The 1952 major league baseball season will be belt remembered as a pitchers' year, something rare in this so called lively-ball era. A glance at the final batting av-+ — erages shows only eight regulars in both leagues hit .300 or better. Although there were only six 20- game winners, i\s contrasted to 13 1951, there were 98 shutouts pitched in the American League and 94 In the National, The regular season came to an end yesterday with the interest centering on individual batting and pitching honors although fourth, fifth and sixth place were decided In the American League. Philadelphia's surprising Athletics nailed down fourth place by trouncing the American League's pennant-winning New York Yankees, 9-4.

The Razorbacks will open their Southwest Conference campaign against defending champion Texas Christian at Ft. Worth Saturday night. If there's a game all season that his boys want to win, Douglas figures, this should be It. On the heels of Arkansas' 17-7 upset by the University of Houston Saturday, Douglas wild he'll resign "If I don't get action from the boys this season." "W« have tire material and we ive given them the instruction they need to win," the half disappointed, half disguited coach said. "But they don't «eem to have the desire.

He's expected to be ready to o against TCU, which was shut tut by UCLA, 14-0, Saturday. After three unsuccessful .tries In he six years It has played football, Houston wanted badly to beat a Southwest Conference team.

Although it in cirks the eighth Unic the Yankees have participated in a fall series in the past dov.en years, nnd the fouith lime for the Dodgers, the 1952 classic will hold special interest, The Yankees, for the second lime in history, will he gunning for their fourth successive world cluimplon- shlp. The Dodgers will be seeking their first triumph after five reversals in fls many attempts. Bums io Be Resltd The National League entry for the first time since 1948 will go lo the post reasonably well rested as compared to their rivals. The Dod gers clinched the flag last Tuesda> while the Yankees had to wai until Friday, two days before the close of the campaign. For three years, the National League survi vors were sorely pressed rlgh down to the wire. Most observers, however, pic! the Yankees to whip the Dodger in five or six games in this best four-of-seven. The second game also to be staged In Brooklyn, wl go on Thursday. Tlie conflict moves to the vast Yankees Stadium for 1 the next three days and back again to Ebbels' Field for the sixth and seventh games, if necessary. The records, of course, substantiate the Yankee backers eloquent-, ly enough. The vaunted Bronx Bonibers move into their 19th series with 14 triumphs, 12 in Ihe last 13, Three of their triumphs have come over the Dodgers, in 1941, '47 and '49. Both clubs have good power, a light defense and a strong bench, The Yankees, however, boast the stronger and better balanced pitching staff. Pitching scarcely can be regarded as the Dodgers' forte this year.
