PAGE 4— XATJGATPCK NEWS (COMf.), WEDNESDAY, OCT. 5, 1949 Yankees Favored In Series Opener Aflie Reynolds To Oppose Don Newcombe Or Preacher Roe CarlFurillp Doubtful Starter For Brooklyn The Brooklyn Dodgers are in danger of having one strike called against them even before the World Series opens today. It is believed the Dodgers will have to face the New York Yankees without the services "of their' ace outfielder. Carl Furillo. Brooklyn Manager Burt Shotton has put Furillo in his starting line-up,, but the hard-hitting outfielder wasn't at all optimistic after a work-out yesterday at Yankee Stadium. Furillo, who hit close to .400 for the last month, has been playing with a pulled muscle in his right groin. After yesterday's workout, Furil- lQ r snx>qk._his head and moaned, "I can't stride—I can't bend—i'i Just can't play this way." But maybe the weatherman will come to Shotton's assistance. The •Preacher Roe JUi Allic. Reynolds Don Newcombe forecast is for rain. And any postponement will give Furillo's injury more time to heal. However, the weatherman adds that although rain is forecast, indications are it •will not be steady enough to have to postpone the game. Brooklyn Lineup Shotton was able to announce his line-up after Yankee Manager Casey Stengel said he would start right-hander Allie Reynolds. Shotton says he will wait -until "Just before game-time" before making his pitching selection. The Dodger line-up is the one Shotton usually uses against right-handers. Shortstop Pee Wee Reese will lead off, followed by third baseman Johnny Jorgensen. Duke' Snider will be in center field and bat third. Second baseman Jackie Robinson will hit in the clean-up spot, followed by left fielder Gene Hermanski. Furillo will play right and bat sixth, with first baseman Gil Hodges Tutting seventh. Roy Campanella will catch and bat eighth, followed by the pitcher. The pitcher prob'ably will be either southpaw Preacher Roe or rookie Rrighty Don Newcombe. ' '*' The fiftK. sixth and Seventh spots in the Yankee lineup will remain up in the air until Shotton names his pitcher. Shortstop Phil Rizzuto will lead off.

Etr Banquet Room, Cocktail Lounge Full Liquor License Tommy Henrich bats second, followed by Catcher Larry Berra and center fielder Joe DiMaggio. At third, batting in the fifth slot, will be either righty-swinging Billy Johnson or Bobby Brown, who cuts from the left side of the plate. Johnny Lindell, who hits righty, or lefty-swinging Gene Wodling, will play left. It's the same in right field. Batting seventh will be either Cliff Mapes, a southpaw hitter, or Hank Bauer. Second baseman Gerry Coleman will hit eighth, followed bv Reynolds. Umpires The umpires will be Cal Hubbard behind the plate 1 , "Beans" Reardon on first, Art Passarella at second and Lou Jorda on third. Two other umpires, Ed Hurley and George Barr, will be along the foul lipps in the outfield'. Should Furillo be side-lined, the Yankees probaby will be heavier favorites than they are now. Despite the odds, both managers predict a close Series. 'Just look at the two ball clubs," says Stengel, "and how can you pick between them?" Shotton sizes up the Series this way: 'Probably the breaks will decide the winner. I said all winter we'd win the pennant," reminds Shotton. 'and we did. Now, I say we'll win the Series, and we will. But. it's going to take a lot of doing." Another ''pitcher' . has been named for today, the one who will toss out the first ball. Nine-year- old Bruce Howard, an infantile paralysis victim from New York, has been handed the honored assignment. Bruce, who Says he's a "fast ball southpaw," will be the guest of Commissioner A. B. Chandler. The youngster says, "my Mom is a Dodger fan. Dad likes the Yankees. But me, Im neutral for the Series." Rooney-Valles Bout Set For Oct. 17 New Haven. Oct. 5 — Jimmy Rooney of Bridgeport, the featherweight firebrand who won his i last two ftghti? here by quick and clear, cut knockouts, returns to the wars at the Arena on Monday, Oct. 17, against a reputable onucher in Tito Valles of New York. Rooney is shooting for a chance at the New England 126 pound championship jbut with Valles as the next enemy he'll have to con- .ceatrate his fire.

