(AP) — Frank Lane, who consummated 241 trades involving a total of 353 players during his seven years with the Chicago White> Sox, doubts whether he'll make a deal for the St. Louis Cardinals before the start of the 1956 baseball season. NOTICE OF HEARING A petition has been filed with the City Council by Harvey Stewart and Hays Store, Incorporated, seeking to vacate and abandon that part of College Street extending nortl, from East Main Street to. th/; northeast corner of the present j Hays Store building, in the City of' Blytheville, Arkansr;. Ah persons interested in said mutter should make known their objections at the Council meeting to be held on the 13th day of March, 1956. W. I. MALIN, City Clerk. 2/16-23| The new general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals was found behind the batting cage at Al Lang Field watching intently as the players' went through their paces in the Cardinals' first spring training drill. "It's like starting all over again," said the man who converted a drab cellar-dwelling White Sox outfit into a hustling, colorful contender for the American League flag. "I consider this a challenge. No matter what I did in Chicago, no matter how much success I enjoyed with the White Sox, it doesn't mean a thing to the people in St. Louis. Fans Waat Pennant "The fans in St. Louis want a pennant. So do I. I think we can bring them one in three years, years. We're not interested in just finishing in the first division. We're interested in finishing on top." It was at ths point that he was asked whether he had any trades in mind. •No," he replied 1 frankly. "I doubt very much if we'll make a deal. Oh, I could have made several since I took over as general manager. In fact, I can make one right now—one that would insure us a first division finish this year But I won't make it. "It would mean giving up young talent—our future pennant hope —for veteran players who undoubtedly would pull us up several po- sitions this year, but would be of doubtful value after that." The "young talent," of course Include such youngsters as Bill Virdon, the National League's top rookie last year, and Ken Boyer, the fine freshman third baseman, who have been coveted by other clubs. # The tourney starts Feb. 23 but the ' Paps won't see combat until Friday morning the 24th at 11:15. Their opponent will be Ramsey Junior High of Ft. Smith. Neither the Paps nor the Ft. Smith Juniors are seeded In the meet which will be held this year in Little Rock. Hot Springs received top seeding. Monday night the Paps sprinted to an easy 14-3 first quarter lead but moving into the second frame they fell apart and only scored a pair of points before the intermission buzzer. They hit eight out of 22 free flips. Bill Harison picked up II points for himself, while the other scoring went like this: Rounsaall 5, Watson 5, Smith 2, Dorris 3. In the first game on Monday's card, the Blytneille Paps B team was clipped by the classy Poplar Bluff Junior B's, 31-17. Donovan Says Chisox Will Win Flag CHICAGO Ufl — Pitcher Dick Donovan predicts a pennant for his Chicago White Sox and 20 victories for himself. "If it hadn't been for missing about a month last season with an, appendix operation,. I may been a 20-game winner," he said yesterday. "I was 13-4 before the operation. When I came back I had lost 12 pounds and undoubtedly wasn't as strong as I felt I won only two more and lost five. "I'm certainly shooting for 20 this time," he continued. "And with a few breaks here and there the White Sox should take the pennant." Duane Merritt's seven, Fred White's five and Mike Dash's five accounted for the Blytheville scores in the prelim. Plan for Heating the Freeze NEW VORK — (NBA) — Here's solution No. 1.997,876 for basketball's ills: Sportswriter Bill Boeder offers a plan to stop the stalling tactics used by California against San Francisco, the advantage a big man has — and excessive fouling when one team freezes the ball. The plan would make it mandatory for a player to bounce the ball at least once every time it comes into his possession. The player couldn't shoot or pass before dribbling it once. This would make freezing possible, but tough to do. The defense could close in on a man who had to bounce the ball and his only alternative would be to get rid ot It. Newell Had one man sUiidins with the ball for nine minutes against San Francisco. The other nine players stood around and made conversation. And the plan also would force a big man to bounce the ball once if he as much as fingered a rebound or attempted to steer in a set shot. Lausse's Manager Claims It Was Butt By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO (AP) — In a brawl that had the aspects of just about everything — wrestling, football and bull fighting — long-reaching Bobby Boyd won a split 10-round decision over rugged Eduardo Lausse last night. Boyd, staggered several times by the Argentine's vicious left hooks, pulled up his edge with a harpooning left-Jab and head work. In fact, Charlie Johnston, manager ot the 28-year-old Lausse, inferred after the nationally televised scrap in Chicago Stadium that Boyd used his head so well he butted open an angry gash between Eduardo's eyes in the tliird round. "An eight - ounce glove couldn't have opened a cut in a place like that," said Johnston, who also conceded that it could have been accidental. "It was a butt. And the jarring effect from it held my boy back enough for two rounds to affect the outcome." Third Ranking Lausse, third ranking middle- Husky Defense SEATTLE, Wash. — (NBA) — The University of Washington basketball team's strong defense held opponents to a 30 per cent average on shots taken over the first 15 games.

Loes, Erskine, Spooner Ninth of a Series By WALT ALSTON OXFORD.'Ohio (AP) - I have been asked by the Associated Press to predict the pennant outcome and relate the s rength and weakness of the Brooklyn Dodgers among other thing! I would like to cooperate but some of the questions are not my type. I have never been one to predict pennants on related strengths ana weaknesses of any team. However, I believe ouv biggest problem last year was the sore arm condition of several of our pitchers, and I feel the .success of our team this year will be largely determined by the recovery of Carl Erskine ThankstoNats, Cuba Captures Caribbean PANAM ALT) — Cuba, with an assist from the Washington Senators, held the Caribbean baseball championship today. Pedro Ramos, the Senators' righthander, clinched the title for Cuba last night by limiting Puerto Rico to six hits in a 4-2 victory. Puerto Rico won the crown the last three years. Bob Boyd. the Baltimore Orioles and Chico Fernandez of the Brooklyn Dodgers also contributed to Cuba's triumph. Boyd doubled in the fifth inning to drive in the deciding run in the three-run frame. Fernandez contributed a first inning homer. It was Camillo Pascual, another Washington righthander, who shot Cuba into the series lead Tuesday night by blanking Venezuela 7-0. Puerto Rico wound up in a second place tie with Panama. Each posted a 3-3 record. Venezuela brought up the rear with 1-5. Billy Loes and Karl Spooner. Johnny Podres will be hard to replace, but Ken Lehman, Sandy Koufax, Don Bessent and Roger Craig ore young pitchers with great potential and should do the job. Our team is a year older, but I believe we have a good chance for another pennant if the pitching arms recover and if the young pitching is as good as we expect it to be.
