Manager George Gibson, upon ar riving here for the day's engagement with the Chicago White Sox said it might be Bill Swift, Larrj French, Red Lucas, Heinie Meine o Swifty Smith--there aren't many more pitchers on the staff. But the boys "in on the know say Meine will probably be the man because he "has a way" with the Cardinals. WHITE SOX ALBUQUERQUE, N. M.: Mil ton Bocek, a young outfielder wht left the University of Wisconsin to join the Chicago White Sox, is becoming a problem for Manager Lew Fonseca. Bocek needs more seasoning, bul has done so well, particularly at bat that Fonseca is loathe to farm him out and may keep him around after the American league season opens CCBS CHICAGO: The Chicago Cubs went' back to training camp activity today but will offer something a little different for the benefit 01 the fans, starting tomorrow. After today's routine drill a series of four early-season style intra- club games will be played at Wrigley field. BROWNS JACKSONVILLE, Fla.: The St. Louis Browns wind up their south- irn exhibition schedule against the Brooklyn Dodgers, then head for home to open a city series with the Cardinals.

First Baseman Harry Davis. Catcher Gene Desautels and Shortstop Frank Parker have been released, the latter to Beaumont in the Texas league and the other two :o Toledo of the American associa- ion. ATHLETICS-PHILLIES PHILADELPHIA: The Phillies and Athletics turned from the in- :er-city championship warfare today to take another step nearer the season's start.

Confierences Held on Relief Efforts DBS MOINES, April 9. OB--Iowa relief officials and delegations from Adair, Adams, Marshall and Webster counties today effected agreements on work relief programs for toe counties.

And soon we'll growl because the great outdoors is as hot as we kept the house all winter.--Kessenger's Review. (Continued from SporU page) a close game and with three men on ases he threw wild to third and let n the winning run. "Fred walked straight to toe dug- ut, told Kid Elberfeld he was going .ome, and then hied off to pack his jrip. The Detroit scout left in dis- ust. He was unimpressed. "I pleaded with Marberry to stay. He wouldn't listen. Since the club was going to New Orleans, and Fred, was going to Texas I asked him to ride with us. He agreed to that # * . * "Clark Griffith had seen Marberry and liked him. I called him in New Orleans and offered to sell the pitcher. The deal went through. I got $8,500--and then when I told Marberry he said 'No.' "After two hours of arguing, I finally got him to go to Washington with the understanding that I would pay his way back home if he didn't lilte it. "To this day Fred thanka me for what happened." i * X' When Travis Jackson first reported to Little Rock he wore short pants and was only about 15 years old. Colonel Allen sent him back to his home in Waldo, Ark. Two years later he came up again and immediately started making good in a big way. The boy wonder made good from the start, but he had the misfortune to collide with. Leifer, an outfield mate, in' a game at Atlanta. Leifer's eye was taocked out It was weeks before Jackson's interest in baseball could be revived. The amusing part .of- Jackson's career came when he was sold to the Giants. "The deal was made and I told Travis good-bye," Allen recalled. "An hour before train time he called and said his mother wouldn't let him "go to the big city. Said he never disobeyed his mother and didn't want to go, anyway. "There followed considerable arguing in which Travis' uncle helped convince him it was the thing to do. Edgar 'got on the train with him and slipped off at the city limits. I guess Travis today looks back on that incident and laughs." Yes. it must be a lot of fun-thrilling fun--to discover, develop and sell ball players. It always affords the businessman's delight-beating the other fellow to it. Stoefen Wins Texas Play by Routing Cup Veteran HOUSTON, Texas, April 9. W)-Les Stoefen, Los Angeles tennis star, was looked upon by southwestern net experts today as a likely candidate for a singles berth on the United States Davis cup team. The towering Californian collected his third championship in recent weeks here yesterday by routing Wilmer Allison, Austin, a Davis cup veteran, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2, in the singles final of the River Oaks tournament.

CHICAGO, April 9. IrB--Hog- prices dropped 15 to 20 cents today on the. strength of the largest daily supply since February. The early top was $4.15 with the average cost dropping below ?4. The bulk sold from $3.75 to $4. Packers were well supplied with hogs on direct billing and left the support of the market to small killers and shippers. United States packers paid $112,000,000 for hogs in January. February and March, plus an additional sum of $42,000,000 by way of processing taxes. In the first quarter of 1933, packers paid $98,000,000 for hogs. Swelling Receipts. Outside markets also reported] swelling receipts of hogs with the j result that prices declined sharply, ' dropping from 10 to 25 cents. Increased supplies of cattle tended to slow trading. Prices ranged from steady to 25 cents lower. Strictly choice steers and yearlings were steady with others weak to lower. Weighty steers moved into top classifications, topping at $7.65 with best yearlings at $7.60. Other grade and classes ranged down to $5. Sheep Plentiful. Sheep were also plentifully supplied and indications pointed to a market 15 to 25 cents lower. Best fat lambs were held around $9.25, but bids were at 39 and below. The American institute of meat packers said that packers paid $269,000,000 for livestock during the first quarter of the year, an increase of approximately 30 per cent over 1933. The amount paid for cattle and calves was $126,000,000 against $87,000,000.

