TInverase Of $10,000 Over Previous
Pay Sets New National League
Salary Record
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Jan. 8.--Rogers Horns-
by who came to the major leagues
eleven years ago with a paltry $500
price tag attached to him, today sign-
ed a two year contract with his new
employers, the New York Giants, at
an annual salary understood to be
$40,000, the highest in the National
Thi sum is ten thousand more than
Hornsby received for piloting the
Cardinals to their pennant in the
world's championship last year. This
is ten thousand dollars less than the
figure Hornsby demanded as manager
of the Cardinals and over which the
split resulted and caused him to be
released to the Giants for Frank
Frisch and Jimmy Ring.
Hornsby will captain the Giants
as well as play second bade for the
1927 and 1928 season. His position as
field leader, ranking next in authority
to his recent manager, McGraw, was
stipulated in the contract. It streugth-
ens the belief that Hornsby will suc-
ceed McGraw when the leader is ready
to release his reigns.
If the generally accepted figure,for
which Hornsby signed, is correct, the
new Giant infielder will receive more
than his manager, McGraw, and will
be next to Babe Ruth in the Thigh
salary rank of major league players.
McGraw's managerial contract is
understood to call for $35,000, but as
vice-president and stockholder in the
club, the leader profits to a much larg-
er figure. Ruth's salary is $55,000
for several years and his new con-
tract, starting with the 1927 season,
is expected to be even larger.S Bill
Carrigan, after ten years absence
from baseball, is reported to hae
been lured back to the helm of the
Red Sox by a $50,000 salary.
Hoppe Gains Billiard'
Championship After
Remarkable Playing
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, .Jan. 8.-The familiar,
~figure of Willie Hoppe held forth at
the top of the 18.2 balkline billiard!
world again today . in the glory of a
remarkable triumph.
Topped from the pinnacle two years
ago by Jake Schaefer of Chicago, the
39year-old veteran came back with a
brilliant finish to pull the mantle from
the shoulders of Eric Hagenlacher, i
defending title-holder, in a heart-
breaking final block sprint, 1,500 to
1,387. The match ended early today
after three night's play.
For five hours the two players last
night gave a masterful exhibition. It
was not a battle for spectacular strok-
ing. But for sensational runs and
high block averages, the match never
had been equalled here. Hagenlacher
fought to overcome the challengers'
160-point second block lead and Hop-
pe battled to hold on.
Only six innings were required by
Hoppe to complete his triumph, but
in those frames he crammed one of
his greatest displays of tenacity and
versatility in his 26 years as a star.
Twice Hagenlacher more than wiped
out the advantage which Hoppe had
piled up Thursday night with Mara-
thon spurts, and twice the veteran,
refusing to be shaken off, went out
and won back his lead to close finally
with a clinching cluster of 41 for the I
Hoppe regained a crown he had pre-
viously held over an almost unbroken

stretch of 17 years. Schaefer, who
dethroned him two years ago, lost and
won back the title with Edouard Hore-
mans of Belgium before finally suc-
cumbing to Hagenlacher less than a
year ago.
Hagenlacher turned in an average
of 109 2-5 for the nights play against
)83 2-6 for Hoppe, while the latter's
match average read 44 4-34 against
40 27-34 for Hagenlacher.

CHICAGO, Jan. 8.-Confronted with
the greatest problem of his baseball'

1917 scandal by Charles "Swede" IRis- I
berg and Chick Gandil, former Chi-
