Drysaale Versus Burdette- Aces Clash In Loop Playoff By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — The quietly confident Dodgers, with one playoff victory already in the bag, returned to Los Angeles today. They need only one more triumph oter defending champion Milwaukee for their first National League pennant since 1956. A 3-2 victor in Milwaukee Monday, Dodger manager Walter Alston appeared to be in the driver's seat. He had his ace, Don Drysdale, set to pitch the second game of the best-of-three against the Braves, a team he has beaten 11 times in 15 lifetime decisions. Even if the Braves should upset the dope. and hang a defeat upon the redoubtable Dodger right-hander, Alston still has Roger Craig, currently the hottest pitcher on his staff, for a payoff game Wednesday. Burdctte for Braves Manager Fred Haney in a last- ditch battle to keep the Braves' flickering hopes alive, also went 2 Tlmt» Herald. Carroll, U. Tuesday, Sepf. 29, 1959 with his best right-hander. Haney pinned his hopes on Lew Burdette, a 21 -game winner. The game was scheduled to start at 4 p.m. Central Standard Time with ABC television coverage. Haney, whose theme all season long was "we'll play them one at a time," declined to say who would pitch the third game should the Braves pull even but it was regarded as a certainty that his choice would be Bob Buhl, a Dodger tamer from 'way back. Haney gambled and lost in the opener although he got a well- pitched game from Carl Willey, who has won only five games all year. Fred had been expected to open with Burdette but a look at the past performance sheet shows why he didn't.

He is 2-0 against them at Los Angeles this year. Smaller Day Crowd A crowd of 50,000 or more was expected to turn out at the Coliseum, where day games are a rarity. If the game were to be played at night it is conceivable that close to a sellout crowd of 90,000 would attend in the hope of seeing the Dodgers finally win a playoff after two previous failures. In 1946, they lost two straight to St. Louis and five years later they dropped the rubber of a three-game series to the New York Giants. A slim gathering of 18,297 on a dreary, rainy afternoon saw the Dodgers get a brilliant pitching exhibition from rookie Larry Sherry in Milwaukee Monday. Manager Alston summoned Sherry from the bullpen to replace his surprise starting choice, Danny McDevitt, when the left-hander ran into trouble in the second inning. Stopped by Sherry Sherry, a 24-year-old right-hand­ er brought up from St. Paul in July, stopped the Braves cold after they had forged ahead 2-1, handcuffing them with four harmless singles over the last 7 2-3 innings.

ALLIED Don Drysdale the game in the sixth on Johnny Roseboro's home run over the right-field fence. The Dodgers played without Duke Snider, their leading hitter. The veteran center fielder, still hobbled by a bad left knee, was a doubtful starter today. Don Demeter, Snider's replacement, got one of the Dodgers' 10 hits off Willey and Don McMahon. Norm Larker, who took over Snider's Cleanup spot, collected three hits and drove in a run. Gil Hodges singled in the other Dodger run. The Braves, mired in a batting slump for a week, were hopeful of snapping out of it at Los Angeles, where they have won 6 of 11 this year. from dale barton's KEYBOARD BOOSTER ACTIVITY: The word "booster" was perhaps inadvertently used in connection with a recent Glidden - Ralston story in the Times Herald. As used in the story it was meant to denote the entire community effort backing the activities of the Glidden-Ralston school. However, in Glidden the word "booster" specifically means the Glidden Booster Club. John Cassell, secretary of the club, says the Boosters don'( want to take credit for all the things that have been done to improve the athletic and scholastic set-up at the school. He forwards the information that the movie camera currently being used by the school was purchased by the Farmers Co-op Association of Ralston. The Booster Club, headed by Owen Overholt, is raising money to buy film far the camera. The new electric scoreboard was a private enterprise project. The cost of about $1,300 was paid by First National Bank, Quality Egg Marketing Co-op, Glidden Co-op Creamery, Glidden REA and the Farmers Co-op of Glidden. We are happy to set the record straight and still contend that the community effort and spirit displayed by the students and people in the Glidden-Ralston Community School district qualifies each one to be classed as a "booster." As mentioned before in these columns, the Wildcats enjoy the fin- jest possible backing. * * * INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS Northwestern Second- Hawks in Fiffh Place By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer Louisiana State's defending national champions clung tightly to their No. 1 position but the rest of the top ten underwent a spirited shakeup today in the second weekly Associated Press college football poll.

