"I'll attend as often as possible," declared Gov. Fred Cone, of Florida, who is elated over the fact that the lone Florida entry won the straight season when Pensacola's Fliers finished ahead of the pack In 1937, Gov, Hugh White, of Mississippi, is a fan, and says he'll be pulling for Jackson and Meridian all the way Frank Thomas of Alabama. Josh- Cody of Florida and others prominent in the world of sport advised President Stuart X. Stephenson by letter that they predict a fine season and they assured the league chief they would attend many of the games. Official Schedule Southeastern League 1938 1938 Flier aggregation at a testimonial dinner and broadcast In the San Carlos Hotel. The bigwigs of the circuit will join with outstanding notables of Pensacola in pledging Manager Dashiell and his players their full-fledged support in 1938. President Stuart X. Stephenson will use- the date for a starting noinfc im hU tour of the Southern wine o: the baseball circuit. Prexy Stephenson will move over to Mobile, Meridian, Jackson and Selma on successive days for a last minute check-up of member clubs. The league president also plans another trip to Anniston and Gadsden to see that the "baby" members of the loop are ready for the start on April 19. The full contingent of clubs started their Spring drive to mould formidable baseball machines for the season last week. Gadsden, Mobile, Meridian and Selma "beat the barrier" by starting ahead of scheduled dates, Pensacola, Anniston, Montgomery -and Jackson opened their pre -season maneuvers on the allotted dates. Manager Marty Purtell had Jim Stopa working out at third base In the Spring workouts at Mobile. The big outrielder played the "hot corner" for two weeks at the Cardinals camp In Florida and loomed as a i omising third sacker. Roy Smith, who played third for the Shippers, is regarded as a "holdout" and If he tarries too long he may have to oust Stopa, for his old job. On hand for the opening workout were: pitcners Claude McNorton, Woody Gardner, John Stevenson, Bill Davis and Ralph Mead: Infielders Alford Richeson, Ed Patrow, Reo Whatley, Eddie Zivpy and Karl Kentling; Catchers George Patton and Al Unser and Outfielders Sebastian Wagner and John Stopa. The Shippers will play a stiff exhibition schedule with tiffs with the Philadelphia Athletics, St. Louis Cards, House of David, Memphis, Pensacola and Selma Included on the list. Pitcher Andy Doyle is sick and is expected to report late to the Seafarers. Wally Dashiell at Pensacola did a little string pulling and has secured Kinner Graf, ace righthander for the Fliers last season, to bolster his mound corps. Dashiell has also been angling for the return of his Indian third baseman Woody Arkeketa from Birmingham, but Arkeketa has been powdering the ' ball In exhibition games and may be retained as a reserve lnflelder by the Barons. The Fliers' pilot may also announce the return of two of his other mounds-men in a few days. Wally stands an excellent chance of landing either Barnes Smith and Morris Pickens or Roy (Poop) Decker, all who labored last season with Pensacola. Montgomery's Harry Hatcher and Manager Bud Connolly visited the camps of the Phillies, New Orleans and Cleveland last week and lined up playing talent. Connolly received an enthusiastic welcome at the Capital City and at the same time announced the acquisition of a hurler and an outfielder. Harry Walker, who batted .372 and was voted the "most valuable" player in .the Northern League in 1937, will be given a trial in the Bomber outfield. Walker played part of the season last year with the B's. The hurler is Max Brunson, who labored with Troy in the Alabama-Florida loop last year. At Meridian the Scrappers have the makings of the only brother act in the circuit in Norman Stauder and Edward Stauder, St. Louis boys. Manager Harry White house expects the boys to, stick and if they do a clause in their contract calls for "double- 1 Over 21,000 Loans Montgomery people have the habit ( of turning to Trustees for loan.

