Favor Pros By TO Over Collegians •• By TED SMTTS \$flCAG6 m - Tonight's 24th annual All-Star Football Game pits the slashing running attack of the New York Giants against the untested passing offense of the col* legians. The Giants. National Football League champions, are favored over the All-Stars by 10 points in the season's first big gridiron encounter. A crowd of 75,000 or more is expected to pour into Soldier Field. The game will be televised by ABC at 8:30 p.m., EST. Pin Hopes on Pass This is an enthusiastic bunch of collegians who have been working out under Coach Curly Lambeau. Never has an All-Star squad boasted such top-flight passers as John Brodie of Stanford, Lennie Dawson of Purdue, Jim Harris of Oklahoma and Paul Hornung of Notre Dame. Since the Giants line is big and tough — and led the NFL defensively last season — it seems only logical for the collegians to pin all their hopes on passing. The All-Stars also have some excellent pass catchers fn Ron Kramer and Tom Maentz of Michigan, Brad Bomba of Indiana and Lamar Lundy of Purdue. Breakaway Runners To back up the passing threat the college team has some fine breakaway runners in Jim Brown of Syracuse, Tommy McDonald of Oklahoma, Jon Arnett of Southern California and Clarence Peaks of Michigan State. It is this strong collection of offensive talent that prevents the Giants from being overwhelming favorites. Conceivably, if the All- Stars could score early on a pass or a long run, they might be able to go on and upset the big pro champions. Not Enough Time . Even the experts who concede the great potential of the All- Stars, all but one of whom will go on to play professional football this fall, admit timo has been too short to weld the individual stars into a smooth running team. - The Giants, on the other hand, have lost only Rosy Grier at •tackle out of their great 1956 team that swept to the NFL crown by beating the Chicago Bears 47-7 In the championship game.

By ED WILKS The Associated Press What are those other National League contenders trying to do, lure the Milwaukee Braves into a false feeling of security? Any way you look at it, the scramble suddenly has opened up and the Braves are on top with a "whopping" 2%-game lead—their largest of the season. They made it as Cincinnati rolled over again, 5-3 Thursday and the seventh- place Chicago Cubs bopped the second-place St. Louis Cardinals 4-S for a three-game sweep. Third-place Brooklyn is five games back, skidding with a 12-3 clobbering from the New York Giants. Cincinnati and Philadelphia now are tied for fourth, seven games behind, after the Phillies defeated Pittsburgh 8-3 while the Redlegs lost for the 11th time in 12 games with Milwaukee this season. St. Louis Date ' If this is the breakup in the NL log jam, the Braves should know by-••'Sunday night—after a three- game set at St. Louis. In the American League, Washington made it two in a row over New York 6-1 and trimmed the Yankees' lead to five games as Chicago's. second-place White Sox defeated Kansas City 7-4. Baltimore regained fifth place from Detroit by defeating Boston 3-1 while the Tigers lost to Cleveland 3-1. Trade Looks Good Red Schoendienst, the second baseman who was supposed to hava brought the Braves the pennant along with his bat and glove when -the Giants traded him to Milwaukee June 15, got the job done Thursday. He lined a two- run single In the eighth, breaking a 3-3 tie and bringing Lew Burdette his 10th victory. ExArave George Crowe hammered his 24th home run and Frank Robinson swatted his 18th in the eighth to junk a 3-1 Milwaukee lead. Reliever Raul Sanchez lost it, loading the bases with two walks and a hit batsman ahead of S^hoendienst's hit. Mitel) Falters The Cubs won six in a row for the first, time since 1955 with a two-run seventh against southpaw Wilmer Mizell that cracked a two- all tie. Singles by Moe Drabowsky, the young right-hander who won his eighth, and Bobby Adams brought in the runs. Dave Hill man blanked the Cards after relieving Drabowsky when a walk and two singles gave the Cards a run in the eighth. Del Ennis had a two-run homer for St. Louis while Stan Musial had two singles and regained the bat lead at .334. The Giants completed a sweep of the last three games in the four-game set with the Dodgers by scoring four, runs in the first against ex-pal Sal Maglie. They had 14.hits in all, counting home runs by Willie Mays (26) and Hank Sauer (16). Ruben Gomez won his 12th with a seven-hit job. Philadelphia gave Curt Simmons a 6-t lead with .three rune Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Friday, Aug. 9,. 