NO TIME LJKf THE PRESENT/ Baptists And Methodists In Frostburg Church Finah English Baptist and Frostburg Methodist will fight it out for the championship of the Frostburg Church Basketball League Thursday night,' beginning at 8:30, on the Beall High court.

Methodist eliminated Guy Mallow's Congregational team in a 45-44 thriller, while Baptist 'routed St. Paul's Lutheran, 58 to 41.

West Virginia Goes To Tenth In Basket Poll NEW YORK — (JP) — The National champion Kentucky Wildcats kept a firm hold on first place in the Associated Press weekly basketball standings today, but if they looked over their shoulder they'd recognize a new pursuer. Illinois, which just about clinched the Big Ten title by upending Iowa, 78-62, Saturday, leaped from .fifth to .the runnerup spot in the latest ratings by the nation's sports writers and broadcasters. Kansas State and Duquesne, who had enjoyed the honor of breathing down the Wildcats' necks, lost little prestige, however, from- their upset defeats over the weekend. The Kansas Staters, surprised by Colorado 67-57, fell only a notch, from second to third and at the same tune shoved Duquesne, its IB- game winning streak broken by Villanova, from third to fourth. Kentucky picked up 51 of the 133 first-place votes cast and scored a total of 953 points on the basis of ten for a first-place vote, nine for second and on down the line, Illinois, which got only one first- place vote a week ago, rated 16 this time, probably on the basis of its important conquest of Iowa. West Virginia, winner of 21 of its 23 games, wrenched the No. 10 spot from St. Bonaventure, a 65-63 victim of Canisius. Top ten (first-place votes in parentheses) : Recnrrfs Points 1.

LITTLE SPORT By Rouson Pitchers Made To Hit Dirt At Dodgers' Camp VERO BEACH, Fla. —{/P)~ That lost art, sliding, has made an appearance at the Brooklyn Dodgers training camp.

PETERSBURG, Fla. — OP) — Mickey Mantle— billed as the new Joe DiMaggio — is the "big if" of the New York Yankee camp. For years the sports writers wrote about DiMaggio's operations.

When Mantle grabbed a bat and approached the plate last Friday in the first Yankee drill, Coach Jim Turner refused to throw to him. "Mantle has been ordered to take no hitting practice except bunting for one week," the club announced to newsmen. Yankees Cautious * You can't blame the Yanks for being over - cautious about their prize property. The sight of him stretched on Yankee Stadium turf still is green in their memory. Chasing a fly ball by Bobby Thomson, Mantle suddenly' collapsed as though shot by a gun. He was carried off the field and rushed to a hospital. Mickey spent about ten days in the hospital and hobbled on crutches for weeks. It was announced that Mantle suffered a. severe sprain of a ligament. No operation "would be necessary, A switch hitter who alternates against right and lefthanded pitching, Mantle would be handicapped as a righthander if the knee does not come around. In that position he throws his full weight on the right leg while taking his full cut. From "C" To Major* The knee injury Is on the right leg. A bone Injury that developed into osteomyelitis in 1946 is on the right ankle. Any doubt of Mantle's fitness for play would come as a crushing blow to the Yanks who rank him among their greatest farm products. The youngster Jumped from. Class C at Joplin, Mo., to the majors in one hop last summer. Playing the outfield for the first time in his career after two seasons a minor league infielder, the speedy Mantle opened the season in right field. He slumped in early season and finally was farmed to Kansas City in July. You can get an idea of what might have happened to Mantle if he had been allowed to make a more normal advance to Class Triple A from these figures. In 40 games with Kansas City he batted .361, hit 11 home runs and drove home 50 runs. Back with the Yanks in late August, Mantle finished with a .267 mark, 13 homers and 65 runs batted in.

William and Mary backed into a* sixth spot in the eight-team affair last night by virtue of Wake Forest's 73-58 victory over South Carolina. The defeat left South Carolina's Gamecocks as the team least likely to make the tourney. William and Mary, through with loop competition, has a 10-6 conference record. Berths already had been sewed up by West Virginia (14-1), North Carolina State (11-2), Duke (11-3), Clemson (10-4) and Purman (9-5). Here's how it looks today for the three teams still in the running for two spots in the tournament: League Games W L Pet. Left 4 .636 3 6 .625 2 6 .571 1 Maryland 7 G. Washington 10 South Carolina. S Maryland appears certain to win two of its remaining games from Richmond (3-10) and Davidson (4-13). George Washington seems equally sure of winning tonight over W&L (3-9). The two teams also must play each .other. South Carolina still has to face fourth-place Clemson. A win tonight for GW and two Maryland triumphs will put those two teams in the.tourney regardless of how South Carolina makes out ia its final contest. In addition to giving GW » chance to cop a tourney berth, the contest tonight in Washington will give W&^'s Jay Handlan an opportunity to become the third major college basketball player of all time to pass the 2,00.0-point mark in a career. Handlan now has 1,970 points and two .games in which to hit the necessary 30. Two other conference games are on tap tonight with no bearing on the tournament. Duke goes to Davidson and N.
