A EIGHT LINCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND STAR, OCTOBER 1, 1936 v uui ay v nil IheRiVGK nleMteen Fine fishing tackle, like a fine watch, needa constant care If It U to retain Iti usefulness over a period of yean, and at the end of the season it should receive a thoro overhauling together with the application of preservatives to guard 1U finish and materials thru the long winter. This thought was prompted this week by Frank Card, who said he rad last week's dissertation on hunting and was reminded that the "off" season was approaching and his trout rod and reel had not yet been put In condition for the annual hibernation. He said he thought his reel looked to be in pretty good condition but when he took it apart, found it was full of sand. Every fisherman who uses a reel and owns a good line should see that both are ready for laying away. It may be a mild winter or It may be as cold as last year: That in the wlntsr thtt made things retrtl. It froH the bomi right off the tilt It; Frose Ui wolves and the flock of ihtep, And tht water to tht well so feet deep. Frot tht tmokt it It climbed In tht air Frose Into a column llkt i winding ttalr. (Not of our own competition, but cold, Mvtrthtlcit. ) No matter what the temperature, the reel should be cleaned and well oiled to protect against mat The line, if a silk or cotton casting line, should be unwound from thereel and rewound loosely on some sort of a large spool. The same is true for the enameled fly line. I lost a good enameled line once by leaving it on the reel thru the winter. The enamel softened and turned Into a gluey substance that made It almost impossible to remove the line the next spring. If the enamel remains hard, it probably will crack from brittle-ness. Either way, it Is a loss. PETITIONS AND BACHELORS. Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Keller of Antioch, (he is the godfather to the famous mallard hen that returns each year to build a nest on one of his sheds) were active In circulation of the Izaak. Walton league's petitions protesting the drastic lowering of the water level In Crescent lake, situated in the heart of the federal game refuge. It was hard work. They traveled 300 miles, chiefly over Bandhlll roads one stretch of 17 miles required two hours of plowing and bouncing in their car. Reporting on their efforts to State President Betzer, they said everyone they called on signed, except one man who refused. The refusal they explained thusly: "He was an old bachelor, and therefore unaccountable." This explanation is being turned over to Doc Sharrar, Chuck Davis and Ade Newens for comment. ' TOURISTS. In his report to the State His- torical society Saturday, Secretary Sheldon said: "The largest crop in the United States drouth or no drouth is the tourist crop... It is the plan of the society that Ne braska shall obtain a larger share of this national crop. Chief attrac tiona for the tourist are climate, picturesque land and water, his- torical sites and monuments. The last of these is the greatest In at tractive power.' Probably as the result of long years of investigation Mr. Shel don knows whereof he speaks, but, judging from the millions of people who each summer seek the outdoors at vacation time, It vould appear that the "picturesque land and water" classification attracts a large share of the money spent by tourists. The society, to the limit of the means at Its command, can take care of the monument and his' torical attractions, the Almighty must be looked to for improve ment In climate, the game com mission and conservation groups can be depended upon for fuller exploitation of our woods and wa ters. But don't forget that a good press agent never hurt any enter prise. Nebraska is wealthy in the mat ter of attractive spots, both scenic and historic Each year numbers of our own citizens are discovering for the first time that there Is beauty and historical interest at their doorstep. Steady advertising of these resources will increase the number of sightseers and lov rs of the outdoors. Mr. Sheldon has done well to make the point the first item in his report. Tulane, Auburn Tie. TULANE STADIUM, New Or- leans, La. (US). A Tulane univer sity forward wall, turning in aeries of magnificent goal line stands that held the vaunted backs of Auburn In check, rose to great heights here Saturday as 20,000 fans saw the two elevens battle to a hard fought scoreless tie.

