2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker He's sinking out al a .333 clip and baiting only .226, bul cocky Dick Stuart, who startled the baseball world by amassing 6C f we runs last year al Lincoln, ^ el)., is proving a refreshing Ionic to the Southern Association. White Sox, Yanks Opei Three-Game Set Tonight lie was a tonic, Dial is, until yesterday when Ihe Atlanta Crackers released him and returned him to the Pittsburgh I'iralcs. Stuart, who likes to remind a listeners Ihat he hit 68 homers 0 in the class A Western League rc last season—counting two in the e playo/fs — joined the Atlanta Crackers May 17 on loan from Hollywood which is Pittsburgh's " No. 1 farm. When he^ hooked up with the „ club at MchTphTs" alleF~dfivIng~ some 2,000 miles from the Pacific- Coast, his longue-in-chcek predic- „ tion was that "Maybe I'll hit 30 di or 40" homers.

"They are something I can't be blase ' about. ] gel a kick oul of hitting them—anytime—and I'm swing ing every lime I go lo the plate.* ~ Sluart went to Nashville lasl month after sending word ahcat that he would make the fans forget Bob Lennon, a hefty oulfield er who walloped 64 homers for (he Vols in 195-1. Nashville club officials reported a demand for first base box seals that hadn't been sold for ages from fans who wanted to razz the upstart. Big Stu had only one single for his first nine trips, and Ihe Nashville folks were giving him the business. Bul in Ihe last two games of the series he put two drives out ( of the park, and one traveled more Ihan 450 feet. He blew a kiss to his detractors, according to an Associated Press dispatch, when S.e crossed the plate and they loved it. Stuart and Ihe Crackers went to New Orleans, where the crowds again increased. Two more homers followed, both o! Ihe garganlnan variety.
