THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1938. THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND. . SEVKNi PHIL CAYARETTA STARTS AS REG Rip Collins Will Be Forced to Beat Out Youngster for First Base Job Chicago, Jan. 4 (ff)— Phil Carat 1 - retta, 21-year-old youngster of the Chicago Cubs, will start the 1938 training campaign as regular first baseman, forcing •'Rip 11 Collins to beat him out of the job if he can. Charlie Grimm, manager of the Cubs, made this announcement today as ho arrived to go over spring trail.lug rictivities with Philip K. Wrlgley, owner of the team, at Cata\in? island next month. Cavai'retta's selection as a regular conies as a reward for his services after Collins suffered a broken ankle in the heat of the pennant race last August. The youthful ChicafeOan had a chance as first baseman in 1935 and 1936, but failed to satisfy Grimm's thoughts about the iob. Plenty On Squad Cavarretta batted .286 last season, while playing in the outfield and at first base, and fielded .982 at first in the 43 games he played at that spot. Collins batted .27'4, his poorest major league mark, and fielded .981 in 111 games. The Cub manage.- plans to have 33 players on the island, an increase of five over last season when only 28 mad i the trip. Last spring the Cubs want west with only four outfielders hut there will be seven in the group this spring. The Cubs 1 boss said he had about given up hope of making any deals that might bring Van Lingle Mungo to the Cubs from Brooklyn. He said he had talked to Burleigh Grimes, manager of the Dodgers, twice since the winter meeting. "If Grimes thinks he can get a whole ball club for Mungo, he won't make any progress with me," Grimm commented.

Why Not! Top Scorer in Big ten Still Working By WALTER L. JOHNS Central Press Sports Writer It's a yearly custom to pick Purdue to win the Big,Ten basketball championship. And the cage observers are doing it again this year. So we'll hop aboard. We'd say that the only team which could take Purdue right now is Michigan—and—Michigan doesn't play Purdue this year.'So it looks like Purdue all alone. The Boilermakers, coached by Ward Lambert, who has won eight championships since 1919, are a veteran team headed by the highest-scoring player in the confer- ence, Jewell Young, a forward. A breath-taking speed attack, combined with brilliant team play, has given the Purdue club a great record with which to embark on their 12-game conference schedule Jan. 8 at. Chicago. The Boilermakers have averaged 68 points a game and have been surpassing all previous marks. This accomplishment really is something, for the team -holds the Big Ten scoring records including season, single game and Individual and long has been known as the "point-a-minute" team in basketball. In Ihe first seven games Purdue slapped Indiana State Teachers, St. Xavier, Detroit, DePaul, Loyola, Denver and Southern California— scoring 406 points. The Boilermakers trimmed Denver, 72 to 41, for their high mark. For the first time in history, a Purdue cage team has traveled to (ho Pacific coast. The Denver game was the first on the far western trip, other games being; played with Southern California and U. C. L. A. on successive nights. Whether the long trip and tough competition will change the club's st.itus as favorite in the Big Ten race remains to he seen.
