Backs Carry Hopes
Os Wilson High Squad
Ifr**-'* ■
For the first time since Pete
Labukas became head football
coach In 1954. Wilson High ap
pears to have a line problem.!
Pete's "stalwart six” up front
last fall has been reduced to a
"stalwart one” by graduation.
Despite a disappointing 3-4-1
record in 1956, Wilson had an
Two More in a Series
exceptional line: a little slow
but big and tough. John Ba
doud is the only rugged one left
over and his 194 pounds will be
used almost constantly at one
of the ends. The rest of the
line has stacked up like this
since practice began last Tues
Dave McKinley. 152 pounds,
has been shifted from halfback
and probably will share the
other end with Cliff Stearns,
only 141, from the Junior
Pollock, Folson Move Up
The tackles should come
from A1 Pollock and Spencer
Folson, both off the junior
varsity, and Prank Coviello, a
newcomer. All three are seniors.
Coviello is the largest at 204
and Pollock next at 194.
Bruce Oreene. 174, broke his
leg in mid-season last year but
brings some experience into the
guard position, helped by Bill
Hanson and Ray Chatfleld
from the jayvee. Jim McMahon,
another senior up from the Jun-1
ior varsity, may get the center
"I've been thinking its the
smallest team I’ve had here.”
Labukas groans, giving some
what of an insight into what
he has been used to.
Backfield Hopes High
But the backfield is a dif
ferent story. That’s where Pete
is given reason to grin. Don
Edlngton and Johnny Luce are
proven performers at quarter
back in the multiple offense*,
although small. Dick Drum
mond is a do-everything half
back with 190 pounds to throw
around. J. B. Hayer played
defense last year but should do
all right both ways at the other
.half. And Duff Oreene. 192-
pound brother of Bruce, will be
a third-year fullback with fine
“With Duff and Drummond
we ought to have a real good
one-two punch.” the coach ad
mits. "Drummond just didn't
have the experience last year.
He should go this time.”
There is versatility as well
as size in the backfield. Luce
and Drummond are the passers.
Drummond is the fastest boy
on the squad. Green is a kicker, j
If the line can give them room
to operate. Labukas could im
prove his 1956 record.

It appears the law of aver*
ages has caught up with Coach
Stan Zlobro and his Tech High
School football team.
Zlobro. former George Wash
ington University guard, al
ways has been knee deep in
talent at Tech, but for the first
time since he took over five
years ago he is not the usual
"I’ve always been able to field j
two good teams," Ziobro said,
"but the boys are light and
inexperienced this year. We'll
have to work with one team'
and use spotty substitutions”:
Donald Harris, a 185-pound.
5-foot-ll All-High selection at
center last year, is the only
starter returning from the
squad which finished fourth in
the East Division of the Inter
high League with a 3—3 rec
Four Linemen Gone
Ziobro unexpectedly lost four
starters from the line. Tackles
Dave Baten and William Shimel
transferred while Guards Bob
Wilson and Tom Beal, two-year
varsity players, are lost for
medical reasons.
Clayton Bagley. a converted
center, and Jim Strickland are
expected to fill In as guards,
while Merritt Robertson has
the only starting assignment
at tackle nailed down.
Ziobro feels that Don Tap
scott and Elvis Butler will work
out exceptionally well as ends,
the positions that figured to be
the biggest headache this year.
Barkfield Rebuilt
The backfield must be com
pletely rebuilt. Cleve Ander
son and Tom McCloud are the:
fullback candidates while all
other positions are "wide open."
according to Ziobro.
The coach and his assistants.
Harry Smith and Colston
Stewart, are working with both
the wing-T and single-wing
formations. Ziobro is not sure
what kind of a game his team
will play, but does expect to
step up the passing attack.
“We have to.” he said, “our
line will be too light and we
don’t have the runners for a
ground game.”
Ziobro may not feel as pessi
mistic as he sounds. While
watching the boys hustle
through drills Friday, he smiled
and said. "I could be misjudg
ing them. I've been comparing
them with teams we’ve had
here in the past and that could
be a mistake."

