ings, was selected as Pittsburgh's starter by Manager Danny Murtaugh after the Pirates clinched their first NL pennant since 1960 by defeating San Francisco 9-5 in the fourth playoff game Wednesday. Despite the odds favoring the Orioles to win their third World Series in six years with a team many consider as good as any ever put together, the Pirates were relying on an estimate by veteran second baseman Bill Mazeroski that the current Pittsburgh team is better than the 1960 world champions. Mazeroski, who hit the game- winning homer that wrapped up the I960 Series over the New York Yankees in the seventh game, left no doubt about how he felt when he said: "This team is much better all around. It's stronger. It has Page I The Hutchinson New* Friday, Oct.

This team can overpower you, where we had to finesse and do little things better in 1960." That Pittsburgh power, represented by guys such as Stargell, Bob Robertson, Richie Hebner and Roberto Clemente, may very well be the key for the Pirates since they come into the Series much like Cincinnati did last year, with their pitching seemingly disintegrating. The Orioles, who knocked off the Reds in five games, are in the exact same shape they season-ending 11-game streak and three consecutive playoff victories over Oakland. The long range weather forecast called for sunny skies with temperatures in the low 70s for the opener.

Nickerson "A" girls now have a 3-1 season record. Nicklaus Reaches Semis VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Defending champion Jack Nicklaus was a narrow winner and Arnold Palmer was an unhappy loser—upset by the swarming crowd and opponent Bob Charles—Thursday in the Picadilly World Match Play Golf Championships. Nicklaus withstood two charges by Lian Huan Lu of Taiwan to win their 36-hole match 2 and 1 and advance to the semifinals of this eight-man tournament with a first prize of $20,410. He will play Neil Coles of Great Britain, who beat American Charles Coody 5 and 4, Friday. On Extra Hole Charles eliminated Palmer on the 37th hole and will play South African Gary Player, 4 and 3 winner over Britain's Tony Jacklin. It was dusk when Palmer and Charles finished 36 holes all even, and Palmer walked to the tee of the first extra hole where he had to wait 10 minutes because Charles had gone into the clubhouse. "If I had known he was going in, I would have followed him and suggested we play the extra hole tomorrow morning because it was getting dark," Palmer said. Palmer lost the extra hole and then had something to say about the crowd of around 6,000 fans who swarmed over the fairway to watch the play. Out of Control "There's no other major tournament in the world where the gallery gets out of control as it does here," said Palmer. "It is one reason why I missed this tournament last year and the year before." Neinas Likes Tight Reins KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Big Eight Conference dipped into the staff of the National Collegiate Athletic Association for the second time in a decade Wednesday and tapped Charles M. "Chuck" Neinas as its new commissioner, Neinas, 39, succeeds Wayne Duke, who was with the NCAA headquarters here when he became commissioner in 1963. Duke resigned early in August to join the Big Ten Conference in a similar position. Like Duke, Neinas was assistant to Walter Byers, executive director of the NCAA. Neinas wasted no time in serving notice he expects conference schools to follow rules and regulations to the letter when he said that "basically, I am for a strong enforcement program." He made the statement Wednesday at a news conference just after Prof. Charles H. Oldfather, conference chairman and faculty representative of the University of Kansas, announced selection of the new commissioner. At that time, he was being trained to take over another radio station owned by WEAQ in Eau Claire. Neinas has had limited ath letic experience as a player. He said he used to work out with the Wisconsin team while he was broadcasting the school's games. "When I got tired of working out," he said, "I became.the referee for the practices." He also played two years of varsity basketball at Wisconsin State University, then known as Padres Keep Entire Staff SAN DIEGO (AP) - Manager Preston Gomez and the rest of the San Diego Padres coaching staff were rehired Thursday for the 1972 season, despite the third straight year in the National League cellar. "It has never been my policy to blame the manager or coaches for failures on the field," said E. J. "Buzzie" Bavasi, the club's