THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 1938. THE MOKNING HKKALO, HAGL'KSl'OWN, MAKYI,AJND. SEVEN. GRIFFITH TO LET GOVERNMENT TEST Bureau of Standards Will Make Test of Lively and Dead Baseballs Washington, Jan. 12 (#>)—Clark Griffith, president of the Washington Senators, batted out the announcement today that he's goli to let the Government decide tl liomn rim merits of MR le;>si hasfiballs. "I've worked out all arriingemei with the BiireiMi "f Standards," 1 said, "to test the so-t.-nlled Xatio al League dead hall and the so- called American League rabbit ball." Griffith—a considerable pitcher in his playing days—hastened to add that this doesn't mean he's going to throw tip strikes for Uncle Sam's scientists to swing at. "This experiment." he said, "will be a mechanical one. Machines will do all the slugging and nobody will do any pitching." A human test was held in Baltimore Monday and a trio of sluggers from the American, National and International Leagues knocked both halls over the fence with deadly regularity. "Those guys," said Griffith, re- fen-ing to sluggers Jimmy Foxx. Chuck Klein and Charles Keller, "can sock any hall jusl about any place under certain conditions. 1 ' WOMEN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL LEAGUE Tuesday's Results Violets 3; Tulips 0. • Daisies 2; Jonquils 1.
