(AsBocIated Press Sports Wriler.) Tired of standing pai and waiting for something to happen, the St. Louis Browns will toss a radically shifted lineup into the American . league pennant race this spring, 'hopeful of shaking off; the handicaps that have anchored the club in almost exactly the same spot for three years in a row.: j They traded lustUy during the winter with the Washington Senators and virtually picked the regular lineup before going linto training camp at West Palm Beach. It is an odd fact that j the Browns have varied only a single game in the standing of the clubs since 1929. Thev won 64 and lost'90 in 1930, finishing sixth. In each of the next two seasons they won 63/and lost 91, taking fifth place in lOSfand dropping to sixth last year. The necessity of finding some escape from these doldrums was emphasized by Manager .Bill Killefer when he pulled the strings that, sent Lefty Stewart. Gobse Gosl!n,j and Fred Schulte to the Senators in exchange for Lloyd Bfown, Carl Reynolds and Sam West. A Stronfrer Team. "The new men not only add new spirit to the team but will strengthen It as compared to the Browns of 1932,' Killefer told the Associated "I do not know where the Browns will finish in the race but I state here emphatically that the team will show more good all- around baseball than la^ season. "Defensively the Browns should be one of the best teariis in baseball. We have added in Sam West the cream of defensive i outfielders. He proved that last year by handling more chances than any other outfielder in the league.; "West will play center field and Reynolds left. Bruce Campbell will give \is a neal punch in! right field. Rick Perrell. when he signs up, will do the bulk of our catching. He had a great season in 1932 and should rank jwith any receiver in the league. I don't think our infield could be faster or better on defense. The young.ster. Art Scharein, who came up from the Texas league late last season, gave one of the greatest ejfhibitions at third base that St. Louis fans have ever seen. He rounds out the combination, with the holdovers. Bums at first, Melillo at second, and Levey atl short." Within Limit Now. The Browns will have| no trouble cutting down to the player limit of 23 by May 15. In fact, they are within that limit now. Tliey have only one reserve Inflelder. Lin Stortl. and two outfield j substitutes, Ted GulUc, who hit .354 In the Anlerican association last year, and Debs Garms, former Texas league slugser. Killefer may miss his ace .southpaw, Stewart, but he is relying on Irving (Bump) Hadley, George BlaehGlder. Lloyd (Lefty) Brown, Dick Coffman and Jack Knott for first-string duty. Hadley came from the White Sox early lasti year. Brown won as many games as Stewart last season, 15, and lost seven fewer decisions than the portslder he replaces. Coffman came back from Wa.shinfrton, in exchange for Charley ; Pispher. Knott, a right hander, won 17 and lost 12 with ; Milwaukee in 1932. The veteran Sam Gray will head the rescue staff, aided by Wally Hebert, young southpaw, and perhaps Russell White, Nrwark, N. J., lefthander, sisncd this week. LEAGUE OFTICIALS TO MEET Second Tn'ilisht Gathering to See Final Pre-Season Work. Pinal plans and discussion of the coming TVillght league season will occupy the time of officials and managers of the league In the second mcetii^ of the spring called for city ball tomorrow evening. Secretary Slim Neete, said today that the meeting would start at 7 o'clock and emphasized that only the manager's and owners of team.*, the league officers, and umpires would be admitted to the conclave LIGHTNER FUND MUST PAY ALL TRAVEL COSTS (Cqntimicil From Page One) Le Havre or Cherbourg to New York. Thereafter, of course, transportation would have to be procured to lola. It Is remarked that Mrs. Llghtner has been in correspondence with this office. Mrs. Llghtner reports the facts as Mr. Scott stated them. She j came to La Rochelle, France, appar- i ently at the solicitation of her sister iln December, 1932. The latter, however, urged Mrs. Llghtner to leave when she ascertained that Mrs. Lightner had no means of support for herself and children. Mrs. Llght­ ner thereupon went •with her three children to her brother at Ors, He d'Oleroh. Charente Inferieure. Mrs. i Lightn(|r in her letter explained that' she could not expect her brother to bear tlie burden of supporting her and her,three children and since she had no mdney to return to the United j States other than property at lola valued at about $350.00 she wondered whether it woiild be pos- 1 sible to repatriate her ht Govern- ' I ment expense or, falling in that, to ; procure employment as a steward- j CSS on an American ship. It has been Impossible to procure such employment for Mrs. Llghtner and at the same time obtain passage for her three children. Mrs. Lightner was advised, therefore; to commimi- cate with the American Aid Society already mentioned i and with the American Legion. No. 1. Persh- |ing Hall. 49 Rue Pierre Charron, I Paris, with a view jto having these I organizations assist her. Since Mrs. 'Lightner came to France on a temporary visitor's visa she cannot accept gainful employment here although: Mrs. Lightner in hex letters has not requested assistance in procuring. |such employment. The Department may rest assured that this office will maintain its interest in Mrs. Lightner's case and will continue its efforts in her behalf. It should be staled, however, that while the Consulate is able to procure from time to time free'pas- I snges for veterans of the World War, it is always extremely difficult to send wives and children since they obviously cannot accept the achom- modntlons which men find satisfactory and especially since cargo ships cannot transport women passengers.

