ON DOWN THE SPORTS TRAIL By PAUL MICKELSON Pittsburgh, Jan. 17, (/P).—Tims merry Pittsburgh Pirates of pprin baseball fame have forced footbal Coach, Jock Sutherland and hi anti-Rose Bowl team right off th trout pages of the local news papers. Since the Pitt footballer wrapped their togs'in moth balls the Pirates have kept the cilizenr agog by some right smart long distance harpooning that promise to result in as much good for th. ball club as a National League pen iiant. And it may even bring jus that. Club President Bill Benswangei who confesses there are nuito few baseball men who know mop about the game than he does, open ed the barrage by announcing wba the Pirates needed w-as new faces that, the Pirate management wa ready to swop "star for star" will any club. Between masbie shots on hi favorite golf course in Florida, Pan Vaner read this pronouncement "What he mean's," retorted th "Big Poison" Man, "is that he want cheaper faces." Naturally, a pop-off like that fron hip. Paul didn't look so good for Bil Bc-uswanger bill. Hill took it ii Sn-ppt William fashion by saying "Paul Is wrong, but. he's a grea ball player. 1 guess a groat bal player should ge able lo pop off.' Then came Forrest (Woods' Jensen, the oulfloder, and It wa different. Woody was quoted in Wichita, as saying the Pirate man agement was "cheap" and tha Manager Pie Traynor causes what ver trouble there Is in the club Benswanger, Traynor aud quite a few Pirate fans blew up over that Jensen insisted he was misquote but the reporter likewise insistel Jensen bad read the story before i was published and that he (tin reporter) had suggested the bal player take some of the "fast hop' off the bristling statemeut. Traynor, regarded around thi National League as a milk toas type of guy, .burned up when hi read Jensen's blast. "I can understand a star playei popping off and attracting so mucl public notice," boiled Pie, "hut a .27fi hitter like Jensen getting Hi headlines IB something that amazes me."
