TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 17, 1936 POTTSTOWN MERCURY, POTTSTOWN, PA. Phone 2263 PAGE NINE Need For More Punch May Bring Back Klein To Phils Quakers May Give Cubs Davis For Outfielder TODAYS' Wilson Figures He Wants Hitters; Says He Has Enough Pitchers PHILADELPHIA, March 16 i/P) — The need for more kick in the Phillies’ batting punch has started the talk of a Chuck Klein for Curt Davis deal with the Chicago Cubs again. Weeks ago the rumor was around the Phils wanted their old slugger back, and were willing to part with their top hurler to get him. Now that the training sessions have displayed a noticeable lack of long dUsance clubbing, baseball circles are again talking of trade possibilities. From the Winter Haven training base in Florida, comes Manager Jimmy Wilson’s wall: ‘‘I’ve got plenty of pitching, real pitching. What worries me is hitting. If we hit, we’ll go place*.” During the previous discussions on such a trade, the Phils turned down one proposition, because they believed Davis was worth more to them than the terms offered. How the situation stands now is net known, but is readily agreed that to obtain Kleins return. Wilson would have to part with Davis. Despite that, he believes the rest of his mound brigade—including Bucky Walters, Orville Jorgens. Hal Kelle- hcr, Joe Bowman and Syl Johnson —is good and indicates he can afford to lose Davis to get Klein and possibly another twirler in return. The Phils and Cubs meet at Winter Haven later in the month, and the baseball writing boys are keeping their eyes peeled on that get- together for possible business dealings.

March 16 (¿P) — Lafayette’s campus went wild today with the arrival of the new football coaching regime, headed by husky Ernie Nevers. Clasess were suspended to greet I the blonde gridman from the Pacific coast in his first head-coaching assignment. A parade swept the city's streets and undergraduates were visioning Nevers at the helm of a triumphant Maroon return to its “Big Time” position of other years. Ernie stayed with the festivities only long enough to receive the of- flcial welcome. Then he formally began the Spring practice sessions. The former Stanford fullbacking great, succeeding the resigned Herb McCracken, brought with him Mike Michalske, one-time Penn State ace. Mike will be first assistant during the Spring sessions, and may be signed to aid Nevers in the Fall. In addition, there is the crack freshman coach, Charley Soleau, who turned out, with the help of Charley Nesi, one of Lafayette’s best plebe outfits last Pall. Nevers was obviously pleased with the looks of the 50-man squad- biggest for the Maroon Spring turnout in recent years. The Spring sessions have been Maroon Students Vision Return to Big-Time Grids as Newcomer Takes Command ERNIE NEVERS going on for two weeks under the leadership of Soleau and Nesi. Nevers will continue them for another three weeks, instilling the Warner tactics he learned under the veteran “Pop” while at Stanford. Then Ernie will disband the squad, and probably turn his attention to assisting the weight men of the track team— a sport in which he also shone at Stanford. The Fall footbar practice call is set for September 8, when Nevers wili begin to get ready for one of the toughest Lafayette schedules in years, including clashes with Penn’s veterans, the sturdy Colgate forces, N Y.
