THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1958 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS PAGE THIRTEEN Outlook for Brooklyn Dreary As Odds for Yanks Go to 9-5 Br JOK REICHLER NEW YORK (AP) — Dreary indeed was the Brooklyn outlook today as the Dodgers, striving to win their first world championship, again came to grips with their nemesis New York Yankees in the second game of the 1955 World Series. Downed in yesterday's opener by a left-hander, the kind . they've blasted all over the National League during the regular season, the Dodgers faced the same southpaw dose today. Yankee Manager Casey Stengel, encouraged by lefty Whitey Ford's victory despite an admittedly mediocre pitching per* \ * * formance. came right back with Tommy Byrne (16-5). Manager Walter Alston of the Dodgers was shaken somewhat by the Yankees' savage, home run barrage that .blasted his ace right bander Don Newcombe off the nil and powered them to a 6-5 victory But he decided to entrust Billy Loes (10-4), another right-hander with the "get even" assignment. Fair and sunny weather was pre dieted. Mantle Still Out With one game in the bag, the odus went up on the Yankees to make it six straight series victor ies over the Dodgers. The Ameri can League champions are now 9-5 to take all the marbles and 6-5 to take today's game despite the continued absence of Mickey Man * * * Bitter Feud Brewing BetweenMartin,Campy NEW YORK (#>)— A bitter feud is developing between Brooklyn catcher Roy Campanella and New York second baseman Billy Martin and if they happen to come in contact with each other in today's second World Series game, it wouldn't surprise anyone to see them conje up swinging. It all started when Martin proclaimed a couple of days ago that Campy was gun shy—that is. he fell,back on contact plays, Cam- js'anella. laughed that one off, but when Martin tried to steal home Unsuccessfully in the Yanks' open- .ing 6-5 victory yesterday, the Brock catcher really got annoyed. - r - "Any time that shrimp thinks he's going to run over me, little "as he \s, I'll .break even- bone in his body," growled the usually amiable Campy. "Just let him take two steps toward me and I'll take care of him. He's been too smart for too long," When Martin came out of the dust Alter being tagged out, he made a threatening gesture toward Campanella, but Roy was on his way to the dugout by then, so it didn't mean anything. "If it had been a regular season game Insead of a world series, I'd have punched him in the nose," snarled the scrappy Martis, "That was the second time he hit me in the neck with a tag." Martin was referring to an inci- den in the '53 series when he ran into Campy, only to be tagged out. Appraised of Martin's remarks, Campanella grunted: "I missed tagging him where I wanted to by about three inches. I'd like to have tagged him in the teeth." Washington End Voted AP Lineman of Week By TED MEIER NEW YORK. «*—Minnesota was a' two-touchdown favorite over Washington last Saturday, but the. ; underdog 1 Huskies chalked up a! • 30-0 upset sparked by the superb! play of veteran end Jim Houston.' For his smashing performance Houston, a 6:1 senior, was named today as football lineman of the week by the Associated Press. Minnesota was on the Washington six early in the game when Houston made the first of his many alert plays thai put the Gophers back on their heels for the rest of the game. Minnesota's Don Sfrnnson faded back to pass, but Houston brofce through, blocked 1 the attempted aerial, grabbed the bail in the air and ran 54 yards to the Minnesota 34. This set up a 27-yard field goal by Dean Derby. Before the game was over Houston hsd scored two touchdowns himself. He caught a 4-yard pass for the first and fell on a wild Minnesota pitchout in the end zone for the second. Kramer Sparkles Another end, Ron Kramer of j Michigan, played a hangup gamej against Missouri and " p as a close: runnerup to Houston. 1 Kramer, a 6:3 junior, caught three touchdown passes (14, 22, 12 yards) and kicked 5-of-5 extra points as Michigan romped to a 42-7 triumph, Missouri Coach Don Faurot asserted "Kramer is the greales end I've ever seen and I've seen ninny of them. We couldn't cove him when we knew they were go ing ;o pass to him." Chuck Yonkers, of Tulsa, alsc was nominated for top lineman honors.

