Paul is now statii-jned at nearby -Camp Bland- iii),'. Flii. Mo knows the Reds will head for Tampa, Fla., training sessions just :L.S quickly as they can and is or|t:ally certain that other major loaKuo outfits' will resume their Florida and other southern sprinjr ti-ainint; -camps just as quickly -is humanly possible. "Contrary to tho popular idea," Paul said, "the major leagues agreed to train in the north, not. to save transportation facilities be- cnusc of the movement of players to tho South, hut because of the hundreds of ba.s-eb.-ilI fans who like to make a Florida trip about the same time that their favorite bull team is linibcrinfr up. "As far as the players themselves are concerned, it is n much j strain on transportation facilities to assemble the boys in the north •as it is in the souCh, but northern training camps did n nre.it deal to easo the situation from the southbound tourist-ball fan anj, r lc, "Florida is wood for the ball clubs, players and fans," Paul declared, "and the ball clubs and their followers are trobd' for Florida. .Datelines on traininfr stories and -radio mention of sprinfr camp activities bnnf.' Florida much valuable publicity." He sa'id that major leafrue clubs have found sprint,' training in the north more expensive ancl loss productive of results than traininf,' In the'south. Paul entered the baseball field as n. batboy for the Rochester club in 1920. beciimo ,1 newspaper sports [writer and then advanced to his ; post with 'this Cincinnati club. (By United 1'restO With the football season just around the corner, we're reminded of a story' about a plan thul backfired. . ... Minnesota ian-d Wisconsin..always have been the bittore.-t of rivals and it was Unit way 'a. few years ago. at. 1 the timo of our -story.. Wisconsin' didn't have much of a ball elub that particular year and the Golden Gopliars of Minnesota were loaded with talent. Dr, Harry WillkimK Mio Minnesota coairh, had a fjuartcrbaclc named Capron who uvis the- fiLsl- est thing in football. Capron was the sort of broken- feild run,i:.or who could plvo-t on a dime—and give you .seven cents change. Wisconsin was suffering from purity purge so I'M a Golden Go-, pliers were top-heavy favorites. The night before, the game- a riup of Wisconsin iipporcki-ss- mon decided to take'a hfui'd in,tho g;une. They didn't havo much faith in tho Wisconsin coaching staff, So i-he upper elassmrn got to- giHher iind laid a plot to boat the Finally, a Plii Bel'.i ICapp man came up with • an'ide-a. "Lot's give Capron'an ico fool.l" When a.skod for an explanation the senior took the rust of the plotters to the football field ut Camp Randal', where ilia game was to be pl'iycd. It was a cold'nliftht and the field had. been covered with .straw to protect it from rain or snow. The boys—under the direction of the Phi" Bete— carefully removed the straw from the 135-yaixt li.ne to the goal po.31 .at each ynd of the field. Then they played fire hoses over the- exposed part of :!ie 1'ioJd. Almost immediately they had .a pair of icy .spots. A.s- they put the strfiw back in pl-ace Lite lads wore glbating over the way ' Cnpron would .stumble and slide as he tried to get traction on the ice. Ill looked lilfo .1 fool-proof plan and those Wisconsin'lads want "to bed ceriia-i.r.i that their team' would win', ' " '' ~ Game day dawned bright, clear —and cold. When the field attendants pulled back the straw on the football field,- there' wus an immediate murmur of amn/.omcnt. The two ice por.ds had froxcn •o hard, thai it was impossible to remoVL' ;.hotn. So it \wis decided that the p\me would havo to bo plnycd I'ogard- less of the condition of.-uho fiaid. \S'isconsin took the kickol'f and thi.- entire JJaclger team .was intent on I'atching C.tprdn. • ' \Vit.ii t-li'at in mind, the wholi; V^Msconsin si|uod tore down' 'Ihe ild 'on the kickof!'. Th!^ Ixi.ll was caught by a. wiii'd current and dropped on the Minnesota -10-ya.rd line. By ihat lime all Wisconsin plny- rs .li.id moved onto the Ice at tho Minnesota, end of tho field. And th-at's where they were when Capro.i c.-iught. the -kickoff. The Minnesota'speed dijmon ran — ; and slid—GO yards foi' a touch-, down. - - - MAJOCS AS A^ Birr vVAS SMP-flSO 16 Trie First Round Conors At Stske; Good Battle Expected >++++^+*+'*'++<f«-+-r~^*-~'*'~~'~-~ -—•*•*This V That By OIJKK KAZr-AUSKAS (Sports ISflllor) Brasscos Meet Royal Giants At Stadium Saturday Night Branch Or Junior Thompson May Labor On jyjou-nd For Locals The Brooklyn Royal Giants, one nf i ho oldest.

First rticl'ard" WaJtcflold, ex- Tiger,, switched from the Navy Air Corps Base outfield lo the Detroit outilcld .in the American league. The latest blurge of -news -from the. Iowa'training center concerns Lou Rochelli, the Seahawk's alar shortstop ;md a fellow with, the hight-atei- batting .average 'of. .393. IMU leaves Iowa City Thursday lo join the Brooklyn Dodgers in Chicago. And, as Cowanus Gus says, they can use him. Roohclli was with Montreal—a Brooii farm ic-iim—in the- JjuojTi.-uional-- Ic-ayuc before ho entered ihe Navy. The same situaiTIon exists for Ro- chlli' as existed for Dick Waku- ilcld, the liifty-thous.-uid buck slug- Kur. They both "withdrew" from the Navy-— to .-i.\v.-iit action from their hpr.ie town draft .board's. , Sources in the'Midwest say that ihe Navy flying bases-are clogged with trainees. Anci the government decided they had too jttany flyers in training. Because of. the large number, it was natural -to issue :i decree at the Iowa school saying almost half of the' future pilots would "wash out," That's what happened to DicJt Wakclleld and Lou Rochelli. They didn't llr.ish their flying lessons m the upper fli'iy per cent. Though iheir averages in flight would prob- ibly have projected them through, say. two yours ago—when the need wn.s greater. In ibis case the Navy's loss is certainly Detroit's garni. And Lou Rochelli may prove a capable "i-ook'lyn fill.in at shortstop.