All Sunday games scheduled at home for first five Sundays to be double headers. Strikes And Spares rrvENPIN bowlers from Meridian, Miss., will be in town next Sat urday night with glints of determina tion in their optics, to play a return match with Montgomery's Monarchs. The local pin-spillers went to Me ridian a week ago and played a three-game match, total plnfall and won by a comfortable margin of 68 pins. It ought to be a matcn weu worwi seeing, as information has trickled through that the Meridianians are gonlg to throw the Monarchs for a loss and make them like it. The Monarchs consist of V. N. Hel- manr captain; C. Francis, - leadoff man; F. Sharp, G. Williamson and H. Leedy, anchorman. The Duckpin League rolled a split session this week and the first night saw the French Pianos win two out of three games from the WSFA Radioeers. The next night, the Alabama Power Company, determined to hold their narrow lead, took two out of three from Kosemont Gardeners. The second game was won by one pin. Will Paterson, Rosemont pin-buster, was the ranking bowler. He gave the Alabama Power severe headaches with scores of 108, 118 and a whopping 139. With a few more weeks to go, any learn can take first place .with the following standings: . W. Alabama Power 28 WSFA 22 Rosemont 22 French Pianos , 19 Henry Darrow went and did it again. Shot a 152 on regulation duck-pins (no rubber-band). This is the second highest duckpin score ever turned in. The highest was 162, shot by H. J. Wein, last Christmas Eve. Ma J. Severance, amiable head linesman of blf football fames, took his family to the alleys this week to show them what It was all about. He must have had a hunch as he made 249 in tenpins and It looks high for the week. In the Military League this week the 91st School Squadron won three games by default from the Officers, the Headquarters won two out of three from the 13th Air Base. A regulation tenpin weighs from three pounds to three pounds, eight ounces. Those little fellers weigh" about one pound, 10 ounces. The Pennies "copped" three games straight from the Dimes in the First National Bank League this week. The Quarters won two out of three from the Nickels. When the "two-bitters" need strikes Jehl goes out and gets them. During the course of a Midwestern tournament held In Des Moines, Iowa, some years age, a eat sauntered over the alleys, no doubt doing a bit of reconnoitering In search of a few delectable mice for pay" for the season. The Scrappers have a hustling bunch of players in training and they expect a stronger entry than the 1937 combination. Jackson and Manager Max Rosen-field a rousing welcoming party last week and the boosters in the Mag nolia State capital have shown an Increased interest in the Senators and from the looks of things Jackson will be the liveliest town in the circuit, Gadsden hasn't given up hope of securing their slugging outfielder, Harry Whltehouse, because Knoxville failed to mall him s contract in time. Whltehouse is dickering with the pilots and may sign at an Increased figure. Atlanta dispatched Dudley Parker to Gadsden last week and will send further help to Man ager Bill Morrell. At Selma Ivy Orlffin Is elated over the showing of three new players lnflelder Rum Newell and Outfielders Charlie McCall and Jimmy Ramsey This trio will be given a thorough trial by the Leafs and may be fitted Into some of the vacant places on the squad. Anniston is rushing work on their grandstand recently destroyed by fir. The new stands will be smaller but accommodations for overflow crowds have been provided. Oadsden likewise Is speeding work on their field and stands and the city commission has announced that they will be ready for the first game of the season. Four players have already been released by clubs, President Stephenson announced. Anniston has cut loose S. J. Cochrane and Montgomery has turned adrift Ellis Nichols, W. H. Johnson and William Steams. "Buss" Wetset, scout and manager of a Cleveland Amerlran League farm club, visited Southeastern League headquarters last week and told President Stephenson thai he had "discovered much interest In the Southeastern territory and that he expected the league to have an outstanding race and most successful sesson." Indications poni to Just that, supper. She arrived at the fourth alley Just in time to get hit by a 16-pound pill in the midriff and get carried into the 1-2 pocket for a strike. This was Indeed a "messy strike.'' P. S. A. "messy strike" is one that looks better in paper, than it does on the alleys. At a special meeting held this week by the Montgomery Bowling Association, it was decided that a city tournament be held April IS. It will be confined to singles and doubles only and as t is a sanctioned A. B. C. tourney, only the . members of tne Commercial League can participate. The Gladiators of Dr. Pepper went to work on the Philco Radios and won three straight. One of them was a 1,002 score. The A. B. C. Board won two out of three from the powerful Coca-Cola Keg-lers and the Fine Arts got two out of three from the Pacific Loaners. After 51 games, the standings are: W.

