ST. LOUISNEXT YEAR
Tris Speaker May Appear In Uniform
Of Senators; Griffith Offers
inx Contract
CAN PLAY ANYWHERE
! {By Associated Press)
CHICAGO Jan. 29.-Washington
and St. Louis appear today to have
the lead in the contest for the serv-
ices of Tris Speaker and Ty Cobb.
Clark Griffith of the Senators de-
clared at Tampa that Speaker prom-
ised to give first consideration to a
Washington contract, while St. Louis
so far has made the most energetic
attempt to land Ty Cobb.
The provisions of the waiver rule,
so far as American leagpe club pri-
orities are concerned, have been laid
aside to permit these two stars to sign,
whatever they wish, William Harridge
j acting guarding of the league exe-
cutive officers said today.
Can Negotiate Own Terms
There is no chance, lowever, that
any National league club will be al-
lowed to sign them, so long as any
American leaguers desire their serv-
ices. With no price tags attached to
their conr.racts by their original club
owners, the two slugging outfielders
are expected to conclude profitable
terms for themselves.
IGriffith declined to reveal the
amount of his offer to Speaker, but
after a telephone conversation with
the latter at Phila'delphia, he an-
i "pounced that the former Cleveland
manager had promised to write him
concerning his proposal and that he
1 would have an announcement to make
I upon receipt of the letter.
Speaker And Mack Confer
Speaker was in conference yester-
day at Phil4,delphia, with Manager
Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Ath-
letics, and both emerged smiling, but
declined to discuss the visit other
than to say it was a social call.
"I am going to play baseball again
this summer," Speaker declared. "I
will consider all offers and then I will
accept the one which I believe to be
most favorable.'
Ottawa Senators seem to have a
cinch on the National Hockey League
title . The other teams are all bunch-
od elosely together with Boston sins
points behind the Senators.

BIG TEN BASKET
T n
BuSY AS WOLVERINES
Although Michigan is not slated to
F play a Confernce basketball game un-1
til Feb. 15, when Coach Mather's
quintet will engage Purdue on the lat-
ter's floor, other rig Ten teams will
see plenty of action from Feb. 5 on.
i On the latter date Indiana, who re-
cently succumbed to the Wolverines
*tBloomington, will have a chance to;
creep closer to the leaders when they
tackle Chicago on the Maroon's home
floor. The Hoosiers should have nol
trouble in winning this engagement,
for, although Norgren's team is re-
puted to be strong defe ively, the
attack of Indiana is expe ed to over-
come, any obstacle that Chicaga can
produce.
~ < Illinois, too, will be able to keep un-
' Illinicombortably close to the Wolverines
because of a contest with Minnesota
ron the same date. The Gopher quintet
has yet to show any form of winning,
basketball, and there is no apparent
reason why they should pull a sur-
prise at the expense of the Illini.
The third game on Feb. 5 will be
Ohio State at Iowa, and it is a crucial
contest for one of the teams will be
eliminated from any championship
{consideration.

Feb. 7 at Champaign, and Minnesota
I is doped to lose another at Indiana
at the same time.
On the following Saturday, the
1 Maroons journey to Madison, which
marks Wisconsin's return to ,basket-
ball after the examinations. Other
games on the same date are Illinois
at Iowa, Northwestern at Minnesota,
where the celler championship will
be fought out, and Purdue at Ohio
State.
It is improbable that any of these
games will have a bearing on the Con-
ference championship, unless it be the
Illinois-Iowa clash. If Iowa should
defeat Ohio, and then lose to Illinois,
the fight would narrow down to Mich-
igan, Wisconsin, and the Illini.
HUGGINS OPPOSES TRADE
NEW YORK, Jan. 29.-A proposal
