PAGB EIGHT ILTTHBYILLB (AMC.) COUHICT KEWi MONDAT, APRIL 4, 1MB Rundown of New Major Pilots Shows Two Most Successful Dressen, Higgins Have Best Records By SHELDON SAKOWVTZ The Awoctated Press With the start of the major league baseball season just a week away, this is as good a time as any to check up on the six new American League managers in the spring training games. Chuck Dressen of the Washington Senators and Mike Higgins of the Boston Red Sox have had the most success. The Senators have won 11 and lost 6 to lead the American League. Boston's 12-8 record Is good for third place. But the lour other newcomers— Marty Marion of the Chicago White Sox,-Paul Richards of the Baltimore Orioles, Bucky Harris of the Detroit Tigers and Lou Boudreau of the Kansas City A's—haven't been so successful. The White Sox, Orioles and Tigers each have 8-12 won-lost slates. The A's, In the basement, are 8-13. All six skippers have reason to be pleased today, however, after the performances of several of their key players yesterday. Shortstop, which has been problem for Washington, may have been clinched by rookie Johnny Kline, who Went four-for-four as the Nats edged the Cincinnati Bed- legs 6-4. Kline singled In the ninth mnd rode home on Eddie Yost's fame-winning home run. Norm Zauchln. fighting for the Boston Red Sox first base job, walloped-a two-run homer In the sixth Inning .off the Philadelphia Phils' ace, Robin Eoberts, to give the Red Sox a 4-2 victory. .GloaU Over Dropo • The White Sox bowed to ihe St. Louis Cards 12-7, but Manager Marlon continued to gloat over the power hitting of Walt Dropo. The big first sacker socked his third home run In four days and teammate Bob Nleman also lilt for the Cocky Wes Sees Mile In 4 Soon AUSTIN, Tex. UP!—Cocky Wes fiantee, who came - nearer the four-minute mile Saturday than ho ever had before, thinks he'll get It within the next two months. His time was 4:00.5. The angular Kansan with the chop stride complained that he was tired, and that a brisk north wind might hamper his bid for the glory that has gone to Roger Bannister and John Landy. But he showed no signs of weariness as he breezed around Memorial SVtv dlum in the Texas Relays. Half-Lap Lead His time was a new American record and with a little -stronger competition he might have done the four-minute-mile. He \vas half a lap ahead of Henri Oeller of Oklahoma A&M at the finish. Santec said he will rest three weeks before competing In the Kan&as Relays and hopes to be in top shape for May and June meets in California, Where he believes his chances are best to crack the barrier on a clay track. The relays were dominated by Oklahoma A&M and Texas, who swept all of the seven relays, the Aggies with four first places. Oklahoma A&M might have won n record five but for a dropped baton in the mile relay. circuit. Rip Rcpulski of the Cards banged a grand-slam home run in the first frame. Baltimore's pitching fell apart In the ninth inning when Pittsburgh scored six runs and pulled out an 11-8 verdict, but the Orioles gained some solace from the hitting of Gus Trlandos and the pitching of Jim McDonald, both acquired from the Yanks, Trlandos, expected to plug the first base gap, poled a home run with the ba.scs loaded, and McDonald hurled seven creditable innings, ack Shcp- ard's grand-slam homer In the ninth inning climaxed the Pirates outburst. Detroit split a double-header with Atlanta of the Southern Assn.. losing the opener 5-4 but taking the six-inning nightcap 8-0. Ned Oar- vcr continued to sparkle on the mound for the Tigers, pitching a two-hitter in the second game. Shanti Recovered The A's and Manager Boudreau got some good news when Bobby Shantz turned In his most impressive stint of the training season as Kansas City downed Savannah ol the Sally League 8-1. The crafty southpaw, plagued by arm trouble the past two years, gave up one run and five hits In five Innings and his control showed sharp Improvement over previous appearances. Elsewhere, Harry Chill's pair of homers paced the, Chicago Cubs to a 12-r triumph over San Antonio of the Texas League. Tom Morgan went the route as the New York Yankees trimmed Memphis of the Southern Assn. 13-1, Gene Copley worked eight Innings as the Milwaukee Braves licked the Brooklyn Dodgers 5-1, and the New York Giants rallied for three runs In the eighth Inning tc turn back the Cleveland Indiana 7-5. Chicks Get First Test Tomorrow Bly Seville's Chick trackmen get their first test tomorrow when they RO to Caruthersville to run against the twnsioucd Tigers who last week copped second In the State B indoor meet. Jackson, Mo,, also will be on hand to make it a three-way affair. Coach Russell Mosley said this morning he didn't know yet who will do most, of the running for the Tribe, He said time tests would be run this afternoon to pick the Chick entrys in the lull- slate of events scheduled for tomorrow. Moslcy said he plans to take all of the approximately 26 boys he has out for track. BIG LEAGUE ROOKIES ...

As a. kid, hla little nephew was always getting into fights. Hence Bozo, quickly shortened to Bo. Wininger, handsome enough to be in pictures although slightly graying at the sides of his dark- thatched head, has been around golf courses since he started caddying in Guthrie, Okla., at 14. Wininger played halfback for Guthrie High and ran th« 100 In 10 flat, but stuck to golf at Oklahoma A. and M., where he majored in psychology. • « • ... ;l l f ueas I knew what was coming," he laughs.
