By RICHARD McCANN NGA Service Sports Writer Poor Charlie Dressen, who said he might finish first this year, was right— except for the tense. As things turned out, he was finished first. Charlie, it seems, made the age-old mistake of going in, pounding on the desk, and asking the boss just wherein-ell he stood. He found out. He stands in the breadline, looking for a job. Of course, it won't be long before he'll be having some company, but there won't be as many major league managers fired as was expected a few months back. You see, the Brooklyns surprised everybody, including the insumbent himself, by 'giving Burleigh Grimes another year; Charley Grimm was given another contract by the Chicago Cubs; and there's talk now that Mr. Pie Traynor's goose will not be put on the stove for one more season at least Two months ago the future of these fellows as managers of their respective clubs was about at bright as Isidore Abraham Finkelstein's in Berlin.

And they're still saying, as usual, that Steve O'Neill's job at Cleveland s no more permanent than a wave. And there is a strong possibility of Ossie Bluege, veteran infielder, replacing Bucky Harris in Washington. There is absolutely no hope for Wilson in Philadelphia. They may love heir brothers there—but not Wilson. Seems the management the other day came right out and arrested, indicted, tried, and condemned Jimmy in a single sentence for the Phillies' phlop. "The material," an official announcement said, "is there if Manager Wilson can only bring it out." But if Jimmy is given his involuntary resignation as manager of the Phillies he won't be out of work for long. Some of the Cincinnati newspaper boys think that he will be hired as Dressen's successor. Five others may get the same job. Catcher Virgil (Spud) Davis or Chick Hafey, veteran outfielder, may be elevated to the post; Gabby Hartnett may be obtained by trade from the Cubs; or then again General Manager Warren C. Giles may reach down into the minors and come up with either Walter (Rabbit) Maranville, who has done a fine job as manager of the Montreal Royals, or Frank (Lefty) O'Doul, who has been developing major leaguers out at San Francisco. Lefty and Rablt Long for Big Show 1 Frisco is home to O'Doul, but the minors aren't He longs for the bigtime and would leap at any major league offer. Ditto for the Rabbit. Boston Town seems to be the best spot for either of these two colorful, deserving gentlemen. O'Doul, because he's Irish, and Maranville, because of his gallant service with the old Braves, would be acclaimed up in the Massachusetts Bay country should a successor for Bill McKechnie be needed. And it does look as though Bill will go to Cleveland to take over Steve O'Neill's thankless job despite the fact that the Indians' early-season collapse wasn't Steve's fault and also despite the late-season spurt which has al- ley-opped them into a fight for third pl?'.e. Cleveland's just in a mood for a new manager, that's all. But whatever happens, the O'Doul- Maranville entry is a 1-10, out, out shot to get one of the mujor league jobs which will be open after the world Fort Worth Takes Play-OffSeries Will Represent the Texas League in Dixie Series Play OKLAHOMA CITY. — (IP) — Fort Worth's Cats took the Texas League pennant bnck to Texas for the first time since 1934 Sunday whipping the Oklahoma City Indians, 2 to 1, in a thrilling 12 inning final Shaughnessy playoff game. Jerry Moore's double in the first half of the twelfth inning sent Manager Peel home with the winning run of the exciting game played under protest by the Indian skipper, Jim Kessey. The Indians, humbled by the brilliant four-hit pitching of Big Ed Solway, a stropping righthand youngster, protested a decision at third base made by Umpire Frank Coe in the eighth inhing. Peel's single which started the Fort Worth rally in the final frame broke up a tight pitching bottle between Selway and Jack Brillheart, the Indian southpaw nee who yielded eight hits over 11 1-3 innings. Ash Hillin, who beat the Cats in Fort Worth Saturday night, relieved Brillhenrt. Moore crashed his game winning double off of Hillin's fast one. Brillheart was charged with the loss. 735.

Travelers Defeat Crax Again, 7 to 2 One More for Pebs Would Take Shaughnessy Play-Off ATLANTA. —(yp>—The Litle Rock Travelers, Southern Association pennant winners, blasted Altanta 7 to 2 Sunday with a five run attack in the ninth inning for their third straight victory in the Shaughnessy playoff. Atlanta fielded raggerlly behind Leonard who kept the visitors fairly well under control until the ninth. Beckman relieved him too late to help, the sitaution much. The Crackers' made four errors. The Travelers were dangerous throughout the game and had 16 hits to their credit when it was all over. Little Rock replaced Dickman, the starting pitcher with Porter in the fifth and then sent in Midkiff in tt\e eighth. The Crackers totaled only seven hits. Atlanta, which finished in third place in the regular season, entered the playoff by defeating Memphis, the second place team, while Little Rock beat oxit New Orleans. The Crackers won their first game with Little Rock but haven't been able to take one since. One more victory would put the Travelers in the Dixie series against Forth Worth, winners of the Texas League playoff.

