Dix. "Imt they all. loo)-- nlike to me. 1 just real' back and rumip that thing through there with something on it. "That puts the problem up tr the hitter." Hranch Kiekey had the same Idea in selling ball players long before he peddled Dean and his lame arm to the Chicago Cubs for $185,000 and three useful hands, one of them Curt Davis, who opened the 1941 world series for the Brooklyns. There isn't a truer baseball saying than 'They never die on the Cardinals." Kiekey usually knows, of cours-> but when he is not positive his sound theory is never to wait to be certain whether a high-salaried Red Hird has had an off-year H 01* is on the way down. Unless' they're indispensable and in full stride—and especially when ihey are susceptible to injury — the llickey system is to sell 'em while tber's a. market. No other appraiser of ivory can tind vii many things wronir with an athlete, exclusive of playing faults. Like Kd Harrow of the Yankees, llickey is a stickler for conduct off the field, too. Next to Yankees, Cardinals meet the stiff- i'st person requirements. ! Hut the main point h> that Kick- I oy lets someone else find out whet• her a Cardinal is slipping. "Which briiiKs us around to 'johnny Mize, who already has fol- I lowed in 'the Kiekey sales' pattern | by bobbing up with a bum throwing shoulder.

It is proflnubly true 13.R. doesn't know whether MjfzeV reduction in home run power, from 43 to 17. was just one of those things' in the life of a ball player or the beginning of the end. So Branch Kiekey took the $50,000 and let the New York Giants worry a'bout Johnny Mize being all in one piece and hitting! the ball for magnificent distances. They never die on the St. Louis Cardinals. • HOLD EVERYTHING must have run into a fie -': of robins headed nori> I" 'Somewhere in the Pacific' A patrol blimp floats over two transport ships and a destroyer, right background, as a U S convoy m;>kes its way toward the western Pacific biiUic urea.

In all probability, this new step will 'benefit the fJrey- hounds, for little is left of the championship '41 team. The Douglases and Murdochs are all gone and the problem of building a. winning combination is bestowed iupon (Irey- hound mastermind Kant Kelly. Yes' sirree, the burden is left with Kant, just as the foot- Iball, basketiball and the remainder of the sports program was left in his hands . . .it's up to him. Although the <,reyhounds didn't cop conference honors la.'.'t season, that doesn't mean that they won't kick the dope bucket over this year. There is a determination born in the locals this season to rise, to new heights of fjlory heights of which haven't been seen or heard of in this vicinity in part years. The (Ireyhounds will officially open their '42 conference schedule against Monroe hiuh at Monroe on March 24lh. only ei^ht days off. The 'hounds travel to \Vinston-Salem on the L'Tth, where they will tangle with the Children's Home team. Xext in line is Concord, last reason's conference champions and the 'hounds' hitter rivals.
