Independents k' j1 i~' ** May Form Conference ( Notre Dame, Army / Navy Top Prospects NE\V YORK UP) -- A group of Important "independent" colleges may band together to form a new football conference The Associated Press, learned Wednesday. Prospective Army, Navy, members include Notre Dame and Pittsburgh, plus four others. Some now are members of other conferences. The exact lineup has not been settled. This project, under discussion for some time, was brought to light during the National Collegiate A. A. : convention at Cincinnati last month. A n . influential college alhletic leader, who asked that his name be withheld, said Wednesday: "You can. say the conference probably will go through if Army and Navy can be brought into it." · The other four schools mentioned in the first, reports were Penn Stale, Pennsylvania, Duke and North Carolina. Since then Penn has subscribed to the new Ivy League agreement for seven football games a season within that group. Duke and North Carolina are members of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Others listed as possible prospects for membership included Oklahoma and Tulanc, both of which have conference tics. CITY L E A G U E , · Wan 1st 2nd 3rd Hop. Tot.

In an announcement, unprecedented in training history, Boston Manager Lou Boudreau said he would make sure that the hustling Piersall does not work loo hard "because I don't want him to burn himself out down here." Left on his own, the ambitious Piersall would start working out at dawn and keep going until dusk. But Boudreau doesn't want it that H. Somcrs 100; M. Ilalsor 520.

Boudreau indicated t h a t h e ·would continue to regulate Piersall's training sessions: at Sara- sola, Fla., for the outfielder's own benefit; Gavifan Settles for Easy Decision in Olson Tune-Up Bout MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (UP) Flashy Kid Gavilan, who appeared content to settle for the easy decision he scored in his tune-up bout Tuesday night against Johnny Cunningham, summed it up tersely: "I needed the work." Welterweight champion Gavilan signd for the non-title bout at Miami Beach ^Auditorium as a workout for his April 2 title shot at middleweight king Bobo Olson. And he appeared most anxious ; to get in the maximum 10 rounds ;of boxing--toying with his Baltimore, Md., rival through the opening minutes of each round and landing his heaviest blows only when the sessions were drawing to a close. He didn't have to worry much about losing, for Cunningham was outclassed and was unable to make even a very interesting fight. At no time did the one-time ·Baltimore trash collector threaten to spring an upset like he did here last fall when he defeated world lightweight champion Jimmy Carter. Cunningham explained his poor showing by saying that he had a boil under bis right arm, which prevented him from tossing full- power blows with that fist. Johnny said he didn't even tell his managers about the handicap until the sixth round "because I wanted the fight to go on." Gavilan entered the ring at 156'A pounds, the heaviest weight of his ring career. It was his increasing difficulty in paring down to the 147-pound welter limit that prompted Gavilan to shoot for the world title in the next heaviest weight class. Cunningham weighed 152. Milwaukee Makes Life Uncomfortable for Contenders By the Associated Press Their own chances of gaining a playoff spot are nil, but the Milwaukee Hawks are making life uncomfortable for the contending teams in the National Basketball Assn. The Hawks, wbo hold down the cellar slot in the western division, surprised the Syracuse Nationals Tuesday night 70-68. A Nats' victory would have en abled them to close in on the New York Knickerbockers who were trounced by the Minneapolis Lakers 100-82 in the feature of a Madison Square Garden doubleheader. As matters stand, the Knicks still lead the eastern division by three games. In the first game of the Garden twin-bill, played before 16,923 fans, the Rochester Royals downed the Boston Celtics 93-77. Last Sunday, Milwaukee hung a 64-62 defeat on Fort Wayne and dropped the Pistons into third place in the western division. Its victory over Syracuse was gained largely by the efforts of Irv Bemoras and Chuck Share. Be- mpras dropped in a layup with two seconds remaining for the winning ' Stanky Haiis Acquisition of Raschi as Pennant Boost club president Bob Carpenter the end of the week. Dick Wakefield, one-time $52,000 By United Press Manager Eddie Stanky hailed the acquisition of Vic Raschi as filling the St. Louis Cardinals' des- * ··«.»«.*».,m, uu^-iunc ^j^.wuu perate need for pitching Wednes- b o n u s beauty, turned up at the day; while owner August Busch Wnsh '" ol "» =»"·»«·- n,-t^^« said the $100,000 deal gave the Redbirds "more than an outside chance to win the pennant." "I'll be salisfied if Raschi wins from 12 to 16 games," Slanky said. "We are desperate for pitchers with only Gerry Staley.and Harvey Haddix. This was a great deal for us.' Surprise Deal The 35-year-old Raschi was sold to the Cardinals by the world champion New York Yankees in a deal that look the baseball work! by complete surprise. Although Raschi compiled*' a modest 13-6 record last season, he won 120 games and lost only 50 in seven campaigns with the Yankees and was regarded as one of Lheir most dependable money pitchers. Stanky left no doubt that Raschi's combative altitude and ability to win "the big game" were key factors in acquiring him. In World Series competition against the Dodgers, Raschi scored three victories and suffered two defeats--one a 3-2 loss last fall in which Carl Erskine set a single- game record of 14 strikeouts. He beat the Dodgers once in 1949 and twice in 1952. Stanky said Raschi would join Staley (18-9) and Haddix (20-9) to form the core of the Cardinals' staff and lhat the remainder of the starters would be chosen from among Stu Miller, Tom Poholsky, Joe Presko, Ellis Deal, Jim Walsh, Royce Lint and Memo Luna. Withdrawing Hemus Deal Busch said he is withdrawing an offer to trade infielder Solly Hemus .0 the Philadelphia Phillies for Jim Konstanty because of the acquisi- .ion of Raschi. The Cardinals had seen dickering with the Phillies since hard-throwing lefty Wilmer (Vinegar Bend) Mizell was drafted. Konstanly (14-10) and Bob Miller (8-9), meanwhile, came to terms leaving 23-game winner Robin Roberts the only unsigned Philly veteran pitcher. Roberts is scheduled to have a fourth salary conference Washington Senators' Orlando, Fla., training base and will work out at his own expense in an attempt at a comeback. At Vero Beach, Fla., rookie pilot Walt Alston indicated Ciem Labine would be assigned to the bullpen but adopted a go-slow policy toward making major decisions with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Club President Walter 6'Malley removed the possibility of one headache, meanwhile, when he rejected Rex Barney's request to work out with the Dodgers. Around the camps: Hal Rice, Paul Smith and rookie catcher Bill Hall signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates -- infielder Fred Hatfield came to terms with the Detroit Tigers . . . Gus Zernial reported to the Philadelphia Athletics only a few pounds over his 216 playing basket. Share 'most of the earlier sharpshooting w i t h 28 points. George Mikan and ; Vern Mikkelsen each scored 20 points in the Lakers' first win in New York this season. Sweelwater Clifton led the losers wilh 20. WEDNESDAY'S SCHEDULE Rochester at Baltimore.
