NEW YORK - It's back to the

grindstone today for the major
league baseball clubs, and the next
seven days may be big ones in de-
ciding whether we're in for anoth-
er Yankee-Dodger World Series.
The New York Yankees, now
found human through their recent
nine-game losing streak, move out
west where they have an important
double-header Sunday with the
red-hot second place Chicago
White Sox, followed by three
games with the third place Cleve-
land Indians.
IF CASEY Stengel's athletes can
protect all or most of their five-
game lead, there may be no head-
ing them in the late summer
stretch. If the Sox and Indians can
cut into the advantage, the Amer-
ican League may be in for a crack-
4 erjack race.
Meanwhile, the unsteady
Brooklyn Dodgers, holding a
Ij2 game lead in the National
League, entertain the dashing
St. Louis Cardinals in four
games and then next weekend
tackle the second place Milwau-

These activities, plus the doings
of the New York Giants and Phil-

senior circuit scramble into sharp-
er focus. Right now only 61
games separate the leading Dodg-
es from the rallying fifth place
Giants, who have won eight of
their last nine games.

IN DETROIT, Steve Gromek will
start against the Boston Red Sox
for the first time this year to-
night at Briggs Stadium.
Only three daysafter he came
to the Detroit Tigers from Cleve-
land, Gromek had a part in Bos-
ton's massacre of the Tigers
June 18.
That was the day in Boston
when the Red Sox/walloped the

Tigers 23-3. They collected 14
hits and 17 runs in seventh in-
ning outburst. Gromek was pitch-
ing for Detroit when the Red Sox
started their rampage and he was
charged with seven hits an nine
runs before he could get under
cover.
BUT GROMEK has been a dif-
ferent pitcher ever since then. He
turned back the Philadelphia Ath-
letics on a four-hitter and the
Cleveland Indians on a seven-hit-
ter. He lost a well pitched nine
hitter to the Washington Sena-
tors. Gromek has a season record
of 3-3, including 2-2 with bhe Ti-
gers.
Mel Parnell 12-5 will be on the
mound for Boston.

INDIANS RETURN
CLEVELAND - Bobby Avila and
Dale Mitchell expect to be back in
the Cleveland Indians line-up to-
night against the Philadelphia
Athletics.
Avila, the second baseman,
hurt his arm July 6 when he
and out-fielder Harry Simpson
collided while chasing a fly.
Mitchell, left fielder, hurt his
heel last Friday sliding for a base.
MANTLE READY
JOPLIN, Mo. - Mickey Mantle
said yesterday he is ready to play
against th6 St. Louis Browns, the
next opponents of the New York
Yankees.
With an almost unnoticeable
limp, the Yankee centerfielder
arrived here by plane yesterday
morning for a one-day visit with
the homefolks at Commerce,
Okla.
Mantle's right leg muscle injury
was -aggravated Tuesday in the
All-Star game at Cincinnati. He
said it was not a bad injury, but
probably will need some rest.

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Rocky Marciano,
the shoemaker's son from Brock-
ton, Mass., will defend his world
heavyweight title against Roland
LaStarza, former college student,
in the Polo Grounds Sept. 24.
They signed the contract for the
15-round bout yesterday. It will be
held just a year and a day from
the night Marciano lifted the
crown from the aging head of
Jersey Joe Walcott.
PROMOTER Jim Norris, head
of the International Boxing Club,
said the IBC is exploring the pos-
sibilities of both home and the-
ater television. He indicated rath-
er strongly that theater TV might
be preferred because it would leave
the possibility of profitable mo-
tion pictures.
A supplementary contract
provided that if LaStarza should
win the title, they will meet in
a return bout within six months.
Although Marciano and LaStar-
za are noted, for their quiet, gen-
tlemanly demeanor, the fight is
one which might develop consid-
erable rancor before it comes off.
It's a rematch of one of the most

rival, but Rocky got a split deci-
sion.
LaStarza hasn't had a fight
since he outpointed Rex Layne,
then regarded as an important
title contender, last February.
That bout was a turning point
for the 26-year-old ex-collegian.
After losing to Marciano in 1950
-his first defeat in 38 profes-
sional fights.-LaStarza had to
start near the bottom again. He
ran into setbacks by Dan Buccer-
oni and Rocky Jones, both of
whom he beat in return bouts.
MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE
LONDON-The world middle-
weight title fight between Bri-
tain's Randy Turpin and Bobo Ol-
son of San Francisco, may take
place in London in the fall, Tur-
pin's manager said yesterday.
The bout was originally sched-
uled for Aug. 27 in New York.
* * *
IT WAS postponed until mid-
October at the request of Tur-
pin's manager, George Middleton,
who said his fighter needed a
"little more time to get into pro-
per condition" after an automobile
accident.

