"Robb is the kind, of gentleman we, like to have, on our umpiring staff," said HarridKe after hiring Bebb yesterday via long distance telephone. at his home in Cedar Grove, N. J. "We needed, another umpire and considered Robb a goad one." Robb, slicked out in full dress as an American League umpire, which includes a suit coat instead of just a blue shirt as worn in the National, will make his debut in his new job in tht Whitt Sox- Boston Bed Sox same it Comij- key Park Tuesdty night. . Robb was accused of shaving Manager Eddie Stahky. of tht St Louis Cjrdinili during a game at Cincinnati April 22.

Solly Htmiis, who started the altercation by tossing his bat in the air when h« was called out an strikes,- was fined S25. 1 Robb resigned M»nday. ' "I am happy to be back in baseball," Hobb laS yesterday after Harridge put him im the pay- rail. "When Mr. Ha,rridge approached me with ^n offer I was so choked up I couldn't talk for a minute or two." Before taking action, Harridfe phoned Gilei and established that Hobb was a free agent--a formal step in a gentlemen's agreement between the two leagues in negotiations of this type. " .

Vet tht baitball picture has to brightened--temporarily at least-that Calvin Griffith, vice president of tht Senators, aid today: "Wt h»vt some young pitchers on our farm clubs who are com- iar along fine, We've been figuring all along that we should have a chance for the pennant next year.'' Griffith paused, and then took the .plunge. "You never can tell," he said "We might even have a chance this year." All. of which is startling talk, even granting that the source is prejudiced, when you recall that less than a month ago experts voting in an Associated Press poll picked the Senators for eighth place. the club got only 162 points, the lowest of any team in the majors.
