SIXTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker International Newt Service ;; NEW YORK—(INS) — President 'Walter O'Malley of the Brooklyn Dodgers is parlaying generosity and patience in his attempt to lead the club to a pennant. Last year, his first at the helm as successor to departed Branch Rickey, must have been one of bitterest disappointment to him, but O'Malley never winced visibly and began quickly to get the Dodger house in order for 1952. As a result of his way of operating the Dodgers have signed all their players for the forthcoming race and Charlie pressen again will be manager in spite of his disappointing mistakes of last season. Bobby Thomson had secretly quit breathing hard from rounding the bases after that payoff 'homer for the Giants against the Dodgers when O'Malley indicated that Ores- sen would be back again. Shortly thereafter Dressen was duly signed with a chance to build his diminishing fame in this race to come. O'Malley also saw to it that his players were tendered contracts sufficiently attractive to put them in an eager mind. And so here are the Dodgers all set to pick up where >'.iey left off last season. If they fail again it will not be because of a lack of understanding in the front office. That they may repeat their failure goes without saying. Aside from possible shortcomings on the part of Dressen as a manager, they probably will lose Don Newcombe to the draft and with that lose a 20-game winner. However, 'the Dodgers should resemble one big happy family insofar ns their relations with the front office are concerned and that is part of the battle, too. O'IMalley was so determined on this point thai the contracts he mailed out were beyond government limits under the wage stabilization setup and this has resulted in a temporary rhubarb. O'lVlallcy is waiting a ruling • from Washington. Whatever may happen, he is doing the best he can for his hirelings. Among the last three to sign up with the Dodgers was Pee 'Wee Reese, the veteran shortfielder, who, Spas After Sixth Win In Seven Starts Here Sunday on guesses, has $37.000 for 1952. been boosted to Ralph Branca came into the fold at an estimated $15,000 and Clyde King, another pitcher, at around $9,000. Reese supposedly was a Httle put out over the contract at first *cnt him, but quickly got together on a figure to make It 100 per cent signatures for the club as opening day of spring training near*. The Champion New York Giants remain among the clubs with little salary difficulty, while the over-all champion Yankees have several big names to go yet. Several other clubs have sigr.cd all hunds, and some are still in the process of trying to get their hirelings into line and ready for '.he start of preliminary work in sunny south and ditto west. the In jusl a matter of a few days fungoes will begin to ring and In a few weeks the race will be on again. Locals Battle Raider Quint OfPittsburgh Pence Holds Scoring Lead With 17.3 Mark: Comer, Gealz Trail Another top-flight attraction will be offered basketball fans Sunday night at 9 o'clock on the SS Peter and Paul court when the Pittsburgh Raiders make their first appearance in the city by playing the Spas. Boasting an outstanding group of ex-college players, the Steel City quint has an enviable record of 36 victories in 37 games. They were formerly a member of the Professional Basketball League of America and runnersup for the Eastern Professional Basketball championship at Worcester, Mass. Bart Adams, player coach who performed for the Sunbury Mer- curies, titlists of the Eastern Pro League, is a former St. Joseph's College scoring ace. He stands six foot, 1 five inches and directs the team from the qenter post. Other collegians who will be out to hand the locals their second loss in seven starts wiH include, - Snitz Osherow; former star at Westchester Teachers' College and an outstanding longshot; Jackie Kane, ex- Villanova cage artist and a play- maker; Mike Nolan, who performed at Rhode Island State and usually hits in the double figures; George Marcus, who played for Western Maryland, and Jack Brown, Niagara University graduate. Most of the teams that have been sent down to defeat before the Raiders have been clubs in the New England area. . ' The Spas, who won an eye-opener : against the tough Wheeling Blues; here last Sunday, 76-75, are still led! in the scoring parade by slick-! shooting Bob Pence. j Bob rang the bell for 20 tallies Sunday and has boosted • his six- game average to 17.3 with 44 goals; and 16 for 25 from the 15-foot mark j giving him 104 points.

Marciano, the hard punching heavyweight from Brockton. Mass, not only beats his opponents into bloody submission, but he sends them scurrying for a rocking chair and retirement. Like last night, when to all intent and purpo.se.s he ended the career of the Veteran Lee Savold. It is no exaggeration to say that Marciano slaughtered Savold. The 35-year-old Englewood. N. J., fighter was a blood-soaked hulk when his manager, Bill Daly, asked Referee Fete Tomasso to lop the uneven match at the end of the sixth round. WIH Was There "The will wns there but, not the body," said Daly. "I'm going to advise I,ee to retire from the ring tomorrow." John <Ox) DaGrosa, Pennsylvania state athletic commissioner, said IIP was going to suspend Savold indefinitely nnd a.sk him to retire. Sound familiar? It. .should.

John Kieran, former sports columnist for^the New York Times and editor of the Information Please Almanac, has sided with baseball in its- contentions that: 1. The so-called bonus to a youngster to get him to sign his "irst contract should not be figured as a part of the club's regular payroll. This payment, Kieran decided, "is, in effect, an outright sale of property" and not a salary. 2. Baseball is a sport where one sees "the hazards of competition, the fluctuating fortunes of teams, the varying skills of players, the swift changes in the course of pennant races." Because of this, he said, the board should provide •flexibility" in dealing with baseball finances. Kieran's decision was made in the form of recommendations to the ooard. He is a member of a salary board panel on professional-sports, and listened to baseball's arguments in a special hearing in New York on February 6. Kieran's suggestions were announced yesterday at a news conference held by Fred E.. Desmond, deputy executive director for the board. Desmond said he is certain the board will adopt them. They would be a modification of the original policy laid down on January 17. The board then suggested two ways for a club to figure its limit on 1952 payrolls: 1. It could take its 1951 payroll total and not exceed it. 2. It could take its total salary payroll for one year, 1946 through 1950, and use it, plus up to a ten per cent increase. Baseball lawyers argued that this might work a hardship on clubs which had low payrolls in the past but are now trying to beat their way out of the depths. (The St. Louis Browns, under new management, might be an example).

Brother Joseph also announced that the game scheduled here Sunday s between LaSalle High and St. John's of Frederick has been cancelled because of an outbreak of influenza in Frederick.' Half the St.-John's student body was missing from classes yesterday. Brother Joseph said the game had to be cancelled because rescheduled dates offered by LaSalle were not satisfactory to the Frederick school. LaSalle easily won the series opener by a 52-33 count at Frederick. LaSalle's next game following tomorrow's tilt will be with Paw Paw here Friday, February 22.
