NE ON CARDS paschal! Experts Make World's Champions an Overwhelming Fes orite to Repeat This Year GET 54 OUT OF 72 VOTES --- t0 Ballot Places Them Lower Than Third in the National League Consensus THE DODGERS ARE NEXT Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs Are Given Outside Chances to Win (By tits Associated Press) - New York April 13---The uncertainties of baseball this year failed to bring any uncertainty to the minds of the baseball experts as to which team will win the National league pennant Figuring it always is best to string along with a champion when in doubt the seventy-two scribes taking part in the annual Associated Press poll selected the St Louis Cardinals as their No 1 team by an overwhelming majority Fifty-four Of the voters picked the world champions for first place with no ballot placing them lower than third The Brooklyn Dodgers runnersup last year ranked second drawing eleven first-place votes and no vote lower than fourth Three Votes for the Cubs The only other teams to be considered for first place is the Cincinnati Reds with four backers for the top position and the Chicago Cubs who have three voters picking them for the pennant The Reds ranked third right behind the Dodgers figuring On the point basis of eight points for first seven for second six for third etc Behind he Reds in order came the Cubs the New York Giants the Pittsburgh Pirates the Boston Braves and as usual the Philadelphia Phil& The point totals ranged from the 554 assembled by the Cards to the Phi Is' St The Phi Is have one backer who thinks they will wind up in fifth place and one optimist also has the Braves tabbed for that slot The Cards and the Dodgers are the only two teams not to be pushed back into the second division by at least one voter The Reds were ticketed for every place from first to sixth and the Cubs from first to seventh The Giants were picked to finish anywhere front second to seventh More of a Guess Than Ever The voters although they gave the champions such an overwhelming vote of confidence are acutely aware that this year the predicting is more of a guessing contest than ever with the draft board and other factors associated with the war making even the day-to-day strength of the clubs problematical In fact some of the scribes made a note of the fact that their selections were based purely on the prospects of the various teams as of that particular day and were not concerned with possibilities that might hinge on the manpower situation The voting: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Pts St Louis 54 14 4 554 Brooklyn 11 35 17 480 Cincinnati 4 12 20 22 12 2 400 Chicago 3 9 17 18

games while Novikolf the rookie flop of 1941 was wringing 300 from his bat as the in-and-out left-fielder "Dallessandro has handled left field nicely this spring" said Manager Jim Wilson "Novikoff is

Its Successful Coach to the Navy (By The Stars Sports Editor) ABASEBALL fan strikes a note for Joe Rigged A recent article about Ted Gu llic brings this rebuttal: "Don't you think the Milwaukee writer failed in checking the records of association veterans when he states that only one man Bruno Haas played longer than Ou llic?" writes B P McK "I need only to mention one of our favorite home town boys Joe Rig gert Kansas City fans remember Joe well He played twelve seasons with St Paul and I believe he holds the record of most number of games" They Managed to Get There Nammo short of amazing has been the New York response to the opening of Its surmner racing campaign The general manager at Jamaica ordered 22000 programs for opening day last Thursday and admitted that he probably was overly Optimistic But the crowd went over the 26000 mark and the program vendors ran out As a rule second day crowds fall far below opening day registration but It wasn't that way at Jamaica when the spectators numbered almost as many as the track officials had believed would turn out for the opening exercises Just another indication of the lure of amusements for the men and women on the home front They have money to spend and it seems fair enough that they spend it at the tracks where state and federal government levy heavy taxes Top of the Luck to V Ashford V OLNEY C ASHFORD one of the brilliants of the younger coaches in this particular sector of the college athletic realm will be shoving off for Chapel Hill N C come April 22 He has been commissioned a lieutenant junior grade in

him "I am grateful for your co-operation with our athletic endeavors" he says "Coaching in this section has been a pleasure I'll miss my friends and I'll miss The Star and its sports columns" It is no stretch of anyone's imagination to say that intercollegiate athletic competition in this area will miss Volney Ashford He has had good teams and he has proved himself a true sportsman winning or losing so a lot of us will be missing him too even though some of us didn't see so much of him personally C E Mc Baum TOUGH LUCK HORSES THERE WILL BE JUST AS MANY FOR THIS YEAR'S DERBY Occupation Chop Chop and Red Sonnet Are Among Those to Be Considered This Year 1mmmNie (By the Associated Press) New YORK April 13—Every year there's a set of hard luck guys and gals among the 3-year-old gallopers who have to sit home and read about the Derby in their favorite newspapers and then come along to raise quite s ruckus later in the season Something usually has happened to the colts in this set to keep them out of action early in the spring Among the fillies it's usually because they're smart enough to realize that carrying 126 pounds a mile and a quarter is strictly a man's job even if it is for the big end of $'15000 which would interest any lady Down through the years there have been a lot of these tough-luck lads—Man o' War in 1920 and Equipoise in 1932 and the great Sysonby and Fair Play in naught-five and naught-eight and most recently Stagehand Earl Sande's headache five years ago This year the set offers possibilities of lighting up a lot of fireworks before the season's out There's Occupation for instance and Chop Chop the hard-hitting little fellow who moved up into the Derby picture by taking the endurance handicap last fall and Red Sonnet the tall chestnut whose speed made lightning strike at Jamaica last spring before he was hurt Among the young ladies are three who split up most of the votes for the 2-yearold championship of last year— Askmenow Pair Weather and Good Morning—as well as the Flying Our Page who probably was as classy as any of 1em She won her only two outings—including the classic Spin-away stakes at Saratoga—then popped a splint ALL HAVE LEG TROUBLE All three of the colts have had more leg trouble than a chorus line with housemaid's knee Mrs John Marsch's Occupation was the "Futurity Kid" of 1942 He won the Arlington Washington park Belmont and Keene land breeders futurities and piled up a bank roll of 6192355—more than any other 2- year-old ever has pocketed In two futurities he made Count Fleet holler "uncle" and they figured to have a gaudy in this year's Derby Then he suffered an injury and had to be withdrawn Red Sonent is a rapid rangy flier from George Widener's farm They thought so little of him at first that he was entered in a 63500 claiming race He romped home by seven lengths in track record time so his handlers changed their minds in a hurry He won three in a row before he too came down with a leg ailment Recently Bill Mulholland put him back in training and the word is he's a "whizzer" again Chop Chop was picked up by Mrs Barclay Douglas for 64100 as a yearling and didn't get to the races until last fall In his first out he was given some rough bumps by some of the other horses bolted and crashed through the fence putting both himself and his jockey in the hospital Five weeks later he started all

