Harris had advised son; of the baseball writers not to pic i)ie Detroit team, which Buck managed last year. "Cochrane will rind outiillaboi lliat club as lie goes along." wa Bucky's word. "They fell down o me when I thought Uiey couidn miss second or third place. An it's the same team." « m » It is Ihe same team, with two or three important changes, us Ihc new manager pointed out. "We've got Goslin to add punch," said Mickey, referring to the trade which sent Johnny Stone to Washington. "We're going 10 have bel- ter pitching than lincky had, I'm going to do most of the catching —caught 130 games last year. "Feilows like Grcenbers; ai. first, Hogell at. bhorl, and Fox and Vi'al- kor in the outfield I figure to be much better than last year, by reason of experience.

Also the boys are strong for MicX«y Cochrane, who .know, no superior behind the plate Mickey's baseball wisdom and dynamic personality are pretty sun to be .reflected in the efforts o (he Tiger pitchers, who have needed a smart catcher for several years.

Do yon think you could do the job as well as youv wii'e duos? On the same amount of money? Be honest. The housewives of the nation study and know their jobs. They read the advertisements .regularly. They keep themselves informed of the best offerings of the stores. They are expert purchasing agents. These purchasing agents, from necessity or individual desire, aim to make every dollar spent velvirn a full one hundred cents' worth in value. They know their needs. They know through the advertisements just where these needs can be best supplied at the least cost. Such intelligent buying saves time ami effort and money, it results in a management of the home that is truly efficient. Here's some good advice for all of us. Read the advertisements. Read them everyday. Through them we can know exactly what we .want before we go to buy. This is the surest way of securing full value for every dollar you spend. Clarence H.
