TINKER TO TRY NEW PLAYERS
ON NORTH SIDE
By Mark Shields
From now until the end of the play
ing season on the North Side we can
expect a procession of ambitious
youngsters seeking to make good in
the national pastime as displayed in
the more or less major league.
Manager Tinker has arrived at the
conclusion that some of the material
he now has is not capable of stand

himself in the shortstop position and
is doing so.
Saier has not been a star at first
base. "
Flack, Mann, Williams and Kelly
are good outfielders, but another
garden guardian is needed, prefer

paw.

league, not barring Brooklyn and
Boston.
Pitchers Pete Stand ridge and
George Zabel have been recalled by
the Cubs from Los Angeles. They
will not report until spring. Out
