Both brothers were decisively defeated by the Chicago Cubs en the day before ths Detroit ciiM"- 1 - ment. "We fslt so bad about It that we didn't want to go to Dstrolt or anywhere else," explains Dizzy. The elder Dean now has a manager, which perhaps is why both brothers express confidence that they will be treated fairly in a financial way by 3am Breadon & Co. in 1935.

Oct. 4.—pirty-su of Ihe most important college football Sanies of the 193-1 season will be covered play by play In a series of ;-c-i:Uon:il broadcasts sponsored bj the Chevrolet Motor Co., which announced the .schedule here today The- broadcasts will begin Octotei 6 aim continue through, the kenson, with 24 stations broadcasting seven different B amcs each Saturday. Sec- 1 tlonal networks nnd powerful in-' : dividual stations will combine to! give full coverage In each district, The novel plan of blanketin^ a large proportion of the United States with sectional broadcasts waa adopted by Chevrolet In-lieu of national broadcasts of single games in order to give listeners in each area ths opportunity ( o follow the details nf the in which they aro especially interested, The' annpuncsmcw, declares that this is .the first time that a. national sponsor of sports broadcasts has pro- .vital for simultaneous reports of the most imprtant contests in different rcRlons. To supplement the detailed description of each sectional game there will be broadcasts durint "tinw outs" aiirl tohvcen periods of telegraphic bulletins covering other !en;liu ? games of particular" Interest in HID same region.

Games scheduled In the various sections include all those of th- Uiiiverelty of Michigan, both at home and abroad; all games of the University of Pennsylvania, with the finest Big Ten kickers the past two years, and spelling him this season in Coach Bernie Biennan's most formidable left halfback position are two more able punters George Reimix nnd George Roscoe.' Liinil lacks polish as a kicker and passer, but gets results. H- Rork, a fullback, from Eau C|alre, Wis., outkicks the lot when he really,gets his toe Into a punt. Sam Hunt, 155-pound quarter of Red Lake Falls, is extraordinarily consistent. Rork and Hunt are sophomores. Glen Seidel, who called plays and blocked, so well In 1933 that' he Is the starting quarterback this fall, has taken up kicking with astonishing results. 'Minnesota engages two of the stronger outside teams before buckling .down to Western Conference competition. The Gophers will spend the fortnight between the Nebraska battle of Oct.

"Ty. here's one game you don't know anything about.'s see you kick this football," he told the bisebill player. Cobb's first effort flew back awkwardly over his head. Then he got McGuglu to shmv him how Io kick and for 30 minutes be wetil off by nlmtilf in one corner of ths field and practiced kicking.
