LOUIS (UP) — Stan Musial, the St. Louis Cardinals' indispensable "man," celebrated his 3t7h birthday today.. The slugging first baseman viewed the sands running out on a great baseball career with the optimism produced by his seventh National League batting crown. Before starting his .351 season, highest in his last six, Stan was very cautious about future prospects. He was operating, he said at the time, on a "year to year" basis. But now he figures he's good for two, maybe three more good seasons. "Every man in the game has his own playing deadline," he said. "Each goal you set moves your sights up a notch when it is reached.

"I don't say I'll take it, but I guarantee you I'll consider it." Lane told the United Press by telephone from St. Louis that he made an offer to McHale and that the Detroit general manager promised an answer "within a few days."

Now I need only 43 for 3,000." Hurt in August Musial's latest goal, which lie hopes to reach sometime next May, would make him the eighth player in history and the first since Paul Waner in 1942 to reach such a total. Musial, who suffered a bone chip and muscle tear in his left shoulder when he swung too violently on Aug. 20, returned to the lineup after the injury with renewed vigor. He showed little loss of form in batting .500 the last 10 games.
