Hawks Dwarf Kuemper Line- Trek to Iowa City Saturday The Kttemper Knight* will face one of their most severe tests of the season Saturday night when they (ravel to Iowa City to meet the' Little Hawks. The pame will start at 8 p.m. at Iowa City High's field located at Morningside Brive and College Avenue on Iowa City's cast side. Coach Frank Bates of the highly rated Little Hawks has won two of three games. Their lone loss was in their opener to Davenport by the score of 13-6. Their victories are over East Moline, Illinois, 18-12 and Dubuque 21-0. The Kuemper game is the only contest Iowa City plays out of the tough Mississippi Valley conference. Huge Line The Hawks feature a huge line averaging 196 from end to end. This Dwarfs the starting Knight line by 28 pounds per man. Main- 'stays in the Iowa City line are Gary Freeman, a 230 pound tackle and brother of Jim who played end for the Hawkeyes two years ago. Probably their leading candidate for All State recognition is 180 pound guard, Roy "Butch" Frantz. At 2 Time* Herald. Carroll, U. Friday, October 9, 1959 the other tackle is Jim Stuart. Stuart is a transfer from West Branch and earned three letters at the latter school. In the backfield the Little Hawks will start Forrest "Frosty" Evashevski, a famllar name to Iowa fans. At halfbacks will be John Stevens and their lightweight speedster, 131 pound Harry Ostrander. Phil Minnich, a 185 pound junior will handle the fullback chores. Bates regards Minnich as the finest fullback at Iowa City since Bill Reichardt carried the ball for the Little Hawks and then for SUI. Iowa City will use the split T with Evashevskl at the controls. He also does the passing. Over all Iowa City will outweigh the Knights 185 to 162. Morale High Meanwhile at the Knights camp, the morale is decidedly on the upswing after a surprisingly easy upset win over Omaha (Holy Name) 27-6. The only serious injury suf- fered in last Friday's game was Dave Rettenmaier. Rettenm a i e r suffered a torn ligament In his knee and will probably be out for the season. However, the flu bug made its appearance this week. Two regulars, Tom Champion and Steve Macke, are on the sick tist and their availability for Saturday's contest is doubtful. Movies of last week's game showed the Knights' forward wall made considerable progress in their interior blocking. Emphasis this week has been placed on down field blocking and sharpening up their running attack. Coach Frank Sovich plans several changes for the Iowa City game. Everett Buddin will step into the left guard spot replacing Paul Collison. Collison will move to the wingback slot. Denny Gute will take over the wingback spot depending on Macke's availability. Mike Schaeffer is in line to start In place of Tom Champion at right tackle providing Champion is not ready to go. Vern Henkenius will be at the right end post.

That was the summation of the two dressing rooms Thursday aft er the Los Angeles Dodgers had defeated the Chicago White Sox 93 to take the 1959 World Series four games to two. Dodger utility man Don Zimmer shouted "so the Coliseum got 'em" in reference to White Sox remarks of having to play in .a makeshift park in Los Angeles. But the White Sox weren't taking him up on it. For them, the long, tense season was over and they were looking for a rest White Sox and major league officials pushed their way into the Dodger dressing room to offer congratulations to Manager Walt Alston. And Alston was smiling from ear to ear.