Market Notes By TICKER TAPE In its weekly review of business and financial conditions the Wall Street Journal says: "Stocks gave an unusual display ot strength without furor last week, pushing ahead in a. quiet but persistent fashion to successive new high day by day. The market was notable also for the breadth of the usual pivotal stocks. Late in the week more than 50 stocks on the big board wer« In T 1933 territory, and few of these were the recognized market leaders. "Several developments were responsible for the slow crystallization of bullish sentiment. Aside from the exceptionally favorable reports from various sections of industry, the most Important- was the growing opposition to the proposed stock exchange control legislation and the pressure for relaxation in the present securities act. BUSINESSMEN PROTEST "The type of opposition against these measures could not be dismissed as coming directly from Wall street. Businessmen from all sections of the country lifted their voices in protest. Probably the most impressive testimony against the measure was that presented by Samuel Untermyer, for years an avowed critic of the stock exchange and a pioneer in the move for governmental control. Mr. Untermyer denounced many features ot the bill, particularly the margin provisions. His contribution undoubtedly did more to weaken the defense than any other individual effort. 'In many respects the bond market eclipsed the share market. The treasury department's refunding of roughly $1,000,000,000 in fourth liberty loan 4U per cent bonds with a long term issue bearing interest of 3 ] A was regarded In a constructive light. The low interest rate and the fact that long term financing was displacing short term borrowings offered proof ot the Improvement in the investment market and testified to the government's confidence in it. "The bond market generally advanced to the best levels of the jear and the volume of, trading expanded materially. STEEX PRICES SHOW INCREASE "Advances In steel prices were quick to follow the increase In wagea which went Into effect April 1, last. As 10 days elapse before the higher quotations become effective, tbe consumers of steel have ample opportunity to place contracts covering their known needs for the coming weeks and months. "One result has been that Incoming business to the steel quarters for second nuar- ter delivery has shown quite a spurt, and this is likely to continue at least until the higher prices are ruling. Order books of the steel companies are showing Increases, even though operations thus far have, not reflected the improved buying. The rate of actlv- Ity in the coming weeks will be governed by specifications against contracts. As users of steel are pot carrying burdensome stocks they are likely to start taking deliveries quite early." JNO. F.CLARK AND CO. MARKET INFORMATION 325 I. 0. O. F. Bldff.

STOCKS RAGGED IN DULL SESSION Metal Issues Stage Mild Rally but Motor Shares Tend Weak. NEW YORK, April 9. UP)--Conflicting trends gave stocks a ragged appearance today. Metal issues staged a mild rally but easiness in the motor shares was a deterrent. Kennecott, U. S. Steel and United Aircraft were a bit improved. International Silver, U. S. Smelting and Cerro De Pasco rose 1 to 2 points. American Telephone, Nash, Hudson, and General Motors were off fractions to about a point. Transfers approximated 800,000 sares. The stock again was in a rather non-commital mood and most traders and investors appeared to be well satisfied with their seats on the side-lines. Transactions were around the dullest levels of the year. The grains were virtually at a stands-till, along with cotton. Rubber improved moderately. U. S. government and prime corporate bonds were in some demand, but secondary loans were mixed. International dollar rates were narrow. SIOCX CITV UVESTOCK. SIOUX OITT, April S. UTl--U.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter MARKET REVIEW. CHICAGO, April 9.-Wheat--The greater part of transactions today was in the way o£ spreading between the varlD-Js deliveries and closing of spreads, but activity was light as the market awaited something definite on political developments. The bulk of the trading in May was within a fraction of 56%c, making the fourth successive session In which this condition Sas obtained. On the whole the undertone was firm and net price changes of no consequence. There was nothing in the news to cause market followers to take a decided stand on either side. Only scattered showers were reported in the spring wheat area over the week-end and there was practically no rain in the winter wheat belt, while temperatures were the highest of the season, although they were starting downward in parts of the" northwest today. The trade, however, paid little attention to weather or to routine news of any kind. The government report giving condition and Indicated winter wheat crop, also the condition of rye and an estimate of the amount of wheat, corn and oats held by fanners as of April 1 will be issued tomorrow at 2 p. m., Chi- capo time. Coarse Grains--Corn and oats were dull with th.3 trade mainly local other than the spreading between the various deliveries ·which was under way. The undertone in corn, however, was steady. Corn stocks at lending points of accumulation decreased 1,368.000 during the past week and are Cl.- 419,000 vs. 32,381,000 last year. Country bookings of com were 40,000 bushels and the bulk bought was said to have been procured at other terminals. The market is still lacking In developments to inspire confidence. Butter--Today's market developed considerable weakness toward the close with dales of standards at 20?ic or off ic from Saturday, Trade irregular, buyers confining their purchases to a requirement basis. Futures were easier. i; KK5 _Spot and futures unexpectedly firmer tfcfs morning. This change WM not based Stock List NEW YORK STOCKS. NEW YORK, April 9. (.]'.'-- Klnitl ((notations.
