HOW TO MAKE A CHAIR MORE COMFORTABLE MILDNfSS PLUS CHARACTER CLUB OKAY, JUST NOT IN .GLASS OF REST OF LEAGUE Cuban Ballplayers to Fill Washington List as Season Begins By GAYLE TALBOT Associated Press Sports Writer ORLANDO, Fla., (IF)--For a man who is hip deep in Cuban ball players and short on big league pitchers, Bucky Harris manages to remain surprisingly calm and somehow hopeful that his Washington Senators won't be as bad as they look. In faef, ]j c lias about convinced himself that it isn't such a bail team at all, but only slightly outclassed by the terrific opposition it has to contend with in the American league these days. His attitude simply is: "How are you going to break into the first division over outfits like the Yankees, Boston, Cleveland and Detroit?" Happy Plun All Around. Thai, it seems to me, is a most sensible attitude, and one calculated to keep the old "boy manager" looking young. Bucky knew when he went back to Washington after spells at Detroit and Boston that Clark Griffith still lived in the impression that championship clubs could be founded on faith, hope and a reputation foe sagacity. So he would have only himself to blame if he began complaining: about being handed 3 lap-full of Cuban stars and under-done rookies from the tall and uncut to work with each spring. He plays the same, and lets (he club president give out four interviews lo his one, an arrangement that has proved a happy one all around. "Let's put it this way," Buclcy smiled. "If I can develop three or four great young, pitchers from this gang of youngsters, we might get up in the fight. I've got three nice pitchers to begin with in Joe Krakauskas, Dutch Leonard and Ken Chase." Rookie--No Pitch Two of the rookie mound hopes are Cubans, Roberto Ortiz and Rene Monteagudo. Ortiz is under the slight handicap of never having attempted to pitch before but President Griffith is confident they can straighten that out. Still 'another product ot the sunny isle is Roberto EsCalclIo who is modeled something along the lines of Tony Galento, and appears destined to open the season in left field. He rattled the fences for a .386 average with Charlotte last season. One of the main curses of the Senators, outside those already listed is that most of ihem bat left-handed, including the entire infield now that Zeke Bonura has gone to the Giants. Jimmy Wasdell is slated to replace Zeke on first, and Harris is certain he will be an improvement even if he doesn't hit a lick. "Won't Go Nuts" "At least I won't go nuts every time somebody slaps a grounder down at him," he said. "Maybe Bill Terry can make a first baseman out of Zeke. If he does I'll be the first man to admit he's a better man than I am." The club has three valuable hard-hitiimj players in the other infield spots: John Lewis at third, Buddy Meyer at second and Cecil Travis on short. There is some talk or Travis being shifted over to first base and .Charley Gelbert replacing him at short, but that is likely to happen only in the event AVas- dell fails completely at bat. Sam West and George Case round out a good, substantial outfield, with Taft Wright a slugging alternate. The club has plenty of hitting right down the line to its veteran catcher, Rick Fen-ell but it still takes pitching to make the mare go. Won't Be Too Bad Barrel Hoops, Barn Floor Built Newkirk Cage Team Mason City Fpes^Sac^City Strong State Tournament Bidders * * * By CLIFF HARRIS (Special Correspondent) SIOUX CITY-- Look out for those District 8 champions! Such is the chant over the state %sw»-as? TM«SKM tournament at Orange City Saturday night soon realized the Indians were not a one-man team In Bob Lauterbach Coach Brandes has one of the smoothest forwards e- ing prepared for the state tournament in Des Moines this week. A club that can leave Sibley and Sioux City Central floundering like Sac City aid and a team that can breeze through a string O f strong Class B outfits like Newkirk difl must be reckoned with in state competition. Coach Martin Brandes' Indians are a colorful lot-- particularly because of the attention showered upon Slim Jim Thynne, the center who pitches baskets like a veteran. But, actually, he's just one important cog in a well balanced machine. Fans attending the finals of the . , forward, is an indispensable member of the championship combination as are Ivan Mason and Sherill Williams, the guards. Sac City, in its 15th year under Coach Brandes, has won 23 of 24 games, losing only to Davenport on the letter's court. Earlier in the season Sac City beat the Blue Devils at Sac City. Four of the men on the first team are seniors. Sherill Williams is the junior. The trip to the state meet will be the first in the history of Sac- City high school basketball, Coach Brandes said.

Nineteen of the 27 reported for basketball practice, but--and here is the most amazing step in the team's incredible rise to fame--there wasn't a gym. The boys rigged up a pair of hoops in a barn, wheeled the /arm machinery off to the side and started the almost impossible task of building a basketball team. U was not so hard, however, for the boys had played together /rom the time they were old enough to lift a basketball and they did have teamwork. In the midst of the winter, when the temperature was near zero, the , workouts were limited because farm duties and school work made it impossible to drive to another town more than once or twice a week. When the actual season rolled around, Newkirk began to shape up as a strong team. It knocktrl off every opponent in regularly scheduled games. A couple of the practice games didn't turn out so well, bul not all the regulars were there. Now that they have won the Class B divisions of the sectional and district tournaments, the Newkirk cagers are eagerly looking forward to their first trip to a state meet.

The Vande Bergs are twins. Last year the same five compiled an impressive string of victories, winning 16 of 18 during the season, but lost to Alvord in the finals of the sectional tournament.
