It wa;- established, however, that Buck will draw a fancier salary than that to be paid Feller, whom the Indians signed yesterday for a reported $30,000. HU Very Best Season. Winner of 13 straight games and a world series star, Newsom in 1940 enjoyed hi.^ finest season in a long career in the big leagues. He won 21 and lost five during th regular season and, in pitching 264 innings, was surpassed only by Feller, John Rigney of the White Sox and Dutch Leonard of Washington. Owner Walter O. Briggs of the Tigers, reputed to be baseball’s highest paying club owner, has let it be known that he pays off “on performance.” Some irony therefore creeps into the Tiger situation. Draft Claims Greenberg. With Newsom given a boost, Hank Greenberg likely to retain his reported $36,000 and rewards to others due for the 1940 championship, the Tiger salary index apparently is on the up-trcnd. Greenberg, however, may be in the army. Draft board officers said yesterday he would receive his questionnaire next week. Pay goes up, but the Tigers, say the experts, are going down. Last year the team was known as an “old man’s club,” and the winter season’s forecasters don’t give them much chance for repeating as tltleists. For the Tigers are getting further along in years. Barred from trading with other American league clubs, the champions at this date plan to go along in 1941 with virtually the personnel of 1940. Rookies will be at hand, but in no great number.

The Cubs have paid Root about $228,000 in salaries so fri. $22,500 being his top figure about 10 years ago. He was paid in the neighborhood of $10,000 last season. Several other Cubs, including Hank Leiber, outfielder, and Clyde T'cCullough, rookie catcher, have balked at signing their contracts, but none can even come close to matching Root’s popularity with the North Side fans. ran the count to 30-16 going into the last eight minutes.

NEW YORK, Ian. 22—(INS)— | Our current remnants of the' great and noble Nevj York Giants of other days face the, approaching baseball season with tribulations piling higher ^ day by day. Announcement ’ that Morris Arnovich probably will be swept away by the draft early In the season is merely another incident, and perhaps not an important one, inasmuch as he was a .250 hitter with Philadelphi i and Cincinnati last season. Outfielders are supposed to do a a little better. Building Down, Not Up. However, the fact remains that the Giants’ seeming un-building program, which has bt'en going on for the last couple seasons, is being given a little extra by i n c i d ents over w'hich the club has no control.

Jan. 22—The Doane college Tigers are scheduled to meet the Hebron Juniors at Butler gym Friday evening, Jan. 24.

This year, tw'o former Hebronites are on the Tiger squad —Phil Gregory, guard from Hubbell, and Don Bailey, forward from Carleton, Coach Haylett’s Doane squad will not resume practice until Thursday night, when the majority of examinations will be over, and his starting combination will remain a question until just before game-time.

Recreation Leaguers. KANSAS SCHEDULES GAME WITH TEMPLE PHILADELPHIA, ' Jan. 22 — (AP)—Two new teams make their appearance on the Temple university football schedule next fall, Earl R. Yeomans, director of athletics, announced today. The Owls will open against the University of Kansas here Sept. 26 and meet V. M. I.’s cadets the following week in Temple stadium. Both games will be played at night. The remainder of the nine- game schedule lists contests with (Georgetown, Penn State, Bucknell, Boston College,, Villanova, Michigan State and Holy Cross. Idaho Students Favor tions, if any. It could be that ere next season is many weeks old, the Giants will be looking arcund hurriedly for an Arnovich, or just anybody who can get out there on the picket line and keep moving for nine innings. Ott On Way Bark. Mel Ott and Joe Moore have been going back for a couple years, and probably won’t hit their peaks again. In saying "probably,” we merely wish to make sure we are not being too flat-footed about the thing. The point is, the Giants have been skidding farther and farther toward the bottom ever since the passing oi Carl Hubbell’s greatness, and the situation is getting worse all the time. It wouldn’t surprise some of the people around here in the if the Giants were to drop down into a three-cornered fight with the Boston Bees and Philadelphia Phillies for the latter’s time-honored right to the cellar. The Finish Last Year. If Jurges doesn’t come back, the Giants won’t. Even if Jurges is all right, you can name the champion Cincinnati Reds, the Brooklyn Dodgers, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Pittsburgh Pirates, maybe, and the Chicago Cubs, perhaps. all as better bets than the Giants as they stand now. And if you think we’re masterminding, we’ll toss off this secret: The Giants finished behind all those clubs last season and 21 games out of the lead. What makes you think they will be better this time? And we’d like to mention that there is no law giving the Giants the right to win pennants or even finish in the first division by some automatic process. Bui there is more or as much tradition behind that team as any in baseball—remember a gent named John McGraw?—and you nalural-i ly expect to see it up there most of the time. That Bowl Check Soon On Its Way G ENIAL JOHN K. SELLECK (genial to those who really know him, but rated as a first cousin to jUncle Anathema by some disappointed ones who failed to get in on the distribution of Rose Bowl pasteboards) assures this column that he is completely in the dark concerning Nebraska’s share of the New Year’s bowl take at Pasadena. Genial John (still genial to this column) is the guy who rakes in the cash accruing to the Cornhuskers’ exhibitions in competitive sports. In ordinary circumstances, one could expect him to be pretty well in the know on the subject of this year’s Rose Bowl income, but in this particular instance he stoutly avers he has no dependable information and still is awaiting official word from the management at Stanford U., confident, of course, that a fat check will be coming Nebraska’s way by the end of the present month. Inasmuch as John Is holding fast io the assertion that he has no definite information ronceming the bowl business, it is the pleasure of this column to sound the warning that his eyes may bulge and his breath eome short when the bowl check ultimately arrives via the mails. Editor Leiser Spills the Facts F rom a source that is fully as reliable as if Stanford’s graduate manager, Al Masters himself, were speaking, this column learns that when the precious bit of paper, made payable to “John K. Selleck, Treasurer,” shows up at the Cornhusker coliseum, the sum of money thereon specified w’ill lack little, if anything at all, of topping the hundred thousand mark in currency of the national realm. My authority for the above estimate of Nebraska’s slice of the bowl receipts is none other than reliable Bill Leiser, sports tycoon of the San Francisco Chronicle staff. From one of Editor Leiser's recent columns, I glean the “info” that John Public and his tribe deposited some $340,000 in crisp currency at the Rose Bowl box office—the greatest receipts in bowl his- tcry by reason of the fact that every ticket, regardless of the location, was marketed to buyers at $4.40 per; that the $3.30 end seat price of former an- nums was ruled by the management as null and void. NCOLN QUINT N FRIDAY FRAY Red and Black Cagesters To Battle Central On Omaha Moples. By ALEX STODDARD. This is "Opporlunlty Week" for Lincoln high's athletic teams as the first semester ends, what with the basketballers travel­ ling to Omaha for a Friday night return clash with Central's unbeaten quintet and the swimmers, under direction of Coacn Harry Kuklin, going to Des Moines for dual meets with Roosevelt and North teams. Campbell Still In Doubt. Whether Bobby Campbell, crack L. H. S. basketball forw'ard and leading scorer on the team, will be in shape to play against Central is problematical. Campbell injured his right knee tw'O weeks ago in the Ha.stings game and didn’t suit up for either game last week. If Campbell is in shape, Lincoln will be given an even chance of handing Central its first defeat. The earlier gam« found Central winning, 20-19, on a free throw with 20 seconds to play, after a desperate Lincoln rally in the last two periods had overcome Cential’s early lead.

