RAILROAD DICTATOR Appointment of Snpmno Ruler Deemed Imminent. Clilcjigo, . March 24. (AP)—The ClUcaRo Tribune said today it was rciwrted that the appointment of a dictator with full power to control the railroads, was imminent. The dictatorship possibility, the newspaper said, was presented yesterday at a meeting of the association of railway executives by a committee which recently conferred with President Roosevelt and other government officials at Washington. The committee, composed of P. E. Williamson, president of the New York Central, Carl Gray, president of the Union Pacific and J. J, Pelley, president of the New York, New Haven and Hartford, presented to the association's advisory board, the views of the president, thc Tribune said. Later the three rail officials left for Washington empowered by a resolution adopted by the association, to represent the membership at further conferences with tlie president. The exeoutlyes were told that President Rodsevelt feels the railroads can best help themselves by stopping the waste of money by e'lminatlngi wasteful competition, the Tribune said.

Tom Yawkey and Eddie Collins realize It was five years before even the famous Ruppert bankroll achieved notable results with the Yankees. They probably will be delighted If the club climbs out of the cellar this year, a stunt that Alana- ger Marty McManus thinks he can accomplish, althou^ it has been done only twicef in the last 11 years. Marty refrains frijin any boasts or predictions. His own managerial experience is Umlted. He has: had little to work with so far. Since last season, the Sox acquisitions have consisted of one well-regarded minor league pitcher, Walter Brown from Montreal, and an assortment of talent obtained in a deal with the White Sox. Substantial shifts have been made In both the Infield and outfield imder the "new deal." Good at Bat The prospective starting lineup Is a bit heavyfnoted but It will pack enough batting dynamite to give the pitching- defense plenty of scoring assistance. Dale Alexander, the American league hitting champion. Urban Hodapp. Smead JoUey. and Bob Foth6rgill all carry a long- range wallop hi thehr bats. The return to good: health and condition of Henry Johnooo, former Yankee right-hander who was once- a hoodoo for the Athletics, and Johnny Welch, recalled from Newark last year, promise better things on the mound for the Red Sox. Mc* ManuB counts on rounding out- a workable staff with Brown, the diminutive newcomer; Bob KUnc, 220-pound slnkor-ball expert; and Ivy-Paul Andrews, who turned In sensational work lost season after being obtained from the Yankees. In addition to Bob (Lefty) Weiland and Gordon (Dusty) Rhodes, thc pitching possibilities Include two promising novices. One Is Lefty Alien Jones, from thc: ynlvcrsity of Mississtppl, and the other is Justin McLaughlin, also a portsider, recalled from Scranton. Jolley an Experiment. The catching will bo better this year if Johnny Oooch and Mervyn Shea make good their comeback attempts. The attempted conversion of Jolley from the oiitfleld to a post behind the bat still is an experiment. Alexander is no Hal Chase at first, but a hard worker and a reat slugger. Hodapp has the call at second base. Gregory Mulleavy's hlt- thig may give him an edgfe over "Rabbit" Warstler at short.- Manager McManus has a rival for the third base job in Barney Priberg, formerly of the Phillies. Camp followers at Sarasota look for a starting combination of Roy Johnson. Bob Seeds, and Johnny Watwood in the outfield, with Poth- erglll, Tom Oliver, and Tom Winsett, who hit .357 with Buffalo last year, as alternates. THE VooNtiEsT MANAGER.

When he turns in his suits he gets back the $30. The club does not! furnish shoes. But it provides proper board and lodging dnd traveling expenses when on f|ie road. And, oh, yes, In case ot dispute between the pUyer and the club, the difference is to be referred to the commissioner of baseball, his decision to bet accepted as the last word.
