(Pharos-Tribune Photo-Engraving.) ;a Indians Front row, and Student Spahn Is Only 20-game Mjfjjjner NEW YOli^'(UP) — Warrca Spahn was the grand "old mas- tor" of National League pitchers this year but the circuit's real strength lies in its young stars"— aged 18 to 28. The release o foffieial .statistics by the Elias Baseball Bureau showed that the 36-year-old Spahn's 21 victories for the Milwaukee Braves made him the league's only 20-game ••/inner. It marked the eighth time Spahn entered the 20-win circle — extending his own league record for a left-hander. At the same time, the figures actually were dominated by l younger pitchers. I Johnny P o d r e s, 25-year-ola Brooklyn Dodger !eft-hander, was tops in, the earned run .average with 2.66 and also led with six shutouts. Spahn and 21-year-old Don Drysdale of the Dodgers tied : for second at 2.69 in the ERA department.

Kansas State Height Too Much for Purdue Unbeatens Under 40-Mark Most surprising results; in last week's area gymnasium unfolded at Akron. It wasn't necessarily the fact that unbeaten Akron turned back unbeaten Kewanna. But it was the' 39 lo 38 score that amazed the average fan ... Apparently, Ihe Flyers of Coach Ted Dunn were content to play cozy when getting the ball past Kewanna's full court press The slowed-down temps then permitted the respective defenses to take command of the tense ball game . . . These two talented Fulton county rivals may figure on meeting again for county tourney honors. Rochester's junior guard, Ed Fansler, staged as spectacular shooting show as fans hav« witnessed in Whitmcr gym Friday. He contributed 24 points in the Zebras' impressive 73-53 rout of Wabash with 12 field go:»ls. Fansler needed only 15 attempts to net those 12 baskets . . . Harold Howard celebrated his return to the Zebra lineup by canning 23 tallies. Officiating left something: to be desired in Purdue's 79-73 loss to Kansas Slate, according ta y Gordon Graham, Lafayette scribe. He opined "Kansas State and. Purdue had lo be mighty good basketball teams here to make any kind of a game out of a scheduled Big Eight- Big Ten attraction, which was almost turned into a farce by comical officiating." Incidentally, there ar>e some local observers who disagree with the above. . CHICAGO (UP) — Northwestern and Wisconsin added a pair of victories to the Big Ten basketball record over non-league rivals Monday night but Purdue became the second conference team lo fall victim to Kansas .State.
