BRITTSBEAT With BRITT MARTIN Of SCRIBE BOB FRANKLIN of Greenville started his long walk today a 37-inile trek from McKinney's folal Jielcl to Greenville. GREENVILLE'S LIONS, you understand, slipped up and tied McKmncy last Friday night, posting a 2-1 edge m penetrations. It seems that Scribe Bob made a wild statement or -two in his column. The first appears to be he most damaging. He's going to walk all that distance to keep his word. Originally, he had predicted McKinney to trample the Lions by four touchdowns. FURTHERMORE, Scribe Franklin, already a hefty 200 pounds more, said he would eat his column with salt and pepper, or maybe it was Ala Carte, at the next Greenville Pep Rally. Good rnitured to the end, Fnmklin vowed lie needed the exercise anyhow, and struck out-with Bill Hooten, a former Paris Junior College footballer, about 9 a. m. this morning. They should make the scene in Greenville by breakfast Wednesday. Hope they like steak for breakfast, because one of the Greenville citizens will treat them to the biggest T-Bone in town. FRANKLIN IS GETTING so much help and so much free food. etc., that we are tempted to make a rash statement similar to his. But we would probably wind up having to eat the whole newspaper Reckon Bob will make some sort of deal like that about the Wildcats? PROBABLY NOT after his stroll today. ... A FORMER PARISIAN, Van Stayton of North Fulton, Georgia, is turning out to be something of a football star for the North Fulton Wolves. Ho recently booted a short fielder as North Fulton clowned Southwest in a rock-em, sock-em ball game. Stayton, a student of the kicking game, knows the percentages and average distance of every place-kicking specialist in pro football. He moved with his family to Georgia two years ago. ... BONHAM, our neighbor to the west, is joining in the big swing to bowling. A nioclern 12—alley AMK bowling lane is to be constructed in Bonham. The contract has already been let and work will stai-t in about 30 days. Bonham and Sulphur Springs businessmen got together and closed the deal for the lane. . . . GAINESVILLE, more than disappointed over a 12-0 loss to Cleburne Friday night, will host Mt. Pleasant this week in an effort to get back on the winning track. Sports Scribbler Bill King of Gainesville said the officiating was pretty rougli against the Leopards. Flags caused the return of a Mac Wbite touchdown, and an official ruled a touchdown although the ball toter was stopped short of the double stripe. The Leopards may be riled. ... 'Gotta Win' Says Casey PITTSBURGH (AP) — Casey Stengel said it just right—if you overlook" the grammar. "Well," observed t*ie New York manager. Monday after Pittsburgh's 5-2 triumph, "We gotta win the next one or we ain't gonna be playing ball no more," Thai's the way the World Series picture was today, the Pirates needing just one more victory to eliminate the Yankees. After absorbing two terrific shellackings in a row, the battling Hues bounded back with two victories in the enemy's own ball park to take a 3 to 2 Jead in the best-of-seven set. Just two days ago, the odds- makers were laying 5 to 1 on the Yankees to win the series. Today, they're giving odds of 4 to 1 on ihe Pirates. Bob game Friend, winner, Pittsburgh's 18- is Danny Mur- Mississippi Tops AP Football Poll By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Three Big Ten teams are among (he nine leading challengers for Mississippi's No. 1 spot in college football and the oft-repeated contention that the Big Ten plays the toughest schedules of all is in for a test in (he next couple of weeks. Mississippi regained the top place in the voting of the Associated Press panel of 48 newspaper, TV and radio football experts when 1959 national champion Syracuse barely beat a winless but tired up Holy Cross team 15-6. Ole Miss, impressive in its 2(5-0 victory over Vanderbilt Saturday light, polled 19 of the 48 first place votes and 428 points on a 10-9-8 etc. basis. Iowa, Ohio State and Syracuse followed in that order and monopolized the rest of the first place b-jllots. Iowa had 17 firsts and 411 points, Ohio State 8 and 385 and Syracuse 4 and 362. A week ago Syracuse drew 28 of the votes for top place. Minnesota gained 10th place in the balloting. The top teams with first place voles in parentheses: 1. 'Mississippi (19) 2. Iowa (17) 3.

Stengel said he would decide 'later today between Bob Turley, the fast-ball righthander, and Whitey Ford, the curve-ball left-hander. If a seventh game is needed, Murtaugh will call on Vern Law, Ihe only pitcher with two victories in this series. Ford or Turley, which ever doesn't pitch Wednesday, will start the payoff game, provided the Yankees even the series. Stengel, who only a short time ago was aiming for four straight following Pittsburgh's opening game victory, admittedly had his worries today. "If we had won yesterday, I would have started Turley tomorrow," he said. "He will have five days rest. Ford will only have three. I'd prefer to give Ford more rest." The belief is that Casey has got tc go with Ford. Once this summer, Casey had run out of pitchers and Ford volunteered to pitch with two days rest. The 31-year- old Yankee stopper came through with a 1-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Ford, in his only start in this series, blanked the Pirates on four hits last Saturday. Friend pitched last Thursday and was charged with the 16-3 debacle in the second game. He gave up six hits in four innings before he was taken out for a pinch hitter with Pittsburgh trail ing 3-1. The strong-armed right hander, however, struck out six Murtaugh said he would star the game lineup if Turley shouk be the pitcher. Against Ford, Mur taugh will use Hal Smith behint the plate in place of Smoky Bur gess. Another possible change may be Bob Skinner in left in place o Gino Cimoli, if Turley pitches Skinner, who has been out of ac tion since the first game with a jammed left thumb said he was available for pinch hitting duties Monday.

Face, for the third time in the cries, came on and stifled the Yankees the rest of the way. Art Ditmar, for the second time n the series, was shelled from the mound early. The tall right- ander, who was kayocd in , the irst inning of the opener was •mocked out in the second inning his time. A double by Dick Groat and a ingle by Bob Clemente scored one in the third, off reliever Luis Arroyo. Pittsburgh's final run came in the ninth off Ryne-Duren on Smoky Burgess' single, an error, a wild pitch and Don ioak's single. The Yankees scored in the second on a double by Elsfon Howard and two infield outs. Roger Maris' lome run in the third, his second of the series, closed out the Yankee scoring.
