LOS ANGELES. Cal.. March S — (UP)—Uncle Charley Grimm, the genial boss man of the Chicago Cubs, isn't saying much these days. His brow is furrowed and he appears to bo looking into the future—an assumption that is at least partially correct. "I'm just going 'to have to bank on some youngster to como through and make a pennant contender out of this club," ho said. "I'm banking on young Cliff Chambers to turn into a regular starter tor my club. He looks like a winner—and if he is, he'll lift a lot ot worries about the pitching department." Chambers, a 24-gnme winner with Los Angeles in the Pacific Coast League last year, has looked good in spring training so far—and Grimm hopes he is as good as he looks. However, Jolly Cholly has a few other worries, too. He is trying to convert Peanuts Lowery. the | outfielder, into a third baseman. If i that experiment jells, it will add i butting punch to the inner defense, j practice sessions, Lowery has i looked 0. K., with an adequate | arm. Ho worked at the spot part' time last year I "I'm hoping that Jess Dobernic. another Los Angeles pitcher, will fill the bill for us as a relief man," says Grimm. "He was phenomenal with the Angels in a relief role last year — and lie could save us a lot ot games." Veterans are nailing down the i catching berths; first base, second ' and shortstop—and two of the out- I field spots will be handled by Phil iCavaretta and Andy Pafko. The third will go to Bill Nicholson—if he hits. However, if any one of the trio shows-any signs o£ 'weakness, Grimm has a youngster- just waiting for such an opportunity. "His name is Clarence Maddern and lie may be terrific as a. Major Leaguer," says Charley. "He's a slow starter, nut ha batted around .400 the last mouths of the Pacific Coast League campaign and •may bo just what tho doctor ordered for our outtield'."
