. Giants Recognition
: ; Of Sport Writers
Carl Owen Hubbell, celebrated
southpaw ( pitcher of. the world
champion Giant, who never so
mueb. as ' received a single rote
before tie contest, emerged to
day by offlclaa ballot of tbe ex
perts as the ? National league's
'most valuable player" for 1933.
' The rote was almost unanimous
for the Meeker, Okla., master of
the screwball, who scored 23 vic
tories during the league season,
including 10 shutouts, and twice
pithced - the ' Giants to triumph
over the Senators In thejworld
series without allowing a single
earned run in 20 innings.
Hubbell scored 77 points out of
a maximum possible total of SO
In the contest, decided by ballots
of a committee of eight members
of the Baseball Writers' Associa
tion of America and announced
by the chairman, Denman Thomp
son of the Washington Star. The
pitcher won by a decisive margin
over two outfield rivals, Chuck
Klein of the Phillies,, and Wally
Berger of the Braves, who finish
ed second and third with 48 and
44 points, respectively.
Six of the eight ballots marked
Hubbell's name at the top of the
list. The two others rated him
second and third. Points were on
the basis of 10 for first, nine for
second, and so cn.
X Manager Bill Terry of the
Giants received the other two
first-place designations but wound
np fourth in total points with 35,
-followed by Pepper Martin, third
base sensation of the Ca'dlnals,
: with 31.
Three other stars of the
Giants made the top-flight, with
Gus Mancnso sixth, Bionay nyan
ninth and Hal Schumacher
twelfth. Last year Terry and Mel
Ott were the only New Yorkers
on the list..
" The entire National league re
flected the writers' belief that
there was an unusually big turn
over In star talent. Seventeen of
the 27 players receiving actual
votes In the contest were not even
mentioned on the- 1932 list. Lon
Warneke, Cubs youg right-hander
and runner-up to Klein last
year, was named on only one bal
lot. Hubbell and Klein were the
only pert omen listed by every
member of the committee.

Billy Edwards Headlocks
Wilson Into Submission;
Flying Tackles Work Once
Two punishing headlocks of the
chiropractic variety were all that
Billy Edwards needed to gain two
out othree falls from George
Wilson the ex-University of Wash
ington gridster, in their scheduled
two tour wrestling match at the
armory last night.
The Kansas City bntcher boy
opened the fray by toppling Wil
son with a series of Jabs from tho
side of his right arm. Edwards
proved to be on his toes through
out the first frtme as he managed
to elude all of Wilson's Sonnen
berg and flying tackle threats.
Following a slugfest of-the wild
est nature, the headlock king took
the first fall in four minutes by
pinning his opponent with his pet
"chiropractic" headlock.
It took 45 seconds for George
Wilson to demonstrate to the sur
prised crowd his newly developed
sonnegnberg. with a series or
twelve flying tackles he knocked
Edwards from one side of the ring
to the other and finally pinned
him with a body press to even the
match np.
Wilson returned for the final
fall expecting to continue his leap
ing tactics, but Edwards met one
flying leap with a knee to the
pit of the stomach. In short order
A gathering of Salem sub-dis

he applied his pet head hold to
the dazed Wilson and was award
ed the match after taking the fall
in six minutes. Except for a short
time in the second period, Ed
wards appeared to have every
thing his own way, and the final
result seemed to be never In
doubt. .
Buddy Edwards, nephew of the
headlock artist, battled George
Bennett of Tulsa 45 minutes for
a draw after each wrestler bad
taken a fall. Young Edwards hit
Bennett with everything but his
fist, but Bennett wouldn't be
downed even after part of the
match was staged outside of the
ling with the wrestlers and the
referee down on the floor. Ed
wards used a chiropractic head
lock to grab the first fall, and
Bennett won the second by virtue
of a freak hold. Edwards fell over
his back, and the Tulsan pinned
him with a body press. The time
of the fall "was eleven minutes.
Joe Gardiner won the prelim
inary from Sailor Jack of San
Francisco in the curtain raiser.

