PAGE SIX THE TOLA DAILY REGISTER, TUESDAY EVENING. JANUARY BABE RUTH NOT WORRYING OVER CUT IN SAURY Although He Was a Prodigal, Bambino Is Fixed For Life Now ON THE ALLEYS 25 30 32 (By Alan Gould.) New York. Jan. 31 (AP)—No one, including Babe Ruth himself, seems to be doing a great deal of worrying about whether, the big fellow takes a $25,000 "cut" m salarj- this year, , The Babe doesn't need to, although he will be astute enough to effect a compromise, Ifnhat is necessary, before he signs his 1933 contract. As we' sa t down to talk things over; past and present: h9 dismissed the Salary business with this side remark: T ''It 's a good thing I walloped that ' home run in the third Kume of the world series or they might have n.-iked me to take a $50,000 cut. I sure got tliat one when I needed it." Baseball 's fair-haired "boy," now ^ nonrlng 40 and about, to start his twentieth j;ear in the major leagues, hns Rcneraily gained what he heeded o^ what he desired. Se is "fixed," financially, for life, no matter whether he quit baseball tomorrow but lie has no moi ^e idea of quitting , -.baseball, this year or next, than he has of taking a parachute jump off the Empire State building. Spent §100,000 One Year. The Babe has Iknown the year when-he squandered close to $100,000. -He ,admits-it. Things were ' - so tliat, ' at , "one time, on the 'insistence of Miller Hugglns. half of Ruth's $52,500 salary with the Yankees was kept by the club until the end of the season. But Ruth "blew it" "fis soon as he got the i cash, ianj-way. '• . The; elderly home run slugger now lives the life of an urban, squire "^during the off-season. Aside from his family and evenings at home,; his main interests are in playing golf, soinp hunting or fishing, attending the mbvies once or twice a week. It rosfe him probably from $15,000 to $20,000 a year for living expenses of the entire Ruth household. Tlie rest, goes into the "sock," he says. Ruth has enough invested now in annuity or income contracts to guarantee him. at any time he retires, upward of $20,000 a year. He hns protected his \^ife and daughters with similar investments. He ixever dabbled much in the stock market anj 'T ^-ay. though .he is somewhat proud of the fact he came off with a profit when he did. He doesn't like to gamble for high ^take.". Plve-doUar "Nassau" at golf .suits him. • Beer Days Gone. Between his. outdoor hobbies and his gymnasium work, the Babe keeps in good physical condition the year-round. The days are gone when he could and did set the pace in any;brewery beer-drinking contest on start off the day with a light breakfast of steak, potatoes, plo and a half dozen cups of cof- •fcc. He weighs around 228 these days, looks healthierrthan ever, savs his legs eiVe him no trouble dur- ._ing a day 's 36 holes of golf. Ruth has never broken 70 on the links, though he touched that figure once at St. Petersburg, but he has been 1 shooting consistently around 75^76 in his winter rounds -at the gt. Albans club.

DALADIER SUCCEEDS New French Government Formed and Named to President Lebmn. Paris, Jan. 31. (AP)—Edouard Daladier, radical socialist party leader, completed today the formation of a new F^rench government and presented his cSbinet to President Albert Lcbrun. The ministry was dei>endent upon the socilallst party's support and its tenure;of office therefore was precarious as the socialists today .showed discontent by voting against the February, credits to carry the government expenses, i Preniier. Daladier will present his cabinet to the chamber of deputies on Friday. The cabinet was the same as that of former Premier Joseph Paul-Bon- cour, who was overthrown Saturday, iexcept for - seven new faces. These were.Senators Penancier and Serre; and Deputies Appell, Pagan- on, Albert, Hulin, and Lamoureux. M. Paul-Boncour is minister of foreign affairs. It was one of the smallest cabinets in recent years, containing 18 deputies and four senators. The veteran, Paul Painleve, former