Richards Returns to Majors
As Manager of Chicago Sox
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The Chicago White
Sox yesterday announced signing
of Paul Richards, Seattle pilot in
the Pacific Coast League, to a two-
year contract as manager of the
Richards replaced John (Red)
Corriden, who became a "fill-in"
pilot last May when the White
Sox fired Jack Onslow.

RICHARDS, 41, managed three
minor league clubs, but this is the
first Major League managerial as-
signment for the former catcher
for the Detroit Tigers. He was a
Tiger player-coach from 1943
His White Sox salary was, not
Richard's Seattle club finished
sixth in the Pacific Coast
League. He managed Atlanta of
the Southern Association five
years from 1938 through 1942.
He won two pennants and fin-
ished second and won one post-
season playoff in that span.
In 1947-48-49, Richards manag-
ed Buffalo of the, International
League, winning the circuit pen-
nant in 1949.

RICHARDS is from Waxaha-
chie, Tex., where he was born.
General-Manager Frank Lane
said the 1950 coaching staff will
be selected entirely by Richards,
but if he wanted to retain Cor-
riden as a coach, it would be ac-
ceptable to the White Sox.
Richards is the fifth White Sox
manager since 1946 when Jimmy
Dykes left after a 13-season re-

"I can get it if I want it. No,

be, they've just got to like me."
If Casey does "good work" and
ges $75,000 or $85,000 it willbe
the highest price ever paid a man-
ager. Best guesses are that the
new agreement calls for a basic

Stengel, preparing to leave
for his Glendale, Calif., home
where he hopes to "lay dead for
a month," talked freely about
his first signing with the Yanks
in October of 1948.
"I c9me in her with brick laws
of the Oakland club," he said.
"They give me a two-year contract
and asked me a figure I'd work
for. I got between 3's and 4's ($30,-

Counting all of it, I got better

I NEVER HAD to ask for more
but they did the same thing this
year, even more at the end of the

extra things and I get extra
money. Mr. Topping, Mr. Webb
and Mr. Weiss have been mighty
fine to me."

It might be with some regret
that Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
conspires the overthrow of mighty
Army this weekend.
Bennie probably won't admit it,
but this game coming up is just
a bit more important to him and
the team than most of the rest of
the contests on the schedule.
OOSTERBAAN likes to take
each game as it comes, but how
can he take this one in stride when
it's against the team that snapped
the Wolverines' 25 game win streak
last year, a team Michigan has
never beaten, and purrently is the
,timber one outfit in the country.
Even if Oosterbaan doesn't
want to think of the six confer-
ence games following, he can't
help contemplating the effect
this game could have on the
There is still a Western Confer-
ence title to go after and with
that a possibility of a Rose Bowl
trip. All chances for either or both
of these might go by the wayside
THE MENTAL buildup of a team
NEW YORK - (IP) - The Na-
tional Hockey league opens its
1950-51 season tonight-the ear-
liest inaugural in history-and De-
troit's talent-rich Red Wings once
again are expected to clean up in
The- Red Wings will begin at
home against the New York Ran-
gers, the 'team they beat in the
Stanley Cup finals last April.
ANOTHER opener is carded for
Thursday at Chicago, where Ebbie
Goodfellow unveils his revitalized
Black Hawks against the Montreal
Canadiens. Then all six clubs will
see action over the week-end.
It seems, at this point, there
just isn't a team strong enough
to challenge Tommy Ivan's Mo-
tor City skaters. But the De-
troit coach looks for no runaway
as last season.
"The league is better balanced,"
Ivan said, "and we can expect a
six-team race. Our club is in good
physical condition. I don't think
the trade with Chicago has made
us any weaker."
Hockey's greatest player swap
sent veteran defenseman Jack Ste-
wart, goalie Harry Lumley, for-
ward Pete Babando and farm-
hands Don Morrison and Al Dews-
berry to Chicago. In return, De-
troit received center Metro Pry-
stai, wing Gaye Stewart, defense-
man Bob Goldham and goalie Jim
The deal apparently has bolster-
ed both teams. The Red Wings
have added extra scoring power to
their already fearful attack, and
the Black Hawks have plugged
their porous defense, a long-stand-

for a big game is tremendous. The
letdown after can be just as great
and often disasterous.
One need go no farther than
the last two meetings between
Michigan and the Cadets. They
merely cost the Wolverines a
Big Ten title and a trip to Pasa-
dena in 1946 and an undisputed
crown last year.
Then there is the heartbreaking
28-27 Purdue loss to Notre Dame
in 1948, after which the Boiler-
makers, a pre-season favorite for
t h e conference championship,

AND MORE recently there is
the collapse of the Michigan State
Spartans last Saturday after their
dramatic upset of Michigan the
It's a decision that many a
coach has to make. Either he
can have his team point for one
big game and take a chance on
the consequences, or else they
can take them all alike.
Stu Holcomb of Purdue gambled
and lost in 1948, but this year he
succeeded, at least as far as win-
ning the "big one" is concerned.
The effects of Purdue's smashing
triumph over the Irish might still
be serious, but presumably not as
bad as if they had been beaten.
* * *
ALSO, Purdue should have a
fairly soft touch this week in com-
parison to what Michigan will
have to face the week after the
encounter with Army.
While the Boilermakers take
Miami University of Florida, the
Wolverines sail into their Big
Ten slate against Wisconsin's
Badgers next week.
Wisconsin upset highly regarded
Illinois last Saturday and they ap-
parently are stronger than the
early season forecasts had made
them out to be.
The setup appears to be a natu-
ral. With a defeat or even, a vic-
tory against, Earl Blaik's Black
Knights, the Wolverines will suf-
fer a letdown against the Badgers.
It could be the beginning of a dis-
mal conference campaign for the
Big Ten Co-champs.

The experts were piking the
Wolverines to notch up their
26th in a row over te Cadet,
ranked number seven in the poll
at that time..
BUt the experts and the football
poll were wrong. Army turned back
the Maize and Blue, 21-7.
THIS YEAR the tables are re-
The West Pointers annexed
this week's football crown and
the Wolverines found themselves
lodged in a deep 18th place.
And this Saturday at New York's
Yankee Stadium Army will enter
the game as favorites to extend its
undefeated streak to 23 games and
take its fourth straight victory in
as many meetingswith Michigan.
SO THE STAGE will be set for
Michigan to prove the experts
wrong again and settle a long
overdue West Point account at
the same time.
The outcome will rest on the
shoulders of the 35-odd players
that will carry the baize and
Blue colors into the home of
baseball's world champions.
It will be a tough assignment
for Michigan's young ball club.

But the Wolverines will have the
advantage of a fighting spirit and
a will to win. That the Michigan
squad demonstrated in a hard
practice session yesterday.

ture brightened considerably
