Middleweight Champ Back At Work

Mel Fineberg
Pirate Tradition .. .
Now that the current baseball sea-
son is entering the late afternoon
stage, it is most surprising to see the
traditional morning-glories still well
up in the pennant race. In fact, Pitts-
burg seems to be more than merely
up in the race; they are well out in
But the belief still is that the
Pirates will crack. They have a
reputation to uphold, a reputa-
tion which they acquired way
back in 1921.
In that year, the Pirates were 71/2
games out in front of the pack in
the middle of August. It seems that
the prancing Bics were so sure of
themselves that they bought them-
selves some musical instruments and,
instead of playing ball, they played
instruments in the dugouts, amus-
ing themselves and the customers.
The amusement went on apae
when the Pirates dropped five
straight to the Giants and then
continued in the field of enter-
tainment while the Giants, with
decided lack of humor, confined
themselves to the baseball field.
In the end, the Pirates gof all the
laughs and the Giants got the
World Series money.
Since then the Pirates have won
pennants; they turned the ,tables on
the Giants soon after and won in
1925 and again in '28. But for the last
few years they've been leaving the
post like the beggar at Bethesda and
falling behind when July comes
But this year, the Pirates are
fooling them all by staying up.
The recent loss of Rookie Bob
Klinger may do them a lot of
harm but even more than that,
the renaissance of Dizzy Dea n
and the spurt that the Cubs wil
make, will be the final blow.
The other dark horse, Cincinnati,
is in a"good spot. Seven and a half
games out of first place, they are in
a position to come down the stretch
with a strong rush. They can sneak
up while the other three teams are
killing themselves off.
This year New York doesn't
seem to have the stuff. Their
pitching staff, which had been
their mainstay for the two fat
years, isn't holding up. They're
weak in the infield and the out-
field isn't hitting as it can.
So down the stretch it's going to
be the Pirates and the Cubs with Cin-
cinnati always looming strong. The
Giants, poor things, will be thi corpus
Indian Tradition.. ..
Morning glory No. 2, (or is it no.
is doing right well for itself in the
American league. Cleveland, who, if
they were following the form, would
be in the throes of a slump, are now
only a game behind the league lead-
ing Yankees. Of course, 'the Cleve-
land procedure of eking out 12-11 vic-
tories is not compatible with winning
pennants. Sooner or later they will
make 10 runs a game.
But with the Indian pitching
staff depending on Allen and
Feller and the obvious inability
of Allen and Feller to carry he
team through an entire season,
it seems inevitable that the
Cleveland club should slump.
Boston's Gold Sox have much more
power than Cleveland and are better
able to carry their pseudo-pitchers
along than is Cleveland. And if
Lefty Grove should find his missing

pulse and use it to repulse other clubs,
then the Sox will pass Cleveland and
give the'Yankees plenty of trouble.
But in spite of the five-game
winning streak of the Tigers, the
Yankees, with all their power,
are still the team to beat. . And
from this Corner, it doesn't look
as though it's going to be done.

