Griffith Planning No Shake-Up of Nationals After He Signs New Manager WANTS BIG EDGE IE DEAL IS MADE Only Pitchers Are Sought by Old Fox—Sees Powell Getting Schulte's Job. BY JOHN B. KELLER. CLARK GRIFFITH is getting a new manager, but not a new ball club. The grizzled boss of the Nationals declares he Is right well satisfied with most of the talent at hand and that he believes the addition of a seasoned pitcher or two would put his ball club in the thick of the pennant fight next year. But Griffith says all this with reser vation. He admits he is ready to throw any member of his ball club into a trade provided the trading would benefit the Nationals. He will be ready to give a waste basket for two fine office desks any time to complete the fur nishing of his Georgia avenue estab lishment. And he will trade along the same lines when it comes to base ball playing stock. However, the Washington club's boss brands as untrue all rumors that he deliberately will put on the block such outfielders as Heinie Manush and Fred Schulte and that sterling second baseman. Buddy Myer. Noth ing to that New York report that the Yankees will get Manush and Myer in exchange for a flock of players and cash. Nor is Schulte slated to be shipped to the Indians, says Griffith. He insists no trade is planned and no deal cooking. Likes His Outfielders. GRIFFITH believes his present out field talent is about as fine a lot as could be rounded up and sees no reason to make changes. Manush's legs are not worrying the boss. He points out that Heinie had trouble with his underpinning the first year he was with the Nationals—that was back in '30—and got over it between seasons. He expects the big Dutch man's props, that broke down this year, to be in good trim again before the next campaign gets under way. Listening to Griffith, one would be lieve Schulte to be the paragon of outfielders. A great flyhawk, a fine thrower and ever a dangerous batter, insists the leader with a flashing eye that seems to dare one to contradict him. Schulte will hit around .300 any season, according to Griffith, who be lieves that mark high enough—for Schulte. Yet right on top of this the big boss reveals plans to make Schulte a second string outfielder next season, along with Fred Sington. the busting ex-foot bailer bought from Albany. Griffith figures A1 Powell, the local lad brought back to the Nationals after five years of schooling in the minors, will make the grade as a center fielder next year. And A1 will be flanked by Manush and Jack Stone. Powell Gets His Hits. NOW there's an outfielder for you —this Stone, says Griffith bub bling over with enthusiasm. Even better than Schulte, the boss pop»— after he has praised the player he contemplates making an irregular. Yet Stone, who swings from the left side, has his troubles with left-hand pitch ers. So what could be better than have Schulte or Sington, right-handers both, swing for Jack when those poison portsiders are at work? And Griffith says Powell would be his pick for the center field post, even though Sington is by far the better hitter. Sington is more true with his swing and hits them farther than Powell, Griffith would have one believe. This Powell boy, though. He gets bunches of dinky hits. And he is a flash on the bases. Has speed and knows how to get around the paths. Griffith already has Jake the Plumber —that's Powell—leading off in the batting order and getting on almost every time he steps to the plate. All is not rosy with Griffith, how ever. Back of the brash stuff he is splashing on his outfield stock are worries. They have to do with his mound material- Eddie Linke is put ting some furrows in the boss' brow. So is Earl Whitehill. Linke Number One Worry. LINKE'S arm that mysteriously went "dead" near the end of the last campaign has not come around at all. The latest report from Chicago, where the reformed iat boy makes his home, states that there is no im provement in the ailing flipper. And the medics and surgeons are all at tea about the case. Odd ailment, this of Linke's. He vas getting along in great style when suddenly his arm became lifeless. No circulation. No pulse. No grip in the hand. Just a cold, useless limb. In some way the blood stream feeding the limb had been alarmingly de creased. There was no history back of the ailment to account for it. Linke had not hurt the arm. It had given him no pain. Washington and Baltimore specialists examined the limb. X-rays revealed no cause of impairment. No examination revealed a cause for the malady. And the doctors still are wondering what it is all about. So Linke has become Griff's num ber one worry. The big boss had been counting heavily on Linke to become a corking hill starter for the Nationals next year. The boy had just arrived and appeared capable of quickly developing into a great pitch er. Then the arm flopped. And now no one knows whether Linke ever will pitch again. Earl Must Watch Diet. THE Whitehill worry is not so se rious. It has to do with Earl's tendency to. take on weight easily and quickly. And when the left-hander has those spare tires around the middle his pitching ef fectiveness Is considerably reduced. Whitehill now is making the Ori ental tour with the ball players under the guidance of Babe Ruth and Con nie Mack. And Griffith fears his prize portsider won't watch his diet and will return carrying much extra poundage. This would make training such a grueling grind that Whitehill might wear himself out before next season starts. Griffith already is planning punish ment for Whitehill, should the latter come back too chubby. It will be the hills around Hot Springs—and they are tall ones—that Earl will have to climb at no mean pace for something like two weeks before the training routine begins at Biloxl, according to Griffith. Which would not please Whitehill at all. But Griffith regards Whitehill as his best pitching bet. And when it comes to driving the portsider into the pink, the Nationals' president does not Intend to spare the lash or U>e hosses. I V c. . Rickey Better Off Than Being Prexy I Br the Associated Press. ST. LOUIS, November 3--Sam Breadon. president of the St. Louis Cardinals, said today that Branch Rickey, mentioned as a possible successor to John A. Heydler as president of the Na tional League, "could not aiTord to take the job." "Certainly it is," Breadon said, when asked if he meant Rickey's position with the Cardinals is bet ter from a financial standpoint than the National League presi dency. "Branch could not afford to accept the job." Rickey, vice president and busi ness manager of the Cardinals, is in charge of the club's far-flung "chain" system. Capitalizes Only on Half of Opportunities—Far Out classes Crimson. (Continued From Ninth Page.) Hon which was the better team nor any real doubt about the outcome, but the Tigers either bogged down against Harvard's fighting defense or tossed away scoring opportunities with extreme prodigality. Prince ton had at least 5ix scoring oppor tunities in each hall, but capitalized only three of them. Constable First to Score. GARRY LEVAN, ace halfback of Princeton's platoon of ball-car riers, got the Tigers away to a roaring start with a 32-yard run back of a Harvard punt, but the drive bogged down on the Crimson's 5-yard line and it took four more drives be fore Fullback Constable finally broke through for a touchdown in the sec ond period. He plunged across from the 3-yard line as the culmination of a 65->ard advance, during which "Kats" Kadlic. Tiger quarterback, and Ken Sandbach engineered two long passes for total gains of 40 yards. Hammering continually into Har vard territory, the Tigers three times failed to crack the Crimson defense within scoring range in the third quarter. Led by Capt. Herman Gund lach, who refused to leave his place in the line even when injured, Har vard fought ο3 Princeton's over whelming power. Two Tallies in Last Period. The Crimson crack-up came finally, in the last period, after the plunging Constable had twice been hurled back by Harvard forwards. From mid field, Levan sped 22 yards for the day's longest run from scrimmage. Harvard was penalized 15 yards for roughness, giving Princeton first down on the 11-yard line. Ken Sandbach tossed into the end zone to Gil Lea for a touchdown, after ripping off tackle to Harvard's 7-yard mark. With the reserves of both teams manning most of the positions, Prince ton's third touchdown came soon after the interception of a desperate Har vard pass and a 15-yard sprint by Dean Hill, substitute Tiger back on Harvard's 21. Les Kaufman lugged the bell 14 yards in three running plays," but Paul Pauk took a lateral from Quarterback "Kats" Kadlic and ran wide around Harvard's left end for the score.

