And no major league-manager has ever had more tough breaks than Dykes, not excepting Bill Terry and his present predicament. If tears were allotted per player hurt or rendered hors dc combat, during Dykes' regime as compared with' Teriy's, the Giants' boss couldn't, even work .up enough moisture to gel a crying towel. Dykes' lecoid of tough breaks reads like something that hap pened orphan boy, but no one ever heard of the White So> manager locking himself behind doors and pleading for privacy .Dykes takes his : Iuck as he finds It and iiiakes : the most of it. And he also .lakes the ball players he gets .and does what he can with them.

(UP) — Comes today n courier disguised >s a press agent with breathless information about Tony Oalento's latest venture In fisticuffs. In Atlantic City on Sunday, in n ring on the million dollar plei, Galento will fight an elephant and a kangaroo. The press agent made aii affidavit- to that cllcct and who ani'''l to dispute the orderly processes of the law. Contracts for the boul^ signed I" the city zoo, call for a fight to the .finish and stipulate! that Cialento must engage the kangaroo nnd (he etcpimnl ul the same time. "They're a coiipla bums," Gn- Icnto said at tho signing. "Both of 'em." "• ; Cautioned aguinst belittling his opponenls, especially the elephant, I who has a memory like Joe Louis and never forgels, Tony snorted: "Let him star t Ih'rovvlng h i s weight' around if he wants to. I'll knock his trunk olf. And as for that kangaroo,'I'll Just clip him a couple in the pouch and Mattel) him. They can't take it downstairs, those kangaroos." Gnlenlo, whose slgr.hur lo light the animals marks the first time that the Darwinian 'theory has been thrown into complete reverse, sees his fight with the kangaroo and the elephant as the first step lo- vvard the heavyweight championship of the jungle. After knocking' them out he wants lo work through, the puma, panther and tiger weight classes and, finally,' challenge the lion. "Who has the llou ever licked?" he wants to know. ''What iiglit has that big bum lo go aooul popping off that he Is the king ot the bensls? I'll spot him the first bite and then punch his mane off." Galento may be tnkiiig his bout, of Sunday lightly, but the kangaroo and the elephant aren't.

The elephant has been doing roiul work daily and plans to weigh in at about 15,000 pounds, his best fighting weight. The elephant has confided to inlhrmtes that he will come out trumpeting, force Galento into n corner and Llisn sit on him. He won his last two fishis with this technique, beating a Mack truck that got in his way In two rounds, and a telephone pole lhat annoyed him in throe. If this falls to work the clephimt plans to squirt n trunkful of water In Tony's eyes ami ihcn come In close to finish him oil with his Insks in a clinch. The bout with Galento is the elephant's first professional fieht. But he was a .standout amateur in Africa where lie won the Golden Tusks championship of the Belgian Congo 111 a four day fight with a teakwood forest. The kangaroo Is counting on his puzzling style to bring him victory. That, and a straight right leg that he throws with paralyzing force, and tremendous speed.

FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1939; Victim Jokes Over Plight As Body Tunis To Stone GREEN BAY, Wis. (UP)-Jack Van Schyndle Is a "blockhead" by Ms own admission. When visitors see. him at the Si. Vincent hospital he dares them to turn liU head. They try and fail. Van Schyndle's head Is as solid as a rock, to fact, It | s becoming rock. Van Schyndle Is- slowly becoming petrified _ victim cf a creeping disease which has puzzled physicians. They have progressed little beyond classifying a with a long Latin name — "myosllls ossldcan >rogressiva." Despite ills position among the 'anks of the living dead Van Schyndle has a cheerful mien and in untroubled philosophy. He :oml)lncs this with a macabre wit is Is illustrated by his request to .ry moving his head. When efforts tall, he remarks: "I am a true blockhead." The only external organs the 'man of stone" is able to mave ire the voluntary muscles whlcli control the eyes, mouth, wrists and fingers. Says Health's li.\-wlle;ii However, Van Schyndle boasts .hat he has excellent health He isserts: "I haven't had a stomach ache ir ether nclu! during the past few 'ears. r i1he doctors and •.nurses held ie to n fruit diet for a \vhile, but t didn't seem to help; so since hen IJ've eaten lots of everything. "My last pill went down the latch on Jan. 13, 1931." The patient's blcod stream is lepcsUIng layer after layer of cal- -Itmi in place of tissues. Doctors ay lie will die when the hardening process strikes a vital organ, and hey give him only a few years, at nost, to. live. Van Schyndle has been suffer- ng from the disease for 22 years ))d has spent more than 13 years n the hospital. When the ailment vas noticed in 1914, he went to Montana in nn unsuccessful effort o halt its spread. Oiio of the most astounding things about Ihls man is Uiat he manages to earn a living. He does It by knitting sweaters, pillow covers, doilies and similar objects. His stock Is then placed on a movable stand and the patient Is wheeled out into the hall to sell his wares lo other patients. Included among objects on his stand are religious pieces, nnd in these he does a brisk trade Uses. Hand Loom Vim Sehyndle 1ms fashioned a miniature hand loom on which lie ,i works. He also has taught another bedridden patient, Louise E. Keje- dlo, BO, Green Bay, to knit. "Louis helps me In 'making ihe gocds," Van Schyndle said, "He's kind of a crocheting partner. "We have regular knitting bees but we get done faster than the women folks." With the nld of long-handled knives and forks, the patient Is able to eat his meals—which are as large as the normal pers:n consumes—without assistance except for drinking (ea or coffee. "There used to be pillows on my bed," Van Schyndle relates unhcs- UiiiHly bringing out facts about his strange life, "but they were a nuisance, as I ciuldn'i /eel them anyway; so they were taken off." Vnn Schyndle's constant cheerfulness and pleasant philosophy are the admiration of ihe nurses. This man who is slowly turning into stone also has a tip for the tired business mnn who can't take time oil for an extended vacation "Go to a hcspital," he recommends. And adds: "In a hospital, there's plenty of quiet, rest, massages, diets and steam baths."

(UP)—The towns of Sydney and Truro have officially recognized the sport, ot roller- skating. The Sydney town council, seeking to keep children from the streets, voted to.take over the concrete floor of a large, unused fertilizer plant, install lights and convert it into a roller-skating playground.

At the same time, they voted to prosecute skaters who endangered their lives on the town's concrete highways.
