Several trunks full of toy brought along by the movie company have added greatly to the gaiety.

Their costumes were made for them n Hollywood, and were modeled there on 3-year-old Mila Zamrich, who is not only the same size as the famous children of the north, but resembles them closely. Careful measuremtnts forwarded to Hollywood for the costumes revealed that Marie still is the smallest of the five girls in every respect. Her glove siza is 2',2, while the others wgar 3. Her shoes are 9A, with Cecile and Annette taking 9'/2B, Emilie D'^A, and Yvonne 10B.

In great trunks the sest of identica costumes came tumbling off thg trair at Callander. Their first unpackin gave quick proof that the quints wil be more irrcsistable than ever in the fringed skirts, bolero jackets and "cow boy boots" of the western outfits. And the children themselves, with their quick eye for clothes and costume, burst into voluble French when the trunks were unpacked.

By 1IARIIY CRAYSON Spurts Editor, MiA Service Will Harridgc announces that American League in on record as ing in favor of a less lively ball. Hiirridgc intends to get his owners together during the world series, and dig into the subject with the manufacturers. Practically everybody in both major leagues agrees that something should bo done to bring about more balance between pitching and batting. Home runs are much too cheap. Many trace this year's epidemic of injured and sore arms—those of the Deans, Schoolboy Rowc, Lefty Grove. Tommy Bridges, Carl Hubbcll, Bob Feller, Van Lingle Mungo, Johnny Allen, Hal Schumacher, Red Lucas, Bob Klingcr, Jack Wilson, and some more—to the fact that the jack-rabbit pill makes it compulsory for pitchers to bear down at all times. Every hall dealt is a potential home run. The National League had a different cover put on the pellet this season, but all it did was make the ball harder to handle, according to the pitchers. Everything has been clone for the itter, little or nothing for the pitcher. Street Favors Spithall Gabby Street of the St. Louis Browns is in favor of the return of he spitball. "Besides having the advantage of he lively ball, the batter now has shortened distances to- the fences," re- 7iark.s the Old Sarge. "I know pitchers who have been in the majors for seven or eight years without develop- ng a good curve. Any strong young 'ellow can learn how to throw and control the spittcr in a very short Whitlow Wyatt traces arm injuries to trick deliveries. This Georgia farmer, sold by Milwaukee to Broklyn, has been in professional baseball for eight years, but admits that he did not learn how to pitch or take care of his soupcr until last season. Wyatt advises young pitchers to concentrate on a natural delivery, on the fast ball, the curve, a change of pace and control, and forget about screwballs and such. He points out tha trick deliveries require such difficul twists that eventually they lead to in juries. He has suffered some of the pitching injuries of which he speaks. Careful, methodical trcatcment fixed up his arm. Must Follow Through 'Young pitchers must work on the perfect follow through," asserts Wyatt. "They should never let the ball leave the hand near or around the car. They should always let it leave the hand after the full sweep of the arm. That is one of the big secrets of control. "They should also reVnember that ;:ll deliveries are gripped the same PHILADELPHIA—While many men lave dreamed of robots that could >e made to do the work of man, few lave succeeded in creating n mechanical marvel that can compare with the lainty little French damsel who sits nil day in the Franklin Institute here and produces delicately-lined verses n French and English as well us exotic little drawings. This wonderful doll is the creation, not of a twentieth century inventor who has the ben fits of the industrial age to draw from, but of a French inventor named Mtiilliirdet, who was famous for his mechanical devices about 200 years ago. Alone in his laboratory he concoted this complicated mechanism which works entirely by cams, pinions and cones to produce writing and drawing. Somehow this figure came into the possession of a Philadolphiaii, Mr. John Pcnn Brock. After Mr. Brock's dculh, his grandchildren, Miss Alice G. Brock and Henry G. Brock, presented it to the Franklin Institute. At its presentation, however, the figure was not in running order. I had been seriously damaged by twc fires. The hands were gone; the heat remained on a spindle. What is more although Maillardct's figure was a bo> doll, the Intsituto staff re-created thi figure in the form of a girl doll. I took the late HaLscy Roberts, the In stitutc's head mechanic, nine month of steady work in the Institute's la boratorics, to put together the mas of springs and wires and pinions anc coils to make it run. Today the dol is dressed in a black silk taffeta dress, which is edged with lace and adorned with black velvet ribbons, and she wears upon her head a taffeta bonnet to match her dress. The entire workings of the doll are automatic. After winding, her cams and pinions start revolving and she goes through the lifelike processes of writing and drawing. Her hand, for instance, moves in three dimensions and is conarolled by three sets of cams mounted on one shaft. The up-and- down motions arc affected by cams that have very slight eccentric projections, while the other movements which arc larger, arc controlled by cones of greater deviations from circular form. The head and eyes are moved by cones. It takes this doll three minutes to produces each "masterpiece." She even simulates human emotions while writing. As .she writes or draws, her head bends realistically over her work he shakes her head cither in npprov- 1 of what she is doing or in vexation; he does not forget to clot her i's or ross her I's. At Ihe end of her task, he looks up with a happy expression. The drawings which the doll makes nclude a Spanish galleon, Cupid in IMiiliulclphia's wonder doll (aliovu) sketches a Spanish galleon (below) way. The only variation comes in the delivery of the slow pitch, when the grip is lessened to obtain the slower spin." Wyatt advises young pitchers lo grip the ball across the seams because it lets them put on greater spin. He says that another common fault of pitchers is loafing in the off-season. Whitlow Wyatt is returning to the majors a wiser and better pitcher. his chariot and Cupid throwing his love darts. The English verse reads: Unerring is my hiind thu small May I not add with truth I do my best to please you all Encnui'ue then my Youth. AUCTION DAY SPECIALS SHOP AT PENNEY'S AND SAVE.
