March 21.—Filled with (he old ambition to break what apui'jirs lo be a lifetime on lite American League cellar, Chicago'!! Whit* Sox once again arc tossing bnscljall.s around lirooksldo Park lierc in Uiclr uumml .spring I n an clivers. Cracking Use \vhip over n regulars mid an equal number ol rookies of varied experience is Jimmy Dykes, Hie pr-pprry third sacker who inherited tlie pilol'.s bc'rth Inst summer when Owner Louis Coinls- key kicked the props Ii'Om under Lew Fonscea. Dykes Isn't the kind to go Into ecstasies about the future of his tall club. "We'll give a better account of oursckcs llian the experts think," fays Jimmy, simply. "Our recruits this year are much more impressive than last season's crop, ami if three or four of 'cm come through, it's a cinch we won't be groping around, in the cellar again." In fact, Manager Dykes says he . luis but one large worry. Two of his green youngsters are pitchers, and of the 15 (lingers who sit down at dinner every night in Hie Cliliox -camp, they are the only : liuvlers who hold their forks in [heir left hands. Richard Bock and John Michaels are the recruits with Hie .supposedly good Icfl arms. Uock, a complete strangei to Dykes, halls fram the University of Colorado uixl hits yet (o prove his worth. Michaels has eaten at the Sox spring training board before, and Jimmy sujrs he's pretty haiuiy nl tossing the ball where it should go. The lad pitched 'em for Rochester and Whitlow Wyatt will support these boys', aided' liy Big George Eainshnw and Los Tietje, who Is being counted on to blossom into ii star. Ed Durham, nlllng arm kept iilm out of action in '34, is back again. rclnuss of Luke Sewell, vel- eriin American U'ltgue catcher, bolsters the catching staff. "We'll have some young pitchers in I'hclns, Stine, ami WhU«- Itcnd Hits year," Dykes says, "and with Sewell behind the plntc the hurlers will have ival confidence In his signals." The second-string backstop may I be Bob 1'Vnner, a 200-|X>im<!CT who hil .295 for si. Paul last sra.son anil who has caught Dykes' experienced eyes n.s being a swell player. Simmons .Confident Inllcld mid outfield berths stuck Up the same n.s last year, with the exception of left (le'td. /.eke llo- nnrn, who came uramut alter ;\ hot salary nght. may be ut first, if the veteran nienti Wright, obtnlnefi from Kansas city, doe.sii't bei'ii hiiii out; Mintcr llaye.s 'nt-Second; "Lilkc Appling ut short; find Dylds at, third. The one and only Al Simmons will patrol center Instead of left Held this .sea.son. Al hit .'H\ last year, bin didn't collect as many home runs us he would have liked lo. "I'll make up for that (his year." said Simmons. "I'm going to lend the American League In hitting or know the reason why. \ cnn't promise how many home runs I'll hit, bin there will be plenty of 'cm." Until somebody can beat him out of Hie job, Hfnle Haas play right. Hay riailclilfe has first call If Hans slumps. Two recruits are after Simmons' old job In left, field. They are Ver•non Washington, purchased from Tndlminnolls. where he hatted .3G7. and Bull Hafey, who hit .322 for the Pacific Coast Missions. Washington has been smacking (he apple silly in training here, and is n good bet to gel the job.

Torts-Wets Essential "I don't intend to go through Ihe season without a couple of good left-handers on the pitching stnir," Dykes said. "Most of the hitting strength in the American League is left-handed, and. If we are to sec light (his year one or more good southpaws must show us the. way." Outstanding new hurlers in the Pale Hose camp include Ray Pholps, whose 17 victories against 10 defeats at St. Paul caused Chicago to purchase him; Lee Stinc, farmed out last season to Milwaukee, where he won 17 and lost. 0, IUKI Johnny Whiteliead'. who wen 19 and Idsl 1 10. at* Dallas; Veterans Ted'"Lyons, Sam Jones.
