SIXTEEN THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30. 1946. SECOND SECTION FAT BOLAND NAMED ROCK PTh AtPTUT JO. Keeshin Decides Me Needs Full-Time Man New Mentor Was AH-Americaii At Minnesota; Ernie Nevers. Restored To Post As Backs' Coach ; Play Final Home Game Friday CHICAGO, Oct. 23 (UP) President John L. Keeshin of the Chicago Rockets professional football team ended his player coaching experiment today and appointed Pat Boland, former All-American tackle at Minnesota, as head coach for the remain der of the season ;1 Roland, appointed to give the team an "older, more experienced head," took charge of the Rockets today as they drilled for their final home All-America Conference game against the Brooklyn Dodgers Friday night. Ernie Nevers, former Stanford fullback, was restored to active status as backfield coach. The new appointments marked the third major coaching shake-up in the league within two weeks. Jack Meagher resigned as coach of the Miamt Seahawks last week and was replaced by his assistants, and Dr. Mai Stevens resigned as mentor of the Brooklyn Dodgers. The new Rocket appointments sent back to the ranks the three player coaches Willie Wilkin, Ned Mathews and Bob Dove who had directed the team on an experimental basis since Coach Richard (Dick) Hanley left the club Sept. 25, in a dispute with Keeshin after the team made a poor early-season showing. , , , The appointment of Boland and Nevers, both assistants to Hanley at the time he left the club, was encouraged when the Rockets suffered a humiliating 49 to 17 defeat against the Buffalo Bisons last Sunday. , , ' Keeshin's latest move ended the uncertainty over Boland's and Nevers' future status with the club. They had been inactive since Ilan-.ley departed. 7 Is? T.w -f-Z ... rfr xnto DUSH By K. S. VANDERGRIFT CANNONEERS STRONG Major Art Dahlberg's nawauan Artillery Command Cannoneers nave aireaoy fmitJicw u riiviion crown of the inter-serv ice football league. When. they took the Naval Receiving Station team 64 to 0 they completed their slate with a record of four wms and no ties. Now the Cannoneers are pointing towards their playoff -am, with the Ford Island Nav team, certain winners of the "A" division. No definite date has been set yet for the game but it may be an Armistice Day special. Rumors that the beine weakened by the loss of player personnel are not grounded on facts. The Cannoneers, with the full support of the Ack-Ack command, nave pnined, not lost, player sirengin. They have had a few costly injuries but with four good teams still left expect to make it a whale of a play-off battle when the title game comes up. It will be Hawaii's own Army-Navy game. GRID NOTES There Is no doubt but what the Schofield Redlander team of the present time is about 100 percent stronger than the team that was beaten by the Hawaiian Artillery Comand. Players rained by the enforcement of the Army athletic order helped the Rdlanders a great deal. This past weekend in a Navy Dav special coach Don Cashin's team turned back the Fearl Harbor Marines 28 to 0 playing: at Fearl Harbor. The Reds coasted most of the way with the second and third teams carrying the brunt of the attack. Sparkplug- of the Initial attack (with four touchdowns two were called back) was Wally Yonamlne. sensational backfield ace, who is predicted as the com in successor to Herman Wedemeyer. The Red-landers may still meet the Ha-' waiian Artillery Command again since a proposed Mid-Tao Army league is under consideration. The league may be run off to nam the Hawaiian Area team to represent the area In the inter-command games. Tentative working plans call for a six team loop and games on Wednesday afternoons.

