Clear Field For Foes in Orange Bowl MIAMI, Fla. UPV -Any top-notch college team can be invited to play in the 1959 Orange Bowl football game and everyone seems happy about it—even the Atlantic Coast Conference, which was cut loose to make room. The Orange Bowl Committee voted Monday ne» to renew its contract with the ACC. Atlantic Coast Conference teams have met Big Eight conference champions in Orange Bowl New Year's Day games since 1954 under agreements that expire with the 1958 clash. Book Big Eight The bowl will continue to book Big Eight championship teams, but will be free to pick the opposing eleven from any section of the Ration. Major radio and television networks, which have paid the bowl increasing sums for broadcast rights, had urged the committee to widen its field of choices. Ne gotiations currently are under way with NBC and CBS. Waive Rule Joe H. Adams, president of the bowl committee, said the Big Eight had agreed to waive for 1959—the bowl's 25th anniversary —its rule that no Big Eight titlist can play In two successive bowl games. Under foreseeable conditions, that probably would bring the Big Sight's powerhouse, Okla homa, to the Orange. Bowl both in 1958 and 1959. The latter year, the committee could pick the Big Eight team's foe from the cream of college football regardless of section. "We are happy about this," Adams said- Van C. Kussrow headed a com mittee panel that studied means of improving the Orange Bowl game and recommended Mon day's action by the full committee. Wide Choice "With a Big Eight champion as the host team," said Kussrow, "we have a wide choice from schools in the state, the Southeastern and Atlantic Coast conferences, Army, Navy or an outstanding Eastern team." Stuart Patterson, heading Committee negotiations on broadcast rights, was confident the new setup will attract even more money than the $275,000 paid annually under the current contract. Reaves Peters, director of the Big Eight Conference, said at Kansas City "There will be a meeting between the Orange Bowl Committee and one from our conference to work out the details. We don't anticipate any difficulties with the arrangement." He said faculty representatives must approve it DOUBLEDEALERS ... In Lindy, left, and Von McDanlel, the St. Louis Cardinals have the counterparts of the brothers Dean, Dizzy and Paul, of the mld>30's. Again the Red Birds fly high. 'Wish I Could Do It All Over/ Joe McCarthy Says By JACK HAND COOPERSTOWN, N. Y. UB- Looking back over 43 years of baseball stretching from Wilmington, Del., to a niche in the Hall of Fame, Joe McCarthy summed up his thoughts in a few brief words. "Gee, I wish I could do it all over again." Sentiment brought tears to the eyes of Samuel (Wahoo Sam) Crawford as the 77-year-old former outfielder also was formally inducted - into Baseball's Hall of Fame Monday in this historic village. "I've come a long way to this day," he started. "I want to thank all my friends. I had a speech to make but I don't believe I can go through with it." The two new members were officially received by Commissioner Ford Frick on a wooden platform that had been built under the shade trees in front of the Hall of Fame and baseball museum. The shirt-sleeved crowd jammed main from curb to curb and overflowed onto the steps 0 fthe post office. All eyes were trained on the platform where McCarthy and Crawford were being honored. Many To Thank "When a player reaches the Hall of Fame," said McCarthy, "he doesn't have too many to thank.'For the most part, he did it on his own. But a manager has so many people to thank." Marse Joe, who won eight pennants with the New York Yankees and one with the Chicago Cubs and never finished worse than fourth in 24 years as a manager, named them all. He thanked the owners, coaches, trainers, writers, umpires and players. "Most responsible of all for my being here are the great players," said McCarthy. "And God knows, I had my share of the good ones. I won't try to list them all because I would not want to forget and leave somebody out." Mixed Emotions Glancing toward Mrs. Lou Gehrig, widow of his former first baseman, McCarthy said, "seeing you brings back many a sad memory, but also a lot of happy ones." McCarthy turned to Cal Hubbard, American League umpire supervisor, and thanked his profession. When the crowd laughed, Marse Joe flashed a bit of his Irish wit and said "not that they ever give you the best of it." The 70-year-old "gentleman farmer" from East Amherst, N.Y., also pointed out the newsman who first suggested he might be a manager. "In 1912, at Wilkes-Barre, Tom Brislin wrote a story saying I might make a manager," said McCarthy. "Bill Clymer gave me the job after he read the story." Can They Hong On?