Casey advises of the new York in Wes a Casey Stengel who retired yesterday As manager mets. Huddles with Wes Westrum who was named to finish out the year next year As Metsy Pilot. Westrum is one of the leading candidates for the Post up mets seek Casey a replacement Hod ires Coil id be n new manager new York up a the next order of business for the new York mets will be finding a new manager and the Man most Are guessing it will be claims he a perfectly Happy where he is in Washington. Of All the possible candidates to succeed 75-Yearold Casey Stengel there a Little doubt that senator manager ii Hodges rates near or at the very top of the list. Hodges was an All time favorite in Brooklyn when he played there for the dodgers Holovak coaching fourth Grid season by Dick Dew Andover mass. Up a if longevity records were kept in the musical chairs game played by professional football coaches Mike Holovak would be a Good bet to be permanently seated. The coach of the american football leagues Boston patriots is about to Start his fourth full season in the frequently Brief pro coaching business. He carries a pro record of 33 wins 14 losses and three ties. The tall soft spoken Holovak was deposed As coach at his Boston College Alma mater before going to work As director of player personnel in the infant Al despite an excellent record As a collegiate head coach of 49 wins 29 losses and three ties. So the Man who has helped build Boston into a reasonably solid pro franchise now owns a career head coaching Mark of 82 wins 43 losses and seventies a an entirely respectable record. The thing that most endears Lansford pa., native Holovak to bostonian is not merely that his teams win but that they do it without the High priced Talent that normally make up a consistent Winner. The patriots have for example posted a record of 26 wins 13 losses and three ties during the past three full seasons. And All the while their leading ground gainer was not a huge fullback but a slender halfback named Larry Garron who has been forced by the absence of a Backfield Muscleman to serve in the obviously ill fitting fullback role. Holovak is the coach responsible for the conversion of onetime Minnesota quarterback Gino Cappelletti to split end an important decision in Light of the fact that the afle a place kicking Ace and most valuable player set a scoring record last fall and was one of pro football s most feared pass receivers. And it has been Holovak who has guided the patriots to finishes of second first and second in the afle a Eastern division during the last three years around quarterback babe Parilli a Veteran Journeyman earlier found wanting by National football league coaches. Holovak has some pretty Farouk ideas. He does no to believe for example that the patriots should go All out to win exhibition games. Instead they Experiment. So they be lost 15 straight Over the last three seasons. That a a record that would Send most pro coaches Back to the family farm to raise chickens. But the patriots have gone along with Holovak because his clubs have been highly successful once the games started counting in the standings.

The red sox a single game out of the cellar will Send Dave \441ii i in Banin Bemidji Minn. Up a the Minnesota Vikings monday announced the acquisition of Veteran halfback Billy Ray Barnes from the Philadelphia eagles for a future draft Choice. The 30-Yearold Barnes is an eight year Veteran of the National football league. Morehead 7-15 to the Hill to oppose Phil Ortega 12-13 in the first game of a twi night doubleheader.

Winslow plumbing amp heating Supply co. 303 depot Street Tel. 26308 and he was certainly one of the most popular mets when he finished his career with them before being named Washington manager in May of 1963. Someone spoke to Hodges about the possibility of his returning to the mets As manager after Stengel broke his hip last month. That someone Wasny to a baseball official he was a writer and Hodges merely laughed. A first of All a a said the Washington manager a i owe my main allegiance to the Man in a working for and the Man who brought me Here. George Selkirk. A secondly i done to think the mets would Ever consider me As manager and third of All in a very Happy where i am. Right did no to Hodges feel he could be even happier yet working closer to his Home in Brooklyn Hodges smiled and it was obvious being the modest honest Type individual he is that he did no to care to pursue the subject any longer. The senators Are Happy with him. So Happy that they signed him to a Long term contract not so Long ago. But they probably would not stand in his Way if some other club came along with a far better offer. Significantly or not Hodges was the first name Casey mentioned monday when he spoke chargers Quot old pros could re key Iii of san Diego Calif. Up a the 1965 edition of the san Diego chargers has the potential and experience to win the american football league championship this year. The team is loaded with individual stars who have played together for years and have blended into a sturdy unit. Flanker Lance Alworth is the Man Many fans come to see. He ranks As one of the most feared pass receivers in the league because of his great Speed extraordinary jumping ability and ability to hold onto the Ball. Fullback Keith Lincoln scored two spectacular touchdowns in last seasons All Star game and is consistently capable of breaking up any game. His running companion Paul Lowe returned the opening Kickoff 105 Yards in the first Charger exhibition game when the club was formed in 1960 and has been getting bigger and shifter since. Both Lincoln and Lowe have been slowed often by injuries but provide exciting running pass catching ability and Good blocking. Offensive tackle Ron mix has been All league Ever since the american football league was formed. His 250 pounds Are combined with sprinters Speed and cat quickness. He is the Bird Hunting seasons open Montpelier the Vermont fish and game department today announced the general migratory Bird Hunting seasons As provided by Federal regulation or by selecting a Choice of seasons offered by the fish and wildlife service As in the Case of ducks and geese.

