St. Louis, Boylor, Wichita Three Schools Receive NCAA Punishment For Athletic Code Violations By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO (AP) -T- The universities of St, Louis, Baylor and Wichita have been punished for violating the NCAA athletic code. A one-year probation was handed to St. Louis by the 18-man council, the NCAA's policy-directing body. The lesser punitive measure of a reprimand was given to Wichita and Baylor. The probation, which places St. Louis under surveillance, was for a violation in offering a prospective athlete more financial aid than the rules of the Missouri Valley Conference and NCAA permit. The reprimand, more or less a public slap on the wrist, was given Baylor for providing transportation to the prospective athletes on a campus visit. j PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Otto Graham, the old pass cai/ T*Ba loT said^thYt ^i°e afh-i master > continues to show the way in the National Football le a te.$°were y Jerry" 1 Tubbs, now ati League's most important art — passing.

Second "Service HoWi Our Trade" Ph. 3-6863 White Sox Add Long-Sought Power at Plate Larty Doby Mov«t To Chicago For Carrtuquel, Busby By JERRY I, I SKA CHICAGO !£!— Slugger-hunting Frank Lane is gone, but the Chicago White Sox finally may have nabbed their long-sought cleanup batter in outfielder Larry Doby of the Cleveland Indians. Late yesterday, they traded slumping shortstop Chico Carras- quel and light-hitting outfielder Jim Busby for Doby in a straight player deal. Doby, 30, a long-ball swatter with a .291 average last season, was coveted by Lane long before the trade-minded general manager moved to the St. Louis Cardinals. It was Sox Vice President Chuck Comiskey who finally landed him. The Sox finished third in the American League race for the past four seasons. Conceding such problems as pitching and infield weaknesses, the big drag for the, Sox was lack of a fencebuster. , Doby should be the cleanup man missed since big Gus Zernial was traded away in 1951. Doby, with a lifetime major league batting mark of .286 in eight seasons, last season slammed 26 homers, 17 doubles and 5 triples, driving across 75 runs. This was all despite an ailing wrist. In New Orleans, Doby learned of the trade, and said: "I have enjoyed every year playing for Cleveland. It is a wonderful organization. I hope I can fill the bill for Chicago and I think I can." The departure of Carrasquel, who batted .256 and drove across 52 runs last season, was no surprise. Once regards' 1 as "another (Phil) Rizzuto" the man from Venezuela was a hot-and-cold player. Chico, who *s 27, probably will be replaced by rookie Luis Aparacio from Memphis, although Jim 3rideweser and hustling Carl Pe- .crson will push him. Busby batted .239 last season. Title Fight Delayed Month By Ankle Injury CHICAGO (#1—The International Boxing Club figures it will take Sugar Ray Robinson, who suffered an ankle injury, a month to get well and back in shape for his title fight against middleweight champion Bobo Olson. The IBC postponed the Chicago Sodium fight scheduled for Nov. 4 o Dec. 9 because of Sugar Ray's •njury. Robinson, the IBC said, sprained his ankle while training Sunday and tried to work out yesterday but couldn't because of the pain. Athis Greenwood Lake, N". Y.. camp, Robinson said, "I am at a loss for wordr. I'm so disappointed. I was in excellent condition." Olson broke camp and planned to go to his San Francisco home for a lay off of several weeks. "I'm naturally disgusted," said Hog-Aggie Tilt Tops Make Or Break Weekend in SWC FAYETTEVILLE— The champion is backed into a corner and the challenger is moving in for the kill. That's the Southwest Conference football setting this weekend as the resurging Texas Ag- gies move into the Ozarks for a showdown with the Arkansas Razorbacks. The match-maker must have had an eye on this Halloween weekend ahead — because highlighted by the Aggie-Arkansas battle, the league features three climatic contests that will either completely confuse the championship race or clear the air. Confusion is exactly what the Porkers have in mind. Now 1-2 in standings, Arkansas will either (1) make a bold bid to defend its crown during the month of November, or (2f