A "double leader" is a tree with two main trunks. 3. Laterals must be controlled. By clipping at strategic points on the side branches, other side branches will sproul and fill in any noticeable gaps that detract from the shape of the tree. This is the most effective way of getting compact form. Pruning Christmas trees piggy-back beats a step-ladder.

Littrell, 28, said he used a closed stance when he had his hitting splurge with Portland to finish the season with a .307 batting average, the only time he's been over- .300 in nine years of professional baseball. "I don't know why it hasn't worked here," he said. "I've tried to open my stance for a few games and then go back to the closed stance, but it hasn't worked yet. If I ever get to feeling natural, I'm sure I'll hit."

"He can hit a long nail when •he's right," said Scheffing, who managed in the Pacific Coast League himself last year ar.d saw Litlrell when he was hot. Littrell last week got his first major league home run against Pittsburgh, but his average with the Cubs has hovered ground .200. Despite'his failure with the bat, Littrell hasn't pulled down the wrath of either the Cubs fans or the baseball writers. They respect him for his fielding and he gets cheers frequently for his play in the field. But when he comes to bat In late innings with men on base and the Cubs behind, Scheffing usually puts in a pinch hitter, and nobody questions his judgment.
