KANSAS PAIN INHIS BACK BIGGEST WORRY GRIMM HAS NOW Lumbago Bothers Manage er but Not Players On Cub Team San Francisco, March 23. (AP)— Charley Qrlmm Is starting his first season as manager of the Chicago Cubs with a smllcv on his Hps and an ache in his back. He has been battling the lumbago for several •weeks. "The only grim part of the business , is my being laid up when my fcft are itching to get out on the field." said the Ukeable skipper of the defending National league champions. "Say, that's not a bad line, is it? "•Grim 'details worry Grimm."" "Tliere Is nothing to worrT,- over so for as the club is concerned. With Babe Herman in right fteld we have .^cidpdl battin? punch that should .mean a lot more runs this. year. O .i.'- only weakness, as I see it. Is ,a lack of experienced left handed piu'hing. Stiii, we've had the same V rakncss for four or five years and m-^nnged to win pennants. ' We have a great young club. I .never played with s finer bunch of (O IV AV .-.. If we don't win it wont be because of poor team work." C-vimrn, who took over the nuan- .•^r.trial reins the last seven weeks of last season, starts tills season v.Kh a strong club, largely because or the acquisition of Floyd "Babe" Herman, for years BrookljTi's clouting mainstay.

The Cubs are "set" in eight pitching positions with Burleigh drimes, Guy Lcroy Herrmann, Pat' Malone. , Lon Wameke, Charley Root. Lyle Tinning and Carroll Yrrkcs. the latter a left hander. Tv.o other "southpaws. Beryl Blch- monct and Roy Henshaw, and the , right banders, L>'nn Nelson and Lv'e ' Newsome, are fighting for the ninth place. With left handed help desired, FSchmonri. for whom a fair sized piece Of change was given to Balti- nibre, and Henshaw. University of Chlcapo recruit, have the' inside track. Henshaw has been the most irr .prcMive to date but Riclimond has been troubled with a sore arm. The three musketeers behind the plate are "Gabby" Hartnett. Zack Taylor, and Bill Campbell. Orimm says that catching staff will do until a bettei' one dashes up. Tlie Infield is unchanged with Grimm at first, Billy Herman at- .sr-cond. Bill Jurges at short and Elwood English at third. Mark Koe- nlg. who served lone and honorably v,1th the Yartkees: Stanley Hack and Han-ey Hendrick, will do the general utility chores, Hendrick also being equally at home In the outfield.

This girls' basketball going on in Wichita Is anything but sissy. It's R rough and tumble mill, full of dean action and without the slightest sign ot the stall that minimizes entertatlnment value of men's basketball. Up to the quarter-finals only one etin was caught weeping in public at the forum. The only casualties more serious than bruises were a broken tooth and a dazed head resulting from a collision of two teammates. Proving they can take It, they stayed In after the one spat out the tooth and the other's head cleared. Scratches administered inadvertently are in evidence but hair-pulling apparently went out with the bloomer girl era. Herman Smith of the Smith and Smith officiating duo was nearly knocked off his.feet by a pass from All>erta Williams, the elongate^ Dallas Cyclone 1 center. She apologized for tlu-owing the ball at him at competitive velocity when, he called for it. Herman Smith ts |a large fellow. There Is an intangible something that binds the solid South together. The Shamrocks from Jacksonville, Fla., lost by a decisive margin to Shreveport, La. Members each team applauded when the other team .pulled anything spectacular, and there was a good bit of inter- team back-slapping. Before the first tip Jacksonville exchanged Florida oranges for Shreveport "Hello Worid" bells. The Shamrocks had intended to bring 2S baby alligators along but decided upon oranges, instead. Girls from the South are tavor^ Ites with the spectators. The fans mimic their calls of "H'ya, honey." when they think the ball should be passed to them. Sybil Stumph, the tall, brown- halrcd beauty queen from Jacksonville, doesn't aspire to be a Babe Didrlkson. Pern Dry, runnerup for the beauty honor, is a quarter-blood Cherokee from, the Chllocco Indian school. First and second choice of the audience are both tall and brunette. They tower six Inches above the attractive third place winner. Clara Fletcher, tiny member of the Canadian, Texas, Crazy Cats. Stalling is taboo imder the women's rules because of the single dribble and the law decreeing the ball must be passed within three seconds after receipt. A peculiarity of the rules is that the centers turn their backs to their own objective goals at the tip-off. HiTcnnrKER JUMPS TO DEATH Fanner Killed by Train While Host Car Goes on Safely.

