' MCCARTHY READY INFIELDERS FOR WHITE SOX ARE WEAK IN HITTING Associated Preaa Photo Manager Joe McCarthy of the Now York Yanks is ready for the 1931 season.

CB^-A -wobbly, :weak-HItt!ng infield is facing rotund Donie Bush as he starts his secotid foreman of the Chicago White Sox.

First -base is the big question mark. The lone candidate is Ray RatcUff, a youngster who thumped the ball for .369 to lead the Southeastern league last season. Chalmer Cissell, a jack-of-all trades last year, will get tne call at second, and Bush hopes his .271 hitting- will pick up. Lou Appling, the ex-collegian 'who, finished well last year, will start at short. Willie Kamm looks like a fixture at third altio he hit only .269 last season. Bush's particular pride and joy is his outfield. In Carl Reynolds and Smead Jolly, veterans, and Melvin Simons/ the .371 clouter oDtain«;d from Louisville in a recent trade .the Sox have three gardeners who walloped the ball for a combined . average ol .347 last season. Support-' ing the trio will be Watwood--barring his transfer to first-and the heavy hitting Hob Fothergill for pinch hitting duties. Mound Corps Ranks High. Ted Lyons, who won 22 games in 1930, the White Sox mound corps ranks as the second or third . best in the American league. Alfonse Thomas, hampered by an injured arm last year, shoulc be good for 15 or more victories Harold McKain, Pat Caraway, Urban "Red" Faber abd Garland Braxton round out the list of veterans Benny Tate, the veteran obtained from Washington-last year, and a pair of International league stars, Walter "Butch"'Henline and Frank Grube, compose a formidable catching staff.

UP^-Frbm a comparatively green squad Coach L. P. Stevens has built a basketball team comparable to that wbich. represented the Britt high school in the state tournament at Des Moines last year. In the present season the team ,won 12 games and lost only six. The quintet piled up 353 points in the 18 g-ames .played while its opponents annexed only 288. Builds Around Regulars Coach Stevens built a workable combination around Murray Under- Jcoffler and Arthur · Bai;tik, regulars on last year's team, at the opening of the season. Willie Bartik,' Rollln Brooks and Luvon Cook reserves on the 1920-30 team, got the call for regular berths on this year's quintet. . ' " TJnderkoffler delivered up to expectations, 'proving an outstanding player on defense 'and a constant scoring| threat in taking the ball down the floor. W. Bartik's basket eye showed steady improvement Jn the closing games on the schedule and he frequently "succeeded in hitting: the hopp from difficult angles. A. Bartik was unable to get gom-* and saw service in only about half of the games. Rollin Brooks replaced him'at center and showed a determination to work hard -in overcoming- his handicap of jack of experience. . Swan Sets a Mark ' Laurels as the best'ball handler on the squad went to Maurice Swan who, despite lack of stature played a fine brand of defensive game when called into the. lineup. Other reserve players included Donald llcCormick, Joe McGurk, Donald Wilson and Keith Van Winkle. Lack of confidence because of inexperience was believed by Coach Stevens to be the outstanding weakness of his team. Scores In the games played this season were: · Britt 18, Kanawha 16; Britt IS Crystal.
