When you go lo a football game they hope it ruins. What's more, they hope, you're so much in a hurry to gel there for the kick-off that you forget (o eat lunch. When he was 9 years- old. Louis Jacobs •.-tin-ted to sell peanuts for pending money. Ho continued to peiU lie goobers as a means of working his •v.-iy tl.rough high school and college. 'I uduy the brothers who are out of and continue to make their headquar- in Buffalo, conduct 105 concessions if major and minor league baseball parks, football stadia, race tracks, parks, arenas, and auditoriums, hand- peanuts, pop-corn, hot dogs, cushions, raincoats, and Ihe like. They iljo operate bars and rest u rants. Their yearly volume of business in lickels. dimes, and quarters runs into .< vcral million dollars. Much, of course, depends on the weather. You can't sell iced drinks when the temperature drops into the ow (ids. Nor can you get rid of your JMock of rain shields when the .stadium j i. bathed in .sunlight. It costs about $12,000 to >xi up i] )c stands lo serve the public at Pitt Stadium and the Jacohses have only six i.r ;:even Saturdays in which to gut this amount buck—plus their profit. .So efficient must their organization he- thai 70,000 persons must be taken care of in 15 minutes if necessary. 'I heir best concession for a single- event, so they say. is Churchill Downs. The day Ijefore the Kentucky Derby '.f last May, one of the brothers wen! to the bank to gel S25.UOO chainnged into nickels, dimes, and quarters. The money came unwrapped ami four cashiers spent Ihe entire night counting and wrapping the change. There are approximately 1500 em- ployes on the Jacobs slafl. but holiday ssuch us July Fourth and Decoration Day. bring the otal well above 10.000. Ihe brothers have made a study of fan. 1 :' habits. They know, for instance, that there- is a demand for pup-corn in the mid- west, but not in the east. It'.s hard to pedddle hot dogs in the south, but cushions go big beiow the Mason-Dixon lino, where people wear light clothes during the summer. Dallas customers conrutne 10 limey a.s much pop as those in St. Paul. Fiotball filberts are toughest-to sell becau.se of their rapl attention to the game. The best break the Jacobscs get at a football game is when it starts to rain in the third quarter. It it rains before tbt- hall it concluded, people are liable to duck under the .stands during the intermission and stay there. In mi" game at Fill Stadium last fall the Jacobs organi/ation sold 25,COO rain protectors in 15 minutes. • Bearing out once again the old saw which bus lo do with an ill wind.

LOUlS-(/P)—Somewhere there :ire two members of the Baseball Writers Association who would leave Joe UiMaggio of the New York Yankees off an all-star 1937 baseball team, and there are four writers who would pass up Joe Mtdwick of the St. Louis Cardinals. 'Ihe fact neither of the hard-hitting •ulfielders was u unanimous choice (.rented .some mild surprise about an ll-stur team named by 247 baseball experts and announced Sunday by the Sporting News.

Rooney's Luck MIAMI, Fla.-(AV—Art Rooney, the nuw "Pittsburgh Fhil," now minus hit praying partner, is not finding the Tropical park race track as easy as he did Empire City and Saratoga. U l: north, Rooney is reputed to have won §108,000 in one day betting the Siirulcga races when accompanied by a friend who prayed for him to win. He is said to have been that much ahead when his friend advised him to go home. "11 you don't," the friend is quoted a;; saying, "I'll pray against you.' Rooney stayed with the races and hit: friend went home, evidently keeping his word. Anyway, those who claim to know .say Rooney has lost heavily at the Florida track.

Hiiskcthall Minded NEW YORK-i/Pi-l he success of Minnesota's basketball teams the last two years lies in the fact that the stats finally is getting basketball-minded, in the opinion of Coach Dave MacMillan. MacMillan. a member of the original Celtics, experienced many lean years before the Gophers tied Illinois for the Big Ton championship last season. Now, however, he is receiving players coached by men who played for him in l.-is early days at Minnesota. Every member of the squad, with the excep- tion of Gordon Spear, is a native of the stale.T Spaar, a'lanky lad who could not make his high school team, hails from Montana.
