iMcNamara Returning To Six Day Bike Races At Garden Podres, Labine To Take Mound SARASOTA, Fla. (UPI) — Johnny Podres and Clem Labine were selected to take the mound today for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a Grapefruit League exhibition game against the Baltimore Orioles. Rookie Jack Fisher and veteran Ernie Johnson oppose the Dodgers. The Dodgers, all rarin' to battle their way into the first division this season, had to sit around idle Wednesday when rain washed out their scheduled game with the Cardinals. It was the third straight day the Californians were prevented by rain from staging an exhibition game and the fourth time this spring practice season. Gil Hodges, looking more like his old self every day, was select­ ed to travel from the Vero Beach Dodger camp 31 miles away to come here today. "He's the Hodges of old again, believe me," said Joe Pignatano. "Gil is ready." Hodges, in a slump all last year, was kept out of play for the past week with a gimpy leg, but he used his time to get in some batting practice and it looks like he might be coming around. REDS BEAT U.S. MOSCOW (UPD — Moscow's junior all-star squad beat the United States national amateur hockey team. 6-1, Wednesday night. Paul Johnson of St. Paul, Minn, scored the only goal for the Americans. By OSCAR FRALEY NEW YORK (UPI) — Reggie McNamara returns to the wooden saucer Sunday night as an official in the New York revival of the six-day bike race and while he claims the current riders are better you can bet they won't be as tough as the 71-year-old "iron man." There will be 28 riders in this renewal of the six-day grind which opens Sunday night at the lC8th Street Armory. They come from nine nations and all are considered ace riders and yet even to them Reggie is a legend. Small wonder. As a 10-year-old youngster in the Australian bush he laid his hand on a log, after being bitten on the left forefinger by a snake, while his brother chopped off the finger tip. At 21 he was. grabbed by a shark at an Australian beach and still bears the ugly 36-inch scar on his right thigh, although "the shark let mo go because I was a little tough." Survives Burst Appendix At 22 lie survived a burst appendix; the first of four times he was given the last rites of the church. At 30, in a Boston race, he suffered a skull fracture and a triple jaw fracture, but two months later was back for another race. At 39, in Madison Square Garden, Reggie suffered three broken ribs in a race, told the doctors "I push with my feet, not my ribs." and went on to victory. At 47. in California, he suf fercd a broken arm. had it bandaged and went swimming at Mal- libu Beach. At 3-1 lie rode his last race and then bleeding ulcers "made mc quit early." Quick and Alert Reggie, who is assisting his old rival, Alf Letourneur, in the promotion of this revival, explains simply that he "never had time for things to heal" and at 71 shows little effect of the additior. ill 17 times he broke his collar bone. The once-black hair is cinnamon colored now but Reggie is quick and alert. The career during which, at his peak, he netted $50,000 a year started for McNamara at 19 when he won a country fair dirt track race in his native Narromine, Australia. Wrapping up all the country events lie went to Sydney and soon was on his world-wide way after taking a six-day race there in 1911, when he was 24.

It was a lovely little town where "nothing ever happened"—until the great tornado lashed out of nowhere—roaring, swirling, smashing the pleasant homes into splintered ruins. Hurt and bewildered, the people turned in desperate need-to Red Cross. And Red Cross was there. There with canteens, clothing depots, temporary shelter. With medical supplies, life-saving blood. Arid Red Cross people— nurses, disaster workers, volunteers trained to know what to do. Weeks later, when the disaster was just a dim memory to the rest of the world, Red Cross was still there—helping with hard work and outright grants to repair—rebuild—establish families in their homes again. Molly's the teenager with a Junior Red Cross badge on her uniform. The story girl," the children call her. She knows lots of stories and games and hobbies and her regular visits mean the world to kids who can't go out to play. Molly knows you're not too young at 14 to do a lot to help people. That's why she and 20 million other girls and boys have joined Junior Red Cross—the largest youth organization in the country. And they help in many ways. Junior Red Cross members give thousands of hours a month in our hospitals. When disasters strike—Junior Red Cross volunteers look after youngsters in shelters, act as messengers, clerks and canteen workers. : •'-=•" - • The Juniors send relief supplies to children overseas, and carry on international correspondence-album and art programs, building friendly understanding with children all over the world.

