Cowen plans to spend Thursday, working on kicks from placement. Cowan said he probably would start the same line-up which started against By HARRY ORA.YSON Kpor(s Editor, NEA Service There is much hullabaloo in southern California about a new rubber kicking toe. It is two inches wide, corrugated in front, and fits on the regulation fool- ball .shoe like a rubber. The device was invented by Cecil .Cushman, coach of tho University of ; Redlands, Calif. With it, Phil Caspar and Ralph Stanley of the University of Southern California between them. are said to h^ve booted 59 out of GO attempted placements in practice. 'That's a lot of placements. Obviously, the new kicking toe Works in practice, but coaches say that only practice will get results, in any form of kicking . and drop-kicking. especially in place Naturally, the greater 7-esiliency of even hard rubber may add a little distance, although not much, and distance never was the major problem in place or drop-kicking. Accuracy is what counts. Almost anybody can kick off successfully from his own 40-yard line !iO-odd yards into a space 160 feet wide. Almost any body can pick up the point after touchdown from about 20 yards out . . . provided he is accurate. But kicking, a football into territory ICQ feet wide and booting it between uprights 18Vi feet apart '• is an altogether different proposition.

Atlanta which won the Southern Association play-off Monday night in Nashville, will represent the circuit. Friday will be an off day, the Constitution says, and games are scheduled in Beaumont Saturday, Sunday and monday. Atlanta Wins Final NASHVILLE, Tenn-(ff>|—The Atlanta Crackers presented final proof Monday night that they are the class of the Southern Association by taking the fifth and final game of the ShaughneEsy playoff with Nashville, 8 to 3. The Crackers, victor in the regular season, triumphed over Memphis in five games in the preliminary playoff series while Nashville defeated New Orleans, also in five games. The victory qualified the Crackers to represent the league in the annual Dixie Series against Beaumont, Texas League victors. Beekman the Winner Bill Beekman went the route for the visitors, allowing nine hits while Atlanta combed Bill Crouch and Lefty Johnson for 13. t Boiling gave the Crackers a one-run Vend in the third inning with a home run over the short right field screen. The Crackers added another in the Captains in S. W. Conference Opener angles for Harvard. That was all Dutch Clark needed to drop-kick from all kinds of angles out in Colorado and in the National League of Professional Football Clubs. That was all Crip Toomey, the left-footed kid, required to do the same thing for California wonder teams. That was all Jack Manders needed to set some kind of a record for place-kicking for Minnesota and the Chicago Bears. As related in the foregoing, there have been numerous kicking contraptions since kickers of Jock Sutherland's postwar Lafayette teams fastened pieces of old-fashioned automobile tires around their shoes to obtain greater distance. It Has to Be Lugged Around These pieces of old tires scarcely could be more cumbersome than the new California device. A player scarcely can play in it or lug it around while in action. The ball must be put in play in 30 seconds, so he would have to get it on in a hurry, and precious times out can't be wasted adjusting devices of the kind. "The trouble with most fellows trying to kick the ball," says LeRoy Mills, New York lawyer and foremost instructor of kicking, "is that they try to murder it. It's not altogether distance that counts. Placing is even more important." "Drop-picking has practically disappeared from football because place- kicking is simpler, and coaches haven't the time to devote to drop-kicking," asserts Dutch Clark. It may be true that the corrugated front of the new rubber toe helps to keep kicks in Ijne, but the majority of coaches declare that the contraption will go the way of many similar devices out the stadium window if the stadium has any windows. "From The Land Of The Sky Blue Water" By Charles Wakefield Cadman . Nolle Richmond Eberharr BIRTH OF A SONG from ASCAP Files by Joseph R. Fliesler and Paul Carruth The little fellow who played as a small boy in Johnstown, Pa,, where he was born, was descended from a line of patriots dqting back to the Revolutionary War. There was music in his family tree, and it was natural that Charles Wakefield Cadman, whose great-grandfather built pipe organs,' should turn first to that instrument. He was church organist in Pittsburgh for twelve years and after some study with local teachers became music critic of the "Pittsburgh Dispatch," Cadman spent one summer on the Omaha Indian Reservation and at Winnebago in an intensive study of Indian music, which he has. never ceased. He wrote at that time a number of Indian songs, which were rejected, some five times, by various publishers before they were finally accepted. While he stayed with the Indians Cadman had accumulated a knowledge of their music which he later incorporated into a talk delivered on lecture tours.

Atlanta scored two more runs hi the fifth on two hits, a walk, sacrifice and pitch by Crouch, for a 4-to-3 margin. more runs in the sixth enabled Beckm&n to coast home with the decision. Atlanta had won the first three games, Nashville taking its lone victory in the fourth game Sunday. Pirates and Cubs Meet for Pennant Dizzy Dean to Hurl Opening Game of Crucial Series CHICA.GO.—W—The National League pennant race will be decided in the three-game series between the pursuing Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates, opening at Wrigley Field Tuesday. After those three games it .will be all over. This situation has made a gambler out of Gabby Hartnett, manager of the Cubs, a soberer Hartnett than in his pre-managerial days. He has been gambling nil through the three weeks winning streak in which the Cubs have won 17 out of their last 20 games and he is going to gamble again Tuesday on his pitching selection, saving his two aces, Clay Bryant and Bill Lee for the games with Pittsburgh Wednesday and Thursday. Each will have had two days rest by that time. Thus Hartnett is gambling only on Tuesday's game. He took a chance in sending Lee against the Cardinals Monday and won. He gambled by booking a double-header with Philadelphia last Friday and won. He has gambled with pi tellers who weren't expected to win and he won. He has gambled by using his two stars with only two days rest and won. .Tuesday Hartnett will take a chance with the 5185,000 arm of Dizzy Dean, who has pitched six and two-thirds scoreless relief innings in three appearances since he was knocked from the box by the Pirates August 20 in his last start and only defeat of the year. The Cubs believe they have a good luck charm in a bat which First Baseman Rip Collins acquired in a trade with Phil Weintraub of the Phillies. The Cubs call it "the Weintraub percentage." "I hadn't been hitting," said Collins, 'so 1 swapped with Weintraub. I used the club the first day and hit everything on the nose. Weintraub went into a slump. We all thought it was so lucky that I quit using it and put it in the rack for fear I might break it. The next day I got six hits in nine times at bat and the next two for three. There is no stopping us now." Hermit crabs are not hermits. They prefer company of others of their kind but for protection, each lives in a sep- aate deseted shell of some gastopd.

G. Larimore, a reserve of last year, gave an excellent performance at quarterback Saturday, and may start against the Christians. Monday's drills found Kay Eakin, the outstanding star ot the Aggie game, running with Walter Hamberg, Ray Cole, and Larimore in the backfield, although Joe Scalet, his sophomore back, probably 'will start again Saturday.
