S.—GP.—Uneasy rests the hand that wears the out fielder’s glove in the National league in a sea-on in which many changes of baseball personnel will be made. Only one outfield in the senior circuit may be regarded as “set." No suggestion has come that the Chi cago Cubs will attempt to improve on the combination of Riggs Steph enson. Hack \Vil*on and kikt Cuy ler. No other club is definitely standing pat. The Pittsburgh Pirates ccrta'nly will not interfere with the outfield activities of the Waner brothers but Adam Comoro sky. who played h*if a hundred games for th- Buccaneers last season, may be given added re sponsibility in 1929. 0-*atti May Flic** The St. Louis Cardirals. lost the service: of the hard hitting Walter Koetger aft-e 6> game* la t year but his broken leg has definitely mended ard h i batting average of .341 will give him fir-1 call on right field. Hafey will hold on to le^t but Ernest Ur-atti finally ousted Taylor Douthit »n the world series and m*y repeat the performance in the reg ular season. Manager John J. McGraw will as sign one of his outt eld places to Fred Leach, late of the Phillies. The rest of the outfield trio will depend somewhat on the health of Ed Roush and the showing made hy Tony Kauffman, a reformed pitcher, who batted .393 in 52 games fur Roches ter last season. The Giant- have two brilliant prospects in Veltman and Fullis. Melvin Ott will defend his position when right handers pitch against the Giants but may have an understudy when southpaws do the firing. The outfield at Brooklyn i open. Harvey Hendrick who looked like a great outfielder at third base for the Robins may come farther away from the batting cannonade. The Robins purchased or recalled seven outfielders after the National lea gue season closed. Many khakeup Two Reds who did considerable work in the outfield a: < ncuiriaii last year. Everett Purdy and r.Iart.n Calkighan, probably will be even more active in the new- sea-on. Wally Christen en, lately of Columbus, will have a chance to do his tumbling *n the spring. The Boston Braves will give an outfield alignment to George Wash ington Harper, formerly of the Phillies. Giunt* and « ardinals and young Earl « lark should be about reedy for duty. The Pbillie» are counting on Hom er Peel, procured from bt. Louis tn the Wilson deal, to tube rare of one outfield, although Peel hattrd only .251 for Houston in the Texa- league. Johnny Veltman. Giant prospect. is ♦ Texas boy. His home is in San Antonio. In 1926 ho played with Victoria in the South Texas league. Veltman has been the property or the Giants since the close of 1926. lie ha* served in the Three-1 league and the Central cirsuit. He is an all around player, and managers have been hard put to find his natural po sition. MeGraw has placed him in the outfield, where bus speed and batting is expected to stand cut. Hendrick played with Galveston of ♦ he Texa* league in 1922. He was ♦ hen outfielder. He. went to Cleve land from the Texas eirruit. and they m turn "hipped hmi to New Orleans. «here he made a great record. He has been with Brooklyn for the past three year*, playing practically ev ery position, except to pitch and eacth. Hendrick i* noted for a great throwing arm, and is hig and fast.

Tonight fan* will honor the best club Brownsville high has ever hau; ,n team that has worked with sniooth ne.-s and precisions all through its games; a team that hasn’t been scor ed upon this season in a touchdown; ja train that is loyal; a team that j idolises its coaeh; a team that will 1 ro down m history *.i the greatest ’machine ever turned out in the Val f lev. * * * And to ha* * made all this possible is Doug Fessenden, coach—there may ha letter high p-hool mentors— hut we’ll stick by Fessenden. Any time a fellow who can take over a bunch of players such as was turned over to him this past season, and weld them into the great Eagle team 1 that he has—well, they just don't come any better. And the great I thing Fessenden has done for the hoys, individually, has taught them how to plav cleanly. . . . It’s a peculiar thing in this day and time, and yet it is a fact, that the average hoy wants to play cleanly, but the same quota don't know how. That’* one of the great | thing* Fessenden has taught the ; Eagle*. • • • Another thing Fessenden hasn’t tnlciated any individual starring on the attempted part of his protege*. Teamwork ha* heen drilled into the eleven all the time—it has borne -e suits, and we dare say there isn’t a player on the squad who would change places with any individual star on any high school in the state In athletics wherein ma*«ed hoy* I form the club, it is better to he bon ! ored a.* a whole than individually. • • • And so tonight the Eagle*. Coach Fessenden, Athletic Director Irvine.

