"llllr Hint llnilhllMl," Tl ImliiVfil I'lilliulrllihlli': Jn u birthdiiy Interview, Conine's lustcst denial or retirement wn.s more brusque than usual ceesmsu the "old mnn" thinks that 191!) Is the year for his A's to win '.he American League Pennant after a 16-year famine. Cleveland Team To Beat Connie refused to go out on any limb and flatly predict the Mai-k- men would win the flag and regain the hcighths achieved by so many A's teams in the past. He put it ait- -.._ South Carolina will journey as, far North as Michigan. And there : kecs ' to ar? many more. Kentucky Meets Tulane But one of the best games ot them all may be one that's close to home—old Kentucky varietv. that is.| . . ... . , ,. „„,.,, This contest matches the Blue s^?* ™d b^ 1 " l . h , c ,E e "?^ "Cleveland is the team to beat,I but that isn't the whole story ol the 19-19 race. the strengthened Yan- nothing of the Boston Red Sox.' Connie was obviously optimistic about the A's though. The Mack- men, you remember, were the -,en- sation of CONNIE MACK Grass country's famous Wildcats against the Green Wave of Tulane at Louisville Wednesday night. The Xentuckiaas closed an Eastern invasion in New York Saturday by outclassing St. John's of Brooklyn, 57-30. They've six without •working up a good sweat. The Green "Wave has rolled over eight opponents. It's the only team to beat Texas so far, but most of the opposition has been minor league. Neither has played a conference game. St. Louis University, which continues to draw equal billing with Kentucky, is another stay-at-home. The Bills have only or.e game this •week—against Rice Tuesday night—and should increase their season's record to 5-0. The cow palace at San Francisco, one of the newest arenas on the big time' basketball circuit, draws some of the top intersectional r;aines of the week. Michigan Plays Stanford Michigan (4-0), defending champion of the Big Nine, will meet Stanford (6-0) and Yale (-1-0) will play St. Mary's (1-2) there tonight. Tomorrow the clubs reverse op- Txmenls. And on Thursday North Carolina State (4-1) will play San Francisco (5-1) and unbeaten Hamline will meet Santa Clara. Most areas still have a bushel of undefeated teams, but New York City isn't one of them. The big- town lost its last major all-winning.outfit when St. Johns succumbed to Kentucky. A-year ago New York Uni-| versity and Columbia remained in the charmed circle until the final weeks of the season, h Amonf-otllers which lost for the w first time Saturday were Wyoming, Utah, St. Joseph's of Philadelphia, Ohio State, Chicago Loyola, Scton Hall. Navy, Iowa, Beloit, Boston U., Arizona and Scranton, • Only three-of the major conferences have^tegun play. Yale and Dartmouth share the Ivy League lead. William and Mary. North Carolina State, Duke and Washington and Lee are undefeated in Southern Conference play as arc Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana State and Tennessee in the Southeastern Conference. The rest of the races don't start until after New Year's.

Said "As far as my club is concerned— well, it much stronger next year because we strengthened ourselves at the Major League meetings by addition to two departments in which we were weak last season— pinch-hitting and reserves.

He is'league action on December 20i quite active and remains the controlling power'behind the A's. And continues to be his one great love. That's easy lo understand, for the story of Connie Mack is the story of baseball for the last 60 years. The game's triumphs have been his triumphs, its tribulations, his tribulations and its glamour, his glamour. But he loved the game more than victory. Twice during his dazzling career he wrecked great baseball machines "for the sake of the against Altoona here. Last night's lineups: Cumberland O Pence, f .............. 2 K!OtZ. 1 ..............