president, in making the announcement. Bavasi said, "If our club improves next year as I anticipate it will, it is only right that the present manager and coaches be part of it." He said Don Zimmer, a Mon­ treal coach who managed the Padres' class AAA club at Salt Lake City in 1970, will assist Gomez as coach at third base. Oiler Scout George Found Dead in Room KENT, Ohio (AP) - Houston Oiler football scout Ernie George, 51, was found dead in his hotel room Wednesday. Dr. Robert Sybert, Portage County coroner, ruled the death due to natural causes. George, who had been in foot ball 31 years, will be buried in Vandalia, north of Dayton. Galva Clips Comets 46-0 By KENNY WOODARD Eight-man football made its only 1971 appearance in Hutchinson Thursday night and a rather large crowd turned out to see the game between the Central . Christian Comets and the Galva Chieftains. The Comets were shutout by Galva 46-0 at Pritchard Memorial field. This is the Comets first season in football and while they were hitting with enthusiasm, Galva's experience and depth proved too much. The loss gives Central Christian a 1-1 record. Galva scored all of its touchdowns on end-around plays with quarterback Glen Fasnacht and Roy Russell, a split end, doing most of the scoring. Lynn Baldwin and Dennis Hofmeier also scored for the Chieftains. Baldwins touchdown, a 33- yard jaunt, put the first six points on the scoreboard at 8:25 in the first quarter. Russell scored with 11 minutes left in the second period and Fasnacht went in on a keeper from 33 -yards out at 1 :46. Fasnacht also had a two point conversion, earlier, after the touchdown by Russell. This gave Galva a 20-0 lead at halftime. Fasnacht scored twice in the third quarter on a five yard plunge and a 15-yard sweep. Galva collected two more points in the same quarter by dropping the Comets quarterback, Larry Kaufman in the end zone for a safety. In the fourth period, Russell went in from four yards out with 2:44 remaining. Fasnacht tossed a 15-yard scoring pass to Dennis Hofmeier with four seconds left in the game. The rugged Galva defense held Central Christian to just 24 yards rushing. The Chieftains are 1-2 for the season. Galva 6 14 14 12—46 Central Christian 0 0 0 0—0 Jays Have Skull Drills LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Jayhawks reviewed their tactics in a no-contact drill Thursday and coach Don Fambrough pointed out that was a change. "Last week we had physical- type practices but now I know we didn't do much mentally," he said. "I hope we are improving mentally this week." Court Lifts Blackout? TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A federal judge refused Thursday to intervene in a state court suit which has ordered the NCAA not to prohibit the televising of Saturday's football game between Oklahoma and Texas in Tulsa County. U.S. Dist. Court Judge Fred Daugherty, who came here from Muskogee after the NCAA request was assigned to him, announced the decision to newsmen after a closed-door conference with attorneys for the NCAA and three Tulsans who originally brought the action. Daugherty said the cuit does not involve a federal question and that he was reminding it to the state court. The decision leaves the temporary injunction issued Tuesday by Tulsa County District' Court Judge Raymond Graham in effect. The NCAA has approved plans for closed-circuit television only in Tulsa County. It was not immediately clear whether the closed-circuit proposal would satisfy Graham's order that television not be prohibited in Tulsa County. Chuck Neinas Central State College, before he transferred to Wisconsin. As a basketball player, he said he was "no great shakes." Neinas said he was for strong enforcen.ent for two reasons: "You should try to solve your own problems, and true enforcement begins at home." Oldfather said the conference is committed to "this kind of position." Neinas asserted that the decade of the seventies has been "termed by some as a time of crisis for intercollegiate athletics. I think it not only will survive but will prosper." Neinas said he regarded the Big Eight post as "a professional advancement, a real challenge. It's exciting to me I'm glad to be on the ground floor where the action is." Angels Fire Staff ANAHEIM (AP) - Manager Lcftv Phillips and his four coaches were dismissed Thursday by the California Angels. Gene Autry, board chairman of the American League team, and Bob Reynolds, president, issued a statement saying the contracts of the five would not be renewed. Phillips was offered a job in the Angels' player