The latter, however, tyon't be able to give time to baseball until March 13 when winter football training is over. : Some 75 candidates are .expected to turn out March 1. .j Among those Dimmitt listed as possible candidaes are: Lindsp.v. Shufford, Moon, Elmer Pwtle. (Jharleg Smith and Jim Love, ail ipttertn'en pitchers, with Purtle also able to double as catcher.

Hurley Hartley and Bob Tullis, who did some squad duty in 1941 nml 1942. Bradley is booked for first base with Moon on hand if needed.

Marlin Has Seat Picked for 1948 Olympic Games By WHITNEY MARTIN NEW YORK, Feb. 20—MP)—We have our seat .-.eltcted if the 1948 Olrmpic games in London nre held at the White City stadium. It is called Wli:te City possibly because it is neither white nor a city. It is n vast, greyish layout in the outskirts of London which is quite popular with dog racing addicts and \v6uld bo even mare popular if they'd let the fans place a Miiall bet on the rabbit. It is adaptable to almost any sports activity, however, and we saw a track and fieKl meet there that was run off with the precision of cur American meets. The seat we huvc chosen is in the glassed-in section high up in the main grandstand. Here you can sit in plush comfort, partaking of food and liquids served to linened tables by tuxeiloed waiters and gaze with condescending tolerance at the people below. j As wo recall Miere were some lOf- ; | 000 spectntoi" at ihe track meet last j i summer, the lure being chiefly the! j presence of Guilder Haegg and Arno: ! Anderson, the Swedish .stars who. i look enough alike to be kinfolk. and j ! run the same way. We do not know i i the exact capacity of the stadium.! ; but it is our impression there wns! j enough wasted space to provide for | • many thousands more spectators; ! with a little revamping. Stadium re- i vamping, that is. ! One thing the visiting athletes at; London will find to their pleasure i will be probably ihe most courteous, j sportsmanlike and orderly crowds ini I he world, a crowd which recognizes the good, clean effort without regard to race or creed. To us. the crowd attending the track meet presented»a most amaz- int; picture compared with our pushing, jostling, often discourteous American crowds. Maybe it was the result of a ,x"uien:e developed through tl~u lean and harried war years, but whatever the cause the Britons showed a lamblike docility. Hours before the meet was scheduled to start the lines at the ticket windows started forming. Soon they were stretching more than half a mile, six and eight deep. The fans ctme from all walks of life, as the cobbler or iron puddler is as likely to be a track i'an as the graduate of Eton or Oxford. It would take two or three regiments oi cops to handle svjih a, gathering in this country, yet we did not see more than a half dozen bobbies along that long line of patient Britishers. A courteous "lively now" or a crisp "one side please," and the crowd obeyed without question. It was a remarkable demonstration of crowd consideration. We have the idea White City or the WemoVy stadium or some other plant now in operation will be the scene of the games, as it will take tht Britons a long time to rebuild their bomb-torn city, and all construction for several years probably will be confined 10 necessary building. We do not know whether or not it has been repaired by now, but last fiesMn-Show Handler Jake Terhune proudly exhibits wire terrier Hetherington Model Rhythm, chosen- best dog of more than 3000 paraded in Westminster Ken- Club show at Madison Square Garden.

Aging Chalky Wright Falls Before Bolanos LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20—f/P)— The difference between 21 and 34 years in age seemed just about 'the margin that gave young Enrique Bolanos a 10-round decision over veteran Chalky Wright at the Olym- pl3 auditorium last night.