May HBe DBacelk Em By MILIUM HIUIUIAM NEW YORK, Oct. 28 (UP) The plaintive cry of "break up the Yankees" which echoed throughout baseball six years ago was being answered today by obliging Larry MacPhail, wno is wreck' ing the dynasty so he can builda new ana lirmer iounaation. MacPhail started almost at the core itself when he issued un conditional releases to two of the MacPhail In Action old guard, Pitcher Charley (Red Ruffing and Catcher-Manager Bill Dickey. The two players had put in a total of 30 years with the Yankees and participated in several World Series with the New Yorkers. After cutting loose Ruffing and Dickey, MacPhail eased Joe (Flash) Gordon out of the btadi- um ,picture by moving him to Cleveland in exchange for fastball pitcher Allie Reynolds. Gor don slipped badly since emerging from the Army at the beginning of the 1946 season and was destined for other pastures before half the campaign had expired. Following Gordon's removal, burly Ernie Bonham was routed to the Pittsburgh Pirates while southpaw Art Cuccurullo of the Buccaneers was transferred to the Yankees. MacPhail, from all indications, has just started to manipulate his hirelings. Several other veteran Yankees f players are slated for other berths. Few on MacPhail's payroll are certain of being with the Bronx Bombers next summer Among those who aren't antici pating transfers over the winter, are Aaron Robinson, Larry Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Spud Chandler, Bob Brown, Charley Keller and Tommy Hennch. Others, such as ' Phil Rizzuto, Nick Etten, Billy Johnson, Joe Page, Johnny Lindell and George (Snuffy) Stirnweiss, can be had for the right price or the proper combination of players. The lanky Lindell Is one player who is being used as trading bait. MacPhail has received several offers for the 6-foot-4-inch outf 1 e 1 d e r but thus far has failed to accept any.- The Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Philadelphia Athletics are especially eager to have Lindell in their employ. It is no secret that the Yankees are eyeing players on other American League clubs. Outfielder Stan Spence and First-Baseman Jim Vernon of, the Washington Senators appeal to MacPhail, as does Catcher War ren (Buddy) Rosar of the Athlet ics. Rossr once was tne property of the Yanks but drew the ire of then-manager Joe McCarthy when he took French-leave of the team to visit his Buffalo, N. Y., home to take a test for the municipal police force. McCarthy traded the stocky Ro sar to Cleveland for Roy Weather-ly and Oscar Grimes, two athletes who have departed from the New York scene. Another player whom MacPhail covets is Phil Marchildon of the Philadelphia Athletics. The Yankee president was greatly impressed with the Canadian-born pitcher after Marchildon returned from a European prisoner-of-war camp to rack up 13 victories for the last-place Mackmen last season. Tacoma Blanked TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 29 TUP) The Seattle Ironmen blanked the Tacoma Rockets, 5-0, in a northern division Pacific Coast Ice Hockey League game before 2,000 fans at the ice Palace tonight. Jolmny Price (Continued from Page 14) and advanced on Tuckalo Correa s sacrifice. After Sol Recca flied to short, Keller lifted a high pop fly which got away from third base man Dick Kashiwaeda. On tb play Wasa scored. Russian Cabral singled to left and Fred Ramie followed with an infiled hit to load the bases. Clarence Neves and Jim Oxley both received free passes to force across the final two markers. The Sox salvaged a run in the ninth when Hide Yamashita walked with the bags clogged. Whitey Jenkins, who replaced Feller, was credited with the victory. He allowed only one hit In two innings. Tom Kameda took Chandler's place and also gave out but a single bingle. . The game was well played with neither side guilty of an error. Jim Oxley at short for the Rurals scintillated in six chances Keller was the leading slicker with three for three. Cabral lashed out a pair of safties while Musial was best for the losers with two hits in four attempts. Shortly before the game got underway, a short ceremony was held at which time gifts were presented the major league stars from the local fans. Mark Egan of the Hawaii Visitors Bureau did the honors with Chappie Chapman as emcee. Leis were also given to Chandler, Musial and Keller, the trio slated to leave today for the mainland. All the players received koa canoes while Mrs. "Feller was presented a beautiful calabash The Fellers and Price will remain here a few more days. The box score: REP SOX Await Clarification Of Southern School's Racial Protest RENO. Nev.. Oct. 29 (UP) Dr. John Mosely, president of the Uni versity of Nevada, today issued a terse no comment to reports that his school was considering cancel lation of a game with Mississippi State because Nevada's two star Negro players would be barred. The game Is scheduled to . be played at Starkville, Miss., Nov. 16 and according to a letter received from the southern school, the two Negroes could not be allowed on the field. Coach Allyn McKeen of Missis sippi State also refused to com ment on the report, but the University of Nevada Board of Ath letic Control was scheduled to meet later this week to discuss cancellation of the game. m m m It was reported here that the majority of members on the Nevada Board of Athletic Control favor cancellation of the game if Mississippi State insisted that the Negroes would be barred. Student sentiment also was said to favor calling off the game. The two Negro stars of the Nevada team are Halfback William (Black) Bass, and Horace Glllom, a big end who is receiving mention for All-Coast honors. Further complicating the in creasingly tense situation was the fact that President Mosely nas accented an invitation to be prin cipal speaker at the inauguration of Mississippi btate's new president the night before the game. : Nevada Graduate Manager Jo seph T. McDonnell said today that the Board of Athletic Control was awaiting Mississippi State's reply to a letter sent from here asking clarification of the letter received from the southern school. The board will hold a meeting when we receive Mississippi State's answer," McDonnell said, "and at that time we will decide whether the game will be can celled." The original letter to Nevada of ficials from Mississippi State as serted that the president of the southern college had been "del uged" with letters and telephone calls asking whether the two col ored stars would be allowed to play at Starkville. W W .: That letter, written by C. R. Noble, athletic director of Mississippi State, also said that participation of the two Negro players in the game would lead to "an unfortunate commotion," McDonnell said. Meanwhile, the controversy became the topic of editorials in several of the state's newspapers this week. One paper, noting the "hints. . , are accompanied by murder threats," suggested that Mississippi State be Invited to play the inter-sectional game here. Members of Nevada's husky football team, with a forward line averaging 200 pounds, openly fa vored playing the game with Bass and Gillom and "seeing wnat Kino of an unfortunate commotion Mis sissippi State wants to start.
