Grimm Not to Stand Pat With Cubs That Spurted to National League Peak
— «j
Wrigley Won’t Be Satisfied
Till Club Hoists World
Title Banner.
CHICAGO. November 4.—Charlie
Grimm is not going to stand entirely
pat on the Chicago Cub team which
reeled off 21 consecutive victories to
win the National League champion
P. K Wrigley. youthful owner of
the Cubs, was happy in his team's
performance, but it still has to win^
1hP world championship—which was
the ambition of his father before
him—and that Is his goal in 193fi.
The Cubs will not need a lot of re
building. The young Infield of Cavar
retta, Herman. Jurges and Haok will
pontinue intact. Augie Galan. the
"Flying Frenchman." and Frank Dem
*ree are certainties in the outfield ■
and that grand veteran "Gabby" I
Hartnett and the youthful and fiery
Jimmy O'Doa will continue as catch
ers. Warnrke and Lee of the pitch
ing staff are sure to remain aces of
the team. But Chicago must have
another outfielder and two or three
more pitchers.
May i nanpp ms «mu.
I low to get them? Perhaps the
■*1 unlimited Wrigley bank roll may
do the trick. Last Winter. Mr. Wrig
]py declared he was through paying
high prices for players, having in mind
the young fortunes spent for • Babe"
Herman. "Chuck" Klein and some
others. But perhaps a pennant win
ner has changed Wrigley s ideas.
The Phillips and the Braves after
poor seasons may be willing to ex
change one of their few star pitchers
for cold cash. The Cubs could use
Curt Davis or Ed Brandt and Wallie
Berger would be a grand addition to
their outfield. Chances are Grimm

Winter league meetings open for busi
The Cubs hate one great trading
chattel in "Woody" English, a sharp
infielder. who was the forgotten man
of the team all last season. Only 28
years of age. English has been with
the Cubs nine seasons and for eight
was the regular short stop or third
baseman. BUI Jurges' sensational
fielding drove him from short to third
base and last reason he was benched
in preference for Lindsirom and
H»( k
There are many who believe English
Hie equal of either Lindstrom or Hack
at third base and his permanent
benching was one of the puzzles of the
Cub campaign. English is one of the
highest priced players on the Chicago
team and tremendously popular with
the players and owners—if not the
manager—but undoubtedly would like
to get with a team on which he could
play regularly.
Giants Eyeing English.
'T'HERE is talk that English may
land with the New York Giants,
although Bill Terry has no pitchers to
offer in exchange. Terry was here
recently and all sorts of rumors
bloomed there is no question but that
Terry wants some infielders and Eng
lish would make him a good hand,
since the little man ran play second
base as well as short or third. Frankie
Frisch is another who would not be
adverse to securing English and the
other five clubs of the league would
find him a valuable player. English
likely will be traded, in which event
Hartnett could become the Cub cap
tain. but whatever club gets him will
have to bid high m pitchers or cash.
P. K. Wrigley promised ‘Chuck”
Klein a new contract when the out
fielder hit a home run in the fifth
world series game, so Charles prob
ably escaped a trip down the river.
Lindstrom might go in a deal, since
he was of little value to the team until
the closing month of the season.
"Lindy” is no longer a great batter
and the Cubs could sacrifice him for
a younger man. Tex Carleton. the
tall pitcher, is certain to be on the
market but the valiant, veteran
Charlie Root will be kept, for without
him the Cubs would not have won in
1935. Larry French might go in a
deal but only if a better southpaw
could be obtained.
The Cubs won't trade many but any
deals made will be of tiemendous im
portance to the success of the club.
With a few additions, Wrigley might
achieve his ambition for a world
championship team in 1936.

The spectators got their first tingle
of excitement early when the visitors
swept toward the iocals’ goal, only to
find Wilson. Sullivan and Hook neatly
blocking their best scoring efforts.
An offensive of their own then was
started by the District champions with

When an individual or a team in
competition begins to slip and crack
the collapse can take place in a hurry.
It can be like a powder explosion. This
is what happened to Ohio State when
her thirteen points, once as tail as

began to crumble.
And this final collapse happened to
come against a game, fast, desperate
team that refused to surrender for

backs that ever carried a triple charge

play. When you are falling back and
the other fellow is coming on. it
doesn't take long for the tidal wave
to break. Neither Ohio State's first
nor second string was seasoned enough
to stem any such break, or alert,
enough to muss up a passing game
that opened raggedly and finished
with well-trained skill.
I Ohio State still is a fine foot ball
! team but it will take something now to
head off Notre Dame from the Rose
Bowl trail, even with Pilney. the
four-men-in-one. nursing a torn lig

action for many weeks.
Stopping this inspired Notre Dame
team, with Elmer Layden in charge,
will be something for Northwestern.

think about. With Pilney around.

