Derringer Sees Better Season And Pennant Thinks It Will Be Reds Against Yankees Though He Prefers Redsox. SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 16. UP) Paul Derringer looked forward to the National League pennant race today with the confidence of a pitcher who has a signed contract in his pocket and feels a lot of winning games in His arm. The Cincinnati Reds dicLi t give the big right - hander a chance to pull his usual hold out act this winter. Paul Derrinerr. "They called me in the day before the season closed, put a blank contract in front of me and asked me to fill it out. I did. Thay said it was okeh, so that was that, Derringer explained. Itefuses to Estimate Victories. 'This is the first year I haven't held out, but what could be tairer than the way the Reds treated me? Nothing. And a man can't hold out under those circumstances." "I expect to win as many games as l possibly can. I wouldn't at tempt any estimate at the number," ne said, ducking a direct answer. "But I will say. that I feel better and actually am in better shape tnan l was last year when I under went a rather serious' operation. I'm definitely okeh now." Thinks Y ankees Will in. "I'm confident that the Reds will be in the race for the pennant," Derringer continued. "In the American I think it will be the Yankees again, though I'd personally prefer a Boston Redsox- Cincinnati world series to any other." The pitcher said Bill McKechnie is "the greatest manager any play er ever worked under." "Between him and Mr. (Warren G.) Giles, general manager, we have the best administrative staff in either league," Derringer boasted. 'There isn't a player on the team who wouldn't do anything in his power for either of them." The conversation turned to Der ringer's teammate, Johnny Vander Meer, who pitched two consecutive no-hit games. "Johnny's future progress is en-irely up to him," was the comment. He's capable of winning 30 games, but I could talk from now to etern ity, write volume after volume on what should be done, and then the pitcher wouldn't be helped by it a bit."

It seems that when Aurie became the H o met coach, he had ma,de the bets that he would never play another game of major hockey again. . . . Like his players, Coach Aurie is also subject to recall by the Wings, and the wires early last week hummed the news that Larry was called back for one game. . . . He appeared in the Detroit lineup last Tuesday night against the Cana-diens and was happy over the fact that he scored one goal, until his former pals reminded him that he owed for the hats. . . .
