In this case means the Catskill Mountains where so many ball tossers contrl hute to the aid ami comfort of re sort guests by lugging baggage waiting on tables and playing has kctball. . . . "They Just play exhl bitions up in the mountains," moan ed Adolph as he watched Kentucky' footballers belt Villanova. "Mayb green kids can learn a lot, but I isn't good for experienced player: The coaches don't bear down. . . Why, when I started hollering a my boys this fall, they just stood around and looked amazed/' . . . Another of Rupp's moans is that that wooden floor in Kentucky's new field house is laid directly on concrete and the lack of spring in it has produced a record crop of shin splints after a week's practice. "It looks as if we have built the KEEPS TEAMMATES IN STITCHES—Jnck Trebilcook relaxes with embroidery before gnnios.

Pes Wee Reese, manager. Fresco Thompson, general manager,- Walter O'Malley, president. Branch Rickey? "• Running the show at Pittsburgh. They ran off the second chapter yesterday in Ihe serial entitled "What happens to Rickey?" now the answer Is supposed to come tomorrow. One thing came out oi yesterday's second press conference in two days, O'Malley and Mr«. John Smith are going to buy out Rid and lake control oi the Dodgers. The price, reported to be »l,060,000 with *SO,000 ticketed for Wil- liwn Zeckendorf as » "commitment let," meam the Dodgers »re -worth over M.000.000. Rlckey'« share was only 25 per cent. O'Malley. presiding »t i press conference at 'which Thompson Brooklyn farm director, was an interested spectator, shed no light on Rickey's future. Mir St»j With Bum* Rickey still may wind up In Brooklyn as a salaried employee o his old partners. Rickey, O'Malley and the late John Smith each own ed 25 per cent of the Dodgers. The had an agreement to give, the other W " first chance if they wanted to sell. l °' s When Rickey agreed to sell to' Zeckendorf. O'Malley scurried to dig up the cash to buy the stock. He says he and Mrs. Smith will complete the deal "well in advance" of the late January deadline. In the meantime Rickey's eon- tract a* general manager expires Saturday. It has not been renewed. The Board of Directors meet to'- morrow to decide what to do. Although Rickey sayx he has "no offers" the Pittsburgh- thing Is still red hot. First he -wants to know how he stands at Brooklyn. If Rickey gcea, <w seems likely, the Brooks will have only one man —Thompson—who know all the inner workings of the far flung or- ganisation. It is expected Branch Rickey, Jr., will go along with his dad. Branch. Jr.. and Thompson have run the Brooks farm system in recent years. O'Malley Insists he has given no a long shot gamble on the hought to th< matter of a manner for 1951. But if Rickey goes. It Li believed thst Burt Shotton wil go, too. Reese, highly regarded as poEen- ial managerial talent sllhouph stil i first rate shortstop, stands aces il»h with o'Mfllley. He is out front in the early running but Ihe race may continue until the December meeting's in St. Petersburg, Fla. Both O'Malley and Mrs, Smith insisted they had no intention of selling their stock to any' other person. They said no third party would be involved In the deal for Rickey's stock. Of courWj there is a third parly in th* Dodgers. Mrs. James vey, daughter of the late Steve McKeever, owns the other K> per cent- She usually voted Independently ol Rickey-O'Malley-Smith bloc. Zeckendorf is the New York real estate' dealer who arranged to buy Rickey's stock Sept. 23. The deal which never came off, was arranged by John Galbreath, owner of Pittsburgh Pirates. , Jnusual Condition? DALLAS, Oct, 25.
