To tills end", Bill McKcchnlc getting his port-slders ready f " the conflict. The little Scotchma ' probably will send Ed Bran (against Hobble's boys on opcnli day. Brandt pitched a couple games against the Dodgers da* South this spring, and on tho days the big Brooklyn bats wr-re strangely silent.

Then they play the Braves at home and gel the same three left-handers agnin Another series with the Phils follows in Flatbush, by which : titm Elliott and Smythe will be reit-jc up again and ready. But their troubles arc only bs ginning, for then they go to th Polo Grounds for a series with th< Giants, where they will bu:np tnu such astute sou'psws as Bill W.ils er, Carl Hubbsll and Clarence Mil chell.
