,J>AGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Heinle Dreams of Being First Man To Load Both Loops SARASOTA, Pin. <UF>)—He's 1)7 years old now and graying around t!ie Icmplcs, but Henry E. (Heinle) Mannish still is determined to do something no other Imsetal! player has ever done—win the batting championship of both major leagues. Hnlf Ills goal was achieved wftli the Detroit Tigers buck In 1926. when lie lift .377 to carry off the American League honors. He hojii's to finl«sh the 'job this year or next, with tlic Brooklyn Dodgers. Heinle, who was born in Alabama and started out lo be a plumber before lie broke Into professional baseball, 1ms played with tlirce (cams lit (wo league in the lust three seasons. Failed With Two Clubs He was with Washington in 1035, Where lie batted only .213 and played in 119 games. Joe Cronln took him to Boston the next year, but Heinle proved as disappointing ns the oilier members of Tom Yaiv- kcy's Red Sox that season. Tin played in 82 games and made only 91 hlls for mi average of .291. The Tied Sox management floured he was through nml released him. Every club in (he leasnt? pass* 1 ;! him up and Heinle's basetall career apparently was at an end. The big outfielder returned to Ills winter home In this city mid bc?an getting in shape for the market by fishing and playing p,olf daily. Sold Himself (o Dodgers When the annual baseball inret- ing was held, Heinle boarded n train nnd went to •Brooklyn, where lie sold himself to the Dodgers. At the spring training camp In Cleanvaler, pla, Heinle worked as hard as the newest rookie. Tlic result of Ills efforts nnci determination is told in the record books. He played in 132 games, made 155 hits and drove in li runs for .a batting average of .333. "I may .yet win that National League ba I.ting championship." Heinle said as lie prepared for the 3938 campaign. "Ami. if 1 do. boy. won't that be something tor an old man ifke me."

Up in the Air Over a Flood f: BY JERRY BKONDFIEU) ••' -• NBA Sen-ice Sports Writer NEW YORK,' Feb. 16.—Ttorrest (Spec) Towns, )he lanky, sclssor.- legged gentleman from Georgia who showed'a "smart set of heels to the cream of the world's hurdlers in Berlin's Olympic Stadium, looks more like a. kangaroo going over the timbers than ii world champion. Thus'. does Lswson ' Robertson, University of Pennsylvania and Olvmnic -coach, describe him. Thus doesWcimer BasWn. his own track coach at the University of Georgia, describe him. ' 1 TO which reservations Mr. Spec Towns merely yawns, grins that . Georgia • cracker grin of his nnd (irawlsi "So what? Ah'ni still world's champeeh, ain't I?" ' Yes. Spec Towns is still Ihe world champeen, and what's more he probably is Ihe greatest hurdler the world ever has seen. Yet his style going over, the barriers Is highly reminiscent of a hippopotamus doing the Big Apple. Dives Over Hurdles To say he is unorthodox is staling it mildly. There's nothing too smooth about the way he lakes his three gigantic strides between hurdles and then soars up over them. Instead of swinging his amis in opposite directions, front and buck. when he skims over the sticks, lie flings them both forward almost in n dive. licit Spec claims it isn't how he docs ill,' but what he does, spec docs'all right. He didn't slart out as a hurdler. Welmcr Baskin noticed, first of all. trrat a certain freckle-faced freshman could high jump better than 6 feel 2 inches. He then discovered that this same. yearling possessed terrific speed for such a bi» man. Prom that moment on Spcc = Towns was a hurdler. Nor did Buskin bother him too.much with form.

Already building are two battleships, two aircraft carriers and 01 cruisers, destroyers, submarines and smaller vessels. In his regular budget in the first week of January Mr. Roosevelt nskcd funds to begin two battleships and 18 smaller vessels.

