'PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,)' COURIER NEWS Athletics, Use to Cellar, Don't Like Hot Food, R,arefiecl Air This'Is the flrsl of a series ot stories on major league training eaihpj aiid 1931 prospects. BY HAKUV GltAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Service .MTJXICO CITV'—Connie Mack imd- the • -Philadelphia Athletics nre complaining about the altitude -of Mexico .City and yenrn for-that" dear Port Myers,'where they trained for so many years. At first thought, it .might, be asked just what Senor Mack and Jils men have to grumble about. They are 7.348 feet above sea, •which Is H.098 feet higher than they'll finish In the American League in 1037. Eerier Mafk broiujhr the Athletics to the land of the Mpnle- >,umas for several reasons. Tlio venerable ambassador realized that liny would be made to look and . feel good nfii semi -prof cssiorinl native clubs, and Jic could gel money without being charged with obtaining it under :false protcnscs. ,The noble .athletes were made to., feel at home the first (lay •having to .drive a herd of sheep aiid mules out'of the local orchard, Parqua Delta. Wrick: fell that his htltcrs wouk jbe encouraged by the basebal traveln? like a golf ball \vhei struck on the snout In the rare- fleM ; atmosphere of the Mexlciti 'capital.

About all the Athlcllcs have beeii-nblc to do since, the flrsl contingent reached here, Feb. 21 is -hit. Pitchers 'can put little on the pellet, nnd the entire piirlj J ;o !\ roy l 1 ) vno nu ' : Is -far behind In.Uio comlllion- Is the third man. liif schedule due to the plnj-ers inability to run any great distance because they run ! out o breath. A few days of cold ant rain increased .the problem. The stomachs of Bill Werber Harry Kelley, Carl Doyle, He nil at Fink, and several others wen upset by highly seasoned Spanlsl food. Mack had to campalgi for?more.-American dishes. Kelley, who von 15 gnmes nnd was beating everybody when an' appendectomy yanked him rlasl fall, worried himself inlo calling a physic.hu>, and then obtained; Senor Mack's permission lo worki with the Minneapolis Millers atj New Braunsfels, Vex., unlll ' the; Athletics return to the, States. April 1. Keliey's problem Is n veighty one, and he couldn't gel it off In the country of mountains and- temples. The Athletics sank to their lowest depths when the Philadelphia magnates needed money and senor Mack decided that It wns time to break up his last championship arms. Senor Mock, although past ihc allotted three score years nnd _ .. s ten, started to rebuild from the ground up. His outfit now is in the .middle stage of the transition, and the venerable leader threatens to stir up considerable trouble In 1938: Bill Cifscll Tries Comeback Bill Cissell, back from Baltimore, where he hit .350, adds batting punchr.at; second base, and should prove a valuable acquisition if, after all these jears and many chances, he behaves himself. Werber is an ornery lluie cuss •with all kinds of ability, and out of meanness may. turn out to be of more use than Pinky Higgins at third base. Werber doesn't think much of Joe Croniri, and Is out to show the directorcf the Red Sox that trading him for Higgins was just anv other of the series of misUixos charged against the management of the Boston brigade. The crafty Kelley will top the hurling corps ,and Le e Ross an(1 Randall Peninngton Oumpert, young rishl-handers, who appeared to be future greats last season should be vastly improved • To the pitching staff, Senor Mack has- added George Caster, who won 23 games and the pennant for the Portland Coasiers in we- Hud Thomas and Almon Williams, who bagged-18 and, 17 for Atlanta respectively; and Edgar Smith a smart southpaw who recorded 20 victories for WUllamsport despite a Mrejarm. All'of them appear far ahead of George Turbeville, Doyle, and Pink who struggled along with the A' last term and who still are among those present.
