Stengel got rid of eight of his youngsters yesterday, including Elston Holard, first Negro ever to own a Yankee uniform. TJiey were sent to the minors, leaving the club with 31 players on the roster.

TAMPA, F5a. «V — The big league ball clubs are'so. depressed by the skimpy crowds they are leaving- behind them in Florida that some of them may cut their exhibition schedule within the state virtually in half next spring. They might start their training later too. . The cluster of eight teams based within 50 miles of this tor have not, in the words of one baseball officials, "drawn files." Only the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees, playing their home games in the tourist city ol St. Petersburg, drew a few big gates on this coast, and then only OOzarks' second proposal 1 alo is aimed at what Koon describes as discrimination. It would eliminate altogether a limit on the tota' amount of money a member school may pay athletes to work for the school. There's no limit on the money thaf may be paid other students for such work, but only $3,600 a year may go to athletes.

Gentry Rules Old Laws Impossible LITTLE ROCK U, — Atty. Gen. Tom Gentry ruled yesterday that it would be "an utter impossibility" to use 60 and 80-year-old laws as a guide for state purchasing of printing and stationery supplies.
