SPORTS ROUNDUP Richards Talks Pennanl With Only One Big IF By OAyLF, TALBOT PHOENIX, Ariz., net-- Paul Richards, the gloomy ringmaster of the Chicago White Sox, has come out of the heat of his preliminary training cump at El Centre, Calif., talking pennant, with only. one important "if." Unsmiling as ever, the. thin man from Waxahachie faced the hig question squarely. . "If all our stars play up to what they have shown they can do in other': years, I think we have a real , good chance," he said. "I like 'this team very much. .However/ if three or four of . them should haye_;ioor seasons, then" you know.' we- are not going to win anything. -It's a* simple as that." ;' What, -he was next asked; did he think would .happen to the New York.! Yankees ."it "ttle" Phil Rizzu- to'a'. pet :«lcer -should prevent his playing: Jfl -full: seasoh at shortstop for - the onampioris.

If .you' see ^sey Stengel qlve Wm my re- Cards nnd tell him I hope lie has Rlzzuto for about 13- panics." . It is well kn'-iwn i n . baseball circles that Richards does not much like the Yanks' peerless leader. He engaged : in one of last year's prize ruckusses. at the stadium and still feels he was robbed of a victory. Had to do with a game called because of rain. "It's too early yet to say whether Vein Stephens' bad- . knee will permit him', to play third regularly,". Richards 'said of the former Boston Red Sox. '"He says it feels all right and he's been running and taking batting drill, but I want him to take it easy for a while. "I'm not too worried one way or the other. If Stephens doesn't do it I'll be perfectly willing to go with Rocco Krsnlch at third, He .won't hit with Stephens but heCs.a really fine infielder and helps our over- alt speed. "With him, ' Chico Carrasquel, Nellie .Fox and Ferris Fain in 'my infield antl Minnie Minoso, Jim Rivera arid Sam Mcte'in the outfield, I have much the fastest leain in baseball.
