IF YOU MISS THE REGISTER GALL Mil OR !i2n - CLAR^ GRIFniV HAS PROBLEMS TO SOLVE BEFORE TAKIMG FLAG Old Fox Wants Better Catchen, Joe Cranin to Pan Oat and Travis to Develop Into Third Basbnan BRUSHING OP SPORTS r--By Lanfer Washington, Jan. 9. (AP)—Clark Griffith laid down his pinochle hand, arched his busy eyebrows and opined to the newspaper boys that there were four big problems between his Washington Senators and the Ainerican league pennant. With a friendly grin at Frankie Baxter, the bat boy who had been playing a prominent role. In the pinochle ! game, Griffith touched a match to his dead cigar and gave the foiu: as: Joe Comln, and will he fit into his new dual, role of shortstop and manager? I Development of Rookie Cecil Travis with third base in mind, the job now held by the veteran Ossie Bluege. ' A training at Biloxi, Miss., that will put the Senators in Aghtlng trim and on their toes for opening here with Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics. Cronln, stepping into the managerial shoes of Walter Johnson, who brought the Senatois home in third place last season, will be do- ipg his first trick as a player-manager and he's only 26. But Griffith, with memories of Bucky Harps and his 1924 and 1925' In iiilnd, has a lot of faith in Joe. The club owner, who has learned in organized baseball the title of 'The Old Fox," in recent weeks has been up to his swapping tricks in an effort to build up a winner for Cronln' next fall. In the several trades of the last month, Griffith has sought to build lip the batting punch of the Senators. The most recent deal which Griffith let leak out Saturday' brings Luke Sewell of Cleveland here to catch in place of Roy Spencer, who went to the Indians in exchange. Sewell on his record Is a bit better at clouting than Spencer and each fielded .978 last season. In Cecil Travis, a big 20-year-old country boy from Riverdale, Oa., Griffith has the makings of an In- flelder for whom he turned down $50,000 last year. In 1931, Travis clouted .429 in 18 games with Chattanooga, and last. year, playing in 152, banged his Way to an average of .362. / A 'a K IbRAPORSe CP f7t)° NEWS OF MORAN Mrs. W. i.

While imrading the streets doing advertising, Jumboi suddenly turned himself crosswise and stopped, tie- ing up a long line of cars. His owner got.a ticket. Washhigton, Jan. 9. (AP)— Believers in the nation's most colorful armed force—the marine corps—are entrenched for the' fast-develophig congressional .contest over whether 1,700 more "devil dogs" shall be sent back to civil life. . The dispute brought on by President Hoover's budget recommendation that the strength of the corps be, reduced from 15,343 to 13,600 to save money, isj certain to stir "iip a heavy fire of debate before the issue Is settled. - • j The next step against the "cut will be taken this week when the house naval affairs' committee receives a report from a special subcommittee holding that the budget recommendation should be overridden, And evidence obtained by the naval subcommittee In lengthy hearings will be presented; to: support that contention. In 1931, opponents of the reduction will say, the marine corps was allowed 18,000 men. Hence the accumulated reduction, including that proposed by i the budget, would amount to 24:4 per'cent. In addition In the words of Major General Ben H. Fuller, corps commandant, the 1700 reduction would save only $359,000 out of a 5-bllllon- doUar budget. It Is argued, too. that the army and navy have not suffered proportional cuts, in personnel, and thjat the marine corps . reduction would be harmful. Although soriie naval officers call the marines "glory grabbers." the highest officials in the navy believe they perform a very important func- tiori and that their strength should be maintained. By an unsixiken international agreement, marines can be landed In foreign countries without the occupation constituting: an act of war. tions Instead of legislatures 'R ^as ' defeated 8 to 6.

McNary said, and then proceed'.*lth the Glass bill, possibly reaclilrig a vote on that before the end of the day If a compromise now being negotiated Is worked-out.
