I Gone are Hie familiar faces of I Guy nush, Pat Malonc, Jim weaver, Bud Tinning, Dick Ward, R\g& Stepheiison, Babe Herman, Denny Talc, nnd Hob O'Panell. To tin Wrigley fold have come 10 assorted youngsters mid three veterans. .Freddie Lindslrom and Lnny French, from Pittsburgh, iiml 'lex r Carleton from St. Louis. ' ' Despite this general housecleiui- Ing, which ellinlnnleil all the "playboys," Boss Grimm denies up and down that dissension In the ranks caused his outfit to do a Jackknife from the top of the heap near ihe close of last season > National League pennant race. ."All our strength was on tne bench lust year because of injuries," says Charley. "We hud our regular learn on the iiuld but (hi times. There was no Internal strife. Ball players have good and had years, nnd we Imcl our lenn one last season. "I'm lakjng a chance on build, ing for tlie future this season, Grimm continues. "I'm going to || give some younger fellows n cluincc to make good where (lie veterans have failed." Charley Cracks Whip Manager Grimm is "more than satisfied" with his deal with the Pirates,.. In which the Dues got Bush, Herman, and Weaver for Lliiflstrom and French, and the- trade of Tinning and Ward for Hiirlcr Carlelon from St. Louis. Like the Icnm, Boss Grimm has changed. ",rve been a good fellow in ! thc past," he says, "but from now on I'll wnkc Simon Legrec look like Pollyamin. I'll stand for no more monkey business."

French, the big southpaw, nnd Carleton will Join Lon- nle Warneke to form Chicago's "big three." Veteran holdovers are Charlie Root, on Ihe raegcd edge, Bill Lee and Roy Joiner. Four rookies are showing their wares. Clay Bryant,, 'up from New Orleans, where he won 10 and last 10, and Tom Casey, from Atlanta where he won 8 and lost C, seem to have impressed Grimm tlie most Both are big fellows and right- handers. .. The other two arc Roy Henshaw, tiny left-hander who hail a swell recpr:! of 1C wins and 4 losses with- Los Angeles last sen- son, and Fabian Kowalik. late of Buffalo, where he won 18 and last Gabby Boss Catcher Charles Leo HnrlneU remains head man" in the receiving •department. The veteran 35-ycnr- old backstop, with 12 -years' service behind him. still has one of Ihe best arms in the league Three youngsters, all under 22. arc battling for the two relief 'berths under Hartnett. They are Wall Goebel, up from the Pacific Coast League Angels; James O'Dea from Columbus, ana Walter Stepnenson who drew pav checks at Lafayette' La., last season. Lindstrom at third adds a decided punch to the Chicago Infield '"Grimm's way of thinking. Billy Herman continues to have a leech-like hold on second base' and Billy j urm again wm holt j down the shortstop .position Phlt Cavarretta. a first baseman, and Edward Cihockl. rookies, hope they •Rill fit Into the scheme or thln« in; the Infield. "I'll take m'y outfield against the pick of the crop." Thus Charlie Grimm sums up the situation in the Cub outer garden/where Hazen Cuyler. Chuck Klein, and Tuck Slainback room. Jobs of all these regulars will be In danger, however, if a newcomer up from Chicago's Los An _ gelcs training farm, can hit bio league pitching. The young felto Is 24 -year-old Flank Demaree, win led the Pacific .Coast League hitters last year with an Impressive .338 average and a long strinK o circuit clouts. Up in the air BO those Culj outfielders, classed by Manager Charlie Grimm as the best In the league. Left to right, arc Kiki Cuyler, Angle Galan, Tuck Stalnback, and Frank Dcmarec.
