Al Lopez, the White Sox manager, had the foresight to clip some of the obituary notices typed by Yankee newsmen, quoting var- iious members of the New York club on the demise of the 1959 league champs. Lopez pinned them to the bulletin board in the White Sox clubhouse. Apparently the Sox got the message. It is Lopez" turn to smile now with his White Sox only one game •»*-*»t »T»«W i*iau*.v*u O1V>.