premier and aviation minister under M. Paul-Bpncour, was forced to retire beca,use of ill health. H? was connned to his apartment for the past several weeks and friends said he probably never would be able to assume a cabinet post again. NEBRASKA WINS ANOTHER GO Serond Straight Big Six Victory Places Iluskfers Fourth. Berlin, Jan. 31. (AP)—Police were kept busy today dispersing Communist gatherings to protest elevation of Adolf Hitler to the chancellor­ ship and confiscating iiiflammatory literature. The Commimist central committee in Berlin published an appeal for a general strike. ConMnimist handbUls urging open rebellion were confiscated in Madgeburg and the Communist newspaper Rote Pahne was suppressed In Dresden. Police kept moving all night in various cities of the reich, separating hostile groups. Berlin police rer ported two slain-a policeman and a Nazi—12 injured and 50 arrested since last midnight. Many others were wounded and_arrested in Nazi Communist clashes during the day yesterday after the little National Sociaiist chieftain was sworn in. Berlin's "Wall Street" was .the scene of a tumultudus demonstration at noon today by uniformed Nazi students from a nearby! imiver^ity. About 600 demonstrators marched by the Bourse building shouting, "Profiteers!" and other abusive words at the Bourse members. Police dispersed the' crowd.; Anti-National Socialist - demonstrations. In which a score were more or less seriously injured, occurred at Duesseldorf, Halle, Offeri- | bach, Schweinfurt, and Hlrschberg. As the day wore on it became evident that the Communist strike agitation was making no impression among the city's factory workers and police said a general strike seemed impossible. ' BRUSHING UP - - - By Laufer MORE HOLDOUTS ON LIST Jim Bottomley Dissatisfied $5000 Cut by Reds. with Lincoln. Neb., ,Tan. 31. (AP)—'With Steve Hokuf setting the pace, tlie University of Nebraska Huskers annexed their second straight Big Six ba.sketball -victory here last night by defeating Imva State 25 to 16. In.iccurate pas.slhg and inability to county from the field prevented V)oth teams from making much headway in the oi^ening period which ended. 8 to 7 in favor of the Huskers. Hokuf, guard, put liis team in front at the half and over the entire route accounted for 13 points. Thp result left Nebraska still entrenched in fourth place, and sent the Cyclones down into a sixth place tie with Kans.is State. Enterprise Foundry Bum .H. Enterprise, Kas., Jan. 31.

Newton, Kas., Jan. 31. (AP)—A. R. Hiirford, 70. pioneer mercjiant and former city commissioner of Newton, died of heart disease here today. New York, Jan. 31. (AP)—Baseball's winter complaint, holdout fever, has struck in two new quarters. Frankie Frisch, veteran second baseman of the St. Louis Cardinals, and Jim Bottomley of the -Cincinnati Reds, twth have revealed dissatisfaction with the terms offered them for 1933. "I'm, not going to send my contract back," Frisch said, but neither ain I going to sign it. I think It can be straightened out more satisfactorily In a conference with Sam Breadon and Branch Rickey than through the malls." Priscih declined to say what the contract called for but In view of the Cardinals' announced policy of big salary slices,, some baseball obser\-ers believed Franklc probably had not been offered much more than half the $18,500 he was reported to have received last season. Bottomley, sent to the Reds by the Cardinals during the off season, said he had been offered a contract for $8,000, a cut of $5,000, which he malntalris was too much. The Yankees made . no progress with their list of holdouts which in- chtdes Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ben Chapman and Jolinny Allen, but announced they had received signed contracts from Wiley Moore, Walter Brown, Lyn Laiy. Bill Werber. Sam Byrd and Marvin Duke. The Giants signed Bill Shores,' former pitcher for the Philadelphia Athletics. OTTAWA VSPA\«SO(JeK 1905-., SEEK CLUE TO TORCH KILLING !