Can B-7538 Paul Waiter Grabs Off His Third National League Batting Crown o : : 1 : : : ' !arl Hubbell Tops Pitchers in Both Circuits Gehrig Leads in Homers. MUNGO STRIKEOUT KING NEW YORK- (UP) Paul Waner, Pittsburgh outfielder, on the National league batting crown for 1938 with a mark of .373, for the third time in his career, eom-plete official averages for the major leagues showed today. Waner, in 584 times at bat, got 18 hits 151 singles, 53 two- baggers, n i triples and five home runs to repeat his r.c-com plishments of 1927 and 1934 when he tnnnftH thp V'':''M I senior loop with ifj :-'n .380 and .362 I respectively. It fK I marked the seventh time that Waner had made more than 200 safeties and tied the modern Ml major league record held by Rogers Hornspy. For the first time in me nis- nrv of the American league a Chicago White Sox player, Luke Appling, won that bailing endm-pionship. His mark of .388, which topped his nearest competitor by 10 DOints, was me result ui mi- ting safely 204 times in 526 attempts. Six of them were homers, seven triples, 30 two baggers, and the rest singles. Carl Hubbell of the New Yoru Giants was by far the best major league- pitcher, winning 26 while losing six for an average of .813. American league pitching honors went to Irving (Bump) Had- ley of the New York Yankees with a percentage of .778 for winning 14 while losing four. Lou Gehrig of the Yankees ran away with home run honors, hitting 40 to tie his own previous best mark set in 1934, wnue wiei Ott of the Giants hit 33 to win the National league title. Other outstanding major league facts: Joe Medwick of St. Louis collected the most base hits in the National, 223, of which 64 were two-baggers. Medwick also drove in thi. most runs. 139. while nis team mate, Pepper Martin, stole the most bases, 22. Woodv Jensen of Pittsburgn went to bat 693 times to estab lish a new mark for his loop. Dix in 51 Games. Dizzy Dean of St. Louis and Paul Derringer of Cincinnati pitched the most games, 51, with the former completing the most, 38, and pitching the most Innings, 315, while the latter allowed the most hits, 322. Van Mungo of Brooklyn struck out the most batters, 238, but also gave up the most bases on balls, 118. Bucky Walters, Philadelphia, led the league in defeats with 21. Thirty National league players hit two home runs In one game: John Moore of Philadelphia did it three times and his team mate "Chuck" Klein smacked four for the circuit to tie the National league record set by Bob Lowe of Boston in 1894. Joe Medwick's 10 consecutive hits in iu times ai bat tied the modern National league record held by three play ers. The Boston Bees set a record for two-base hits in one inning, when they lashed seven in the first frame against St. Louis Aug. 25. It displaced the mark of six set by the Chicago Cubs in 1883. By winning the pennant the Giants brought to New York its 14th championship team equalling the record held by the Cubs. Gehrig Heads In Runs. Gehrig scored the most runs in the American league, 168, but Hal Trosky of Cleveland drove in the most tallies, 163. Charley Gehringer of Detroit hit 58 two baggers to lead the circuit and Earl Averill of Cleveland got the most hits, 232. Averill, Joe Di-Miggio of New York, and Bob Rolfe of New York tied for triples with 15. Tommy Bridges of Detroit won the most games of any American league pitcher, 23, and for the second straight year struck out the most batsmen, 173. Wes Fer-rell of Boston for the second year hurled the most innings,' 301, allowed the most hits, 330 and pitched the most complete games. 28. Lefty Grove of Boston blanked me opposition six times to lead in shutouts and Cecil Rhodes of Philadelphia lost the most games, 20. The rookie pitching sensation of me year, 17-year-old Bob Feller of Cleveland, struck out 17 batsmen on Sept. 13 to tie the mod ern major 'league record and break the American league mark of 15 set by Rube Waddell in 1908.

