THE BAKERSFIELD'CALIFORNIAN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1933 11 SPORTS ; •.; •• . Use of Hands, Pass and Penalties Come Up for Discussion By PAUL ZIMMERMAN Aumlited Preee 8port« Writer M T OS ANGELES, Jan. 31.—Howard » J- 1 'Harding Jones, who ordinarily IfliJeps his tongue when the matter of * football rules changes is dls cussed, broke his silence today with . some pertinent remarks anent ' - passes, use of the hands and things. «> • To sum It all up, the University of Southern California's highly successful mentor thinks the illegal use of tho hands rule should be enforced or abolished. Pernicious pass- Ing should have a greater penalty and : the sideline play should bo eliminated. "If the officials aren't going to enforce the penalty for Illegal use of the hands," said Troy's head man, "and I : dldn't see it enforced all last year, then I say take the rule out and let everybody use 'em.. Ten-Yard Penalty "Fifteen yards penalty^might be too much for the second incomplcted pass in the same series of downs. Ten Ih- stead of tho present' five would be about right. Then add 15 more for tho third pass that fails. If a. team starts throwing the ball to the winds let it pay for it." •Coach Jones Is emphatically In favor of moving the ball in 15 yards from the sidelines should it be carried five yards or leas from the boundary. "The sidelines play Is just a waste of time slnoo few ever are worked for sains and almost ne.ver for touch- Ijpwns." •' The Trojan coach, who, with Lou Little of Columbia and Noble Klzer of Purdue, will sit in with tho rules committee as advisers when it meets in New York, doesn't particularly care whether the rule Is lifted requlr- •• Ing that nil forward passes must be made from^'five yards back of tho line of scrimmage. Take His Chances "If a team Is willing to take Its chances of throwing a pass closer than that to the line, my teams would be willing to take tho chance of having them completed." Coach Jones said he had no Intentions of suggesting any rules changes at 'the meeting In regard to passes but if Coach Little makes 'his ideas known there he would be inclined to offer an opinion or two. This business of the use of hands is another thing 1 . I think my team could learn to use Its hands, too. You know there was no penalty about anything like that when I played at Yale." 1MAS AND RAMAGE EM 1EMS (United Press Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES, Jan. 31.—Steve Hamas and Lee Ramage have been signed to meet in a local "elimination contest" to decide a winner who will meet Mickey Walker, Olympic Auditorium officials announced today. Hamas and Ramage have clashed twice previously with each' holding a decision." The' third match will be staged on February 28 and Is scheduled for 10 rounds. It will be tho second "elimination match" In which Ramage has appeared in recent weeks as a step toward meeting the Jersey toy bulldog. Before defeating Tuffy Griffiths, the San Diego heavyweight had been itomlsed a bout with "Walker but th promise never exceeded that stage. Olympic officials said Walker's manager, Jack Kearns, has "verbally 1 agreed that his charge would meet Hamas or Ramage.

