But as Billy buckled riow/ to work in his training club to beat but he believes Cubs have a chance to do it. A lot depends on five players out of the. service and whether big Bill Nicholson can shake off the slump which overtook him last season. The five players arc pitchers Hiram BHhorn, John Schmltz, Uuss Mcers, catcher Clyde McCnllough and outlieldcr Marvin Hlckct. He believes they will more than take up the slack left by Paul Derringer, and Roy Hughes, two key nitn in the 1045 pennant drive. ringer, a 16-gnmc winner, was e en his unconditional release while Hughes, who took over at short when Len Mcrullo's play became too erratic, was waived to the Phll- Ites.
