DAILY TRESS, NEWPORT NEWS. VA. Monday Morning. March 27, 1944 Sports 57 Sunday Ball Games Listed For Piedmont Loop In '44 Richmond, March 26. (IP) Patrons of Piedmont league baseball will be afforded ample opportunity this season to witness the doings of their respective clubs in daylight. According to the 140-game schedule released today by Ralph A. Daughton, of Norfolk, Piedmont prexy. nearly half of the tilts will be played in the sunshine, it being presumed that old Sol will be present on the 57 Sunday afternoon games and the half doen holiday double-headers carded. The holiday attractions are, of course, set for July 4 and September 4, Labor Day. The Independence day slate will see Portsmouth playing at Norfolk in the morning and returning to its home field in the Connie Mack Feels Club Has Chance For Pennant By Jack Hand Frederick, Md., March 26. (Pi Connie Mack thinks that his 1944 Philadelphia Athletics have a chance of ending his 13-year pennant drought but there's an oversized if connected with his dreams. The big if is expressed in these terms, "if we can keep what we have now." The A's stand to lose a couple of their experienced pitchers but the heart of the ball club is a reservoir of 15 or 16 players who have been rejected by the armed services or are either too young or too old. The venerable Mr. Mack who at 81 still hopes to win a tenth American league flag is convinced that his club will be an improvement on the 1943 version that won only 49 games and finished In the basement. While he looks for Improvement, Mr. Mack believes that the loss of Bill Dickey, Joe Gordon, Charley Keller. Luke Appling, Dick Wakefield and Tommy Bridges have leveled off the rest of the American league. Already the Athletics have set up a regular infield which is expected to start the season against Washington April 18. It includes two holdovers and two rookies. Dick Siebert is back at first base and Irv Hall, a shortstop last season, has been shifted to second. Edgar Busch, a .301 hitter from Elmira. N. Y, of the Eastern league, has been named shortstop and third base goes to George Kell, a 21 -year-old youngster who led all organ- Ollie Cordill Rejects Discharge To Continue Fight Against Nazis Dallas.

UP) Competition in the Deep Run Hunt club's hunter trials, set for next Sunday is expected to be the stiff-ist in years, according to Richmond horsemen. Several rivalries have grown among local devotees of the sport. Among the favorite who have the enthusiastic support of partisans are Mrs. Verser Todd's Huntsman's Pride and Dr. J.

M1) Here's why the New York Yankees may do well to finish before Christmas in the American league race: If their players in the service all were in one outfit the team would be made up of Joe DiMaggio, Charley Keller, Tommy Henrich In the outfield, with fwink Selkirk in reserve; Bill Johnson.

W) The New York Giants engaged in their first intra-squad practice game today with a team composed par tially of Jersey City players and Giant rookies, winning, 3 to 1. The contest was a seven-inning affair with a strong wind and bright sun making life miserable for outfielders. Manager Mel Ott, who Is recovering from influenza, announced Ace Adams, veteran pitcher, had signed his contract today at a substantial increase in salary. Ace denied he had demanded a 100 per cent Increase. Billy Jurges, shortstop, left for his Long Island home to recover from a strained back. Bear Mountain, N. Y., March 26.

(Pi The groggy New York Yanks, already minus much of what made them champions, suffered a couple more hard body punches today with word from California that Shortstop Frankie Crosctti and Pitcher Ernie Bonham had passed pre-lnduction tests. However, Bonham's case may be reviewed after army physicians examine X-ray pictures forwarded from New York, which he says show an old back fracture. No such in-Jury was disclosed in the examination he took in Sacramento. Bonhnm was second high Yank winner to Spud Chandler last year, and was the Yanks' ace In '42, with 21 victories.

Leading from the flagfall to finish, the 1941 winner of the National open and the Augusta Masters put on a stirring flnLsh for a hectic 68 on the final round to edge out Byron Nelson, the Toledo ace, by three strokes. Starting the day with a one-shot lead on Nelson and Jimmy Hines, Wood fired a 69 In the morning, and Hines and Nelson matched it. But In the afternoon the Duration open champion finished with three birdies in the last five holes to establish his winning margin. Nelson finished with a 70 despite a 33 on the last nine while Hines, requiring 34 putts, could do no better than a 72 for 276. Wood's rounds of 67-67.69-68 totaled 12 under par for the two courses where par was 71 one day and 72 the next and Hope Valley, where par is 70.

