Brooklyn's Run Factory Back On Line By UNITED TKESS It is right once again with the world champion Brooklyn Dodgers, because the run production factory operated by Messrs. Snider and* Campanella is back in business. The Dodgers haven't looked much like "cbampeens" this spring and have been getting:' their lumps pretty regularly in grapc- truit league games. But a 4 to 1 victory over the Chicago White So:: on Sunday could signal the end of such nonsense because: 1. Duke Snider drove in his first run of the spring, a department in which he led tbo major leagues last year with 136. first 'homer of the season, tuning 2. Roy Campanella clouted his up for a shot at another 32-homer season. Both of these events occurred in the opening inning: of the game and virtually ended the contest. But there was still another joyful omen for manager Walt Alston in the shape of a good pitching job by rookie southpaw Ken Lehman. This young- man had been tabbed as the most likely lefty to replace Army-bound Johnny Podres on the Dodger staff, but he flopped in two previous showings and had walked seven batters in four frames. Sunday, however, ho held Ihc Sox rimless for five innings, the longest workout by n Brooklyn Inu'ler this spring, allowed only three bits, and walked only one batter. Tho New York Yankees also arc pleased with the continued good work of a rookie, six-foot five-inch Mark Freeman. This towering young righthand- er, just out of the Army and not officially on the Yank roster, held the Cincinnati Redlegs to no runs and two hits in a four-inning stint in Sunday's -t to 3 victory. With a similar job against the Red Sox on his 1-ist trip to the hill. Freeman now has flipped eight score- bss innings. rr \sttr OFTEM THAT TROUT WILL Meet Russell And Dons-- ; Mustangs Draw Big One In NCAA VWBJT is OVER A SPOT A TV/ITCH of we woo TIP PR££S THE MOOK AMD TME BAIT SlMKS SIOWLY TO THE BOTTOM A LARGE OIL CAM WILL M6LP ^rcxJ CAPTUR& HIM.-CUT AWAY THE TOP AND BOTTOM ASD AJAIL A SeCTlOl OF BKm - SiC*S ATTM6 TOP FORA GRl£ -;..-^U SPOT A FROG, QUICKLY iSlAP TH& -"lOVeRMlM A GOOD ARTIFICIAL BAIT PORPAWFISH CAM SE AWD& WITH RUBBER BA^DS PULL THE BAWDS -THKDUSH TM& © AMD TRIM EHOS @- A UTTL6 OP Trie ROD TIP rTA CRAWUHS ACTION A YEAR* GROWTH By UNITED PRESS San Fran'cisco's brilliance even without All-America K. C. Jones established' the'defending champion Dons Monday as overwhelming favorites over ,the three other survivors "in the NCAA' basketball tournament — SMU, Iowa, and Temple. It will be San Francisco vs. SMU and Iowa. vs. Temple in the semi-finals at Evanston, HI., on Thursday night, with the two "hot" streakers, San Francisco and Iowa, favored; to 'reach the finals. And the defending champion Dons must be'rated heavier favorites than ever to walk away with the top prize, in view of the way they swept through their -first- two games in the tourney-— 72 to 61 over UCLA and 92 to 77 over Utah. The other tourney teams had hopaJ that the loss of Jones through ineligibility as a fourth- year man would make the Dons a much weaker outfit. But soph Gene Brown has stepped capably into Jones' shoes \vith 41 points in the two games to completely wipe out that hope. And All-America Bill Russell, the Don's six-foot 10- inch center, showed that post-season play has dulled none of his sparkle, either. SMU. on the-other hand, had to feht to a one-point win .over Texas Tech before "drubbing- Oklahoma City 84 to 83 at Lawrence, Kan., Sa turds-"- nig-ht. ; And Temple edged Canisius .by only 60 to 58 at .Philadelphia on Hal Lear's pair -of free throws with two seconds to play. Iowa appeared more formidable in downing Kentucky 89 to 77 at Iowa City as Carl Cain tallied 34 points. Each of. these teams emerged as the -winner of the regional tourney to qualify for Thursday's games. SMU coach E. O. (Doc) Hayes frankly admitted'Monday his Mustangs face a "tremendous task" in trying to stop San Francisco and said the main problem was Rus3 sell. "he knocks your shots away from the basket and tips in their shots," Hayes said. "That's a hard man to handle." The job of "handling" Russell probably will fall to six-eight Jim Krebs, and. that Mustang got a vote of confidence Monday from famed Kansas coach Dr. Forrest (Phog) AlIen.The Jawhawk mentor compared Krebs to Clyde Lovellette, the giant who led Kansas to the 1952 NCAA crown and still holds the scoring: record for the tourney. 1 , ,' "He looks like Lovellette, snood with the same feather' touch,' and even lumbers like him," Mid Allen.

