Bobby Bragan, 37. steps up from the Pacific Coast • League with a remarkable record, yet, oddly enough, more widely known as anj umpire baiter than the thoroughly sound baseball .nail he is. Bragan was fined nine times and suspended once while winning a couple of pennants, finished second twice and fourth in four years as head of Brooklyn branch in Fort Worth. ' But .Bragan, who became a National League catcher because he was too slow to play, shortstop, did not acquire .a reputation for becoming whackj' at times until he went to.Hollywood, where in three years he won, lost a play-off for the championship and ran third, only four game out of first place with a club that was fifth in batting.

Coach John Sauer, who has juided The Citadel to its best record in "13 seasons, warned his team, "VMI has played a much tougher schedule than we have. Their record won't mean a thing when they play us." VMI has lost eight games in as many outings. The Citadel's record is 5-2. The game may draw 16,000 spectators,'the most ever to witness a contest in Johnson Ha- ;ood Stadium. Richmond and George Washington collide in the other conference jet-together Saturday.

Va. Furman tried moving the bal against Florida State defenses in final preparation for Friday night's game at Greenville, S. C. Sophomore quarterback Ken Herron returned to work after being sidelined with injuries. Davidson's Wildcats, who are hosts Saturday • to Wofford, took things easy for the third successive day — going through' a light dummy scrimmage with emphasis on- kicking. Washington & Lee continued its Won Two Pennants In 1953-54, Bragan clubs won two ennants in 10 months, the Almendares outfit of the Cuban Winter ,eague taking its cue from the Stars. Fresco Thompson traces Bragan's antics on the west coast to iis being exposed to Hollywood. "Out there with the clowns," ;ays Thompson, the old infielder n charge of Dodger farms, "Bobby eems to have decided to get in he act." Upset by umpires' decisions, Bragan did a semi-strip tease on he bench. He was catching and out of the dugout, one at a time, came mask, shinguards, protector, cap and shirt. Aggravated on another occasion, he laid as though stone cold dead in the third base coach's box. ' Another time, he stretched himself across the base where the decision was made: He sent up eight pinch-hitters 'or one batter, two a pitch a time or two. He was fined 10 times', suspended once or twice. Hoople Sticks By Mysteria, Also Picks Clemson And Pitt By MAJOR AMOS B. HOOPLE Mentor of Heffelfinger Har-rumph! This week and next my memory travels back to my Old Blue days at Yale when I was associated Saxton was set today for another with Stagg, Heffelfinger, Coy and other immortals of the a charm. The Honolulu-born . -champion! Changes Tactics Last year, when Branch Rickey Jr., told Braga*!! he was acquiring reputation as a clown and that this might .impede his advance- puts his middleweight title on the line -for the- fourth time when he faces the aging Robinson next month in a 15-round nationally televised match at the Chicago Stadium. A crafty exponent of boxing wiz- ardy, Robinson will have to use a lot of cunning against the younger Olson who has waited patiently for the return match with one of two men who have twice defeated him. The late Dave Sands of Australia did it in 1950 and 1951. Loses On Kayo Olson first met Robinson in 1950 and lost on a 12th round knockout. Robinson also defeated Olson in 1952— a 15-round decision. Olson won the title from Randy Turpin in 1953 in a climax of an elimination series. But one thing has been uppermost in Olson's mind— beating Robinson. "I want to beat him (Robinson) in the worst way," Bobo repeated today. "I certainly am glad that Ray came out of retirement. Otherwise I never would have had a chance to meet him again." While the ambitious Robinson has scored two wins over Olson the coming fight marks the "high- water crest" of Sugar Ray's come- oack bid. Robinson launched his comeback bid in November, 1954 He previously had retired from ihe ring for a dancing career after iiis loss to Joey Maxim in June 1952, for the light heavyweight title. The New York ring veteran however, in need of money, took down the gloves again. Only Loss To 'Tiger' Robinson's only loss during his ment to. the majors, the Alabama- born resident of Fort Worth vowed that he would not be thrown out preparation for Saturday's game at Sewanee. William & Mary