STANDINGS Southern Association Ott Believes in Signs On Fences; Joe DiMaggio Aims at .400 Hitting Ry IIAnilY PtUAYSON NRA Service Sports Editor NKW YORK-Out fielder* have to their fences well. Knowledge filings finest know of walls is one of (lie many that make Joe DiMaqgio (be flychascr in Ihe majors. Mel OK plays balls off the tricky right field barrier of (lie Polo Grounds according to where they bit on the lettering of a sign. Once (he lettering was changed and it. look the Louisiana Larruper weeks to ascertain the now angle*. Another nulfieldinj! quality of DiMaggio and Oil il their apparent lack of fear of crashing into a wall. "Them is nothing on my mind bnl Ihe catch when I go after a ball," says DiMaggio. "I always know ju«l about how far I am standing from a wall. Consequently when I have to run back and keep looking at (he ball 1 always know when I have to start thinking about the fence. Sometimes I go far back and the ball without even thinking about the fence. "I knew I was pretty far from the concrete wall in dead center field when Hank Greenberg came to bat on OIK; occasion this season, so when he hit (lio hall I just turned my back to the infield and ran as fast as I could. .While still running I looked over my shoulder for the and kepi running. I caught it abonl 10 feet from the fence." DiMiiggio Fooled on Hall Just Once This Season DiMaggio asserts that ho has been fooled on a ball just once this year, it was on a drive from (lie bat of'Jeff Heath of Cleveland in Yankee Stadium. "I was playing for Heath just about where I was when Greebei'K hit his," explains (he Yankee luminary. "Greenberg's ball came down while I wa:> running after it, but Heath's didn'l. It kept sailing and I kept running. That's what fooled me. Heath's ball :an ieil farlher (ban I thought il would. "I hit (he fence just as 1 caught it. Fortunately I hit the wooden section, not (he concrete part. That ball wns hit a liltlo harder than Greenberg's. Anyhow, Hank's was easier to.judge," DiMaggio labs low line drives that keep sinking rapidly when hit straight at an outfielder as the hardest to snag. "You have to tear in quickly for them with your bands close to the ground," 'ie points out. "As for the catch, you ither do or you don't." Fenway Pnrlt Presents' Most ' ' Difficult Field The most difficult center field for DiMaggio and his tremendous stride is Fenway Park, Boston. The field lias a slope to it and there is a corner Unit has lo be kept in mind all the time. Baseballs carom cru/ily off Fenway Park fences. DiMaggio expects Charley Keller, his young teammate from the University of Maryland, to give him the stiffcst scrap for the major league batting championship in 1940. DiMaggio lias had to hit around .5000 recently to outbat Keller. "Keller going to bat right in front of me has been an inspiration," he smiles. DiMaggio's current ambition is lo bo Ihe first Yankee to bat .400 for a season. That would bo quite an honor considering Ihe fact that a lot of fair country swatters, including George Herman Ruth and Henry Louis Gehrig, have taken uniforms. Present indications are that Joe DeMaggio will join the .400 in October. No ball player would wear this added luurel more gracefully than the big Italian lad with the rhythmic swing. cuts in New York Clubs iv. Memphis 83 ChnUnoogn Nashville .. Atlanta Knoxville ....

Football in Ihe south should hil a high peak as (lie balance of power lilts a little mure evenly both in the Southeastern and Southern Conferences. Tennessee, defending champion . of the former circuit, has two dangerous contenders to beat off in Tulane and Alabama. Duke, kingpin of the Southern Conference, .should experience greater competition than ever before from ils neighboring rival, North Carolina. The Vols lost Bowdcn Wyatt and George Gunter. regular ends, but there damage due to graduation ceases. All-American George Cafegu, Bob Fo.xx, Sam Bartholomew and Len Coffman are the same quartet of ball- luggers which ate up ground a year ago. The center trio of Jim Hike i Bob Suffridge and Ed Molinski might be called (he toughest in the land. Only Three Regulars Lost at Tulane Red Dau'son also is exceptionally well fixed at Tulane. Only three regulars were lost. Twenty Icltcrmen return. Paul Krou- ger, veteran quarterback, and Buddy Banker, younger brother of the illustrious Billy, spark (he attack. Two All-America possibil^.ies—Bill Kir- chcm. tackle, and Ralph Wen/.cl. end- head things up from. Alabama lost Joe Kilgrow and Charley Hilm among others, but Frank Thomas will have the Crimson Tide at full flood if he can develop a little aid for the brilliant Herky Mo.sley. The line averages close lo 200 pounds. Auburn, with plenty of veleran backfield materal on hand t will be dangerous if Jack Meagher can replace serious line losses. Allyn McKeen, starling in new at Mississippi State, will be rebuilding with none to rusey prospects. Mississippi lost Parker Hall but comes up with a stronger line than it had a wear ago. Sophomore Merle Hapes, (bird of three great brothers from California, may supply a punch. Ramlilin' Wreck in Need if Repairs- Wallace Bulls, another new face in Dixie coaching circles, is fortunate in having backs like Vassa Cale and Jim Fordham at Georgia.

