GS>- The • best judge of Lou Boudreau, the "boy wonder" manager of the Cleveland Indians, is Stanley Raymond (Bucky) Harris, the "boy wonder" manager of the Washington Senators in 1924. The best judgment of one "boy wonder" on another is that the 24- year-old manager of the Indians will get along all right. "I like the way he handles himself, said the now-greying Harris, who managed Washington to two pennants in succession in 1924-25. "He has the stuff that managers are made of. "People keep asking me if managing the club will hurt his playing. My answer is 'no* — not ri"ht away, at least. "As a matter of fact, being the manager probably will fire him up for the next couple of years, or maybe longer. He'll be trying so hard that his own playing will be good. Maybe after that first thrill of being manager wears off, he will worry about the gambles that HP is taking, hut ihat is somethin" that will come later. .......... ° Keiser And Harper Win 4^Ball Event ''Dark Horses' 7 Come Through With Big Display Of Sub-Par 1 Golf In Finals (By Th» Associated Fresjj F1 ^-' March li — Herman Keiser and Chandler Harper, t1 ra ^ y g0l ^ S Wh ° got to the finals ov " the toughest - ? ?, mi Biltmore's International four-ball tournament a relentless dispJay of birdies and pars.
