DECQRAH.--.Finding replacements for missing veterans is the problem right now at Luther college, as Coach S. S. Regue builds the Norse baseball team for its spring season. In the- infield, place's are left open by the graduation o£ Rick- ansrud, regular first . baseman; Grangaard's leaving to join the Milwaukee Brewers and Bu'rmeis- ter's failure to .return to school. Paul. Gbssmah, Farmersburg, and Les Forde, Decorah, are available for third and second base,, respectively. The outfield suffered the loss of all of last year's regulars, among them being Lybeck, Sorenspn, Bergan and Higgs. The pitching department includes one letterm an, Lute Olson, veteran righthander. Leland. Harris, Thornton, looks like a sure starter. Oilier pitching prospects include James Stoddard, Kenyon, Minn.; Myron Anderson, Minneapolis; Nordeen' Olson, Decorah, and Irvalle Erickson, De Forest, Wis.' · , . The most likable looking infield prospects among the new men include Lloyd Larson, Rad cliff e; Dick Skale, Riverside, 111. and Virgil Leslie, Stoughton, Wis. Others battling for · berths are: Glen Greenback, . Parma, Colo.; Sylan Mickelson, Clarkfield, Minn.; Borg Holen, Holand; Jerald Isenberger, Decorah and Lester Gesell, Klma. Minnard Hanson, Spring Valley, Wis.; Joedy Boyett, Kensett; Har Ian McKinney, Lansing, and Rober Norem, Harmony, Minn., are leading candidates for the outfield.

"Then, there's another thing . . , I understand that next year wherever the high school play; basketball, the second team games are going to follow the main game . . . and I'm all for that.

Trout Gets Long Job Against Dippy Squac LAKELAND, Fla., (#)--Pau (Dizzy) . Trout, Detroit rookit righthander who held the Boston Red Sox hitless in a three-inning trick Sunday, has a more extensive chance to prove his worth again. Manager Mickey Cochram assigned him to hurl the first fivi innings against Brooklyn. Catcher Wanted for Brooklyn Ball Team · LAKELAND, Fla., (/F)-- Bur leigh Grimes has hung the "catch er wanted" sign on the Brooklyn clubhouse. He has soured on Bil Baker,- Yankee farmhand from Newark, as Babe Phelps' assist ant, but has not given up hope o securing a receiver before the sea son opens. BROOKLYN HAS SLIM CHANCES Dodgers Will Be Lucky, If They Dodge Berth'Way Down in Standing. (NOTE: This is another of a series on major league pennant prospects.) By PAUL MICKELSON CLEARWATER, Fla., (/P--It .ooks like Brooklyn-will be stuck n the mud of the second division for the sixteenth time in 17 years. Although Burleigh Grimes, successor to the charitable Casey Stengel as helmsman oE the Flatbush crew, has improved the club Dn paper with two shrewd deals, the team rates only an outside chance to land in the upper bracket when the line forms at the payoff window late in September. Led by Van Lingle Mungo, the fireball ace, the Dodgers should have one of the strongest pitching staffs in the majors, but the res( of the lineup is disjointed and studded with question marks Punch and better fielding shape as the two greatest shortcomings. "We've got a flock of ifs on : the club," says Grimes, "But I'll'hustle in at least 10 more games on the right side of the won and lost column anyway. We've got a good chance to cause a lot of trouble and if all the boys come through there's no telling what he might do." "Ifs" Turn to "Didn'ts." But that's been the trouble with Brooklyn all these lean years. The "ifs" turn to "didn'ts" and the club finds itself happy that the season ends sometime instead of keeping right on through the winter. For pitching, however, the Flatbush boys shouldn't have any worries, except for errors behind the fine hurling. Van Mungo is ful of that college try this year and predicts he'll win 25 game's. With him as probable starting regulars on the mound will be Fred Frankhouse, a 30 year old veteran capable of getting very hot or cold; Luke Hamlin, former Detroit Tiger, Kalph Birkofer, obtained rom Pittsburgh to give the team a- good southpaw, and Al Butcher, ^usky 25 year old right hander vho Mungo predicts will win 20 /ictories in 1937. Grimes is confident Butcher has ae pitching goods. He won six nd lost six last season and came o camp this spring with more peed than ever. · k Four on Relief. Bringing up the rear, to be used robably for spot and relief pitch- ng, are Roy Henshaw, ex-Chicago Cub; George Jeffcoat, the veteran Vatson Clark and possibly Wally Signer, 21 year. old rookie from Allentpwn, Pa., who has been [Uite impressive in camp. The infield should be an improvement over last year with Juddy Hassett back on first; Cookie LaVagetto, famed . Pittsburg Pirate bench warmer, at second and -Jersey Joe Stripp at his old third base stand.' ' The shortstop job is open to either Woody English, another bench warmer from the Cubs, or Tony Malinosky of Louisville with English the. probable winner. "Fatty" Phelps plans to do most of the catching though Randy Moore has been switched from the outfield for. a try behind the plate Grimes has a hunch that Randy who has done some, catching, wil be just what he needs for a reserve duty as backstop. Rookie May Stick. Elmer Klumpp, rookie from Elmira, has been hitting well and may fool everyone .by sticking with the club. Burleigh himself is fidgety abou the outfield, usually the funnies; trio of the old flatbush follies He's got outfielders galore on the lot but it's going to be rough picking out a trio that can field and hit. Right now, the prevalen guess of the starting outer garden is Ed Wilson, who showed up wel late last season in right; Johnny Cponey is centerfield because o" his fine fielding and Johnny Winsett in left. Heinle Manush, veteran star o the American league, may be usec exclusively for pinch hitting a; Grimes likes to have a cut and slici guy like him around.' .Gil Brad' of Louisville, a sprained ankh victim these days, and Eddie Morgan of Columbus compose the res of the leading candidates. Brooklyn is known as the Dodgers, but from a setup like that they'll have a tough time dodging second division. Prize Rookie Set to .

