Ififi 1-2, Buffalo N i Non-tiilei Another View The same follow who asked that one wanted to know why Happy doesn't stay in his office and hand down interpretations of the postwar rule;; that aren't very well understood by the club owners who made them. . .seems bo's always Uaveling around the country trying to interest ir.ore boys in playing baseball while Ihe gibehdaacne for most clubs this s)v;ing is that they already nave to many play- eis. . .but, of course, Ihe commissioner might be taking a long-range view. Q. Without A. Chandler already is suffering because he had lo give up his "rooting piivilogos." Now, is a seven- year contract at $.10,000 enough compensation for being deprived of opinions, too . . .Isn't there .something in the constitution lhal says a guy can sound off when Me feels like il?. . .and if the baseball commissioner, admitting thai il'.-. only his personal opinion, can't say thai lie likes or dislikes some- ihmg about baseball ,wiio can?. . . one argument is that Judge Landis established the commissioner's pro roga'.ives: to "police" bai-oball. pu-venl gambling, do away with ifovcring-up and other practices i that deprive a player of a fair shake and to crack down on any- Ithing "detrimental to baseball.". . [Chandler is the first to say .he's | no Landis and doesn't intend.to be. 'So is there anything in his contract that says lie has to follow Ihe judge's foolsteps and can't establish a few prerogatives of his own?. . .okay, we're .just asking. Tl's another guy who: asked: , "if Chandler thinks prices are too high, why didn't he cut thai $720 tariff for the World Series?" By JOE REICHLER New York, Feb. H ---i/l'i— Unless .Joe Gordon is kidding, lie believes he or George Slirmveixs, his rival for the regular' second base job on Ihe New York Yankees, may be traded. "What are the Yanks going to do with both of us?' 1 ciucriod Gordon yi-slciriay in Chicago where he was en route to join his mates for the trip to Panama to start spring training, "ft look:! like one 01 us will be added or moved to another position, or draw a fnt .salary for sitting on the bench." Ol coin so, linidiy anyone takes Gordon seriously. It seems inconceivable Manager Joe McCarthy would trade eiincr Gordon, voted the most valuable player in the American League in 1942 ,or Stirn- weiss, who won the league batting and base stealing lilk-s last year. It is -I'elt in baseball circles that the two will stage a red-hot light for the Keystone job, with Ihe loser moving to third base where Bill Johnson 1043 regular, is not expected back until midsummer. He is still in the army with insufficient points for a discharge. For the last two years, live volunteers have essayed the third base role without much success. Gordon said he wouldn't mind playing the hot corner as he performed at that spot some in the minors. Stirnwciss ventured no opinion, but he also has performed at third in the minors. Gordon, will start from scratch to win his old job back.but at latest official reports, Slirnweiss is still among the unsigned. It is known that Stirnweiss balked at the salary terms offered him at late as last Saturday. However, Nick Elton, last year's regular first baseman signed his contract and is among ihe 10 Yankees heading for Panama. Other baseball items: New York Giants — four more players signed on the dotted line including Pitchers Hal Schumacher, Dave Koslo and Bill Emmerich and Catcher Clyde Kluttz. Manager Mel Oil, stopping off in Jacksonville, Fla., en route I'or Miami where the Gianls begin Training Sunday, picks Ihc Cardinals. Cubs •.ind Braves as the learns lo beat for the pennant. Chicago Cubs- a total of 49 play- srs will leave in two groups on Feb. 10 and Feb. 23 for trailing at Catalina island, Jim Gallagher, .dce-presidenl announced. Broklyn Dodgers — Don Padgett, outfielder purchased at the close of the Ml season from the Cardinals, was the latest to sign lis conlracl as the Dodgers prepared to starl irainina in Clearwater, Fla. Sunday. He was discharged from the Navy recently. Detroit Tigers—President Walter 0. Briggs suggested significantly that Hank Greenberg, reported asking for $05,000 might do will lo sign for Ihe offered $-55,000. "I'm sure he hasn'l a chance in the outfield anymore as the Tigers in i Dick Wakeficld, Barney McCosky, :Pat Mullin and Dick Evers, have he best outfield in the major leagues." said Criggs. ' ; Hc'll have , to play first." Philadelphia Athletics — George McQuinn, obtained in a trade for i Dick Sicbort last fall, changed his mind about quitting baseball and decided to "play a couple of more years." He nicks Yankees to win flag easily. Cleveland Indiands — Charles (Red) Embree. righlhaiidcd .fast ball pitcher, has been released from the army and will loin Ihe first squad at Clearwater, Fla Feb. 20. Oilier player.'; to sign conlracts yesterday included outfielder Eric Tipton of the Cincinnati Rods- Pitchers Bill Brardt and Fred Clemence of Ihc Pittsburgh pj- ratcs; and out fielders Stan Went- v.el and Chet V.'ieci'orex of the Boston Braves. Wie-.-i'.orcl-; was drafted by the Braves al the end of the 1043 season after leading the American Association in baling. He was recently discharged from -the army. By the Associated Press Coach Gene Lambert of Arkansas .., plugginc a postseason playoff in event his Razorbacks and the Baylor Bears tie for the Southwest Conference basketball championship, hut Baylor athletic officials won't •liscuKs the matter at this stage. Arkansas and Baylor currently are tied for first place with seven victories and one defeat -apiece. Since the two teams already have met each other, splitting a pai rof games by identical margins, odds point to a title deadlock; They will finish in a dead heal if each wins HIP remainder of its games. Tommy Lochridfie, Baylor pub- licitv director, said: "We still have four more games So play and will nnt give our opin- 'on on a playoff for a bid lo Ihc NCAA until aflcr their conclusion." Lochridge said Baylor fell Ihe nossibility of a tide' tic was "far fetched." Lambert, chairman of the MCAA's sixth districl selection commitec. admils that the situation is an "iffy" one. He merely jelieves it would he wise to have a nlayoff arranged if a tie results. Baylor's toughest tesl comes at Auslin Saturday night, when the Bruins tackle Texas. The Bears trimmed the Longhorns at Waco, but the change of scenery may make a difference. There appears to be little difference among Arkansas' remaining loop tills. Any one of them could be a sleeper. The Porkers open a two-game set: with Texas Christian al Fayelleville tonight and play Texas A. and M. al College Slalion nexl month. The only other, conference game this week will put Ihe Aggies againsl Rice at Houston. Barbs By HAL COCHRAN One things certain not to come to those who wait is the time they lose.
