The 33-year-old typist from San Diego, Calif., was timed unofficially in one hour, 15 minutes. The widest point across the 1V£ mile Bosphorus was chosen in order that the test "would not be too easy" for Miss Chadwick who has gained an international reputation as a long distance swimmer. Miss Chadwick has conquered the English Channel twice and on Sept. 20 swam the channel of the Straits of Gibraltar, famous for its tricky currents. She next plans to swim the Hellespont, now known as the Dardanelles, about Oct. 7 or 8.

Four box seat tickets seized from scalpers never were used. They are still in a city court safe to be used as evidence. "Zerome" and "Zerex" Anti-Freeze Week October 12 io 17 R. W. Miller of P. & M. Accessory Co., the distributor of the Du Pont anti - freeze products, "Zerone" and "Zerex", today re. vealed plans for the promotion of Anti-Freeze Week (October 12-17) in this area. The plan, said Mr. Miller, calls for car owners to make appointments during Anti-Freeze Week to have their vehicles readied for the' rigors of winter driving. By taking this early action, the motorists will gain protection against the possibility of being caught unprepared by an unexpected drop in the temperature which might damage his car's motor. And, since early servicing does away with the usual jamup that packs service stations and garages at the time of the first freeze, the dealer is able to give more and better service to his customers. Mr. Miller pointed out: "It is never too early to install antifreeze, but it can be too late. It's too late when the engine block, or other parts, are damaged because of a lack of anti-freeze in the cooling system." He went on to say: "The purpose of Anti-Freeze Week is one of public service—to get car owners to do something that will help themselves. That is, have their car's cooling systems flushed and install anti-freeze early, before the last- minute rush. Motorists aren't asked to spend any more money than they usually do, but are encouraged, for their own benefit, to get their cars winterized early. Drop around now and see a dealer flying the "Anti-Freeze Week" streamer, and let him get your car in shape for the rugged winter days ahead."—Adv. leader with a 2.10 mark. Spahn allowed 62 earned tallies in 266 innings. He wtm 23 games and lost 7 (.767). Brooklyn's Carl Erskine was the. top man in winning per centage with .769, on a 20-6 record. Chicago's Billy Pierce was run ner-up to Lopat in the American League with a 2.72 ERA and Virgil Trucks, also, of the White Sox, was third at 2.93.

Montreal Seeks 4th Straight Over Blues KANSAS CITY W) — The Kansas City Blues tonight will be fighting to stave off a bit of humiliation no other team has suffered—losing four straight in the little world series. But their tormentors, the Montreal Royals, will be trying to add a little lustre to the Brooklyn organization dulled by the Dodger defeat in the World Series.
