FACE EIGHT (ARK.)' COURIER HETTS MONDAT, SEPTEMBER B, 1955 Big Lake Area WorkDelayed By Tampering Work to improve water conditions in the Big Lake area has been delayed for some time, because of tampering with a water control pipe from the Floodway into the state public shooting area, it was learned today. The pipe had been closed recent- i Holder of the game and fish com- ly in an effort to dry up the area j mission, said they hoped to begin equipment could" be used on j early phases of the work in a few some 'work planned by the state Game and Fish Commission. The gate had been umvired and the area flooded again as a result of Lhe tampering, and some of the work, will be delayed until Use area can be drained again. The pipe, which was nstalled to help raise the water level in the area between the Floodway and the new barpii, normally carries water from the Floodway into a ditch which in turn leads into the North- South ditch. Immediate plans of the Game and Fish Commission call for setting in two more 48 inch pipes from the Floodway through the levee to nelp raise the water level in the duck shooting area. j Contract for this project already | has been lei to a Paragould iirm. ' but work cannot begin until the area is temporarily drained. A letter received here from T. H. days, but he asked that the area be kept as dry "so that we can complete our development work as quickly as possible." "This will probably be the List year in which we want the area to stay dry so that we can do velopment work," Holder pointed out. SF, Eagles Look Good Both Win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers, who made strong bids for divisional honors in the National Football League last year, are indicating they'll once more be worthy contenders for championship honors. The Eagels, with their alternating quarterbacks Bobby Thomason and Adrian Burke tossing the pigskin with deadly accuracy, have won all four of their exhibition games. Teh latest was a 24-10 decision over the Green Bay Packers at Charleston, W. Va., Saturday night. The 49ers also whipped the Chicago Cardinals 43-7 yesterday on their home, field for their fourth victory in five exhibitions.. Their lone setback was by the New York Giants.

Indians Back in Lead Narleski Saves Pair; Boomed For MVP Award By JOE REtCHLER The Associated Press The Cleveland Indians, back in first place today, were booming Ray Narleski, their brilliant relief ace, for the American League's most valuable player award and the records back them up. Not since Jim Konstanty captured the National League's coveted award in 1950 has a relief pitcher earned such an honor. No American League fireman ever accomplished the feat, Narleski enhanced his chances yesterday with a pair of excellent rescue jobs as the Indians swept a doubleheader from Chicago by the same 5-3 scores to burst into first place by a half game over the New York Yankees. The twin defeats dropped the White Sox into third place, a game and a half behind the Indians. Yanks, Bosox Win The Yankees subdued Washington 8-3 to move ahead of Chicago and the fourth place Boston Red Sox remained only i'our games off the pace with a 5-4 triumph over Baltimore. Detroit overpowered Kansas City 17-1 with a 20-hit r.t- tack. Brooklyn's pennant-bound Dodgers made it three in a row over Pittsburgh with a 6-5 victory to, retain their 14-game advantage over Milwaukee, a 5-2 victor over Cincinnati. New York's Giants moved past Philadelphia into third place by one percentage point with a 7-4 victory over the Phillies and Chicago downed St. Louis 4-3 to climb within a half game of the fifth place Redlegs. Bob Lemon won his 16th and Mike Garcia his 10th for Cleveland but it was Narleski who preserved their victories for them. The 24- year-old righthander hurled two socreless innings in the opener and came back to pitch runless relief aall through 3 1-3 innings of the htcap. He yielded three hits, struck out five and walked none in his two stints. 53 Appearances Narleski, who split six decisions MORE HORSES-—Terry Brennan, center, gets better acquainted with four All-Americarx high school football stars who will play for Notre "Dame. They are, left to right, Bronko Nagurski,. Jr. International Falls, Minn.; Angclo Mosca, Waltham, Mass.; Frank Geremia, Sacramento; and Jim Just, Milwaukee. Coach Brennan saw them in the All-American prep game in Memphis. Young Nagurski is the son of the one-tinip Minnesota and Chicago Bear great. his freshman season i now has appeared in 53 1954, of his team's 135 games.