Skip Alexander, former Duke university star, now stationed at Newport News, Va., tied for sixth place at Z84. They each received $275. FORD MODEST IN COPPING TRIPLE TITLE New Haven, Conn., March 26. CP) Alan Ford, Yale's aquatic star who was the sensation of the National Collegiate A. A- swimming championships, today took a pile of new honors with his usual modesty. The Balboa Bullet dominated the two-clay meet, which ended last night, so completely that he had veterans raising their eyebrows. Here's what the rusty-haired, 20-vear-old Rocket did: He scored the first "triple" in the championships since 1936 by winning the 50-yard free-style and 150-yard back-stroke on Friday, a few days after leaving the college infirmary where he had been confined with a cold, and last night captured the 100- free-style by equalling his week-old world record of 49.7 seconds. By winning three titles a feat accomplished by only two others In the N. C. A. A.'s 21-year-old swimming history. Jack Medica of the University of Washington and Al Schwartz of Northwestern Ford scored 18 points and paced Yale to a 39 to 38 team title triumph over the University of Michigan. Shortly after scoring the "triple," Ford was named the outstanding college swimmer of the year by the College Swimming Coaches Association of American, and his teammates elected him next season's captain.

Captain McAfee, In her graduation address, discussed the Waves as a. liability and as an asset to the navy's chaplains. She reviewed their activities and problems at the various shore establishments of the navy and concluded with the hope that the chaplains would find them more of an asset than a liability. Said Captain McAfee "if your service as chaplains should take you i . . . . , n, I r . rt ; ; r.

"The chief Importance of Waves to chaplains is that they need the help of the chaplains the same as do the men. When Waves come from their basic training some will be discouraged, some will be dis-appolnetd and some, being fore-farned that the job is hard, will be happy and full of energy to perform the Job they know is going to help. "The chaplain should be able to give meaning to the things which his men are doing. He will be asked to do a thousand and one things, and th ethings that he's asked are important and are deeply appreciated when he does them efficiently. "But they are not what men and women want of their chaplains primarily. They want in their chaplain a person whom from the vantage point of his contacts with the most important and vital cause cf the universe can set this whole experience that we're all having In the perspective of moral values. "They should be men of God who, from their contacts with things eternal, can give to this experience so temporal something of the significance and the meaning which we all basically want to believe is in It. , "The Waves have a song which has in it the line 'We'll free the men who'll free the world.' That freedom will not be the freedom we want until it conforms to the will of God," Captain McAfee said in conclusion. The program closed with a re ception in honor of Captain McAfee given in Phi Beta Kappa hall by the war council of students of the college of William and Mary, on the campus of which the chaplains' school occupies three buildings. 50 Navy Nurses t t pori oi uangoon, uen wang ae- lHW INllTCAC clared the Japanese had concentrat-JLlUVj 11 ill OCO ed practically all their forces in At Guadalcanal Guadalcanal, Solomons Islands, March 25. (Delayed) VP Fifty navy nurses arrived here today the first to make Guadalcanal their permanent station completely unimpressed by the physical appearance of this early battleground. "Well," they conceded, "at least it Is land." Ensign Francis Collins q Cedar Grove, Tenn., thought Guadalcanal was "probably as good as any Island, but after all, islands are Islands." Fifty other nurses were sent to the Russell Islands and 27 to Tulagi, across Iron Bottom bay from Guadalcanal. Red-headed Lt. fjg Anna M. Kreider of Ephrata. Pa., was the first woman ashore here. She and Lt. (jg Catherine Appleby of Gar-nett. S. C, are In charge o ft he group. Among the first nurses ashore were Ensigns Elsie N. Leutwyler, Fort Dodge, la.; Thelma Straight.

