PAGE Even AVilfi 'Its Daffines? Stengel Has Club Tlial May Go, Places. KniTOR'S NOTE: This Is all- other of a series or articles on (he big league training rainys. It lells of the. prospects 'of Uin Brooklyn BY HARRY QKAYSON Sports Kilifor, NIvA .Service ORLANDO, Pla., March '25-1 landed at Orlando with n great deal of apprehension. . Tliere were immlstaknWfi signs late last season tha't the Brooklyn Dodgers were out. to violate all tlie fine old traditions of Eli- bets Reid In 1035. Wliat would baseball do without Its Dafflness Boys? But Casey Stengel quickly allayed our fears. The Dodgers nre still the Dodgers. Stengel got a new three-year contract and a substantial false for v finishing In sixth pWe. Thnt could happen only In Brooklyn. "Casey Stengel belongs to the Brooklyn fans." said President Mc- Keevcr, like a true Brooklynest 1 . "He may have lo do it without , too much pitching or any other one thing, but he'll manage the ' Dodgers as long as I am president." . Brooklyn won more games in the National League than the |»n- nam-gathei-lng Detroit Tigers grabbed in the American during the last month and n half of the 1934 campaign. The stretch-burning St. Louis Cardinals copped' only. two or three more' engagements than the Dodgers during ; the same period. . . • * * ...Slurs Slud Daffy Roster Tlie Dodgers have one of the .great 'right-hand pitchers of the business in Van Llngle. Mungo. : .They possess one of the game's brilliant young shortstops In Linus . Ercy. Leu Kocnccke eslah- llshed a major league fielding rec- ; ord with only two errors, both debatable,. In center field. Ralph Boyle led senior louu llychasers In .assists,. nllliough limited to mo 'contests. . . With nil this going on there appeared to be reo! danger of the Dodgers sncrlliclng their entertaining qualities for baseball.

"T^fe.

"We sent Tremark to Buffalo lost summer, and Hay Schalk who Ian so-large himself, shipped him back Schalk couldn't believe-that Nick was big enough to play ball even after lie hit a home run. : "Then we sent Tremark to a New York-Pennsylvania League outfit managed by Elmer Voter «ho once played third base -for Cleveland. Voter Is a little, bald- headed bloke, but lip wouldn't even give Tremark:^ uniform. "When Tremark' returned to Brooklyn, there was a new cop at the players' gate. The cop mistook Nfc!c for one of the neighbor's children, and refused him admittance. "Tremark rushed vm to Business Manager Bob Qulnn in high dudgeon, and hit the rafters when old Bob failed to recognize him out of^ uniform. ' I may fail to land or develop a pitcher to help Mungo, Emu Leonard, Ray Benge, and Jahnny Bablch, but I'll farm out Tremark If It takes all.summer." Yes sir-ee! The Dodgers are still the Dodgers.
