sure Casey will be back."
Stengel, independently wealthy
with more oil wells than baseball
players, has eindicated several
times he may retire from baseball
to meet his wife's request.
The centers of attention in the
Yankees' locker room were Berra,
the sturdy little catcher whose ear-
ly pair of two-run homers put the
9-0 victory over Brooklyn on ice,,
and Kucks, the 23-year-old right-
hander who pitched a magnificent
three-hit shutout.
Berra disclosed that he hit his
two home runs for his mother,
Mrs. Pauline Berra, who is in a St."
Louis hospital after having a leg
"I talked to Mom Monday night,"
the Yankee catcher said. "She
asked me to hit a home run yester-
day. I tried my darnedest, but T'
couldn't do it. So I got two today."
Kucks said' he was fooling the
Dodgers withsliders and a fast

"I knew Casey had a bunch of
guys in the bullpen ready to come1

pumping them in there all the

Yogi's two home runs, I was able
to relax a little, but I didn't want*
to take any chances. Casey and,
Jim Turner, Yankee pitching
coach, kept telling me to keep the,
ball low. Today I did."

THE YANKEE BRAIN TRUST ate a happy lot today. Shown on the left is manager Casey Stengel
of the new world's champions with his coaches, Bill Dickey, Frank Crosetti and Jim Turner. These
four are responsible for guiding New York's American Leaguers to their first world's title since 1953,
but were helped by such phenomena as a pair of grand slam homers and a perfect game.
Gloom Reigns Over Beaten Dodgers

... two homers

(Continued from Page 1
As usual, Manager Casey Sten-
gel's strategy proved to be per-
fect. He benched two lefthanded
hitters-Enos Slaughter and Joe
Collins-against the right-handed
Newcombe and got away with it.
The two men he inserted into the
lineup, Elston Howard and Skow-
ron each hit home runs.
When Berra threw to Skowron
for the final out on Robinson's
strike out, the entire Yankee ball
club gathered around the mound
to pound Kucks' back.
Berra, who had hit a bases-
loaded home run off Newcombe
when he was knocked out with a
6-0 deficit in the second game,
lashed into the jumbo-sized right-
hander for two more to send him
home again. It was Newcombe's
fourth series defeat and the 27-
game winner still is looking for
win No. 1 in the fall.
Yankees Set Homer Mark
The Yankee deluge of four hom-
ers for a total of 12 in the series
set a record, breaking their own
mark of 10 hit against the Dodgers
in 1952.
The Stocky Yankee catcher set
a series record with 10 runs batted
in by adding 4 in the final game.
The late Lou Gehrig set the old
high of nine in 1928.
The Yanks knocked Newk off
the mound before there was any-
body out in the fourth inning.-
Berra had hit two home runs, in
the first and third with a man'
on base each time, and Howard,
had opened the fourth with a shot
over the scoreboard in right field
before Newk trudged, head down,
to the dugout.
Berra Hits Two Homers
Hank Bauer lined a single over
PeeWee Reese's head to start the
Yankee attack on Newcombe in
the first inning. With two gone,
Berra smashed his first homer
over the right-field screen.
That 2-0 lead held until the third
when Berra came up again with
Billy Martin on first. This time
he powered a Newcombe 2-2 ser-
vice high over the scoreboard
clock in right field.

Don Bessent, relieving New-
combe, slid through three innings
without giving a run. But after he
left for a pinch hitter in the sixth,
the blue sky caved in on Roger
Billy Martin started it with a
single to left and Mickey Mantle
walked. The first pitch to Berra
was a wild pitch, letting the two

BROOKLYN (AP) - "They beat
the heck out of us," said Walter
Alston sadly in his little office a
few minutes after the last out of
the last game of the 1956 World
"But all I want to say is that
this club worked like dogs all year
Long," the Brooklyn Dodger man-
ager went on.
"They battled from behind.