The New York Yankees as a club set many new American league standards, among them being 11 home runs in two games, 182 home runs in one season, 993 runs driven in, and finishing 19 Vi games in front of the pack. Gehrig, by driving in 152 tallies, tied Babe Ruth's mark of 150 or more runs batted in for six seasons. HUBBELL LAUDS FAT Jo-Jo" Moore Finally Gets Hit in Series: Many on Housetops. NEW YORK. CP). Freddy Fitz- slmmons, hero and goat of the third world series game, had Carl Hubbell's praise to console him. Hubbell went to him in the ciuo house after the game. "That's the greatest game I've ever seen you pitch," he said. But Fltzslmmons was inconsol able. "Some days I feel like I can throw that ball thru a brick wall. Saturday was one of them," he said. "But I made two mistakes. I threw Gehrig a slow one in the second, and he hit it into the bleachers, and I fielded Crosettis bounder in the eighth when I should have let it go." The irony of the game was that Fitzsimmons, who is generally regarded aa the finest fielding pitcher in the majors, lost the game he wanted to win the most by Juggling Frankle Crosetti's grounder and letting the winning run in in the eighth. That remark about "shouting from the hoasetbps" must have originated around Colonel Rup-pert's big ball yard. The roofs beyond the bleachers and the "El" were filled and the occupants, who paid enterprising janitors 25 cents for admission, made plenty of noise. 7 Jo-Jo Moore, who has been wonderfully Inefficient at bat, got his first hit of the series his first time up Saturday. Coming up again in the third, he got hold of another. But Twlnkletoea Selkirk pulled it down just short of the left field bleachers. It probably would have been a homer at the Polo grounds. Then Tony Lazzeri robbed Moore of a hit in the seventh, with a great stab of Joe's line smash. 1 Modre could have scored from second onTerry's single in the first if he had been a little psychic. Pancho Snyder, the Giants' coach off third, motioned him to halt when DiMaggip fielded the ball fast, but Bump Hadley muffed the throwin, and the Giant chance disappeared when Mel Ott hit into a double play. MARQUETTE TOO MUCH FOR BADGERS, 12 TO 6 MADISON, Neb. CP). Marquette university's Golden Avalanche railed on a brilliant passing attack Saturday to defeat the University of Wisconsin. 12 to 6, in an annua! state football classic witnessed byJ a crowd of 32,000 that basked in a warm sun. Marquette took a 12 to 0 lead in the first but the Badgers ware threatening the Marquette goal ai the game andedAll the scoring resulted from pass plays, Mar. queue completing 13 out oi Z attempts and Wisconsin S out of 23, The Marquette veteran back- field, consisting oi Buivia, juk, Sonnenberg and the Guepe twins, unleashed its vaunted aerial thrusts with telling effect and made 18 first downs against 16 for Wisconsin, Giants Left on Paths Like So Many Dames Waiting ' Sailor Sweeties. BY ARTHUR "BUGS" BAER. YANKS BOWL, NEW YORK, (US). We sat here in Ruppert's big vat watching the Giants pile up one heaping run on eleven stringy hits. The economical Yanks got two runs on four bopps. Which ia cer tainly stretching a very small spider across a very large wash tub. The Giants might have won if they hadn t wasted their substance in riotous boondoggling. They got on base all right, but they were left like a lot of dames waving at sailors. Fitzsimmons held the Yanks down like a scientist carving a guinea pig, but the box scores and Minsky's atrip dancers don't show too much. The Giant infielders eliminated many av double and triple by camping under everything like a Dalmatlon hound under a wagon. Lazzeri alone was robbed .of three interior homers by un fair competition from the Giant pickets. Hadley dldn t pitch a terrific game, but he lasted like leather shoelaces. Like Fitzsimmons, he got more support than a six legged table. It was a good, exciting baseball game. The action was much faster than on Wednesday and Friday. Fltz lost the refere s nod when he played patty cakes with Crosetti's grounder In the eighth inning. It let the cat out, and Powell in. Gehrig believes in sending him self on a man's errand and deported one of Fltz's knucklers from the park in the second frame. Strange thing about knucklers and stuff and things like that. Nobody ever picks up a baseball and throws it any more. It's either a knuckler, a sinker, a screw ball or a fader. Some day there will be another pitcher like Walter John son who had nothing but everything. All Walter did was to get It away quick like a postal cierK handling registered mall. Nebraska-Iowa State Statistics 3 0 68 18 2 1 0 CADETS OPEN FIRE 0N WASHINGTON-LEE, 28-0 WEST POINT, N. Y.. An Armj football machine that appeared to have enough power to do whatever It pleased repulsed the southern threat of the Washington and Lee Generals, 28 to 0 Saturday before an opening game crowd of 