FOURTEEN EVENING TIMES. CUMBERLAND. MO.. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER PA^-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Hot Bounding Pistons Take Third In Row By The Associotcd Press The Fort Wayne Pistons, defending Western division champions of the National Basketball Assn., are showing the rest of the teams that first impressions can be mighty deceiving. The Pistons, after losing six of their first seven games, captured their third straight by defeating the fading New York Knickerbockers 104-99 in a Madison Square doubleheader last night. In the other game, the Boston Celtics moved into third place in the East era division by trouncing the Syra cuse Nationals 105-97. The loss dropped the Nats into the cellar of the Eastern division. New Yorkers Tire In the only other, game, the red hot St. Louis Hawks, leading the Western division, knocked off the Eastern leaders, the Philadelphia Warriors, 108-95, behind the 40 point scoring spree of Bob Pettit. The Pistons, leading most of the way, opened up late in the fourth period as the tiring New Yorkers played sloppy ball and fouled con tinuously. Both teams scored 37 "field goals, but the final difference was measured at the foul line where Fort Wayne scored on 30 of 38 tries. The Knicks made good with only 25 of 35. Veterans Larry Foust and Mel Hutchins led the winners with 28 and 23 points, respectively, while rookie Ken Sears and Jimmy Baechtold .tied for New York scoring honors with 18 apiece.. George King Brilliant Boston's veteran pair of Easy Ed MacAuley and Bill Sharman 'tallied 49 points between them to offset a brilliant performance by the Nats' George King, who scored 31. MacAuley had, 27, Sharman 22. Philadelphia has an 8-3 mark while New York, with 8-5, Boston 5-4 and Syracuse 6-6 follow in .the Eastern division standings. Pettit's 40 points were the top single-game total of the young pro season. The former Louisiana Stete'All-America hit 14 of 23 from the field, and 12 of 17. free throws. He increased his league-leading game average to 25.2 on 252 points in* 10 games. ^Philadelphia's ^lop two 'scorers, Neil Johnston and Paul Arizin, w£re limited to only 6 points in the first half. They finished with 12;'and 14 points, respectively. St. Louis retained its 2V4-game le^d' in the Western division with a'G-4 mark. Fort Wayne has a 4-J record.

Yankees Play Total Of 215 Games In'55 BY JOHN HARRINGTON INS SpoHs Editor NEW YORK-(lNS)-The New York Yankees may have added to their seemingly endless list of records when they played 215 games in 1955. Broken down, that includes 28 spring training exhibitions, 154 regular season games, the annual Mayor's Trophy affair with the New York Giants, seven World Series contests and 25 on the just- completed Far Eastern tour. General manager George Weiss and Yankee publicity director Bob ?ishel, who went along on the swing through Hawaii, Japan, Ok- nawa, the Philippines and Guam, .hink those last 25 games may have )een the most important of all— )ecause of the good will aspects. Top Crowd 64,000 The Yanks averaged nearly 30,000 spectators for the 16 games .hey played in Japan, with a top crowd of 64,000 a> Osaka.

(AP Photofax) Arnett Making Southern Cal Fans Forget Heroes Of Past By CHARLES DENTON LOS ANGELES— (INS) —It takes someone very special to make Southern California's die-hard band of football followers forget the heroes of a glorious past. Most Trojan fans, of any respectable standing still bow their heads •' in reverence at the mention of the late "headman" Howard Jones' famous power play. And any conversation touching on .such USC grid immortals as Morley Druhy, Orv Mohler, Ernie Smith, Cotton Warburton or Morton Kaer can bring moisture to eye's that recently have been grimly dry and affixed on Trojan coach Jess Hill. But at last the hard corps that has battled for years against the dccal of USC's onetime football empire has found' a gladiator capable of relegating yesterday's heroes to memory's mothballs. : He is, of course, Jon Arnett, International Newsservices "Player of the Week" for'the second lime this season and youth who can do just about anything with a football from blowing it up to shoving it down the throats of the enemy. , 'Scores 23 Against Irish The 5-foot 11-inch, ,.186-pound junior halfback was honored for the almost unbelievable task of scoring 23 points against mighty Notre Dame last Saturday as the Trojans finished off an otherwise dismal season by throttling the Irish, 42-20, the worst beating they have taken in 10 years. But to Trojan fans, this was only part of the story.. To them. Arnetl's season record told a tale of the rebirth of a triple-lhrcat-man football at USC. For example. Arnett played 440 ,out of a possible 600 minutes during the Trojans' 10-game schedule —more than any other man on the team — and carried the ball 141 limes for a total of 672 yards, an average of 5.1 yards per crack. He led the Pacific-Coast Conference in scoring with 108 points; the most scored by a Trojan in one season since Kaer racked up H4 in the "Thundering Herd" days of 1D25. Arnett compiled his total with 15 touchdowns and'18 conversions out of 22 attempts. Sets Other Records In addition, he' completed 12 of his 25 attempted passes for 150 yards and caught six passes for 154 yards and Ihrce touchdowns. As a punter, he averaged a respectable 44,4 yards per boot, 'and he returned 16 enemy punts for Trojans gambol on the gridiron. With the fancy footwork "learned :rom eluding the police and agility derived from' his training 'in acro- Datics, Arnett was ,vhat is commonly called a ','flash" as a high school player at Manual Arts High in Los Angeles. Naturally, the scouts closed in on him in droves when he was ready to enter college, but USC won him hands down. Jon never considered another school.

