THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 18, 1939. : i :5 Orioles to Be Idle This Weekend Spartan Gridders Set Sights for Purdue Team Alpena Will Risk its First Place Tie in Petoskey Game The Big Seven conference football race will be temporarily slow this week-end with only two games to be played and the results of thest uvo games fairly- well determined already. Ludington. Manistee and Cheboygan will be absent from league wars this week-end. Lud- ingiton gridders will take a complete rest as far as competition goes. Practice is going on as usual, however, in preparation for a game the following week at Oriole field with Cadillac. Manistee engages Hart under the lights Friday evening and on Saturday afternoon, cneboygan <wlll invade Rogers City for non-loop game. Petoskey will journey to Alpena for' the most important game of the week. Petoskey is already defeated, the expertes think, and Alpena will continue to hold the hill with Ludington next week. If, however, Peto.skey ! should happen to upset the dope-bucket, the Orioles, without donning uniforms, would go into sole lead of the conference. Traverse City ha.s a date to •battle Cadillac on the Vikings' floodlighted field Friday evening. Cadillac lost to Manistee last, v, - r>ek and. although City a victory for the Trojans would toe considered a major upset in the loop. The Orioles are looking forward to their last game under Oriole field's new lights on Friday, Oct. 27. Following the last home game on that date, the locals will play at Traverse Citv once and at Manistee, both games being scheduled as night games. EAST LANSING. Oc:t, 18.- •i.-Ti —The Spartans of Michigan 'State college today looked Purdue's football plays right in the face and found them to their liking. Following the usual procedure of turning a reserve squad equipped with opponents' plays loose against-the varsity in (lie week before a game.

Still the injury list did not co down. Wy Davis was jerked from practice quickly wh./! he aggravated an old ankle complaint, but it was not expected to be serious.

Oct. 18.-—...T'l— Owner Phil Wriglcy and Manager Gabby t. it seems, finally have come to an under- ;.tandi:i:; on the operation of the Chicago Cubs organization. 'What I have been hoping for-- and I haven't been issuing any demands — is a closer knit uraani/.ation." Wriglc.y explained. "Hart net t apparently did not understand this. I think he docs now. "Where I found him deficient was in accepting responsibility. I tried to point that out to him and I think he understands now. I have no ideas on another manager at this time. Frankly. I wouldn't know where to look for one." Hartnci'.. whose managerial head appeared destined for the guillotine a few days ago. said he thought "everything was going to turn out all right." Hartnett's contract expires in December Three regular matches and one postponed match were rolled in the Industrial league at Smith's alleys Tuesday night, Weyenberg's fast traveling team came within one game of (first place by taking three straighi from Park Dairy. For the third consecutive week George liillman led his team to victory. His 591, result of games of 222, 190 and 179, was high for his team and high for the evening. His 222 was also .single game-high. Harold Benson of the same team pushed. Hillman for first honors but in spite of games of 207 and 210, wound up second best with 559. Newman's 488 was high for the losers. Team that made the most amazing jump in the standings was the Willoughby five. By taking three straight from Moose lodge and two out of three from American Laundry, in a postponed match, they were able to emerge Jrom the league cellar. In the first match Johnson of the winning five was high with 506 while Bob Cooper had single game high, 208. Johnson, with a 496 series, was again high in the second match but his teammate, Prehn, had .single game I hfgh, 218. Koudelka of American j Laundry tied Prehn's single game mark and had high three I game total for the match, .spilling 569 pins, his best performance this year. Hansen and Peterson Auto Sales jumped a notch in the standings by winning two from the American Laundry. The winners fowled steadily in winning two out of three. Grain, with an even 500, was best for the winning aggregation. Best rolling of the evening, however, was turned in by G. Haller of American Laundry who displayed what consistency really is Haller started off with 19C,' then rolled 193 and wound up with 194, only three pins difference between his worst and best games Haller's total, 583. was second best of the evening.

