Connie Mack, Path to Top Closed, Builds From Little Money Game Stops Philadelphia Vet of Golden Years By GAYLE TALBOT Associated Press Sports Writer LAKE CHARLES, La., (£)-- Rocking placidly on the porch of an ancient hotel here is that kindly old gentleman of baseball, Connie Mack, dreaming his dreams of other years, before millionaires and wealthy merchants took over :he game he loves and left him molding the sack. His eyes as keen and blue as ever under their snowy brows, lie :ells you he is building another .earn, one that in time may recapture the glory of the old Philadelphia Athletics. But it seems that talks with just a shade less assurance than a year ago. I think Connie realizes now that he has wrecked one too many teams, and .hat he'll never live to wave his 'amous scorecard in another world series. Every Avenue Closed Up in his seventies, Connie finds himself without a ball club, and with no real prospects of building another pennant contender. He has 3uilt up no farm system like most of his rivals possess, and he no .onger can reach down and buy up a batch of great players like he once did. Every avenue has been closed to him, and I guess he *nows it. Not, mind 3 r ou, that he will admit it for a minute. Connie insists that the woods are full of fine young players, only waiting to be found. But he's bound to be aware by this time that the big chains-the Yankees, the Cards, the Giants and the others--have the promising young stars o£ the country indexed. Few Major Leaguers Hocking on the same veranda with Connie are a few of the young men he is working with. Among them are perhaps a half-dozen big league ball players. Bob Johnson, Wally Moses and Lou Finney, for instance, form an outfield trio that several American league teams would love to have, especially Detroit. But outside of that the team strictly is eighth place. There's no hope for its pitching, outside of Lynn Nelson and George Caster. The catching is sketchy, and the infield lost it's guiding light when Bill Werber was sole to Cincinnati last week. Connie's only important purchase during the winter was BillLiJIard, a shortstop for whom he shelled out a reported $30,000 to San Francisco.
