(AP)—This St. Louis Cardinal club with its gilt-edged pitching can finish anywhere from first to fourth in the National League. It all depends on how tiie aging regulars stand the gaff. .... Manager Eddie Dyer has a hatful of problems in all j^epavtments except pitching. If the Red Birds are to challenge Brooklyn 1'or the pennant, its six-deep starting staff must carry the club. * — — No manager In the league can throw bettor pitchers at you day Eddie Dyer afler day than I Dyer. Howie Pollct, I Harry Brechcenj Al • Braiie and Max Larjler are the southpaws. j Gerry Staley and Red Munger are the righthanders. Add Ted-.

The 35-year-old veteran doesn't think It's serlou» but he has seen little action. Lanler, troubled by a cold in his back, has been ineffective.

JM OaragloU will split the flrst string duty with John Bu'cha, .289 at Rochester, the third man. Maybe they'll wind up making a deal with Cincinnati for Walker Cooper although the Reds say "no."
