' • Principal, reason for the reluctance was that the job was be for only one season, after which Durocher conceivably will be welcomed back from his one year suspension.

'.\ chainjjion and supporter of his great Negro star,'Jackie Robinson, appears to be the only man Who openly has slated lie would like to haye the job. • "I'd love it," he snlii. "Managing a major league club has been my life's ambition. After all, I've served many years as a minor league manager under Mr. Rickey." • :. Because of the promotion of Rou- ihson^ to toe Dodgers as the 'first Negro player ever to reach the major leagues, it also seemed logical that Hopper might move up with him. A number of the young stars on the Dodgers played under Hopper either at Montreal or nt other way stations In the vast Brooklyn farm system and all of thern like him tremendously. Also strongly in his favor was the. fact that virtually every othei candidate mentioned 'for the pos* hw eJiminated himself..Three-" former top flight major league ma'nagers mentioned for the job, Joe McCarthy, former manager of the 'Yankees; Bill McKecluiie t lasl year's 'pilot of the Cinclnnat Reds and now '<f!
