Wofhingron AL 4-1545 By ARNOTT DUNCAN BILL RIGNEY moved Dary] Spencer from shortstop to second base this spring! knowing there would be detractors and! hecklers. Spencer, many followers of the San Francisco! 'Giants believed, was no worse than the second best! shortstop in the National League last year. And he had looked capable, rather than flashy, at second six years ago for the Giants. So, as he prepared to break camp here tonight and trundle toward the start of the National League season in St. Louis April 10, Rigney was most pleased at the way Spencer has taken hold on the tough! side of the double play, the one in which much of the action is behind the key gloveman. "I have always," said Rigney, a onetime infielder himself, "thought Spencer would be even better as a second base-| man. He's looked great." Spencer has learned to get the ball away without a step now. Another man singled out Giants third baseman Jim Davenport for glowing words. "I've seen Pie Traynor and a lot of others," Lefty O'Doul said. "Davenport is the greatest third baseman I ever saw." * + * BITS 0' THIS AND THAT . . . Eddie Bohn, chairman of the Colorado athletic commission, Jfkes to make sure the major fights staged 'in his state are good matches and not the type to defraud the public. So he doubled up a brief Easter vacation with an inspection of Zora Folley here before Folley headed for Denver and a 10-rminder next Tuesday with Willie Besmanoff. Folley, Bohn reasoned, might have been cut or somehow hurt during his solid whacking on Hank Thurman in Phoenix March 10 ... Superstitious Jerry Lewis picked the then New York Giants to win the National League pennant while in Phoenix the spring of 1954 and that year went a step further. He picked 'em to win the Series in four straight, bet it that way, and collected a bundle when the Giants" rode over Cleveland . . . This spring Lewis, half owner of the KoKo, who is putting on a fine show there this week, made another prediction: The Giants to win the pennant again. But no four-straight in the Series . . . * * * SPORTS EDITOR GEORGE McLEOD of the Tucson Citizen predicted that this, the'13th season of major league teams conducting spring training in Arizona, would prove anything but unlucky. Weatherwise, he couldn't have been more accurate. And Ted Williams gets hurt and leaves the Red Sox camp before the annual barnstorming trip almost every spring anyway . . . A Japanese sportswriter who looked in on the spring training here says sumo, pronounced s'mo, remains the big sport in his land in spite of an avid interest in baseball. And the champion is Wakano Hana, a 235-pound whose name means Young Flower . . . The judo champ is 250-pound Rikido-San. His name means Power Mountain . .. Artie Dixon, who boxes Jimmy Martinez here April 14, is described as a flurry fighter somewhat along the lines of Kid Gavilan. But Dixon isn't yet as good at it as the Cuban Keed, whose flurries earned him the welter title. Gavilan used to confuse judges by timing one of his bits of action each round for the final 10 seconds, thus leaving the impression as the bell sounded of impressive activity throughout . . .
