B/ooklyn Wins First Of GJanf Seiies; Lee Wins Ninth For Cubs BY GEORGE'KJKKSEV United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, July 8 (UP)-Under the head of minor miracles Is the Red Sox's latest victory over Die Yankees. Beating the Yanks is the toughest trick in baseball but Joe Croiifn, playing the jckci wild, pulled one of the 5 ear's, neatest surprise patties by tilmmin', the Yanks lead to 10',!. gamos with a couple of ills pitching cripples, Jake Wade and Emerson Dickinan. The average Yankee fans' rcac- , tlon to the Red Sox's 4-3 victory jesterday «as, "two bums beat us." Wade, whose chief clnlm to fume Is a 1-0 vlctoiy over Johnny Allen two yeais ago when tlic Cleveland firebrand had wen 15 straight, had, n't started a game nil yeai, and lib recsrd was 0 and 0. .CronIn threw him In against Red Ruffing, who had won n and lost. 2 He dueled on even terms until the sixth when the going gol too tough and lie retired with tlic sc:ie knotted 3-3. Then Cionln culled nnother dark-horse, Dickman, who had won one game and lost, none In a relief role His pitching was even more^of a re\elnlton limn Wade's He came In with two runners on base, and walked Kcllci. Then he fanned Dalilgren and Huffing and gave up only three hits In the last three frames. The Red Sox made only eight lilts to the Yanks' 10 but they miulc them more judiciously. Bob Fellci added moie evidence that lie is baseball's greatest pitcher by booing his Htli triumph as Cleveland snapped the White Sox's five game winning stienk, 7-3.

Man With The, Big Stick Today's Sport Parade ttj Henry McUmort • NEW YORK, July 8. (UP)'--Just when It was fcnrcd this country was running short of ixmi|iotis athletic officials, nnd bur sports would have to be conducted by sensible sane men, the executive committee of Uic Professional Golfers' Association stepped hiio the breach. With all the resounding had judgment that lias: endeared athletic afilclals tar their keepers and friends, six or more of the P. .G. A. committee of 11 voted to bar Denny Shutc from the 22nd annual Professional Orlfers' Assoclatlcn cham-- pioiishlp which' starts tomorrow on Long Island's t'omonck course. Their reason for barring a two- time winner of former British the, title and a open champion. « C y fnc /"///•-*-/*— r Y 24-y£At?-oit> ctfeD STAR WfK> i.£ADG BOTH MAJOK LEAGU& , /S MoilW Hts /JS WELL makes Just ns much sense as the members do. It seems that the arch fiend Sliute .failed to 'pay his annual dues ot $25 on the day stipulated in the p. G. A. rule book. The l>:uk siiys Unit annual dues must be in by May 20th of each year. Shute's check wns two days late. The I s . a. A. secretary adjusted his glasses,- cleared his .throat ominously, pounded his list, and announced that Shutc was not a member In good standing and would net be allowed to play. Seme .of .the members objected to this flat statement and u vote •\vas ordered. A majority upheld the secretary,' there being enough members made of (he study stuir committees are made of. From this point .on (and all of this happned in May) things developed so rapidly that today no one Is (|iiltc sure of iiwv mutters stand. I do know this, however: During the National Open championship in'Philadelphia lust month Shutc was told that If he won the Open he would be allowed to compete in the P. G. A., In spite of Ills crime cf being two days lute with his dues. Telling a man that if he wins the Open he will be allowed to play in the p. G. A. is just like telling a next door nelgh- oor that If he becomes president lie would be welc:mc lo come in and lake pot luck seme evening. Anyway, Denny didn't win the Open. The best he could do was tic for it and lose In the play-oft, so naturally he is just as horrid to the P. G. A, as he ever was. Not, however, to his fellow golfers. They seem lo realize, with the fine sportsmanship that, they have always shown, that lo win the P. G. A. htle without Shiile in it I would be a hcllow victory ...So, as this gees to press, 48 of them, including all the big names, arc on strike. They have sworn thnt they will not swing a club in the tournament unless Shute is a stnrtcr. You can Imagine what sort of n t/curnament It will be without Snead, Ouldahl, Nelson, Plcard, Rc- volta, Sarazen and all the others, on the sidelines. I'm laying 2 lo 1 that when the time comes for the tournament to start tomorrow Denny Shiitp and all his loyal conferees will be -in the field.

