A good bet is that Durocher, controversial man of many baseball lives, once more will land right side up*, this time as manager of the Cardinals. Bill Rigney, bespectacled former shortstop who has the New Yofk club's Minneapolis farm club out in front in the American PisoniSlomt 13th Homtr of Stoton; Lot* 3*2 Association, is expected to be named the Giants' new manager any day now. It was more than the exhibition game between the Giants and Millers that took Horace C. Stoneham to Minneapolis. Durocher is friendly with August A. Busch Jr., who is as dissatisfied with the St. Louis club as Stoneham is with the shocking decline in New York. Busch seeks an established major league manager, was vastly impressed with Durochcr's manipulating and World Sorites performance last season.

Sometime back ;t was reported that Durocher was to land an agency for the beer arewed by the Red Birds' owner. When Harry Walker succeeded Eddie Stanky as the Cardinals' pilot not long ago, nothing was said about Dixie's kid brother be- ng anything more than a stop- jap. It would not be surprising to see Durocher resign his post at the Polo Grounds. That would give everybody an out and enable The Lip to negotiate with Busch. Durocher has a rich St. Louis background, formerly resided there and it was at Sportsma:< 's Park, now Busch Stadium, thf.t he played his finest shortstop for the celebrated Gas House Gang of 1934. Concern about a long hard summer at the Polo Grounds prompted Stoneham to move. The Giants have drawn 480,000 to date, but far in the ruck and flirting with the second division, two remaining series—six games—with the Dodgers is about all the front office has to look forward to in the way of Harlem turnstile spin. Once again Brooklyn fans have to come to the rescue of the Giants. AMERICAN LEAGUE Team— W L Pet.

"No business man in any town should allow a newspaper published in his town to go without his name and business being mentioned somewhere in its columns," says the magazine. "This does not mean you should have a whole, half, or even a quarter page ad in each issue of the paper, but your name and business should be mentioned, even if you do not use more than a two-line space. "A stranger picking up a newspaper should be able to tell what business is represented in a town by looking at the paper. This is the best possible town advertising. "The man who does not advertise his business does an injustice to himself and the town. The man who insists on sharing the business that comes to town, but refuses to advertise his own, is not a valuable addition to any town. "The life of a town depends on live, wide-awake and liberal advertising business men." Newspaper Advertising Gets Results. Give Us A Chance To Prove It. i-t 1 The Mexia Daily News