Salesmen DONI fjflfy

Most people are somewhat leery of the auto salesmen. They're afraid of
the pressure and sales pitch. At Cave Ford, we avoid high pressure pro
cedures. We don't like being bogeymen. Therefore, as our soles philoso
phy, we make no outlandish claims—we do not pounce on customers.
However, it is our intention to moke the selection and ownership of a new

because we have YOU in mind when we say—the best car deal is a Cave
Ford deal. ’

Around the batting cage yes
, terday, Joe Collins, who has
! seen a few pitchers in his time,
was asked about Ralph, Lu
menti, the Senators' one-inning
. sensation. Lumenti crashed the
majors Saturday and Impressed
with his speed and poise in a
situation where most rookies'
knees would have been click
|! ing like castanets.
I Collins’ eyes became alive. |
1 “He’s real sneaky,” Joe said
t enthusiastically. "I didn't even
start to get the bat around on
( his first pitch. He has a nice,
i easy motion but he fools you
with a great wrist snap at the
: last split-second.
I "He has great potential.”
• continued Collins, who singled
> for the only hit off the 20-
i year-old lefthander. "You can’t
' predict anything for him be
■ cause there's so much more to
pitching than just speed. You
don't know how he’ll react to
situations. You can't look Into!
his heart. He has the arm,
though, and I think Washing
ton might have picked up a;
good one.”
** * *
Harry Simpson, who fanned
on perhaps the fastest ball 1
thrown by a Washington
pitcher this season, said, "His
ball is alive—that’s the main
thing. I was all set to smack
|one of his fast ones and the
ball took off—hopped up. His
{curve isn’t much—or at least
the one he showed us the other
day wasn’t—but he looks like
he ought to be a real fine 1

Cookie and his coaches are
sold on the $35,000 bonus boy.
"He showed poise and was as
cool as a cucumber,” Lavagetto
, said. 'T've liked his disposition
j and his approach to things
since I met him. We need
, pitching, and maybe he can do
, a Job for us.”
Coach Bill Jurges, who isn't
inclined to employ adjectives
i freely in discussing players,
said. "If we paid <90,000 for
the kid we'd have a bargain."
Coach Boom-Boom Beck, also
a conservative appraiser, de
clared, "Off what he has shown
so far on the sidelines and in
that one inning Saturday, we
could have another Lefty Grove

Lumenti appears to have the
ingredients to become some
thing special. Certainly the
Senators haven’t glimpsed any
body as promising in years.
There are dozens of questions
unanswered about him. He
hasn't faced a righthanded
hitter, for instance. He’ll have
his teeth stolen unless he im
proves his move to first base.
Perhaps, after hitters see more
jof him, they'll be able to de
itect movements that tip his
pitches. He may wilt under
pressure or fold in hot weather.
He may lack competitive fire,
think conditioning is strictly
for fighters or be unable to ab
sorb instruction. Or. banish
the thought, he may be drafted.
** * *
But Bill Lefebvre shadowed
Lumenti for three years and
i presumably satisfied himself on
some of those points. It is in
Lumenti's favor, incidentally,
that Lefebvre recommended
him. Bill, a former major
league pitcher who was with
the Senators briefly, never be
fore has gone overboard on a
! youngster.
A lot of distressing things
| may happen to Lumenti, but at
the moment the Senators and
I their bosses are stirred about
his possibilities. The invest
ment seems sound and the op
timism warranted.

Wolfson Bid for Dodgers
Topped by Coast Group
NEW YORK. Sept. 9 f/P).
The question of the future
home of the Dodgers became
even more involved today, with
a group of Los Angeles busi
nessmen offering to purchase
the club and move It to the
West Coast city.
! Elliott Evans of Los Angeles
said he and associates were;
willing to top by a half-million
dollars the <5 million offer
made for the club a few days
ago by Louis E. Wolfson.
Evans made public his offer,
a few hours after John Cash-!
! more, president of the borough |
of Brooklyn, wired Walter
O'Malley of the Dodgers to
“please hold everything” and to
tell Los Angeles to “go find it
self another team.’’
! Cashmore advised O'Malley
in a telegram sent to Vero
Beach, Fla., that legal obstacles
barring a proposed stadium in
the Flatbush section of down
town Brooklyn might be re
moved. O'Malley flew to Vero
Beach yesterday after a slx
day vacation in Wyoming.
The Brooklyn city official
Pikesville Victor
Riggs Jones scored two goals
to lead the Pikesville Polo Club
to a 4-3 victory over the Mary
land Polo Club yesterday at
Olney. Md. Fred Kohler scored
i twice for the losers.
{told O’Malley the decision re
garding a new stadium on the
site desired by the Dodgers is
due shortly. O’Malley repeat
edly has requested city officials
to condemn land on the Flat
bush and Atlantic avenue sits
for the building of a ball park.
He has said he is willing to
Invest more than $6 million to
build the stadium.
Wolfson made his $5 million
offer with hopes of keeping the
Dodgers in the New York area,
Evans declined to say how
far negotiations with the club
have advanced or whom, if
anybody, he has seen.
“But we have made the offer,"
he said. “And I hope to have
an announcement by Tuesday
or Wednesday.”
