Sallba is working on the exhibition schedule which probably will Include good college teams, nnd possibly some clubs in organized ball. Mystery surrounds the manager ol the niythevillc Club, to be named Giants regardless of the monickers of other organizations in the Northeast Arkansas League. Only Terry, DeBeiry and Sallba know his Identity, and until nix contract is safely tucked away in the Hies his name will not be divulged.

We were impressed at the hustle and spirit of all, as well as the apparent fine condition of the athletes, and came away with the conviction that whatever clubs finish ahead of the Giants they have a first class fight on their hands. The. Infield, composed of John McCarthy, tall rookie who is a fielding marvel at first base, Burg- sss Whitehead, second base, Dick Bartell, shortstop, and I/™ Chi- czza, third base, the Memplilan, looks like money in the bank. They arc a perfect combination of fielding skill and precision. Jie Moore, Mel Ott, and Hunk .Lelbtr, In the outfield showed tremendous hitting power. Especially was Lclber driving out long, powerful drives. The leading pitchers, Hal Schumacher, Freddy Flt7.siuitnons, King Call Hubbcll, "Clabbo" Gabler, Clyde Casllcmrm, "Lefty" Clark, and others were working hard and appear to be ready for the opener right now. Gus Maneuso and Henry Damiing give ample protection behind tlip p]nti>. The Giants Imve a bumper rookie crop that looks good, too. Many arc up for His first time.
