small town pitchers with great vigor,
but he has not taken many chances

Manager Mitchell is a close
mouthea party and has not definitely
indicated the line-up of his outfield.
Williams and Wolter appear assured
of stations, but the third berth is a
contest between Flack and Leslie
Mann. Mann has a game leg and
Flack is temporarily at work with
the first team.
JVIitchell would like to use Flack in
the lead-off position, but it is hard to
displace Mann, who was the best

the president of the league. And if
the club runs out of opponents
