Foremost among Professor Beard's pupils will be one John T. Wmsett, a ponderous outfielder from McKenzie, Terin. Ordinarily the impatient Grimes would have no truck with a fellow like "Long Tom' Winsett because he has what the ball players call "two left feet.' Tom just can't make a right turn, it seems, when he's running bases or chasing fly balls But "Long Tom" can belt that apple, and Grimes needs him in the lineup for his punch. Before Long Tom" joined the flatbush crew from Columbus for an autumnal tryout last year, he had hit American Association pitchin with such venom that he won th A.

He bunched 21 homers in one month, beating Babe Kuth s best mark by four for that month. So you can see why Grimes wants special attention paid to the 25 year- old left-handed clouter irom Tennessee. Professor Beard, after one Jlimpse at his pupils, says it won't be long before Brooklyn vjll have a whole flock of Ben Chapmans circling bases.

First in the shuffling file was Otto Foelsch, a SO year old former soldier who drilled for five years in this same arniory as a member of the 212th coast artillery. Discharged in 1905 when a kick by a horse took his sight, Foelsch had never returned to the armory until now. With No Confusion. ' Following him came Tom McDonnell, fountain pen salesman- Tony Ballista, broom and mop manufacturer; Sigmund Malinowski, 20 year old WPA worker; Carl Hice, tall, intelligent instructor in Braille; 59 year old Bill Meyer, a lower Manhattan news vendor- Peter Finnegan, who makes talking books for the blind, and Julian Diez, Louie Marisca and Isadore Schlein, all piano tuners. The crowd, scattered around the hall converged in the seats behind the two alleys where the two blind teams were to bowl and was amazed when, at the signal to begin, these 10 began to roll without confusion. "You Gotta IVoolworth!" Using bowling terminology of their own, they answered quickly to calls of their two coaches, Jerry Wood and Carl Stutman, who told them after each roll which pins remained standing. When, for example, one of the Players left the 5 and 10 pins standing,.his coach would say "Too bad, you gotta Woolworth!" Rice, who averaged 205 in eague competition last week scored 196 in his final game, after" rolling 160 and 116.

WASHINGTON, (/P) -- ''Works Progress Administration officials replied "no" to appeals of a large delegation of Minnesota public officials £01- more generous federal relief. Faced with an estimated relief cost of $17,000,000 for the next two years, the delegation requested addition of 20,000 persons monthly on WPA rolls and an increase from $5 to. $13 a man month for non-labor expenditures. Aubrey Williams, acting administrator in the absence of Harry Hopkins, informed the delegation, said State Representative Carl J Eastvold, Ortonville, Minn., and State Senator Gerald Mullin, Minneapolis, that the demands could not be met because of: lack of funds. . He assured th eemissaries, however, no reductions would" be made in the current 45,000 persons on WPA rolls in Minnesota. LILY PONS' LATEST FILM HAS PLEASING MIXTURE Lily Pons, Jack Oakle, Gene Raymond, iUlscha Auer, Lucille Ball, frank Jenks and Herman Bing--sounds like quite a mixture, doesn't it? It's a good one though--the .cast of "Girl From Paris," at the Cecil through Thursday. The press books call it "delightful and original." It isn't original --its story is about the same as MOVIE MENU CECIL -- "That Girl From Paris" through Thursday. Palace--"Criminal Lawyer" a n d "The Mighty Trove" through Thursday.

Father Dies Suddenly After Observing 41st Wedding Anniversary HANLONTOWN--Coach Brauer left for his home Friday at Hull, to assist his parents in celebrating their forty-first wedding anniversary Saturday. Following the day's observance Mr. Brauer, Sr., died of a heart attack. He had not been ill. He was about 70 years of age. Mis. Jerome Jacobsen is assisting in the high school filling the place of Mr. Brauer who is at Hull attending his father's funeral. Havnen Again Heads Rake Shipping Group a dozen other film-opera star- musical 1 comedies--but it is delightful. It's not the slightest highhat from a musical standpoint; there's more swing music · than there is opera; even Lily lends her beautiful coloratura to a syncopated version of "Blue Danube" that's a high spot o£ the picture; and it's one of the best and funniest comedies in a long while. Of course Miss Pons is the star but the boys who support her combine to produce a lot of laughs that make the picture flow along smoothly and easily. For the greatest improvement of any comic, we are ready to cast a vote for Oakie who is getting better in every picture. IN THE MAILBAG RAKE--The annual" business meeting of the Rake Farmers' Shipping association was held at the city hall Monday afternoon. Carl Havnen was re-elected for a two year term as .president and the. following.directors -were elected for two year terms': G. E. Tenanger and Johnnie Jarshaw reelected and L. B.

The National league's No. 1 batter stayed in Sarasota, Fla., still refusing to come to terms. In this week's mailbag is found some very interesting data concerning Hollywood, written by one who visited the movie capital a short time ago--Wayne Frantz, 203 Second street southwest. Says Mr. Frantz: "Movie work does not necessarily need such a beautiful face for a person to be a . success. This might be called 'glorifying the hands and legs.' Girls and also men who possess extraordinary hands, nails, etc., and shapely limbs have as much chance in Hollywood as the beautiful chorus girl or star--for weeks they are trained as to the correct manner to walk,' hold-their-hands and the distance - to stand or move about before the camera. "It's hard, strenuous work and very tiresome indeed,.not to mention the intense heat one is subjected to while working on closeup shots under the strong spots'. After these rehearsals have reached their perfection and the proper costumes have been adjusted the final grinding of the camera begins--hands, hands, hands. "They are-photographed holding books, - writing letters, displaying jewelry, etc. And legs clad in sheer hose with smart shoes, etc. After the desired shots have been obtained these cuts are taken to the exposure room where they are trans formed on to the mail film. "That's the life of a hand or limb poser, and although their face or figure never appears on the screen, they glory in seeing Jean Harlow write a closeup note written by their own hands or see their shapely legs holding up the beautiful carriage of some prominent star. "Therefore you see, double exposure .plays a very important part in our movies of today." To Miss Susanna T.: Your .Lola Lane synopsis was insufficient. The dramatic' highlights of a sasnweight murder trial are en- d ' ir j ,,?, n ? , of the climactic scenes of "Criminal Lawyer," ro- m a n t i c melo- d r a m a starring Lee T r a c y and Margot Grahame in half of the double feature program which opened Wednesday at the Palace. Also included ' in the cast of "Criminal Lawyer" are Eduardo -- -- . Ciannelli, E r i k Rhodes, Betiy Lawford and Frank M. Thomas. "The Mighty Trove," featuring Noah Beery, Jr., Hobart Cavanaugh and Barbara Read, is second of the two featuresilt is based on an Albert Paysoif' Terhune novel. - THURSDAY THE MUSICAL ON ICE "ONE IN A MILLION" with SONJA HENIE ADOLPHE MENJOU JEAN HERSHOLT Kids lOc--Students 16c Adults 26c Easter Dance HANFORD HOTEL Mon.,March 29 JIMMY FLEMING ORCHESTRA Coronation of King and Queen.
