Plenty of Speed. With Bvers and Stoecker on the firing line, there should be plenty of speed available for the pitching corps, since the big boys--standing six-six and six-four in their sock: --have a natural swift ball. Both are righthanders. The veterans of the pitching staff, "Babe" Suter, Schaefer, Dietz and Wolske, with Case, a "reformed" outfielder, ' are mostly righthanders.

By BOB O'FARRELL (Manager, Cincinnati Reds) TAMPA, Fla. March 27. (.-P)--We have tackled a big job of reconstruction with the Reds this year, first with the idea of getting out of last place, and secondly with the well defined purpose of giving Cincinnati a real pennant contender by 1936. I think we have already made progress, at least to the extent of imbuing all the players with better spirit and more confidence, which many of them lost while the Reds were drifting aimlessly. The new ownership means a great deal to basball in general. Before my two- year contract runs out, I hope to justify the responsibility they have given me. Plan Real Fight. We will make a real fight to gain a notch or two in the National league this season because I know we will have more batting punch and I am also confident our pitching will show substantial improvement, even though we will have to rely mainly upon older hands. The addition of fast, hard-hitting young players like Tony Piet, second baseman, and Adam Comorosky, outfielder, both obtained from the Pirates in the trade for Red Lucas, will help the club. Jim Bottomley, Chick Hafey and Ernie (Tnm to Market Pace) Set Playing Time Back, Young Fans Plan to See Game Pirates May Switch Center of Training; Herman Shows Strength. (By The Associated Press) FORT MEYERS, Fla., March 27. --It was "Connie Mack day" in Fort Meyers with Connie Mack more the hero than ever to the school children. When school authorities refused to dismiss classes early so that the youngsters might see.the Philadelphia Athletics play the Cincinnati Rods, someone telegraphed the manager of the A's, then at Braden- town. Mack promptly postponed the game time one hour. RED SOX ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox, overnight guests of the Braves after their 9 to 1 defeat at tribal hands, leave for Clearwater today for their second game with the Newark Bears. Fred Os- tcrmueller will start on the mound tor the Sox. PIRATES LOS ANGELES -- Rumors that the Pittsburgh Pirates may' switch their spring training camp from Paso Robles to a spot near Los Angeles were revived today after Manager George Gibson inspected a baseball lot about 20 miles from the Angel City. Club officials are reported to believe that a park near Los Angeles would be more convenient than the present camp.

By RALPH WHEATLEY. Associated Press Staff Writer. BILOXI, Miss., March 27. C2R--.. The 1934 edition of the Washington Senators will be a virtual reprint of the league pennant winning 1933 edition. Manager Joe Cronin feels that a team that can win the pennant and challenge for the world's championship is capable of repeating and with a bit of luck can win the world's baseball flag this year. Thia youthful manager and his ambitious teammates still feel the lash of defeat in the world's series last year and are eager to get another chance at baseball's highest prize. Hard Losers. Cronin and his Senators are about the hardest losing lot that ever handled balls and bats and they still believe that hard luck and hard luck alone was responsible for their losing the world's title. Strange as it may seem they are not worried over boating everything in the American league this year and are concerned seriously only of beating the challenger in the world's series. They admit a bit more competition this year than last due to the improved condition of rival American league teams but they feel the Senators will be improved enough more to overcome that. Travis Strong Bidder. One major improvement is seen in the work of young Cecil Travis, candidate for third base, which has been held by the brilliant Ossie Bluege. Travis has earned a share in the job and if Bluege should slump he may take it over. In addition to being a fielder of first water, Travis is a natural hitter, never having batted under .340 in his brief baseball career.

And when a tnick-built light duty truck is the product of an organization which has not only concentrated upon nothing but trucks for more than 30 years... hut is also the world's largest builder of commercial vehicles exclusively--the greater durability and economy of that truck become doubly cmphnsized.
