*V V " i lit si* HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS 'ankees Still Considered the •v^v Team to Beat ,-• By ORLO ROBERTSTO New York, April 15 — (i& —The Kfew York Yankees lost three- lourths of their infield, the best l&rt of their outfield and the dean tit their pitching staff to Uncle Sttm but they're still the team to . beat fof the American League pen- i i natii in the opinion of the sports scribes. Fully realizing the war might change the complexion of any team ot teams on very short notice, 56 dt the 4 writers participating in the Associated Press' annual survey named the Yank to top the junior circuit for the third straight year. And not one of them placed the champs lower than fourth as they polled 569 votes on the basis of eight for first. seven for second, six for third and etc. But after-voting the Yankees the team, mostly likely to succeed, the \vrtters became widely seperated except in the opinion that Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics would land in the cellar. With five of the scribes naming them for first place, the St. Louis Browns received ballots for every position except seventh and eighth to nose out the Cleveland Indians dnd Boston Red Sox for second place. The Browns polled 437 votes to take the runnerup position, one notch above the spot in which they finished in the pennant race last season. ' The Indians and Red Sox each , received six first place votes but ? the Tribe showed a little more 1 strenc'h in the second and third , place ballots. As a result, they fin- x ished third with 418 votes to the Red Sox')nx. Cleveland was mentioned for every position except last as were i the Detroit Tigers, who with one first place vote, finished fifth with 331 tallies. The sixth slot went to the Chicago White Sox and seventh to the Washington Senators, who received consideration for all positions except the top rung.

With a big bath towel pinned in tent fashion over her head, she would steam her hair over a basin of hot water until the oil penetrated to the roots of her hair.
