The White Sox started out last light on what should prove a great idventure, win or lose. They made Iheir start in the direction of Detroit, where they open today against ane of those new fcroom layouts, but oy the time they return to their own harth on Sept. 2 they will have played, unless the elements intervene, twenty-three games in seventeen days. There still is hope that a slight piece of this program will be cut down. The Sox. after a twin bill next Sunday in Cleveland, have been scheduled to play in the same spot on Monday, originally an open date. From there they go to New York and Boston for five double-headers in as many days and another in Philadelphia to make it six in a row. Meanwhile the Cleveland Indians must play three in two days in Boston and six games the following three days In New York with the Yankees. Jim Wants a Day Off. Before the Indians departed from Chicago Sunday night, James Dykes, who manages the Sox, appealed to Oscar Vitt, peppery boss of the Cleveland club. Dykes would love to have next Monday set aside as a day of rest. He rests all the time, but his concern has to do with the strenuous work about to be foisted on his employes. Vitt is thinking about the same of his men, so he will try to talk his front office into delaying the Monday game until the Sox return to Cleveland for three days late in September. Starting out on a tough trip without prospects of an early return to second base of Jack Hayes wasn't exactly encouraging either for Dykes or his boys. Many may underestimate -the all-around value of the Alabama kid, but when he's absent it makes a difference. Marvin Has Nerve. Hayes isn't the only member of the Dykes cast who is incapacitated. Owen has a bum ankle, but has asked for bandages instead of off days. Appling's ankle, which was fractured in an exhibition with the Cubs in March, remains such a problem that even the hardboiled Dykes offers excuses for the fellow. Catcher Luke Sewell, who has a split right second finger, will not start the trip. Henry Steinbacher, a regular outfielder until he injured a wrist, is carrying the bothersome arm in a cast, but after several more days may be able to resume work. Against the Tigers In today's opener Dykes plans on starting Jack Knott, but beyond that isn't exactly sure about his pitching. Tickets Finally Begin to Move for Title Battle New York, Aug. 13. (TP) Just when every one was giving up hope, long lines of the faithful appeared in front of the Twentieth Century Sporting club today and the Lou Ambers-IIenry Armstrong lightweight title battle appeared assured of a large if not rec-rd-breaking crowd. Mike Jacobs viewed the ticket buyers with enthusiasm and announced he expected a sellout when the two champions climb into Madison Square Garden's ring Wednesday night to battle for Ambers' lightweight crown end Armstrong's welterweight title, depending whether or not you listen to the New York state athletic com' mission. Conclude Heavy Drills. The two rivals wound up their heavy training today. There was nothing in either workout to switch the cdds that have ranged from 3 to 1 to 12 to 5 in favor of Armstrong, the Los Angeles colored fighter who holds the feather an'' welterweight crowns and is determined to become the first man to hold three major titles at one time. Armstrong went in against Lew Feldman today and after getting his sights on the fast, elusive Brooklyn lightweight knocked him flat with a left hook to the jaw. Feldman ep proximates Ambers' style enough to make this a cheering performance for Armstrong's rooters and Henry, who has been worried about his liming, was in high good humor at the end of the workout. Armstrong' at 135 rounds. Armstrong weighed 135 when he finished work in Pompton Lakes, N. J., today. He will punch the bag and shadow box tmoorrow and expects to weigh in at 133!.

