May 4 —(/I 1 )— Every one of the sports writers who par- ;icipated in a poll conducted by the North Carolina Navy Prc - Flight School picked football as one of :he ten best sports for physical development. . . That's just about A'hat the Navy had decided in advance, judging from the year-round =!rid programs at these schools, aut its rather surprising not to find water polo somewhere on the list. . That's a form of mayhem practiced down at the bottom of a swimming pool where the referee can't see what's going on and it's practically a "toughness" program all by itself. . Only drawback is that it might not leave tho boys in shape for flying. . . The scribes rater track the No. 2 sport with boxing and swimming tied for third.

Souhlpaw Jesse Danna will take the mound for New Orleans tonight The Barons' hurling choice was not announced. The Nashville Vols will nla their first night game at home" tonight against the Atlanta Crackers, opening the longest scries of the year — six games.
