Captures Bowie Breeders Orioles Fail To Pic IB e Bra layer in Major r SUN $7,500 Stakes Til AT Leagu 13 SELECTED BY 9 CLUBS FOR $122,000 Clemente, Flock's Firs f Choice , Is Taken By Pittsburgh By LOU HATTER ' I Sun Staff Correspondent v New York, Nov. 22 Beaten to the punch by Pittsburgh and the ' Chicago Cubs, the Orioles ab stained from selecting any pros pects in the major-league draft today while nine other clubs picked 13 players from the minor- league pool at a total outlay of 5122,000. Eight pitchers, three outfield ers, a shortstop and a catcher were selected, matching exactly last year's draft total. Kansas City led with three choices one a de cayed pick. ' The Cubs and Cincinnati Reds each elevated two athletes for observation next spring while, in addition to Pittsburgh, Washing ton, Detroit, Boston, Milwaukee and the New York Giants each exercised their draft rights once. Clemente Most Sought A total of 3,640 minor-leaguers were eligible. Roberto Clemente, a 20-year old Puerto Rican outfielder of j tremendous speed and potential. was Baltimore s primary objec tive when Commissioner Ford Frick called the 20-minute session to order. But Clemente s talents he is currently hitting .380 for San Juan in the Puerto Rican Winter League apparently have become known throughout , baseball. Pirates Get First Choice The Pirates, first to draft this year by virtue of their last-place National League finish in 1954, snatched him up at a $4,000 bargain as fast as 3ranch Rickey, Jr., Pittsburgh vice president, could say "Roberto Clemente." Pittsburgh paid only that token sum because Clemente, as a bonus player, received more than $4,000 (reportedly between $15,000 and . $20,000) to sign with the Brooklyn Dodger organization out of Fuerto Rico. Draftees from clubs of theTta-ternational League Triple-A caliber of Montreal normally bring a flat price of $10,000. Art Ehlers, acting on Instructions from Manager-General Manager Paul Richards who did not attend this morning's meeting ' here, traveled to New York holding just one other ace up his sleeve. Birds Come. Fourth ' Because the Birds, seventh in the American League last summer, came fourth in the inverse order of selection, Ehlers never got a chance to play that one either.- . ,After Kansas City (second to be ; polled as successor to the American League's doormat Philadelphia Athletics) had claimed Arthur Ceccarelli, a southpaw strikeout specialist who won 15 and lost 12 for Birmingham, of the Double-A Southern Association, the Cubs indirectly snuffed out Baltimore's lone re maining hope. The National League's seventh- place Bruins by-passed the Orioles' other desired selectee believed to have been First Baseman Bob Boyd on the Rochester roster, but, by naming Outfielder James King from the same affiliation, closed the International League Red Wings from further draft inroads, according to the rules of baseball. Only One From A Club With certain exceptions, only one player may be drafted from any single minor-league team, that club thereafter becoming exempt for the year. Later today, it was learned that It was unlikely Baltimore would have taken Boyd, a .319 slugger at Houston last summer before being transferred to Rochester, even if the opportunity had existed. Richards, who managed Boyd with the White Sox in 1951 and 53, reportedly changed his mirtd over the week end. The youthful Clemente batted only .257 during 86 games for Brooklyn's Montreal farm club but obviously was the prize package in this year's annual grab-bag operation. It developed that not only Pittsburgh but Kansas City and the Cubs, as well as the Orioles, (Continued on Page 31 Column 4) Records Of 13 Drafted Players New York.