12,000 fans in Michie stadium. Led by the elusive and Wing- footed Monk Meyer, the cadets rang up a touchdown in each of the four - quarters. Meyers personally accounted for two of the scores. The superiority of the West Pointers was such that head coach Gar Davidson used both his second, third and fourth stringers. BY GREGG MrBRIDE. Traditional rivals tangle in all sections of the state this week to provide an unusually attractive Nebraska prep football card. Among the standout attractions are Falls City at Auburn, Hastings at Grand Island, Lexington at North Platte. The winner of the Falls City-Auburn clash will promptly step into the position of Southeast Nebraska league favorite. A victory for Lexington at North Platte would take the Minute Men a long stride toward the Southwest league championship while Hastings and Grand Island, each in with an improved team this year, are expected to provide one of the feature games of the early season. There is plenty of activity in the Omaha area with South at Tech and North at Creighton Prep. The Packers and Maroons will enter their Missouri Valley league tilt on even terms while the Vikings and young Jays are expected to put up a bitter scrap. Omaha Central opens its bid to Valley honors by entertaining the strong Sioux City Central team. Benson carries Inter-State league hopes to Fremont. College View at Jackson. Jackson's progress toward another Greater Lincoln league title will find College View challenging this week. There will be new leaders on each bench. Merritt Robson, who piloted the View-men last season, is the new Jackson mentor, while Bob Chase, a member of the Methodists' staff last year, is directing the College View squad. David City is at Bethany and Lincoln is host to St. Joseph Central in a non-conference game. Custer county fur will fly with Ansley at Callaway and Corn-stock at Merna. Broken Bow at Ord is the red letter game in the Mid-State Six. Fairbury meets a real test in York while Mitchell in the west should bag another win at the expense of Minatare.

Illinois was forced by a stubborn aggregation from Washington University of St. Louis to resort to an open passing game to gain a 13 to 7 victory Saturday. With five minutes left a bad kick by Washington," a 22 yard completed pass from Leo Staslca to Bob Castelo and a seven yard run by Castelo gave the Illini first down with three to go for a score. Staslca, who had made the first Illinois touchdown early In the second period, carried it over on the first play. The Washington Bears, playing the entire game without a single substitution while their opponents used 23 men, outgained and outfought the Illlnl. They made 10 first downs to Illinois' 7. Bad breaks and fine defensive work of the Illini in the clutches combined to prevent the visitors from an upset Fitzsimmons Hurls Mighty Game as Gave Only 4 Hits But Lost. YANKEE STADIUM. New York. (UP). Pull down the shades and turn out the lights in that big henhouse In Arcadia. Cal., for Freddie Fitzsimmons, the big poul-tryraan from the west, who pitched four hit ball for the Giants Sat- i urday snd lost. Drape the roosts In mourning and put hoods on the Fitzsimmons hens, because never did a pitcher sling such a pretty world series game and come out on the short end. All afternoon Fat Freddie was out there curling his wrist around his neck, turning his back on the home plate and then untangling himself to send his knuckler dipping down toward home. It has been a bed year for Fat Freddie, whose arm went dead last spring. He only won 10 games this year, but he intended to wipe the slate clean this afternoon by curving them past the Yankees. Early in the afternoon Lou Gehrig got a hold of one for a home run, but that can happen to any pitcher, and after that the fat boy settled down. Three stingy hits is all he gave besides that home run and meanwhile the Giants were bumping "Bump" Hadley around the park. Almost Foolt Crotettl. In the eighth inning the game was on the fire with the score standing at 1 to 1. Jack Powell was on third base and up there at the plate was Frankie Crosettl. Fat Freddie shot a strike across. Then came another strike and Crosettl hadn't had his bat off his shoulder. The roosters are crowing In Arcadia now and the hens were cackling the news that Fat Freddie was about to get out of the hole. The ball came up to the plate, wobbling and weaving, and Crosettl swung. The ball hit the ground in front of the box and bounced as Fat Freddie stabbed at it, got his glove or it and then dropped it. Powell raced across the plate with the winning run. Fat Freddie went back to the box and kicked the resin bag around. With the least bit of luck he could have held the ball Crosettl hit and choked off the run. But this Isn't Freddie's lucky year, and that's how he became both the hero and the goat of the third world series game. And that strange sound you heard near