DETROIT, March 21. - (P) - The
impossible didn't quite happen to-
night but it came closerenough to
throw a substantial scare into Joe
Louis and his'fistic family before the
Bomber was able to do his work. t
With just a whale-sized heart and
a dazzling left hand, the New YorkI
giant, Abe Simon-the big target who,
wasn't supposed to have one chance
in a milion of lasting more than three
rounds-gave Louis a "helluva" fight

surprising showings in any Louis bout
up to now, for Simon wasn't expected
to go more than three rounds, yet he
not only lasted 12 full heats, but was
fighting all the way to the finish with
a great show of courage and a fine
left 'hand.
Leonard Holds
Detroit Tigers
To Two .Blows
ORLANDO, Fla., March 2.-G()-
Dutch Leonard had his butterfly
ball in mid-season form today and
held Detroit to two singles over five
innings as Washington defeated the
American League champions, 7-5.
All of Detroit's runs were scored
off rookie Jimmy Dean who pitched
the first four innings. Four came in
the second when Buddy Lewis mis-
played Birdie Tebbett's grounder and
Gorsica singled after Dean had filled
the bases by hitting Rudy York and
walking two men.
The Senators collected their seven
runs during the first three innings
when Johnny Gorsica walked five
men, hit another with a pitched ball
and yielded seven hits, one a triple.
Relief hurlers, Harold Newhouser
and Al Benton, allowed the Senators
only two hits in the remaining six
innings, but bythat time the Tigers
were having other difficulties with

will be the .first time the event has
been held at the Chicago classic.
Twice previously this season a
Hoosier foursome has led the Wol-
verine crew to the tape-once in the
Illinois Relays and once at Butler-
and for this reason will rate as a
slight favorite tonight. But both
previous encounters have seen the
fast'-flying Hoosiers extended to the
limit, and their margins of victory
have been small.
Michigan's quartet is pinning its
hopes for an upset victory on the
fact that at least two of the Hoosier
speedsters will be doubling in other
tough events, while all of the Maize
and Blue speedsters will be fresh.

Lanky Campbell Kane, winner of

grueling race it promises to be.

d. - Second in the Cleveland K. of

Now says our Ralph to himself:
"I have gotten better in each suc-
ceeding two-mile. Last time I finished
second. Tonight I run against Rice
and the others in the Chicago Relays.
So tonight I will finally beat him and
come in first. It stands to reason. It
is perfectly logical."
But maybe Greg never had a course
in logic at Notre Dame.

You'll like the TIME-SAVING, FOOD-SAVING, and FUEL-SAVING that these
modern gas ranges, built specially for volumne cooking, will bring to the fraternity and
sorority kitchen. You'll like the flexibility - the capacity - of these sturdy, compact
ranges, for you'll find they can adequately take, care of the cooking for the big crowd
on a Homecoming Day, or just as efficiently handle the cooking for the few around the
house during a vacation week. As have many others, you'll discover that the kitchen
keeps much cooler - the thoroughly insulated ovens see to that. And baking or roasting
is done without guesswork by the time and temperature method with the accurate oven
heat controls. Fine broiling and griddle facilities are ready for instant use. The large
top burners give just the right heat for any type of top cooking - instantly.