He was serious for that match, a semifinal, but resumed his clowning when he breezed past Eddie Alloo of Rollins college in the finals. Frankie turned serious again yesterday in the finals of the Florida state tournament to crush McNeill by scores of 6-2, 6-4, 6-0. Observers say that McNeill may be stale from too much tennis during his South American tour, but probably will be much tougher when the chips are down—say in the nationals next summer. Kovacs said it would be “a toss up” when next they meet. Frankie goes with the tennis troopers today to St. Petersburg for the Florida west coast tournament, and plans to continue around the circuit. Rochester U. Coaches ROCHESTER. N. Y., Jan 22— (AP)—Richly-endowed, scholastic- minded University of Rochester announced today that Football Coaches Dudley S. DeGroot and Wilbur V. Hubbard had s gned long-term contracts and pledged intercollegiate athletics its support as long as they do not become a “racket.” Rochester’s endowment totals $50,000,000, “The agreement is such that the question of a contract need not and will not come up every year or every few years. To all intents and purposes, DeGroot and Hubbard will be with us indefinitely,” President Alan Valentine declared. The coaches came to Rochester last spring from San Jose, Calif., State college, where DeGroot built a nation-wide reputation for high- scoring, victorious teams. In their first season here, the team; virtually the same that scored but 12 points in 1939, won four games and dropped three. FIGHTS A Last Nijihi f\ Nebraska's Share About 99 Grand P ROCEEDING with Editor Leiser’s detailed statement on the subject of passing out the golden swag, I learn that the division is to be made on the following basis: Share to Tournament of Roses committee (owner of the stadium), $72,000. Game management (general expenses), $20,000. Nebraska’s share, $99,000, this being 40 per cent of remainder after deducting tournament and game management shares. Commissioner Atherton’s office, $25,000. Stanford’s share of remainder, $49,000. Remainder to be divided between 10 Coast conference members, $75,000. Share for each member, $7,500. Stanford’s total, including share as one member, $56,500. While it Is true that Nebraska's share will be less than that accruing to visiting bowl teams of late years, the host team’s portion, as of this year, was subject to a major operation, due to the new rule on the coast that all conference members were privileged to stick a fat finger In the Rose Bowl pie.

Money to Spend On Athletic Plant R EVERTING to Genial John, I have been informed by Nebraska’s keeper of the exchequer that the total expenses incurred by the Cornhuskers during the western junket—for the football squad and official party, the cadet band and the scout squad, —will not be in excess of $30,000. As a matter of fact. Manager Selleck estimates the expenses at $27,500 or thereabouts. On that basis, it is evident that the Cornhusker athletic department will be some $70,000 to the good from its Pasadena junket. What about the disposal of that generous sum? That’s easy —the Nebraska management will lc*-€old Coca-Cola adds to relaxation what rolaxation always needs,— pure, wholesome refreshment. And Coca-Cola has a unlquo taste you never tire of.
