Olson. iCarae called end of sixth, rain) By SKIPPER PATRICK KANSAS CITY WV-La Salle University's Explorers, featuring All America Tom Gola, and Brad ley University's big, battling Braves, will meet for the National Collegiate Basketball championship tonight. La Salle, making its first appearance in the NCAA-sponsored tournament, burned little energy in beating badly - outclased Penn State 69-54 in the semifinals last night. The rugged, hustling Bradley team' came from behind in the last minute to beat the Southern California Trojans 74-72 and gain their second spot in the NCAA finals. City College of New York whipped the Braves 71-68 in the 1950 finals. Penn State and Southern Cal will play for consolation honors at 8:45 (EST). Bradley and La Salle begin . their -nationally tele vised (NBC) game at 11:10. . Trailing 29-40 late in the second quarter, Bradley's power paid off in the closing minutes as swift Bob Carney scored on a lay-in to put the Braves ahead 71-70 to stay. Southern Cal, with Roy Irvin winning individual scoring honors with 23 points, was ahead 42-36 at the Half and 58-51 after three periods, but couldn't stand off the rallying Braves. Big Dick Estergard threw in 21 points for Coach Fordy Anderson's Bradley team, wnich was barred from NCAA competition last year because of rules violations. La Salle's performance last night left the experts in a state of confusion. Fans ihere were about 10,000 of thempoured out in droves during the second half . as it became evident Penn State couldn't make a contest of it. Penn State the team that upset Louisiana State and .Notre Dame in the Iowa City regionals did nothing right. The Lions hit only 25 per cent of their field shots, made numerous wild passes and defended poorly. Gola, who got his first field goal just before the end of the first haf, showed an All America "touch", but never had to turn on the steam. He wound up with 19 points, 9 of them on free throws. Explorer Frank Blatcher also got 19. Penn State's Jesse Arnello, voted the most valuable player at Iowa City, canned. 18 points, but never once tried his hook shot, usually his best scoring weapon. rsGrD inrDi itd 1 run M m m m it JI UU LI AT ST.

Ex-Giant Infielder Toils Seven Frames Against Cardinals Bums Trim Yanks For 10th Straight By BEN OLAN Associated Press Sportswriter A youngster who couldn't make the major league grade as a first baseman for the New York Giants today appeared to- have made it as a regular starting pitcher for the Chicago White Sox. He's Jack Harshman, a 6 foot 2 inch, 1S5 pound southpaw from San Diego, Calif. A Navy veteran, he now figures prominently in the plans of Manager Paul Richards particularly after yesterday's performance against the St. Louis Cardinals. The 26-Yoar-old lefthander went seven innings against the Rcdbirds the first of Richards' hurlcrs to go that far this spring as the Chi- sox pounded out tn 82 victory. Harshman gave up both runs, but he allowed only six hits, walked one and fanned four. It was a real smooth job and everyone, except the Cardinals who committed five errors, was pleased over Harshman's showing. "All the time the Giants owned imp. it was touch and an whrthpr BRADENTON.

