LAST 'NNING RALLY FAILS 111 Hill i nciMysoKrs XI &WDE M By HENRY McLEMORE. United Press Staff Correspondent, i CHICAGO, June 16. Not since the handsome Dr. Jekyll's potent brew got f the best of him, has any man man- i aged such a startling metamorphis as that accomplished by Robert Moss Grove during the months between the end of the 1031 baseball season and the beginning of the 1832 grind. If s downright miraculous and makes a man wonder if the day of miracles is passed. This time last year, Robert Moses, who is known to the trade as Lefty, was just about the ornriesc cuss in baseball. No, he was the ornriest cuss. You couldn't talk to him for fear of getting bitten; couldn't snap his picture for fear of getting camera, plate and tripod draped1 gracefully about your neck. When he wasn't out there in the middle of the lawn pitching, the man lone-wolfed around with a look on his scowling pan that said better than words, '"Keep out, posted, no trespassing, and advance at your own risk." In short, Robert Moses was a conceited, smug, satisfied headache. Compared to him, Burleigh Grimes was all sweetness and light. Now, ladies and gentlemen zet a load of the 132 Grove, Why, he is just about the sweetest character you ever knew. He smiles, greets strangers with a cheery "Hello," and, wonder of wonders, actually welcomes interviewers who seek his opinion of such pressing matters as the "future of the fast ball," "how much longer do you think you can hold up." and " Is it true the Athletics aren't a happy, happy family?" . Last year he greeted interviewers with a look that would freeze first class gin and such encouraging remarks. "-Saw, I ain't got nothing to Olympic OpK amBum.

Naturally there have been dozens of reasons advanced for sudden right- about-faee, this switch from ogre to It begins to look' more and more like the great open spaces will .produce an other Olympic shot put champion. Bur- sweetheart, so to speak. The reasons iy John Kucb behemoth from Kansas. range from a change in diet to a vision Lefty had one night after he had frightened a waitress by leaving a dime tip. The most logical explanation, however, has to do with the Philadelphia snorts writers and the manner won the l&Jjf title, establishing an Olympic record of 52 feet and 11-16 of an inch. An now Rhea, a Nebraska Oornhusker, surpasses that mark in qualifying for the final OlvmDic trials , at Stanford next month. The Junior League leaders, the Elks team, continued their inarch of triumph at Miller-Sibley Field Wednesday evening by defeating the Exchange 11-10, just escaping a tied score and perhaps worse in the fifth and final inning. Whether because of the recent offer of a suit of readymades for the best batter in the league or for some other reason, the fielders on both sides were kept breathless all evening running after the ball and getting it back to headquarters. Dalmaso. third base for the Exchange, who had had only one hit in 11 trips to the plate, suddenly caught the idea and knocked the ball all over the place, getting a single, a double and a home run. McCarthy, catcher and cleanup hitter for the Exchange, got a single and a double. The real mean batter of the Elks, was McClelland, with a triple and two doubles, while his teammate. Catcher June Foster drove out two two-bag gers. It was a trying evening for the pitchers. Coulter, of the Exchange, went the route although he had pitched against the Trust Co. team two eve nings before. After Brown had been reached for three hits and four runs in the third. Pangcllo was substituted to go on lefthanding for the Elks. He tamed the Exchange for one inning and then in the fifth, when the shades of ni?ht were falling fast, got the scare of his young life when two doubles and a single and a base on balls resulted in three runs and placed the tying run on the paths. Davis connected squarely, but the grounder went to McClelland who had nothing to do but to step on second base, forcing Scott for the final out of the game. With the Elks retired rimless in the first, the Exchange made three runs in their half. 'Marchibroda, who had a double an 1 a single in the game, hit for two bases and scored on a single by McCarthy. Baellic, who walked, scored on a wild pitch. McCarthy scored on a single b- Dalmaso but Judson lined into a fast double play. The Elks tiec the score right away. Nester and Miller walked. Nestor got in on a wild throw, but Miller was nailed at the plate when Beach grounded to short. Foster doubled and scored on the triple by (McClelland. The Elks j went out in order in The second. The Exchange ffot one ahead in the third for-a while when Beith singled and scored on a gronmler by Foster. The Exchange looked like winners when they counted four. Marchibroda sin-1 gled. C. Cramer struck out. Baeillic walked. McCarthy doubled and then Dalmaso hit one that rolled to the pond for a home run. The Elks got two ahead by scoring five in the fourth on a couple of doubles and some other things.- They got two more in the fifth on a string of four hits by Beach. McClelland, E. Cramer and Burgert. They wore four runs ahead, but this lead nearly all melted away when the Exchange developed a sudden liking for Pangallo's curves and zet a base on balls, two doubles and a single. They fell one run short of tying it up, though. The following is the present standing of the clubs: W. L. Pet.

Ithea heaved the 16-pound ing Grove that he was missing a swell chance to Ibe a national hero like, say, Babe Ruth and Christy Matheweon. Lefty agreed with his friend and promised to be human. It was a hard task at first, he having almost forgot-' ten how to laugh and smile. But he applied himself diligently and success finally was his. - TWO FIRES TO DESTROY HOME.

