It is beginning to look like all
the money young Hol> Carpen-

going to start paying off.
Not in the form of a pennant
this year, or perhaps next, but
there is no doubt that Philadel-
phia's National League fortunes
are on the rise. Carpenter anil
his manager, likeable Eddie
Sawyer, will be well satisfied
this year if the club finishes in
the first division. It has a fight-
ing chance to. do that.
The Phillies are building on
youth witli a small mixture of

i An experience-laden Ilardin-

j squad launched spring training
j Monday with bright prospects
| that the 1940 Cowboy eleven will

In addition to a large group of
veterans — all but two of last
years starters—the squad will in-
clude 28 freshmen from last fall's
unbeaten first-year group.
Coach Warren Woodson was
highly optimistic over the Covv-

j "The freshmen are the best
we have had and the coaching
j staff eagerly is looking forward
to the spring drill," Woodson
I said. "Their presence is like a
shot in the arm."
The spring drills will be in two
sessions, March 28-April 13 and

The first game will be played

(UP)—Manager Burt Shotton
of the Brooklyn Dodgers to-
day hand-picked five of his|tuck.v',
brightest rookies to accompany
the varsity on an exhibition

Named to make the trip, and
apparently with a good chance
to make the team, were Pitch-
ers Jack Banta and Clarence
Podbelian from Montreal, Pitch-

j first-baseman Dee Fondy from
j Fort Worth, and outfielder Cal
I Abrams from St. Paul.
Despite their 3 to 1 loss to the
Philadelphia A's "B" team yes-
I terday, the Dodgers were cheer-

j Barney. Previously futile this
spring, Barney went the route

j because Dick Fowler hurled a

j and observation.
The injury overshadowed the
13 to 4 defeat handed the Braves
by the Reds. Ted Kluszewski's

lied four runs ir. the fourth and
five in the sixth. Phil Masi and
Ed Stanky homered for Boston.
