Monday Evening, December 23, 19!>7. Today's Sport Parade By OSCAR FR.ALEY United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (UP) _ Fraley's Follies and absolutely the final football selections of the year—the bowl game "winners" which will prove, if you bet on 'cm, that it is better to give than to receive. Without further ado, or even any more nonsense, here they are: Rose Bowl — Ohio State over 6regon. Sugar Bowl — Texas over Mis- as a "lady-like left hook" and then stepped out of the ensuing melee as his mates took on the writers. It required somewhere between eight and 18 ball players to get a draw with the two spelling machine guys — proving again that ball players as fighters are good ball players. As a baseball player, Babe Ruth stood without peer. But, alas, as a ring prospect he was a punching bag. Babe had good sense enough not to show up one time when the irate Ed Barrow invitee! sissippi.

NEW YORK (UP)—They came talked himself into a mess on the [ up today with an All - America coast a couple of years back and' football team which makes the nobody has forgotten or forgiven.; rest of them look like child's play. Including Woody. The insinuation was that Western teams didn't make it smell like a Rose Bowl and, to prove it again, Woody is insisting that his muscular marvels kick the atlar out of poor little .Oregon. Ohio State is a 17 point choice—or maybe the word "cherce" now is more acceptable in the Los Angeles area — and it is doubtful if Hayes will settle for less. Oregon lost three games by a total of only 17 points and a good defense may hold down the score for the first three quarters. But watch those Buckeyes run in the final heat after crunching the resistance out of Oregon for the first 45 minutes. Sugar Bow] This is a game which proves that education really has survived in college, even for football players. Texas got off slowly because it is loaded with sophomores. The pore li'l fellers had to learn—and did. Their late surge gave them all A's in first aid. Ole Miss is faster than a blue tick hound surprised by a pair of coons. Seven former backs make the line as mobile as a Sherman tank and there are three 10-second sprinters in the backfield. But I got to go for education in a pick 'em ball game. Cotton Bowl This Navy team hits like a bunch of grogged - up gobs in an This one is, actually. And it has to have 14 members because they couldn't separate the little men from the boys. It's the annual Pop Warner kids' All - America team selected from 100,000 small fry football players across the nation. The team,, announced by Yale coach Jordan' Olivar as head commissioner of the conferences, includes: Ends: Mike Burrows, 12, Reseda, Calif.; Joe Yocca, 13, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Cliff Edwards, 13, Waynesville, N. C. Tackles: Norm White, 13, Mill Valley, Calif, and Bob Handlcy, 13, Middlefield, Conn. Guards: Bill Ryan, 12, Atlanta; Tim • Roettger, 12, Torrance, Calif., and Joe Weglarz, 13, Philadelphia. Center: Jeff Novinger, 13, Knox- vilie, Tenn., and Tony Lizza, 12, Hermosa Beach, Calif. Backs: Charlie Cobb, 12, Daytona Beach, Fla.; L. E. Sawyer, 12, Elizabeth City, N. C.; Alex Theios, 13, San Bernardino, Calif., and John Bolles, 12, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. Cobb — a grandson of the immortal -Ty Cobb of baseball fame —and Sawyer won co-ranking as the All - American boys of the yea/ or; a rating of 97 points out of a possible 100. Don't think it's an honor easily won. Only 30 points are awarded Arch St. salloon. Rice has a di-!f 0 r football play.

There ought to be a law against guys like that Reifsnyder. The opposition could wind up .in the stands and somebody might get campus, with no one eligible for ranking if te has 'less than a B classroom average. Those with straight A's or an honor roll ranking get 40 points. Cobb for All-' Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Three- Fraternity at U. Wisconsin Bids For Sherman Tank MADISON", Wis. (UP)—Brothers ' of Wisconsin's Delta Sigma Pi ; fraternity departed for the holi- : days with, sly smiles. They would: return to face the new year with their very own 33-ton Sherman tank. '. The brothers aren't saying what prompted them to form a nonprofit, non-share corporation to purchase the Army surplus giant, ; but insist they have a reason. ! "We could use it for blind dates," suggested brother Philip ; Goes, Milwaukee. But rival j fraternities, looking for iess faceti-; ous motive in the age of the egg-; head, levelled a bazooka barrage of suspicion at the tank buyers, j Cost of the tank will be "in the | neighborhood of $600," according! to the fraternity. Their bid will! be made Jan. 16 at Camp McCoy, : which started the whole thing by' advertising 49 Shermans for sale about 10 days ago. KILLEEf IN ACCIDENT MUN'DELEIN, 111.

