_ — ■ ■ — — ■ ■— -—■ i ■ —■ ■ i— ■ ————, ,, _... — ■ - ■ ■ ■ — - — — _ BY BOSS GRIFFITH Competitive Spirit Strong as Nationals Get Under Way at Orlando. BY FRANCIS E. STAN, Staff Correspondent of The Star. ORLANDO. Fla.. March l.—To a mythical rolling of drums and blaring of trumpets the curtain rose today on a new Washington ball club training camp extravaganza and revealed, as chief characters, a curious score of wide eyed rookies and staid veterans. Some of them girded their loins today for a battle that may last until the American League campaign opens. A spirit of competition reigns and only thinly veiled was it as the Senators, new and old. took command of Tinker Field to start five weeks of condi tioning under Orlando's famed Cen tral Florida sun. •It's a good ball club," pronounced President Clark Griffith. "I'm not saying that we will win the pennant, but worse teams than ours have done It. I think it will be a club with great spirit and plenty of batting punch." Wasdrll Gets Consideration. /'"'RTFFITH was not thinking of Buck ^ Newsom when he mentioned the club's spirit. Newsom is not the only unsigned player, but Griffith is regard ing Buck as the person marring an otherwise placid outlook As the cara van headed for the ball park today, Bhortstop Cecil Travis and Outfielders Ben Chapman and Johnnv Stone were Unsigned, along with Newsom, but Griffith expects no serious trouble from this trio. “As for Newsom.” said Griffith, "I don't know what to think. He is sup posed to report today, but I'm certain he will not be here. Newsom called me Saturday night from his home in Hartsville and said he had a touch of the flu and asked if I had changed my mind about boosting his salary. I told him I had not. " 'Then I won't be down,’ said New iom. and that's the last word I've had.” Both Griffith and Manager Bucky Harris, the latter arriving yesterday »t the head of a skeleton squad from Washington, publicly announced the throwing open of several jobs. One came as a surprise. All along Shanty Hogan was to battle Clif Bolton for the No. 1 catching berth and Jesse Hill was to scramble with Fred Sington for the third outfield post, but there was a general raising of eyebrows when Griffith declared that Rookie Jimmie Wa'dell was to be given a real chance to oust Joe Kuhel at first base. Pitchers Face Real Job Fight. ‘‘VX’E'RE going to give Wasdell V every chance," commented Griff. •‘They say that he's a great looking ball player. I'm anxious to see him. If Dick Lanahan hadn’t hit him in the face with a pitched ball last year in the Southern Association I know that Wasdell would have been just about ready for the big leagues. Maybe he is now. I don't know, but we won't be long in finding out.” Among the pitchers in camp there is an air of tenseness, only slightly j alleviated by the prospect of Newsom not pitching for the Washingtons this year. Griffith has stated flatly j that he doesn’t need Newsom and has ventured an opinion that Joe Cascarella. Jimmy De Shong. Johnny Balveson, Pete Appleton, Eddie Linke and Dick Lanahan will wind up as the club's starting pitchers. “We ll ! need more than four starters,” said Griffith. “This sextet, while fairly sure of starting, by no means form the en tire slab staff. At least three more j Will be retained and ambitions flame i Within Monte Weaver, Harry Kelly, ! Ken Chase, Ray Phebus and Prank Peticolas. All of them cannot stay even with Newsom out. Not Sensational but Watch ’Em. 'T'HERE seems to be nothing sen sational about the Washington club this season, but it still is a team in the process of rebuilding and that always is interesting. A diamond j squad might be likened to a building. ! When incomplete it attracts only a passing glance. But when the steam shovels are through gnawing and riveting machines are through sing ing, however, it becomes a sight to behold. So it is with a ball team. Anyway they're off today, the 1937 Nationals. A year ago with prospects far less bright, they wound up a good fourth. This season you can write your own ticket. To repeat Clark Griffith's W'ords: "Worse teams than this club have won pennants." Maybe there is something in what he says. -• Pro Hockey Bt the Associated Press. International-American League.