become the first team in the iOOp to bow out of the 1955 scram- ble. Containment Top Job The Saturday picture has Southern Methodist (1-0) meeting Texas (1-1) at Dallas and Baylor (1-1) playing Texas Christian (1-1) in Waco. Rice, licking the wounds of two straight league losses, has a brief respite in playing Kentucky at Lexington. Even a Wildcat victory would do no damage to their lading title hopes. The "big" job is up to Arkansas — and in the words of head coach Jack Mitchell, '"containing appears to be our biggest job. We're more worried about making a good showing than stopping them long enough to beat them," Mitchell's scouts have collaborated with others who have seen the Cadets play and label Bear Bryant's team "as good as there is in the nation at this lime — Oklahoma and Michigan no exception." The Aggies have no secret weapon in their success story — they have achieved precisely the same thing that propelled the 1054 Pork- j ers to a championship. Bryant's l I squad returned from the West coast | and their UCLA loss unhappy with' their showing and determined to reverse at long last the Aggie fortunes. The result has been tough practice sessions that are paying off handsomely, a tremendously-inspiring morale factor and typical Bryant attention to game-thoroughness. This was all exhibited in the 1954 Aggie campaign — but even Bryant's timetable couldn't have planned any quicker recovery. Weight Advantage The much-publicized "light-Aggie" line will hold a definte weight advantage of that of the Razorbacks. Despite Bryant's claim that his Cadets are small up front.— "smaller than any line in the country" _ Texas A&M will hold a five- pound advantage over Arkansas' 190-pound unit. Surprising as it may be, the Ag- Bobby Bragan May Be Blies' New Manager PITTSBURGH (AP) — Perhaps it was just a slip of the lip but Joe L. Brown, the Pittsburgh Pirates' new general manager, may have let the cat out of the bag on his choice of a field manager. Brown told a news conference following his appointment yesterday that "my big challenge is to "ind a player-manager." Notice, he said player-manager. He corrected himself a few minutes later explaining: "What I meant to say was a field manager. C wanted to differentiate between one on the field and one in the office." But Bobby Bragan, field pilot at Hollywood of the Pacific Coast League, is a playing-manager. And Bragan is considered a top choice for the job. Bragan, who will be 3? on Oct. 30, is known as a sound aggressive player and manager. He has aeen under the wing of Branch Rickey Sr., the man who Brown succeeded, since he played under Rickey at Brooklyn from 1943 to 1947. The final decision on the Pirates' new field boss will not, however, be strictly up to the 37-year-old Brown. John W. Galbreath, the | club's president, indicated that' much. "We have about 10 or 12 applications," Galbreath said. "Dixie Walker (formerly with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Pirates) and Bragan are being given definite consideration." Brown said the business of nam- i Ing a new field manager probably | will be done sometime next week. The handsome son of movie comedian Joe E. Brown said there will be no radical changes in the Pirates' organization. "I feel we have a capable one." He added. gies will even start more letter-men and fewer sophomores in the Saturday Arkansas Homecoming than will the Porkers In the front line. Mitchell has listed three soph* for starting duty in his line — Jay Donathan at center, Stuart Perry at guard, and Jess Deason or Richard'Bennett at tackle (both ara sophomores). That rates against the Aggies' two line sophomores. For A&M, the Arkansas gaxn» will be a big hurdle in the 1955 title drive. Not that the Porkers ara^ considered to be the toughest competition they'll face — but with TCU at Fort Worth out of the way — a win over Arkansas at Razorback Homecoming Is a choice plum to say the least. The Aggies would be 3-0 and have two of the remaining loop games at home. The game will be a sellout by the latter part of the week and is Arkansas' 34th Homecoming ooa- test.

The postponement will give the IBC another chance to lure Kobin- si i to Chicago for his workouts in an effort to boost ticket sales.
