Are they'as good 'as they looked in winning seven of their'first eight gamcsV Or are they as bad as they appeared In losing a 5-0 shutout to the While Sox in Chicago Saturday? It is generally agreed the. Browns are improved over the drab outfit that wound up a poor eighth last year. But how much? Have they improved enough to stamp themselves as a contender for the American League pennant? For that matter, are they good enough to. .finish in the first division? "Nobody actually knows just how good the Browns are," said Bill Durney, the club's traveling secretary. "The boys think they're the best club in the league. They've got the confidence. They fear nobody. Nobody knows what Hornsby (Mariager.'.I^ogers Hornsby) thinks deep down in ills heart, but he makes them think they're the best. He keeps pounding it into them that they're going to win the pennant. And what's more, they believe him." The Browns have looked as good as any club in the league during the first two weeks of.thc season. The pitching has been brilliant, tho fielding superb, the hitting timely, it not overpowering. The club has shown dash find fire as no other Brownie team has exhibited In years and years. St. Louis' great start not only has added interest to the league race, but has stimulated attendance everywhere the Browns have played. Back home the long-suffering Brownie fans have been boiiting a steady path to Sportsman* Park to view this 1052 phenomenon. A total of 70,91(1 persons paid t see the Browns' in their first five home dates as compared to 22,576 for the same number of games last year. Eager to sec what was making SI. Louis tick, 40,040 fan., largest Chicago crowd ever to see the Browns, attended yesterday's Iwln bill. Durney, who said the Browns already had sold 2,000 regular season tickets, the highest total the club's history, predicted an attendance of close to a million Not white, not wheat, not rye, but «' flavor blend, of nil three-Junge's Roman Meal Bread. 11-19-tf BRAKES - LIGHTS - STEERING THE BIG THREE OF SAFE DRIVING $«t KOHIER and HAU for a FREE chtckup on thts.

N . C.-(/p)-Frank Stranahan is not superstitious, but the Toledo golfer thinks that » pair of red, \yhite and blue shoes may have heined him win the North ind South Open Tournament for the third time. After Stranahan had polished 3ff Frank Strafacl, Flushing, N. Y., 8 and 7, in the 36-hole finals on Saturday, he explained the origin of the patriotic pumps he'd ivorn during the week. The shoes, made especially lor the U.S. Ryder Chip team in its matches here with the British last fall, were given to him by Ryder Cupper Jackie Burke, Tsxas professional, after the two had played in a recent exhibition. "The first day I wore them I ihot a 67," said Frank. The lucky ihoes didn't hamper him in the tournament. In closing out Stra- (aci on the l l t h hole of the afternoon round, he was 4 under par [or 29 holes. He put on one of the most amazing long putting exhibitions seen In 52 years of North and South history. Sixty, SO and 20-foot putts ill helped him build up his big margin, largest for a finals in 10 years. *.

Easlon also mentioned 10."-yard- dash winner James Golliday, Northwestern sophomore, and Dick Colcman of Illinois, first in the pole vault. Deckard believes Golli- 'day will be America's Tlo. · 1 dash man.