The game, a sellout since summer, will be televised regionally by NBC. Kick off time is 1:30 p.m. The Hawkeyes, needing the victory to remain in contention in the conference race, may play without me right now than the 1955 championship over New York in seven games," said Alston. "This was a better team effort. It was the hardest working team I've ever had. I can't single out any player as our key man. But I'll say I've never seen a kid so young so good as Larry Sherry." Sherry, the 24-year-old relief ace, was swarmed under by well- wishers and newsmen. "I had good luck, they were swinging at my pitches, I just wanted to get the batters out," were Sherry's routine answers to routine questions. Coach Chuck Dressen, who was ejected from , the game in he fourth inning after a hassle with Umpire Ed Hurley, said: Played Better "We beat those White Sox at their own game. We outran them, and Lord knows we sure outhit them. We were very satisfactory. We just played better." After shaking off the effects of having lost, the White Sox settled down and went about their business of getting home for the! winter. • ' Curt Merz, first-string end who is a candidate for All-America honors. Merz missed this week's practice sessions because of a knee ailment and is a doubtful participant. Full Strength The Spartans will be at full strength. Quarterback Dean Look, who has been sidelined with a shoulder sprain, reportedly is fully recovered and probably will start. Both teams have 1-1 records, but Iowa's victory was over California in a non-conference game. The Hawkeyes were beaten 14-10 by Northwestern in their only Big Ten start. Michigan State lost its opener to Texas A&M, then smashed conference rival Michigan 34-8. Fullback Blanche Martin powers the Spartans' offense, which includes the straight T, the wing T and the double wing T. Martin gained 99 yards in 9 carries against Michigan and is the Big Ten's leading rusher. Iowa's best rusher has been halfback Ray Jauch, who has averaged 6 yards in 23 carries for 143 yards gained. Halfback Bob Jeter has gained 124 yards in 24 carries. Statistical Edge . The Hawkeyes, rated 10th in this week'* Associated Press poll, will carry a statistical advantage into the scrap. Iowa has gained 762 yards in two games and is fifth in the nation in total offense. The Spartans have gained 667 yards. Veeck Says Chisox Will Make Trades By JERRY LISKA CHICAGO (AP) — The phone rang in the Comiskey Park club room shortly after the Dodgers had rapped the White Sox 9-3 to take the World Series. Owner Bill Veeck of the Sox an swered. After f a pause, Veeck exclaimed: "YOU lost a lot of money on this game? What about me? "Who am I? I'm Veeck and nobody wanted to see a seventh game more than me. "No, don't be sorry. Now we got something to shoot for next year." And so it went. "I think Al Lopez did the best job of managing I've ever seen," said sport-shirt Bill. "We went a lot further than I thought we could this season. "We simply hit.disaster in the series. We were beat. They just belted us out for the count in the last game. "I think we can beat any team in baseball, if we can keep the ball in the park. But they were hitting it over our outfielders' heads." Veeck said he anticipated a lively trading season because of the new rule that eliminates waivers for a three-week period in November. This means a club in one league can deal directly with a club in another league, "Were not going to stand still," he said. "We hope to trade as much as we can." Often a dream is a nightmare with her hair all done up in a flock of curlers. HERE NOW ARE 16 SUPERLATIVE NEW CHEVROLETS FOR 1960! 4 IMPALAS—All the car you ever yearned for!

Jack Hays, nominated for the starting center position, was ab sent from school Friday morning and reported running a tempera ture. Terry Kroeger, shifted from a second unit backfield role to starting guard position, likewise was absent with a fever. "The best that can be said about these boys is that they are extremely doubtful performers,' Coach Gene Macomber said. "That means we have three players out for this game. Larry Cover regular end, is still sidelined with an injury and we have to replace both Hays and Kroeger," he said. Gillett at Center Alec Gillett, 150-pound senior, has been nominated to take over the starting center position. Jim Prince, regular left guard, is expected to shift to right guard to replace Kroeger. Dave Wenck, substitute right half, will be moved into the line to take over Prince's left guard spot. Ron Swanson will stay at right end as the replacement for Cover. 'We must stay up for this game and win it in order to stay in the running," Coach Macomber told his players. The Tigers have a 1-1 record in conference play with a loss at the hands of Harlan and a victory over Audubon. Spotlight on Harlan The Midwest spotlight this week will focus on Harlan where the Cy clones entertain Jefferson's highly rated Rams. Each team has a 4-0 season record, but the Cyclones have won three conference tests find the Rams own only two loop wins. In other league encounters Ida Grove treks to Audubon in a game rated as a toss-up. The Hawks have failed to win a single game, and the Wheefers are l-l in the league with a win over Sac City and a loss to Carroll. Lake City is expected to extend Sac City's losing streak in a game at Sac City. The Eagles are still in the running in the league with victories over Ida Grove and Denison to offset a loss to Jefferson. Top attraction in the Coon Valley will be the Bayard invasion of Man ning. Each team has one loss in loop play. Exira is expected to get past Guthrie Center and Glidden-Ralston should handle Coon Rapids in the Homecoming battle at Glidden Manilla will be at Scranton and a Manilla victory looms in that test.

