PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL <1, Many Problems Confront Cards , Dyer, New Manager, ; Faces Tough Task To Round Our Good Team By LEO H. I'ETISllSEN United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, April 4. (U.P,) — Eddie Dyer, in his first season as a major league m.a.nager, is on the spot, "and ho one is more conscious of It than Eddie himself. Nearly everyone except a couple of rival managers are picking his Cardinals to win Ihe National League pennant. Thai's all right with Eddie, but there is oiie thing he Is wondering about—Is he goln; lo have the players it takes to do It? Dyer himself doesn't know and that is why he thinks the 13 to 20 odds which make thc SI. Louis entry the favorite in thc wintci book arc absurd. So long as he doesn't know whether George (Whitcy) Kurowski will show to play third base; whether tin arms of pitchers John Beazley an< Ernie White will come around :m< Whether pitcher George Munsc and catcher Joe Gargiola are [;0 Ing to be released from Ihe aimed services before thc 1946 season is too well along, he's wondering how the odds-makers could come up With "such ridiculous figures.
