L ntnini iiiiinntiii from date barton's KEYBOARDf WEIGHT CHART: Observers at Carroll High School football practices have sometimes remarked that the gridders look deceptively small until you get, a close - up view. Then they don't appear quite so small. The tale of the tape from the scales affirms the fact that this year's Tiger crew is not as small as some had feared. They are not large. There are no 250-pound stand-outs and there are only two who exceed the 180-pound line. But the average weight of 13 top line prospects is 155V4 pounds. The average weight of eight top backfield prospects is 154 pounds. While those weights certainly are not awe-inspiring nor designed for a psychological reaction that would cause opponents to throw in the towel, the fact is that the Tigers are about 10-pounds per player under what would be an ideally sized team for the type of competition they will encounter. Although such a deficit in weight is a serious handicap, it can be overcome'with speed. The lineman who charges faster and hits lower can offset a slight difference in weight. The back who is a shade quicker on the get-away and a step faster than his pursuer can offset the weight factor in that department. It helps to have a bruising ball carrier who has a little weight to throw around. The Tigers have such a player in Dennis Snyder. He stands 5' 11" and weighs 185- pounds. The largest bulwark in the line is expected to be Mike Tan Creti. He stands 6' and weighs 187- pounds. His biggest handicap will be the fact he was sidelined with an injury last year and thus lost out on some valuable game experience. Nobody would be foolish enough to say the Tigers are not in dire need of mote size. Any club can use a little more wieght here or there. But the important thing to remember is that these boys have an opportunity to prove that size doesn't mean everything and that obstacles can be overcome. Remember the squad of eight that won a state track championship? Basilio Dislikes Harlem Sugar Dandy ALEANDRIA BAY Wi - When a fighter says he doesn't like an opponent, you normally can dis count it as ballyhoo. In the case of Carmen Basilio, it sounds like the real thing. "How can you like a guy who does the things that he (Sugar Ray Robinson) has done?" asked Basilio at his training camp in the Thousand Islands. "I'm a fighter. He's a fighter. How can he look down on other fighters?" Basilio, seven years younger than Robinson at 30, says he has a double-pronged motive in beating the Harlem sugar dandy. "He has caused a lot of people a lot of aggravation and somebody has to get even with him. Secondly, he wants all the money so let him take all the licking." Basilio claims he wasn't upset about Robinson's sitdown strike that threatened to call off their Sept. 23 match at Yankee Stadium. "I knew he wasn't going to pull out," he said. "It didn't bother j me.. He wouldn't dare pull out | now. They'd hang him." As for the fight itself, Basilio makes only one prediction. "I'm going to win. It's possible it might go 15 rounds but regardless, Basilio is going to win." ortunity ns ite Sox TODAY'S BASEBALL By The Associated Presi NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B.

L. PCT G.B. New York „ 84 50 Yanks Now Show Signs Of Collapse By ED WILKS The Associated Press Memo .to the Chicago White Sox: Don't just stand there, do something! What more could an American League contender ask than to have the New York Yankees stumbling over every club in sight as late as September? The Yankees suddenly have found their unbeatable bench unfrocked. The only club they've whipped in the past two weeks was the White Sox. In their last 17 games, the champs have lost 10 for a .412 pace surpassed in futility only by the cellar chums, Kansas City and Washington. The White Sox after falling 64 games behind in the Yankee sweep have lost three of six. Kept Door Open The Yankees kept the door open for Chicago again Wednesday night. They blew a 3-0 lead, missed a knockout punch in a ninth-inning raHy and finally lost 7-5 in 11 innings to Boston. That left the champs five games ahead of the idle White Sox. The National League leader had a tough night, too. Milwaukee's lead over second place St. Louis dipped to 74 games as the Cardinals defeated the Braves 5-4 in 12 innings. Third place Brooklyn hung on, belting Philadelphia 12-3. The Dodgers trail by nine. Rookies Shine Outstanding pitching highlighted the other games. Rookie Moe Drabowsky halted the Chicago Cubs' losing string at seven with a two-hit, 1-0 first game victory over Cincinnati's Bud Podbielan, who allowed just three hits. The Redlegs took the nightcap 7-2. Pittsburgh's Bob Friend beat the New York Giants 2-0. In the other AL game, Baltimore bonus rookie Gerry Walker battled Washington's Camilo Pascual through nine scoreless frames, then won 1-0 in the 10th with a four-hitter. Weak Hitter Delivers Pete Daley, a .203 hitter, blooped a bases-loaded single that capped a three-run rally