Jerry H&cli ~ Sparkles in Beaver Camp STORM LAJKE, la. - Opponents will get >little comfort from the fact, but senior Jerry Ibach, Buena Vista's all-Iowa conference back and leading scorer in the league-^ast* year, is running better than .ever this fall. IbacH sparkled in a long scrimmage session Saturday afternoon. The 180-pound halfback from Bayard staged several slashing runs that caused, veteran railbirds at the Beaver camp to express guarded opinions that they can't remember .when he looked better. Among the Best Among the best athletes ever to wear the Navy Blue and Gold, Ibach enters his last year college grid season with a yardage-gained record of 2,154 yards in three years. During this time he has scored 20 touchdowns and passed for an additional 10. Due in part to Ibach's performance in the scrimmage and in part to an emphasis on offense during the first week of drills, Coach Dean Laun indicated Monday that the accent this week will be on defense. With the start of freshman orientation Monday, drills.from now on will be held but elite a day rather than the two-a-day variety followed last week. In announcing this week's practice schedule, Laun said a short workout will be held Thursday evening at 8 under the lights. Scrimmage Saturday Next.full-scale scrimmage, is set for. Saturday morning. . - . In • addition to, Ibach, players drawing praise from their performances in Saturday's scrimmage included lettermen backs Lanny Grigsby, sophomore,. Aurelia, and Keith Bunting, '•junior, Sac City; letterman guard„ Ron Mau, junior, Early, and freshman tackles Robert Sampson of Eagle Grove and Terry Conrad of Fonda and freshman end Dick Collins of Fort Dodge.

Bargain Basement YieWs Insurance NEW YORK W-The New York Yankees again have dipped into the National League bargain basement and have come up with oiit -i field 1 insurance as they start their final home stand today. The Yankees bought slick-fielding, weak-hitting Bobby Del Greco 24, from the Chicago Cubs Monday. Bobby, a speedy centerfield- er, was expected to spell' Mickey Mantle, crippled in the last week with painful shin splints. Del Greco broke in with Pittsburgh, in 1952 when he was 19 The first week he hit .500. He finished the season with a .237 average," then was returned to the minors. The Pirates traded him to St. Louis last year for outfielder Bill'Virdon. The Cardinals sent him to the Cubs. He played 123 games this season for the Montreal Royals of the International .League where he hit .276. His' major league batting average for 216 games before 1957 was .216. may get there with too little, but not too late. Ara Parseghian, who made a smashing Big Ten coaching debut last season by whipping the Wildcats into something more than a throw-rug, still is plagued by a lack of personnel, What's more, sophomore quarterbacks entirely will be in charge of the 'Cats, who last fall accomplished a minor miracle by clawing to a 4-4-1 record and • a sixth • place Big Ten mark of 3-31. Bleak Record Northwestern had won only three of 26 conference games in four previous seasons. This fall, Parseghian must go with a completely inexperienced quarterback. That will be either John Talley of Delaware, Ohio, or Chip Holcomb, son of Athletic Director Stu Holcomb. Chances are . Talley . and Holcomb will alternate as.signal callers at first, with still another sophomore Bert Fredrick of Sycamore, 111., stepping in for defensive purposes. Passing Needed If Talley and Holcomb measure up to their prep records as parsers, it would be a tremendous asset to a Wildcat attack which features two great ball carriers, the amazing 5 feet, 4% Bob Mc Keiver and fleet Wilmer Fowler, Big Ten spring champion. Last fall, Northwestern had the most inept passing attack in the Big Ten, if not in the nation. Still Mc Keiver, who led the team in rushing, pass catching, scoring, kickoff returns and punting, and flashy Fowler, roamed far and wide. 27 Sophomores Actually, this will be more of a rebuilding year for Parseghian than last year when he made the most of what material he inherited. This fall, the fiery, young coach has 27 sophomores of his own choosing. On these newcomers will depend whether the Wildcats will have staying power in the rugged