Smith said the retirement would lie only temporary ami that the 1938 champion would resume training next year. Bnl many horsemen who have watched the 'Biscuit's slow re covery from a ligament Injury suffered at Santa Anita park in February were quick to count the proverbial ten over a remarkable career. Their arguments were numer qus. Here are .just a few: The chance of recovery from th injury--a ruptured suspensory ligament in the left foreleg is re mote even after firing. A simila ailment permanently retired Top Row, winner of the 1936 Santa Anita. Seabiscuit will be seven years old in January. He still need 536,000 to push his earnings o 5340,880 past the Sun Beau mark of $376,744. Only one American flat runner, Exterminator, was able to amass such a sum in his seventh year. The chunky son of Hard Tack gains weight in tremendous proportions if not worked. He was 200 pounds overweight after a two month layoff, and In a year of rest might fain as ranch as 500 pounds, seriously hampering his training. All during that year the opposition will be growing stronger and the Biscuit can hardly improve A large number of turf writers believe his stablemate. Kayak II winner of the $100,000 classic Saturday, could defeat him now on a weight-for-age basis. Against all this there was only Smith's record of training wizardry--and his hope. Greenberg Primes for Runs-Batted-in Mark .LAELAND Fla., (£)_Always willing to oblige, Hank Greenberg is going after the American league runs-batted-in record this season for the Detroit Tigers because "the boss wants it." The boss is owner Walter O Briggs, so Big Hank will take a crack at Lou Gehrig's record of 184 HBI for a season this summer. Stengel Smiles at Newcomers' Hitting BRADENTON, Fla., «)--That smiie on Casey Stengel's face ihursday came from the fact that his Boston Bees' newcomers may be the answer to the Boston Bees' lack of batting punch in recent years.

I gave myself two days to think over the situation and I still can't make up my mind as to the rights and wrongs, the ups and downs of the whole business. I wish you my readers, would let me tell you what I think I know about the resignation of Dr, Sutherland as head football coach at Pittsburgh, and then serve as a jury to decide who is right and who is wrong. Coach Made School? The .case of Jock Sutherland: He want there to coach football when Pittsburgh wasn't a power but wanted to be one. He made the school one. A great coach, he took the players that were furnished him, many of whom had beea subsidized, and year after year moulded football teams that rated . one-two-three nationally. He asked no questions. In fart, he probably hustled in more than a few players himself, which was perfectly natural, being as a foot- aall coach's livelihood depends on the caliber of his teams. His teams earned the money for a great stadium, brought Pittsburgh national publicity, and, through it ill, he conducted himself as the horough gentleman he is. His earns played cleanly, and both lis players and himself were respected wherever they went. No Questions Asked It was not his business to question the athletic standards of the university. He was hired as a foot- all coach, and he did as good a ob as any man in the country could have done. His players al- vays stuck by him. They came irst with_ Jock, and those who hinfc of him as a dour, sour Scot hould know some of the facts bout his kindliness and under- tanding in dealing with his foot- oall players, on and off the *Md. The case of the university: Atter 11, the university, as a whole, is more important institution than ts football team or its football each. And there .is no denying hat, right now, it is beter known or its football eleven than for its cademic standards. Nor can one eny that Pittsburgh was getting n unsavory reputation as a school vhere athletic talent meant more Jian anything else. Neither Has Case I have heard more than once .hat unless there was a change of deals, let us say, that other col- eges simply were going to drop ie Panthers from their schedules oo, who has the right to direct ie policy of the school, the offi- lals; or the football coach? After -, it is the officials' business to etermine when football has erved its purpose and when it hould be de-emphasized. Re- lember, too, that the university lade Coach Sutherland as much ; he made it. No football coach -as ever better than his mafe- al. Pittsburgh gave him good noney and good players for a ong time. Now the school appar- ntly has decided it has had nough, and would like to go pure." I wouldn't like, to render a ver- ict, but if I had to I believe I -ould throw it out of court on the rounds that neither side had a ase. To lapse into legal phrase- ogy, it looks like even-Stephen me. (Coprrtff, I9K, The Vnitei FTMI) A. B.C.

He said the average person is inclined to treat foreign affairs as entirely out of his domain but the fact is that they affect us in three ways, economically, politically and psychologically, and he proceeded to show the tremendous repercussions f r o m changing governments and emerging religions. Rabbi Gordon said this and other countries are forced to recognize political set-ups in the totalitarian governments and also to face the fact that they have penetrated into the economic and political life of South America.

Dykes indicated Thursday the SAM'N RALPH CRACK MARKS Score 28-Total in Winning Round of Four-Ball Contest CORAL GABLES, Fla., CUP.)-The 28 posted by Ralph Guldahl and Sammy Snead for nine holes in winning the international four- ball championship is a record that will be remembered when most of others are forgotten. Guldahl, national open champion the last two years, and Snead, leading money winner o£ 1938, played one of the most remarkable rounds ever recorded when they routed Horton Smith and Paul Runyan, P. G. A. champion, 7 and 6, Wednesday. They each won §1,000, and the boys who follow the links from coast to coast for their meat and potatoes are thanking: their tacky stars that all the tournaments are not four-ball affairs. After Snead had curled a 25- foot putt on the 18th to end the morning round all even, he and Guldahl started out on the hottest single round ever seen in this part o£ the country. The Miami-Biltmore course is one of the better layouts o£ the south, and all the Messrs Snead and Guldahl did was knock seven strokes off par 35 for the first nine of the afternoon round. Snead started it with an ea^Ie three on the 19th, his second in succession. But it was Guldahl who took command as they won the next three. He dropped a 40 foot putt for a birdie on the 20th, and a 25-footer on tSe 22nd for another. Snead added another birdie on the 24th when he canned a 40- foot putt to put his side 5-up. The next two were halved, and then Guldahl pushed in a birdie three on the 27th for an individual nine-hole card of 30--five under par. Their combined 28 was two strokes under the lowest nine- hole card ever posted in the 16- year history of the four ball. With a six-up lead, it was only a matter of time, and after halving the 28fh Guldahl shot another birdie three for a 7-up lead. When Smith and Runyan could do no better than halve the 30th with CHARLES CITY--Miss Phoebe Woodiwiss, a missionary teacher in Jerusalem, who has been here on a rear's furlough, has gone to Rocklon, 11!., to visit friends.
