York Giants' halfback was elected by the players as the out-,

ENELDA DIC. 26 JOE WILLIAMS SPORTS
Our idea that the Yankees' Don Larsen should be tappped for
the baseball Half of Fame went over with a bang. Rather a messy
one. we are pained to report. It failed to survive.
Although a perfect game, i.e., one in which nobody gets to
first base, comes along about as often as a ueorge m. conan
(there have been only seven, one of dubious, validity, since base
ball was Invented), we are apparently one of the few jaspers in the
whole of North America who bo bUfi-eyed over such a feat.
James Boyle, Manhattan, patiently explains: "In a perfect
game the skill of the pitcher is subordinate to at least three vital
elements: (1) errorless, if not sensational, support; (2) a knowing,
stimulating catcher: (3) luck, meaning the pitcher's.'
On the same subject, Roy Wieboldt, also of Manhattan: "You
attach too much credit to a single game. How about Johnny Bur Burnett's
nett's Burnett's nine hits in one game in 1832? Nobody did that before or
since. (Ed note: It went 18 innings.) Joe Oeschger and Leon Ca-
dore pitched a 26-inning stalemate in 1920, another unprecedented

"Methinks you mistake glamour for genius."
And from out on the Island. Jee Jess offers a compromise:
"Certainly unusual deeds should be commemorated. Let a special
lection the Hall be set aside for this purpose. Strike off bronze
miniatures and exhibit them as soon as time permits. In this way
even if the performer eventually fails of selection, his one big mo moment
ment moment will be preserved for posterity."
Weil buy that. Actually, recognition of the rare and dramatic
achievement, on its own, is all we've been interested in from the
tart. Whether a Don Larsen could have carried Cy Young a hang
over (and old Cy was an excellent judge of bourbon) was, and is, be
side the point. Our premise is simple; what's a Hall of Fame for
if not to testify to history's highlights?
HARD TO BALANCE
Particularly puzzling in this debate is the official tendency to
low-rate such achievements as freaks of fate which must be re remorselessly
morselessly remorselessly ignored lest in some cockeyed way they give the
Cooperstown as tique shoppe a bad name.
Except for certain regulations concerning length of service,
tnd related time factors, no standard criterion of selection exists,
nor is it possible to establish one. Consequently, we fisd a Cy Young

Charley Robertson's perfect game (the White Sox beating the
Tigers) has been unhonored and unnoted for 35 years. His over-all
record was not dazzling but, according to the rules, he's ineligible
anyway, not having pitched 10 years.
Addie Joss, shy by one year, is rendered ineligible by the
same minimum. The Cleveland left-hander was outstanding; he
led the league, had four 20-game seasons, a perfect game, a no hit hitter

Ted Williams, the celebrated

the money, the event hit the base baseball

Adcock never caught up with
Gomez but the incident caused a
stir for weeks afterward. i
Don Larsen, the Yaskees un
predictable right-hander, was the
Hurler who pitched the perfect
game in the World Series against
the Dodgers on Oct. 8. That per
formance undoubtedly was base
ball's most talked-about event of
the year and it gave the Yankees
a tnree-game to two cage in tne
world series which they went an
to wm in seven games.
Larsen's perfect same plus the
fact that Casey Stengel wrapped
up his sixth world championship
took some of the edge off Brook Brooklyn's

the National League pennant, but
even so, raw oiseoau ians win ior ior-aet
aet ior-aet how Milwaukee had the flag
practically in its mitts only to
blow it in the last three flays.
From the Dodgers' point of view
no one figured more prominently
in their climb than 39-year-old Sal
Maglie, who was considered all
"washed up" when they got him
from Cleveland "for a song" on
May 16. Maglie proceeded to
astound everyone by winning u
games for the Dodgers, including
a no hit, no run effort against the
Phillies, Sept. 25.
Other Ne Hitters
In addition to the no hitters
turned in by Larsen and Maglie,
there were two others in 1956. Carl
Erskine of Brooklyn pitched the
second one of hi scarcer on May
12 against the Giants aqd South

Ttroughout the entire campaign
there was a constant undertone of

Take the case of Brooklyn's big

The 1956 campaign was also one
in which Mickey Mantle's support

WASHINGON, Dec. 28 (UP)
a Diro neutved to be extinct has
made a sudden reappearance.
. Tht flighty creature is known as
Arment's cowbird a black robin-
like bird with a sliehtlv dissinatprl
look. No one had seen one since
The National Zoo sot a bird
shipment from the Colombian iun-
gles yesterday and there sat lit
tle old Arment's cowbird.
Herbert Friedman, curator of
birds at the Smithsonian Institu
tion, said the last known Arment
was spotted along the Caribbean
Coast 90 years ago. After that.
"It's a little like be ne lesallv
dead, vnil know In hp a hird that
hasnt been seen since 1866,"
Frieda an said. You're not exact
