Editor's Note: "Pete" Lisagor; ex-sports editor of the Daily, dropped around the
office yesterday and, believing that he hadn't lost the old touch, we pressed him
into service to do one last "Aside Lines."
ABOUT A MONTH ago this writer saw the Brooklyn Dodgers rout Chicago's
listless Cubs in convincing fashion. The next day Cub owner Wrigley
unceremoniously ousted his manager, Cholly Grimm. About two weeks ago,
in the company of that eminent publicist, Bill Reed, I squirmed through a
long, disgusting Detroit-Boston game, in which the men of Cochrane so
thoroughly emulated the employees of a certain tri-initialled governmental
agency (I won't mention any names, but the initials are WPA) that the Red
Sox easily copped the afternoon's laurels. My ominous presence served as
such a forceful reminder to Tiger' -

owner Briggs,who leered at his hap-
less chattels :from a box seat, that he
didn't grant Manager Cochrane even
the customary day of grace, but dis-
missed him forthwith, or at least only
a few hours later.
Although this signal success as
a harbinger of ill fortune neither
began nor ended ('tis said) with
the Grimm and Cochrane inci-
dents, it might, properly exploit-
ed, reap a tidy harvest. For ex-
* ample, I might casually, for a
modest consideration, anyhow,
drop into the camp of the College
All-Stars this week, mosey a-
round a bit, meanwhile spread-
ing my evil virus, and as a result
do the Washington Redskins no
end of good. My visit would not,
of course, portend the firing of
an All-Star coach because they
are, by the nture of the affair,
immune from alumni displeasure,
and their tenure expires after the
one game anyhow. But my pres-
ence might conceivably result in
Whizzer White breaking his arm,
or Chuck Sweeney developing
bunions.
Out of loyalty alone perhaps, I
should pay my respects to Charlie
Bachman up at East Lansing along
about the last week in September. My
reputation would probably suffer at
Bachman's hands, because he is as
securely entrenched at Michigan
State as any coach could be any-
where. But what would prevent John
Pingle from a sudden affliction of
arthritis, .or Ole Nelson from fallen
arches,? Not that Michigan won't win
regardless of them, but there's cer-
tainly nothing quite like a little in-
surance.
At any rate, my services are avail-
able. Beginning Sept. 10th, anyone
interested may address me here at
the Daily. I must confess that coaches
and managers are my forte, but times
are tough and a fellow can't be
choosy.

ANOTHER DAY, they tell me, and
Ann Arbor will reach a lanquid
impasse, as schoolteachers, students
and athletes combine to extinguish
the light of learning for a month or
so. The inclusion of athletes in the
noteworthy group above is a seeming
refutation of the much-repeated
charge that athletes are not imbued
with the spirit of learning. That they
endure the tortuous summer heat
brushing up on the liberal arts, and
perhaps dabbling in dialectics, is a
heartening commentary. And they're
proud of their scholarship. Why, only
today, a full-c0ested gladiator crowed
to me, with pardonable pride, about
ohe A he got in Basketball, and his
pride was exceeded only by his zeal
to learn how he stood in the matter
of honor points. Greater interest hath
no man.
Democrats Form
Opposing Party
State Anti-New Dealers Are
Led ByComstock
(By Associated Press)
Organization of a new party to
battle adherents of President Roose-
velt's New Deal in the Democratic
ranks and continued heavy campaign-
ing by aspirants to the Republican
nomination for Governor were the
major developments yesterday in the
Michigan primary campaign.
Led by former Governor William
A. Comstock, 40 old guard Democrats
gathered in Detroit to form the "Con-
stitutional Democratic Paryt." Com-
stock, "Angel" of the Democratic par-
ty in Michigan in the days when Re-
publicans dominated elections, de-
glared in an address that Governor
Frank Murphy "isn't our kind of
Democrat." He said that persons of
his beliefs had "no chance to regis-

ter our protest in the primary, so we
will register that protest in the elec-
tion next fall with a full State and
Congressional ticket."
The party, Comstock said, plans to
hold a convention at Lansing Sept.
17 at which time candidates will be
chosen.
Frank D. Fitzgerald and Harry S.
Toy, two of the candidates for the
Republicap gubernatorial nomina-
tion, campaigned in Detroit.

Ousted UAW
Men ChallengeI
Martin's R u 1. e
Make Plans For Meeting
To Challenge President;
Seek , Lewis' Sanction
DETROIT, Aug. 17.-()-Four ex-
pelled International officers of the
United Automobile Workers (CIO)
moved ahead tonight with plans for
a "convention" to challenge the au-
thority of President Homer Martin
that they .hoped would receive the
blessing of John L. Lewis, Chairman
of the Committee for Industrial Or-
ganization.
George F. Addes, expelled secre-
tary-treasurer, said the "rebel fac-
tion" had become convinced that
Martin would not call a special con-
vention of the Union. The proposed
assembly, he said, would not be a
"rump" convention but a "special
meeting arranged without the ma-
chinery of the UAW."
Lewis' sanction will be sought,
Addes said, in an attempt to legalize
the parley.
Although Lewis has maintained a
hands-off attitude since Martin oust-
ed the group headed by Richard T.
Frankensteen, former assistant presi-
dent, some UAW sources today pre-
dicted his intervention in an effort
to prevent further widening of the
dispute in the union.
The same sources predicted that if
the proposed "special convention"
was held the rift in the UAW would
be hopelessly widened.
Martin allies said that Lewis was
busy handling troubles in other
unions and was unlikely to intervene
in the UAW dispute.
Both factions have scheduled meet-
ings for Saturday, inviting UAW
local officers to attend. The "Rebels"
will gather at Toledo while pro-Mar-
tin forces will answer the President's
summons in Detroit.
Bud ge And Hunt
Take Opponents
In Casino Battle

