Will Be Visile
Bright Ones Appear Once
In Four Years, He Says;'
Not Dangerous To Earth
DELAWARE, 0., Aug. 6. - () -1
Watching the heavens through the'
huge telescope of Ohio Wesleyan Uni-
versity, Dr. N. T. Bobrovnikoff pre-
dicts another bright comet visible1
either this year or next. The astron-
omer says that "a comet visible to the
naked eye appears on the average
once in four years.
"The last bright comet was observed
in 1931, so we may expect shortly to
see one of these celestial visitors."
He attempts to dispel the illusion
that comets are dangerous to' the
eaith. Many times during the history
of mankind, Dr. Bobrovnikoff asserts,
the earth probably has passed through
the tails of comets.
The atmospheric blanket, he says,
acts as a shield, causing meteors to
burn up or break into millions of
small particles before they strike the

WASHINGTON, Aug. 6. -On the

office hangs a dimming enlargement

meaning to him, yet it stirs brave
The signal corps caption is "A
Squad of Famous Soldiers." And what
a squad! Bulky "Papa" Joffre, a coun-
try squire to the eye despite his sol-
dierly trappings; Foch, generalissimo

contrast; bearded Gallian of Belgium;

But For Two Reasons Big Hank
Miffht Not Be With Tiger Team
Where To Go
By EARL J. HILLIGAN
(Associated Press Sports Writer)
DETROIT, August 6. - (P) -There
are only two reasons - albeit big ones
-why big Hank Greenberg is not
playing first base with the New York
Yankees against their rivals for first,
place, the Detroit Tigers, instead of
The reasons are $9,000, and LouI
Gehrig - not necessarily set downI
here in the order of importance.
The $9,000 was the option plum the
Tigers dropped into Huge Henry's lap
when the six-foot four-inch, 210-
pound slugger was still in high school.
Gehrig, of course, happens to do about
all the first-basing the Yankees need.
Greenberg, whose improvement this
year is high on the mounting list of
"factors in the Tigers' sensational
showing," was a standout high school
athlete at Monroe high school in New
York City for four years.
Respects Lou's Durability'
He played baseball, football, soc-
cer, basketball and track, winning
letters in all five. Before his gradua-
tion New York, Washington and the
Tigers had made offers for his serv-
Henry liked his native New York,
and he liked the Yankees. But he
considered Gehrig's unsurpassed rec-
ord of durability and figured his fu-
ture with the Ruppert Rifles would be
rather remote, to say the least.
The Tigers finally signed him, pay-
ing him $9,000 with the understand-
ing he would enter college to gain
experience. But he couldn't wait and
left with the Bengals for spring
training camp. He was farmed to
Hartford, Conn., and Raleigh, N. C.,
then came back to Detroit, still unable
to get going.
Finds Stride In Texas
Sent to Evansville, Ind., in the
Three-Eye league, he couldn't find
himself. Then with Beaumont in the
Texas league in 1931 he started to
click and hit 39 home runs.
"Oboy!" he recalls, "was I a slugger
against those minor league pitchers-
and was I a sucker for those majors!"
Last year he started badly, then
suddenly began to get straightened
In the current campaign he has
been one of the most dangerous of all
Tiger batsmen with men on the bases.
He is a slashing type of clubber, lin-
ing his drives against the fences in-
stead of lifting them. At first base
he makes a fine target, and his field-
ing has improved steadily.
New York's loss - though it's be
hard to say what the Yankees could
actually do with Henry -has been
the Tigers' gain, and may mean that
first pennent since 1909 for Mickey
Cochrane's hustling Bengals.
Sea anemones, which resemble sen-
sitive flowers, live on fish which they

New Deal Has A Full House - Or Maybe Three
Yet beyond the Rhine, even then,
Paul von Hindenburg, older than the
oldest of the victor squad, was begin-
ning a new march along paths strange
to his soldierly steps toward a niche
in world history all his own, impelled
by that great-hearted love of coun-
try which is. a soldier's lode-star.
Love Of Fatherland
Von Hindenburg had known earned
and honored retirement while the vic-
tors were still juniors, before the blar-
ing war trumpets of 1914 brought him
back to duty, to public service that
death alone would end, to a long life-
time of ever-increasing responsibili-
ties. For another double decade that
ponderous, martial figure, that stern
face, were to be worked into the very
fabric of world history, in war and
in peace,*as it came from the loom of j
the hurrying years.
Revered, worshipped by his coun-
tr:men, honored hy soldiers and
statesmen alike among the conquer-
ors, acclaimed 'by the world as a sol-
dier of peace as well as war, a vital
personal force around whose bier were
to gather dark forebodings as to what
new disaster for mankind the death
of his one man might mean - it is
a gripping story, that of Paul von
Hindenburg. It has no fellow in all
the lore of the World war and its
And what made him what he was,
what history will write him down for,
was love of his German fatherland.
That is his fitting epitaph.
Operation May Aid
Pug Lund's Playing
MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 6.- (P) -Re-
covering from the shock of the first
news that Francis "Pug" Lund, all-
America halfback, had lost a finger by
amputation, Minnesota football fans
glow inthe assurance that loss of the
digit actually may help Lund's play-
Gopher followers have been jittery
in the assumption that prospects for
the Maroon and Gold's greatest sea-
son were "too good to be true." It has
become an axiom at Minnesota that
"something always happens" to blast
But the home folks have the state-
ment of Dr. Myron Henry, bone spe-
cialist, that Lund will . be a better
football player than ever. The dur-
able Pug, he revealed, had been handi-
capped throughout his collegiate ca-
reed by stiffness in the small finger
of his left hand.
The digit was broken when Lund
was in high school. It became stiff,
and several times each season was in-
jured or dislocated. So by recommen-
dation of Dr. Henry, Lund readily
agreed to having the tip amputated.

Italian Baby Disproves
PAVIA, Italy, Aug. 6. - (AP) -Trag-
edy has convinced the bereaved par-
ents of two-year-old Alberto Gandini
di Guido that modern child psychol-
ogy methods are not infallible.
The child fell into a small reservoir
several months ago and was rescued
after a bad fright. Neighbors with
modern ideas counselled the parents
to let the baby's experience teach its
In the next couple of months he
fell in four more times, showing
marked terror after each rescue.
Just about the time the di Guidos
had decided to resort to less modern
precautionary methods the baby fell
in again and was drowned.
