Hy ALAN GOULD MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 30. .T)--The National league, having broken a:l attendance records last season, expects an even bigger and better pennant race in 1931, according to President John Arnold Heydicr. Mr. pnd Mrs. Heydler have come to Miami to spend a vacation. "Not only will the new ball and its effect on the big hitters serve to increase interest this year generally," -said Heydler, "but so far aa tl-.c National league is concerned, wo look for a race in which at least six- clubs should play a decisive part. League Well Balanced. "It Is nothing 1 new l~or our league to be well balanced, with four and five clubs figuring in the pennant fight. It has almost become a habit. I expect teams like P h i l a d e l p h i a iind Boston to continue their sensational development, especially if the former team develops several winning pitchers. Pittsburgh had tough luck most of last season and is always dangerous. Cincinnati still is in the reconstruction age. "Of the first division group ot" j lant year, Brooklyn has tremendous I possibilities, in every respect, and i.- i a big drawing- card. The Cubs can be counted on for a great fight under Hornsby. St. Louis has shown what it can do by winning thren pennants in five years and the Giants are strengthened for what should be a sensational contest. "Baseball as a whole is coming thru tne period of business -slump very well. Like everything else, however, it has had to face the facts and take steps to keep the public confidence and support. Are Thru With Changes. "You know, everything has been going thru a stage of readjustment. People everywhere and business in general were hitting too fast a pace. Sport reflected the same tendencies. "Tne reaction now has set in. They changed the size of the ball in golf to make it more generally playable and remove the premium on long distance slugging. We havo changed the structure of the baseball for much the same reason and t h e game will benefit accordingly. "It is all a sign of returning normalcy and sanity in play as well as living."

HAMPTON TO Charles City Battler Hopes to Show His Speed in Next Ring Show. Don Hampton, local welterweight, was signed Wednesday to trade- blows with "Tuffy" Anderson, Charles City, in one of the six round bouts of a 40 round boxing card scheduled at the armory Thursday, Feb. 26. Anderson, the tough one, has shown before in the local ring and in the last show made a big hit with his clever and hard punching and convinced Matchmaker Joe Kelly oC the Legion drum corps that he is ready for the best in the six round- ers. The Charles City mauler eomo few months ago gave Irish Haggerty, local boxer, a real licking at Charles City in a six round bout. Don Hampton, his opponent in the six round bout, fought a furious eight round draw with Nach Man- riquiz, Mexican battler, at Atlantic, Iowa, recently. Hampton scored a _. knock down and had the Mexican on the verge of a knockout. Three other six round bouts and four other four rounders will be offered to Mason City and North Iowa boxing fans. Matchmaker Kelly is also arranging a battle royal, In which five or six Negro battlers will participate. Most marriages fail, however, because there isn't room for two cases of self-pity in the same house. -- Havouport TirncH.