(Continued Prom Ninth Page > opportunity. Tuffy seemed a little slow in getting the ball away but It may have been the fleetness of Plas man that solely was responsible for George Washington's big pain. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound end was a terror throughout the afternoon. Time and again his charges hastened the passes and kicks of Leemans and Ben Plot nickl, who were the only versatile members of the Colonial backfleld. Three punts were blocked by the Com modores and they intercepted four passes, any one of which might have meant a touchdown. Dickison Recovers Blocked Kick. EORGE WASHINGTON was on its own 19-yard line when Plas man made the block, the ball bounding back 10 yards to be fallen on by Leo Dickison, left guard, who, by the way, was very much in the game from start to finish. It was far from apparent whether Dixon meant to run or pass on the scoring play. He fell back as though to heave, but veered into an end run, moving toward the right side of the field. This maneuver drew all but one George Washington player to the right, then Randy turned suddenly and pitched to the left, where Geny was standing two yards back of the goal. Only Bernie Witucki, Colonial center, was within the Immediate ter ritory. He leaped for the oval which arched over his head and into the arms of Geny, who stood flat-footed for the catch. Then Plasman place-kicked per fectly for thé added point that finally spelled victory. An injury may have cost the Co 'lonials a tie. Harry Deming, the big tackle upon whom G. W. depends for place-kicks, was knocked out awhile before the Colonials scored and was not fully recovered, it appeared, when he tried for the extra point. The ball sailed several feet to the left of the target. Injuries Hit Colonials. BUT Deming's mishap which hurt a leg, may not have been as costly as the loss of efficiency through injury of Leemans. With for ward passing as G. W.'s principal weapon and Leemans its only efficient passer, Tufify had the bitter misfor tune late ?ϋ the third period of sprain ing the '.numb of his throwing hand. More than 17,000 paid to see the game and were rewarded with count less thrills. The defeat left the Co lonials with a record of four victories, one defeat and one tie. the latter with Denver University which they clearly outplayed, even ω they outgained the enemy yesterday by a large margin. Vanderbilt picked up only 55 yards rushing against 121 for George Wash ington, and lost 44 yards from scrim mage against 9 for the Buff and Blue. The Colonials gained 115 on passes against 26 for the Commodores. Fumbles, blocked kicks and intercep tions were ruinous to the G. W. cause. Leemans alone of either team could advance the ball consistently. His 93 yards on 24 carries was more than three times the amount of ground picked up by Vandërbilt's leader in this respect, who was Arnold Peebles. Peebles, however, had fewer opportu nities. Prom end to end, both lines played hard and well with G. W.'s powerful Deming and Parrish and Vandërbilt's Plasman shining above the others. The Colonials now look to their j featured game of the 1934 season with Louisiana State University's great team next Saturday at Griffith Sta dium. Line-ups and Summary. Pos. Ο W. (6).

