Just go out and win It yourself." For Hut's what B«cky did last night.' The Cincinnati H«ls were playing the Philadelphia Phillies. Going .into Ihc last half of the ninth inning liucky probably felt pretty discouraged. Hr'd lost three games in a row before last night. His'own team had scored only six runs for him in those three games. In one of them, Bucky allowed only four hits. , And last night he'd tossed nine scoreless innings against, the Phll- llrs. He'd .scattered four hits, and was never in trouble. But the Philly pitcher—Charlie Fiichs—had done equally as well. In eight and two- thirds innings, Fuclu had allowed only four hits himself. ^Up came Walters to the pialc. If Fuchs could get him out, the game would go into extra innings. Biit he couldn't. Bucky singled. Then Wallers tricked Puchs into niaklnrj a balk Ijy taking a long lead off first. That put him on second. . • Eddie Miller was the next baticr. Miller promptly smacked the ball overseas soon after, lie Is being granted leave of absence by the college in order to lake the new position for the duration. lie was In France for 11 months during the first World War as a- master hospital sergeant.

Like all great ftlhlc'lcs and sports- luii though, Del'alma likes lo oublc back over memory hine, and ie remembers his 1-1 years of com- Ktltlon with the Immorlnl barney )iitficld, with whom he split even victories, nnd his association vith Cnpt.

By HAltKY GAVSON NKA Siinrls Edilor NEW YORK.—President, RoDsor veil says he probably -will appoint a three-man committee to consider and in thiid-diiuciisional language and muenelalure.

It won't lie long until every man, woman and child out of uniform will be on a committee of some sort. Then corodhintors will lie needed lo coordinate coordinators. • 'Sports require coordinators like 1 need malaria. Why put a bure/iu- rat oir every bench and sideline ,nd tn every dugout and graud- tnnd? There are too many club- lousc lawyers as it is. There are restrictions on cvcry- nic. There are the OPA, ODT, the ]imipo\vcr commissioner, rubber ad- nlnlstrator, economic stabilizer and what not.. If sports, as such, in- ringe upon the rules put forth by bodies and officials, they should have the power to .set them down, which they did not possess or at least did not exercise lu more Mian one instance in connection with racing. President Roosevelt makes it clca ! that the sports committee would have no power. That seems to b the Idea "all the way along the line Sports magnets, promoters ' officials who have, run into Wash ington with imaginary petitioned for a war-lime coordln ator or committee, are making mistake. If their respective games, dodges and rackets can't find their own niches and grooves in the all- out effort, naming another commission isn't going to help. Without any great degree of leadership, sports have muddled I along very well on IViclr own, have contributed no little lo the war effort. Another commission would only be a hindrance lo what already is taking place along the proper lines. Professional boxing, for example, suspected it had troubles until it got commissions to elaborate on and put the slightest of headaches as well sit this one out entirely. this summer There are much more important things to be done. And if the President can fiiu among our KtO million three mei who can iron out the problems real>and fancied—of professional amateur and Intercollegiate sports tuul plain recreation, with their various subdivisions, he will have uncovered three Solomons who vould be ol vastly more service on he United Nations' board of trategy. , Such a triumvirate would have ,he boys home in time to celebrate the Glorious Fourth with three steaks in every pan, and automo- )llc in every garage and free lie-r and chips throughout the permanent peace.
