Syracuse Herald Journal- Schayes Is Still Outside Nats Tepee
Pruning time is fast approaching for several of the 18 basketeers assembled at the training camp of the Syracuse Nationals and indications are that five men will be released after drills tomorrow. Coach Al Cervi wasted no time in starting arduous drills. He scrimmaged the squad for 2½ hours yesterday and had two drills today at Manlius. Dick Farley, John Kerr and Ken McBride appeared to be the most likely looking prospects among the rookie contingent on hand yesterday. Veterans, with the exception of Red Rocha and Dolph Schayes were on hand. Rocha will arrive Oct. 6, and Schayes is still a holdout. Dolph and Cervi were together on a fishing jaunt Wednesday and Schayes met with general manager Leo Ferris for nearly an hour yesterday, but they still failed to agree on terms. Cervi remained a bit on the pessimistic side in pre-season predictions at the clambake for stockholders last night, but Ferris predicted a first or second place finish for the Syracusans.