They did a wonderful job as far
as I am concerned. They fought
the Yankees right down to the
seventh game."
Then he paid tribute to Manag-
er Casey Stengel and his victor-
ious American League team.
"Casey did a good job-and they,
got some hitting."
The inevitable question came up:

How about Don Newcombe, the big
27-game winner during the season
who has yet to win a series game
and was shelled from the mound in
the fourth?
"Newk had as good stuff as I
have ever seen him show," said
Alston. "He either struck 'em out
or they hit it over the fence."
If there was a turning point in
the series, it was Don Larsen's
perfect no-hitter Monday, won by
the Yankees 2-0 to put them ahead
in games 3-2.
"If we had won on Sunday I
would have used Clem Labine on
Monday to try to win the series
for us," said Alston. As it was
Labine won Tuesday's game with
t great shutout performance.
'Next Year'
"We'll get 'em next year," a
well wisher told PeeWee Reese,
the little Dodger captain.
Now 37, the Dodger shortstop is
near the end of a long and bril-
liant major league career. Age is
creeping up on others in the Dodg-
er ranks-Roy Campanella ,Jack-
ie Robinson, Sal Maglie, Carl Fu-
rillo. Even the boyish-looking Gil
Hodges is 32.
Part of the sadness in the Dodg-
er dressing room undoubtedly came
from the fact that for many of
the "old pros" this may well have
been their last chance.

Manager Walt

Alston ordered Craig to pass Berra,
loading the bases with nobody out.
Skowron then'slammed a Craig
pitch into the lower left-field
stands and everybody ran home.
"I had, a real good pitch," said
Kucks. "The fast ball. It sinks.
Yogi called for it today and it
really worked good."
Skowron's grand slam was only
the sixth in the series history and
the first time that two of them
ever came in the same set of
games. Not by accident, five of
the six have been hit by Yanks.

Twonkey Crimscott was a professor. Choate Sigafoos
was a sophomore. Twonkey Crimscott was keen, cold,
brilliant. Choate Sigafoos was loose, vague, adenoidal.
Twonkey Crimscott believed in diligence, discipline, and
marking on the curve. Choate Sigafoos believed in elves,
Jayne Mansfield, and thirteen hours sleep each night.
Yet there came a time when Twonkey Crimscott -
mentor, sage, and savant - was thoroughly out-thought,
out-foxed, out-maneuvered, out-ployed, and out-witted
by Choate Sigafoos, sophomore.
It happened one day when Choate was at the library
studying for one of Mr. Crimscott's exams in sociology.
Mr. Crimscott's exams were murder -plain, flat murder.
They consisted of one hundred questions, each question
ha-ving four possible answers-A, B, C, and D. The trouble
was that the four choices were so subtly shaded, so in-
tricately worded, that students more clever by far than
Choate Sigafoos were. often set to gibbering.
So on this day Choate sat in the library poring over
his sociology text, his tiny brow furrowed with concen-
tration, while all around him sat the other members of
the sociology class, every one studying like crazy. "What
a waste!" he thought. "All this youth, this verve, this
bounce, chained to musty books in a musty library! We
should be out singing and dancing and smooching and
cutting didoes on the greensward!"
Then, suddenly, an absolute gasser of an idea hit
Choate. "Listen!" he shouted to his classmates. "Tomor-
row when we take the exam, let's all - every one of us -
check Choice 'A' on every question - every one of them."
"Huh?" said his classmates.
"Mr. Crimscott marks on the curve. If we all check
the same answers, then we all get the same score, and
everybody in the class gets a 'C'."
"Hmm," said his classmates.
"Let's get out of here and have a ball!" said Choate.
So they all ran out and lit Philip Morrises and had
a ball, as, indeed, you will too when you light a Philip
Morris, for if there ever was a cigarette to lift the spirit
and gladden the heart, it is today's new Philip Morris-
firm and pure and fragrant and filled with true, natural,
golden tobacco, lip end to tip end.

Well sir, the next morning the whole class did what
Choate said and, sure enough, they all got "C's," and they
picked Choate up and carried him on their shoulders and
sang "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and plied him with
sweetmeats and Philip Morris and girls and put on
buttons which said "I DOTE ON CHOATE."
But they were celebrating too soon. Because the next
