FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1933 Oklahoma Miler Is Hypochondriac NORMAN, Okla. ft - Bntce (Bulldog) Drummond, Oklahoma's crack miler who lied the record at the Texas Relays with 4:12.3, needs a "whole drug store" to get started. That's the word of Crummond's coach, John Jacobs, who confided: "Bulldog wears fitted arch sup. ports in hii track shoes and rubs himself down with an old pepper sauce bottle. "He likes to sniff a liquid inhaler up his nose, nibble on a ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH piece of dextrine, and wear hn running trunks so loose around the waist that they almost fall off Mm, "He takes Ms warrmm exercises in a furnace room. Me keeps Mm* self greased with balm, But he sure gets in there and runs." ftltrea to Mnltl-ORptaM NEW HAVEN, Conn. /P- Wally Kilrea Jr., was named captain of the Yale 1953-64 varsity hockey team recently it marked the fourth time he was elected a Yale team leader.

BROADWAY AT SERING ALTON PAOS fitT1WI Lakers Built Into All- Time Greats by Unknown Coach n,v MiTinAY* NEW YORK-(NEA)-The Mln- neapolis Lakers by now must he recognized as the greatest basketball team of all time. They've just won their fifth world championship in six. years. Yet walk down the street and ask the first 20 people you meet, "Who coaches the Lakers?" The stares will be as vacant as that old corner lot. Better yet, ask the next 1,000, "Who's John Kundla?" The same negative result. Kundla came in with the birth of the Lakers, before fjeorge Mikan was hired, before Minneapolis became the Yankeeland of basketball. No "Water Boy" He Is not, as some have accused, the "dressed up" water boy who sits in on those interminable Laker winning streaks. But In the public mind he is even more of an unknown than Buddy Parker, who coached the Detroit, Lions to the pro football crown. "I'm not looking for any credit," shrugs Kundla. "But the only thing lhat gets me is when people say, 'Well, how can you lose, with guys like Mikan and Jim Pollard?" It takes more than puffing five stars on a floor 1o make a winning team. You've go to fit them into your system, get them to play together." Handling big name stars can be a ticklish proposition. Miller Huggins faced it in the Ruth-Gehrig era. Kundla backs it up with JOHNNY KUNDLA Mikan-Pollard. It's no secret that Jim, the big gun, until Mikan came along, wasn't too happy about being cast in the shadow. Mikan for his part has been known to utter occasional grunts that Pollard wouldn't pass Ihe ball in to him. Kundla In Middle In the middle was Kundla, none too secure in his job, second- guessed on losses, never given credit for victories. The. Quiet Man exerted his influence, however, until today there's no doubt who bosses the Lakers. Mikan has become a team player who's suppressed his scoring desires. He'll pass Ihe ball back out of ihe hole. In the championship series against the New York Knickerbockers, Pollard Was his first feeder. Kundln developed a bench. There was a time when if you took Mikan and Pollard out of the game, tho Lakers went to pot. No more. There mice was a time Mikan practically refused to go out of a game. No more. Milrilrr Off Hoard* Minneapolis isn't tho most sptr- lac.ular team to watch, and Kundla's aware of it. The Inkers hnvc ihe three big men - Mikan. Vern Mikkelscn nnd Pollard- and murder the other teams off the hoards They ran'l play fnsl hreak basketball because they're not tailored for it. Kundla likes fast break basketball, was one of the early collegians of play if, under Dave McMillan at Minnesota in the late 1930s. He was the key man on a Gopher team that eame Into Madison Square Garden and broke a Lorn: Island University winning streak of 45. He moved to the Lakers from a coaching job at St. Thomas College in St. Paul. An introvert, Johnny Kundla suffers within himself about the Laker fortunes or misfortunes. He was discharged from the Navy in World War II because, of ulcers. He still get what he calls "gastronomical disturbances." Hmnc, }n times out help to ease them.

"Stephens is so anxious to play this season that 1 have signed him to a provisional contract," says Lane. "He can match his $35,000 salary of 1952 if he plays regularly. "After we Rot Stephens from the Red Sox T asked him 'Mow many Kamos do you think you cnn piny? 1 Td like (o piny them all,' Vernon answered. "Thnl wns my me In sign him on Ihe basis of game's played. He will Ret so much if he plays 100 games, nnd much more if he can play 120 games. On his hasic contract he took a sizable, cut." flit Only .254 Stephens last year played loss than 100 games for the first time in his career which shows 1,090 runs batted in. Hobbled by a bad knee in 19, r >2, he got in 92 games and hit only .254, the lowest; ho ever hit. Though only 32, Stephens, is very slow afoot. "We (Manager Paul Richard and Lane) Ihink his bat will replace that of Ed Robinson who was traded to the A's for Ferris Fain," says the man who has traded $2,500,000 in players the last few years. "Stephens is aJflOO.OOO player to us, even though ne must beat out' Rocco Krshlch for the third base post. "When he plays he gives us a million dollar Infield with Fain on first, Nelly Fox on second, and Cbico Carrasquel on short." Lane, n winter resident of St. Petersburg, stopped off here for a few days before heading for the White Sox training base in California. Prnhtatn at Short "Much depends on shortstop," says Lane. "Carrasquel missed nine weeks because of a broken finger. I have a contract with him on weight problems and in order to make more money he must be under 175 pounds in mid-season, I can't speak Spanish hut T know Ihe Vene/iielan understands (moneyi, and he loves it. "The Yankees didn't win the pennant on hitting, they won it by their defense. That's why we got Fain. He's a groat fielder and fine batter and great on the hit and run play." The White Sox won only 8 of 22 games with the Yankees last year when they finished third, 14 games back of Ihe champions. "We were second at All Star Game lime last July," says Lane, "and I Ihink we'll make a better run for the pennant, this season. That Stephens deal could be a big one for us. And Fain—well, we offered the A's $.100,000 for him (cash and-or players) two years ago."
