While on a visit to his old home town of Jonesboro recently he encountered "Pug" Win- !fcr,s. Hurricane a-ssistant. The fol- •" lowing conversation passed: Pug: Hello, John Ed. where have you been keeping yourself?. I been offered several places by fhe St. Louis Cardinals, but hasn't made a choice . . . Bobo expected to get a promotion in the New York Giant chain this year, specifically to Clinton. Iowa. Class B farm club, but hasn't received the green light from Bill Terry. He may return to Fort Smith where ne has been for two seasons. Official . Western Association averages reveal that two former Bly- thcville Giants finished the '40 campaign in the select .300. circle. Joe WTarcsca. popular little Fort Smith third baseman-catcher, batted .325 in 134 games and was the fourth best fielding hot corner guardian Frank Mancuso rotner of the Cardinals' Gus. hit *1Q for Muskpgce but was seventh n fielding among the regular catchers. He had the most assists; President' Ed Barrow revealed that Phil'Rizzuto. called up from Kansas City, has a comparatively low draft number. He isn't married and might easily be called for a year's service. So the Yank management is wary about trading off Frank Crosetti or Red Rolfe. expected to be displaced by Rizzuto. Barrow also says a number of the Yankees' young pitchers may be called for service. "It is the most serious single problem we have to deal with "as we got ready for another pennant." Barrow says. -"All we can hope to do is to prepare as well as we can for any eventuality, and that means holding on to our veterans and going slow in our deals- slower than we would like to."

The Red Sox have- the fnunc- work • for a dangerous contender but it may be lost in the shuttle again unless Joe Cronin cau come up with some really sensational young pitchers. One thing in Boston's. favor seems to be, the decision to stop, relying on mediocre major leaguers.
