(UP)-Tlie question before (lie house Is: "Arc the Yanks tottering?" , The Yanks will Invade the West In their most precarious position this sensrn. They have just lost five In a row to the Red Sox, and eight out of their last 11 games. Their American League lead has melted trom 12',!. games to 6V-. Their pitching and hitting went sour at the same time. Against the Red Sox, they averaged x>nly 22-5 runs per game as compared with their seas.n's average of nearly s\L. The Yanks have had only three pitchers, Bump Hadley, Steve Sundra, and Alley Donald, go the route ,_and win since July 1. ,Tlielr aces, Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez and Monte Pearson have bogged down in their latest efforts. , The Yanks' showing In the All- Star game, in nhlch Ruffing pitched a creditable three Innings and Selkirk, Gadcn and DlMnggio drove in all three ' of the American League's runs may give the world champions a lift. Donald, the spectacular rookie who ' has won 10 straight games without defeat, has been named to fare the Tigers in the Yanks' open- Ing game today In tlie West. Buck Nesisom, v,ho glories in lacing me Yanks, will oppose Donald. Last time Buck hurled against the Yanks they beat him, 1-0. The National League returned to ccmpetitiin last night when the Pittsburgh Pirates blanked the Brooklyn Dodgers, 3-0, and handed Whit Wyatt his first National League defeat belore 29.481 at Eo- D<)u.s Field Mace Brown, used chiefly for relief roles, started lor the Bues and doled out sk scattered hits. Uosd Waner's douole, Arkle Vaughan's Infield hit, Johnny RIM.'S sacrifice fly and Klein's sinjle were coupled in the first Inning for two runs. Lloyd Waner's tecona double in the seventh dicve the Pirates' other run home. It was the third time Bro»n had started this year, and his fourth vlct-ry. T '~0 Wnl|n--J T,o a o"i In^-l—i; the' Reds and Giants, will tangle m a uuee-gtune scuts at tna Fulo Grounds, .vriUi Bucfcy Wallers, wno has notchcS 13 victories, and Manuel Salvo, who has won only four games'but who has beaten Cincinnati twice, facing each other on the mound. Less ot Ival Goodman, Reds' hardest-hitting outfielder, as a result of his all-star game injury, has robbed Cincinnati of some of its puncn. Goodman, nursing a dislocated shoulder, 'will be out two •weeks.'-His place «111 be taken t>y Nino Bongiovannl against right- handers ana by Frencn Hordagaray against southpaws. Yesterday's hero: Mace Brown, Pirate relief hurler, who darted last night and blanked the Dodgers with six hits. BASEBALLJTAND1NGS Northeast Arkansas League W. L.

Dr. Colin said neo - neutrality "places no limitations or conditions" upDii the'type war it opposed- nnd that' it was "not concerned" with the question of aggression or defense but merely with tlie "guilt" of the warring nations. Vast Differences Stressed "The differences between traditional neutrality and nee-neutrality are thoroughgoing," Dr. Colm said. "Traditional neutrality relied upon 'tlie two principles of unconditional state sovereignty and of noii-inter- vention. Its natural consequences were passivity nnd impartiality. These ctnseriuences were made the legal conditions for its recognition , and continued existence and -were at the same time thc means by which it could be enforced. Passivity and impartiality were thus the basic elements of both the law of neutrality and c-f neutrality jxilicy. They did not, however, sonstitute the real substance of neutrality and this point has often been overlooked or tnisundcrsto:d. Tlie essential fimclicn of neutrality wns to keep .the neutral country out of war, or more broadly stated: tu isolate and restrict war to'the belligerents. "Neo-neutrality has to some extent the same goal as had traditional neutrality but pursues it with greater energy,..nUrulsm nnd consistency under thc legal situation which is characterized by the polit- Icnl s:lidarlty of thc states and the right of collective Intervention. Passivity and impartiality must yield ,to an active and common front, t Equal regard for the rights of both ' belligerents nnd for their motives yields in neo-neulrnllt,y. and equal disregard for those of war In nil Its forms, regardless of thc motives or causes alleged for it. In this sense we may still urge a certain impartiality toward the belligerents. But this impartiality is only to be based up;n an equal disqualification of whr and need not express itself !n identical treatment of the two par- tics."