Richards Has Played In 11 Baseball Loops SAVANNAH, OA., March 26. (IP) Paul Richards, the youthful play-ing-manager of the Atlanta Crackers of the Southern Association, has been around no little in baseball's many leagues. In fact, the lanky Texan has played in 11 leagues in 11 years. This far-flung visiting included appearances In a World Series and a little world series. It was in May, 1926. that Nap Rucker, the old Dodger flinger, stepped into a trolley car from Dallas to Waxahachit, a distance of some 30 miles and gave the 17-year-old Richards $1,000 to sign a contract with Brooklyn. Today, Rucker is procuring talent for the same club the 29-year-old Richards is managing and hoping to lead to a successful finish in the Southern pennant race. Richards has played in the Eastern, Eastern Shore, International, American , Association, Western League, Western Association, . Texas, South Atlantic, American- and National Leagues. Now he's starting his second year in the Southern Association and his fu?t as a manager. In 1930, playing for Macon, Ga as the property of Brooklyn, he ran across Earl Mann there as business manager. Eight years have" now passed and Mann is president of the Crackers, Richards the manager. Connie Mack, 75-Year-Old Boss, Makes Great Comeback Exhibition Baseball At LaFayette, La.

An extra period goal, his only one of the game, by Willis Patterson, Danville, gave the Auburn polo team 9-8 win over Ohio State here Saturday in a match that featured the Tigers' wonderful comeback in -the second half. In the first of the two-game series with the Buckeyes the Tigers recorded a 6-2 victory. Behind at halftlme, 8-3, the victors staged a marvelous rally to lick Ohio Btate for the second straight time. The first half was all In favor of Ohio State and the second was Auburn's. To prove their superiority after half-time the Bengals completely bottled up the losers foremost offensive threats in the first three chukkers, Earl Sprunger, Relder Schell and Chuck Ballou, Ohio State dominated the play In the opening half, however, as much ss -Auburn did in the last.

(IP) From out of the shadows of desperate illness and shattered dreams has marched old Connie Mack to make the grandest comeback of the Spring baseball season. The 75-year-old patriarch's comeback is almost unbelievable. Last Fall the curtain seemed to be falling slowly but surely. As he faded, his spirit flickered, toor and it was certain old Connie was on his last mile. Even his oldest and closest cronies shook their heads and advised him at least to give himself what small chance he had left by surrendering the active managership of the down and out Philadelphia Athletics. But old Connie fooled them all, possibly even himself. He struck out the side with the bases loaded In the ninth. And today he's back at his familiar post, his head buzzing with schemes to land at least another world championship and his long arm waving his boys home with his inevitable scorecard. He's even getting fat that is fat for such a lean man as Connie and now weighs 142 pounds, the heaviest he has been in nine years.: ' - '-' "Doggone it," says Connie as he began his 38th year as leader of the A's, "I've got it licked. I'm coming now and maybe we'll still have some fun winning a pennant or two." Of course, Connie has been saying the same thing without getting any place since he broke up his championship team of 1929 through '31. And surely, he can expect nothing better than a second division ball club this year against such competition as the Yankees, Tigers, White Sox and Indians. Yet, the dope is his ball club will fool a lot of people this season. For the first time in years, he actually has spent some money on his team and when Connie spends more than $1,000 on anything you can expect some right fancy dividends. Over-Winter Improvements on his present team costVhim approximately $50,000, counting players sent in deals. Second base was the biggest weak spot of the 1937 club, so Connie has spent time and money trying to strengthen it. For the Job, he bought Dario Lodlgiana, 21-year-old star, from Oakland of the Pacific -Coast League.

