6 i&wirv'"t' Pari 4 1 HTJT 'Automotive r Financial SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 19.ii. -With Iflaliee Toward None';f&r By BILL LEE Sports Editor VjANAGERS of the Boston Red Sox and New York IVl lie. out of the West last week and had their say right out in pub- Miceli Mayoes Echols In Third Roun SO Yale Quintet Defeats. Army Five 83 to Lou Boudreau of the Red Sox was emphatic His club had a real good chance to win the pennant in 1954. , "I couldn't say that last year." Lou reminded hii listeners. "We didn't have a chance. We were still concerned with the youth movement. We were building rather htan getting ready to fight it out with the Yankees. Now we've improved and we've made changes that make us the equal of the Xnkees in everything save pitching. We can slug it out with them toe to toe." Stengel of the Yankees does not speak with the same clarity as his young rival. He makes it plain, however, that his pitching mainstays of five pennant-winning seasons are getitng old. That the Yankees will be in a bad way if Harry Byrd doesn't take up a lot of slack in a fact Stengel doesn't try to conceal. He admits he would feel better if he had a solid left-hander like Billy Pierce. Otherwise, Stengel does not concede that the Red Sox, or any other club, is up to the feat of slugging toe to toe with his Yankees. "A lot of our men have improved and can do more things," Stengel muses. . What men? Well, if Mantle's knee survives the operation of early winter the Oklahoma kid cant help being better. He is younger than spring time with a potential greater than any member of any other contending club. Woodling and Bauer are not old men. With a season of almost daily participation tinder their belts, they should be better. It took Woodling and Bauer a few years to convince Stengel they were too good to be two-platooned. BERRA STILL GETTING BETTER Billy Martin would surely be an improved ball player, but Martin may turn out to be a lost cause. The Army wants him. Mar tin even now is awaiting the result of his appeal from classification for immediate drafting into military service. It's 2 to 1 Martin is a dead duck. At best, this means a weakened bench. The Yankees hope their Gerry Coleman is as good as new. Yogi Berra is still growing. He'll get better every year for a while. So Will Gil McDougald, but there is another trouble spot for Stengle besides pitching. HLs shortstop, Phil Rizzuto, is the best in the business, perhaps even a shade better than Pee Wee Reese, but he is one Yankee who can't be any better. Fact he, he has been a little worse the past few years solely for reasons of age. 3'. 1 ft Stengel The Red Sox outfield of Williams, Jensen and Piersall rates over the Yankees because Williams is all by himself as a hitter and Piersall stands alone as a defensive genius. The Yankee infield on the other hand, would have to get the nod unless Rizzuto is unable to play more than 75 games. Milt Boiling is not a sure fire established shortstop in Brodueau's mind and George Kell has a chrome back trouble. ' The Yankees have a big bulge at first base, where each team will be experimenting to some extent. Dick Gernert doesn't hit often enough, although he has good power. Boudreau thinks Harry Agganis, only a year out of college, may beat Gernert out of the job. Joe Collins is better than either of them, although he is not a prime favorite with Stengel, who has a strong hunch that Skow- ron, up from Kansas City after being converted from an outfielder, may oe me regular nrst Daseman in Yankee Stadium. IT ALWAYS GETS BACK TO PITCHING Kven Boudreau admits that Yogi Berra is a better catcher than his own Sammy White, but Lou takes White over every other recejver in the league. Summed up, therefore, it may be that Boudreau is more optimistic than the facts warrant. On the other hand, the Yank ees have slipped a little and the Red Sox will be tremendously improved, what with Williams available for the full season and Jensen swinging in place of weak-hitting Tom Umphlett. As baseball arguments always do, this one must revert largely to one department of the game pitching. The Yankees have pitchers who have proved themselves the best in the league. The Red Sox are terribly thin in that phase of the game. But the top Yankee pitchers, Reynolds, Raschi and Lopat, have reached the dangerous age. The Red Sox have a chance to suddenly come even with the Yankees. Mel Parnell and Leo kiely are dependable. Several others are fair. If the Red Sox could develop one good one from among their young pitchers, they would have an excellent chance. The feat of coming up with a big winner from the rookie crop has been done many times before. 1 Coach's Son Sparks Elis To Victory NEW HAVEN, Jan.- 30 VPs Dave Hobson. son of Yale's basketball coach, tallied 12 points in the decisive final quarter to pace his team to a 83-71 triumph over Army here tonight. Hobson, and Yale's Captain Spence Schnaitter, who led the scoring with 23 points, were the key pointmakers in the last quarter drive in which the vic tors outscored the Cadets. 29-17. The teams were deadlocked at the end of the third period. 54- an. Tied IS Times With five minutesleft to go, Schnaitter tallied from under neath the basket to put Yale in front. 68-66. and the Blue was never header after that. The score was tied 13 times during the exciting contest. Hobson's total was 18. Mark Binstein led Army with 21 points, and was instrumental in giving the cadets an eight point lead in the middle of the third period. Vale's Fifth Win The Elis, back in action after a two-week exam period, broke fast and led 20-18 at the close of the first period. But the Cadets gained the upper hand at 6:30 of the next session, 28-26, as Nor-ris Harbold hit on a push shot Army neid late to but nine points in the second quarter to lead 34-29 at ha If time. Frank Demcak and Chuck Ross of the winners fouled out in the last quarter, as did Army's Ed Weaver. The win was Yale's fifth against 10 losses. Army has now won eight and lost five.

