HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS lers May Train Indoors All Season By JUDSON BAILEY Bear Mountain, N. Y.. March 16 — 0") — if the Brooklyn Dodgers get off to a good start in the National league campagin next month it should settle the everlasting argument about whether or not a baseball club can train indoors satisfactorily. l"he Dodgers have their spring training headquarters here, but they held their first workout yesterday in the vast field house of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, five miles away, and it pleased everyone so much the Brooklyn club may not work oui doors here a single day. Till Leo Durocher led his noisy gang of 15 players into the Army's .baseball "cage" even the Dodgers had some misgivings about the advantages of inside training. Bear Mountain is a ski resort and it is gviing away no weather "secrets to say that pepole were skiing in the vicinity when the Dod- :gers checked in Sunday. !This meant that Durocher had no alternative for indoor work at the start, but he did have hopes of getting -outside soon. To this end the Dodgers, who still do things the daffy way, had big log fires burning Sunday and Monday on the infield of what was intended to be their practice diamond. The idea was to help drive the frost out of the ground so that it could be prepared for early use by the base- bailers. But the opinion after Brooklyn's first work out was that it wouldn't make much difference whether or not' the players got outside before they return to New York April 2. Working inside a big rope netting, the Dodgers pitched, bunted, batted and fielded in their first workout on a dry, smooth diamond with the temperature steam heated to about 70 degrees. The players perspired and loosened up probably as well as they would have in Havana or Florida. 'Short of an actual game the Dodgers think they can do everything else in the "cage." One fact that impressed observers was the uniformly good condition in which the players reported. This was particularly noticeable in Joe Medwick and Billy Herman, two veterans on whom much of the Dodgers' hopes rest. Both had spent the winter in Texas and limbered up before reporting. ^Herman, who batted only .256 last season, .could make Brooklyn's Infield situation a great deal brighter/if he is able to regain his form of earlier years. •*• - • Volunteer Army, 3,000,000 Strong, Serves Nation Through Red Cross Washington, D. C.—Five hundred lousand surgical dressings an our— No, that's not the production chedule of some gargantuan, high- mechanized manufacturing plant. It's what 2.000,000 women—part f the army of 3,000,000 trained ed Cross volunteer workers—are ccomplishing as their contribution > the war effort from the home ront. In cities, towns and hamlets up, own and across the country, women of all ages from every sta- on in life are working side by de in Red Cross production ooms. They know that in field resing stations andihospitals with- n the range of enemy guns,, Amer- can fighting men are depending pon them. The work of these women and le very existence of the American ed Cross Volunteer Special Serv- ces depends on public support of he 1943 War Fund appeal for S125,- 00,000. In Chicago recently a soldier, earing the Distinguished Serv- :e Cross walked into a production enter in a department store. hpughtfully he watched the Red ross women work. One of them oked up, asked him about him- elf. He told them he was 21, had een in the Army three years and ad been decorated twice after be- ng wounded in action in the South acific. Then he added: "I want to thank you women for upplying Red Cross surgical dress- ngs. If two of you worked all day ong you couldn't begin to make all le dressings I needed when I was n the hospital." This isn't all Red Cross volun- eers do, not by a long-shot. They Weather Big Problem to Baseball Team By OSCAR KAHAN Cairo, 111., March 16— UP) —Even before he brushed the sleep from his eyes, Manager Billy Southworth of the world champion Cardinals, now an avid meteorologist, poked his head out of the window to look at-the weather. 'More so than with some other clubs during the war - shortened spring training period, climatic conditions are going to be an all- important factor in Southworth's ability to whip his players into shape for the pennant race open ing April 12. If he gets a break in the weahter —and ne should at the southern most of all major league camps — Southworth will be off to a galloping start in quest for another cham pionship, because he has no rea player problems. But a string of bad days woulc be another story since the Card: have no adequate indoor trainini facilities. An old high school gym nasium, made of wood and will a low roof, has been placed at th team's disposal, but the barn - lik structure is scarcely large enoug to let all 32 members of the squa take part in a game of catch. For that reason, Billy is goin to work his boys out of doors when ever it's possible, and that' where Harrison J. Weaver's suppl of long underwear for players will come in handy as protection against colds. But weather or not, President Sam Breadon, who is here with the ball club, said, "we'll win the pennant, whether we train or not." Singing Sam had some solid support in Southworth's appraisal of the team's prospects. As Billy viewed it; the team's infield is intact with Johnny Hopp or Ray Sanders at first, Capt. Jimmy Brown at second, Martin Marion at short and Whitey Kurowski at third. Outfielder Stan Musial, Catcher Walker Cooper and Ken O'Dea are three other regulars to be counted on. The pitching staff includes Morton Cooper, Ernie White, Murray Dickson, Bill Beckmann, Harry In cities and towns throughout the U. S., 3,000,000 Red Cross volunteers are contributing to the Nation's war effort. Upper left, a Red Cross Motor Corps member adjusts the engine of her car.

SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON. JR. Wide World Sports Columnist New York, March 16 — (IP)— This one ought to start a few arguments on the dull days. . . After esting the third battalion at the Del Monte, Calif., Navy prc-flight school, Lieut. William Neufield, lead of the school's testing and measuring department, has concluded that boys from west of the Mississippi river are better physical specimens than the easterners. . . The Del Monte battalion (60 per cent Californians) had an average physical fitness index of 63, as compared to 66.7 for the first four battalions of the Chapel Hill, N. C., Pre-Flight school. The standard index is 60 — but don't ask us what that means.

March 10 —(/T)—The Indianapolis city council has instituted a new deal for stray dogs lit the city after hearing an appeal for the "four dollar dog" from Booth Ttirklngton, the Indian novelist. An ordinance passed last night provides for establishment of a clown town municipal pet shot at which slnVy dogs will be sold for $4. It ;Uso provides for employment of a part - time veterinarian to insure more humane treatment of animals at the city clog pound. The Tnrkingtim appeal was read to the council by the novelist's wife because of her husband's illness with a cold. Establishment of the downtown shop was urged because gasoline and tire rationing have reduced the sale of clogs tit the city pound located on the outskirts of the city. Tarkingoln wrote, in part: "Yes, it is a strange destiny the dog has accomplished for himself, selecting man out of all the universe, coming of his own free will and trustfully to be man's only friend. No other (animal) loves him, believes in him or unquestionably puts the- power of life and death for himself in man's hands. I find few things in life more touching than the fact that the dog does this gladly and meekly. The history of his race has left him no option except to put Ills fate In the hands of man, his dearly loved God. "What is man's response'.' A detail of the answer to that question i.s before this assembly tonight. Only a detail, yes, but a detail involving life and death, hor- ' ror and torture, for these poor, j helpljss little friends of man. Upon i the decision of this council rest 1 a difference lor many, many of them between Hell on earth and Heaven on earth." I) Anyway/ He's A Loyal Husband Charlotte, N.

A second has elapsed. Flashed by in a hurry, didn't it? The new mile marvel. Frank Dixon, would like to lose that second just as quick Saturday night in the Chicago relays. It might mean tlje fastest mile of tha season. Winner of such miles as the National A. A. U., Hunter and Columbian, the New York University freshman will try for his fourth major title in the Bunkers. A crowd of some 15.000, one of the largest of the track season, i.s expected to watch the 20 - year- old Negro again meet the challenges of Eurl Mitchell of Indiana, Wanamakcr winner, and G i 1 Dodds, Boston divinity student, New York A. C. Champion. Both are a little tired of looking at Dixon's back. Mitchell was second to him in the Boston A. A. Hunter; Dodds breathed down his spine in both the National A. A. U. and last Saturday's Columbian in the Knights of Columbus meet. Twice Dixon has clipped 4:09.6, but he must cut more than a second off that time to beat Mitchell's 4:08.6, best mile of the season.
