Friday. March 10, 1944 9 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE The Brooklyn Dodgers have sent a resplendent folder to the desks of the nation's sports editors, listing the club's 1944 roster and men in service as well as the coming itinerary during spring training. A gLince shows that the Bums list 30 men us available for the season, including: 12 pitchers, 4 catchers, G infielders and B outfielders. Mainstay of the mound stall will he Whitlow Wyatt, who won 14 games in 1943. Counted on to round out (he veterans arc Ed Head, Rube Melton, Bill I.ohr- man and Les Webber. The infield is promising, and if the sparkplug Billy Herman returns the Bums can field the inner garden with Howie Schultz, last-season acquisition from St. Paul, at first base, Herman at second, Arky Vaughan at either short or third and Gil English, promising rookie from Indianapolis at the spot Vaughan doesn't work. English Hit .322 English batted .322 for the Indians and knocked in 83 runs in the 141 games he played in 1943. Vaughan and Herman, of course, iiccd.no comment. They're vetcr- Joe Baksi 2-1 Favorite Over Savold Friday By JACK CUDDY New York, (U.R--Joe Baksi, the question-mark heavyweight, will prove Friday night whether he actually is the No. 1 civilian "white hope" or just another pugilist when he squares off against veteran Lee Savold for a 10-round bout at Madison Square Garden. Tawny-haired Baksi, b e l t i n g bridegroom from the Pennsylvania coal mines, is a 2-1 favorite io beat the 28 year old blond from Paterson, N. J. Baksi, at 22, is favored because o£ his upset victory 2 weeks ago over young Tami Mauriello of New York in that same Garden ring. Also because of his youth and his weight advantage of more than 10 pounds. Both principals tangled with Mauriello in their last ans who proved plenty of ball they left still have in them. Vaughan batted .305 and Herman .330 Schultz played 99 contests for the Dodgers and hit at a .285 clip. He was one of the loop's better fielding initial sackers, and is counted upon heavily this year. Infield replacements, not counting on the possibility that Lippy Leo himself might step in if needed, are Fred Ankenman and Billy Hart. Ankenman played last season with Montreal, hit only .219. Hart, however, was the star for the New Orleans Pelicons and belted the ball at a .315 pace and drove in 104 runs. With the exception of Luis Olmo, the Porto Rico ball hawk, the Brooklyn outfield will be composed almost entirely oE veteran material. Dixie Walker and Augie Galan at this point promise to grub first-team spots with Olmo, but on hand to fill in are Paul and Lloyd Waner, famous "Big and Little Poison, 71 Frenchy Bordagaray, Johnny Cooney and another New Orleans product, Garden Gil- lemvater. through the ropes; and both had Mauriello on the floor in early rounds. But Baksi took the decision; whereas Savold dropped the Duke last November, f o r Savold it was a repeat failure, because he had met Mauriello once before, and lost the decision after flooring him in the first round. Smart-money boys of Jacobs Beach recall also that Madison Square Garden has been a jinx for Savold. Blond Lee has fought like a champion in the Hinterlands, scoring repeat knockouts over Lem F r a n k l i n and Lou Nova, for example, but almost invariably making a poor showing in the house that Rickard built. Despite the 2-1 odds, Savold is well backed .by supporters who depend upon his greater experience, superior speed and sharper punching. Although Baksi is rugged, they know that he is a slow target--awkward afoot--and therefore made to order for the sharpshooter from Paterson, N. J. They promise that Lee will break Baksi's nose with his sharp uppercuts--as he did with Billy Conn, Harry Bobo. Franklin, Nova, and Little Cedar Victorious in District Meet New Hampton--Little Cedar defeated Harpers Ferry here Thursday, 34-33, in the opening of the d i s t r i c t basketball tournament. The Little Cedar team came from behind for their victory. Sparked by Norman McPhail. who scored 20 points, the Mitchell county team was trailing 14-8 at the end of the first period and 23-21 at halftinie. Harold Brazell, Shamrock forward, s c o r e d 12 points for the losers. Harpers Ferry had won 23 games and lost one, previous to Thursday night white Little Cedar, coached by Marion Moore, former Osoge coach, won 20 and lost 3. Little Cedar missed 9 free throws and Harper's ferry, 5. Russell McPhaU, Little Cedar forward, was the only player to leave the tournament with 5 personal fouls.

But the Baksi backers recall that Savold is a bit fragile--that he does not bounce back from heavy punishment; and they know that the slugging Slav from Kulpmont. Pa., can dish it out. Baksi will scale about 210 to Savold's 200. A crowd of 13,000 and a of 545,000 is expected. ;ate Power There Power is abundant among these men if yon base your reasoning on 1043 performances. Walker hit .302, Olmo .303 and Galan .287. Gillenwater slammed the pill at .333 and may beat one of the old- timers out of a garden spot. Paul Wancr played 82 games for the Flatbush aggregation and hit .311. Lloyd was not active in major league circles during the 1943 campaign, and is counted upon for reserve duties in 1944. Cooney is an ancient player, but despite his 42 years is still alert. Bordagaray played iu 89 games for Brooklyn last year, knocked in 19 runs and hit .302. If Mickey Owen returns to the backstopping department, the Clan Flatbush is well set here. Among the best receivers in the league, SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON New York, (/P)--Some Denver,' Colo., boys in a naval unit in the south Pacific have decided they want to sponsor teams in the "Old Timers" baseball association this year and will have a league nil their own, with teams named after the various ships. . . . All they'll get out of it will be weekly reports from Jack Carbcrry, Denver Post sports editor and the old timer behind the "Old Timers," but it gives some idea of how a baseball idea can take hold iC it Is given a chance. . . . The men planning for baseball's future would do well to take a second glance at this setup. A Quick Look. . . . The "Old Timers" are some 500 men who once played on uniformed baseball teams and who are willing to put up a buck apiece to foster baseball competition among boys from 11 to 17 years old. . . .

Boxscore: 14} JACK HAND New York, W)--With Infielder Billy Herman sailing away to join the navy and Pitcher Ed Head inarching off in a soldier suit, the B r o o k l y n Dodgers' National league pennant aspirations have suffered a severe relapse almost on the eve of their first spring training drills.
