This Could Be Year For American League Race By ED WILKS Associated Preii Sporti Writer Is this the year the American League has a pennant race? Could be. Two weeks have passed and the New York Yankees haven't been in first place yet. Fact Is, they're tied for second and trail Cleveland's hatchet- swinging Injuns by three games. What's mere, Bob Turlcy, the Yankees' right-handed ace, has won but once in three decisions, and the world champions' pitching staff has produced just three com plete games (two by Whitey Ford) In nine starts. This is hardly enough to suggest I four years. Chicago's idle White that the AL is going to have a new champ for the first time since 1954, when another band of Indians out-ran the Yankees. But it is enough to have Manager Casey Stengel grumbling to his Yanks that he told 'em so, At (he moment, it looks as though it might be downright tough. The Indians, easily the most Improved c'.ub in the league, made it nine out of 10 by once more thumping Detroit's timid Tigers, 10-4, Thursday. The Yankees, meanwhile, were defeated 8-2 at Washington as the Senators beat Turley for the first time in Sox gained a share of second with New York, while Baltimore took fourth place by turning back Bos ton 8-7. In the National League, three home runs gave Philadelphia a 4-3 victory over place Braves Milwaukee's first the Chicago Cubs smacked fit. Louis 6-1 and Cincinnati defeated Pittsburgh 5-2 in the only games scheduled. Turley, who has won 12 In a row from the Nats since May 30 1955, was handed his second Jos of the season by Bobby Richard son's error in a three-run Wash Paddlefish Snagging Provides Real Sport Pro Football Pension Plan PHILADELPHIA (AP)-The pro Football Players Assn. won a pension plan from the National Football League, .but the price came high to veteran players. Actually, as NFL Commissioner Bert Bell put it, the pension, hospitalization, medical and life insurance plan granted Thursday by league owners "won't cost owners or players a nickel." Boll of course was talking of cold cash. The association, in it sdesire to stick its foot in the fringe benefit door, had to sacrifice most of the present crop of players. Bill Howton, president of the association Intimated this when he commented: "Heck, I doubt that I can play five more years to qualify for a pension. I probably won't become eligible." A check of NFL rosters discloses that some 200 of the league's 400 plus active players probably won't qualify for the retirement benefits. The plan calls for playing tenure of four years plus one game in a fifth year with everybody starting from scratch in 1959. Thus, no player will be eligible for retirement benefits until 1963. The average career of a pro football player has been calculated at 3.7 years. By GEORGE SITTERLEY JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP>- Mlssourians are in the midst of a littlo known, much loved spring sport—snagging. There are two branches of devotees. One branch goes after the Paddlefish or Spoonbill Catfish, n weird looking fish that hasn't changed much since the days of the Brontosaurus and the Masta don. Brown's Into Top Team Bowling Spot Brown's' Hardware slipped Into the top spot of the teams' division of the Ottawa City Bowling tournament last night. Brown's had 3,084 to take the lead from Beets Motor Co., with 2,999. Pepsi-Cola moved into fifth with 2,963. L. Blackstone moved into a tie for second with J. Snider in the singles with 655. Richeson still leads the singles with 667. R. Lewis-H, Doman slipped into fourth place tie with D. Heckman-C. Richeson in the doubles bracket with 1,200. C. Hicks, Henley took over fifth with 1,195. Tho fish has a long flat snout on the upper lip that extends far beyond his chin and he's no nor mal feeder. Instead, he feeds on minute organisms which he sort of scoops up, capturing the nourishment for his ponderous body in his gills. He has the smooth skin of thn Catfish and his flesh is declared even more tasty, but because of his feeding habits he's no game for the average angler. He's got to be snagged, or perhaps the way to say it is, "she's gotta be snagged." It is during the spawning runs, primarily in the Osage River above Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks that the Pad dlefish is sought the most. There's 30 or 40 miles of wind ing Osage there that's considered red hot for snagging. The snugger arms himself with a heavy cano or hickory pole- some characters say a gooc strong pool cue is best—line that will test 100 to 150 pounds, a big treble hook that would be usefu for grappling and up to a pound of sinker. Some of the more fastld ions use surf-casting equipment The hook and sinker are heaved perched on a limb above a clear Dzark stream or, as a man vrho likes to catch his fish where he can see them, clinging to the top of a stepladder he has placed in the shallow water. He, too, uses the treble hook technique as a usual thing. But having caught a couple of baskets full of suckers he turns the chores lo his wife. And she cans the fish, bones and all, in a special brine that Ozarkians have handed down for years. In the brine, the flesh takes on a succulence that even city folks will swear by and the bones are •softened so they give the doctors no business at all. Ington seventh.

The Indians, who won in "54 while setting an AL record with 111 victories, made it five in a row over the Tigers by sweeping the three-game set at Detroit.

If it's a Paddlefish he has himself a time. The fish may weigh 50 pounds or more and tail hooked they'll offer Just about the same stubbornness as a shark.

Welterweights In Title Bout ST. LOUIS (AP)-Don Jordan, a young champion on the way up, pits his speed and skill against Vhrgil (Honeybear) Akins, a veteran slugger who may be past his peak, in a twice-postponed welterweight championship fight tonight. The oddsmakers call the fight even—5 to 6 and take your pick. This might be because half of them saw Akins destroy Vince Martinez for the title a year ago, and the other half watched him badly outclassed by Jordan in Los Angeles Dec. 5. The fight will start at 9 p. m., CST, and will be nationaly televised from Kiel Auditorium. The 31-year-old Akins and his OHS Reserves Lose To Haskell B Team LAWRENCE — The Haskell Indian's "B" team ripped the Ottawa High reserves 85Mi to 46% in a track meet yesterday. Bob Lewis, sophomore, led the Cyclones with 16'A points. Lewis won the 100, 220 and the shot put. He ran a leg on the winning 880- yard relay team.

Main handlers must be haunted by the fact the St. Louis fighter has looked bad in all three of his fights since he blasted Martinez for the crown. Both Jordan and Akins have the added incentive of probably big future paydays. Jordan's manager, Don Nesseth said Jordan likely will meet Art Aragon in Los Angeles if he de feats Akins. Akins could gain a match with ex-champ Carmen if he wins and looks good doing it. Jordan, a 24-year-old part- Apache Indian who was one of 19 children, has come fast. Only a year ago he was regarded as merely a big lightweight. He is anxious to cash in on his crown. The fight was reset after a tornado ripped the St. Louis Arena, then reset again after Jordan's wife became ill. Makes An Offer To Chamberlain PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The owner of the Philadelphia Warriors made an offer yesterday to Wilt Chamberlain, two-time basketball All-American at Kansas. "He said he'd think it over and discuss it with his family" Eddie Gottlieb reported. "He gave no indication of whether he'd accept. We're going to meet again next week." Terms of Gottlieb's offer were not disclosed. Chamberlain quit Kansas a year ago to join the Harlem Globetrotters, reportedly for $45,000. His contract with them expired April 15. Gottlieb obtained the National' Basketball Assn. draft rights on The Stilt while Chamberlain still was in high school in Philadelphia and it was a foregone conclusion Chamberlain would shift to the Warriors after getting some experience with the Globetrotters. It also is expected he will continue to barnstorm with the Trotten when the NBA isn't playing. •attxj *uo 99im»pa Jout UDI/I J8I/JO 'J9UUIU \13D9 fUV a »j if -Ju/tiDq ||f)t uovjfj KENTUCKY BLUE GRASS 79c Per fTC Lb.
