With Carroll still fighting for the pennant and the league's top strike out artist, Don Burgess, on the mound, the odds are against the Blue Sox improving their lot .here Wednesday. Potent Carroll Attack Manning also wftl be confronted with a Carroll'offense that has racked up 150 hits, il9 runs and 100 rufis-batted-in on the season. The hustling Merchants also show up well in the extra base department with 25 doubles, six triples and 10 homo runs. Carroll also ranks as a danger* ous club on the base paths as the team total of 34 thefts indicates. Bill Burgess ranks as the most feared hitter on the club. He has boosted his batting average to a lofty .490 and shares the RBI lead with Sam Long at 17. He leads the club in home runs with four and has three doubles and a triple to his credit. Long is in the throes of a bad slump but still has a .293 average. He has three home runs to his credit and has four doubles and a triple for the season. RBI Parade Bob Simpson is hitting at a .219 pace but he has 13 RBI't to his credit along with three doubles, a triple and a home run. Rich Bengfort at .288 and Ray Blankenship at .265 are tied in the RBI race with 10 each. Don Burgess has nine runs-batted-in while Ron Hested has counted eight and Cletus Heinrichs seven in the same category. ' Where Don Burgess excels is on the mound. In 89% innings he has struck out 114 batters. Last Sunday night he set a Central S(ate League record with 17 strike outs. The big hurler has been stingy with walks and has given up only 22 passes. He. has been reached for 81 hits but has restricted opponents to only 41 runs. Golfer Gene Littler was missing from among the first 25 money | winners when he won the 1957 Tournament of Champions event for the third straight time.

MV-Coach Curly Lambeau believes his 1957 College All Stars are every bit as good, as the 1955 team which trimmed Cleveland and that they are capable of whipping the New York Giants Friday night. The two teams clash at Soldier Field. The game will be televised nationally (ABC—8:30 p. m.EST.) Lambeau, not one to make rash predictions, compared his present Stars with the 1955 team which edged ! the Cleveland Browns, 30-27, in a real thriller won on a field goal by Ohio State's Tiny Tad Weed. "I think they're every bit as good as . the 1955 team,^' said Lambeau. "They've shown me they are capable of beating the Giants. Lost Last Year , Lambeau also coached the 1986 All Stars who lost to the Browns, 26-0. Lambeau, founder of the Green Bay Packers and coach through 1950, said the 1956 tear* was good but it did not have enough good men. The Browns that year were "much better," he added. In some quarters, the present All Star squad has been praised BB one of the greatest. However, lining up a mass of great players is not enough to beat the professionals who hold a 14-7 edge in the series with two ties. The Giants are a well knit unit which has gone through a vigorous 'campaign to win a championship. The All Stars are a group fit individuals. Lambeau has surrounded himself with professional assistants in Hunk Anderson, Tony Canadeo, Don Paul, Don Doll and Otto Graham. All are rich in pro experience but Graham is the key man. Graham Tutors Passers Graham has been working with quarterbacks Paul Hornung of Notre Dame. Jim Harris, Oklahoma; Len Dawson, Purdue, and John Brodie of Stanford. The Stars know it is virtually impossible to run and beat the pros so their attack is expected to come through the air. Lambeau is hoping for a cool crisp night and wants no part of rain. "I want a cool crisp night so that we can handle the ball," he said. "We'd like to do some passing." The weather man is ready to comply. No rain is forecast and temperatures along the lakefront are expected to be cool.

Schedule to Help Brooks By CHUCK CAPALDO MILWAUKEE (^Manager Birdie Tebbetts figures if St. Louis, Milwaukee and his Cincinnati Redlegs play each / other to a standstill from here on in, Brooklyn could retain its National League championship. Birdie admitted Tuesday night before the fourth place Reds lost to the Braves, 5-4, that there are some ifs, ands and buts to his theory, but on one point he was emphatic. Western Woes "If a Western club wins it," he said, "it will be a great club .because it will have to eliminate the other two.' Birdie, whose team dropped 5 games behind Milwaukee, pointed out the three Western contenders play each other in nearly half the remaining 50 games. The Braves climbed over St. Louis into the NL lead Tuesday night. Actually, the Braves have a total of 23 dates left with Cincinnati and St. Louis, 12 of them at home, while the Cardinals and the Reds each have a totnl of 21 games left to play against thp Braves or each other. .Bums Have Edge Brooklyn, on the other hand, has only 13 games left with the three Western teams.

Craft Asks Players toif Show Hustle - 'By JOB MOOSRIL CHICAGO W)—Harry Craft, Kansas City's new manager, put the Athletics on the winning track Tuesday night and. .promised mom victories If "the boys continue to hustle." Craft, former Cincinnati outfielder, Tuesday was named manager, succeeding Lou Boudreau. Several hours later, the A's defeated the Chicago White Sox 3-2, behind the pitching of Alex Kellner and reliefer Virgil Trucks and home runs by Woody Held and Billy Martin, a couple of ex-Neiw York Yankees. "All I ask of the boys is hustle for, the 2 or 2% hours it takes to play a game," said Craft. "They were running them out tonight and-played good ball. If they keep it up, we'll win our share of games." Arnold Johnson, owner of the team, said; "It's all up to Craft whether he remains as a club manager after the 1957 season. It stands to reason that if a man. gives a good showing, he'll be around another year. "I remember Harry when he was with Cincinnati," continued Johnson. "He impressed me as a player who never gave up. I have found this to be true since he has been a coach. He'll give the club a definite lift as manager. He has the baseball kno.w-how. He is a Very determined, individual • and there is no doubt in my mind that he will succeed."; .Boudreau has a job waiting for him with the A's. He "has been offered certain responsibilities and duties in the athletic front office," according to Johnson. Boudreau recommended Craft for the job, Johnson added. Bourdreau also gave the A's a pep talk before the game and asked them to "go all out for the new manager." ELKS DINNER K 7-00 P.M.
