They bagged down this season after iU'mo:i- stiallna what they were ci<>:il>!» of, and now there ore unmistakable signs that they nre en their wuy again. With 1 only four hitters absve .300 and one of them, Ken O'Dea not playing regularly, the Cubs make their final bid for the bunting on the 'swinging tals of Frank Demnrec, the mini who once wnsn't. wanted, ami Hilly Herman, the gft-up-and-uo any of lliclr infield, and on the pitch- Ing arms ot the best all-around staff in baseball. « * * Hark (o First liiise The flops of Angle Gulan and Phil Cn'vniTctln have had most to do with Cub miseries'this trip.
