PETERSBURG, Fla. tfft-ClUl chambers, the tall, toothy and talented lefthander of the St. Louis Cardinals, thinks he will be a big winner this year he finally has landed with a winning club. "A pitcher is not any better than* the club he is with," said the 30- year-old native of Portland. Ore. Sports Roundup . Ore. "Of course, there are a few exceptions like Bob Feller and Walter Johnson. But on the whole, a pitcher Just can't be a big winner with a losing club." Chambers, an Intelligent, clear- thinking fellow who believes the rumor that South- Clifl Chambers paws also are left- handed thinkers, has set a goal of 18 to 20 victories for himself, provided the club goes well. The most games he's won in four seasons with three clubs up to now are the 14 he captured last year. Eleven of these came after" the Cardinals obtained him from Pittsburgh last June. Blfgeil Break "I won 42 games In Iwo years on the coast," he said. "And I see nn reason why I can't win here, I'm not flattering myself when I say that I am a better pitcher now. I'm more experienced, more mature." Chambers regards his trade to the Cards as Ihe biggest break he ever got. "I like the park, I like the organization and I like the manager and the players." he said. "I think Sportsman's Park in St. Louis is much better suited to left-handed pitchers than p'orbes Field In Pittsburgh. You've got a big open leftfield in St. Louis. "Eddie Stanky hasfmpressed m« greatly a* a manager. He has lett no stone unturned I never have seen a better planned, more organized spring training program. There is something for Ihe boys lo do all the time. And Stanky ha-s the knack of mixing Inn wilh our workouts. No one gets a chance to get bored." overtime. : Whltworth 12 Millikln 71- Snringfield ,\fo, 82 Indiana Slate 64 Lawrence Tech 12 Utah State 6:i GAYI.F.