Oct. 18.—(/Pi— When Joe Louis has made the j final defense of his heavyweight ! title i probably next summer^ and retired as the only undefeated Negro champion in ring history, the Brown Bomber will set.tledown as proprietor of his own swank riding club and eat- in;:, establishment near Detroit. : It's all mapped out for Joe by ; his co-managers. Julian Black 1 and John Roxborough. just as they have arranged every other item of his existence since he , came into the orbit of these two remarkably determined men. Credit to Race i For the last six months, our informant says. Roxborough and Black have been giving more thought to the champion's future than to making his matches and supervising' his traininn. They arc certain he can retire next year. but they arc intensely interested in see- inu that Joe remains a credit to the Negro race after he has •hung up the red mittens. "If Joe thinks he's going to retire to a life of leisure and ' just plain pleasuring himself he's bacllv mistaken." says our insider. "He'li work and behave himself and not get fat if Julian and John have to break his neck for him.' ' The riding academy and eat- ; cry for members of Detroit's I colored upper-crust is the idea , they finally have decided upon, j he says. Joe alreaclv owns several blooded saddle horses and. ; furthermore, knows how to ride i 'em. He will be the host, perhaps Making an occasional turn i around the paths with favored I uucsts and dippinu into the ; kitchen now and then to see that the fried chicken has body . and flavor. ' Proud of Champ Like the other members of | their race but even more so-'Black and Roxborough feel an inordinate pride in Louis, not alone for his accomplishments inside the ring, but for his conduct outside the ropes as well. They have "hand-raised" him, guiding his every move and never letting him play with matches. Doubtlessly, some of their zeal has been attributed to the unpleasant memories attached to the career of the last Negro heavyweight champion before I Louis--Jack Johnson. They are i fiercely determined that there i shall be no slight blemish on '; Joe's record. In future years. ; when he is introduced at ring! side, they want Joe to get the i same kind of hands that Jack ! Dempsey and Gene Tunncy rc- now. Iowa contest, but is expected to accompany the team when it leaves Friday. His activity has been limited to light workouts. I Three other cripples who! have been on the sidelines for several weeks, Tackles Dennis Kuhn and Al Wistert and Center Horace Tinker, participated in Tuesday's scrimmage. Their return left only Frutig and Halfback Paul Kromer on the casualty list. Exceptional Luck Reported by Group Although many Mason county hunters were not especially .satisfied with their kill on opening day of the small game hunting season, a group of seven Ludington hunters, -who hunted Sunday and Monday morning in Isabella county, near Mt. Pleasant county, pronounced itself well satisfied after bagging the limit on pheasants. The group, consisting of Charles Clapper, his sons, Bill and Bob, "Sonnie" Holcomb, "Chuck" Clapper and Harry Akkeson. brought back 20 pheasants, two rabbits and two fox squirrels, one of the nicest assortments reported in any Mason county this week. Bag limit on pheasants, according to the state law, is two a day and four in possession. Various local hunters seem of the opinion that game birds of that description arc « more plentiful near the central part of the state. Gus Weinert, who hunted out that way Sunday, reported bird.s plentiful. BOXING NEW YORK—Jimmy Leto, 151'i. Hartford, Conn., outpointed Mllo Theodor- cscu, 145V4, Kumanln, (8).

Wolverines Prepare for First Game on Road Next Saturday Afternoon ANN ARBOR, Oct. 18.—(/Pi— Michigan's football team got down to work in earnest for its encounter Saturday with Chicago's Maroons after Coach Fritz Crisler declared the blocking in last week's game with Iowa, both downfield and on the line, was "downright ragged." "This i.s the sixth week of •• practice and we haven't mastered this fundamental." he said. "It's about time we did." As a result, he ordered the blocking dummies to be hauled out again today and hinted another scrimmage would be held if results were not satisfactory. Chicago plays, many of them similar to the spread formations of the Detroit Lions, were to be shown the squad today along with ;/.n outline of the defense Crisler has designed to stop them. Interest in the game with the downtrodden Maroons, an expected easy mark for the powerful Wolverines, has been ovcr- shad'i-.\ed by the impending in- ter.sectional clash with Yale hero a week from Saturday. Orisier said lineups for the conference tilt, the second of the season for the Wolverines and the first away-from-home trip of the year, were incomplete and would remain so until game time, Ed Frutig. River Rouge end. reported for practice Tuesday with a leg injury .suffered in the Shipments of fabricated structural steel during June, 1939, were the largest for any month in the past two years.

NEVER attach a radio aerial or lead-in (or anything else) to a. pole carrying electric wires. 2. Locate the aerial so that it will not cross the path followed by an electric line. .'{. If it is unavoidable that the aerial or lead-in crosses the path of an electric line, ALWAYS CROSS BELOW THE ELECTRIC WIRES — NEVER A- HOVE THEM. Never allow a radio aerial or lead-in wire to come any closer than six feet from an electric power wire, and always keep it as far away as possible. 1. ALWAYS have a well grounded, approved lightning arrester located in the lead-in close to the point where it is brought into the house.