Middleweight champion Bobo Olson defends his crown against welterweight king Kid Gavilan in Chicago, April 2. If the Kid wins, then Bobo will' get a return bout. Bv JOE REICHLF.R TAMPA, Fla. (.?) Despite an air of optimism by pilot Paul Richards, the Chicago White Sox do not appear to have added sufficient strength to make up the 11 1-2 games that separated them from the champion New York Yankees at the end of last year's pennant race. When the 1053 season ended, the Sox needed a third baseman, a hard hitting outfielder and another starting pitcher. With the new season less than a month off, they are still shy these three important ingredients. Of course, this may change should Cass Michaels take command at the hot corner, Willcrd Marshall or Bill Wilson suddenly start flexing their muscles at the plate and Richards unveil a find among his crop of rookie hurlcrs. That's a lot to ask of Richards hut the lean and taciturn Texan has done a miraculous job in his three years at the Chicago helm and he may do it again. "If wo can come up with a real good pitcher out of the batch of newcomers we have in camp." he said, "it isnt inconceivable that we can get enough pitching to offset the Yankees' edge in power. To be specific, should Jack Harshman, one of the Johnson boys (Don and Connie) or Vito Valentinctti come through with a big year on the mound, I think we can battle the Yankees right down to the wire for the championship." Unlike the grand stand managers, Richards isn't overly concerned about third base. At least not publicly. From the start he insisted Cass Michaels would plug the spot, but of late he has been showing signs of weakness on Michaels, a purchase from Philadelphia. Richards has given every indication that he will switch Minnie Mi-noso. his best all-around player by far, from left field to third base. Minoso has played third base before. Infield There is almost no doubt now that the infield will consist of holdovers Ferris Fain at first base, Nellie Fox at second, Chi-co Carrasquel at short and Minoso at third. Sherman Lollar again will do the brunt of the catching assisted by Red Wilson and Carl Sawatski. Without Minoso the outfield doesn't look too formidable offensively but Richards is optimistic. Still listing Minoso as an outfielder, the White Sox skipper insists he has no problems there. "One of my most pleasant difficult tasks I've had so far has been to decide who will play the outfield," he said. "Minoso is a fixture in left field, if he doesn't have to be moved to third. Johnny Groth probably will open in center. If Groth isn't ready, it will be Jim Rivera in center and either Marshall or Bob Boyd in right. Wilson, as good a defensive outfielder as wc have on the club can win a regular job if he can hit with any degree of consistency. He hits a long ball but he takes too many strikes." Groth, who underwent an appendectomy two weeks ago, is expected to be ready opening day. Rivera and Marshall have been impressive this spring but Boyd has been making it difficult for Richards to count him out of the picture. He has been the best hitter on the club in exhibition games. A lefthand-ed batter, he has been especially murderous, against right-handed pitching. Like last year, Chicago will not break down any fences with its hitting but it should be strong on defense and on the mound. The staff again will be headed by righthander Virgil Trucks (20-10) and southpaw-Billy Pierce (18-12). The Sox will have the advantage of starting the season with Trucks, who did not join them last year until June. Righthander Bob Kcegan (7-5), who Richards called the best pitcher in the American League last September: Sandy C'onsurgra (7-5) and southpaw Harshman (23-7 at Nashville) arc Richards' choices to make up the Big Five. Harshman won 42 games since last April, 27 for Nashville, including four in the playoffs, and 15 for San Juan in the Winter League. Mike Fornicles (8-7) will be used as a spot pitcher. Among the newcomers, Richards believes those with the best chance to stick, besides Harshman, are Don Johnson, who led the International League in earned runs last year; Connie Johnson, a 6-6 pitcher at Charleston; Vito Valentinctti. a service dischargee, and Jocko Thompson, a 34-year-old lefthander who had a 10-4 record with Baltimore last year. Harry Dorish, of course, again will serve as the No. 1 relief pitcher. He will be assisted by Luis Aloma. f SAM ADAMS Starr-Elmore Duel Forecast Subs To Be Spotlighted In Alabama's A-Day Tilt TUSCALOOSA. Ala. (. The stars may take the spotlight, but coaches' eyes will be on the substitutes in the annual Alabama A-Day spring football game today. The intra-squad battle is expected to throw some light on how much depth the tide will have in gridiron warfare this fall. Many of the regulars from the 1953 team 'that won the Southeastern Conference football crown and "was beaten by Rice in the Cotton Bowl are back again. But with only 14 seniors and 10 juniors on the fall roster, Coach Red Drew quickly points out that the 43 sophomores rounding out the squad must supply a lot of reserve strength. Drew has his starting backfield back with the exception of fullback Bill Stone replacing Tommy Lewis, who completed his Crimson football service. Graduation hit the line most heavily, and second year men and former red shirts will be battling for recognition as fall starters in white and red forewalls this afternoon. Quarterback Bart Starr, No. 2 SEC passer last season, will direct the Reds and Albert Elmore will skipper the Whites. 