Feller hasn't received his contract yet—he's due back In Clove- Sand today—but persons close to the club 1 said it is almost a eer- lainly lhal he'll get reduced. Poor Year He had a poor showing of nine victories, and 13 losses last season and was believed earning 550,000 on (lie strength of a great preceding season (22-8) and big drawing power. Whatever Feller Is cut, it seemed likely that It won't make up fo'r all Ihe money his fellow pitchers are asking. The requested salaries, wit hraises In parentheses, are believed lo be.roughly as follows: Wynn — $3S,oop f$5,OOp>;.Lcnion —S45.000 ($5,000); Garcia—S30 000 (S9.00). ' " "" -" " "' " Feller's cut. al most, would amount lo 25 per cent, or $12,500, assuming the $50,000 is accurate.

Garcia (after a pause): "Well try making me happy for a change You never know. I. might win ; games thai way." Hank, after fi'rst admitting Lemon and Wynn had turned him down: "Mike, you'd be wise to beat then: lo the gun. There won't be much left after liicy sign." Mike::: "You've got somclhinc there." Garcia, Wynn and Lemon will stay in Cleveland at least until Monday night, when the Cleveland baseball writers will honor them at a ribs and roast dinner as Cleveland's "Men of the Year.''
