(AP) — There isn't any doubt in my mind that the Cubs will be an improved club in 1955. I'm so sure that we will be a first division club that I'll be terribly disappointed if we don't make it. 0/e' Per/esser Opens Yanks' Rookie School ST. PETERSBURG. FJa. W — The New York Yankees' annual rookie school opened today with Manager ; Casey Stengel in charge and 33 young baseball players showing off their ability. Among the youngsters were twins from Commerce, Okla., with a po- tent baseball name — Ray and Roy Mantle. They are brothers of Yankee centerflelder Mickey Mantle nd also play the outfield. The 19-year-old rookies played with McAIester, Okla., last year. Ray hit the Class D pitching for .324 and Roy batted .325. The school will last until the Yankees open their own spring training seasoij here March 1. Carl Ersklne of the Brooklyn Dodgers pitched two two-hitters during the 1954 season. Meeting Today May Set Up Army for Bowls WASHINGTON 10 — An 18-man delegation was expected today at West Point to discuss a resolution by Rep. Hebert (D-La) that the U. S. Military Academy accept possible future bids to participate in a post-season major football bowl game. The New Orleans Times-Pica- yune and the Washington Poat uid Times Herald both repotted U»t night the probability of Army tennis taking part In future bowl games. The newspapers said the 'first formal action toward relaxation of Army's bowl ban will be taken when the Military Board of Visitors, of which Rep. Hebert 1: * member, visits the Academy. The board, comprised of congressional, military and civil members, is expected to adopt Hebert'i resolution in a vote Friday. We h;td two major problems last year.. Wo needed better pitching and we never quite solved our outfield problem. I think now both these matters have been solved. We'll have 21 pitchers or more in camp and sfiven of them had 11 combined minor league record of 129 victories and only 53 defeats last season. I know we'll be much stronger in the pitching department. I'm told Sam Jones, whom we got from Cleveland in the Ralph Kincr deal, is now ready for the majors. I'm counting on him as a starter along with holdovers Bob Rush, Paul Minner, Warren Hacker and Jim Davis with Howie Polfet working in spots. Thorpe Ready? I wouldn't he .surprised if Bobby Thorpe, who won 28 and lost only 4 for Stockton last year, is ready right .now for the majors. John Andre, who won 21 for shrevcport; Hy Cohen, who won 16 for Des Monies, and John Pyecha. who was the best pitcher on the coast Basketball Scores liy THE ASSOCIATED 1'KESS Duquesne 62, Carnegie Tech 27 SI.

Wm&Mary 99 Georgetown (DC) 84, Villanova league last year, are other possibilities. Our outfield will be better defensively. With Kiner gone, we can restore Hank Sauer to left field, where he is accustomed to playing, and we can spell Frankie Bnumholtz in right'field with any one of three younger players. They tell me that Gale Wade, another we got from the Indians, is a terrific center fielder, a dangerous hitter and a great base runner. With rookies Jim Bolger and Solly Drake to back up Wade in con- ter, we can use either Ted Tappe or Bolger in right. Top Combination Our infield with Gene Baker and Ernie Banks as the second base combination is second to none In the national league. We also are strong both at first and third base. I feel sure that Dee Fondy and Randy Jackson will have better j seasons. j I know our catching \vill be better. Harry Chili, who is just out of the Army could be our No. 1 catcher. He's a powerfully built kid with a good throwing arm, lots of pepper and talent to match. We .still have Walker Cooper and Clyde McCullough, our two veterans, and a . pair of youngsters in Jim Fanning and Blvin Tappe. 79 5e Ullkc 75, Wake Forest 73 Richmond 78.
