MON'DAY. JAXUAI1Y'2G, 19;U The Minds Behind the Thrones Blytheville High Sponsors'.

Ing schools ol i Mississippi county in tills state and 'Peniiscol county In Mirsourl participating at 'he invitation ol Blytheville high school. - The biggest crowds yet to witness cage contests nl the armory will come here from the southeast Missouri lowns and Mississippi county schools for tlic g-iinw. ; Teams of Blytheville W11 son. i Leachville, Shawnee, Osceola nni Luxora in Mississippi county, ami Cooler, Steele,. Holland nnd Brag- gadocid In Missouri will play In the tourney. ' Wid Matthews, .popular Catuth- ersville, Mo., coach and official, will' referee the Saturday contests whlb j other officials jrttt be supplied by' the local high school. The visiting Missouri Icains will probably rate, favorites lo carry th2 invitation tournament championship back lo Missouri with them. Steele, Holland and Cooler have good quintets. The Mississippi coiui- ly aggregations do not rule so highly on paper but may spring u surprise and upset the invaders from Missouri. The Blylhevillo Chlckasaws can hardly he classed as serious contenders for the tsur- ney title as they have been defeated rather easily by several learns which will play.

BY WIU.IAM 1IKAI!C!I£R NEA .Service Kpnrls Editor NEW YOHK.— A colorful old baseball face bobs back into t h c major league picture with the return ol '/.achary Davis Wheat 1C coach Brooklyn's Dear. Delightful Dodgers. ZaclVs job ostensibly will be to try lo keep some kind of Indian file among Hie Dodgers on Ihc ba$> paths. The Dodgers, you know, | have n penchant lor deploying as skirmishers once they gel their feet on the bases. Zni-li will strive ear- neslly to. prevent Indiscriminate Barnes of leap frog between Dodgers who aro supjxxsed to be occupying respectively third nnd first • base. Wilbeit Robinson, of course. j is slill Hie team's manager. But those \vlio know something of the tangled baseball affairs of Flatbush say that the advent of Wheat, a pjjmlar Brooklyn Idol, as coach, means lhat Ihe Dodgers now will have two" managers, neither of them even faintly resembling your i Uncle Wilbert. A few unkind peo- I pic have even said that Coach Ivy ! Olson really managed the Dodgers last year, Uncle Wilbcrl's chief duties having been the discussion, fine points of the day's strategy with taxi drivers, outside the park after the game. ; During Wheat's playing days with Drcoklyii, ite nnd Robbie never roomed together. Robbie never has been seen with his arm around Ivy- Olson, either. Judge Sieve McKeev- c-. who will not walk on the same sido of the street that Wilbsrt treads, is half owner .of the Dodgers, and It is said that he .was' behind the movement to bring Wheat back to prepare him to become manager of the team in 1932. With Olson coaching on third this year. Wheat struggling to hold some Impetuous Robin on first with a couple of men on second and with Uncle Wilbert In Ihe dugout reading his mail, the situation may resolve itself into a contest to see I who can do the most managing on ny given afternoon—Wheat.or.
