Mont's Seed Store Pacific Coast to Suspend Football Los Angeles, March 17 — (/P)— The Pacific Coast Conference, as now constituted, is out for the duration, and the four California members, Stanford. UCLA, Southern California and Calfornia. most likely will schedule home-an - home football games next fall. ' While the schedule will not be drawn until the June meeting in Portland, Ore.. Southern California's manager of Athletics, Arnold Eddy, points oul since intersectional foolball has become a wartime casualty, a Washington-USC game, involving 2,500 miles travel, is just about out of the question. "All Ihe schools in the conference want lo continue football if possible," says Eddy, "but they want to cooperate to the .fullest in the war effort,, too, and the reduction of travel to the minimum is the No/ 1 must order. I initialed Ihe idea of home-and-home schedules for Ihe California schools at the last conference meeting, but it did not get formal consideration." Eddy thinks the home-and-home 'ootball arrangement has fine possibilities as a crowd lure.

Armstrong Talking About Ending Career Philadelphia, March 17 — (m — '''MM eminent Los Angeles poet and literaleur, Hammorin' Henry Armstrong, announces loday he has a! most finished his memories but if the literal's world is waitinn with bated breath to read them it'll have to keep right on bating. For the former triple champion of boxing, a man of letters as well as left hooks, is caught in the throes of composition —• ho can't find his anti - climax. Hammerin' Henry, here for a 10- round comeback tussle with Al Tri- buani of Wilmington. Del., in Con- yertion Hall Monday night, drew reflectively on his metal, overslunsr pipe, which was empty, and told a select circle of critics: "I even have a title — a good one, I think — 'My Struggle to Three Crowns' — but it isn't quite ready for publicatin yet, because my anti - climax is missing. I'd- figured I'd end it where I beat Fritzie Zivic, but I'm not through yet. Here I am making a comeback and what happens to me now will be anti - climax." Henry, who has long been known as a poet but has never before been known lo venture into the field of deathless prose, was asked whether he brought any of his pieces along with him. "I never carry any of my literary work around with me," he replied. "Leave it home.", He admitted to the select circle that the years (30) have mellowed. "I used to write poems about j fighting and struggling and all that, ' but it has grown a little tiresome, don't you know. 1 like to write about romantic things now. Romance, that's what 1 prefer." Henry said it was Mrs. Armstrong who largely influenced him to get back into the ring. Aflerl7 months of retirement, he went out and bought a $3,500 automobile, he ivlated, and she put him on a allowance. Ott May Find Going Tougher This Season By JUDSON BAILEY Lukewood,, N. J., March 17 — </P) —Me] Ott performed a minor miracle last year by leading his New York Oiants lo Ihird place in the Nalional League. He may have to work a major miracle this season to keep Ihem in the first division. The cold facts are that the Giants' losses to the war are the heaviest in the senior circuit. Pitcher Hal 'Schumacher, ouflicld- cr Willard Marshall. Hie greal rookie find of last season, and Babe Young, the slugging outfielder-first baseman, have entered the service: Third Baseman Bill Werber has retired and two bigger blows appear about to fall — since First Baseman Johnny Mize and Catcher Harry Dunning are both in Class 1-A nnd waiting induction. Here, then, arc six men missing out of the Giants' regulars of last season. The once proud Giants right now appear about as formidable as a rowboat. Bui Oil retains his optim'ism. He simply tells questioners that things will work out an that he doesn't think the future will turn out as dark as •> it looks. For one thing the Giants are, in effect, marking time till March 24, he day Mize is to report for induction. They think there is a possibility he might be rejected because injuries in recent seasons lave shown him to be an easy slceder. If Mize should be turned down by the Army, the Giants' other jroblems could be solved in var- ous ,vays and with varying hopes 'or success. But, as the matter stands now. Mize is out of the pic- utrc and the New York roster looks like a jigsaw puzzle. Bids Received on MiHer Levee Work Vicksburg, Miss., March 17 —(/P) —Bids will be opened by the'U. S.

Reduction of in Cotton Plan The reduced premium plan highlights changes in this year's cot- top crop insurance program, cording to Earl N. Martindale, chairman, Hempstead County AAA Committee. Under the reduced premium plan, grower's premiums will be reduced as much as 50 per cent when the amount paid into the Corporation over a continuous period of years equals or exceeds the amount required to pay one total loss. will work.; which are The reduced plan only on' those farms covered by insurance for an unbroken period, the chairman said in clarifying the. change. Paralleling cotton crop insurance and unemployment insurance, the AAA official said that city workers contributed a part of their calary each year to an unemployment reserve lo tide them over when their source of income was lost and that cotlon crop insurance does Ihe same thing for farmers. Insurance guarantees either 50 per cent or 75 per cent of a farm's average yield and aplication should be made in Hempstead county prior to April 1, 1943.