— National By ED WTLRS - , The Associated Press . Will the Braves be able to hold the lead despite injuries? Can the Cardinals win at homo? Will the Dodgers, loadod , with walking wounded, be able to hold their own in the West? Can the Redlegs avoid another long slump? Will the Phillies hang on? Even Helen Trent never had It as rough as the five clubs in on that soap opera the National League is staging as a pennant race these days. And after the St. Louis Cardinals were rapped 13-4 by the Chicago White Sox in Monday's Hall of Fame game, the pennant pursuers get back to business today with the Western teams at home to the East. In the AL—where the only real question is "If the Yankees are so great, why aren't they playing .TOO ball?"—first-place New York gets another chance to wrap it up early,' returning home with a AM- game lead for a three-game set with the second-place White Sox. Braves Got Hot Milwaukee's Braves, who left home July l with a half-game lead, slipped to third and three games behind only to get hot again and win nine of the last 13, are back home again for a 16- game stay. They open tonight with a one-game lead against Philadelphia, with the Phillies in fifth, 3tt games behind, after leading the-j league by half a game a week ago. The Dodgers, hottest club in the race at the moment with a 10-2 record that has hoisted them from fifth, five games behind,. to second, open the trip at St. Louis. The Cards, blowing a three-game Times Herald, Carroll, tows Tuesday, July 23, 1957 lead with a 4-7 trip through the East, are third, 1V4 games back, as they open a, 21-game stand at home—where they're only 202-20 for the season. Redlegs Fourth Cincinnati, at home for a 18- game stay, is fourth, two games behind, as it opens against seventh-place Pittsburgh 1 0 n i gli t. New York's sixth-place Giants, who tore the West apart with'a 10-5 record on their last trip, are at Chicago for a day game with the last-place Cubs. In other AL games, it's Kansas City at Boston, Cleveland at Washington and Detroit at Baltimore. All are night games. Braves' Manager Fred Haney has made the best of a makeshift lineup to overcome injuries to Joe Adcock, Hank Aaron, Felix Mantilla and Billy Brutoh. Aalllng Dodgers Brooklyn's bandage boys ire Duke Snider (brace on left knee), Elmer Valo (pulled groin muscle), Carl Furillo (stiff shoulder), Don Newcombe (sore finger) and John Roseboro (broken finger). Haney named Bob Buhl (10-6) as his probable starting pitcher against [he Phillies' Jack Sanford (12-3) or Ourt Simmons (9-5). Brooklyn's Johnny Podres (7-3) goes 1 against the Cards' Sam Jones (8-3).' The 'Redlegs will try Johnny Klippsteinr: (4-9), against Pittsburgh's V.ern Law (6-4). It's southpaw Johnny Antonelli Opera (9-9) for the Giants against the Cubs' Diek Dr'ott (8-8). .. Keegan Seeks 7th The Yankees, who have lost only eight games since June 13,-go with Don Larsen (5-2) against the White Sox and Bob Keegan (84) who has won six in a row. Boston, shut out. by Chicago la the last'two games of the western trip, is third, 12tt games back, going into the game with Kansas City. It's Frank Sullivan (8-«) for the Red Sox against Virgil Trucks (7-3). At Washington, the Indians, fourth and 13ft games behind, send Stan Pitula (2-2) against Chuck Stobbs (3-13, with two straight over Cleveland), and the last place Nats. For Detroit, fifth and 15 games shy, it's Billy Hoeft (2-5) against Billy O'Dell (1-3) and the Orioles, 16 games back and in sixth place. tiHIIMsllllllllllllli from dale barton's t {KEYBOARD lin 1 num* SUMMER SEASON: .

Jim Short hurled six and one- third innings of no-hit ball before yielding a single to Jensen in the seventh. The spoiler stole second and went to third on a wild pitch.

The game will be played Tuesday at 8 p.m. When Monday's scheduled game at Breda was postponed by the weather, a change in site became necessary becausp the Breda Eagles had a prior date on the diamond with the Manning Blue Sox. * * * FISH STORY: The most unusual fish story to cross this desk this summer was f turned in by Robert S. Bruner, county attorney. John Bruner, age 12, departed from customary fishing methods last week at Lake Okoboji. He fished from an inner tube with a dip net and actually caught a three and one-half pound small mouth bass. • * * TEAM ADVANCES: Roger Buxton, of Breda, pitched the Sac County Little Leaguers past Remsen on a two-hit, 14-0, decision Monday a* Sac City.

