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 at Cleveland By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Frank 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, S3, will be the Boston first baseman, perhaps alternating with Dick Gernert, a right-hand ed batter. Geiger will battle with Marty Keough and Gene Stephens for toe center field poo" with the Red Sox. Joe Gordon, Cleveland manager, said Piersall will be his center fielder. He 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.

St. Louis, the Western Division leader, had an easy time agains the hapless Royals, who dropped their 16th in 19 games. It was an inauspicious coaching debut fo Tom Marshall. He replaced Bobby Wanzer Tuesday. Dukes snapped a 91-all deadlock with a jump shot with 22 second remaining. He added an insuranc basket 14 seconds later. Ellendole Edges LtRoy Five, 44-43 ELLENDALE, Minn. — Coach Rick Hubbard's LeRoy basketball team dropped a 44-43 heartbreaker to Ellendale in a non-coofereoce game here Tuesday night.

The nationwide poll was conducted by the Downtown A.C. He will receive his trophy at the club's annual dinner at the Downtown A.C. Wednesday, Dec. 10. Dawkins received 296 first-place votes and 1,394 points. Randy Duncan, quarterback of Iowa's Big Ten champions, was second (194 and 1,021) and halfback Billy Cannon of Louisiana State, No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll, third (198 and 975). A polio victim when in the seventh grade, Dawkins has made an inspirational comeback. He now is 6-1, 197 pounds, and starred in hockey and baseball too. Only two years ago he failed to win a football letter because ol poor blocking and tackling. Today he tops them all. with the defense, led by Larry Scheid and Jack Meyer. They had some trouble with Clarence Burton's jump shots, but on a whole the defense was good until the Shamrocks panicked in the clos- jig minutes. Crowe also hopes that Leon Tender 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 Tender 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 en experienced team, backed by nine lettermen. Coach Dale Vaughan, former St. Augustine star, will have Dave Ness at center, Dennis Glende and Dave Zeman at forwards and Bob Wacek and Larry McCarthy at guards. All of them are veterans. Others who may see action are Gene Von Ruden and Geno Borowicz. The Knights are undefeated as they opened the season with a 61-42 victory over Medford of the Gopher Conference.

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 Christopherson, fell behind 39-30 in the third period when Darell Jacobson, a good rebounder, left the game on fouls.

Players Jolt Owners With Salary Plan By JOB REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Baseball magnates 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 International League baseball," Atty. James Durante was reported as saying.

ANSGAR, Iowa - A tall and hot-shooting St. Ansgar basketball team defeated Lyle, 77-39, in a non-conference game here By JIM KLOBUCHAR MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis Lakers, pro basketball's paupers a year ago, are being rescued from the breadline by a meal ticket named Baylor and some rah-rah showmanship right off the campus. 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 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.

The Keydets held a brief lead early in the second half and after dissipating it deadlocked the game at 70-70 with 2:46 remaining. The Mountaineers, however, turned on their vaunted fast break in the closing moments. Pivotal second-half rallies were the order of the night. Wake Forest got hot in the last three minutes to beat Davidson 56-52. Virginia finished strong in defeating William and Mary 85-74 and a driving layup by Ken Coulter in the final five seconds enabled Tennessee to down Wyoming 72-71. In other games, less closely contested, Illinois trimmed Butler 103-79, Marquette walloped Wisconsin 76-47, Oklahoma City beat Southern Methodist 74-51 and Xavier of Ohio, last season's tional Invitation Tournament winner, downed John Carroll 91-71.

Never in the game, Lyle trailed 25-8 at the quarter and were down 49-15 at halftime.

They told me n the NBA I couldn't do it. Even Baylor told me I couldn't do it. "Well, it cost us. If you say 17,000 you are not far off. But here he is, just about the best jiece of property in pro basket>all. He's bringing people in to watch him, and the Lakers." Last year Minneapolis was play- ng in silent, embarrassed privacy. For the first eight home games attendance was 22,000. This season for eight games the club has drawn more than 39,000 — an improvement of almost 100 per cent. "We're playing just over the break even point with the best part of the season in terms of fan interest coming up," Short said. "As far as I know only New York, Boston and St. Louis are doing any better. We figured we'd have to average $6,600 a game to break even. We're close to $7,000." The Laker front office has plunged into the save-our-team venure with zest and a parade of pretty girls. "The Lakerettes," high schoolers recruited from suburban St. Louis Park, strut during timeouts and try to wring cheers from the willing but somewhat befuddled crowd. The club puts on musical shows and general trys its level best to keep the fans entertained. The Laker team itself has too much that is ordinary to put it on the level of St. Louis or Boston. But it has a magnificent player in Baylor, the league's leading scorer with 505 points. His play has given the club enough lift to. push it close to the rectors are fully sympathetic to the players' request," laid Frank Morton, president of the Rochester club, who reported Durafite's words. But Horton added the directors "could find no way, within the economic framework of the league to raise the more than a quarter of a million dollars to underwrite a pension plan." •Threaten to Strike Durante had informed the International League the players had resolved not to sign 1959 contracts nor to report to spring training until the pension plan, as outlined by Durante, would cost $293,000 annually. The blueprint called for the players to pay $37,000 ($1.50 a day.per player), with the league putting up the remaining $256,000, or $32,000 per club. Major league magnates were seething over what they called unthinkable and unreasonable demands" by the players. At least one owner, Tom Yawkey of the Boston Red Sox, hinted he might pull out of baseball if the players continued to press for what he termed exorbitant demands. Change Tactics Earlier, the ( playera changed tactics when their attorney J.

Mankato and Duluth Win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Duluth Branch and Mankato State won basketball victories in non-conference contests Tuesday night while Winona was absorbing a 72-67 loss to Wartburg of Iowa. Freshman Bill Mattson dropped GliStOVUS .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. He has, and the Lakers are playing some of the best basketball in the league. Harridge, 72, Quits Job as AL President WASHINGTON M — William Harridge resigned today as president of the American League. 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 it 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'* and after Barnard's death in 1931 was named league president. There was no immediate indication who would aucceed Harridge, although the name of Joe Cronin, Boston Red Sox general manager, figured 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.

(AP) — Defense work was accented Tuesday as Gustavus Adolphus boned up for its Saturday football game at Arizona State in the NAIA playoff for e bowl berth later this month. "If we win, our line is going to have to carry the burden," said Coach Lloyd Hollingsworth, referring to the 209-pound average in that department. Bill Rill, 210-pound center, and fullback Mark Skoog were still flu victims and absent from drill Tuesday. But Hollingsworth said he expected to be in shape for the Saturday tilt.
