Vymouth, Ventura, Rock Falls, Swaledale Win [ Say Pullman Floor Fine Bed After Trip to Alaska |lji :(= _ * * * £ - - * si IfJ By OSCAR FRALEV ItlVew York, (U.R--Major league IjTseball players always have been I' ted for their demand of super- uxe traveling conveniences but sre are 5 of these gentlemen 0 Tuesday and henceforth will lard even a draft board as the tome of luxury. They are Frankie Frisch, man- »r of the Pittsburgh Pirates; nny Lithwhiler and Stan Musial the Cardinals; Dixie Walker of 1 Dodgers and Hank Borowy of e Yankees. They composed an | ·Jtertainment troupe in to Alaska I jd Aleutian army bases--and llanj here on an upper beith is liictly seventh heaven. ''I could sleep peacefully on a i Pullman floor even if the sleepwalkers wore hobnailed boots," Musial grinned . "Because, Bub, that would compare with the Aster against some o£ the places we've been, and how we reached them." An account of their adventures convinces you that they mean just that for it includes flying in 1'og, snow and rain; automobile rides in blizzards; jolting juunts in jeeps; weird walks in a DO-mile gale and a perilous ride in a motorized handcar at night when a train might be coming from the other direction at any time along the single track. Borowy, who beat the Cards in the 3rd game of the 1943 world series, told of one of the roughest passages. We started up this mountain one night in a blizzard' a n d - o u r car was driven by a soldier who knew the road very well," he said. "You couldn't see 8 feet in front of you and the road was a sheet of ice, well, the nex*. day when I saw this road 1 darned near fainted. It ran up the side ot this mountain and there was a sheer drop into the ocean where the water is so cold you can't live in it more than 15 minutes." Musial was in another machine, trailing Borowy's car, and the ) driver o£ the second automobile didn't know the road. So its driver asked Musial i£ it would be all right to turn back. "All I said was: 'Hell yes,' " Musial said, "and it was awfully good to start back down. I had heard about how that road dropped off into the ocean." Borowy told of reaching the crest and how the men had to walk with hand clasped in a human chain/to prevent being blown away by a 90-mile gale that hammered the breath from their lungs. A sudden shift in the\vind knocked him down, cutting his leg severely and causing him to spend a night in a cold-wind-shaken dis- .isary, huddled under pile of blankets. There was an attempt, too, to reach a base where no one had been for months, with their pilot trying to slide in under an impenetrable web o£ fog and a night in the motorized hand car, bumping along a rough track at 50 miles an hour. "Going into a tunnel you didn't know whether there was a train coming the other way," Litwhiler said, "and it wasn't much comfort when the soldier driving the thing told us to keep our lingers crossed." Settle for an upper berth? What do you think?

