' · · The taseban scout who gets through this season without nervous prostration or something worse will be lucky. That's the opinion of Jack McAllister, scout of the Cleveland Indiana, who predicts this will be the most strentt- ons year the Ivory hunters have ever had. - ' · · ' · "Every ball club will have to keep .plugging np holes during the. season," McAllister said.. "Men will be lost In the army draft right along and the wise manager and scout must anticipate these losses and get men who may fin in as soon as the regulars an called. . . . :'. . "What Is even more difficult from our 'standpoint is that wo cannot go Into the'minors anil take men In the draft age, as It'wouldn't be long until their placet would have to be filled. It resolves Itself into a proposition of getting met, either over or under tho draft age, and .'players of this class are elthei apt to be too Inexperienced for big league'play or too old to be of much service.-.' : .
