Frank lived for 15 years, and
where his shock of gray hair,
cowboy gloves, outrageous buck-
swing. unique vocabulary, and
matchless wit, were known
wherever men suffer in traps
and in the rough, his friends
have joined to make the Con-
don tournament one that lie
would have loved to write about.
First prize in the tournament
will be a bronze plaque, but it
won’t go to the winner. It is to
be sunk in a giant tree that
guards the approach to the
ninth green at San Gabriel. This
j is the tree that cost Frank a
j thousand bogies, because it
! catches shots that are sliced and
Frank had a slice that followed
the path of the great circle
Its bark has fell the
whack of hundreds of his
hrassie shots, anil for 13
years it stymied him. Many
and varied were his descrip-
tions of this tree in the lock-
er room, and the San Gab-
riel meinlyrs felt that he
would understand and
chuckle if lie knew that the
|daque were being placed
One of the several feature
foursomes which will play in
the tournament is composed of j
Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, I'ntty
Bery. and Mildred (Babel Did
rikson. At first the tournament
committee considered having
Crosby and Hope play the girls
but remembering that the spec-,
tutors deserved a full run foi
the world’s greatest polo
players, the former welter-
weight champion, and one
of F. S. t'.’s greatest ends,

six years the Philadelphia Ath-

From 1935 through 1940 the
Athletics’ victories have ranged
between 53 and 58 ea:h season.
Their top percentage has lieen

that period. Four times they’ve

There’s nothing in the 1941

cate that the A’s are going any

has done a bit of house-cleaning
getting rid of such players as
Bill Lillard, Joe Gantenbein, A1
Rubeling. Bill Nagle. George
Caster, Ed Heusser, Eric Tip-
ton and Dario Lodigiani, but his
replacements aren’t anything to

doubtful if more than three or
four of the new crop will add
anything to the A’s,

Perhaps the best of the new-
comers is Pete Butler, a 23-year-
old third baseman who hit .301
for the Binghamton eastern lea-
gue club. He is expected to take
over the hot corner, where
four men failed last season. Ed-
die Collins, Jr., son of the great
Athletics - White Sox second
baseman, comes up from Balti-
more to bid for a berth in the
outfield. He is List and may have
a future. He hit .293 lust, season.
The best of the other rookies
are two right-handed pitchers
from Toronto, Phil Marchildon
