Cubs Given Great Reception in Chi Bill Lee Likely Choice to Open Against Yanks Wednesday CHICAGO—'/PI—A roaring reception by thousands of cheering Chicagoans keyed Manager Gabby Harlnelt and his Cubs Monday for their World's Series warfare against the New York Yankees opening Wednesday. Fresh from their drive to the National League championship, the team rode througl the downtown district in a triumphant half-mile long par.u'e. Some 300,000 citizens declared an impromptu holiday and turned out to greet the idols of the hour as they were borne through blizzards of confetti in open cars. Hurlnott was, of course, the No. 1 hero lo the cheering throung. A broad smile spread over his red face as he waved both hands to Ihe people who shouted from the sidewalks and windows of skyscrapers in crowded La Salic street at the city hall entrance, scene of the official reception. To every one who got close lo shake his hand Hartneit could only .say: "Hell, this i.s swell." When the procession through the crowd lined downtown .street reached the city hall, players were led to an opi.ii platform to receive congratulations of Mayor Edward J. Kelly. Each ,f Ihe Cub players was introduced and ipoke to the crowd through micro- ihones. Grimm Voted Out The Cubs, before motoring downtown (or their receptios, met to decide upon the division of their World Series spoils and passed up the man who managed them through 81 games this year and through 5'/j plevious seasons '—CKarles''Grimm."'' Tweriiyinve full shares were voted and twenty-sixth .share was split three ways. A purse ot S'l.ODO was voted to be divided between nine rookie players and clubhouse attaches. With Hartnett following managerial custom and remaining outside the club house, the 21 players who have been with the club all season argued in ;:ecrel session for , r >5 minutes. Capl. Billy Herman was in charge. As the How to See Football No. 2— Till: SINGLE WING rf »y .II'.KUY 1MONI'TKLI> j NKA Service Sports Writer The old saw. 'There is more than one way of skinning a cat." holds good in football, where there is more than one way of scoring a touchdown. And to score touchdowns in modern fi.olball. coaches usually plan their offenses along various lines, or according to a certain system. One of the more common toddy is 4)ie single wing, which probably owes [ .to development to Amos Alon/.o Stagg, |*WlJi« 5 iS credited with originating the '."..'. . • Although there, are any number of plays which can be run from a basic formation, it is simple for the spectator to spot Ihe single wing. In most cases the left guard or left tackle will move into the right side of Ihe line, forming an unbalanced line, with a strong side. The tailback, or Number 4 back, takes a position about six yards immediately behind the center, with the Number 2 blocking back up close . . . about the yard behind the right guard. The wing, or Number 1. is a yard behind and about a yard outside the right end. and the Number 3 back takes a spot a couple of yards in frant of and a yard or so to the right of the lailback. This setup is capable of producing plenty of power on line plays to the so-called strong side, ranging from plunges over the middle to wide end sweeps. This, theoretically, makes for weakness on plays over the short side, but just as soon as the defending team starts lo overshifl to halt strongsicle maneuvers, a smart quarterback can make good use of special weak-side plays, mo:.! effective of which often is Ihe reverse, with Ihe wing back com- Will Dedicate New Prescott Stadium Curly Wolves to Clash With Glenwood Tuesday Night PRESCOTT, Ark. — The Prescot High School Curly Wolves will dcdi catu their new football stadium her Tuesday night when they tangle will the Glenwood High School eleven ii a contest which will mark the openin of Ihe Nevada county fair. Coach O. H. Storey, Jr., gave h team only a slight workout here Mon day afternoon and Ihe Wolves will lak ing around. Normally, however, the wing back helps his end block the defending tackle, the most dangerous man Ihe strong side must contend with. The wing back lending aid to the end is one of the outstanding features of the single wing formation, anil the fact that three backs—the wing excepted—are in position to receive direct pass from center, is another strong feature. Most prevalent offense used by big- time schools, the single wing, is pu into action by Yale, Dartmouth, Northwestern, California and others. leeting broke up, Herman read off the eward. "How about the ex-manager'.'" he vas asked. "It was voted on," he tactfully rc- ilied. Why no share was voted to Grimm is 'ertain to become a subject of con- roversy but those close to the players iclieve it was mainly due to the fact hat Grimm did not come down from lis broadcasters' IxKjth in St. Louis Saturday to congratulate them when hey won the pennenl. Monday, however, he sent a laudatory message to Harlnctt. It was read at Mayor Kelly's welcoming reception, 1932 Tactics Itccalled Considerable argument must have [•receded the voting, decided by simple majority, for the meeting was one ol Ihe longest of its kind. By their failure to vote Grimm a share Ihe Cubs put themselves open to criticism, as in 1932 when they failed to give anything Iroin the post-season fund lo Rogers llornsby, who was succeeded as manager by Grimm in midseason. At that time Ihe Cubs also voted lo give Mark Kocnig, who was a vital factor in the flag drive, a half share. The Yankees made capital of this, giving the Bruins a sound verbal lacing, calling them "cheapskates" and "chiseler.s" from lie dugout. r'hilip K. Wrigley, owner of the Cubs, was surprised at the decision of Ihe players to exclude Grimm. "I believe it was a trifle .short-sighted on the part of the boys." he said. 'However, it is strictly a question for them to decide. Grimm has done very well financially, the Cubs not only paid him for his lime a.s manager mil also up to the end of Ihe year." To Sliwt Bill U-c Hartjiett retired to his plotting room to plan strategy he will use against the Yankees in the opening game of the scries at Wrigley Field Wednesday. Ho did not figure on starling "Dizzy" Dean in the first game. The fact he would not use Dean indicated conclusively he would choose Bill Lee. who won 22 games and virtually pitched the Cubs inio Ihe championship. Owner wrigley would like to sec Dizzy pitch at least one of the games in the series and he will probably gel his wish, since he laid $185.000 on the line to acquire Ihe great man. "Actually we bought Dean for this scries," Wrigley said.

