BRITTS BEAT With BRITT MARTIN n in looms Friday night in Greenville /•;„,, , anc * the Greenville Lions tangle fight for supremacy in District 6-AAA. PLENTY RIDES on the outcome of the game. The er could very well be a contender for the r-nnfpj^npp „],„.,.,• . . TT " — •• ^v/.^v^.vn,! for the conference clwmponship However, there seems to be more riding on the outcome than the district ties of district play. r,.n™«in >, ? BATTLE (and quite a grudge it is) looms. G.eenvllle has not whipped the Wildcats in 16 years or so. As we said before, some of the boys who will wrangle in the tussle were not born the last time Greenville turned the tide over Paris. WITHOUT A DOUBT, the Greenville team will be the strongest from the Hunt County Capitol in many a moon. They have a ball club that is heavy laden with Seniors. Best of all (for them) they have some hoys who can throw the football as well as run with it. Earlier in the year we said that Jerry Jolley would be the bigges.t Lion of them all as far as getting the job done is concerned. That 1 ? proved to be true. He's a real good ball player, and all arounc athlete. GETTING BACK to the game itself, Greenville will be hart to bent after suprising everyone around, including themselves, bj tying mighty McKinney 0-0 Friday night in McKinncy. Thc> probably have enough confidence left to go out and try to whip the world although they are usually rolling over and playing dead about this time of year. PERSISTENT PARIS wil be no easy mark for the Lions no matter what the Lions can muster. They feel pretty confident themselves after upending Masterless Mt. Pleasant 7-6 in the rain Friday night at Mt. Pleasant. FURTHERMORE, the Wildcat ofense is beginning to show improvement, although little of it was unveiled Friday night. Coach Raymond Berry chose instead to have his boys play a defensive game, using the punt as a massive club against the bigger Bengals. His strategy paid off handsomely although the Tigers piled up a lopsided advantage in first downs and yards rushing. DEFENSE was the byword with the Wildcats when their goal was threatened. And their offensive blocking on that touchdown drive was the best we've seen the Cats put out all season. OUTSTANDING DEFENSIVE performances were turned in by many Wildcats., particularly Jimmy Aylor, Bradley O'Brien, Ronald Prince and Leslie Route. Others who slu'ned were Ronald Antoine, Steve Dietz and Johnny Inscoe. RIGHT NOW, we don't see how Greenville can run away wiUi the Wildcats. Nor can we see the Cats drubbing the Lions. Lots of Paris fans are hoping for a dry field, but not this scribe. Not wishing the fans a hard time because of weather, but the Wildcats proved to be excellent mudders against Mt. Pleasant. A slick ball would keep the Lions from passing too much, or make it doubly dangerous if they did, and we feel that the Cats can more than match the Liens overland. . ... BRING ON THOSE LIONS. The Wildcats are ready. . . . WONDER if any Parisians will be in Dallas this afternoon for the regional Go-Kart championships. The big doings will be for 200 drivers at South 77 Go-Kart Strip with 40 races carded for men, women, teens, girls and juniors in every engine classification. . . . IT WAS RATHER SAD to see Jim Swink turn in his uniform to Hie Dallas Texans. Swink had not exactly set the woods on fire, but he had done a good job for the Texans. Lil Abner Haynes had pushed Swink out of a starting job and the sturdy senior was also falling behind in his medical studies at TCU. Remember when his name was magic in the Southwest Conference. He's one of the 'greates.1 broken field runners in the game. We have never seen a player who could pick his blockers as successfully as Swink. THE PARIS NEWS, SUNDAY, OCT. 9, I HO Yankees Roar Into Series Lead, WHITEY HOT—The- New York Yankees' Whitey Ford shut out Pittsburgh with four hits in Saturday's third game of the World Series. The score was 10-0. By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Tile slugging New York Yankees humiliated the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday 10-0 with a 16-hit barrage that included a grand slam homer by little Bobby Richardson and Mickey Mantle's 14th World Series home run. While Yankee bats boosted the Yankees into a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series, chunky Whitey Ford baffled the bug-eyed Pirates with a four-hit shutout, his first in 13 Series starts. Records fell all over spac i ous Yankee Stadium jammed with 70,001 fans as the stunned Pirates watched the Yanks knock out Vinegar Bend Mizell in the six- run first inning and then rolled it up with four more in the fourth. Richardson, a quiet little .252 hitter who had only one homer all season, slammed a 3-2 pitch from reliever Clem Labine into the low- SERIES IMMORTAL Add Richardson To Yank Heroes NEW YORK (AP) — Little Bobby Richardson achieved World Series immortality Saturday because a bunt went foul. In the big New York Yankee first inning, with the bases loaded, Richardson was given the sign lo bunt. But he couldn't manage it. Then