SHE MUST A UTTLE RUN OUT AND ORDERING V emy at a critical phase in the battle of Europe, lor despite apparently well thought out plaiiB of the enemy to intercet the fighters, the prior planning and excellent lender- ship of the fighter group outwitted the enemy, and the mission was completed with execellen! success without loss to the American fight era oi bombers. Conversely. 14 of (he enemy Interceptors were shot down In the several enemy attacks. Beginning with fighter sweeps over Noithrrn France In 194 2, and subsequently flying all types of fighter missions throughout the Algerian, Tunisian, Sicilian. Corsican and Italian campaigns, the group has established an outstanding record, destroying over 300 enemy air-c.-alt and probably destroying and damaging many others. In dive-bombing attacks, 38 enemy ships were sunk or severely damaged and communications amruptea over wiae areas of occupied Europe. Shortly after changing to the P-51 Mustang from the Spitfire they had been flying the group established a theater record in Bhooting down over 100 enemy planes in 30 days.

If Cardinals vs Drowns. 2 to 1 in Cardinals. If Cardinals vs lied, .Sox, 6 to 2 on Cardinals. Cai-diiiHls Art inch It is apparent from these odds that the hookies believe the Cardinals are a cinch no matter which American Leamie team they meet. We have heard that the bookies were fcoing to make the Cardinals at least 3 to 1 over anybody but don't boliuve that fairytale The bookies are often out of line, on their prices but they are not saps enough to quote such a price on a Bhort series where anything can bap-pen and usually does. 'Sure Thiim-s" Not You have only to look up your baseball history to see what has happened to some of the so-called "sure things" in world series play. The Cubs of 1908 were one of the great teams of all time with Tlnk-ers-Evers and Chance on the infield and Mordecai Brown and Big Ed Ruelbach on the firing line. They had won 116 games during the season. They were a lead pipe cinch to win the big series. But what happened? The White Sox, known with justification as the hitless wonders, proceeded to pin their ears back. Connie Mack's Athletics of 1910 another wonder team also were "unbeatable." They had the then famous $100,000 infield of Stuffy Mclnnis, Eddie Collins, Jack Barry and Frank Baker, backed by an all-star pitching staff. And what happened to them? The Braves, with Tyler, Rudolph and James, operating on the hill, knocked off the Mackmen in four straight games. Good I'it.Iiei-s 'liange Game There are 'lis sure things in hase-ball, especially in a short series. One or two pitchers, working their best, might beat any team. Remember what the Dean brothers, Dizzy and Paul, did in one series. Remember, too, how Christy Mathewson once pitched three victories in a world series. And how Babe Ruth, then a young pitcher with the Red Sox, set a record that still stands by pitching 29 scorelss Innings in a world series. If the Tigers win the American League pennant, Diz Trout and Hal . Newhouser might pitch them to vic tory over the Cardinals without any-other pitching help. Who knows but what Diz or Hal would be as successful against te Cardinals as Ducky WalterB of the Reds has been all year.

Peterson, County agent, an nounced Monday. He added that the pods should be Inspected carefully by the pickers to make sure the seeds on the pods have turned brown and the pods have opened. The county agent warned students that every pound of floss in the county should be gathered and added that "every pound lost may mean that some American sailor or soldier will be forced to abandon ship without a life jacket." Those interested in picking can obtain empty bags from the principal of their high school. As soon as possible after the bags are filled they should be hung in the open to dry. If the pods are packed in a tight box or thrown in a heap in a building, they are likely to molk very quickly ajid spoil the floss. A simple way of hanging up bags is to tie the tops of two together and saddle them over a fence. On barbed wire fences, single bags may be hook ed on the barbs. Bags of pods should he left out until they are thoroughly dry. This procedure usually .takes three r four weeks, Mr.1. Peterson explained ir.or ih have dried the haes may be taken inside for storage with-. out danger of spoiling. Highway trucks will assist in the drive and will pick up the bags of pods when (he time comes for them to be stored. Not only school children, but other n,, as well are urged to aid in the drive. A small sum will be paid to the pickers for eack bag they turn in by the War Hemp Industries, Inc., Mr. Peterson said.