Western Auto 4 Yankee Deal With Senators Nearly Ready United Prats International The long-awaited deal between the New York Yankees and Washington Senators appears ready to "pop" — with a bang that would bring back memories of George Weiss' famous Bob Turlcy - Don Larsen deal five years ago. United Press International sources in St. Petersburg, Fla. and Tampa, Fla., reported thai Yankee general manager is now pressing to include two pitchers in the deal. These most likely would be right-handers Pedro Ramos and Dick Hyde. The Yankees originally were dickering only for Hyde. Both Weiss and President Cal Griffith of the Senators confirmed that the negotiations were expanding into a possible multi - player transaction after a two-hour confab in St. Petersburg Wednesday. Plan Another Confab Yes," nodded Weiss when asked if he was seeking a pitcher, and he nodded "yes" a second time when asked if more than one pitcher might be involved. Griffith said he and Weiss started "with a list of 15 players and worked down." He said the two officials would get together ir another week and added, "a deal could be made at any time." Weiss made one of the most sensational deals of the decade five years ago when he acquired Turley and Larsen from the Baltimore Orioles in a 17-man transaction. Indications are that he is trying to build another such deal in an attempt to land Ramos and Hyde, one a dependable starter and the other the American League's No. 1 relief pitcher last season. Speculation On Kubek Griffith hinted at a big deal when he told the UPI in Tampa: "There's a key name involved that hasn't ever been mentioned in the papers." There was specu lation he meant Tony Kubek, the Yankees' regular shortstop last season who is expendable because second-baseman Gil McDougald easily could be shifted to. that spot. Senator Manager Cookie La vagetto concedes his No. 1 need is for a shortstop. The entire Florida exhibition schedule was rained out again Wednesday and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs, 11 8, at Phoenix, Ariz., and the Bos ton Red Sox downed the Cleveland Indians, 14-7, at Tucson Ariz., in the only grapefruit activity.

S. Davis Cup team, says he would like to see the Davis Cup challenge round played in nearby Pasadena's Rose Bowl. But, Jones said, "there are a lot of problems to building a grass court in a football stadium. We will have to make a scientific analysis before we have the answers." Jones said the study to determine the feasibility of using the football stadium would be completed by April 4 when he will present the findings to the U. S Lawn Tennis Assn. in New York. The bringing of the challenge round to Pasadena would incline Jones to give up his captaincy of the U. S. team, he said, because he is head of the Southern California Tennis Assn. and would have many duties to perform. He would definitely retain the captaincy if the challenge round is played anywhere else in the world, he said. (He has not yet formally accepted or rejected the captaincy for this year's competition.) Jones, saying he would favor holding the matches the second week of September if they are held at the Rose Bowl, favors selection of the four probable Davis Cuppers within the next six weeks. BRING UP ROOKIES BOSTON (UPI) — The Boston Bruins will bring up four members of the Providence club in the American Hockey League for the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Min neapolis, however, will have to be a "Cinderella" team to knock off the Hawks, who beat the Lakers in 8 of 12 games during the campaign. Jones Proposes Davis Cup Match In Rose Bowl mcr national amateur bantamweight champion turned the tide of battle as he sent the champion reeling into the ropes with a wild flurry of blows that left Bassey dazed and an easy target. The Springfield, Ohio, challenger followed up his advantage in the next round to cut up the champion even more. He then piled up a big margin of points through the 13th round when Bassey's manager, George Biddies, stopped the fight because the champion could not scs from the blood flowing into his eyes. Moore weighed 125V4 and Bassey 125 for the bout. Given Tremendous Ovation The crowd of 10,000 persons which paid $65,602.93 to see the title bout in Olympic Auditorium gave both fighters a tremendous ovation when they left the ring after their nationally - televised bout. "I knew at the end of the sixth round that I was going to win the title," Moore said happily as he received congratulations in his dressing room. "I was tense in the early rounds and Bassey's left hooks were stinging although I was never in real trouble or hurt. It feels great to be champion. Next time I'll be more confident. I would like the return bout to be here in Los Angeles, but London or Liverpool is all right with me." The fight agreement called for a return match within 90 days— if the champion lost. Bassey Staggers Moor* For the first few rounds Bassey had command as Moore took the majority of the champion"! best punches and once in the second round was staggered by a left to the head that bobbed him on his heels. But Moore, who has never been knocked out and only once downed in his pro career, recovered quickly. But it was not until the sixth round that Moore unleashed his barrage of lefts and rights to the head and body that so dazed Bassey he couldn't find his corner for a moment. And the follow-up in the seventh clinched it for Moore, barring a reversal of the trend of battle that never materialized. Whatever Happened To..

PAUL (BUDDY) BURRIS Paul (Buddy) Burris, dynamic football guard, was the first All- America player turned out by Coach Bud Wilkinson at Oklahoma. Burns was a sophomore phenom from Muskogee, Okla., in 1946—the year before Bud took over—and went on to even greater feats as the Wilkinson split-T rocketed the Sooners to national prominence. In 1948, he was named to the United Press first team All-America' after helping the Sooners to a 9-1 season record and a 14-6 victory over North Carolina in the Sugar BowL Whatever happened to Buddy Burris?
