Podres Looking Forward
To Change Of Luck In LA
By FRED DOWN
NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (UP)
Johnny Podres, Brooklyn's 1955
World Series hero, is looking for
ward to "a change of luck" when
the Dodgers start the 1958 season in
"I am sorry to leave Brooklyn
and all its memories," the 25-year-
old native of Witherbee, N.Y., con
ceded. "But I suppose the switch to
the' west was inevitable and maybe
that California climate will help."
The remark was made partly In
lest but there was a ring of truth
because, arm anv back ailments
have prevented tJohnny from fully
realizing his Vast potential. His
record last season was only 12-9,
for example, and his four-year rec
ord in the majors is only 41-30.
A more accurate guide to Podres'
ability was reflected in the earned
run averages Which showed him
with a league-leading 2.66 figure
He also led the league with six shut
"I've taken it easy all winter,"
Podres said. "I haven't bean
making personal appearances
and I haven't even seen a foot football
ball football game. I've just relaxed com completely
pletely completely because. I want to be
rtady for the new season."
Podres shrugged off the Dodg
ers' disappointing tnira-piace nn nn-ish
ish nn-ish in 1957 as "just one of those
"The averages showed we had
the best pitching staff in the
league," he pointed. "That was
even with Don Newcombe's off-
year. I'd say having the best pitch pitching
ing pitching in the league is a pretty fair
way to enter a new season. Doesn't
pitching win pennants?"
Podres and Don Drysdaie, the 21-
year old speedballer from Van
Nuys, Calif., should give the Los
Angeles Dodgers as good a 1-2
pitching punch as there will be in
the league. Drysdaie had a 17-9
record last season and his 2.69

earned run average tied Milwau
kee's Warren Spahn for second
place in that department.
"Don't going to ba a great
pitcher," said Podres. "He's got
everything including a real fight fighting
ing fighting heart. He should be one of the
biggest favorites en tha club
pitching in his own back yard."
The big thing with Podres is
whether he can go a full season
without his arm or back acting up.
The Dodgers ,have turned down
several bids estimated at $300,000
for him and have always expected
him to blossom into a 20-game
winner. Yet his 12 victories this
year are i personal high.
"When he's right, said manager
Walt Alston, "he's the equal of any
pitcher in the league; He proved
that in 1955 and he's proved it
since his return from the Navy."
To which Podres responds:
"It's nice to get that kind of a
vote of confidence, but it'd be even
nicer to get those 20 victories one
of these years."

Resuming Role of Critic
Adlai Raps Republicans Failure
To Woo Poor Peoples Of World
. w I
CHICAGO Dec. 17 (UP) Adlai E. Stevenson resumed his role as a critic of the
"Eisenhower administration with a speech blaming the COP for the U. S. missile lag
and for failure to match Soviet progress in winning over under-developed nations.
Stevenson, who recently wound up a stint as State Department consultant on
" the NATO conference, urged drastic U.S. action to restore confidence among NATO
countries in "America's good faith and determination to come to the aid of her
Allies, even at the risk of direct nucjear retaliation."
Stevenson, twice defeated Democratic Presidential candidate and titular leader
'of his party, spoke yesterday before the Illinois division of the American Civil Liber Liberties
ties Liberties Union.
Stevenson also said the nation's greatest challenge was in Russia's rapid prog-
