Ford, New York Yankees (18-71 By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK (AP) — Ted Kluszewski, Willie Mays and Duke Snider were the only repeat Race Tightens in Pro Football League By RIP WATSON The Associated Vrtsm With the National Football League season two-thirds over, the Cleveland Browns have finally showed that they're human after all. They have a weakness, too. They can't protect a 17-0 lead. Cleveland, boasting a proud record of nine conference titles in nine years, seemed beaded for its seventh consecutive victory yesterday when Otto Graham and his mates ran up 17 points in the first 12 minutes against Philadelphia. But the Eagles pre-season choices to win the Eastern Comer- ence title, suddenly their advance billing delphia line stopped lived up to . The Phila•the Browns cold and Adrian Burk set the pace as Ihc Eagles' offensive unit ran up 33 points. This sudden form reversal, coupled with Washington' 7-0 victory over San Francisco in a bruising defensive battle, left Cleveland only a game ahead with a 6-2 mark to Washington's 5-3. Western Deadlocked The Western Conference, meanwhile, was thrown into a deadlock as the Chicago Bears mauled Los Angeles 24-3 to pull even with the Pacific Coast entry at 5 wins and 3 losses. It could have been a three- way tie, too, if the Baltimore Colts had not been upset by New York 17-7. Because of the loss, the Colts now find themselves tied for third instead of first, for Green Bay also boasted a 4-4 record after clouting the Chicago Cardinals 3114 behind Tobiri Rote's three touchdown passes. The rejuvenated Detroit Lions, who stunned their loyal fans by dropping their first six games, won] coach George Halas, exhibited their second in succession, a 31-28: a bone-crushing defense. The be- victory over Pittsburgh as a desperate Steeler rally fell short. Burk, hitherto strictly a passer, discovered that he could run with' the ball, too. His two touchdown passes to Bill Stribling. plus a field goal by Dick Bielski, brought Philadelphia up to 17-16 starling wildered Los Angeles boys, who generally have no trouble scoring, never pussed the Chicago 21 and had to resort to a face-saving field goal, 41 yards by Bud McFadin in the last minute, to avoid a shutout. Ezzard to Box Rocky's Sparring Pal Tonight By JACK HAND The Associated Press Ezzard Charles drops down in class tonight at Providence R I., to box Toxie Hall, one of Rocky Marciano s sparring partners and a main event fighter in his own right. Charles has been losing almost Nick's but found Lulu Perez ajit- as often as he has been winning this year, bowing twice to Tommy (Hurricane) Jackson who recently was deflated again by Jimmy Slade Although Charles has slipped considerably from the days when he held the world heavyweight championship, he will be heavily favored over Hall, who once floored Paddy Young; the flat nosed •oung man from New York's Greenwich Village, climbs back into the jicturetube Wednesday night (ABC, •adio and TV) to slug it out with :huck Spieser of Lcnsing, Mich., at the Chicago Stadium. Although Paddy has been box- g .since 1946 and once fought 3obo Olson for the "American middleweight title," he is only 27, jusl a year older than Spieser, former Michigan State college boy. In his last start Oct. 3, Young lost in 10 rounds to Willie Pastrano at New Orleans. Spieser stopped Willie Troy in five rounds Sept. 30. He has a 14-3 record. Young's long career shows a 49-11-3 record. The only club with more one representative was the world champion Brooklyn Dodgers.. In addition to Snider, Roy Campanella was voted the top catcher, nosing out the New York Yankees' Yogi Berra for the honor. Of the players named, seven are National Leaguers. fed Williams, absent several years because of injuries and service duty since the AP roll originated in 1946, completed the stellar outfield with Mays and Snider. The infield, besides Kfuszewski at first, Included Nellie Fox at second. Eddie Mathews at third and Ernie Banks at shortstop. Two pitchers were chosen. Robin Rob- eris won the rlghthanded honors by a landslide vote and Whitey Ford beat out Billy Pierce for left- The all-star team (batting and pitching records in parentheses): First base—Ted Kluszewski, Cincinnati Reds (.314) Second base — Nellie Fox, Chicago White Sox (.311) Third Base — Eddie Mathews, Milwaukee Braves (.289) Shortstop—Ernie Banks, Chicago Cubs (.295) Left Field—Ted Williams, Boston Red Sox (.356) Center field—Willie Mays, New York Giants (.319) Right Field—Duke Snider, Brooklyn Dodgers (.318) Catcher — Roy Campanella.

Miami May be Site Of Brave Farm Club By CHUCK CAPALDO MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Braves' "floating" Toledo franchise may come to earth in Miami next spring and, if so, result in a realignment of the International League and the American Assn.
