NORTH CENTRAL AGAIN IN SECRET HUDDLE 'UNCLE' ROBINSON BUILDS HIS TEAM OF HARD HITTERS Brooklyn Squad Calculates to Strike Fear in Opposition. By ALAN GOULD ' Fla - - . , a P ort 'y. kindly-look- old gentleman with a twinkle In his eye, a chew of tobacco in his jaw, instilling ferocity into a band of baseball hijackers and you have an idea what your Uncle WUbert Robinson is doing with his Brooklyn boys. ' J Uncle Robbie has developed the killer-instinct. Lively ball or no lively ball, and Robbie says- YOU can't tell the difference, he has put together a beefy collection of sluggers calculated to strike fear into the opposition. Has Hitting Outfield. ' The outfield, composed of Lefty ODoul, Babe Herman and Johnny Frederick, averaged .370 at bat last year and should do as well or better tins year. The regular Infield, consisting of S?£ t V? lewi Wright at short, Wally Gilbert on third, Fresco Thompson at second and Del Biasonette on first, also averages over .300 at the . plate. Tampa AI Lopez, catching sensation of 1930, hit for .308 and should go many notches higher, his 210 pound understudy, Ernest Lombard! hit .307 with Oakland last season. With a sort of ferocious glee, undo Robbie watches these fellows go up to the plate and, as he says, "battle the boards." Clubs Develop Batting. His youngsters will find the competition keen enough, for every club in the National league has already shown or is fast developing batting strength. Brooklyn's drive for a pennant in this company seems well fortified in every other respect. Thompson plugs a long standing infield gap. The reserves are numerous and eager. The pitching' defense may the best in the league but it is close to it. The high priced Tazzy Vance, William Watson Clark, Adolfo Luque, Ray (Babe) x Phelps, who won 14 games in his first major league season; Hollls Thurston and Ray Moss compose the principal firing: 2ine. Old John Picus Quinn ' and his spitball promise to be helpful. /' v Get Newcomers. "· \ . -- *: x-ftn.^ {Salliyan , "Starr- youngste r ' from Macpn, is ; 'the best of the new comers.' .' The- Arkansas hog-caller, Clyde (Pea-ridge) Day, drafted from Kansas City, may find a relief job. The Robins are not polished- looking. Fleetness of foot and quickness of mind are not among their noteworthy points as a team. However, they have the essentials of punch, pitching and leadership to make them pennant factors every step of the way. STANDARD!.

BE-GAZETTE MASON CITY, IOWA, MARCH 17 1931 INDEPENDENTS WIN OPENING Y. W. CLASH SPORT SCRAPS -h + THESE THREE FRENCHMEN FORM THE TEAM THAT WILL MEET A PICKED AMERICAN SQUAD IN THE AMERICAN lN- DOOK TENNIS CHAMPIONSHDPS. THEY ARE PIERRE LANDRY, CHRISTIAN BOUSSUS, JEAN BOROTRA. G OLF is nothing, new. The Marquis de Argyll, an interesting Scottish lord, beheaded'in 1661 by the way, once wrote the following note to his son, the Earl of Argyll, als,o beheaded in 1685: "Tennis is not in use among us, but only in our capital city, but in lieu of that, you have that excellent recreation of Goff-ball, than which truly I do not know a better " - - * » ' * * * . * BUT THE HARDEST HAZARD FOR THE AVERAGE GOLFER MORE THAN ONE "GOFFER" HAS LOST HIS HEAD, HOWEVER, IF THE RECORDS ARE CORRECT. £-3 T\ APPER BILL TERRY U' holdout first baseman of the New York Giants, has come to terms atter a long battle over salary matters with the Gotham club. Terry signed for a lecret sum and is ready _ to don the uniform for another season. * » * « When motor boats first came into existence some time in tho slow but awakening 'OO's, they were called "naptha launches." In this day and age, it is even permissible to call a race horse n hay-burner. 1 * * * T AST YEAR a toss of 44 feet 11 J-" inches won f^rst place for Walter Guilfoyle in an indoor track meet of New York City high schools. An identical heave was good only for second place this year. ISN'T ON THE COURSE AT ALL.