THE delicate business of seeding teams for the annual Evening Star tournament for the Met ropolitan Washington inter scholastic basket ball championship will be done tonight in a meeting of coaches involved at The Star sports department, opening at 7:30 o'clock. Heretofore the team that drew the , Washington entry in the first round was as good as erased from the tour nament. But not so this time. Where formerly only four selected teams played in the event, the 1937 competi tion engages eight and for the first time the field is well balanced. No Sharp Favorite. rJ',HERE will be no sharp favorite when outstanding teams of the Capital proper, Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland move into action at Tech High on March 15. The rise this season of suburban schools and a slightly lowered standard of play in the Washington public high series have served to equalize things so far as the Metropolitan tournament is concerned and the struggle is expected to be exciting from start to finish, with the event shot through with nat ural rivalries. The entry of St. John’s College, which overwhelmed Gonzaga in sur prising style in the final game for the Catholic high championship of Wash- j ington Saturday night, tossed a spoonful of pepper into the basket ball stew. St. John's Real Threat. gT. JOHN'S, the first school outside of the public institutions to be admitted to the tournament from Washington, also adds to the prestige of the metropolitan title, for the Ca dets clearly are the class of the Catholic high field and play under the same conditions to which the District public high schools are re stricted. It is not unlikely that the two Washington public high entries will be seeded in opposite brackets«and the one that draws St. John’s is guar anteed trouble. The Cadets played like true champions in knocking off Gonzaga, 34 to 13, after dividing two games with the Purple by close scores, When the big clutch came.

"The competition this year ought to be peculiarly close because each of the ‘Big Four' has only one dependable singles player.” said Jones, who is making his first bid for the United States indoor singles championship at the 7th Regiment Armory.

B» the Associated Press. Baltimore. Marrh 1—The Johns Hopkins University of fered a challenge to high pressure college athletics today in the shape of a decision to eliminate all admission prices to sports events and neither pay nor accept guarantees for traveling teams. Effective next October 13. admission to home games on any of the Hop kins 13 sports schedules will be free: as soon as existing commitments are ab solved, athletic authorities announced, "the university will neither pay guar antees to visiting teams, nor will it accept guarantees when its teams play away from home.” ''Contests generally will be sched uled on a two-year home-and-home basis, the visiting team always paying it own traveling expenses." Dr. G. Wilson Shaffer, director of athletics, asserted. Not to Curtail Program. \VE DO not plan any reduction in our intercollegiate program." Dr. Shaffer continued. ‘ The only dif ference from the former method is that a budget established for the department of physical education and athletics will be broadened to include the expenses of intercollegiate com petition without counting on any problematical profit from gate receipts or guarantees." The formal announcement of the revolutionary change of policy said the university "in effect, has placed athletics at the level which they would occupy if in the realm of collegiate sports there were no such thing as a recruited foot bail team and no gold mine of gate receipts to be tapped." The Hopkins plan is described as the first in the United States to place modern college foot ball on a non commercial basis. Extension of Old Policy. pLIMINATION of paid admissions and guarantees was described by the university as a “logical extension of the athletic policy introduced at Hopkins several years ago." At that time, the announcement said, “the few existing athletic scholarships were abolished, athletics were brought under the control of the university and a strong program of intramural sports was introduced. ‘‘At the same time, the scope of intercollegiate program was expanded to include 13 sports instead of 6, th# number of students participating in this form of competition increasing in corresponding measure. • • • More than 85 per cent of the student body now engages in some form of athietic activity." D. C. Undisturbed Bv Hopkins' Act rTHE decision of Johns Hopkins to abolish admission charges to its foot ball games failed to dis turb local college officials or foot ball coaches today as they pointed to the Baltimore's school's lone gridiron victory last season and hinted such a record justifies the end. Dr. Clovd Heck Marvin, presi dent of George Washington Uni versity, summed up the move with a statement that "Johns Hopkins' record in foot ball just about ex plains everything—they have little to lose.” The so-called taint of commer cialism actually never has bothered Johns Hopkins to any great extent. Its decision to make no more guar antees to visiting teams will not affect American University simply because the Eagles never have re ceived a guarantee from Hopkins. land can win and my choice is Aus tralia. Likes Grant for U. S. Team. “’you see Australia, with Quist, probably has the best all-around amateur of the day. He's just as good at doubles as he is in singles, and I think Crawford, if the chips are down, really can produce one victory. “Don Budge, in my opinion is a little young to do the job alone, that is win two singles matches and share a doubles victory with Gene Mako. Personally, I'd give the other singles assignment to Bitsy Grant.” Jones played in England and on the Continent four years ago while at tending Cambridge. He attracted con siderable attention with his high-kick ing service, which last year reminded old-timers at Wimbledon of Ellsworth Vines and other power hitters among former amateurs.
