CUBS AND SOX SHOW WELL IN
By Mark Shields
One-game judgments are not con
clusive, . but enough developed yes
terday'on the North Side to rate the
Cubs as a pretty fair collection of
ballplayers, who should improve
through the season as Manager
Mitchell brings teamplay out of the
chaos of individual efforts. Soniq
good material is present, needing
only expert molding to enable it to
win,better than an even break in vic

ankle on the way to first. But when
he slammed a line drive against tha
