WHORIC, Sports Editor ^·^ BITS HERE AND THERE Next summer's bathing s.tyles, usually determined on southern beaches the picccdmg winter, will lessen the material in the feminine swim suit to a degree almost approaching immodesty, fashion expert.; in Florida say. The feminine b a t h e r is now appealing with scantier bra tops and briefer trunks, exposing seveial more inches of midrift than in preceding years . . . Johnny Vandei Mecr's tonsil operation marked the third time that the Cincinnati pitcher has h id a full- grown set removed . . . Marion Phillips, fresh co-ed who broke into print with 80 reasons why men give her "a pam in vhe neck," ran second to John Brennan, 201-pound football dnd urcstlmg stai, who got into a fight with the campus g,rls by saying "four out of five women are pretty and the fifth comes, to Michigan," in naming Michigan's ice carnival queen It was a climax to some monkeythming at Ann Arbor . . . Merle Haley, Baylor, grid lineman, is a son of Mrs Bridget Haley of New Salem and the 'la-e Anthony Haley of Broad Ford, and a brother of Red Haley, Newark hurlcr scheduled to get a trial with tri Yankees . . . Eric Boon, lightwcignt champion of the Butlsh empire, claims that he's after Henry Armstrong Boon, 19-year-old blacksmith's son, developed a sock in both hands by wielding a sledge hammer in his father's shop. He has already had more than "00 fights and is thinking seriously ol invading the United States and when he doesi wants to take on Armstrong, who holds both light and welter crowns. "His style is made to order for me," says Boon . . . When Minnesota's athletic clubs build up impressive winning streaks Northwestern will crack''em every time That happened to the 21-game football spree and 19- straight basketball game card Earle Sande, once the country's leading jockey, who booted home three Kentucky Derby winners, was named the outstanding trainer in 1938 He trained Stagehand, biggest money winner who earned $220,495 for Maxwell Howard. Willis Sharpe Kilmer was voted leading breecdr, Johnny Longdcn leading jockey and Alfred Wwynne Vandcrbilt, leading sportsman The deer, like most wild animals, weight fighters apparently their winning ways alter BRITISH CHAMP TALKS Over in England where the heavy- - · - - - · - pattern Johnny Bull's payment ol the post-war debt to Uncle Sam, there's one by the name of Len Harvey, who rules the neavy division, a throne surrendered by Tommy Farr who has yet to win an American decision in five starts. Harvey says Joe Louis has a weakness and would like to prove It in the ring some time--for n stipend, of course. 'If Tommy Farr can go 15 rounds v,ith Louis, I don't sec any icason why I shouldn't give him a tough go Louis can punch but there's no rule in boxing that says you have to let a man crack you with his best punch. My rule is never to give- one to land two blows but to give non^ and land three Notice Louis' feet and the position he strikes from. They tell much about his weakness," said Harvey. Most ot Louis' opponents, however, don't have murh recollection of the earthquake that scored a direct hit Of course, Len would have to say this: 'I should have been a sensation in the United States."

It is not a special sense but highly developed. Deer blaze their trails through scent- secreting elands above the hocks m his hfnd legs When these glands trc removed, the deer thus handicapped is easily lost. The mule deer, which has a high bounding gait in rur.nirs and consequently covers great stretches ot giound in one leap, has scent-secretlns glands about six times as large and potent as the Virginia deer. The Virginia deer is on the ground more so does not need to have so powerful n scent each time he touches the ground . . . They've never been in the ring together but Maxie Baer and Tony Galcnto can stage a real forensics duel. Bad as the New Jersey bartender might be, Maxte has a lot ot crust in saying he's a detriment to the best of interests of boxing The Livcrmoie Lothario must have forgotten that he was supposed to fight Joe Louiss, not lay down.
