this afternoon fur a safari into
the town of Buker in quest for
his second victory of the season.
The Bulldozs will be ready and
waiting for the Tiger crew and
capable of putting a dent in the
Tiger's plans. Missing from this
year's Baker team will be many
uf the boys who split a two game
series with the Tigers last year.

to Baker in the first game last
year but came back to edge the
Bulldogs 27 25 in a second clash
Haun will be out to make It
two straight over the Bulldogs
but the weatherman doesn't look
like he is going to offer , any
help.- A wet, muddy field could
seriously hamper the chances of
the Tigers,
Kay Westcnskow and a trio of
fast backs may be slowed down
by mud. The aerial game be
comes a much more dangerous
gamble in the rain. If the big
linemen up front can contain the
liaker backs and stop an aggres

chances will be considerably im
Haun will go with the same
lineup that started last week's
26 0 victory over the Union Bob

pound senior, will start at left
end. Ron Colman, 190 pounds,
will get the call at tackle. . Eric
Ostcrhome will complete the
senior side of the line at right
auard. Gary Voruz, 200 pounds
of junior center, will anchor the
middle of the Tiger line.
Laurence Smutz, who got his
first taste of varsity competition
last week will go again at the
iii'.ht cuard spot. Junior Don
Graham, a standout in practice
this week, will be at tackle and
Dennis Spray, ' little man in the
Tiger line at 170 pounds, will be
the starling right end.
In the backfield things are on-
ferent. Ray Wcslenskow will De
the field general for the Tigers
and Jim Cornctt will move to lefj
half to fill in for the injured

Two new faces will be in the
tartine backfield for La Grande
tonight. Don Smith, a two-year
veteran, will stirt at lullDacx lor
the Tiwers. Smith will be joined
in tonight's starting lineup by
Dale Peterson at right halfback.
Both Smith and Peterson are sen
iors and experienced, capable
performers fcr La Grande.
Peterson has been playing at
the end post for the first part ci
the year but the injury problem
has forced Haun to move him
into the backfield.
Game time is scheduled for

1956, will be named manager of
the Cleveland Indians . between
now and World Series time, It was
learned today from an authorita
tive American League source.
Durocher's hiring by the In
dians will set off a chain of
events that will include:
Joe Gordon, currant Cleve
land manager, moving to Detroit
as manager of the Tigers. -
Jimmie Dykes, present Detroit
pilot, returning to the job he left
as coach of the Pittsburgh Pi
rates. 1 '
And the strong possibility of
Chuck Dressen coming to Cleve
land next year from Los Angeles
to serve as coach under Durocher
just as ne am tor many years
with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Back in '60 Maybe
When he arrived in Pittsburgh
Thursday night for one of his fi
nal NBC-TV assignments. Duroch
er said:
"There's a better than even
chance I will be back in uniform
for the 1960 season.
Ever since he left the Giants in
1955, Durocher has insisted the
only way he would consider com
ing back into baseball would be
under a stock arrangement where
by he would manage the club and
be permitted to hold stock In it.
The Indians have okayed a
stock deal for Durocher, accord
ing to I Pi's source, but it is a
bit different than Leo had sought.
Instead of being given stock in
the Cleveland Baseball Club, Du
rocher is being given shares of
blue-chip stocks now held by the
owners of the Indians.
Insisted on Stock Deal
As (ar back as last July 8, Du
rocher told this reporter in Pitts
burgh that there "is a good pos
sibility I'll be back in , baseball
with an American League club
next year" but he insisted it
would only be under an arrange
ment where he could hold stock.
Since that time, Durocher was
sounded out by Cleveland General
Manager Frank Lane about man
aging the Indians in 1960 and the
final obstacle was removed with
the inclusion of the stock deal.
