It be- ongs to a half-dozen English sports writers who know their country and t« games. It Is common knowledge that English baoeball la chtafly backed by operators' of giant football pools and hat their Interest Is purely mercenary. Tho bottlnft operators consider lasoball to bo a perfect "plug" for he four months of May, Jtlne, July and August. Thoso are the only nonths In tho year In which foot mil, on which millions of dollars aro wagered, Is not played and thoy con stltute a dead loan for the pool 'own ors. They lose not only tho revonuo 'rom tho betters but also wages for tholr clerical staffs. Men and women who work In tho offices of tho jetting pools aro experts and can •iot bo replaced easily. As a result, thoy — and somo of the bigger pools employ thousands — must be kept on ho pay roll In Idlo months. Baseball offers the perfect solution and the hotting tycoons are roady to sink millions of dollars In It. Already thousands of pounds sterling havo been spent and spont In tho most effective channel — on the development of tho game among tho school children. Drive about London's suburbs und you will seo hundreds ot boys, ranging In ago from 9 to 18, playing the gamo with first class equipment. There aro several baseball leagues In tho city and their championship games this OM often drew crowds of moro than 13,000, which Is larger than many ot the throngs at tho big cricket matches. Up to now, coaching has boon rather haphazard, with anyone who knew tho sport welcome to como out and take a hand In training the youngsters. Plans, howovor, call for tho Importation of professional bill! players from America. Players who hnvo passed their prime In tho United H tut OB aro going to bo of frrnd substantial salaries to como over and tako chargo of them. As an added attraction, next year BOV cral star cricket players, notably Patsy Hcndron and Walter Ham mond, huvo boon offered contracts Hondren and Hammond aro just as celebrated over hero as Lou Oehrlg and I.)lK/.y Dean In America tint tholr preHenco on the diamond woulc luro thousands through tho turn allies. • Tho biggest lOngllsh booster o baseball Is Travor Wlgnall, snorts columnist of tho Dally Express am far and away the most widely read and Influential sports commentator In London. Wlgnall, who grow to like tho gamo In his frequent trips to America (ho has covered two world uorles), Is ono who thinks It Is certain to outdistance cricket In popularity In the near future. Cricket Is Dying "Cricket has been dying steadily for years and Is becoming moro and more a gamo for the upper classes and not the lower musses," Wlgnall told ma. "Once England finds out It can go to a baseball gamo and In three short thrilling hours got moro* excitement than In three full days' of tedious cricket, tho American sport will bo mado horo. And that day Is not far off." EFL JIM DAY TN THfi) London Dally Mirror A there Is a sports story written by Al Male, the lead of which runs an follows: "Pat»y Hendren and Maurice Tato, famous England test cricketers, are to turn baseball players. Hehdren, idol ot the Middlesex crowds for 30 years, 1ms agreed to sign professional baseball forms and will play for White City next season. Sweeping England "Baseball la sweeping the country. Thirteen thousand frtna watched West Ham and White City play at Woat Ham yesterday. The game has gripped the Imagination of boys as well as their parents. There are 80 boys' teams in Manchester alone and more than 200 boys' teams in tho country." Bo England is taking up baseball! Reason for Game Henry McLomore, United Press sports writer, in a signed story from London, says England is taking up baseball under the promotion of operators of giant foot' ball pools* who wish to have the crowds betting on a game during the summer months when toot- ball is not played. Baseball would and will fill the bill, according to the predictions ot English sports writers. Now. In England the sports writers are booming up the game. .Famous cricketers are playing It under hire, to attract the crowd interest. Suverkrop In England Low Suverkrop, Bakersneld engineer and geologist, probably reading tho same issue of the Daily Mirror that attracted the attention of Hehry McLemore, writes me the following letter from London. Suverkrop has been in Europe for some weeks: London, England, Sept. 8, 1686. "Doar Jim: As your London scout I've been neglecting you, apparently, but the real truth is there hasn't been anything to report until I noticed in yesterday's 'Dylie Mirror' that 'byse- bawl is 'ore to stye' and that they've Patsy 'endrew as was nydol of Middlesex cricket crowds •fur thetty yeahs, 'oo 'as nagreud to some perfessenal bysebawl fawms an' will plye next season.'

Although ft's a far cry from the "big" game season, tho college football campaign gets off to an early start with a few games in every section of the United States. Most ot tho games involve tho smaller schools but such gridiron leaders as Temple and West Virginia in tho east, Kentucky, Missis- Hipp], North Carolina State and Duke lu tho south, and Texas Christian and Hlco lu the southwest aro listed among those playing. Topping tonight's floodlight program comes the game at Philadelphia tonight in which Pop Wai'ner'a Templo Owls faco their neighbor, St. Josoph. Texas Christian faces Howard Payne at Urownwood, Tex., in tho southwest and Loyola of Los Angeles plays California Tech. Outstanding contesta tomorrow none of which should offer any ser ious difficulties for tho larger colleges, ' are Kentucky vs. Maryvlllo; Mississippi vs. Union University; Duke vs. Davidson; North Carolina State vs. Qustavus Adolphus and Oklahoma A. and M., vs. Central Oklahoma Teachers. Most of the action Is on the southern front whore, in addition to tho games already listed, most of tho other southern conference members are slated to try out their "Graham plan" teams.

(Associated Prcls Leant* Wire) LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18.—The Los Angeles Baseball Club shopped around today for a new manager to replace Jack Lellvelt. President David P. Fleming may not shop far, since Harry (Truck) Hannah, who has been Lellvelt'e rlghthand man and coach for many seasons, has been pushed for «he Job. Lellvelt, carrying out a wish he made last winter, announced his resignation last night and said he was soklng a position as scout for a major league club. - In eight years as manager of the Angels, Lellvelt won two Pacific Coast championships and tied for two more, losing In playoffs. Ae a player and manager In baseball for 31 years, ho said ho "desired a change" and was leaving tho club with "the friendliest of feelings." After a season marked by hard, luck, tho Angels finished In a fifth- place tie this year with the Mission Hods. Lellvelt's 1934 club was one of tho greatest In coast history, winning both halves of the split season by tremendous margins. "Baseball ha* been my life-long business, and I Intend to stay In li," ho said. "My association with the team has been harmonious in every respect, and It is with rcgjret that I am leaving." "Jack has ben wonderful to work With, and I know I ahall miss him." Business Manager Ogcar Relchow declared.
