IU| Bhes, who now lips Ihe scales at athletes lor their parts in a celebration at Barstow, Call!., may be an indication that he is tired of the Buccaneers taking advantage of his good nature. Johnny Bizzo hit .358 for Colum bus. He supplies the outfit, with needed right- handed batting strength. Arky Vaughan again starts at shortstop, although he belongs in the outfield. Percentage and age are against the Giants. Better clubs than Horace Stoneham's have been unable to cop three consecutive championships. Carl Hubbell cannot go on forever, and as Bill Terry's Meal Tickel goes, so go the Polo Grounders Memphis Bill Is depending on Hubbell, Hal Schumacher, Cliff Melton, and Harry Gumbert, as his starters, and on Bill Lohrman to be the fifth man until'Slick Cattleman's back is well. Scholarly Burgess Whitehead, who was supposed to be frail, has been In every game for two winning seasons, and when he returned to second base the olher aftetrnoon, following his appendectomy, he looked like a chap n-ho had never been aw&y. Johnny McCarthy should improve at first base. Mel Ott doesn't belong on third base, but his presence there enables Terry to send a wore formidable batting order to the rubber. Wally Berger may be traded to the Reds for a right-handed pitcher. Terry ; wlll continue to play 'em close to Uie vest, hoping that the others make enough mistakes for the Giants to prevail. Beware the Dark Horse The Cardinals are such dark horses that Prank Frisch doesn't know who wlll catch-or play shortstop or third base.

"Jones led Snead by several strokes, and Sneart Is supposed lobe the hottest find since Johnny Me- Dermotl burst upon the scene in 1000. "Snead's defenders say, 'You can't judje a man In one tournament.' I agree with them, but the same thing applies to Jones. It isn't lair lo rate him on one appearance either. "Still, I'm willing to rest Jones' case on his performance at Augusta.

National Brings Out Caliber of Champion's Shots "It takes a real course like the Augusta National to bring out the caliber of a champion's shots. Most of the winter circuit courses are lucre drive nnd pitch Inyouls, calling for no finesse or brain work. "Jones doesn't get the practice we do in putting nt cups cut' on tricky side slopes on the greens, or tucked away In hnrd-fo-get-at spnls. "They trick up courses for tournaments. Jones plays his practice rounds on courses which are open nnd aboveboard tests." Willie Macfarlane, who should know, is quite positive lhat it is just as well for the money players that Bobby Jones doesn't intend (o make another intensive campaign. pending the payoff, which is .sonic- thing for which the professor cannot be blamed.
