Good basis for this prediction lies In the fact that most players now in the armed forces are of an ago to have several prime ploying yours loft. Among these men would be such st.irs as Joe DiMaggio and Rob Filler. However Harridge admits that such veterans as Luke 'Appling of the Chicago White Sox, Cecil, Travis with Washington, Hnnk Grecn- b<-rg of Detroit, and Bill Dickey of the Now York'Yankecs. might not get back into active playing jobs. Returning veterans-of the First World War set a high record of service with Major league clubs, und several attained league prominence. Sergt.

In 1!)C)3 suhivan t.-jok 3->r- guson in hand, and John L. said that if Ferguson ^vould behave he'd make Sandy the heavyweight champion of the world. But like all the others, John L. ran into trouble—-so much trouble that the former champ itched to get into the ring and show Sandy how La do things. Ferguson went ..o California to fight Jack Johnson—and Johnson handled the big ooy like a lightweight. There was one thing Sandy Ferguson insisted on having set whenever he fought. Between rounds Sandy wanted his jolt of grog. Sandy wouldn't call it an honest rest until his seconds gave him a stii'f pifll at the botlle. The sorrel- top claimed it was just the thing to warm a nion up—just the thin;: to send him out all full of new fight and energy. So whenever Sandy fought there was always a pint of liquor in his bucket.

Heading -for England in '21 London CUP)—After a fabulous rise during Nazi occupation, stamp prices in Home are again slumping, according to a report published in the London Daily Telegraph. Romans turned to stamp Collections as investments and insurance against monetary collapse. The compactness and easy portability of stamp collections made them idea! mediums of exchange during inflationary periods.

The Boston heavyweight, found himself n the middle of a real battle. The oca! boy wasn't worrying about the fact that the !ipht was supposed io last 20 rounds—he was ust poinjr after Sandy and hitting lini with gloves that felt like pav- np bricks. After two rounds of slupsinfr and ctting slufrsred Ferpruson dropped nto his stool and tossed off somc- linp- to encourape his insides. And .'tor he went back out his seconds ooked at each other in amazement. There wasn't much of the stuIV left—certainly not enough for 20 rounds. They ]>rayed for a knockout—they didn't care who was knocked out—they just wanted to see the' lifi-ht end quickly before Sandy found out that his friends had neglected to provide enoujrh ilrewater to last him through the bout. -But thorc was no kayo. It was just a good, oven slup-ginjr'bee. The tight dragged on past the third, fourth,-Fifth and sixth. Sandy kepi coming back to take his jolts from the flask. Each time he breathed and sighed: "Ah.
