There is an interesting story ;iiuid Hoyt's effectiveness this 'rason. H goes back a year ago last May. As a miicfcr of fact it »ocs back a year before that, when he met n very attractive young woman aboard a train as he was icportlns to .the Brooklyn train- In;; camp in Florida. Her name ".is Ellen Bin-bank. She v, cw York society girl. They were man-led on May 12 1C 13. Hoyl, who, while hc played with Boston, New York, Detioit .inrt Philadelphia in the Amen- t-ui League, hud been known as a playboy, became a devoted husband. He became a conscientious tiam- si In 1833 and aga'ln this ^ear' he was the fn^t of thc Pilate pitchers to reacli the pink st.igt m. training ^amp conditioning. Both years he maintained that condition by working hard In practice. Throughout the current season, he has shagged flics in the outfit;!;! and run himself ragged in Infield practice. He has taken the S S£ of- care of himself. Hoyl learned a new pitch. Heinle Meine taught him to throw the slider ball, a piteli on the nature of a curve that slWps off opposing bats. Hoyl now uses It more effectively • than McliiD.. - ; : Hoyl wauls to be a college baseball conch when lie finishes his big league rim. At first his ambition was to be a big league manager, but he realized that he might never get an appointment due to his past playboy reputation. The Outside .

Word comes from our Siiawnce operative that the Shawnce Indians lire already pointing for the game with the Blytheville Chicks a week from Friday. - Coach Johnnie Burnett, makes no secret of ihc fact Uiof his boys, who play .Trumaiin Friday, are eating, sleeping and dre.imlng only with thc li«a of beating Hlythevilie in mind. - Burnett has given his grasscut- tehs Blyihci'ille plays to s hoat at his varsity performers to see just what his firsl string can do with Hie style of offense employed by Laslie's crew. Thc Indians are confident they will take the Chickasaws into camp, remembering that score of 13 to 12 last year when many Blytheville fans admitted the I Chicks were lucky to sneak over 'a win. Frlility Is Ahead There cnn be no painting for Hie pawnee game on thc part of the Ohlcks. The locals have a big bat- in fact, if either team could te established, on its record, as a favorite for Friday night, n would probably hs the Forrest city eleven. While Forrest City was rather soundly trounced • by Little Hock. the eastern Arkansas squad looked good even, In defeat. Tlie writer believes • the Chicks are due for a victory In what is really their first hard game of the season, what 'Is more, a triumph by three touc'ndowns or more would make the rest of the state sit up and take notice of the Blytheville team. I bellave they can do it. 'I'll* Bijf, Bad Grizzly The big, bad Grizzly all but devoured Pine Bluff's Zebra eleven last week. Fort smllh rcored a big moral victory in holding the Zebras t» a tie coming, as the draw did ,in the wake of an announcement from the Zebras' home camp that they feared neither loe nor weather and were all set to walk away with the stale championship. . Pine niufl will do well to look out for Die. Grizzly in the future Instead of the wolf. Big Boy Blahchard, Blythl>vlile light heavy, will meet rugged Soldier Colemaii In the feature match, eight rounds or less, on tonight's card at Dyess colony. ; Blanchard has been In and out of the ring with average success for a number of yeaiy and boasts a /air punch. Coleman Is reputed to be a rough, tough boy with considerable experience. •; James Roberts, Ihe Blytheville whirlwind, takes on Arnold Clayton In a' four rounder. Clayton also halls from Blytheville. In a three round match Gus Uiusford will meet Nolen Lambert, the fast stepping lightweight. Another match will rouiid out the enow, opening at B o'clock. No admission is charged. It looks this morning l)ke the writer must have been all alone In picking the Detroit Tigers to cop Ihe world series. Mrs. Dean's boys (and tile Cardinals) 1 really (cok the Tigers and no mistake. From here 11 appears that even Clyde Beatty could learn something about Tiger tnmln? from Dtev and Daffy... The only consolation this column has is .that Mr. Harry Grayson, NBA Service sports editor, tried to cover too much territory when he predicted a Card triumph in six gamc5j'<'4o he likewise made a partial m*JS.
