CRUSHING HANDED COLUMBIA CAUSE OF HUGE CHANGE New Blood Came Into Field After Defeat by Tiger Grid Team, 20-0. By EDWAKD J. NEIL NEW YORK, Dec. 5. (ff)--It took a workmanlike pasting from the militant sophomores of Princeton to make a Rose Bowl company out of the Columbia Lions. "If they wouldn't go themselves, they did the next best thing," chuckles Head Coach Lou Little. "They made a football team that is going out o£ my fellows." And BO Princeton's handiwork, a Columbia team that came roaring out of defeat to reorganize in October and, sweep through the remainder of the season undefeated, will leave here Dec. 19 for the New Year's battle with Stanford in the Rose Bowl at Pasadena, thinking kind thoughts of Old Nassau for the first time this year. Story Within Story. There i s a story within a story in the 20 to 0 licking Columbia absorbed Oct. 21 from a Princeton team that finished its season unbeaten and untied and then forestalled any invitation to the Rose Bowl by announcing the Tiger policy against post-season games still was in effect. There were 10 seniors in Columbia's lineup that day. Most of them had played through two straight victories over the Tigers. "They. Just wouldn't believe," said Little, "that they had anything to fear from Princeton. Sophomores? Pooh! They ate sophomores." At that time--October--no one had guessed the true potentialities of Princeton's grand squad. So it fell to Columbia's lot to be the first to discover It when it was too late to io anything about it. On the opening kickoff, a Columbia sophomore back fumbled on his 30 yard line. Princeton scored a few minutes later and the Columbia, seniors never did get their balance "back. Everything worked for the Tigers, nothing for the Lions. No Alibi There. "That's no aJlbi," says Little. "Princeton might have beaten us 40-0. When we got home I sold nothing to the squad about the game Itself. I just told them we were starting the season all over again." Little felt some of his seniors had lost their edge. He has to work with one good first team. Reserves are few and inferior. But he started Injecting new blood. Bill Nevel, a 175 pound defensive back who hasn't carried the ball all season, went in at fullback. He blacks and nearly tears legs off with his tackles. Al Barabas, 190 pounds of 'sophomore and the fastest man on the squad, went to left half, the bucking post. Ed Bromln- ski, 172 pound right halfback, a shifty runner and pass receiver, stayed at right half with Cliff Montgomery, only 158 pounds but a brilliant fellow who does everything, sticking to his job at quarterback. The right side of the line was reorganized. Al clampa, 177 pound junior, took the center job and two sophomores, Larry Pinckney, a 180 pounder, at guard, and Paul Jackel, 185 pounds, at tackle, respectively. Owen McDowell, basketball captain weighing 177 pounds, became the regular right end. The team started going places. Cut Game's Length. They thrashed Pcnn State, 33-0 with the fourth quarter cut to six minutes to save further damage. They beat Cornell, 9 to 6 after being penalized 70 yards In the first period alone. They beat Navy 14 to 7 and "Ip" Miller said of the Lions then, "they're better than Pittsburgh. I know. They both beat us." Little topk his first string backs out 28 seconds before the end of the first half and Fred Berries' promptly ran 76 yards for Navy's only score. Navy made three first downs all afternoon. Hitting with terrific power, the Lions swamped LaFayette, the team that tied Colgate, 46-6. In the final game they beat Syracuse 160. At th end of the season it was travelling at top speed, a polished, stylish, hard-tackling, beautifully clicking team. It's a picturesque outfit in light blue and white.