Ken Kavanaugh. pass-snatching end, is the only brillant spot, in ibe Louisiana State line and Bernie Moore is beset by a major backfield problem. Vanderbilt has veteran backfield strength but a somewhat green line. Kentucky seems to be long on quantity but a little short on quality.

Mrs White: So many of the letters that I get from mothers this summer deal with neighborhood problems so I am answering yours in the hope il may help others. You explain the situation of your 11-year-old boy very clearly, and let me say, his experience is duplicated all over the country. To review it briefly: Buddy has been practically boycotted by the crowd because' of something that happened before the close of the school year. He was blamed .'for something you say he did not do, and you found the others shunning him. You spoke to several mothers about the unfairness of it 'all, and that only made matters worse. I am taking it for granted that you are correctly informed about Buddy's innoneence. At any rate, as most boys get into hot water at one time or another, the offense could not have been .serious enough to make the crowd turn on him, without cause. The ringleader, you write, has never been a friend of Buddy's.

No one here, of course, has anj exact knowledge of the naval plans of either side and the predictions above made are assumptions based on strategic considerations and knowledge of (he general picture. It is not known here where Gpr- m'muny's fleet it—whether in the Baltic or the North sea—nor is it known whether any German cruisers 01 pocket battleships are so situated as to be able to slip out and become roving commerce destroyers, a la the Emden. Possibly the sinking of the Athenia points the way this phase of the war will go. The one thing the experts here feel pretty sure of is that there won't be a real clash between (he rival fleets— principally, as they see it, because it would be suicide for the Germans to come out and suicide for the British 1" so in.

If Buddy could work back into the good graces of- the gang through his own wits, it would mean a great victory for him. There is nothing for man or boy like winning over enemies on his own responsibility. But if he cannot do this, or is un- nce there your up other friends, or just playing alone. is no heart use of your, eating, out by watching him take Crowds AJ-C Hard to Buck We mothers are great people to set up a plan for our children. We say, "Johnny must be popular in a certain crowd or he is a failure." That is the shortest cut to misery that I know. Many children are happier out. of a crowd. They cannot adjust themselves to a lot of personalities at one time. They may be far more miserable in a gang than out of it. What such a child will feel, however, is that he is hurting us by being at large, so to speak. But about the crowd. If they really are persecuting Bud and hectoring him. and he won't fight back now, being trained otherwise, I should cer tainly forbid all contact. Either that or move. Sincerely yours, Olive Roberts Barton . arty is in fact an organized, fully-instructed agent in the United States of the Russian government. Chairman Dies says 'the committee has in readiness at least 25 witnesses, including a number of "high-ranking ex-party people,'-' Through their sworn testimony, the committee expects to demonstrate—that the party comes under the law requiring foreign propaganda agents to register in this country with the Department of State. "I think we'll gel enough evidence to justify the government in holding them to strict accountability as a foreign espionage agency," Dies says. "Since the Russian government joined hands with Hitler we've got a much better chance to get the government to help us. Previously I used to encounter a good deal of sympathy for. Russia among people in key positions here, but those people are beginning to feel differently now.'' Want Bund to Register Chairman Dies and oilier members of the committee are convinced they will have little difficulty in proving their case. They expect to be able to present the same sort of proof in regard to the German-American Bund which they say should also be compelled to register. To date the Department of Justice is maintaining an air of interested inactivity in this matter. If definite proof can be-dug up by the Dies committee, the department would move swiftly to force the party—or the Bund —to register. Refusal to obey the law would render leaders of an organization liable to fines of. 51000 and prison terms of two years, / Committee members believe that if the Communist Party could be compelled to register it would be almost completely crippled as far as its activities in this country are concerned. They predict that such organizations as the American League for Peace and Democracy, which are not strictly Communist, organizations but in whose activities the party has played a leading role, would draw completely away from the party; that the "united' front" of leftirt and labor groups which the party has worked to build up would collapse; and that the left-wing group in the government service would be unable any longer to show any friendship for the Communists. Dies Will Call Professors Meanwhile, the Dies committee also proposes to undertake a continuing exercise in propaganda analysis. Chairman Dies plans to call as a committee witness Prof. Harold D. Lasswell of Yale to tell the committee all about the technique of foreign propaganda. Madagascar is the fifth largest of the islands of the world, with an area ot 228.000 square miles.
