DIFFER mm IIMlENl Pilots, Use All Kids Of Melhods To Achieve Their Ends KY RICHAFtn McCANN NBA" Service Sports Writer KE\V YORK -J CpnnW Mack, fatherly, klnuiy, apologetic in his orders; Rogers Hbrnsby, stem, biting, arbitrary. Bill Terry, cool, insolent; Mickey cdchranc. excitable—as jittery as the morning after. H takes Bll types, this business' of inn ringing a ball club. One man will whip a team lionie, another will whoop it In, One will curse and drive, another wilt cajole, another will sls-boom-bah, fight-tcam-fight; to a. championship, nnci still another will laugh his club down the home stretch. Take the 1C major league pilots who have led their teams Inlo the newborn 1937 season... ] Connie Mack fs the most dis- ttncllve of them all, if for no other, reason thnn" that he lins been managing baseball teams for 43 years. The years-have mellowed Mr. Mack. Scholarly,• gentle, soft-voiced, the old gentleman iicver barks out n command. He never tells a player to do something. He always asks him..."Oh, say, there, Keltey," Mr; Mack will snyibn the bench of nn afternoon, "would you please go out to the bull pen and warm up? Cnslci may be needing some help out thfre soon." • • . k Mack Inspires Respect •Mr. Mack (that's how" all of them address him) gets results from his players through respect, not fear., His plajers lo\e him . as n father. And he doesn't like ,to quarrel with them, or quibble over. pay. For Instance, when Wallc Hoyt was released by the New York Yankees and picked up by the Athletics he iejected the Philadelphia contract... "I don't," said Hoyt, "think jou me offering me what I nm worth I could get mote on nny other team." Hoyt had a reply in two days... - "We are giving jou >our outright release," wrote Mr. Mack, "so llmt you will be-able to get what you are worth." Hornsby Is the direct .opposite of Mr. Mack. Hoinsby is the hell-for-leather leadei. He's the boss and if you don't like 11, well stand up and try to do something about It Under the threat of fines-and. now and then, fist*—Hornsby posl- k lively forbids his St. Louis Browns to smoke, or gurgle soft drink:,, or , gobble up .sandwiches in Hie club house befoic or nfler n game. Nor can (hey read newspaper? and talk about anything else but baseball—none of this idle chatter about "Klial happened In the fifth at Pimllco" or "did 5011 see how Sarazen sank them putts?" 'They're here to play baseball; is Mr. Hornsby's rather sound reasoning, "and they can't do It . their minds are on something else I not only want 'em to play I want 'em to talk, sleep, ca baseball." Hornsby lias one wonders will his system; so has Mack. It takes all types... • * * Terry Dislikes WIiOop-i!c-ilo There's Bill Terry., cold, busl ness-like as a banker. He docsn 1 want any whoop-dc-do on or ol he boys just what he thinks about hem; Hnrrls hints at It, handling; very player differently to suit he temperament. Joe McCarthy is quid, nloof; Charley Oilnnn Is gay, palsy-walsy villi his players. Buileigh Grimes is nn umpire- baiter. He's been thrown out. of more parks than One-Eye Con- solly. Bill McKechnle, : on the ilhcr hand, is almost priestly In ils dignity and reserve. Pie. Traynor is fidgety, fluslcry; Ice Cronln and Mickey Cochrane arc fidgety but always, have their wits about them. 1 Both are furious fighters who Imte defeat. Both however, have one bad fault— they jlay favorites.•.. Or maybe both lave changed now—Cochraho has sold Al Simmons, his Philadelphia pal, and .Cronln last fall consented to the release of Al 'chacht, Heinle- Manush, and Jack 3USSC-11, three comrades of his Washington days. Frankio Priscli is hot with .vorry inside, but : cahn and rather .-old outside.' Jimmy Wilson Is -inc of the most regular fellows. He can take a Joke.: Maybe that's why he took the Phillies Job. Have we got 'cm all?...Oh, yes. we clean forgot Steve O'Neill. But, then, knowing\how Cleveland Is wIDr managers, 'likable old Steve'; Hnble not to be (here by Ihe time this ink Is dry.

Bobo, making his first trip here since he assumed charge of the Blytheville squad, inspected the park and expressed himself as well pleased with the layout. He said the Infield was not In shape for practice today and that no batting practice would be : held but Indicated that he would put his charges through their paces Just the same. All members of the squad have been in training for some time and are already far advanced.

Roy Welch, the Canadian Wildcat, and a touehie In his own Ighl, gave Baker a whipping he robably will long remember—us Ml the crowd that jammed the American Legion arena. Baker took '.he first fall with'' ils newly discovered and per- ccted "Norwegian back breaker" after 20 minutes of vicious wresting during which he tried cvery- hing. Trying for the second fall, ie worked Welch Into position 'or it again and applied the lold. Roy caught him squarely on the chin, and in my opinion <nockfd him out then. But to nake the Job secure the Wildcat began to slam Baker. At the conclusion of the fourth slam it was quite evident that Baker was really listening to the birdies sing. But:Welch was not ready to stop. Seven more followed and the ica- son he quit then was that he was too far gone. to pick Baker up again. Baker didn't move. Referee Mike Meroney called for some ice. He didn't respond to that, so Mike nulled him to the edge of the lifted him to his shoulders and hauled hlin off to the dressing rooms. ; . At the end of the ten minute rest period Mike announced that Baker was "quite upset" and "sick .at his stomach," and unable to return. No one doubted It. ' . • Baker has had something like this coming for some time. He has been getting by with little short of murder. Maybe it will teach him a lesson. At least, it. should cause him to respect a "wildcat." Riley, O'Dowdy Star Tex Hiley and- Irish Patrick O'Dowdy. two of the best wrestlers ever to appear here, gave the fans something to shout about in the first match—one of the f/ncst 'exhibition* staged in • li BlyUievllle ring.
