For on a storm swept night that April, the huge Akron rose into the skies at the command of "Up Ship!" And at midnight, in a burst of lightning, it nosed down into the sea. She mustn't think about it! Mustn't think about the gray morning in the commandant's house when the wives of the other men had wept silently, enduring their loss as navy wives must. Only she had been bitter and rebellious, beating her fists uselessly against the pillows, sobbing until her eyes were burning and her face was a pale, tear-plowed ruin. Ships had rushed to the spot where the Akron went down. Merchant ships and navy ship^ and Coast Guard patrols. But they ;ound only floating wreckage, and three lone men, clinging to aluminum tanks.

And she had hated him, too. "If you had let me marry. Ward, I'd have been his wife, even if only for a little while!" older 1 got! IT was OVer, now. But ths . get mar- * ory was always like a knife In her heart. Little by little, she had become more friendly with Jack. He had been Ward's friend. He had gone through that night of horror with Ward. And he, like Ward, had a faith in dirigibles that was brave and unconquerable. He was n pilot, Jack. His airplane had been sheltered in the hull ot the huge Akron, and released to fly miles ahead, on scouting duty. Now he was-on the Enterprise, a giant plane carrier, from whose decks squadrons of planes could roll down to the takeoff. But ho would have liked to be attached to another dirigible. Only, there weren't any now. He wanted to join the little band of men who still fought for dirigibles, for a chance to prove to the world that there was more to them than disaster and screaming headlines. His voice called her back from the far-off place of memory. He said, gently, "I—I didn't mean to be so harsh about Dwight, Judy. But I can't stand to see you being made a fool of. I know what he's after, and I don't like it." She said slowly, "You can't be sure of a thing like that! It's perfectly possible"— she tried for a laugh—"that he loves me for myself alone." The laugh fizzled out, and she was angry. Last night, and Dwight's arms around her. Oh, he couldn't be doing it just for a chance at her father's influence! She drew herself up proudly. Even tonight, it was as Dwight's guest that she liad dined in the junior officers' mess, while her mother and father dined up in the captain's quarters. Her bare throat gleamed in the darkness. She said, "It wasn't very nice of you to tell me this." Jack said, "You know how I feel about you. We've been friends a long time. And he's a lightweight. I—I couldn't stand it." Suddenly she was blazingly furious. "It's none of your business who I go with, or what he wants! As it happens, Dwight isn't after what you so flatteringly insinuate le'is. He's after me! Me! Does hat seem so strange to you?" She :ook a deep breath. She said, linging her words into his face, 'He's asked me to marry him, so low do you like that? 1 ' (To Be Continued) According to traffic experts, a car traveling 30 miles an hour wil require 80 feet' to stop.

If so, there's trouble ahead. Just by ordinary process of improving with age Southern Methodist is beginning to loom as a formidable foe for the Christians on November 26. Too, the Methidists have a line that proved against the Aggies it can handle all sorts of running power. The Christians, with 177 points to the enemy's 33 in seven triumphs, will not depart-from the old polciy of taking the mas they come, even against Texas at Fort Worth Saturday. Today it was a three-way tie for first place in the conference, TCU with three wins and Southern Methodist and Rice with two each. Rice won its three to nothing game against Arkansas the hard way, scoring on Jake Schuehle's field goal in the final fifty seconds of play on the third attempt. Rice must meet at College Station next Saturday a Texas Aggie team that saw its seven to nothing lead over Southern Methodist melt away to defeat in the closnig minutes, the Methodists scoring on Clement's pass to to Bill Dewell and Sophomore Joe Pasqua's amazing 45-yard field goal in the final 30 seconds.

