Could Decide Pennant But despite the face that an a\era}re of seven American league plavers per week have been di«- charjred since V-J day there btill is a possible pennant wrapped up in the uniforms of the army, navy, mai in * and coa--l guard. With spring" training a month awuj, managers aiound the circuit were adding up the discharge points O'i some of tl.sse players: I eti oit--Has three outstanding: hatterymen m sen-ice uniform's, George (Biidie) Tebbtts, No. 1 catcher; Ted Gray, piomising rookie pitcher, and Hal White. '43 pitcher. Also there's Pat MulHns, regular outfielder, plus such \et- i-rans as Third Baseman Pinky Higgins. Xrw York--Third hasc is wait- in'' for Bill Johnson, ''rookie of the year" in 1S)4'5. and the Yanks could use Mel Queen, Cnarlie 'Wensloff and Tommy Byrnes on their pitching staff. Gaps Xeed Filling Philadelphia -- Second Baseman Benny McCoy, the Athletics' §50,- 000 beauty, and ic-jular Shortstop Pete Suder could plug a lot of paps for Connie Mack. Outfielders Elmer Valo and Ford Garrison and Pitcher Bob Harris could make it a double plug. Cleveland--Manager Lou Bou- drcau needs the company of Ken Keltner at third bate and Charles Embree would gilt-edge a strong Indian mound staff. Gene Woodring and Henry Edwards probably would find work in tlie outfield. Washington--The return of Infielders Gerald Priddy and Johnny Sullivan and Pitchers Sid Hutson and Milo Candini would bolster the Senators. Brovns Need Pitcners Chicago--The White Sox' infield would be set with the return of Second Baseman Don Kolloway and the collapsible Sox pitching staff needs Gordon Maltzbeiger, outstanding relief pitcher. _ Boston--The Red Sox received all of their good news last week with the discharge of DiMaggio and Williams, leaving Pitcher W il- burn Butland as the only service- bound varsity man. _ St. Louis--The Browns' in-and- out pitching- staff could be revived by Steve Sundar and bolstered by Ellis Kinder, 19-game winner for Memphis in 1944, -and Bill Semsoth, formerly of Toledo.

Tni)AY. t iA\ r. run SAX MATEO TJMES-7 By Charles Plumb and Fred Fox YOUR CHEVVSN-UM MACHINE DOES NT WORK./ I'D UK.E . PENNV BACK/ NE\V YORK, Jan. 15.---(IP)-Bunts and punts on the sports scene: The ticklish situation faced oy professional football as result of the player salary war between the National league and All-A.nerica conference is voiced unhappily by Coach Greasy Neale of the Philadelphia Eagles. Greasy was forced to okay a reported S15.000 salary to hold Steve vr an Buren, the Eagles' league- eading ground gainer, who had received such an offer from an AA 2leven. ' , . , . , "And that's more than I make, groaned Greasy, who pulls down a measly $12,500. Salaries Going lip And with that club to hold over the owners' heads, all the salaries are going up. The Eagles reportedly had to raise the ante to keep Tackle Al Wistart and Halfback Jack Hm- kle. . . . Brother, can you spare a dime? , ,, None of which seems to bother old Tim Mara of the Giants, the white-haired former gambling man who still likes a battle. "Back in the old days when we had football opposition and there was a team playing in Yankee stadium," Mara explained about his red-ink years, "well, I'd climb up on the Polo grounds tower and look over at Yankee stadium with a pair of binoculars. Then I'd tell Charley Stoneham: 'They ain't drawing anybody over there--either.'" Mara Rams Go After Coliseum Lease LOS ANGELES, Jan. 15.--(IP)-The Los Angeles coliseum commission meets late today to consider leasing the 103,C10-seat bnvl to the Los Angeles Rams of the national football league, the ail-American conference entry, or for college competition. . The commission had received no official applications but members expected that representatives of both pro leagues would appear at the meeting. Opposition Expected Representatives of University _of Southern California and University of California at Los Angeles said hey also would apply for dates and were expected to oppose -use of he stadium by professional teams, In the past the stadium has beer restricted to amateur and -used nostly for USC and UCLA games. Leonard Roach, county supervisor and a member of the corn- nission, said he thought the col- eges and professional teams would work out a schedule - Hh rr ccn- flicts in top games. May Delay Action He