The suit is the first in which a minor league club seeks to re strict the activities of the major leaguers. Also pending against the same defendants is a $12, 000,000 suit by Liberty Broad casting, charging the majors with refusing it permission to broad cast games. Today s suit named Ford C Frick, baseball commissioner, and the American and National League clubs. Frick, busy with the annual major league draft of players, would not comment on the suit except to admit service of the papers. The suit was filed by Frank D Lawrence, owner o the Ports mouth Merrimacs of the eighth club Class B Piedmont League It was entered in Federal Court. Lawrence estimated shortly after the World Series that the Piedmont had lost $150,000 dur ing 1954 because of a lack of attendance and -predicted that the league would be unable to operate next season "unless the majors give some aid for the damages done." EXPANSION OUT IN NATIONAL League Feels 10-Team Circuit Is Not Practical Now New York, Nov. 22 (JP) Presi dent Warren Giles, of the Nation al League, satisfied himself today that no ciub in the league wants to move now or desires to expand the circuit to ten teams immediately. They find it is not practical at this time," said Giles after league executives had spent most of the day revising parts of the major- league constitution. Not Enough Ballplayers The questions of moving fran chises or expanding the league didn't come up formally. since neither was on the agenda. But Giles said the matters were discussed informally. "There just aren't enough ball players around to maintain the high standard of play we want to give the public," he said. Picture May Change t ' Giles conceded, however, that perhaps the picture will change in the next five years but he sees no shifts of franchises within the next two or three years. Originally, it appeared as the league executives would also be in session tomorrow but they wound up their business tonight in time for a late dinner. 'enn Eleven Prepares For Cornell Thursday Philadelphia, Nov. 22 (JP) Penn's football team held a workout under the lights tonight in preparation for the Thanksgiving Day meeting with Cornell at Franklin Field. For tonight's session, Penn lined up with John Lavin and Jim Castle at the ends, Fred Dustin and Howard Jackson at the tackles, Jim Shada and Ben Kinloch at the guards and Jim Kopenhaver at center. In the starting backfield were Jack McCarthy at quarterback. Walt Hynoski and Bob Lebengood at the halfback posts, and Stan Chaplin at fullback. Rated only an outside chance of seeing action against Cornell are Quarterback Jim Manley, Right Halfback Gary Scott and Tackle Bernie Rohrbacker, all hurt in the Army game. Tebbetts Sees Trade Aiding Birds By LOU HATTER New York, Nov. 22 "Don't pass . judgment on a deal until has had a chance to jell," advised Cincinnati's manager, Birdie Tebbetts, on a subject that was a conversation-piece every where today at the annual major-league draft meeting here. That, of course, would be last week's electrifying trade, converting Oriole Pitchers Bob Turley and Don Larsen and Shortstop Billy Hunter into Yankees in exchange for Outfielder Gene Wood-ling, Shortstop Willie Miranda, First Baseman Gus Triandos, Catcher Hal Smith and Pitchers Harry Byrd and Jim McDonald. "2 Outstanding Prospects" "It took a lot of guts for Paul Richards to engineer a swap like that," declared the 40-year-old National League skipper and former catcher, who brought the Redlegs home in fifth place only a game out of fourth in his rookie National League . managerial season. "Both sides apparently got what they wanted, and it certainly puts Baltimore in a far better trading position. "And don't fear that the Orioles haven't come up with some pretty fair ball players.

