Till CATALINA InkAilOItlq CATCH OF SARDINES ALMOST SINKS BOAT On Wednesday afternoon the purse ~iner "Sunlight" was run ashore at Pebbly Beach, for the alleged reason that so many seams had opened in the vessel that it was liable to sink in deep water.

THI CATALINA IILANDE;~ Forlorn Hope Johnny--"Grandpa. can you help me with this problem?" Grandpa--"I could, dear, but I don't think it would be right." Johnny--"I don't suppose it would, but take a shot at it, anyway."--Stray Stories. Need of the Hour What we would like to know Is why smart thinkers Haven't thought up some way to Abolish clinkers ..... McCARTHY By Ed W. Smith "He has tremendous drive behind his long clubs, but there is a l~urring soft- ness to his putters that is mighty ef- fective." Such was a golfing simile that one of the Country Club players applied to Joe McCarthy. manager of the Cubs, after watching him direct practice affairs during g day last week. Surely McCarthy gets a lot ofwork out of his men without appearing to be after them at any stage. He directs cheerfully, but his wishes have a di- rectness that is all his own. Men like him, and seem willing and even anx- ious to carry out to the fullest any ideas he may suggest. Almost every little incident on the field reminds this remarkable Irish- man of something of a similar nature that happened during his long years of experience. The resnlt is a run- ning fire along the sidelines that makes play out of seeming hard work. And don't think that spring train- ing--any kind of athletic training, as a matter of fact--isn't mighty hard "work. Chief terrors come generally (luring the first three to five days, when aches and sorenesses are so com- mon that a recital of them brings only a bunch of grins from unsympathetic teammates who are just as badly hooked up with their own bruises and stiff joints. It is too early to predict anything of McCarthy's players. He has a young team, but one of c(msiderable exper- ience. The new men are experienced as well. There is a certain "feel" to the outfit that tells of confidence-- confidence at once in themselves and their manager. It is a sparkling organization.
