Yankees Only 3 Games
From 3rd Straigth Flag
Stengel's Hitless Wonders Face Athletics
Today; Brooks Battle Beantowners Tonight

NEW YORK-(AP)-The relent-
less New York Giants slashed idle
Brooklyn's lead to 2/ games yes-
terday with a 4-3 victory over Bos-
ton that fired new hope in their
long shot pennant chances.
Meanwhile, with the entire Am-
erican League idle, Casey Stengel's
Yankees seemed close to their
third straight pennant with only
one .300 hitter, Gil MacDougald,
and no 100 RBI man on the club.
ACTUALLY THE Yanks were
nearer to the clinching than
Brooklyn, practically conceded the
National League flag in mid-sum-
mer. The Giants continue to give
the Dodgers fits down the stretch
while the Yank opposition falters.
Eddie Stanky, whose error op-
ened the door for a two-run
Boston rally in the fourth, struck
the winning blow with a ninth-
inning single.
Tied 3-3 going to the last of the
ninth with young Chet Nichols
blazing an eight-strikeout game,
Don Mueller opened with a single.
Manager Leo Durocher sent in
Dave Williams to run for Mueller.
Billy Rigney, batting for Wes
Westrum, moved Williams to sec-
ond with an effective sacrifice
bunt. Ray Noble popped out as a
pinch hitter for the second out.
* * *
STANKY THEN singled off the
glove of third baseman Sibby Sisti,
who just moved over from short-
stop in the eighth, and Williams
scooted home with the winning
run.

Only 6,059 turned out for the
Giants' final home game to see
Sheldon Jones duel with the
Braves' 20-year-old southpaw in
the early innings. Dave Koslo,
who came in when the Braves
knocked out Jones in the sixth,
won his 10th game. It was Ni-
chol's ninth loss.
Brooklyn still needs any com-
bination of four wins or New York
defeats to clinch the National Lea-'
gue championship. Both the Dod-!
gers and Giants finish up on the
road.
The Dodgers, enjoying an off
day before a twi-night double-
header in Boston, have seven to
play, the Giants only four. After
four in Boston, Brooklyn winds up
with three in Philadelphia. The
Giants play at Philadelphia today
and tomorrow and finish at Bos-
ton Saturday and Sunday.
* * *
THE YANKS, needing only three
more wins or Cleveland defeats to
nail down the flag, rested yester-
day for the final six-game dash to
the wire.
Bob Kusava (11-6), used only
in relief since Aug. 9, was nam-
ed to face Philadelphia's Bobby
Shantz (17-9) in a Stadium bat-
tle of lefthanders today.
Cleveland, with only three
games to play, faces Chicago in a
night game at Comiskey Park with
Early Wynn (20-12), to face Lefty
Billy Pierce (14-14). Boston, five
games behind and practically eli-
minated, plays a night game at
Washington.
IF THE YANKS go on to win,
this probably will be recognized as
Stengel's greatest triumph. For
this has been a skillful job of piec-
ing together a club that never was
"set" all season.

Byers Named
NCAAChief
CHICAGO -(A')- Appointment
of Walter Byers, National Col-
legiate Athletic Association and
Big Ten administrative aide the
past four years, to fill the newly-
created post of executive director
of th eNCAA was announced yes-
terday.
It was also disclosed that the
NCAA's executive office would be
moved next spring to Kansas City,
as also will be the National Col-
legiate Athletic Bureau now oper-
ating in New York.
* * *
..THE ANNOUNCEMENTS were
made jointly by Hugh C. Willett of
Southern California, NCAA presi-
dent, and Kenneth L. (Tug) Wil-
son, NCAA secretary-treasurer.
Wilson said Byers' new posi-
tion was created by the NCAA's
executive committee and ap-
proved by the 17-man council at
an Aug. 28meeting here.
Byers' salary was not disclosed,
nor was there any announcement
on his possible successor as Big
Ten assistant to the commissioner.
AL Playoff?
CHICAGO - () - Although it
doesn't seem the New York Yan-
kees will be caught, the American
League today arranged a playoff
program in the event the Cleveland
Indians or Boston Red Sox should
squeeze irto a pennant tie.
Now trailing by two and a half
games with only. three games left,
second-place Cleveland did the
best in the coin-tossing ceremony
in the office of league president
Will Harridge. The three top con-
tenders % ere represented by writ-.
ers from wire services.
If Cleveland ties with either
New York or Boston in a two-
club deadlock, either opponent
would have to come to Cleve-
land for an Oct. 1 single playoff
game.
If Boston somehow should erase
its five-game lag and tie New York,
that playoff would be held at Bos-
ton, also Oct. 1.

Two former Michigan hockey
stars, Neil Celley and Al Renfrew,
have been appointed head puc c
mentors at two of the nations
le ading college hockey powers, it
was announced recently.

Celley's appointment came as a
bit of a surprise in hoc.'y circles,

Minnescta, was reportedly doing
well in a tryout with the NHL
title--hoicing Detroit Red Wings

Adams took Celley to the Detroit
training camp at Sault St. Marie,

rarely taken with Amenican-born
puck chssers, especially of the col-
lege variety.
