Paige, Gibson In Hall of Fame By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer . NEW YORK (UPl)— Either Satchel Paige or Jose Gibson, each a legendary her .of the old Negro baseball leagues, is expected to be honored today with a. special niche in organized baseball's Hall of Fame. Neither ever played in organized baseball prior to 1947 or meets the rigid qualifications of being elected under normal voting procedures —one provision being that a player must have played at least 10 years in the majors —but both v are regarded as «uper stars of another era. . They and other Negro stars of the pre-1947 era have been considered by a special committee which is empowered to name one Negro star each year to the special niche in the shrine at Cooperstpwn, N.Y. Jackie Robinson, the pioneer Negro in organized baseball, and Roy Campanella, who played between 1948 and 1957, have been elected to the shrine. In reaching back prior to 1947, the Hall of Fame is attempting to honor" great Negro players who never had the opportunity to play in the majors or who do not qualify under the " normal voting regulations for the same' or MEAN A LOT I "LITTLE THINGS" i % % # % % % % % % similar reasons.' Paige, for example, was an acknowledge pitching star of the old Negro leagues who. was signed by the Cleveland Indians in 1948 when he was believed to be 42 years old. His major league record, from 1948 through 1953, consisted of a 2831 mark and a two-inning appearance for the Indians in the 1948 World Series. Gibson never played in the majors "—he died in 1947 a few months before^Robinson broke .in with the Brooklyn Dodgers — but had a reputation as the "Babe Ruth of Negro baseball." He is reported by contemporaries on the field and in the press to have hit many tape- measure homers and to have maintained batting averages around the .400-level. Other pre-1947 Negro stars considered by the committee included Ray Dandridge, Cool Papa Bell, Oscar Charleston, Cannonball Dick Redding, Buck Leonard, John Henry Lloyd, Smoky Joe Williams and Monte Trvin. The latter, a member of the committee, compiled a..293 batting average and hit 99 homers during an eight-year big league career with the New York Giants and Chicago Cubs from 1949 through 1956. Underdog Butler Loses to ND 93-87 By United Press International Butler's underdog Bulldogs gave it that old "college try," but in the end, Notre Dame's class prevailed for a 93-81 basketball victory. Butler, invading South Bend with a 7-12 record, played the No. 10 Irish on even terms for most of Monday night's game and refused to wilt after the Austin Carr-led quintet spurted to open the second half. With Billy Shepherd canning 28 points, Butler remained within hailing distance for most of the game and it was nine points by Collis Jones in the final three minutes that really decided the issue. < Carr led the scoring with 36 points while Jones had 18 and John Pleick 17. Butler, leading 41-39 at.the half, gotl8 points from Oscar Evans and 16 from Dave Bennett. UCLA Regains No. 1 Rating NEW YORK, (UPI)—UCLA is No. 1 again but the Bruins know they're not going to have an easy time staying there. The Bruins, who have won 136 of their last 141 games, moved back into the top spot Monday in the United Press International major college basketball ratings after last Saturday night's victory over arch-rival Southern California. The loss dropped the Trojans to. third and Marquette jumped into second place in the balloting of the 35-m ember UPI Board of Coaches. UCLA received 21 first-plae votes and 332 points while Marquette was second with 10 first-place votes and 305 points. Southern California received only one first-place vote and is third with 278 points. The Bruins, . seeking an unprecedented fifth straight NCAA title, are going to have a difficult time protecting their No. 1 rating since they must face Southern California a second time this season. And if the Bruins make it to the tournament, they can expect a ' strong challenge' from Marquette. Unbeaten Pennsylvania, heading towards the Ivy League crown, is in fourth place and once-beaten Kansas, which received two first-place votes, is fifth. Michigan received the other first?place vote. Rounding out the top ten are Jacksonville, - Western Kentucky, Kentucky; South Carolina and Notre Dame. South Carolina was seventh last week and dropped, two spots to ninth while Tennessee, ninth last week, fell but of the top ten. Five coaches from each of the seven geographical areas of the nations comprise the UPI ratings board. Each week they selected the top 10 major college teams in the nation, with points awarded on a 10-9-87-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis on votes from first through 10th.

He says he still loves his- wife. ' ' L He also wants to thank all the kind'people who sent him those get-well cards while he was in the hospital and if you're wondering what that has to do with the way|he feels about his. wife the answer is everything.' She's the one who put him in the hospital. I • Jim WynnJ who" spent a week there being repaired for a knife wound in his side, has spent another one [here recuperating. He did it by; hob-nobbing with a lot of his old baseball budies and competing in the American Airlines Astr ojet golf classic. Astros Will Be Glad Jim Wynn's employers, the Houston Astros, will be glad to hear he was hitting the ball well, particularly for a fellow who had been sliced up pretty good and had just come out of the , hospital. They'll also be glad, to hear he's not mad at anyone. Not j at them for moving him around in the outfield, not at his wife, Ruth/ for doing what she did, not at anyone. "What happened was completely my says about he lost to everything. fault," Jim Wynn that little. decision his wife. "I started I We were celebrating our wedding anniversary *nd I got teed off. It was over something silly." One word led to another and before you j knew it the scene looked like Custer's Last Stand with Jim Wynn playing Custer, looking at all that blood on the floor and saying oh my God, that's mine! "It was a.little knife," Wynn says. "A little steak knife." For a little knife it carved pretty big. j "Hardly Felt It" "I hardlyj felt it at all.'VWynn says. "It was just like getting a little needle' in your finger. When I went to the hospital they did a real good examination on me. They told me no damage was done inside." Jim Wynn and his wife have been married six. years. They're separated now but there is a chance they'll get back together again. The eouple have two children and the best way anybody" has ever figured out yet for children to be raised is by their mother and father- That leaves Jim; Wynn with one other problem. Where is he going to play for Houston? Wynn had - been Houston's centerfielder but when flashy young Cesar Cedeno began getting hot last summer, Spec Richardson,'the Astros' general manager, and Harry Walker, the manager, decided to put Cedeno in center and move Wynnn someplace else. Wynn wasn't happy about the shift in the first place and brooded more as the summer wore on. Finally he' asked to' be traded. No More Problem "There's no more problem now, "Wynn.says. "Just before I came down here I told 'em I don't wanna play centerfield anymore. .I'll play anyplace they want me to, leftfield or rightfield. I'm sick and tired of hearing Harry Walker complaining about my legs. He says I pull muscles all the time and things like that. If you look it up you'll see I play as much as anybody on the ball club. I played 158 games Jim Wynn didn't have a bad year for Houston. He had 87 RBIs, 28 homers and a .282 batting average, which isn't bad at. all,, but 20-year old Cesar Cedeno is. the kid they're all whipped ' up about in Houston. He's one helluva ballplayer," Wynn says. "He knows it because I've told him and he just stands there and smiles." Cesar Cedeno may be getting a little cocky.
