I Versatility Is Cards' Forte, Says Slanky By EDME STANKY * ; . ., . BT EDME BTANKY (Muufcr St. Lents Cardinals) St. Petersburg; F!a.-W)-It goes I without saying that this spring 1 training season will be tht most important for me in my enti carter. I must make up my mind hurry regarding many thing First I've got to decide on certa portions on the Cardinals. The I've got to decide where I'd i most valuable--on the bench or second base. I would like to play. I feelgre and have kept myself in shape. feel sure that I'm far fro through, even though the gentle men who sit .behind the typewri ers have had me washed up fo the past three years. HI say this, however, I'm nc going to be the Cards' secoh baseman simply because I'm th manager. I'll be in there fightin for a regular job. If somebody ca beat me out, swell. He's got th job. On Baie 154 Times If the records are correct I col lected 127 walks and got 127 hit last season. That means I got o base more than ,250 times. Tim also means'somebody will have t hustle'46 beat me out of a job. If after several weeks, I be come convinced'that I can't pla regular anymore, and that the clui would j be stronger without me ii the lineup, I will become a bencr manager. If I do play second, Hec Schoendienst, a very versatile fel low might be able to fit in eithe in the outfield or at first .base I'm quite sure Red would do a re. spectable job no matter where you put him. You know, with me leading of and Red following, the Musial all- stars ought to get some runs for the pitchers, and the man miglr lead the league in runs batted in this year I see where Leo Durocher predicts a two-team race between his Giants and the Dodgers. Well, he'_ going to be fooled. I think it is go- Ing to'be a four or five-club race with the Cardinals, Phillies and maybe the Braves in it all the way. We have enough good players to win. Right now all I know regarding my lineup is that Gerry Staley and Cliff_Chambers are going to be starting pitchers. But I'know we have good ball players in Stan Musial, Enos Slaughter, Schoendienst, Tommy Glavlano, Solly Hemus, Bill Johnson, Wally Westlake and Del Rice. All of our players with a few exceptions are versatile. They can play anywhere. That is our forte- versatility.

Not one has succeeded. Despite this bleak record, the 22-year old Harvard senior from Englcwood, N. J., is an overwhelming favorite to accomplish his task. Button lias been winning for so long, however, that another victory for him won't cause much excitement in this Norwegian capital which is still buzzing about another American star.-- Andrea Mead Lawrence. Andy was as good as beaten in the first 150 yards of her first run over the perilous 578-meter course which lunges down the rock- strewn side "of Hocdkleiva Mountain. At a relatively simple spot she fell. She bounded up and plunged headlong down the course. Her recovery was so amazing that she finished in tht fourth best time for the first run. In the slalom race, where the winning margin usually is in fractions of a second, one spill can mean almost certain failure. Firm Disbelief Mrs. Lawrence showed a firm disbelief in this view. On her sec- md run she whizzed, down the course in uir amazing 1:03.4, two till Siconds faster than anybody else -did all afternoon. Her total Ime for the two runs was 2:10.6 and Ossi Reichert of Germany, the irst round leader, failed to catch ier by eight-tenths of a second. Her second victory in these Winer games confirmed what 'the experts have been saying--Andy is he world's best woman skier. No ther American woman ever has seen able to make that claim.

Reg. $39.50 to $45.00 The Arkansas Razorbacks found the going just as rough on the first day as they are liable to find it on any succeeding day as spring football drills opened yesterday. Coach Otis Douglas raced his men through a two and a half hour workout in his program designed to, "separate the men from the boys.", Seventy players were nn hand to get in on the practice session which included a full schedule of work ranging from Individual drills to a full-scale scrimmage. The coaches divided the squad into' four groups, working, t h e linemen on blocking, the backs on play assignments and ball- handling, and the ends on pass patterns and receiving, The most distinguishing feature of the first day of drills was the intentness with. which the players performed their tasks and the obviously more familiar and confident manner in I which they ran through the exercises. This is Coach Douglas' t h i r d spring workout and 25 members of his squad are lettermen with 12 players entering their third spring practice 'along with Douglas. All of which lends a better knowledge of the Douglas system of play and the Douglas psychology to the players. Today dawned bright and clear and Couch'_ Douglas planned another full practice session. He and his staff members have their fingers crossed on the weather which has been extremely good this winter.

Maglie reportedly has been seeking a $40,00r contract while the New York front office made a final offer of $35,000. Manager Leo Durocher is well satisfied with the early progress being made by those players already on hand. The key to his lineup and batting order seems, to hinge on whether center fielder Willie Mays Is called into the service. Mays ha^ been awaiting induction orders for several weeks.
