Chance ar.d Tiant were the key figures in a six-player sffap between the Indians and the Twins last winter. Chance, 1-2, scattered nine hits in eight innings, walking two and striking out seven but the Indians lost to Chicago White Sox 2-0, a-> Ire high grass at Cleveland's Municipal Stad- ium affected two key infield hits. Tiant, meanwhile, ran his rec- ord had a dismal 9-10 last shuttmg out De- troit Tigers on three singles, tvo. He also stroked a double and two singles, stole third base and knocked in a run.

He made clear his stand on the vouth of today. "Kids, lad I'm'talking about the biggest portion of them, are doing a great job. We have trouble with some of them but for the most part they are all right." _ Although never a great high school basketball fan, McCann became interested in the game this past fall and .was confident the north, represented by Ed- monton Jasper Place, would rule the Alberta roost "I watched this club play and it was a said McCann. It was supposed to be the best team ever from the jrovince's capital. They swept he north without any trouble.
