White Sox Interested in Robinson if Dodgers Fail To Get Him to Take Cut By MILTON HICHMAN United Press Sport* Writ»r The Brooklyn Dodgers are trying to get Jackie Robinson to hold «till for a $7,00X3 salary slice, but Some of Top Cage Teams See Action Over Weekjnrf By JOHN GRIFFIN Unttwl Prtti Sports Writer Utah and Stanford, two high- ranked teams which have battled back from earlier reverses, are favored to score important victo- ies tonight to further their quest for a berth in one of the postseason tournaments. Utah, now rated No. 12 in the nation, plays host to 17th-ranked Oklahoma City Ln a. non-league tussle while Stanford, which shares the No. 17 spot, visits Oregon State in a key Pacific Coast Conference clash. Utah had disastrous "bad spell" during the Christmas holidays, losing three of four games played in the Kentucky and Sugar T,wl tournaments. But those are the only losses on the Redskins' slate and now they've battled back for five straight wins. What's more important, the Utes top the Skyline Conference with a 5-0 mark to Brigham Young's 3-0. The conference champ goes into ths NCAA tournament and the runner-up is virtuaLK certain of a bid to the National Invitation Tournament in New York. Stanford would be unbeaten in 11 games except for a stunning upset by Washington on Jan. 6, but the Indians shook off their nrog- giness and have won three straight since then. That lone loss forces the Indians to trail UCLA in the Pacific Coast Conference race for a bowl berth, and UCLA doesn't play again until J a n . 28. Stanford must win four games through that date, starting with tonight's, to itay within striking range. Holy Cross, ranked 13th nationally, will be trying for its seventh Straight win and 13th in 15 f a m e s tonight against American International. And Iowa State, which also ·hares the 17th ranking, will be trying for its 10th win in 13 games against Drake in another f e a t u r e . Two other Pacific Coast Conference games tonight are Oregon- Idaho and Washington St.Washing- ton. One of the slimmest court pro- frams of the season was offered Thursday night, due to mid-year examinations. In feature?, Texas A k M crushed Sam Houston St., 75-46; Colgate downed Cornell, 76- ·2; and M a n h a t t a n trounced Atlel- phi, 90-76. if they are unsuccessful, the Chicago White Sox, among other clubs have indicated they'll be glad to take him off their hands. Robinson huddled an hour with Brooklyn Vice-Prcsident Buzzy Bavasi Thursday but failed to come to terms. The Dodgers then said that they and the 36-year old Robtoy "are not too far apart." But that's the same thing they said two weeks ago. There have been repeated question as to whether Robinson would play ball again this year and to all those question* he has replied, "That depends on the contract I get." He received an estimated $40,000 last year. Brooklyn, well fixed bas* with Ransom Jackson, who was obtained from the Cubs, and also loaded with seven left field candidate.?, Is not exactly in dire need of Robinson, despite his .314 lifetime batting average. An official of the White Sox hai admitted they tried to get Robinson late last year but Brooklyn could not get him out of the National League on waivers. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh reportedly alio are interested in Robinson even though the .256 average he compiled last season was his worst in the majors. Robinson is anxious to get ii- his 10th year in the big leagues and the Dodgers claim they are oager to have him with them.

( U P ) -- M a r v i n Bass, a much-traveled assistant football coach, has been signed as a line coach at the University of South Carolina.

"It possibly was one of the best rounds I ever shot in my life," he said later. "This is a superior course. It was a m u c h better round than the 60 I scored in Texas last year." In U.S. cash this is a $12,500 tournament -- but the 156,000 price on the spectators' tags looks mighty enticing to the touring professionals. Thu course measured 6,800 yards Thursday -- longer than most championship courses. And it will be 7,207 for the final round on Sunday which makes it one of the longest lay-outs in N o r t h America.

