Feb 7, (.P) King Carl Hubbell took time off from his teaching dutise here today to predict that the New York Giants stand as good a chance of winning the National league pennant this year as any other club. Directors of the Giants farm system since 1943 and currently in charge of the Giants' baseball school here which has enrolled more than 225 students. Hubbell reluctantly turned to the parent clubs chances in the 1948 campaign. Pitching Is Key "We've got plenty of power In the field, as much as anybody," he said. "The pitching we get will determine where we finish. "Dave' Koslo. Larry Jansen, Monty Kennedy. Clint Hartung. Lioyd McGowan. Bill Ayres, Andy Hansen and Joe Beggs will have to carry most of th load. That's the way it looks now. "If we get the pitching, we miht go all the way.'' Hubbell. whose famous screwball won him 253 victories in a 16-year stay with the Giants, was openly impressed with the San-ford layout. Large Layout The Giants have rigged up eight diamonds on the Naval air station's property which has been leased from the city of Sanford. Mess halls, sleeping quarters and other training camp necessities are located on the field. SPORTSMEN !

Goodman, who served as skip per of the Dayton, Ohio entry in the class D Ohio state' loop last year, will take over the managerial reins from Phil Seghl. who guided the Bucs to a driving second place finish last season in one of the tightest pennant scrambles ever produced by the Georgia-Florida league. Seghl wil remain in the Pittsburgh organization at an undisclosed assignment. No definite training plans have beea released to date, but it is expected that Goodman will report 5? Ival Goodman Ten years under the big tent . . , to Bartow sometime around the first of March to take over the spring training activities o! the Buc crew. Train In Bartow The local entry, together with numerous class C and B members of the Pittsburgh chain, will workout at the South Florida base. The colorful Goodman, one of the most popular players to sport the spangles of the Cincinnati Reds in recent years, was rated among the top performers of the National league 'or many years, during his lengthy career. He broke into the big leagues with the Reds in 1934 and remained a regular performer with the Cincinnati entry until the 1943 season when he left the ranks of the Red legs and donnel the togs of the Chicago Cjabs. Goodman put in two seasons with the Bruins and bowed out of the big-time when he dre his release after the completion of the 1944 season. The wiry star, who packed only 165 pounds on a fie-foot-10-inch frame, was one of the 2227 7 f V , ' ' ' i Car most feared distance hitters in the entire loop, when he was at his peak. In 1938 he set jl home run record for Cincinnati players when he belted ?0 pitches out of the loop parks. And he twice led the senior league ir. three base hits. Keen Student During his big league career, Goodman, who was considered a keen student Of he game, played under such outstanding managers as Billy Southworth, Charley Dressen, Bill McKechnie. Charlie Grimm and Jimmy Wilson. During his playing career Goodman followed the usual pattern for ball players not actively engaged in baseball during the winter months. He spent practically all of his off season time at home or outdoors. The former star, who is married and has three children, is a great outdoor sportsman and hunted and. fished as much as possible. Since closing his National league playing career, however, Goodman has purchased a theatre in his hom town in Cincinnati and has spent most of his off-season time working there. While no indication was made as to whether or not Goodman would attempt to fill a spot in the Buc line-up, it is not likely that he will do more than fill an occasional pinch-hit role. The former slugging star, now in his fortieth year, underwent an operation last year whkh practically forced him to call a halt to his active career. Started With Shawnee Goodman, who broke in with Shawnee, Okla. in the old Western association in 1930. enjoyed a long, colorful and successful diamond career on his way to the top. Moving around the Western loop Goodman put in the seasons of 1931 and '32 with the Fort Smith. Ark. and Bartlesville. Okla, entries before moving up to Columbus, Ohio, in the American association late in the 1932 campaign. In 1933 Goodman was back with Houston in the Texas loop but before the season was over he had climbed back up to Rochester in the International league. At Rochester Goodman rounded out the 1933 season and put in a full year in '31 before catchi.ig the eyes of the Cincinnati scouts and moving ip for his big chance with the Rhinelanders. Goodman, who is of English-Irish descent, was oorn in North-view Mo. on July 23. 1908. NOTICE I. R. MELOY Now Barbering at McMillan's Barber Shop mm Inc. Opp. Colonial Hotel i