Na- 282 yards. He set another all-time USC record by returning 15 kickoffs for a breathtaking total of 418 yards, a trait that earncd'him the respect of opposing teams.' But if Arnett is a one-man football team, one would never learn of it from him. Of .SC's brilliant victory over the Irish after three straight defeats, he said simply: "It was just because the whole team played well. We all got going and it just kind of snowballed." Actually, Arnctl was born to the Cardinal and Gold of USC. He has lived the 20 years of his life within two miles of the campus and, even as a youngster, dreamed of leading the Trojans in triumph on the football field. Drcnm Comes True He began playing football when he was six years old and soon discovered a way to snenk into the nearby Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to watch his beloved lional Football League are organizing a barnstorming basketball team and would like to play in Cumberland January 1 Followers of Wesl Virginia University basketball will find more and better seats in the first house at Morgantown this season. . . New telescopic bleachers have been installed on three sides, increasing the capacity in addition to making available more space for physical education classes and other activities. . . A balcony, 160 feet long and six feet wide, has also been added. . . It provides for radio, television and motion picture facilities as well as a table for working newspapermen. . . The Mountaineers open their season Friday night at Morgantown against Carnegie Tech If Maryland coach Bud Millikan had his way, a new ten-second restraining line would be written into the college basketball rulebook. . . It is his idea that there should be a line ten feet out from the head of the foul circle. . . This, he reasons, would eliminate stalling maneuvers that are carried on in the vicinity of midcourl when a team is attempting to protect a lead. . . Millikan dislikes the NBA rule requiring; a team to shoot the ball within 24 seconds. . . He thinks his idea o( a new restraining line would be much hotter. . . Bud contends this part of the court isn't used enough by an offensive team. The United Press has four Maryland football players on its Ail-American squad, . . Center Bob Pellegrini made the first team, as lie has in every other selection, while end Bill Walker and tackle Mike Sandusky were second-team choices and halfback Ed Vereb was honored on the third team. 1,400,000 onlookers who lined the streets. "It was a little frightening to tell he truth," said Fishel, "they broke hrough the police lines and swarmed around our cars, asking for autographs and trying to touch the players." ' The crowds turned out despite orices that scaled up to about §3.35 'or box seats. This in a nation yvhere the average working man is 'ortunate to make the equivalent of $40 to $70 a month. The Yankees were highly impressed by the reception they received at Sapporo, the northernmost point they touched in Japan, which is only an hour and five minutes by air from Russian territory. In a drizzling rain, the game drew 32-,000. 4,500 Bikes Parked "There were about 4,500 bicycles outside the. park;" said Fishel. 'Some of the people traveled for 20 hours to get there. They began o show up at 1:30 in the morning, and the park was filled by 11." At the end of the tour, the Yankee players contributed- funds a trophy f or .the outstanding Japanese opponent they had faced. They voted the award to a shortstop, Yoshid Yoshida. "It was a little embarrassing," said Fishel. ".The day the trophy was presented to him in ceremonies before'the game, he made •wo errors." Manager Casey Stengel . and American League umpire John Stevens held clinics • almost daily. "If Casey had any big criticism," said Fishel, "I think it was that 'he Japanese don't adapt their 'ome to their physical capabilities. ,They try to swing for the fences, and they aren't built for it." Unfamiliar With Pickoff The Japanese also seemed unfamiliar with pickoff .plays, anc with the American practice o breaking up double plays by taking out the pivot man. A Yankee pick- off attempt boomeranged, however to" let the Central Pacific All-Stars Sain a 1-to-l tie in the only game the Yankees failed to win. Pitcher Whitey Ford beaned the umpire with his throw to second, and the runner scored. "The umpire didn't say a word," said Fishel. "But I guess Ford told himself plenty." vhile two each went to Big Seven ing Oklahoma, Big Ten champion Ohio State and Michigan, which lad the unprecedented honor of placing two ends on the mythical .earn.

When he came back, he couldn't find the money and went on to help ENMU defeat Washburn College 19-12.

Several New York newspapers published the report with the Daily Mirror stating that the familiar red and white polka dot colpr's 'of ;he Belair Stud, under which (two generations' of the Woodward family raced- their thoroughbreds, would be retired. Report Denied The Mirror story, under the by- ine of 'sports editor Dan Parker, said the decision had been reached by executors of the estate Woodward, a prominent sportsman socialite who was shot to death accidentally by his wife last October 30. . John W. Ludewig, one of the executors, denied the report, however.- "Everyone is free to speculate, of course," he said. "But no decision has been made in the mat : sr." A. B. Hancock Jr., owner of the Claiborne Farm near Paris, Ky., and a close personal friend of Woodward, also discredited the report. Nashua, who completed his 1955 campaign as the greatest year money :wo " weeks winner before of all time Woodward's death, . was shipped to the Claiborne Farm , last week for the winter. ' 2,500-Acre Farm At Bowie .The newspaper reports said the decision was made to sell Woodward's holdings 'because of the risky nature of a large investment n race horses while an estate is being handled by executors for minors who will not reach legal maturity for a decade or more. The holdings comprise 65 horses and the 2,500 acre Belair Farm at Bowie, Md. Woodward's two sons, in line'for the estate, are still of grade school age. William III is 11. His brother, James, is 7. • Disposition of the race holdings was not included in Woodward's will, since he inherited the Belair Stud following the death of his father in 1953 — after the will was made. He did not revise the will to include the new holdings.
