Overall Picture for Indians Is Optimistic One Says Lane
By Rich P a s s a n (jambar sports editor) L a s t week t h i s reporter had the d i s t i n c t pleasure of l i s t e n i n g to perhaps the most dynamic and c o l o r f u l man i n b a s e b a l l today, general manager F r a n k L a n e of the C l e v e l a n d I n d i a n s . T h e event was the " G e t A c q u a i n t e d With the I n d i a n s " l u n c h e o n for the p r e s s and radio men from the Y o u n g s t o w n a r e a . It was h e l d i n the J a d e Room of the Mural Room. Lane completed two major trading deals this past winter. These transactions brought johnny Temple and Bubba P h i l l i p s to the Tribe. Lane feels that even though he gave up 19 game winner C a l M c L i s h , his pitching staff will be better in 1960. The reason for this, being a tighter infield defensively which will ultimately add two or more victories to each pitcher's record. Lane went on record as saying that Cleveland has the best infield i n the American League. The addition of Temple w i l l help Woodie Held to become a better shortstop defensively while V i c Power and Bubba P h i l l i p s are first rate infielders. The outfield with Tito prancona in left, Rocky Colavito in right and either Jim P i e r s a l l or Carroll Hardy in center combines speed, power and good hitting.

Youngstown Drops Final Home Tilt, 97-76
Yugovich Turns in Best Game -of Career With 33 Points
By Pete Arlow (jambar sports writer) Youngstown dropped a 97-76 decision to Akron U . i n the home cage finale. T h i s game marks the Penguins fourth straight loss with three suffered at home. Mickey Yugovich proved to be the only bright spot as he hit for the highest total of his career by garnering 33 points. It was the finest show Mickey put on i n his four years of cage action. . " Y u g " now has 1854 points and i s the second all-time scorer next to Tony Knott. The game can be summed up with a glance at the statistics. Akron hit on 55% from the field while Youngstown shot a little under 40%. The zips also dominated the boards and out-rebounded the Penguins 50-31. Akron proved to be unbeatable with their sharp field goal accuracy throughout the game. Climon L e e , 5 ' 9 " junior tossed i n 32 points for Akron on an amazing 14 out of 19 shots from the floor, with 7 for 7 in the second half. Two other Akron players hit in double figures. They were Bob Whaley, with 21 points, and Alex Adams, with 24 points. The Penguins close the season with three away games and will have a hard time finishing with a .500 mark.

Four Teams

Track Team Dropped
The track team will be discontinued with the opening of the spring sports season this year. '

The overall picture, according to Lane is an optimistic one. Although lie didn't come right out and say that the Indians are going to win the flag, he did say that i f they didn't the race w i l l be mighty close. The team Lane fears most i n 1960 i s not the Chicago White Sox but the New York Yankees. The feeling i s that Early Wynn w i l l win no more than 1.4 or 15 games for the White Sox this year. The younger pitchers w i l l have to come through. Speaking of young pitchers I neglected to examine the Cleveland pitching staff which Lane had nothing but high, praise for. The moundsmen are led by Gary B e l l 23, Jim Grant 23, Jim Perry 22, Herb Score 25, Bobby Locke 25, and the " o l d man" of the staff Jack Harshman 32. The acquisition of veterans Ernie Johnson and Leo K i e l y not only strengthens the bullpen but adds the necessary experience.

Charges filed against him ranged from car thefts and robberies to assualt with a deadly weapon, v/hen he shot a policeman in the leg. Actually it wasn't a question of his guilt or innocence that led to his unprecendented battle to escape execution. The death of the court reporter, before the trial notes were transcribed, led to the legal razzle dazzle that has cost the taxpayers an estimated quarter of a million dollars. Upon the death of the court reporter, another reporter started the tremendous job of translating the trial notes. Chessman contends that the trial records, are faulty and that he hasn't had a fair shake and that the old notes should be put aside and a new trial begun. Thus began the series.of appeals to the high courts, i n 1958, however, Superior Judge Walter R. Evans ruled that the corrected transcript ' was sufficient to express the trial adequately. Technicalities of legal arguments became undermined in a tidal wave of public opinion and a flurry of editorials and petitions urging that Chessman's life be spared. In a sense the many delays and the lengthy and repetitious legal maneuvering have tended to a caricature the American system of justice. There i s , however, a chance that Chessman will be able to escape the gas chamber and have his sentence commuted. Capita! Punishment May Be Abolished This w i l l be possible only if the California Legislature rules for the abolishment of capital punishment. This question has cropped up again and again in the past and has been defeated eachtime by the lawmakers. Opinion varies decidedly among the legislators and Gov.

Opinion around Sacramento has it thatthe debate w i l l be short and that the legislature w i l l vote to keep the death penalty despite the furor caused over chessman.
