"Guess he'll have to. if Coclnane doesn't," replied the American League baiting champion. It is easy to see that the Tiger' regulars are not exactly sold on York as a catcher.

The tall dealer ot El Darado has not .vet cut loose. Arms that go lame seldom come back, however, and iherc is doubt in .Howe's mind. . "I'd pitch this entire season for nothing if I'thought my arm would be.all right," lie says. Howe's return to form would give the Tigers five pitchers capable of . taking the outfit any distance. The others are Tommy Bridges. EUlcn . Auker, Kennedy, and Roxie Lawson. Backing them tip are Dools Poffenbeiser. George Gill. Slick Coflman. anil the southpaw ,!:ikc Wade. Rookie Has the Shiff There are 17 pitchers on the premises. Of the newcomers. Joe Ro^iilski and Ed Sehvwy. right- handers, appear the more promising. ; After starring in the Northern League, the 22-year-old tJogalski who weighs 187 pounds am! stands six feet two. moved to the Bengals' Beaumont farm, where lie won 17 and lost 0. He has control mid a deceiving knuckle ball, and docs not try lo pour the pill past hitters. He comes up with (lie enviable reputation of possessing plenty of courage in tigiit spots. Oddly enough. Selway. who .is attracting attention, lias no record to speak oi although he has been at it professionally since 1D:I2 Tulsa turned him out into Ilie cruel world when his arm went on the Fritz last term, and lie was picked up by Port Worth in time to cop two nnd lose one.

Christnun Being Up Third York has too much power to be left on the bench even if he doesn't catch. So the vast Indian and Hank Greenbcrg and Gehringer again will be the heavier Detroit cannon.

NIES & NIES Victim Of-M isfort u ne Brands Requests For Deallis As "Selfishness" Ily NBA Krrvlri- CLARKSBURG, W. Va.. March M.—When Earl D. Darling, heart disease victim of Liverpool. N. Y., announced that he wanted physicians lo administer "mercy death" to end his .suffering, he made Miss Phyllis Oiirdy downright mad. ifcrsi'lf n victim of misfortune which might have broken the spirit of a,less courageous person, Miss Drudy branded us "selfish" nnd request for death, regardless of the resons. Miss Drudy's outburst c a m e after Darling, who Jjiis sutTeml Ihe torture of BO successive attacks nnglnii iiectorls, put forth a plan by which physicians could bring merciful death to victims ol incurable diseases. He suggested lhat three physicians eacli give him a hypodermic, only one of which would be deadly, so that no one would k'now by whose hand clealh came. In nti open letter to Darling, Miss Dntdy retorts: "Isn't your demand tlie most :olossally selfish anyone could nake? ^. "Undoubtedly, because you are .ircd of suffering, your mental scope has diminished. It is ob- .'ious, from your demand Hint the jliysiclans ninrder you, that you lave lost all sense of fairness" In roue selfish anxiety to be relieved. Otherwise you would not pass the nick lo those men lo whom God 'ias given the desire and ability to ireserve life. "You ask Ihem lo turn their backs on God and their profession, and destroy life! You ask hem lo ruin their lives, blast their jrofesslons for one man, that lie nay be made comfortable. "Dust off Hie banners of your courage. Mr. Darling, fly Ihem ligh! Remember, it is Ihe nmn who never gives up who writes his lame on history's pages and in he hearts of the world. "Carry on!' 1 It is not lack of sympathy which set Miss Drndy lo writing those vords. For she, loo, has had her share ol misfortune. Her father died just before her birth. At 17 she started for New. York with lothing but $11.15 and 'her courage. She landed n Job on a Now York paper, but after a few noiiltis of Hint she created one for Herself writing and producing plays hi dramatic schools. Reluming to her home here. she. :ciime a bookkeeper with ' the Clarksburg Exponent, and t.'iught swimming and riding in her spare time. After a few eorrespowk'iice- colirse lessons, she opened a dance •studio which was Immediately successful. Last summer her back was broken in an accident. As she lay in 'he hospital, convalescent, plein-isv developed. But that couldn't keep her down Denied her usual work, she wrote loelry, n nd one of her first efforts Is in a current magazine "f couldn't make rhythm with my feet, so I niacJe it with my pen" said the indomitable Miss Dnuly! And now she tells Mr. Darling and all oilier proponents of the •mercy death." lhat "so long as •here Is breath in our bodies, it i.s lot too lule lo do a right-abonl- 'ace!"

Strive To Spur Diversification By Livestock, Chicken Purchases Mississippi county farmers'prac- tice diversification, but the trouble is Jhere is just not enough of them doing it, according to the county extension agents, who are rencw- id hogs c farms in Hie county. are 4,201 families who have one time and so those wlio do not have money enough to erect burglar-proof poultry houses are reluctant to raise chickens. Many hogs arc also stolen and this'' lias Hies, have no chickens. These figures arc appalling, the county agents say, and it was these facts, disclosed in a recent census. which started new impetus among this phase of the extension work. The principal reason why more farmers do not have chickens is because of the ivholesale theft of poultry.-parmcrs have had as many as several hundred liens stolen at Jimmie and Janet, of Hermitage, are visiting in the dome of Mrs. Fletcher's parents.

Many farmers j say they do not have cows because they do not Inivc money enough at one time to purchase them One plan to have .cows, pigs nnd chickens on all farms is the de- fer^cd payment ulnn, which the Chamber of commerce of Blj ville is sponsoring this year for chickens and hogs. This plan is so popular that although Ihe chamber of commerce agreed lo furnish baby chicks to 400 people, there were more than 1,000 applications. Tiiese chicks are sold at eight and a half cents each and the money is repaid in tlie fall, with eight per cent interest, and tlie only stipulation is that the chickens must be shown in Ihe county fair. The remaining 000 are without chickens. The group hus been able to only purchase 40 pure-bred gills, to' be resold lo farmers at the prevailing market prices, with tlie -same interest as for the chickens. There ivere more than 108 applications for these. • • l : The poultry project is bebig pushed as a means of-making cash' during (he summer aionths as chickens and eggs are-never very cheap In Blytheville and the price for fryers is always enough that the farmers can realize money for their trouble. Is 'Die belief' of the agenls. Indiana believed that a walpec! man could never enter the Happy Hunting Ground, the red man : s iicaven. By scalping all his vtc- '1ms. he assured himself (hat these earthly enemies would not bother iltn later on. Poison ivy and poison oak are H the same, although often they arc confused. The former Is prevalent in Canada nnd the eastern states, while the latter is rare ex- ce l)t in the southern slales.
