LOUIS (U.R) Strange-talking but warm-hearted Miguel (Mike) Gonzalez, probably the only man ever to call a ball player a lady and get away with it, has resigned as coacTi of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals in the hour of his greatest triumph. Gonzalez, who as "hird base coach of the Cardinals was credited with the daring strategy which permitted Enos Slaughter to score the winning run against Boston in the final game, left his post to manage a team in the Cuban Winter League. OWNER SAM BREADON said that he deeply regretted the decision of his coach to leave the team "We'd like to see him come back at any time and I hope he will," Iireadon said.

His misuse of .it frequently led to amusing situations. IV THE RECENT climactic series with the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field late in the season, the Cardinals lost a vital run at the plate when Stan Musial swept around third base and was thrown out with ease by Dodger Center Fielder Carl Furillo. Gonzalez asked Musial in the dressing room after the game why he had gone on in. "I thought you said 'go, go,' so I did," Musial replied. Ganzalez explained then that he had said "no, no." THE FIFTY-SIX - YEAR - OLD Gonzalez broke in with the 1912 Braves as a catcher. After a year of seasoning in the minors he returned to the National League where he played with the Cincinnati Reds, Cardinals, and New York Giants as catcher and first baseman until 1921. Later he spent several seasons in the American Association with St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Columbus. He also had one four-year stretch with the Chicago Cubs as catcher from 1926 through 1929. In 1931 he returned to the Cardinal chain and after two seasons as Red Bird catcher played the 1933 season at the Colurnbus farm club. He took over as coach in 1934 and served continuously until the current season. PHONE.. Clearly) Chief Calls Loss Costly But Cardinal Boss Turns Cold Shoulder NEW YORK (AP) Presi dent Ford Frick, of the National League, has been demanding that his club owners either try to win the annual All-Star Game or drop it. The St. Louis Cardinals' victory in the World Series supplies him with ' some welcome ammunition. The Cards, by beating the Boston Red Sox in four of seven games, dispelled any notion that the American League was in a lofty class by itself. Their demonstration of class came too late to do the senior circuit any good this season. IX OTHER WORDS, the fearful beating administered to the National Leaguers in the All-Star Game at Boston badly damaged the loop's prestige, in Frick's opinion. It probably cost many a dollar at the box office the remainder of the year. That it was an unfair test of strength was demonstrated by the Cards in the last 10 days. "Let's either play the All-Star Game to. win or drop it entirely," Frick urged Owner Sam Breadon, of the St. Louis club, after watching the Red Birds take the clincher, 4 to 3. "All it does is hurt us. "HERE YOUR CLUB, which had to go through a playoff to win in our league, outplayed a team that ran away and hid from the rest of the American League. Yet ever since midseason they've been talking as if we didn't belong in the same class with them. I'm tired of taking it." Although he didn't tell the Card owner so in as many words, it was obvious that Frick regarded Breadon as one of the . chief contributors to his misery. No Harry Brecheen, who scored three triumphs over the Red Sox, or Howie Pollet, the league's leading pitcher at the time, participated in the early July debacle at Boston. FRICK POINTED all this out to Breadon and asked him to lend a helping hand in the next All-Star tussle, but Sam remained unimpressed. "The World Series is the big thing," he demurred, "That's the one we want to win. We can't afford to take a chance and let one of our good pitchers work in the All-Star Game when it might cost us a game." Arcaro Rides Stake Winner Despite Spill NEW YORK (U.R) Veteran Jockey Eddie Arcaro wrote another courageous chapter into turf- dom's records on the opening day of Jamaica's fall meeting. He came back from a track hospital after a serious spill to win the $15,000 Correction Handicap aboard C. V. Whitney's Reece. Riding Stefan in the fourth race, Arcaro sought to maneuver his horse through a hole in the backs t retch but his mount was boxed in. When he tried to pull up the gray gelding, Arcaro tumbled to the track as the field flashed by. The Hhirty-one-year-old handicap veteran from Newport, Ky., got to his feet and then collapsed. He was rushed to an emergency hospital by ambulance. Doctors diagnosed his injuries as a bruised head and arm, but Arcaro insisted on returning to the track. RECCE, a filly, broke slowly, but when Arcaro asked her for speed, the daughter of Mahmoud responded and was going away at the finish of the six-furlong sprint Athene was second by a length and Aladear third in the - field of 10 fillies and mares. Recce was well supported by the crowd of 21,636 who watched Arcaro fall with mixed emotions. Some booed when he came back in the stake race, while others cheered. He had everyone's support when he brought Recce to the winner's circle for 'the $6.40 payoff. Arcaro,, who has been booed often this season whether he won or lost, will leave soon for California. He will ride the L. B. Mayer horses. New Fall STETSON HATS Are now being shown 10. I250 15. ROESINK'S 38 Mich. Ave. opposite City Hall -IfflAHim IFAILILIIMG?'
