Kuhel Takes Over as New Hats Manager WASHINGTON. Oct. 10. (UP>— Joe Kuhcl, veteran former first baseman of the Washington Senators, was named new manager of the club yesterday. President Clark Griffith of the Senators said Kuhel hud .sijzned a ! one year contract. Terms of the contract were not disposed. Bui it wa.s believed to call for about $18.000 a year. Kuhel succeeds Ossie Blucge, who was named director of the Club's farm system Tuesday. Bluege, former Washington third baseman, had ! managed the team ."or five years. i Kuhel obtained his release yes- l terday as manager of the Hot 'Springs club of the Class C. Cot- 1 ton States League. I In naming Kuhel, Griffith again Lutes' puss to Hutcher.son wt:s ' stuck to his practice , of putting good for a firsi down on the Jones- i former Washington player in the boto 10 and Mel Hay picked up foiu' ! managerial spot, off tackle but the half ended with j K U hcl came to the Washington the ball resting on the six.

Kuhel plcvycri fo& the White Sox throuuh the ! 19fii ^season, then returned to the [ Washington club for the 19-14 and 3045 seasons, anri wa.s with the White Sox nealn during 1<J4G. At his prime, he wns rated otie of the finest fielding first suckers in (he American League. Griffith said that Coaches Sammy West atid Clyde Milan probably would remain with the club.

Even though Pruitt carried the bull on a beautiful run, it was a well-thrown block by-Lutes that set* him off. Only one man stood between Prnitt and the goal line after he had taken the ball on a double reverse and Lutes pulled out of the BlytiicvilK secondary anri nailed this man leaving Pruitt an open Iield. Drnke and Ucirt Star J. C. Droke anil Robert Reid were the standouts in the Paps defense, pulling in from their line-barking positions to break up the interfer- ' ence thus allowing one of their . teammates to stop the runner. And in the line, Bill "Buzzy" Wunderlich and Lcroy Criner, the le!t tackle and guard respectively, were stalwarts, breaking through the Jonesboro forward wall to spill runners. ! The Paps pass defense was as ^•11 of holes as a pair of last year's "x. The Whirlwinds completed lour tosses out of eipht attempts for a ' gain of 72 yards. The Paps com- ! pleted two passes in four tries for ' a gain of 29 yards. On the ground the Paps v,eve superior.
