Danny Murtaugh is pondering these days: shall he use five or six starting pitchers? Poker-faced, the Pirate manager remarked: "Bob Johnson is a strong candidate as the fifth starter. Well, then there's Nelson Briles, too." : . Briles was acquired last week from the St. Louis Cardinals in a trade involving outfielder Matty Alou, one of the Pirates' most consistent hitters. Johnson came to Pittsburgh, in a deal involving catcher Jerry May, relief pitcher Bruce Dal Canton ; r.nd infielder Freddie Patek. Dock Ellis, who no-hit San Diego, last season, nodded in assent as Murtaugh listed his pitchers at a luncheon. Also carrying the pitching burden that helped the Pirates Steve Blass, Luke Walker and Bob iMose. It isn't Math, History or English. But it's just as basic. To earn a living, he needs the old fundamentals. To keep on living, he must learn the right way to drive. Yet only one out of three high school students takes a driver education course. Too bad. Automobile accidents are the number one killer of-American teenagers. How important is driver education? Well, it's important enough that trained drivers have 50% fewer accidents and traffic violations. Important enough that many insurance companies offer lower rates for teenagers who have completed driver training. And important endugh that new car dealers across the nation loan 34,000 automobiles every year to our public schools for driver training. It's your responsibility to help make sure your teenager takes the proper subjects in school. So make sure driver education is one of them. Where it's not available, we suggest that you consider a good private driving school. When it comes to preparation for liv- ... ing, learning how to drive safely really '-" is basic. .- ^JSsS* National Automobile Dealers Association OMfcial orflartiiallon ot America's Irancftlaad nasi car and truck dealers • Washington, D.C, One in a series presented by N.A.D.A., this newspaper, and the dealers of our community.. sponsored by- Tipton Daily Tribune s : (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Young fellows have to stick together so maybe it's ' only natural Casey Stengel should get up on his feet today, clear hjs throat, and put in a few words for a former rival — Frank Lane. Stengel, who is 80, sees no reason in the world why Lane, just a growing boy of 74, should have any trouble in his brand . new capacity as head man of the Milwaukee Brewers. Stengel believes he'll'do a fine job. "Always has before, hasn't he?" Casey said and asked at the same time. "If he'd been in Europe somewhere or if be was in the war in Vietnam it'd be a different story, but he hasn't•> been laying idle. He's been scouting and working for Baltimore. He's been watching all the clubs in the American League, the National League, the American Association and the Pacific Coast League. He still thinks he knows where the players are, how many are good, how many aren't, and how many never will be." No Problem . Then Lane shouldn't have any problem, regardless of his age, was the question asked of Stengel, who the Yankees once let go at 70 because they felt he was too old. "He's gonna be general manager, right?" Stengel said. "He just sits and knows the rules. He's had the experience. How many times has he been general manager before, three or four? (four). So you can't say he don't know the job, can you? He's been scouting so he knows the player situation. Any man who does that has more knowledge about the players than the managers have. The managers never get to scout 'em." Stengel and Lane were rivals • in the 50's when Stengel was having his remarkable run as manager of the Yankees and Lane was performing almost as remarkably as general manager of the Chicago White Sox. .FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 5, 1971 . Lane always would needle Stengel and the Yankees but there never was any malice behind the jabs. "They were up and we were, down so I used to needle them anytime I could merely to excite greater interest," Lane says, "Why pick on the have- nots? If you had to pick on anybody I'd much i sooner take on the best. That was why I generally singled but Casey and the Yankees." Stengel doesn't hold those past jibes against Milwaukee's new boss, j "He and rl never ran around together but tier's always been a; success in baseball," says Casey. "He's been - with' two very successful clubs and right now he's coming over from a world championship club and you got to remember he was in' Mexico looking over players also so, why would! you ever be concerned by what happened before? j His Club is Best ' "He always thinks his club is the best," Stengel adds. "Half the time he thinks he's right . and half the' time he isn't. You gotta remember he made some very good trades for Chicago.' He got that.' pitcher (Biily) Pierce^: for them and also (Nellie) Fox. He knows what he's doing | and I think he'll come out all right in Milwaukee or wherever he goes."

(IJPI)-i Jchnell Haas, golfer, cheerleader and all-around female athlete, wants a chance to play' on the South Bend Riley High School golf team. "We're suing," said her mother, Mrs. Joseph Haas. "Johnell could.make that team. The coach said so himself. But the rul e is keeping her off f he team." The rule in question is one set down by the Indiana High School Athletic Association rnd prohibits girls from playing on school teams. The IHSAA has been sued before by parents challengyig its various rules. However, courts have been reluctant to reprimand the association, since membership is on a voluntary basis. There is some tradition involved, too, for the 17-yearold girl. Johnell's older brothers, Kevin, 22. and Tom, ,19, have starred on Riley golf teams in the past. Riley's golfers over the long pull have established a top record, having won state titles in 1962 and 1965 and taking runnerup honors in 1964 "Jonnell wants to make that team to pave the way for other ake the squad besides helping er open things up for other girls. Some of her friends are good tennis players, arid swimmers but they can't try out for the teams, either." Johnell's interest in the links came about naturally.

The other open division finals set for tonight will be in the two-mile relay. exams. The wasn't defense, victory. "We stunk the place up," Watson said. "We didn't hustle on defense and Northern got a lot of easy buckets because we weren't getting] down the floor. I think. that our! layoff definitely showed—but that is why we play that game before -we get back into the conference schedule." . Super-sophomore George McGinnis, who leads the Big Ten in scoring (35.3) and rebounding (20.7), had 45 points against Northern for his biggest night yet. He also snared: 20 rebounds. Center Steve Downing and guard John Ritter also had career highs. Downing scored |17 points on 7-11 shooting and 3-3 from the foul line and grabbed 14 rebounds in over 32 minutes of action--the most he-has logged since suffering a back injury against the Australian All j- Stars. Ritter played an outstanding all-around game with 14 points, five rebounds and seven assists. Joining McGinnis, Downing and Ritter in the lineup will be Joby Wright, a .525 shooter who averages 19.8 per | game and Jim "Bubbles" Harris, who carries a 13.3 average. I With the likes! of Larry Weatherford, Bob Ford, Bill Franklin and George Faerber—all dou-r ble-digit scorers—Purdue has chalked up a 10-4 overall record. They'll most likely be joined by either Denny Gamauf or Jovan Price In the starting lineup. . "Defense will} be the key to this game," Watson said. "I think we can score with anybody, but if we don't play any defense, it won't do us any good. But we'll come ready to play so the defense should take care of itself." ... Overall, Purdue has won 73 games in the series while the Hoosiers have captured gnly 43. Roche Breaks Record After nearly three years of . frustrations, the "real John Roche" has stood up- Roche, the talented South Carolina . guard, broke the Atlantic Coast Conference scoring record Thursday night as he scored 56 points in leading the '. seventh-ranked Gamecocks to an easy 118-83 victory over Furman. "He could do that. al! f he time," said Frank McGuire. the South Carolina coach. "He's the most unselfish player I've ever coached. He could easily score 40 and 50 a game if h° didn't pass the ball off." Roche, one of M<?Guire's many-New York City imports, has had bis share of frustration during his three-year varsity career. He has twice won ACC Player of the Year honors and twice he has seen his te^m upset th? post season play. But Thursday he had 21 points at the 'half and left in the final two minutes after breaking the record. " "Our boys must really think Roche Is great," said Joe Williams, the Furman coach.
