Colorful Nickname
i Inspires Syracuse
Gridders To Win
UPI Staff Writer
NEW YOHK i ITI i Syracuse
' is out today to ride o nickname
up the gridiron glory road in the
' manner successful from the days
: of the "Four Horsemen" to the
: "Chinese Bandits."
There is a theory that the
modern college athlete is a blase
young man who refuses to .be
driven to inspired heights by the
"corny" melodramatics of the
"pep talk." Yet, somehow, ' an
appealing nickname gets them to
"put out" on their own.
The "Four Horsemen" of No
tre Dame are even greater in
memory, instead of remembered
merely as another fine Irish
team, because of the tag which
the late Grantland Kice, hung on
them. And down at LSU, Paul
Dietzel transformed an ordinary
defensive unit into a battling
band which fought with the feroc-
ity of their namesakes by label
i ing- them the "Chinese Bandits."
Deny Move
To Coast
nancial adviser to - Washington
Senators owner Calvin Griffith
has suggested that another Amer
icanLeague club president will
try to move his team to the West
Coast in 1861.
Attorney C. Leo Deorsey, a for
mer director of the Washington
club and Griffith's adviser, made
it clear that he was talking about
Arnold Johnson, owner of the
Kansas City Athletics.
Deorsey made his statement in
charging that American League
club owners "buckled" under the
threat of baseball anti-trust legis
lation and blocked Griffith's at
tempt to move the Senators to
, Johnson, contacted in New York
City, immediately tried to knock
down Deorsey's intimation that he
wanted to take the Athletics ' to
the Pacific Coast.
."I'd have to. pay rent in
two stadiums,'' he said. "We've
agreed to a renewal c( our lease
in Kansas-City through 1S64. I
certainly couldn't pay rent for
two ballparks.
. . "As baseball expands, it will
"have to be to large cities like
New 'York and Los Angeles which
can support two clubs. But I'm
not one of them. '
Maybe the designation isn't as
pho'.etic or colorful, but Syra
cuse is shooting fur the football
heights with a massive and mus
cular line which has become
known as the "Sizeable Seven."
They are sizeable, averaging 6
feet, 3 inches and 216 pounds
an average dissipated considera
bly by one "midget" of a mere
Ittl pounds. But t h r o u g h the
tackle to tackle middle the
weights read like this: 228, 202.
230. 230 and 22G.
"It is,'.' says line coach Dick
Beyer, "the best line we've ever
had at Syracuse and one of the
best I've ever seen.''
Beyer is a man accustomed to
dealing in beef on the hoof. He
does it himself four or five
nights a week as a professional
"rassler" while trying to earn
enough money "to be able to &f
ford to teach."
If this seems a bit incongru
ous, considering that he deals
during football hours with col
lege students, it must be accept
ed that the 230-pound Beyer is a
'good guy on the rassling cir
cuit. It wouldn't do to pulverize
a mat opponent with foul and
dastardly tricks and then attempt
to teach undergrads the tenets of
fair play and sportsmanship.
Can Handle "Babies"
So it is that his "babies," fel
lows like 228-pound guard Roger
i Hound Dog) Davis, can look up
to him, and he can handle 6-foot,
4-inch Jack Bemiller. th center
who hopes to be a mortician and
currently is interring rival ball