personnel and scouting department but did not say whether he will accept the offer. There was no hint from management when a new manager would be named. The coaches are Rocky Bridges, Carl Koenig, Pete Reiser and Norm Sherry. The announcement had been forecast for weeks after a year of turmoil highlighted by the celebrated Alex Johnson case. Phillips, a former Los Angeles Dodger scout and coach, succeeded Bill Rigney May 27, 1969. In his nearly three years with California, his teams won 221 games and lost 225. The Angels finished third in the American League West in 1969 and 1970 and fourth this past season. "We believe Lefty is an excellent baseball man but there came the time when changes had to be made," said a joint statement from Autry and Reynolds. "We felt the position of the club in the standings indicates such a change is in order." Salt Hawks Take First MCPHERSON Hutchinson high school cross country runners won both varsity and second team races in the McPherson Invitational meet, Thursday. Roger Caldwell of Hutchinson won the A - two mile race in 10:22 despite wind and an extremely tough hilly course. Two other Hutch runners chased him home, Ted Crank taking second and Joe Gimar, third. Hutchinson scored 27 points, with S a 1 i n a Central a distant second with 64 and Newton third with 91. Junction City was fourth with 113, McPherson scored 114, Salina South 124 and Ellinwood 135. Finishing in order behind Gimar were: Dave Reese, Salina Central; Terry Reed; Salina Central; Chuck Weston, Newton; Guy Gerard, McPherson; Larry Achilles, Hutchinson; Jeff Huslig, Ellinwood and Larry Zock, Salina Central. Terry George of Hutchinson was 13th and Gene Bircher, 24th. The field included 47 runners. Everett Victor Mike Everett of Hutchinson won the B - team race in 11:31. He was followed by Rick Jones, Newton, Tom Taylor, McPherson, Frank Meacham, Newton; Robert Calhoun, Hutchinson; Dave Kerbs, Salina South; Tim Shea, Salina South; Jeff Ludwig, Salina Central; Tim Holtz, Salina Central and Bob Kline, Hutchinson. Ed Almanza of Hutchinson finished 14th, Bruce Freeman 15th, Craig Bircher, 17th and Tim Fry 19th. The Hutch B team scored 45 points Newton was second with 68. Salina Central totaled 69, Salina South 79 and McPherson 88. The Hutchinson team will compete in the Wichita Heights Invitational at 4 p .m. Friday at Tichita's Rolling Hills golf course. Gametime is 7:30 p.m. The Hawks, off to one of their best starts in several years with a 3-1 record, will be seeking to go above the .500 mark in Ark Valley League play. Hutchinson's only loss this season was a 13-6 overtime defeat by El Dorado in an AVL contest. Coach Glenn Percy, pleased with the practice sessions of his team this week, said Thursday he plans no lineup changes from last week. The Hawks will be heading into the Campus game with two of the top statistical leaders in the conference. Senior tailback Scott Butterfield is the leading rusher in the AVL and Kelvin O'Brien, the senior slot back, leads the loop in scoring with six touchdowns for 36 points. They will be in the starting backfield along with junior quarterback Doug Baar and fullback Mike Franko. Percy said that junior Scott Willctt will remain at tight end where he started last week. Mike Love will be limited to kicking duties the remainder of the season due to a bad knee. Brian Cully will again be at weak tackle with Brad Stephenson at weak side guard, Mike Madelen at center, Bob Ziegler at strong side guard and Guy oopcr at strong tackle. Little Jim Hubbard, the 135- lb. junior who threw the key block to spring Scott Butterfield on his 59-yard touchdown run last week, will again start at split end. Percy said Campus is comparable in overall size to the Salt Hawks. While the Salt Hawks are playing at Campus, the sophomores, plus a few juniors, will be meeting the Sterling High School varsity at Smisor Stadium in Sterling at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

(AP) They wheeled out the cheer leaders and band to whomp up some extra enthusiasm among the Kansas State Wildcats at football practice Thursday. The pep rally was designed to build a bigger load of Purple Pride to take to Lawrence for the Kansas game Saturday. Coach Vince Gibson said all his ailing players should be ready to play. They include fullback Tim McLane, defensive back Johnny Robertson and wing back Mike Creed. Gibson said, "I think it will be a close game, and when you have a game of emotions like this you can't tell how it's going to come out." He said the Wildcats must not make a lot of mistakes.