Schalk from the record books is Bill Dickey of the Yankees. WARNEKE'S TOO GOOD The Cubs twice enjoyed leads over Lon Warneke and associate Cardinals yesterday in their Wrigley field homecoming, blew them both with consummate ease, and finally ab sorbed that 8 to 4 jolt Thus they booted an opportunity to gain on the Pirates, who lost, and the Giants, who were idle, and plunked into a tie for third place with the Cincinnati Reds. Frankie Frisch's musical marvels pounded Clay Bryant for thirteen hits before Warneke personally knocked him out in the eighth. Lon Finds Himself. Without playing the remaining eleven games scheduled with the Cubs, the Cardinals are better off in Cub competition than they were at the end of last year, when they were operating a ball club instead of a hillbilly band. Last year the Cards beat the Cubs five times while suffering seventeen defeats. Yesterday's symphonic victory was the sixth In eleven starts against the Cubs for the National league seventh placers. The Cubs were rather proud, at the time, of two runs they made in the first inning, little suspecting the lead would not survive the Cards' next turn at baL Warneke walked Hack to get things started, after which Herman caromed a single off Stu Martin's glove, Col lins attempted to sacrifice, but forced Hack, Owen to Gutteridge. Herman and Collins moved up as Warneke threw out Galan, and Reynolds drove Bill and Rip home with a single to center. The Cards had three runs home be fore the first out of the second inning was accomplished. Mize was held to a single on his powerful shot off the right field wall. Gutteridge followed up with a triple which scored Mize. Gutteridge followed Mize across the plate when the throw to the plate got away from O'Dea. Myers then hit a home run. Three easy outs followed. Another Margin Fades. The Cubs resumed the lead In the third when they did some sound batting for a pair of runs. Collins led off with a triple to the right field corner and trotted home on Galan's double to right. Augie scored on a single by Demaree. This second lead vanished In the sixth under the Cards' renewed home run firing. Slaughter walked and trotted home ahead of Medwick on Joe's fifteenth homer, which went into Waveland avenue. Bryant had to pitch like everything to hold the Cards to one run in the seventh. Owen and Warneke singled and advanced on Moore's sacrifice. S. Martin bounced a single off Her-man's glove, Owen scoring. Slaughter walked, and that loaded the bases with one out and Medwick and Mize coming up. Medwick fouled to Collins and Mize flied to Reynolds. Gutteridge's grounder at the start of the eighth bounced away from Herman for a single. Myers followed with a double to the left field corner, Gutteridge stopping at third. Owen was given an intentional pass, filling the bases. Warneke did just what he used to do frequently when he was a Cub in similar situations. Lon bashed a single to center which scored Gutteridge and Myers and put Owen on third. This thirteenth hit off Bryant won Claybourne a tepid bath. Jack Russell took his place, Owen was out at the plate on Moore's tap to Hack and two forceouts ended the inning. TIGERS PROMOTE ZELLER IN STAF REORGANIZATION Detroit, Mich., Aug. 15. (Announcement of the appointment cf John Zeller as general manager of the Detroit Tigers was made today by Walter O. Briggs Sr., president and owner. At the same time it was announced that Walter O. Briggs Jr., secretary-treasurer, had been elevated to the vice presidency formerly held by Mickey Cochrane, deposed manager. Until today Zeller was director of minor league affairs for the Detroit club. The announcement stated that the general manager's post had no connection with managing the club, the latter duty being left in the hand3 of Delmar Baker, former coach who was appointed to succeed Cochrane. Briggs said Zeller would retain control of the scouting and the Tiger farms. Zeller has been connected With the Tigers since 1923. Atlanta Crackers Beat Giants in Final, 8 to 6 The Atlanta Black Crackers defeated the American Giants in the final of a four game Negro American league series yesterday, 8 to 6.

French's appearance depends upon how his stomache ache is or is not aching. Curt Davis, he of the Dean deal, and Fiddler McGee, perhaps Sascha Frisch's best musician, will pitch for the Cards. In their last eight games against second division clubs the Cubs have won two and lost six. Pick Colored All-Star Nines; Meet Sunday Two squads of 20 players each, rep resenting the east and west, were named yesterday to play next Sunday in. Comiskejr park in the sixth annual colored all-star baseball game. Among the west's representatives will be Third Baseman Alec Radcliffe of the Chicago American Giants and Second Baseman Newt Allen of the Kansas City Monarchs, two veterans who have been elected to a starting position in all five previous games. The east also has a pair of five year all-star men in Shortstop dies Wil liams of the Pittsburgh Crawfords and Third Baseman Jud Wilson of the Philadelphia Stars. Giants Tlace Two Others. In addition to Radcliffe, the Ameri can Giants have placed Catcher Frank Duncan and Pitcher Willie Cornelius on the west's squad. Players of the two squads were named from members of the Negro American league, representing the west, and the Negro National league, which includes eastern territory, in a poll conducted by 20 colored news papers.