SMITH The Baltimore Bullets received an assist in any further negotia tions which may solve their finan cial problems when Station WAAM-TV reported yesterday it would consider clearing televi sion time, for the team's home games. Other 'than that small ray of hope, the Bullets spend another 24 hours in fruitless search trying to scare up enough interested capital to keep the National Basket ball Association franchise in Bal timore. One rumor claiming Jerry Hoff berger, president of a local brew ery, was considering purchasing the Bullets was quickly squelched. A source close to the situation declared the entire story was un founded and that Hoffberger def mitely had no interest in, taking over tne trancnise. Plan Saturday Telecasts The Bullets are not being tele vised nor broadcast this season and WAAM's decision may re move a sore point in any discus sions ahead. Prospective buyers had felt without television opera tional costs would soar sky high. The station would put the Bullets before the cameras on Saturday's after 10 P.M. Maurice Podoloff, National Bas ketball Association president, at the same time made a plea to those groups that are serious on rescuing the Bullets to hurriedly get together and form a concentrated plan, but no progress, with Upeed so important, was reported in that direction late last night. A league spokesman earlier an nouneed that Podoloff's emer gency meeting to discuss Balti more s plight had been changed from today until Friday's final deadline in New York after a telephone poll with owners in the major league's eight other entries. Franchise Won't Return Mr. Podoloff first called the meeting for Tuesday," the official continued, "figuring it would enable, the members to return to their homes for Thanksgiving. However, most of the owners wanted it the other way, feeling they would rather be on hand to act after Friday's final decision. Maybe most Baltimoreans think this situation is a joke. It isn t. Baltimore is about to lose major-league franchise," the pokesman warned. "There, are only three days left to fina a new owner before Friday's meet- ng. Here s a warning once the franchise goes it's not coming back." - Ned Irish, boss of the New York Knickerbockers, added, "I have been trying to get more information on this situation. I am not eager to see any team fall out. I am in favor of more teams. You've got a pretty fair basketball club down there. It's much better than last year's." Beri Kerner, who runs the Milwaukee Hawks, agreed with Irish. He declared, "the Bullets have some real good ballplayers on their team. This Frank Selvy is quite a shooter and a drawing card. And Don Henriksen impresses me as one of the better cagers in this league." 4 BIRDIE TEBBETTS a real pro, and Miranda is a real sound shortstop.

Coach Jim Tatum kept the drills light. Heavy contact work, including a full-scale scrimmage will be held today, Tatum said. During dense drills, Tatum worked the Terps on ways of stop ping Missouri's throwing from the spread formation. Coach Don Faurot, of Missouri, runs his team from the spread and the split-T.

Missouri Plans Light Drill For Terp Game Columbia, Mo., Nov. 22 (JP) The University of Missouri foot ball squad took it easy today and faces a comparatively light prac tice session tomorrow to wind up preparations for its game with the University of Maryland at College Park Thursday. Coach Don Faurot said the squad came through Saturday's engagement with Kansas without injury of consequence, but that John Hurley, end, and Charles Mehrer, guard, out of action since the Oklahoma game two weeks ago, still are not ready to go. Martinez To Fight Andrews Next Month New York, Nov. 22 (JP) Vince Martinez, who recently reported he had turned down a $20,000 bribe offer to throw a fight, was matched 'today with Al Andrews, of Superior, Wis. for a 10-round welterweight bout, December 10 at Madison Square Garden. Martinez, flashy Paterson, N.J., prospect, stopped Carmine Fiore in the seventh round, October 29 after spurning an alleged bribe.

HERMAN Sun Staff . Correspondent Annapolis, Nov; 22 Navy's foot ball team worked out in sweat suits today as the Midshipmen began their final week of prepara tion for Saturday s fifty-fifth game against Army in Philadelphia's Municipal Stadium. Hoping to avoid any damaging injuries this close to the annual Service Academy classic. Coach Eddie Erdelatz plans to take it easy with no full scrimmages scheduled. Drills will be held this afternoon, tomorrow and Thurs day morning. The team will work out in Phialdelphia Friday after noon. Lauds Navy Spirit Erdelatz did his best to .avoid mention of Saturday's game. In stead he continued to laud Navy s fine team spirit and once again singled out certain incidents of the last season about his 1954 eleven a squad he has often called "A team named desire." But when he did talk of Satur day's game, Erdelatz had only praise for Red Blaik s once-beaten Cadets. Army Attack Tops Incommenting on scoutin&re- ports, the Navy cocah said "Army can do everything well. And that Vann (Quarterback Pete Vann): Can he fake he fooled us so last year we haven't found the ball yet." Army is tops nationally in total offense and rushing. The Cadets can pass. Vann is ninth in total offense and Tommy Bell ranks thirteenth. Bell is third in rush ing, averaging 11.3 yards for 82 carries.

