THREE CLUBS ON ROSTER FAIL TO WIN HALF TESTS Gigantic Scores, Rise of Yankees Highlight Late Training Items By JUDSON BAItEY Associated Press Sporls Writer NEW YORK, (/Pi-The major league baseball teams are squeezing out some juicy percentages in then- Grapefruit stand since starting the homeward shuffle against an assortment of minor league stooges. The frotb is so thick, in fact, that only three of the 16 fugitives from the big top have failed to win half or more of their games. This makes it possible for followers of all except the Cleveland Indians, Philadelphia Phils and Boston Bees to point with pride to startling strides of their heroes. Giants, Cards on Top The New York Giants, who Played just three games and won them all during the week, replaced the St. Louis Browns at the top of the southern standings with a record of 10 games won and two lost, but the best mark for the full schedule was the six games won and one lost by the St. Louis Cardinals. These won and lost records aren't likely to rale any closer inspection than the batting averages during this period, however. The New York Yankees, who a few days ago were being joshed about their world championship in showing a mere .SCO average in eight games now rank third in the citrus standing with 14 victories against six defeats. Yet their performance against major league opponents is still only seven wins and six losses for a .538 figure Hit 'Em and Run! Such scores as the Cardinals' ·'2 to 0 shutout of Columbus, Ga Sunday, the Boston Red Sox' trampling to Louisville, 24 to 2, the Yankees' stampede, of Tallahassee, 22 to 3, have subjected the minor league entertainment to scorn.

"Each division of the American team should be as strong or stronger than it ivas in Berlin." Peppe said, "but probably we'll have to reiy on the divers once more to clinch the victory." Peppe praised his sta.v of the one and three-meter boards,'Al Patnik, who snatched both crowns in the 1939 meet for the third straight year--(he onlj- man in history to turn that trick. "Patnik is undoubtedly the greatest springboard diver that ever lived," Peppe said. "He has everything, and just doesn't make mistakes. He and Earl Clark of Ohio State and Jim Cooke of Yale look like the boys who should represent America in diving." Peppe predicted practically the entire Olympic team would be picked from the 193D A A U contsstants. Ohio State won the 1939 A. A U. team title with 26 points, the Now'York. A. C. finishing second with 23. The Bucks scored in nine of the 10 events, but won only two first places--Patnik turning those m at the diving competitions, in which Ohio garnered 15 of its 28 points.

He an- nounced before the "Masters" tournament began last Friday that he would win it, so nobody was much surprised when he shot his clinching 69 late Sunday afternoon to nose out Sammy Snead who had posted a fine 280 a couple of hours before. His successive rounds were 72-68-70-69, and his total'beat by three strokes the tournament record. 3 O $ A ff alicr.v of 10,000 followed Guldahl and Lawson Little on the tins! round. When he came to the turn, Guldahl learned Snead's score, and knew he needed a 34 on the back nine to tie. So he shot a 33 without apparently exerting himself. Little, who was exactly level with Guldahl in total strokes at the turn, delivered a fine 70 to win up in a tie with Billie Burke for third money, each with ·£o2.

INSURANCE BONDS' " CUBS LOOK OVER EXPENSE LIST ON WINTER'S TRADE Dick Bai-tell May Be Bigger Drain on Bank Than Injured Dizzy By STEVE SMDEK United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO, U.R -- The Chicago Lubs X-ray department, which labored overtime last summer to salvage seven National league victories from the ailing arm of Dizzy Dean, turned Monday to the mysterious misery of Shortstop Dick Bartcll, who may become a more expensive invalid than Diz, him- Barfcll has been ordered home to undergo examination by Hie local medical corps for treatment of the rheumatism or arthritis or whatever it is (hat shoots those pains throu s h his left ankle. Since the Cubs wound up their exercises on Catalina Island, Bartell has been utterly useless to the club. His painful hobbling on the practice field finally led Manager Gabby Hartnett to send him back to the home office for treatment. Two Mystery Ailments The ailment oE the former New York Giant is as much of a mystery as the so-called dead arm of Dean, the former St. Louis Cardinal It apparently hops f ro m joint to joint. Bartell was laid up last summer with pains in his throwing arm similar to the ankle complaint. If Bartell is unable to fill in at shortstop during a major portion of the campaign, the 'iv'a- tional leaffuc champions will be on the spot. Rookie Steve Mesner and the Veteran Woody English are risky investments for a regular infield assignment, especially since the Lubs are chance-taking with Phil Cavarrelta and Hip Russell on tirst base. Jimmy (Rip) Collins howeverf-still is on 'call r at iSs Angeles. Collins led all National league iirst basemen in fielding last season. Cub Fans Snorting?