"Yeah," responded a realistic soldier from New York, "but there Isn't much you can do about it, is there?" State Senator Washes Dishes For Law Course Berkeley. Calif., March 26. MV- State Senator John Harold Swan Is receiving a $5 a month retainer fee from the Alpha Chi Omega sorority at the University of California but not for legal advice. The graying, pink-cheeked legislator is being paid as a dishwasher- waiter while taking a two-year law course at the university. The senator said his experience in the legislature was responsible for his turning to law after teaching English and philosophy at Sacramento Junior c liege. Swan washes dishes at the sorority noon and evening and waits on table when needed. Besides the $5 fee he cets "some mighty fine food thrown In." he explains. The senatorial salary is $100 a month. The $5 help to make ends meet. Swan hope sto enter private law practice after graduation and announces he mill not seek reelection at the end of his state senate term next January. CHINESE CALL ON OWN ARMY FOR ATTACK Kunming. China, March 26.-UP)- Calls for a Chinese offensive, espec- lally on the Salween front in the southwest, are annearine in the Chinese newspapers, one declaring that conditions are excellent for a drive into upper Burma to meet massed sufficient strength to break the Japanese land blockade. Less than three months of fight' ing weather remain, however, before the rainy monsoon season begins. The correspondent of the Nlnkou Daily News, commenting on the progress of the Stilwell campaign to open a way for the Ledo road irom maia said the Burma campaign had entered a new stage and that the task ahead was the "resto ; j00r m But as matters now stand it seems that an order to move across the Salween would onlyv come out of dire military necessity or strong impor tunities from abroad. The Chinese high command is supposed to be waiting for a major and decisive action elsewhere in Burma, preferably an ambitious operation by Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten's southeast Asia command against lower Burma. Report Differences Washington and London reports of American and British differences over Mountbatten's strategy have been widely circulated by the Central News, official press agency of the Chungking government, and these in turn have Inspired unusually forthright discussion among informed foreigners of China's own position. If the overland supply route Into China could be opened before the next monsoon season, lt is said, the added supplies might be sufficient to enable the Chinese to recapture a seaport this winter and thus shorten the war in China by a considerable time. To reopen a seaport probably would require American or British naval support. Strongly urging the Chinese to start striking the Japanese in a big way the Yunnan Daily News declared operations at present were restricted to guerrilla activities "which however are not sufficient to meet the present requirements." The somewhat contrary view, evi dently in line with present official strategy, Is expressed in an article Gen. Wang Cheh-Ming, former dean of the Chinese military col lege and now vice commander-in-chief ' of the Kunming garrison forces, in the army newspaper Sao Tang Pao. Urging the Allies to make a big landing in southern Burma, presumably in an attack on the main nortnern .Burma to cope witn tne Allied offensive there. Six to seven Japanese divisions are now massed in northern Burma, he said, and the "Allies should not neglect such an excellent opportunity" to strike in the south. CHAPLIN CASE NEARS CLOSE Los Angeles, March 26. JP) The federal government probably will rest Its case Tuesday against Charlie Chaplin, charged with violating the Mann act in transporting his for mer protege, Joan Berry, across state lines for immoral purpose. The 54-year-old mimic's counsel, Jerry Giesler, said tonight he hadn't decided what his first move would be when the government rests.' He indicated last week in his opening statement to the Jury of seven women and five men that the 54-year-old movie comedian would be a witness. "But the government may not have a case and therefore I can't determine whether Mr. Chaplin will testify," said Giesler. He declined to amplify the statement but it was considered likely that he might mof for a dismissal when U. S. Attorney Charles H. Carr. finishes his case, contending that the government had failed to establish sufficient proof of its charge. The trial before Judge J. F. T. O'Connor is in recess from Friday until Tuesday. The defense has under subpoena several witnesses from New York and Oklahoma but lt may be that under Judg O'Connor's ruling last Friday, in which he held that red-haired Joan's romance with another man could not be made an Issue, these witnesses cannot be called. , The prosecution contended at the outset that Miss Barry's private life Deiore sne met Cnapun had no bearing in the Mann act trial. She has testified that she had sexual intercourse with the wealthy actor in his New York hotel apartment and at his Beverly Hills residence She also admitted she broke Into Chaplin's home, carrying a gun, but surrendered the weapon the next morning after being given $50 or $60. She told the court she engaged in illicit relations with Chaplin the night she forcibly entered his house. If Chaplin is called to the stand the defense will require about a week to present its case, Giesler indicated. If so, this will cause a delay in arguments scheduled Friday on demurrers to a conspiracy complaint against six other persons who, the government charges, aided Chaph'n in sending Miss Berry out of the state after she had been released from jail on a vagrancy charge. Williamsburg, James Matthew-Whaley School Notes A development at Matthew Whaley this, year has been the classes in metal work and in mech anical Drawing given to seniors by Max Rieg and R. J. Snyder. By combining the activity period with a class period these pupils have been given a period of 85 minutes once a week for this work. The time taken from their other classes has been made up by intensive work which enables them to do five days work in four each week. The class in metal work has been instructed and directed by Rieg in the use of tools an din the design and fashioning of simple object in copper, pewter, silver and German silver. A variety of bowls, earrings, letter-openers, bookends, and jewel boxes have been made during the year. Rieg feels that much more important than any attempt to make craftsmen of the members of his class In the comparatively short time they have to give to this work. Is the instilling in them of a recog nition and respect for simplicity and beauty of form and design, and the understanding and appreciation of good workmanship. The class in mechanical drawing under the direction of Snyder, started out with instructions on hw to handle the T-square, triangle and pencils. From that they learned the delineation of simple parallel lines and circles and then went into geometric problems such as bisecting angles, and laying out geometric figures. The next step was the pro. per method of dimensioning draw' ings and the projection of the different views of a part. Each pupil does a different pattern drawn to correct dimensions which he later cuts out. Some members of the class are now finishing the development of surfaces of geometric figures as applied to the laying out of sheet metal work anil the projection of intersecting surfaces of geometric figures. Others have begun working on isometric drawing in which three views of an object may be represented with one design. As the work advances the class will be taking up the design of elemen tary machine parts. The technl que of inking in drawings is also being learned. Personal Notes Pfc. and Mrs. O. D.