Big Ten competition. Sophomores will compose almost the entire second team "We'll be a little better this year," said Parseghian, "but this year everybody will be waiting for us. We aren't going to catch anybody by surprise. Spirit is great, but a good fresh lineman or ball carrier late in the game is better." Timet Herald, earrvff, lewt Tuesday, Sept. 10, 1957 EASY ON EYES ... The eyes of Texas are u p o n, among numerous other stickout players, Bobby Bryant, the Longhorns' pass-snatching right end. (Next: Michigan State) Only six American League batsmen have had a season mark of .400 or above. Only two National Leaguers have turned the trick. Johnny Saxton was born on.the Fourth of July in 1930 at Newark, N. J. Expect Miteff To Try for KO DENVER iffi — Swift-punching Alex Miteff, rising heavyweight §tar from Argentina, is expected to fire early and often tonight in a bid for a quick knockout of Johnny Holman, Chicago veteran. The undefeated, 22-year-old husky from Buenos Aires meets the 30-year-old Negro in a scheduled 10 rounder before a Denver Coliseum crowd that will include leaders in the National Boxing Assn. (NBA), holding its 38th annual convention here. Miteff's handlers admit they'd like him to impress the NBA notables with a fast kayo that would boost Miteff's ranking several notches above his present No. 8 rating among contenders for Floyd Patterson's heavyweight championship. Holman is unranked. Miteff is aiming for his 12th straight-pro victory. Holman has won 31, lost 15 and drew 1. The ambitious South American ruled an 8-to-5 favorite. The bout will not be televised or broadcast.

H'i also a. week in which the National League race could tighten because Milwaukee's first-place Braves are loose. Everyone knew the Yankees had done it again when they took three of four from the Chicago White Sox in late June. Won Flag Again 'In short, the Yankees,won the flag June 23. Trouble was, the White Sox didn't die. By the middle of July they were just two games back after beating the Yankees in the first game of a double-header at Chicago. But the Sox blew the nightcap and that did it. In short, the Yankees won the flag July 14. Trouble was, the White Sox didn't die. They were just 3% games behind by late August and the Yankees were in a slump. So the Yankees "slumped" to a three-game sweep for a 6%-game bulge. In short,, the Yankees won the flag on Aug. 29. Trouble was, the White Sox didn't die. Fact is, it's the Yankees who are being checked for signs of life these days after losing 6 of 11 since that "clinching" sweep at Chic'go. Two-Game Set With the White Sox, now 5% back, due for a two-game set at Yankee Stadium this weekend, it appears Manager Casey Stengel is through playing cat and mouse. or Case wanted Sal Maglie and the Yankee dollar got him from Brooklyn to help a pitching staff that at the moment has managed only three complete games in the last 21. But with sore-arm Whitey Ford apparently back in shape, things look good enough on the mound and Stengel has turned to strengthening ' his "unbeatable" bench. Two Newcomers Mickey Mantle is out of the hospital, but still uncertain because of shin splints; Yogi Berra is out with a bruised and swollen, but not broken, right thumb, and Hank Bauer's cracked thumb is on the mend. So the Yankees have picked up a pair of outfielder-pinch hitters in Bobby Del Greco, the good-field-no-hit kid from Pittsburgh via St. Louis, Chicago and Montreal, and John (Zeke) Bella, who hit .309 at Denver. Both will be on hand tonight when the Yankees open their last home stand against the West with Cleveland. The White Sox, who play 14 of their remaining 19 games on the road while the Yankees play 13 of their 16 at home, are at Boston tonight. Disclaim Pressure In the NL, Milwaukee and second-place St. Louis make their final stands against the East with the Braves insisting "we're not feeling any pressure" in answer to queries on how they managed to lose three games from their 8%-game Labor Day lead. The Braves play Pittsburgh to night while the Cardinals, with Stan Musial still sidelined be cause his ailing shoulder tightened up after a pinch-hit job Sunday, meet Philadelphia. The Dod gers, seven games back, are at Chicago.

