it was Bobby Layne’s presence

Atwell to Cecil Woolbright and
Jim Pinkerton and a 10 yard
dash by fullback Dick Frantz

there. Pete Land’s placement
was good for the extra point.
A second Gamecock march
carried from the South Carolina
18' to the Newberry three but
Witt, the Indians’ big star, in
tercepted an Atwell pass on his
goal line and sprinted 100 yards
for Newberry’s lone score.

Yanks Have Enough World Series Pitching,
And Newsom . Of All Peo pie, May Open It
By HARRY GRAYSON
NEA Sports Editor
NEW YORK, Sept. 00 (NEA).
— For awhile there people were
wondering who Bucky Harris
was going to start in the World
Series before finishing with Joe
Page.
When Smoky Joe Page hopped
the bullpen fence to slam the
door in the Indian’s faces the
other afternoon, it marked the
35th time in the last 51 games
that a Yankee starting pitcher
failed to be on the premises at
the windup.
Spud C h a n d ler appears
through with a deposit in his an
cient elbow.
Floyd Bevens’ shoulder was
tied up.
Allie Reynolds had a bad knee
early in the going. Then the Ok
lahoma City right-hander tight
ened up high in the shoulder.
When this ailment was dissipat
ed, he tired in the late innings.
Spec Shea went out with a
pulled tendon in his elbow.
Randy Gumpert experienced a
bit of arm trouble at the outset,
and then simply didn’t have suf
ficient stuff .to get the other
blokes out. Big Karl Drews will
be a corking right-hander some
day. Young Don Johnson did not
live up to his promise. Some
suspect that his quick arrival in
the majors went to his head.
For a spell there about all the
Yanks had to offer in the pitch
ing department were young Vic
Raschi, recalled from the Port
land Coasters, and old Bo
bc Newsom, acquired from the
Senators, in mid-July.
Raschi broke in with a sorely
needed winning streak, has turn
ed in an excellent competitive
game all along. Newsome has
been a lifesaver.
At 39, Newsom hasn’t the fire
ball and curve that enabled him
to win 21 while losing only 5 wjth
an earned-run average of 2.83
for Detroit in 1940, but he can
still pump that thing through
there and break of a
snappy hook. Why, the blustery
old codger had an earned-run
figure of 2.92 with the Athletics
and Senators in 1946.
Pitching savvy and unlimited
courage and brass complement
what stuff Newsom has left.
After talking with man
ager Harris about him, this ob
server wouldn’t be at all sur
prised if Newsome opened the
World Series for the Bombers.
In that way, Harris would use
his rubber arm in three games,
as Del Baker did in the 1940
show, when Newsom won two,
Bucky Walters and the Keds in
the finale only because Dick
Bartell suffered a mental lapse
handling a relay from the out
field, which permitted Frank
McCormick to score the tying
run.
Newsom is at his best strutt
ing before huge crowc^s on big
occasions, and Harris can
be depended upon to take full
advantage of this.
Bevens’ shoulder is no longer
tied up. Reynolds is as sound
as the Chase National Bank.
Shea’s arm is free again, and
Wensloff is in form.
Harris considers Newsom,
Shea, Bevens, Reynolds. Raschi
and Wensloff World Series pitch
ers, rates Page the slickest, fire
man in the business.
