At the cross-roads where the stars going uj) pass the "has bccns" coining down, it looked bright for cratty Pollet ol the Cardinals and all but hopeless for White, who is still In Ihe majors only because the falch of liis old buss,. Hilly Soutliworili, now manager of the Braves. Southworth, who brought White to major league stardom when lie directed the Cardinals, picked him up for another chance when SI. xwls east him adrift because of a chronic arm ailment. And yesterday, as Iho Cards nnd Braves snuared awny in a Bunker] llli holiday double header in Bos- .011. Southwortli chose White to make his first start in a Brave:;' uniform against his old males. The 30-year-old southpaw from Pncolct Mills, S. C., had been workim; out easily for weeks for this big day and .L would have been nice to write .hat he gave his cx-malcs a good ocaling. But Hint wasn't Ihe way lhat MIC Baseball god.s decreed it and before ho liad retired a man in the first Inning he was through—perhaps for good. Two baiters got hits nnd Iwo others got walks before Ernie put, his glove in his hip pocket, and walked awny. sadly. That his bad start enabled the Cardinals lo bans out H H-hit, to 6 triumph ir. the opener ami that light-lipped Pollet went on to pitch a brilliantly fashioned, 1 to 0 second game victory for the Cardinals only added to the Irony. For It was White who crime to the Cards first and who showed the greater promise after both got their' flart down on the team's Texas League farm club al Houston. Bnlli were expected to go great, for Ihe Cardinals when they returned from military service, but something ha;l happened to While's always sensitive arm. He realized it this Spring when the Cardinals broke camp .In Ilielr picturesque Florida training layout and he remarked cryptically: "I wonder if I'll ever see St. Petersburg again." Pollet's victory was vital, coming after he haci been batted out in four straight starts. He had to be good to shade cildsler Bill Lee. who gave up only seven hits. Poilet singled to start the winning rally in the sixth in which iSrv Dusiiic. doubled home the lone run. In the opener, Stnn Musial had the hottest bat, getting a homer, double and two singles. The Cards by winning twice, cut Brooklyn's league lead lo two games.