Fla. —UP— The Milwaukee Braves feel that 1956 is going to be their year. Almost every . one is talking about the world champion Brooklyn Dodgers when it comes to the National League pennant race, but manager Charley Grimm of the Braves will not go along %vith that. "Man for man. we're as good as they are, and I think even bet- ter," jolly Charley said "We aren't- giving an inch to any club in the league, and that includes Brooklyn'." ; Grimm thinks his ball club is all r?t. ,••••• "We're loaded with pitching, we have the hitting .and we 'have everything, .else, it -takes," he added. " -• • "I think Charley is right." general manager John Quinn pitched in. "But there's a Jot of luck that goes along- with . baseball, and if we get some for a change, we could win it all." SPORTS PARADE ty Oscar FrHey NEW YORK —UP— Ben Hogan is on his way back. That's the word out of the South as the golfing contingent heads, toward the coveted Masters tournament at Augusta, April 5-3. Bantam Ben is getting ready. Which means that when they go at it in what ranks as one of the four top fairway events—including the Open, PGA "and World at Tarn O'Shanter — the little mechanical man is the one they'll have to beat. Bantam Ben probably would be the first to issue a denial. He announced after losing the Open in a playoff to Jack Fleck last year that he was through with "serious" competitive golf. But even Hogan hasn't satisfied all his ambitions. Tho one left for him is the honor of winning the Op«n « record fifth time. Right now he Is tied »t four- all with Bobby Jones Htid the ancient Willie Anderson. Ben wants that fifth which would put him in a class alone. And. according to information seeping North, he's getting ready tor a "serious'' crack at it. Proof is that for more thnn a month, Hogrm has been practicing daily—and ''with all that old. prim attention—at the Srminole Club in Palm Beach. And through his last dozen or so.rounds he hasn't been over 70 on what rates as a right touch golf course. "Not only that," says an informant who has watched him E. Chambers Girls Win Basketballs Coach Luke Honea presented his East Chambers girls' basketball team individual gold basketballs for having: won the junior league with a 20-3 record. The girls receiving awards were Gretchen Short, Linda Dale. Marilyn Thornton, Lydia Devillier, Joyce Stobart. Lillie Mae King, Carol Jones. Florence Stratton.

That^ will be strictly bad news for the rest of the .professional field. Because even without that extra distance, Hogan was a threat any time he ever stepped onto a tee. With, it, he'll be a little bit short of sheer murder. That Open lure,' when they go at it in Rochester, N.Y., come June, is the full answer. Wins Tennis Tourney CANNES, France'— UP — Jacques Brichant, Belgian Davis Cupper, won the men's singles final of the Cannes International tennis tournament Sunday by defeating Antonio Maggi of Italy 6-2, 6-1, 6-3. What he" was referring to was •injuries. For two years now the Braves have been handicapped by 'injuries to their key players. One of them is a question mark right now, pitcher Gene Conley. The six- foot eight-inch right-hander won only 11 games last season because of back and arm miseries. There have been reports that he is through. • But Conley, Grimm and Quinn won't buy those reports. "Gene will be all right," Grimm declared. "He's .only 25 and has had;his share of. tough luck. Maybe that luck book will balance on him. If it does, watch out for us." "We have the pitching—we're loaded with it.—.. the hitting and everything tleso it takes," Grimm declared, adding that his club was set 'at every position except for "a couple of pitching spots." It will be big Joe Adcock and George Crowe at first base: Danny O'Connell, a • disappointment since the Braves obtained him from the Pirates, at second: Johnny Logan at short and homerun-hitting Eddie Mathews at third. Del Crandall is : the No. 1 guy behind the plate with Del Rice the second string catcher.