is idle until Nov. 19. of a game 'and wasn't until the last day of the season. National League umpires no doubt are now busy writing one another, .circulating .the warning not to let Bragan get his foot in the door. Even with Leo Durocher gone, things will be- touch enough for them, with Birdie Tebbetts of the Reds and Fred Hutchinson: taking over the Cardinals and Bill Rigney the Giants. • Bragan is intelligent enough not to get the arbiters down on him, however, and at once took steps to soften the way. Sees No Trouble "I'll beef only when I have a legitimate one," he says. "I realize that up here the umpires are more capable, just as the players are better. I don't anticipate any trouble with them." In Fort Worth, Bragan develop ed young players—Carl Erskine, Irv Noren, Dee Fondy. Billy Hunter, Dick Williams, Toby Atwell and Elroy Face, among them— and obtained similar splendid results in Hollywood when the stock came from Pittsburgh. Leaving the clowning to Hollywood, Bobby Bragan will be a fighting straight man, and that could be exciting enough. comeback was. to Ralph (Tiger Jones. When they fed Sugar to the Tiger, the Tiger "ate him up" Bu Robinson called his loss "one tha taught me a lesson." He blamed i on overconfidence and lack of suf ficient training. Robinson's last fight on July 22 tin's year, saw him floored once but get up to score a decision over Rocky Castellani, number two middleweight. Olson has taken his title defense seriously. Sam all-time great Pian, one of the fight managers made an interesting observation about Olson: "He's a natural. He does every thing right and seems to do it by instinct. One thing you can bet on, Robinson won't catch Olson asleep at the switches." Answers Every Letter Even out of the ring, the middleweight • king is meticulous in his habits. Each day when the mail arrives, Olson opens it -himself and answers each one in longhand. He said: cleated foot! Traditional games in the ivy .eague bring' together Yale and 'rinceton this week-end, and Yale ersus Harvard next . week, . and am parlaying Yale to win both truggles. It was in 1873, y'know, when Yale, Princeton, Columbia and dear old Rutgers met and framed ules for football—which prohibited carrying or throwing the ball, )y the way—and my Uncle Crom- vell Hoople was one of the group. Egad! Full well do I recall 40 •ears ago when Otto Guernsey (or vas his name Oscar?) drop-kicked 53-yard field goal for Yale against Princeton! And a few years ater H. Pumpelly drop-kicked one r or 49 yards in the same contest. Those old Yale-Princton, Yale- Harvard rivalries produced gargantuan feats (I could make a bad jun here and say "feets," but I shall forego iti). Some of my contemptible con- :emporaries laughed when I picked mucilaginous Hysteria to outshine the Gold Dusters of Fort Knox in a'free-scoring game, but that final score of 37-36 should be proof positive, that there's life in the old forecaster yet. Hysteria coach Frank Fiction may have created a monster for himself when he booked Frank And Stein. The name is enough to make your blood curdle but I'll string along with methodical Mysteria.

Ernie Seller, Orange Bowl general manager, said Oklahoma, which will represent the Big Seven in the Jan. 2 game here, "is being besieged for tickets by its fans." A total of 12,149 tickets were allocated to Oklahoma and a similar number reserved for Maryland, which is expected to represent the Atlantic Coast Conference in the Orange Bowl.

Motor experts, men who know cars from A to Z, put their trust in the top- quality anti-freeze—Du Pont "Zerex." 91 % of the starting drivers in this year's world-famous Indianapolis 500-mile race use Du Pont "Zerex" in their own personal cars. Here's one reason: SEE HOW MUCH CLEANER "ZEREX" KEEPS YOUR RADIATOR Flask at left held a solution of water and ordinary anti-frecze with an oil inhibitor. Flask at right held a solution of "Zerex" and. water. To each was added the same amoun t of ground rust—just as you might find in your own car's cooling system. Both flasks were shaken, then drained. Notice how a film of rust clings to tho inside of the flask on left as it would to the metal surfaces of your car's cooling system. But the flask containing "Zcrex" is clean! This demonstrates that Du Font's special chemical rust inhibitor, which contains no oil, does not form a rusty oil film that could clog your radiator and cause overheating and serious engine damage.
