Veteran Cage Tutor Due to Retire Oriole Pitching: Don Larsen Jones Honored NEW YOKK (If)— The Metropolitan Golf Writers' Association of New York will honor Bob Jones, 1930 Grand Slam winner, at its second annual dinner here Jan. 21 at the Waldorf?Astoria. He is the last mon who has been head coach in football and basketball at the same time. He was the top kick in football from 1926 through 1930. By JOE KEICHLER NEW YORK (AP) — Whenever baseball folks discuss the Baltimore Orioles' pitching staff they usually begin with Don Larsen and end with Bob Turley. In between there is a long pause. Unless Bill Dewitt, holdover vice president from the Browns is all wet, the Orioles will have a kid pitcher in spring training camp as good as either Larsen or Turley. The rookie's name is Rinold (Riney) Duren, who toiled in the Texas League last year with San Antonio. leagues next year." 212 Whiff Duren finished the season as the 'Duren Is probably our best pitching prospect in the minors," Dewitt said last June, "He's a strong armed righthander who is averaging a strikeout an inning.

The prize of the entire lot, however, may be a little Mexican eec- ond baseman named Vinicio Garcia. Flashy Fielder Only 23, a flashy fielder and a .305 hitter, Garcia was rated the second baseman In the minor leagues by many well qualified baseball observers. Chuck Dieting, a $15,000 draftee, had a fine season with Minneapolis where he batted .322, dammed 12 homers and drove In 74 null. The former Cardinal and Olant flychaser is 31, however.

By RUSS NEWLAND BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Clarence Merie (Nibs) Price, the little giant of Pacific Coast basektball, rings down the curtain at the end of this season on a 30-year career as head coach at the University of California. The automatic retirement age of 66 will have caught up with Hi* Nibs. One of Price's fondest hopes is that he will produce another player of All America stature to close out his university tenure. His big gun is Bob Matheny, an agile guard who has the qualifications to become a professional star. Matheny stands 5 feet 11 and can do about everything with the ball except.swallow It whole. He's an artist with either hook or outside shots both left and right- handed. He sets up plays and is tremendous defensively. Player of Week Because of his sensational performances in the double upset wins over UCLA last weekend, Mathney was named Player of the Week by the Northern California Basketball Writers and Sportscasters As- sn. Saturday night he scored 18 points, passed to another 20, stole the ball twice and put on a defensive show. Price has been coaching at California in some capacity since 1919.