'Elmore, a keep - play running specialist, divided duties with Starr last year. Starting Red backs with Starr include left half Cecil (Hooty) Ingram, right half Corky Tharp, and sophomore fullback Jerry Chiapparelli. Running with Elmore behind the White line arc left half Bobby Luna, Stone, and right half Bill Hollis, the laterk non-lettcrman junior. The more seasoned White line has" end Tommy Tillman and Paul Donaldson, tackles Sid Youngleman and Ed Culpepper, guards Harry Lee and Jeff Moor-er, and former Red Shirt Knute Rockne Christian at center. Red line regulars arc end Joe Cummings, a favorite target of Starr's passes, tackle George Mason and guard Chailes Ecker-ly. Other Red starters are center Bill Brooks, also Red-shirted in 1953; end Paul Pritchett, tackle Fred Singleton and guard Bo Cell ins. Sington and Collins are sophomores. The kickoff in Denny Stadium was scheduled for 3 p.m. The game originally was slated last weekend, but was postponed because of heavy morning rains. Michigan State Eyes Anderson As Coach EAST LANSING, Mich. (UP) Forrest Anderson, basketball coach at Bradley University, may soon become head basketball coach at Michigan State College, according to an informed source at East Lansing. A formal announcement was ex pected shortly because spring basketball drills get underway next month. If he accepts the Michigan State post, Anderson would succeed Pete Newell, who resigned to become head basketball coach at the Uni versity of California. Birmingham To Clarify Relaxed Segregation Law Governing Sports BIRMINGHAM (P) City Commissioner Robert E. Lindbergh says a recent relaxation of Birmingham's rigid racial segregation laws will be clarified. The commissioner said yesterday the laws will be changed further so that it clearly states that the only mixed play permitted here will be in professional sports. The city commissioner recently revised laws relating to segregation so the players of both races could compete together in some sports. Any changes in Birmingham's old segregation laws are opposed by a group headed by Attv. Hugh Locke. The lawyer claims 10,000 signatures have been obtained for a petition to force a vote on the issue. Only 5,000 names of qualified voters -are needed to require a ballot. The petition is being checked by the board of registrars. Mayor James W. Morgan said he didn't see any harm in allowing- Negroes and whites to play professional baseball together. "After all, they're paid for playing," he declared. "I have talked to mayors of i other cities in the South where Negroes and whites plav baseball together," Morgan said. "They tell me that not once has any thing happened." "I'm sure that is the way it will be here. SPORTIVELY -SPEAKING By SAM ADAMS (HARGES that Negro fans were not given a fair shake on "tickets when the famed Harlem Globertrotters played here recently were ridiculous. People who make such grave charges should delve into the facts -before making public utterances. As chairman of a Chamber of Commerce sub-committee on basketball at the Coliseum during the past season, the writer is in a position to speak with authority on the Globetrotter ticket setup. Don't misunderstand, the Chamber of Commerce did not sponsor the attraction; it merely pledged its support just as it did on the Georgia Tech-Auburn. Alabama-Holy Cross and Auburn-Kentucky games. The Globetrotters are sponsored by Abe Saperstein, Chicago promoter. He rented the Coliseum, paid all other expense and took all the gate receipts. Consequently, not one individual in Montgomery shared in the proceeds. The Globetrotters were booked by the management of the Coliseum last summer and the Chamber of Commerce immediately made plans to boost the attraction. The Basketball Committee held a meeting and decided, among other things, that half the seats in the Coliseum should be made available to Negro fans when the Globetrotters came to town. Everyone concerned agreed to the plan and all seats on the North side of the big arena were set aside for Negro spectators. Tickets were placed on sale several weeks in advance of the Globetrotters' appearance. But, even so, the bulk of the tickets allocated to Negro fans were still unsold on the morning of the game. Globetrotter officials then placed all remaining tickets on sale on a first-come, first-served basis. The same decision would have been made if the unsold seal had been in the section reserved for white fans. It was strictly a business proposition at that late hour. The Globetrotters couldn't be expected to run the risk of having a flock of tickets left on their hands by continuing the reserved section plan. After all, the Globetrotters have a daily expense of $4,500. Tickets Sold At Convenient Entrances WHEN the downtown ticket office closed on the afternoon of the game, all unsold tickets were carried to the Coliseum. These included half of section P and Q in the Negro section, and thev were sold at the main entrance. Other tickets, in the Negro section were sold at entrances convenient to the sections involved. White fans also had to get tickets at windows other than the main entrance. ,, , i One other point: the Globetrotters set up their own ticket prices. The lower priced tickets were in the end zone and many of the Negro fans who bought reserved seats in advance selected those in the lower bracket. This explains why the west end zone was filled by Negro fans. And, contrary to statements made elsewhere, they enjoyed the show just as much as the white fans in the south end zone. So, again we sav, Negro fans were given an opportunity to enjoy as many choice seats as the white spectators at the Globetrotter attraction. Some took advantage of the opportunity, others didn't. But those who failed to get their tickets in advance shouldn't talk about discrimination. Gathered Here And There . Some interesting figures are contained in a story concerning the sporting goods industry, in the current issue of Life Magazine This year sporting goods factories will produce 94 million pieces of fishing tackle. 