with the count 3 and 2 he swung. "f was just trying to meet it and keep out of a double play." he said with a wry smile. "Matter of fact when I got to first I thought it had been caught, then the umpires waved me around." It was a grand slam homer for the 5-foot-9, 166 pounder from Sumter, S.C., the seventh ever hit in a World Series. Richardson went on to crack a two-run single in the fourth for two more runs batted in and a grand total of six, a Series record for one game. "The whole team was tickled abou' Bobby," said Whitey Ford, brushing aside praise for his shutout. "He's such a clean living kid, sair 1 Ford. "Last year he hit .300 and was actually our best player, but he never seemed to get any credit. Ford acknowledged this was his "happiest moment" and that this "was as good a game as 1 have pitched all year. I kept bearing down all the way. I made believe the score was 1-0 or 2-0. Manager Casey Stengel said proudly that Bobby "sure has built himself up in this World Series." er left field seats with the bases full in the first. In the fourth, Richardson ,set a Series single game RBI record of six by knocking, in two more with a single, also with the bases loaded. It was Danny Murtaugh's 43rd birthday but if anyone yelled, "Happy Birthday," to the Pirate manager after this second crushing defeat in two successive games, he deserved a squirt in the eye from the tobacco-chawin* Irishman. The Yanks, who clobbered the Pirates 16-3 in Pittsburgh Thursday after losing the opener 6-4, boosted their hit tola! for three games to 48, If they keep it up they'll wind up hitting .500. For the second straight game, Murtaugh had to use six picthers, starting with loser Mizell and running through Labine, Fred Green, George Witt, Tom Cheney and Joe Gibbon. The same five relief men were slugged Thursday. The Yankees in three games are hit- ling at a club batting average of .397. Ford retired the. first nine men he faced until Bill Virdon led off the fourth with a double off the auxiliary Scoreboard in right center. Virdon died on second base. Bill Mazeroskl led off the sixth with a single to left center and advanced as far as third on two infield outs before Ford retired the side. In the seventh Dick Stuart singled to center with one out and Gino Cimoli walked. A fast double play, started by Ford on Ha! Smith's rap to the box, ended that faint threat. Roberto Clemente singled with two gone in the ninth and Stuart had a life when Tony Kubek fumbled his grounder, but Ford struck out Cimoli to end the game. Whitey, winning his sixth Series game, walked only one and struck out three. Mantle moved within one homer of Babe Ruth's all-time Series record of 15 when he sent a pitch by Green into the Pirate bullpen in left, about 430 feet from the plate, in the' fourth. He hit one off Green in Pittsburgh Thursday. The Mick, home. run champ of the American League, singled on his first two trips before hitting the homer. He followed with a ground rules double into the right field seats, while batting. left- BOX SCORE NEW YORK (AP)-The official boxscore of the third game of the i960 World Series: Pittsburgh (N> AB U 11 BI 0 A Virdon cf 4 0 t 0 3 0 Groat ss ... 4000 1 1 Clemente rf ..........4 0 00 0 Cimoli If 3 0 0 0 2 0 Smith c .3 0 09 Hoak 3b 3 0 0 0 91 Mazerosk' 2b . 3 0 1 Stuart Ib ......4 010 0 1 3 060 Labine p . ....0 0 0 0 L Green p . 1 0 000 0 Witt p 0 0 0 0 0 0 a.

Dnly six other men ever did the rick in a Series, five of them Yankees. His only homer in regu- ,ar season play came off Arnold Portocarrero in Baltimore, April 30 In fact he had hit only three in his entire major league career. This game was all over 'long before Prime Minister Nehru of India arrived to take his seat,as an honored guest in about the sixth inning. Shortly after Ted Williams, the retired Boston slugger, threw out the first ball, the'Yanks threw out the first Pirate pitcher. Bob Cerv opened the attack on the left-handed Mizell leading- off the first. After Roger Maris flied out, Mantle singled past Mizell and Bill Skowron drove in Cerv with another single through the box into center. When 'Mizel! walked Gil McDougal on fouur straight pitches, loading the bases, Murtaugh replaced Mizell with Labine, who had given up five of the seven runs scored in the'sixth inning Thursday at Pittsburgh.

Ford opened with a single to short center. Cerv and Maris grounded out, but Mahtie drove his long homer into the bullpen. Successive singles by Skowron and McDougald convinced Murtaugh he had seen enough of Green. In came Witt who gave up a single to Howard that filled the bases and a two-iun single by Richardson into left field. Richardson's total of six RBI broke the old mark of five, held jointly by Mantle (who did it Thursday), Tony Lazzeri, Bill Dickey and Ted Kluszewski. Yogi Berra didn't start but made the lineup for his 64th Series game, and 57th in succession, when he took over for Maris in right field at'the start of Uw seventh; " . . -V-j It developed that Maris' strained his 1 side while being ' thrown out at the plate in the fifth.

