Bobcat Backfield Stars Who Will Prance Against Smackover Friday Night in Quest of Third Straight Victory for Hope Defeat by Chicago "Haunts Traynor Pittsburgh Manager One of Baseball's Hardest Losers Is Charles Baker .Jimmy Daniels Tommy Samuels NEW YORK—(A 1 )—Tintype of Harold (Pie) Traynor, the figety man on baseball's powder keg: Never was there a sweeter man in big top baseball. Never was there a manager quite as worried, nervous and highstrung. Not quite 40, this tall, thin man who leads the pennant contending Pittsburgh Pirates takes defeat harder than the most haunted coach in college football. Win or lose, the Pirate management has told him he is set for 1939 but so hard would he take defeat now that victory is so close that it's almost even money he would resign. Hard Loser Rival ball players and managers "feel" for Traynor. You don't have to look at the score board at Forbes Field, home field of the Pirates, to fee if Pie's boys are losing. Just look at him. He always stands on the Pirate dugout steps picking up and throwing stones. The harder he throws them, the worse the score. The day the New York Giants licked his Pirates, 18-2, on the first Eastern invasion of the campaign, Traynor returned to his hotel but he clidn"t sleep He walked the floor until 7 a. m. Another day, when the Giants whippec the Pirates for a double-header, the glum Pie went home with his chin on his chest. "Oh, don't take it so hard, honey,' encouraged Mrs. Traynor. "You stil have jme." "Yes," muttered Pie, 'and I would have traded you today for just one good base hit." Sufi Will) Men Gossip about the circuit says Traynor is too soft with his men. Possibly so, but as a graduate of the star ranks he sees no need of pl&ying truant officer and detective. There have been occasions when he has cracked down but the result left him miserable. For a time, perhaps, his men did take advantage of him, but no more. Reports he will be fired if the Pirates lose the pennant to the Chicago Cubs seem erroneous. Early in the season when the Pirates lost their lead and seemed headed toward second division, President Bill Benswanger grabbed him by the lapels and shouted: "Win or lose we're with you u hundred per cent!" Since then, the Pirates have been winning. Married Seven Years Traynor has been married almost seven yetrs. There are no children. He always dresses in blue or brown. Despite his waitings and nervousness, he's always extremely polite. He's a walking example of the theory that a i.oft answer turneth away wrath. How good a ball player he was in his heyday is well known history. He was a great hitter, a greater fielder. Ask Col. Will Terry of the Giants because he knows. The old press box paying when "Pie" played was: "Terry doubled down the left field line and was tossed out by Traynor." State Teachers to Fly torrid Game Will Take Plane From Fort Worth to El Paso, Texas CONWAY, Ark. — (/I 1 ) — Arkansas State Teachers will travel to Las -ruccs by air for their Friday night ;rid clash with New Mexico State Col- ege. The Pedagogues will go to Fort Worth by rail Wednesday night, make the jump to El Paso by plane and complete the trip to Las Crucus by bus. The same facilities will be used for the return trip Saturday night. The team will be the first in Arkansas to fly to the scene of a grid encounter. Coach Warren Woodson said the flight would save two days travel and result in the Teachers being away from Conway only three days. Woodson will take 24 players on the trip. New Mexico scored a 27-7 triumph over Montana State last week and is expected to extend fully the Arkansas champions.

The Texas Exporters, with Lynwood (Schoolboy) Rowe, scheduled to start pitching, are due to reach Atlanta Wednesday morning. Atlanta's pennant winners, victors over the Southern Association's all- star team and winners in the Shaughnessy play-off scries, probably will rely upon the left arm of "Silent" Tom Slinkel in starting their third Dixie Series (8 p. m.

Plans were discussed for an .A-l softball field next season which will include additional lights and the hiring of an expert to come here and put the lighting equipment in the proper place. Dizzy Dean Hero of Cub's Victory Hurls Chicago to Within Half-Game of Bucs in Thrilling Battle < CmCAGO-WVOl 1 Dffezy (Dean pitched his great heart out and the Chicago Cubs smack dab into .the thick of the National League pennant battle Tuesday. With little else on the ball but its cover, Dean hurled the Cubs to a thrill-packed, 2 to 1 victory .ovef'ihe league leading Pittsburg Pirates for a triumph which left the Cubs trailing the Bucs by only half a game, 'With two more games between the clubs scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. Diz wasn't in there at the finish. Bill Lee, taking the mound with two out in the ninth, retired the final Pittsburg batsman as Diz trudged slowly to the showers. But it "was Dean's victory all the way, a victory he called "the greatest of my life" and one which won him the acclaim of the 42,238 hysterical fans who jammed Wrigley Field. Dean allowed the Pirate sluggers just seven hits, their only run coming with Dean in the club house. In the ninth inning, Woody Jensen seabed on Lee's wild pitch, with the game ending a second ater as Lee facedjlAl Todd for the final out. '*' Dea allowed two hits in the fjrst inning and one in the second, then blanked the Bucs until the sixth, when they picked up another safety. They nicked him for two hits in jthe eighth and another in the ninth Before Lee took over. , In the ninth, Arkey Vaughan Ivas hit by a pitched ball. After Suhr had popped out, Jensen pinch-hit ;for Young and forced Vspghan at second Dean to Jurges. Handley doubled Jensen to third and Lee replaced Dean A wild pitch sent Jensen home ^nd with the tying run on third, Lee. fanned Todd to end the battle. | The victory lost the Cubs the serv« ices of Outfielder Augie Galan, pbs- sibly for the remainder of their five game schedule. Sliding into second in the second inning, Galan twisted his left knee so badly he had to.be carried from the field. f Bamboo forms a better windbreak in regions of violent storms than any other kind of plant.
