And Coach Moslcy; apparently not too pleased with hk tribe's showing against the tricky splIt-T lust week had: his charges hard at work in preparation for Friday night's encounter. ' The Chicks spent lono; hours on blocking and tackling practice fit their Tenth Street practice field I yesterday Most of tlie work was done-ln a drizzling rain but It failed to halt the prallce sessions. The Tribe capped off the tough defensive drills with a hard .scrimmage thnt started on the practice field about 5 o'clock i>p.d ended under the lights of Haley Field some two hours later. , Tribe Looks Good The. Chicks continued to show the *arne pep : arid zip that has carried them to easy victories In their first three :outings du.rlng yesterday's drills. Their tackling was sharp nr.d their blocking looked improved over what It'was at Poplar Bhlff last Friday night. Line Coach Bill Stancll, who scouted the Rangers' game; with Ml. Vernon. III., last week, had this to say about the Chick's' Friday night foes: "They.hflve a good ball club. They got a lot of loueh breaks that'cost them.the ball game. They fumbled quite a bit and^thelr offense wasn't as sharp as It should have been.' But he wouldn't .commit himself on the Chicks' chances. His only comment along Ibis, line was "We can take them If we continue to play heads-up, hard, aggressive foot- .ball." The Chicks spent «' long session on nishlnff the punt receiver during 'yesterday's practice'. Uuder the direction of:Stand! the ends and tackles charged hard at the receiver In m/full speed drill.

(jp)— Sea^uls by the ' thovisands descended on this district and waged war on hordes of grasshoppers. By the time they bad rilled themselves, the grass- ranks were depleted. A death In the lamlly of early Knglish millers was made known by leaving the windmills in an "X" position several days, x .he Missouri Tiger.s .season opener with Clcmson at Columbia Saturday. We'll substitute against Clemson but it will be only a few tnen at the time," Faurot said. He estimated Hint the "first" team ought to play about 40 of the sixty minutes. Morale of the players Is one of the factors involved. Fanrot feels most athletes prefer to work on both offense and defense rather than specinlizing In one or the other. - Tlie Inventor of the split T formation -still believes In substitutions —just as he did back In the nild- 30s at Missouri when often three or four tennis played In a single game. ( But suUslllultons In the new plans will be based on physical condition and the tactical need for the moment. ' Material also is Hie guiding reason for Faurol's decision. Lack Reserve* Faurot said Missouri Isn't too deep all the way through aud Hint he couldn't substitute in some i>osts without losing strength whether on offense or defense. "In the second place," Faurol continued, "I believe the boys will like it belter Ihe way we are go- Ing to play It. Last year even some of the fellows who were getting the assignments on offense seemed litle unhappy with the situation. And I'm sure the defensive playe would like to get a chance to work on offense." Missouri may have lost the services yesterday of one of If.s double duly backs, Mike Ghnouly.

Tills would make a mere formality of the week-end windup that was figured to be loaded with high tension stuff. The so-called magic number for the Yankees Is two. For (he Phillies It's three. That means any combination of those numbers—In victories for the Yanks or Phils and defeats for their challengers—would clinch Ihc pennant. The Yankees moved today Into Philadelphia for two games with the last-place Athletics before finishing off against Boston at Fenway Park. Could Clinch li Today A Yankee victory linked with a single loss for Detroit and Hoslon thus would return the Bronx Bombardiers to- familiar world scries surroundings without further ado. The Detroit Tigers, their once flaming pennant hones chilled by a fast week letdown, met the cantankerous St. Louis Browns at Detroit- Boston entertained Washington In a dnublcheader. Both must keep vanning lo stay "alive." The Phillies, meanwhile.—already long overdue in staging their flat' clinching party — moved inlo New York where the first item of business was a doubleheader with the New Yolk OtanUs. Tlie challenging Brooklyn Dodgers, live games In arrears, played the Boston Braves twice at Ebbels Field. The, Phillies could clinch by winning two while the Dodgers spilt or by splitting while the Dodgers lost a pair. Tlie Tigers' pennant hopes, already ebbing, all but 'disappeared yesterday when they could get no better than a split with the Browns. The Brownies won the opener, 3-1, behind Don oJhnson after the Tigers left a doz«n men on bases. They were ahead, 3-1, In the aftermath until George Kell unloaded the bases In the eighth lo help tile Tigers lo a 5-3 triumph. * They had a chance lo pick up ground on the Yankees, who lost a weird game to the Washington Senators, 11-9. before snatching the second, 10-7. im Ktlmlnalrd How Louis and Charles Compare Philadelphia Brooklyn .

W>J—The third place Boston Braves ended their home season out of the National pennant fight and In the red financially. The slim gathering or 1.987 attending yesterday's finale-made the total home attendance 944,310. This was a drop of more than 37,000 from last year and more than a half a million fewer lhatt thi tribe drew In its pennant winning year of 1948. Poor weather was advanced b> a club spokesman as the prlnclpft cause of the.attendance drop. All home games were televlsei this season. They won't be next season.

ZT, — (AP)~Jo« Louis, who re**r«cl two years ago, batflei Er,i«rd :har)e« at the Yankee Stadium tonight In an effort to )ecome the first heavyweight itleholder in history to re- rain the prized crown. A fresh flood of char lei money las dropped the price on the title ight to 5 to * in favor at tht irown bomber. If the odds hold up until the » p.m. fCSTi fight time. Louis may enler the ring at the shortest odds since he flvst won the heavyweight crown from Jimmy Braddoek in Chicago on June Tl. 1937. Crowd of 30,000 expected Nol 'since his second scrap with. Max Schmeling 12 years ago ha.i Louis been held in such low esteem by the bookmakers. That night he was the 5 to 9 choice when he annihilated the Uhlan In one round. A crowd of around 30.0m, paying from $3 to $30, Is expecled to visit the big ballpark. Another 26,000,000 fans probably will watch the 15-roimd boul via television and millions more will hetir U over a national CBS radio network. CBS also Is telecasting the show.