(P Horses from the California and Florida campaigns loomed tonight as favorites In tomorrow's renewal of the Louisiana Derby at a mile and one-eighth for 3-year-olds with an added value of $12,000. Ten seemed certain starters with the possibility 12 might go. Anthony Pelleterl won the event last year with Grey Count and his Sir Raleigh loomed as the overnight favorite at 8 to 5. He showed to advantage in California. Second choice at 5 to 2 promised to be Hal Price Headley's Bourbon King, shipped here from Florida. Eddie Arcaro, until the last few days the nation's riding Jockey, will ride with him. R. L. Veder, 18-year-old benedict and the country's leading Jockey, will have the mount on a 10 to 1 shot, E. K. Bry son's filly Bunny Baby. Prince Argo and William Palmer are listed as doubtful starters. like "Load-e-johnny" though his mates insist it's "Load-of-ginny) disappointed Mack at first but seems to be coming into his own rapidly. If he can field and hit, Connie's greatest problem will be solved. Connie's biggest surprise packages of the year, however, seem to be Harold Wagner, a six-foot catcher obtained by the free agent route, and Bill Kalfass, 21-year-old southpaw pitcher from Trenton. Both may be a year or two away from big tune but Connie suggests we keep our eyes peeled on those two youngsters who may some day provide the championship spark. Of the two, the hunch is Kalfass already has done more to make Connie well than his diet. Wild Bill, who hails from Nanuet, N. Y., is a typical Rube Waddell who has given Connie more chuckles than a juicy dividend check. He's the screwball type and you can tell Connie is a bit daffy over the big, awkward kid who rears six feet, 3 1-2 inches skyward. One evening, Wild Bill strolled Into the hotel lobby. He had been out late and had inbided a bit. He was sure Connie didn't know about his mean-derings and guzzling habits, so he walked up to the tall tutor and asked: "Mr. . Mack, do you mind if I sit down and think with you?" "No sir," snapped Connie, and you'd better atari thinking right now about getting in shape on that ball field." Wild Bill was flabbergasted but undaunted. - "Mr. Mack," he said, "I guess you know I drink beer. But I gotta have my beer. I love beer. Beer means everything to me, why...." , Connie, fighting to overcome an outright laugh, snapped back: "All right then. You can drink beer for breakfast, for lunch and for dinner only don't forget you have to do a full day's work for Connie Mack and the ball club." And Wild Bill has been doing his day's work, beer and all. Watch out for that kid. He's got something and it isn't Just an appetite for malt. Lanett Mill AlsoTo Play Tiger Nine Swindle, Kilpatrick Diamond, Andrews To Toe Rubber Plainsmen Strong Coach Morgan Is Well Pleased With Club In Opener AUBURN. ALA., March 26 Collegiate opposition and two games with a leading independent club in this section, Lanett Mill, now faces the 1938 Auburn baseball team. The Tigers of Coach Dell Morgan will square off with the Troy Teachers on Drake Field at Auburn Wednesday and Thursday in their opening college tilts of the year and will tackle Lanett Mill here Friday and at Lanett Saturday in their other battles for the week. The trio of contests on the local diamond all will get under way at 3 p.m. Dividing a twin bill with the Goodyear G-3's in their first starts of the season, the Plainsmen managed to get off to a fine start in prepping for Southeastern Conference warfare and hope to win their second straight loop pennant. The team, which is composed mostly of green youngsters is expected to develop right along under Skipper Morgan and finish the season as another top-flight outfit Coach Morgan is still far from set on his No. 1 club. The Big Four of the slab staff likely will be Dick Swindle, Charles Kilpatrick, Lefty Diamond and Bill Andrews. Cooper Sellers, however, is another good mound hope and will be bidding for a starting spot as soon as he rounds into top physical form. He's a recent victim of the mumps. Alternating behind the plate throughout the season probably will be Norman Whitten and Francis Riddle. And George Kenmore and Howard Bazemore seem to be all set at second and in left field, respectively. Also, Tommie Thompson will be the ace oenterfielder if his hitting picks up. Both Charlie Grisnam and Doug Bennett are still battling for top honors at shortstop and either might win out. Lettermen Monroe Hayes and Malvern Morgan are sure first-stringers, but Coach Morgan has not decided where to station them permanently. If Hayes is at first, Morgan will be at third. If Hayes patrols right-field, Morgan will be at first and Carl Happer at the hot corner. Either Dopey Phillips or Oscar Burfotd will roam in right when Hayes and Morgan are both playing in th infield. Phillips also is a centerfleld prospect. Phillips will play lots and likely will win a utility role if not a reguar post if his work at the plate continues to improve.
