NEW YOrtK, Jan. 12.—If Rogers Hornsby's plans go through, the Browns' pitching staff of 1931 will be known. as the old gcnlle- iini from St, Louis. Hornsby -wants 1 something to .vllh ihe executives, spirit and office furniture that come with ' the new American League setup at Sportsman's Park. It appears as I though ihe Ilajah has ben stopped In trade negotiations, so lie's doing the next best thing. He's fulling back on a lot o* old bowl- •ng blokes. There nrc mighty few spring chickens on the Browns' hurling itnff now. Alphonse Thomas Is n. Elon Hogsett is 33. Russell Van 30, Ivy Paul Andrews ,vlll be 20 before ihe campaign Is veil under way. To this .'collection Hornsby would add the soulhpaws, Wild BUI Hal- Inhiui, now with Cincinnati, and Hill Walker, now with the Cardinals' .Hochester farm. Hallnhan is 32. Walker a year older. From the minors, Hornsby already .Ims obtained Lou Koupal 'mm: Seattle, and would bring In Sheriff Fred Blake, the old Cub new with Baltimore, and Willie Lmlolph of Oakland,; All of them are old enough to know better . « • • t I I^s llhikc's Curve. "You gotta have pitchers to get any place, and I ain't so sure all tlas winter pep stuff will make a lot of difference If we don't'change the ball club," says Homsby. ''It's all right. I'guess,- to become enthusiastic about our prospects'-but I'm hoping that the writers and tlie fans of St. Louis will iiot< expect too much of us,' '. • : ' "1 don't want lo start the 1937 season with the same staff that finished for me in 103G, I'm on the trail of every experienced pitcher In the business. If I can I'elp It, I'm not going to experiment with raw recruits. I want two or three pitchers who at least know how to pitch. And I don't care a darn how old they are: "I don't know If we can get Blake or.Lmlolph, but they're• the lype I want,, or course, I'd • like Schoolboy Rowp from De- troll. Bob Feller from .Cleveland, Monte Rcarson from the Yankees and pitchers of that kind. But'i can't, so I'm. doing Ihe'next best ."Don'.t laugh because I mention Blake.-lie's ihe right-hander who was with . Ihe' Cubs some years ago, He's been around, but I know Ills style. He's a curve-ball pitcher and fetice-buslers of the, American Lfftgue don't Jlke pllchers with ii .round-house curve. That's why I've picked ,Blake. . • ' Old'lioys-Come 'fhroiigli ' :,. •' "^oljpal wds .the .best pitcher fin the- Pacific Coast 'league. He's 1 33, but Bob Grove at!37'\yas thb'jl'n- est pitcher in ihe mutter of earned runs In our league last season. "The Indians, looking around for n steady soul lip aw, picked Earl Whllchill In a trade with Washington. He is 37. Pat Ma- lonc had a great year with the Yankees. He's 34. Some of the old boys are more valuable than inexperienced recruits." Hornsby also might mention the'fact that Jesse Hatncs wns : (i winner for the Cardinals at 43j ami that the Indians are bringing back the 32-year-old Joe Hevlng ami the 31-year-old Carl Fischer. "I believe that a change from Banquet To. Honor Chicki GridTeam Blylhcvlilc will toast the Chlcka- saws, outstanding claimants of Ihe Arkansas state grid championship for 1930, at a banquet at the Blue Room of the Ho lei Noble tonight. . At least 150 persons are expected to attend the banquet with Clyde "Shorty" Propst, head: coach of Southwestern University at Memphis as'the principal speaker. Besides the talk by Coach Propst the outstanding-event of the evening will probably be the presentation of gold footballs lo members of Uic Chlckasaw squad In honor of their achievement. Clar- mce'H.

The banquet is » public affair and attendance of a large numbei of Chick fans Is expected, tickets being available at a dollar a plate the National to the America! League would help Walker and Hallahan," asserts Hornsby. "I'm not doing any second guessing on Frank Frlsch's judgment. I guess Prank knew what lie was doing when he passed on the left-hand- ers, but he was trying lo win a pennant, "I'm not trying lo win the 1937 pennant. I'm shooting for fifth place, maybe fourth.
