By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)—Amid rumors that Satchel Paige will be the starting pitcher and baseball is once again open to midgets, the Chicago White Sox inaugurate their 1959 home season with none other than Bill Veeck on the scene. Veeck, who heads a syndicate which purchased 84 per cent of the club, assured all concerned that Paige will not be the starting pitcher. And, he confided, there'll be no midgets sent to bat as there once was when he owned the St. Louis Browns. "I can't say in advance what we'll do," said Veeck, "but some' Kansan To Iowa State AMES, Iowa (AP) — Glendon Anderson, a 29-year-old Kansan, is the new head basketball coach at Iowa State College. The appointment of Anderson to succeed Bill Strannigan was announced by the school yesterday. Strannigan resigned last week to become head coach at Wyoming. Anderson, a native of Smolan, Kan., has been freshman coach at Iowa Stale for four years. He played college basketball at Colo rado State under Strannigan and was named to the Skyline All Conference team as a junior. He also was an outstanding player in AAU basketball for four years. The length of Anderson's con tract, and his salary, announced. were nol Keeps Ring Record Clean Arcaro Will Ride In Derby NEW YORK (AP) — Eddie Arcaro is sticking by his original decision. He'll bid ,for his sixth Kentucky Derby victory May with First Landing. The veteran jockey made that plain today after the 2-year old champ of 1958 had jumped back into the derby picture with a sizzling six-furlong, performance at Jamaica Monday. .I'll ride First Landing in the Wood Memorial Saturday and that means I'll also be up on him in the Derby," said the 43-year-old jockey who has won more Kentucky Derbies than any, qither rider. Arcaro could have selected the Elkcam Stable's Atoll, with whom ic won the Swift Stakes and last Saturday's Gotham with a three- quarter length decision over high- y regarded Intentionally. But after sending First Landing over three-quarters of a mile in 1:10 1-5 for a three-length triumph and then working him out an ex- :ra eight of a mile for a seven furlong time of 1:23 4-5, Eddie lost no time announcing his decision. Whether Arcaro made a wise choice will be partially answered Saturday when First Landing hooks up with Atoll and Intention ally in the mile and one-eighth o the $75,000-added Wood. thing will be popping and there may be a surprise or two." The Associated Press, however,! learned that one of Vceck's stunts will include fireworks and the first display will take place when the crowd is singing the Star Spangled Banner and reaches the bars "and the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air." At this point, in a lot behind the bleachers, Veeck's cohorts will touch off an explosion of fireworks. Another Vccck stunt will take ,place in the seventh inning when the Sox came to bat. Free beer will be passed out in the stands to toast the White Sox. Behind all this hulabaloo will be, of all things, the baseball team known as the White Sox. Chicago fans aren't too excited even though the Sox are in first place with their 3-0 record. They cautiously view it as the same team which in nearly every one of the past eight years sparked Windy City hopes for a pennant only to fall short. Pennant or not, It promises to be an interesting season for the Sox and the fans, especially with By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer Major league baseball puts a finish to the business of "season openers" today with the National League champion Milwaukee Braves, San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers playing their first games at home.

The White Sox. who matched some fine relief pitching with some surprise power for a three- game sweep at Detroit, expect a crowd of about 23,000 at Comiskey Park for their debut against the A's, who were beaten by Cleveland in their only two starts. The unbeaten Indians come home with hopes of pulling in 40,000 or more while giving Herb Score another test. The betroubled lefty was wild in a brief relief chore at Kansas City.