The other strong possibility for the starting assignment is John Waljgenbach„,This4i47-pounder who stands 6' 10**- is considered a top defensive back because of his sharp tackling and pass defense ability. Although he is currently running behind Lane and. Noland in the left halfback position, he is accorded an excellent chance of making the position by Friday night when' t$e Tigers travel to Manning to battle the Bulldogs. A light workout is scheduled for the Carroll team Tuesday afternoon because of the steady early- taorning rain that left the field in a soggy condition. At this stage' of the game, before the season opens, C o a p h "Bud" Paulsen doesn't want to tempt fate and sustain any more Injuries. * * * RAZOR-SHARP: The optimistic outlook and keen desire 'displayed by the Kuemper Knights has in Infectious quabty. Coach Steve Garbier, normally a bit on the reticent side, was glowing with pride Monday night when his charges appeared razor- sharp in an intricate signal drill. "Our ball-handling was exceptionally good, and if we can just retain this sharpness until Friday night when we meet Dowling in Des Moines I'm going to be quite pleased^' he said. Coach Garbier indicated the Knights would work out as planned on Tuesday unless a hard rain falls during the practice session. In that event, a dialk-talk and movies would be scheduled for .the gym. 1 BYES ON DRAKE: >' When the Iowa Teachers football team plays Drake University at Drake Stadium in Des Moines on Saturday night, quite a few familiar faces will peer at each other, across the line of scrimmage.^ "Floyd Wilkens/ standout all-sta­ ter from Carroll, will be one of the big guns in the Drake attack. The sophomore fullback is • counted, upon to lead the Bulldog ground offensive and he also is expected to do a good share of the punting for the Drake team. Across 1 the line of scrimmage Wilkens Will find former teammates Larry Sabus, star end at Iowa Teachers as a sophomore last season; and Ron Roderick, a rugged newcomer to the Tutor line in a tackle spot. Still another former Tiger teammate who may see action is Danny Balk, another end. The area' situation becomes more interesting with Scranton's Paul Pemble moving into a quarterback post for the Tutors. He is a converted center who moved to the number three blocking post and now has been shifted to signal-caller. * * * DEDHAM ENDS SEASON: The Dedham softball team ended the season with a pair of wins last weekend. Lanesboro bowed by a 10-4 count and Roselle \fcas nipped by a 3-2 score. The victories represented the fourth straight triumph by Dedham over each of the foes. John Werner hit a seventh-in- ningnome run against Roselle to win the game and hand the loss to Dick Camp. Werner also had a single and another run scored to account for a busy evening. Elmer Hoffman picked up the pitching victory as Dedham ended the campaign with a season record^ of 20 wins and 7 losses. Spahn Posts Best Earned Run Average NEW YORK «J - Lefthande* Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee Braves, who is heading toward hia eighth 20-game victory season, has taken over the National League lead in the earned run competition.

Jim Bunning of Detroit (2.54) and Bobby Shantz (2.57) and Tom Sturdivant (2.66) of the Yankees are in contending positions behind Turley in the American League. Statistics Prove Deer Hunting Law Outmoded DITTMER NOW HOME . ELKADER W — Jack Dittmer, who hit .315 playing second base for Birmingham, Ala. in the Southern Association this season, has returned home to help his father run the family's automobile deal ership this winter. Dittmer, a former State University of Iowa athlete, was sent to the Class AA Southern Association by the Detroit Tigers in late July. Previously he had .been in the Milwaukee Braves farm system for several years. THROWS PUTTER AWAY BALTIMORE Wi — Any golfer would understand if Charlie Bassler didn't even bother to replace the putter he broke Monday. • Bassler, professional from nearby Catonsville, snapped the club in two after missing a short putt on the 14th hole in a mid-Atlantic proam tournament at the par-72 Sparrows Point course. Six over par at that stage, he decided to finish' the round by putting- with a No. '2 iron. He parred two holes and birdied the dther two, including the 17th, where he dropped a 30-footer. Bob Devaney, new head football coach at the University of Wyoming, spent seven years as coach'at Alpena, Mich,, High School. His teams there won 52 games, lost 9.