36 million golf balls, five million baseball bats, one and a half million football, baseball and basketball suits, the Life article says. . Speaking of tough football schedules, have you noticed Florida's 10-game slate? The Gators will play Rice, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Clcmson, Kentucky, LSU, Miss. State, Georgia, Tennessee and Miami. 't J More about football: Georgia and Texas have signed an agreement for a two-game series, starting Sept. 21, 1957. Sports Roundup By GAYLE TALBOT TAMPA UP) This listening post at the . crossroads of the training camps hears from awed travelers to the east Florida coast that there's no reason, other than financial, to run off the National League race at all, that the Brooklyn Dodgers again are "long gone" and that, there's 'nothing Milwaukee or any other club can do about it. They say the league champions have everything they had before. and then some, including a terrific young man named Don Hoak from Montreal who might use his bat to chase someone out of the. Dodgers infield before the season ends. They say they never saw so many good looking young players, in their lives. , V A major league manager, asked if he credited a report floating around that Jackie Robinson was disgruntled at not having , been named Charlie. Dressen's succes sor and that the Dodgers were "in trouble," stated succinctly: "I don't know anything about it. but if the team we -saw is having , trouble I'm going to see if I can't stir up a little on mine." From the West, in . person . of ' Jimmy Gallagher, business man ager of the Chicago Cubs, comes ' tidings that this state need not get excited over its prospects of hav; mg ail ine training camps wunin another few years. Down here the civic minded expect Baltimore to pull out of Yuma, . Ariz., next season and the three other teams' in that state to be forced to fol-" low. "In the first place, it's far from certain that Baltimore will leave Yuma," Gallagher said upon fly ing in. "They like it tMere and are drawing bigger crowds than a lot of teams around here. I don't know- about the New York Giants and Cleveland, but our team will stay at Mesa." . ., Not since veteran baseball men can recall has there been so much trade talk in the air this close to the start of the big league races as there is at present. One manager tells us that, unless he is badly mistaken, there will be three or four more deals within the next month. -The name most often heard in current trade rumors is that of Grady Hatton, Cincinnati Reds third-baseman, who spent much of last year on the bench while Bobby Adams played his position. The Chicago White Sox badly, need a third-baseman of Hatton's. caliber, and would go high for' him if it were possible to get hirri waived out of the National League.

So far they have been at it for two davs and have acrecd on only one chance which will be noticeable to the fans. The coaches voted by a narrow marein vesterday to switch back to the old style game of two halves rather than four 10 minute quarters. They hope it will cut down on stalling for the last shot at me end of each period. The national rules committee, headed by Bruce Drake of tb.e Uni versity of Oklahoma, win meet here tomorrow. It will consider chances nronosed not only by the college coaches, out mgn scnoois, the AAU and Canadian representatives. By a vote of almost 2 to a the coaches showed in a pre-convention questionnaire that they would like to replace the controversial one and one" foul rule, which awards a player two chances to make a single free throw during the first 37 minutes of a game. Today they will discuss seven suggestions and decide whetner any are worth passing along to the rules committee. The wide variations indicate agreement on any one of them probably will he difficult. ' The suggestions are: 1. Give an automatic point on a simple foul instead .of shooting the free throw; give a free throw in addition to the automatic point if a player was shooting when fouled. 2. One shot with the ball remaining in play if the shot is missed or being put in play by jumping if the free throw, is made. 3.1 One shot on any foul during the first 37 minutes, two shots during the last 3 minutes. 4. One shot on the first 15 team 5. One shot and the ball out of bounds to the offended team. 6. Two shots on all fouls by the defensive team. 7. One shot with the bonus of a second shot if the first one is good; otherwise the ball remains in play. Kiner Ordered To Rest For Several Days MESA, Ariz. LP Manager Phil Cavaretta of the Chicago Cubs has ordered a few days rest for slugging outfielder Ralph Kiner. , Big Ralph is having heel trouble -both of his heels are bruised, the result of running on hard turf,, say trainers.