sundown was the wall of a Plymouth, Rock in. Arcadia, sending out the bad news that the breaks were still against the boss. BROCK, ANDREWS, WHITE, BALL IN EFFECTIVE WORK (Continued from Page 5-A.) klckoff return, had a four yard average In 9 attempts. Howell averaged 2 yards, Ball 3.7, Douglas 2.5. Gordon Reupjte was the biggest ground gainer for the Cyclones, this 195 pounder carrying 10 times for it 5.2 average per try. Now all the Husker have to do Is forget the brilliant debut and begin preparing for Minnesota. In modern football there rarely is time enough to sit around and enjoy a well earned and decisive victory, such as the Huskers turned in. Not since the Cardinals squeezed out their seventh and decisive triumph over George Earnshaw and the Athletics in 1931 has a series witnessed as thrilling a battle of breaks or as tough a setback for the losing pitcher. Fitzsimmons not onl- outpitched Hadley by a decisive margin at nearly every turn but he exhibited superb control of his knuckle ball, which he mixed with a low curve and change of pace to throttle most of the Yankee sluggers. Up to the fatal eighth the only hits ST. MARY'S TREADS ON CALIFORNIA BEARS 10-7 BERKELEY, .Calif.' UPt. St. Mary's Galloping Gaels marched into the national football picture in decisive fashion Saturday with a 10 to 0 victory over the University of California's Bears. Sixty thousand cheering fans saw the finest St Mary's eleven turned out by Coach "Slip" Madl-gan in many years score a field goal in the second quarter and crash over with a touchdown in the fourth, meanwhile outplaying the Bears almost from start to finish. off the stout right hander were Gehrig's second inning homer into the new right cnter bleachers anil DiMagglo's double to left center.

CARNEGIE TECH. 21-7 Irish Open Season at Full Speed, Hold Tartans Almost Helpless. SOUTH BEND, Ind. P. The 1936 fighting Irish of Notre Dame, featuring a surprisingly robust running attack, went on parade for the first time of the season Saturday and marched thru Carnegie Tech to a sparkling 21 to 7 triumph herore 35,000 spec tators. The easterners, with a mixture of veterans and brilliant sophomores, were figured to give the Irish a terrific battle but were un able to cope with the array of power houseball carriers Elmer Layden turned loose against them. The Notre Dame machine had a little trouble getting up a full head of steam, blowing a scoring chance In the first quarter, but once under way, hit a high peak of efficiency in the second and third periods. Behind a line that operated beautifully on the offense and showered few signs of weakness against the Tartans defensively Notre Dame's backs jammed thru for a touchdown and pounded over two more in the third.

There whs nothing flukey about that world series victory Saturday at least In the opinion of Joe McCarthy and his triumphant New York Yankees. "You can't deny that it takes real ball playing to win a gamo when you don't get but four hits while the other team gets 11," said McCarthy as he made the rounds of the dressing room, shaking hands and congratulating the players who had contributed to the victory. "Hadley's pitching was right up to expectations. He bore down In the clinches and stopped ni, which is what counts out there on the mound. I'll admit it was a tough one for Fltz to lose, but It was the break of the game and It went against him." The Yankees seemed even happier to win this contest than they did the first one. Their quarters under the stands was a bedlam with .the players slapping each other's naked bodies while lavishing praise on Hadley, who had won the first world series game he ever pitched. "I was good and loose, and felt like I could put it anywhere I wanted to," the boy nicknamed "Bump" Bald. "01' Doc Peters gave me a good rubbing this morning and my arm felt like rubber out there. Explain Ripple's Homer. "That one Ripple caught for a homer was a fast ball that started out low, but rose too fast, and by the time It got to him was better than waist high," he said as he opened a handful of telegrams -some sent before the game, wishing him luck and some late congratulations on his victory. One was from Hadley's first baseball coach, Fred Beresford, formerly of St John's military academy. McCarthy said that Monte Pear-son, right hander whom he secured from Cleveland last winter In a deal tagged "best of the year" by baseball followers, had recovered fully from his wrenched back and would pitch Sunday. Pearson will face Carl Hubbell, screwballer, who won the first "mud battle" of the series for the Giants. Manager Bill Terry made his choice as he sat glum and half dressed In front of his locker after the game.- "That was a heart breaker all right," he said. "We got plenty of men on base but couldn't seem, to get 'em around to home plate. Yeah, we left too many of 'em stranded." UNSEASONED KANSAS E LEVEN 19-6 WINNER Gov.
