This ruling was meant to cover any "free agent" or a player recruited from any of the teams not playing in the playoff series. Frisch Released as Card Manager Humor That Deposed Manager May Go to New York Giants ST. LOUIS-(/l')-Frankie Frisch was released Sunday a.s manager of the St. Louis Cardinals of the National League. The announcement was made by President Sam Breadon just before the start of Sunday's game with the Pittsburgh Pirates, is effective at once. Frisch's release Coach Mike Gon/ales will run the tram the rust of the season. Frisch had been with the Cardinals since 1927. He became manager during the middle of the 1933 season. Breadon .said; "I believe a change in managers of the club is necessary for 1939. Frank has been other manager u.s longer than any since Branch Rickey (Rickey is now general manager). I do not blame Frank for the position of the (club this year. Oe has not clone anything we can find fault with and he has been a good manager. "He has been paid up for the ra- mainder of the season and is leaving the club so he can be free to negotiate with other clubs seeking managers." Formerly With Giants Frisch came to St. Douis from the New York Giants' in exchange for Rogers Homsby, and while at the helm won one pennant and a World Series, both in 1934. As a player he was recognized as one of the greatest of all second basemen. Frisch declined to comment on the action of the club. "I intend to stay in St. Louis for a couple of days and then go to my home in New York. I have nothing in prospect at this time in the way of a baseball offer." May Manage Giants There has been gossip to the effect that Frisch might become manager of the New York Giants if Bill Terry moved into the front office. Terry is reported eager to give up active field management and regards Frisch favorably for his successor. Such a move should be welcomed by New York Giant fans. Frisch broke Giants in 1919 direct from Fordham University in New York city. If the Cardinals have determinde on a new manager they have not made the choice public. Mentioned as possibilities are Charley Grimm, released this year as manager of the Chicago Cubs and now a radio baseball commentator for a Chicago station; Burleigh Grimes, manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and one time a Card- "Golden Tornado" Grid Team of Haynesville Ready for Opening Football Clash Against Hope Friday Nig ht HAYNESVILLE, Ln. - (Special) The Haynesville "Golden Tornado" finished out the second week of pre-season training with a minimum of sore muscles, blistered feet, and other minor ailments. This was clue chiefly to the fact that the boys reported in by far better physical condition than usual.

Texas University Team Is Improved Bible Hopes to Pull the Longhorns Out of Cellar This Year By RAY NEUMANN AUSTIN, Texas—&—Fleet backs, working deception and aerial magic behind a reinforced line, hope to cast off the chains which have bound the University of Texas in the Southwest Conference cellar the past three years. Dana Xenophon Bible, imported at ?15,000 a year to rebuild the fallen gridiron prestige of the big state school, regards co-ordination as his most valuable asset this season. "Last year all of us were green," he said, mopping his glistening pate while directing the Longhorns in practice. "This year my assistants know the system better, the boys know it better, the boys know us and we know the boys. Our machinery is better oiled." The deliberate speaking mentor refused to guess at how his proteges would wind up in the league standings or how many games they would win. "The boys will be in' there fighting," was all he said. Between barked orders at 44 huskies —a meagre crew in number compared to the 70 and 80-odd of yesteryears- Bible admitted he had an improved line, providing sophomores lived up to expectations, but lacked reserves in the backfield. "We need a quarterback badly," speaking of his greatest problem. Wallace Lawson, a 175-pound senior from Clebume, looks like the best of the crop. Then there's Bill Forney of Valparaiso, Ind., another likely senior and a bit heavier than Lawson. Also, there are a number of rabbit backs with lots of speed, any one of whom might show the spark of field generalship." Bible declared a backfield composed of Lawson; Charles Haas, 170-pound Corpus Christ! junior whose injured shoulder took him out of play in mid- season of last year; Beefus Bryan, 165- pourul Richmond junior, and "Bullet" Gray, 185-pound junior of Gorman, would equal any of the conference for speed and all-around durability. The veteran mentor indicated Bryan and Lawson would handle the hurling chores, which, he said, would be stressed. Haas and Lawson, both good booters, will divide the kicking. With Gray specializing in blocking, Haas' broken field running will be counted upon in sweeping end plays while Lawson, a bruising plunger, will take the line-smashing assignments. Some familiar faces among last year's forwards are wearing frowns due to the fine work of Sophomores Don Williams and Bill Kilman, Amarillo tackles weighing 220 and 190 pounds, respectively, and Mike Sweeney, 176-pound end candidate, also from the high school champion-producing plant. Otherwise, Stanley Neely, 180- pounder from Dallas whose leg injury will have to heal; Joe Roach of Decatur at 215 pounds; John Peter- fun, 180, of Amarillo, will be at the wing posts. Park Myers, 220-pound Austin junior, and Bernie Esunas. 205- pounder of Dallas, will be at the tackle slots; Jock Rhodes. 220, of Lexington and Charley Naiser, 220 of El Campo, will be back at the guards and Glenn Jackson, Corpus Christi, will park his 210 pounds in the center spot. An entirely .unknown quantity is Bob Moore, 165-pound sophumore backfield candidate from Houston, whose sensational basketball and baseball play last year made him a favorite despite the fact this is the first season he is donning a football uniform. swerved down an alley, peeled the paint off Arthur's house, missed a telephone pole and a tree by inches, tore down a trellis and settled in the •in.idjdle of a fine garden. ta(-2 win over £t. Petersburg, Fla., in the quarterfinals of the International Softball tournament. Hughes, besides playing a fine defensive game and hitting the game- winning blow, got a triple and single walked once, and scored two runs. Florida took the lead in the second inning when Turner beat out an infield hit, went to second on Hawks' infield out, and scored when Wilson singled to left field. Hughes tripled in the fourth, LeMay doubled, scoring Hughes, and Ed Baxley singled, scoring LeMay, to give the Shreveport team. This year finds the Tornado building again and Coaches Crowley and Cotton expects their work to pay dividends for two or three years to come since only four boys will finish off the first two teams at the end of the year. Despite this inexperienced team Coach Crowley hopes to send Hope home with the same feeling that Camden and El Dorado has had during his seven years of coaching at Haynesville. Little Rock team a 2-to-l lead. Florida tied the score in the sixth. McDonald singled to center and went to second on. a passed ball. At "this point Charles Ison, who-had pitched great ball, removed himself from • the game in favor of Ed (King Kong) Kelly. McDonald took third on a fielders choice and scored when Kelly threw wild to first on an infield grounder. McDonald, the losing pitcher, gave a great exhibition, striking out 22 batters. He was in trouble in only two innings. Ed Baxley, the lad who delivered the blow which won the state title for the Harvesters, contributed a triple, double and single to the attack. Hank Greengerg Swats 48th and 49th Homers DETROIT-(/P)-Hank Greenberg hit his 48th and 49th home runs of the season Sunday and moved within one of the record-breaking 1927 pace set by Babe Ruth, as the Tigers took a double-header from the Chicago White Sox, 10-1 and 5-3. Hanks too circuit clouts came in the first game, the first one on. Both were hit off Ted Lyons. On September 11, 1927, the year the Babe hit 60 for a major league record, Ruth THE SHADOW LENGTHENS had 50 to his credit. Chicago's only run in the first game was the deciding factor in the second Rudy York's 33rd homer of the year was the deciding facor in the second game. With the score tied atvthree- all in the fifth, York drove,one out of the lot and scored behind Greenberg. Beginning Soon In Hope ^**^^ ^RF ^MMBLiJIIw
