FLEMING & LOIS EBY COPYRIGHT, 1943, NEA SERVICE, INC. Managers of the Major Leagues Are Doubtful By HAROLD CLAAS9EN New York, April 19 (/p)— If all the indecision expressed by the major league managers on the eve of the second baseball campaign of the present war era were placed end to end it would bo as evasive as an Axis communique. The. curtailed training offered by tho northern camps, playing out the schedule that opens tomorrow with a new type of ball and the .war's manpower demands — both of the immediate past and for the coming five months — have combined to make the managers even more reticent than usual. Only Lou Boudroau, 25year-old manager-shortstop of the Clove- land Indians, gave an entirely optimistic answer as the Associated Press made its annual pre-season poll of the 16 paters of diamond strategy. "I am very much convinced that the Indians are the team to beat in the American League pennant race," said tho youthful chieftain who is starting his second year as boss of the Clevelands. "My club will be in their all season and definitely is one that will have to be beat." Billy Southworth, who guided the St. Louis Cardinals 1o theii world title .last fall, said he was well satisfied with the replacement? for Terry Moore, Eno Slaughter and. Johnny Beazley — all stars of the 1942 team but now wearing •Uncle Sam's uniforms. "You might go to bed one rtigh with your club in first place am wake up in the morning with it in the army. I don't see how any team can make a runaway of the pennant races. Joe McCarthy whose rebuilt New York Yankees didn't defeat a single major league foe this spring but still are favored for their seventh flag in eight years, replied that it is "too risky to make predictions. I can't tell how the Yanks will fare. Nobody can." "I'm not making a prediction," chimed in Leo Durocher of the Brooklyn Dodgers, "but I will say that I am satisfied with my team and that it is ready." Bill McKechnie of the Cincinnati Reds was even more silent than ustomary. "I haven't seen another National League club all spring and vith conditions as unsettled as they re. it would be foolish to pick the vinner," Answering a question by asking aie was Jimmy Wilson's reply told hat his Chicago Cubs had some support for the National League crown, Wilon came back with "I von't predict, but a guy would be crazy not to be shooting for first }lace, wouldn't he?" Frankie Frisch, turbulent mentor jf the Pittsburgh Pirates, admits e was eyeing the first division 'but in a war year one doesn't viiow what to expect. I think the najbrs will finish the season and Jraves. Mel Ott of the New York Giants and Buck Harris, now of lie Philadelphia Phillies, promised o be troublesome all season and itengcl saw no reason why his out- it shouldn't finish above seventh >lace. Memories of'what happened dur- ng the seasons of World War tem- jcred Connie Mack's response. The eteran boss of the Philadelphia /Uhlctic. predicted "there may be lot of surprises before the season is over. Someone may even come up with ,n duplicate of the 3oston Braves of 1914 who climbed rom last place in July to first in October. But I still think the Yanks jre the team to beat although the Athletics will do all right." The American League's two new rnanagers, Ossie Bluege of the Washington Senators and Steve O'Neill of the Detroit Tigers, both were confident. Bluege asserted his club was the most improved of any in the circuit and was definitely of first division calibre while O'Neill warned that if "First Baseman Rudy York h'as a big car — and it looks like be may — then, watch out for the Tigers." That warning also was sent out by Luke Sewell of the St. Louis Browns, who declared "it is impossible for anyone to say how the race will come out but I do know that the Browns arc; not going to be shoved around," The Boston Red Sox, whose contributions to the armed services includes an entire outfild and one of the game's belter shortstops, remained optimistic, Manager Joe Cronin observing that "since all clubs have been hit. hard, I look for a real good race."

"Malaria!" dismayed. he echoed Today in Congress By The Associated P""ess Senate Routine busines. Assistant Secretary of State Dean Acheson explains plans for international food conference to foreign relation and agriculture committees. House Continues debate on agriculture department supply bill. Even before Barry's short laugh of self-disgust ended, his knees buckled under him. Jose caught him and helped him to a seat against the trunk of a giant tamarack. "S'&y here," he commanded. "I will find you bed." Jose strode off, to return soon with his arms piled with fragrant pine needles. On the floor of a shallow cave in the rock ledge by the waterfall he spread them, then came back for Barry. Barry was pulling a box from his coat pocket. He handed it to Jo^e with trembling hands. "Good thing—they weren't left—in saddle bags," he grinned unsteadily. Jose opened the box to frown in perplexity at the unfamiliar tablets. "But these are not quinine," he objected. "Atabrine," Barry told him with effort. "Give them to me . . . instructions ... on box." Jose shook his head. "You should have quinine," he mourned. Apprehension rang warningly through Barry's blurring senses. It would be typical of a jungle man like Jose to throw away the medicine because it was different. He realized it would soon be too late to do anything about it. Already his . mind was wandering under the heat of his fever. He forced himself to concentrate on the problem. He tried to fix his glazing eyes on the powerful man kneeling beside him. "Jose!" "Si, senor." "Those tablets. They are better than quinine. Do you hear me?" "Si." But the man's voice was still mournful and unbelieving. "Do you promise—on your word of honor—to give me the tablets •—two each hour?" For a long minute Jose didn't