Confident Rigney Predicts 'New Era' for the Giants NKW JOK KKICIII.KK YORK (AP) — Billy Rigney, a fat two-year contract in his pocket, a smile on his thin, ^aunt-looking face and a world of confidence in his voice, forecast today a "new era" for the New York Giants. The graying, bespectacled, 37- year-oki .successor to Leo Durocher refused to say whether he thought the Giants would improve their third-place finish in 1956 but he promised a hustling, youth-studded team that would ^ive tiie rest ot the National League a battle. "I haven't seen much of the league for the past two years," said Riyney. who successfully led the Minneapolis Millers to the pennant and Little World Series championship in his second year at the helm, of tile Giants' American Assn. farm club. "But I'll have to Packers, Colts Clash For NFL Top Position MILWAUKEE (AP) — There'll be a stranger atop the Western Conference standings of the National Football League tomorrow night. It'll be either ths Green Bay Packers or the Baltimore Colts—a couple of teams Ignored in preseason calculations—who put their 2-0 records to the test at County Stadium. ^ Right now they're sharing the division lead with the Los Angeles Rams, who don't get into action until Sunday at Detroit. More than 35.000 tickets had been sold by Thursday for the Colt-Packer clash. Saturday night's clash will be the first Wisconsin appearance of Alan i The Horse i Ameche as a pro. "The Horse" was an All- America fullback at the University of Wisconsin last year and used to do most of his galloping at Madison, about 80 miles west of County Stadium.

Rocky Marciano's next victim, meets Utah's pudgy Rex Layne tonight in a nationally televised 10- rounder from Olympia Stadium. N. B. C. will carry the bout at 8 p. m. CST. Here's One Yank Who Finished First HOLLYWOOD !.Tl—Infielder Andy Carey, who came off second best as a New York Yankee against the Brooklyn Dodgers, was the first choice today of film actress Lucy Marlow. The couple, married yesterday in the Hollywood First Methodist Church, were en route to San Francisco, where they win Join members of the Yankees and their families for a trip to Tokyo. The Bronx Bombers play a series of exhibition games in Japan. Notre Dame. No. 5 team In the' country, will be tested first in a 9, Augusta, Ga.—Bobby Lane, 155, Orange Bowl, with a record crowd of 75,800 expected to see if Miami's football buildup, with this Hame specifically in mind, can be brought to a successful climax. An even larger, but no less anxious, crowd Is in prospect in Ann Arbor, Mich., tomorrow, where 97,239 will see Army try to win its sixth straight from Michigan in a series that has been bitterly fought despite the Cadets- victory every time thus far. The game, a pick 'em affair, shapes up as a battle between army's Eastern powerhouse, rated sixth) nationally, and Michigan, hailed as the best in the West and ranked second nationally. While counting the receipts of tonight's sellout, Orange Bowl officials may be listening tomorrow for returns from, of all places, the Cotton Bowl, where powerful Oklahoma, with 21 straight victories, meets old rival Texas in an annual scrap. If the Sooners can get past Texas, as they're favored to. then the Orange Bowl can look forward with good reason to a battle of undefeated titans on New Year's Day, Oklahoma vs. Maryland. After tomorrow. Oklahoma plays only Big Seven teams, which haven't beaten their perennial conference champion in nine years, and Oklahoma A&M. Maryland, the naiton's top-ranked team, is over the toughest part of its schedule and starts mopping up operations tomorrow against Wake Forest. Duke.

Wisconsin, which looks like the main threat to Michigan in the Big Ten after an impressive victory over Iowa, 'goes against Purdue in the top Midwest game of the day. Pitt and Navy meet at Baltimore in a clash of the East's top independent teams. SHAWNEE INDIANS — Shown above is the 1955 edition of the Shawnee Indians of Coach R. C. Trussell and Coach Hefner.

Army to Michigan Proves College Game Out in N. Y. By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor J NEW YORK — (NEA) — While mighty Michigan was beating Michigan State in a photo j finish before 97,239. Army was engineering another sell-out at Ann Arbor. The Cadets going to Michigan Stadium further stresses the non-existence of college toot-' ball in New York. . ; go along with the others in picking Minneapolis In mldseason, will b« Brooklyn as the team to beat. You can't iindere.stimale a world champion. I think however, we'll give them a run for it and try not, to let them get off to a big jump, ^ they did this year." Pitching, Infield At a press conference. Rigney discussed his plans for the Ciams '56. He said the pitching staff and the iniield. will give him his 1 biggest headache. "This is a new era," he said. 'I would like to go with young players, if I can. I'd like a whole new picture in the pitching staff. I have several newcomers in mind who I think have a good chance to make it. One is Allan Worthington, who did a wonderful job for me in Minneapolis. ... I also like Ramon Monzant, who pitched fine ball for me before the Giants recalled him last summer.' 1 Rigney named outfielders Willie Mays, Don Mueller, and shortstop Alvin Dark as. his solid men. Gail Harris, the rookie brought up from given a thorough shot tit first base. Daryl Spencer, who will be released from service next month, will battle with incumbent HftfUt Thompson for the third base job. Whitey Lockmau, who divided his 1955 chores between first find left field, will be in left if Harrii makes good. If not, Whitey will return to first, unless he is traded. This now tremendous attraction originally was scheduled for Yankee Stadium, but, the Duke game of two years ago convinced Col. Earl H. Blaik that the Black Knights no longer were a draw in Manhattan. Duke came north with a rousing squad bent on vengeance. The Cadets upset the Blue Devils in one of the more exciting games of the season. It was this game that assured West Point men and followers that their football was back like a bowling ball following the cribbing scandal. It was a beautiful fall afternoon, but no more than 22,000 paying guests rattled around in the Polo Grounds. So. when Fritz Crisler asked Red Blaik to play before nearly 100.000 in Ann Arbor with the same per centage and no .rent, the answer wa,s in the affirmative.