This is a fair question, and here is our reply: A marvelous new testing machine, recendy developed, scientifically proves that these blades have never before been approached in keenness. We cannot discuss the nature or details of this machine because it is being patented. But we can tell you that it measures microscopic dimensions with unfailing accuracy revealing with mathematic exactness, actual degrees of razor -bladj sharpness. So when we state that today's Gillette blades are the sharpest we have ever made we are basing our assertion upon The Gillette Blue Super-Blade The $2 Kroman De Luxe blade has been withdrawn from production. We offer the Blue Super-Blade as its successor. This sensational blade is far superior to the Kroman and costs considerably less. You pay only a few cents more than for the regular blade and get unmatched shaving comfort. Its extraordinary shaving performance will convince you that the Blue Blade is the sharpest ever produced. A blue color has been applied to the blade for easy identification. It is contained in a blue package, Cellophane wrapped. fact We know we are right and can prove it Further than this everyone knows that a razor blade must be able to bend without cracking when tightened in the holder. This requires steel of a certain temper not suitable for a keen cutting edge. The problem is to permit flexing and yet have a hard edge that can be ground and stropped for proper shaving pjrformance. Gillette has achieved the solution of this problem in the manufacture of its slotted blades. These blades are made by a special tempering process that makes the edges exceptionally hard, while the center, of a different temper, flexes easily. We urge you to try today s Gillette blades the regular blade in the familiar green package or the BLUE SUPER-BLADE in its blue package, Cellophane wrapped. Do so without risking a cent If you don't agree they are the sharpest, smoothest-shaving blades you have ever used, return the package and your dealer will refund your '".money. - J;. jzj,. GILLETTE SAFETY RAZOR CO BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS Patent No. 1,850,902 issued March 22, 1932 NOT MATTER OF WHO WILL WIN, BUT HOW SHARKEY WILL LOSE JiAJCK SirARXET. By WILLIAM BBAUCHER, NBA Service Sports Editor. NTOW YOIR1K. June VS. It is not so much a matter of picking a winner in the fight here on the nlgnt or June a between Max Schmelingr and Jack Sharkey. This one of those occasions when it is more advisable to pick the loser. ' . 'That' mv foet Jin1c Sharkey to lose. He always does. What could foe simp ler. Mr. Sharkey will lose the flf?ht in any one of a number of original and ingenious ways. Here are a few possibilities : 1 That 'he will do on tomelirnann turn from a convenient chandelier. 2 That lie will forget all albout the (light and break out into the touching strains of that sweet anthem affected by the Alpine boatmen, 3 That he will sprinkle resin in his hair and go into a Morgan dance. 4 That he wffll kick himself, in a cadence, 11 times on the chin. 5 Tliat he will throw water buckets at the radio announcers (and, come to think of it, that wouldn't be a bad way to lose, at that). . 0 That he will enact the oollloquy from Hamlet. 7 That he will reproduce with ell-talkie continuity the Cremation of Sam McOee, Cusp.v at the Bat or a Betel-tuese medicine show. 1 . ...'. - In substantiation of the above assumption, look back upon the man's antks, if yon still have the heart. Against Scott, he was a gibbering fishwife, casting imprecations at that ol' daljibil sea. After smacking Phil soundly about the ankles he rushed over to his corner and bared his manly bosom with the invitation, "Hit me low, then too, you !" . . Against Camera, he tried to Jump out of the ring, and was halted only by the fat paunch of his manager, Johnny Buckley. He wept after he had knocked out Jack Delaney. He dropped his paws and turned to remark to the referee while Dempsey was still there in the same ring with him. He cried whimsically, like some sweet girl graduate whose flowers didn't arrive in time for the commencement exercises," after Wills had lost to him on a foul. And two years ago he fouled Schmel-Ing into the world's heavyweight championship. What are you going to do wltfh a fighter like that? The answer is, the man should be stuffed and sent to the Smithsonian Institution, ISobmeling's imperturbable calm will drive him wild. It drove him wild before why not now? The German will go along, taking a few belts here and there during the first few rounds. He will not be dls-j turbed a great deal, but will keep com ing in, watching for his chance to laud sly and important counter-punches, many of which will find their way to the sensitive Sharkey midriff. . Finally, Sharkey will become frantic. Then you will see him going into his dance. Or, he may just explode, and go right up into the starry Long Island skies in a wisp of acrid smoke. And that will be all of that. JACK SHARKEY HE WILL QUIT ;IS P 'Wants Title More for Clory Than Money" But Won't Let Chance for Earnings to Pass.

By STUART CAMERON, United Press Sports Editor. ORtitGEJBIR!G, N. Y.. June 16. Jack Sharkey, trained down to a compact 201) pounds, today spent a day of .serious loafing talking about his fu ture, and denying he will quit tne ring. "Win, lose or draw against Max iSchmelhrg," he said "I am not quit-' ting the ring. I know everybody, almost, thinks I will do a Tunney If I win. I won't Why should I? " "I've been after this title for eight years. Sure I want It now for the glory, more than the money. But the money I can earn from even one title defense is just plain too much to be kissed off with a polite bow to the other heavyweights. I'm not saying I never will quit as an undefeated ehampi-ion. But I sure am going to get In that one title defense and maybe a lot of them. "First, though, rm planning a trip around the world with my wife, and then I'll think about boxing again. All of this goes on the idea I'm going to beat ftfax, and I think I am. If I lose I don't know what I will do. But I have no plans for quitting." . iSharkey has lost the fat around his middle. He was overweight during the winter. There was an Indication of paunch, and a pair of fat Jowls. 8har-key dropped off some of this excess poundage during the past fortnight. Much of it came off yesterday when a strenuous session in the ring brought him from 206 to 201. 15 Babe Ruth singled In four times on. Lou Gehrig made a home run and a single In four times at bat. Al Simmons singled, accounting for two runs, in three trips to the plate. BUI Terry doubled and singled, ac-. counting for three runs, in ifour tries. Hack Wilson doubled in rour times UP, ;..!.;
