Ralph Kiner, the lithe, handsome young Pirate outfielder who has been a sensation in his second year in the majors with the great parade of home runs, is almost too timid to discuss his prowess. "It's a little hard to figure how this has happened to me," said the Alhambra youth the other evening in the Forbes Field clubhouse. "It's easy to figure," spoke tip big Hank Greenberg, his tutor and virtual guardian, who lives out of the adjoining locker. SHARPENED HIS EYE "Ralph has sharpened his eye. He isn't going for those bad. balls that held down his hitting last year. He's opened his stance a little and. stands closer to the plate. He's positively the finest hitting prospect in the majors today and I'll be greatly surprised if he doesn't break all the home run records before he's through." Kiner, a becomingly modest lad who must be a foot shorter than Big Hank and hardly big enough, you would think, to hit 51 homers in a season, gave Greenberg an appreciative glance and said: "Hank is responsible for my Improvement all of it." VNaw, I'm not," said Greenberg. "All you needed was confidence that you could do it. Baseball Standings PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE Team W. L. Pet.

SCORE John Naumu, Trojan halfback, is shown here on his PAUL ZIMMERMAN spom foTo Maybe I've helped give you that." It's interesting to hear the several opinions of why Kiner, no giant, hits such a long ball. Let it be said that only 13 of his hits have fallen in Greenberg garden or Kiner corner as they now are calling the shortened left field fence at Forbes Field- Actually, this fence ranges from 330 to 342 feet from home plate, as deep as a lot of big league parks. FIXE ARM ACTION Walker Cooper, the Giants catcher, says he never saw finer arm action in a hitter. His power seems to be in his wrists and forearms. Old Hon-us Wagner came wobbling by and said Kiner's power was in his elbows and we presume the Pirate patriarch meant the forearms, too. Ralph has been more than a little disappointed over the fact that the opposing pitchers walked him so much in the dying days of the season when he had a chance at both Babe Ruth's 60-homer record 'and Hack Wilson's 56 for the National League. "That's baseball, of course," said Ralph, "but it makes you fish for a bad one occasionally, hoping to be able to connect." Here Greenberg spoke up again. "It's really tough for a young hitter like Kiner or any hitter for that matter to play in a line-up where the pitcher can safely pass him to get at the next guy. The same thing goes for Ted Williams with Boston. NO SUPPORT "When Ruth was going strong the pitchers didn't dare walk him as much. He always had tough hitters following him. Unfortunately, Kiner has no such hitting support." Greenberg just shrugs his shoulders over his own misfortunes this season. He doesn't know how his arm will be or what he will do next year, but the scribes all say that Hank has earned his purchase price and pay for what he's done with Kiner. We have an idea that Hank is advising Kiner these days on a lot of the money-making aspects that face the new star. He's been through the mill and knows all the angles. There's almost a father-son affection between them. Ralph says he might play a few exhibition games, probably with Bob Feller's troupe, but after that he's going home and concentrate on golf at the Southern California Golf Club, which is near his home. He shoots in the 80's. RALPH TIRED OUT "I'm tired out. I'll stay East for the World Series. I've never seen a World Series. But I'm anxious to get back home. There's no place like Southern California." There is one final touch about the lad who is just about the only attraction the Pirates had in their final days when they were deep in the league cellar regions. He's not only popular with the fans, he's a great favorite of his teammates. But the real tip-off is that every baseball writer you meet not only extols Ralph's virtues as a hitter. The scribes always wind up by adding: "And he's a fine boy, too." P.S. You can't pay any athlete a finer tribute. Bears Sink 14-7 Before BY RUSS BERKELEY, Sept. 27. (JP) turned in one of the smashing by defeating Navy, 14-7, before Idaho Stuns Stanford, 19-16 PALO ALTO, Sept. 27. (U.R) Idaho s surprising vandals, der their new coach Millard (Dixie) Howell, scored one of the biggest football upsets of the day by knocking over the Stanford Indians, 19-16, before 15,000 in Stanford Stadium to day. It was Idaho's first victory over Stanford since they first met in 1923. Triumph came in the final period on the recovery of a Stan ford fumble on the Cardinal 19 Halfback Bui Williams shot a pass to Sub Quarterback Bill Diehl for the touchdown. Stanford came back with a frantic flurry of passes. 'TD' Called Back Jack Crahan, Stanford end, crossed the goal line on a pass play in the waning moments but the score was nullified by a penalty. The game started out as though it were going to be an other . 4o-0 walkaway for the Cardinals just as last year. Ainslie Bell tossed two quick touchdown passes to Left End Gene Martin to lead, 13-0, at the first-quarter mark. In the second period, W llliams of the Vandals, starting on his own 26, threw four passes alternately to Ed McFaul and Orv Barnes, ending up on the Stanford 10.

