The Tigers were defeated. 26-13, by the pledgling Eagles. ^ ; There were 13. varsity football players on the practice field after 18 had been taken into the brief smash into the right field seats, i [ n f. r ° om for a pre-game chalk talk by Colburn CoUinge, the freshman-sophomore coach.

While 23 players were battling in the practice plays, over a dozen were anxiously awaiting developments along the sideline. While all this was going on in the 1 varsity sector, Tom Ryaff, the freshman - sophomore coach, had so many candidates working on different aspects that it was difficult for hirn to oversee each group. * * * INJURIES: Despite the presence of what seems like a wealth of material, Coach Garbier is fearful of injuries. His reasoning is very sound.

"This is not a big squad, but I think it's a solid squad. I honestly do." „ Former Greats Purdue has had a great line of passers, like Bob De Moss, Dale Samuels and Dawson, but Mollenkopf insists the Boilermakers are not essentially a passing team. •This was in answer to a question whether the Boilermakers would pass as much this year as last. "Passing is only about 27 per cent of our T-formation offense," he r sald,, "Sure, we'll pass at least feat rnuch. .this year." _ ,. Dawson's quarterback job will go to either Bob Spoo, who played some 62 minutes last fall, .or sophomore Ross Fichtner. "• Fair Passers Spoo can't pass like Dawson but probably will start at first because of experience. Mollenkopf predicts Fichtner will become a good quarterback. "He can pass adequately--and is the same type Kenny .Ploen (Iowa) and Earl Morrall (Michigan State) were *a fine ball handler and good.run­ ner." ...

Field Manager Fred Hutchinson relaxed in his dressing room after! the game and said: - j "They've got a good feeling. We've got good momentum and we've gbt to keep it. We can't wait on anybody else to beat Milwaukee. We play them three games so we've got to beat them." Lane doffed his hat to Milwaukee Manager Fred Haney and said. he deserved a lot of credit for the patchwork job he did when regulars Johnny Logan, Billy Bruton and Joe Adcock were injured. Braves Are Deeper "The Braves are much deeper than the Cardinals," Lane said, "except for Stan Musial, Al Dark and Del Ennis most of the Cardinals are comparative youngsters who had few talking points when their contracts came up for discussion in past years. "I hope all 25 Cardinals come to me next year thinking they have a reason for an increase in pay." . - .'• The New FalI Look in _ SPORT COATS The ivy League Crowd Is Going to Have a Field Day with the new, red-hot; v Navy blue all-wool flannel Blazer Coat for Fall, 1958, featured at ANDY BALK'S.

