Charley's face Is red from exposure to California's bright sun, but It's, redder from talking about the brilliant Messrs. Rip Collins and Leroy Parmclee. He thinks these gentlemen, hired from St. Louis in exchange for Lon Warneke, have strengthened the Cubs Immeasurably since last year's 131 roldo. i And it's just as well, too, because folks are still wondering Ijbiv and why the Cubs failed to top the National League flag In l»3li. Philip K. Wrlgley, who pays the bills, is among those stumped, i>nd annoyed. Jack lilivelt's presence with (he Bruin entourage may be-significant.

"And then, too, our weakness at first base last year is solved by •Collins.: He's the hardest hilling first baseman . hi the National. He'll add plenty of punch to thc team.