Old Putter Wins McLeod Golf Titles
Club He Got in 1911 Favored Over Famed Mashie-Niblick by Wee Scot.
IT MAY not bf the oldest golf
club in use around Washing
ton but it certainly Is one of
the most deadly.
Fred McLeod s keen-bladed little
mashie-niblick is the club with
which he has attained international
fame as a player of bunker shots,
but when it comes to potent golf
clubs Freddy thinks his ancient
wooden-shafted putter is his most
lethal weapon.
Back in 1911 Freddie picked up a
new. shiny Braid-Mills putter, an
aluminum - headed weapon which
seemed to do well by him. He has
carried the little toy along with
him down through 24 years of
knocking around golf courses on
two continents and in Innumerable
championships. That putter has
helped the little Columbia Scot to
win several championships, but it
wasn't with him when he won the
national open crown In 1908. Fred
die was putting with a blade putter
i In the years since 1911 putter
styles have changed plenty of times
and Fred has gone from wooden
shafted clubs to steel-shafted weap
ons. but he still sticks to his old
love when it comes down to the
business of getting the ball in the
You could change all the clubs
in McLeod's bag, including his be
loved mashie - niblick, but you
. couldn't wean that putter away
from him. He is too good with the
darned thing.
You hear a lot about Freddie's
skill in the white wastes of the
bunker, his consistently straight
ivooden-club play, but you hear lit
tle about his putting. The plain
fact of the matter is that that
moribund weapon, first fashioned
nearly a quarter century ago, func
tions for one of the better putters
The way Freddie bowls in those
nerve-testing six-footers is a cau
tion and the faster he putts the
better. No looking over the line,
surveying it from hole to ball, for
Freddie. He simply walks up and
taps the ball and the doggoned
thing goes into the cup. It's all as
simple as that.
Fred has shifted back and forth
over the last two or three years
from wod to steel and he isn't yet
sure that steel is the better. He
calls the steel-shafted clubs "gas
pipes” and insists that steel hasn’t
yet been made to have the feel of

Inaugurate Indoor Season With
36-Round Program Featuring
Eley and Buffalo.
piGHT-HUNGRY fans of the Dls
trict will be served with a 36
round all-colored card tonight as the
Indoor season is Inaugurated at the
Lincoln Colonnade.
Billy Eley, undefeated In nine pro
fessional starts, will clash with the
clever Gene Buffalo in the 10-round
main event.
Scoring 67 knockouts in winning
114 out of 119 scraps. Eley has taken
such prominent pugilists as Georgia
Gibbs, Calvin Reed and Phil Mc
Quillan. while Buffalo is remembered
for his three bruising battles here
with Meyer Rowan, all of which
Buffalo won.
While Buffalo has scored over Harry
Serody and Patsy Wallace in addi
tion to Rowan, Eley is a dangerous
puncher who may prove troublesome
to the Philadelphia welterweight.
A clever boxer who continually
keeps most of his opponents off bal
ance. Buffalo usually Ls content to
pile up points. while weaving and
dancing around his enemy.
In the semi-final bout. Calvin Reed
will meet Baby Kid Chocolate in a
scheduled eight-round match, while
other bouts list Jack Grant facing
Howard Brown, Lem Simon tangling
with Johnny Freeman and Bobby

Two fish on one cast, on one bait,

frequently. There are even cases of

catches was that of a single-bait- i
ed hook taken in by one fish with the !
hook passing out through its gills to
be grabbed by a second fish, w hich j

Another unusual case was that of,
a three-pound bass taken on a "river

pound wall-eyed pike endeavored to
take it away from Mr. Bass and
found himself also hooked.

black bass In fresh water and the

All bass streams are in wonderful
condition, some perhaps just a little
loo clear for the best Ashing. The
Potomac is not green, but indigo,
almost black, a sight for sore eyes. In
the river below Washington, in Pis

many large-mouth bass are caught
and Sergt. Richardson at Fort Wash

Gunston Cove have plenty boats and

On a tour of inspection Thursday

Old Anglers Club on Conduit Road
that bore a sign, “boats for hire.” i
There was no one around at the time. '
so we could not get the name. It Is
the last house on the left-hand side
of the road before you reach the old
club house.
The water is treacherous in this
part of the river and we advise a
guide if you can obtain a boat. Don't
take unnecessary risks.
Judge William S. Snow and Herbert
Knight of Alexandria fished off St.
Jeromes Creek Jast week and landed
26 rockflsh, none large, but did not
get a blue. We don't advise anglers
to seek this species now. It Is more
or less a hit-or-miss proposition, al- j
though we do not believe all the blues
ever leave the bay waters. As a matter
of fact, we have heard of them being
landed by commercial fishermen in
their nets throughout the Winter, but
not in large numbers.
CMALL or pan-size rockfish are being
^ landed everywhere this Fall in the
bay and iU tributaries. We received a
letter from William Fischer of 515 De
catur street, who said:
"I have been interested In reading
your column on fishinz. and in turn
thought you might be interested In
knowing that a party out with Capt.
Tom Henley of North Beach. Md„ re
cently in three hours' trolling caught
61 rockfish, ateraging from 1 to 2’^
pounds. After running out of bait, we
used red inner tube strips '6-inch
wide and 1 Inch in length and caught
quite a few." The party consisted of
William Fischer and his son. John
Frasser. R A. Davis and Bernard
"Brownie” Ward.
W. L. Santman writes: "I see you
also are fishing for rorkfi'h since the
blues appear to have left our waters.
Did not think you would be interested
in catches of small rock, so did not
bother to give you a report last week.
My partner. S. T. Malby. and I got
70 small rock last week, the majority !
being caught off Town Point, opposite
the big ships at Solomons. Tuesday
we trolled around Cedar Point Light
and landed 04 pan rock up to 2 pounds.
Lost a few larger ones and threw baric
a number of very small fish of this
species. All were caught on a small
spinner with bloodworm. We spent
some time trolling around Lower or
Little Cove Point, but no luck with
blues or rock."
'T'HE Autumn run of fish now is on
at Wachapreague, Va., according
to word received from A. H. G. Mears.
He writes that last Wednesday he
landed 47 sea trout. Must be plenty
down that way.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Parker of 1518
Twenty-ninth street have just re
turned from a month's visit to Miami
Beach, Fla. These two anglers take
their fishing seriously and seldom
missed a day on the waters of the
Gulf Stream. They landed many sail
fish. five in one day being the biggest
catch. The largest weighed 57 pounds
and was caught by Mrs. Parker. She
said the sailftsh came along in large
n mbers following the first storm of
the Fall season and were everywhere
in the Gulf Stream. She also said
4hat the first blues of the Fall season
made their appearance off the Florida
coast 10 days ago.
