Ohio (UPI) - Bobby Mitchell, the Cleveland Browns' outstanding halfback, has ben recalled to active duty with the U.S. Army, but Coach Paul Brown was encouraged by word that quarterback Milt Plum did not suffer a fractured right thumb in Sunday's game with the Green Bay Packers. The 20th U.S. Army Corps head quarters at Ft. Haves in Colum bus, Ohio, said Monday that Mitchell, a private first class in the Army Reserve, has been called to active duty, effective Oct. 29, with a reporting date of Nov. 2. He will join the 354th Medical Hospital Unit at Ft. Meade, Md. "This was news to me, I hadn't heard anything about itJ' said Coach Brown. "It's just one of those things. Ever since 'Genei Hickerson broke his leg 'in the first exhibition game against De troit), it's been one thing after another." Plum was injured late in Sunday's loss to the Packer. His thumb was immediately packed in ice and kept that way except for X-rays. The X-rays showed no fracture late Monday. The veteran signal-caller is able to move the thumb, but it will not be known for several days if he will be able to play Sunday against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

In fact, it will be Sain, now the Yankees' pitching coach, who will be handed this major reclamation project next spring when Roberts reports to the world champions training camp at Fort Laud erdale, Fla. Sain, you may remember, was purchased by the Yankees from the old Boston Braves in 1951 after slipping to a 5-13 .record that year.

"That's the way to handle timid counter-punchers like Machen," explains the former world chal lenger, who caused a riot in his bout with Dick Richardson at Porthcawl, Wales, last year and was fined $2,800 and suspended six months. , Despite Brian's boasts and his wild aggressiveness, Machen is favored at 3-1 because of his skill and power as a counter-puncher. Moreover, 29-year-old Machen is ranked third among world contenders. London. 27, is unrated among the top 10 because of his inactivity and because of his "knockout or be knocked out" style. " London, the eccentric excandy-maker of Blackpool, Eng., threw a lot of leather at champion Floyd Patterson in their title fight at Indianapolis, Ind., on May 1, 1959v but he was knocked out in the 11th round.

The sturdy, 35-year-old had been with the Phils since 1948 after signing what was then a fabulous $25,000 bonus contract. Won 234 Games During 14 seasons with the Phillies, Roberts won 234 games and lost 199. He won 20 or more games in six straight seasons (1950-19551, reaching his peak-in 1952 when he posted a 28-7 record. He has pitched 35 shutouts and a pair of one-hitters, and was named toihe National League All-Star squad seven times. The 200-pound six - footer from Springfield, 111., reached a career Iow'-water mark with the futile Phils this year when he pitched only two complete games in 18 starts and finished with a 1-10 record after injuring his right knee in mid-season. Bob Carpenter, owner of the Phillies, admitted he was "sorry to see Robbie go, although it's no surprise to either of "us." I told him if 1 had an oppor tunity to place him with a first place club, I would do so," said the prexy of- the last-place Phils. who finished 46 games back of the NL pennant-winning Cincinnati Reds this year. "He certainly is getting that." "I sincerely believe this will be another Sain case," Carpenter added. Nothing To Lose "We have nothing to lose and everything to gain by this purchase,'' said Yankee General Manager Roy Hamey, Roberts apparently agreed. "I would like to think I'm capable of pitching regularly and Philadelphia didn't appear to be the place to do it," Robbie said. "I just want a chance to work hard and be a part of the Yankee team." The New York Mets also picked up another old NL pitching star Monday when they purchased Billy Loes from the San Francisco Giants for a reported $25,000 on a conditional basis. Loes. 32, was hampered by arm trouble during the past season when he posted a 6-5 record and will be returned to the Giants if he fails to impress Mets' Manager Casey Stengel in spring training. Loes was with the old Brooklyn Dodgers from 1950 through 1955, helping pitch the Dodgers to pennants in 1952. 'and '55. He land the Cleveland Indians pro- went to the Baltimore Orioles early in the 1956 season and remained with them until last year when he was traded to the Giants.

The Phillies also asked waivers on veteran pinch hitter Elmer Valo, promoted 10 farmhands, released three regulars and lost in-fielder Ruben Amaro to the U.S. Army.