By The Associated Press
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-
College conferences were urged
yesterday to adopt rules prohibit-
ing contests in any sports between
college and professional teams.
Commissioners of the ten major
college athletic conferences unani-
mously approved a resolution ask-
ing the conferences to halt any
contests between the play-for-pay
athletes and the collegians.

commissioners' meeting at the
Broadmoor Hotel said the prob-
lem was not "regarded as a serious
one." He said, however, that the
commissioners felt the regulations
should be adopted as a means of
"protecting the institution of ama-
teur athletics."
The spokesman added that the
commissioners felt "anything
which makes a sharp distinction
between amateur and profes-
sional athletics is a distinct
gain."
No particular pro-college games
were discussed. In the past there
have been hockey games between
Michigan and the professional De-
troit Red Wings.
Also Holy Cross has had a base-
ball series with the Boston Red
Sox. There have been reports the
Harlem Globe Trotters touring
professidnal basketball team would
try to develop a series with college
teams.
The commissioners recom-
mended that the conferences
adopt prohibitions that would
also bar games between college
teams and independent collec-
tions of players that might in-
clude a professional.
Most conferences do not have
any regulations barring college-
pro games.

Air Forces, Central Europe.

fans if he pilots the Hambleton-
ian winner at Goshen, N.Y., Aug.
12.
Del is only 33 years old, prac-
tically a babe in arms compared
to the rugged, weather-beaten
C characters most people associate
with the harness sport. In fact,
the winning driver in the Ham-
bletonian last year was Bi Shive-
ly, a 74-year-old kid from Lex-
ington, Ky.
* * '*
BUT CAMERON, who stands 5
feet 4% inches and weighs 122
pounds after eating bananas, is
conceded an excellent chance to
bring the winner home.
He will be clucking to New-
port Star, a colt owned by Oc-
tave Blake of South Plainfield,
N.J., and which last year as a
two-year-old won $35,613, only
slightly less than the purses
taken by Lively Lady. Lively
Lady will not trot in the Ham-
bletonian, enhancing the chan-
ces of Blake's entry.
Should Cameron be in the win-

THE LATE Dr. Hugh M. "Doc"
Parshall of Urbana, Ohio, was the
youngest winner to date. He won
the event in 1934 at the mellow
age of 34. Last year it seemed
that Johnny Simpson, 33, might
come through with the favorite,
Duke of Lullwater, but he wound
up in third place.
Oddly enough Cameron has
won the pacing counterpart of
the Hambletonian - the Little
Brown Jug, raced at Delaware,
Ohio,-twice, in 1947, when he
was 27, and again in 1951.
Newport Star, winner of 12 of
26 starts last year, isn't exactly
easy to handle. Cameron says the
colt is high strung and has a ten-
dency to break gait a bit, particu-
larly behind the starting gate.
However, he's improved in that
respect in recent events.
4' * *
THE TINY driver, a native of
Massachusetts who now lives in
Pinehurst, N.C., represents a trot-
ting family, not meaning they al-
ways are on the run from some-

etonian Pick
thing. His father, mother, sister
and a brother all train trotters,
and his two young sons already
know what it is to sit behind a
fast-moving steed.
We met Del at Goshen a few
days ago when he was compet-
ing in the five-day meeting at
historic track. We found him a
pleasant, affable young fellow.
He wouldn't say what his chan-
ces were in the Hambletonian
with Newport Star, but such re-
ticence isn't unusual.
Currently, some 83-year-olds
are eligible for the Hambletonian,
which annually turns the drowsy
village of Goshen into a one-day
carnival. Probably between 12
and 15 will start, with the exact
number not known until 24,hours
before the race when the final
starting fee of $1,000 must be
posted.
Anyway, this is Cameron's last
chance to be the youngest win-
ning driver. Next year will be too
late.