On the first play of the final period, Buckler, who dazzled the crowd with his lightning thrusts, de spite the muddy field, was injured and taken out, Maurice Simons re placing him. In three blasts at the line Simons lugged the ball to the Illinois 28. Then came a series of fumbles and breaks, and when they cleared Illi nois held the ball a foot from its own goal. An unidentified Army player, covered with mud, pounced on the ball after a blocked kick on the 2 yard line.

Taking a pass from the Catholic 15, Oliver standing on his 5-yard line, gave the ball a mighty boot and it soared high to land 11 yards from the Western Maryland goal, 84 yards from where it had left the kicker's foot.

Many Capital Horsemen Ride As Chase of Reynard Starts THE huntsman's horn and rattle of galloping hoofs echoed through the valleys of nearby Virginia and Maryland yester terday, signaling formal inauguration of the 1934-35 fox-hunting season for scores of sportsmen in Washington and its environs. Three packs of hounds which draw patronage from the District and coun try adjacent to it opened their Fall schedules under ideal conditions, while in outlying points of Northern Vir ginia and the Green Spring Valley sector of Maryland the chase was car ried forward with renewed impetus. Fairfax, Redlands and the Riding and Hunt Club hounds, the trio of units most closely followed by local ! equestrians, each reported improviA and expanded territory and additions to their working packs as the new year began. Fairfax had first crack at the sport yesterday, meeting on the historic green of Fairfax County Court House at 10 a.m. A field of almost two-score riders assembled to follow John Finerty and De Long Bowman, joint M. P. Η , in a hot two-hour chase over country that has been hunted since George Washington and his fellow squires of Colonial days rode forth in search of excitement. Both Redland and the Riding and Hunt Club packs met in Maryland. Under the guidance of Maj Wilfrid M. Blunt and Dr. Fred Sanderson, joint M. F. H., the latter pack carried a field of more than 40 men and women over a sweeping circle bçgun at Goat farm gate on River road. A score of hunters constituted the field which ftide behind Thomas T.

Working as a printer on The Star—and Heydler still maintains his membership in the Interna tional Typo graphical Un ion — Heydler managed to find time to umpire sandlot games and also write base bail news for the newspapers.

WINDING up the club cham pionship season at the golf clubs about the Capital, Dr. C. E. Buck, superin tendent of the Episcopal Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital and president of the club, annexed the Washington Golf and Country Club title yester day, while Harry G. Pitt, the big Manor 'Moose," was winning hi* third Manor Club crown. Dr. Buck, who beat the favored James G. Drain by the impressive margin of 7 and 6, became the first president of a Washington club in 20 years to win a club golf title. Pitt, who beat J. William Harvey, jr., by 1 up, has won the Manor Club title twice before and has won all the major crowns in this part ol the land. Less than a month ago Dr. Buck succeeded Charles H. Doing, jr., as club president. Today he holds the golf title, crowned the premier player of the club. In winning he had com paratively little trouble. Drain Not in Form. JIMMY DRAIN, the same lad who qualified for the national ama teur championship two months ago, has played little golf since the joust at Brookline, Mass., and did not play well in yesterday's final. Dr. Buck, scoring a 78 for the first 18 holes of the scheduled 36-hole final, had Drain 5 down at the turn, against Drain's 85. Although Jimmy won the first three holes in the after noon engagement to cut Buck's lead to two holes, the clergyman-president came back with a burst of par golf that put him 4 up at the twenty seventh. He then won the next three holes to wind up the match by 7 and 6. The cards: Morninr Round.
