TUESDAY, MARCH 18, 1952 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAdS FIFTEEN THE OLD GUARD — Though new faces spotlight most National League line-ups tlvs year, Manager Charlie Drev-;en plans to go along with the same infield that fin.shed the 1 C 61 campaign. Brooklyn's stellar inner defense is composed of, left Jackie Robinson, second base; Gil Hodges, first base;-Roy Campanella. catcher; Billy Cox, third base; and Pee Wee Reese, shortstop.—NEA. Sports Roundup Weather Upsetting Teams Trying to Play 011 Coast LOS ANGELES, March 18, tf>— In view of the weather around these parts for the past week, the question of whether the big leaguers will be able to make out a '53 exhibition schedule at 1o- day''s meeting here appears to be purely academic. The Cleveland Indians have been wandering around the coast for days, getting in a game only now and then between the, ah, showers. The Giants have moved over from Arizona for a quick riffle up the coast to San Francisco, and Manager Leo Durocher still has the same problem he had when he opened camp three weeks ago- filling Eddie Stanky's shoes at second base and at lead-off in the batting order. Davey Williams is fielding beautifully, but he still can't hit. Bobby Hofman, an "almost" big leaguer for the past three years, might yet beat out the bonus boy, or at least split the job with him. Whitey Lockman is trying manfully to take Stanky's No. 1 spot in the line-up, but he isn't a heavy enough hitter to scare pitchers into giving him walks. Leo plans to give Hank Thompson, his Negro third-baseman, a shot at the second base chore soon. Hank doesn't much like the idea. Tommy Byrne, whom the Yanks finally passed on to the St. Louis Browns last season because his lack of control gave Manager Casey Stengel kidney stones, is a happy athlete at the prospect of steady work and feels this is the year he will live up to every promise. Mused the handsome lefthander, "My control seems sharper than it ever did before at this time." Tommy is 32, and it has been nearly 32 years since the Yanks pulled him off the Wake Forest rampus and started him up through their chain. His best seasons in the big show were '49 and '50, in each of which he won 15 games. In '49 he gave up only 125 hits in 196 innings, but he issued 179 walks. If Tommy does come through, and Ned Carver has another 20 victories in his young system, the Brownies could be very rough in spots.

Airlines Can Check Pilots For Everything But Judgment int pnrllclpnnls In tho pilot's nf- j judgment. in somn degree tho intangibles of enipt lo sot n now speed record lOlwoon the two cltIPS. Hoosted by a booming IfiO-mtH;- an-hnur tail wind, I IIP four-engine plane hit a speed at our point of )IO miles an hour, nnd this was hrnugh rough wpnllipr. People got sirk. fonts nnd mnts opplod down into thp aisles from uggngo racks. Thp iwo steward- •ssos had nil Ihpy could do for n vhilo just lo keep the place in order. For approximately onp hour of he two-hour-and-M-minuto I rip, >assengors wore required lo re< main strapped in their seals no smoking, no I rips lo tho rest wins. During nil this Ihe pilot Jubl- anlly voiced over Ihe intercom he plane's steady and spectacular gain in speed, us well as his own lopes Ihnl Iho speed record could )0 broken. That might have been Ihp 'way o try lo establish a speed record, Dut il was no way lo establish public confidence in air travel. Unfortunately for the nil-lines and for the passeiiRers who ride hem, there is no way to lest a pilot's judgment accurately and ompleloly. The airlines' system of screening for judgment and general compoleneo is thorough and exhaustive, but It Is not foolproof. They have an agreement with Iho pilots' union, for example, that they can fire a beginning co-pilot during tho first year of his cm ployment for almost any reason whatsoever. "We con fire him If we don't like the color of his hnir," says one airline official. This enable? Capt. Fred V. Clark retired last plane WM afire, released A ffft *#• tlngulshnr containing « dftflprtUI gns, and that the pilot and Cd» pilot worn overcome by it because" they had failed to operate certain vcnf.fta.llon valves — standard procedure undep the circumstances. One of the most fantastic stories of pilot error happened during the war when an airline freight handler falsified records to got his freight handling hours recorded as yenr nt GO as n major airline pilot j flying hours. And, with virtually vho had never hnd an accident or scratched a passenger in 33 years and 3,000.000 miles of flying. "Most accidents." C'lipt. Clark snys flnlly, "are caused by pilot nrelossness." The Civil Aeronautics Hoard ins put il Ibis wiiy: ''The possi- )illty of human error under great nental stress is well documented IT nir transport experience." This error under stress wns ragically tlemonstrated in I he •I'nsh of an airliner near Ml. Jarmel, Pa,, In loople aboard, 1M8, 'when all 43 including famed showman Karl Carroll, were killed. From examination of the wreck- igc and from certain known facts, lie CAB determined that the crew, n the erroneous impression the no flying experience, he got himself made a senior pilot for the airline, The inevitable happened when fho plane he was flying In Florida struck n line squall. The pilot just didn't, have Ihe experience to cope with Ihc situation and the plane went, into a tint spin nnd landed In a swamp. Hy Ihe greatest of good luck there were no deaths. Only after Iho crash did the Incredible, still little-known story of the pilot's false record come out. That was war time and under war time pressure a lot of things can happen •— such as overloading of commercial planes—which the public doesn't always know my- thing about.
