AMATEUR BASKETBALL MEET AT HARLINGEN FRIDAY
Valley Cagera Have Made
Strong Showing In
• Special to The Herald)
HARLINGEN, Jan. 6— Repre
sentatives of all Valley towns
wishing to enter a Valley Amateur
Basketball league are requested
to attend a meeting to get under
way at the Harlingen city hall at
7:30 p. m. Friday
Demands for reorganization o!
the circuit which has operated for
the past three years have become
more and more insistent with
Harlingen. San Benito and Mer
cedes the me*: active cities.
Valley representatives have
made strong showings in the
state tournament for the past
three years. The Harlingen Meth
odists. featuring Jim Goddard and
Ralph Army Armstrong, cama
near a state championship one
year. They were beaten out in the
quarter-finals by the margin of
a couple of points.
Last year the McAllen Monitors
took out the Houston city cham
fuvis m the state tournament,
f; < Houston club was expected to
k. it a strong showing m the
tournament. ‘Long John” Bar
num. Geo. Vest, et al. proved too
much for the Houstonians.
All teams expecting to enter
the amateur circuit should have
a representative or proxy at the
F~4r1nv n ght meeting
Dour Oil Dobie ol Cornell may
have spoken even more than a
mouthful when he arose at the
coaches' meetings and urged a re
turn to simplicity in what is be
coming a very complicated game
Just betore the game between
Pitt and Notre Dame, which went
on record as being the classical
upset of the 1932 season. Hunk
Anderson announced that the
Notre Dame ball team had 154
plays ready to use against the
Panthers But those 154 plays
availed nothing. For all the pur
poses of scoring shown in that
game Notre Dame might as well
have had one formation, a bust oft
tackle, which was the most suc
cessful play the Irish ••ver had.
With 154 plays from which to
pick, including double and lateral
passes, fake bucks, spinners and
rtveraag, th: BUB to have for
quarterback is the wizened young
fellow with glasses who frequents
libraries and knows his Pliny.

It's Too Deep
Tile game may reach the point
where it is not only too deep for
the young men who are trying to
learn it. but a trifle too heavy for
the esteemed mentors themselves.
The idea of deceptgm has been
played with by so man} experts
that a young man has to bone up
on his diagrams and calculate time
and distance to the nth degree In
order to make a respectable showr
This was not so in Jim Thorpe s !

Schools Take Step
Two schools in the west, already
have taken the steps that Mr.
Dobip cries for. They are the Uni
versity of Arizona and the Okla
homa Aggies. In order to cut
4own scouting expenses. these
schools arc going to trade dia
grams of the plays they will use
against each other in 1933.
That should make football easy
for the most unscholarly black
smith on the souad.
The team* might go farther and
trade signals, so that when Half
back Horse Hyde hears the enemy's
numerals being called off. he can
look at his cuff on which the fig

American League Race
Likely to Tighten Up
BY WILLIAM HARRIEKiE
President. American League
CHICAGO. Jan. 0. -P>—A much
better balanced race is my forecast
, for 1933 in the American league. A
year ago. I predicted the Athletics
would have more competition than
during the previous three seasons.
They did In fact the Yankees won
the pennant by as great a margin
as the Athletics had been in the
habit of winning and a one-sided
race was the result.
Because of that one-team con
test. American league clubs have
made many player changes wnich
will, to best of my belief, result In
the Yankees being provided with
much stiffer competition than in
1932. If we had had a four oi five
club race last season, the Ameri
can league probabh would have
plaved to more people than in 1031
Now. with numerous change*
made m the rosters of the seven
clubs that finished behind New
York. 1 cannot sec anything but a
better battle for the pennant end
i that means increased attendance.
There is no doubt ol the Chicago
White Sox. for many years the out
standing pennant contender ot our
league, being restored to first divi
sion strength with the addition of
Outfielders Simmons and Haa^, and
Ttlnrd Baseman Dykes of Philadel
phia and Pitcher Durham Rhyne of
Breton. Chicago, also, is banking on
Pitcher Vic Frasier being restored
to health and able to pitch winning
While Philadelphia parted with
three star players. Connie Mack is
contident that he has in Cramer,
Coleman. Finney and Higgins four
young players capable of replacing
the men he sold to Chicago and
keeping his team high up in the
Washington made three deals
tended to make the Nationals
stronger contenders than they were
Iasi season. In Manush. Goslin and
Schulte, they will have one of the
hardest hitting outfields in the his
tory of our league
• Pres. Clark Griffith and Manager
| Cronin have also made change*
j in the Washington pitching staff,
adding two veteran southpaws in
Whitehill and Stewart in exchange
for Lloyd Brown. Fred Marberry and
Dick Coffrr.cn, with Crowder, Weav
er. Whitehill. Stewart. A1 Thomas
and McAffee, Washington will be
equipped with six starting pitchers.
The exchange of Whitehill for
Marberry and Fischer is expected to
aid Detroit a* well as Washington.
Both Marberry and Whitehill ap
parently needed a change in scen
ery. Stanley Harris is confident that
Marberry will deliver for him in De
troit as he did in Washington. De
troit also had some sensational
youngsters tr be developed this year
in Pitcher Rowe. Catcher Rieber
and Outfielder Fox of Beaumont
and Shortstop Owen of Newark.
Boston will profit by the deal
with Chicaro. The Red Sox added
four right hand hitters, who like
that short but high left field fence
in Boston t*> drive against. Right
now. it looks certain as if Outfiled
er Seeds ..nd Infielder Mulleavy, in
cluded .n that deal, would be in
stalled as regulars at Boston, with
a chance of Hodapp. former Cleve
land star, staging a comeback.
To get Goslin. Schulte and Stew
art of St. Louis. Washington had to
part with three stars. Outfielders
Carl Reynolds and Sam West and
I Pitcher Llojd Brown. In fact, the
Browns believe they got the uetter
of the deal.
Cleveland has another first base
man In Harley Boss, who had a
j spectacular season in the Southern
league last year; while from Toledo.
It obtained Hale who may crowd
Willie Kamm off third base, a splen
did young catcher m Pjtlak and at
least two promising young pitchers
in Bean and Wincgarner.
New York made no trades but did
purchase from Class A A league
j teams, three pitchers. Van Atta of
St. Paul. Deahong of Sacramento
and Brennan of Newark.
Your league president also
caught the lever and added two new
umpires to the official staff In Wil
liam Summers and Louis Kolls o:
the International league.

Frogs to Open
■ Special to The Herald*
FORT WORTH Jan. 6—With a
successful pre-season basketball
schedule of practice games behind
them, the Horned Frogs settled
down to work this week for thru
opening conference cage tilt with
S. M U. in Dallas Saturday night.
1 The Frogs lost only one of their
I pre-season games, that being to a
1 strong Kansas independent quintet.
They defeated several of the strong
est amateur teams in the state.
The brilliant showing of Slim
Kinzy in the early games thi^ sea
son has earned for him a regular
starting berth on the 33 Purple and
White five as pivot man Las' vear
when Ad Dietzel. Coach Schmidt s
contribution to tiie 1932 All-Amer
ican basketball team, was declared
ineligible, the center position was
left vacant. The Purple mentor v as
burdened with worries as to who
would be able to fill the shoes ol
the fall dutchman. So far this sea
son Kinzy has proven himself wor
thy of filling the vacant shoes Rich
ard Allison, an able understudy ol
Dietzel last year is improving fast
and is primed to give Kinzy a tight
race for the pivot position. Both
men are capable of playit.g a peat