BOSTON, Oct. 10 (AP)-i
(U. S. Dept.-Agr.) Most lines of

Have you noticed? But of
course you have, and it's super
fluous for us to point oui. that
the little' colleges are getting
places against the big ones in
football this season. Both Wil
lamette and Southern Oregon
Normal held Oregon Stare even
for three pelods, and lost only to
superior reserve strength. But
now comes little Columbia with
the biggest splurge of all. The
Webfeet, counting on a "breath
er" in which a lot of reserves
could get experience, were fought
to a standstill by the Portland
edition of the "Irish and it took
a 67-yard run for a touchdown in
the last five minutes of play to
beat them. Prink Callison had to
uncover his secret "prize pack
age," Maurice Van Vlelt, whom
he had hoped to spring unsus
pected on Washington, to make
that winning run.
Linfield dropped one of
those traditional big - score
games to Oregon, Paget Sonnd
to Washington State and Whit
man to Idaho, bnt you can't
prove anything by that either.
Sometimes the coaches for the
small colleges try to make
those games close, and some
times they look on them as
practice games, same as the
big 'fellows; and send in every
body. They try especially to
avoid injuries and refuse to
leave theL first stringers in
there after they become tired.
. Not much information came
out " of .' Eueene Saturday nle-ht
about- that 14-7 Oregon Tlctory
over Columbia, and the suspicion
was that Callbon used reserves
all afternoon, but the Eneene
sport writers declare to the con
trary. Tney say the absence of
Temple was a handicap to the
Webfeet and that Stew Milligan's
failure to fill Mark's shoes ne
cessitated the appearance of "Van

The annual open house at the
Beacon 'bulb farm will be held
Sunday all day and evening, with

color noticeably greater, J. W.
Baxter, owner, said.
v The . beds are all electrically

Washington Picked
to Halt
Whitewash Jinx in Tilt
Saturday at Seattle
Eugene, Oct 10 (Special) The
struggle for gridiron supremacy
between the Universities of Ore
gon and Washington tlong the
classic of the northwest will be
renewed next Saturday when the
two elevens : .eet in the
ton sto-Cium at Seattle.
Washington will be fighting to
break a record of not having de
feated an Oregon team! for five
years, while the Lemon-Yellow
eleven will be out topreserve the
list of victories that is becoming
tradition vith them. :
Not since 1926 when! the Hus
kies won a 24 to 9 triumph has
a Washington team ccored on the
Webfeet. For four years the
Ducks won shutout victories. Last
fall the contest ended in a 0-0
tie. , i
This year Washington will en
ter the game a favorite! to upset
the Oregon "jinx." Sport ob
servers are unanimous In conced
ing the Huskies one of the great
est machines ever molded at Se
attle, uregon, while having a
strong first string eleven, will be
sadly lacking In reserves.
Early season injuries will de
prive the Webfeet of one. of their
star linesmen, with possibilities
of their leading backfield star
watching most of the game from
the bench. Erwin "Biff? Nilsson,
two-year veteran at right tackle
and by far the most consistent
linesman on the squad, suffered
a broken ligament in his knee in
the game' with Columbia univer
sity last Saturday and will not
appear against the Huskies.
Mark Temple, co-captain and
spark plug of the Webfoot back-
field, has not been in a suit since
the Jonzaga game two weeks ago
and chances of his being in first
class condition are slight. The re
mainder of the Oregon team will
be In A-l shape.

Keene Shuffles Players to
Find Best Combination for
Puget Sound Battle Friday
The process of player - shifting,
normally an early - season pro
cedure tor teams which start with
easy games and gradually take on
their stronger opponents, is now
on full blast in the camp of the
Willamette Bearcats, having been
deferred to the two weeks per
iod following two difficult games
near the opening of the season.
. Coach "Spec" Keene and his as
sistants are devoting the more
strenuous portion of the present
search for the right personnel, to
the end positions where 10 candi
dates are being looked over; last
year's regulars, KaiBer and
Grtbble, head the list but they
are being given keen competition
by Versteeg, Clark, Petteys, Mc
Adam who has been moved from
tackle, Brandon, Ross, Steelham
mer and Bronk Williams.
Bob Vagt the big boy from
Tillamook, has been definitely
stationed at tackle, as one result
of this shuffling process. The
tackle quartet is now rather def
initely established as Weisser,
the hour glass to get lis first
three-year contract signed before
stepping Into his 27th year.

In addition to the sextet of

Cannady and Mills, four other
candidates are now coming to the
front; Stone who is developing
