(UP>—The atom is at 'cm ngtiinl Title Bltsy Grant, the tumblewccil cf tennis, blew Into Seabrlght and ' started upsetting the best laid plans of. Ihe mice and men who run the Untied Stales Lawn Tennis Assoclntlcn. Given no consideration as n Davis Cup possibility, thought to be well past whatever prime he ever had, the little giant resumed his giant killing by knocking oil Jack Crawford of Australia. He heralded this triumph by beating his little chest mid crying In a rich, s:uthevn accent: "No Australian ,has even 'beaten inc. I have won frcni them every time we met." This >wns something for the tennis fathers lo Ililnk about, nnd Iliey Admittedly don't, like to think nh:u|. Grant. They consider the llltlc Allantan's soft, pat-ball game, and his clown-like antles on the court, as not befitting the dignity | of International lawn tennis. ^ • The fact romains (hat Grant, at one time .or an:lher, has beaten all (he tennis greats cf his time. Or nt least all of them who crossed his path. He luis never held n better national title than Hint of the clny courls, yc-l. he is the man wlia can always beat Ihe mini who won the cup at Purest. Hills or Wimbledon.

Both of ^thcsc veterans like the slam bang 'gnmc, j 11( f nct smm , O j their critics claim that is the only stylo of wrestling they know. The referee will just be gclng along for the ride with -these toughlcs In the ring unless he tries to officiate In which ease It may turn out to be a very hnimrdciis ride. In u preliminary Mildred Burke, claimant of » world's wrestling title for women, will meet nn opponent billed ns the Tiger Woman. Machinist, 81, Wants To Cycle, Builds His Own CLEVELAND, O. (UP) - William C. llllchln, who has been "tinkering" for CO years und. who heliied build a "flying machine" 35 years ago, now has built a tricycle lor wheeling through his Slsl year. When lie came to Cleveland from England In 1881, trained machinists were so scarce he could almost name his own terms of employment. From that time until eight years ago, when lie was forced to retire because of n stroke which crippled his right side, Hitchln never was out cf work. "After my s.lckness," he said, "1 hnd to fix everything in my shop so that I could work it with my left linml or left foot. Then I got the idea that If I ccttlcl work n lathe with nvy left loot, I could )>edal a tricycle." All last winter Hitchln warkcil on the parts, and last spring with his daughter's help, he assembled the vehicle. One of Hitchin's favorite talcs b of the flying nmcliinc he helped build. "The thing hnd big air-scoops like the wheels cf a paddle steamer," lie said, "which were turned by n two-cylinder -steam engine. We tried il but, finally; but the best 1 il would (Is was to jump about four Inches into' the nlr." BASEBALL STANDINGS Northeast Arkansas League W. L. Pet.

In his size six shoes, mid his boys' department flannels, he has proved himself capable of walking tn the courl and .showing up any clay in the feet of any of the idols ncrcss the net from him. He beat Ellsworth Vines when the Cnllfornlnn was the No. 1 man In the world. He has conquered Donald Dildge, Adrian Quist, Jack Bromwich nnd even the groat Tilden. Yel one can never be sure of what Grant will d:< in a given situation. There are times when ho couldn't even beat you. (tear reader. if yen still serve the way Aunt-Maud taught you. Two years ago Grunt beat so many r.f the mighty that he was sent abroad on llic Davis Cup team. He flopped dismally, and had to be replaced by Frnnkie Parker, n chap whose record was not half as bright. That should have been the finish of the little fcllzw ns a L>avis Cup possibility, but it wasn't. He bounced back t: start, beating higher ranking players all over again, and today must be given serious consideration <\vhcn a cup defense squad is named. After all, the United States Is l.'oklug for men wh; can beat Australians. They arc the folk who are going to challenge for the Dnvls Cup we now h:ld. Bobby Riggs, Wimbledon chninpltn and our No. 1 player lias been beaten by members of the present Australian team. So have most of the ether American possibilities. But Ity United I'rcss "crucial" series between the Allanta Crackers nnd the Memphis Chicks developed today In nothing mere than n forlorn attempt on the part of the Crackers to whittle down the Tribesmen's Southern Association lend. Memphis' 9 to 0 victory In the series Inaugural last night left the Crackers four games back In sec- end place and without a chance to catch the Chicks In the remaining three games of the set. The Allantans came near to'be- ns shut"out 'Without a hit, as Ed Hcusser, on (he mound for Memphis, failed to surrender a blew until fcne was out In the eighth. Russ Peters finally connected for a single and another by Sperry In the ninth gave the Crackers a grand total of two hits. The Chicks hepped en Frank Oabter and sewed up the decision with six runs In the opening inning. Oscar Eekharcil had n perfect evening at bal, clouting three for three. The shawod of the Nashville Vols cast Itself on the upper-bracket clubs as the men of Manager Lnrry Gilbert mcvcd into third place en a 7 to G overtime decision over the New Orleans Pelicans. Nashville won the battle in the 12lh~ after a gruelling struggle in, which seven pitchers saw action. Dufens and Gilbert hit homers for the Vols nnd Campbell sccked one lor New Orleans.

