*st HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thuridoy, Aprjl 8, 1943 r *? - l ' I •• engel Has ifchers but Needs Fielders By JUDSON BAILEY 1 WaJlingford, Conn., April 8 —</P) ~ Pitching may be 75 per cent of • 'baseball club, as has been contended for years, but the Boston Braves seem sure to prove this seat»n that a team also needs an infield and an outfield to amount to anything. ' Etfervcscent old Casey Stengel has a good mound corps in camp here, possibly a collection that could make the first division with reasonable cooperation. Jim Tobin and Alva Javcry. two eminently capable righthanders arc back from last year. Charley (Red) Barrett, Nate Andrews and George Jeff coat are up from the minors with every indication they are ready for a good showing. In addition Lefty Vernon Gomez, the exile from the New York Yankees, and big Manuel Salvo are a couple of IT men who might turn in remarkable performances — or might not Altogether Stengel has nine pitchers on his roster and a couple of others belonging to the Hartford farm are in camp, so the Braves have no worries whatsoever about their hurling. The catching, too, seems satisfactory even allowing for the fact that big Ernie Lombard!, the National League batting champion, probably will hot be back. He has not signed and he wrote President Bob Quinn that he wated to remain in a defense plant. There has been a report from his California • home that he has changed his mind and wants to play ball — ior some other club. , If details can be worked out he likely will turn up with the New York Giants or the Phillis lay- Ing the backsteeping work to Phil Masi and Clyd Cluttz. They can handle the work, but can't match Iximbardi's .330 hitting average. The infield has Johnny McCar- thj, one of the Giants and last year at Indianapolis in the Ameri«an Association, on first base: "Eddie Joot, last of the Cincinnati .Reds on second: Billy Witlenann, up from Louisville at shortstop; and the veteran Tony Cuccinello sharing third base with Joe Burns, a rookie who played at Oklahoma City in 1941 but stayed out of organized ball last year. The outfield has Tommy Holmes, Chester Ross and Rookie Charlie "Workman up from Nashville, with .nobody in reserve except three youngsters who are owned by the Hartford club SPORTS ROUNDUP &y HUGH FULLERTON, JR. Wide World Sports Columnist New York, April 8 — <£>) —Perhaps it's too early in the season to be bringing up the subject, but there may be enough college sports activity, especially baseball, next summer to make up for the shortened spring schedules... Asa Bush- noil, who keeps his fingers in a whole wagonload of college pic, points out that a lot more eastern schools will be having summer session this year and he figures that most of them will try to organize teams with the same sort of pickup schedules that some operated succesfully last summer. The rc- ult. natitrally. will bd intercollegiate games within whatever limits transportation and the different starting dates of the summer sessions make necessary.

Exhibition Ball Games Missed by Cardinals By OSCAR KAHAN Cairo, 111., April 8 — I/I')— The world champion St. Louis Cardnlnls wound up their spring training today with indications the club has seriously missed the long string of 25 or 30 exhibition game played down south in previous years. Inlra-sqaad contests while valuable as a break in training routine, failed to produce toughening pressure of former competition with major league teams in the good old days in Florida. Manager Billy Southworth was hopeful, however, that a seven- game spring series with the Browns in St. Louis, starting Saturday, would put the final edge on the Cardinals' condition for the pennant race. As it is the team.'s pitchers arc so far ahead of the hitters that Soulhworth called off two intra- squad games here to concentrate on intensive batting practice. The Cardinals' attack at best may be light. It was not very devastating last year and two heavy hitters, Enos Slaughter and Terry Moore, now arc in military service. Lack of boom-boom boys showed up early in the training period. Cairo's playing field is spacious, and Soulhworth believes the 1943 ball is dead, but nevertheless none of the players was able to belt a drive over the fence until Stan Musial finally did it twice in a row last week. The 1942 Cardinals hit only sixty home runs, sixth in National League, although they were first in both triples and doubles, chiefly through their fleet-footed ability to stretch their hits. The energetic manager still had several replacement problems, and a few minor injuries to conte with, but all in all the Cardinals appeared in excellent shape for a repeat performance as the league champions.

Happenings in Major Ball Camps takeluirst, N. J. — The New York Giants seem to have cleared up two problems that troubled them during the early part of the training season — whether Carl Hubbcll's left arm would be in good shapo for the season and the team's failure to hit in intra-camp games.
