Wynn Against Craig in Opener- World Series Starts Thursday; White Sox Favored, 11-10 By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO <AP> — The Los An- fielcs Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox, two clubs who have to scrap for what they get, finally open what miRht he the richest World Series in history here Thursday at Comiskey Park. Manager Walt Alston, his Dodgers riding high after beating Milwaukee in the National League pennaiU_ playoff, said his first game ditcher will be Roger Craig 'll-5>, an almost forgotten right­ hander who became a ace in the drive for the flag. White Sox Manager Al Lopez is expected to name Early Wynn, at 39 the Old Man right-hander who topped the majors with 22 victories and was the American League's only 20-game winner. White Sox Favored The oddsmakers favor the White Sox, playing in a World Series for the first time in 40 years, at 11-10 for both the series and the first game. The first two games will be played in Comiskey Park with the best-of-seven championship then shifting to the Coliseum in Los Angeles for the third, fourth and, if necessary, fifth games. If needed, the sixth and seventh games will be played in Chicago, with a day of travel interruDting play when the clubs shift parks. Old Guard Paces Dodgers- Braves Scalps Shorn By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES <AP> - The champion Los Angeles Dodgers moved into Chicago today, ready to take on the White Sox for the world championship. The Milwaukee Braves, shorn of their National League pennant, headed for their homes. But (lie scene in Memorial Coliseum Tuesday as dusk settled was still a vivid memory to the 36,528 fans gathered in the place, and the thousands who watched on television. Old Guard Heroes Two of the great heroes of the Dodger old guard, first baseman Gil Hodges and outfielder Carl Furillo, were all but dismantled by their teammates as the battle came to its quick end in the 12th inning. Hodges scored the winning run in the 6 to 5 victory on Furillo's hit back of second base, a tally Timet Herald. Carroll, la. Wednesday, Sept. 30, 1959 It's the massive Coliseum, seating some 94,000 for baseball, which could make this the richest series. Comiskey Park seats 46,550. Game Time 1 p .m. All games will start at 1 p.m. local time and will be telecast and broadcast nationally by NBC. The bookmakers have made the White Sox favorites because of their three days of rest since Sunday's close of the American League season. That layoff, however, may have cooled off the Sox, while the Dodgers could still be riding the kick of having won eight of their last 10 games. The Dodgers, first club ever to win an NL pennant after finishing seventh the year before, Jumped into Comiskey Park for a workout today. They boarded a flight from Los Angeles a few hours after eliminating the defending champion Braves two straight in the best of three playoff with Tuesday's 6-5, 12-inning victory. Lopez, meanwhile, sent his White Sox through an intra-squad game Tuesday, hoping to keep 'em sharp Rest Helps Sox The one-day delay in the series opener caused by the NL playoff probably did the Sox' walking injured — outfielder Jim Landis (injured leg) and catcher Sherm Lollar (bruised hand) — some good. But it may not prove a benefit for Wynn. The Old Man, top winner among major league A CosB 'O 'inStic DRIVE ® 800 PROOF DEMONSTRATION CONVINCE YOU TO TRADE NOW! Test-drive the new Case-o-matic 800!

The entire Dodger team suddenly became one rolling, tangled mass of happy ballplayers. Silently, in typical Indian single file procession, the Braves walked out of their dugout, down the long tunnel and into their dressing quarters. They said not a word during the march, and very little as they showered, dressed and took off. There was no champagne celebration in the Dodgers quarters. For one thing, liquor is barred from the city-owned Coliseum. For another, the team had less than three hours to take off (pr Chicago. But there was a joyous interlude. Hodges poured a soft drink over tlie head of the winning pitcher, young Stan Williams. Then he got on the rubbing table to have his chronically sore leg massaged. Manager Walt Alston, a soft- spoken, kindly sort of man. was speechless for moments but finally said: "At the moment, I can't think of much to say." Presently Alston excused himself. He showed up, still in uniform and spiked shoes, in the Brave dressing room to shake hands with Brave manager Fred Haney. "You came from behind to win and you deserved it," sportsman Haney declared. "Now go after the White Sox." pitchers still at it (271), has worked best with three days rest. He'll have four days - of rest for the opening assignment. While the Dodgers number quite a few holdovers from previous series squads, the White Sox have but four — first baseman Earl Torgeson, with the 1948 Braves; outfielder Al Smith and Wynn, with the 1954 Cleveland Indians: and Lollar, with the 1947 New York Yankees. Only Lollar was with a winner, and it was the Dodgers whom the Yankees beat, in seven games. Lopez, incidentally, managed the Indians of '54 — and lost the series in four straight games to the Giants. Fourth Series Entry This is the fifth White Sox team to win a pennant, but only the Chisox Arm Lopez With Heavy Sugar By JOE MOOSIIIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox, eyeing what will be the biggest World Series melon in history, are ready to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers Armed with a new contract calling for the highest salary ever paid a White Sox player or manager, Al Lopez feels his 'team has a great chance for the title. Lopez called Los Angeles "a pretty good ball club with a few guys who can run." He wouldn't say if he thought the Dodgers were faster than his "go go" Sox but said "their catcher iJohn Roseboro) can run. I saw him steal a base against the Cubs." Lopez signed a one-year contract calling for an estimated $50,000. The highest paid Sox player is believed to be Nellie Fox who supposedly is receiving around $40,000. William Otis invented the steam shovel in 1839. Favor Giardello Over Dick Tiger In Chicago Bout CHICAGO (AP) - Dick Tiger, British Empire middleweight champion, will match his swift left hooks against Joey Giardello's right-hand bombs tonight. Giardello, veteran of 100 bouts, is a 6-5 favorite in the televised i ABC, 9 p.m. EST) 10 rounder, to be scored under the 5-point-must system. Giardello, ex-Philadelphian now living in Rosedale, N. Y., is seeking his fourth straight victory after taking decisions from Chico Vejar and Holly Mims and scoring a first round knockout over Del Flanagan.