Syracuse 21 Willey Praised by Milwaukee Skipper On October 2—for the first time in Chevrolet's ^9-year history—you will fee able to walk Into your dealer's showroom and see two totally different kinds of cars. • One is the conventional 1960 Chevrolet, brand new in appearance and more beautifully refined and luxurious than you can imagine. • The other is unlike any car we or anybody else ever built— the revolutionary Corvair, with the engine in the rear where it belongs in a compact car. • We'd like to tell you why we built two such different cars, how we built them—and for whom we built them. Why two kind* of cars? Because America itself has been going through some big changes in the past few years. Our cities have been straining at their seams. Traffic is jam-packed. Parking space is at a premium. And our suburbs have spread like wildfire. People are living farther from their work, driving more miles on crowded streets. There is new leisure time—but more things to do. There's a new standard of living—and more need for two cars in the family garage. In short, America's automobile needs have become so complex that no one kind of car can satisfy them completely. That is why we at Chevrolet, keeping tab on these trends, have had a revolutionary compact car in the planning stages for more than nine years. Thus, when we decided three years ago to prepare for production of such a car we were ready to build it the way it should be built. There was no need for a hasty "crash" program that would create only a sawed-off version of a conventional car. That is why the two cars you will see in your dealer's showroom October 2 will be two entirely different kinds of cars. One is the conventional '60 Chevrolet—brand new in beauty, with new space inside, new spirit under the hood, a new feeling of aumptuousnesa and luxury never before attained by any car in its field. There is great V8 power linked with new thrift, plus Chevrolet's superb 6-cylinder engine. It is a traditional car that comes even closer to perfection—in silence, in room, in ease of control, in velvety ride—than any other car we have ever made. The other is the Corvair, a compact car that is astonishingly different from anything ever built in this country. It has to be—because this is a six- passenger compact car, with a really remarkable performance ... a car designed specifically to American standards of comfort, to American traffic needs. The engine is in the rear. Among the basic advantages resulting from this engine location are better traction on a compact 108-inch wheel base and a practically flat floor. But to be placed in the rear, the engine had to be ultra light and ultra short. So Corvair'* engine is totally new— mostly aluminum and air cooled; it weighs about 40 per cent less than conventional engines. It is a "flat" horizontally opposed six—so it is only three cylinders long . . . and that leaves a lot more room for passengers. Another weight saving: like modern airplanes, the Corvair has no frame; the body-shell supplies it great struc­ tural strength . . . it's a welded unit that is virtually rattle-free. The ride is fantastic. But to get it we had to design independent suspension at every wheel; conventional springing would give a compact car a choppy ride. Right now we'll make one prediction: no other U.S. compact car will ride so comfortably, hold the road so firmly and handle so beautifully. Now there are two kinds of cars from Chevrolet—because it takes two kinds of cars to serve America's needs today. If you love luxury—the utmost in luxury—and if you want generous interior space, breath-taking perform- , ance, automatic drives and power assists—then the conventional '60 Chevrolet may be your choice. If easy parking, traffic agility and utmost economy are high on your list —then you should seriously consider the Corvair. But the best thing to do is to look these two new cars over at your Chevrolet dealer's . . . take them out for a drive. It may be that the only logical choice for your family between two cars like this is—both. They make a perfect pair.

