THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1954 SLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Now, 01 Perf esser Says By HARRY GKAYSON NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK — (NEA),, — Charles Dillon Stengel gives you a fresh slant on the head aches in Brooklyn. "Them fellas (the Dodgers) spent too much time looking at the wrong club," said Casey Stengel. Now that the Old Perfessor finally has established complete supremacy over the National League via his All-Star Game triumph, it seemed a good time to get his line on the other circuit's two-horse race. Tigers Regain Lead in Pony Old Rivals, Rams, Fall Before Hot Batting, 11-5 By SAM NORRIS - The Tigers and the Rams, Martins and McCoys of the Pony League, resumed their old feud at Compress Field Wednesday afternoon with the Tigers getting the best end of a 11-5 score, This hectic win put the Tigers back in the league lead with eight wins and one loss, against seven and two for the second place Rams, a condition not likely to inspire peace and harmony when •+ <; The Yankees, snorted manager Stengel. "All winter long I hear them fellas talk- in' about the Yankees. That was all th^re was in their heads. "We got- ta beat the Yankees in the World Series.' "How did they know the Yankees would be there in October to be beaten? How did j ' they know when I , don't even know c ?sey now. these next meet. The game offered plenty of action, not all of it good-natured. There was some seventh-inning rhubarb over a disputed decision at first base, but fortunately the play did not affect the final outcome. More Power The Tigers won by the simple process of superior firepower anc sharp rifling by Pitcher Ed Moore who fanned nine and held the us ually hard-hitting Rams to eigh sound blows. These included con , secutive triples by Bill Haney and David Barnes. Haney, charged with the loss had a disastrous first inning in which he faced 11 batters who swarmed in with five runs on four hits. Moore also -started shakily facing seven Rams who got three on four hits. Scorekeeper Bill Williams sketched goose eggs with complete impartiality for the next three in, nings, until Haney got into hot water in the fifth. Bill Wyatt, who had four hits for the day, singled, stole second and went to third on an error. Homer Counts Three Then when big Bo Huffman stepped up wielding a bat the size of a wagon tongue he must have looked like a colossal symbol of doom to the diminutive figure on the mound. Never one to disappoint, Bo powered a home run into the purple shade of a distant chinaberry tree and two runs scored while two thirds of the Ram outfield organized a search and rescue mission. Jerry Lutz, who had an earlier triple and single, again hit, safely and wound up on third as result of two wild pitches. Jimmy Hall wheedled a walk and stole second. At this point Manager Caldwell assigned Joe- Bratcher to the mound. Joe struck out Kelly and pounced on Jimmy Young's weak roller to retire the side unassisted. Both clubs scored twice in the seventh, the Tigers on consecutive singles by Wyatt and Huffman, the Rams on fielding and throwing miscuos. Tigers AB E H PO A E Slayton, 3b 4 1 1 0 0 OJ Moore, p 5 Wyatt, ss 5 2212 3402 "Those fellas lost sight of the main event. They forgot about their own league. "And when they should have been catchin' on that they were in trouble, they got worse instead of better. They're not foolin' me I watch that other league. I know what's goin' on. . __"And I'll tell you something else. Tney ain't gonna catch that fella now." This opinion could go down alongside Charley Dressen's famous crack of 1953: "The Giants is dead." What The Perfesser means with his momentous remark is that the j the Dodgers are not going to catch Leo Durocher and the Giants this trip. # * * "THAT DUROCHER AIN'T foolin' me, neither. He's got some pretty good players, gets execution. They win the close ones late and pulling 'em out of the fire. That Durocher knows how to use pinch-hitters. "That pitcher they got. He's a pretty good pitcher. They say left-han- ders don't beat Brooklyn. Well, this one did. Beat 'em pretty good, too, didn't he?" Stengel, the greatest triple-talker ever to come out of Kansas City, was referring to Johnny Antonelli. "And while the Brooklyns were talking about the Yankees," Ol' Case went on, "that old geezer is cranking up his arm all winter long, probably stickin' it under, the falls where he.lives, and he comes back just ready for anything." . Stengel, about to 'celebrate his 63rd birthday and getting' richer by the minute, was citing the case of Salvatore Maglie of Niagara Falls. Rotary Socked By Kiwanis, 12-4 Big Second Inning Gives Winners All Edge Necessary The little 'Kiwanians used the liberal offerings of Tommy Smith and Curt Branscum, together with a timely batting attack to gain an easy 12-4 victory over Rotary's Little League entry yesterday afternoon' at Compress Park. In the first two innings the Rotarians gave promise of a real battle, scoring one run in the first and two in the second, after the roof had practically caved in on them during the Kiwanis' half of the second. Inability of the Rotary hurlers to discover the home platter was largely responsible for their downfall, as Smith and Branscum together gave up a total of 12 free ;ickets to first. Smith, highly prized chunker of ;he Rotarians, started on the hill but was relieved after one and one-third innings by Branscum, who tossed a very creditable game until the sixth, when wildness Drought Smith from first base back to the mound.* The Kiwanians also used two lurlers, starting Billy Jones, who was quickly chased to cover by 'Jerk" Hodges' first-pitch home' as against only two by the win- E FOR EFFORT —-Russians put everything they have into it in the Workers' Sport Federation Festival in Helsinki.

