MCE HIS OIL U R«k' Problems Involve Patches-On The Tean\ And Owner's Parifs. EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is one ,-ta UK series of ,sUrtei; on the (eaau in sprint Iraln- BY WILLIAM BHAUOIEK N'EA .Rervicis SpoKs Editor .".. TAMPA, Fla.—Dan Rowley's dilemma; as ' manager of tlie Cincinnati Reds, Is not unlllie the "problem of Owner Sidney S, Well 'regarding his' p»nls. • . The plump Mr. Well voluiUceied .as base umpir c In n .game between the Red. Yunnlgans nn'd «hat generously might be. called 'the Red, regulars here the other day. While making an especially difficult, decision at eeconrl base, Mr. Well split his panw. .- Mr. Well was rescued, however. The correspondents, much lo lhc chagrin of the local Chamber of Commerce, had taken along their topcoats to the park. Mr. Well was saved some embarrassment by wearing one of Ihe coats back to the historic Tampa Bay hotel. In. justice .to Mr. Weil, let It be recorded .that he returned the coat, a procedure not common • among baseball magnates. Nov Mr. Well faces the problem of. patching Dip old trousers or buying new ones. It is the same situation Dan Howley has been facing all along with his bal! club —either to patch or lo buy new players. Iji buying players, there Is a good chance that Dan would' have to offer money, or a good substitute. The Cincinnati club has neither. • .• • The Reds are not In liealthy condition, either physically or financially. The team lost a chunk of money last year. It wound up in eighth place There Is not even a prospect of soaring to seventh, place this s«ason. .Lost year, Dan Rowley englu- jered the learn through the season with one outstanding ball player, pitcher Red Lucas. This year, since patching up somewhat by acquiring Babe Herman In a trade with Brooklyn, Hovrley will have two ball players on his club. Of course there Is the possibility, that a searching party may hay e to be sent out to find Herman in that huge Cincinnati oul- fleW, but the Babe is .expected to make up at the bat for what he lacks In fly-ball discernment. . You can't tell Dan Howlcy (hat, though. Dan thinks the deal with Brooklyn, whereby Herman. Gilbert and Lombard! come lo the Beds In exchange for SUipp. Cuc- dneilo and Sukeforth,. will help the club. . "We had to do something." Dan told, me here the other day. "I almost got:to the- point where I would trade hip boots' for sandals. At least we knew we couldn't gel. any place with the club we had ; last year.. Herman and Lombardi will ..add a whale of a punch. •like a giraffe in the outfield. Well, Ilk* a fllraffe In the outfield.
