Wordt will be many and loud the cries, But' never fear, they'll compromise. TVTEW YORK, Jan. 15. — Babe ** Ruth/baseball's highest salaried pltVer, fired the first gun In the big 1933 holdout war by rejecting a one-year contract from the New York Yankees because It contained a reduction—of probably ?15,000. *The war was expected to flare out on all fronts today as players 'throughout the nation received registered . letters containing depression ' contracts. Ruth'apparently was not upset. "When I saw the figures In that contract. I knew right away someone was ktddmg me," he said, grinning '*broadly as he sorted out some brand new phonograph records. ' "It's a little too early for Valentine's day, so 'I didn't appreciate tho joke. What did I do? I mailed the •contract right back where It came from. One look at those figures—" "What figures, Babe?" "I'll let the club tell you about that. All I can say Is that their offer wasn't enough—not by a long shot. And I'll not sign at those figures." Colonel Jacob Huppert, Jovial owner of the Yankees, would add little to Babo'a announcement when he i was cornered at his brewery. He declined to reveal the figures, but admitted the contract "contained a reduction." This. sham.bat tie between Ruth and Ruppert Is a part of the baseball season* • Varying Amounts Although one source fixes the reduction at $15,000, others believe U was $20,000. Jjast year Ruth received $75,OoO on a one-year contract. Some observers predict that Ruppert has offered a $20,000 slash, hoping to compromise at $10,000. . Ruth denied emphatically that he was "slipping." He said he could play as good as ever. "Perhaps nol no fast on my feet out there In right field"—but he could still land on the • "old apple." He said he was In training and was -within two pounds of playing weight, "right" now." « »e» KIECKHEFER LOSES By JOHNNY LAYTON <T«n Tlmn Wwls't 9-Ouihl»n •llllv< Chumiltn) (Wrlltas EMlvdnly fir UsIM Prut) ,, CHICAGO, Jan. 17.—Augle Kleck'- efer, defending champion In the orld's three-cushion 'billiard .tourna- ient, lost the'.opening contest last Ight to Clarence Jackson of Detroit n a brilliant battle. Kleckhefer bowed to tho Detroit eteran only after 58 Innings of play which had the gallery on Us feat con- tantly. The final score Was 50 to 48 or Jackson. Kleckhefer got away to an early ead but Jackson, aided by runs of tx and seven In his two best Innings, won by the "breaks of'tho game." In saying that Jackson scored his victory by the breaks of tho game I am not belittling tho Detrolter's play- ng ability', but the contest was so 'ven that the determining factor was he rolling of the Ivories on a new able. Jackson showed well In the ellmlna- lon rounds and every player In tho >resent meet will find that the De- rolt cueist Is of real championship caliber, If one may judge by his exe-. Button, ring generalship and ner\ve displayed last night. I expect Kleckhefer, Rolsclt, Hall and Cochran to bo my most serious competitors In my attempt to land the world's angle crown for the eleventh :lme.