( U P ) -- For the first time in its Mstory, the Greater C l e v e l a n d High School Football Coaches Association will have a basketball l e c t u r e r at its annual clinic, scheduled April 7. He is Paul Walker, wise-cracking coach from K e n t u c k y who has directed Middletown High School to four Class A schoolboy titles in 10 years. Walker, making b a s k e t b a l l a 12- month a year business, appeared headed for another title this season with a team which has won 10 straight. . At the seventh clinic of the association, Walker \\Ul join Terry Brennan, Notre Dame's grid coach, on the speakers' platform. "I've got a pretty good ball club," reported Walker today in a typical tongue-in-check understatement. "We're capable of being terrific. I've been h a v i n g myself .some fun." Walker has a big team, topped by 6-8 Jerry Lucas. They all can run, too, as all Middletown teams m u s t run to please the perfectionist pilot. Lucas, "the first big boy I've ever had," according to Walker, has scored 253 points in 10 straight wins. Vic Wertz Ready to Make Comeback With Cleveland ·y LLOYD NORTHARD MT. CLEMENS, Mich. (UP) -Vic Werti, Cleveland's slugging first b a s e m a n who was stricken with polio late last season, said today he's "fit as a fiddle" and ready to m a k e a strong comeback. "f've j u s t got a hunch that this is going to be a good year," the b a l d i n g Wertz said. "After all, 1 had more t h a n my share of bad breaks last season." . The 30-year-old Wertz, who was the b a t t i n g star of the 1954 World Series although his Indians lost four straight games to the New U.S. Skaters Get Nod From Experts CORTTNA, Italy (UP) -- Experts w a t c h i n g America's smooth figure skating squad at practice today predicted it would win five Olympic medals -- including one by ·njured Tenley Albright. They said the U.S. would take the first three places in the men's events and the first two in the ladies' events. The predictions were m a d e despite an injury suffered Thursday by pretty Miss Albright, the world figure skating c h a m p i o n f r o m Newton, Mass., who cut her right leg while working out. She is expected to be out of action only four or five days. York Giants, was stricken with polio Aug. 27 and misied Cleveland's spirited but futile stretch bid for a second straight American League pennant. "We were leading the league by half a game when I came down with polio," Wertz said. "And I like to think I could have helped the Indians during September. My batting average was only .253 but I vas hitting at about a 300 clip during August." Wertz was quick to point out that polio wasn't his only shortcoming last season. "1 had a Jammed t h u m b that put me out for a few weeks," he said. "I also missed a few games with a stiff neck." The non-paralytic polio sent Wertz to the hospital for 20 days but it wasn't until late last month that he received a clean bill of health from his doctors. Final Examination "That was my final examination," Wertz said. "The doctors told me there was nothing that would keep me from playing baseball this season." Wertz, who is a regional distributor for a local brewery during the off-season, said he figures the Indians will be in the thick of the pennant fight again this year. "We've still got the pitching," he said, "and I think Al Rosen, Hobby Avila and I will do a little better at the plate.

Howe Puts Wings Back in NHL Race By UNITED P R E S S The Detroit Red Wings, buried in the National Hockey L«ague standings through most of the first h a l f of the season, were back in contention today and it took Gor- ciie Howe, one of the smoothest skaters in the loop, to get ttrem there. The Red Wings, NHL champions for seven straight seasons, have been climbing steadily in the standings and today were poised only two points back of the second- place New York Rangers. Howe scored a three-goal "hat trick" Thursday night to help the Red Wings d e f e a t the last-place Boston Bruins, 4-2, »nd he picked up an assist in Detroit's fourth goal. However, the Red Wings still trail th« first-place Montreal C n n a - diens, who dowoned Toronto, 3-1, by 12 points. Howe picked up two goals In the first period and added his third in third.

I'm only seven or eight pounds over my playing weight and I feel fit as a fiddle." Turner Wants Decisive Victory SYRACUSE, N.Y. (UP)--Middleweight Gil Turner of Philadelphia craves a decisive victory tonight over handsome Jackie Labua of East Meadow, N.Y., who proved a Tartar on Dec. 14 and put Gil out of action for a m o n t h . Turner Ls favored at 14-5 to beat Jackie in their return TV-radio 10- roundcr because of his experience and harder punch and because Jackie is fighting as a substitute. In their Dec. 14th TV fight in the same War Memorial Auditor- iir", Turner had to be content with a majority decision. The referee called it a draw, but the two judges voted for Gil- It was a costly victory because Turner s u f f e r e d cuts on both brows and had to w i t h d r a w from a bout with Gene Fullmer of West Jordan, Utah, scheduled for M a d i s o n Square Garden on Jan. 5. Turner and Fullmer were rematched later for tonight at the auditorium. However. Fullmer suffered a vir s infection and had to pull out. Labua was immediately brought in as the substitute. Turner's 49-10-1 record includes 33 knockouts. He was stopped three times. Labua's, 25-7-0 list includes only three kayocs. He was stopped once. Helland Crusades For Nationwide Boxing Cleanup NEW YORK (UP)--Julius Helfand, apparently victorious in New York State, was openly crusading for a nation-wide clean-up of the fight game today by demanding that the National Boxing Association's executive committee end its ''sheer hypocrisy." Chairman Helfand's New York State Athletic Commission is not a member of the NBA; but he challenged its executive committee to repeal last Saturday's Chicago recommending resolution that would permit fighters to sign their own contracts for bouts even though their managers had been suspended or unlicensed in other states. Helfand delivered his blistering challenge at Thursday night's annual dinner of the Boxing Writers Assn., on the same dais with Lou Radzienda of Chicago, president of the NBA. Fiery Julius declared that Saturday's own-signing resolution "nullified" two other Saturday resolutions that would have supported the N.Y. state .ban against the N.Y. Boxing Guild and would have "provided the happiest day in boxing history." One resolution recommended that NBA states require a promoter matchmaker, manager, b o x e r t r a i n e r or second to be licensed in his home state before obtaining a license in another. The second called on "every slate in the country" to uphold any suspension, revocation or denial of a license in anv other state.

