Mills handed in his uniform because of a misunderstanding with Coach Payne. The difficulties between J. Mills and the high school mentoi have been smoothed out. and Mills will be playing first and will serve as utility man, which has been his usual role for the past two seasons. Polite has been moved to second base, and F. Mills, last season’s short stop, has been moved in from the «ut field to give a great deal of strength to a tottering infield. Kearney, reserve backstop of last season, will handle the work behind the plate. Robert Greene, big left hander will go out to right field and Turner, a fast, clean gardner will go to center, his old post.
