PGA Tourney Dates Listed by Harlow THOMASVILLE, Ga. Feb 15 (API Robert G Harlow, tournament manager of the Professional Golfers association, announced today the dates for several future tournaments.

The Schoolboy added that his 16-game winning streak of 1934 was "a terrific strain" and forecast that Rogers Hornsby's St. Louis Browns "before many seasons roll around are going to make it plenty tough for the rest of the league." Rowe. an instructor with Horns-by and Jerome "Dizzy" Dean in the Hot Springs baseball school, noted that he was down to his best pitching weight of 205 pounds. He plans to return to his Eldorado. Ark. home about March 1 and then continue on to the Tiger training camp at Lakeland, Fla. Added Plenty Power "We haven't lost a thing this winter and we've added Al Simmons to the outfield," Rowe said in discussing Detroit's chances. "You can watch out for Al this summer. He's going to have one of his best seasons if I don't miss by guess by a long way. Boston has added a lot of stars but I don't look for the Red Sox to be as strong as everybody expects. Their chief handicap will be a lack of organization." Commenting on. his 16-game winning streak of two years ago which tied the American League record, the Schoolboy said: "The strain is terrific. You win about 10 straight and the other teams start putting the pressure on. Every time you pitch, they'll do their darnest to pin your ears back. And every time they'll save up their aces." Dizzy Dean, the loquacious star of the St Louis Cardinal hurling corps, interrupted to say that meeting aces was only routine for him. prominent ficial in the association, yesterday offered the Lewis Thompson trophy for the winner.

It is built into every part of the car in those things you see and those that are hidden. We say it with assurance because it has been the experience of so many millions of drivers that many months after your first ride you will still be saying "I'm glad I bought a Ford." The Ford Motor Company is not content with ordinary specifications for materials. Its own stand-ards of quality for many important parts are considerably higher than usually accepted standards. Ford valves are an example of this extra value. They are made of a nickel-chrome alloy-steel that contains 13 chromium, 13 nickel and 2 silicon. This unusually high alloy content increases resistance to heat insures more efficient, economical performance and longer life. Intake valves, as well as exhaust valves, are made of this more expensive steel in the Ford V- 8. It is one of several good reasons why the Ford engine is singularly free of valve troubles. It costs us more to build a car like this yet the price of the Ford V-8 remains low. Ford manufac-turing methods save many dollars for Ford owners and bring fine-car quality within the reach of every one who drives. r Takes 25 Operations to Finish One Ford Valve-ti FoH V- vWe ,m j, Erouad fi, hmfs for greater accuracy and .momhoM,.
