Coach Art Mansfield said John Saxer will pitch Friday's game with Bob Van Sickle working on the mound the following day. ARMY PLAYS BALL WASHINGTON - The war department wants 16,500 baseball teams organized in army camps. high life FRANK LUXEMSCO DISTRIBUTORS Phone Jackson-6640 Higbe, Wyatt Must Carry Load For Hurling Staff CLEARWATER, Fla., April 8.- (U.R)-The Brooklyn Dodgers are going to shoot the works in an effort to win the 1914 National league pennant. If they achieve their goal, it will surprise a lot of folks. They have not been very impressive in Florida and a lack of harmony on the club is evident. Already two players have been fined and another one virtually suspended. Van Mungo was fined $200 for breaking training in Havana and Hugh Casey was fined $25 for reporting four days late. Babe Phelps has not reported and the Dodgers have advised him to get into condition at his own expense. If he joins the club he must pay his own room and board until he can play, Phelps is at home in Odenton, Md., insisting he has sinus trouble. Higbe on Spot. Dixie Walker, who led the Dodgers in hitting last season with .308, has been relegated to the background. The Dodgers are blaming him for their failure to give the Reds a closer race last year, saying Walker let too many base hits fall in short center field. The pressure is heavy on Kirby Higbe fro mthe Phillies and Catcher Mickey Owen from the Cards, two players for whom the Dodgers shelled out S175,000. The Dodgers played their last varsity against the Yanks last Friday- Higbe from the Phillies and Catch--and were blanked 7-0. Catching, pitching and center field seem the Dodgers biggest question marks. With Phelps sulking the catching staff consists of Owen and Herman Franks. Reserve received Angelo Giulani has been holding out. After you've mentioned Higbe, Wyatt, Curt Davis and Hugh Casey, you've about covered the Dodger pitching squad. Fred Fitzsimmons is still around but at 40 he'll be used sparingly and mostly against the Pirates and Phils, each of whom he conquered six times last year. "Hot Potato" Luke Hamlin is in the bad graces of the Dodger bosses and may be sent away. He took a big salary cut and worked hard in Havana, but twice in exhibition starts against the Giants he's blown big leads. Higbe and Wyatt should be big winners, but the best the Dodgers can show in the way of a lefthander is Wesley Flowers, who has nothing but soft stuff. Ed Head is the best looking youngster. (Bill Swift will be No. 1 relief man. Tex Carleton, Kemp Wicker, Lee Grissom, Steve Rachunok,. Max Macon, Howard Mills and Al Sher-er are all in the question mark class. Reiser in Center. Manager Leo Durocher is certain young Pete Reiser, a great prospect, will be able to play cen-terfield. Others are not so sure. Reiser can hit, run and throw but he never played center before. Joe Medwick will play left and the veteran Paul Waner . is showing unexpectedly good form in right. Walker, Joe Vosmik and Jimmy Wasdell will be the utility men. The class of the Dodgers is centered in their infield of Dolf Ca-milli at first, Pete Coscarart at second, Peewee Reese at short and Cookie Lavagetto at third. Reese is a championship ball player and the only possible doubt about him is whether he is rugged enough to play 154 games at top speed. Manager Durocher, Lew Riggs from the Reds and Johnny Hudson will be the infield reserves.

Any sports writer who'll pick the Tigers to finish fifth is welcomed and feted in the Detroit camp. Buck Newsom, Hank Greenberg and Co., remember how terrible they looked last spring and how the sports scribes wrote them right out of ttia race and into fifth place. Then the Tigers exploded in everyone's face and won the flag. Well, around here they are all hoping lightning will strike twice in the same place. Truth to tell, the Tigers do looTc lousy, but far be it from me to relegate the Bengals to second division. They have too much power and a fair amount of pitching. This may be the age when it doesn't take great infields to win pennants. �t MeNair at Short. The fate of the Tigers may be wrapped up in Hank Greenberg's draft number. If he goes (and nobody knows what may happen), then the Tigers may fall upon evil days. The Tigers without Greenberg are like bam without eggs. The grapevine circuit insists that Greenberg will go before June, but there is no definite information to substantiate that assumption. The main change in' the Tigers is Manager Del Baker's plan to play Eric MeNair, rescued from baseball's backwash during the winter. MeNair hit only .227 with the White Sox last season and was through with that club. Desperate for infielders, the Tigers signed him and now Baker say; he'll be Detroit's shortstop. MeNair in condition and the right mental frame of mind might help the Tigers. However, he 's likely to have quite a job wresting Dick Bartell's job away from him even though Bartell hit only .233 last season. Some of the pitch- ers on the club think Bartell should be out there again. Both MeNair and Bartell were bothered by sprained ankles during spring training. Rudy York at first, Charlie Getainger at second and Pinky Higgins at third round out the infield. Gehringer has looked good this spring and put all ideas out of his head about retiring. He says he'll never be as bad in the next 10 years as he was last season. However, Frankie Croucher will be around just in case. Plenty of Pitching. Counting Greenberg on hand and playing left, the rest of the outfield will be Barney McCosky, a tremendous ball player, in center, and either Tuck Stainback or Bruce Campbell in right. Stainback and Campbell may alternate against left and right-handed pitching. The rookie star in camp is Ned Harris, a fast, hard-hitting youngster who batted .312 at Beaumont. If Greenberg goes, Harris is sure to get an outfield berth and he may crowd his .vay into the picture anyway. The first line of pitchers includes Buck (Ol' Bobo) Newsom, Schoolboy Rowe, Tommy Bridges, Johnny Gorsica, Hall Newhouser and Floyd Giebell, the kid who beat