March 20. - Cleveland has the current edition of the Indians of the American league in training and with it the class of 1931 and 1932. There are 47 play ers in camp, ranging from the 18 year old Mel Harder to the 39 year old Grover Hartley. With a new manager and new own ers. Cleveland is looking far ahead. Some of the two score players now in uniforms, will not wear this livery during the season, hut they are sure to don the colors again in years to | come. One of the minor league graduates has already made good. Eddie Mor gan, former Tulane star, who was a i Southern association sensation with ! the New Orleans Pelicans last sea ! son. has been given Tris Speaker's old place, center field. Charlie Jami ! son will again play left field and lead off, and Homer Summa who knows his right field wall in Cleve land, will try to outguess that har rier through another season. Ger ken and Langford, who have been up before, promise to remain as utility outfielders. Gill, a ra tgy young chap, and Speer, just as young and almost as rangy, will be heard from later. Many Youngsters The veteran George Burns will play first base and hit doubles. Lew Fonseca will start at second base and 'consistent Joe Sewell at short. John ny Hodapp Will play third. Manager Peckinpaugh will act as an infield I substitute as will his former team mate, Aaron Ward. Carl Lind, an other Tulane alumnus, has a chance to join Morgan in rooting for the green. The place is all cluttered up with young fellows who probably will make their mark on future baseball pages. Jonah Gogdman, Syracuse university shortstop, and Ed Mon tague, third baseman from New Ha ven, have shown flashes which will win them places on th* farm and a TTELlHf *'"11 EjSH6| CHECK THAT COLD The only sale plan is to attack a Cold right at the beginning.

PARK LABORATORY CO- Sis Asiomo. T.i * r -^in7-jnnTiMBTTf liBiTirT1^^**^^ Miller, Walter Brown and George Grant are returning to the mound. Bill* Bayne, a smart lefthander, who pitched for Greenville in the South Atlantic association, has an excellent chance to become a relief pitcher with the Indians. Glenn Bolton, a huge southpaw, may have to be dis posed of before the stocky Bayne can get the job, and Collard. late of New Orleans, will bear watching. The new school of pitching taught in Cleveland is filled with promis ing pupils. Wesley Farrell is one of the outstanding members. Al though only 20 years of age, he is two inches over six feet in height and weighs 195 pounds. He came to the Indians from Oak Ridge military institute. North Carolina. He is by no means ready for the exacting de mands of the major leagues, but he is sure to remain under Cleveland’s wing. Mel Harder is another school boy recruit who is on his way to baseball fame. He is but 18 years old. but stands six feet in his sox and scales 180. still far short of full growth. He is a product of Techni. cal high school, Omaha. SISI.ER OUTSHINES MATES TAMPA. Fla..
