Ed (King Kong) Kelly, 1 to 0, for the state championship at Lnmnr Porter Field Monday night A crowd estimated at 3,000 looked on Ison outdid Kelly at his.own game. Underhanding his right-hand shots at three speeds, Charley probably turned in the greatest performance of his career, mowing down the Feltons as fast as they appeared at the plate He retired the Cafemen in order in every inning except the second and the sixth An error was responsible for a Fel- tonitc reaching first in the second and n.bose on balls and an error put two on in -the sixth. Just as it appeared that the game would g 0 into extra innings, Ed Baxley, released by the Feltons in mid- .sieiison, hit a screaming triple to left after one was out. Then Coppy Mc- Heynolds .rapped a tantalizing bounder to first. Tlie Felton first sackur pegged to the plate but the throw was lute and the ball game was over.

It looks as though Fred Waring would need a map, compass. and a native guide to find his way out of th"e rough at Shawnee-on-Delaware, Pa., where the orchestra leader was photographed in the qualifying round tor the Buckwood Inn Trophy, snake among the tubes and spent the next two hours gingerly getting rid of it. Where the snake came from not even Petty could guess. \ Starting Early for an Extra Point Too many football games are lost by the margin of a point after touchdown, so Bill Krywicfci buckles down to place-kicking early on Fordham Field, where the Rains became the first major college teain in the country to begin drills.

Coming Up Fast Dartmouth, Ohio State, Alabama and • RiceiLookGood toTulane's Grid Coach Lowell: (Red) Dawson Names the Teams He Thinks Will Be Outstanding- in. 1938—Sees Big Ten. Circuit Much Stronger This Season E. J. Harrison, former Little Rock, Ark., caddie, and .a comparative newcomer to the ranks .of professional golf, appears quite satisfied with his first round in the $10,000 Cleveland Open at Oakwodd Country Club, in which he tied for the lead with Byron Nelson with a score of 69. Approximately 120,000 known comets are included in the solar system. By LOWELL (RED; DAWSON Head Football Coach, Tulane University. With post time for the 1938 intercollegiate gridiron derby near, some two score football steeds carry some hopes of thundering into the November stretch with prospects of fame and glory at the finish. Geographically, all sections of the U. S. will provide favorites and dark horses, one of which will come from the field to win mythical national championship honors in a topsy-turvy climax. . <:., Prime favorites from the .east include the Dartmouth Indians, Harvard, Villanova, Fordham, Cornell and Holy Cross. Pittsburgh, with Goldberg to spark the Panthers again, may crash through with a big surprise. The Hanover Hillman, right now appear to be the class of the New' England field and I'd be tempted to name Villanova.as most likely to finish second with Cornell and Fordham about even for the third spot and Hoy Cross close behind. Outstanding Eastern players Will include such stars a? Bill McLeod, Dartmouth back; Wysocki, Villanova end; George Peck, a back,-Bill McKeever, tackle, and Brud Holland 1 , end, of Cornell; Bill Osmanski, Holy Cross fullback; and Luckman of Columbia, one of the outstanding pass chunkers of the country. I'l not be surprised if Osmanski is the standout back of the East this fall. In the Big Ten, Ohio State figures to be better than at any time in recent years. The Wildcats of Northwestern are better prepared and Minnesota can't be discounted. .The Bad • : gers of Wisconsin will probably be the most improved team in the -Western conference, but .Indiana, .must also be considered in any surprise possibility column. 'Names like to figure in the. headlines this fall from the Big Ten must include Howie Weiss, • Wisconsin fullback; Jack Ryan of Northwestern, halfback; Fred Trosko, Michigan half:.back:-Nile Kinnick,- Iowa's sensational sophomore .of last year; Harold; Van Every, triple threat halfback of the Gophers; Jimmy Rabb of Ohio: State; Marty Christiansen and Larry Buhler, Minnesota fullbacks; and Elmer Gedr eon, Wolverine end. Cornhuskers Look Sure Notre Dame's Fighting Irish will also be up to the usual high standard of play, while Nebraska's Cornhuskers may well be looked to for Bix Six leadership. The Pacific coast race, despit some warnings about Washington's Huskies, appears to boil down to a three-cornered dog fight between California, Stanford and Southern California. The Bears lost heavily in material last fall, and it is doubtful if they can climb back to the same peak this year. Stanford and Southern Caifornia both appear to be on the upgrade. If the Trojans can get by Alabama in their opening game, they'll be hard to head.

An operation >.recovered .the needle, rusty and. slightly bent. Walters can't remember when the needle stuck him. ithe country, Rice is a favorite but it's a. tradition that a champion never repeats in the Southwest -conference. The Owls seem to have everything including two great backs in Lain and Cordill. Yet, they must be wary of T.. C. U. and Arkansas, particularly. Watch L. S. U., Auburn Alabama, L. S. U. and Auburn appear most formiddable in the Southeastern conference. The Tide figures to bo; better :thaii last year, while the Bayou, Bengals expect to be stronger. •Vanderbilt is another picked in most quarters as a first division team, .while Georgia Tech, Tulane, Tennessee,'Mississippi State, Gie . Miss and Florida may. make it interesting for the leaders on several Saturdays. 'North Carolina and Duke should have things their own way in the Southern conference, although Clemson may be the'fly in the. ointment. It's almost a cinch, though in .naming the Tar Heels and.