' W)--If there's any doubt about the wisdom of the Chicago Cuba in adding Charles H. (Chuck) Klein to their lineup for 1934, a glance at the official National league averages for last season should remove it. Klein not only won the batting championship with an average of .368, but topped all rivals in four other departments of play as he carried hia sensational slugging achievements through the fifth successive year. During that period, he never has made fewer than 200 hits, scored less than 100 runs or hit less than .337. The great outfielder, traded to the Cubs by the Phillies in the most important of the off-season deals, led his closest rival and teammate, Virgil Davis, by 19 points in the batting race. Davis, who hna been traded to the St. Louis Cardinals, wound up with a mark of .319. Other Diamond Titles. Klein's other "titles" came in base hita where he had 223 against 200 for Chick Fullls of the Phillies; in total bases, with 365 against 299 for Wally Berger of the Boston Braves; in doubles with 44, against 40 for Joe Medwick of the Cardinals; and In homeruns with 28, Berger finishing second with 27. Back of Klein and Davis in the batting parade trailed Rlggs Ste phenson of the Cubs In third place with a .329 average; Tony Piet of Pittsburgh, traded recently to the Cincinnati Reds, with .323; BUI Terry, manager of the world chnm- plon New York Giants .322; Wes Schulmerich of the Phillies, .318; John L. (Pepper) Martin of the Cardinals, .316; and Floyd Vaughan, Pirates, .314. Martin picked up two of the individual championships, with 122 runs and 26 stolen bases, while Fullis was at bat the most times, 647, and collected the most singles, 162. Vaughan hit the most triples, 10, while Dick Bnrte!! of the Phillies had the most sacrifices, 37, for the second successive year. Second in Runs. Klein and Pan! Waner of the Pirates were second to Martin in rurs with 101 and Waner finished runnerup to Vaughan for triples with 16. Frankie Frisch, manager of the Cardinals, waa Martin's closest rival as a base stealer, pilfering 18. Klein's durability also was proved by the fact that he was one of five players who took part In every one of their club's games. The others were Bartell of the Phillies and Paul Waner, Harold (Pie) Traynor and md pasa as well as run, and has been the spai'kplug of two very successful Peacock elevens in the last two years. Thompson at Quarter. Rabbit Thompson, the elusive quarterback for the Simpson eleven, got the quarterback post by a wide margin. Hanson, who calls signals for St. Ambrose, was placed at a halfback position by most of the critics, who claimed that Thompson's field generalship was much superior, but that Hanson's all around ability earned him a place in the backfield. Thompson, who with Capt. Adolph Carlson, fullback, was the principal ground gainer for Simpson and his fine handling of the team had much to do with its success. His speed made him dangerous in the open field and in running back punts. Hangcn la a fine kicker besides his abilities as a ball carrier, passer and defensive man. Last year, in his first year in the circuit he was awarded a first team berth. Injuries handicapped him most of this season. Hostetler is a three year selection in the all-conference backfield, a ttrrific line hitter and a deadly, low tackling defensive man. He worked behind one of the weakest lines in the conference this year, but he still managed to g a i n considerable ground through the sheer power of his drive. One veteran conference Ineman remarked of him that "hav- ng felt the shocks of most of these jacks, I can judge somewhat as to :heir ability, and Hosteller, though handicapped by a very weak line, s still the hardest hitter. In the oop." RUDD, Dec. S.--At the end of the third week of play in the Four Square basketball conference, 12 of the 18 teams have met conference competition. Elma and Nora Springs lead the heap with two wins each with Carpenter and Lime Springs trailing with a win apiece against no defeats. Orchard and Alta Vistn., who wound up the season lost year without a conference win, are starting early to redeem themselves. Orchard has won two of its four tilts while Alta Vista knocked off Colwell, runnerup of last year in the conference, to break even in its two games of the season. The four leaders m tne conference to date all have veteran teams and should rank high in the standings at the end of the season. Several others pf unknown strength are yet to be heard from, and Mitchell, last year's class B champion of Mitchell county with a veteran team, may yet make a definite bid for the title as the two defeats have been by narrow margins to Nora Springs and Elma on foreign courts. Six Gomes Carded. Six conference games are scheduled for this week. Marble Rock and Kockford break Into conference play by entertaining Colwell and Floyd respectively. Friday's games are as follows: Carpenter at Colwell, Elma at Mitchell, Orchard at Mclntire, Plymouth at Nora Springs. In last week's games, Orchard pulled from behind In the fourth quarter to defeat Floyd in a close battle £t Floyd by 18 to 13, the hap- lesa Chester crew took it on the chin from Mclntire 9 to 41 at Mc- lntire on Tuesday evening ana at Elma Friday to the tune of 14 to 62. The team is handicapped ' for lack of reserves and by injuries this year. Alta Vista won from Colwell 36 to 21 and Mitchell won at Otranto 35 to 22. High Scoring Feats. Several high scoring feats have occurred thus far. Tate of Elma has scored 21 to 20 points respectively in two games, Scheckler of Nora Springs score'd 8 field goals and four free throws at Colwell for 20 points, Tyler of Alta Vista scored 9 field goals against Colwell for 18 points, and L. Elffler scored 18 points against Chester Friday evening. Several others have scored better than 10 points in one game. Below are the Individual scoring records of the 20 high scorers from a group, of 91 who have participated In conference games to date: (Includes Game* of Dec. 1) Santa Clara Breaks With St. Mary's on Athletic Schedules SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 5. UP)_ Their athletic relations broken off for the second time In 37 years, St. Mary's college and the University of Santa Clara today faced the problem of filling gaps In their 1934 football schedules. The annual gridiron contest between the two Catholic schools drew the largest crowd here this year, 57,000 fans, and led to the aftermath of verbal exchanges that ended with the break. The teams fought to a 6-6 tie. At Santa Clara, where the Rev. James J. Lyons, university president, announced. the severance of athletic relations yesterday, it was reported an eastern opponent may be considered to fill the 1934 schedule. A game with Boston college at the Harvard stadium has been suggested.

CHICAGO, Dec. 5. #--Whether the New York Giants and the Chicago Beara meet in the national professional football league playoff in New York or Chicago Dec. 17, depends on the outcome of the Bears' battle with the Green Bay Packers next Sunday. President Joseph F. Carr of the pro league, has notified George Hal- aa, president and coach of the Bears, that the team finishing wS.1i the best percentage will be given the choice of playing sites. The Giants have won 10 games and lost 3, wlillo the Bears have won 9, lost 2 and tied 1. A victory or a tie with the Packers would give the Bears the edge, a Green Bay victory, however, would give the Giants the better standing, and choice o£ fields. They will be out to thump the Packers, in order to meet the Giants at Wrlgley Field. The Giants have not lost a game at home, while the Bears have not lost a game on their home field.

W--Mercef Arnold, chairman of the executive board of the University of Missouri Curators, says Frank Carideo, for. mer Notre Dame star, will remain as football coach at the University of Missouri next season, although his team won only one game and lost eight this season.