"Lloyds of London" MOVIE- PARADE BY 0. B. K. 'CLAKENCE" COMING TO 3ECIL, PALACE FRIDAY Booth Tarkington's "Clarence" will play at both the Palace and Cecil theaters Friday. Cast as "Clarence" is Roscoe Karns while in other roles are cast Eleanore Whitney, Johnny Downs, Eugene Pallette, Spring Byingtbn and Charlotte YVynters. "Clarence" is a comedy story o£ ife in the great American home. * * * PALACE REVIEW Just another mystery story . . . but a new locale (college faculty) and a new and interesting type of detective in the person of Edmund Lowe. That's "tinder Cover of-Night," top half of the double bill now-showing at the Palace. The suave and ever interesting Edmund Lowe contributes much clever dialog as he returns to' his alma mater in time to face the baffling mystery of repeated murder among faculty members. The picture affords followers of Sportswriter Grantland Rice to become further and more favorably acquainted with his daughter, Florence, who scores in the leading feminine role. Nat Fendleton, as usual, doesn't say much, but what he says counts. A breezy little entertainment number is the" other half of the Palace double feature, "Racing Lady," in which Ann Dvorak, in the role of stable trainer, is as sweet and comely as you've ever found her. The plot, centering around "her, a horse, her dad (Harry Carey) and her romance (Smith Ballew), is delightfully wholesome . . . a fine drama of the turf with the Santa Anita track as the setting. * * * Booked at Clear Lake's Lake theater Friday and Saturday are "Lawless Land," which stars Johnny Mack Brown in a western, and "Murder Men," .newspaper story starring Spencer Tracy. « * * Ralph. Bellamy, Marian Marsh and Isabel Jewell are featured in "The Man Who Lived Twice," the story of a killer who by means of an operation becomes a noted physician. Also on the program which begins at the State Friday is the western "Conflict," featuring J o h n Wayne. BELANSKI RITES ARE CONDUCTED ormer Nora Springs and Mason City Resident Is'Buried.
