LMW irds Peck Slants IK By Jim McCulley Phoenix, March 28 The Giants were about to clinch the Cactus League title here today after Willie Mays hit a home run with one on in the eighth and Hank Sauer followed with a circuit.

But Bob Nieman slammed a two-run homer off young Mike McCormick in the ninth to win the game for the Orioles, 5-4. Barring a sudden attack of the miseries, the incredible Satchel Paige will pitch the opening game on the night of April 17 for Miami against Toronto. While his team's trainer carved a few bad hurtin' corns from his toes, Nieman's homer was the third of the day off Giant pitchers. Earlier, Baltimore had the Giants down, 3-1. THEY HAD SCORED on Al Pilarcik's homer in the second inning, pitcher.

Skinny Brown's circuit in the sixth inning, and one other run on two more hits in the same frame. The Giants, behind 1-0, tide it 01' Satch parried any talk of his age. Last year in Miami, he told me he was 49. Later that summer he toid newspapermen in Toronto he was 51 and still later, at a Havana press conference he admitted he was 53. Yesterday he told Luther Evans he was "approximately" 55.

ICC Tix Tax Hike Faces Defeat As A's Protest Kansas City, March 28 (U.R). A Kansas City finance committee voted its disapproval today of a proposed 5 admission tax of sports events after president a There is nothing vague about the official league records. They I show Satch had 11 wins, 4 losses and the best ERA in the loop, 1.86. In addition Satch saved 15 games and was such an effective ciuteh-hitter his six hits in 37 at-bats drove in 12 vital runs. Like Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey, who had an excellent memory for faces but a poor one for names, the Satch disdains a "Hi I pal." He identifies teammates by position.

When-he first reported 1 to the Miami camp, catcher Ray Holton, a 1956 teammate, shook: hands and sternly demanded: "Now tell me, what is my name?" in the fifth with Bill Taylor's: double to right and Curtis Bar- clay's single. Barclay started and went six! innings, giving up three runs and; five hits. Brown went six innings I for the Orioles allowing four hits, Irv Palica was the winner.

But an oldtime fan, Henry Spengler of Brooklyn, believes the real reason, and a mighty important one, is the "fold-up philosophy." Spengler has been watching baseball for 53 years.

The city finance committee, to whom the proposal had been referred for study, returned the measure to the city council with the recommendation that it be killed.

REPRESENTATIVES OF the Merchants Association attended an afternoon hearing on the proposal and urged a veto of the measure because the A's bring business to Kansas City. Johnson, in West Palm Beach, had termed the proposal unfair. He said its passage would constitute an act of bad faith on the part of the city. The prospects now are that the City Council will kill the proposal, probably tomorrow. Finsterwald, 66, Paces Azalea Wilmington, N.

SCHOENDIENST MADE his first start since returning to the club and drew a collar in four tries at the plate. Castleman was at third for the second straight day.

He looked good in the field again and delivered a single ahead of Mays' eighth inning homer. The Giants are now 12 and 6 over-all and 11 and 6 in the Cactus League. They need one more victory to clinch the spring title in this area. Nowakof Canisius can beat the perennial winners, so who going to battle it out for second, third and fourth This from the very men who should be instilling pep and fight. "Take Fred Hutchinson.

When asked how his Cardinals looked the other day he replied, 'Musial looks good. There is too much of this give-up complex in recent years. You know what peppery John McGraw would say to managers like these? You just could not print his opinion! I say look no further for the slump in baseball attendance than the defeatism of the managers. Fans stay away because they sayto themselves, 'Why travel and pay to see a game, say, between the Yankees and any of the seven rival clubs if yoa know beforehand most of the managers and most of the players are not out to -win with the old rugged American do-or-die spirit?"

Dow Finsterwald, Ohio-born professional who registers from Jupiter, birdied; three On All-Star Squad of the last four holes today for a six-under par 66 that gave him a three stroke lead after the first round of the $12,500 Azalea Open golf tournament. The 27-year-old Finsterwald, Henry (The Hammer) Nowak, who broke all Canisius scoring records this season, has been named to the college All-Star basketball squad scheduled to meet the Harlem Globetrotters at Madison Square Garden Sunday afternoon.

