4D --Julv27,1975* Sundav Gazette-Mail "*** ' ' \ S f . * Steelers 17-Point Favorites To Defeat All-Stars Friday CHICAGO (AP) - The AllStar football game, sidelined last year because of the National Football League players' strike, makes a comeback amid pomp and pageantry Friday night in Soldier Field. A squad of 55 collegians, including 21 players who were first round picks in the NFL draft, will challenge the champion Pittsburgh Steelers, 1^6 victors over the Minnesota Vikings in the Super Bowl last January. John McKay of Southern California, who two years ago was criticized for his "country club" camp, again will direct the collegians. And once again McKay has run a light camp, with only one-a-day workouts and limited physical contact. In recent years the All-Stars held controled scrimmages against the Chicago Bears, but McKay even ruled that out this year. The All-Stars are 17-point underdogs against the Steelers in the game which will begin at 9:30 p.m., EDT, and will be televised nationally by ABC. Randy White, a defensive lineman from Maryland who was drafted No. 1 by the Dallas Cowboys, "has impressed the coaching staff/' said McKay. "The line- backing corps has done well. The secondary had its problems but started coming along. The quarterbacks and receivers have done well." Steve Bartkowski of California and Steve Joachim of Temple are the quarterbacks with Bartkowski, Atlanta's No. 1 pick and the first player chosen in the draft, probably getting the starting assignment. Larry Burton of Purdue, Emmett Edwards of Kansas and Pete Demmerle of Notre Dame are among the wide receivers. "You can't win without a running game," said McKay, who has some of the nation's premier runners in Walter Payton of Jackson State. Louis Carter of Maryland, Don Kardeman of Texas AI. Stan Winfrey of Arkansas State and Harold Henson of Ohio State. McKay has stressed defense in his camp, "the thing about this game is that if you play good defense, slow the other team down, you have a change to win. But you can't do "that if you don't play good defense." SPECIAL NOTICE! Operator's Revoked? Auto Insurance Cancelled? Safe Driver Call 342-7156 WILBUR L. CARTE AGENCY 207 Tennessee Ave., Charleston, W. Vo. 25302 -AP Wlrephoto Casey Stengel Clowns With Pretty Girls at Old Timers Game Amazing and Funny Man Turns 85 This Wednesday NONSTOP Stengel Turns 85 Wednesday, Still Can Spin Funny Stories By Jack Stevenson GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) - "Baseball? Baseball? Oh, no, I wouldn't go into baseball again. "I would, ah, oh, what do you call it. What's this here stuff when you get to the moon? I'd be an astronaut. I love the moon." Who else but Charles Dillon Stengel, baseball's magnificent and nonstop Casey? Stengel, who won fame as a player and manager, celebrates his 85th birthday on Wednesday. He remains one of America's most recognized sports personalities and one of the most amazing and funny people his sport has ever seen. He's a millionaire, vice-president of a bank, and a member of baseball's Hall of Fame. But the years are beginning to tell on the man who once asked his New York Mets, "Does anyone here know how to play this game?" Casey's wife, Edna, is in a hospital because of a stroke and he isn't in the best of health. "I go there to visit her," Casey said of his wife. "Everybody wants pictures of her and myself like we used to do. Now we can't do it. It would look lousy to send out a Christmas card and not have her picture on it." So Casey lives at their Glendale home, still able to reminisce over more than a halfcentury in baseball. DiMaggio Perfect Player "Joe DiMaggio was the perfect ball player," he said. "When you're managing the first thing you have to do is watch the centerfielder, the right fielder and the left fielder and see how they place themselves. "When DiMaggio played centerfield for me he played terrific and if he went to shift from centerfield to right center they would shift too. "You never had to yell over there with DiMaggio because his judgment was great and he kept the same distance with his three ball players. When he moved, they did too, get it?"' Stengel gained fame for his manner of nonstop, crazy talk, a style all its own which has become known as Stengelese. · He played when big salaries weren't yet in vogue, but he made enough to make successful investments. He didn't want the big money anyway. "I was glad I wasn't in on them big salaries," he said. "For one reason. You know why? They used to pay off in silver and gold. How in hell could I carry all that gold around? And that silver, if I had $100,000. If I had $100,000 in silver in one pocket and $100.000 in gold in the other, I wouldn't be living now, you know that. "They'd take me on the street and I'd have more bumps than I've got now." Boxing Card At Beckley BECKLEY - Seven Golden Glove champions, including top-rated national welterweight Clinton Jackson, highlight a 13-bout boxing card Saturday, Aug. 2. at the Raleigh County Armory. The card, sponsored by Jet Enterprises, features state champions from West Virginia. Kentucky. Pennsylvania and Tennessee. The main event of the evening is a five- round affair between West Virginia Golden Gloves heavyweight champion Don Carter and Johnny Tate. Carter. 21-3. hails from Oceana and is currently on a H-fight winning streak which includes back-to-back victories over rugged Church Brickey. Other Golden Glove champions on the card include John Carter. Mark Frazie. Randy Graves. Irvin Mines, and Jackson. Tim Gibson of Oceana is also a Golden Gloves tit!i?t. but he won his crown in the novice division. In f e a t u r e bouts Carter will take on Mines while Frazie faces Graves. The Carter-nines bout pits West Virginia's middleweight titlist against his Tennessee counterpart in what promises to be an exciting boot, John Carter of South Charleston will take a 47-7 record into the ring against H-nes. 29-f Stengel hated to see Billy Martin fired as manager of the Texas Rangers. He respected Martin as a second baseman with the Yankees and says when Billy comes West for the Old Timers game at Dodger Stadium, "I'm going to let him manage at least half the game." "I'm very proud of Martin," he said. 'Regardless of what they say about him, he really could put out. He was one of the slickest players we ever had. He could pick up signals and he wouldn't tell you about it for three years. So nobody knew for three years that he was picking up the signals. "So what's the matter with him now about his skill. He's very capable and very ambitious in baseball and one of the best managers in the country."
