Brown mouth. Tucker has spent six years ir Ihe minors and Ihis is his Ihird straight tryoul in the White Sox spring training camp. Now it looks us if he will stay, getting his chance after departure of 24 Sox players to the armed forces and leaving Ihe oulfield with only one regular, Wally Moses. So good is this 25-year-old Texan that Manager Jjmmy Dykes does not even emphasize the word "if" in choosing him as center fielder. It look a war and persistent, efforts uy Tucker to bring about the situation. Tucker, whose bat cul .313 for Fort Worth last year, is married and has a year old daughter. Tucker says: "I enrolled in a baseball school al Hoi Springs (Ark.) when I was 17, was always regarded loo small, so I thought a knowledge of fundamentals would offsel lack of pounds. I know I can hit speedy stuff. Thai's all they throw in the Texas league. But Ihe major league pilchers may be a problem.

She shifted her lovely, sultry eyes back to Captain Carr. "You must understand that I think of you constantly," Jimmy was saying, and his voice had a desperate tone. "Lorry, you and I_ w hy, good grief, Lorry girl, we're like that!" He held two fingers up, side by side. Loraine said nothing. Food on the table went untouched, but she opened her bag for a cigaret. Jim Carr, who didn't smoke but who usually held a match for her, apparently didn't see the cigaret at all now. He was that intent. "Little girl, I'm as serious about this as possible. I won't have you or anybody else imply that I two- time you! I'm not that kind of a heel. Don't you understand?" Lorry squirted smoke out the side. The motion screwed up her pretty lips unprettily, and her eyes were narrowed, watching his. "You believe me, don't you, Lorry girl?" Jim begged, low tone, e— we had everything understood. Didn't we? ... Didn't we? . . ." She finally deigned to speak. "What about this Friday person?" Jimmy was struggling harder than ever. "I -won't belittle Pat. Not in the slightest. Matter of fact, she's swell, but—well, look, Lorry, 1—" "Then you still want to marry me." "Lorry! Of course!" "All right. Will you? And if so—when?" "H-Here?" She nodded. "There's a cute outdoor chapel right here at the Phoenix Sky Harbor. Where a great many movie stars are married after flying over from Hollywood. A Spanish arch, under palm trees and a climbing rose. Okay, Jimmee?" This had become business-like now. A strictly business contract, arranged by the party of the first part while the second party was willing. "Absolutely!" said Jimmy. "Absolutely, Loraine!" * * * "DAT'S breakdown of sobbing passed in a very few minutes. She wiped her eyes on a huge kerchief, gave it back to its owner and stammered, "T-thanks, Ed. You are so kind." "Do you good, crying a little," said he. "AU right now?" "All right. Only I'm ashamed." "Forget that part. Nobody saw you. Not even me," "Thanks, Ed." "You wanta eat anything else?

"We really can't stop and visit just now, children," Loraine went on, triumphantly. "So much to do, you know. But—you'll both be there? Tomorrow at noon, right here at Sky Harbor, at that darling little marriage shrine! We'll want Mr. Bryan and Miss Friday by all means, won't we, Jimmy dear?" "Yep," said Jimmy, lips still tight. "Sure." Ed tried to catch his eye, but Jimmy looked past him. Then Loraine led her man away. They really made a fine-looking couple going down the terrace here; the distinguished young Army aviator and soaring expert, and the statuesque, blond girl. When they were out of sight, Ed exhaled again. He turned to Pat Friday. "I—I better get back to work," she said, nervously. He took her to Major Hale's of- Cape Girardeau, Mo. — This northern training, Missouri version, is all right, says Manager Luke Sewell of the St. Louis Browns.

Jimmy and Loraine v.-ere coming out on the terrace, toward them. "It's all right," Ed comforted. "Just don't try to talk for a litlle while." Loraine, surprisingly to Ed, had all her old verve and sparkle back. She strode toward the canvas swing like a conqueror, like an imperious dress model on a stage, like a woman of absolute purpose and poise. Jim Carr's face was set. "Well," Ed Bryan began, .rising, "Well, uh—it's not 1 o'clock yet, but maybe we—" "Sit down! Do sit down!" Loraine directed them, brightly "There may be something you two people want to know!" "Yes'm," Ed agreed, nervously Neither Jimmy nor Pat spoke But Loraine now said, "You're both going to be a little surprised I'm sure. But the truth is, the fice without another word. People were waiting to see her. Ed went on away, a whipped, angry man. Pat did not go at once to the desk she had borrowed. Rather hastily she went on through to a small anteroom. She just .had to have a moment alone! She didn't cry any more. Not low. Control had to be forced at any cost, because of the afternoon's task before her. . . . But 'or an ageless minute or so she did think. The old hope within her of course lay completely dead. She tamped her cigaret out and said, "Tomorrow at noon. Right here." romantic old southwest has gotten jinto our bones, in a measure Jimijiy's and mine." "Ma'amV" Ed looked at her. She had tried Everything! Kindly everything. Ed Bryan lad "sought to help her; it just simply hadn't worked. She had ,i-ied slaving for Jimmy. She had .ried being honest, sweet girlish. She had tried—once back in Elmira—being sophislicaled, and that had been terrible. Today, she had tried a cooing, purring technique which Loraine herself used EO effectively on Jimmy Carr. Nothing had worked. Pat whispered a quick little prayer. Jimmy! God. Always!" Then she hastened back to her assigned job.
