THE DAILY NEWS-LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. iMaggio Rated Highest In League IN THE SPOTLIGHT By Jack Sofd$ Yankee Clipper, Reached Average of .38rin Batting i for New York I CHICAGO, ~Oct. 25,—(/Pt— The ' American league's most valuable j player for the l'93fl season was | Joe DiMaggio, the star of stars on : the New York Yankees world j championship club. [ His selection by a committee of; 24 members of the Baseball \ Writers' Association of America ; emphasized once again the fact >. that power dominates the junior j circuit. i DiMaggio'.s past season with ' the Yankees was the best of his lour in the big-time, his bat , carving out a .381 mark, tops for j the league. He knocked out 30 ' homers and drove home 126 runs, | by far his most brilliant Reason. ' Four times in the past nine i years the batting champion, has ' won the most valuable award i and:-only once has a pitcher been given the honor—in. 1931 when nly „ - th . . Robert Moses Grove, then of Philadelphia, was the recipient, i DiMaggio polled a total of 280 | points out of a possible 336, get- \ ting'15 first place votes out of 24. i Each first place vote counted 14 ' points, second place votes counted nine points, third place eight; points and so on down to 10th place which was worth one point. The Yankee centerfielder got three second-place votes, three third, one'fourth and two fifth. Jimmy Poxx, Boston's slugging first'baseman and most valuable three times already, was second in the voting with 170 points although only one writer gave him a first place nod. Bob Feller, Cleveland pitcher, collected three first place votes and a total of 155 points for third place. Ted Williams, 'Boston rookie gardener, and Charles Ruffing, Yankee pitcher, placed fourth and fifth, respectively, with 12G and 116 points, but neither wa.s given a first place ballot. Bill Dickey, Yankee catcher, rated sixth at 110, including-three top votes. Dutch Leonard, Washington i pitcher; Bob Johnson, Phila- ; delphia outfielder; Joe Gordon, i Yankee second baseman, and > Mike Kreevich, Chicago outfield- ! er, rated next in that order with j 71, 52, 43 and 38 points respec- ! tively.

Iowa, Northwestern Will Learn Place In League Former Mississippi Star Passes His Way to Mythical Professional Honor CLEVELAND, Oct. 25.—(/P)— Drawling Parker Hall, leading aerial artist of the National Football league, carried Ohio's unanimous support today as he passed his way toward the mythical honor of best pro rookie of the year. Screened .by one of the weakest defensive lines in the league, the Cleveland Rams' triple- threat ace has connected on 56 of his 101 tosses for 702 yards and four touchdowns. The former University of Mississippi all-America halfback, with five games to go, needs I only to complete 27 more passes to crack the league record of 82 set by slingin* Sammy Baugh, of the Washington Redskins, two years ago. A 22-year-old, 205-pounder who hails from Tunica, Miss.; Hall has been the kingpin of Coach Dutch Clark's upcoming Rams. He has completed at least half his tosses in every game except the tussle with the Detroit Lions and was the key factor in Cleveland's surprise victory over the Green Bay Packers. -This pro ball is sure tougher than college," Hall said. "But I . believe the hard going has been I more than balanced by the fine I catching done by Jim Benton, j Vic Spadaccini and some of the 1 other boys." ' Hall throws what he terms an "oft pass." Benton, former Arkansas star. and Spadaccini, from one of Minnesota's great teams, rank among leading receivers as a result of his crack marksmanship. Last fall at Mississippi Hall connected on 52 of 98 tosses for 11 touchdowns. With the Rams he has aver- WEDNESDAY, OCT. 25, 1939. GAME PROPAGATED AT WELDER CREEK t*^ 1 'l'l1l(*"'^ u ^r"*"trr"^»M»Wrl • ••ll I—iniiiiialll ^i 11 The above pictures were taken at the Wilder Creek Fish and Game Sanctuary in Calhoun County near Marshall. This 70-acre tract, formerly ah abandoned mill site and dump ground, \vas turned into a game preserve, fish hatchery, and picnic grounds by workers from the National Youth Administration in cooperation with the State Department of Conservation and a group of interested sportsmen. Recently 750,000 bluegill fineerlings were transferred from the rearing pond to Calhoun County lakes. Various species of wild life and small game inhabit the well protected area. A yearly output of GOO ring-necked pheasants, 100 ^ Mutant pheasants, 100 Hungarian partridges, and 200 mallard ducks has been realized by the sponsors of the project. NYA youth, besides constructing n stone public building, developed a valuable fish hatchery, cleared the adjacent land, constructed came rearing pens and built bird houses and other necessary aids for preserving wild life. The popu- nrity of the spot as a picnic ground is attested to by the fact that during 1938 and the past summer season visitors from all states and many Canadian provinces were attracted. More than 00,000 persons use the picnic grounds, parks and trails annually for gatherings, and recreation. hfnr 0 f» a s f fe .. mar e i » of scores before the testing program went: Has Enjoyable last year and Bachman did not CHICAGO, Oct. 25.— (./Hi —'more Iowa and Northwestern probably will know the worst about their first division hopes in the Big Ten football race by Saturday night.