1957 in the sixth, two on Gran Hamner's home run, but the southpaw needed relief help in the ninth to win his 11th. Bob Miller nailed it, after Bob Skinner's home run triggered a three-run Pirate rally. Vern Law lost It. Loses Shutout Russ Kemmerer. had given the Yankees only five singles and led 6-0 going into the ninth. Then a single, walk and Enos Slaughter's double saved New York from what would have been its second shutout of the year. Art Ditmar lost it. Billy Pierce, the AL's only 15- game winner, gave way to Gerry Staley when the.A's scored one in the-'fourth and' cut Chicago's lead to 6-4. Staley blanked 'em on five hits the rest'of the ,way for a 3-0 record. Earl T6rgeson, 3-for-4, drove in five, runs and hit a pair of homers—the first, a three-run shot In a five-run third against winless Rip Coleman. Billy O'pell gave up Dick Ger- nert'a home run in the seventh and needed relief help because of a sore arm, but joined Pierce, Cleveland's Don Mossi and Yankee Bobby Sharitz as the only left handers to beat Boston this year. Tito Francona's RBI triple capped a two-run third that clinched it for the Orioles against Mike Fornieles. Ted Williams had two of Boston's six hits, hiking his bat mark to .390. SET PACT DEADLINE CHICAGO UR -Crelghton Miller, attorney for the National Football League Players Assn., has given NFL Commissioner Bert Bell until Aug. 18 to sign an agreement recognizing the association as the players' bargaining agent. Miller, in Chicago for the Allstar game, met with Bell Thursday night and gave him a written acceptance agreement. Miller, the former Notre Dame football great, also asked the NFL to grant the players a uniform $9 per day meal allowance and a $12 daily allowance for training camp expenses. The inclusion of an injury clause in the player contracts was also requested by the attorney for the group. Loop Standings W L Pet.

James Johnson, about 32, was arrested as he attempted to run from the baseball park. He was held without charge. The manager, J. C. Dunn, was hit in the leg and chest. His condition was not believed serious. Police Capt. Vern Strother said the incident apparently stemmed from an argument between the Negro porter and some members of the Ardmore club early Thursday morning. Strother said Johnson and three members of the Ardmore club were good-naturedly "rough-housing" when tempers flared. Strother said two of tho Ardmore players held Johnson as another player slugged Johngor in the jaw. Police said Johnson opened fire' as Dunn returned to the Ardmore dugout after scoring a run in the second inning. The game was postponed. Defends Aid For Players By GEORGE LAZARUS CHICAGO UP)—Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson, Big Ten commissioner, today called the conference's controversial new financial aid plan "an effective answer to the problem of regulating aid to athletes which has plagued colleges for so many years. "There was a sharp difference within the conference regarding the program," Wilson told a meeting of the Football Writers Assn. of America. But, the Big Ten administrator, who recently suspended Indiana coach Phil Dickens for a violation of the code, said: Growing Acceptance "There definitely is a growing acceptance and approval of the plan among our people, as administrators and.coaches have had a chance' to see it in operation." The new western conference financial code was adopted in May by a 6-4 vote from faculty representatives. The Big Ten plan now provides that member schools can give financial assistance to athletes up to the cost of room, board, tuition, and books on the basis of superior scholarship or demonstrated need. 911 Aid Offers Wilson today told the writers group a total of 911 tenders of aid on the basis of either factor have been given 776 boys by the conference. One university reported 97 of its tenders were accepted. The commissioner said 691 prospective athletes accepted the tender, an 89 per cent acceptance reply; One conference school offered a high of 139 tenders, said Wilson. The low tender acceptance reply was- 47 for another school Goon Rapids Stops Churdan, \AA MS CX)NDIT<ONING-TeMPEW,WWS MADE TO OTOCT-AT NEW LOW COST.

