He is u gross, emotional man, unsure of himself, fearful of new found glory, and ever conscious of his former profession, plumbing.

ICach cross is covered with sharp nail points and each prisoner, as he Is captured, is stood in front of a tree with arm outstretched to eventually die of exhaustion. Wallati is the first caught. But his inspiration is felt throughout the story and is the super needed by Heisier on his flight to reod'om. Wallau shouts as he is j dying: ".No mutter how crucliy the win-lei strikes in the souls of men. there is within them an instinct for good which cannot be destroyed," At the opening of the 5'imy. Hoislor is an embittered man. Tortured almost to insensibility, he is more dead in mind than in body. Always with his captors at his heels, the chase takes him to a village church, where almost dead from exhaustion and a painfully torn and infected hand, he find's shelter behind the statue of St. Alma.

They all occurred in 1S93, which seems to have been an epic year. The incomparable Nellie Melba, Australian soprano, made her' debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York on Doc. -Hh' of that year. William McKinley ran against William Jennings E r y n n. for Presidunl. of the United States that year. Women were first permitted to sit in the lobby of a hotel. This happened in the old Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York city. In "It Happened Tomorrow." at (he Strand, -VIclba's voice Is interpolated by Jean Forward; Jack Onkie as a phony clairvoyant predicts the election of Bryan and the beautiful Linda Darnell graces the hotel lobby of the Hotel St. George. Another great event of 1893 was the opening of the Chicago World's Fail-. It was on the famous midway of the Fair that Little--£gypt danced for the first time, doing what was known later as the Hoochi Koochie dance. This was copied by dancers from coasl. to coast, and no tent show in the United States went without its carbon copy of Little Egypt. It was humorously known ;4S (he Little l£gypt epidemic. Another humorous but outstanding event in 1S03 occurred in Springfield, Mass., when a man by the name of Charlcsc E. Dur- j yea a pulling test with America's first gasoline buggy. All in all. 1S93 was a great year! The companion feature on the Strand bill closing tonight is "The Racket Man," and features Tom Neal, Jeanne Bates and Larry Parks.

Tho first round left them gasping. Around the blazing ringside lights and back in Iho siiadows the crowd asked: "What's happened lo Wildu?" The battering wild man from the Philippines had come out. .with n. rush and climbed all over Jimmy Wilde. The champion' found himself standing up to an avalanche of punches to llic body and to tho head, 'Nothing w,os wrong with Wilde. He wns slowing up a little, perhaps, bul. he was in good shape. No, the trouble was with Villa. He was keyed to the fines: fighting pitch of his career. Pancho was going out to use his favorite style — start swinging when Ihe bell opened the round — and stop swinging when the bell closed the round. .Between those bells he moved his fists like twin pistons — lil<e two piiciirivers — battering J i m m y Wilde all over Ihe. ring.

BUY WAR BONDS AND STAMPS By nil UK (Sjiorts Editor) This business or athletic records is a booming business, increasing as the days go by. At the last count it wos discovered that there are nearly as many athletic records as there are made by an adding machine company, . in .mother line of business. But a group of citizens — none very prominent — decided that a new typo of records should be issued for baseball in general. Not /or the best batter, best base-runner, or bosl pitcher. On the contrary, however. First off, big league batter hits the most fouls? There scorns to be some argument on this issue —and the selectors call it a tie bel.ween Frankie Crosetti and Doc Cramer. Crosetti of the Yanks and Cramer of the Tigers of Detroit. Crosetti leads another branch. He is the top holler guy in ihe game, the fellow who yells things up in the infield. The spark-plug, the pepperpot, of the bull team. Long distance bat throwing awards go to Pepper Martin, the St. Louis Cardinal who could .•eally fly on the base paths. It .s mentioned that Martin ncar- .y hit the infield umpire once, he .hrew the club so far. His backers didn't say whether this was .ntenlionul or accidental. Pay your .noney rind lake your choice. Babe Ruth lends two unofficial divisions. He got the most cheers when he stepped to the plate—his •jutograph was the mosl. sought. I'he reverse linglish of this—the .nost booed guy jr. the racket— consolation prizes ore awarded here. Dizxy, St. Louis Card- .nnls, and Ducky Medwick, St. Louis. New York, 'and Brooklyn— Lied for this one. L o n Warneke, the Arkansas [dummingbird, lends all comers in .he mal.ter of the lagrest chaw of obacco—by weight or dcnsiiy. Base stealing record s? Ben Chapman used to kick (his spikes >ut more at the defensive .infield irs. For the fellow wbo stole the nst bases— unofficial estimates rive it lo Gabby Hartnett. Some- inc said ho stole a base once, ilaying Onc-Old-Cat wbilc in seventh grade. Hal Newhotiser and Bobby Fel- cr—and a. raft of other fast-bail jitchers—look tho long-est to warm ip. Ace Adams and Clyde Shoun lOth brag they can enter a game without warmups and pitch wel!. <]Jv Un:li:d I'FOKH) . Boston, -Vow York and Detroit changed positions again for a background — and the St. Lxjuis^ Browns fell apart in the eighth* inning of ihcir game with the Cleveland Indians. Roy Cullenbine opened the 8th inning for the Indians, by hitting his J5th home run of the year. The with two on and two out, Kocco's easy grounder — and the Georgc'-McQuinn fumbled Mickey Cleveland.-; rolled to, seven more runs, winning the game 12 to 7. Jimmy Bucher and Bob Johnson tried to keep the Boston Red Sox in the game with, the New York Yankees. The two drove in 7 runs together—but the Yanks beat 9 runs across to win the game. The Detroit Tigers fell before the hooks of Pitcher Ed Lopat of the Chicago White Sox, losing 8 to 3. Lopat spaced a dozen Tiger hits—and his team fell on three Detroit pitchers for 15 hits, including five doubles and a pair of Iripilcs. The Washington Senators finished their 19-M business in Philadelphia with a 9 to •< triumph. George My.itt hit safely four times—of five tries at bat—to back Dutch Leonard's pitching effort. And in the National league the changeable Chicago Cubs took two games from the second place Pittsburgh Pirates, winning the first ]2 to 5 and the second C to 3. Dom Dailcssundi-o hit his eighth borne run of the year for the winning run in the first ga'me—and a rash. of Pirate errors helped the Cubs to six more runs. The second game, interrupted for 21 minutes by rain, found the Cubs driving four runs over in 3-hc seventh inning. This wiped out a lead built by Babe Dablgren and Vince DiMaggio home runs. Claude Paasseau won for Chicago. Late home runs gave the Boston Braves a 4 to 2 win over the New York Giants. Buck Hltchisc^i hit one in the seventh and \Vhitey Wietelmann hit one in the eighth. Jim Tobin checked-the New York nine with just five hits The Brooklyn Dodgers jumped all over Pitcher Ken Raffensberger for a live-run second inning and then finished the game ahead 01 the Phils, JO to 2. Ben Chapman, the reformed American league base siealer, allowed the Phils just four hits in winning his second" game of the year.