Vern Law, the 20-g~ame winning right-hander who won the opener with relief help from Elroy Face, will be Pittsburgh's pitcher- in 'the fourth' game". Harvey Haddix, a lefty, is due Monday. The Yankees now have a better choice'of closing out the Series in their home park where the next two games will be played. • If there is a sixth game it will 'ie played in Pittsburgh' Wednesday, after an off day Tuesday. Murtaunh said he had Boh Friend, Thursday's loser, in'.,the bullpen Saturday and 'would have him out there again Sunday.; Mi zell explained his trouble came because; he "couldn't get his curve ball down." Asked how the Pirates pitched to Mantle, Murtaugh said. "We go around the 'horn on him (try everything) but we didn't go around enough today." Richardson had driven in only seven runs since the All-Star break. He had 26 for the season. And, he had two in Thursday's second game for a total of eight for the Series. Of the six Yanks who have hit grand slammers- in Series play, five still are with the club. They are Gil McDougald, Mantle, Berra, Skowron and Richardson. The other was hit by the late, Tony Lazzeri in 1936. The only non- Yank to do it was Eimer Smith of Cleveland against Brooklyn in 1920. Only 5,727 paid admissions were recorded when the New York Titans beat Buffalo's Bills, 27-3, in their rainy American , Football League home opener. Buckeyes Crush Illinois,34 to I CHAMPAIGN, III. (AP) — Ohio State's undefeated Buckeyes, sparked by a 100-yarc' kickoff return by Bill Wentz and excellent quartcrbacking of Tom Matte, crushed Illinois 34-7 Saturday in a Big Ten battle of national football powers. An Illinois homecoming crowd of 71,119 sat quietly through the first half and watched fullback Bob Ferguson pound out a 13-0 Ohio State lead and then gave up all hope when Wentz took the opening kickoff of the second half and went all the way for a touchdown . It was the third consecutive victory for Ohio State, the nation's fifth-ranked team in The AP weekly poll, while Illinois—ratwd No. A— suffered its first setback of the season. Matte really opened up the game in the third quarter. He kept the ball oi< a pitchout option, cut inside his left end and went 57 yards for a fourth Buckeye touchdown. Illinois could get no deeper than the OSU 40 in the first half. Illinois finally crashed through on a three-yard plunge by Jim Brown late in the fourth period. 0!-' State 0 13 14 7—34 Illinois 0 0 0 7—7 Crosetti Tops Series $$$ Men By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK W) —The champion of all time for World Series participation and money earned is Frank Crosetti, the New York Yankees' third base coach. This is Crosetti's 19th series, the first eight as a Yankee player and the last 11 as a coach. Crosetti has collected a total of $111,114 for the 18 previous series and undoubtedly will get another full share when the official spit is announced later. Casey Stengel hasn't done quite as well but he has piled up $72,209.12 from 2 previous s e r ies, nine as a manager and three as a player with Brooklyn in 1916 and the New York Giants in 1922 and 1923. Of the current active Yankees the big man is Yogi Berra. This is his llth series. In 10 previous series he collected a total of $66,621.17. "I've got a few friends in from the West Coast at Pittsburgh," said Stengel, "and they tell me about this little kid sittin' in with them behind our Yankee dugout in that second game. "Well, the little fella's wavin' a Pittsburgh flag and yellin' all the time until about the fifth inning. Then we score them seven runs in the sixth inning and my people ihey start yellin' and the -kid he can't yell too much, but he starts to tryin' to out-yell my people and that's pretty tough. "Pretty soon, why my people get to yellin' so much, the kid can't keep it up. The little fella's almost dead. "Well, my people see he's about gone so they pass him down one of them pencils I got at the bank. Got my signature o.i it. "That kid looks at that pencil with my signature on it and him almost gone, and you know what he starts doin'? "Why, he starts yellin' and shoutin' for my club!" Some 20,000 baseball fans have come to New York for the series, says the New York Convention and Visitors Bureau. Shotgun Pellets Prove No Trouble BAY CITY, Mich. W>— Bay City Central High School has a new football hero today. He is Fred Pease, who despite having several shotgun pellets in one leg, helped his Central team to beat Flint Central 26-0 Friday. He had recently been shot in a hunting accident. Pease, 16 and a first-stri n g guard, played the entire game. These Pennant Winners Smoke CAM A REAL CIGARETTE Roger Maris, N. Y.
