Tuesday, when a small group
of players started the flight
south to the training grounds,
a migration that will be joined
shortly by most ot the other
major league clubs.
"I hated to see the hoys
start south without me,' said
the venerable National circuit
' prexy. "Of all the years I've
been In baseball 1 don't think
I've ever awaited the opening
ot a season with so much Im
patience. 4 I'm so restless, I
feel as It I'm wearing a hair

son It Is boced to be."
Heydler pointed out that he
was keenly Interested in the
Giants, who though standing
pat with their championship
regulars of 1933, are taking
a large squau tu iuo

The Dig Question is: Will
. the Bhlft of their training camp
from Los Angeles to Florida,
the adoption of the uniform
"livelier" ball and the mo
mentous changes in manage

the league help or hinder the
Giants during the season which
opens on April 17?

'Next time - a wrestler Is

pital with a broken back.
Authorities are considering
bringing action against his op

completely paralyzed and may

That, apparently. Is last how
serious some of these so-called
grudge matches can become.
