"They'll probably repeat though. * * * "You have to give thai gang of young fellows plenty of credit. They had pep and hustle, and look what they did to the Yankees. The Yaufcs were just too confident -- underestimated . their opponents," Tipton said. * * - * Tipion said the first ihing lie intended to work on next season was his batting average. "I hit only .222 last year--that isn't very potent," Tipton admitted. "I'm ready to go, though, and I know how the pitchers throw them now. Boy, Beazley was the toughest of them all 'to bat against, then came Whit Wyatt o£ the Dodgers." Tipton, purchased by Cincinnati from Kansas City late last season, finally got around to talking about his own club--the Reds. * * * "The Reds should be stronger in comparison to other teams," the former Duke star asserted. "They'll have the best pitching in the league by far, as usual. They had it last year, but poor hilling- kept them down. They finished fourth. "We've got a great bunch ot pitchers in Bucky Walters, Pau Derringer, Johnny Vander Meer and Ray Starr. Gene Thompson and Elmer Biddle are pretty good too. . · "Eddie Joost has been traded to the Boston Braves for Eddie Miller. That trade will help the Reds a lot, I think," Tipton said. Tipton predicted that moving the training camps from the south ·would make little difference.

Harridge disclosed that all clubs in his circuit had been asked to hold up player contracts unlil the director of economic stabilization rules whether baseball comes under the salary freezing order. Frick said National league clubs were withholding contracts for the same reason, with the exception of the New York Giants, who arc proceeding under a regional ruling. . * * ¥ Baseball's advisory c o u n c i l , headed by Commissioner K. M. Landis, has asked for the national ruling on the matter of salaries, and players won't receive their contracts until it is made. Thus, no player can start his annual spring "holdout" for more money until he finds out how much he's being offered in the first place. The 1943 season, the league presidents agreed, will open on Wednesday, April 21, and close Sunday, Oct. 3.

With each team making no more than three trips into Jitiy other city, the officials estimated that 2,400,000 man-miles would be saved in transportation during the regular season. This, together with the mileage saved by training close to home, represents total saving of approximately 5,000,000 man-miles, they said. If anyone thinks the big horse races are nothing but money-getters for the owners, he's got another guess coming. The Kentucky Derby, king ot all races, charges a nominating fee of $25, ;md then it ihe horse starts the rare, it takes another chunk of S50U to get him off at the post. If the horse finishes lower than 4lh, the one who put up the money is just out S525 plus training atul traveling expenses. The winner, though, collects 553,500 put up by Churchill Downs, and the owner of the champion gets all the 5500 entry fees. Any 3 year old coll. filly or gelding in any part of the world is eligible for nomination to the Derby, but a little catch comes in about birthdays. * * ¥ It seems horses ean't always get together and decide for themselves when they were born, so turfmen in the United States decided that all horse birthdays should be on Jan. 1 of the year in which the horse was born. Therefore, although the Derby specifics 3 year olds, actually some of the hoofers are only two. We were wondering what would happen if horsedom decided it wanted to hold one big birthday party every Jan. 1. Thcre'd probably be quite a bit of nagging done. -lihn McDonald, former road secretary of the Brooklyn Dodgers, wrote a letter to J. G.

"The return ot two of our regulars will muke a big difference in our play this weekend and against Lindblom the 29th," said Judge C rims ley, commenting on the return of the boys. The starting lineup will prob- ably see Pec Wee Day and Bruns at the forwards, John Ilolmen at center and Fals Day arid Lloyd Klein manning the guards. ¥ ·+ ··* H e i fi h t advantage Saturday night will be with Mason City, although it will be slight.