At a meet ing of the football fraternity held in New Orleans last week Dr. Ben nett was commissioned by this as sociation to go to Mexico and lec ture on football technique to the University of Mexico pla}cr*. It is the beginning of international competition, in the opinion of tho«c sponsoring the trip of Dr. Bennett, and the Mexico City University has received the mentor with open arms. In fact they sent Captain Roberto N’nreiga of the football club of that institution to accom pany Dr. Brnnett to Mexico. • • * Tom Duffcy, coach at I.yford, ex pects to put out a strong basketball quint this season.

It must be rather sentimental with Trent to have the opportunity of having a club from his home slate a pros, pcctivc training elub this season. • as Let s see—what does football do for the schools and colleges of the country besides developing mental and physical strength.

Jan. b rank ‘Tancho” Snyder today signed for a second year as manager of the Houston Baseball club. Snyder resigned in October after piloting his warriors to victory in the Texas league and Dixie Series. Snyder loft the club after the close of the Dixie Series as a result of a •alary difference with President Ankenman. Snyder and President Ankenman of the Houston club “fell out” last year because the Buff prex.v refused to pay Snyder and his men for the in terim between the close of the Tex as league series and that of the Southern league, which was five day?, that is the Southern league didn't settle its pennant fight until five days after the pennant had been won by Houston in the Texas league. Snyder claimed pay for that five-day interim and Ankenman refused. Frank Snyder's home is in San Antonio. He is a catcher, and was in the major leagues a number of years, prior to coming to Houston last year as manager. His activities in the majors included many years with the New York Gian*s, where he was regarded as the best masks man in the National league. He was rent to the St. Louis Card inals in 1926, via the waiver price. He refused to report, and returned to hi« home in San Antonio and stayed out of baseball -that year. However, love of the game was too strong for Snyder, and he reported to the St. Louis club in 1927. and the following year was sent to Houston as mana ger.

The. two grapplers are Jack San strom. 171 pounds, and Edaie Law, 176 pounds. Both have fared well in the Valiey and Wednesday's bout is expected to climax their career* in /his section. Sanstrom will he remembered by | Brownsville fans as the referee in matches tecentiy put on here by Promoter Ferguson.

Ken Macey, 125 pounds, lately of Oklahoma City, and Dick Wymore, 126 pounds of La Feria. are pro grammed to spar six rounds. Macey hung up his gloves in the Valley about a year ago with the avowed intention of sticking to his drawing board in an architect’s of fice.

GRID MERKLE’ IS DEFEATED Georgia Tech Take Up For Man Who Don ed Them Game SAN PIEGO, Cal.. Jar 3.— T toach Bill Alexander of Georgia Tech, who prepared today to lead the victorious Golden Tornado back to Atlanta after two days of sight-see ing following Tech's victory over t’alifornio at Pasadena, has rallied to the defense of Roy Riegels, Cali rornia center, whose 75-yard run in I the wrong direction gave Tech a ! safety and the margin for an S-7 j victory. Coach Alexander said Riegels' mis i play might have been pulled by any i other player under similar circum stances. He believed the similarity ; of sceenry at each end of the Rose j Bowl probably contributed to Rie gels’ confusion, and suggested that it might be well to mark each goal during a game with a distinguishing flag which could be reversed each quarter as the teams changed goals. Roy (Father! Lumpkin, star full , l ack for the Southerners, also had a word of sympathy for Riegels. He >a;d the California center was spun around a couple of time* on the plav and consequently lost all sense of direction. ~~ (By The A««ociated Pre^s.l PFTROIT — Fold er Pomhrow ki, Detroit, outpointed Bobby Booth.
