Vote 39 To 35 Of the 99 members of the Base ball Writers' Association of America whftjparticipated in the AP poll, 39 voted-for Higgins and 35 for Stengel.-Walter Alston, only Brooklyn manager to win a world championship, wota the National League award. ' v • Four .other AL- managers received recognition. Marty Marion, v/ho'had the:"dark horse" Chicago White Sox in contention.-all the way before they finally finished third, picked up 16 votes to" finish third in the balloting, too. Lou Boudreau, who surprised by piloting his ragtag Kansas City Athletics into sixth place, got four votes; • The remaining four ballots were divided evenly between Bucky Harris , and Al Lopez. Harris, oldest manager in point of service, did an outstanding job bringing his' Detroit Tigers into fifth place. Lopez, one of the' ablest managers in baseball, led his Cleveland Indians into second place and for the fifth straight season, bagged over 90 victories. Fourth-Place Manager.. This marked the first time since the AP managerial poll was inaug- urated'10 years ago that a;fourth place manager won the award; Admittedly no genius, the 46-year-old Higgins credits his success to'in- finite patience and understanding the problems of his' players. Observers who watched him dur- • ing:eight seasons in the minors and his freshman year in the .major leagues go one step further]. They credit the silent'and sincere^south- westerner with parlaying baseball 'knowledge, sufficient skill as a"psychologist and ability to instill confidence in his players as the rea- 'LJhrn for his success.. . -'. t The Red Sox didn't improve their position last season but under Higgins' able direction they won 15 • games more than they did in 1954 and, from the tune they got rolling in June until the last; month of the season, they were right in the middle of the pennant race. By having faith in players who weren't setting the world on fire, Higgins gave them faith in themselves. By'struggling along quietly without attempting to offer 'ex- cuses'for the team's early poor showing when it was sorely beset with injuries, he developed, an en• thusiastic following among Boston 1 fans and writers. His sympathetic approach to his players' problems had every member of the Red Sox pulling for him .'j. and giving him their best efforts. A star player with Philadelphia, Detroit and Boston, Higgins turned to managing in the Red Sox chain after his active days ended in 1946. _____________ j Duke University's football stadium has an added claim to fame. It is the only grid stadium in the nation which has its own barbecue pit. LESSON IN TACKLING—A football player can't hit much lower/than the unidentified Keyser •High tackier in the above photo. Jerry Hannas, Romriey back, didn't go far after finding his ankle "taped" by the "adhesive hand" of the Keyser gridder lying on,the ground. This bit of action-occurred in^the game last Saturday at Romhey which found Keyser winning 12-7 to take the Potomac Valley Conference championship for the second straight year. No. 87 in the left corner of the picture is Keyser's Charley Tribbett. - . • West Virginia Drilling For Syracuse -.' . .

Furman, preparing for Saturday's Southern *' Conference tilt against- Davidson af Greenville, S.

The two things Uook for are taste and satisfaction. You can't have one without the other. They go hand-in-hand. And together they make a real beer. Old Export always delivers oa these two counts. It's ALL beer... my beer!" We think, you'll always find a full measure of tastt and satisfaction in Old Export. Why? Because Old Export—in addition to being brewed the way a great beer should be brewed (real skill arid plenty of patience)—has everything that makes the differenct between ordinary beer and real beer.