(P) An underdog University of Utah team staged a stunning upset over Oregon State College tonight to win, 7 to 6, before 22,175 fans, second largest crowd in Utah's football history. The Beavers, playing listlessly for much of the contest, ran into stubborn opposition on their plays on the ground, and were unable to make a goodly share of their passes click. Utah's winning score came in the third .quarter with Half back Ace Allen going over from 7 yards out on fourth clown aft er a march from the Utah 2& vard line on a series of run ning and passing plays that the Beavers were unable to stop. Guard Bud Gleave kicked the extra point that won the con test.

The Bears, making a gridiron comeback under the coaching of Lynn Waldorf, rushed over a second-period touchdowni on a pass and two smart runs to assume the lead they maintained to the end. They added to the advantage with a 64-yard run to a touchdown in the fourth quarter to apparently clinch the victory in resounding fashion only to have the hard - fighting Midshipmen make it a ball game with a score of their own. Cal Punt Blocked The last four minutes provided thrills. Navy's boys, fighting to the last, blocked a punt, recovering the ball and cracked over the California goal to trail, 14-7. With less than three minutes to go, Navy made a last desperate try. Forced to kick off, they successfully completed an on-side kick. Center Dick Scott fell on the ball and the Middies hit the aerial lanes immediately. One pass fell incomplete. The next one, labeled for a touchdown and with a Navy man in the clear, was intercepted by California. The Navy thrower. had been rushed and couldn't! get the ball out far enough. California froze the ball or four plays, relinquishing it oi downs. Navy regained possei-sion but time ran out on first play. Bears First Rate The Bears charged in powjr-ful fashion, blocked with finesse and ruggedness and looked Ike a top ball club throughout che contest.

Jeff None Too Happy About Trojan Triumph BY FRANK FIXCH "Oh, the life of a football coach t'g an unhappy one." Old sea chanty. For a bloke whose footballers had just given the enemy their lumps, Coach Jeff Cravath of the Trojans was in a mean mood when he wandered into the dressing room after the Washington State fracas yesterday. And he had good reason to be, on several counts. First, his crackerjack halfback, Ted Tannehill, sprained his ankle when he stepped in a hole while returning a punt during pre-game practice. Visitors Play Rough Secondly, Cravath was nettled no end to see the outmanned Cougars push his Trojans around so easily most of the second half. "There are a lot of blue Sat urdays ahead of us, if we don't do better than we did today," he said. Jeff admitted, however, that he hadn't fired his gang up for the Cougars, saving his oratori cal ammunition for more crucial battles. About Tannehill's accident, Jeff blew his topper. Field Unsafe "The Coliseum playing field is a disgrace. If they're going to have, rodeos in there, then we should find another field. The pro teams will feel the same way as I do if they lose a Waterfield or a Dobbs the w?ay I lost Tannehill." Coliseum Manager Bill Nicholas expressed his regrets for the accident. He said that he and his field foreman had gone over the field yesterday morning filling in the holes dug by the Bruins and Hawkeyes the night before. "The Trojans are a good ball club," said popular Phil Sor-boe, coach of the Cougars. "They're potentially a stronger team than the Penn State club which beat us last week. The Trojans don't start off as fast as Bert LaBruchene's Bruins, but I think you'll find them very, very tough before the season's over. I was proud of my boys. We were outpowered, but we weren't outfought We'll be stronger next year the same gang will be back." Hogskin chit-chat: The spies were out In full force.