The Scrappers, fealuring a stout forward wall and a pair of hard running back.s. have been going great this season and will give the local eleven plenty of trouble. So far this year, Coach Storey's boys have been doing all right by themselves. They have been defeated only once, that being by the Magnolia Panthers in a disputed game. By JF.RRY BKONFIELD NEA Service Snorts Writer EVANSTON, III.—No collegiate football player—not even Red Grange, nor anyone else you might name—has ever been so much on the spot as 19-year- Id Bill DeCorrevont, late of Chicago Austin High School and now n fresh- lan at Northwestern. But nfter a couple of weeks spent vilh the Wildcat yearlings, it appears s though Ihe 180-pound youngster will urmount the bostacle of having been lie most highly-publicixied prep foot- 'flllcr in the history of the sport. Because DeCorrevont has poise— nore poise a.s a freshman than many thleles attain at the height of their •arsity careers. Freshman Coach Maury Kent, who ins seen and worked with a lot of Northwestern greats—such as Moon ;aker, Hank Brudcr, Pug Rentncr am 3on Heap—says Bill reminds him most of Baker. "He has the same relaxed atlitude .ind ability to spring into top speec .vhen the ocasion demands that mad Moon such an outstanding back," say Kent. "He doesn't have Ren trier's speed no Brudcr's drive, but he has loads o natural ability. DeCorrevont Has No Illusions "Bill is a fine runner, though. No fancy, mind you, but very effective He moves easily and strongly—neve tightens up. "His passing and kicking is jus fair, but that poise of his should ovei come any shortcomings he might have.

I hope I'll make the varsity a.s a sophomore, but if I don't I'll ha the least surprised person of all. Right now I'm just one of 70 freshmen out here with the same idea, and there might be a lot of boys who will be able to put their ideas into better effect." Because he is so modest and anas- sutning, Bill is one of the more popular boys on the freshman squad. And while the varsity is eager to stop him in his tracks every time he carries the ball in scrimmage against the regulars, there's no deliberate ganging on him—no feeling of resentment against him. Austin Teammates With Star School to tliis glittering freshman is a whole lot more than just football, He's working his way through and his chores aren't merely a matter of putting in time. He has a job in the athletic equipment room and a part-time job at the co-op store. In addition, he waits on tables at the Sigma Chi house, where he is a pledge. Week-ends he goes home to Austin a Chicago suburb, to spend a couple o days with his widowed mother. Otherwise he has plenty of com pany from his own neighborhood. Also Football Injuries Are Ranked 4th on Record BOSTON— I/P)— Football players are ust fourth-raters when it comes to letting injured. So said Dr. Augustus Thorndike Jr. surgeon for the Harvard football team, in an article on sports and recreation injuries written in the New England Journal of Medicine. Reporting on his experience with 239 fractures in "organized sports," he said football had produced the least serious ones, with baseball and polo each producing one compound fracture, and hockey a bad leg fracture. As for skiing—"ever since the mountain trails were opened to the pnublic, each winter has found more than one BEAUMONT, Texas — IIP) — Ancient Leo Moon, about the business of pitching baseballs the r as t IT years, won the Dixie baseball pennant for his Atlanta Crackers Monday with a 7-to-O decision over the Beaumont Exporters of the Texas League. Unable to touch the southpaw slants of the old-timer, who pitched for Beaumont back in 1924, the Exporters got only three one-base blows. Ihe Crackers, Southern Association champions, didn't drop a game in the series, winning four and tying Monday's thriller in 13 innings. : Chatham Hits Two While Moon was soft balling the Exporters into a deep sleep, his diminutive shortstopping companion, Buster Chatham, was leading the assault on Dizzy Trout, right-hander, with a pair of home runs over the left field palings that accounted for three runs. Trout, who won 23 games over the regular season, was touched for nine hits-and six runs in his eight-inning stretch. The Crackers didn't forget their first inning scoring complex, getting two on Mailho's walk and Chatham's first round tripper. Right back they came in the second to tally two more on Richards' single, Peters' life on an error, Boiling's single and Mailho's towering fly into left that permitted Peters to score. FaL Ahead in Seventh The Crackers repeated the two-run dose in the seventh, Boiling storting it with a life on Croucher's error. Mailho sacrified him along and Chatham walked. Mauldin's single drove in Boiling and Chatham came in on Oetting's blow. Chatham's second homer in the fifth wound up scoring. Clouds hovered over the park all afternoon but only a few drops fell. One of the smallest crowds in the series history, 1,725, was on hand. Pulverizes Par SARATOGA SPRINGS—William H. Ford of Saratoga Springs played three consecutive holes of gol£ in five under par.
