LOS ANGELES, March 29
(AP Chicago's chances of re
taining the National league pen
nant received a severe blow today
when Hazen "Klkl" Cuyler, one
of the finest outfielders In the
senior circuit, suffered a fracture
of his right leg la attempting to
steal; second base in an exhibition
games with Hollywood.
The accident happened in the
fourth inning of the contest
which the cubs won 10 to 8. Klkl
hesitated a moment as he ap
proached the bag, and then de
cided to hit the dirt. He was halt
a step too late in his decision,
and his foot caught in the bag,
giving his leg a sharp twist. He
was carried from the field.
Examination at the Cedars of
Lebanon hospital showed what
doctors termed a "continued
fracture of the lower end of the
fibula," the smaller bone of the
leg. They said a section of the
bone three inches In length had
been severed from the main bone.
Charles Grimm, manager of the
Cubs, said Cuyler would be out
at least eight or 10 week, de
pending on how the bone knits
together again. It was considered
probable, however, that the In
jury would, handicap Kiki in his
fielding and . base running per
haps through the entire season,
once he gets back Into the line
up The Chicago manager was not
prepared to say Just who would
take over the center field post.
but Frank Demaree, obtained
from Sacramento of the Pacific
Coast league was considered the
logical choice. There also was the
possibility that Chicago might
call in George "Tuck" Stainback,
young Los Angeles outfielder.
who was purchased several
months ago at a price variously
quoted at from $S0,000 to $71,'
000 for 1934 delivery.
Cuyler went to the Cuba from
Pittsburgh, where differences
with Donle Bush, at that time
manager of the Pirates, led to
his being kept on the bench most
of one season. He became a rex
gular with the Cubs, and hit .291
last season and fielded .968 al
though a broken bone In his right
foot kept him out of the lineup
until July.

Ten Days Away
Spring football will be "de-em
phasized" completely at Willam
ette university this year. It was
decided Wednesday. Although a
number of ardent gridmen want
ed to turn out, a survey disclosed
that too many of next year's can
didates are working, studying ex
tensively, or planning to concen
trate on baseball or track. Some
of the boys will kick and pass a
football around, but there will be
no organised practice.
The baseball season opens in
less than two weeks, with a game
at Monmouth against Oregon Nor
mal April 11; and so far the Bear
cat squad has not been able to do
any work outdoors. However,
Coach "Spec" Keene plans to seize
every opportunity, and meanwhile
he Is working with an extensive
but inexperienced pitching staff la
the gymnasium.
Departure of Andy Peterson
left a big gap to fill, and no other
twirlers from last year's team will
be available unless Fred Paul
finds time to turn out.
Candidates now working out
are Rex Pemberton from Dallas,
Don Burch from Silverton, Bill
Moy from Tangent who is also a
catcher; Ed Tweed who did a lit
tle pitching two years ago, Gor
don Williams and Francis Ely.
veterans from the 1932 team
which defeated Oregon State,
among other accomplishments, in
clude Emmett McCann and Bob
Houck, catchers; Lowell Gribble,
third baseman; Clay Eggleston,
first sacker who may don the
mask this year; Walt Erickson,
Gus Moore and Walt Commons,
outfielders.
Jobs on both sides of second
base are among those prominently
vacant, to add to the uncertainty
growing out of the absence of any
tried and tested hurlers.
One or two games with the pen
itentiary team may be played be

to take a back seat: we know

wreatling at the armory Tues
day night, bat you can,t tell me
that was what drew the mob;
they went there hoping to see
Bulldog Jackson do something
wilder than ho had done the
week before.
The Bulldog didn't, because
Robin Reed kept him too busy;
but with Reed's able assistance,
tho crowd was kept in feverish
condition quite satisfactorily, and
then there was, of course, that
great climax about which the fans
are still debating. Did Reed, or
did he not, smack the Bulldog
with a chair?
Personally we like our drama
in the theatre excuse it please,
if we have said that before. In
addition to the other woes of
the sport writer we mentioned
recently, and which drew ap
preciative response from the
two examples we mentioned,
there is the difficulty of writing
a column year in and yeavr out,
and trying to avoid repetition.
Even a minister has to talk only
two or three times a week, and
they move to a new flock occa
sionally. Getting hack to drama In sports
of course that is what the fans
always hope to see; they wouldn't,
whether they realize is or not, at
tend baseball, basketball, football
or any other type ot contest un
less they expected something dra
matic. Home runs, long shots that
win in the closing seconds, long
runs and passes for touchdown!
you can't get a crowd unless
there's a promise of some of
those thrills. But we won't have
to enlarge on that remark about
drama in the theatre. You get the
idea.

Granting at the outset that we

TEZ Quickest way to find the
soun try's most earnest pessi
mists is to speak loudly the
menkkor of some baaebaDer who haa
lost taken ever a team and prom
ised to reorganise that team and
brinx it up from the cellar. For in
stance, mention the name of Bill
Tarry, who is trying to do Just that
with the Giants. The gloomy Gus
taves with their brsjubeand ham
mers have raised! a powerful echo
concerning Terry's chances of snc-

The Giants are new they are
different this year, as our adver
tising cousin might say. They even
hare new uniforms -dark blue
sweatshirt and a color schema of
gold, if yon care to know.
Terry determined early that none
but players who would stand four
square behind him would be in the
lineup. Hence, criticism to the con
trary notwithstanding, he disposed
of men like Walker, Mooney, Lind-
strom and Hoean.
What the Giants will need this
year more than anything else is first
class pitching. Terry intends, he
says, to piece us oruns ox ui
mound work on Parmelee and Schu
macher. Much faith is placed in
Starr, whom Terry got from the
Cardinals, and he also has Shores,
who did nice work in the Coast
League, and Spencer, whom Terry
eonaiders a better Ditcher than his
work with the Pirates showed. Then
there are Herman Bell and Luque,
for relief, and the old standbys,
Hubbell and Fitxaimmons.
Among the new members of the
team are James and PeeL both
heavr kitten from the Texas
League; George Davies, former
Philliea player, who averaged more
than .500 with the stkk, and Ryan,
a snortstop woo turned in some sen
sational work for the Buffalo Inter
nationals last year. And there are

Terry has proclaimed to all and
sundry that the new Giants win be
a clever aggregation. Lots of base-
steaung ana smart 'play. well,
that's nice; and foretells a colorful
shewing by the Giants. What is
more essential, perhaps, is the abil
ity to ret to first base, an accom
plishment commonly 'achieved by
safe hitting, in . carry practice
games the Giants were woefully
lacking in that branch of the indus
try. But we are not the one to slip
into the ranks of the pessimists.
Not us. We dip our fandom's
spotlight to Bill Terry's f ertkright
manner and do-or-die spirit. -We
cant help peering back over our
shoulder at the Greatest-of-'em-avll,
McGraw. And we hope that the
fans will give Terry a hand. He has
a lot to live up to, and a long way to
go.
