Southpaw; Rett Of

BY JOE SNYDER
PITTSBURGH, Jan. 4.
Skipper George Gibson, of the
Pirates of Pittsburgh, today scan
ned the baseball horizon lor a
aouthpaw siege-gun to help carry
his 1933 campaign.
Bagging of Frrdd*e Landsirom
from the New York Giants, so the
followers say, makes the Pirates
formidable contenders in next
seasons bailie, but the lighting
chief wants more strength in a
Frankly, old Gibby really isn't
particular about whether he lands
a sie/r-gun of southpaw or or
thod ox calibre so long as the fir
ing line is strengthened, though,
If two were ava lable the left
hander would be preferred. He
wants a pitcher of tested ability,
be hu name Halloran. Root. Huu
bell. Brandt or some one else.
Therein, lies the only visible
storm cloud over the Pirate sky.
Gibby plans to shape the cam
paign. anyway, with his other
pitching guns. Sure tonic. Kremer,
French. Melne. Harris, Chagnon
Swift. Ood, Smith and perhaps,
Brame. The latter, hard hitting
Kentucky pitcher, was of doubt
ful value last season and he may
be used in trade talk along witn

Trades Should Improve
National, Heydler Says
By JOHN A. HEYDLFR
(President, National Leaguei
NEW YORK Jan. 4. <A»>—There
has been no off-season in a quar- j
ter of a century where there have
been so many changes in the line
ups of National league clubs as this
winter. I regard this change as
helpful to the league. It tends to
us a be” nice of play
ing strength and arouses more in
A notable feature of league prog
ress in recent years has been the
strengthening of our habitual sec
ond division teams. The extent to
which this process has reached may
be best m t forth by the fact that
New York and St. Louis both fin
ished in the second division after
having been generally picked by
most of the critics to fight for the
pennant in 1932. On the other
hand. Philadelphia and Boston
were fighting for the flag up to
mid-season and the former club
climbed into the first division for
the first time in fifteen years.
The many trades smre the close
of the season have helped all of
our club. We hould have the
closest and hardest race next year
that we have ever had in league
Chicago the winner last season
has added the batting power of I
Babe Herman. Pittsburgh will have
Lmdstrom and also the increased
value of her sensational young m
. fielders of last season.
Brooklyn will be helped by Benge
and Philadelphia by Finn. Boston
will have Worthington back next
season, and has added two Infield
ers of promise from the coast lea
rup. New York has made many
changes in the disappointing team
of 1932, and with Jackson back in
the game. Davis in the outfield
and the Starr-Mancuso battery the
giants ought to be more formidable.
The Cincinnati Reds have made
determined effort to improve the
club. They have added many new
players, notably Bottomley of St.
Louis and may be expected to make
a fight to improve their position.
Major league, as well as minor
league, baseball has made, and
will continue to make, the adjust
ments necessary to meet conditions,
and so we welcome 1933 with new
hope and renewed courage.
