PAGE BIZ BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, APRIL M, ill Bucs be Patsies For Bums Again in 54? Dodgers Two Years By BEN PHLEGAR AP Sports Writer Pittsburgh's "Who Kids" tangle with the Brooklyn Dodgers tonight, hoping they can carry over at least some of the luck they had against the New York Giants. The four - game Brooklyn series is an important one, not only to the two clubs, but to the rest of the league as well. It has been the Dodgers' almost unfailing ability to make the Pirates play dead the past two seasons that has eased the Brooklyn pennant path. In 1952 the Dodgers beat the Pirates 19 times. Last year they beat them 20 times. The other clubs' chances of cathing Brooklyn •while the Dodgers had such hospitable "cousins" were just about impossible. First Series This is the first full-scale series between Brooklyn and the "Who Kids," so called because who ever heard of them. More than half of the Pittsburgh starting lineup never had played in a major league park until two -weeks ago. Thomas Is Vet Center fielder Frank Thomas is the only member of the lineup that beat the Giants 1-4 yesterday No One Weeping For Mobile Bears By The Associated Press Was someone shedding a tear for the Mobile Bears? You can save your sympathy, because the Bruins were apparently playing 'possum. They just finished slapping down from Chattanooga for the Vols major league games in a season. And he's la his second year in the big time. Despite their limited experience the young Pirates already have diagnosed the Giants to perfection. They've met four tunes. Pittsburgh has won three and put up a stiff battle in the other contest The Pirates and Dodgers have played once this season, in Ebbets Field last week, where the Dodgers won 7-4. Good Pitching: Against the Giants yesterday the Pirates got their first nine-inning performance by a pitcher. George O'Donnell, last season's Rookie of the Year in the Pacific Coast League, stymied the New Yorkers on eight hits and should have won even easier except for a pair of errors in the eighth inning. Hal Rice, who came to the Pirates last'year from the St. Louis Cardinals, h o mer e d with two aboard in the first inning and the Giants never came close to catching up. The only other major league action yesterday was at Baltimore, where the Orioles tripped the Cleveland Indians behind the five- hit pitching of Duane Pillette. Baltimore pounded Mike Garcia the powerful New Orleans Pelicans three times running. They vaulted from seventh to fifth place in the Southern Association standings And they felt so good .about it that they sold one of their top hitters to Fort \JVorth. Ray Cuccharini, who doubled and drove in two runs last nigh in Mobile's 6-5 victory over the Pels, became expendable when Brooklyn sold Bill Antonello outright to the Bears. Atlanta took possession of the top rung on the standings When swarthy Leo Cristante 'measured Birmingham for his fourth straight success in the Crackers' 5-1 verdict while co-leader Little Rock fell 5-0 to Memphis. Resurgent Nashville copped a 4-3 decision Derby Favorite May Emerge Correlation Faces Fisherman Saturday NEW YORK (#)—A race to determine the probable Kentucky Derby post-time favorite is on tap tomorrow''at Jamaica with Correlation and Fisherman, tangling in the mile and one-eighth of the $100,000 added Wood Memorial. Perhaps as many as 10 other three-year olds, will accept the issue but it's still a two-horse race, A victory for any other than R. S. Lytle's California-owned Correlation or C. V. Whitney's Fisherman would be the turf upset of the year. Correlation, a lanky animal af- fectionaly known by his handlers as "Bones," is the current 2 to 1 Derby favorite. Fisherman, a mite of a horse at 900 pounds, is the co- second choice at 5 to 2 with Determine, already on the grounds at Churchill downs. Willie Shoemaker. America's No. 1 Winning jockey last year, will be astride Correlation. Hedley Woodhouse again will pilot Fisherman. The race, scheduled to get underway shortly after 5 p.m. CST, will be telecast and broadcast. from the box before he could get anybody out in the first inning. Art Houtteman checked the Birds on four hits the rest of the way but Pillette was the master. The only Cleveland run came in the first when Pillette walked Larry Doby with the bases loaded. fourth victory in their last five outings. Cristante lost his shutout in the eighth when Baron .centerfielder Hal Grote homered. Cristante leads the league's flingers with a 4-0 record. Rodin Keys Vols Nashville's s ud d e n about-face may be reflected in the spirit ol outfielder Eric Rodin, who keyec the Vol victory with a pair o\ home runs. His second broke a 3-3 a notch to seventh place. Ken Landenberger and Ralph Rowe found the homer range for the first time this season in helping Paul Stuffel to his first victory over Little Rock. The right- hander's fast ball had the jumps, and nine Travs struck out. It was the first shutout victory for the Chicks in 1954. Rowe, a little fellow, added a triple and a double to his home run and sparked the 11-hit Memphis offense which handed Little Rock rookie Vince Trakan his first loss. He had won twice. Democrats Drop Practice Game DAYTONA BEACH. Fla. (/P)—Defeated 7-3 by the Republicans in practice game last night, the Democrats congressional baseball team had these encouraging words from Manager Syd Herlong (Fla.) today: "We'll win the big one." He said, "Remember the Yankees lost in spring exhibitions too." The teams, undergoing spring "training" here during the Easter recess of the House, play their annual game for charity in Washington June 15. Last night, the Republicans wasted no time going to work on Rep. W. M. (Fireball) Wheeler of Georgia. Wheeler loaded the bases on walks and Rep. Sam Coon (Ore.) singled in two runs. Rep. Glenn Davis (Wis.), the winning pitcher, got another first-inning run on an error. The Democrats got two runs in the second on Wheeler's grounder and an error but the Republicans went ahead to stay with four runs n the third. Wheeler gave up five lits and Davis, four. Outfielder Jim Fridley of the Baltimore Orioles was a star tackle for ihe University of West Virginia in 1946 and 1947. Sports Roundup— AAU Is Taking on New Look By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) — The Amateur Athletic Union, which is the governing body of amateur sports in the nation, has long had the reputation of being a very stuffy organization, and it has been a label not entirely undeserved. The head men of the AAU — there, we've done it again—have, •with rare exceptions, seemed to live forever, Unlike old soldiers, they haven't even faded away. At the bigger track meets there sometimes are so many of them in the infield 'it is difficult to conduct the pole vault. No Pay Almost everyone concedes that they all have been fine and dedicated men for many, many years, and that they have been determined to keep amateur athletics on the high moral level that they were, say, 50 years ago. They have labored without pay, being men of independent means. They have, in fact, done everything they could have done for amateur athletics except recognize the need of publicity. There they have s t e a d f ast- ly balked. They have fought shy of the press. Those whose duty—and wish—it has been to whoop up reading matter about track and field events, in particular, have had hard going. It might only be a coincidence, but the crowds have fallen off steadily at such events in this country while they were zooming in other parts of the world. That is. as we say. the way things have been. But now the AAU. or at least its branch store known as the Metropolitan Assn., is changing all of a sudden in a manner to turn your hair. Prom here on the old lady intends to use rouge. As a starter, and a good one, the local body has taken on the renowned Col. Walter (Cappy) Wells, who knows almost everybody in the country, to edit its monthly magazine, The Met. and to speak pleasantly at all times to seekers after information. Throwing himself into the great humanizing project is Jim Farley, the former postmaster general, who knows almost everybody in the world, and who sincerely feels that the AAU and the press should become acquainted for the benefit of the youth of the land.