Ballston, Va., Aug. 15. Sammy Eaugh, whose passing brought the Washington Redskins a National league championship and himself the largest salary in professional foot - ball, is confident of giving another of his matchless performances in The Tribune's All-Star game in Chicago on Aug. 31. With ends such as Coach Ray Flaherty has assembled on this year's squad, it will be impossible to miss, the quiet, stringy Texan insists. Forward passing to Eaugh merely is throwing a football, a simple matter that can be mastered by any one with a ball and some one to catch it. "No pass is any good unless it is caught," he explained, with commendable logic. "You have never seen a forward passer win a game or make a yard on a pass unless somebody down the field fetched it in. Doggone me if I can see why I get so much publicity for beatin' the Packers last year or winnin' the title for the Redskins. Catchers Are Important. "Why, any 111' old gal from behind a ribbon counter can pitch a football, but you won't rind one in twenty that can catch it. Right here on our squad we got some great football players who have a hard time catching passes. The boy who won the All-Star game last year was Gaynell Tinsley. lie caught the ball and he had forty-six yards to go with It before the pass scored. Did you ever try to lug a football forty-six yards through the Tackers? No, sir, it's the catcher that makes a pitcher in this game, and we got 'em the best pass catchers in the business. They're going to make a big man out of me again this year because 1 just hop-pen to be the feller Flaherty has as- signed to chuck that thing. Why, doggone, boy, those ends would make a great passer out of any one. But the ends, all six of whom are six feet or more and who handled Baugh's first thirty-nine tosses with out an error in this morning's drill, are ready to make an argument out of it. Wayne Millner and Charley Malone, who caught most of Baugh's passes last season, particularly are opinionated on the matter. They ask, also with plausible logic, whether any one ever has caught a pass that sailed beyond reach, dropped short or came so fast that it could not be held. They'll Face the Star. Millner and Malone are scheduled to start against the All-Stars. Millner, a former Notre Dame star and a graduate from the All-Star squad, is the smallest of the group. He is six feet tall. Millner caught the three touchdown pssses Baugh threw against the Eears in last year's championship game. Malone, a rangy blond, came to the Redkins from Texa3 A. ard M., the school which gave Joe Routt to this year's All-Star squad. He towers 6 feet 4,3 inches and weighs 210 pounds. His height makes him an excellent target for the swift, direct tosses Baugh rifles over the heads of the secondary. During the early part of last season, the Baugh to Malone combination promised to become as famous as the Rockne to Dorais and Ilerber to Hutson teams. Wayne Comes Into Play. Later in the season, however, when opponents had begun to gang up on Malone, Flaherty switched the at lack and Millner played the starring r61e as a receiver in the defeat of the New York Giants, which gave the Redskins the eastern division title, and in the play off game in Chicago. Bob McChesney, b leet 1 inch, a former U. C. L. A. player, is the other veteran end on the squad. The other three are rookies. Hal Brad ley of Elon is the tallest, 6 feet 5. He weighs 215 pounds and comes to the Redskins with a reputation as a blocker and receiver. Masterson Is Big. Bob Masterson, 6 feet 1 inch and 195 pounds, and Bill Moore, the Hol lywood actor, complete the sextet, Masterson is a graduate of the UnL versity of Miami. Moore played at North Carolina two years ago, then went to Los Angeles, where he starred for the professional Bulldogs last fall. Norma Shearer, witnessing one of the Bulldog games, peered through her field glasses at the squad during a time out and exclaimed Why, there s a handsome man down there'. A casting director agreed with the actress and signed Moore to a con- WEEK-END SERVICE Direct to Tomahawk, H Milord Jet., HaUint, Minoo-qca, Woodrnii, Sayner, Staz Lake, LT.UnlonStation every Friday at 7:23 pm Central tine.

Phone Central 7e iff . -v? .-'-.-Z 111 ft Can All-Stars There is nothing like two daily football practices to put an edge on the appetites of the All-Star players. A visit to the commissary department at the Goodrich grill yesterday revealed that the collegians daily consume 300 pounds of potatoes, 75 quarts of milk, 60 pounds of steak, 15 dozen eggs, 20 gallons of iced tea, and 20 pounds of butter. Jim McDonald, Ohio State full back, put on his ape-man act the other nigni ana naa the boys doubling up "1 laughter ..Without the , aid of a makeup man Jim can make faces that would be the envy of Boris Karloff and other Hollywood Frankensteins. Frank Thomas of Alabama, who was head coach of the 1935 All-Star squad, was a visitor at yesterday's practice. Maj. Griffith, Big Ten ath letic commissioner, lunched with the All-Star coaching staf yesterday. Perhaps the All-Star game will pro duce another Sammy Baugh, this time In the person of Jack Robbins, the great passer from Arkansas who last year compiled a record every bit as noteworthy as Baugh's when the latter played in the same conference. Robbins completed 49 passes out of 113 attempts for a total gain of 870 yards. Robbins was co-captain of the Razorbacks last year with Jim Ben- tract In the Eulldog dressing room after the game. Moore has appeared in several pictures and plays a featured role in a forthcoming football film, "Touchdown parade." He weighs 205 pounds and is 6 feet 2 inches tall. He has been in camp two days, and has participated in three of the long passing drills which feature ever workout. His receiving record so far has been perfect. Rink Bond, the only casualty in the camp, reported to Trainer Baker that his twisted knee was mending rapidly. Legion Junior World Series to Open Aug. 30 Indianapolis, Ind Aug. 15. (A) American Legion officials announced tonight that the junior world's series to determine the winner of the Legion's annual national junior baseball tournament will be held Aug.