and led to a 5-5 tie for the Red Sox, then stayed in the game and rapped a two-run homer in the 11th. George Susce, 3-0 lifetime against the Yankees, won his seventh. Tommy Byrne, one of three southpaws among four pitchers used by Yank Manager Casey Stengel was the loser for a 4-6 record. Del Ennis singled home two in a four-run Cardinal first and finally nailed it with a sacrifice fly off losing reliever Don McMahon. Herm Wehmeier went all the way and won his eighth. Dodgers Rebound The Dodgers, held to three hits in a 3-2, 12-inning defeat by the Phils Tuesday night, rapped six pitchers for 14 this time. Don Cardwell lost it while ailing Don Newcombe squared his record at 11-11 but had to give way to relief help in the seventh. Ernie Banks' 33rd home run won it in the fifth for the Cubs while Drabowsky retired the first 18 in order. He gave up only a triple to Johnny Temple in the seventh and a pinch-single by Jerry Lynch in the ninth, while walking none and fanning five for his 10th victory. The Redlegs broke out for 13 hits in the, nightcap while Joe Nux- hall won 'his ninth with a nine- hitter. Two doubles by Gene Freese, the first driving in a first-inning run and the second coming ahead of Dick Groat's single, won for Friend, now 11-17. Rookie Mike McCormick lost it for a 3-1 record. FORMER TIGERS ... are shown here as they gird for date with Drake University gridders on Sept. 14 in Des Moines. The former Carroll High players who are members of the Iowa State Teachers College squad are from left Dan Balk, Larry Sabus and Ron Roderick. The adept pass-snag- glng, hard blocking Sabus is one of nine lettermen Coach Buck Starbeck has back this season. He is expected to be a mainstay of the Tutor grid machine. Balk Is making a determined effort to break Into the lineup and Roderick is billed as one of the top candidates for the right tackle berth on the varsity team. When the Teachers College team faces Drake, they will run head-on into a former Tiger teammate, Floyd Wllkens, a sophomore fullback sensation for Drake and a former All-State gridder in his high school days. 5 Reasons Why Braves Fell Apart Last Fall (Another in a series.) By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK iiP) — There were five basic reasons why the Milwaukee Braves lost the pennant last year. 1. A weakness at second base and left field. 2. Lack of knowledge of the fundamentals—bad bunting, poor base running, too frequent throwing to the wrong base. 3. Lack of balance—deficient in lefthanded batting strength and right and lefthanded relief pitch; ing. j 4 A thin bench—inadequate re- i serve strength. i 5. A September slump that af- j fected all the hitters and all the | pitchers with the exception of Warren Spahn. As the Braves head into the final month of the season—to an almost certain pennant—Manager Fred Haney has the satisfaction of knowing that all but the fifth reason for Milwaukee's failure to win last year have been' eliminated. And because of those four correctives, there almost certainly will not be a duplication of last September's swan dive. Master Stroke The master stroke, of course, was the acquisition of Red Schoendienst from the New York Giants on June 15. With nearly 15 seasons behind him, the 34-year-old second baseman has been just what the doctor ordered. The Braves picked up steam and acted like a completely different ball club' almost from the first day he joined them. The Braves still are not adept in bunting and they're last in base stealing. But they've grasped a certain knowledge of baseball fundamentals. Rlghthanded to Death A year ago rival managers righthanded the Braves to death. Rarely did a lefthander, start against them. Once they got past Mathews—and maybe Bill Bruton —the pitchers had no more wo;* ries regarding lefthanded opposition. This year, when the opposition I starts a righthander, Haney coun- j ters with a lefthanded array con| sisting of Mathews, Wes Coving| ton, Frank Torre, Carl Sawatski, Schoendienst,'plus the sensational , newcomer from Wichita, Bob Ha| zle. Against a lefthander, Haney I simply inserts righthanders . Del jCrandall, Nippy Jones and Andy ' Pafko in place of Sawatski, Torre and Hazle. Best Balanced Team The soundness of the bench demonstrated that Milwaukee was j the best balanced team in ,the Na; tional League. When key men like Joe Adcock, ', Bill Bruton and Johnny Logan | were sidelined for long periods, : Torre, Pafko and Felix Mantilla 1 filled in admirably. Jones did a | great job when Torre was . out • briefly and when Pafko was hurt, ; Hazle became a veritable sensa- | tion in right field. "If ever I needed convincing that this was a different club," Haney said, "it was the way. the entire club chipped in when all those guys were out. At one time we had" five "regulars out. If the club was going to fold that was the time. Instead, they pulled in their belts and went to work. That's what makes life worthwhile for a manager." Chicago Boston ...

