April 9—</P> —The Boston Red Sox arrive here today to play a two-same scries with their Birmingham Southern Association farmhands, now under the direction of ex-sicker Mike Higgins. And evidently manager Joe McCarthy is eager to see Ted Williams and his other sluggers fatten tip their batting averages for he plans to use all of his able-bodied regulars with the capable lefty Mel Parnell on the mound. ATLANTA, Ga., April 9—OT)— Gil Hodges is back on first base lor the Brooklyn Dodgers today following an injury to Rookie Chuck Connors. Connors, who took over the ha- Thursday, was struck on the mouth with a thrown ball in EL pre-gamc practice by Catcher Bruce Edwards, who was manning third base. Faint through loss of blood. Connors had to be helped olf the. field. Five stitches were required to close his badly gashed lip. The curbstone legal expert asks the question and then says solemnly: "A thing like that must have been settled in the courts long ago. That's what courts are for." But lias it? The answer is: "Maybe yes. maybe no." No clearcut precedent over has oeen set on the reserve clause because no case based on it ever has been decided by the U. S. Supreme Courl. The clause means Hint a baseball player i.s virtually the private property of the club that first signs him. Baseball says it cannot operate without it. Danny CSardella. an ex-New York Giant, was banned for five years for playing in the Mexican League in 19-16 although he had not been signed by the Giants for that year. Now he wants 5300.000 damages for losing out ou his means of earning a living. His suit is aimed at the reserve clause. His Attorney, Frederic A. John- soj). long has been a student of base- | ball law. Ten years ago he published ; T*» T— I 'i.L an article in Ihe United States Law! • O I OM^IC With Review covering the games famous ] ca^es. Baseball Wins Both Two stand out. Baseball management won both fhe case against the famous star, Napoleon Lajoie. who left the National reserve clause was "part of the consideration for the large salary" paid to Lajoie. I.njoic went right on pluylng, cx- eotu in Philadelphia v'here the injunction has been obtained, but f\ battle had been won for the reserve clause. 'Hie next big test came when the Fedora 1 League challenged both the American and National League In 1314-IS by signing their stars. In 1922. Ihe Supreme Court of the United Stales ruled in favor of organized baseball In Ihe damage suit brought by the Baltimore club ot the Federal League. Baseball said the court, was not Interstate business, was not a commodity, and did not violate the anti-trust laws. Thus Indirectly the rc.-,c:ve cia;:r,c- was saved. There Ihe reserve .clause has stood until Danny Gnrdella opened fire. State College Track Season Is Launched By the Associated Frew Arkansas' 194!1 colleso track and field season got Into full swing today. The university's Hazorbacks. who have placed third with only a skeleton team in two meets, had their full team ready for a meet with the Univeisity of Oklahoma at Fayetteville. But the Sooners were favored to win. ' Tour slate teams were to vie at Camden In a meet which may shed some light on the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference meet to be held later this spring.

M. Ward who said he was going; to play for the Players' League set up by the Baseball Brotherhood in protest against the reserve clause.
