National League Pirates Hammer 5 Homers to Win Set New Slugging Record by Walloping Giants, 7 to 2 NEW YORK.—(/P)—The Pittsburgh Pirates set a season slugging record for the big leagues Thursday by walloping five hor.iers as they trampled the Giants 7 to 2, lo climb Ihreo full games in fronl of the National League pennanl race. The defeat dropped the Giants into fourth place, half a game back of the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds and the Chicago Cubs, in second' place, were both idle Thursday. Far 'different from Ihe team that was "pressing" so hard it dropped a doubleheader to the same opponents Wednesday, the Bucs wheeled out their big guns right from the start Thursday, continued swinging from their heels all the way, and accounted for six of their seven runs on homers. Paul Waner whacked two into the right field stands,. Brother Lloyd, Pep Young and Johnnie Rizzo connected for one each. It was the 19th of the year for R/.7.0. Jim Tobin muffled Terrible Terry's Terriers with seven hits in chalking up his 13th win of the season. Tobin had a hand in putting a rocord-equlling note in the books, when he hit Mel O'U three times with pitched balls. This deadlocks the modern National League mark set when Brooklyn pitchers hit Roy Evans ol the St. Louis Cardinals with three pitches back in 1910.

CHICAGO, 111.—Making the most of two costly errors by the opposition, the Cincinnati (C.) Pohlars nosed out the Internatonal Harvesters of Little Rock, Arkansas champions, 2 to 1, for the international softball championship here Friday night. A crowd estimated at 12,000 watched the two star teams in action under unfavorable conditions. The diamond was heavy because of recent rains and a chilly wind whipped off the lake as the thermometer dropped to 55 degrees. In defeating the famous Ed (King Kong) Kelly of the Harvesters, Clyde Kirkendall held the Arkansans to four lifts. He fanned seven and retired the side on strikeouts in the third. Kelly also pitched four-hit ball and fanned Ihree. Kelly was responsible for the Harvesters' only score in the fourth. King Kong opened the inning with a triple. Howard Hughes fanned but Kelly scored as LeMay grounded out. Cincinnati tied the score in the same inning when Mel Voss beat uot a slow roller to Kelly. Art McGuff bunted and was safe when Ike Pi-ice, fielding the ball, hit McGuff in the back with Voss taking second. Sonnj' Kappner sacrificed. Then Bill Curry flied to Eel Baxey, Voss scoring after the catch. The Ohions won it in the sixth. With one away, Bunny Miller doubled off the right field seals for a ground- rule double. He took third as Kelly threw out Voss. McGuff was safe when Kelly threw his grounded into right Tennis Deadline Extended 1 Day Entry List Will Close at 3 o'Clock Sunday Afternoon The deadline for entering the Southwest Arkansas tennis tournament has been extended one day to 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon, in order to accommodate late entries.