Mickey Mantle sparked the Yan- Leo Suspends Antonelii Indefinitely Without Pay NEW YORK (AP) — Johnny Antonelli, the New York Giants' ace lefthander, was under indefinite suspension without pay today following a run-in with Manager Leo Durocher in the middle of a game wth Philadelphia last Saturday night. Durocher today indicated the breach was a serious one. Asked whether Antonelli would be reinstated if he were to apologize for j game, his actions, the Giant skipper said: ! cher -Antonelli was suspended after he put on a display of temper on the mound when taken out of the '"I won't answer that. All I'll right now is he'd better change his attitude. I've enough of his nonsense." kees to their victory, siamming his 37th homer with two men aboard in the first to pave the was' for Bob Turley's 14th triumph. Bill Skowron's bases-loaded single highlighted the Yankees' three-run rally in the fifth. The Cubs rallied for three runs in the eighth to nose out the Cardinals. Walker Cooper's pinch double, a run-scoring single by Dee Fondy and Frank Baumholtz' sacrifice fly accounted for the winning rally. Loser Willard Schmidt had a perfect game until Baumholtz doubled with two out in the seventh. Porks Face Tough Course FAYETTEVILLE — Regular classes may not be scheduled at Arkansas until September 1;V—but for- some 65 Razorback grklders classroom wurk has almuly .started 1 and the course is a stiff one. Many people get the idea that the call for practice to start on September 1 meanr only hour? upon hours of grinding physical work where sweat and bruises are the final results. That's a distorted picture of a football day. The real progress Is made in classrooms where in front of the critical eye of a line or brickfield coach each player must demonstrate techniques and fit the drop of a hat be able to give blocking assignments in over a dbzen plays and against 'our or five defense?. Take thje four quarterbacks for example. Ball handling ;mri r.-vcn the hard knocks (m the iooibnl! practice field HIT the easiest port of the day for ihem. For 10 days they're up at 5:45 for g pre- two-hour practice. They're then given ahum om.- hour to shrnvfr, drc'iss, C ;n then- breakfast and report back to Coach Mitchc-11 i'or a lengthy blackboard session. Mistakes in the chissroom are allowed—but not to the point of repetition. Mitchell is thorough, very exacung and encourages ox- tensive questicm-and-answer pan- els with his quarterbacks. His students—George Walker, Rison; Buddy Benson. DeQueen; Don Christum, Searcy; and Glen Wood, Smackover—probably won't have a tougher course to study all fall. Most important of all, they'll be graded by thousands of paying customers every weekend. Their report card will be published in the sports pages of Sunday morning newspapers for everyone to see. How does the average player reuct to this training? Well, it's a man-.Mzed responsibility oftentimes thrust upon n teen-ager. One session with the quarterbacks and you're convinced .that there's mure to football than meets the eye. The amount of memory work involving defense, game situations, play assignments and field positions given them would stagger a mathematics professor. "Pootbnll is just like a lot of {.liL'ir courses in college," says Mil'chell. "it could easily be divided into separate classroom .studies—and extended over a three-year period. No matter how hard this group of quarterbacks _ work, there will be plenty they '•• won't know about (he spIii-T and its po&ftibiltiei; after they graduate."' There's no question but that the heart of the T-offense is the quarterback, "We're very fortun- ate U> have a fine group of boys that are willing to study and work hard," says Mitchell, "because our success this year will be based to a great extent upon how much they learn every week." Personnel-wise, Mitchell is already concentrating his energies on about four full teams of men —with another 20 or so working out as a "T" team. The latter will provide the opponent's offense during the 1955 season. The formation of these four teams is designed not to create a first, second and third team; but rather four groups that will stay together for practice purposes. Game alignment will come later— after the coaches have had a good look at a scrimmage or two. As it now stands, the starting line-up for the opening game against Tulsa will probably be formed soon after the scrimmage game of September 10. Although sophomores are making a notable appearance in the fa!! prac- "f* 1 tice already, lettermen are front- running Jor those starting berths at every position. There was every evidence that Mitchell was devoting extra effort on his defense in the early practice days. Pass defense came in for heavy scrutiny on the very first day and the earliest contact drills involved defensive work against the "T" team. Offensive work was confined drills" at the start. to "dummy Gilbow Shifted to Guard Some shifting; was in evidence in the first few days of the fall practice. Most of it was brought about by injuries to a pair ol tackles of the summer. Booneville'.s Jay Dona than has been moved from center to tackle and back Billy Gilbow of Blytheville is now working out as a yuard. Buddy Benson, a halfback last spring, is running at quarterback as mentioned, but that comes as no secret to those who saw him as a high schooler for DeQueen. Mitchell, who earned his tarns as a player in the Sooner State, regards his first two non-conference rivals as "tough and in a bad mood for the Roorbacks." The Porkers open with Tulsa on September 17 here and then meet Oklahoma A&M in Little Rock. then complained to Duro- .bout "being mishandled'' and threatened to "go back home and stay there." Antonelli Disappointing The 27-year-old pitcher, from Rochester, N.Y. a 21-game win- ne.' and World Series star last year has been a big 1 disappointment this -season. He has an 11-16 record with 10 complete games in 31 stnrts and owns a sub-par 4.46 earned run average. The trouble started when Coach Fred Fitzsimmons, on instructions from Durocher, strode out to the mound to take Antonelli out in the fifth inning- of the game against the Phillies. The Giants were leading 3-2. Antonelli had struck out Richie Ashburn, the lirst batter, but Bobby Morgan doubled and Granny Hamiier walked. When Fitz came out to tell An- toi.elli he had enough, Johnny stalked around the mound, threw down the resin bag several times and acted reluctant to relinquish the ball to the incoming Ramon Monzant. John Meets Leo When h e" reached the bench, Johnny grabbed his jacket in an: angry motion .and Went down the steps leading to the clubhouse. That's where he met Durocher. I was aware that Johnny was After all, the season has only three weeks to go so I figured to get out of the way. What I wouldn't see wouldn't hurt me. "However, I heard the crowd buzzing and knew what was up. The next thing I knew Johnny was coming down the runway muttering something about being mishandled and threatening: to take the 10:30 train home. Even then 1 tried not to get angry. As .he passed me I stopped him and asked: 'What's wrong. John? "1 Hart Good Stuff" "He answered 'why did you take me out? I had good stuff. That's the way it's been all year. I'm taking the 10:30 train home tonight and I won't be back tomorrow.'" Durocher went on. "I still remained calm. T explained to him that he hadn't exactly been throwing aspirin tablets up there and that the Phillies weren't exactly hitting bunts off him. I told him 25 guys can't manage a ball club and I also added, 'no, John, you can go into the clubhouse and take off that uniform and catch the 10:30 train. You're suspended indefinitely without pay'." ' Durocher said he immediately telephoned Horace Stoncham and explained the circumstances to the president of the Giants. "Horace said I was to do whatever I thought best and that he would buck me up in anything I did" Leo said.
