TAKE CHOICE, 2 GAMES HERE TONIGHT - TWO FOR ONE — The Cleveland Indians traded first sacker Vic Wertz, left, and outfielder Gary Ceiger, center, to the Boston Red Sox for outfielder Jimmy Piersall, right, in a deal announced Tuesday night in Washington by Frank Lane, general manager of the Indians. It was described as a straight player deal with no cash involved. (APPhotofax) Lane Begins Trade Binge af Cleveland By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Prank Lane, Cleveland general manager, is on another swapping binge. Within the space of a few hours Tuesday he (1) shipped First baseman Vic Wertz and outfielder Gary Geiger to Boston for center- fielder Jimmy Piersall and (2) shunted infield Bobby Avila to Baltimore for pitcher Russ Heman and a reported $30,000 in cash. Avila may wind up at second base for the Orioles because Billy Gardner had an off season in 1958. Or the 32-year-old Mexican- born infielder may be a utility man filling in at second or third base. Wertz, 88, will be the Boston first baseman, perhaps alternating with Dick Gernert, a right-handed batter. Geiger will battle with Marty Keough and Gene Stephens for the center field poti with the Red Sox. Joe Gordon, Cleveland manager, said Piersall will be his center fielder. Re said the Indians had good scouting reports on Heman, a 6 foot 4 righthander who had a 9-12 record last season with the Orioles' farm at Vancouver in the Pacific Coast League. Detroit kept the trade mill busy by sending pitcher Herb Moford, a right-hander, to Boston for catcher Lou Berberet.

Marty Crowe's Pacelli basket- jail team resumes its drive for the Ravoux Conference title tonight when they entertain Owatonna Marian at the Shamrock Gym, The game, which begins at 8:16 p.m. is the first of two for the Shamrocks this week. Friday they travel to Minneapolis to play Blake in a non-conference affair. Tonight's test brings together two undefeated conference teams. Pacelli outgunned Mankato Loyola, 65-37, last week, while Marian holds a 55-52 verdict over St. Felix of Wabasha. The Shamrocks carry a 1-1 record as they dropped a 54-45 verdict to Minneapolis Central in a non- conference game Saturday. Crowe has emphasized offensive teamwork in practice as he/ was not particularly satisfied with the performance against Central. "I think it will come with more practice and experience," he said. "We didn't have it against Central." Crowe, however, was satisfied with the defense, led by Larry Scheid and Jack Meyer. They had some trouble with Clarence Bur;on's jump shots, but on a whole the defense was good until the Shamrocks panicked in the closing minutes. Crowe also hop%s that Leon Zender regains his shooting form as the veteran all-state forward hit only twd of 22 attempts against Central. There may be a change in the Pacelli lineup with Gerry Maschka replacing Mike Donovan at center. Otherwise Zender and Bob Schottler, who showed improvement against Central, will be the forwards and Scheid and Meyer are fixtures at the guard. Marian comes here with an experienced team, backed by nine lettermen.

Playing at home, Elkton launched a drive for another title by defeating Grand Meadow, 54-45, while Rose Creek turned back hapless Glenville, 72-35, a team that has failed to win a game in 32 starts over a three-year priod. Elkton, 55-51 winner over Wykoff in an earlier non-conference game, needed a second half spurt to pull away from Grand Meadow. Ralph Fetter's Elks held a 13-12 advantage at the quarter and led by four points, 27-13, at halftime. The Larks, coached by Bill Christopher son, fell behind 39-30 in the third period when Darell Jacobson, a good rebounder, left the game on fouls. After that, Grand Meadow failed to threaten the winners. David Anderson and Harv Jendersee of Elkton provided most of the scoring punch as together they netted 49 points. Anderson led with 28, while Jendersee added 21 and both had good luck hitting from outside. Jerry S i m e s paced Grand Meadow with 16 points, while Jacobson had eight before he fouled out. Neither team had much luck on the free throw line as Elkton made only six of 24 attempts and Grand Meadow hit five of 25 chances. The preliminary game was won by Elkton, 30-28, with two late buckets by Duane Jendersee turning the trick. It was the second setback in three starts for the Larks. Glenville managed to play a good first- half against Rose Creek, but couldn't keep up the pace.

A 78-41 Winner over Pillsbury College of Owatonna, the Blue Devils are anxious to add to the string before they begin bidding for the Southern Minnesota Junior College Conference title Friday night against Dr. Martin Luther at New Ulm. While Austin had tittle trouble running over Pillsbury, Waldorf is expected to afford more trouble when the teams step on the floor at 7:30 p.m. Although the Warriors have dropped three straight, all of the game have been close.

