At Arkansas State College. Indian Head Coach JOHN RAUTH has signed him to a grant-in-aid scholarship, the first such cage deal completed by the school this year. . * * * DOY PANNELL, his high school boss, hates' to see him go. From Leachville, that is. Not to State. Pannell, who was named yesterday to this sum> mer's Arkansas high school all-star staff, has been at Leachville five years, just long enough for him to watch and help Ward grow from a potential threat in junior high to an accomplishment of all-state recognition in this, his senior season. Rauth considers the Leachville lad an "outstanding prospect. He has great potential as an outside player." SO GAYLON will be going to the same school that big brother NORMAN WARD attended upon , graduation. But Norman stayed just one year, did not letter and is now working for the telephone company ' Both Wards handled the pivot for Leachville in their time. Although Coach Pannell didn't get to work with or watch Norman as much, he thinks Gaylon was th« better of the pair. "But I believe," said the. coach, "that's because Gaylon had a better opportunity to play more and develop. * * * DEFENSE AND REBOUNDING are called Gaylon's top talents.

COURIER NEWS THUHSDAT, APRIL 9, 1939 By ED W1LKS Associated Press Sporis Writer This is the day major league baseball starts bust- in' out all over. The traditional openers, both threatened by rain were to get the pennant races moving a day early in Washington and Cincinnati this afternoon. In the American League the Washington Senators and Baltimore Orioles were paired in the nation's capital with Vice President Richard M. Nixon in the middle. The Veep was to loss out the first ball as stand-in for Presi. dent Eisenhower, who is vacationing with the GOP — Grand Old Putter. The expected scramble for the National League flag was to get under way with Pittsburgh's long prostrate Pirates, still 'burning 'rom last year's pennant fever, going against the darkhorse Reds. The good-pitch, no-sock Orioles, sixth last year in the.AL, went intb he new season with the best ex- libilion record of any major eague club. They capped that spring success C17-8) with a 3-0 decision over Philadelphia at Bal- 'imore Wednesday. Rookie Jack 'isher knocked off the Phils with three-hitter. * * * BOSTON'S Red Sox, who open at Vew York against the world cham- )ion Yankees Friday were second lest in the spring standings, fia- shing with a 15-11 record when Vednesday night's exhibition with he Chicago Cubs . (12-14) was ained out at Houston. The , Los Angeles Dodgers, the lub that was too good to finish eventh last year but did, led Na- ional League entries in the exhi- itions with a 13-10 mark, al- wugh they dropped a 123 deci- ion Wednesday to the Milwaukee Iraves at Jacksonville. Fla. In other exhibition finales Wed- esday, Cincinnati's southpaw ookie, Jim O'Toole, beat the hicago White Sox 3-1 with a vo-hitter at Indianapolis; & five- an pitching act by the San Fransco Giants blanked Cleveland 0 on three hits at Omaha; the a n k e e s clubbed their Inter- itional League farmhands at ichmond 10-2, and the Kansas ty A's beat Dallas o£ the Ameran Assn. 6-5. » * V THE PHTLS, 11-14 for the exhi- tion schedule, managed just iree singles off Fisher, a 20;ar-old right-hander, who wal- ped a two-run triple. Milwaukee, favored to have a »rd World Series-dale with the ankees, chased Sandy Koufax ith a six-run first inning against e Dodgers. O'Toole nailed a starting job ith the Reds (13-15) after giving p a first-inning home run to Jim Loes Is Given Back to the Orioles So Is Rain) POLE POSITIONS Landis. Dick Donovan was loser for .the White Sox (13-10), after blanking the Reds for five frames.

The Yankees (14-12), batted around in a four-run first am hreezed at Richmond. But Kansas City (12-13) needed an RBI double by Whitey Herzog in the ninth to 'get past Dallas. BALTIMORE (AP)—Billy Loes again is an Oriole and facing Bal- timore baseball brass is the problem of what to do with the unpredictable, pitcher. "If the guy can pitch, and he certainly looked like he could when he left us, we might as well use him in relief and see how much help we can get out of him," Mid Manager Paul Richards. "After ihit I doubt If we could fcade Urn anyvaf. wtu> woujd waat him?" The Orioles announced Wednesday (hey had voided the trade that sent Loes to the Washington Senators for pitcher Vito Valen- tinetti last week. Loes reported to the Senators complaining of a sore arm. It was later diagnosed by Dr. George A. Resta, Washington team physician, as "an incomplete rupture of the right shoulder muscle." Oriole General Manager Lee MacPhail said it was decided to tancel the deal voluntarily. Ted Head.
