Fort Dix and Snpnl the fellow wo entered the navy right after the tourna rifnt And it was fitting that Bnead the future aailor should win his frst major national championship within sight of the Atlatic ocean the site heing Atlantic City N J o t Thf furl 1hit immy Joxx is drawing a big salary prob ably accounts for e fact that he was waived out of the Amer iii League it limp unlikrly that any of the clubs in that circuit who illicit tvo grabbed the Koslon Red Sox first base man for the waive price oC would be willing to assume contract So Foxx the lirly player who had a nvrnire Cor his entire playing carr up to this year seems destied to round out his twilight ilayiug days in tho National feagne Foxx was sgreat ball player in his ay one of the greatest ripthand hit ters of all Only the peerless Babe uth has ac counted for more home runs than Fos It may be lat Foxx has slowed down point where his value to aig league club questionable However hi last years rcc nrd would iiKcate that Foxx still is a pretf potent citizen ar the plate els see what he did in 3941 Foxx batte an even 300 in JIMMY FOXX pretty potential citizen Will Coach Cadets LIEUT RAY WOLF One of the many

Georgia games ivjng him 16th place among American League regulars He droJ in 105 runs and only seven other American Leacue playrs did better than that That loks pretty good but maybe thats offset by such itpm as hisiitting into 21 double players third highest in the th he stole only two bases in seven attempts and that he failed 103 times 10 more than any other player in the Arnericii Howver so far as the Chicago Cubs are concerned their lading Foxx will prove a wise move if he can give them mthneeded distance hitting for a season or two Thf Cubs need distance hitting and Foxx can still whack 1e ball to the far reaches The Jift of Jimmy 1o the Chicago Cubs serves to revive th memory of the most disastrous World Series inning pvpp perstrated with the Cubs as victims and Foxx as one of the Tha was the seventh inning o the fourth game of the 3 KL Weld Series TheCubs held an 80 lead as the Philadelphia Athletics came tobat in the last of the seventh at Philadelphias Shibe Park Iseemed a foregone conclusion that the Cubs wotild win the pare and even the series at two games apiece VTil the Philadelphia supporters got to their feet Cor the cuomary seventh inning stretch but it was only a weary gostur they knew their Athletics were beaten harlie Root had been mowing down the Athletics ef fortessly and he showed no signs of cracking There wasnt anyhint of the disaster to come even when Al Simmons drffe the ball out of the park for a home run to open Phil adephias half of the seventh I still didnt look too menacing when Jimmy Foxx Bing Miiif Jimmy Dykes and Steve Boley hit successive singles to be sure the Cubs gathered around Root and assured rirrithat he was all right all right Charlie old boy old Roof assured his mates that he was exactly that and so w r they icnrgc flurns went iii lo bat for Kddio Komnifll and did brxl to aid the Cubs by popping to Woody English But Aifix ISishop then singled and the score was now 84 there VMS only niie out and the Athletics had two men on base Ait Nell replaced Root it being apparent by this time ti at Oiarlie old bov old bov was anything hut nil right all r Mule Haas promptly drove out a long fly that should have been an easy out except that Hack Wilson los it in the sun and ended up sitting on the ground and peiring vainly for the ball as Boley Bishop and Haas all crssed the plate Nehf walked Cochrane and then Frerl Blake in to pitch for the Cubs Simmons singled and Foxx Iol with another single Cochrane scoring to knot the score at alJ Exit Blake enter Pat Malone Malone hit Miller to load tin bases and then Jimmy Dykes clouted a twobagger to score Xinmons and Foxx Malone then fanned Boley and Burns to erd tbe inning Philadelphia sent 15 men to the plate in the crashing seventh inning Chicago used four pitchers and the Ath letics accounted for 10 runs and 10 hits The Athletics vent on to win the game 108 and take the World Series four victories to one Demetral Pins Ruppenthal in Straight Falls Jimmy Demetral veteran Mad ison Greek resorted to much of his cunning Wednesday night to pin Duke Ruppenthal in straight falls in the windup of the first outdoor wrestling show at Brcese Stevens field Net proceeds of the match will be turned over to the Kiddie Camp fund Joe Dorsetti defeated Rowdy Pocan in the preliminary by pin ning the latter in 18 minutes with a body slam Jim Logas and Johnny Baer wrestled to a draw Each took one fall and they used up their onehour time limit before either could gain a deciding fall Demetral pinned Ruppenthal in 29 minutes with a Chinese wrist lock for the first fall At the start of the second Jimmy started working on the same wrist and scored a fall in seven minutes with the same hold Rumor Plunkett May Turn Pro AUSTIN I Piunkett University of Minnesota quarterback was understood to be negotiating today for a contract with the Cleveland Rams professional football team which would enable him to train for a naval reserve commission at a Cleveland university Friends of Piunkett reported he would leave here Aug 10 to play with the Rams but Dr George Hauser Gopher football coach paid the youth told him Tuesday he would play at Minnesota this fall Piunkett is eligible for an other year of Big 10 competition The Minnesota quarterback was unavailable for comment Cleve land club officials said they had been negotiating with him but denied that a contract had been signed Fishermans Luck Little Factor in FishingSays Prof Eddy Fish rmans luck accordtig to Sam Eddy professor o zoology at thr University of Mirnesota is a nrcligiblrt fnctor in fishing as with knowledge of fish fefrling habits metrnrts of food riftection and seasonil changes Writing in a recent isvue of the Minnesota department of conser vations official bulletin Eddy ex plained that fish such as bass sunfish crappies and Bullheads eat about onetenth their body fight per day during he sum mer and that when thi capacity been reached a fish will take liitle to no food the next 24 hours Eat More in Snmnrr Walleye pike he said teed more after sunset and northern pike often stop feeding at sunset Fish usually feed because they are hungry although some strike because they are pugnacious Eddy said For example a male bass strikes at any moving object near its nest although it cloos not eat anything at this time All fish he said consume more food in summer than in winter and in almost all fish growth is slower in winter than in summer Water temperature is the chief factor in determining amount of food taken and growth Eddy ex plained Pickerel Strike Fast The question whether fishds detect their food by sight taste White Sox Sign up Jake Wade NEW Wade southpaw pitcher formerly with the Tigers Red Sox and Browns has been signed by the Chicago White Sox to bolster their hurling corps which has been depleted by the loss of John Rigney lo the navy and the arm ailment which has prevented Thornton Lee from pitching Wade was a free agent having been released by the Indi anapolis American Association club last year or smell is controversial he said Bass walleyes and dogfish spot their prey turn and eye it momentarily and seize it Pickerel and muskcllunge will poise aimed at a minnow As long as the min now is stationary they do not strike but when the minnow moves they strike it almost faster than the eye can follow Eddy said the propensity of many game fishes to strike mov ing objects enables the fisherman tn fool them with artificial min nows plugs and spinners Distinctive Flavors A little inducement through the sense of taste or smell may aid and an angleworm or a min now on the hook of the spinner will usually give just enough in ducement to cause a fish to strike where otherwise he might not Fish flavor he continued is partly influenced by the food fish eat although most varieties of fish have some individual flavor The general fishy taste is not an exclusive property but is a property of aquatic life in gen eral Eddy said It is well to re member that from such a great variety of food ranging from de cayed vegetation to fishes them selves the flesh of all fish is formed Badgers Are No Threat to Grab Central Crown Three However Are
