1 Tues'day, July 10, 195« 1 Murray-Go-Round By TOM MURRAY Relies On Lefties In Ail-Star Game- HaijfnwH 'Svai 1 Bobby. ACC Puts Lee In Bix« OLIVER JACKSON, a long-faced man with a most tin-Hollywood name, Friday came through with tha most dramatic Baytown move since Wally Wilson's state-championship mile-relay finish in 1955. The sad-eyed Abilene Christian track mentor, producer of Bobby Morrow the world's new "fastest human," has confirmed he will bring his team to the first collegiate running of Beverly Rockhoid's Lee Relays next spring. As Nelson McElroy, Chamber of Commerce Director, put it, "We're in business now." With Morrow, almost a certainty to win both Olympic dashes in Melbourne this fall, the meet has instantly become a virtual success. No greater drawing card ever existed than this magnificently geared San Benito streak, a man who's conquered the mystery of relaxation in flight. In his second year of collegiate competition, Morrow became the first double Olympic-trial winner since Jesse Owens. He tied the 10.2 world 100-meter record three times, the American 200 meter mark, 20.6, on two occa- »ions and repeatedly flirted with globe-records in both the 100 and 220-yard dashes. Called the finest sprinter in modern history by no less an authority than Brutus Hamilton, 1952 U. S. Olympic Coach, Morrow will race to the delight of what should be a packed Memorial Stadium next spring, 1 right here in Baytown. Congratulations to Rockhold, Robert E. Lee officials and the Chamber of Commerce Athletic Committee who've come up with the big fish in their quest fd-r one of the nation's finest collegiate track carnivals to go along .with the annual blue-ribbon high school meet Negotiations continue with the University of Texas and Baylor with acceptances already in tha hopper. s from TCU and Texas Tech. Jackson's Got More'n Morrow- Ol' Casey Is Tired Of Losing By LEO H. PETERSEN United Press Sports Editor WASHINGTON (UP)— Casey Stengel, who is "getting: a little tired of losing these things every year," planned to go all out in left-handed 1 pitching platooning today in the 23rd renewal oi the major league All-Star game in Griffith Stadium. "Yes sir, I'm going to give thorn more left-handers than they'll want to see," he said with a grin, adding quickly, "that is if those guys don't pound 'cm too hard to make me change my mind." The Yankee pilot, skippering his sixth All-Star American League squad, named Billy Pierce of the White Sox as his starter and it everything goes according to plan, will finish up with his own Whltey Ford and the Indians' Herb Score. "Maybe those left-handers can even things up a bit for me," Stengel, who has lost four of his previous five AH-Star games, said. Walter Alston, manager of the world champion Dodgers who will pilot the National League, named Bob Friend of the Pirates to oppose Pierce. He is expected to follow Friend with southpaw Warren Spahn of the Braves and Robin Roberts, o£ the Phillies, who has started for the National League five of the last six years. The selection of Pierce, a 13- game winner, and Friend, who has won 11, were surprising bo- cause Friend pitched Saturday and Pierce on Sunday, when the Tigers knoeked him out of the box in five and two-thirds Innings. Ford and Roberts, on the other hand, have had their full quota of rest. But the rival managers apparently figured that so long as a pitcher can go only three Innings —unless the game goes into extra inning's — Uiey would lead with the pitchers they considered their best. Pierce always has been effective against the Yankees and Stengel long has regarded him as one of the best in the business. The Pittsburgh right liander has beaten Alston and his Dodgers three times this season without a lo,?s while they have beaten Roberts the last three times he hns faced them. Alston originally leaned toward Joe Nuxhall of the RevUoRs as his second hurler. but changed his mind when Nuxhall pitched Sunday against the Cardinals. He would have preferred Nuxhall because "he throws harder than Spahn." If Casey goes along with his planned left-handed pitching diet, Alston is expected to make at least four changes as soon as the rules permit him to do so. Undei* the All-Star regulations, he must start ami play the- men chosen by the fans for three innings, burring injuries. Bu! when those three innings are over, he is expected to substitute Willie Mays of the Giants for Gus Bell of the Rodlegs in center field, Hank Aaron of the Braves for Stan Musinl of the Cardinals in right field, Ted Klus- xewski of the Recilegs for Dale Long of the Pirates at first base, and Ernie Banks of the Cubs for Roy McMillan of the Redlegs at shortstop. That: figures to give him more power against left handed pUdung. Stengel, too. planned changes, but his big concern was for his own star center fielder, Mickey Mantle. Mantle injured his right knee playing against the Red Sox last week but returned to part-time action Suiulnv. "Yon ')Ct the knee hurts him," Stengel ikl. "I'm not even sure he'll p' • today. Yeah, I put him in the starting lineup but that don't mean a thing. I'll have to watch him in practice. If I see he can't make it, I'l put in that other fella." That "other fella" is Jim Pier- sail of the Red Sox. Should Piersall start, Stengel indicated he would change his batting order, but did not indicate in what way. Even though Mantle's status is questionable. the A m eric a n League, which has won only on» of the last five games, was installed a 7-5 favorite. The game Ls scheduled to start nt I p.m. EOT. It will be radio broadcast over the Mutual Net work and televised by NBC. The forecast called for clear and Co--' weather, with a capacity U'.ong of approximately 30,000 assured. Should a postponement be necessary the alternate times in order are H p.m. tonight, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday or any time Wednesday afternoon if the weather should clear. 13RunsOn13Hih- LL Yankees Clip Giants PERISH the thought, if you've surmised Morrow is Pall Jackson's rounded up at the Abilene institution JR-of higher learning, "In Paul Johnson, sixth-place winner in the NCAA half- : mile, ACC has a youngster capable of dippirtg under 1:50 in his specialty, and James Segrest was one'of the country's better 220 men.

The big clash follows by one night a brilliant pitcher's duel staged by Lefty Jimmy Epperson and George Laird as the surprising Kiwanis Braves administered a second consecutive defeat to Cab Galloway's first-half Junior League Champion Lion Cubs. Epperson, wily little port-sider, shaded Laird in one of the best pitched ball games in Optimist Teen-Ajje League play this summer. Not only did he pick up the pitching victory, but Epperson went thrce-for-three and scored the winning run On Trey Barsalou's long two-run triple down the right-field line in the sixth.
