~ M MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 Â· 1937 NINE f! MASON CITY ROUTS FORT DODGE CAGERS WATCH SOX FOR NEXT SEASON IN DRIVE FOR FLAG That's Advice of Chicago Club's Owner in Off Season Interview. By EARL HILLIGAN CHICAGO, -- The Chicago 1 White Sox, in whom thousands of riever-say-die fans have been investing their loyalty for many gloomy seasons, are getting ready to pay off next summer. Lou Comiskey, genial White Sox owner, confidently predicted'Sat- urday that, barring too many bad breaks through injuries or illness, his club will win the American Jcagxie pennant--."Yankees or no Yankees." "And what's more," he said, "we'll lead the race from start to finish." "We made a fine showing last season, when we were badly crippled through most of the drive. Monte Stration was out for an appendicitis operation. lUayers Were Hurt. "Luke Appling was hurt, as were Rip Radcliff. and several others. We finished just about in a tie for second place and were whipping the Yankees at the end of the season, and we'll whip them again next season." Comiskey made it clear he isn't going to let anything interfere with his plans to get the Sox away to a flying start. Â· "Holdouts?" he grinned. "1 haven't any right now, regardless of the talk going around. Appling always puts off signing a contract. Hadclitf and Jackie Hayes are just talking things over. Zeke Bonura may develop into a holdout. He's a swell fellow, but just doesn't know what he wants. But we'll be ready. Sox Have rllcluntr. "I realize the Yankees are fine nlub, with a powerful punch. But they haven't our pitching staff and that will tell the story- Win, lose or draw, the Sox always have been loyally supported for many years. The old man (the late Charles A. "the Old Homan" Comiskey) spent a lot of money trying to give the fans a real team. The Sox always have been scrappy, and we'll be that'way again next summer. "There's a lot of grief owning a ball club, but a pennant next surnmer will amply repay not only the fans but myself and my whole 'Â·' 'organization."