Manghi was not injured, race officials said. Meantime, Umberto Maglioli, a pipe smoking Italian wno laughs at danger, took both of today s legs and knocked three minutes off his old record in doing it. There was no reason for Mag lioli to drive his flame-red 4.9 liter Ferrari so hard except his love for speed and his disdain of danger. He started the fourth day with a ten-minute lead over second place Phil Hill, of Santa Monica, Cal., in a 4.5 Ferrari and finished with a 25-minute ad vantage. With only tomorrow's 222-mile lap remaining, and Maglioli the recordholder on it, the Italian is the apparent victor in the Big Sports Car Class in this five day race.

Navy is a better drilled team than it was a year ago, Amen said. It has more mobility. The linemen are quick and agile and are all over the field. And Navy's short passing game also has improved It has been effective this year in every game in which the Middies needed to pass. In addition, the Army scout saw Navy as a team with "great desire" and confidence. "I hope they don t have a monopoly on desire," he added. ness Is punting, where their aver age is a poor 29.3 yards. But they have had to kick but 21 times in eight games. Navy can nearly match this showing. The Middies are second in offense, ninth in rushing, tenth in passing, first in total defense and third in rushing defense. But the Tars have no individual stand outs, a factor which brought them a 6-2 season record. It has all been a team effort.

Tittle, Another Old Colt, Back To Haunt Former Team By CAMEROK If the Colts are philosophical as they approach their last home game of the 1954 season, it's through necessity not design. They lust have to accept at face value the old saying "things are never so bad they couldn't be worse." The mighty San Francisco Forty-Niners will be at the Stadium Sunday. Tittle Returns And with the Coast football team will be Y. A. Tittle, former Colt quarterback who has reached the top of his profession as a Forty-Niner. It seems the Colts are lust haunted by their former players. Last Sunday, Chick Jagade and Billy Stone ran over and around the Colts as the Chicago Bears won, 28 to 13. Jagade and Stone also played with the old Colts. Wa -X Sunoaoers photo Nolan first race of opening Bowie card SMITH STOPS FOE IN NINTH Drops McBride 3 Times To Win T.K.O. At St. Nick's New York, Nov. 22 (JP) Board walk Billy Smith, the No. 1 light heavyweight contender, dropped Archie McBride three times to night to win on-a technical knock out In 2.58 of the ninth round at St. Nicholas Arena. ' Smith weighed 173VS, McBride 184 pounds. McBride's crowding style both ered the prison guard from Mays Landing. N.J., in the early rounds but Smith caught up with him in the seventh. Barrage Floors McBride Twice a barrage of punches floored McBride for a nine count in the seventh. He was rocky and badly shaken at the bell. Smith, a l-to-3 favorite, was bothered by McBride's left hook all night. When McBride, a 25 year-old Trenton (N.J.) boxer swarmed over Smith, he was in control. Only when Boardwalk Billy could get punching room could he hit McBride the way he wanted to. A savage right to the jaw dropped McBride for nine late in the ninth. He came in for more, but Referee Mark Conn stopped it as two more short rights leu McBride sagging against the ropes. Judge Has Loser Ahead On one of the official cards. Judge Nick Gamboli's, McBride was ahead, 4-3-1, going into the ninth round. Judge Arthur Suss- kind had Smith in front, 5-3, and Referee Mark Conn had it 4-3-1 for Smith. McBride's hooks seemed to dis courage Smith in the early rounds and his style nullified the favorite s long punches. The tide turned suddenly in the sixth when Smith boxed at long range and set up McBride for the two knockdowns m the seventh. McBride managed to come back some in the eighth but couldn't stand up under Smith's right hand fire in the ninth.

