THE BAKERSFIELD CAL1FORNIAN, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31,1932 OLD SPORT YEAR DYING AND READY TO TAKE IT ON LAM NOW TVTBW YORK, Dec. 31. By HENRY McLEMORE Unfted Pr*« Staff Corrfiipa-idsnt The year 19IJ2 Is poised, ready to take It on the -*- 1 lam. Had H not been such a rugged old soul, old 1032 would have •wearied of the way the citizens cussed it and called it quits back in July, or around about tho sixth round. But HH fortitude was not wasted. Old 1032 will leave one thing to shoot at-HWS days pretty well packed with athletic achievements, thrills and surprises. To list all the big sports moments of 1932 would require a book, for It Is a long list, beginning with Southern California's Hose Bowl victory over Tulane und extending right on down to tho Trojans' recent rout of Notre Dame But reVd a few of 1932'a bigger heart stoppers, and then try to recall a year that furnished more: j Tho U. S. No. I bobsled, manned by a millionaire, an Oxford man, u florist and a mechanic, whistling down tho frozen Mount von Heven- berg run a world's record and au- ojher first place for America in the winter Olympics.

Jly CHESTCU TTORTON GOI*T H OU11ATI7HT TRACHJCll (CopyrlRht John IP. 1>11|« Co.) ACTWH AT VMPAC When too much right hand is used, in result of the faulty starts from tho top which we have been discussing, the common effect is that the left hand and left arm quit at tho ball. They don't quit literally—they are submerged under the power of the stronger right arm, tho right elbow Is drawn toward ''',,'; yo\\r right side, '*' ' ''which keeps in under the shaft, the right hand and arm exert a pushing effect against the left arm, helping It, and this automatically im- pel.s the left arm to swing well through the ball, as it should. While the hands appear to "stop," as I have mentioned from time to time, really they do not—they merely pace with tho wrists, which means that at this point the wrist action Is rapid, the hand and arm action is slower. In slow motion pictures It has been shown that the wrists working here cause the right hand to roll completely over tho left, after which tho arms swing on together, working in perfect harmony. However, you cannot consciously direct this. Tho action hero is too fast. Get it by swinging as I have directed. NOTE: What to do when iron shots go blooey.

IEEPSIE MAY BE ABANDONED (United Preps Leased Wire) XBW YOKK, Dec. 31.— The Pough- Ueepslo regatta may not bo held next siimmor, due to curtailment of budgets forcing most, colleges that sponsor rowing to give up the sport. Washington and Wisconsin already have abandoned rowing: for a year, whllo no provision is mnde for It on llift budget of the University of Pennsylvania, It was learned. At Massachusetts Institute of Technology a drastic cut In sport expenditures has been made. Authorities at Cornell and Syracuse arc doubtful that they will have a crew but expect to mako an announcement shortly regarding rowing. California, Navy and Columbia are tho only schools certain of sending crews to Poughkeepsie. Meanwhile It was announced by the Intercollegiate Rowing Association that nothing will be decided ono way or another until after tho meeting of the board of stewards the middle of next month. -l^Bri*»^MV^HHH ONE-MAN TEAM V LOS AX013USS, Dec. 31.

H. ISllsworth Vines, Jr., was that champion, and his second year of magnificent achievement indicated that he will dominate the picture as long a« Dill Tilden dominated—and maybe longer. AVith irre.slstiblo fury and power ho swept opponent after opponent from the courts at Wimbledon without so much as pausing to readjust that strange cap tVmt perches awkwardly atop his gangling six-foot frame. lie went on to Paris to give promise by his brilliant playing that tho Davis Cup coon will return to this country, He came back to America to win the National championship at 20, his second time, and to blast "tho greatest of them all"—Henri Cochet—from the courts In that crushing final. Qualities of Great This young Californlan has some of the captivating qualities of greatness about him, something of Babo Ruth, Jack Dcmpsey and Tilden. British critics, upon his first appearance at Wimbledon, wrote unsparingly of his devastating drive, his swift, sure speed off the ground, his annihilating service and overhead smash. "With no show of Tllden'a fusslness or hauteur, ho walked onto the courts at Wimbledon before 20,000 people, bowed shyly to tho king und queen, pulled that boyish cap down over his ears and blasted every adversary Into the locker rooms. Old-timers who have seen every Wimbledon champion since tho war "could not remember such a combination of speed und tremendous drives as Vines unleuscd. Hlfl back-hand drives streaked across tho nets like Tllden'H cannon-ball fore-hands, and there were whole gumes when hie service was simply unplayable." Only two other men had won at Wimbledon the first time they appeared thero—Tilden In 1920, and Patterson in 1910, but in their debuts, neither was as unbeatable as Vines. Moro than ono Ufitlsli observer labeled the California comet "the greatest lawn tennis player tho world has ever seen," Almost Enough That sounds like almost enough for Mr. Vines—you must know pretty well what ho is like. But a complete portrait cannot bo gained without brushing In. some of that bashful boyishness that is genuinely a part of tho new champion. No temperament! Nothing disturbs or nettles him. Had breaks do not disturb his self-possession. Ho can grin, and when ho does his eyes fold up into narrow silts and his face becomes a masH of wrinkles. BcbtdbB being a champion, Vines IH companionable, likewise unaffected. Helen Gets Wish Tho brnve hope of a national cham- plon.shlp which Hclon Jauohu pursued for aevc-n years dually was realized at j Koreat Hills In August. Since 1025 Hnlcn has been playing In the shadow of Helen WfllH Moody, tho greatest worn/in tennis player of all lime. Tho Wills domination continued ut Wimbledon In July when Miss Jacobs reached thn finals only to bo turned back with consummate ease by that oMior Helen, tho Then it was announced that Mrs. Moody would not compote In the national, that she would remain In Paris to paint and study, In tho companionship of Mr. Mooily. That forecast victory for Miss Jacobs. She sailed through tho girls at Forest Hills, finally overwhelming Miss Carolyn Bubcock of Los Angeles In the final, 8-2, G-2. Next year? Well. Mrs. Moody may decide to play again, and if she do«s the feminine tennis story of 1933 will deal with how well tho other ladles could keep down tho score when play- Ing against her. Great Tennis Year Considered as a whole, it was an American year in tennis. Players from tho United States captured both singles titles from Franco," both singles at Wimbledon, kept our Whitman Cup, successfully repelled the Cochet invasion of these shores and at least threw a biff scare Into Franco in tho PavJs Cup competition.
