It meant sacrificing his profes-
sional reputation, but what, he
calculated, is a rep beside a por-
terhouse steak. Well, what is it?
At any rate, his readers, though
puzzled by some of his choices,
remained loyal and religiously
followed their favorite handi-
And then there fell a fly in the
ointment. By some stroke of fate,
the selling platers and hayburners
which the, writer picked started to
finnish in the money. Like the Midas
touch, any horse he singled out turned
into a gold entry, and naturally the
bookie joint took a terrific beating.
In short order, it collapsed and left
the conniving handicapper flat bust-
ed. But to his readers he was still
the premier selector in the nation. His
reputation was intact, but the porter-
house steaks had proven nothing more
than a series of mirages.
All of which goes to prove noth-
\ng, and still leaves us with two
choices to make.
If the Chicago Cubs fail to
capture the National League
gonfalon this year, then owner
Phil K. Wrigley might better
concentrate his attention upon
chewing gum-and leave the
'baccer chewing lads to their own
resources. For Dizzy Dean should
be what the doctor ordered, even
though he cost the Cubs plenty of
green lettuce. With a slick de-
fersive team with punch well dis-
tributed throughout their line-
up, the Cubs lacked only a No. I
hurler, someone like Hubbell, to
complete a winner. In the spring
book, they can't lose . .. or can
they? They've even got in re-
serve two managers-Tony Laz-
zeri and Gabby Hartnett. And
with Wrigley edging in his own-
ers prerogative now and then,
the boys should never doubt the
presence of leadership, although
they may have trouble putting
their finger on it.
We might create a mild sensation
by declaring that the Yankees will
fold up in the American loop, but
that might indicate chicanery, espe-
cially if some furtive looking gent
approaches you in the next few days
and offers a few shekels that they
won't. So rather than incur the risk,
we'll merely predict that the battle
will be between two western clubs.

ing somewhat from his usual variety
of drills, Crisler has concentrated
heavily on line blocking. Excluding
ends, lines of five were alternated in
the blocking assignments.
Following the long workout, Cris-
ler lined his men up in an offensive
drill which stressed line plays and
passes, putting into practice the line-
work featured in the earlier workout.
