•*'•• Luke Sewell Is Manager Almost Without a Team By OSCAR KAHAN Cape Girardeau, Mo., March 18— (fP)~ Luke Sewell of the St. Louis Browns is a manager virtually without a team. Although the Browns' reserve list of .10 players was the largest in the American league, only 19 have reported for spring training so Car. And, us Sewell said, "Y o u can't got a team In shape when your players are scattered all over tho country." Cotract trouble isn't the chief reason for nbsi'iUpcishi. T h i r d baseman Harlond Clift, for example, is still at Selah, Wash., trying to find some one to care for lf> head of cattlo on his ranch. Pitcher Paul Dean is helping finish some chores at Holdenvillc Ark. Young Bill Seinsoth, promising rookie loft hanclor who won 24 and lost ten games with New Orleans last season, wrote he believed he could get into condition by himself on the west coast. Sewell's reply si/zlcd on the telegraph wires. Seven of Browns' players still are unsigned, among them Clift, because he doesn't know whether he'll be able to play baseball this year, first baseman George McQuinn. pitchers Sta n Fcrens and Archie McKain. catcher F r a n k Hayes, and infieldcrs Floyd Baker and Don Heffner. Other absentees, several of them awaiting draft summons, are pitchers George Caster and W o o d y Rich, catcher Dick Forrell, second baseman Don Gutlerldgc. rookie Shortstop Bob Dillingi-r, utility infielder Alan Strange, short slop Vernon Stephens and'first baseman Chuck Stevens. As a result. Sewell has only OIK- infielder in camp, Mark Chris'man; two recruit catchers. Joe Sehulf/. and Ardys Keller, nine pitchers and all six outfielders. Pebs Sell Trexler to Indianapolis Richmond. Va., March 18 — (#•)— Jim Trexler. who won 19 and lost seven games as pitcher for Little Rock ! n the Southern Association last year, said today he had been sold by Little Rock to Indianapolis of the American Association, but intended to stick to his new job as n Richmond policeman. Trexler. who formerly pitched for Richmond in the Piedmont- League, said he would immediately inform Indianapolis of his decision and ask Judge W. G. Bramham, minor league baseball commissioner, to place him on the voluntary retired list.

Wide World Sports Columnist New York' March 18 W)— The National Collegiate A. A, won't be holding its usuiil golf and tennis championships this spring although the track- meet probably will go on as usual. . . The reason, of course, is that by the time these events usually are run off, most colleges will have had their commencements and there won't be many top-flight competitors hanging around. . . It seems to be the academic speed-up, rather than service calls, that arc wrecking the college spring programs and by next fall Prof. Philip. O. Badger, the N.C.A.A. president, figures sports "will be stabilized on a new basis.". . Anyway, stabilized or not, it will bo new Muscle Jerks When the Yankees used the Asbury Park, N.

The muscular manvueers of the alhlclns were so funny that some of the kids laughed right out loud and had to be reprimanded for embrrassing the mighty major leaguers. . . Maybe Col. Biff Jones, the Army athletic director, was seeking to provide similar entertainment when he suggested that the Dodpors start work in the West point field house a little earlier so the cadets could see some real expensive ivory on the hoof.

Cleaners & Hatters Phone 385 Labor to Seek Relaxation of Wage Control Washington, March 18—(/)')—Labor leaders demanding a relaxation of the government's wage ;dphtrols will lay their case before President Roosevelt Saturday at a meeting which conceivably may determine; the War Labor Board's future policies. The occasion Is a perodio gathering of labor's Victory Committee, composed of AFL. CIO and Railroad Brotherhood officials who are critical of the policies the board is administering. Already shaken by niternal dissension, the WLB faces an onslaught from still another quarter —John L. Lews of the United Mine workers. Experienced government observers believe the real crisis in the soft coal wage, case will be postponed considerably beyond April. 1, when the present agreement expires, but these and other .informed sources question whether some measures to bolster WLB prestige and give it a harmonious front can be as long delayed. Postponement of the co«l crisis, in Ihe opinion of government officials who cannot be quoted, will take the form of an offer by Lewis to make any future agreement retroactive to April: 1, or an order by the WLB, or the president, to that effect. The board is composed of an equal number of representatives of industry, labor and the public — a maximum of 12 members, although sometimes decisions are made by a nine-man board and v in minor cases, by. a. six - man board. Decisions have been unanimous in 70 per cent of the cases and .lissents caused 1m cropland dissents caused little more than a ripple as long as they occurred on a unil basis. However, grave dissensions over interpreting basic policy became evident in the west coast aircraft case two weeks ago when public member Wayne L. Morse joined the. labor unit in a minority vote, and some of the labor members declared "dictation" by Stabilization. Director James F. Byrne had; destroyed the board's Democratic processes. At one point in the aircraft case, George Meany, AFL secretary- treasurer, gave the Nazi salute, shouted, "Heil, Byrnes," and: walked out of the room. Since the aircraft decision, Morse has disagreed with his public'col- leagues several more' times, though 1 not always voting with the labor unit. Meanwhile, the AFL. has formally proposed a program to revamp the board's wage policy, including, a new ceiling on cost-of-living adjustments. The-board'will take it' up Monday and its rejection, if the board votes at all, is generally expected. Morse's quarrel with the rest of the public members does not involve the application of the 15 per cent (little steel) formula, which is strictly a cost-of-living adjustment. He is on record' against raising that ceiling until the rest of the government' agencies have had 1 more opportunity to stabilize living costs. Eventually, he says, it may have to be raised to assure living standard's that will not impair production efficiency. Plant Properly, Save Seed, Urge Experts This is No. 7 of a series of 12 articles of expert advice for Victory gardeners this year. It is suggested that you clip and save each installment for future reference. Prepared by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for NEA Service. The need for garden seed, is greater this year than ever before, and for this reason it is important that all Victory gardeners buy and sow their seeds wisely. "Don't buy more seed than you need to plant," cautions the U. S. Department of Agriculture. "Don't plant more seed than you need to get a stand." The Department points out that spaced as the plants are to stand. These vegetables never should be thinned in the rows. Small seeds, such as carrots, collards, onions, parsnips, spinach, should be sown three or four times as thickly as the plants are to stand, because many seeds usually fail to produce good seedlings. Surplus seedlings are to be thinned out before the plants crowd one another. Beet and chard "seeds" should be sown no thicker than the plants are to stand, because these "seeds" are reglly fruits, each containing several seeds. Some thinning is always necessary.