answer. Then, just as Barry's whirling senses told him he had failed, he heard the man's mumbled, "Si, senor." Relieved, he collapsed against Jose's arm. CLOWLY, he floated back Jo con-. sciousness, began . to /'realize some of his hallucinations were facts. The sound of cascading water continued after he .opened his eyes. And another fainter sound —wind sighing through trees. He felt soothed, and peaceful, though he could see almost nothing in the dim light about him. He raised himself on an elbow and his head struck against the top of the cave. Dimly he recalled the trip-r—Jose. He crawled from the cave and got to his feet. His head whirled and he leaned against the rock ledge for support, while he looked about him. It was a dazzling morning. Sun sparkled on the cascading water at the cliff's edge, and lay molten over the rocky ledges and. dark trees of the mountainside. Evidences of Jose's vigilance were all about. Tamarack branches had been laid over the entrance to the cave. The remains of a fire still smoldered on the rock Roughly hewn wooden ledge, cups dried in the sun. As he watched, the huge figur,e of Jose, himself, strode out of the forest of pines, game slung over his shoulder. At sight of Barry, he wayed an arm and hurried to join him. "You feel better!" he smiled warmly. "Thanks to you, Jose," Barry muttered, returning the smile, "You gave me the medicine;, eh?" Jose pulled the small box from his pocket and showed Barry it was almost empty. "It is good medicine like you say,". ,he acknowledged. "Each two .'lipurs I make you take like you say. So I cannot go back to plantation and tell where we are." "How long have we been here?" Barry demanded. The Mexican counted on his stubby fingers. "Five days," he said. Barry moaned. "How have you lived all that time?" Jose swung the animals he had killed from his shoulder. T. wo red squirrels! "Very good," ' 'hie said simply. He took a folding tin cup from his pocket and opened it proudly. "I make broth for you in this," he added. As Jose gathered brush for a fire, Barry asked, "What about the Quiches? Did. they follow us?" Jose knelt to blow on the small flame. "They did not find us," he said. "We are very fortunate." When the flame swept through the twigs, he took the two squirrels and went to kneel at the water's edge with a murderous looking hunting knife. "I'll have to go back," Barry worried aloud. "Ypu will.go with me, won't you, Jose? I have to prove to that chief I was framed. I've got to get those mines!" * * * J OSE listened impassively as he skinned and cleaned the squirrels. He cut a small chunk of meat and dropped it into the water-filled cup. "We eat," he said stolidly. "Then we try to make plantation before you feel sick again. You need more good medicine before you go back anywhere." Barry's head was beginning to ache again. His body felt stiff and weak, Jose gave him the last two atabrine tablets, and later a cup of the steaming broth. Then he stretched out on the soft, fragrant bed of pine needles. Barry marveled at the patience and gentleness of the big Mexican. The man had saved his life all right. He was lucky to have had such a guide. If he had only been as lucky with the Quiches, he thought bitterly. * * * HPHROUGH half closed eyes he •*• watched the Mexican as he made neat rolls of their blankets, led the mules up from the thicket where they had been tied to graze, took brushes and stroked their gray coats until they shono in the sunlight. Barry dozed off then and must have slept for several hours. When he awakened the sun was low and the pine trees were casting long shadows up the slope. Jose was sitting by the campfire fixing some more broth. Barry felt cool now and refreshed. Jose turned as he heard his voice. "I feel much better, Jose," he said. "Maybe tonight we could go back to the Quiche country." Jose looked grim and shook his head. "No, senor, that would be folly." "But I must clear myself with them!" "This is not the time," Jose said quietly. "You feel better now because of the medicine you have taken. Later when that wears off you might feel worse again. This fever is very bad stuff. We can not take chances of your getting sick again out here." "But you said tonight we could travel again!" "Si, senor, we travel, but not to the Quiches. We go back to the plantation where you can rest from your sickness." Barry felt a tide of keen disappointment surge through him as he thought of delaying his business with the Quiches. "You rest now until the moon comes out," Jose said. "Then I give you more broth and we will draw well.'

Atlanta, April 19 (fC).— Getting a line on Southern Association baseball players these days is like trying to keep up with a flock of hum- ning birds — they come and go. Birmingham added a pitcher to ts well-padded roster with acquis- -ion of Bob Ferguson, curve-ball specialist with Montgomery's Southeastern League - team last year. Latest to check in at the Little Rock camp was Second Baseman Myer Chozen. The former Southeastern League infielder, overdue and overweight, joined the Pebs Sunday. Myer explained that he picked up excess poundage working in a California war.plant. Other arrivals expected today include First Backer Bill McGhee and Outfielder Irving Levy, which should give Manager Buck Fausett sufficient help to make a showing against the Stuttgart, Ark., Army Fliers in an exhibition slated Tuesday. V The Nashville roster dropped to 16 today after the outright release of Howard Anderson, a pitcher, who will report for army induction. Knoxville's infield prospects were denied wiith word tihat Walter Lance, youthful first baseman, had received orders to report for induction. A new infielder, Al Smith, climbed into an Atlanta uniform yesterday adding support to. the Crackers' untried defense. Smith was purchased from Toronto of the International League. 40 .