Pro Experience NEW YORK—Steve Owen, coach of the New York Giants of the National League of Professional FooN ball Clubs, says college coaches need more experience as money players. Dwen considers Lou Little of Columbia University the best of the college mentors because of his work as a professional lineman. He looks for Cliff Baltics, who left the Washing- Ion Redskins, lo excel as Liltle's as- sislant because of the grounding in fundamentals and strategy- he received as a professional. field. Miller scored on Ihe error but McGuff was out trying to advance to second, Robert Holcomb to Vane LeMay. The Arkansans missed a chance to score in Ihe fifth. After one was out, Brook Robinson and Holcomb singled to right in succession. Then Wilbur Armbrust forced Robinson at third and Charles Love forced Armbrust. By JERRY BRONF1ELD NEA Service Sports Writer Lining up sectional football champions in September is a hazardous job. a preview of the eastern battleground shapes up something like this: Number one choice, Pitt—overwhelmingly. Following close in the Panthers' tracks. Darlmouth and Cornell. And ready to step forth as the surprise team, if Jim Crowley can mold seven more blocks of granite, is Fordham. Pittsburgh's losses, including Frank Souchak. Tony Matisi, Don Hensley, and Frank Patrick, were damaging, but not irreplaceable. Jock Sutherland will unquestionably have the finest ball-carrying backfield in the section in John Chickerneo, Dick Cassiano, Harold Stebbins, and Marshall Goldberg. The latter moves to full this season to make room for Cassiano, his 1937 understudy, who probably will be Sutherland's biggest ground gainer. Dartmouth will have something of a backfield herself in Harry Gates, Bill Hutchinson, Bob McLeod, and Colby Howe. McLeod should be Dartmouth's best since Swede Oberlander, and along with his mates will operate behind a tough line that contains an All-America candidate in Gus Eitrides, a guard. Carl Snavely worked wonders with 1937. They're all back with an added year's experience. Brud Holland, ne- gro All-America end, returns for duty, as do George Peck and Whit Baker, who will be spearheads of an exceedingly versatile backfield. If the Big Red gets past Colgate, Harvard, and Syracuse in their first three games, it wll be hard to stop. New Army Coach Tackles Tough Job Fordham's hopes are built around a crackajack backfeld and a mediocre line. Billy Krywicki anc] Dom Principe will pace the backfield again, with the aid of Pete Holovak, a classy newcomer. But only Capt. Harry Jacunski, end, and Mike Kochel, guard, return from that robust 1937 forward wall. The ever-resourceful Crowley has some fine material on Rose Hill, however, so the Ram isn't to be taken lightly. Capt. William H. Wood, Army's new mentor, has 12 available lettermen headed by Jim 'S'chwenk and Art Frontcznk in the backfield, and Woodrow Wilson and Jim Lotonzo, tackle, in the line. The situation is none too rosy, and the same can IDC said about Navy, which with 14 letlermen gone from last year's club, is in the process of rebuilding. Two clubs that will bear watching are Villanova and Holy Cross. The Wildcats, who enjoyed an undefeated season a year ago, lost a great back in Andy Stopper and a bang-up tackle in John Mellus, but Clipper Smith has plenty left—mosl notable of whom being John Wysocki, devastating All- America end. Last reserves were strong, and tlie freshmen were tough, so Villanova should bound along in good shape. Holy Cross lays claaim to the best and when one considers the fact that eight regulars a year ago were juniors and are going to war again, the Crusaders take on menacing proportions. Andy Kerr is still the Wizard of the Chenango Valley, but he'll have to dig deeper than ever into his bag of tricks to come up with much at Colgate. N. Y. U. Team Boasts Biggest '' Bnckfleld Dr. Mai Stevens, head man at N< Y. U., admits he has the best bunchjie ever had at Washington Square. He has the heaviest backfield in the'east, averaging more than 200 pounds, 'if he can get a Ine to match, hsi boys won't be shrnking Violets on 'anybody's gridron. Pop Warner lost only three regulars from last year's Temple club, but a terrific schedule probably will take its toll. Despite the loss of Vern Struck, the great spin-bucker, and Alex Kevof- kian, tackle, Harvard will be dangerous to all. Tad Weiman, with material galorejat Princeton, will be especially forrjud- able in November, when he gets s&jne of his promising sophomores whipped into line. i^ Loss of that great baekfield of Clint Frank, Al Hessberg, Charley Ewart, and Dave Colwell leaves Yale a q\$es- tion mark until Ducky Pond develops a new set of ball carriers. "^ Penn, with George Miinger newiat the helm, will depend greatly pn fSur or five sophomores to plug gaps "left Optimism runs high at Syracuse, where Ossie Solem will have a wljale of a line and a fair-to-middlin' Hackfield. £\ Columbia has the brilliant Sid LucTc- man ,but not much else. Penn, Car. negie Tech, and Boston College "will play tough football, but they're ! Aot Rose Bowl bound by plenty. <| Little Lafayette is all steamed up |or a second undefeated season, but Penn in the opener may prove a little "too much. , , '"I1JJP Penn State, Boston College, and Duquesne don't figure to get very far Because of weaek reserve material. But iron-man stunts have been performed before, and 1938 may be the year for an encore. ^ H-' NEXT: Tile South. i Prescott to Meet Stephens Friday Curly Wolves Will Attempt to Win Second Game of.

French Army Maneuvers Show Warlike Scenes as Men and Munitions Are Mobilized With war spirit aflame throughout all Europe, this picture of French dispatch nders receiving their orders in the dead of night hearkens back to Uie dreai day, of 1915 when poilus just like these rode their bouncing motorcycles over rutted corpse-strewn roads to carry messages to the World War front. Their faces thrown into sharp relief by the light of army lanterns, the soldiers were pictured as they Participated m eivnck army maneuvers conducted witli all the grim seriousness of actual war. Communications centers must be guarded from the enemy, and here French machine gunners are pictured behind a barbed-wire barricade as they trained their weapons along a street leading to aa underground telephone and telegraph station. Note that the soldiers, although only playing at war are carrying full field equipment. France is taking no chances on a surprise attack which might catch her unawares. While troops like these were maneuvering at Bescancon, near the Swiss border, other $oldiers, guns, ammunition and supplies were rushed to the famous Maginot Line which stands «s a mighty bulwark between Franca and Hitler's Germany, No, this picture was not lifted out of a World War album.
