TIGERS' MASTER OFFERS UNUSUAL LINE OF ORATORY Bucky Harris Says His Team Will End Up At or Near Top Position. By RUSSELL ,1. NEWLAND SAN FRANCISCO, March 16. «P) --Detroit's Tigers are not trying to "·'- the American league pennant win before the season starts, but Manager Bucky Harris wants the baseball world to know that his team will have to be considered when it comes to exchange base hits for springtime oratory. The 34-year-old whip of the Tigers, whose teams finished sixth and fifth respectively since ho took over the reins in 1D29, believes he has assembled a squad that will end up where the fruit grows sweetest --at or near the top. Bucky, who struts his stuff like a gamecock and rules his roost with the efficiency, of a backwoods schoolmaster, saya his squad will bob up around the opening- of the season with a fighting spirit second to none. "The club is stronger all 'round than last year," he said. "Our infield has plenty of utility strength with Joe Dugan, Marvin Owen and Marty Kocnigr. Marty McManus is favoring his knee, which was operated upon, and if he isn't ready, Dugan will handle third base nicely. Young Owen, I think, is the best prospect I have seen in seven or eight seasons. Bill Akers made such a fine showing at shortstop last season, he figures to start there again. "If Charley Gehringer isn't the best second baseman in the league, then my name isn't Harris. Big Dale Alexander will do at first base until a better man comes along. 10MPT CORA COAL .t $7.00 PHONE per ton cash 888 Fireside Fuel Co.
