PAGE SIX HLYTHRVILI.E (ARK.)' COURIER NBWS MONDAY, JUNK 21, I'M 3' Accountant Bluege Keeps Track Of Things For Nats; Sullivan Is Most Improved BT HARRY GRAVSON KKA Sports Editor NEW YORK.—A deader bull and the absence of |X>wor hitters has put the inside back in baseball, and Uiat happens to be the kind Oswald Louis Blucge knows best. Clark Griffith always has had success with first - year managers, and Ossie Bluege preserves the line. The old Ihlrci baseman Is not the least reason why the surprising Nationals arc riding high ill booming -Washington. Gerald I'riddy gave the Senators & second.basing combination, and may be one player the Yankees will rceret having passed along. For a year before he was brought In by New York, Prlddy was the _ most sought young man In Ihh f'i minors Walter O Briggs Si of : Detroit offered to purchase Kansas City franchise provided H included Prlddy and his partner, Scooter . Rtzzuto. Joe- McCarthy even switched the ' Incomparable Joe Gordon first base to make room for Prid-j dy, but the latter couldn't untrnck himself,. made little progress at first and third. With Gordon around, there simply was no vacancy for the Los Angeles lad at the post for which he was best fitted, so off he went to the Nats. MNK THROUGH CENTEll Shortstop Johnny Sullivan found himself the minute he was teamed with Prlddy, and the line through the center of the diamond was intact. Bliiegc calls Sullivan the most Improved athlete in the American League. He considers Catcher Jake Early's arm the finest In baseball. The outfit is getting adequate pitching from Dutch Leonard. Alex Carrasquel, Early Wynii, Milo Caiidinl the Magician and (he southpaw, Ewald Pylc, and the left- handed relief worker, Milt Haefncr : Griffith Stadium is built for fly- ball chasing, which, under the circumstances Is a break for the Home Welch Set To Settle Old Score Old Sol bore down today with all 'ils might, but the heat was nothing (o compare with what may be turned on tonight when Duck ;on and Joe Welch climb through the ropes for n big mal duel with Iwo bad boys known as Bill (Call Me William) Canny and Rough Red Roberts. The clash oMhc fjlnnls will occur in n tug match at the American Legion aieiui sometime after :30 o'clock. Funs needn't lie xurtirlsctl If tonight's set-to turns out to be a knock-ctown-and-draK-oul between Welch and Canny. Most of (he customers remember a match several months ago In which Cannv and Carlos liodrlmiex all but murdered Joe and his brother fioy in a lag bout. They also will recall that Canny was the worst offender and that he punished Joe ruthlessly with body kicks and rabbit punches. Tims, fans can expect the younger Welch lo be primed for revenge. If he gets a chance he may lass Canny up Into the general admission .-seats. He will have an able helpmate In Buck Lawson. The latter Is calculated lo have tin.' stuff lo handle cither Roberts or Canny In view of several good pei'fortn- miccs In recent weeks. However, (lie bcfrccklcd Holwrts mid his partner are no pushovers and that's why It should prove n hot match. Individual scraps will pit liob- erls against Lnwson and Welch against Canny. These will be one {fall matches, 30 minute lime limit although the tug mutch will be a Iwo out of three fall feature. Where's The Count? Let Me At Him! It such a plant.

SlMl'I.KST AND KASIKST Griffith made the soft spoken Blucgc manager because he lin'U him In the first place, got him cheap. Tlie Old Fox also took Into consideration the thought and purpose Blncge has put Into baseball. The product of Chicago's south side never mode ft thoughtless piny or decision, not once. The Senators reflect his confidence and calmness. .He has them ( |olnu things the simplest and easiest, wny.
