Teams Begin to Set Starting Lineups as Drills Continue Eft I PAY, AUG. 24, 1962, Uke Charles American Press. if The starting lineups have begun to take shape in two of Calcasieu parish's Class AAA f o o t- ball camps, while many of the starting jobs are wide open in the other. The starting 11 at LaGrange appears almost set after an important position change by coach Jimmy Austin Thursday, while coach Jack Doland reports only two positions unsettled at Sulphur. Lake Charles coach Roy Collins, on the other hand, states that things are still wide open in the Wildcat camp. The big news Thursday was the announcement that John Demarie has been moved from fullback and returned to his position at guard, where the big 210-pounder excelled last season. making the transition of Demarie to a fullback unnecessary. This latest switch will serve to add speed both to the backfield and to the line. As a result, Gary Guins will move to fullback to back up regular Rusty Fry, while the halfbacks will come from a group of swifties that includes James McGee, Ancel Wilkinson, Wayne Savoy and John Delaney. The fast-developing Tors are Meanwhile, Sam Houston coach two deep everywhere else. i Glenn Williams displayed a def- Collins reported that the Lake Charles gridders were still giving a fine effort as they battled for several still-unfilled positions on the first unit.

Both Landry and DeQuincy used Thursday to point toward a Friday scrimmage against an out- ide foe. Landry coach Jim McNally sent his crew through a light workout orientated toward play tming in preparation for Invad- ng Lake Arthur, while at DeQuin- cy, more or less the same procedure was followed on the eve of a meeting with Merryville. Coach Billy Lantrip listed only two positions, an end and a guard, as being open on the starting De- Quincy eleven. "For the first time this year, we were dragging," complained West Lake boss Talmadge Core allowing his Thursday workout. 'We tried to scrimmage a bit, but the kids just wouldn't go all out." Offutt in Finals Chennault battled its way into the finals of the Second Air Force Baseball tournament the hard way Thursday night, coming through the loser's bracket to eliminate Barksdale 11-5 at the Dixie Boys Finals Are Sef Tonigfif WEST MONROE, La. (AP) Unbeaten Birmingham, Ala., plays once-defeated Pcnsacola, Fla., tonight in finals of the Dixie Little Boys baseball world series. It's a double elimination tourna- mdct and the two teams will play again Saturday if Pcnsacola wins. Birmingham moved into the title round by eliminating Chattanooga, Tcnn., 4-2, Thursday night. Billy Mullins pitched a two- for Bama, and Steve Miller belted a home run with nobody aboard for Chattanooga. Pensacola knocked Rossville, Ga., the defending champions, out of the tourney by crushing them, 11-2 Thursday night. Ronnie Lane belted a grand slam homer in the first to get Pensacola off to a flying start. Chennault diamond. The victory sends the once-beaten SACers against unbeaten Offutt Friday in a 4 p.m. game that rates in the "must" category for Chennault. Even should the SACers win, they would have to come back and beat Offutt again on Saturday to win the double-elimination affair. A pair of key doubles and the clutch pitching of Rene Miller were the highlights of the Chennault victory. The first of these blows, coming off the bat of center fielder •loe Bazar with the sacks full in the first inning, plated two runs and set the stage for two more in a four-run frame that had the local team off and wining. Miller, himself, struck the second two-base clout, this one cleaning the bulging sacks as a climax to a five-run fourth frame. On the mound, Miller stayed in hot water most of the night, giving up 10 hits and five walks. But 11 strikeouts, most of them in key situations, enabled him to leave 13 Barksdale runners hanging on the sacks and keep the Bossier City team from scoring until the seventh inning. Miller's 11 whiffs gives him a total of 25 for the two tournament games in which he has worked. Although Chennault was outhit in the game, 10-8, the SACers were materially aided by six Barksdale miscues afield. Arthur Krueger and Bazar led the way for the SACers with two hits each, while Larry Wright was the Barksdale batting leader with three hits in five trips. LOSERS' BRACKET (Final!) Barksdale ..

Coach Ray Keever pointed to tackle Percy Sweeton and end Roger Bartee for their fine line work, while halfback Johnny Breaus continued to draw praise for his running. Keever learned that an ankle injury to Lionel Landry was not serious and that the quarterback will be able to work with the team. Iowa experienced a brisk, hard scrimmage of some 45 minutes) duration, and the Yellow Jackets were proclaimed "good and tired" following the session by coach Joe Foreman.

NOTES FROM HERE AND AROUND: * * * JIMMY CURRIE. FORMER Sulphur high school and American Legion baseball standout, has signed a pro baseball contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He will be assigned to Burlington, Iowa, in the Three I league. . * * * LOCAL FANS MAY HAVE seen the last of Charles (Cotton) Nash, the big youngster who performed basketball miracles at Lake Charles High and then moved on to the University of Kentucky. Nash's father, Frank, has been transferred to Leominster, Mass., by Dupont. The Hashes came here in 1959 and took up residence in Lake Charles because Texas athletic rules would have required Cotton to lay out of athletics for a full season. The elder Nash has commuted to Orange, Texas, during the family's stay here. Cotton was a frequent visitor here during the past summer and played baseball with Chennault Air Force base's crack team, but will probably spend the off- seasons in New England in the future. * * * USL'S ENGLISH IMPORT, Malcolm Robinson, recently posted a 9:07.6 two-mile in the Dean Cromwell track meet at Culver City, California. Robinson, a Londoner who ran for USL last spring, is expected to spark the Bulldog cinder squad again in 1963. * * * ONE OF SHREVEPORT'S major leaguers, pitcher Seth Morehead, will retire after suffering a mild heart attack early this month. The former Byrd high star, 28, was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies in 3952 and has hurled for the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Braves. He was stricken August 3 pitching a SVa-inning relief stint for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and physicians advised him to give up baseball. * * * PAUL DIETZEL APPARENTLY failed to impress at least one Pelican State footballer at West Point. Former Bossier City star Rogers Reinowski has left the Military Academy and plans to enroll at Baylor, to study law. Another Louisiana product, Bucky Bovenzi, also moved to Baylor after failing a West Point physical exam because of a minor eye defect. * * * NORTHEAST STATE COLLEGE is still adding athletes at a wild pace. The most recent acquisitions are a four-sport star from Winnfield and four North Louisiana basketball stars. Mike Tinerello, who starred in football, basketball, track and baseball at Winnfield, turned down a scholarship at USL to enroll at Northeast but has hopes of picking up a baseball scholarship at the Monroe school. He is also considering trying out for the football squad. The cagers are Truette Nolan and Butch Cerniglia of NeviUe, Reggie Page of Jonesboro-Hodge and Lawson Swearingen of Ruston. Swearingen and Page are 6-6, Nolan and Cerniglia 6-1. * * * USL WASN'T SHUT OUT in the continuing chase, however. The Bulldogs have signed four more base- bailers—three pitchers and a shortstop. The intielder is Richard Storms of Ruston and the hurlers are Gerald Hebert of Abbeville, Harry Stelly of Opelousas and Jim Frazier of Shreveporl.
