A jury hearing a suit invoving his insurance, declared he died either March 23 or 24. shortly after he was last heard from at sea in a Chinese juk, Sea Dragon hoping to sail from Honkong to San Francisco. Testimony was introduced to show that when Halliburton approached the international date line a typhoon ''wall ! waves 40 feet high" struck the vicinity. A search afterward revealed no trace of the junk. The verdict legally ended the career of one of America's most widely-read and well know adventurer- writers. Halliburton was 39. Born in Memphis and educated at Princton, he set out from New Orlean in 1921 on a career of adventures interrupted only by time out for writing and lecturing. Halliburton mainly wrote of acclti: adventures and often said hi.s mo: exciting and interesting experience were the ones people would not read about, which he consqueiitly never wrote.

That's even a better stunt than a publicity man could think up. A temperature of 13fi degrees above zero has been recorded in the northern Sahara desert, while one of 92 degrees below zero has been noted in northern Siberia. USED CA TO FILL OUR EMPTY USED CAR LOT NEW YORK -(./Pi— "Ono gnme don't win a series. The Yanks are no super ball club. They can be beaten and HI send Bucky Walter after them Thursday. It was "De-aeon" Bill McKechnie, ypeaking as .sole spokesman in bc'- lialf of hi.s Reds. He waved newspaper nu.'n away from the Cincinnati players, reminding the writers that he would do all the talking and cautioning photographers to take no pictures. It was sweltering hot in the Reds' dressing room and the bespectacled 52- year-old leader of tho Reds stripped clown to his white shorts and under- .'hirt before he began talking. 1-reviously be had shooed the writers out of the room, pleading for a five- miniite opportunity to talk to his play- j ers in private. "Both Ruffing and Derringer pitched a hell of a ball game," McKechnie began." The breaks won it for the Yank.s. We've won a Kit of them the same way and that's what put us into the championship. One game don't mean a thing. It's winning the four of them that counts." Questioned as to the wisdom of Wally Eerger':; throw to Froy at second base, instead of throwing directly to the plate to cut off Joe Gordon's i mi in '[be fifth inning, McKechnie blurted out: "That's one of those plays you don't anticipate. It may come up only 15 or 15 a year. If Berger had thrown to Lombard! instead of to second, there would have been no score. "I give the Yanks all the credit in the world. They played heads-up ball. But we're still here. Don't overlook that." Berger to Sidelines ' McKochnie said Berger, Cincinati'.s left fielder, may not get into the game Thursday because of his injured left fool. His big toe was injured by a fuul tip with an abscess forming that bad to be opened Wednesday. Berger played svilh the tip of hi.s shoe cut out to give the damaged toe more freedom. "Brce/er" Lombard!, the Red's big catcher, was raging mad when he .stunned into the dressing room. H ripped off his chest protector and hurled it in the air. Then he slummed down his mask, picked it up and' throw it across the room after the chest protector. All the while he was cursing and rmutihling to liimslf. He kicked liis trunk a couple of time.s and then flopped hhniiclf down on top of it. None of the Reels talked to each other, leaving all explaining to Ihei manager. Yanks Happy Over in the Yanks' dressing mom tin world's champions wore hilarious hap py. Joe McCarthy moved into hi private dressing room to receive con gratulation.s from Postmaster Genera James A. Farley mid from Gov. Herbert Lehman. Behind them trooped in Jimmy Johnson, the fight mana-| ger. to extend hi.s handshake an con- j gratulations. McCarthy gave great praise to both Red Ruffing, hi.s victorious pitcher and Paul Derringer, the vanquished. "Both pitched a careful, beautiful game. It was a question who would get the runs and we managed to get them." he said. 1 McCarthy also praised Art Fletcher, the Yankee coach at third base in waving Gordon home in the fifth vhcn he scored on Bcrger's throw to econd after Babe Dahlgren bad claubl- ed. "It was smart baseball," BMcCartby lid. "It was the smart thing to do.