Players Jolt Owners With \ * ->* Salary Plan By JOB RE1CHLER Associated Press Sports Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Baseball mapates today formed an angry, united front against the major league players' bid for a cut of the owners' Income and minor leaguers' demands for a pension plan. The big league players, already bulwarked by a pension plan supported by World Series radio and television money, Jolted their employers Tuesday with a salary proposal calling for 20 per cent of each club's gross revenue. At the same time, International League executives were shocked by the threat of a strike by their players after the officials' refusal to buckle to an ultimatum by the athletes' lawyer. "You will accept the pension plan or you will not have Inter national League baseball," Atty. James Durante was reported as saying.

It's still too early to tell if the Lakers are truly on the way back in the National Basketball Assn. .Even the top brass isn't predicting the club's future beyond the end of the season. "This is the year of the big push as far as we are concerned," said Bob Short, the head of a stockholders group which bought the once flourishing franchise two years ago. "If we lose money this year I'd say we are finished," They dropped about $70,000 last year. But the Lakers aren't losing money so far this season — for the first time in three or four years — and the big bill collector is the 6-6 rookie sensation from Seattle U., Elgin Baylor. "Baylor is everything to us," West Virginia Wins, but Need Rally Again Army's Novogratz Lineman of Week By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer If Navy Coach Eddie Erdelatz has nightmares during the coming months the chief villain probably will be a strapping, 6 feet 2, 210 pound lad from Northampton, Pa. whom Erdelatz last saw wearing Army jersey No. 61. This would be Bob Novogratz, whose play in helping th Cadets defeat Navy 22-6 last Saturday in Philadelphia' Municipal Stadium today earned him honors as Lineman of the Week by The Associated Press. Novogratz gave the impression to the 102,000 half-frozen spectators and to many in the television audience that he was all over the field at once.

Ron Kraft counted 23 points to lead the winners while Gary Schummal and Charles Kester finished with 12 apiece. Neil Lang bit 12 and Roger Lee eight for the losers. It was the first victory for Darold Yost's Indians after losing to Ellendale last week. . Glenville won the preliminary game, 31-30. Adams Edges Hayfield Five ADAMS, Minn. — Art Cahill's strong Adams basketball team chalked up its third straight victory with a narrow 45-42 decision over Hayfield here Tuesday night.

Ron Lien added 11. For Hayfield, Larry Hyland potted 11 and Al Eastlee nine while Russ Bakkedahl and John Gross turned in some good rebounding. It was the second setback for coach Virgil Gehring's Vikings as they dropped a 38-33 decision to Blooming Prairie in the opener. lowans Stop Lyle, 77-35 By BEN OLAN Associated Press Sports Writer West Virginia, the Southern Conference powerhouse and the nation's top-ranked team last season, has won two games in the opening two days of the college basketball season.

They did it in defeating VMI 82-71 Tuesday night, extending conference skein to 38 consecutive victories. The triumph was not secured until the final two minutes. The Keydets held a brief lead early in the second half and after dissipating it deadlocked the game Xavier of Ohio, last season's Na tional Invitation Tournament winner, downed John Carroll 91-71.

His play has given the club enough lift to. push it close to the .500 mark in the western division and make some of the vets come alive again. The acclaim that has been showered on the rookie is not resented by the older players. But they did remind him recently about one thing. At one of coach Johnny Kundla's "let-your-hair-down" sessions somebody brought up Baylor's defensive lapses. Elgin acknowledged them and said he would bear down as hard on defense as on the attack.

Harridge, who headed the league since 1931, made his decision known this morning after meeting with baseball club owners. His retirement will become effective as soon as the league i» prepared to select his successor. Harridge, 72, joined the American League as secretary to President Ban Johnson in December 1911 and has remained with the league ever since. He was elected league secretary in 1927. He served under- the league's and after Barnard's death in 1931 was named league president. There was no immediate indication who would succeed Harridge, although the name of Joe Cronin, Joston Red Sox general manager, igured prominently in the guessing. Harridge's announcement came as a surprise to the American league club owners who only two years ago tore up his old contract and gave him a new 10-year pact at an estimated $50,000 a year. in 17 points for Duluth and John Sampson added 15 as their maces opened the season at home with an impressive 78-58 defeat of Moorhead State.

Johnson is unbeaten in seven starts since the celebrated TV bout with Julio Mederos in Philadelphia, May 6, 1955. Johnson, who allegedly was doped, collapsed and Mederos got a second round technical knockout. Despite his lack of competition since 1955, the Philadelphian holds the No, 2 ranking among light- heavy contenders and has an over all record of 58-8.
