When the Giants righted Ihem- selves and ran off tour straight In the west, including I'.vo in it row from tile-Rods, a few of Die die hards thought the Terr/men might have a shot al a miracle if Cincinnati really got. panicky and wont haywire. Bui It's all over now as far as the Giants are concerned. > Stoneham, who new west to Join the Giants, Is discussing Joe Mcd- wlck of tlie Cardinals in a cautious, guarded way as a pessibilily for the Polo Grounds in 1940. The Giants cotild use him, but when Stoneham talks about getting in the bidding for Medwlck, if and when the Cards' star is placed on the market, he is talking about outbidding Phil Wrigley, Cubs' millionaire owner. On the basis of their past performances in spending cash, the Ciants won't get n second call over In bidding for a high-priced player. Already the.Giants have lost interest in two minor leaguers— Dcmlnic DiMagglo of Sau Francisco and Herman (Aunt) Bcsse of Memphis—when they heard about the price tags. , Pittsburgh further discouraged the Giants' Idea of getting tack in the pennant scramble yesterday by .winning n 11-innlng game, 3-2. The Giants' strategy in walking Pep Young, nn eighth place hitter, led to their downfall.

AUGUST 5,-1939 Elitch Is Next Foe Of Mike Nick Elitch, New York heavyweight who has performed in the local arena several limes durum Die past year, will again show his wares here Monday night when lie meets the arrogant Armenian, "lind Mike" Nazcrion. The scuffle will be the feature match on the regular weekly wrestling match sponsored by Hie American Legion post. Last week Nnzorian's stock took a decided jump when he defeated Charles "Cry Uaby" Sinkey. the Mississippi menace, in a decidedly rough battle before n near-capacity crowd of excited fans. This was one of Hie few limes Ihe big Corinth performer lias been flattened here in the past two or three years. Elitch's biggest asset is his ability lo endure a lot. of punishment which Nazcrlan is more than capable of giving. Elitch has a number of good holds nml has given creditable performances against most opponents lie has met here, but Just how he will fare against the somewhat heavier Armenian remains lo be seen. Another momentous struggle on the card will be that between George Bennett of Sail Luke City, ant! Buck O'Neil, a newcomer here. Giants' Football Star To Coach High School ASHLAND, Pn.

While the final report makes no ellort lo establish just how much planning should lie undertaken it •seeks to establish a basis of Die amount of land that should be devoted lo agriculture if farming to be, kept on a profitable basis. Some Idea of the loss that has been incurred through lack of scientific land-use planning in California alone is revealed in the 'act, the report cites, thai during he past 10 years 300,000 acres of fruit trees and grape vines, cosi- ng from $100 to $400 an acre to establish' have been abandoned and Hie end is not yet in sight. The elements that will have to guide future land-use planning throughout the United Slates, the report says, arc population growth and movement; nutritional and recreational well-being; diminishing; productivity of the soil, and outlook for international trade. Need Acres Estimated From the standpoint of food needs, the report finds that with an estimated Deputation of 131,000.000 in the United States in 1010, nn adequate diet for a family of loxv income would necessitate 230.000,000 a'cres of agricultural land. For families of medium income this total might rise to 286,000,000 acres of productive land. This means, the report holds, that the low income class would need 1.78 acres per capita and the medium income group, 2.22 acres. Tlie lower cost diet, it points out. would include relatively more potatoes and wheat while the medium cost diet would include more fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs and fruit. With the advent of -shorter working hours and the increased travel facilities, the report finds it will be necessary in land-use I planning- lo consider Ihe amount of land that will be set aside for rcc- rcntlonnl facilities, especially in the forest and bcacli Goynor-A'drian of agricultural products nnd to feed farm animals used In iinnludw tliem. By 1933, however, the lolal number of acres required hud dropped to 40,000,000. "Unless we can revive inlwnn- tional trade," the report say s "certain areas must make great changes In the uses made of their lands. About a fifth of the v:heal crop over half of lite cotton' and nbout half of Hie dried fruit crop have ROIIC into export outlets "Since the international 'irndc cannot, continue on a 'sell but do not buy basis' the outlets of thrsc products arc definik'ly related io o«r tariff policy." A few other elements which will have to be taken into consideration in arriving on a plan for i a , V |. use planning will lie that of a lone or short period over wlilcli UK' planning should extern!; the rate al which present trends arc likely lo change, and the nature of various economic forces that must affect the entire situation. - Janet Gaynor, with her hirj r all done up in style, looks very mature here as contrasted with the lilllc-girl roles she has so often taken in the movies. She's dancing at a party at Hollywood's Trocadero with Adrian, drcss- designor for many movie stars. well as parks, for camping, hunting and fishing. The other most Important element in land-use planning, the report says, will be the foreign trade The United States,-it insists, must not only take into consideration Us own needs but those of other countries as well. Export Requirements Sludied The report finds that in 1923 more than 84.000,000 acres were required to produce the net export Sound Movies Called Aid in Eye Correction BOSTON (UP)~^Sound movies were the most Important factor in developing cures for children's crossccl-cycs and dimness of vision resulting from disuse, according io Dr. Theodore BromlMcli of th*' Polycliuic hospital in Snn Francisco.