BABE TAKES IT ON THE CHIN A little jolt on the chin from Julia, his adopted daughter, doesn't bother Babe Ruth much. But a $25,000 Jolt from Colonel Jacob Ruppert, boss man of the New York Yankees, is Just too much, the Babe opines. The above picture, showing Babe doing a bit of catching, with daughter Julia pitching, was taken as they worked out In a New York gym. By ALAN GOULD Attoolatrd Pren Sport! Editor ]"EW YORK, Jan. 31.—No one. in- I But Ruth "blew It" as soon as he sot x ^ eluding Babe Ruth himself, seems o bo doing a great deal of worrying: ibout whether the big fellow takes a 125,000 "cut" In salary this year. The Babe doesn't need to, although 10 will be astute enough to effect a' compromise, if that Is necessary, be"ore he signs his 1933 contract. As ve sat down to talk things over, past ind present, he dismissed tho salary business With this side remark: "It's a good thing I walloped that lome run In the third game of the vorld series or they might have asked me to take a $50,000 cut. I sure got hat one when I needed it." Nearing Forty Baseball's fair-haired "boy," now nearlng,- 40 and about to start his .wentieth year in the major leagues, has generally gained what he needed or what he desired. He Is "fixed," Inanclally, for life, no matter whether he quits baseball tomorrow, but ho las no more dca of quitting baseball .his year or next than he has of tak- hg a parachute jump off the Empire State building. The Babe has known the year when ho squandered close to $100,000. He admits It. Things were so bad that, at one time, on the insistence of Miller Huggins, half of Ruth's $52,500 salary with the Yankees was kept by the club until the end of the season. the cash, anyway. 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 flaying golf, going hunting or fishing, attending the movies once or twice a week. It costs him probably from $15,000 to $20,000 a year for living expenses of the entire Ruth household. Tho rest goes into the "sock," he says. Money Salted Away Ruth has enough Invested now In annuity or income contracts tc guarantee him, at any time he retires, upward of $20,000 a year. He has protected his wife and with similar Investments. daughters He never dabbled much in the stock market anyway, though he is somewhat proud of tho fact he came off with a profit when he did. He doesn't like to gamble for high stakes. Five-dollar "Nassau" at golf suits him. Between his outdoor hobbles and his gymnasium work, the Babe keeps In good physical condition the year- round. The days are gone whan he could and did set the pace in any brewery beer-drinking contest or start off the day with a light breakfast of steak, potatoes, pie and a half dozen cups of coffee. He weighs around 228 these days, looks healthier than ever, says his legs give him no trouble during a day's 36 holes of golf. WARNER OFFERS VIEWS ON WORK AI NElpOOl Good Little Men Are as Good as Good Big Men He Says (Antedated Prom Leaned Wife) PHILADELPHIA, Jan. si.—Glenn **• S. (Pop) Warner, who combines landscape painting and business with his career as a football coach, believes that on the gridiron a good little man may be Just a« valuable as a good big man. Thus, the "old fox," new head grid conch at Temple University, exploded one of tho countless preferences and characteristics attributed to him when told Ihnt the football, material at Temple 7nay be lighter than that ho has been handling at Stanford and elsewhere. "The size of tho material," he rte- i.lared, "does not change the fundamentals of football. It' a llttlo man can do the things requirud of him, he can have a position on any team I coach. "Out at Stanford the men were big, so, naturally, I used big men. For that reason, I have gained the reputation of favoring big men, but that Is not so." First Visit Warner, here on his first visit to Philadelphia since accepting the new berth at Temple, held a brief powwow with the university officials yesterday and then discussed at length some of the topics that have been uppermost in the minds of gridiron fans since his appointment. Predicting great things for Temple In a football way, he announced his approval of night games, declined to commit himself-as to tho assistants he will have and banned secret spring practice. "Temple Is the college of opportunity for me," he declared. "Conditions are favorable for developing the university into a prominent contender for national football prestige. We should be able to tackle the biggest teams In the east within a couple of years." Play Night Games His stand on night games eliminated a lot of speculation, for Temple has played most of its Barnes in 'recent years under the floodlights.." Ono of the principal objects of Warner's trip is to attend the annual dinner of the Philadelphia Sports Writers' Association tonight and some nterestlng remarks nnent tho comparative merits of eastern and western elevens are expected of him, as well as a discussion of football rule changes. Qlad of Change "Pop" said he was Just as glad to come from Stanford to Temple as ho was to go to Plttsburg from Carlisle. "Temple University Is at the same point, in an athletic way," he said, "as Plttsburg when I first took up coaching duties at that Institution. "Pitt grew rapidly and Temple will grow Just as fast." CHARLEY SANTEN TO SHOW HERE Again Okl Shlkina, the Japanese champion, has disappointed Buck Buchanan, and will not be able to wrestle here .tomorrow night. Buchanan, however, secured Charley Santen, 210-pounder who has lost only one fall in eight months of wrestling on the coast. Santen Is matched against Harold Kruskamp In the main event. Don Hill and Yaqul Joe, middle- \yelght champion, tangle In the semi-wlndup. Buchanan says this headliner will be better than the one originally scheduled. The match between Hill and Yaqul Joe should be one of the best In the west this month.

ARE PLANIpf STATE (United Press Leased Wire) CHEYENNE, Wyo., Jan. 31.— Nearly 30,000,000 fish have. been planted In tho lakes and streams of Wyoming In tho last two years. The fish were supplied from' the state's eight fish hatcheries. Carl Lund, chief assistant game anil fish commissioner, said in addition to the state's output, the United States hatchery at Saratoga had. supplied 3,ll!i,050 fish to aid j;i maintaining -the" fishing standards of Wyoming rivers and creeks. Tho production of thft fish cost $103,783 during 1B31-23. Tho cost in 1932 was 17000 le.s.s than It was the previous year. The expense In 1931 was $55,361 and last year it was $48,422. Salaries and fish egg purchases were the largest Item of expense. Lund said ull of the hatcheries need modernization. He recommended the hatcheries In Park and Fremont counties be moved to more desirable locations, where there is a larger supply of water. The department recently purchased a site for a new hatchery In Fremont county, near Dubols, but is unable to start work on the project until funds are provided. W ITH those big, bad Bruin cubs back in tho Westwood Hills, from which they should never be al- owed to roam, the Bakersfield High School and Junior College quintets could come out in the open again today, take a deep breath and get ready 'or a comparatively easy week-end.