By DION HENDERSON Associated Press Staff Writer A terrible tempered fellow armed with a high powered rifle is the last man you'd expect to be lured into a barefaced swindle. But that may be exactly what's happening to a great many of the nation's deer hunters. This doesn't appear to be the case in . states like New Hampshire, Missouri, Maine and Arkansas. But in some of the most important deer hunting states, figures strongly hint that the fellow with the gun has been getting considerable less than a buck's worth of bucks for his buck. There's mighty little disagreement among, game managers as to how a deer herd should be balanced to its range, it surpluses harvested and its range expanded if a larger basic herd is wanted. But among deer hunters — oh, my. Handy Index A handy old index for making generalities about deer management is the one that says a wild doe will average 1.5 fawns a year under normal conditions. In a wild herd with approximately equal division of the sexes, that, provides an annual increase of three young deer for each four parents. Allowing for the die-offs of age, predation and accidents, game managers can allow an annual hunter harvest of between 20 and 25 per TODAY'S BASEBALL By The "Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B _ 87 51 .630 — _ 80 55 _ 74 62 cent without decreasing the basic herd. (This rate of increase can be pushed away up on purpose through management of the sex ratios, and it happens sporadically in the bigger deer states by natural coincidence of various factors.) But consider now the estimated deer herds and annual hunter harvests established in a U.S. .Bureau of.Wildlife survey of the 1955 season. Small Kill Pennsylvania, with an . estimated population of 300,000 deer, killed 86,155 or 28.7 per cent in a drive to recude overpopulated areas. But Wisconsin, with a herd estimated at 600,000, killed only 5.8 per cent. Maine, with 180,000 deer, harvested, 19.8 per cent. But Michigan, with more than 600,000, killed only«11.7 per cent. New York and Minnesota put approximately 16 per cent of their big respective herds into the freezer, but Texas took only 9.7 per cent of its 450,000. Since only about 20 per cent of a wild herd is made up of antlered bucks, the professionals say the situation is obvious: a deer hunter ought to get more doe for his dough. But public opposition to doe season, in some states, still is overwhelming. 1 Race Issue Snarls Ring DENVER W*-The issue of Negro versus white in Louisiana boxing rings erupted as expected Monday at the opening sessions pf the 38th annual National Boxing Assn. convention here. The NBA withdrew its proposed amendment to suspend Louisiana because of a law prohibiting mixed fights when it was assured "efforts would be made to seek repeal of the law," Abe Greene, Patterson, N.J., NBA commissioner said. NBA President Floyd Stevens of Detroit said he has received letters from the Louisiana attorney general's office and the Louisiana State Boxing Commission that repeal efforts will be made during the 1958 legislative session. Stevens also said that Emile Bruneau, secretary of the Louisiana commission, told a three- member sub - committee of the NBA by-laws and Legislative committee that a bill to npeal the law would be introduced by a legislator in the 1958 session, but did not name him. DISMAL CARD NEWS ST. LOUIS <# — The St. Louis Cardinals received dismal news Monday from Stan Musial, their injured star—he will not be in the lineup' tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies as he had planned. The left shoulder of the six-time batting champion tightened up Monday after he made a successful pinch hit appearance Sunday. Musial, now leading the National League in hitting with a :341 mark, said that he'll probably be back in the lineup this weekend against the New York Giants. PEREZ EYES GOMES NEW YORK IB -Having gained the edge over Bobby Bell, Brooklyn's Lulu Perez today was looking forward to a chance to square accounts with Harold Gomes. Perez, an 8-5 underdog, staggered Bell, Youngstown, Ohio vet« eran, four times in an action* packed, return 10 rounder at St. Nicholas Arena Monday night to earn a unanimous decision.
