Liebold and Many Others in Majors Last Year Out Now SOME WILL MANAGE TJy Central Press Hank Gowdy. Rube Benton. Joe Oeschger, Tom Griffith. Harry Hooper, Steve O'Neill these are only a few of the familiar figures who will be missing from the major league line-ups when the curtain goes up on the new baseball season. Iast winter saw the passing from the big-time of a flock of well-loved vets. Hank Gowdy who was tuning up with the Giants just a year ago, is now with Columbus in the American Association, as manager. Washington turned adrift Bob Veach, '"Nemo" Libold and Allan Itussell. Veach will be remembered as one of the Detroit Tigers' hardest hitters when he played in the outfield with Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford. He'll be with Gowdy at Columbus this year. : Sox Relense Hooper The Chicago White Sox sent a re-! lease notice to Harry Hooper making ! him a free agent. Hooper, with I'uf-I fy Lewis and Tris Speaker, formed j the greatest outfield in the American I League when they played together with the world champion Boston Red Sox. y Cvengros, a midget left hander, and Outfielder K4sh were also sent to minor league clubs by Collins, but either or both may come back as they are comparatively young, and simply need more seasoning. Steve O'nelll played his last American League game with the Yankees. In 1920 he was at his best as the Cleveland Indian's catcher. The Indians won their first American League pennant and world championship that year largely because of the splendid battery work of Stanley Coveleskle and O'Neill. During the winter Cleveland got rid of Al Walters, whom they got from Boston to try to replace O'Xeill. He goes to the Coast League. Shanks, Johnnon Gone Howard Shanks. Krnie Johnson. Fred Hoffman and Mike McN'ally. consigned to minor league clubs by Htiggins, probably will not return. McNally threatens to quit baseball to go into business rather than play outside of the big circuit. Chick Fewster, set adrift by Cleveland, Is making so much money selling real estate that he's going to retire. Ike Boone and Doc Protho were sentenced to Pacific Coast League clubs by the Red Sox. although Boone was among the most powerful batsman in the American League in l:'25. 1'rotho covered third base for the Senators year before last with fair results. American League umpires will not be compelled to watch the alleged ''doctoring' of the ball by Dave Pant'orth. eccentric southpaw, who puzzled them for two years. Danforth has been released to the American Association club by the Sf Louis Browns. Iteds Released Four The Cincinnati Reds have released four noted players. Waiter Holke. Joe Schultz. Jimmy Caveney and ! Rube Benton. Holke and Benton once i played under McGraw. Schultze wa a shuttle cock among National League managers until Hendricks engaged him last year, while Caveney was sent to Seattle. Brooklyn fans no longer will see Pitchers Oeschger and Hubbel, Short stops Ford and Mitchell and Third Baseman Tiernev in action at Ehbets field. They have passed out of the National League probably for ail time. The Phillies have ordered Louis 1 Fonseca and Walter Betts to minor league clubs, while the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals have accorded similar treatment to Outfielder Tom Griffith and Pitcher Leo Dickerman.

