(/!>,—Red Rolfe, who had charge of the Detroit farm system before he was promoted to HIP manager's post. Is in the unfortunate position of not being able to blame anyone else for his troubles. . . Detroit, the holiest team in the American League for a while, begun to slip when George Kell was hurt and Red is rinding that he not only hasn't adequate replacements now. but the prospects for help from (he farms next yccr are poor. . .

Metz says he has had more than 50 inquiries about the three-month course, but he'll only accept 20 klris who'll pay $1.000 apiece for the course. ... if Dick needs an Assistant in this ranching-golfing proposition, the obvious guy seems to be Johnny Bulla.