Manager Marv Jenson said Jim Norris, president of the International Boxing Club, "has promised Gene a shot at the winner of the Basilio-Robinson fight. Sugar Ray Robinson,, the middleweight champion, and Carmen Basilio, the welterweight title holder, fight for Robinson's crown in New York City's Yankee Stadium Sept. 23. Unanimous Judge Del Markham scored the 10-round nationally televised fight 47-41. Judge Bob Yokum had it 50-38 and Referee Ken Shulsen had it 49-42, all for Fullmer. .Fullmer, ranked the No. 1 middleweight contender, sent Vejar sprawling to the canvas, with a right-left-right combination in the third round. Vejar got up at seven but had to take the mandatory nine-count. Gene also had Chico groggy at the end. Press Ended Rally Vejar's best rounds were the sixth and seventh, Fullmer said Chico was beating him to the punch but "Marv told rne to start pressing him" and that ended Vejar's rally. ' ~ Gene's two younger brothers, Jay and Don, also appeared on the card. And both scored knockouts. - • Ropes mao> from the hahr of «ows.or horses are called roecates. Vail Girls Win Own Softball Tournament VAIL — The rain-delayed final game of the girls softball tournament here was won Wednesday night by Vail with a 6-5 victory over Schaller. The game originally scheduled on last Sunday was rained out after Battle Creek had taken a consolation victory over Lake View. ,Archbold Stadium at Syracuse J University is the oldest oval con- 1 crete stadium in the nation Jay Coogan Says Giants Are Stymied NEW YORK WV-The announced move of the New York Giants to San Francisco was tossed around again Wednesday. While the team was busy at Pittsburgh, a banker, a landlord, a mayor and a lawyer provided the action. But as of today, the official decision still stood. The Giants will play their National League,baseball games in San Francisco starting in 1958, unless an unforseen barrier develops. Here's how Wednesday's play went: Jay Coogan. the man to whom Giants' president Horace Stoneham pays the rent, said he had been advised that the deal for the transfer of the club "cannot come to fruition," as it is presently set up. Claim Financial Burden Coogan. said he was relaying the • "fnr<"^Hon from an unidentified San Francisco banker. Coogan ^..-.c\i uie oanker as saying the deal could not possibly be completed because it would place too much of a financial burden on the taxpayers of the city. In San Francisco, Mayor r~-,-r»o r hr' c tipher said "There is no question in our minds what- me validity of this city's plans to finance a stadium for the Giants. I invite anyone who has any doubts about it to comp 1 —and say so." Attorney Backs Mayor Ed b . the Giants' attorney, backed up the mayor. "The Giants will be in San Francisco next year," he said. Stoneham could not be reached for comment, but Feeley confirmed he had talked with .Coogan several times in the past month. Feeley said Coogan had told him of the information from the banker, but Feeley said he had the assurance of Mayor Christopher that all legal means were being taken to affect the move. Coogan, who says he's a Giant fan, said he still believes the club might wind up in New York.