said he anticipated that the commission would take the professional requests under advisement and delay action while the four teams get together on theix schedules. The fight over the use of the stadium was precipitated by transfer of the Cleveland Ranis' national league franchise to Los Angeles. The all-American league has announced it will operate a team here next fall. seemed to thihk this brawl is going to be easy. Bulletin--The Phillies have a fan. He is Sergt. Victor L. (Mack) McGinnis, currently sweating it out at Camp Atterbury, Ind. Mack writes that "by the 1950s the lowly Phils are going to be known as the mighty Phils, and the champion Phils w hen 'they go to work in a coming world series.'' ... I should live so long. Mack. . . . But Oh, low Herb Pennock must love that man. The deacon of Flatbush, old Bre'r Branch R ; ckey, announced in his usual few thousand well chosen vords tod^y that the Brooklyn Dodgers will have 150 players in their Sanford, Fla., training camp during February. There will be 30 on the faculty. The professor also announced that Bill Killefer, the old-time Phillies and Cubs' catcher, has been signed as a coach. Nylon Football Pants Due to the flood of key players returning from service in time for spring training, the Boston Red Sox are beginning to crowd the Yankees as American league favorites. With such aces as Ted Williams, Tex Hughson, Bobby Doerr, and Johnny Pesky returned, the Bosox might well make Tom Yawkey's dreams come true. . . . But-They're also saying that Dave Ferris, 22-game winner for the Sox in 194u, may be the Bill Voiselle of 1946. Bill, you'll remember, was a 20-game winner as a rookie the year befora, and got plenty of lumps last season. . . . Observers point out the trouble Ferris had late in the year and figure maybe he's due for bruises And listen, girls, this nylon situation looks worse all the time. The football fashion plates are crowding you now. The latest thing in Tidiron finery will be lightweight nylon football pants and jersies. The pants weigh six ounces compared with the old pants that bulked to two pounds' worth. Lay that pistol down, Babe! Grid League Sets Dp Draft NEW YORK, Jan. 15.--(LP)--The National Football league staggered into the sixth day of a marathon winter session today after going through the motions of a player draft and drawing up a schedule tentatively to open September 29. The draft lost most of its significance -when the clubs refused to identify most of the players selected for fear the rival all-America conference would get to them first with drooling checkbooks. Blanchard Chosen Those who were named prohably will not play professional football anywhere -before another season, at least, is past. For the recoid, the Pittsburgh Steelers chose Felix (Doc) Blanchard of Army, but he is expected to play at least one more season for the Cadets. Blanchard actually was third choice. The Boston Yanks, getting the first choice over the last-place Chicago Cardinals by a league agreement, had to pick Frank (Boley) Dancewicz since they already had the Notre Dame star under contract. Trojan Players Picked Chicago's choice, described as a "sleeper" player of only moderate fame, was not further identified on the grounds that he is on the point of being signed. Others definitely selected were: By the Philadelphia Eagles, first roll call, Leo Riggs, formerly a Southern California back who played there only one season before going into the navy three and a half years ago. By the Washington Redskins, first and second choices respectively, Cal Rossi, UCLA passing back, and Stan Koslowski of Holy Cross. Hockey Scorers Led By Shamlock, Carr Hustling Eddie Shamlock, of the Portland Eagles, and his teammate Alfred (Red) Cam today continued to dominate the individual scoring race in the Pacific Coast hockey lea.cue. Both players fattened their averages during the last week of play on the Eagles road trip through the southern branch of the league. Shamlock now has a total of 6-1 points to lead Carr by seven points. The Portland center has scored 27 goals and drawn assists on 37 others, while Carr has made the \ed light blink 22 times and assisted in 35 other counters. Third place in the scoring race is held by Bill Carse, of the Vancouver Canucks, with 54 points based on 2G goals and 28 assists.