Seeks New Leads In Story Of Human Cargoes , Hy NEA Service TAMPA, Fin., July C.—Hoping to build a chain of evidence which will lead to "the brains" of an alien smuggling, ring, n federal grand jury here Is prying Into the story of a fishing sloop, which ran afoul of federal agents when I ran afoul of treacherous Florida swajiips. Kcyman In Die case- Is Jose Doinlngiiez, a Cuban, apparent leader behind u'creiv of'six Cubans who attempted to sneak five Chinese men and an Armenian woman pnsl Die U. S. border patrol in a tattered ship. If UoiniiiBiiex can be made to Intb, authorities believe, a- tip-off to whereabouts of the ring's head- ijiiarlers may be gained. Such a ring Is •known to .operate'between here nnd Cuba, smuggling aliens for a rate of about $600 a person. CONCEALED IN PKIVATE IfOSIKS Small boats like that captured, are used, authorities say. They are met along the wild, uninhabited coast by shore boats which take Hie aliens Into mainland under cover of darkness. Then the aliens are concealed in private homes until they can be taken, in small parties, to New York by automobile. The story of the sloop, Venus, is a sea melodrama of human cargo which became unmanageable under the' fury ot pounding- waves as the little boat ranged up and down the coast, looking in vain for an overdue contact ship. A day and a night at sea—then a storm broke. The Armenian woman clung to the slippery deck; the Chinese, fearful, began to cnuse trouble for the crew. Capt. Carlos Hernandez decided lo lake a chance nnd land Ihc entire parly hi Ihe swampy, island wastelands along the coast Anchoring in low water, he took two skiilloads of crew to shore first, The • Orientals, terrified of desertion, grew panicky and cut the line. The rising wind hurled the boat into a shallow reef. Here the waves pounded the lilte vessel and washed .over the decks, sweeping the woman, Mrs. Mary Keashlan, Into the sea. Captain Hernandez relurn.ed barely in time to rescue her its the waves .lifted the sloop -Inlq the comparatively deep ' water neai shore nnd the Chinese (led Into the swamps.' Stt'AMPS, MOSQUITOES AIDKI) AGENTS it already federal agenb had them under observation with'* all escapes blocked. Hunger and mosquitoes tormented 'the aliens" in their.attempted flight through the trackless swamps, where they hid for days, always secretly watched. Finally, nil.bill two of the group ivcrc rounded .up and captured just as they attempted to gain mainland. The other two, Dominguez and Mrs. Kenslilan, were found In the 'ionic of J. F. "Hub" Johnson, old- llmc fisherman now held as accomplice. At a preliminary hearing, the [lay of the capture, Johnson and Donilngucz were held on $1000 and $2000 bonds, respectively, while the other aliens were booked at 5500 each.

An excellent example of !ivc-at- lioine enthusiasm Is that manifested by Fred Davis, 120 acre farmer of Leaehvillc. "By working together and following as many, of the suggestions .of the extension agents as Mrs. Davis and I can, y,-e are able to enjoy better living conditions as well as make more money." Mr. Davis said In discussing his farm life. A good diversified farming system is followed by this fanner who owns 40 acres and rents 80 mere and who has made n profit every year. Forty-eight acres is devoted to cotton, 40 acres to corn and soy beans, 10 acres to Laredo soy beans for hay ami 9 acres lo lespedm pasture which Is seeded to rje during the winter months, With the c.Mrn money obtained through diversification, lir.

The calves were sold during the all as feeders, bringing an average of $25 per head last year. The cows ire then carried through the wln- er on hay and corn for feed and beans In corn and winter rye for lasture. Because of the sandy nature of he soil, wind crcslon is prevalent during Hie spring, in nil effort to irevent these sand storms, Ihe Daviscs' son, George, planted 500 'lack locust trees in cooperation vith Ihe extension service as n 4-H club demonstration In wind rosicn control. At the present t.'iue, these trees are about four feet in height, In i few years it is believed they- will be tall enough to, make an effective wind break. Mrs. Davis has sodded a Bermuda ;rnss lawn and planted shrubs and lowers. Money obtained from her 50 White Wyandotte chickens was iscd t? build a new poultry house or laying and roosting. A small ionic orchard and a well balanced ardcn arc already supplying an btindance of fruits and vegetables vhlch are being canned to reach he 400 quart canning budget Mrs, Javls has set as her goal.