Living in a modest flat on Chicago's north side. Chick, at the age of 53, is enjoying being a successful businessman. This late chapter in his life actually amounts to the climax of his ca- eer. As vice president of a Chicapo dairy. Chick has enough time to play weekend solf and compete in an occasional tournament. Although he announced his retirement from tourney solf a decade ago, he never has been able to rid himself of the competition bug:. The memories of the man who won 52 amateur titles, a record crowned by the feat of .taking the national amateur and national open the same year, 191G, also must include a dark side. After winning his Slli western amateur title in 1923, Evans lost heavily on the slock market and was forced to file for bankruptcy. This eventually led to a nervous breakdown 2 years later. His game' never was nuitc the same afterwards. "Aim for a success in business and refuse to be exploited by business interests," Chick intently advises young amateur golfing enthusiasts. x Among his most effervescent memories is the time he beat a young upstart by the name of Bobby Jones in the semi-finals of the 1020 western amateur at Memphis. "I refused to be overwhelmed by this kid Jones, who had just won the southern amateur, by about 15 strokes," Evans recalls. "I bet heavily on myself. "I blew a 3-up lead on the last 9, but finally won. The match was decided when Jones missed a 3-foot putt and I sank a 4-footer after coming out of a trap. "Never will forget what happened in the locker room. Jones sent his putter crashing down the aisle. It broke in half- When Jones finally cooled off. he had the club taped up--using it with deadly ei- RICKEY SAID IT; DIDNT MEAN IT Says Double-A Clubs Will Play Baseball P h i l a d e l p h i a , (^--Branch Rickey said !t, but he didn't mean it the way it sounded. That was the explanation the president of the Brooklyn Dodgers offered for his recent comment that he "didn't see how the double A baseball clubs" were going to get through the season. "When I made that statement I was thinking in terms ot the manpower shortage only as applied to our Montreal club, and not on the whole double A pic- Speaking to reporters after addressing a breakfast club Rickey, said "The Double A clubs are going to play this year. We arc going to play in Montreal as long as we are able to field a team, but at the moment I made that statement the problem of obtaining enough players looked puzzling." BASEBALL AIDED WAR CHARITIES 2 Leagues Contributed $2-, 130,000 in 2 Years Chicago. (U.R)--Organized baseball, beginning its 3rd wartime season, has contributed more than 52,130,000 to the war effort during the past 2 years, the American league announced Tuesday. The 2 major leagues raised S"25,10G for war relief in 1843 and Sl.054,953 in 1042, while the minor leagues contributed an estimated §350,000 for a total of §2,- 130,059, the league said. The American league raised 5151,439 with a program of 8 relief games during 1943, while the national circuit topped that figure with 5175,118 with 8 similar charity games. Pittsburgh collected the largest sum in the National league with $35,844, and Chicago deposted S32.G50 from a night program with Washington's Senators. Baseball's equipment f u n d , which is designed to supply base- bail bats, gloves and balls to soldiers in American camps and overseas, \vas fattened by $65,174 through the major leagues' Ives Needs 9 l / 2 Point Average for Rest of Season for New High Iowa City, (fP)-~An average of 9Vi points a game for the rest o[ I o w a University's basketball schedule would give Dick Ives, 17 year old freshman forward, another record to add to his list. Ives has made 1G1 points in 9 games this season, statistics show. The Iowa record is 245 points, set £y Tommy Chapman in 20 games during the 1941-42'season. Forward Dave Banner is the 2nd highest Iowa scorer with 120 points. Danner is high point man for Big 10 games, having made 60 o£ his points in the Hawkeyes' 4 conference contests. The cage kids are the only team in Iowa's history to reach the halfway mark of the schedule with a perfect record. Iowa has 488 points to date; opponents have 304. By BUCKY O'CONNOR Chicago, (A 1 )--Don Grate, Ohio Stale's sensational U ft. 4 in. sophomore forward, zoomed into a tie for first place in the Big Ten scoring race Monday night as he led the Buckeyes to their 3rd conference victory, an 83-44 drubbing of Chicago. Sinking 10 field goals and 5 free throws, the star of last year's Buckeye freshmen tacked 25 points^ to his previous 60 and now is 1 deadlocked with Stan Patrick of Illinois for top honors in the point- Rcttinff department. Grate, who is 4F in the draft, has the more impressive record, however. His 85 points were achieved in 4 games while Patrick required 6 to reach the same figure. Inasmuch as the mini are idle this week and Ohio will meet Michigan in a 2 game set at Ann Arbor Friday and Saturday, Grate can be expected to run up a comfortable margin of leadership. The next 2 contenders, Paul Hoffman and Chuck Haag of Purdue, w i t h 75 and 72 points, respectively, also will meet no conference competition this week.

Braves Lose McCarthy, 1 st Baseman, to Navy Boston. (U.R)--Johnny McCarthy, first baseman, was the latest member of the Boston Braves Tuesday to answer the call to the colors. President Bob Quinn of the Braves announced that McCarthy had been inducted into the navy at his home in West Frankfort. 111.

Dr. Lambert said such a change would block the trend toward skyscraping goal tenders, stimulate field shooting, speed up the game and eliminate the necessity of an official staying under the coal most of a game. Chances are they'll find it, for the Irish have shown no great strength in splitting 10 contests.