But Milwaukee loser Carl Willey also came in for his share of praise. Sherry hurled four-hit ball for 7 2-3 innings in relief for a 3-2 victory over the Braves Monday in the opener of a best-of-three series for the National League pennant. Willey, who hadn't started a game for a month, was the surprise choice of manager Fred Haney. He did a creditable job, although tagged for all three Los End in New Drake Shift Angeles runs in six Innings before being lifted for a pinchhitter. Pitched Good Game "I have that one satisfaction— the kid went out and pitched a good game for us," Haney said in lcudlng Willey. "He only gave up three runs and you can't do much better than that unless it's a shutout." Willey's teammates trooped up to the slender right-hander from Cherryfield, Maine, to tell him he did a "great job." The Biaves also had many fine words for the performance of the pitching of Sherry. Over in the Los Angeles clubhouse, everyone talked of the great performance by the 23-year-old hurler in relief of starter Danny McDevitt. "I was surprised when I was pulled by (manager) Walt Alston so quickly, but I'm glad he did," McDevitt said. "I don't think anyone else could have done the job ] lo-round bout Matthews is Gunninq for Ortiz Scrap By NOAH HALPER PHILADELPHIA 'AP* - Two down and one to go. That's the theme in the camp of lightweight contender Len Matthews following his victory over Paulie Armstead Monday night. Armstead last January handed Matthews his first loss. Ray Lancaster held Matthews to a draw but was knocked out in the second round of their return mutch. Carlos Ortiz, the No. 1 challenger for lightweight champion Joe Brown's title, is the only other boxer to have blotted the Matthews' record. He stopped Len in five earlier this year. If Manager Tony Grazinno has his way. Matthews will meet Ortiz here again later this year. Graziano said today he felt Matthews was ready even though the 20- year-old Philadolphian admittedly wasn't sharp in Monday night's MAJOR LEAGUES By The Associated Press National League Monday Result ' Los Angeles 3, Milwaukee 2 (Los Angeles leads best-of-three series 1-0) W.

DES MOINES - Tommy O'Connell Monday made several more player shifts as his Drake Bulldogs began work for Friday's third home game in a row. This week's encounter pits his hustling sophomore dominated Bulldogs against Iowa Teachers in the stadium at 8 p.m. O'Connell moved still another sophomore Into his starting lineup by sending Jerry Shipman of Oskaloosa into the end spot held by junior Roger Zino. The other first-unit switch sends Senior Rupert Hartshorn to center in place of Tom Holt, Fort Madison senior. The new Drake boss also indicated that Co-Capt. Floyd Wilkens of Carroll would be given the spread end assignment on the No. 2 unit, with Gene Schultz moving over from tackle to take Wilkens' guard spot. Dave Zeinemann, promising looking junior college player, completes the reshuffling by taking over for Schultz. Zeinemann scored on three of three conversions against Central Michigan Friday and is rated as Drake's No. 1 field goal specialist. Shipman has been improving steadily and Friday grabbed a pass for 13 yards as Drake's flanker-T attack continued to show improvement. Hartshorn would be the only non- sophomore opening in the line against Teachers If O'Connell sticks with present plans. With Jerry Rogers at fullback it means the Bulldogs could open with sev en newcomers. Monday the Drakes reviewed defensive assignments and also worked hard on their passing game. They were able to complete 8 of 26 passes against Central Michi< gan with possibly another half dozen in the "should have been completed" department. Sherry did unless they pitched a no-hitter." ! Not Discouraged The Braves were disappointed j but not discouraged. "We've been doing it from the back end all year long and now we have to keep doing it," Haney said philosophically. "This is going to the end," said third baseman Eddie Mathews who still is seeking his 46th homer to break a deadlock with Chief no's Ernie Banks for the major league's top spot. Alston named Don Drysdale (1713) as his pitcher today in Los Angeles, hopeful on wrapping up the championship. Haney called on fidgety Lew Burdette, a 21-game winner, to send the Braves into a decisive third game. Former Sox Pilot Succumbs ot Home INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—John M.
