Dressen Does Not Feel Job Depends On Flog This Year Brooklyn - (/P - Think Chuck Dressen won't be back ai Brooklyn manager in 1953 if the Dodgers lose the National League pennant this year? Eome do. Not Chuck, though. \ "I don't think I'm on »ny spot," he said today before departing for the Yankee Stadium where the Brooks were to hook up with the New York Yankees. "I think we're going to win, but I don't think it's a matter of having to. "The way I figure it is that I won more games than that other fellow Burl Shotton. His club won 89 in 1950, and last year we won 97, counting that one in the playoff. I don't know how the front office figures it, but I hope they look at it my way. "I expect 96 will be enough to win this time. It usually ii and.! expect we'll win 96." Dresscn's team seems to be completely set, and he has attached only one "if" to his predic- CHUCK DRESSEN tions of a pennant. That concerns Clem Labine, a young fellow^ivho joined the Dodgers late last sea- six I He figures Labine ought to take , up the slack left by the departure , of 20-game winner Don New: combe to the service. 1 ! "If Labine's arm is okay all ··] year, he'll win as many as New- ''; | combe," theorized the Brook skip- ° I per. "He'll, be even better than i Newcombe because he'll pitch more often. I'll be able to send him in to relieve. Newcombe didn't like to relieve." Besides the expected 20 from Labine, Dressen figures on another 20-garne season Jrom Preacher Roe, his ace, 16 from Carl Erskine and another 15 from Ralph Branca. That makes 71 triumphs if they all come through as expected. The rest of the staff-flippers like Chris Van Cuyk. Joe Black, Ben Wade, Billy Loes and John Rutherford--will have to pick up the other 25 victories. He's particularly high on Wade, who has been in and out of the majors for several years. Ndional League Withdraws Sympathy For Durocher's Giants Now That Lip Has Elliott To Strengthen Outfield By The AMOclated Prew . Seven National League managers were thinking that, well, in four games with minor league, squads. The Philadelphia A's stopped Greensboro of the Carp- maybe they could spare a little i Una League, 9-8, and the Chicago sympathy for Leo Durocher, the White Sox had to go 10 innings harassed manager of the champion New York Giants. He had lost Monte Irvin and Willie Mays, two-thirds of his regular outfield, and what manager can afford that sort of a blow? But thinking it all over today, they went back to feeling sorry for themselves-- all except Brooklyn's Chuck Drqsscn, who still thinks the Dodgers will win the pot. Not only does Durocher have Bob Elliott to take Irvin's spot, but he has decided to give Dick Wakefield. who has played in just about all four corners of the country, a tryout. This will be the last one for the former University of Michigan bonus baby. He was turned down by several other. major league teams. Wakefield A Question The way Durocher has been waving his m a g i c wand, it wouldn't be a surorise to see WakeJield come through. Although the Lip is counting on his newest acquisition for pinch-hitting chores at . the moment, Dick could fill May's shoes if he looks good. He's been pounding the ball with authority and has banged out three hits in his four trips to the platp, including two in yesterday's 4-0 triumph over the Cleveland Indians. The Giants had been taking regular pastings from the Tribe in f'.eir cross-country tour, and the New York win was only the third in 14 games between the two teams. ^ But it was a noteworthy one at that for the Giants. Larry Janse'n and Max Lanier. a couple of Durocher's ton elbowmen, demonstrated midseason form in white- washin- the hard-hitting Indians. Jansen went the first six innings and turned back the first 10 Indians to face him. Lanier finished up. Pull One From Fire The Dodgers managed to pull one out of the fire, overcoming the Washington Senators, 4-3, after trailing, 2-0, after three innings. Starter Chris Van Cuyk was the winner. Bobo Newsom. at 43, before whipping the AtlanFa Crackers of the Southert) Assp'cii- tion, 10-9. The world champion New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers weren't so fortunate. The Yanks dropped a 6-2 verdict to the Baltimore Orioles of the Internationa! League, and the Tigers '' were trimmed by the Chattanooga lookouts of the Southern Association, 6-3.

Giants Need Pole To Put ^Pennant On New York-yP)-Anybody got an extra flagpole they're not using? The New York Giants have a National League pennant, but no place to hang it. A hurricane in 1950 destroyed the flagpole in centerfield in the Polo Grounds. A new one was built, but it's only strong enough to hold Old CJlory. So when the season opens Tuesday, the Giants will fly their pennant on the roof behind home platt--where it'll be almost out of sight.
