(UP)—The blc league show seemed to be moving on without htm when he .started the season as just another heavyhearted spare In the Brooklyn dugout. It seemed Incredible fit the tints (hat the Dodgers could go without the people's choice, Fred (Dixie) Walker, the "Mayor of Ebbets Field" Callan .went all the way for It Lookouts arid while he yielded rJ»iU, was sttady in the pinches.

But that was the wnv prexv Branch Rickey had ordained, it. Tills was to br> the year of destiny for the Brooklyn Dodgers "youth movement" and there svns no place In the scrint for Walker, who had climaxed his 15 year major league career by leading the league In rims-battcd-ln with 124 in 1945. That performance came on the heels of a .357 batting average which also was tops for the Icnguc with a seventh place team In 1944. All of that was discounted though, because Dixie was crowding nfi. and Rickey wanted youth to have its fling. Process His Stability However, there was a sudden revision of opinion on Walker's value to the club when he homered as a pinch hitter against the Giants, tying up a game which the Dodgers eventually won. The next, day Dixie was back right field and he hasn't been out of the lineup since. Today he lends the league In balling with a lusty .369 mark nmi Is third in •runs batted in with 25. He broke up the ball game yesterday with a 13th Inning double which scored Dick Whitman with (lie winning run in a 2 to 1 decl- history.

May 23. <UP> — A few seasons back, some sports- minded individual probably could have purchased the Nc\v Orleans Pelicans for J150.000. Today it most likely would take a half-million dollars to swing a deal for the same club. Most of that rise In Pelican stock can be attributed to Charley Hurth, general manager of thh. New Orleans club, wiio has come up with n longe range program which should keep the Pelicans well supplied with first rate players lo: years to come. Operating on trie theory that the Pelicans can't wait for major le.i- Cue help, the Pelicans have built up their own farm system which now includes three class D clubs— New Iberia, Goldsboro and Geneva. Hurth knows from experience that when a minor league club is to- lally dependent on a major league club for players, the minor league club must wait until the major league club decides which players they want to tut loose and that many Mines the minor league club is SD far behind in the race by the time i>. gels the necessary help thii winning a pennant l s out of the question. I Hurth admits there's nothing new about the idea. "We just picked up the major leagues' farm system idea and operated it under minor league control." he said.
