Their last show came to an nivsatlsfactory ending when Referee Mike Meroney disqualil\cd the Gorilla for r eye gouging.

It was just like Dizzy Dean to drum Two winters ago Branch Rickey iredicted that the Cincinnati Reds vould become a power and. year n and . year out be a National League club to beat. Other senior eague oluclals now, agree with the irector of the far-Rung St.'Louis Cardinal system, and not the least eason why Is the rise of Warren !}randall Giles to the vice presidency and general managership ol Mie Rtilneland forces. Giles may lack some of the pro- notional ability and showmanship of Lcland .Stanford MacPhall. whom he succeeds, but he Is a su- wrior organizer and has more baseball balance, Seeds of the Cincinnati farm chain first sowed by MacPhail In 1934 started to produce the better ;rado of ivory last season. Another excellent batch o! ball players comes up next spring. Phil Wcin- t-raub,. who ranked close to the batting lead of the International League, and Frank McCormlck the Piedmont League's foremost clouter, among them. Eleven years of experience im- der Rickey In cardinal chain stores eminently fits Giles to get the most out of the Reds nnd their string of subsidiaries.

Better Cigars Through Soil Tests Likely NEW HAVEN, Conn/ (UP)—The poor taste and aroma of some cigars can be corrected by proper soil treatment, according to the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. ''Experienced cigar smokers" said Dr. p. J. Anderson or the tobacco substation, - "frequently correlate the .taste with tlis appearance of the ash.on the cigar A dark muddy ash in most cases is associated with poor taste and aroma; while good cigars produce lighter colored ashes." The dark ash was round attributable to excess potash in proportion to other gases, causing incomplete combustion O r the carbon V'and the g-iscous products Ihus obtained are not so pleasant to the smoker as those rcsutlinj.rrom full combustion." . 7 . • S2500; Building of brick or frame, frame; Material for roof, composition; Material exterior walls, wood; Material ot foundations, concrete; Building on the rront or rear, front; Distance to properly line. 10-feet; Distance, to nearest building on each side, 50 feet; Building to be occupied as, tea room.