Bob Feller in the deciding game last September. Archie McKain and Al Benton are the relief men. The two top youngsters are Virgil (Fire) Trucks, and Hal White. They both have plenty on the ball. Trucks can make it if he doesn't go wild. Dizzy Trout, wearing the new contact lenses, is struggling to win a berth. Birdie Tebbetts and Billy Sullivan will do the bulk of the catching. Ed Parsons, who has just recovered from a broken finger, will be the No. 3 backstop. PATRIOTIC CLUB MIAMI BEACH -The Miami Beach team in the, Florida State league will wear white uniforms trimmed in red and blue. ' Uptown Business Men's Pin Wheel Has Annual Dinner Uptown Business Men's bowling league held its annual informal dinner at the Danish Brotherhood hall Monday night. Roy Poulsen was elected president for next season, and Carl Hansen was reelected league secretary. Dewey Christianson and Dr. J. A. Olson were co-toastmasters at the dinner introducing the various team captains, Frank Verhegge, city champion bowler and member of one of the league's teams; Mirus Kjeldsen, highest average man in the league, and members of the championship team, Christianson Brothers. A special tribute was paid at the dinner to Ralph Walters and Bill Jacobson. Walters was a member of the league but had resigned to joint the U. S. navy. Jacobson was also a member of the league but joined the U. S. army. By HENRY McLEMORE AUGUSTA, Ga., April 8.-OJ.PJ- There is a very good chance that this story you are reading now eventually will rank as one of the most novel ever written by a sports writer. I say this because it deals with Craig Wood, golfer, and yet nowhere in it will there be a reference to his hard luck in finishing second in so many important championships. There won't be a tiear-jerking paragraph in the entire business, and there won't be a mention of how Craig's pretty wife, Jackie, has had her heart all but broken 15 times by rival golfers executing some miraculous shot on the last hole to beat out her man for the title. Nowhere will there be a mention of how Craig lost this title by missing a putt no wider than an eel's forehead, or how he lost that one just because a thoughtless robin chose that exact moment when Craig was making a vital shot to chirp the first four bars of the Grand March from Aida. Wood Not Kicking. To write a story about Craig without pulling out all the stops in the heart-throb department requires a certain amount of character. The same sort of character, in fact, that a fellow would need to write a novel about Connie Mack without ever referring to him as the "tall tactician," or about Ty Cobb without labeling him as the "peerless Georgian," or about .Willie Heston without once using the word immortal. Wood, himself, was the one who suggested that I do a story about him without touching the runner-up angle. "I'd appreciate a story of another sort," Craig said as we talked after his brilliant 66 in the .opening round of the masters' invitation tournament. "I get so sick of reading sob-sister-ish stuff about myself that I don't know what to do. I seme-times wonder what the golfing public thinks about me. They must picture me as some poor, benighted old cuss, staggering around the courses of the country with a forlorn look and a broken heart. As a matter of fact, I'm a pretty lucky golfer. I have won more than my share of good championships, and you con't kick about finishing second in such things as the U. S. open, the British open, and the masters." On Craig's suggestion I looked into his past performances, and what he said was true-he has won many a good title. To name a few he has won there are the Los Angeles open, the Metropolitan open (he got that last year with the all-time 72-hole tournament score of 264), the Pasadena open (twice), the San Francisco match play open, the Augusta open, the Pine Valley open, the Australian open, the Hawaiian open, and the New Jersey PGA four times. There are a dozen others. Never Complains. After I had talked to Craig I talked to Mrs. Wood. "Honestly, the stories they write about Craig picture him as a beaten, thwarted man," she said. "Actually, he is one of the. happiest men in the world. He never has fretted or fumed about losing championships by a shot or two. We never talk golf after a round is finished. Even in those years of 1935 and 1936, when he played so badly he couldn't qualify for anything, he never grumbled or groused. He works on the theory that you get just what you deserve in golf.': If you three-putt it was your own fault. If you get an eagle it was your own skill that brought it about. "I will be so happy to read a story about him that doesn't go on about his hard luck. Because we don't feel that he has had hard luck. We feel we're awfully lucky." Thus ends my story for today. White Sox Send Squad of 35 to Jonesboro Today CHICAGO, April 8-(ff)-Billy Webb, director of the Chicago White Sox farm system, herded 35 young hopefuls on the train today for a trip to Jonesboro, Ark., for the beginning of a three-week training program.

PAUL, April 8.-(JP)-Everything happens in the current American Bowling congress tourney here and yesterday was no exception. First it was the bowlers from Flin Flon, 1,000 north of here, hitting over 1,200 in the doubles; then baseball players, golf aces, motor boat champs and even Minnesota's governor Harold Stassen created news, the latter by scoring six consecutive strikes. High Team Score. Now its Lieut. Charles Wagner, U. S. N. 58, on furlough from the Philadelphia navy yards to compete in the current ABC who hit 711 yesterday to take fifth in the singles. Wagner began bowling in 1889 and has rolled around the world. While Lieut. Wagner was joining the singles leaders, two Toledo bowlers were taking over in the doubles with 1,304. The Ohio-ans scored in the two-man event when Dave St. Aubin hit 881 and his partner, Bob Lamb, marked up 643. Pepsi-Cola, St. Joseph, Mo., paced the 80 teams scheduled last night in taking fifth place in the standings with 2,961. SHARP ALL AROUND NOTRE DAME - Arthur W.
