A BIT OF THIS AND A BIT OF THAT [By JACK (Peerlew) McGRATH «_ Baseball fans will be watching the progress madeYy three hurl- TK ih *TM 36r leagues *« ^ar.

To «jve you an idea of their decline let's look at the record. In 1948, they won 59 games among them and only Beardon won 2( and lost seven that season, his cookie year, including the playoff game that sent the Cleveland In dians into the world series.

Newhouser hampered by a sore shoulder, won six and lost six in limited appearances. Beardon. played for both Washington and Detroit arjd won three and lost four. Schmitz was able to win only twice while dropping six decisions with the Cubs and the Brooklyn Dodgers. Still Young. And just- fur argument their reversal of form cannot be explained by age. Newhouser, although a veteran of 12 seasons, is only 30. Schmitz and, Bearden are 31. All three are counting the number of birthday candles normally associated with a pitcher's prime period. All three are getting w h a t amounts to fresh starts this season. NewKbuser is making one Isst try with the Tigers. Prince Hal, once the peer of all American League burlers, has said he would .rather quit the game than turn in a mediocre performance. Schmitz, once one of the National League's most stylish mounds- men, is starting his first full year with a contending team, the Dodgers. Brooklyn is lacking in pitching depth with its right-handed ace, Don Newcombe, now clad in Army khaki. Schmitz can figure on getting a thorough trial to regain his old-time form. Bearden is seeking to regain his confidence with the St. L o u i s Browns, a club that is rebuilding under the leadership of Bill Veeck and Rogers Hornsby. The Browns with only Ned Carver as a proven moundsman, can afford to bend over backwards to help Bearden. It should be interesting to watch their progress in the 1952 grind.

Christenberry Sick, Rulings Delayed New York (AP) -- Because of the illness of Chairman Robert Christenberry, the State Athletic Commission yesterday postponed announcement of a ruling on the legality of exclusive service con- Lippy Wants Lefi-Handed Flychaser BY OSCAR FRALEY New York (UP)--Leo Durocher's hard-earned right to run the New York Giants without front office interference promised to pay off today in solution of his'greatest personnel problem. For one of the shining lights at the Giant training camp is a 22- year-old outfielder named Gail Henley who could fill the aching need for a left handed hitting fly- chaser. Yet Henley wouldn't even be with the club except for Leo's "aggressive defense" last winter. Henley has been knocking the cover off the ball this spring. But last fall the Giant front office wanted to leave him on a minor league draft roster where he would have been eligible for the baseball draft. Durocher put his "foot down." Henley was retained. Which was a dictatorial action on Leo's part which the Giants would have--and did--ignore three years ago. Dark Days. Those were the days when Leo, after shifting to the Giants in mid- 1948 from Brooklyn, was finding the Polo Grounds a rough row to hoe. There v/as a general reluctance on. the part of fans--and front office--to accept him. Leo immediately wanted to part with the slow-fooled siege guns who had set a major league record with 221 home runs in 1947, and finished fourth. When the club finished fifth in 1948, he managed to part with Walker Cooper and Johnny Mize during the 1949 season. When the club still finished fifth, Leo finally got some action. That winter he let go of Sid Gordon, Willard Marshall, Buddy Kerr and Sam Webb for the Alvin Dark- Eddie Stanky infield combination. The team came on to-finish third in 1950. But the string-pulling still was being done, to a great extent, by the front office, so- last year the reformed "new" Durocher took several daring gambles which, if they .had backfired, could have meant the loss of all he had gained, if not his job. Loc*kman Shift. One of these moves, hotly contested by Owner Horace Stoneham, was to put Outfielder Whitey Lockman on first base. Leo's maneuver- ngs appeared useless as the Giants bogged down in an 11-game losing streak. The Giants were on a road xip when one official relayed Stoneham's "suggestion" that Lockman be retained in the outfield. "Tell him," Leo barked, "that m going to play Lockman on first base if it costs me my job." Later, Leo brought a badly lumping Bobby Thomson in from :he outfielfi--over even Thomson's objections--and made him into one of the league's most promising third basemen. How well he came Jut of his slump is etched among aaseball's most thrilling moments. Bobby's homer, and Leo'e physic guesses, won the pennant for the victory-starved Giants. They also won for Leo virtually unrestricted freedom with the managerial reins. Thus this winter he was able to demand, and get, Hen- '.ey. Back in the spring of 1949, Leo .vantcd to keep this youngster. He was vetoed. Now it's a different story and, with Henley's determination fired by Durocher's faith, it may develop into another master move by the "silent strategist" of the Polo Grounds.

National Catholic Invitational Tournament right here in Troy starting Saturday is going to face the most imnnH «JM m!ln^»^»%,. H-,._ r · · . -^ -...wui. important milestone thus far in its« young career. And to a man these college sports authorities tell you that the future of the NCIT is bright, indeed. And for a fellow who takes it all in stride, a guy who shrugged off his share of hard luck with an Irish grin and kept in there swinging, the intensified interest in the NCIT comes as no surprise. Speaking, of course, of Tommy Thomas, the newspaperman who came up with the idea of a Catholic college basketball tournament four years ago. Behind the NCIT is the National Catholic Intercollegiate Association, another plan he put into effect. It is this association which now is shaping up to be a well-knit, solidified organization, that will assure success to the NCIT. Correspondence that Thomas has received from schools · about the country in recent weeks is a criterion of just how powerful the NCIT can be. The biggest schools m .the country, Catholic institutions that is, are evincing more uian the passing interest or courteous attention they indicated in past years. At long last most of them are waking up to its possibilities. Eye Troy Last week Father Silas Rooney athletic director of St. Bonaventure, was here. He met with Thomas and made no secret of the fact that Catholic colleges are going to have an eye on Troy this month. Danny Lynch, St. Francis ol Brooklyn coach who has had great faith in the NCIT and NCIA since their inception, reports similar speculation in the New York City area. Scotty McDonald, out at Loyola of Chicago, reports t h a t interest is being aroused to form a West Coast Catholic Conference. To Meet Here Two important items are picked out of all the talk regarding the I NCIA and the NCIT. One is t h a t ! the association meeting March 20 in Troy, at which, it is hoped, some) two dozen or more colleges will be both programs he originated--the NCIT and the NCIA. "Yes, Troy has now taken R place in the national basketball picture again," he says. "And believe me, a. lot depends on Troy and the area. If we put over the 1952 tournament, we'll be hearing from every corner of the country." Williams Wins~ Dual British Title London (AP)--Johnny Williams won the British National and Em pire heavyweight titles last night by outpointing Jack Gardner in 15 rounds. Gardner weighed 214% to 194% for Williams.