Jubilant Los Angeles Dodgers swarm around rcllof pitcher Larry Sherry (center, left, smiling) after lie halted White Sox In another outstanding relief performance. Dodgers won series In six games with a 9-3 victory. (NEA Telephoto) Sherry Brilliant in Relief- in Series By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)—The Los Angeles Dodgers are the world champions of baseball today. They beat the Chicago White Sox 9-3 Thursday in the sixth game of the World Scries — and they did it in Chicago's Comiskey Park. The Dodgers' victory, behind right-h a n d e r Larry Sherry smashed the hopes of the White Sox, which had soared when the Chicago team scored a 1-0 come back triumph Tuesday in the Los Angeles Coliseum, returning the Scries to their home ground. The Dodgers got rid of the best in the way of pitching the Sox had to offer, chasing burly Early Wynn early and sending Dick Donovan off in close pursuit. It was only the second world championship in 10 tries for the Dodgers, their first since shifting to Los Angeles from Brooklyn two years ago. Both championship teams have been managed by Walt Alston, who has led the Dodgers to three pennants in his six years.

This Dodger victory, making Ihem the first ever to rocket from seventh place one year to the world championship the next, is Hie National League's fourth in rix years over the American. The AL still leads in the over-all standings, however, 35-21. The Dodgers, whose two defeats vere shutouts, started rumbling against Wynn in the third in the finale when Duke Snider sent a 400-foot home run into the lower le(t-center-field seats with a man on Wynn Derricked Wynn, the first game winner at n-0. got as far as the fourth inning in his third start of the series. The big right-hander showed quick signs of wildness. He gave way when Dodger southpaw Johnny Podres walloped an RBI double to center. That brought in right - hander Donovan, whose brilliant relief performance in Los Angeles had saved the fifth game for the Sox. This time, he gave up a walk to Junior Gilliam, a two-run double by Charlie Ncal and a two-run homer by Wally Moon. That made it a six-run inning, the Dodgers' largest ever in a series, and led to a string of six Sox pitchers, No. 5 was Billy Pierce, the experienced little southpaw. Series Hero There is no doubting the big man of the series. At 24, Sherry proved a cool, careful right- handed reliever. He was in on each of the Dodgers' four victories. In all, he worked 12 2-3 innings in the four games, giving up eight hits and just one run while walking but two and striking out five in the series — first ever without a complete game pitcher on either club. The Sox, a tight defensive club that made the most of its opportunities to win its first pennant in •10 years, were unsettled by the Coliseum, where the whlte-shlrted, three-game crowd of 277,550 provided a poor background for fielders and hitters alike. But Manager Al Lopez figured the best way to say what beat his Sox was "Sherry and Neal. They were the difference.' Neal, the thin thumper whfl plays second base, led both clubs with 10 hits and batted .370. He won the second game with two home runs. Personal Triumph as Alston Stops Critics By JOE REICHLER CHICAGO (AP) — You could never tell it by the calm manner in which he was accepting congratulations and by the serious eJmost solemn look on his rounc face that the happiest man in the Dodgers' dressing room was Walter Alston. The Dodgers' World "Series sue cess, capping their pennant vie tory, was in many ways a person al triumph for this kindly, good- natured, shy, Ohioan who, after .six seasons of big league manag ing, ' finally has convinced his hard-bitten critics that he is high ly capable leader. "From a personal standpoint (his would have to be my greatest Triumph, at least the most satisy- ing," he said slowly, choosing uvury word. "Winning the Worlc Scries with the Dodgers back in 1955 gave me a big thrill. At the time it was the greatest. After ail, it was only my second year of managing, and it was the first world championship ever won by Brooklyn. "But the Dodgers of '55 were a great team. They were, more or kiss, expected to win. We won 20 of our first 22 games and won the pennant by some 13'is games. I don't want to take anything away from either of the teams but 1 Uiink this team has given me a greater kick.
