For instance, last season only one boy in more than 60.000 suffered a permanent disability and there were only three deaths In U.S. high school football, with more than 200,-000 boys playing the game. Bruises represented 28 per cent of the total injuries. Fractures were second with 22 per cent and sprains were third with 19 per cent. Broken arms were the most common of all fractures, hands were Becoml and ribs third. Bill Drain was fatally Injured In a practice session .Monday and died yesterday. But practice sessions are much less dangerous than competitive play. Only 30 per cent of the Injuries studb'd occurred In practice and the remainder In regular games. -fir' - .

The Yanks clung to the top rung with a stirring 7 to ft decision over the fighting Boston Red Sox yesterday, the contest going 12 Innings. Meanwhile, the St. Louis lirowns dropped out of a first-place tie with a loss to the Chicago White Sox, 9 to 5, leaving the Brownk a game Off the pace, with the threatening Detroit Tigers another half-length behind. Lose Lead Throe Times The Yankees lost the lead to the Red Sox three times before they rammed over two runs in the twelfth. The rally was started by Hershel Martin when he hit first ou an error by Jim Bucher and raced home on singles by Johnny Lin dell and Nick Etten. Oscar Grimes' double then polished off the Red Sox. Or did it? The Red Sox, in their half of the wild twelfth, had the bases filled with none out when the hard-working Jim Turner stepped on the Yankee mound and stopped the Sox cold on a foul and a double play roller to Etten. Turner thus was credited with the win and Red i Barrett, who relieved Joe Bowman in the tenth, was tabbed for the defeat. . Dietrich Winn from Hrowns Bill Dietrich, who has been shoved around this season, vindicated himself when he not only allowed the Browns just seven hits in pitching the White Sox to victory, but belted out a homer in the third inn- intr A Miner Rnh Mlllicrif f fullered By Jack Sonfs' ' cApeeo (4as Mad PBgVioUs HHill SCHOOL FOOTBALL South Bend Central, 15; Washington of East Chicago, 7.

Idaho and Washington, returning to the campaign platform September 18 with another major speech at Seattle. Wash. Governor Dewey, for the most part, confined himself to a sober and unique plea thai the two major parlies keep peine above politics in 1 1 1 , Louisville lull:. Only through a nou-piiiilsaii appioafh to the shaping of u peace structure, he empha-flz-J, o.iti American achieve unity or mi.poHi. and only lth unity of purpose can America "exercise the lnll;i"iire lii the world for which its real strength has equipped It." Governor Dewey said he believes the primary responsibility for disarming Germany and Japan rests with the Allied "Dig Four"; that the people as well as the leaders of Japan and Germany must be taught that war does not pay and that the "criminals'' of Germany and Japan, wiio mistreated war prisoners, minorities and conquered peoples, must be dealth with "promptly, justly an drelentlessly." Deny Oeriuan industry The Republican nominee, already on record for internationalizing the entire Rhur, said it may be necessary to deny Germany an aviation industry of her own for years after the war. He considers it probably necessary to have a commission, responsible to the victors, which will supervise the disarmament of Germany and keep her disarmed. , The world organization for peace must not be shaped by one mind,7'1 or three or four men, .but. by...;spm , sixty nations, great and small. Governor Dewey said. He reported gen-, erall agreement on the Idea of 'ay'' general assembly, composed of all peace-loving nations, and a smaller . council, with the large nations serving thereon and smaller nation? through selected representatives. Eliminate Ticking of Watch , To eliminate the monotonous ticking of a watch in a sick room and still enable the patient to see "the time," place the watch on a folded napkin on the bedside table and cover it with an inverted glass. Origin of 'Hack' Hack is an abbreviation of the word hackney, which was originally a riding-horse from the French ha-quenee, an ambling horse or maret especially for ladies to ride.

S. Army from the north were operating. A junction between the two armies from northern and southern France was anticipated shortly. On the American right flank, French elements of the Seventh Army crashed through enemy opposition in violent battles near Le Vald-ahon and captured the Alpine town of Pontarlier, 30 miles southeast of Besancon. The French mountain troops con tinued their advance beyond tnat town, their drive through the Jura Alos along the Swiss frontier pre senting a mounting threat to the Nazis retreating from Besancon. On the western wing of the eastern French front, other tank-Buppor-ted French troops drove beyond liberated Alleray, north of Chalons-Sur-Saone and' were reported within 25 miles Bouth of the six-way communications center of Dijon.

Fall of the city was considered imminent. Nine Miles Awey (The Algiers radio said that American spearheads already were scarcely nine miles from Belfort, thus opening the battle for the highly-important escape funnel through which the Germans are seeking to fall back to the lower end of the Siegfried line.) The Yanks, driving for Belfort which controls access to the strategic mountain pass, advanced 26 miles northeast to hammer their way into the western, southern and eastern outskirts of Besancon which lies only 47 miles southwest of Belfort. Flanking Move Ileelns While the triple-pronged offensive was thrust into the railway and highway hub. other United States forces of Lieut. Oen. Alexander M. Patch by-passed the town on the east and pushed north more than seven miles closer to the Belfort valley. The flanking move may trap thousands of the German 19th Army's troops before they can reach the Siegfried line fortifications in lower Germany. Gen.
