President Roosevelt Stops
Flow Of Youths Toward
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9. - UP) --
Boy Scout officials sought today to
turn homeward hundreds of Scouts
already en route to their international
jamboree cancelled last night by Pres-
ident Roosevelt because of infantile
paralysis in this area.'
The jamboree, scheduled to be held
on the shores of the Potomac here
Aug. 21-30, was called off after a
presidential conference with public
health officers and Scout leaders.
The chief executive is honorary na-
tional president of the Scouts.
Temporary encampment with ac-
commodations for 3,500 Scouts had
been completed and foreign contin-
gents were already in the country or
on the high seas when the cancella-
tion was announced.
Prevalence of infantile paralysis "is
not unduly alarming," a White House
statement said, "but the conferees
decided it would be for the best inter-
est of the Scouts and all concerned
to cancel the jamboree."
Public health officers said two cen-
ters of the epidemic are within 100
miles of Washington. The cities,
Charlottesville and Richmond, Va.,
are within "an hour or two's drive"
from the capital, Surgeon General
Hugh S. Cumming pointed out. He
emphasized there is "no undue prev-
alence" of the disease in the capital
President Roosevelt himself a vic-
tim of infantile paralysis 14 years ago,
expressed "very deep regret" in call-
ing off the Scout meeting but prom-
ised Dr. James E. West, chief Scout
executive, he would deliver a speech
previously scheduled for the jam-
boree, over a nation-wide radio hook-

As fair weather broke more than
a week of violent rains, the Muskin-
gum river, center of the flood, reached
a crest of '33.6 feet, 8 feet above
flood levels, and then began to fall.
The Hocking, Tuscarawas, and Lick-
ing rivers also were falling.
The state health department rushed
three engineers into the area to aid
in restoring water supplies through
Holmes, Carroll, Tuscarawas, Coshoc-
ton, Guernsey, Muskingum, Wayne,
Stark, Perry, Morgan, Hocking, Noble

to make sure that disease does not
creep up on the flood sufferers to
increase the toll of five known dead

Usually, along about this time of
year a glance back through the early
April files brings many a blush to a
sports editor's cheeks as he reviews
printed promises of glory ahead for
various and sundry big league fresh-
men - and finds their names now-
adays only after a hunt through the
bush league box scores.
This year, however, the editorial
blushes may be replaced by a gentle
glow 'of pride in rectitude, for a
dog-days check-up reveals the major
leagues nearing harvest time with one
of the largest and most uniformly
satisfactory rookie crops in many
Stirring comeback efforts of such
fellows as Wes Ferrell, Ted Lyons,
Lefty Grove and Bill Hallahan, among
others, have given the old guard
plenty of glory this summer, but
the younger generation - and base-
ball in general - can find plenty to
cheer about in the large array of,
freshmen and holdover freshmen
who have crashed the big show, and
Five Click For Cincinnati
With amazingly few exceptions, the
rookies. who were really countedon
in pre-season forecasts have made
their marks, keynoted by the Cincin-
nati "kindergarten" where no less
than three infielders, an outfielder
and two cctchers have proved them-
sel rs hig leaguers.
Lew Itggs aL third, Captain Billy
Myers at .hors and Alex Kampouris
at 1,oalUi Qoodman in the out-
iield, ard Giiliy Campbell and Henry
Erickson, as frequent relievers of Er-
nie Lombardi behind the bat, are the
cream of the Red crop.
The two Chicago entries each have
found steady employment for new-
comers. Outfielders Ray Radcliff and
Vernon George Washington both have
proved .300 hitters for the surprising
White Sox and John Whitehead is
one of the real pitching finds of the
year (a phrase oft-turned in April,
but not so authentic then as now).
Cub Rookies Fare Well
Phil Cavaretta, 19 years old and
fresh out of high school, has made
good with the Cubs, good enough to
ease Charley Grimm into full time
bench-managership. Frank Dema-
ree, who didn't quite graduate as a
freshman several seasons ago, has
come back to figure largely in the
Cubs' new-found drive; and young
Jimmy O'Dea hasstuck asba reliable
understudy to Catcher Gabby Hart-
nett. Not to mention Augie Galan,
also playing his first full year under
the big top.
George Selkirk and Vito Tamulis
were the Yankees' two hopefuls, and
they've both clicked. Selkirk has
overcome early nervousness at be-
ing stationed in Babe Ruth's old pa-
trol to play brilliantly afield and
keep his bat average above the .300
Babe Dahlgren and Mel Almada are
regular Red Sox at first and in
the outfield, respectively; not great
hitters, but Dahlgren is one of the
marvels of the year at snaring way-
ward throws, and Almada's fielding
and base-stealing make him an ace.
The Cleveland Indians counted on
one rookie - Bozey Berger - and Bo-
zey's come through. The Washing-
ton Senators figured Jake Powell
would make the grade - and he has.
The Pittsburgh Pirates looked for
no help from brand new rookies other
than Cy Blanton - and you know
The Flowers That Bloom

time with the White Sox last year

no standout prospects, thus no stand-
Which brings us down to the Ath-
letics, where the only real disappoint-
ment of the whole picture, failure of
Alex Hooks to play first base in the
manner to which Jimmy Foxx had
accustomed Mr. Mack, has been off-
set by the sensational fielding and
hitting of young Wally Moses.

a time this afternoon as fire of un-

Borrows Old Idea
Of Alexander Bell
BADDECK, Nova Scotia, Aug. 9.
- (P)-If the "hydrafoil" boat Bob
and Ed Evans of Detroit hope to enter
in the next Harmsworth race is
built on the design worked out by
Dr. Alexander Graham Bell and
"Casey" Baldwin, the idea is 25
years old, Baldwin commented here.
After helping to give the British
empire its first airplane flight, Bell
and Baldwin, experimenting' on Cape
Breton's Bras d'Or lakes, decided to
apply the idea of the airplane to wa-
They evolved what they called the
"hydrodrome," using an air screw
propeller and an ordinary motorboat
hull, from the bottom of which stuck
out "aerofoils"-the marine equiva-
lent of an airplane's wings.
As the boat's speed increased the
foils cut through the water and lift-
ed the boat up until at top speed she
was clear and there was nothing
touching the water but the lower
edges of the foils.
More than 13 years ago the old
HD2, one of the early models, hit 72
knots on the lakes, and Baldwin, now
a member of Nova Scotia's legisla-
ture, sees 125 knots an hour in sight.
But he has bigger plans than speed-
boat races for the hydrodrome, be-
lieving the idea behind it could be
developed into one of the most potent
weapons in naval warfare of the fu-
ture. What he has in mind is a swift
little craft darting smoothly over the
sea at more than 100 knots an hour,
guided by an invisible hand toward
a far-off enemy ship into whose side
she would fling a ton or more of