Tittle No Rookie Jagade and Stone made Zeke Bratkowski's task fairly simple Sunday. Bratkowski, an untried rookie quarterback, counted heavily on his two teammates and they never let him down. Tittle is no rookie. He has the best throwing arm in the National Football League and also has a set of fast elusive runners to take over when the defense tightens against aerials. The courageous Tittle, who just several weeks ago played an entire game with a broken hand, looks forward to playing in Baltimore. He always tries his best, but when here he adds just a little extra to his efforts.

Lamar Creswell's Mister C. L. seemed hopelessly beaten when he gave up the lead at the three-furlong marker in today's $7,500-added Bowie Breeders Stakes, but he produced a new burst of speed in the stretch and won going away at only $4.40 for $2. When Mister C. L. came on well in the last furlong, Mrs. L. L. Voight, Jr.'s Her Hero, who had taken the lead at the far turn, almost collapsed and just managed to stagger home in second place. Mrs. M. G. Christmas's Rosey Miss closed well enough to ba third, about a neck behind Her Hero and a length to the fore of Watson Elliott's Bernice W. Jack Sell Disappoints The big disappointment in the six-horse race was Shamrock Stable's Jack Sell, who was second choice at 9-to-5 odds due to having won his previous race at Pimlico when a loudly touted paddock tip. Jack Sell flashed some early speed and then faltered to finish, last. Norman Cox rode Mister C L, and had the Harford county-bred son of Daily Dip and Teddy Lass in front when the field swung into the backstretch run of the, mile-and-a-sixteenth test. Mister C L seemed to give up the lead willingly when Her Hero challenged, but apparently was merely getting his second wind. Conditioned for the endurance test by Raymond Archer, of Bel Air, Mister C L was ridden completely out when he carried his 111-pound burden over the finish line in 1.462;. 9,565 Fans Attend The opening of the 12-day Southern Maryland Agricultural Association meeting drew 9.565 turfgoers who wagered $822,650 on the eight well-filled events. Bowie's fall meeting opened on Wednesday, November 18, last fall and 9,583 fans bet a total of $857,028. The lightning-fast condition of the Bowie racing strip this season was emphasized by the early races of the initial program. In the fourth race, an allowance test, J. A. Dakin's Hood -Itinff equalled a 25-year-old track record when he scampered six furlongs in 1.10 to win by three lengths from O Vicento's Fast Cash with Mrs. Z. Cohen's Boy D'Amour, the favorite, third. Cutshaw's Second Winner The second winner of the pro gram for Oliver Cutshaw, Hoop King went to the front early in the short run and lengthened his advantage through the stretch while returning a win mutuel of $11 for $2. The track record was originall set by Greenock who turned his fast three-quarter run on Novem ber 28 of 1929. Since Hoop Ring is only a fair sort of horse, the mark is expected to fall before-the end of this meeting if the course remains in its present con- union. Sent seven furlones In th fifth race, Montpelier's Tiberian . missed a track record of 1.23 2-5, nem Dy enocc, by only three fifths of a second when he won by four lengths from J. J. Colan-do's Crown's Glory, which was just a nose in front of A. J. 1 O Connell's Tony's Chance. Ray York Rescues Jockey Longden Albany, Cal., Nov. 22 6P Tordito won today's featured Red Leaf purse at Golden Gate Fields racetrack, but what had the fans talking was Jockey Ray York's daring rescue of Johnny Longden from a fallen horse. Longden, famed as one of American turfdom's millionaire riders, was aboard I'm Going in the second race when the horse shied suddenly in the post parade and rolled over the outside fence in front of the stands. York jumped off Mercenary and rushed to Longden's aid. The vet eran jockey was unconscious- in the ditch with the horse sprawled over him. The horse had his right rear leg hung in the fence and every time he moved his rear leg it hit Longden in the head. The horse's slightest move appeared certain to crush the jockey. York straddled I'm Going, push ing the horse's weight away from Longden, and soothed the horse. He told fans who rushed to the rail to keep away. Then he kept the horse in position while others dragged Longden free. Longden was taken to the track hospital and released after a com plete checkup. VI