The 6' 3" star from Buffalo set a new Canisius mark of 564 points with a 20.1 average in 28 games and a career record of 1,449 points. Nowak reported today with the other All-Stars, John Smythe of Notre Dame, Dick Heise of De-Paul, Harv Schmidt of Illinois, John Maglio of North Carolina State, Irwin Blumenreich of Yeshiva, Larry Friend of California and Frank Nimmo of who has been in the money in 46 consecutive tournaments rince the end of 1955, carded a -34-32 round to snatch the lead from E. J. (Dutch) Harrison of St. Louis and Mike Souchak of Grossinger's N.

last year's winner here. Harrison, one of the first to finish, had staged a premature birthday celebration he'll be 47 tomorrow by coming in at the Uarden, McGuire, coach of Worht Carolina unbeaten champions, will send his All-Americas against the world famous Harlem Globetrotters. It is the start of a coast-to-coast tour. Last year it attracted capacity throngs and was won bv the Globetrotters by the narrow margin of 11 games to 10. The Trotters are entertaining clowns, all right, but some fans are unaware of the fact they are competent basketball players to boot.

McGuire will have Ray Meyer of DePaul as co-coach and his squad includes Henry (The Hammer) Nowak, Canisius record-breaking scorer; Notre Dame's captain, John Smyth; Dick Heise, who smashed George Mikan's point records at DePaul; John Maglio, North Carolina State's great playmaker; and Irwin Blumenreich, holder of every offensive standard at Yeshiva. Coach Abe Saperstein will have the inimitable Meadowlark Lemon, a comedian of great talent and also a fine scorer; the dribbling wizard, Leon Hillard, captain Clarence Wilson, most valuable player among the Trotters two years ago and Charlie Hoxie of Niagara who, as a rookie last year, won the MVP balloting with his team. McGuire lias Big Week Piloting Cage Aces. McGuire is having a strenuous week because tomorrow afternoon he has the little matter of piloting the East against the West in their annual clash. McGuire can utilize the services of Grady Wallace of South Carolina, the nation's top major college scorer, and Ken Hammond of West Virginia Tech and little Porky Vieira of Quinnipiac College, the two leaders in small college ranks.

All of these men are sensational scorers, particularly Porky Vieira who has averaged 34.86 points a game, despite his 5 Doc Hays of Southern Methodist, the West coach, will have tremendous backboard strength and probably the better outside shooting. with a 69, on nines of 35-34. liams beat out a bunt down the third base line and Nieman hit over the left-field fence. Rigney was impressed by the pitching of Fernando Rodriguez, who blanked the Orioles in the seventh and eighth, retiring six men in a row. The Giants got one man to base in the ninth.

Schmidt singled with two out. This brought up Lockman who was batting in the pitcher's spot. Whitey ended the contest by flying to left field. THE GIANTS HAVE declared themselves out to win every game they can. Manager Bill Rigney probably could have wrapped up this game by calling on any one of his relief pitchers, but' he has to find out about McCormick and he did.

Having won 12 out of 17 starts, Rigney relaxed this afternoon and did not start his No. 1 lineup, including Mays. After Willie pinch-hit the home run, however, he went to center field. Rigney also rested his shortstop phenom Andre Rodgers. Rodgers feet Souchak, returning to competition after a month's layoff, re versed those figures.

Giardello Go 9 No Decision' Kansas City, March 28 (JP). The Missouri Athletic Commission today declared a "no decision" outcome in the nationally televised fight last night between middle-weights Joey Giardello of Philadelphia and Willie Vaughn of Hollywood. Tthere were howls of protest from The champ "feelin low" manager in the Grapefruit Circuit is said to be Kerby Farrell of the Indians. He has been juggling his lineup desperately but the Indians of 1957 still continue to look alarmingly like the Indians of 1956, all on-the-scene critics agree. Herb Score looked impressive against the Giants if that means anything but all the other hurlers including Garcia, Lemon and Wynn have looked pretty sad.

What hurts is that the secondary pitchers, the young ones expected to strengthen a presumably strong staff, have been disappointing. On top of all this the club has not been hitting and third base has been a terrific headache. Aspirin, anyone? the Philadelphia fighter. Commissioner Pian explained that the two judges were using the newly adopted system of scoring, while the referee was using the old system. Attention of the coiimissioners was called to the scoring mixup by co-promoters Antonello and Frankie Gutto.

'O. G. Arnold, member of the commission, made the announcement after a conference today with Charles W. Pian, St. Louis, and Floyd Jones, Springfield, the chairman.