SECOND CRASH VICTLM DIES Carl Bardick Snccnmbs after Accident North of Fort Scott. Fort Scott, Kas., Mar. 23. (AP)— Cart Burdlck, 17, of PltLsburg, died tills morning from injuries received in the wreck of a truck against a culvert near Plensanton yesterday in which a compohlon, Reno Noor. was killed instantly. Noor operated a fruit store at Pittsburg and was taking a load of fruit home from Kansas City. 01 fleers who Investigated the accident expressed belief It was caused by a tire blow out.

STEEPLECHASE FRIDAY American Omed Horso Have ter Chance Than Before to Win EngUah CUssic ERAL OF VU012LP AReeEnTMfa UP ^ ANPI hSUMBER OF TftiN&S (bULX>,AFFBfrCbE ANDHlSBO/S'CftAWCES... Offhand it might seem that the team that beat the Cubs four straight last fall does not need much revamping for the 1933 season. But Joe McCarthy, manager of the Yankees, doesn't think so. Father Time has given Joe lots of worries. Babe Ruth Is getting old (he's 39 now) and may not play regularly this year. Tony Lazzeri, whose health has been bad, frequently is out of the gam<!. Joe Sewell is getting a little too ancient for third base. Earlc Combs, centerflelder, no longer Ls a, chicken. .McCarthy's problem for 1933 Is the selection of capable reserves. Alntree. Englwid, Mar. 23. (AP)— The ninety-fourth national steeplechase nm here tomorrow over 4 'v miles of green English turf, studded hedges, dangerous ditches and water Jumps, hy a field of thirty-odd high jumping horses promises spectacular sport and perhaps an Amerl • cjin victory. With nine American owned chasers among the starters, one of them American bred Trouble Maker, the odds by sheer numbers are better for an American triumph than in n-cent years. V' Trouble Maker's challenge isn't taken seriously In England. A win by Mrs, T. H. SomerviUe's Big Hunter would be as sensational as the last, and only American home-brerf national victory, by Rublo, in 1908. A part of Bublo's training w^s pulling the old hotel omnibus at Tow- caster. Although foaled In California, Rubio was ow-ned by an Englishman. J. H. Whitney's Dusty Foot and Mrs. C. S. Bird's Heartbreak HUl, nimble Irish mare, probably are the best of the American owned Jumpers. The other American owners and horses are: M. D. Blair's Ballyan- woou; F. Ambrose Clarks Chadd '."5 Ford and Mrs. F. Ambrose Clark's Kellsboro Jack; J. A. Drakes big French ;leaper, Coup De Chapeau, a fine chaser with a good record; J. B. Bnorx's Delaneige, and Jess Met- cairs Theras. , Golden Miller, owned by Miss Dorothy Paget, making- its grand, national debut after sweeping the steeplechase field victoriously, and Gregalach, have been the favorites at odds of 9-1. If the weather is fine, 150,000 or more wlU. see the grand national and most ot them will pay at least a fow shillings for the sight. After nearly 100 years all the knotholes around the course have been chinked, and 1933 will see the first "all pay" national. NKW WAB LORD SHOWS SPUNK Chinese Will Fight to the Last Ditch, He Saya. ROSS IS A FIGHTER Decision Over Petrolle Shows Him a SUUfnl Boxer Training Camp Notes Bradenton,' Fla.. Mar. 23. (AP)— Jerome "Dizzy" Dean, loquacious pitcher of the St. Louis Cardinals, boasted earlier this year that he'd play a Paul Bunyan role on the mound during 1933, and if exhibition games are any criterion it looks as though he may make good on a fair part of his boast. The world-champion Yankees were able yesterday to nick him ior only two hits during the four innings he pitched, and one of them was a scratch infield single. He struck out five men. Last Saturday he set the Boston Braves down in one-two- three order in the five innings he was on the moundi West Palm Beach, Fla.—Holdout troubles of the St. Louis Browns now are over for the 1933 sea-son. Rick Ferrell, the club's aCe catcher, and last Brownie holdout, signed his contract last night. Terms of the contract were not revealed, but his salary figures are believed to be around $7000. Ferrell led the Browns at bat last year, with a mark of .335. New Orleans—Wesley Ferrell, the Indian's ace pitcher, is certain his absence from the Cleveland training camp the first four weeks will handicap hta In no way. When he arrived yesterday to complete the club roster, he expressed the belief he had done as much work at home with his brother. Rick Ferrell, catcher for the 8t. Louis Browns, as he would have done had he been in camp. His physical appearance supported the opinion. OOKS and SLIDES By BILL BRRUCHER Buckley Barred St. Petersburg, Fla.—Manager Bill McKechnle, who has been moaning about his pitching situation since the Boston Braves came south, today appeared to have Joe McCarthy convinced the New Yozic Yankees should let him have one of his southpaws, Ed "Satchelfoot" Wells, in a straight cash transaction. The Braves and Yankees will put on their sixth exhibition clash here today with Babe Ruth remaining in the stands. Sareaota. Fla.—Johnny Hodapp, who appears to have the call for the Boston Red Sox's second base Job, will return to action today when Manager Marty McManus leads the team over to Bradenton for its return engagement with the St. Louis Cardinals. Hodapp's Injured foot has responded to treatment. ^ Fort Myers, Fla.—With four consecutive victories I)ehind them, the Philadelphia Athletics today tried for their second straight win over the Cincinnati Reds. Connie Mack started what probably will be his 1933 first team in yesterday's affray; Second Baseman Max Bishop again was in the leadoff batting position, and Mickey Cochrane, the dynamic catcher, was at his backstop post. : Lou Finney, in the outfield, and Prank Hlggins at third, the only newcomers, take the places of Al Simmons and Jimmy IJykes.

