This "brought the combined total of his and Walters' wins to 49— the total that Diz and Paul Dean accomulated over the full season in pitching the -Cardinals to the 1934 pennant. i, It did not, however, solve the question that came up for debate today: ' "Can Gene Thompson, Whitey •Moore, Milt Shoffner, John -•Vander Meer, Lee Grissom and ,the gang win three or four '/games real quickly?" •» The standings now: ; Games Games to Won Lost Behind Play .Cincinnati 88 54 12 'St. Louis.. 86 57 2V 2 10 (x) .

Big Seven 1940 Race Will Be Close Battle By LEE KRUSKA A preview of the Big Seven football situation, with the date for the first conference games rapidly approaching, seems to indicate that most of the strength, or so Big Seven authorities think, lies this year with Ludington's Orioles, defending champions, and Alpena's Wildcats, who last year finished fifth with two wins and two losses. The way things are shaping up now, nothing seems certain. It looks like a ding-dong battle for the loop crown. Traverse City, runner-up to the Orioles in last year's campaign, is keeping mum about its prospects and must not be under-rated. The last three Big Seven championships have been split up between Ludington and the Trojans and the northerners must be considered dangerous, especially since they are bound to develop and also because of the fact that four Traverse conference games will be played at home. Other Big Seven coaches are keeping an anxious eye on developments in the Ludington camp. Coach "Mitch" Read has a picked squad of about 40 hopefuls, including seven lettermen, working out daily at Oriole field. The seven returning lettermen, Snow, Horowski, BorrLs- seau, Pape, D. Daron, Anderson and Reynolds, provide the Oriole coach with a fine nucleus around which he is molding his 1939 eleven. Before the Orioles can be considered championship material, the Oriole mentor must fill positions in the line-up made vacant by graduation. New men, and finished firm in the conference race. Chief loss to the Alpena mentor was a heavy forward wall. With a crew of 100 candidates to pick from, however, the Wildcats are exceedingly hopeful and have their claws sharpened in preparation to waging a battle royal for the loop crown. Ludington and Alpena do not meet. Strong Teams Petoskey and Cadillac who tied for third last year, are expected to come up with stronger teams, despite heavy losses in vulnerable posts in their lineups. Between 75 and 80 warts turned out for the call at Cadillac, Talbot Denies Joe Louis Is On Fistic Down Trail (By GAYLE TALBOT) DETROIT, Sept. 22.—G-P)—If one man has told me in the past 24 hours that Joe Louis was slipping, that soft living has dulled his aim and that he no longer is the brown bomber of a year ago, then there have 'oeen a dozen.

Big, popular Jim is the man from whom Louis won the title over two years ago. He should have a pretty good idea. Does Louis qualify as a truly great fighter. I asked him, and has he passed his peak? "Get this," said the former champion. "He is the greatest fighter who ever entered the ring. He is the greatest fighter you will ever see in your life. He's as good now appeared to be coming back. Sooner or later, I felt, Louis would hit him again. Jimmy Johnston, Pastor's manager, was at my elbow screaming: "Whoa! Look out! Hold him! Move around!" Jimmy felt the same dread. He is 63 and his doctor has told him his heart is in precarious shape l so he shouldn't have been shouting like that. Louis finally did hit Pastor with another right, and it was mercifully quick. I asked Louis Thursday if he had planned beforehand to use only his right on Pastor this time. "No," he said earnestly, "I hadn't planned anything. But after we started it seemed like the best hand to use."

Braddock's opinion is 3,006 enough for me. I think Louis is the greatest fighter I'll ever see.

Sept. 19. Mr. Alexander, known to old- timers as "Tan Bark Bill." because of his speed with a bark spud in early days, enjoyed the day on his farm by cutting and shocking one-half an acre of corn.

Conn's desire for vengeance made it unanimous, for Bettina is sore over losing the title in his first defense of it. Besides seeing $100,000 in potential championship money slip right through his fingers, Bettina was deeply hurt that he disappointed 3 000 home town followers at that New York fight last July.

He has a .superlative passer in Nile Kinnick, around whom the offense will be built. Don Miller, big Sophomore; back, gave the Wisconsin veterans a look at his heels Thursday in the Badger workouts. During r a. .scrimmage he scored three touchdowns and kicked one ex- tia point as the varsity performed in sluggish style.