It is the first time a Cardinal chain" Bell Threatened at ' Porker-Rice Game Police .Escort Official From Field After 'Hectic >Game FAYETTEVILLE, .Ark.-M>)-Hcferee Alvin Bell of Little Rock, had to be escorted off the field by state policemen Saturday after Rice won n hectic Southwestern Conference grid battle from Arkansas 3-0. The Owls made three attempts to placckicking before Fullback Jake Schuehlc booted the piksgln through the uprights from the 27-yard marker with only 50 seconds to play remaining. Two of the three plays were the most highly disputed ever to occur in Fayotteville. On the first field goal try which was blocked, a Rice substitute Was on the field and officials said the whistle was blown before the kick. Guard Bill Hiinor, holding the ball for the second ntte'mpt, fumbled. Schuohle picked up, wns chased back 20 yards than tried to pass to a teammate who turned out to be an ineligible receiver. Players and fans contended the ball was grounded deliberately but no penalty was called. Schuchle split the crossbars with the aid of a strong wind on the next play. None of the fans left the west side stands even after Bell raved over to answer boos The east side fans, including students and some 2000 others, swarmed on to the playing field. The university ROTC joined officers in helping to protect Bell. Coach Fred C. Thomson of Arkansas walked beside the official to the players dressing room. Approximately 1500 fans surrounded the room for more than 30 minutes when the crowd began breaking and Bell left under police guard. Tiiomsen later diclosed that Arkansas refused a five-yard penalty for 12 Rice players being on the field when the kick was attempted. He added that although many thought the pass was intentionally grounded on the second play the decision of the officials was accepted as final. Bell concurred in Thomson's statement concerning the first play. On the second he explained that under no circumstances could an intentional grounding be called when the opposing team had opportunity to intercept and that three Arkansas players were near the ball when it hit the ground. The official expressed the belief the fans did not fully understand the ruling. The game, witnessed by 11,000 homecoming fans, was the fourth conference defeat handed Arkansas this season and the third time the Razorbacks had gone down in the final minute of play. It was the first time Arkansas failed to score in a conference game since a 7-0 defeat by Rice in 1934. Marring the homecoming celebration in addition to the disturbance and defeat was the injury of Halfback Kay The PAYOFF By HARRY GRAYSON Editor, NBA Service A high spiral Is n thing of beauty, but It isn't as effective as a lower punt with a little wobble at the tail. The latter is more easily controlled It can be aimed at the sidelines and jnnde to sikip out of bounds . . . frequently inside the 20-ynrd line. The kick out of bounds is a better weapon, even though It is comparatively short, than a booming boot downffeld. Punt returns are dangerous runs There is no percentage in a kicker like Jerry Dowd of Saint Mary's, for example, booting the ball a long way Into the arms of an open field runner like Bill Hutchinson of Dartmouth. Norte Dame has the right idea about running back punts. When a punter kicks the ball so the Irish safety (rtan has a chance to run with It, the South Bend line knocks down all the opposing linemen before they can get started and the enemy ends are cracked quickly The result is that the safety man has a running start before a tackier gets near him. And with young sprinters Hke Notre Dame's Ben Sheridan, Sitko, and Saggau, a flying start easily mayc be suicide to the kicking team The ball cannot be run back for a touchdown when it is booted out of bounds. Every Punt Return Is n Potential Touchdown Mike Kabcalo, one of the country's foremost distance punters, actually kicked Ohio State to defeat right under the gun in the Southern California scrap.

Ohio State outkickcd Northwestern in their scoreless tie ... 10 punts averaging 38.1 yards from the line of scrimmage. The Purple punted seven titties for an average of 33, but six of the kicks were out of bounds, whereas the Wildcats returned five Ohio State kicks for a total of 64 yards, which reduced the 'Scarlets net average to 31.7.

They are instructed not to drop the ball far too meet the boot, but to place it down there, so that ground winds won't turn the ball before it is kicked. Vance has studied these and other Mills angles thoroughly. The kicks produced aren't too pretty, but they're practical and dangerous football weapons.

LOUIS—(/P)—Ray Blades, a veteran of the St. Louis Cardinal farm system, Sunday was named manager, of the St. Louis National League club product has been named manager of the St. Louis team. The announcement of Blades' selection to replace Frankie Frisch, the, tail end of whose five-year reign was| filled in by Coach Mike Gonzales late! last season, was made by President Sam Breadon, who declared: "After carefully considering many candidates for the position, I believe I have picked the most capable man I could find." Blades has been at the helm of the Cardinals' Rochester club of the International League since 1935. Prior to that, in 1933, he led Columbus to its first American Association flag in 26 years. Blades joined the Redbird organization in 1922 after he had attracted , the attention of Branch Rickey, then 1 manager of the Cards, by batting .330 in 118 games with Houston of the Texas League. That was the beginning of a Cardinal playing career, which lasted I through 1932, except for the season of 19-29, when Ray divided time between Rochester and Houston. In 1925 he was recognized as the hardest hitting lead-off batter in baseball. Ho hit .342 in 122 games for the Cards that season. Blades was one of the original members of the Cardinal champions for he played with the 1926, 1930 and 1931 pennant winners. With Blades at Columbus in 1933 when he entered the managerial spotlight his first year was Mike Gonzales, who will remain with the Cards as coach under Blades next year. Ray certainly will not be a stranger to the Cardinals when he reports for training at St. Petersburg' Fla., next spring. Sixteen members of the present squad played under him at Columbus Or Rochester. Terms of Blades' contract was not disclosed by Breadon. The St. Louis Browns now are the only big league team without a manager for 1939, but they are not without candidates. There have been 15 applications for the job, which probably will be filled within the next few weeks.
