JTJI/Y N, MM BLT1HVTILLB '(MX.f OOUMBR PAGH5 Bosses Oppose Moving West NEW YORK (AP) — Realignment of baseball's major leagues to take in Kansas City, Los Angeles and San Fran Cisco is strongly opposed by at least three owners. The possible shift of several franchises to populous areas now ' supporting minor league bal! has been a red-hot Issue ever since the Braves were transferred from Boston to Milwaukee with marked Increase in gate receipts and the American League refused the Browns permission to move to Baltimore. Del Webb, co-owner of the New York Yankees, suggested at the recent major league meetings in Cincinnati that the American League transfer the Browns and the Philadelphia Athletics to Los Angeles and San Francisco. And earlier this week The Sport- Ing News, baseball publication, reported Bill Veeck's Browns are due to leave St. Louis for Kansas City. Other reports had the Phillies bowing out of Philadelphia if the Athletics dor't, with either Los Angeles or San Francisco as their destination. Owners Answer To these reports came answers from owner-president Bob Carpenter of the Phillies; Roy Mack, executive vice president of the I, Athletics and Clark Griffith, presi- jv j 'dent and owner of the Washington Senators. "I'm here to stay," said Carpenter. "If Webb thinks the Pacific Coast is such a swell place to have a ball club. Jet him move his own club out there and stop trying to run my business. "One of the troubles with big league baseb&Il now Is that International bankers and guys who get 10 million dollar federal building contracts are tryng to tell everyone else how to run his business. "Let them attend to their politics and contract and let me struggle building a ball club. I don't tell them what they should do and I don't welcome their advice on what I should do.' Previously, Mack said the Athletics were going to remain in Philadelphia. Griffith got into the discussion and expressed disapproval of suggested plans to shift the Browns to Kansas City. "It's not that I have anything against Kansas City," said Griffith. "It's just that they're not in our circuit geographically. I don't want any change that will increase our traveling difficulties." Griffith added he thought the American League should extend its territory no farther west than St. Louis, pointing out there are several cities such as Baltimore and Minneapolis that would be interested in taking over the St. Louis ranchise.

A six game winning streak and * sudden reversal of form by the World Champions enabled the. Cleveland club to narrow the gap and took some of the heat off Lopez- The Tribe's chief isn't out of the woods, however, especially after losing the last four of five in Chicago to drop eight-and-a-half games back of the New York club. Cleveland fans are tired of their annual second-place finish, and what's worse, the White Sox look as if they could beat them out of that. As the late Alva Bradley, onetime Cleveland owner, remarked: "We only hire the manager. The ns five him." Cleveland attendance has been disappointing- Poor attendance also could result in Jimmy Dykes being replaced as head of the Athletics. The same goes for Marty Marion and the Browne. 4 * « This is the open season on managers, but being fired is old hat to most of them, and they usually bounce back like your mother-in- law. Freddie Hutchinson of the Tigers is one of the few who hasn't been dismissed. The club played .50 *~ ball after the trade with the In dians, but something has to be don in Detroit. Brooklyn fans still remember vi vldly how their 1951 club blew IS'.s-game lead and the pennant t the hated Giants.

After tonight's affair the Oeceola team has one more week of regular their bid for the NEA Tournament Championship which will be played off in Wynne starting August Jrd. Rice Nearly Errorless PHILADELPHIA W) — Del Rice, catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, will remember his 64th game this year. After playing 63 games without an error he failed to hold » third strike pitch to Willie Jones, enabling the Phillies' third sacker to reach base safely. The pitcher for the Redbirds was Harvey Haddix. Rice was happy, however, at the ft- hamp, is considered his toughest for the 72-hole meet ending iSunday. The 6,500-yard Milburn Country Club course hasn't proved too much of a test for the golfers in "(practice rounds the past two days.

Lloyd Mangrum, the 1950 best gimmick for boosting college football attendance is the hiring of a new coach. So, at first glance, it's a surprise to know that the University of Arkansas' advance ticket sales are roughly 35 per cent behind last year's. than they were a year ago, for the advance sale opened later this summer. Nevertheless the decline in the number of fans buying their ducat early reflects somewhat the wa new Head Coach Bowden Wyatt op crates. Contrast Wyatt's actions wit those of Otis Douglas three year ago. When Douglas took over the Ra orback coaching reins, he painted pretty picture of victories. He ii herited a team which, though disai pointing, had managed to win ha] Its games the year before. Anc whether intentionally or not, Doug las led everyone to believe ohat th "pro system" he was Installing just the finishing touch needed t bowl over the opposition. Nine Wins in 3 Years It didn't work out that way.

He's using every opportunity to w: Arkansas followers not to expect much. He promises no victories— Just a hard working team. Wyatt was trained by Gen. Bob Neyland at Tennessee, and a oasic principle of the Neyland system is not to build up a team in advance —heap on the praise after the season ends. Therefore, you might expect Wyatt to be reticent even if he had the makings of a champion. Similar psychology helped Arkansas earn a Colon Bowl bid under John Earnhill, another Tennessee man, in 1946. No Letdown But Wyatt doesn't have to strain this year to create the proper psychology—a pschology which often paves the way for a big upset. His material comes from a team which won only two games last Tall and from, the freshman squad.
