The report, of course, Is ridiculous. It Is well known among theatrical folk that the sisters Cherry, arlists to their fingertips, made It a rule always to insert ono new step, one new gag, one new song or one new stooge in their act each year. And the 1983 Huppert and Ruth show, judging by the first act, is the same routine the veteran team has been putting on since tho boys Joined up years ago. The show still opens with Ruth, growing old now, seated by the fireplace in his cozy little Riverside Drive apartment, talking to his wife. One op Two More "You know, hones'," the Babe says, pattipg his wife's hand as the cur- •tnln rises. "You know, honey, I ain't got but one of two more good years out thero in the old pasture. But don't you worry, they're going to be good ones. Squire Iluppert hasn't said anything about it, but I know he's going to do right by me. ' And honey, if we pinch a little these next two years, we'll be able to have both yachts paid for, a million in the bank and that ermine farm thing all cleaned up, when I get too old to give that apple a ride." Mrs. Ruth interrupts to ask Babe how he feels. "Honey," tho Babe replies, "don't you tell anybody, but my legs ain't spry as they used to be, and my wind is klnda short. And I bruise pretty easy. I ^uess playing in every game ivoifld nigh on t.o kill me, but I cughta got in around a 100 this seupon." The postman arrived nnd hands liabe a letter. In it Is his 1933 contract. In which Squire Ruppert offers him $50,000. Babe takes one look at the figure and files into a deep-dish rage. "What does Ruppert think I am," he thunders as the reporters swarm through the door, "Why here it Is two months before the season opens and me but two pounds overweight. I never felt better m my life. My legs are hard-as brick* and my wind" is like that of a marathon runner." A reporter suggests that maybe Kuppert figures Babe is getting old, 'and won't be able to play in many games. ''What! Why, I'll be In there every day, and getting my knocks, too." ' : Returns Contract Tho contract, unsigned, is dropped in the mall chute. Every American citizen knows the next two acts, which require nearly twfl months. Babe keeps repeating his refusal to play for such a sum. Squire Ruppert, from his office high in his brewery, issues statement after statement Insisting Ruth might just as well give In for that's all he wll! get. Then the scene shifts. It is St. Petersburg. The Yanks are In training, all save Ruth who spends his day playing golf to nhow Squire Ruppert he's sulking. There Is nn accidental meeting between the two. They fall into one another's arms. "I'll give you $63,000," says Squire Ruppert. "I'll take it." answers the Babe. Tho curtain falls. BRUINS WIN LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18. (U. P.)— The U. C. L.

The limit of reach by tho left arm, as I have previously explained, causes the olubhead to turn nnd go straight forward and through the ball, its faoo being squared a fraction of a second before it reaches the ball. The reverse of this is tho theory that dragging the club face across the ball imparts spin to it nnd causes it to slice, Jt Is doubtful If anything like that really happens. In Michigan last fall I took occasion to make an exhaustive study of slice and hook causes, and found that it was virtually impossible to make the ball slice by cutting the clubhead across it. This upsets long- established theories about slicing. . I can state now n new scientific knowledge of slicing.

Some of the stars arc unreservedly for It, others are opposed, and a few favor a compromise', something like 5 or 6 inches. ' ,&.',' All agree that increasing tho size of the cups would bring a greater thrill to the galleries. Dleget's Idea T^eo DIcgel speaking: "Great. Tho players who get close to tho pin would get their putts down. I have thought a circle around tho cup and others farther out with points to be scored in proportion to the position of the ball in relation to the pin would be a good thing." Craig Wood, winner of three winter tournaments, is satisfied with the game as It is. "I thljik the game should bo left alone," said Wood. , Olln Dutra, P. G. A.' champion, suggested 8 inches would be' too big. (Aanociatcd Press Leased Wire I 4 "About 5 would better," said Dutra. Charlie Guest also voted for a promise. "For experimental purposes it might be hotter to try u-lnch cups," said Guest. Paul Hunyan, winner of the* recent Agua CtUlento tournament, thought bigger iups would result in shorter courses and tighter greens. "I'd 'like to see It tried," ho said. "Certainly* the spectators would get a greater thrill from wntchtng the play, nnd bigger galleries would result no doubt. But I think it would place a big premium on tho long game HO the courses .should bo shortened and tho greens made smaller." Thompson Agpeeft Jimmy Thompson, the long hitter from Colorado Springs, agreed. "Surely, It would he a good thing for tho long game. Tho long hitters would faro much better under tho proposed change. I'm for it." "Fine," said Al Esplnosa, "the cup would look like a bath tub. I'd like to putt the-ball In* a bath tub." Johnny -Dawson, low amateur In three, winter tournaments; thought it would be an interesting experiment. ('Associated Pros* Leaned Wire) CHICAGO.

The east meets the west-tomorrow night when husky Oki Shikina, Japanese grappler, tangles with Harold Kruskamp on the mat at the Granada theater on Kentucky street.
