Steve McWilliams, aophomore left-hander who'd been double- tough all spring, lo*t hia stuff and his control in the cold wind, was touched for four solid base-hits, walked three and allowed seven runs to tie the score, 11-11, in the fifth. . : .

The Yankees figure to nave a tougher time than the "wolld" champions from Brooklyn simply because it looks like a one-team race in the National League and a five-team scramble in the American. The Yankees will have a rougo. lime disposing of the Red Sox, Indians. White Sox and Tigers as each league comes up with three divisions.

By LEO H. FETERSEX CLEARWATER, Fla. — TIP — Mayo Smith, manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, admits he has his problems this spring, but insists he will field a better ball club than he did last season. He figures the Phillies will have better pitching and a stronger bench and that "with a few breaks here and there we could go all the way." Happy with his fourth place finish last season in his first year as a major league pilot, Smith isn't counting the chickens before they hatch. "But we might surprise them all," he predicted. Then he con- ceded he would like to have a regular right fielder and a second baseman. Smith wants to keep Granny Hamner at short, where he wants to play, so that leaves it up to Bobby Morgan or Ted Kazanski to play second. Kazanski, one of the many high-pricee bonus players on the Phillies "can do the job in the field," according to Smith, "but we still don't know whether he can hit major league pitching." If Kaianski should falter, Morgan, who can play any infield position except first base, is ready to take over. As for right field, he has the veteran Wally Westlake, Glen Gor- bus, FranWe Baumholtt, and Jim. GreengTMS. It will be Richie .Ashburn, the Murray -Go • Round (Continued From Page Eight) Naturally the big meet* were in the East, one in particular being the annual Penn K*l»yv Are there really more readers in that section, or does the staff actually believe those farcial tales about Texans' fast stop-watches? II 51 is tailing the Incomparable Eddie, who turned in a rattlin' 4fiJ» 440-yard leg on Texas' Freshman mile-relay Saturday at Fort Worth, it serves 'em right. TiMfiHin: "They Looked For Spread" National League hatting champion, in center field and the hard-hitting Dei Ennis in left Stan Lopata, the converted catcher will be at first, with Hamher at short and Willie Jones at third. Should Hamner have to move to second, Boy Smalley would play short. Andy Seminick will be the No. 1 catcher with the veteran Gus Niarhos and another bonus player,' Joe Lonnett, vying for' the reserve spot Smith will carry only two catchers for he always can shift Lopata back to his favorite spot. Another bonus Md, Mickey Mice- lotta, will be kept as. an infield, reserve. He's a good glove man, but not too much at the,plate. Smith has singled out six men as 'the fellows who will start the season as my starting pitchers." First off there is Robin Roberts, whose record proves he is the best pitcher in baseball. Behind him will be Curt Simmons, who appears to have whipped the shoulder and arm. trouble which plagued him last season; Kerm Wehmeier, the big righthander; -Marry Dickson, the veteran with the old "gas house gang spirit;" Saul -Rogovin, who won five and lost three with the club last season after being obtained from Baltimore; and Ron Negray, with a 4-3 record with the Phillies after they purchased Mm from St. Paul. PASADEXA head-man, Stoney Phillip*, gays his boys did not yell and scream, stomp their' feet «nd generally take over Lee Gymnasium, last ba*ketb*Jl Mason, as all oMcmMcd Gander partisans thought they did. He blames that for getting, the Ganders ready for the 28-HVictory over his powerful Eagles last October . . . We'd say it was more of an.8-7 chant'than noise-making. Carter Lorna*, Pasadena's ftkarti basketball mentor, tays, "Well not be too potent this winter, but should have a good team the year after." With one of DUtrlct MA'i better B-teams, fine reserves, in- cluding incomparable Bert Coan, and great junior-high players moving in, Carter's quintet could arrive ahead of schedule.
