WILLfAM BRAUO^ER Griff Gets 'Em Back jN 1930, Clark Griffith sent Loon •»• Allen Goslln, local boy from Salem, N. J., to the St. Louis Browns in excliange for Heinle Maiiush and General Alvin Crowder. Tlic other day the Old Fox recalled the Galloping Goose. Now lie lias all three—Manusli, Crowder ani Goslln—and in those three men has two of the finest outfielders and one of the best pitcher.s in baseball. There were stories of differences betweeni Walter Johnson and the Ooosc when Goslin fell down so badly in 1929, hitting only .288. Now that Walter has gone along, Grifiith evidently has made up his mind that Goslin i,s a pretty handy fellow to have around. i • o * • Biff! Bang! Bong! TF Goslin'has a normal year in 153"—and that means a batting avferage of .325—and Manush has another year such as he had. in the last season—that means a batiiuK.average of ;342—it is not hard to figure that the Washington bhU club is going to come up with enough tallies to embarrass those Yankees. Add to that the hitting of Harris, Cronin and Rice and you have some lusty echoes for your American League ball parks. . ., The story ol Goslin's arm is one o£ the heroic sagas of baseball. He strained his arm before the spring training season of 1928, putting the. shot with some kids in a high .school track meet. When he at- tenipted to throw a baseball in the south, the wing gave way.. "When 1 raivd the old souper lo throw," Goslin told nie at Chattanooga; "it sounded just .like toarin.g a piece of gunnysack. The no.\t day i*. got sore, and I cauldn't hcavo the thing 10 feet." 4 » « Cronin Great Help TTC had to ibb the ball in from rt^the outfield, being unable to raise '.he arm above his head— and that's where Joe Cronin came ] ia. On every ball hit to Goslia'a territory, Cronin raced, far back, took a short 16b from the Goose aiid heaved the ball wherever, it was needed. Cronin actually was left fielder and shortstop during the year of 1928, and Goslin took his lame arm to bat for an average of .379, beating out Heinle Manush for the league championship by a single point. "The GQOsej who won his nickname by reason of his beakliko proboscis and gander-like eyes, started out in life to become a pitcher. Your old friend,: Big Shot Will McGowan, American League lirnpire, w^orked a ; ball game between Salem and a neighborhood rival back in 1919. On the strength of the.Goose's work. Mack, wired a recommendation of the young man to the manager of the; Columbia, S. C., team!in the Sally League. * • • Need That Clouting' •jV/TAC always has been a shrewd. judge of ball players, and Goslln was given a tryout lajgely through Mac's influence He appeared in 90 games for Colupibia in 1920, pitching six vie ories and hitting .316. The following year they dispensed with his pitching, and he roamed the outfield in 142 games, hitting .390. Since he has been with'Wash­ ington and St. Louis—12 years in all—;he has hit for an average of arqund .320. During ike world seriel of 1924 he combed the apple for .344, and In the ifollowing, year hit .308. . • When the Goose first camejup, pitchers followed their usual cus-i torn pf "dusting off" a rookie who, was a promising looking fellow at bat. The Goose didn't like it. The word went ' ardund the league, "Get two 8tFike\| on Goslin and he's yours." But Bill Killefer, c^nny old catcher who manages the Browns; was asked about this "two strikes" story, and replied: "Yeah? Well, I'd hate to ibe a pitcher in a pinch and think; that because I had two strikes on tho Goose, I could groove the next one!" ' - • ' New Orleans, Dec. 31.

Moscow, Dec..31. (AP)—Twenty- two Communist party leaders In the South Volga region, includhig. the secretary of the regional party committee and the director of the tractor station, were ordered to trial today for "betrayal of the "workers class" in permitting severe crop losses and penetration of anti-Soviet elements into the rural Ufe in the districts of Nizhnlchirsky and Ko- telnlkov. This action, which undoubtedly means expulsion from the party for most if not all of them, is one of the first direct results of the recently published order for. nation-wide cleansing of the Communist party ranks. • , The mien are charged with Improper organization of the spring and winter sowing and inadequate supervision of the harvest which resulted hi the thrcshhig of only 25,000 hectares of a total of 142,000 sown, and consequent failure to fulfill the goverimient's grain collection quotas. Most of the wheat in the remaining acreage is still standing in the fields, a total loss. Also the men are charged w-ith submitting false figures on the extent of cultivation, and with only permitting Kulkaks, or Independent farmers, and other anti-Soviet elements, to enter collective farms, but to penetrate the ranks of rural Soiviets and regional party apparatus as well. ^ PtKE'S PEAK WilNTBT PLACE Scoiits of aiinintidi CUmbers Find Wtaid and Cold.

ASKS CARE FOR BOYS Senator Conzens Would Protect Young Transients in Federal Army Camps Washington, Dec. 31. (AP)-;-Open the army posts and facilities, to America's Jobless youths so they can be cared for by trained officers. That is the prorxwal of Senator Gouzens, wealthy Michigan Republican, who has become deeply concerned with the host of imfortimate young boys who wander from city to city seeking work. In saying; today that he vrill introduce legislation to have them cared for and fed by the army, Couzens disclosed that he had discussed his plan with President Hoover and Red Cross officials and would press for early action in congress. Boy Problem Acute. ' He characterized the "transient boy" problem as one of the most important before 'the countrj- and estimated on the ttasis of incomplete figures that at least 300.000 to 400,000 boys under 21 years of age are tramping the highways. "The transient boy has been the cause of much writing, discussion and concern," Couzens said, "flealr izing the value of the boy, I called on President Hoover December 22 to see if there was not some way that the federal government could interest Itself in him. "I discussed "Wth the\ president the passage of a^ Joint resolution authorizing'the war department to throw open Its faclUtles for the proper care of the transient boy. Too Big For States. "While some thlhk it is a state problem, it is entirely Impossible for the states separately to take care- of the sitiititlon. The mere announcement thkt a state was prepared to look iafter the welfare of these transient boys would.undoubt­ edly bring about a trek , to that state. ' ' ^ •Therefore it seems to me It must be solved through action of the fed­ eral'goyemment. My suggestion Is not made' from any charitable or philanthropic motive because I'm convinced that many of these boys would not subject themselves to any such treatment. In Interest of Nation. "When the many training cataps were in operation diirtng the war. these twys went In the interest of their countrj'. In my Judgment It ,is just as much in the Interest of the country that the facUitles should be. provided now if the future is to t)e approached inteUi- gently.
