Following the ' Newport-Cayuga game, St. Beroice is sciieduled to play,., ParcyBville. and Hillsdale tackles Clinton at nine o'clock. As a rasult f the tragic depletion In the Cayuga rauoks, Newport is a beairy favorite to take the opener.

If you want it, is that it may be an amalgamation of the Garden and Twentieth Century boxing interests, combining the best features of each, including Mike Jacobs.

J r. Mi I lug NEW YORK, Jan. 20 From a pecan farm at Meeker, Okla., came Pitcher Carl Hubbell's signed contract today, A& that means the New York -Giants are about two-thirds ready for defense of the National League pennant. Club officials revealed today that Hubbell was among the outstanding beneficiaries In a general upward revision of salaries for 1937, but declined to say what the rise amounted to. The guess was that his contract called for $22,500, making him the second highest-salaried pitcher in the game, presuming Dizzy Dean will continue to holler for (50,000 and sign for half price or a little better, . ; sjj Paid 17,C00 in 1935 and probably the same last season, Hubbell bit the peak of efficiency with hie left-handed screw ball in that 1936 pennant race, wlauJng IS in a row through the stretch to bring the Giants home almoBt single-handed.
