If rd had an, brains I'd have passed him to get to Clyde Vollmer, a righthanded batter." Tommy Holmas. Boston Braves manager — "We'll have the best pitching In the National League. If we rind a goad shortstop or a good second-baseman we could win the pennant. We've got the finest rookie crop in history." Larry Goetz, umpire — "Am I loosing forward to the state of another season? Listen, the way I feel about baseball I die a little bit when that last game comes around every year."

So Sal says yes. and he pitches me a shutout. He finishes up with an 18-4 record, best in the league, and I'm a genius. Sometimes a manager can't see something that's right before his eyes." Frank Lane, general manager, Chicago White Sox—"Chuck Com- iskejr will be back as vice president. It's just, a little family argument. The sooner he's back ths better I'll like It. I need him to carry half the load durlrur spring training." Eddie stanky, manager — "The Giants will be the team to beat again. They've got the best pitch- Ing right down the line, and I say pitching Is go per cent of a winning team. Pitching is going to be my biggest problem with the Cards." Warren Oiles. new National League president—"I Kueas the biggest surprise to me has been the sudden transformation of our staff Of umpires. When I was with Cincinnati I always thought they were • pretty mediocre lot but now 1 find they're really a sterling group of. men who seldom if ever make a mistake." Spike Briggs, Detroit president— "I'll still be just a week end base ball magnate. I'll have to stay out at the body plant «nd work hard all week to make enough money to pif off the btueball losses."

League President AI Haraway said last night that he was negotiating with a group of Magnolia suslnessmen on the possibility o! transferring the Clarksdale, Ml&s., club to the South Arkansas city.

"We're just waiting to see If we can get enough people sufficiently nterested to put their money where their mouth Is." he said. Asked if he thought a city as •small as .\fagnolfa could support a professional baseball club, Cole said he did—barring the advent of television. He added that the ponsl- bility that television would be available In Magnolia soon was « factor In the group's Indecision. 6,918 Population Magnolia h«s a population of «,918, but Cole said he felt the club would draw fans from an area with a Population of about 11,000.

Two other cities still are being rnenlionea as possible replacements for Clarksdale. They are Helena Ark., and Vicksburg., Miss., both former members.
