Coo- relief pitching by Art Herring saved the Pirates in the ninth wh«pi the Braves put over two nun, but fell one short as Pitts- tach:'won, 4 to 3. at Boston. Herring took over for Truett (Rip) Swell who went out vylth finger noosbncss on his pitching hsvnd In bout the changes for his 1017 •thall team. But his reasons arc, as usual, sound ones. The serious-faced head coacli paused over a list of high school :'prospects long enough to deliver i\ well-taken lecture on mass morale and psychology, lie shifted the emphasis from his own team's possibilities to the changed attitude of other teams toward Arkansas, "Because wo upset the dope and finished higher than we were supposed to !asl year, every team we face will lie readv for us 100 per rent." he said. "That kind of feeling is worth a touchdown or more in any game." If he could build a team out of concrete and steel, Barnhill emphasized, the problem of psychology would not exist.