GOSSIP Toledo's New Manager Rated A Good Bench Strategist For Five Years Jack Fournier Was One of the Most Dan gerous Hitters in the National League When Ile Per formed for the Brooklyn Dodgers and Since 1937 Ile has Been in the St Louis Browns' System BASESALL fans whose mem-' ory of the game goes back a quarter of a century will recall the slugging exploits of young Jack Fournier during his stands with the Chicago White Sox1 St Louis Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers but particularly during 11 lb hey-day with the Dodgers It's the same Jack Fournier older of course but Just as much of a scrapper as he ever was who comes to the American Association this season in the role of pilot of the Toledo Mud Hens When Fred Haney resigned as skipper of the Hens last fall Fournier was one of the men given serious consideration for the position However a desire for a playing pilot by the St Louis Brown ownership turned the tide in favor of Ralph Winegarner As soon as it became apparent that Winegarner could not accept the position on account of his draft status the Browns immediately turned to Fournier who has been one of their highly successful scouts His selection came so close to the start of the Mud Hens spring training season in Athens O that it was necessary for the new pilot to make the trip by plane with a stopover at the Brown base in Cape Girardeau Mo in order to be on hand for the opening sessions A LTHOUGII born in Michigan1 Fournier started his baseball career on the Pacific coast Ills first' major league experience came in 1913 when he was purchased by the Chicago White Sox He was with that club for four years as first baseman and outfielder Returned to the Pacific coast he was grabbed by the New York Iran kees for the 1918 season but failed to stick and finishtd the season in the Coast league Ready for the big time he came up to the St Louts Cardinals in 1910 MORE SPEED FOR THE GAME Billy Evans hsues a Manual for Southern League (Be the Associated Press) AMANTA April 13—Showman Joe Engel bead man of the Chattanooga baseball club who rune his team like a 3-ring circus thumbed idly through a brand new manual from Southern association headquarters and grinned 1 "Yes sir" spoke Joe "This la the stuff 'Why it's Just what we need to pep up the old ball game I guess you might call it the 'daily dozen delay destroyers'" Engel referred to a set of twelve wartime instructions for players and umpires authored by a veteran base-bailer Billy Evans serving his first year as president of the Southern association Baseball believes Evans needs speed and hustle The 59-year-old former big league umpire who also served several years as general manager of the Cleveland Indians thinks it's the ump's job to help keep things rolling along and he says so in his manual Under the new rules Southern association umpires will fire new balls directly to the pitcher rather than hand them to the catcher for 'round' the infield tossing There will be no long conferences at the home plate when umpires go on the diamond to start the game And even arguments will be streamlined When there is a dispute over the umpire's decision say the rules no players other than those involved shall take part in the die Clisa1011 And when a pitcher is the last man out retiring his side he's to go directly to the pitching mound instead of returning to the bench SIMMONS

to Brooklyn before the start of the 1923 campaign and it was here that his greatest playing wan done For five years he was a regular with the Dodgers Ile has a lifetime batting average of more than 300 and was one of the great sluggers of the National loop for several newtons He hit 343 for St Louis in 1921 and two years later in Brooklyn clouted for an impressive 351 figure In 1924 he hit 333 and in 192 3 boosted his average to 350 FOURNIER was noted as a long hitter with home runs one of his specialties For three years in succession he drove more than 100 tallies across the platter for the Brooklyn club His last major league connection was with the Boston Braves In 1927 he retired from active play to become manager of the Newark club of the International league In 1937 he became a member of the St Louis Browns' system and was named the manager of the Johnstown club The next season he devoted his time to scouting and held that position until the Marti of the 1942 campaign at which time St Louis dispensed with its entire' scouting Mall As a scout a developer of young players and a bench strategist Fournier stands high in the estimation of President G E Gilliland of the Mudhens and of President Donald Barnes and his associates in St Louis Many of the best players with the Browns today were discovered by Fournier in his tAmrs of the country while several of the most promising youngsters with Toledo this spring are Jack's boys Another proof of his ability to teach baseball is seen in the fact that he was baseball coach at the University of California in 1934 and