"We'// Be H«rt Tomorrow to Back-Up Wnot Wt Soy Today" . . N. H!way61 Ph.2-2142 He from the starting lineup. The ailing center fielder, still unable to run hard, on his lorti right thigh, reported after a light workout before yesterday's game that he didn't think he'd play at all in the series. Yesterday's 63,8611 cash customers saw a whale of a game. Five home runs were blasted by both sides, one 'short of the record for one game. Three of them were hit by the Yankees, two by first baseman Joe Collins and one by left fielder Elston Howard. They drove in all but one of the Yankee runs. Newcombe, Brooklyn's pride and only 20-game winner, was the victim of all New York's homers and runs and all but one of their nine hits before finally shuffling off the mound in the sixth inning. Only Argument Ford was the winner, but he was no ball of fire either. The compact little 18-game winner was tagged for nine of Brooklyn's 10 safeties, including home runs by Carl Fur- illo and Duke Snider. He also issued four passes but was good enough when he had to be except in the eighth inning when the Dodgers struck back for two runs to cut the Yankees' lead to one run. The last Brooklyn run was an electrifying steal of home by Jackie Robinson that ignited the only real argument of the afternoon. Yankee catcher Yogi Berra argued Plate Umpire Bill Summer's decision, Insisting he had tagged Robinson but the American League umpire stood firm. The turning point of the game came in the fourth inning. With two on and one out, Yankee Billy Martin made a dazzling stop of Pee Wee Reese's wicked smash to his left and turned it into a double play. Ford, who now has a 2-1 series record, retired the side in order in the sixth and sevenih but after weathering a storm in the eighth, was removed by Stengel. Bob Grim sealed the victory with a scoreless ninth. Collins Got Off Hitless Hook With Pair of Clutch Homers By WILL GRIMSLEY NEW YORK (AP) — A three-year nightmare turned into a golden dream for Joe Collins, the thin, sinewy part-time first baseman of the New York Yankees. His two mighty home runs sent the Yankees off to a 6-5 opening day victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers yesterday and erased some of the harrowing memories of his total "bu? 1 " in a similar series in 1952. In that series against Brooklyn Collins went bitless in 12 times at bat and struck out (our times in one game with Carl Erskine pitch- ins. "This sort of lets me off the hook, 1 ' said the 32-year-old veteran, a Yankee hanger-on in recent years. "It's a wonderful feeling." His batting average in four world series is .148. In two he went hitless. Tor the 1955 season he batted .234. Hunch Play Manager Casey Stengel, a "hunch" man, said he played Collins in the latter stages oi the season only "because we had a winning streak going and I didn't want to break up the combination." Stengel said in one of the last games at Washington, when the Yankees were attempting to naii down the pennant, he started to take Collins out of a game. Buti then, noticing three good Washington hitters coming to bat, he changiid his mind and kept Collins in "for defensive purposes." "Then Joe hit a triple that helped us win the game,'' Casey added, "I was a hero but I got In through the side door." Casey proved the same sort of hero yesterday in using Collins against big, (right-handed) Don Newcombe. Under his two-platoon system, Stengel uses Bill Skowron against lefties. Never Sure I may still substitute for Collins against left-handers," Stengel said, "but I've got confidence in Joe. He can hit good pitchers." Collins went to New York from Kansas City in 1949. With the Yankees he's never been solidly a star, sure of his position. There have been rumors that he'd be traded off. Collins is unconcerned. "That's part of the game," he says. "These rumors don't worry me none." But as long as Stengel rides high with the Yankees, Collins is sure of his job, the boys say. Stengel likes guys who come through in a clutch—and Collins is one of !he best of these. Patterson Fights Whitlock Tonight SAN FRANCISCO Wp)— Floyd Patterson, 20-year-old contender for aging Archie Moore's light heavyweight crown, meets Dave Whitlock of Oakland, Calif, in a 10-round match tonight. Paterson has suffered only one setback in 25 starts— a disputed loss to Joey Maxim. The Brooklyn boxer is heavily favored to whip Whitlock, no \von a comeback and No. 9 contender in the light-heavy ranks. Boyd Decisions Fullmer in Close Chicago Fight CHICAGO (y?>—The windy ctty f which hasn't produced a title contender in the ring since the day* of Johnny Bratton, may have oo« in middleweight Bobby Boyd. Boyd, a lanky 21-year-old Nepro was in the ring at Chicago Stadium last night with stubby Gen* Fullmer, 23, a ranking middleweight from West Jordan, Utah* and carried oi'f a well earned unanimous 10-round decision, Boyd, outweighed his vicious- swinging' foe IGIJ'4 pounds to 155. Referee Tony Zale favored Boyd 97-96, Judge Harold MarovlU 9794 and Judge Lou Capperillo &*• 94. It was only the second loss absorbed by Fullmer in 33 fights. He ran into'a Boyd left in th» third round and went down. Zal« picked up the count and continued to the mandatory eight, but Fullmer bounced up immediately and it appeared at ringside to have been more of a slip. Otherwise, neither fighter was decked by * blow. ITS THE WILDEST PRICE PANICrfKITYS EVER SEEN I DIAMONDS! WATCHES! JEWELRY!
