ALERT DEFENSE The alert defensive play of the San
Francisco Giants is one reason they are leading the Na
tional League. In the top picture the Philadelphia Phil
lies'. Richie Ashburn is nailed at the plate. Ashburn
tried to score on Wally Post's double but a relay throw
from Giant shortstop lid Bressoud to catcher Hobie
Landrith caught him at the plate. Giants won, 1-0.
Youngest Oregon Team
Might Be i A 'Sleeper'
EUGENE (UPI) Few expect
the University of Oregon to set
the football world on ftre this
fall. But Coach Len Casanova, in
his ninth year here, might just
have a sleeper.
True, it's the youngest Oregon
team since 1951. Twenty-four of
the 45 varsity players are sopho,
mores, And only 15 of the players
are lettermen. 4
But Casanova has a swift back
field led by three speed mer
chants from San Diego. He's got
a potential all-American center in !
Bob Peterson. And he has Dave,
Grosz back at quarterback.
Grosz, r.ow a junior has shown
flashes of greatness. He was the
regular quarterback all last sea,- j
son.' The trouble was, Oregon ;losl Y
six out of 10 games although giv-1
ing up only 50 points to the 93
it scored. The Webfools couldn't :
penetrate the goal line when it
counted. , I
"Has Matured" !
"Grosz has matured and I e-1
pect him to have a fine season.. I
Casanova said. Sandy Fraser and
Paul Grover, who backed iif
Grosz last season, are out ofl
school so its up to the 196-pounder
from Kent, Wash., to handle the
bulk of the ball-handling chores.
Willie West, all-coast last sea- j
son, and Dave Grayson, a speed
merchant, are scheduled for reg- i
ular halfback duty. They're both
from San Diego as is Cleveland
Jones, a five-foot-five, 150 pound
half back who has been burning
up the practice field. Dave Pow
ell, a fine plunger who wrecked
Oregon State last ' season, will
hold down the regular fullback
The end positions are strong.
Still another San Diegoan, Alden
Kimbrough, will hold down one
spot with lettcrman Greg Alten
horen at the other. Kent Peter
sen, a fine soph from Long
Beach, Calif., and Greg Willener
of Eugene, bo'.h are ranked high.
A Great Center
Casanova calls Bob Peterson
as fine a center as he coached
here. The first string line also has
lettermen Tom Keele and John ;
Wilcox at tackle and Dave Urotl!
and John Willener, at guard. I
ine Dig question mark up front
is whether Casanova can come
up with a strong second unit
from tackle to tackle. When Ore
gon went to the Rose Bowl fh
1958 the teams' "Ugly Ducklings
or second string linemen, were
among the top factors. Right now,
however, the outlook is not too
bright. ' j i.
Oregon will be an independent
this year, but is still eligible for
the Rose Bowl under the agree
ment ' with the Big Ten. i

BOSTON UPI) Manager Joe

his future in doubt following his
latest verbal duel with General
Manager Frank Lane.
Gordon was steaming Wednes

Laie. in turn, thundered that he
was "in charge of this ball club
and had every right to do so.
Their latest feud stemmed from
what Lane termed "an obvious'
bunt situation in Tuesday night's
Cleveland game here. Gordon ha-J
rookie Chuck Tanner hit away on
the first pitch and a resulting dou
ble play killed Cleveland's best
scoring opportunity in a 1-0 loss
to the Red Sox.
Before Wednesday's 65 defeat
by Boston, Gordon said Lane was
talking out of turn.
"I don't think any general man
ager should second guess a man
ager publicly," he said. "If he
wants to do it in private that's
another story. But not in public.
I've told him that before."
To which Lane exploded: "Sec

such part of the anatomy). I'm
