VINES SQUARES PRO NET SERIES STAGES RALLY IN LAST HALF Jobs with private employers were obtained for 54,984 persons In 1936 through the Indiana State Employment Service, a new high mark, Calvin F. Davis, state statistician for the service, has announced. The new record is an Increase of 8.797 jobs over 1935, It was said, nnd an increase of 17,210 over 1934. The service also made 44,553 placements on public works projects last year, as compared with 20,130 in 1935. RAISED NOTCH BOSTON. Mass., Jan. 18. (IV) IEW ORK, Jan. IS.

It was the American's third straight victory in his six pro starts against the Briton. Perry was much the steadier throughout the five sets, making ninety-seven errors against Vines's total of 110 but the lanky Califor-nian, who appeared in perfect health, piled up the impressive total of fifty-nine earned points, against thirty-nine, most of them with booming backhanders that went for placements. His terrific delivery which he had under control in all but four of his service games, provided him with thirteen aces during the match, which he gained by the scant margin of 153 points to 149.

Of the fourteen .major groups of manufacturing industries studied all but one showed pay roll gains and nine showed gains in employment from November to December. Tay Rolls Gain 33.8 Per Cent. , Composite indexes for all manufacturing groups, prepared by the) service, show factory employment 18.8 per cent above a year ago and factory pay rolls 33.8 per cent above. Indiana nonmanufacturing industries increased employment 6.2 per cent, pay rolls 5 per cent and man hours 4.6 per cent from November to December. Retail trade establishments, it was said, -ere largely responsible for the nonmanufacturing1 gains, with increases of 19.7 per cent in employment and 13.4 per cent in pay rolls. Reports from thirty-four department and general merchandising stores showed an increase of 49.6 per cer.t in employment from November to December. An Increase of 4.2 per cent In pep capita weekly earnings of Indiana factory workers from November to December brought earnings to $29.62 a week in December, an increase of 12.1 per cent over December, 1935.

Application cards on file now total 183,501, It was said, and approximately 10 per cent of the applicants are employed, but are seeking better positions through the service. Employment, pay rolls and man hours worked increased in Indiana in December, a preliminary tabulation of reports received by the employment service in co-operation with the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington showed. Reports were received from 2,263 manufacturing and nonmanufactur-Ing establishments with a total December employment of 255,069 persons. Show Gains In Month, Tay rolls gained 6.1 per cent, employment 2,6 per cent and man hours 2.5 per cent from November to December. Pay roll advances wero indicated ten times In 1036 and employment increased nine of tho twelve months. During December information on bonus and Christmas gift payments was collected, showing that 270 firms mado such payments to 59,5'JO employes with total paymonts exceeding $1,750,000. Reports from 865 manufacturing turned in a brilliant second-half performance at University Heights last night to register a 49-to-28 victory over Indiana State. The triumph was the seventh of the 1936-37 campaign for the Greyhounds, who have lost only one game. Kenneth Dorton and John Byers fired long shots soon after the opening of the hostilities to send Central away to a 4-to-0 lead. Robert Burton, Sycamore forward, broke away for a pair of under-basket attempts, however, and tied the score. Neither team was able to obtain much of an advantage during the remainder of the half. The lead changed hands four times and at the intermission the count was tied, 17 to 17. Greyhound Move Ahead. Indiana Central launched a fast passing game as the second half started and Everett Swank, Raymond Crowe and Joe Bohr hit from the field in rapid-fire order to put the Greyhounds in front. Central retained a commanding lead throughout the rest of the tilt. Bohr, who entered the game late In the first half, made six field goals to pace the second-period drive, most of his baskets being of the one-handed variety from near the foul circle. Burton led the Sycamore attack. Summary : Ind. Central (49). Ind. State (28). ly taken is far more important than nnisnea 7. HI seconds ahead of Cummings, had stopped only forty-eight seconds.

The ruling did not deprive Rose of "My dear, you're so light on your feet I'd hardly know you're with me!" set, put on a brilliant rally to break through Vines for 5-all. He then won the next two to square the match and was able to hold his own until the eleventh game of the final set, when a sporting gesture snapped his concentration and forced his downfall for the third time in a row.

Perry, however, thought it landed outside and deliberately double-faulted to go 40-15. This incident so upset Perry that Vines was able to put together five consecutive points to gain the service break, which put him into a 6-5 lead, and then he ran out the match on his own servico in the twelfth game.

The knowledge that this can happen keeps many an athlete going, no matter how dreary his surroundings may be.

I suppose the late John Joseph McGraw kicked more ball players up gation of tho seamnn that sho would recommend Immediate passage of a congressional resolution to suspend operation of tho Copnland-Bland law for six months. That law roqulros the pennant hopes or the Giants. Maybe the player ho wanted was nearing the end of the string and would be no good to him after that season. Well, that was all right with McGraw. He needed him right then and he got him, even if to get him he might have to give up a youngster of rare promise. A lot of good young ball players got away from McGraw in circumstances like that. But he won a lot of pennants and he very often got the promising youngsters back later on when they were more valuable than before because of the added experience. When McGraw wanted a player in a hurry, nothing stopped him. Maybe he didn't like the player or maybe the player had caused trouble for other managers. McGraw reached out and grabbed him just the same. Some of the best players he ever had players who jumped into the breach and won pennants for him were men for whom he had no use personally.
