The Tribe still has a mathe

but it's only a fleeting hope
one that would require a minor
miracle to come true.
Detroit vaulted into a near tie
with Cleveland for third place

header yesterday on the pitching
of Hal Newhouser and Ted Gray.
Both are six games behind the

Cecil "Cece" Sherwood
Cece Sherwood, athletic director of the Roseburg school system
and football coach, is In the process of building his third Roseburg
Indians varsity football team, since coming here with his family
in the summer of 1947.
The senior high school grid
iron mentor came here after 13
years of coaching experience.
During that time, he built a pow.
erful gridiron cluh at LaGrande
that went to Portland, to oppose
Medford for the state loolball
championship. , ,
During his eight years at La-
Grande, his team claimed the
mythical title of "Oregon high
school football champions" in
1941. Four years later, his club
foucht and lost to Medford at
His first football coaching du
ties took him to Halfway, Ore,
where he built an impressive
team while there three years.
Prior to his hitch at Halfway.
Sherwood played on the Oregon
Mate college eleven as naunacK.
He started In his sophomore year
and continued to play ball until
he was graduated, with a degree
in physical education,
Coachtd at Abardeen
Sherwood's most recent coach
ing tour, prior to coming to Rose
burg, was at the tough Aberdeen.
Wash, high school. He turned
In his resignation after two years
to continue his education.
After receiving his masters de
gree at the University of -Washington,
Sherwood came here to
start building a powerful Rose
burg club.
His first year nere, the Indians
wound up third highest In the
league, having defeated Kceds
port. Coqullle, Mvrtle Point,
North Bend and tottage Grove,
the latter contest being a non
league game. The Indians lost
only to Grants Pass and Marsh

educating their athletes In sports
before they are hardly out of
bib and tucker.
Last year, Sherwood's second
season at senior high school, his
charges were tied (or second
lace In the league. The Indians
beat Coqullle, North Bend, Ash
land and Myrtle Point.
They lost to Medford, Cottage
Grove, Reedsport and Marshfleld,
and tied with Grants Pass in a
thriller that pregame prognos
tlcators gave to the Cavemen by
at least two touchdowns.
If a trend is seen in the last
two season's of football play, the
Indiana should wind up either
first, or at least, a sole second
this year. Coach Sherwood isn't
making any claims. But any
casual observer watching the In
dians "put out" on the practice
field each afternoon, can plainly
see the Indians don't plan oh
taking any losses sitting down.

Sacs Post Win
Over Oakland
After 5 Defeats
Associated Press Sports Writer
Sacramento Is a good friend In
deed of Hollywood, Pacific Coast
league leaders.
The Stars took the Solons for
five games straight over the La
bor day weekend to strengthen a
shaky lead over second-place Oak
land. Last night the Solons' Walt
Dropo hit a ninth-inning three
run homer to give Sacramento an
8-5 win over Oakland. The Solons'
spotted the Oaks a five run sec
ond inning, too.
The Solon win was much ap
preciated by Hollywood which
ended a six-game winning streak
by losing 5-3 to San Diego. The
veteran Jess Flores topped the
Stars' Pinky Woods who was try
ing for his 21st victory. It was
Flores' 18th win.

Cal McLish lasted through for

Oregon Staters
Are Put Through
Rugged Workouts
Corvallis, Sept. 8. Kip Taylor's
rugged program of two three
hour workouts each day has al
ready started to pay off hand
some dividends for the 1949 Ore
gon State football squad.
Midway through the second
week of practice the Beavers are
not only rounding Into top phys
ical condition but the club is
rapidly smoothing out its execu
tion of plays, Taylor himself is
the first to admit the Beavers
are coming along well and should
be ready for UCLA In the con
ference at Los Angeles on Sep
tember 16.
Most noticeable Improvement
has been in blocking. Taylor and
his assistants have spent hours
teaching the Orangemen to block
hard and sure and the results
already are clearly evident.
The few spectators who get
past the closed practice gates
with special passes issued by Tay
lor are greatly impressed by the
tremendous spirit of the Orange
players. Competition is keen at
all positions and the starting line
up for the opening encounter is
slill far from settled.
If Taylor had to name his line
up today, It probably would look
something like this: left end,
John Thomas; left tackle, Arvid
Niemi; left guard, Ed Carmlch
ael; center, Al Gray; right guard,
Captain Tom DeSylvia; right
tackle. Jay Simon; right end,
Rudy Ruppe; quarterback, Ralph
Carr; left half. Ken Carpenter;
right half, Don Mast: and full
hack, Dick Twenge. Thomas and
Carr are sophomores: Al Grav
and Nelml, Junior; and the rest
are seniors.
Two Roca Horsas Killed

SPOKANE, Sept. 9. M Two
race horses were killed Thursday
and their Jockeys were Injured
seriously In a hpari.nn rnltuinn
Playfair race track.
The horses slammed Into each
other during early morning work
outs. The jockevs were Stanley Con

A witness, G. Young of atco,
Idaho, said Kelly went onto the
track riding Kitty Canter Just as
Connell broke from the atardng
gate on Kiefer.
Kitty Canter was going In the
wrong direction on the track,
Young said, and the two horses
ran Into each other head-on.
"I don't think the Jockevs or
the horses saw each other," he
said. "It happened Just like that."

der wet ball conditions yester
day afternoon at Finlay field,
in preparation for the opening
game with Medford to be played
here Friday night, Sept. 16, at
8 p.m.
For the boys, the rain was a
reliefer. After a tough scrimmage
during which time Coaches Sher
wood, Norm West and Ray
Brown worked them mercilessly,
the cooling thundershower was
manna from heaven.
Tackling and more tackling
was the primary tactic empha
sized by Sherwood. During pass
ing drills, quarterbacks Ronnie
Strickling, and Mickey Coen
found the ball somewhat slippery
but this new experience of play
ing with a slick ball merely em
phasized the necessity for more

Roseburg football fans are In
vited to a "preview of 1949 foot