March 1 4. As might be expected, every man in the Pirate training camp expects the team to repeat in the National League race this year. All of them predict the Bucs will take the lead with the ttarting gun and never falter. Manager Bill McKechnle Isn't quite so confident as the rest of the crew, although he figures the Pirates to repeat. His doubts are due to his fears that the over-confidence may trip up the boys. Over-confidence, he knows, has ruined better ball clubs than Barney Dreyfus has ever owned. With Fred Clarke he Is working to make the team realize that It must win on what it does this year not what It got by with last season. Hurlers May Slip Where the Pirates are most likely to slip if they do is on hurling. Only Vic Aldridge an Ray Kremer can be counted upon as mainstays, it appears now. Lee Meadows, who did valiant work last year until the leaves began to fall, must show that a strained arm muscle has recovered) Kmil Yde, southpaw ace, who wobbled last season after a great inaugural year, must prove that he has recovered his effectiveness. and Johnny Morrison, who hasn't done a great deal of dependable hurling in the last two years, also has a confe-baek act before him. Babe Adams maybe termed through he's 44 now and John Oldham, Tom Sheehair and Bernard Coluton, other holdovers from last season, are uncertain quantities, although Sheehan feels that If he's given the opportunities he'll be worth his meal ticket. Rookies !Vot Impressive Of the rookie candidates for pitching Jobs not very much can be said. Three of them Joe Brown, Lou Koupal and Don Songer, the latter a southpaw went to camp with the club last spring. All were turned back for further seasoning and did well with minor league outfits. Of the trio. Brown seems the best Kissinger, Crowder, Cook. Tierson. Brower and Phil Morrison, brother of John, other pitching candidates, are not likely to remain on the Pirate rosrer. Klsewhere, the team Is what it was last season, if not better. Much Is expected of Hal Rhyne and Paul Wa- ner. who looked so good to Barney Dreyfus that he knocked a reputation for stinginess cold by giving San Francisco J100.000 for them. Waner is only 22, but his brief diamond ex perience snows he Is a natural hitter. Coming to the San Francisco club wunout-'previous league experience, Waner began clouting the ball vigorously. His average never fell helow the .3G0 mark, and he fielded his po sition, right field, in fine fashion. Waner Alw First Ilaseinnn TVaner is also a capable first-baseman. As the initial cushion is a spot where Buccaneers are weak, if he is unable ho oust any of the outfield regulars, he will be used there if George Grantham and Stuffy Mclnnls show signs of wabbling. At any rate, he promises to be a valuable addition to the team's secondary strength, if nothing else. " Rhyne is a candidate for Eddie Moore's Job at second, but It is not probable he will succeed in dislodging mm. niiyne is said to be a fancy defense man. His fielding was of sensational brand with the Seals last season, hut his swatting wasn't up to a high standard. When the hbt days of the season came Rhyne wilted. If he can overcome such weakness he may make the grade, but the present outlook Is that he will be stacked in the pile of reserve materia! for use at either shortstop or second base if occasion demands. Ranting Another Candidate Johnny Rawlings, veteran of numerous pennant scrimmages, is another candidate for Moore's job. He was rushed to second base late last summer when the Buccos showed signs of crumbling and steadied the infield. He continued his classy work until a broken ankie pulled him up short.

Nothing need be said of short and third base, where Wright and "Pie" Traynor hold sway. The camp got a scare the other day when "Pie" turned an ankle. Gloom was thick until the doctors said he'd be all right in a few days. Outfield, Catcher Are Okny For the outfield McKechnie has three aces from last season in Clyde Barnhart, Max Carey and Hazen Cuy-ler, with the aforementioned Waner In reserve. Earnhart is the slowest of the trio, but the healthy wallop packed In his bludgeon makes up for his lack of flcetness. Carson Bigbee, another wingfoot, is ready to fiil re-brilliant work now that he has relief roles and is expected to do more covered from an attack of sinus trouble that afflicted him since 1922. If McKechnie gets the pitching, he'll be the boy the other seven teams are going to have to beat. Coal! Coal! We handle all grades of Coal, including, "Mt.

March 14. Ernie Kev-ers, the blond football star from Iceland Stanford, Saturday proved his mettle on the baseball filed when he pitched to big leaguers for the first time and came through in good shape, although his team failed to win. The Brooklyn Dodgers, opponents of the St. Louis Browns, won the contest, 9 to S, at Clearwater, Fla. Manager Rogers Hornsby led his St, Louts Red Birds' second team, to a 6 to 3 victory at Snn Antonio, where the home town Bears were victims. The showing of Pitchers Huntzinger, Bell, and Miller was en-couraK:ng to the pilot. The first team defeated San Antonio, 5 to 2. Two Ohio teams, Cleveland and Cincinnati, have fat sick lists among: players. Carl Yowle, southpaw fling-er of the Cleveland Indians, developed a sore wins: and will be out of tvork for a few days. A scarcity of catchers, caused by a postponement of a practise session of the Cincinnati Reds, because Bubble Hargrave is recovering from influenza, and Suke-forth is still in bed. At Los Angeles, the Chicago Cubs started their home rim smashing- tactics with Hack Wilson and Cliff Heathcote doing the dirt in an S to 3 victory over the Hollywood Pacific Coast league club. Heathcote got a homer and three singles, scored twice and drove in two runs in five times up. Wilson's homer followed singles by Adams and Heathcote.

Central Pre Sport Editor TAMPA. Fla., March 14. Archie Compston. British professional golf champion and one of the greatest links' figure In Europe, will remain in this state this coming summer as a professional at one of the clubs dotting the landscape. I have this on good authority. The American golfing fraternity will welcome Compston. He won Instant popularity with his personality, his general demeanor on the links, and his daring style of play.
