"His brother's knockout at the hands of Bob Fitzsimmons at Carson City on the 17th of March, 1897, was an important con-tributing factor. Joe must have felt his brother's defeat keenly and rival athletes, a8 well as the fans in rival towns, caught on. "The bleachers every time he got ready to pitchwould begin to toll off the fateful count of 10, to remind hint of Jim's knockout.

It was a long count and the brutes made it just as long as they possibly could.

"I remember." the veteran went on, "once aeeing him perform In the midst of these demoralizing circumstances and as the count from the bleachers went on and on, Joe finally went completely to pieces.

Flager originally was slated for the job. After two years In the army, he came back to enjoy a good season at Birmingham last year. He showed well enough, too, in the early drills of the club at Bloomington.

Then, in the exhibition series against the Cubs and Colonels at Ft. Knox and Louisville, he seemed to fall apart in the field. One bad boot seemed to put the pressure on him the rest of the way. McKechnie benched the ex-soldier and he has not been in action since. Wahl, unfortunately, has not proved to he the answer to the shortstop problem.

The June, 1944, graduate of Indiana university is a splendid prospect. Unfortunately, he had always played third base before. His total shortstop experience includes five exhibition games plus the 13 contests the Reds have played in the National league this season. His previous experience in organized ball amounted to a total of just 23 games at Birmingham last year. That was at third base.

Kermit has proved to be a scatter-arm thrower who has been saved from numerous errors by Frank McCormick's leaps Into space around first base. He has been slow in starting double plays and at a loss as to what to do on the pivot. Nor has he been able to get that "jump" on the ball that experienced shortstops do. This does not mean that Wahl is a hopeless case, or should be discouraged. As a matter of fact, he appears to have the makings of a good shortstop.

But it is a trade that takes time to learn. Flager. at least, hag been a shortstop all his life. If he doesn't suffer from the "yips." which is what Tommy Armour calls the nervous feeling that a golfer gets on the greens, he should give the Reds much better defensive protection than they've had to date. Also, as a left-handed swinger, he may give the Reds an offensive lift as well.

For Wahl has also shown that he can't hit major league pitching yet. Joe Louis Is Due At Field p.m. on the isoldiers rlome field; tonight. Deacon Bill McKechnie Lebanon tangles with Lena Con-j in announcing that Flager will be over at 2 p. and at 4 p.
