ousted from the AFL on charges
of being racket dominated, I point

now nationally notorious rackets
I asked him to put himself on

"The policy of the International

like a starry-eyed recruit caser to

and versatile infieldcr is the Amer American
ican American League champions' number
one candidate at shortstop.
The club brass hopes he can
make the plays at the strange post

Last season, for example, he
even chanced his highly unorthc-
!dox batting swing. And he hit .285

McDougald has the incentive
the added money he could com
mand as a shortstop. His hitting
last season was little more than
acceptable for a third, or even a
second baseman. But as a short
stop it would be slightly terrific.
McDougald has batted as high as
.306 and driven in 83 runs. One
season like this and the money

John Partridge, veteran trainer, who, was in racing before
horses even wore shoes, says a man is crazy to try to beat

Competent gent, everybody says. Let's take a look at a couple
of his recent Jobs. First, the Widener.
' This, was a wonderful race to see, with two heads and a
neck separating the first three across the wire. Nashua, top
weight at 127, won by inches. He was giving away from six to
22 pounds. t y
- ARCARO SAVED HIM
Mr' McLennan had fulfilled one of the basic demands of
the lob. He distributed the weights with such sagacity as to
provide dramatic competition, despite the presence of a su superior

Everybody remarked what a marvelous piece of handlcap handlcap-phu

most almost got the odds on favorite beat. Suppose Nashua had lost,
instead of won,' by a head? It would have been a rousing fin finish,

Not in my book, it wouldn't have. As it was, all that sav saved

aT Theother day a thing called Guardian II won the Hialeah
Handicap and paid $178.80 for two bucks. At 107, he carried
less than any other starter in the field. In reality, McLennan
had assigned him 104 pounds, but the jock couldnt make it,
and a suggestion that a trained chimp in an adjacent carnival
be substituted, was dismissed as frivolous by the stewards, as If
they ever would have known the difference.

up that the ubiquitous Col. Hindsight began to pontificate.
Still, it doeg seem incredible that an acknowledged expert,
who makes handicapping his life's work, could miss by such a
ridiculously wide margin.
I suppose the explanation is that McLennan, like so many
handicappers, depends largely on the mechanics of past per-

is suddenly going to make like a Native Dancer, and if this is