The same Hegeman posted a victory by decision over Rooney in Madison Square Garden. BUTKUS \tlantic Service Station Fern and Chestnut Sts. NOW OPEN! !

The loss knocked Vigeant out of contention for a shot at the state title. . ~ , Mace spent most of the first six rounds backing away from Vigeant, but while doing that, he had his left continually in the Thomaston fighter's face, cutting It to ribbons. • Finally the Thomaston battler made one last ditch attempt for a knockout, succeeded in staggering Mace with a stiff right hand.. but was in turn 1 dropped to the canvas by a whistling right. The count was never finished. Vigeant cast one pleading look to his corner and another at Referee John Cluney and that was all. He had been cut over both eyes. His left crb had swollen shut. Jlood had poured from his nose rom the second round on. He just firew every last ounce of his ebb- ng strength into that seventh ound attack and when it failed e didn't have anything left. The .weights were Mace 150 and Hgeant 146. Mace earned the right o fight Sal DiMartino for a shot t the sta,te title currently held by 7ic Cardelli 100-Mile Race Slated For Langhorn, Pa., Sunday, Oct. 16 Langhorne, Pa., Oct. 5—Final placing in the American Automobile Association's 1949 national championship point standing are certain to be affected by results of the 100-mile big car race listed fo'r Sunday, October 16, at Lang home -Speedway.

Springfield, UConn Game Saturday M'ay Be Hi^h Scoring Affair Storrs, Conn., Oct. 5 — A sellout crowd is almost a certainty Saturday when Springfield and Connecticut come to grips in a foot- aall -'natural" at Pratt Field in Springfield. Both teams are expected to be in top condition for a contest which has all the earmarks ot being a wide open .free-scoring affair. Definitely one of the strongest small college teams in New England, Springtle^d will enter the game fresh from two easy triumphs. The Gymnasts walloped Cortland, 300, and then rolled up 35 points in a powerful first half showing against Maine last week. From all indications this week in practice sessions, the Uconns will feature a passing attack Saturday. While Coach J. O. Christian's men were not too impressive through the air against A.I.C, last week, one of the two TDs scored against the Springfield school was a 63-yard pass from Henry Zaleski. to Frank DeZenzo. If the Connecticut passes show some signs of clicking against the Gymnasts, it may open up the defense and allow the Uconns to put a better-than-average ground game to work. The Uconns thave been getting ready for the game all week. The varsity defensive players have had the Springfield plays run against them time after time, while the offensive unit has been brushing up on timing and assignments and learning new plays. All of the players as well as the coaches have also been busy studying pictures of last year's game when Springfield won, 10-7. Christian has warned his players repeatedly that the Gymnasts have • essentially the same men back, including Keith King, whose field goal won the game a year ago. Also still around for Springfield will be Bill Friberg, a triple threat back, and Bob D'Agostino, who scored all of his team's touchdowns against Maine. .

It isn't often that a head coach can talk about a coming opponent with such a degree of authority, but in Hickman's case he is speaking about what he himsel saw. Because when Yale's game wilth Fordham was canceled last week-end, Herman sat in at Baker Field as the Lions wrapped up Har vard, 14 to 7. "Columbia looked exceptionallj well drilled for the soptiomore nrroup I was expecting to see," sale Herman ,and added, "no coach has ever done a better job of getting sophomores ready than Lou Little has done with his current team." Ho continued: 'I saw something that few laymen notice-^-the defensive strength of the team—which is much better than it was a year ago." Last year a Harvard team, probably not as strong as the 1949 edi- :ion, rolled up 33 points against Columba, but on Saturday one first minute touchdown was all the Crimson could garner. As a matter of fact in nine games last season the Lions were nicked for 177 points, an average of three touch- dpwns per contest. In two games this -year, they have been scored on just twice. Hickman was lavish in his praise of Vern Wynott, the 18-year-old Belmont, Mass., beauty who ran back a Crimson kickoff for 91 yards, and termed Leon VanBell- ingham "about the hardest running back in the East." jpect.'vely. >ov. ler for Ji'gwlshen led the Bronsdnites.