AN ALERT AT A SAC BASE—Although missiles are almost monopolizing the headlines these days in that as of now the best insurance the United States has against another Pearl Harbor is SAC. It is the Strategic Air Command—the Sunday punch ol the U. S. Air Force that is wound up and ready to strike at a moment's notice in the event oi attack. Here at the Little Rock (Ark.) Air Force Base the new alert operation of SAC, recently announced by SAC commander Gen. Thomas S. Power, is demonstrated for the first time to an International News writer-photographer team. A moment after the siren shrieks, bomber crew men (top, left) dash to vehicles for the rush to the flight line where the bombers are waiting and ready to go. One of the B-4,7 jet bombers (bottom, left) starts its takeoff while others await their turn. One of the commanders after picking up his "satchel" from the "vault" runs to the flight line (center, left photo) where preflight checks already have been made and the plane loaded with the "weapon," presumably nuclear. The "satchels" contain maps, charts and other data to enable them to reach their targets. At top, right, a SAC bomber (left) is about to be loaded with jet fuel from tanker plane (right). At bottom, right, you are looking from the cockpit of a B-4.7 jet bomber as the pilot jockeys it for contact with his refueling plane. The Strategic Air Command says that this is the first photo taken by any press media of the refueling from inside the bomber looking out. (Central Press) Trades to Bolster Braves, Says Haney By FRED HANEY The United Press LOS ANGELES <-UP>— Baseball the hitting coupled with that of is an unpredictable game and while I'm still flying high since Milwaukee won the world championship I can't help worrying about some of the bad luck that can strike a team. Last year we had both good and bad luck. It's bad luck when a player like Joe Adcock gets hurt in the middle of the season. And it's good luck when you have a rookie like Bob Hazle come along Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews and some of the others to pull games out of the fire at any stage.

Orange Bowl < Oklahoma loses a ball game, after chalking up 47 in a row, and right away they're a bunch of stiffs. Notre Dame's line played a whale of a game to pull off that miracle and Duke has a forward wall which won't take sass from anybody. But — I'd sooner bet on the Sooners than the Blue Devils, being the angelic type, anyhow. Oklahoma could win it big, yet guess I let my enthusiasm get "Hear us, Father, as we pray f^y^with me whenj spouted off "For they guidance here today; """' """ '—•'-- -— — -•*"May we use our talents well, "For they glory to excel.

NEW YORK (UP)— Whitey Ford the New York Yankee southpaw, is setting a frightfully dangerous precedent today by taking up boxing to strengthen his sore pitching arm. It's axiomatic that ball players can't fight. Also that nobody ever gets hurt — or hardly ever, anyhow _ when the diamond stars decide to make like Floyd Patterson So V/hitey's therapeutic fisticuf- fing could be simply awful. Imagine now if, after hooking and jabbing all winter, he comes back next season and'has a whale of a year. Right away every pitcher in baseball starts box-fighting. So can you imagine what happens? Burdctte a Title Prospect? Every time a pitcher throws a' duster and the batter challenges i him, the hitter is in danger of' being clouted and, much worse, clobbered. The hitters, naturally, •will have to start using their bats in self defense — and you can lose a_ lot of good pitchers that way. Then, too, guys like Lew Burdette might decide to take a shot at the heavyweight title. It's a menace to the whole game, that's what it is. Whitey should know that no good pitcher ever could fight a link Take that there Dizzy Dean now. Dizzy got brash with a hitter in the minors one time and challenged the young ma n to ""o ahead. Hit me." The young man nan been a boxer and, in the next few minutes, Diz was up and down like a yo-yo But, as proof of the point at hand, Dean became a great major league star while the young boxer disappeared even from the minors Dizzy Tahglcs With Scribes Dean got into another hassle in .Florida one spring with a pair of baseball writers named Jack Miil- ey and Irv Kupcinet. Diz threw •ne punch which Miley described Hr was 78 years old. A lifelong resident of Cass coun- !y, he was born Dec. 16, 1879, the son of Samuel and Anna Downham Sailors. _ He was a retired farmer, and a member of the Eagles Lodge and the English Lutheran church. Surviving are his wife, Vennie; a daughter Mrs. Anna Slusser, route's, city; a sister, Mrs. Sarah Dodds, route 2, city; a brother, Quincy, route 2, city; and two grandchildren. that the trades we made at Colorado Springs ought to give us another world championship. I'm still happy we were able to get Bob Rush and Don Kaiser for our pitching staff as well as Ed Haas for the outfield. But now that I'm home I've started worrying. Being a major league manager makes a man worry about things that haven't happened and that shouldn't happen. But sometimes they do happen. We expect to field the nucleus of the same team that won the pennant and World Series in 1957, with the addition of the men we acquired. Right now I don't look forward to any trades. It's not giving away any secret to say we expect to have powerful pitching again this coming > say much about, the outfield when I have guys like j Aaron, Wes Covington, Bill Bruton (if he's okay physically like I think he will be), Hazle, Haas and some of the others. I've got my eye set on the pennant and another World Scries but I also know there are going to be lots of unpredictable bounces between now and then.