Bob Behrens took over the pitching chores in the eighth and preserved Ibach's eighth straight league triumph this year and his 23rd consecutive pitching victory over the past two years. Churdan averted a shutout when the Indies counted their lone run in the ninth. Art Gtite singled. Duane- Hartsler and Gayle Swansen both fanned. Then Don Wallace tripled to score Gute. Wallace accounted for the only hit off Ibach when he singled in the third inning. Coon Rapids opened the scoring in the second when Dale McCarty drew the first oi five consecutive bases on balls. Jerry Doran struck out and Marvin Streams did likewise. McCarty stole second. Charles Taylor walked and then Ibach singled to send McCarty home. Broke Game Open In the fifth, Coon Rapids broke the game open with four big runs. Mike Blanchard singled Dale Tryon fanned. McCarty walked. Doran grounded through short for a hit. Streams walked tc force Blanchard acrosB. Taylor fanned. Ibach singled to score a pair Streams then counted the fourth tally in the inning when he scored on a wild pitch. Five more Coon Rapids runs crossed the plate in the sixth. Dick Textor, who caught because Ron Mau was incapacitated by the flu, led off by striking out. Blanchard grounded to short and an error let him live. Tryon singled. McCarty walked .Blanchard scored on a wild pitch. Doran grounded to the pitcher, Swansen who had relieved Wallace in the third, and Swansen mistakenly threw to the plate where there was no force. Catcher Bob Vogel then threw to first in an attempt to get the runner and over' threw the first baseman. That al lowed Tryon to score. Change Pitchers At this juncture, Wallace replaced Swansen on the mound. Streams struck out but Taylor doubled to drive in two runs. Ibach walked and on two wild pitches Taylor moved from second to third and from third to home Rich Monthei singled, but Ibach was thrown out at the plate to end the inning. Another Coon* Rapids uprising netted four runs in the seventh. Textor was safe on an error and went to second on a wild pitch. Blanchard doubled to score Textor. Tryon was safe on an error and later stole second McCarty walk ed again. Then a pickoff attempt at third by the catcher resulted in the ball being" thrown into left field where still another error was committed and two more runs scored.

A dispatch out of Manning points up the confusion surrounding the wind-up of the Central State League season. The news story from Manning reads: "Manning's Blue Sox will. end their current season of baseball as first year members of the Central State League with two home games. Coon Rapids' will play at Manning on Aug. 11; Audubon on Aug. 14. "Preceding the final game, the high school concert band will give a concert in the City Park, beginning at 7:30 p.m. and will play for flag-raising ceremonies at the ball park. The Band Mothers' organization will serve a lunch at the City Park." So that's what is planned, according to dispatches forwarded from the Daily Times Herald correspondent in Manning. Comes now the big question. What happened to the ralned-out game with Carroll on July 21? When Manning was In Carroll on Wednesday night, club officials were insistent that an agreement had been reached with the Carroll Athletic Association, sponsors of the Carroll Merchants, to play the ralned-out game on Aug, 18. This was protested by Carroll players because many have plans to take belated vacations at that time and will not be available. For example, Manager Don Burgess has accepted a coaching position at Milford, near Spencer, and plans to move from Glidden on Aug. 15, which is the day following the day when Carroll's season officially ends on Aug.s 14 with Coon Rapids here. Carroll players were reminded by Manning that a forfeiture of money is' in line if the club does not show up for the game on Aug. 18. That has resulted in plans to gather together as many of the regulars as possible and augment their ranks with high school players. The worst of the matter is that there Is a possibility.Coon Rapids might drop their next three games and If Carroll should win the next two, then that Manning game would vitally affect the standings. Where this will lead is anybody's guess. If Carroll cannot field the regulars for the belated game, Manning fans will not feel disposed to turning out in record numbers. On the other hand, there were no cash refunds made at the gate on July 21 when rain postponed the scheduled game before it ever got underway. The fans who were there are entitled to something they already have paid for. But still we get back to this confusing information that says the last two home, games in Manning will be with Coon Rapids and with Audubon and nary a word is said about the make-up of the game with Carroll. * * * EXPERT BADGE: ROTC Cadet Lyle H. Frahm, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Frahm of Manning, has been awarded the Expert badge for rifle marksmanship at the Artillery ROTC summer camp at Fort Sill, Okla. The Expert badge is given to individuals who show outstanding proficiency in the firing of the Ml rifle. Perfect score on the record firing course is 250 points. The expert rifleman must fire 212 points or above.