SAN FRANCISCO,- July 25 (UP) —With between 4,000,000 nnd 0000,000 young people out of school and out of employment, Aubrey W, Williams, administrator of National Youth Administration, told the National Education Association here that Americans must reall/.e Hint this is n permanent nnd not a temporary situation. He declared that It was not merely a situation which hnd resulted from the depression as it was already in existence in 1930. "An examination of the figures In previous census returns for earlier . periods," he said, "makes it perfectly clear lhat unemployment of young people Is something that results from social and economic conditions which have apparently come to stay. "We nil know that a condition of life totally different from that which was encountered in earlier generations has come into existence. We all knov; that (here is no more free land, and that the so-called land frontiers are gone.' Compares 1730 anil 1830 "We knov/ that the average age of the population has been increasing with tlie result that competition for places In industry has steadily Increased. In TOO, for every 1,000 children under 1C, there were 872 adults over 20. In 1930, for every 1,000 children under 16. there were 2.013 adults ovcV 20. "We nil know we hnve Improved llic means of production so that vast numbers of people no longer arc needed in the production of food and goods." Williams declared thai actually tlie young people of the last seven nnd eight years have found themselves In a much more difficult situation than Hint which confronted their grandfathers. "When their grandfathers found themselves caught in the eastern cities, by low wages, desperate labor conditions nnd great unemployment," Williams said, "they could go out and find opportunity on tlie land. "But the grandchildren of the pioneers—the young people of the on-coming generation — can't go out and find new opportunities on unoccupied, land. They have lo stay in the cities and just take it." Williams frankly admitted- Hint he had no solution for the problem although a solution, 'he insisted, limst be found. > He had two suggestions for criu- cntprs which he fell would help in a marked degree. Urges Store School Years Tlie first of .these -wnsJTlhnl In view of the fact that people in the middle of life's spaiv should hnve the first call on employment, the period of education for youth should be lengthened KO that they would emer the labor market a little later in life and belter prepared. For Mils "rounded out" education, Williams insisted Hint the basic thing needed In addition to the courses now taught, was to give every young person a- training In manual work to increase manual discipline as. well as mental discipline. "It is wrong." lie declared, "to illow young people to grow up without the discipline that comes Trom Imposing exacting hours and iasks requiring completion—without the discipline that comes from 'he demand for precision and correctness. "Surveys." he said, "Jiad demonstrated that, oiie of the greatest landicnps to gelling n job under present day conditions is the lack of a trade." "It is imperative, however, lhat everyone grasp lhat there Is In our day n basically , changed local, state, national and world situation both as to content and daily living nnd ns to the way in which people must seek their several objectives in life," he declared.

Prune Beer Credited With Uniting Family PAIC1NES, Cal. (UP)—Prune beer reunited a California family that had separated 25 years ago in Germany and had lost all track of each ether for the past 12 years. Edward Klepper of this city had published m a Hollistcr newspaper a recipe he had prepared for the manufacture cf prune beer. The recipe eventually was'reprinted in a netvspaper at Leipzig, Germany.

She called Edward en the phone and a quick family reunion occurred and "Prcsit" drunk in prune beer. ItfcGREGOR, In. (UP)—Seven years of hunting snakes during 'iVhlch he lias caught as many »s 100 a day, have taught Larry kor- MCJ'I of McGregor that most popular beliefs about rattlesnakes 'ire fallacies. One snoi notion blasted by Keifiten is that n rattler's age can I lie told by the number of buttons on the rattle. The truth is, according to the reptile hunter, that rattlers grow a button every time they shed llieir skins and that Is tv.'o or three limes a year. Moreover, ihe buttons sometimes are lost. Kcrsten just laughs at the belief that n rattler.won't strike unless coiled. "The fact is," he said, "the snake assumes the shape of a letter s, then straightens out when :t strikes." Kersten began limiting snakes after an itinerant % catcher who makes n profession of taking rai- Uesnakc:! alive for icoos, gave him a few pointers. Early In the spring, preferably' (he first warm day, Kersten takes to the hills with a gunny sack, hravy glovtr and a pair of homemade tongs. He looks parlculavly for roek ledges or crevices, for it is there Hint the snakes come nut to lie in the sun. • Spotting a basking snake, or sometimes an entire family, he moves cautiously ahead. With the tongs he seizes a rattler just back of the head, snips out the poisonous fangs while il threshes madly about and' maneuvers it into the sack. "The snakes, won't bile through the jack because they are all tangled up and confused," Kcrste.i explained. He often keeps them on His form for weeks before turning them In for a bounty, lie has collected as jwicli as $700 a year in Oils manner. Jn captivity Hie snakes rcmso lo ent, .sometimes existing for four or five months without food. Kcrslen kept, no record of how many snakes he has captured, but estimates the number to be in ihe thousands. Jail Guest Successful In Prolonging His Visit MONCTON, N. B.
