Power Of A " s Picked As Rookie Of Year psw.v.-v;w;-.vvX: s 4 THE SUNDAY NEWS, MARCH 21, 1954 :W: 25 Correlation First In Gulfstream Derby h, Want 2nd Free j Throw Only If1 First Is Made KANSAS CITY, March 20 (INS) The National Associa tion of Basketball Coaches closed its 28th annual meet injr today by recommending a change in the one-and-one foul rule to give a second free throw only if the first one is made. , The ball would be in play im mediately if the first shot is mis sed.lowever, two shots would still be given a player fouled while shooting. The change will be rec ommended to the rules committee which meets tomorrow. Urge 20 - Minute Halves , Also to be passed on will be an earlier suggestion of the coaches to return to 20-minute halves. They point out there is too much stalling near the close of the pres ent four 10-minute periods. Commenting on the new foul rule proposal, Coach Floyd Stahl of Ohio State, chairman of the. rules rec ommendation committee, said: We are trying to take away the .objectionable feature of the pres ent rule which puts a premium on mediocre foul shooting. . The recommendation would give a bonus for good shooting and help do away with fouling for profit. The coaches also want to express their desire for a full 40-minute game instead of what amounts to the Johnny Sain Back With Yankees present two games of 37 and three minutes, each. The proposed rule would apply to the entire 40 minutes of play. It may be used in tonight's consolation game b.etween Penn State and the University of Southern California, if coaches of the two schools agree. . . - Turn Down 12-Foot lane .The coaches voted down a proposal to recommend that the present free-throw lane be widened to 12 feet to keep the big boys away from the basket as has been done by the pros. - They approved a recommendation that the rules be made to read: basketball is a negligible contact sport. This was in line with the advice of Dr. H. C. Carlson. former Pittsburgh coach, who told the convention yesterday: Coaches should get away from the illusion that basketball is a non-contact sport. ,4 - . -V t . v 4 N ' ,v' .

TheOBSERVER Simmons Eager F or Crack At First 20-Victory Year TAMPA, Fla., March 20 (INS) Southpaw Curt Simmons, who came within a toenail of a major tragedy when he ran over his own foot with a lawn mower last June, is looking forward to his first full big league season since he reached front-line form. The husky Philadelphia P h 1 1- By George C. Crudden, Jr. Sports Editor CENTRAL Pennsylvania Hockey Writers, in naming their first, second and third choices for the American League All-Star team, nominated no less than five Hershey players, including Gordie Henry, Dune Fisher, Red Sullivan, Lome Ferguson and player-coach Murray Henderson, while Ray Gariepy would have been an almost certain choice had he been eligible . . , Arnott Whitney, the Freshman, was put in third place for the Rookie of the Year award ... At first glance, this might appear as though the Central Penn group is slightly prejudiced, in other words, homers," but nothing is further from the truth, as the Selection Committee, which picks em for the entire group as a whole to vote upon, consisting of Dave Brandt, of WGAL-TV, Ted Cress, of the Lebanon Daily News and Herb Krone of the New Era and Associated Press, is one of the most conscientious committees we have ever seen at work . . . After the players are select- ed by the Committee the group as a whole kicks it around for a couple of hours, and not infrequently changes are carried ... It just so happens that Hershey is that good this year, and when the final choices are made we believe that the Central Penn selections will hold the line pretty close . . . Sullivan, who, doubtless will be named the player of the year, and Is likely to be an unanimous choice, is said to be worth $50,000 . . . Gariepy, who was up In the National League with the Boston Bruins most of the season did not play enough AHL games to qualify for the all-star array . . . However, it is the considered opinion of several close hockey fans that Gariepy is worth $30,000 of anyone's money or the equivalent in players ...

Sharman, playing the greatest game of his career, sank 26 points to keep Boston in the Eastern Division NBA round-robin playoffs and eliminate New York.

Simmons, who will be 25 on May 19, doesn't consider himself a hard luck guy. But circumstances have kept him from turning in a full campaign since he actually began knocking at the door to stardom in 1950. The native of Egypt, Pa., wrho received a $60,000 bonus for signing, was with the Phils the full seasons of 1948 and 1949, but he had very mediocre records. Then when he got rolling with 17 victories in 50, he was called by the Army and missed the last three weeks of the season as well as the World Series. He reported late in 1952 after his Army discharge, and his lawn mower incident cost him a month last year. Everyone is wondering if he can win 20 games over a full schedule. Curt said: 1 guess Im more anxious than anyone to see what I can do. I feel Im in great shape. I realize we have a defensive club that counts heavily on pitching. I hope I can have my best year. Simmons depends upon overpowering foes and upon hair-splitting control. But he has developed a deceptive curve and a change of pace. He gives much credit to Ken Silvestri, who was his battery-mate in his early days with the Phils. He said: He gave me confidence, made me think more about control and showed me that I faced first base too much when 1 took my stride. I wasnt too much in those days. Curt has overcome tremendous ous shyness. He attended high school with his wife, Dorothy, but Chisox Blank Phils 5 To 0; As Bow 8 To 2 To Pirates FT.

L. Choice BY JOE REICHLER ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 20 (P) Who's going to capture the American and National League Ilookie-of-the-Year awards in 1954? The writer, who picked Detroits Harvey Kuenn and the St. Louis Cardinals Harvey Haddix at this time a year ago, believes Vic Power, Philadelphia Athletics Negro outfielder, will walk off with the American League honor and Jerry Lynch, Pittsburgh Pirates flychaser, will get the Na tionaL League accolade. Kuenn far outdistanced all opposition last year and Haddix fin lshed second to Brooklyns Junior Gilliam. Both Power and Lynch should encounter much more opposition than the 1953 winners since this season promises to produce a rousing rookie scramble. 269 Eager Freshmen By actual count, major league clubs are dotted with 269 eager, ambitious freshmen. Several, like Milwaukee's Henry Aaron, Boston's Harry Agganis, Cleveland Rudy Regalado and St. Louis Wally Moon are not even listed on their clubs roster, Others, such as Detroits Dick Donovan, the New York Yankees Bob Cerv, Cincinnatis Art Fowler and Milwaukee's Gene Conley are up for the second, third and even fourth time. A majority will be returned to the minors but more rookies are expected to stick in 1954 than in any previous single year. Who will be the lucky ones this year? A poll of the 16 big league pilots puts the spotlight on the following rookies who have shown most promise in the first half of spring training: NATIONAL LEAGUE St. Louis Shortstop Alex Grammas, first baseman Tom Alston, outfielders Wally Moon, Tom Burgess and Joe Frazier and catcher Dick Rand. Milwaukee Outfielder Henry Aaron and pitchers Ray Crone, Gene Conley and Ben Johnson, Cincinnati Outfielder Wally Post, catcher Ed Bailey and pitchers Rudy Minarcin, Art Fowler and John (Red) Stewart.
