Stanky, apologizing to newsmen for an outburst during yesterday's St. Louis Cardinals-Chicago Cubs game, said he was on edge after leveling a fine against Pitcher Harry Brecheen. Newsmen yesterday had asked the field announcer to query the Cardinal manager on the reason for Stan Musial's removal late in the game. Stanky reportedly told the scribes to go fly a kite in unprintable language. After the game, which the Cards lost, 7-2, it was learned Musial bad injured his knee in a fifth-inning fall in the outfield. He is expected to be back in the lineup tomorrow. Stanky apologized last night for his comments, blaming it on his "bad disposition and temper." He disclosed that he was "on edge" after meting out his first fine as Card manager. He said he had leveled "an automatic $50 fine" against Brecheen [or allowing Cub Bob Rama/./.olti to bunt on a pitch-out in the third inning.
