The Chicks will work under the lights Thursday night with loosening up drills, running plays, kickofi and punt returns. Starting Lineups, both offensive and defensive, are still somewhat unsettled. Most positions are set, but there are still a few is doubt, Mosley said. Top Trio Definite starters in the backfield, on both offense and defense, are the senior trio of Abbott, Akers and Jones.

The. sweep. U-4 and 8-2, coupled ers with his seventh home run of with Milwaukee's split at Chicago, reduced the Brooks' magic number to 3. Any combination of Dodger victories and Milwaukee defeats totaling 3 gives the flag to Brooklyn.
