Maryland's first four games, Hi * converted cen f ler is. almos certain to wii (he All-America title predictei for him even be fore the foolbal season started. M a r y 1 a n coach Jim Ta turn says he can't recall a player, in all the years he has Bob Pellegrini •'-'" been with football, 1 who has doni • '•• 'such a great job defensively. And ' • Tatum has had some outstanding defensive performers during his eight seasons al Maryland, fellows like Dick Modzelewski, Stan Jones Bobby Ward, Ray Krousc and Cumberland's own John Alderton Modzelewski, Jtines and • Ward w.ere Alt-Americans, while Krouse and Alderton flirted with this honor from a number of different sources. The move made by Tatum this . past spring in shifting Pellegrini from guard to center has certainly turned out to be a wise omen. II was "Battering Bob" who saved the day for the Tcrps in their great 7-0 victory over UCLA when he hit fullback Doug Peters on (lie goal line and made him fumble. Pellegrini also recovered. After holding UCLA to a minus 21 yards on the ground, Bruin coach Hed Sanders said Pellegrini was greater than in 1954, the year that Sanders said Bob was by far the best opposing guard he had seen all season. Again led by the big 6-3, 225- pounder from Yatesboro, Pa., the -.Terps held Baylor to 71 yards - •••rushing and last week stopped ./Wake Forest-with only seven net • ^-yards' on the ground. In the Mis . :.:souri opener, the Tigers came up • i-wilh 124 yards. Pellegrini played 29 minutes of thai game. Besides Sanders, Missouri's Don Faurol, Baylor's George Saner, mnrl last week Tom ,'~"", Rogers a!

Keyser, entering'' the game 'as favorite, will have the services for its first-string center witli the return of Jim Turbin who also backs up the line on defense. Turbin lips the beams at 205 pounds and missed the fray against Allegany last Friday because of a wrenched knee sustained in practice. His place had been filled in by Joe Pezzanile.

"Bucky°s" runback was good for 41 yards. Cage wasn't the only Bluejacket casually, end Jim Conner also suffering a broken hand while making a tackle. "Bucky" was graduated from '. Forl Hill in 1952.

"Yet," says a New .Year's Day ame official, "they won't be in ited to a Bowl unless one of those ot committed to conferences—Ihe ugar, Colton and Gator — can'l jnd anybody else.

North Carolina To Go TqAir Against Terrapins Tomorrow COLLEGE PARK, Md. (/P)—Coach 1 George Barclay of North Carolina has joined those jvho threaten to pass a lot after their scouts saw Maryland's line hole up its Miller Heads Rifle League early victims. • This is no news to coach' Jim Tatum.

So while North Carolina is flin :ig the Chapel Hill tomo ow, it might be worrying bo bout Maryland boomeranging s well as .doing some harm! irowing on its own. As tar as the Maryland lii ocs, it will be working on a re rd of holding opponents to a verage 45.3 yards rushing a gam he best performance in the cou ry. This lias been accomplished d spite a seemingly endless seri of injuries to tackles. Four of th first six have been hurt, an while only Joe Lazzarino definite is out of the North Carolina gam coach Tatum is bringing in r placements. Bob Suchy, more guard, worked out at tack this week just in case. But Ihis trip, after the Mountaineers rolled up 126 points in the first three outings, you gel Ihe impression that this might be the i'ear for West Virginia.

Wesl Virginia is further handicapped in its fight, lo regain big time recognition by a' schedule forced upon it by the weak Southern Conference. Grossly Unfair Tossing West Virginia out of Bowl 'consideration because its sophomores had a bad day against an exceptionally clever squad two years ago is grossly unfair. Might as well Ihrow out Army for its nine fumbles against Michigan, while knowing perfectly well that the Cadets will bounce hack like Rocky Marciano off the floor.

Orioles Stress Youth, Giving Lbpat Release BALTIMORE \Xi •- The Balti more-Orioles made 1 two moves in as many days in quest of a young pitching sta.ff by releasing 36-year old Eddie Lopat and buying two minor leaguers, 25-year-old Me Held and 24-year : old Pat Gosney Lopat's contract was offered yes terday to any of the other 15 major league teams for the nominal s: mco: That signified the Orioles aelief that Lopat's major league career is over after" 12 years ii which he pitched in seven Worl< Series games for five straigh years with.the New York Yankees Lopat • won four and lost one in .he championship games. Also Buy Outfielder Manager Paul Richards said he couldn't fit Lopat in his future Oriole pitching picture, which con templates full opportunity' for younger hurlers. Among these are Held and Gosney,,whose contracts were bought from San Antonio, a farm .team' of the' Orioles. Baltimore, also bought the con .ract of Chuck Oertel, 24-year-olc outfielder, .from Sari Antonio. Held won 24 and lost 7 for San Antonio in the Class AA Texas League last season. "Gosney, used sparingly, had .only . a • 1-3. mark >ut has been. considered a prime irosptct. The same is true of Oer .el, who was sidelined July 4 with a fractured arm. At the time, he was hitting .298. The. Orioles got Lopat for the 110,000 waiver price from the Van ;ces last July 30. He had a 4-i record and for the Orioles posted .hree victories and four defeats lis earned run average was. a ligh 4.22 in-Baltimore. •Junk' Baffles Hitters It was only his second losing season in the American League. The first was in 1945. his second year with the Chicago White Sox, vhcn he won 10 and lost 13. The White Sox traded' him to New York in 1948. From the next •ear through 1953 he, Allie Reynolds and Vic Rasclii pitched the Yankees to pennants. Reynolds has •etired and Raschi pitched last .eason for the Kansas City Ath- etics. Lopat's slow breaking pitches, described as "junk," were espe cially baffling to hitters in 1951. He won 21 against nine losses and then beat the Giants twice in the World Series, giving them only one run in 18 innings. He also earned World Series victories in 1949 and 1953. He was charged with a loss in two ap. pearanccs in 1952. He pitched eight innings in one game of the 1950 World Series but was not credited with the loss or victory.
