ST. LOUIS, Mo.— The hammering and sawing that’s going on in the Western Division of the American League as managers and coaches re-arrange their rosters for the soon-to-start race Is easily matched by Eastern clubs.

The new coaches are Ebbie Goodfellow at Chicago, Neil Colville at New York and Joe Primeau at Toronto. Lynn Patrick has moved from the New York Rangers to the Boston Bruins.
