NEA Service Siwrls Miter EW YORK.—The sudden t'.v of the New York Ginnw from sixth place to a world championship, borne on the wings of Carl Hubbell's splendid pitching-Wholesale Ruining ot major league players that will give the sixteen teams new 'faces for 1934— Resuscitation of those perennial cellar champions, (he Red Sox, hj- Thomas Yawkey's purchase of moie than $500,000 worth ol players, In- cluding.the great Lcliy Grove- Downfall of the great Yankee dynasty that prevailed for years, and the fading of Big Bad Habe Itulh— Theze were the highlights of a baseball year that gives promise with Its dying breath of the hottest races In history for 1931. , • * + Hubbell wins the honor of being the hero of IAo year. As he recorded shutout after shutout, the Giants gained new confidence and swept to victory despite expectations cf critics that the Icam would-fold. In the world series his work was oulslandlng. .To Bill Terry, a first-year manager, gees credit for t!:e inspirational leadership required. He supplied not oii)y that, but helped materially with an active bat. Not by Hubbell 'alone did the Oiants live, however, parjuclce. Schumacher, Filulunpons anci Ui- que,helped lo round out tr.c capable staff thai slopped the Senators And Ihe air-tight Giants' infield of Terry, Critz. Ryan, Jackson and Vergez did yeoman service. The world series over, major league clubs started a wholesale exchange of talent, with t!:e idea ol attracting customers in 1934. The fate for 1933, while it admitted morn people than in '32. was not surti that the club-owners made much money, prices being reduced In most cities. Ti-.e two Philadelphia teams were especially hard hit and had to sell stars to satisfy creditors. Important deals that promise to change the whole picture in 1934 were made at the league meetings, the most active trader and pur- c.,aser being the Boston Red Sox.

Hooks and Slides fy Bill Braucher Mostly Wrorur Bets on this commentator's predictions for the major sports events of 1933 would have been pretty safe -If you had bet against them, looking back, there appear' to' b,- only tr.ree exceptions to the run'o! bad luck. Our department, aided by sootti- sayers,- star-gazers, statisticians, and common giiessers, selected No- Ire Dame to beat Army; picked Sharkey to lose to Camera, Irfvin- sky and boughran, and wagered 15 cents that Ihe Kentucky Derby would be won by the Bradley entry Aside from that we were wrong. « * • . ' tlow Dot* He Do It? Based on reports of Pacific Coast Oiwralive No. 19-X. the department blithcfully went on record lo t!-e effect that U. S. C. would overwhelm Stanford. Tt also was a canny conclusion, reached after close personal observation, that Max Schmelin? would outpunch Max Baer. Both U. S. C. and Echmcling -were knocked oat. Tr.e world scries was a horrible affair for this forecaster. Based on the clouting strength of the Scn- alors, their Infield, bat boy and groundkecper, this astute" department waxed loud In Its assertion (lie Washinglonians would lake It in seven games. The Serbs would be made tough by the pitching of Carl Hubbell, of course, but that would be overcome. You Just could- n'l keep those big Capllal bats silent. Imagine our blushing cha- Brln when the Giants ccfpped it in five games, and without u great deal of Ulat! The Davis Cup was another instance ol error. But our selection of the United Stales Davis Cup learn was based more on patriotic hope than experience. Let's put lhat to one side for a write. Who could have foreseen thai Helen Wills Moody, alter knocking the ladies oil at Wimbledon, would rclurn lo this country and lose to Helen Jacobs? Not this corner, my friends, nol this corner. (Whew! This is getting tougher and lou»h- cr) » * * Oolf All \Vct Sarazen was our favorite to win the British Open. He came close, but after the last divot had been replaced, Hermon Densmore Shuts wai standing there holding the cup nnd saying a f fiw well-chosen words. The department refused to pick LI winner cf (he National Op?n and National Amateur. That was a great favor for .Johnny Ooodmaii and Clc-orgc Dunlap, anyway II Ihsv had been selected as probable wlnn-.-is by this commentator they couldn't have won. To™ Mui-li! The troubles of your hciwywelcht chamnion of the world arc just beglning. In a recent bankruntcy hearlnK, Primo Camera testified that he had received 8.1CO for his knockout of Jack Sharkey The Moving Mountain went on to say Hint lie could tint recall what he had received for his part In the motion picture. "The 1'rizcfi-lilor and the Lady." Maybe he did It merely for the publicity, wit), perhaps an NRA label thrown In. There are llmse who can rcmem- l:er back a few years to Dempsey nnd ll-cv will .say that if Primo tot $:ieo for knocking out Jack Sharkev the way ]« did. he was overpaid.
