"i have a good ball club, one wl)lch is going lo be up in there," lie 'said. "I'm high on its chances. We; have excellent pitching and good infield nr.d outfield balance and are going to be difficult to beat. I figure we have a good to finish first and so do my players. We know the other clubs like th«i Yankees, Tigers, Indians and Red'Sox are going to take a lot of beating. But we have the potential strength to do' it." His big card is his pitching stflff. He jlias' all the members back from last year's staff which from the standpoint of earned runs allowed, shutouts pitched nnd the number of .one-run ball games won was the: best in thc league. And now it has. been strengthened by the addition of Sid Hudson, back from the'service. it may turn out to be the>-best again. . Bluege would like nothing better than' to bring the Senators n pennant and if lie gets the hitting to go '/along with his pitching he might well do it. <3qnnie Mack of the Athletics figures he has n "great "chance." "They could take it all," he said. "Ydu can't discount their, pitching ancf'all-around strength. I wouldn't be ^surprised to sec them win." Btour other managers—Joe Mc- Carthy of thc Yankees, Lou Rain or shine, Conch Bill Godwin will summon some 30-odd grid candidates for their first spring training session this afternoon.

"Nig" Hynmn, former,All-Southwest Conference tackle at the University of Arkansas, has consented to help Mr. Godwin coach tho Chicks during the spring session and was scheduled to be here today for the opening drill. Should It vnln this afternoon, Godwin probably will work the Chicks In Ihc gymnasium, otherwise the boys will go through their chores in thc open. Conch Godwin said any fans who care to watch the Chicks during thc next two weeks." Mr. Godwin ! spring practice are welcome to do told the Courier News today. The new Chick mentor declined to make any predictions as to what the Maroon and White will do next fall, but did promise that ":ny boys will be in there hustling." "I don't know how many football players I will have," Mr. Godwin so, but stipulated thnt none except coaches and players will be allowed on the playing field. "We hnve a lot of work to do and we can't have spectators out on the field," he explained, "but they are welcome to sit In thc stands or bleachers."

Press Stuff Correspondent LITTLE ROCK, Mar. 18. (UP) — Htiiitei'K with n turn toward the thrill of archery were ready today for a wtek jam-packed with rugged excitement, when they can regally shoot Arkansas' wild turkeys with, bow and arrow. Open season on the fowl—for archers only—began today and continues through Saturday. The regular season for other huiup,r fi | s from April I through April 15. rjes- ha and Arkansas Counties arc exceptions to the open season. Through a recent, emergency order by tlie slate game and fish ,commission, hunting turkoy in those counties was prohibited for two years as a conservation measure. Assistant Slute Clame and Pish Commissioner Tom Hull said in Little Rock thnt the limitation was necessary because high waters thc past four years in those counties during "nest season" dangerously diminished the tui'koy .supply. foi' he Gurider Haegg Barred From Amateur Races STOCKHOLM, Mar. 18.

"I don't know under what spc- ciiic regulation I was barred," he Snead Finishes Ahead Of Field At Jacksonville, JACKSONVILLE. Ha., Mar. 18. (UP)— Sammy Snead, who ha s been flirting with greatness ever since he left the blue ridge mountains of Virginia for the big-time golf circuit, felt today he had found the groove necessary for steady championship play. ,. The power-driving confidence stemmed mountaineer's from yesterday's victory in the 510,000 Jacksonville Open when he turned aside torrid B6u_drcau of the Indians, Steve O'Neill of the Tigers and Joe Cronin of the Red Sox—rate them as one of the clubs to beat. They could, of course, turn out to'<bc another morning glory as they were In 1944 when (hey were favored to win the pennant. They . finished n dismal eighth. Lost year when they were picked for'the second division they finish^d second, losing the pennant on the 'final day of 'the season to the Tigers.. A lot of baseball people "figured they miRht hnve won. hid hoi" owner Clark Griffith arranged the schedule so the team •finished the "season a week earlier than the other clubs to make room in .his park for thc pro-football Washington Redskins • and played so many night'games. • Bluege does^ not agree with that theory. '-._'•' •"*, '.,'• j. , ._'- ... ; "At any rate," he declared, "you can put us down as n definite contender this year. We are a lot stronger"" than last season at fielding, ,'and .we may have picked up tht batting "strength we lacked last year-to put us over. I hope so anyway." ^'jv Fishinj Season Cut DENVER (UP)—In view of an anticipate;! boom in fishing in trout^filled Colorado streams and lak«s- .this year, the state Game anti'~"Fish Commission lias moved ^ g dnte of the fishing season to May 1, 20 days later than usual; and- lowered the possession limit?from 40 to 20 fish. the National League pennant race, he answered: "We will finish among the first eight. I don't want to pull a Bill Terry, you know, and I never predict things like that. But one thing you can say for me, we arc goiii(f o be much better than last year. Just two players, Pee Wee Heese and Pete Reiser, makes the club 25 >er cent stronger." In other words he wasn't asking n question like Terry did when he wondered whether Brooklyn was still in the league. But he had a Hopeful gleam In his eye when he wondered whether Johnny Benz- ley'-j dead nrm was going to come around. "The Cardinals are counting on him to be the bell cow of their pitching staff." he pointed out. "If Johnny dosen't measure up, well, it would make a big difference." Asked whether that was an Indication thnt he -liked the Cnrds for the 1946 pennant, he smiled: "Well, you have to Ijkc (hem They really have everything. But if Bcazley's arm 1 Is dead, It wouk change the picture." •So while he didn't say so, it wa.< obvious that he figured thnt tin Cards without Bcazley may not be competition to first prize with take the M-hole total of 2«4 strokes, 24, under par and four ahead of Jimmy Dcmaret lin second place.

Roberts and Ming are up In the second and will be seen whether Roberts has much trouble pinning the shoul- lers of the sturdy little Ming. Ming iinil Tourlas have been well recommended by other promoters and should provide a well-biilanced card for this week's show. Cov.ell is a handy man with his dukes and is one .of the row lo push Roberts around. When things get too rough for Roberts lie heads for the outside of lh c ropes and stays there until things slow down a bit.

He advised archers, however, to contact the commission and get information regarding license and hag limitations before taking to the fields. "the only other open season for archers In Arkansas is on deer. Archers may shoot deer for two six-day periods—from Oct. 2H through Nov. 2, and from Nov. 25 through Nov. 30.