Ono of tho Favorites Continue in Miami Tourney (United Press Leased Wire) MIAMI, Fla,, Jan. 31.— Favorites were still in the running today for the second round of the Mlaml-Bllt- more women's golf tourney, with one exception— Mrs, Tom AVallnce of Sapulpa, Okla., who was eliminated in an upset yesterday. Miss Agnes Wayne of Miamo furnished this surprise when she downed .Mrs. Wallace, former state champion, one up. Mrs. O. S.

Cannon of Boston, 9*aud 7. ; CORRECTIVE Influences always working against you In your efforts to acquire good golf Is the force of the corrective detail. Before we proceed let's examine .just what effect these correctives have. Swinging the golf club Is an art and tho purpose of this art Is to Rive the club expression. The swing therefore always should bo contemplated and studied us a whole, us one continuous flow of exertion—a single entity. But tho corrective influence, dealing with ono fault or another, which faults the player seems to* euro Immediately, Is so wide-spread that it becomes a definite part of nearly every golfer's equipment to know—or to think ho knows—the correction for nny golflnp trouble. Hence, golfing resolves itself mostly Into n Hticoosslon of these correctives, and for the most part they are "don'ts". In this light, the "inside out" theory moans little In Itself and can hardly be put to effective use. As if part of the principle of correct hip co-ordination It becomes valuable. .

This parallelism between the two Kern County Junior College cage outfits, tho West KIdo Cougars and the local Renegades, Is besldo tho point but nevertheless striking. To date they have kept pace almost Identically, losing to and winning from the same opponents. And since California Polytech rolled up a good edge over the Cougars, it's a pretty good sign that the coast cagers can do tho same over the Renegades. After a week in which they had to stand Idly by while their elders and supposedly betters performed, tho high school Class B and C teams are looking forward to a more entertaining week-end. Marlcopa's weight teams are expected to give tho .locals all tho competition they can handlo.

Prospects of an annual "triangular duel" among those elevens, for years the outstanding teams produced in this section of the state, were greeted with enthusiasm locally by the "old school" of football followers, who Bflll regret the loss of the state championship playoff and who fear further limitation of the title series.

COUGARS WIN TAFT, Jan. 31.— Les Klenholz' Junior college squad defeated tho Por- torvlllo Junior College Saturday night at Strath more, 40 to 22. Tnft would take on real significance if such a move were made. For as far back as C. I. F. records go, one of the three clans, tho Drillers, tho Warriors or the Wildcats has dominated tho grid show in this section of the country. In the season Just past, Fresno and Bnkersfield tied for the valley Championship. Could tho threo schools come to terms In a triumvirate, the valley would bo assured of rivalry that would be second to none In point of interest here. Only Probability To date there Is nothing definite In the agreement, only tho probability that J. C. Trombetta of Fresno, Ed Sewell of Taft and Ernest Dalbom, Baltorsrlold High School director of athletics, will "get together In the very near future" to talk It over. Regardless of whether the schools come together In any such definite combination, it Is generally conceded that the three elevens will meet In "practice" games next fall. Taft Willing In a recent communication to Director Dalbom, Coach Trombetta said, "I know that Taft wants to play us each year and I feel that possibly Bakersfleld does, too. As Taft feels that we owe them a game at Taft, I think they will wont to play ua down there next year. In that case we would like to have you come hero next fall and we will come to Bak- orsfleld tho following year. Proposed Date "I suggest that we meet somewhat early In tho season so that our games will In no way interfere with the Taft-Bnkersfleld game. Therefore I am proposing tho night of Friday, September 29, for a game between Bakersfleld and Fresno High at the Stnto College Stadium. "I think it would build up Into a great triunglrt if Bakersfleld, Taft and Fresno met every year. I am very much in favor of It and if you and I'Bft fared we could get together some day in the very near future and make out a long period agreement." CORBETT IN SNOW YOSEMITB, Jan. 31. (U.