(AP)—Barney Ross, a youngster from Chicago's ghetto, has earned himself a chance at Tony Canzonerl's world lightweight championship. By outpointing Billy Petrolle, the Fargo, N. D., fighter last night in the Chicago stadium. Ross certified himself as about the best of the field seeking "to dethrone the champion. Ross didn't beat old Billy by a mile, but he did a good enough job to convince the tltleholder Canzon- ert who sat at the ringside and watched it. "He's a good boy." the champion said. "He fooled me.' He won all by himself. He outboxcd Billy and hurt him several times. I'll be glad to meet him." The battle was a sizzler every step of the way. Pctrolle's ceaseless marches and Ross's frequent stirring rallies had tlie crowd of about 15,000 on its feet cheering from start to finish. The decision was unanimous. Referee Phil Collins voted 52 to 48 for Ross, and the Judges. 'WlUlam Battye and Edward Klein, decided for the Chicago youth by votes of 56 to 44. and 55 to 45. respectively. Ross wasted no time In getting to. work on the battle scarred face of' the warrior. His busy left hand pumped into Billys face for points and sharp right crosses added more to Ro.«'s score. After the first three rounds, in which Ross plied up a big lead, Petrolle shifted his attack to j the body. He was more successful, but not enough to offset Ross's markedly superior boxing ability.

AMBULANCE SERVICE LADV IE MBALMEB A. R. SLEEPER Funeral Director JAMES KINSEB, Assistant lola, Kansas, March 23,1933. DEAR FRIENDS: It you are like many other friends who are interested in knowing more about funeral services, one of the first questions that comes to your mind is, what do funerals cost? The anvswer depends altogethei* on the desires of the family. We have complete funerals priced as moderately as may be obtained anywhere, with gradually increasing rates as the quality of the casket increases. Our complete sei-vice in all prices includes the casket, professional services,- use of the casket coach, and funeral cars, also use of the Service Rooms if the family wish to hold the funeral services here. All our prices are clearly marked in our display room and there is i^o variation, regardless of the person interested, or his financial standing. In addition to the funeral charge there is the cemetery charge for the burial plot and opening of the grave. Any further charges depend upon the'etra services that may be desired. After all, the best way to judge values in funeral charges is to examine the casket (and vault, if one is desired) and talk over the various forms of services and their costs. You are cordially invited to visit our display rooms anytime you wish, and see the vaiious styles and finish of caskets and vaults that we' carry. One should judge values in funeral supplies just as any other merchandise. Yours most cordially,
