NEW YORK, Jan. 3. (JP)lt looks like a prosperous new year for Miller Hugglns hired hands and a tough one for the rest of the American league. Since the Yankees swept through the American league to a championship championship last Fall and then dusted off the Pittsburgh pirates in four straight games to prove their rights to top baseball ranking, Hugglns' negotiations have been met with a stern and rockbound silence on the part of rival managers. Except for a shake-up shake-up shake-up in his pitching corps, Hugglns hasn't done much with hiB championship ma chine. Reports are that the Yank ees have obtained title, under cover, to the crack Keystone combination of the Oakland club of the Pacific Coast league, Lyn Lary and Andy Rees. If they have been purchased it is probably for future delivery. The Yankees are pretty well forti fied around the middle bag now with Lazzerl and Koenig. The ohly major addition to the club since the season closed is Stanley Stanley Coveleskle, veteran spitball twirler, who was let out by Washington Washington last season. Hugglns has disposed of three pitchers. Bob Shawkey, Dutch Rue-ther Rue-ther Rue-ther and Joe Giard, besides Ray Morekart, utility infielder. Four Title Tilts Are In Prospect By A I, AN J. (ifll LI) ( Amioelntml Prexa NuiortH.HilHor NEW YORK, Jan. 3. (JP) The New Year opened up with quite a few chins in danger. While Gene Tunney, in Florida, and Tex Rickard, in New York, carry on the debates as to whether the champion is to have one or two bouts this year, at least four title tilts in other divisions are in prospect. Tommy Loughran, living up to his promise to be a fighting champion, exposes his light-heavyweight light-heavyweight light-heavyweight crown to the punches of Leo Lomski, Pacific Pacific coast challenger, Friday night at Madison Square Garden. A welterweight title bout between Joe Dundee and Ace Hudkins, a bat tle for featherweight honors between rival title claimants, Tony Canzoneri and Benny Bass, and a flyweight scrap between two other championship championship contenders, Izzy Schwartz and Frenchy Belanger, also are on the cards for the indoor campaign. "What price radio" seems to be the concern of many of the college athletic managers grappling with the problem of how to make football receipts receipts finance sports activities as a whole. Except where traditional battles or natural sell-outs sell-outs sell-outs are involved, the graduate managers believe that the radio cuts rather heavily into foot-bull foot-bull foot-bull revenue. "It is especially true," they say, "if it happens to be bad weather or a game that's played a little off the beaten track. The old grads can't be discouraged but a lot of fans prefer prefer the comfort of tuning in at home to the rigors of a blustery day in a stadium. Besides, the listener-in listener-in listener-in has his choice of what's on the air." Fewer games, as a result, are likely likely to be broadcast in 1928. It is understood that the University of Pittsburgh, whoso big stadium has yet to be filled, will refuse all radio privileges next fall. Pennsylvania expects to' restrict its broadcasting to only two big games, which would be sell-outs, sell-outs, sell-outs, anyway, possibly the Navy or Cornell contests.