Four weeks ago the Germans were here looting. Before they left they seized four rabbis as hostages and demanded that the Jews give them 100 pounds in gold' as ransom money or the rabbits would be shot. The deadline for delivery of the gold was set for 1 p.m. At noon the Jews had only 80 pounds in gold. Women had- given rings, bracelets and little treasures. Men had parted with watches, chains and rings. But still they were 20 pounds short. So they went into the synagogues and stripped them of gold plate and precious ornaments, and the rab- lives were saved. This story was told us many times'on our tour of .he island and its picturesque vil- gaes. More than 200 refugees fled ' to Djerba from the German - occupied ports of Sfax, Sousse ad abes in Tunisia. They said the :ermans looted the towns and'that American bombings had' smashed most of the buildings. "Will the Germans return?" Many asked fearfully. We assured them the Germans would not return to Djerba. And they cheered and clapped hands. 84 24 2-3 15-24 2-3 4-6 15-18 12 12 4-6 2-3 2-3 1 12 2 3-4 30 15 24 2-3 3-4 3-4 6 20-25 lb. 1 ounce 50-90 plants ] /4 ounce 1 ounce 1 packet 1 packet 1 packet ounce 1 qt. sets ounce 1 lb. 6-8 Ibs. 1 ounce ounce 1 ounce V4 lb. 50 plants ounce V? 1-1% 1 ~ while the suply of vegetable seed for Victory Gardens promises to be sufficient to meet the country's needs, the situation is tight, particularly for onion, beet and carrot seeds, and it would be unwise to waste any kind. Nearly all gardeners, especially at first, have been found to sow seed too thickly. This not only requires an. excess of seed', but also 1 wastes labor, as the seedlings later must be thinned by hand to- the- spacing needed for proper growth. Where- seed are sown too closely, poor growth and' poor quality vegetables result unless thinning is prop- eijy done.

Tall growing crops should be placed preferably on the north' or west side of the garden so that they will not shade the low plants. As far as possible, the first plantings of small and early vegetables should be along the south or east side, with later crops to be sown progressively across the plot. This helps avoid confusion and damage to earlier sowings. Gardeners should consult their experienced neighbors and local agricultural advisers on the best time to plant the various kinds of vegetables. Tiny Isle Off Coast of Africa Almost Escapes War By DON WHITEHEAD On the Island of Djerba, March 14—(Delayed)—(tf 1 )— The gods of war almost forgot this island of golden sands off the North African coast' — almost, but not quite. Twentyfive miles away guns are booming. The earth trembles with the explosions of shells and the thunder of bombs dropped from American and British planes on Field Marshal Rommel's positions in the Mareth line. Armored cars and tanks roll across Tunisian THE GREMLINS YOUR* PONG VERY <5oop WORK, MISS SUSIE.

But over Djerba island a senso of peace and security rests like a protective cloak. In a world gone mad it is a place of quiet serenity where life is sane and almost normal. One would never believe such a spot could exist along the war-ravaged African coast wihtin earshot of the guns. But here it is — an island of golden sands lying green and beautiful in the Gulf of Gabes. Its history is losl in antiquity, but it is known that Djerba pottery was being made before the birth of Christ. A little native boat with patched sails carried us to the island , lying aboul a mile off the mainland. "You are Ihe first American we have seen." the boatman said to me in French. "Vive Roosevelt!" Our car followed us by ferry, the machine looking almost as big ,ii the boat. We drove across the island over an excellent road to Djerba's principal town — Houmt- Souk. The road wound through green barley fields, groves of olive trees and scarlet masses of poppies splotched wilh the vivid yellow of daisies. Shepheds tended 'flocks of sheep and herds of goats. The bosses 11 of Houmt-Souk were blue and white, so clean they gleamed in Ihe sunlight — and one thought of the shattered towns along the coast westward from El Alamuin, with jagged walls of shattered masonry and the stench and filth of destruction. Here everything was as spotless as though freshly scrubbed. Frenchmen, Arabs and Djerbans strolled through the streets and market places as people a I home in America stroll on a quiet afternoon. Children played in the main square. And for Ihe first time since the Eighth Army began its advance across Africa I saw a woman pushing a baby carriage. More than anything else that added to the illusion of unreality. The people were friendly and crowds gathered to shake our hands whenever we stopped. They seemed jubilant over the arrival of the British and the departure of the Germans and Italians.
