ON THE RISE By Jack Sords Local Sailor Combines Writing, Fighting on LST in South Pacific t incize any manager who dared to call off an Jmortant game to benefit his own clubs. Still, the possibility and the legal loophole is there If anyone wanted to take advantage of it. s There were no games in the American League yesterday and the weather man postponed the Dodger-Braves and Keds-Clubs games. The Giants and Phils tried to play despite the rain but hud to quit at the eud of three Innings with the Phils leading, 2-0.

The "Having Report-ter" had a "blank space that needed filling up" when that was writ Matloon Scare Is Laid to Hysteria, War Plant Fumes MATTOON, 111. The question of whether Mattoon's "Mad Anesthetist" was a flesh and blood night prowler who sprayed sickening gas fumes into bedroom windows or merely was the figment of the hyn-terlcat imagination of the suppoued victims provoked a heated controversy toduy. Stale's Attorney William K. Kid-well took the lead in ridiculing the statement that there wus no an prowler and that the fumes came from the Atlas Imperial Diesel Engine Co. Works. Police Chief C. Eugene Cole and Capt. Harry Curtis of the stute police issued that statement yesterday after their joint investigation failed to produce any results. Prosecutor Kidwell said: "That is simply ridiculous. People working In the plant haven't been affected. Neither have people living in houses within 75 feet of it. "I still think there were some authentic gas cases which were the work of a prankster or someone with a more sinister motive." W. J.

At the end of his leave, he will report to Norfolk, Va. for further assignment to duty. The season must end October 1. If any team hasn't played its full schedule on that date, that's just too bad. No game can be played after that date unless two or more teams should finish in a dead heat for first place. iti -rAe AMgRicAM t,eA6oe "Most of the week was rather cool, with minimum temperatures from 40 to 45 degrees on two days; near normal temperatures prevailed during the latter part of the week.

Earlier Marshal Tito said his forces had liberated "the greater part" of Macedonia and are engaging Nazi troops driven from Bulgaria across the frontier. The German strongholds of Prilep and Krusevo Bron in Southern Macedonia and Orahovo in the eastern section of the province were reported captured. Tito's communique stated the Partisan forces have been "strengthened by thousands of new fighters," and have liberated 692 British prisoners of war on the Maribor-Celovao line in Slovenia. tween now and the end of the season and every effort will be made to play off postponed games. If the weather man is kind all games will be played; if .not, some teams will fail to play their full schedule. Good sportsmanship demands that all games be played if possible.