Controversy Over Rams Continues LOS ANGELES (UP)--The controversy over m a n a g e m e n t of the Los Angeles Rams pro football club was deadlocked today with m a n a g i n g partner Dan Reeves' rejection of the majority stockholders' o f f e r to settle their differences with him by giving him 50 per cent voting control. "Such an arrangement could be.... extremely detrimental to the best interests of the R a m s " Reeves declared in turning down the offer by Edwin W. Pauley, Col. Fred Levy Jr. and Hal Seley who own 66 2-3 per cent of the stock in the club. "While it is true t h a t collectively these gentlemen have a 66 2-3 per cent interest in the Rams," Reevos said, "they became partners at my invitation with the u n d e r s t a n d - ing and concurrence that the operation of the Rams be under my active direction. "My partners have now notified me t h a t they are willing to accord me a 50 per cent interest in policy matters. Actually, they wish to assume a 50 per cent voice in all chases of Ram business " he added. The majority partners said their proposal would give Reeves veto power and that it was in the interest of harmony and in an effort to reach an amicable settlement of the controversy. Reeves replied such an arrangement would raise "the probability of stalemates developing on m a n y matters vital to the successful operation of the football team." By OSCAR FRALEY NEW YORK (UP)--There are indication! today that the 'dock is ticking a requiem for Stan Musial's hopes of matching Honus Wagner's record eight national league batting championships. "The man" still should rank in 1956 as one of the really- great hitters. Even though he will be play- j ing his 15th season in Cardinal livery, and it has been 19 years since he broke into organized baseball, Musial still is the league's top salaried star. But the signs are t h a t th«* ix- time batting champion may not even m a t c h Rogers Hornsby's seven titles. Not that, at 36, Stan is through or even shows signs of. being washed up. The odds are that with his eyes and reflexes he'll be able to bust .300 when he's pressing 45. Yet, as in football, it's those last 20 points like the final 20 yards which are the toughest. And there is another factor. Most Battered Hirttr "n 1955, Stan was struck by more pitched balls than any other National League hitter. In the years before, it was a rarity when he was hit because they tried to keep it outside and away from him. The obvious deduction is that now, while they still have a vast respect for his hitting, they are takng adv a n t a g e of a slipping something to brush him back and "work on him." This is a man whose lifetime batting average is a phenomenal .342. He won batting titles wth some lavish marks, including a .376 season. But in the past three seasons his marks h a v e dropped from .337 to .330 to .318. Sure, most any other hitter in the league aside from the two who bested him last season -- namely Richie Ashburn and Wilhe M a y s --would be glad to do so good. Yet for a telling three-year span the old heights have eluded him and last year's average was hi? lowest since a near-bursting appendix cut him to .312 in 1947. Six years ago, Stan began looking downhill toward the end of the line when he predicted "I've four or five good seasons left." Whittled At G r a v c y i r d It showed on his mind in 1953 when he whistled at the graveyard by asserting t h a t "age is not as important as condition.'' And last s p r i n g , h e figured that "I should 14 Indians in Fold for 1956 CLEVELAND, 0. (UP) -- Cleveland announced today it has 14 players back in the fold for the 1956 campaign with the signing of pitcher Jose Santiago and infielder Bobby Young. Santiago was used as a reliefer during the 1955 season, appearing in 17 games and getting credit for two victores. He is currently pitching in the Puerto Rican Winter League. Baltimore, Cleveland and Indianapolis shared Young's services last year. He began with the Orioles and then went to Cleveland in i deal last summer. From there he was optioned to. Indianapolis. He hit .366 in 34 games while in' the minors. ' OMIOAH LOS IS NEW YORK (UP) - Hard? Smallwood, 157, Brooklyn, won a unanimmis eight - round decision over Lou Stanich, 157, Youngstown, Ohio, Thursday night. have three more good years." That, as of now, leaves two coming up in which, he asserted, "I'm rolling along, hoping for the best." It was significant, one day last summer when he was in the batting cage at the Polo Grounds. The man really laid into lashing line drive. "Ah," he gloated, "that's the way I used to hit 'em." He still may do it, too, if the Cardinals go through with their plan to play him in the outfield and use Wally Moon at first. But such plans, which would permit Stan to give more thought to his hitting, have been frustrated almost annually in the past. Meanwhile, .you find yourself pulling for those two he needs to tie the immortal Wagner. And feeling, deep down inside, that while he'll still be great, he won't quite make it.

Purdue and Michigan were part of a three way tie with Indiana for fourth place, each with three wins in five starts.
