The Chicks, In « slow game,* downed the Rector seniors 35-25 in he night's main attractlpn and in :he first game the Papooses whip- led the Rector Juniors 23-19 In :he first game. The Chicks grabbed an early lead n their game and then coasted through the last half with reserves playing most of the Jinal quarter Montroe Holland, the tribe's big six-foot, six-inch pivot man, was the whole scoring show for the >'tailors. He rimmed 24 points to lead both teams In scoring. Friers was high for Rector with nine points. It was the Chicks' first experience against a team that used the slow-moving, ball-control style of play and they found It a little baffling at first. But they soon caught on and were away. The Chicks were strong on de- fense but their offensive game was still a bit rusty. Guard Bubby Jones led the Paps to their victory. He meshed 13 points to pace both teams in the point making department. Gale- yean was high for Rector with 10. Junior Game Blythevllte Cobb (4) .. Shanks ... Hall (5) .. Jones (13) Akers (1) Pos. .

(is'EA) Cards Expected to Get Stanky as Pilot Today By JOE RE1CHI.ER NEW YORK, Dec. 8. (AP)_Eddie Stanky was expected to become the new St. Louis manager following a "yes, or no," huddle today between Cardinal President Fred Salgh and officials ol ths New York Giants. Only an unexpected last minute, flight hurlers, are prepared to ol(er obstacle, or stubborness on the part | several of their promising minor . Then, yesterday, he declared that overlapping seasons "don't give the all-around athlete > fair chance." He was referring especially to Floyd Sagely, the Van Bureau sophomore who reported for basketball practice late— after finishing his duties with the Arkansas football team. So, what happened last night? Th« tro «mallest members of the squad. Sagely, the all-around athlete, and another sophomore guard, Tyron Lewis of Fayetteville, 5-10, were the Razorback sparks. Arkansas, its tremendous height dvantage and nil, was a ragged, uncertain ball club when these boys were on the bench. But, with sages' mid Lewis operating, the Porkers were a wnooth, hot outfit. a three-time all- school, who kept It was Lewis, starter In high the Razorbacks a step ahead In the early moments. He mixed long jump shots with fast-developing ay-ins that he made look easy to wore all U of his points in the - irst half. He didn't commit a per- of one or both of the club execu- ives, will prevent the year's outstanding deal from being made. In exchange for the aggressive second baseman, the Giants were to get pitcher Max Lanier and center fielder Chuck Diering, the players they have been demanding since last Nov. 20—shortly before Marty Marion was released as pilot of the Cardinals. Salgh. who is here to attend the major league meeting opening this morning has been reluctant to part with Lanier. the Cards' 37-year old southpaw who had a 11 and 9 record last season. He had tried, without success, to interest the Giants in right hander George (Hed) Munger. President Horace Stoneham of the Grants, however, has insisted all along that "no Lanier, no deal." "I am sure we can make the deal," said Manager Leo Durocher of the National League champions. "You know what our final re- iwt from the Cardinals was—Lanier and Diering. I think the Cards are still getting the best of the deal. "Think We'll Make It" It was In Columous at the minor league meetings after Durocher and Saigh had huddled for two hours and lunched together for another, that the Giants' manager came out smiling and said: "I think we will make it. I told Salgh it had to be Lanier or nothing and he said he would consider It." Saigh's answer to this was: "We are nearer to an agreement than before." Stanky Ls the highest paid Giant player. He inserted his own figures on a blank contract last year—calling for 130,000. Stoneham not only U willing to raise that figure for next season but has promised Stanky a lifetime Job with the Giants If he wants it. But Stanky wants a crack at managing a big league club. He feels that he Is qualified and ready after nine years of major league baseball with four clubs—Chicago Cubs, Brooklyn Dodgers, Boston Braves and the Giants. Third Since '50 If Stanky gets the job he'll be the third Card manager in three years. Eddie Dyer led the club in 1S50 and Marlon in '51. Unlike Dyer and Marion, S*^nky expects to b« a playing manager. Marion had the same hopes but was sidelined by a knee Injury. In the meantime, the other clubs are marking time hoping to be able to announce player trades over the weekend. Ths Dodgers, anxious to land pitcher Bob Rush of the Cubs or any of Cincinnati's three top league stars. The American League clubs are awaiting Joe DiMaggio's decision on whether he will play for the world champion Yankees again next year before they swing Into any serious business transactions. The Yanks are reported to have the Inside track on Ted Williams of the Hed Sox but probably will not be Interested if DiMaggio decided to return. Meanwhile, the National and American Leagues will meet in sep. arate conclaves today and tomorrow and gather in a Joint session Monday.

It was this experimenting that gave the speedier Rebels the chance to trim the Porker margin to four points, 60-56, with Just over four minutes left to play. Bob Jurvis, an Ole Miss soph, did most of the damage in the Rebels' fine fourth quarter rush and led the game's scorers with 19 points.