There were 50 spectators. This year 50,000 persons watched several hundred competitors. FROM TRAINING CAMPS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MACK LOOKS FOR A LOT OF HARD SWINGING i'ORT MYERS, Fla.--The new ball with the elevated stitching won't change the style of attack very much,, in the opinion of Connie Mack, manager of the Athletics. There Is no sliding: pit at the champions' camp and Mack is not stressing- base-running because he thinks there will be no decided change in the attacking system this year. He looks for a lot of free swinging. * * * HOWLEY VISITS CARDINALS' CAMP BRADENTON, Fla.--Despite a denial from the "big boss," members of the St. Louis Cardinals, especially the outfielders, wondered Tuesday whether a deal between the Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds was in the making. Manager Dan Howley of the Reds visited carnp Monday, supposedly Jn search of an outfielder. * * * BUT HOWLEY DOSS NOT GET RESULTS TAMPA, Fla.--Dan Howley, the Reds' manager, is about convinced the big fellows in his league--the pennant contenders, have no desire to assist the lesser lights. Dapper Dan spent Monday visiting the headquarters of one of the strongest clubs in the national circuit seeking a player or two but was turned down flat. - * * * LURE OF BASEBALL WINS BACK MORGAN NEW ORLEANS--The lure of baseball has proved too strong for Eddie Morgan. The young slugging first baseman of the Cleveland Indians signed his contract Monday night and shelved his ambition to manufacture boxes for the summer at least. No figures were made public. * * * PAGE TYRUS COBB! HERE'S HIS PLAY SAN FRANCISCO--Page Tyrus Raymond Cobb! Harvey walked. Gerald singled. Harvey sprinted for third. Gerald made for second. Harvey stole home, and Gerald arrived safely at third on the play at the plate. There are old-timers in Detroit who remember when Cobb used to try that crazy stuff--and get away with it. * * * KAMM WINS TITLE OF "HUSTLING WILLIE" SAN ANTONIO--Willie Kamm. whose apparent lack of interest in the success of the Chicago White Sox last season did nothing to improve his standing with the club, has earned himself the title of "Hustling Willie" in the training camp. So far this year, has fielded with all his old skill, and has hit in ·style that has pleased Manager Donle Bush. * * * · HORNSBY DISREGARDS VICTORIES IN WEST LOS ANGELES--As far as Rogers Hornsby is concerned, a couple of lopsided victories over the Los Angeles Pacific coast league club is ,no cause for excitement among the Chicago Cubs. The new Cub pilot is not particularly pleased with the work of William Wrigley's team because he considers the caliber of opposition to have been extremely weak. * * * SELECT PITCHERS FOR SENATOR-ORIOLE CLASH BILOXI, Miss.--The pitchers already have been selected for the Washington Senator's game at Gulfport with the Baltimore Orioles --Carl Fischer, Lynn Griffith and Wally Tauscher. * . * * KUEL REALIZES POSITION OF UMP! PENSACOLA, Fla.--Muddy Ruel, Red Sox catcher, says that "ball players are a lot of snakes in the grass." Muddy's philosophy comes of acting as arbitrator on the base lines. He's been convalescing with a split finger and he's not at all fond of his umpiring job. He adds that how Tom Conolly can keep his sweet disposition is "one of the sweet mysteries of life" and Muddy "doesn't want to solve it."

In the Bankers' mile, Dale Letts, big ten indoor half-mile and^ mite champion, and Ray Conger, one of the country's premier distance stars, arc expected to compete.

Each has BIG TEN AWAITS INSIDE REPORTS BEFORE MEETING Course of Action to Depend on Whether Group Insists on Regulating Affairs. CHICAGO, March 17. (JFl--The North Central Association 'of Colleges and secondary schools went into another series of secret huddles Tuesday, while college sportsdom in general, and the western conference in particular, awaited reports from the inside. Members of the Big Ten were particularly interested in reports from north central committees, because it plans to fight, if necessary, any move on the part of the north central to attempt to involve itself in western conferenqe athletic prob- 6ms. At the request of President Walter Dill Scott of Northwestern university, presidents, faculty committeemen nnd athletic directors of Big Ten will meet early next month to plan n course of action, depending on whether the north central, originally a scholastic acredlting group, insists upon attempting to regulate athletic affairs. A year ago the north central, ordered its members to abandon all interscholastic tournaments and athletic meets. Later a group of Investigators .vas sent out into schools in Illinois, Minnesota and Ohio to probe athletic administrative affairs. When the investigators reached Northwestern, Dr. Scott protested and asked other Big Ten university heads to meet nnd decide if the north central should be permitted to continue. played two matches and won them both in straight sets. Their next testa, however, promise to demand a little more effort on the part of the invaders.
