Five Coaches
Lead Tribune
All-Star Poll
Crowley Now Holds First
Place, With Hanley 2nd
And Kizer 3rd
The race to select a coach to pilot
the all-star team of 1933 collegians
who will play the Chicago Bears Aug-
ust 31 remained torrid yesterday with
five coaches grouped with 700 points
of each other according to tabula-
tions of the nationwide poll. The con-

test closes August 10.
Jimmy Crowley, of Michigan Sta
and Fordham, moved into first pla
with 71,879 points, but was close
followed by Dick Hanley of Nort
western, Noble Kizer of Purdue, B
Zuppke of Illinois, and Lou Little
Columbia. Little has 71,266 points.
Slip Madigan of St. Mary's w
sixth with 61,748 and Harry Kipk
Michikan's coach, followed with 60
888.
Although displaced for the leadi
total points, the veteran Bob Zuppk
now the oldest coach in the Big Te
in years of service, continued to k
the first choice of the fans, wit
13,714 giving him first preferenc
Points in the vote are awarded fi
first, second, and third preference
Crowley was the first choice of 13,69
but gained on second and third pref
erences.
Big Ten coaches continued to dom
inate the polling, with six of them i
the first ten'named. Besides Hanley
Kizer, Zuppke, and Kipke, Ossie Sol
em of Iowa was eighth and Doc Spear
was tenth.
Other Western Conferences coach
es were Clark Shaughnessy of Chi
cago, fourteenth, Bernie. Bierman o
Minnesota sixteenth, Bo McMillan
Indiana, seventeenth, and Schmidt
Ohio State, twenty-sixth. Schmid
led Sam Willaman, now of Westerx
Reserve, whom he displaced at Ohi
State, by a slight margin.
Continuing his series on the pros.
peets for the game, Dick Hanley yes
terday pointed out that the profes
sionals' biggest advantage would b
at the ends, where Bill Hewitt, the
former Wolverine end and backfiel
star "ranks with the greatest ends o
all time."
At the same time Hanley pointe
out the superiority of the collegians it
the middle of the line where Chuct
Bernard stands out as "the best center
of the last ten years."

Storms which swept the Great Lakes states, bringing wind, hail, rain and lightning, caused heavy property
damage and left 10 persons dead in eastern Michigan and possibly five in Ohio. At top is shown the
wreckage of a beer garden in Flint, Mich., one of the cities which felt the storm worst. Ten persons fled from
the structure a few seconds before it collapsed. Below is the wreckage of a coal mine tipple near Tallula,
Ill., after it was damaged by the high wind.

