ifritor. Feb. 4, 1844 9 iN CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Seals Prexy Asks Waiver Trade Price Be Abandoned It seems a shame that the Na- onal Collegiate Athletic associa- on meets have to be in 2 dijfer- nt places. The get-together, for' ,e western entrants is to be aged at Kansas City, and for the astern teams at New York's Edison Squara Garden. We say 's a shame, because it might put stop, temporarily at least, to log Allen's complaining. Could the meet be held, say at lolumbus, Ohio, which, is about \\-\e most centrally-located place e(\veen east and west, you'd ive your top clubs of · west, raid- est and east all thrown together, 'ith 3 or 6 teams from each area, ou'd get a pretty fair idea as to iclr respective abilities. The way the meet is arranged, ow, however, the winners in east id west meet in a single contest, ay fair-minded person will tell ni that one game is not an accu- ·te test oE a team's ability, hould it suffer an off-night, you 1'iuldn't therefore say that mid- est basketball is superior to"-the [stern style of play if the west . v - . . . Practical 'it probably wouldn't be praeti- ||;al to carry out our idea, however, Ills'- students would undoubtedly jniss more time away from classes, li.vhat with 10 or 15 teams waiting .heir turns to play. It's quicker the ,vay it is now, but it wouid be* lice to have something coming up ?ach seas'on just to get the mid- ivest and east together somewhere 2lse than on the eastern clubs' fzourts. j That would either prove Bhog IjiMlen right or wrong, once and I Tor all. At that, it might be worth I the sacrifice of a few classes. The I vociferous Jayhawk mentor, as Ijyou probably well know, doesn't Ikeem happy unless he has some- htag or other to kick about.

Graham, president of the San Francisco Seals, proposed Friday that the double "A" minor leagues "stop subsidizing the major leagues" by giving them Choice,"double "A." players for the $7',500 draft price. Graham, representing the .Pacific Coast league on the minors' post-war planning committee, suggested that the set draft price be eliminated and that a combination major-minor board of appraisal be set up to de"= termine the true value of drafted players. Making ihis proposal to the minors' planning committee, be- # spectacled, white-haired Graham emphasized the case of Ed Carnett, the Seattle outfielder who recently was drafted by the , Chicago White Sox. Graham said, "Carnett, formerly a southpaw pitcher, was converted into, an outfielder, and during the 1943 season he blossomed out as one ot the best outfielders in the coast league. Unfortunately Seattle was unable to make a reasonable deal for Carnett before the Sept. 10th deadline; so he became subject to the draft. The White Sox got him for the $7,500 draft price-a player that's worth about ?25,000." The 66 year old San Francisco prexy declared that almost every year some club in the double "A's"--the International league, American Association and Pacific Coast league--has to sacrifice an outstanding player for a song because of the set draft price. "This unfair practice has been Koine on a lone time," he continued. "Back in 1926,1 brought Lefty O'Doul to the San Francisco club from the Hollywood - club at a cost of $7.500. At that time the draft price was only 55,000. Well, the Giants drafted him from San Francisco for $5,000 In 1927, and I»!ost $2,500 on the. deal alone--not to mention what O'Doul actually was worth." Big Charley who has been president of the Seals for 26 years, assured reporters that he is optimistic over the .Pacific coast's baseball outlook for 1944. He pointed out that the coast circuit's receipts were larger last season than in '42, although attendance fell off a bit. Receipts increased he explained, "because about GO per cent of those fans who normally sit in the bleachers had money enough to move into the grand stands." "The public wants basbeall," he stressed. "The situation is much different from the first World War when the Pacific Coast league had to quit in July of 1918. The war news was bad then. Russia had quit, leaving a great burden on the allies, particularly the United States. But in the current war, the news generally has been good. Moreover, a quarter-century of education has made everyone more appreciative of baseball as a morale sustainer." The coast league's optimism was reflected in its recent appointment of Clarence "Pants" Rowland as president for 10 years at an annual salary o£ $12,500, Graham pointed out. Pro Golfers Start Play in Phoenix Meet Phoenix, Ariz., (yf)--Profession- al golfdom's draft-shorn touring brigade, headed westward for what Craig Wood, National Open champion, believes will -be its greatest year, started Friday over the Phoenix Country club course in quest of $5,000 in war bonds. The traveling ..pros, including Harold "Jug" McSpaden of Philadelphia, winner of 5 of the last 8 golf main events, and Byron Nelson, the Toledo, Ohio, perfectionist, were scheduled for their first 18-hole rounds Friday.

It kept him inactive until late in July, but he did wind up with a 1943 record of B wins and 7 defeats. The slim Tiger star, Bridges, entered the army in December with a major league record of 192 games won, and would have been a good bet. to reach 200 in 1944.

Ruffing entered the army with a record of 258 won and" 216 lost, while Lyons signed up with the marines with a lifetime mark of 259 won and 226 lost.

Y. By United Press Syd Howe of Detroit, a 10-year lockey veteran, made a place for limself Friday in the archives of sports by getting 6 goals in the Seel Wings' 12 to 2 victory over New York Thursday night, setting an all time individual scoring record, as his team took over 2nd place in the National league. Howe, a consistent goal maker throughout his career, put on his greatest performance and enabled team mate Don Grosso to tie another league record with 6 assists. Even the feeble defense of the last place Rangers could not overshadow the brilliance of Howe's play. He was in the offensive drive from the start, getting 2 goals in each period and firing a number of other potential tallies at Goalie Ken McCauley, who made 43 saves despite Detroit's 12 scores. The one-sided verdict was an encore to Detroit's record, breaking 15 to 0 triumph over the Hangers in their last trip to Michigan 2 weeks ago,~;which set -an all-time mark for margin of victory in the league. Hoive, who only last Saturday became the 12th man in the history of the league to make more than 200 goals is the all-time high scorer for the Red Wings. Other Detroit scores were made by Carl Liscombe who got 2, and Cully Simon, Mud Bruneteau Grosso, and Bill Hollett. The Rangers, held, scoreless until the final period, got their tallies on shots by Bucko McDonald and Gaston Gauthier. 999 HITS IN 7 YEARS Detroit, (IP) -- R u d y Y o r k , American League in homers last season with 34, needs one more safety to reach the 1,000-hit mark.
