It was believed that Shortstop

Ken O'Hea probably would be
used as trading material. What

Joe Marty and Phil Cavarretta,
two of the Cubs standouts in the
world series. Pitcher Charlie Root,
third-string Catcher Bob Garbark
ar.d some of the others, including
Tony Lazzeri. remains to be seen.
1 Rumors linking Demaree with a
trade had been heard all summer.
Last winter the Pittsburgh Pirates
offered Shortstop Arkv Vaughan.
Outfielder Woody Jensev and a
pitcher for Demaree and Jurges
but the Cubs rejected the propos
lal. figuring that Demaree would
have a irood year. Instead, he had
one of his worst, batting only
273. Jurges batted only .243.
Both Carleton and French had
poor years. Carleton. who won 10
and lost nine during the regular
season, appeared as a relief hurl
h in the eighth innin<* of the last
series game and tossed two wild
pitches. French made a more cred
itable showing in his relief roles
during the world series, but won
only 10 and lost ly games during
the regular campaign.
Hartnett's objective for 1939 is
more power. Only two members
0: the 1938 Cubs hatted .300 or
better. Hack topped them all with
a 120 mark and Reynolds, by a
Lite hm.-m) spurt, just managed to
make the charmed .300 circle.

His Patrol Said to Shoot
Down 140 Enemy
War Planes
United Press Staff Correspondent
j SARAGOSSA, Spain. Oct. 11.
(UP)—Major Joaqin Garcia Mo
rato, 34, and from Malaga, is Na
j ticnalist Spain's No. 1 flier and
I leader of the "Blue Patrol." As
he now is flying on a distant
front. Major Morato agreed to
give his interview to the United
Press by telephone just before
taking his patrol over the enemy
lines for an afternoon reconais
I Major Morato strongly insisted
all the pilots in his patrol are
Spanish and that "our exploits
prove unquestionably that in the
air Spanish airmen are as good as
those of any nation." When the
1 civil war broke out, Major Morato
was in London to inspect planes
for the Spanish Air Force. He
immediately put himself at Gen
eralissimo Francisco Franco's or
ders and gradually began to form
i his patrol.
| "During the two years my pa
trol has been in existence we have
shot down 140 enemy planes," he
Major Morato, who has shot
down nore enemy planes than any
other Spanish pilot, admitted:
, "Up to today, since the begin
ning of the war, I have shot down
34 enemy planes. Each time I
shoot down a plane I put a notch
in my leather belt, just as the
Indians used to do. for the enemy
planes are my scalps. I can claim
to have shot down enemy planes
of every type in the 150 air en
counters I have had so far. These
victims of mine include Nieuports,
built in Spain before the war,
Loire ar.d Bevoitine planes built
in France, the famous Red
"chato" plane, which are Curtiss
type pursuit planes built in Rus
sia, planes known as "ratas"
(rats) on the Nationalist side and
as "moscas" (flies) on the Red
side which are Boeing-type planes
built in Russia.
"As regards bombers. I have
shot down French Potez bi-motors
and Russian made Martin bomb
ers and 'Katiuskas" engined with
Hispano motors also made in
Russia, and American Wright
Cyclones, also single-motor bomb
ers, built in Russia, commonly
called 'papagayos' (butterflies). I
have shot down Vickers bombers
which belonged to the Spanish
air-force before the war.
"With regard to enemy planes,
I consider the Curtiss pursuit
planes are the most difficult to
shoot down, due to their superior
armament and fighting maneuver
ability, while of the enemy bomb
ers, the Katiuskas are the best.
Our own pursuit planes generally
have greater speed and are more
solidly constructed, consequently
they are generally better able to
stand up to the strains and stresses
of air encounters.
"I called my 'air circus' the
Blue Patrol because blue is both
the color of the sky and of the
Falangists. Each plane is painted
with an emblem containing a cir
cle with three birds, a falcon, a
buzzard and a condor, which are
the great flight birds and our
motto is 'Vista, suerte y al Toro,'
which means 'Good sight, good
luck and on te the bull,' the latter
being a bull fight expression.
"My formation averages 14 pi
lots, all of them picked for their
daring and fearlessness, and de
spite their youth, all flying veter
ans. Whenever there is a vacancy
in the Blue Patrol, there is no
lack of candidates.
"Of these pilots, Captain Julio
Salvador has shot down 24 planes,
Commander Angel Salas 15, Cap
tain Manuel Vesquez 14, Captain
Miguel Guerrero 13, Lieut. Arisil-I
des Garcia Lopez 12, Capt. Miguel
Garcia Pardo 12, and Lieut. Ja
vior Allende 6.
"My flying circus apart from
shooting down 140 planes, has
shot down two big observation
balloons on the Madrid front as
well as a small balloon, all by Cap
tain Salvador, while Commander
Salas escorted into Viaroz the
4Cala Morlanda' vessel, giving the
captain the alternative of being
captured or sunk.
"Allende is one of my most dar
ing pilots, as he refuses to recog
nize danger. In fact, that word
is not in his vocab.ulary. In an
aerial ccmbat, when he finds him
Burleigh Grimes, Manager
for Two Seasons Is
Fired Monday
NEW YORK, Oct. 11. (UP) —
The Brooklyn Dodgers, problem
children of the major leagues,
made anotheT reformation gesture
Monday by firing Burleigh Grimes
who managed the club the past
two seasons.
It was indicated that a new pi
lot would be appointed later this
Metropolitan baseball writers
believe "Lippy Leo" Durocher,
shortstop and team captain, will
succeed Grimes.
It was uncertain today what ef
fect the new deal would have on
the destinies of Babe Ruth, who
returned to the game as a Dodger
coach during the latter half of the
recent season. The Bambino re
ceived $15,000 for his efforts.
Larry MacPhail, executive vice
president. said the retention of
Ruth in '30 would be entirely up
to the new manager. The other
coach, Tom Sheehan, has been
named manager of the Minneapo
lis club.
Although MacPhail likes Grimes
personally, he feels that a new
face in the pilot house will accom
plish more in the reformation cam
paign. Accordingly, he has been
considering Frankie Frisch, for
mer Cardinals' pilot; Jimmy Wil
son, ex-Phillies' manager; Chuck
Dressen, manager of the Nashville
Southern Association club, and
Durocher. In addition he talked
Monday with Bill Killifer, former
self in the path of an enemy
plane, both of them swooping at
diving speed, instead of trying to
get out of the way he just closes
his eyes, turns on his machine gun
and hopes he gets the enemy be
fore he crashes. So far he has not

Durocher is believed favored.
Grimes is the fifth major 1 eigne
manager to be fired in '38. The
others are Frisch from the Cards,
Charlie Grimm from the Cubs,

and Gabby Street from the