Tackles are scarce on the Arkansas campus this year and Lalman and Stallings may find it necessary to be Frisch Again to Be Cardinal Manager Salary Terms of One-Year Contract Are Not Disclosed 'ST. LOUIS. — (/Pi — President Sam Breadon of the St. Louis Cardinals announced Sunday the signing of Frankie Frisch as 1938 manager of the Redbirds. Salary terms of the one-year contract were not disclosed, but the amount was believed to be an increase over Frisch's 1937 contract. Announcement of the signing followed a short session between Breadon and Cards' pilot prior to the first game of a double-header with the Chicago Cubs. "60-minute men," as was Cliff Van Sickle last year. Both of the Razorbacks' starting tackles hail from McAlester, Oklahoma. Stallings tips the scales at 195 pounds, while Lalman is 15 pounds heavier. Both are enrolled in the college of education and are planning coaching careers after their graduation. Lalman is a senior and Stallings a junior. Lalman has the added distinction of being the only married man on the 1937 Arkansas team. Insect eggs vary in hatching time from one day, in the blow-fly, to nine months, in locusts. HOLD EVERYTHING! By Clyde Lewis WAU_PAP£R OEPT - Unemployment Tax 3 Per Cent in 1938 2 Per Cent This Year, Paid by Employers, to Be 3 Next Year KANSAS CITY, Mo.—States comprising Region IX of the Social Security Board-Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas—arc remarkably similar in respect to their unemployment compensation laws, Ed McDonald, Regional Director said Monday. McDonald said a complete analysis of all unemployment compensation laws has just been prepared by the Social Security Board giving significant provisions of all state laws in such form that comparison is easy. The unemployment compensation laws of the four states in Region IX are of the pooled fund type with a merit rating for employers having few lay-offs. As to size of firm affected, Arkansas applies it law to employers of one or more in 20 weeks in a year, while Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma apply it to employers of 8 or more in 20 weeks. Financial contributions of the employer arc the same in all four states—* 1.8 per cent in 19117 and 2.7 per cent in 1938. The federal tax in 1937 is 2 par cent and m ^38, 2 P er cent, but the state tax paid by an eployer is credited against the federal tax. Employes make no contributions, therefore, there is no payroll deduct- ion as under the old-age benefits provisions of the Act. States in the union where workers do contribute to the unemployment compensation fund are Alabama, California, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Rhode Island. In Region IX Oklahoma's law is the first to go into full effect—payment of benefits beginning December, 193S. In Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri payments of benefits will begin in January, 1939. Benefit provisions are similar bu are expressed differently. In Kansas and Missouri the weekly maximum is 4 per cent of earnings in the previous quarter; in Oklahoma and Arkansas 50 per cent of the weekly wage, with a maximum in all four states oi ?15 per week. Arkansas has a weekly minimum of $5. or 75 per cent of the weekly wage, Kansas and Missouri $5 or G per cent of the total wage in the previous quarter; Oklahoma $8 or 75 par cent of the weekly wage, whichever is the lower. McDonald pointed out that the unemployment compensation laws are administered directly by the states and not by the Federal government as in the case of Federal Old-Age benefits. The state acts must be approved jy the Socjal Security Board. The unemployment compensation prov- sions of the Social Security act provide that all employers of eight or more shall contribute but the states may go below that limit if they wish. Mr. McDonald explained differences n the two taxes as follaws: Old-Age benefits tax—Applies to all employers of one or more in coverejj employments. Tax applies up to ?3,000 per year for each employe. Wages after age 65 not included. Employes taxes same amount as employer. Unemployment compensation tax- Applies to employers of eight or more in covered employments in Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. In Arkansas, state law makes it applicable to employers of one or more. Tax applies to all wages and salaries regardless of amount or age. Employes bear no part of the tax in the states in Region IX. Giants Win, Move Closer to Pennant Ninth-Inning Homer' Give's New York 4 to 3 Win Over Dodgers NEW YORK-GH')— A ninth-inning homer by Lou Chiozza gave the Giants a <Uto-3 decision over Brooklyn Sunday and made it appear close to impossible for the second-place Cubs to catch them in the National League pennant race. The Ginnts need only little better than a .500 'performance in Iheir 11 remaining games to retain the pennant. . ' Chiozzn's payoff wallop, before 26,044 paying customers, broke up n game in Which the Giants hnd come from bo- hind with n three-run rally in tho seventh inning. Shoring the laurels with Chiozza was ' Cliff Melton, called on for relief with the score tied and two out in the eighth inning. He pitched hitless ball tho rest of the way and was credited with r:is nineteenth victory. Waito Hoyt, who started for tho Dodgers, had everything under control through the first six innings. While he pitched shutout ball, his mates staked him to n run off Hal Schumacher, Giant starter, in the fourth on Heinic Manush's-triple and Cookie Lavngetto's single, and another in the first of the seventh on a pair of singles and Mel Ott's error. But Hoyt blew, up in the seventh as the Giants clubbed out four hits for three runs, two scoring on a pinch-double by Sam Leslie. The Dodgers tied it up again in the eighth when Don Brcnnan, who relieved Schumacher, wild-pitched arun across and set the singe for Chiozza to n the game in the ninth at the expense of Fred Frnnkhouse.
