Sports Writers Give Valuable
Player Award to Cronin;
Simmons, Gehrig Tie.
(Continued From Page 6)
sensational young pitcher. tied for
fifth, with 25 points.
Simmons was the choice of most
of the experts for first ranking,
being put at the top of the list by
four of the eight critics, but his
chances of winning the honor were
reduced by the nomination of Lefty
Grove and Mickey Cochrane by
other experts as the representa-
tives of the World's Champions.
Garners Most Points.
Cronin on the other hand, was
given top ranking by only one
wilter, but he was second on four
other, lists and placed once each
at fourth, fifth and sixth. The
points were figured on a basis of
eight for first place, seven. for sec-
ond, etc., as was done when the
American League conducted the
offcial contest.
The Washington shortstop's selec-
tion by the writers comes as some-
thing of a birthday gift. He will be
24 years old this Sunday, Odt. 12,
according to the baseball records.
Born in San Francisco, Cronin re-
ceived his first major league trial
with Pittsburgh in 1925. He re-
mained with the Pirates in a utility
role in'1925-26 before being released
to Kansas City. He was sold to
Washington in 1928 and became a
regular in 1929.
Cronin Bats .375.
Cronin was one of the chief fac-
tors in the surprising rush of the
Senators toward the top this year.
He is a sensational fielder and bat-
ted .375 .He scored 127 runs, col-
lected 203 hits, including 42 doubles
and 13 home runs, besides driving
in 119 runs and stealing 15 bases.

Indiana plays Oklahoma Aggies
with the Hoosiers doped to have
their hands full, the Aggies having
downed Iowa last week 7 to 0. In
so doing the Oklahoma school

flashed an excellent overhead
gme, and this should insure a
busy afternoon for Indiana.
Illinois, with one eye on the
struggle with Northwestern sched-
uled for next week, will entertain
Butler. Zuppke, although he has a
team composed mostly of sopho-
mores this year which is reputedly
what he likes to work with the best,
failed to show much against Iowa
State last Saturday, triumphing by
the narrow margin of 7 to 0. How-
ever the Suckers figure to improve
every week, and this week should
see a vast improvement in both at-
tack and defense. Zuppke can al-
ways be counted upon for a spec-
tacular team, and if he has
smoothed his attack the Illini will
take Butler into camp.
Iowa got off to an unfortunate
start last week in losing to Okla-
homa Aggies, but should have re-
covered sufficiently to beat Cen-
tenary. The authorities at the
Hawkeye school ruled most of the
returning stars ineligible, and Burt
Ingwerson was left with a shatter-
ed team. This looks like a lean
year for Iowa, but Centenary
should be one victim.
Having emerged successfully from
the inaugural battle on their long
and difficult schedule, Knute Roc-

game of the new stadium at South

Joe McCarthy
Former National League pilot
who recently left his post as man-
ager of the Chicago Cubs, is now
being considered by Col. Jacob Ru-
pert and his associates as a possible
successor to Bob Shawkey as leader
of the New York Yankees. He was
also under the consideration of the
Red Sox, but turned down their
offer because of pecuniary ruasgns,
as well as the fact that he could
not have a ready made team to
work with next season.