(NEA) Bear Bryant By PAT HARMON NEA Special .Correspondent LEXINGTON, Ky. — (NEA) — One of the reasons behind Bear Bryant's leaving Kentucky was the way his recruiting policy backfired, \ Bryant had announced Kentucky would have no further interest in out-of- state football- players. In compensation, Bryant hoped the state university would get every one of the good prospects from Kentucky high schools. The compensation did not materialize. Some good Kentucky boys still went away from home. A particular loss was Paul Hornung, No. 1 Kentucky high school player in 1952. Hornung went to Notre Dame. As told to Harry Grayson It is best for an ordinary golfer to leave the 2 and 3 irons alone. Only good players should employ them. The 4 wood, as noted before, is the club for the average player. This is because the irons do not have the hitting surface of the* wood. They are straight-faced, i tough to use. The 2 and 3 are power irons. You still use a full body turn and shoot off the left heel, If you give the 2 and 3 irons 3. whirl, figure 220 yards for the distance you'll gee from the 2 and 200 from the 3. The 2 and 3 irons have little loft. They must be gripped firmer than the wood or the force of the clubhead striking the ball will turn the club in your hands. Cards Waste 10 Base Hits / / LSI 1 Redbirds Have Been Shut Out Three Times This Year That made the score even "between Bryant and Notre Dame. It was one apiece. Several years earlier, Bryant cor- raled Gene Donaldson, a line prospect Notre Dame coveted. If matters were even then, they're 2-1 now in favor of Bryant. There was an item in the papers in March that Joe Oujesky, Texas' finest high school tackle, had decided to enroll at Notre Dame. There was an item in the papers again the other day about Joe. It said Joe had changed his mind. He will enter Texas A. and M., where Bryant now coaches. Bear Bryant has a keen and enduring memory. even hits, while Rotary had eight iut the Kiwanis' cause was great- y aided by the twelve free tickets ffered by Smith and Branscum, " -BEAT THE YANKEES!' them Brooklyn guys said," Professor Stengel went on, "and they forgot about the guy in center field. Seems to me he's worry enough by himself." He means Willie Mays. "Then the other outfielder who nearly beats us alone in the last World Series they was in. He comes around pretty good during the win- ;er. He figured to. But do they worry about him? No! They talk abotu the Yankees. Well, you can bet they're talking about him now." This time Casey's words were di rected to Monte Irvin, his broker ankle completly healed, and swatt ng home runs and batting .467 sine- lis rest. "Them fellas were looking at the wrong club," reiterated Casey Sten •el, "and they ain't gonna catch ;hat fella now." run and successive singles by Tex Turner and Ronnie Huey. Coach John McDowell immediately pulled a shift, bringing Stalings to the hill, Bruce to first and sending Jones to short. Stallings struck out the side. In the Kiwanis' second, Robert Hallman led off with a walk, McDowell fanned, Tommy Seay drew a pass and Nate Austin popped a bunt just beyond the clutching fingers of catcher Jerry Coleman to fill the sacks. Jones walked, forcing in one run and Stallings whiffed. With two away, Jimmy Bruce singled sharply to center and came all the way home when Reid permitted the ball to trickle between his ankles. Rotary responded with two in the bottom of the inining on Danny Smothers' safe bunt, a throwing error by Stallings on Lendennie's bunt. Both scored a few plays later when Hodegs' bounder got hung in the webbiog of Jones' glove. Kiwanis scored singletons in the 3rd and 4th but had a big gift inning in the sixth, when they registered four runs on one hit, four passes, an error and a fielder's choice. The winners garnered a total of ning pitchers. Kiwanis AB Austin, rf 3 Jones, p-ss-lb 3 Stallings, Ib-p 4 Bruce, ss-Ib 4 Polsgrove, 2b 1 Webb, 3b ".. 4 Hallman, cf 3 J.