Boxers NEW YORK (AP) - The continuing decline of United States boxers and the rise of the pros in other lands is strikingly noted in the latest ratings of Ring magazine. Of the 88 champions and con tenders ranked in the eight divisions, 48 positions, or 55 per cent, are occupied by non-U-S. fighters. In the latest monthly ratings, released today, fighters from outside the U.S. held 4 berths in tho heavyweight division, headed by World Champion Ingemar Johansson of Sweden; 6 in the light heavyweight class; 2 in the middleweight division; 4 in the welterweight division; 3 in the lightweight division; 7 in the featherweight group; and all 11 in both the bantamweight and flyweight classes. The other non-U.S. world champions are bantamweight Joe Becerra of Mexico and flyweight Pascual Perez of Argentina. Finland has a ranking fighter for the first time since heavyweight Gunnar Barlund was up with the elite in the late thirties and early forties. The rated Finn is flyweight Risto Luukkonen, No. 9 among the 112-pounders. Tony Anthony of New York was named "Fighter of the Month" for his decision over heavyweight Alonzo Johnson of Pittsburgh. Anthony, longtime light heavyweight contender, was shifted from the 175-pound class to eighth contender in the heavyweight division. Last year the per capita consumption of newsprint in the United States was 76.2 lbs. fourth to play in a World Series. The 1901 club won the first AL race, but the World Series wasn't born until 1903. The Hitless Wonders of 1908 won the series from Chicago's Cubs and the 1917 team beat the New York Giants. Then came the infamous Black Sox and the rigged 1919 series with Cincinnati. The Sox, with 35 of their 94 victories by one run, put away their first pennant since then with a 4-2 victory, behind Wynn, over Cleveland a week ago Tuesday. Like the Dodgers, the White Sox gath- ered in the pennant by beating the only club that could take it from them. They were 15-7 against second- place Cleveland for the season, virtually locking up the flag with a four-game sweep late in August. The Dodgers, winning a pennant with the fewest victories (88) la National League history, put away their ninth title — their first as a West Coast club — after being tied with Milwaukee for second, two games behind San Francises, on the next to last Friday of the season. Carroll Defense is Tough on Air Attack III THf DENNIS O'KEIFI SHOW • IVItY WIEK ON CBS-TV,.. HEAR lOWIU THOMAS AND THE NEWS • MONDAY THRU FRIDAY ON CBS RADIO The Carroll Tigers have won only one game and they have lost a pair, but statistically they have outscored their foes and their rock- ribbed defense has hamstrung the opposition in the air. Carroll has scored a total of 24 points compared to 20 by Manning, Manilla and Harlan. In total yardage, the Tigers have a mark of 402 compared to 445. The significant feature in the statistics is the fact opponents have completed only 10 of 39 passes for 93 yards while Carroll has connected on 11 of 40 for 153 yards. The primary weakness in the Carroll camp with the season one- third over is the lack of a consistent ground game. Carroll has netted 15 first downs by rushing compared to 23 by the opposition. Coach Gene Macomber is well pleased with his aerial arm and plans a few changes to take advantage of the opposition's concentration on pass defense. Perusal of the following statistics bears out the contention the Tigers easily could have had a 30 record with a couple of breaks. CARROLL STATISTICS: Individual At. Yds.