GOSHEN, N. Y., August 6. - (/) -
Here in the center of a horse-loving
county, near where Hambletonian X,
grandsire of 90 per cent of all stan-
dard-bred horses was foaled, the lead-
ing three-year-old trotters will match
strides August 15 for $40,000 in the
eighth renewal of the Hambletonian
stakes, "the Kentucky derby of light
harness racing."
If the weather is favorable the
rambling mile track on the outskirts
of this village of 3,500 will be jammed
by nearly 40,000 country and city
folks. In Orange county the people
take their horses seriously, while
thousands pour in from the metropo-
lises of the east not only to see the
trotters whirl around the triangular
track but to bask in the "county fa'ri'
atmosphere.
If History Repeats -
Twenty-three trotters still are eli-
gible, but not more than 12 are ex-
pected to score in the first of the
three-mile heats with six of the dozen
rating consideration in pre-race dis-
tribution of the sport's richest stake.
If history pulls its proverbial trick
of repeating itself, the name of Mus-
cletone, a bay colt owned by the Cold-
stream stud of Lexington, Ky., will go
down on the records alongside such
famous performers as Mary Reynolds,
winner last year, The Marchioness,
and Walter Dear.
In the last eight years five winners
of the championship Stallion stake
at Cleveland have gone on to take the
rich Hambletonian. Musletone won
this year, trotting a mile in 2:03%,
a quarter of a second faster than the
best time made by Mary Reynolds
and Brown Berry in their 1933 argu-
ment.
Had Two Wins
Opening the season with two vic-
tories at Clevelasd and then coming
back to take the featured three-year-
old trot at Toronto after trailing in
the Matron stakes at Cleveland, Mus-
cleton appears to have a strangle hold
on the rich stake.
The son of Mr. McElwyn, a two-
year-old champion trotting colt last
year, has shown a tendency to waver
at crucial moments, however, espe-
cially if forced to come from behind.
H. M. "Doc" Parshall of Urbana, O.,
leading driver for seven years, will
handle the reins.
On the basis of early season compe-
tition Emily Stokes, owned by C. W.
Phellis of New York City and driven
by Fred Egan, appears to be the horse
to beat. The daughter of Spencer,
also a Hambletonian winner, roared
under the wire a scant nose in front
of Henry H. Knight's Reynolda in the
two heats of the Matron, after finish-
ing second in the Stallion stake.
It may be that Emily Stokes will be
Egan's medium for evening up for the
bad break he got last year when
Brown Berry stumbled 40 yards from
the finish while leading in the final
heat.
"Bertha" Has Chance
Bertha C. Hanover, champion two-
year-old filly last year from L. B.
Sheppard's Hanover, Pa., farms, was
the winter book favorite and; though
she has shown little thus far to justify
that high rating, is rapidly rounding
into her 1933 form under the guid-
ance of Tom Berry.
Also rated among the leaders are
Martin Dodd's Vitamine; Fay Mack,
a stablemate of last year's winner
from W. N. Reynolds' Winston-Salem,
N. C., barns, and E. L. Mefford's Lord
Jim.

Chicago Stock
Prices 83 Pct.

Above '32Low
CHICAGO, Aug. 6. - (R) - Market
prices of the four basic American
agricultural commodities, produced
this year under a government spon-
sored program designed to benefit
farmers, averaged today at Chicago
21 per cent higher than a year ago
and 83 per cent higher than two
years ago.
The steady and sometimes sharp
improvement in domestic grain prices
since May has accounted for the bulk
pf the percentage increases. The quo-
tations, however, still are far below
the all-time peaks which belong to the
war and post-war era.
Prices at Chicago of wheat, corn,
hogs and cotton, defined as the basic
commodities by the agricultural ad-
justment act, showed today the great-
est improvement over quotations for
a corresponding date in 1932 recorded,
so far this year.
Wheat prices are approximately
93 per cent higher than two years ago
while only .6 per cent higher than a
year ago. September delivery of wheat
on the board of trade closed at
$1.04%-%, near the season's peak in
June, and 50 cents better than on
Aug. 6 1932.
The price gain over 1932 in corn
is even greater. September corn, now
far above the 45 cents a bushel level
at which the government loaned
money in the spring on sealed corn,
closed Saturday at 72/-1/, or 40
cents higher than the figure for
Aug. 6, 1932. The gain is 125 per
cent. With corn prices now around
the year's peak, there is a 38 per cent
improvement over year ago figures.