It was Aaron and Adcock who homered home all the runs and split six of Milwaukee's nine hits in a 3-1' victory over flie New York Giants Tuesday night—giving the Braves two in a row for the flrst'time in two weeks and re­ taining'their three-game National League lead with 10 to go. It was a neat and necessary job since second-place St.Louls stayed with It, rallying for seven runs in the seventh that crushed Brooklyn 12-5. The third-place Brooks, champs for two years, now are virtually out of it, trailing by eight with eight to play. Magic'Number Now 8 Any combination, of eight Milwaukee victories and St/Louis de feats wraps up the Braves' first pennant since 1948. 1 The American League champ is now a certainty (surprise!) with the New York Yankees holding a 6%-game lead with nine to play after beating Detroit 7-1 while Baltimore rocked Chicago's, sec ond-place White Sox 7-5 in 10 innings. The Yankees' magic num ber is five with the White Sox having 12 games remaining. So "much for the, pennant races. The batting battles look like this: ..Williams Ahead In the AL; ailing Ted Williams added a point for .377 with a pinchhit home run that triggered Boston's 9-8 victory over Kansas City. Yankee Mickey Mantle, 0-for 3, lost three points for a .366 average. In the NL, Cardinal Stan Musial was l-for-2 and stayed put at .342 while Willie Mays of the Giants was"' l-for-4, lost a point and slipped to .338. Cleveland defeated Washington 7-3 in the other AL game. Cincinnati bagged Pittsburgh 9-5 and dropped the Pirates into the cellar as the Chicago Cubs moved out with a 7-1 decision over Philadelphia in-the other NL action. .Aaron Was Great Tuesday night Aaron was 3-for-4, doubling ahead of Adcock's second-inning home run and swatting his 41st homer in the eighth. Right-hander Bob Trowbridge! spun a five-hitter, all singles, and walked«none ior a 7-5 record. Rookie Xurt Barclay (9-8) lost it. The Cards- smacked 12 hits, but needed only four of them in the big seventh when two walks, a sacrifice ( fly- and one of three Dodger errors helped overhaul a 5-3 Brook lead. Reliever Ed Roebuck walked the lead run across and Irv Noren then socked a three run pinch triple that guaranteed a 15th victory for Card ace Larry Jackson, . Cookie southpaw Danny Mc- Devifct' was the loser. Bobby Shantz, winless for a month, tossed a four-hitter for an 11-5 record. The stubby southpaw lined a two-run single that closed a big six-run eighth, which Hank Bauer opened against loser Billy Hoeft (8-11) with his 18th home run. Pierce Beaten Again The Orioles, : three-hit and trailing 5.-1, junked Billy Pierce's second bid for his.20th victory with four runs-in the eighth, then beat rookie Barry Latman on Bob Nieman's two-run homer in the 10th. Billy Loes won his 12th in relief. Williams' 34th homer was a 400- foot; job. that; led off a two-run eighth in his fir,st appearance since Sept. 1. That tied it and the Red Sox then nailed it with Billy Klaus' RBI single. Murray Wall (3-0) was the winner with Tom Morgan the loser, both in relief. "Ray Narleski won his 11th for the' Tribe, blanking the Nats for seyen. Russ Nixon's three-run homer gave him a quick lead. in the ., second against Camilo Pascual. who lost his 15th. Home runs by Bob Thurman and George Crowe fired a five-run sixth that did it for the Redlegs handing Bob Friend his 18th defeat. Joe Nuxhall won with relief help. Ernie ' Banks, Bobby Morgan and rookie right-hander Moe Dra- bowsky hpmered for the Cubs. Rookie Jack Sanford lost his eighth. ' .. By CHUCK CAPALDO MILWAUKEE (Jft-Fred Haney, round, flush-faced manager of the National League paeesettlng Milwaukee Braves, sized up the little group of writers before him Tuesday night and said, "I was playing scared baseball, that's all." Then he laughed, enjoying himself immensely, because he and his listeners knew the little Irishman was poking fun at his reputation as a conservative manager. Haney referred to the "hit" sign he flashed big Joe Adcock on a 3 and 0 pitch in the second inning of the Braves* game with the Giants. Hank Aaron' was on second at the time, with the first of his two doubles. Parked Cripple Adcock parked Curt Barclay's •'cripple" pitch in the left centerfield bleachers for a 2-0 lead'the Braves never relinquished. The final score was 3*1. It was Milwaukee's second stright vie tory after losing 8 out of 11 since Sept. .4. The decision enabled the Braves to retain their three-game lead oyer the runnerup Cardsen who also won. . • "I was afraid he wouldn't hit the 3-1 pitch," said Haney. "You know me. I'm , conservative." Seldom Get Chance As a matter of fact, the Braves seldom get a chance to swing on a three-ball and no-strike count because he doesn't give the green light often. •-. Adcock, back as a regular after being out of action from June 23 to Sept. 5 with a broken leg, and Eddie Mathews are about the only players who get the sign from Haney. Haney had Warren Spahn, his lefthanded ace, warming up in the bullpen in the ninth with a 3-1 lead. Shoot the Works Asked about this, Haney said, "We've got to shoot the works, | don't we? They had a man on. If they had come in with a left- handed pinchhitter, I would have brought Spahn in." The little skipper then said Cautiously, "We got nine hits tonight. Aaron and Adcock each got three. Maybe that's a sign we've begun to snap out of the hit slump a bit." Times Herald,.

UP) Veteran Virgil Akins, who has been clamoring for a welterweight title shot for close to five years, gets a chance to bolster his bid tonight when he faces hustling Gil Turner at the Auditorium. The 29-year-old St. Louis contender, ranked second by Ring Magazine and third by the NBA, is an 8-5 favorite to beat the 26- year old Turner in the television 10-rounder. Turner, a 152-pound Philadelphian, is ranked No.8 among the welters by Ring and ninth among the middleweights by the NBA. He is in the awkward weight class, too heavy for the welters and too light for the middles. . Ordinarily beating a fellow who is yanked behind you doesn't appear to be the best way to gain stature. But Turner is such a crowd pleaser with his bang-bang, no letup style that anyone who beats him is a cinch to add plenty to his popularity. A veteran of 60 pro fights In a nine-year career, Akins has been a colorless performer although a good one. His record is 43-16-1, including 23 knockouts. Gil's record is • 44-15-1, including 35 kayoes. A ABC will telecast, at 10 p.m.. EDT.

All three, accompanied by theff legal advisers, were noncommit« tal, but this much was certain; 1. The meeting probably will determine whether the Dodgers move to 1 Los Angeles or stay in Brooklyn. 2. Rockefeller is the key man, the "angel", who has to take both the city and. O'Malley off the financial hook. Pressing Rockefeller One informed source said the" city was pressing Rockefeller to contribute an additional million dollars. Another report had the city, hoping that Rockefeller would make up the difference between' what O^Malley wants to pay and what Wagner wants for the proposed land in downtown Brooklyn for a new park. Only last week. Rockefeller revealed that he was in the midst of* negotiations designed to keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn and had offered to help defray the cost of refused. Wagner in Middle Wagner is caught in the middle. With the New York Giants already having announced they will move to San Francisco next year, his advisers fear political repercus* sibns if the Dodgers also move. On the other hand, if he can persuaxie-Rockefeller to. jack up his contribution, the city's, cost of the new stadium would decrease. Politically, the administration | x fears it may be leaving itself vulnerable to charges of using public funds for private business.