IP YOU MISS THE REGISTER CALL 157 OR 520. WILLIAM BRAU04ER Thirteen Years After TN 1920 the major leagues decided nioislure -was a horrid word. A list of big leaguers who then Kifixa using tiie spitball was duly posted. These pitchers would be alloyed to continue with it, but new ~ arrivals were foriildden to dampen the spheroid. Seventeen men were on that preferred list. In the National LeaRue they were Bill Doak, Phil DouRlas, Dana Filiingim, Ray Fislier, Marvin Goodwin, Burleigh . Grimes, Clarence Mitchell and Dick Rudolph. In the American League the hien were Urban Faber, Jack Quinn, A. Ayers, Ray Caldwell, Stanley Coveleskle, Dutch Leonard, Allan Russell, Urban Shocker and Allan Sothoron. ; Three of the seventeen men remain In the majors. Red Faber, Jack Quinn and Burleigh Grimes. Mitchell, the only southpaw who Buccessfully used the spitter, was released by the Giants recently -after twenty-three and a half successful years of spitball pitching. GHmes will be 40 in .\ugust, ^ Faber will be 45 in September and I j used, the -wet one. But .Doak pitched for 15 years in the National League, continually using the Epit- ter. Quinn will be 4S (at least) in July. • • • tt Must Have Been Tough! THHE age at which these three venerable squires are carrying .on pays tribute not only to the efficacy-of the damp delivery, but to . the hitters of other days. It is a Wonder that when 17 flingers were fooling the boys with it there were any .300 hitters at all. If soupbones between 40 and 45 years'of age still can function with the spitter in a young man's game. It must be pretty hot stutf. f I Fifteen years ago managers almost unanimously agreed that use of the moistened marble was hard bn the arm and shortened a pitcher's career. But the three old men ,\vho still go on flinging it declare pt Is a restful delivery, and with-j Jonathan Zachary. out it they would have been on There are more men of course their way to the : Old Soldiers' ' than Grimes, Quinn and Faber us- jHome years ago. | ing the spitball in the majors. But Curve Pulls Muscles Tl/riTCHELL explained his longev- -'•••ity like this: The fast ball demands full pressure ou the arm. The curve pulls muscles and causes shoulder -kinks. But the spitter is' an easy and restful delivery. The moisture- does the work, causing tlie ball to take peculiar twists around the plate. Faber, \yho is starting his 20th season with the While Sox, says the spitter alone has kept him in the game. He took up the spitter because he had a sore arm when he was with Minneapolis 22 years ngo. And he hasn't had a lame arm since. When Big Ed Walsh's arm folded up years ago, the master minds declared it was use of the spitter that spoiled the souper. Faber has an answer for that, too. lied says it was overwork that ruined Ed. adding, "If I had to take my regular turn in the box 'and also act as relief pitcher a couple of times a week, would have been through years ago, too." The ban on the emery ball, shine ball, spitter, mud ball and thumbnail-tampering have shortened the careers of major league pitciiers. With only fast balls, curves, and knucklers with which to fool the boys, the strain on the arm soon begins to tell the story. Ten-Year_Men Few 'T'EN years is a long time for a pitcher to be up'there nowadays. The only exceptions among men pitching last year that come to inind are Jesse Haines, Waite Hoyt, Sam Jones, Adolfo Luque, Firpo Marberry, Jakie May, Herb Pennock, Eppa Ri.xey, Ed Rommel, George Uhle. Dazzr Vance and Miller Hugglns, upon the occasipu' nf ^5111 Doak's debut with .the Car- I (JlDBlfi expressed rejret that Peak they'd llKe,. they - must do It surreptitiously-, and can't get away with It as often By this bouldei;—known as "Six>ok Riock" from Indian leg,end—on an isolated countrj- road between Spring Valley and SuffreUv N : Yi, the body of a woman—almost budlstinguishable after being burned—was found by a farmer who was attracted by the ismofee rising over the top of the boulder.

BLOW TO RAILROADS uilf or Bntohend Livestock Bides on Babber to Market. Chicago. Jan. 31. (AP)—Half the butchered livestock ini the United States rodei to market on rubber tires last year. Motor truclcs transported more than 23 million head from farm to market during 1932. This was 41 per cent of total receipts at 17 principal marketing centers In the nation and measured a gain of 10 per cent over 1931, a compilation by the com belt farm dailies said. Receipts at the 17 markets by truck during the year; totaled 23,385,456 bead, the year before the total was 21.162,430. In 1925, less than 10 per cenfc was transported by truck, the total behig 5,378368 head. These totals, however, comprised only a portion of the livestock handled by truck. At dozens of smaller markets and Interior packing plants nearly all receipts were trucked In. No record of these Is |avBllable nor of the iTumber transported from farm to railroad sidings. | It was estimated -1 [925,000 truck loads were required to deliver the 23 million head to markets.'] The ave-' rage haul was 89 mlle^, but trips of approximately 500 miles were by no means rare. ' i It would take approximately 370,- OOO freight cars to carry all these animals. This would ; be approximately 5,000 train of 75 cars each.