NEW YORK IB — It begins to look as though all the New York Giants have to do to move their National League baseball franchise to San Francisco is pack their bags. President Horace Stoneham, who has said for a month or so he would move as soon as he received a "satisfactory proposition," announced Thursday he has received "a very firm and fair offer" from Mayor Christopher of San Francisco. Formal Offer All that remains, apparently, is a formal presentatipn of the San Francisco offer before the club's board of directors, which Stoneham added he would do "within the next 10 days" While no Giant official revealed any details of the San Francisco bid, Stoneham and Vice President Chub Feeney looked happy after emerging from a long conference over the offer Thursday. Package Deal The San Francisco package reportedly calls for: 1. City construction of a 45,000- capacity stadium, 2. A rental fee figured at 7 per cent of gross attendance each year; 3. Giants' control ot concessions; 4. City control of parking facilities. A suitable stadium and agreeable rental fee are the "musts" the Giants have been looking for in any offer. Fills Bill The San Francisco bid fills the bill, and apparently junks hopes by Minneapolis officials of luring the Giants there. A shift to San Francisco by next season—already approved by the National League—would find the Giants playing in Seals Stadium until the city stadium is completed. The Seals Stadium, with a capacity of 22,000 would be vacated by the Pacific Coast league once the Giants had settled "damages" with the minor league for invasion of its territory. HockeyTeam Holdings By Norris Told WASHINGTON wv -Rep. Cellar. (D-NY) says sports promoter'' James D. Norris holdings In more than one team of the National Hockey League might make the public suspicious "of possible untoward situations." ' And Rep. Keating (R-NY) echoed that feeling Thursday, saying it seemed the arrangement could" create in the public mind the "possibility of agreements" that might not be good Closing Session The remarks came at the closing session of a House subcommittee, headed by Celler, which haj been studying the applicability of antitrust laws to professional team sports. Norris told the group he and his family had an interest in three hockey teams. C. S. Campbell, president of the league, said there was no rule violation, and that the league's governors had approved the plan. Hockey Holdings Norris testified (1) that he and Arthur M Wirt* hold a little less than 40 per cent of the stock of Madison Square Garden Corp., which operates the New York Rangers hockey team; (2) that he and Wirtz own the Chicago Black- hawks; and (3) that his half brother and half sisters own more than 90 per cent of the Detroit Olympia Stadium and the Redwings team. Norris said the ownership plan was well known. Campbell said the league governors had urged Norris to acquire the Blackhawka in the interest of the league. Minneapolis basketball players dropped 2,195 free throws , last season to lead teams in the National Baseball Assn. in foul shooting. Penn State's Bill Hess set a school record when he scored nine goals "In lacrosse against Penn. He scored 49 goals during the 1957 season, topping his 1958 mark by eight goals. Favor Hart Over Akins CLEVELAND m - Although third-ranked Virgil Akins Is six notches above Sugar Hart in the most recent Ring Magazine welterweight ratings bettors have made Hart a 7-5 favorite for their televised bout tonight in Cleveland's Public Hall Matchmaker Larry Atkins thinks the oddsmakers are going against the experts because of Hart's frequent and impressive TV battles. Tonight's 10-round bout will be on NBC .radio-TV at 9 p.m., EST. "Sugar was pleased to hear that he's been made favorite," said the 21-year-old Philadelphia boxer's manager, Mart> Stein. "And I'm so optimistic myself that I figure he^'s only two or three fights away from the welterweight title." Both Hart and Akins are hoping a victory tonight will put them in the scramble if Carmen Basilio vacates the title next month with a victory over middleweight champion Sugar Ray Robinson. The 20-year-old Akins. from St. Louis, has won 42 of 59 professional bouts, 23 of them by knockouts. Hart, who has lost only two of 24 fights, has rung up 19 knockouts. ovee &4i ooo, ooo pan/Area/ owveo ooe HIGHWAYS rooAV,., MOGG THAA/ (SASdiiAje AND eve flovser/seaG WGGT&O *3%BS7,000 tOOAHSf IN w&b-Mo&snukvei/B* e&Fome IN w/stv^r/ Moee OAIUY RGB SOLD tN TU£"U<*.