(AP)— Opal Hayes, 4-year-old daughter nf William Hayes of Prescott, died in a hospital here (this morning from bums suffered yesterday when her clothing caught fire from a bonfire.

(AP)— A plaster of paris statue of a lion, gift of the local Lions' club, and which had been stationfed on a vacant lot near the Methodist church, was completely shattered and destroyed by vandals this week. From the forei;olng it will be seen that the only way in which Mrs. Liqhtner and her children can be' returned to their home in lola is ! through the contributions of their friends. Such contributions will be received at either of the banks or at the Register office. Bank Robber Pleads Guilty. Pai-sons, Kas.. Mar. 16. <AP)— Honnan cianton. 34. Vinlta. Okla., pleaded {rullly to bank robbery here today and was sentenced to serve ten to fifty years in the state pcni- tcntlarj- by District Judge L. E. Goodrich. Cianton and two companions held up the Chclopa JState bank Febru- ar>' 27 and robbed it of $1500. Cian­ ton was arrested last Sunday ut the home of his father. Grant Cianton at Vinlta. The prisoner said today hn was a former tool dresser in the Oklahoma oil fields and turned to bank robbery because he was dcstliuie. Duty for Unarmed Nations. Geneva. Switzerland, Mar. 16. (AP).—Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald of Great Britain, who came here in an effort to save the world disarmament conferience from f deadlock, told delegates to that meeting today that if there is to be international peace, the armed nations must contribute to disarmament and the unarmed to confidence, security and good will. KANSAN BEATS VENZKEWITHA THRILUNG RACE * \—. I Cunningham Undisputed as King of Milers After Besting Old Rival New York, Mar. 16. (AP)—Glenn Cunningham, the stocky University of Kansas Junior, left no room for argument today over his right to the title of king pf the American mile nmners. For his farewell race or a spectacular indoor campaign. Cunningham last night thrilled a crowd of 15.000 si)ectators at the Knights of Columbus meet ih Madison Square Garden with the fastest mile bf thi^ winter as he turned the tables con- •incingly on his only conqueror and his foremost rival. Gene Venz.Ke,;oi Pennsylvania. With memories of their exciting finish a' fortnight ago, in which Venzke .scored a narrow victory, in mind, Cuimingham dogged his rival's footsteps for ten of the eleven laps and then ran him Into the boards. For three-quarters of the journey, the two raced at a world record clip but Cunningham breezed through Uac tape in 4 minutes, 12 seconds. Just two seconds short of Venzke's own world Indoor mark. Venzke Goes Down. Venzke faded to such an extent on the bell lap that he was passed by his Pennsylvania team-mate. Cnrl Coan. as well as Glen Dawson of, and finished fourth. Frank cisrlwy of Manhattan was fifth andjlast. The Cunningham-Venzke duel for the winter thus was concluded with the score 3 to 1 in the banel-chest- cd Kan.san's favor. Cunningham's victory saved the- mid-western contingent from something of a rout in a meet which also featured a world Indoot record pole vault of 14 feetri-U Inches by Keith Brown of Yale. Ralph Metcalfe of Marquette, national sprint champion, had the tables turned on him by his southern rival, Emmett Toppluo of New Orleans, who flashed home first in tii-i CC-yard dash in 6.3 seconds. Jim Bausch Out. ' Another favorite from the mid • v/est fell when Jim Bausch of tha Ki'.nsas City A. C, OljTnpic decath Ion cham-pion, pelded to an old kucc injury and the superlative ix-rformanccs of Barney Berlinger. of Philadelphia, in the septathlon, all-around fc.iture. Bausch aggravated his in.Uiry by falliiig over a hurdle and withdrew after completing fi'-c of the SL'ven events. Be.rllnjfcr. already assured of victory" by taking four events finished solo to hang up a new mark of 6174.78 ix)ints for this special event. His best performances were 13 feet, 4 UicJies In the pole vault and 22 feet 11 inches in the broad Jump. To decide the winner of a "special K. of C. prize, for the meets best indi'.'ldual performance, a committee of spoils writers designated Cunningham for the honor. CHEERFUL CHARLIE ONE OF ...MVWORRJES.I*' Even the team that won the National League pennant last season isn't good enough for Charlie Grimm, manager of the Chicago Cubs—for didn't the club lose to the 'Yankees In the world series? At the end of the 1932 season Grimm needed more power in the outfield and a good southpaw pitcher. The former requisite he has acquired beyond all doubt in Babe Herman. Babe, with C.uyler and Stephenson, will make the Cubs' out:ield one of the strongest. Grimm's southpaw hurler is still a problem but may bo solved by young Roy Henshaw, sensational rookie from the University oi Kansas. MBS.

(AP) The difference between Babe RuU)'s salary demands and the New York Yankees' offer has been reduced to a mere $5,000 but (otherwise the Babe and^ Colonel Jacob Ruppert, club owner, are just as far apart as ever.