(JP) Minnesota opened its 1947 foot ball season with a 7-to-6 decision over Washington today, with luck having a large part in a game played in a rain which prevented anything in the way of fancy football. Washington outplayed Minne sota in the second half and kept the outcome in doubt virtually to the final whistle. The Huskies punched over their touchdown in the third period and only a missed kick by Bob Mikalson, sub back, kept them from a tiej Field-Goal Tries Miss Twice in the game's closing minutes it appeared that Washington was about to snatch the lead with a place kick. The first attempt from about the 10-yard line, directly m front of the goal posts, was blocked. The second, from the 16-yard line, was wide. Mikalson's second tfy came w-ith only 34 seconds of play remaining. ' j Fumbles were frequent be cause of the slippery ball and it was a Washington fumble that led to Minnesota's touchdown. The ball popped out of the hands of Freddy Provo, Washington's stellar left half. Bud Grant, Minnesota end, grabbed it in midair and raced 19 yards for the tally. Don Bailey, substitute quarterback, added the point that proved to be the margin of victory. Hn skies Drive Washington's touchdown in the third period came on straight football. Washington took the ball on a kick on the Gopher 37-yard line. Bob Harlow, substitute fullback, raced around right end to the 23 for a first down. He added two more yards. Provo made two and Turn to Page 6, Column 6 up an 11-to-l lead in the first three innings. It was the ninth straight game in which they have tallied in the opening inning, this time collecting three.

Blowing hot and cold, the Trojans opened their 1947 campaign by crunching out a 21-to-0 victory over stubborn Washington State before 48,-173 fans in the Pacific Coast Conference lid lifter at the Coliseum. Game but outclassed, the Cougars weren't much of an offen sive threat They never quit battling, however, arid their fighting spirit no doubt had considerable to do with making Troy's '47 debut less impressive than rabid S.C. fans had ex pected. Considering everything, the result wasn't too surprising and there were numerous times when Jeff Cravath's big boys revealed latent power which only needs proper harnessing to produce more, telling effect. S.C. scored within five minutes after the game began, added another in the second heat and closed with a thrilling 55-yard pass and run touchdown in the last 30 seconds of play. Cougars in Slow Start Washington State made but one first down in the opening half, getting only to Troy's 35. Perked up a bit by Phil Sor-boe's intermission message, the Cougars did better in the second half. They made one real threat in the fourth heat, but it stalled on S.C.'s 17 when alert pass defense nullified some smart pitching by Gordy Brunswick. Hawaiian Johnny Naumu climaxed a 33:yard drive soon after the game began by sprinting around right end from the 17-yard stripe. Fred McCall, Jim Jensen and John Rossetto gave Naumu some nifty dowriheld blocking. Bandleader's Stint Tiny Tommy Walker, Troy's new kicking toe, added the odd digit just as he did after each ensuing touchdown. This is Walker's only gridiron stint although he keeps busy leading the band both before, after and in between halves of the game. Just when a lot of folks thought Cravath's lads were about to run the. Cougars out of the Coliseum, S.C.'s attack sputtered and' stalled until Jim Powers, sophomore from Beverly Hills, relieved George Murphy at quarterback. Powers made the Trojans get up and go in the second quarter. Mixing passes with an assortment of running plays, Jim took 'em from the 27 to the Cougar 35, but at this point a penalty stalled em again momentarily. Memories of '44 The Cougars couldn't gain so Powers was back again in a minute, this time on W.S.C.'s 44. He pitched a nifty to Gordy Gray on the right flank and the fleet halfback brought back memories of his '44 form by racing all the way to the 17. Verl Lillywhite zipped through tackle for nine.

(&) The Louisiana State Tigers blasted through for two fourth-quarter touchdowns here tonight to win a. convincing 21-to-14 victory over the Rice Owls before 48,000 fans. The two teams battled on even terms until the Tigers launched their final scoring drive, good for 91 yards., Y. A. Tittle opened it with 12 yards on a smash at the middle and threw a 19-yard pass to End Ray Bullock for the vital score. He also added all three L.S.U. points from placement. Zollie Toth, sub L.S.U. full back, had counted the tying touchdown a few minutes earlier on a blast through his right tackle for five yards. This march, good for 33 yards, evened the count after the Owls had dominated play in the third period, and had scored on two well-executed pass plays, both from Rote to End Billy Taylor. The Owls opened the scoring late in the first period on a 53- yard drive. Carl Russ and George Walmsley were the principal gainers, with Ike Eiken-berg driving over for the final yard. J.
