Lions And Eagles Ready For Game At Little Rock Bj CAM, BELL » Little Rock - (fi - The golden slipper will be on the other foot when the Detroit Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles square off in a professional football exhibition game in War Memorial Stadium here tonight. Two years ago, the Eagles strutted into Little Rock as two-time world champions, well slocked viith seasoned talent, and romped to a 49-24 victory over a young, rebuilding band of Lions. Since then most of the mightj "old Eagles" have aged them selvet out of the game, their posi- Indians Beat Yanks, 6-4, To Gain Lead In tioiu filled by rookies. And Detroit's youths of 1950 have become the stars of the Nationa League -- such adept operators as Doalc Walker, Bobby Laynr and Leon Hart. Detroit was knocked out of the NFL title in the final four minutes of the 1951 season and is one of the teams to be reckoned with most seriously this year. II they're superstitious, the Lions should be happy to be playing here. Twice in the past three years, one of the teams in the Little Rock exhibition has gone on to win the world pro title -- Philadelphia in 1949 and Los Angeles last year. Detpite predicted 80 - degree - plui heat, tonight's encounter-the earliest football game ever played in Arkansas-- should be a wide open spectacle. In the Lions' Layne and the Eagles' Adrian Burk, B6bby Thomason and Fred- Enke, the game will have a good supply of passing artists. Walker and Hart of Detroit and Eagles Pete Pihos and Bob Walston, the rookie of the year in '51, are among the best receivers in the business. By RALPH KODEV , , Associated preM Sports Writer The 4 Cleveland Indians are in first place, firmly convinced they will win the 1952 American League pennant. One reason for their bright outlook on life stems from the fact they have conquered- one of their chief stumbling blocks of the past --beating the New York Yankees in the Yankee Stadium.

Note, among other things, jthat the American League, that old- time sluggers paradise, now seems to be producing more close thrillers than the National, which once prided itself on that brand of en- very shaky pitching staff. There were long j stretches where the f r e s h m a n ; manager had to use practically | every pitcher on his squad in re- ! lief duty, but it paid off in a lot of those 28 one-run wins. That was, incidentally, exactly the total won by the Cards all last season, j Al Lopez of the Indians also has i not been backward about throwing ' his starting aces in these to hold a lead in the late innings. He even received some criticism for th'us squandering his stars, but the figures vindicate his judgment.

There is beginnlnc ti be some loose talk about them f i l l i n g In for the Giants as this year's miracle team if there's a vacancy.
