TEN THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1939. S : The No. 1 rooter of the Virginia Military Institute football team is General George C. Marshall, V. M. L Class of 1901, present Chief of Staff of tre United States Army. ; -.During his First Class (senior) year at V. M. L, General Marshall was a regular left tackle on the football team. He was tall and rangy and played an important part in his team's winning the state championship. That team played a scoreless tie with the University of Virginia. When V. M. I. recently Defeated Virginia 16 to 13 at the Cadets' Homecoming game, the General was the guest of honor. ; G-8-neral Marshall has had a distinguished military career. It definitely started at V. M. I., as he was during his three upper class years successively first ranking corporal, first ranking sergeant, and first ranking captain—each year holding the highest Cadet office open to Cadets in his class. As an honor graduate of V. M. L, he was commissioned directly into the United States Infantry. ; V. M. I. this year is celebrating its Centennial. On November 11, which is V. M. I. Founders' Day as well as Armistice Day, President Roosevelt is scheduled to visit Lexington, Virginia, to make the Centennial address. On last May 15, the Institute celebrated the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Battle of New Market. At this Civil War battle the Cadet Corps participated as a unit, making a successful charge- and losing more than 20 per cent casualties, including 10 Jeaths on the battlefields or from jfounds. • : General T. J. "Stonewall" Jackson "Was a member of the V. M. I. faculty, for 10 years prior to the Civil War, and trained many of the iroun gofficers who later served un- ier him. Like all V. M. L graduates, General Marshall was greatly influenced by the traditions associated with Tackson and the Battle of New Martet, which was fought after Jack- 'i death. GRIDDERS TO DRILL A practice for the Royal Crown Eridders has been called for this avening on the George Street field starting promptly at 5:15 o'clock • d Manager Lushbaugh requests adl members to be present as this workout will be in preparation for the game scheduled Sunday with the South End Tigers of Waynes- bbro and "will be played on the Bteservoir gridiron starting at 2:30 a'clock. WILY TOM SMITH IS PREPARING KAYAK II FOR SPECIAL f Prepared Seabiscuit For Same Race At Pimlico Last Year By MASON BRUNSON BALTIMORE, Oct. 27 (ff).—"Silent" Tom Smith, wily trainer sometimes called "the best horse in the C. S. Howard stable/' began grooming another candidate today for the Pimlico special, an event he won last year with Seabiscuit. Smith came down from New York yesterday with the speedy, four-year-old Kayak II, Argentine importation with whom Howard hopes to cop his second special November 1. The race will be a $10,000 winner-take-all, weight-for-age event over a mile and three-sixteenths. Only a light workout was planned today for Kayak, who won the Continental Handicap at Jamaica Saturday to run his 1939 earnings to $161.025—a sum exceeded only by AY. L. Brann's Challedon, for the sleek, black Argentine was beaten by the Maryland-bred colt in the Narragansett special, their" only meeting to date. Kayak came out of that encounter with an injured hoof. Challedon took his first workout at Pimlico yesterday. Another "specialist," T. B. Martin's Cravat, ran third in the Delmar Handicap, six-furlough sprint at Laurel, but showed progress in Trainer Burrows' efforts to sharpen his early speed. William Woodward's Isolator, the fourth entry in the special, will take his final tune up at Laurel tomorrow in the $15,000-added Washing- ton Handicap, which Challedon and Kayak passed up. If Challedon wins the special, it will just about clinch his right to the title "horse of the year." Trainer Lou Sehaefer -said that after this race, Challedon would go into winter quarters to rest for the remainder of the 1939 season. He has earned $174,535 this year. Jockey Eddie Acaro will ride Challedon, while Kayak will be piloted by George Woolf, who rode Seabiscuit to a smashing victory over War Admiral in the famous duel that was last year's special. Seabiscuit, from a walk-up start, set a new track record of 1:56 3-5 for the mile and three-sixteenths. But Challedon, in winning the Tranter stakes at Keeneland, established a new world's mark of 1:54 3-5 for that distance. MacPHAIL'S BRAIN CHILD WAS GIVEN TRIAL—AND IT FAILED By JUDSON BAILEY NEW YORK, Oct. 27 (IP).— That beautiful bubble blown by Larry MacPhail in the shape of a super- colossal world series between all the teams in both major leagues is due to explode from its own laughing gas when baseball men dig into figures of past experiments. It sounded like a revolutionary proposal for the second place clubs, the third place clubs and on to the eighth place clubs, to meet to settle the real supremacy of baseball and MacPhail assured one and all that the tremendous venture would make money—in large bunches. But some of the elders in the business shook their heads, suppressing giggles at the redhead's 'radical" suggestion and remembered the- efforts of big, friendly August (Gerry) Herrmann to stage some similar series three decades back. In 1909 Hermmann was president of the Cincinnati Reds and chairman of the National Baseball Commission. Under the commission's sponsorship that year the Boston Red Sox and New York Giants, each finish- WILSON BROS. 50c WILSON Wedgelocke TIES $[00 Suede JACKETS Many Styles $695 to $1] 95 WILSON Buffer HOSE 35c * 50c Sizes 10 to 12 CORDERMAN -COTTRILUnc.