Mantis Boiling Interesting is the commentary of Jack Onslow that Williams playing a full season and Jensen in the regular batting order would add 200 runs to the Red Sox total of 1953. Boudreau took cogni zance of this estimate at a meeting with the press of New England last Wednesday. Last year the Yankees had 762 runs in the RBI column and 139 homers. The Sockers had 613 runs batted in and 101 homers. Another 200 would make them superior to the Yankees and Boudreau made it plain that he expects the Fenway swingers to produce more runs than their New York rivals in 1931. : ' ' , No mater how you cut it up, it makes for interesting speculation. The 1954 season could well be the most stirring in recent years. The very least you can say about the Red Sox is that they have come a long way in- a year. if -k -k -k CHASTE TO HELP MILK O DIMES ' ' Officially, the Mile O'Dimes Drive ended yesterday, hut, as always, there are upcoming events that come a little late and the income from which will be an important part of the total, Two that come to mind are the basketball double header at Bloomfield High School tomorrow night and the basketball, vaude ville and dancing program ar- M , ; ranged for Saturday night at New-Ington Senior High School gymnasium, This writer had to work at The Hartford Courant many long years before there were enough athletes around the place to form a strong competitive team, but we have such now.

Bud Vye set the scoring pace for the Maroons with 17 points. Clayton Bywaters hopped 12. while Frank Januszewski and Harry Good scored 11 each. Wesleyan was in contention all the way but couldn't quite get the upper hand The Maroons led 19-18 at the end of the first quarter and 36-35 at halftime, but Wesleyan scored three quick hoops at the start of 1he third period to go out in front, 41-38. Springfield came right back with eight straight poin'.s and stayed in front to the finish. '; Hazen Gets 18 Leading by three points going into the last two minutes, the Gymnasts went into a stall.- This worked until Pete Nixon of the Cards stole an errant pass and reduced the Springfield lead to a sum 63-62. Bywaters then restored the lead in the final 25 seconds with a rebound basket Three Wesleyan players did some heavy scoring. Bobby Hazen netted 18 points, Larry Tremper collected 17 and Nixon wound up MARILYN SPORTS INJURED THUMB: Marilyn Monroe sported a splint on her right thumb as she and husband Joe DiMaggio arrived at the International airport.

Robinson came in two days later NEW YORK, Jan. 30 (UP-The St. Louis Cardinals agreed today to "reconsider" their plan for an extended network of radio broadcasts into minor league territory after George Trautman. head of the minors, protested vigorously that "you are hastening our doom." Dick Meyer, general manager of the Cardinals, met with Trautman "to explore the matter further, although I don't know if we can change our plans." Trautman, who said he was prompted mainly by the Cardinal action, appeared before a joint meeting of the major leagues and renewed his plea to stop saturating minor league territory with broadcasts and telecasts of major league games. Friendly Meeting That was the highlight of the major league meetings in which .Hank Greenberg of Cleveland, a member of the special pension committee, stated that "the club owners at no time have harbored any thoughts of stopping the pension plan, and that there was no serious disagreement with the players on any phase of it." Greenberg and John Galbreath of Pittsburgh, the other member of the commitfee, reported to the could not successfully defend their policy of broadcasting into towns where they own "the clubs as farm teams, "because what are you going to do about the visiting club (hat is hurt by the reduced gate receipts."