Homers not Only key to twins Al Success of those players who had helped the mets. A i must speak Well of Hodges a said the out going manager. A the had the bad knee when he was with us but he played better on one knee than some people played with of course there is always the Chance interim manager Wes Westrum May be re hired next year. That would depend a great Deal on How Well the mets do from now until the end of the season. Since taking Over for Casey on july 25, Westrum has led the mets to 12 victories against 24 defeats for a .333 percentage. That a slightly better than the .326 Mark the mets were at when Stengel went into the Hospital. Mets president George Weiss gave no hint one Way or another As to whether Westrum would be re engaged for next year. He said Westrum would finish the season after which a meeting will be held to determine next years manager. That Weiss explained is exactly what would have happened had Stengel remained manager of the mets through this season. Other names Are being bruised about like Yogi Berra Eddie Stanky and even Johnny Keane Leo Durocher and Paul Richards but Hodges would seem to have the inside track. By Leon Ard a. Gran Ato up sports writer the Minnesota twins Are feared for their Long Ball hitters but they can scratch and scramble for runs when they have to. The sluggers Are Harmon Kil Lebrew with 22 Home runs Bob Allison with 20, Jimmie Hall with 18, Don Mincher with 17 and Zoilo versa lies and Tony Oliva with 16 each. But monday night at Detroit Hank Aguirre held the twins bats witless for six innings. So the twins found other ways to get runs a with singles and sacrifices a and beat the tigers 3-2 in la innings. In other american league action the new York Yankees beat the los Angeles Angels 4-2 and Cleveland was rained out at Kansas City. No National league games were scheduled. Mincher opened the Lith with a single. He was sacrificed to second and scored the winning run Chi Sandy Valdespino a two out single. Mincher had broken up Aguirre s potential no hitter in the seventh with a single that scored Joe Nossek who had reached on an error. The other Minnesota run came on a walk a sacrifice and a single by versa lies in the seventh. Willie Horton had three singles in four trips and drove in both Detroit runs. Johnny Kloppstein the third Minnesota Pitcher was credited with his seventh Victory in to decisions. Larry Sherry was the loser his sixth setback against three victories.

The Angels loaded the bases in the fourth inning and threatened again in the seventh but Cullen worked his Way out of both jams with Little damage. George Brunet was the loser. It was his ninth defeat in 17 decisions. Hayward Paquin Fop it. Anthony . Golf More than too golfers competed in the 1965 it. Anthony . Scotch foursome tournament held last weekend at the Bennington course.

Defensively end Earl Faison and tackle Ernie Ladd Are the players to watch. Both Are tall and wide and Are experienced enough to be hard to fool. They also Are Well schooled in keeping their hands up while Rushing the passer making it difficult for him to see his target and put anything on the Ball. The key to the club this year will be quarterback John Hadl who shared duties last year with Tobin Rote. Hadl has been erratic in his three years peeping for the starting role but the knowledge that Rote has retired and wont be around to spell him could give him More Confidence. Alworth Don Norton and tight end Dave Kocourek Are proven receivers for his passes. The offensive line led by mix also features Ernie Wright at left tackle Walt Sweeney and Shea at guards and Sam Gruneisen at Center. All have worked together for at least the past two years with mix Wright Norton and Kocourek in their sixth year. Rookies to watch will be All american Steve Delong at defensive end punter linebacker Rick Redman quarterback Steve Tensi halfback Gene Foster and guard John Farris. Eagles stay nit ii fete rookies to make crude Hershey a. Up a if today were the opening Day in the National football league you a recognize the Philadelphia eagles practically Man for Man. Just space a couple of rookies Here and there among the Veteran campaigners of last season and you have the combination that head coach and general manager Joe Kuharich believes will better the six victories of a year ago. A a we re optimistic but we re not claiming any championship. We re not ready for that yet a Kuharich said. A we believe that the team playing together As a unit for the second year will be a group of players who know each other know the potentials of each other and will be geared for a Good Kuharich was looking to the Start of the season As Cut off Day approached by leaps and Bounds. The Camp squad still was Over the 50 Mark and the mandatory cuts Are due tuesday. There appeared to be no youngsters ready to rip and tear into a seasoned performers spot. There were some Good ones True to be retained. But no drastic rip out of the old guard. If it were Kickoff time for the ones that count the eagles would present an offensive unit of Pete Retzlaff and Ray Pelage at the ends Lane Howell and Bob Brown at tackle Jim Skaggs and de Blaine at guard with Jim Ringo Center Kuharich said. Norm Snead would be at quarterback Timmy Brown and Earl Gros the running backs and Ron Goodwin the flanker. The Only stranger to Eagle attire would be Howell an Al Veteran who came to the flock in a Trade with the giants. That s the eagles offensive team which Kuharich said a will run and pass about 50-50.�?� the defense would have George Tarasovic Bobby Richards Floyd Peters and John Meyers up front with Maxie Baughan Mike Morgan and Dave Lloyd the linebackers. The defensive backs would be Irv Cross Nate Ramsey and Joe Scarpaty and most Likely Al Nelson the no. 3 draft Choice from Cincinnati. The eagles look the same As a year ago. They Hope to be better.
