(Courier News Photo) Astroth Sings Shantz Song WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. ($ — Joe Astroth, who has been catching for the Athletics ever since Bobby Shantz joined the club- has joined the chorus that says the little left- hander looks like his old self this year. Astroth says Shantz, who has ben plagued by an ailing arm, is throwing loosely and has fine stuff. He adds that Bobby's mental attitude is 100 per cent improved over lost spring. Whether Shantz, 5-10 last year, is returning to the form that made him a 24-game winner for Philadelphia in 1952, is.something nobody in the Kansas City camp will venture to say. But Manager Lou Boudreau announced he will give Bobby a chance to show his stuff in an inirasquad game Friday. NOTICE Notice is hereby given that Mrs. H.
