Made by the exclusive Stetson Vita-Felt process for long-lasting resiliency. HARRY COFFEE STETSON HEADQUARTERS IN FRESNO AND BAKERSFIELD CUBS TO PLAY DELANOJIGERS 2-OUT-OF-3 "LITTLE WORLD SERIES" STARTS Although they met with only mediocre success in the second half, after playing through a brilliant, undefeated first-half baseball season, the Bakcrsfifld Cubs will "shoot the works" tonight when they meet the Delano Tigers at .S:_'0 in the first game of a two-uut-of-three "little World Series" at Sain Lynn Park. The Cubs will shove the great rubber-armed Deinaroe at the Tigers to Mart off the fireworks, with the cagey Fredericks—who coaches everything that is coal-liable in Delano and is regarded as somewhat of a miracle man, not only there, but elsewhere throughout the county —probably ready to counter with Klmer Kessler and K. Gregory. Derdivanis, one of the best curve ball pitchers in this area, will also he ready to go if Fredericks needs him. •lack Itroun Catching Dt'inarce, whose main trouble in the games he has worked has been a woeful lack of receivers, will be the remarkable Jack Brown who, in addition to being able to play every position on the diamond, can probably play three or four musical instruments and maybe a passable game of pool. Hrown can—and will—hold the terrific speed of Demaree. Spotted at strategic points on the infield for the Cubs will be Jim Rrown at first, Mi-Daniels at third. Liceaga at second and Parker at short. Jones. Walker and Wright will be patroling the outfield, reading from left to right—or Jones to Wright, if you want a very weak pun. Delano Lineup Delano will probably shove the same lineup at the Cubs that the Tigers fielded agninst 1/Minont Inst Saturday night when they won the last-half play-off 4 to H, with the exception of pitchers. We still think- that Klmer Kesvler will get the mound call to start the game. If we're correct. Cupp will be catching, Dixon will be at first. Keyes at second. Dixon at third and Xeff at short. Barton. Briggs and L. Gregory or Coria will be in the garden, also reading from left to right. These lineups are not official. We simply have a hunch they may be that way. We also have a hunch it will be a swell way to spend an evening. SPORTS Habersfielb Californian Wednesday, August 30, 1944 —U. s. M. C.

IU.0 — Knsign Sid Luckman will lead a revamped, unfamiliar sc|uad of Chicago Bears into Dyche Stadium before more than "ifl.OOO people tonight to meet the lfl-14 College All-Stars and their passing kingpin, Lieutenant Glenn Dobbs. Tonight's game, the Eleventh Annual all-star football classic, rises the curtain on the 1!M4 football season by matching Luckman against Dobbs and the pick of the nation's collegiate and service stars against the undermanned Bears, a vastly (hanged assemblage from flie powerhouse team which won the Xational Football League title last year. The Bears, entering their fifth All-Star game undefeated, have lost such linemen as Dr. Danny Fortmann. Lee Artoe, flay Bray and Hampton Pool, players who cleared the way for their T-styled victories. But Luckman, whose passing shaped those victories into championships, stijl is operating.
