They looked unbeatable. But we wore strongly touted by a friend who had been close to them all spring, and probably just as well. "Don't pick this outfit," he advised. "There's too much unrest.

I don't know how much bull they're going to play for him unless he changes his way of handling them, and I don'i think he knows how to do that." Need Robinson From the wordy wrangle which has been going on for several days between Alston and Jackie Robinson, there can be no doubt that the 6-year-old Negro star was one of those players who was under discussion. There exists now virtually an open break between the pair, and any Brooklyn fan who believes his club can win without Robinson in there doing his best Is an optimist indeed. Jackie's open blast at the strange, gloomy man who is mailing tiie Dodgers for the second season stemmed from Alston's failure lo use him regularly nt third base in exhibition games. Alston replied angrily that he thought Jackie's arm still was sore. Robinson's answer to that was, in effect, that a manager who knew |£ you are a new •• resident; if you are dissatis- ll fied; 11 it's quality; IT it's service; 11 it't cleaning; Try 'MOO" Cleaning at City Dry Cleaners Fre« Deliv«ry Ph.

Just in case the Goose doesn't come back, Saperstein can pick any one of four players to take ovej- Ttiturn's comedy act. Sam Wheeler and Andy Johnson are already filling in as jokesters and there's Robert Hall and Meadow Lemon ready to step in. The fact of the Tatum case seems to be that Goose is no chicken. He's been knocking around with Goose Tatum Saperstein for a long time but nobody seems to know his age. "I'd guess he's says Saperstein. in his late 30s," "But I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he were over 40. I don't think age has anything to do with it, after all, he's never strained himself."