Courchesne, a good journeyman lightweight, took a-spasm between the eighth and ninth rounds of his scheduled 10 with Bobby Bell Monday night at St. Nicholas Arena and scared the living daylights out of his seconds and the TV spectators who saw the bout in some sections of the country. Rule Out Trip "Of course, the trip to South America is out," said Courchesne's manager, Pat Bartlett. "He was supposed to fight in Caracas. There's nothing wrong with him, but we just want to be careful." Courchesne, who had a 50-8-2 record, was charged with a knockout at the hands of Bell when he failed to answer the bell for the ninth round. According to the New York State Athletic Commission rules, it goes in the books as an eighth-round kayo. Barlett was backed by Dr. Samuel Swetnick, the physician in attendance. Local baseball fans will have an opportunity to see some of the finest female stars in baseball here Tuesday night when the All American girls play the Carroll Merchants at Merchants Park in an 8:15 p.m. game. The visiting club is literally loaded with stars and the girls play regular baseball with no feminine concession to the rules. The lone departure from a normal game is that the girls exchange batteries with their opponents. / 34 State Tour Stars who have played with the team in 34 states during the past two-and-one-half seasons include Betty Weaver who throws a baseball 300 feet. Joan Berger, another star, throws two baseballs to two receivers at one time. Dolores Lee, pint-sized third baseman and pitcher, can duplicate that feat. Control Pitcher Maxine Kline, veteran pitcher, is one of the finest control pitchers in the game. She can throw strikes all day long. In fact, she has been known to tfirow strikes from second base. One of the most sensational fielders in baseball is, Dottie Schroeder. She delights in making one handed plays on ground balls and likes to tag out runners. One of the most versatile members of the team is Katie Horstman. She plays any position on the field and is equally at home in any one of nine different spots. ? The team roster includes 11 .girls and five of them are pitchers. With the exception of Eulah Miller, 20, and Margie Holland, 18, the girls all have had several years of training under former major leaguers. Miller joined the All - Americans from a semi-pro team managed by her father in Mississippi and Holland came up from the semi-pro ranks from her home town of Kane, Pennsylvania. LEASE COURT SPACE GLENWOOD m -The Mills County board of supervisors have leased part of the Glenwood armory as a temporary location for district court here. Five district judges had recommended that the supervisors find a safer place for holding court than in- the 100-year- old courthouse. Aaron Is Best Clutch Hitter NEW YORK <*>-Who is major league baseball's best clutch hitter? As near as can be determined, he's Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee Braves. The 23-year-old Braves' slugger is the leader in game-winning blows—a system of rating the top clutch hitters devised by The Associated Press." Aaron has produced the pivotal hit in seven games this season. Credit for a game-winning blow is |iyen to each batter who puts his team ahead to stay in the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth or an extra inning. Don Hoak of the Cincinnati Red- legs is second to Aaron in the National League with six game•winners. Bill Skowron, New York; Yankee first baseman, paces the American League with five. Gino Cimoli of Brooklyn, Del Ennis of the St. Louis Cardinals and Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs each has five game-winning blows. Trailing Skowron in the Ameri-, can league with four are Mickey j Mantle and Yogi Berra of the Yankees, Charley Maxwell of De-; troit, Jackie Jensen of Boston, Larry Doby of tho Chicago White Sox, Al Smith and Bobby Avila of Cleveland and Gus Zernial of Kansas City. Vern Mikkelsen of the Minneapolis Lakers was a rough customer in the National Basketball Assn. last season. He committed 312 personal fouls and was disqualified from 18 league games.

Hirsch Eyes Calmer Life By BOB MYERS HOLLYWOOD (^-Football is in an era of defense, Elroy (Crazy- legs) Hirsch was saying in mournful tones when the conversation suddenly switched to the movies. Hirsch, who leads a double, even triple life as a star in football, in pictures and .as the proprietor of a San Fernando Valley restaurant, observed: "Give me one big break in pictures and I'd probably give'up football. , "It's been great to me, but after 12 years'ini pro ball you don't need 13 to prove you can play it." Hero' and Star . ' Movie fans around the country may not be too familiar with Cra- zylegs, the grid hero, and football fans may be in the same boat regarding" Elroy Hirsch, movie star. Briefly, this 6-foot-2 195-pounder one of the most explosive runners and pass receivers in the game, checks in this month for his ninth season with the Los Angeles Rams. It will be his 13th year in pro ball and his 19th in the game, dating back to high school days in Wausau, Wis Use Fishing As Lure For Vacatio n e r s By D*ION HENDERSON The Associated Press Picture a fine figure of a fish- solid gold, with dollar signs for scales. That's the way officials of fashionable watering-places are beginning to regard their aquatic resources, and small wonder. California and Florida long have recognized this, ?o have the north- woods states and Canada. Now Bermuda has , discovered its rather special mid-Atlantic game fishery can be a tourist asset, too. Information Bureau Bermuda recently has established an official Fishing Information Bureau (FIB. are the initials, which is a distressing coincidence). "Primary purpose of the bureau." a statement says, "will be to advise visiting anglers as to how and where to fish in the waters surrounding the island. All the latest angling literature, including special maps of reef areas for light tackle fishing, are available." Proved Contention As part of the development program, Bermuda has retained old pro Joe Brooks, long known to veteran fishermen from Miami to Minneapolis, as director of game fishing. To sport • his contention that you might hook a record fish of one kind or another almost any time. Joe promptly went out and did just that—a 55 pound wahoo on a 10-pound test line. The fish was confirmed this month as a world record in the 12-pound test line class. In another helpful, program, the Bermuda Game Fishing Guides Assn. has lined up a dozen charter boats, along with several reef outfits, and has worked out a uniform charter cost covering all tackle, bait and equipment. Costs run up to about $60 for a nine- hour charter of one of the .big boats. A two-passenger reef boat with guide can be had for $25 for a full day. Pompano can be had from the Beach.
