Trout joined the Tiger squad three days ago and has pitched batting practice since his arrival. "I swear he's faster now than he was three years ago," catcher Prank House said. "He has got as much stuff as a lot of the guys we've got." Trout says he's willing to go with anyone who'll have him '. "I talked to-Charley Grimm the other day when Milwaukee played in Lakeland," he said. "And after I find out how I stand with Detroit; I figure I'll talk to both Blr- dle Tebbetts and Fred Hutchinson. Both Cincinnati and St. Louis are looking for' pitching help " terday, pitching two innings as the Phils trounced Washington 7-1. He gave up two hits and a run. Lanler's big league career has an elevator. It was "up" when he won 15 games in 1943 and 17 in 1944 for the St. Louis Cards. It was static when he jumped to the Mexican League in 1946 and was; banned from the 'majors until reinstated three years later. And it hit rock bottom when he was released by the St. Louis Browns 'in July 1953. Operated Restaurant In 1954, he pitched for St. Petersburg of the Florida International League and Beaumont of the Texas loop. He operated his restaurant business In St. Pete last year, then got hungry for baseball again and induced the Phils to let him show his wares in the Grapefruit League.

The Cincinnati 'Redlegs rapped out 13 hits to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-3 behind the effective pitching of Rudy Mlnarcln and Tom Acker. The Kansas City A's rallied for three runs in the ninth, two oh Harry Simpson's homer, to edge the Milwaukee Braves 7-5. The St. Louis Cards snapped the five-game winning streak of the New York Yankees 3-2 on an errors by Yankee pitcher Johnn Kucks.

Aih St. BlyHieville, Ark. Phone 2-2007 ARKANSAS OUTDOORS A ' ** Arkansas Same frfish Commission LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has received a request from Colonel Joe R. Williams, Commanding Officer of the Little Rock Air Force Base, for a recreational area on Lake Conway for use by Air Force personnel. Lt. L. G. McMillian, Special Service Officer for the Air Base, and Colonel John E. Buxton, Commission Engineer, visited the Lake Conway area and tentatively selected a site which the Commission is offering to lease to the Air Force. Santee -Might Sit Out Saturday's Chi Run The site selected is a strip 700 feet wide extending north from the Mayflower Olmstead Road to the lake.. This site is a small part of the 4000 acre tract that the Com-: mission received from the War Assets Administration after the close of Camp Robinson. The Commission is agreeing to help clear a boat lane from the water's edge to Lane No. 5 so the Air Force personnel will have adequate access to the main part of the lake. If the area is accepted by the Air Base the Air Force person-„ nel will develop the site in such a way that will fill their own special need. The site contains an old field which probably will be used for soft ball and other fames. Air Force - personnel will be required to have a resident fishing license before they will be permitted to fish at Lake Conway or in any other waters in the state, The amount of land offered to the Air Force is adequate for their need and at the 'same time will not interfere with the previously announced Commission's plan to develop the main portion of this 4000 acre tract for quail and other upland game. The Commission welcomes this, opportunity to help the Air Force personnel feel at home and enjoy their.tour of duty while serving in our state. « . * * THE TROUT SEASON will open April 1 and remain open through November 30. The waters of White River from Bull Shoals Dam to Calico Rock, and Norf ork River from Norfork Dam to mouth of said river, have been heavily stocked with trout and should furnish excellent sport during the coming season. The above waters have been designated as trout waters and artificial bait may be used there while fishing: for trout only, from April 1 to May 15th, inclusive. ,Of course, if a Black Bass should be taken during this period it must be released immediately. Also for the period April 1 through May 15, ca--"!t fish within 100 yards below a dam. -Two-Arkansas Grid Contests on TV By ED CORRIGAN NEW YORK (AP) — It's a brand new ball game, as they say.