It was agreed Ihal the rules should call for •retrenchment, and a 10- yeiir holiday i" construction of capital ships." Under that agreement the three major naval powers scrapped, vessels built or building, as follows; 1. United States—One battleship of 32.GOO tons; six battleships of 43.200 tons; four battle cruisers of 43,500 tons. Two 43,500 ton battle cruisers, the Lexington and Saratoga, were converted Into aircraft carriers.

IN THE MATTER' thai, as they say, was that. His awkward-looking, kangaroo, style of bounding over the terriers looks even funnier indoors than outdoors on the cinders, where tne longer distance has just a 'slight tendency to smooth his style out just a trifle. Fairly Flying It was outdoors, too, where his helter-skellcr style carried him to what he considers the greatest performance of his career—a mark of 13.6 for the 110-meter event In Oslo, following the, Olympic Games. Somehow, however, the mark never found Its way Into the record books. Spec thinks It's because the bigwigs of International amateur athletics actually doubted the watches and didn't believe anyone could travel that fust over ,10 hurdles and 110 meters. Although Towns holds the acccpt- Jd record of H.I, the mark of 14-flat set by Bob osgood of Michigan last spring probably Will be written In as a new world record. Tint's okay with spec.

Guaranteed China's Sovereignly Japan, Great lirllaln and the United States, In a separate treaty, bound themselves not to expand lli'^lr fortifications in outlying Pacific possession, which meant that onr government could not increase Philippine Island fortifications or fortify (he Aleutian Islands nt all. The conferees, including Japan, signed a treaty guaranteeing the Uo'oiidonce, territorial inlegrlty and sovereignty of China. Of arms limitation agreed upon at Washington nothing tangible re- mnln.s. The non-fortification Dlcdges for pacific possessions exm'rcd.on Dec, 31, 193G. The treaty '/imrnnr'no- ing China's territorial Integrity was supposed to bo in ncrtiiilv, but little remained of it after Jaiian seized Manchuria In l!)31 and it is merely an historical document in view of Japan's current invasion of C'enli-al China. The Washington conference was the high point of arms limitation. President Coolidge In 1927 sponsored a conference at. Geneva to limit auxiliary craft of 10.000 Ions 01- less which had not li«en dealt with at Washington. Thai conference failed principally because the United States and Great Britain could not agree on type and number of cruisers. Great Britain and France in 1928 agreed upon a basis of arms limitation intending to summon a general conference [or its discussion. 'Rial conference proposal was blasted by American refusal lo accept Anein-prpiich simulation's that proposed naval limitation deal only with bl» submarines and eight-Inch gun cruisers—types in which the United States was much interested —while i»avin» smaller submarines up lo COO Ions nnd six-inch sun cruisers unlimited. The smaller submarines were strategically important lo France and the llgliter- nrmed cruiser generally is regarded by the British as the bulwark of Ihelr secondary'naval defense. In 1930 the naval powers met in Tonrion. The uniled States and Great Britain composed their cruiser differences, agreeing upon tonnage each should have of the type of craft best suited to individual needs. Japan, preparing for the Maiichurian adventure, negotiated an Improved naval ratio of 70 )>cv cent Instead of 00 per cent A Mellon Looks Over the Dogs liound dogs claimed Hie alien-- tion of lovely Mrs. Richard K.

So In that year-in London the United States, Great Britain and France agreed upon the types of vessels to be built—none between 10,000 and 17,500 tons; capital ships not to exceed 35,000 Ions. There was no limit on the number of vessels any nation might construct.'Japan sat In for a while and withdrew when refused navul equality in principle with the United slates and Great Britain. But by separate treaty wllli Great Britain the 1933 agreement was extended to Germany and the Soviet Union. Only Italy and Japan wore out of slop. One of the 1930 agreements was Hint battleship armament should Ire limited to H inches, provided no if:m-;slt;natory power built liirtjfr Birns. Japan declined to accept the M-lnch Hmitalioii and battleship guns automatically went to 18 inches. In the firsl week of Fi'lnu- ary Die United States.
