LOUIS (UP)—Take it for what It's worth, but supporters of the St. Louis Cardinals predict (he 193fi race for National League balling honors will be a (Dree-way contest between Joe (the Duck) Medwlek, Johnny Mize and Hookic Knos Slaughter, leading sluggers o fthe Gas House Gang. Medwick is a cinch lo repeat his performance of lust year, St. Louis fans say. He ran up a balling average of .314 to lead the league. and observers predict tiiat unless he breaks an arm or leg in mid- season he will even surpass last year's feat If for no olher reason than lhat he will have strenuous competition - from Ills lira team «idles. / Mizp Vonnida'ble Itivul Mize, • big first baseman, Is expected to pfovlde most of The Duck's competition. Hie 25-year- old Georgian was rnnner-iip in balling in Hie senior circuit lost year in his second seasoii with the Cardinals. Observers say that if he continues lo show the same progress demonstrated In the past two years he may even pass Medwlck. Mize was the Nations! League's outstanding rookie In lB3fi when' he broke inlo the Cardinal lineup j by ousting Rip Collins from first- base.

In fuel, if Tlie Duck had not chalked lip his best season lo date, Mize would have been the hitting sensation of the league. Not only was lie second lo Medwick in batting, but he was the next-best all-around slugger In the loop. Hit 25 Home Rims Few second yenr plnyers have exalted Mize's record.
