(AP) — Young Paul Dietzel begins his first head coaching job today at Louisiana State, faced with the problem of injecting a losing team with winning! enthusiasm for a murderous football schedule. Dietzel, 30. signed to a three-year contract by LSU yesterday at $13,000 annually, told reporters, "I expect enthusiasm, one of the strongest points In a winning football team." The former assistant to Army Coach Earl Blaik said, "I don't know how the material shapes up I plan to pick the 11 boys who Raschi Does Relief Chore want to play the most for my starting lineup. "Football ought to be fun — and I might add it is no fun losing." Dietzel, recommended highly by Blaik and Biff Jones, former Army athletic director and one- Lime LSU coach, said. "I feel confident of my professional ability My job will be to sell LSU to the hoys we're seeking to recruit." LSU traditionally had first choice of material at most Louisiana high schools, but in the last year or two lost coveted boys to archrival T u 1 a n e and even out-of-state teams.

"I haven't seen a tougher schedule in the United States," he said. saver to us last year. I'm not worried about the team's hitting. We were the best hitting club in the league last year but we finished sixth. I expect Vic Raschi to help the c.ub a great deal. We may alter his schedule a bit this year pitching him once a week. Smith may be just what we need .I'll admit his 5-8 record last year doesn't look like much but it's deceiving. Actually, he saved 19 games for the Reds which he did not receive credit for. I know we gave up a good man in Ray Jablonski for Smitty. Nobody can He did a wonderful job for the Cards. Yet, if all the reports we have had ou young Ken Boyer are true, then Boyer, and not Jablonski, would have been my regular third baseman. Strong Bench We have a strong bench with Joe Frazier and Solly Hemus. Our catching, with Bill Sarni and Del Rice, is good. We think our pennant chances are good, but certainly all the other clu'js in the league are stronger. Automatic Wafer Level Control! Adams Appliance Co. Inc.
