The Yankees, rumbling along on I of the Worid Series against Brook-t- eight-game winning streak, can claim their sixth banner in seven seasons with a victory in either the day or night portion of a double header at Boston. And they can "do it without that if the Indians drop their afternoon game at Detroit.

But with quarterback Jack Klrkpatrick, the circuit's most valuable of 1951, recovered trom an ankle injury and teaming with twice All-Conference fullback Jim Sides, the split T ba,ckfield should again be potent.

Marda/io P/ans Another Title Defense in Jane By MURRAY ROSE : NEW YORK (AP) — Heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano will be back in action next June. The possible victims include Cuba's Nino Valdes, hulking Bob Baker of Pittsburgh, Hurricane Tomjny Jackson of New York or Floyd Patterson, the once-beaten Olympic champion of Brooklyn. The invincible Brockton Blaster,, having earned half a million dollars for his ninth-round knockout of Archie Moore in a spectacular brawl Wednesday night, has decided to go after a few more helpings. It may not be as much aa he earned with the colorful, cocky light heavyweight boss, but it figures plenty the way theater television is advancing by leaps and bounds. Moore Wants New Try Moore, who was knocked down four times and h^d his right eye shut, said he wants another crack at the rock-ribbed, steel-jawed Marciano but it is doubtful if the return will be made. Too many people remember what happened to Ezzard Charles in his second fight with Rocky after their thrilling first bout. The 2u-year-oid Patterson doesn't seem a likely choice soon either. Now the No. "1 contender for Archie's 175-pound crown, the fast-punching youngster is being groomed as a heavyweight threat lor 195T. Baker may be the next choice. Winner of nine straight, including a decision over Valdes, the 28- year-old, 6-3, 210-pounder had been ticketed for a title shot before Moore's clamor and his wins over Valdes and Carl CBobo) Olson got Archie his chance. Valdes, another «-3 husky, zoomed back into the picture by stopping England's Don Cockell in three rounds in London Sept. 13. It helped atone for two straight defeats by Moore and Bob Satter- field. Jackson, a freakish fighter with unlimited stamina, could barge his way into the spot. A nonstop punch- tr but lacking in power, the 23- year old, 6-2, 195-pounder has won eight straight since he was stopped in two rounds by Valdes 14 months ago. Manager A! Weill, in naming Valdes, Baker, Jackson and at- terson as possible June opponents, said also he had received an offer for Rocky to box Italy's Franco Caviccht, Europe's heavyweight champion, in Italy. There's not chance Weill will permit Rocky to risk his crown outside the United States. In announcing his decision to keep fighting, the 31-year-old Marciano told newsmen at a press conference, "I have no thought of retiring at the present time." Explaining his postfight statements in the Yankee Stadium dressing room, Rocky declared, "AH I said last night was that a few people would like me to stop, a few friends."
