Wednesday Evening, December 18, 1957. Pitching to Balance Off Hitting/ Says Lopez TAMPA, Fla. (UP)— They say pitching wins pennants, and the way the Chicago White Sox pitching staff shapes up now, there's no question that it is the strongest one in the American League. Early Wynn, whom we got from Cleveland, gives us another good, solid starter to go with fellows like Billy Pierce, Dick Donovan, Jim Wilson, Bill Fischer and Bob Keegan. And Ray Moore, whom we obtained from Baltimore, represents the kind of man we were looking for to give our bullpen a big lift. Moore will handle the relief work along _with Gerry Staley, Dixie Howe!!' and Paul LaPalme.

Smith is no slouch at the plate and the .247 average he had at Cleveland last season is certainly not a true indication of his ability. We think that a change of scenery will make a big difference in Ms case. We're counting on Smith as our left fielder. Jim Landis can play center field as well as anyone in the league, and we'll have both Jim Rivera and Francona available in right field. The addition of Goodman from Baltimore frees Bubba Phillips for duty in the outfield, in the event | past season. Yet they banged out eight straight victories and a No. 1 national ranking before the pressured labor of facing fired-up foes week after week took its toll and saw them drop two games by only three points. Wanted: Cool Weather Bryant said the long rest would help, but a chilly snap would be even better because his stars could go longer without relief. The seven mainstays have been All-America halfback John Crow, quarterback Roddy Osborne, full back Richard Gay, end Bobby Dons Spilled By Stanford By UNITED PRESS John Arrillaga tanke" a one- handed push shot from the side court with three seconds to go Tuesday night to give Stanford a stunning upset 50-49 victory over fourth-ranked University of San Francisco. Across the country in Philadelphia, Guy Rodgers, frequently described as "the best backcourt man in college circles," gave a brilliant exhibition of s'.ick ball handling and all-around court wizardry in leading 13'Ji-ranked Temple to a 60-44 victory over Texas A&M. , The 21-year-old Philadelphian hit; for four field goals in the first six minutes as the Owi- spurted to a 12-3 lead and before the game was over he scored a total of 22 points to wind up individual high scorer. West Virginia r-"ambled to a 76-74 victory over Richmond on a lay-up basket by Jerry .Vest with four seconds remaining in overtime. It was the Mountaineers' 26th consecutive Southern Conference triumph and their sixth straight victory of the current season. John McCarthy's 26 points sparked Notre Dame to an 82-63 victory over Loyola of Chicago. DePaul, although minus Chuck Henry and Dick Feiereisel, rolled to a 60-55 upset triumph over Purdue, while Oklahoma came from behind to lick Tulsa, 46-38. Pettit Rings Up 36 Points for Hawks The New York Knickerbockers reached the .500 mark in the National Basketball Association today for the first time since the season got underway. Seven of the eight Knicks who got into the game scored in double figures Tuesday night in a 123-117 victory over the Syracuse Nationals in the windup of a Madison Square Garden doubleheader. The Western Divisbn pace-setting St. Louis Hawks won the opener, 106-99, over the Detroit Pistons. The victory gave the Knicks a 13-13 slate and moved' them to within a half game of the second- place Nationals in the Eastern Division race. Bob Pettit accounted for 36 points as the Hawks rang up their sixth straight win to widen their lead in the Western Division to six games over Cincinnati. UPSET RING VICTORY NEW YORK (UP)—Danny Bus so, 19-year-old Brooklyn welterweight followed the old ring axiom: "Find a target you can hit, and keep hitting it," as he won an upset majority decision over Tony'DeCola Monday night. UNDER COURT ORDER LOS ANGELES (UP)—Pro tennis champion Pancho Gonzales of Los Angeles today was under a court order to live up to his contract with tennis promoter Jack Kramer without an increase in pay. Rote, Tittle Top Passers Who Can Run By UNITED PRESS Y. A. Tittle and Tobin Rote arei two National Football League quarterbacks who can run for the'r lives or just for the fun of it. They're prime examples of the "new school" of NFL quarterbacks and should put on a fine show for San Francisco fans and the nation's TV viewers in Sunday's Western Division playoff game. Pro quarterbacks used to say they never got their uniforms dirty, but they have been living dangerously in recent yeajs. Belter defenses against passes, including crashing L i n e b a c k- ers who often greet the quarter, back almost as soon as he takes I the ball from the center, have forced NFL teams to look for sig-. nal-callers who are agile enough i to run when their receivers are covered. They also have to be rugged enough to stay in one piece when hit by big defensive huskies. Tittle, 195-pound Forty-N i n e r veteran, and Rote, 215-pound Lion star, meet these requirements. "Our kids have the spirit to win another," said coach Frankie Albert, predicting his Forty-Nincrs will capture a .berth opposite the Cleveland Browns in the Dec. 2!) league championship game. The Forty-Niners are three-point favorites. Coach George Wilson of the Lions refused to predict victory against a team that scored five of its eight victories this year by fou.- points or less. In regular season games this year, the Forty-Niners scored a 35-31 victory over the Lions at San Francisco on Title's 41-yard pass to H. C. Owens with 11 seconds to play. The Lions won the return game at Detroit, 31-10. This week's selections: Forty- Niners (8-4) over Lions (8-4), Cardinals (3-8) over Steelers (5-6).

The Board of Directors of the neighboring city voted 6-1 late Tuesday day to authorize their city manager to enter into negotiations with the Dodgers on possible use of the stadium.

Phillips is a • very handy man to have around , because he can play both third. They are the "hard-nosed" type base and the outfield. ; who thrive on contact — the more We're thinking of Goodman in terms of third base. Frankly, I'm not the least bit concerned about our situation around escond base. We have the best second baseman in the league in Nellie Fox and Luis Aparicio at shortstop gives our club as good a double play combination as you'll find. Aparicio Hits and Steals Aparicio's value doesn't end on defense alone. He's a whiz on the base paths (he led the league with 28 stolen bases) and he proved to a lot of people that he's a pretty fair country hitter, too. I think we're in mighty good shape at first base also. Earl Torgeson did a great job for us last season hitting .286 and driving in Si runs. All of us in the White Sox family are v«ry high on Ron Jackson. He has much more experience now than he had when he first broke in and he could really es- of it the better, go all-out at all times and have the savvy to come up with the key, clutch plays on both offense and defense that kept the Aggies winning the close ones. "We're working almost 75 per cent of the time on our defense these days," Bryant said, "and will continue until we quit for the holidays Saturday. We'll brush up on our offense again in the two workouts after we get to Jacksonville the day after Christmas." That offense is geared around Cros, a 210-pound steamroller when he hits between the' tackles and a hefty gazelle when Osborne calls for him to go outside. Use Spm-T Basically, the Aggies use the split-T, but they unbalance the line to either side and use floaters and flankers frequently. They don't pass often but Osborne is the type who hits in the clutch and is a great hand at turn- tablish himself next year.

Like Jackson, Battey could come very fast next year. He has all the tools. I'll say one thing. The White Sox look a lot stronger than they did a year ago, and don't forget, we didn't miss winning by too much last season.