The following year the New York Yankees and Giants engaged in a city series of six games for receipts of $81,462.50 of which the players received $38,871.88 for division. In the same season an "Ohio series" between Cincinnati and Cleveland brought $18,512.75 with ?S,565.62 for the players in seven games. They finished off with a doubleheader to get the affair over quickly. In 1911 this series brought $9,423.75 with $5,088.91 for the players, even though it included two doubleheaders. According to the national commission's own records, the series produced a deficit of $413.89 which the commission coughed up to square accounts. But the final, most ludicrous undertaking of all came in 1917 when the Browns and Cardinals tangled in a fall St. Louis series. The first game's receipts were $85.35. The second game brought $84.37. The third game jumped to $191.50 and on the fourth day for a double-header the proceeds were $360.70. collapsing to $28 for the final day and total receipts of $756.94. AW, NOT FOOTBALL TOO—!

Leiters Mens Shop AP Feature Service Tennis, golf, basketball, softball, and even baseball have been invaded by the "weaker sex"—and now it looks as if they're not even going to let football be exclusively a man's game. Elbert Barrett, Freshman coach at Western State College, Guunison, Colo., concedes that "in skimpy shorts and jerseys, Betty Coed can make a pretty darn good showing on the football field." Fullback Sanders, shown drop- kicking in this picture, is evidence enough to prove his statement. She was one of the stars of a recent Boxing Show Date Postponed A Week Due to circumstances over which they had no control, co-promoters Ed Kurland and Dick Welder announced last night that the proposed boxing show to be held at the armory on Wednesday night, November Sth, would be held on November 15th. This change in date was due to the fact that the National Guard company has l>sen called out for an extra week of encampment and therefore the armory could not be obtained. The promoters have lined up a mighty fine card and will offer the same on the night of the 15th. A pair of the best welterweights out of Washington and Baltimore will appear in the main bout of the evening and the supporting card will furnish the fans with plenty of action.

The "powder bowl" game was the indirect result of a recent claim in Colorado that girls' constitutions are too delicate to withstand the rigors of drum majoretthig. The girls retorted that they not only can wield a snappy baton but also can do a creditable job of foot- balling. They disdained "sissy stuff" like heavy hip pads—but did wear headgears. They liked the game so well they are planning to make it an annual event. The Woodland Way Junior High soccer team went down to defeat yesterday afternoon at the hands of the Hagerstown High Junior team, the final score being 4 to 0. The pair of goals registered were scored by Echard and Clingan. The game was well played by both teams, especially the team work of the winners being outstanding. Hagerstown PO Woodland Way W.
