More pruning is due the local big
league ball clubs b.efore the spring
training trips start in March, and
both Managers Rowland of the White
Sox and Tinker of "the Cubs will be
busy men, arranging for discards.
Rowland has 34 athletes on his list,
and it is desired that only 27 start
from here for Mineral Wells, Tex.,
where the conditioning camp will be
pitched. A dozen pitchers and half
as many catchers are on the roster,

Roger is interested in getting the full
terms of his contract for the next two
years and doesn't care much where
the money comes from. 1