e Miss Jean Kyer won her fourth
d women's city golf championship Sun-
day when she defeated Mrs. Forrest
Stauffer, medalist, one up, in the 18-
hole finals match played at the Huron
n Hills Country Club.
A courageous comeback after she
had been four down with five holes
remaining to play almost won the title
for Mrs. Stauffer, but with the match
all even on the 18th tee the tourney
medalist blew.up and took a costly
eight while Miss Kyer was carding a
five.
At the end of the 13th hole, Mrs
T Stauffer was four down to the defend-
ing champion. She quickly won four
holes in a row to square the match.
t On the long final hole Miss Kyer's ex-
perience as a tournament player stood
her in good stead and she won the
match and championship for the sec-
t ond consecutive year.
Miss Kyer got off to a good start on
the lower nine and won four pf the
first seven holes before her opponent
was able to win one. Mrs. Stauffer
took the difficult eighth and the two
women halved the uphill ninth to
leave Miss Kyer three up at the turn.
The 10th and 11th holes were
halved but Miss Kyer took the 12th
to become four up again and then the
13th was split. It was at the 14th
that Mrs. Stauffer started the uphill
battle that almost dethroned the old
champion.
Neither of the contestants carded
particularly good medal scores for the
round, Miss Kyer pairing a 43 on the
lower nine with a 49 on the upper half
for a 92, while Mrs. Stauffer was
coupling a 46 on the outgoing ,nine
with a 48 coming in to register a 94.
Women's par for the course is 81.-
The championship consolation,'
which was played Saturday afternoon
over the Huron Hills layout, was won
by Mrs. Reed Orr, who defeated Mrs.
Reed N'esbitt by a margin of four up
and two to play.,
Bolt Plows Ground,
Decapitates Snake
JENKINSVILLE, S. C., Aug. 6. -
(M) - Strange pranks were played by a
bolt of lightning during a thunder
storm here recently.
First it struck a tree and snapped
off the head of a sn~ake hidden in a
knot hole.
Then it jumped eight feet to a
parked automobile and tore two holes
in'the top.
Still unspent, the bolt plowed a1
furrow in the earth about 10 feet
long and showered loose dirt on the
top of a house"30 feet away.'
After the storm the snake's head
was found inside the house; its body
was still in the tree.
OH MY AND FIE!'
HUTCHINSON, Kas. - (A)- Out
of 100 "bachelor bundles" wlashed at
the Hutchinson laundries, only about
10 contain complete pajama suits,

is the silly little things you bring
s back to other people."
The Roosevelt trails have criss-
crossed the continent; dotted the is-
land possessions; traversed the oceans
y-all in less than a year and a half.
The eldest among them, Mrs. James
Roosevelt, even now is dashing about
Europe, visiting the British king and
queen and hobnobbing with scores of
r other notables, at the age of 80 years.
At that, the President's mother is only
paying back the visit of her older
sister, Dora Delano Forbes, of Paris,
made her last Christmas.
Mileage Mystery
The youngest of the Roosevelts,
Ruth Chandler, daughter of the Pres-
ident's son Elliott, is a trascontinental
traveler - and by airplane too - at
the age of less than three months!
In between these age-extremes
come the sea-faring President; the
air-faring Mrs. Roosevelt; dashing
daughter Anna D'all; up-and-going
sons James, Elliott, Franklin, Jr., and
John; Anna's children, "Sistie" and
"Buzzie"; James' daughter, Sara; and
Elliott's son, William Donner.
Their combined mileage since
March 4, 1933, probably would make
a statistics worth working for. But it
increases too rapidly for computation.
One fact-finder figured, after Mrs.
Roosevelt had flown to Puerto Rico,
that her mileage as First Lady had
mounted to approximately 25,000
miles.
Back Home
As this was approximately the dis-
tance around the earth, it was easily
remembered and widely used. But
already it is passe. Since that time
Mrs. Roosevelt has crossed the con-
tinent in such will-o'-the-wisp ways
that much of her mileage is strictly
between herself and her speedometer.
And it is mounting daily. She mo-
tored west and visited her daughter
Anna, prior to the latter's Nevada di-'
vorce. Then she went to meet the
President in Portland, Ore., after his
cruise.
Four of the family have traveled in
Europe since inauguration day -
Franklin, Jr., James and his wife
"Betsy," and the President's mother.
Four have taken the Haiti, Puerto,
Rico, Virgin Island trip; Mrs. Roose-
velt in March and the President,1
Franklin, Jr., and John on the cruise,4
just finished, on which they included
the Panama canal and Hawaii. 4
One of the heaviest official trains
ever assembled, bearing no fewer than
49 reporters and photographers, was
scheduled to bring the Roosevelts
home.
Funny happenings along the way-

make it headquarters.
The next big family session of rem-
iniscences probably will be at Warm
Springs, Ga., where on Thanksgiving
day the Roosevelts rally around the
President's cottage.
Christmas time probably will find
the Roosevelts all under the White
House roof, having parties for all
ages, observing scores of family cus-
toms, as they did last year.
Almost any winter day a family
party is likely to be found in the twin
town house in New York City where
the President and his mother are
next-door neighbors.
And, of course, there's Campobello,
the summer-time retreat romped over
by the whole family last year, in New
Brunswick.
