Whether the drop in ivory prices s!:nuId be laid to business conditions or the draft rule recently adopted remains to te seen. Following an o'.d Sapmsh custom, the Pacific. Coast League again grabbed most of the money for talent. Eight former coast players are among the more" aristocratic rcokies of 1931. Strangely, Jce Kulicl and Myril Hcag. two of the most costly youngsters, may find bench warming among their duties this year. Th? Senator paid Kansas City $55.000 and a pitcher for First Baseman Kuhel, who proved an able understudy for veteran Joe Judge late last "year. Hong cost Colonel Rup- pcrt between $50,000 and 575.000, plus a sizeable lelegraph toll during the argument over an option the Yanks held. Brooklyn's recent deal with Oakland for Catcher Ernie Lombard! and the Giants' transaction late last season for Outfielder Harry Rcsenberi} were the only other big money affairs. The Robins parted wilh $50.000 ami two '.veil-worn pLiyeis while Rosenberg cD3t the Gte'iits $40,000 in cash. Charley Wilson, Rochester stsr, is expected to improve the Braves' infield without undue expense. He's a shortstop unless Rabbit Maran- \ille- continues his capers as of last. Esasun. In that event, Wilson must nrgue with Bus Chatham for third basing honors. The Braves also in- cluced a pair of hard hitting out.' fielders to take up residence in Bcs- kj tcii lo assist Wally Berger. They are Hob Worthlncton. who batted .370 for Rochester, and Wes Sci'.ul- merich, a .377 hitter for Los Angeles. Scnulmerich happens lo iiie same young man whom Pop Warner once said was the greatest fullback on the CMS:, next to his cwn prize pupil. Ernie Nevers.