They comprised one of the greatest forward passing combinations ever produced in the southwest where the forward pass has been developed to a high degree of proficiency. In his sophomore year Robbins sky rocketed to fame by completing 93 passes for 1,218 yards. This is more than most teams attempt in a season. He completed 54 passes the following year and was a big factor in bringing the southwest conference title to Arkansas. The Robbins-to-Benton combination will be broken up this year, as the former Is under contract to the Chicago Cardinals, while the latter will join the Cleveland team. Pinky Rohm of Louisiana State receives more mail than any one in the All-Star camp. The boys say most of the missives are addressed in the same feminine handwriting. Pinky merely replies: "I ain't sayin'." Down south they say that Elmore Honeyboy Hackney of Duke was the greatest running back since Johnny Mack Brown did his stuff at Alabama. Hackney, who is a member of the All-Star squad, made 80 runs ranging from 13 to 72 yards during three years of college football. Last fall he returned 32 punts for a total of 415 yards. BEG YOUR PARDON The Interfraternity club's fifth annual luncheon for players and coaches of the College Ail-American football squad will be held in the La Salle hotel Thursday, Aug. 25. An item published in The Tbd3une said the luncheon would be held yesterday. 36 MEMBERS OF BEARS REACH TRAINING CAMP Thirty-six members of the Chicago Bears football squad arrived last night at St. John's Military academy. Delafield, Wis. Before the party left yesterday afternoon Harry Postaer, De Paul quarter back, and Bill O'Neill, Detroit half back, signed. I'ractice will begin this morning and continue daily. Broken Rib Puts Filchock on Sidelines Continued from first sport page line are Ralph Wolf, Ohio State; Pat Mccarty, Notre Dame, and Phil Dougherty, Santa Clara, at center, In the short sprints that concluded tne workout yesterday morning, Dougherty easily was the fastest of the trio. Outstanding In the group of left guards stationed on the short side of center are Alabama's Leroy Mon- sky; Joe Routt of Texas Aggies, and Joe Ruelz of Notre Dame. On the right side are Gust Zarnas of Ohio State, and Joe Kuharich of Notre Dame. Lou Midler of Minnesota was elected to the All-Star squad as a guard, has been shifted to tackle, a position he played for more than two seasons. Midler is a right tackle as are Al Barbartsky of Fordham and Clem Woltman of Purdue. The other tackle position has been manned so far by Frank KInard of Mississippi; Alex Kevorkian of Harvard; Vic Markov of Washington, and Marty Schreyer of Purdue. Since Markov and Schreyer were elected to start the game in Soldiers' field, unless a change is made, it is apparent that one of them must be replaced soon after the kickoff. rienty of Material. At left end are Perry Schwartz, California; John Kovatch, Northwestern, and Pete Smith, Oklahoma. Chuck Sweeney of Notre Dame; Jim Zachary, Purdue, and Jim Birr of Indiana, have been leading the fight for the right end position. This tabulation scarcely Includes more than half of the available line material. More difficult, if possible, is the task of arranging the best combination in the backfield. Hugh Wolfe of Texas and Andy Uram have been assigned to the right half position. Another change In assignment has sent Francis Gallagher, Yale center, to end. Gallagher reported about 15 pounds under his playing weight last fall. BY BOB BECKER. Oshkosh, Wis. I read with interest your articles on Big Beaver lake in Ontario. I have been unable to locate this lake on available maps. Will you tell me where this lake is, how you reach it and where the "jumping off" place is? You referred to the fact that the trout were in deep water. Do you think that the trout in Big Beaver lake are likely to be out of deep water by early September? R. A. HOT.T.TSTER. If you will consult a large scalsj Ontario map showing the country, east of the Soo you'll be able to follow these directions to the Big Beaver lake country. It's not surprising that you can't find the lake on a map. We gave names to this lake and four others in the chain when we were up there, and they will soon appear on a new map of that country now being made up. Here's the Route. The route Is from the Soo eastward either by the Canadian Pacific railroad or via the King's highway 17 to the little town of Thessalon. Hera you must travel north over an automobile road. Ask any gas station fo? a small map of the country north It shows you how to get on the only; road leading to Jobammageesbig lake. This gravel road, a winding twisting highway that is narrow, but in pretty good shape, brines you smack up against a closed gate. This is a forester's station. Beyond this gate you are in the Missisagi forest and game preserve. After the fop-ester checks you in you continue north again for five miles to Jobam-mageeshig lake. Trout May Be Quiet. We made this lake our base. You can make any number of trips from here to fish isolated lakes. Big Eeave? and the lakes in that chain are northwest of Jobammageeshig. You reach them in this way: first a short rida by car, then across the Missisagl rlvec by canoe, then a two mile hike oves? a pretty good trail. This part of thtj trip brings you to the first of the foux; lakes to be crossed by canoe and short portages. Then you come Into Big Beaver. Although the cool weather of September ought to improve the trout fishing up there, we doubt if the trout will be as active as they are in th month of May when the brooks speckles, and lakers are very close to the surface.
