BOX 388 CALDWELL, TEXAS Orioles’ Richards To Manage Stars By The Associated Press , BOSTON—Paul Richards of the Baltimore Orioles Monday was named American League All Star team manager by President Joe Cronin. The selection of Richards, named Associated Press AL manager of the year in 1960, marks the third time since 1933 that the tradition of picking the previous yeaPs win ning pilot has been broken. The retirement of Casey Stengel, who managed the New York Yan kees to the junior circuit flag a year ago, necessitated the action. Otherwise Stengel would have qualified automatically for the All Star honor. “I would be proud and pleased to have any one of our present ten managers fill in for Casey,” Cronin said, “But I feel Richards earned the honor through his fine job last season.” Richards, 52, a native of Waxa- hachie, Tex., who blended youth and expedience into a surprise sec ond place finish for his Orioles last year. The two All Star games this season will be played in San Fran cisco July 11 and Boston July 31. The eight starting players, pitch ers excepted, will be picked next month by thle vote of all active American League players, mana gers and coaches. Richards will select tiie remainder of the squad —pitchers, two coaches, two bat ting practice pitchers, a batting practice catcher and a trainer. The 1936 and 1940 All Star games were the only other occa sions when the American League’s previous pennant winning manager did not serve. In the 1936 All Star contest, Joe McCarthy of the Yankees ran the club in place of Mickey Coch rane of the 1935 champion Detroit Tigers. Again in 1940 Cronin of the runner-up Boston Red Sox was selected in place of McCarthy. noij.i&oct A long distance call is always next best to being there ' in person!

The Southwestern States Telephone Company Davis, also a senior, has been a valuable man to Coach Tom Chandler ever since he was a soph omore. His play in center field has been tremendous support to his teammates during his three years on the varsity. Davis is probably one of the greatest hust lers on the Aggie baseball team since the departure of J. B. Car- roll. Both of the stars are outstand ing pi’ofessional prospects along with Hickerson, who was the most valuable player on the 1961 Aggie squad. Texas landed four players, Bay lor three, TCU and A&M two each, and SMU and Rice one each on the all-dream team. Baylor’s star third baseman, Ronnie Goodwin, had ( the highest batting average on the team with .419 and Chuck Knutson of Texas led in the runs-batted-in depart ment with 27. TCU’s Leon Baze, who was placed on the squad as a utility infielder, lead the team in home runs with 10. Since there are six juniors and two sophomores on the all-team, the conference will expect another strong year of baseball next spring.

Vs : : r y v: Bh Stuffy Davis . . . ditto Dodgers’ Stan Williams Has Had It Rough This Season By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer If you think you’ve got it tough, pal. take a look at Stan Williams. All the big right-hander has to do to nail a complete game victory these days is to fire a four-hitter and keep firing until the Los An geles Dodgers finally get around to putting it away. Only A 1-2 Mark After getting only a 1-2 record and no complete games out of six starts this season, Williams hit on the four-hit, extra-inning formula for a 2-1, 11-inning victory over Milwaukee last Wednesday. He stayed with it again Monday night, once more giving up just four hits for a 2-1 decision at Cincinnati, this one in 10 innings, as the Dodgers remained just percentage points shy of the National League lead with their fifth straight suc cess. Giants Stay Ahead San Francisco stayed .014 per centage points ahead with a 3-1 victory at -St. Louis. Third-place Pittsburgh, one game behind the Giants, defeated Milwaukee 2-1 in the only other NL game. cool cotton hTruval $299 You’ll feel at your casual best in this combed cotton mesh sportshirt by Truval.

THE EXCHANGE STORE “Serving '^exas Aggies” In the American League, the Detroit Tigers walloped Kansas City 10-2 and kept a 3% game lead over Cleveland. The Indians beat Minnesota 7-5 in 15 innings, third- place New York defeated Balti more 8-2, Boston rapped the Chi cago White Sox 4-1 and the Los Angeles Angels beat Washington 6-4. Struck Out 11 Williams, who struck out 11 when he beat the Braves, fanned 8 in this one and walked but 3 while blanking the Reds on two singles after they had tied it 1-all in the first inning. The Dodgers, winning' their eighth in a row on the road, col lected 10 hits, but barely pulled it out. Loser Bob Purkey (4-2) gave up a walk to Maury Wills opening the 10th, but after a sac rifice and Willie Davis’ single moved him to third, Wills was nailed at the plate trying to score on Wally Moon’s infield bouncer. A two-out single by Tommy Davis finally broke it up. Bounced Back The Giants, after losing three in a row to the Dodgers, bounced back behind Jack Sanford (3-3) at St. Louis, cracking a shutout duel with two runs in the sixth off loser Ernie Broglio (3-5). Two singles, by Chuck Hiller and Har vey Kuenn, and errors by second baseman Alex Grammas and right fielder Joe Cunningham, both on a grounder by Willie Mays, gave the Giants one run. Hobie Lan- drith’s sacrifice fly produced the clincher. Orlando Cepeda closed it out with a home run, his 11th, tops in the NL, in the eighth inn ing.