Pirates Sure
Pirates Ca ' t
Lose Pennant
NEW YORK, July 29--/P-It must
be coming to pass, because Paul Glee
Waner says so.
Paul says the Pittsburgh Pirates
are going to win the National League
pennant with a comfortable margin
so they can get an old fashioned
American League rest for the World
Series. And when Paul rears himself
to such a forecast it must be the real
McCoy because he's one of the best
informed and most cautious men in
the game when it comes to predic-
"I figure we'll win," said Paul as
he and his roaring Pirate mates came
to town for the Brooklyn series. "This
team is smoother than our last pen-
nant winner back in '27. We'll look
terrible some days but we've got the
power, steadiness, and class to come
back the next two or three. We
should have a big enough margin to
get a few days rest before meeting
those major leaguers."
An inve'stigation of the Pirates, as
they lolled about the hotel lobby, dis-
closed the team is in just the right
mood to win a pennant. Every man is
dead serious and a bit crabby. They
have a champion's disdain for the
'other contenders though most of them
figure the New York Giants still are
the ones to beat.
"With a guy like Hubbell," they
said, "these guys never can fall into
a horrible slump."
A few think the Chicago Cubs still
have a great chance. Cincinnati,
they figure, can't do it with its pres-
ent infield.
What's happened to the Pirates?
The keymen have been Johnny Rizzo,
Lee Handley and Pep Young. Also th
young pitchers have been coming
through, aided by Mace (Fireman)
Brown's superb relief pitching.
Rizzo's comeback has been amaz-
ing. After a great start, he went hit-
less 30 times in succession. On his
31st try, he hit a homer with the
bases loaded and has been hitting be-
tween .375 and .380 ever since.
Handley and Young are turning in
such miraculous plays around second
and third that old Honus Wagner
thinks they are fast becoming one of
the great infield pairs in history.
They even have Arky Vaughan hust-
"I gotta hustle," said Arky with a
chuckle, "or those two guys would
knock my head off with their terrific
Theturn in the Pirate fortune came
on the opening day of their second
Eastern trip. Inasmuch as the Giants
always treated them like minor
leaguers in New York, Manager Pie
Traynor decided to give his young
pitchers a chance. They rewarded him
by winning the series. Since then,
the Buccaneers have been riding
strong. They've won 35 of their last
46 games, excluding a tie with Hub-
bell. In their last 18 series, they've
won 1. The only club to take 'em
was Brooklyn, which won two series
and tied one.
"Why are we going to town?" asks
Manager Pie. "Because we haven't
got a great star on the team."

University will appoint an official of
the graduate school to supervise the
program, while each teacher college
will appoint a graduate council to ad-

Closing an auspicious season of con-

sical training at the University, the
High School Clinic Band was labeled,
"the best I've ever had," by Prof.
William D. Revelli, director of ther
Michigan Varsity Band and conductort
of the summer clinic.1
One hundred fifteen high school
students ranging in age from 11 to 18
years -old, were. assembled approxi-1
mately three weeks ago through a se-
lective process of interviews and ex-
aminations administered by Profes-
sor Revelli to study solo, ensemble1
and band techniques. The players
came from eight different states,
Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, In-
diana, Minnesota, Illinois, West Vir-
ginia and Virginia.
Girls werethoused in Adelia Cheevert
house and the boys put up in .the.
Union. Don Chown, Grad., was inr
charge of the clinic members, and
he supervised a program of sports,
parties, hikes, dances, practice hours
and free periods.. The work for the
season was conducted -under the sup-
ervision of Professor Revelli and a
group of guest conductors including
such nationally known professional
men as Victor J. Grabel, director of
the Chicago Land Festival, and Prof.
Gerald Prescott, director of Bands at
the University of Minnesota.

"The artistry and musical ability
contained in this group," said Pro-
fessor Revelli, "has made it easier to
work together and to complete a
greater amount of work."
Professor Prescott said of the Clinic
Band that it was undoubtedly one
of the finest organizations of its kind
he had ever been associated with.
It is the work of groups like this,
asserted Mr. Grabel, that will even-
tually bring about the awakening of
the public to the great cultural gifts
inherent in the wide diffusion of good

Perhaps you have always wanted an electric range,
but felt that it cost too much to operate. You will be
pleasantly surprised at the newest cost figures just
compiled by actual meter test, over a period of a
year's time: In the survey, 5 well-known makes of
electric ranges and 9 different models were in-
cluded.'The ranges were used in kitchens in actual
homes, under everyday working conditions, by
women cooking meals daily. The average cooking
cost for families of three is only $1.55 A MONTH.
Electric cooking on today's modern ranges is not
expensive. Why net install an electric range in
your kitchen now - so that you can enjoy is com-
fort through the warm summern.months?