(NEA) Arkansas Sportettes Wyatt's Recruiting Is Good, 'So Far' BY CARL BELL Associated Press Sports Writer Bowden Wyatt is making a few of his rare public appearances at Razorback Club and civic club meetings this spring—but only when he can sandwich them between his talent recruiting endeavors. j The University of Arkansas foot- A&M basketball team last winter, ball coach shied completely away rom speech-making during the ilaying season last fall and so far las turned down all invitations to appear on television. It isn't that the handsome men- or is bashful or afraid of crowds. He just believes he can do more o win ball games by devoting his ime to other activities. Right now he and his assistants re busy trying to round up future Razorbacks from among the high chool senior crop. He says the ecruiting picture is good at pres- nt but adds cautiously: "It's a ong time until Sept. 1." when the >rospects actually will enroll at 'ayetteville. Gerald Barnett, the sophomore ho led the Razorback basketball jam in scoring this year, has een expelled from the university or breaking some sort of a school ule about getting dates in at a ertain time. However, he expects 0 return next fall and will be ligible for next basketball season.

LOUIS f/P) —August A. Busch, president of the St. Louis Cardinals insists there was no hidden reason for the trade which sent veteran outfielder Enos Slaughter to the New York Yankees. Cardinal fans x have been demanding to know why Slaughter was traded for four minor league players. And Busch is concerned about numerous suggestions that there was something mysterious about the deal. In a letter to the Globe-Democrat yesterday. Busch said: "I don't know that anything I might say could make Enos' friends feel any tetter, but I assure them that there is nothing hidden from them. The reasons I have given are the only ones and there is nothing mysterious about them." At the time of the April 11 trade, Busch said the Cardinals were trying to build a young ball club and, with several promising rookie out; fielders knocking at the door, room ' had to be made for them.

(NEA) Snead Seeks Rally Today Slammer Falls Behind In Rich Vegas Event LAS VEGAS, Nev. W) —Lloyd Mangrum and Ted Kroll, a pair of decorated veterans of war and golf, led the way into the second round of the $35,000 Tournament of Champions today and the erstwhile favorite, Sam Snead, sought to stage a comeback. The highly regarded Mangrum and the somewhat surprising Kroll clipped four strokes off par for 68s to lead their 17 rivals through the first round of play at the Desert Inn Country Club yesterday. Today they held a one-stroke lead over a trio of challengers— ex-amateur champion Gene Littler, Art Wail Jr. and Chandler Harper. Down toward the bottom of the standings was Snead, nestling with five other pros in the slightly embarrassing 73 bracket. Only one contestant, Earl Stewart Jr. of Dallas .who oddly enough was a leader at this stage a year ago, rested lower—a 74.

Appraisal after appraisal was if the one department was the worst it would be the hurling. It has been the opposite in the first 'seven games. The Orioles have been scored on only 18 times, and eight of the runs came in one game. The other six have been pitchers' bat- ties with scores of 0-3, 3-2, 3-1, 0-1, 1-2 and 4-1. Two of Manager Jimmy Dykes, four starters, Bob Turley and Duane Pillette, have gone all the way twice. Joe Coleman went eight and was lifted for a pinchhitter in his only start and he tries again this afternoon at Chicago. Filiette Tops Pillette has won both times, giving up a total of only 11 hits and three runs. Turley and Coleman lost heart-breakers, the former in a 2-1 game in which he gave up only two hits in the ninth inning and Coleman another 1-0 in which he allowed only three. Turley won his first game, 3-1. In all, Oriole pitchers have been hit only 47 times. Don Larsen, the other member of Manager Dykes' "Big Four," has been the victim 'of 16 and twice a loser although he and Turley were labeled by the experts "as the two most likely to shine. What's He Want, Hole in Head?
