Cuts, Wages Must Go Further Down NewiYork, ^Feb. 8. (AP)—Salary cuts for 1932 and the coming 1933 jseason-represent an aggregate saving oiUi million and a qmirter to harassed major league clutj pwners and the end is not yet in sight. Even though they lopped about .-$400,000 off player salaries last year , and virtually^ double that amount fcr 1933, the magnates declare that baseball wages generally speaking, -still are higher than in other lines • of buslhess. j One ^dub owner, attending the ; mid-winter meetings here, said he had slashed his salaries 25 per cent in the last two years as icompared with the 1931 level, but that the total still was twice what it was when his team won a pennant right after the war. • ; Barring a decisive upturn in receipts and attendance thls^ year, club owners are virtually cdmmitted to further retrenchment ne.'ct season.

NEWS OFMORAN Many JFriehds and Relatives Attend Funeral of Homer Vamer, Plo- ; neer Moran Business Man. National league owners, gathering here in mid-winter .session yesterday, dLscussed their most pressing problems foi^ nearly five hours but actually decided definitely upon only two questions: : First; they tightened the regulations afeainst the granting of player bonuses by adopting a rule forbidding any club to deal with its players contingent on where the club finishes in the pennant race. Second, they laid plans to start - East-West competition eariier in the season; . ' • Revised schedule plans provide that National league clubs in the Wiest shall invade the East on May 2. eight days- earlier tlian usual, and that eastern clubs shall make their first western trip May 16, two weeks earlier- than custom. I KANSAS BRIEFS I (By the Associated Press) Kansas City—Max Hoffman, grocer, his sister.

President , John A. Heydler explained that although the majors were in sjinpathy with this proposal ^r any other that would help -the u^inors, that "present complications prevent us from going on ' record; in this matter." "Under present baseball law." he explained, "no club franchise can | , be operated under new^ ownership until past debts and obligations are cleared up." Manhattan — Attorneys for Kansas state fraternities announced last night they would seek a supreme court ruling with regard to payment of penalties on their property taxes.

All you have t6 do is to pick up a newspaper, see who's in the news, and sit .down and write all you. can think of heri him or them. Pick out some; good name in the hews, or some bad name in tlio news, if. you prefer. Somebody always is saying something silly. Today's column, for instance, might .be about Jimmy Johnston, the old Boy Bandit of Broadway. The other day Jimmy ^aid the reason boxing hasn't been bringing the customers lately as of yore is that the boxers themselves are so bad, and it's not the matchmaker's fault. Something snappy might be said in rebuttal. Or, better yet, why not agree with the Boy Bandit, and go on to show to what a low estate boxing really . has sunk. You think it over and take your choice. Weep, if You Will /"in, it you feel sentimental, how " about a sob column? . Poor old Babe Ruth not only faces, a salary slash, bjit ho was left off the baseball writers' all-star team this year—and ithat shows plainly that he's coming to the end. of the trail. Or, there's Buzz Arlett. flic's not good enough for the major leagues, but the big Oriole is the best hitter in tlic minors. Buzz was up with the Phils. He was deemed too awkward In the outfield, even though he could thump that old turnip. Go on from there and tell how he thumped the oUl turnip, ajid be. a little bit funny about how he used to fall down on ground balls. . . * * * Salaries and Magnates 'T'HE baseball magnates have been in the news for several weeks because of the genieral cuts in athletes' wages. You could take Sam Breadon as an example. He says it cost more.than $i00,- 000 to operate the Cardinals last year, so he's going to _operat6 on the Cardinals this year. (A pun don't hurt a column now and men.) Let's see, Sam lists $240,00(5 as the payroll, $70,000 •feconting saliaries and expenses, $45,000 road -expenses during season, $jj,000' park maintenance and and $10,000 for baseSalls. So what will Mr. Breadon do about it? He will cut salaries-25 per cent, that's what he will do about It. You might say to yourself that $70,000 seems like an awful pile of money, for scouting. But you couldn't write that, of course, because it might bo a reflection on Mr. Breadon's books, and the next world scries might be in St. Louis, and |you might want some tickets for some friends from Alton. Maybe, after,all, it is better not to write anything about Mr. Breadon. who seems to be a pretty good guy after all, taking Hornsby into the fold as he did atter"llic Rajah had boen manhandled by Judge Landis. ,Mr. and Mrs, J, J. O'Mara were surprised Friday afternoon w'heri their nephew, William Vaughey. of Philadelphia, Pa., arrived at their home for a short visit. It was!the first time they had seen him for several J^ears.

Here's a clipping from a friend.: It quotes Fred Schultc, the player traded by the Browns to the Senators, as saying he was pleased with his new contract and the $1000 raise tliat Clark Grifiith gavo him.

You might write a piece about what could bo done with $1000 in these times, if yon had it. Then there's Sharkey. Suppose you feel all out of sorts. Maybe a street car ran over your foot on your way down town. Or maybe a bus driver wouldn't pull over so you could pass. The natural thing to do is, to write a column about Sharkey. a • Bust That Trust! •DOSTON operatives report that Sharkey visited his stable- mate, Ernie Schaat,_ln whom ho also has a managerial interest, when Ernie was in a hospital recently suffering from flu. He grew very friendly to the boy, promising; him that if he (Sharkey) ever, fought again, h'e would force his opponent to post a forfeit beforehand binding him (the opponent) to fight Schaat| in case he (the opponent) liked Sharkey.