Scries Of Meetings To Co n t i n u e Into Next Week Soil building practices will be emphasized in a scries of meetings lo be held by Ihc Mississppt County extension agricultural agents next week in an effort to have the farmers earn more soil building payments. Checking performances in measuring tlic farms for the government program and the cooperative buying cf vclch will also be taken up by D. S. L-antrlp, agent, and B. W. Schrocder, assistant agent, Mississippi County last year earned 85 pei; cent of its soil buildin-j .allowance but the allowance was small, being only about S10 per 40 acres of land. This i was done mostly by planting soy beans in corn. Because the allowance this year I has been raised to about SIC per 140 acres, cr about one dollar for ;ench acre of Ihc cotton allotment, | it will be necessary for the farmers to have some soil building practices other than soy beans planted In corn if all of the allowance is earned, it has been pointed out by the agents. The planting of vetch is expected to aid. With the average amount of corn intcrplanlcd wilh beans, farmers will need some alfalfa, les- pcdcza or permanent pasture, such as vetch or bur clover. Vetch, which may be purchased through the AAA, when seeded in September at about 25 pounds per acre, has given gcod results by increasing both the yields of cotton and corn, It has been pointed out. All of these mailers will be explained at lliese meetings; Monday: Forty and Eight school; Tuesday: Dell; Wednesday: Manila; Thursday: L«achville; Friday: Lost Cone til 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, 2 , at the court house here.

WRESTLING George Bennett vs. Ned Taylor Roy Welch vs. Schoolboy Knox AMERICAN LEGION ARENA, MONDAY. 8 P.M. IE FORESTS Ranger Explains System Includes Watching Of Camping Parties SEQUOIA NATIONAL FOREST, Gal.—in the mountains, you have a sense of being by yourself. Actually the eyes of £he Forest service are upon you, protecting you and your parly. These are Die words Forest Ranger Paul w. Slalhem of Sequoia National Forest used in describing Hie vigilance with which the forest service maintains an extremely liigh average In suppressing fires In National Forest areas. The chief duty of the forest ser.'ice It; to fight lire, Stathem ex- ilained. With that end in mind, it ras perfected an elaborate but effective suppression, with the result 'hat last year fire burned less than 1 per cent of the acreage protected by forest rangers. In the early days of the forest service, it was necessary to depend almost entirely upon cooperation from the people both for discovering ami suppressing a fire, the ranger said. \ More People, More Fires As means of transportation became rapid, move hours of leisure were available to the average man, and use of national forests increased greatly. As a result, the number of mah caused fires Increased rapidly, he declared. How many persons know just low the forest service goes about protecting Us millions, of acres from fire? Here In Slathem's words, Is the answer: "As you build your evening fire, the forest lookout knows that yon are occupying that particular campground,"-and he also knows here are no other fires to bother you. But let one stray wisp of smoke come from another section of (he forest, and within a minute or two, Ihq phone to the local dispatcher's office Is carrying the nessage. "The dispatcher in turn is get- ing the nearest crew on the >h'onc, and within three or four ninutes from the time.the lookout' first saw the smoke, a trained liian, ilonc or with a crew, is on his way o investigate. During a short per- od of time he has learned how iig' the lire is, how fast II is burn- :iif. what kind of forest, cover the irea, and many other items essential for control of that par- iciiliir fire in (lie shortcut, possible hue. . Men Quickly Recruited "As the guard started for .the ' Ire, i the dispatcher a'so was sehdt iig hnoth'er'inaii to J his station to t;md by for any other possible •morgeiioy. He*, must know :on a ninutc's notice.-ivliere lie 5 can gath- r perhaps 300 mei(,-liow lie'can 'ft'them to the fire in the short- st possible time, and."how soon he air feed them.''- ••'- '.' •'• '• v "On the other end of the ijqb, he (ire boss has arrived and'pian- icd just how this particular:; fire an be suppressed, how many ''men t will lake and how long a vill be. He also must determine ow the fire was started and what ction he must take to insure the afety of other people In the for- ;t. • ' "All these jo'us must be correlat- d to the highest possible degree, s .failure on the part of any one lan will greatly lessen the chance f keeping the fire confined to a mall acreage. The job of fire con- rol in a national forest is a most omplex one, calling for the best (forts of every man involved."