DETROIT. Aug. 17.-(P)-The De-
troit Tigers captured both ends of a
double header today with the Chica-
go White Sox, taking the opener, 4 to
3, and the nightcap, 3 to 2.
Tommy Bridges limited the Sox to
six hits as he bested Ted Lyons in a
mound duel in the opener. Manager
Jimmy Dykes, of the Chicago club,
was banished from the playing field
in the first inning for disputing a
decision by Umpire George Pipgras,
one time pitcher of the New York
Yankees.
Home runs by Gerald Walker and
Joe Kuhel gave the Sox a lead in the
second tilt that Pitcher Jack Knott
held until the ninth, when he com-
mitted an error that enabled De-
troit to tie the count at 2-all and
then allowed Charley Gehringer a
single that drove in the winning rally.
Alvin Benton gave the Sox only seven
hits in the nightcap.
Red Sox, Too
BOSTON, Aug. 17.-()-The Red
Sox broke up a six-game losing slump
today with 21 hits and a double vic-
tory over the Philadelphia Athletics
4 to 3 and 5 to 0.
The opener, which came after a
long, uphill struggle, gave Jack Wil-
son, a hard-earned victory over

Joe Heving, the 33-year old veteran
whom the Sox picked up from Cleve-
land recently, hurled the shutout in
the nightcap, allowed seven hits and
starting al lthree of Boston's double
plays.
Lowly Brownies Win
CLEVELAND, Aug. 17.-(,")-The
St. Louis Browns knocked three
Cleveland pitchers around for 16 hits
today, with Beau Bell contributing
four, and came out on top 10-7.,
The Brownies stomped on Johnny
Allen, trying for his 14th victory of
the season, with nine hits in the first
five innings, and Allen retired to see
if Al Milnar and Willis Hudlin could
keep him from going into the records
as the losing pitcher. They couldn't.
Johnson also lasted only five in-
nings. Ed Cole finished for the
Browns.
Cincinnati Wins
CHICAGO, Aug. 17.--(;')- -Doing all
their scoring in the third and fourth
innings, Cincinnati mixed Harry
Craft's 13th homer and 11 other hits
with a pair of Chicago errors today
to defeat the Cubs, 8 to 4, and take
third place away from Gabby Hart-
nett's charges.
Billy Jurges' error on Bucky, Wal-

er Jack Russell's overuhrow of third
on a bunt paved the way for two more
unearned markers in the fourth.
Walters was knocked out of the box
in the f if th when the Cubs scored all
their runs, but was credited with the
victory.
Giants Down Brooklyn
NEW YORK, Aug. 17. -(P)-The
Giants bunched three hits in a sixth
inning splurge today to score three
runs, whip the Brooklyn Dodgers 4
to 2 and even the current series.
Cliff Melton weakened in the
eighth, but Walter Brown came to
the rescue and the stringbean south-
paw was credited with his first vic-
tory since July 10.
Both sides were held to seven hits,
but only in the eighth, when Leo
Durocher's triple and Packy Rogers'
single produced the final run of the
game, did the Dodgers get more than
one in any single frame.
Bees Shutout Phillies
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 17.- (R') -
Ira Hutchinson outpitched Max
Butcher of the Phillies today to gain
a 3 to 0 shutout for the Boston Bees.
The game was called at the end of
the eighth because of rain and dark-
ness.

NEWPORT, R.I., Aug. 17.-()-
Mighty Don Budge and Young Joe
Hunt, who are likely to clash for the
Newport Casino Tennis trophy, to-
day tore through capable rivals to
pace six other seeded players into the
quarter-final round.
Budge, a two-time winner here,
drew Archie Henderson, the North
Carolina collegian, for his fourth
round opposition, and the interna-
tional champion, although never
greatly extended, performed in bril-
liant fashion to gain a 6-4, 6-3 vic-
tory that was completed in a heavy
shower.
Hunt, seeded second behind Budge,
defeated the latter's Davis Cup
doubles partner, Gene Mako, his Los
Angeles townsman, 8-6, 7-5, after a
hard battle.
The others to march on with those
California stars were Frank Parker
of Beverly Hills, Cal., Elwood Cooke
of Portland, Ore., Wilmer Allison of
Austin, Texas, Bryan Grant of At-
lanta, Sydney Wood of New York
and the last of the seven foreign
threats, Yvon Petra of France.
Petra turned back William Murphy
of Chicago. 6-4, 6-4; Wood overcame
Hal Surface of Kansas City, 7-5, 6-1,
and Allison trounced his doubles and
business partner, Johnny Van Ryn,
6-2, 9-7 to win the dubious oppor-.
tunity of matching strokes with
Budge tomorrow.
The pairings for the other quarter
finals were Parker and Grant, Hunt
and Petra, and Cooke and Wood.

City Airport Today
DETROIT, Aug. 17-(P)-A day of
parades, receptions and sight-seeing
trips lie ahead of inimitable Douglas
(Wrong Way, Corrigan when he vis-
its the city tomorrow.
On a goodwill tour of the nation,
the jaunty Irishman, who still insists
with a twinkle in his eye, that he was
flying to California when he landed
in Dublin, is due to arrive here at 11
a. m.
From what direction the jaunty
Corrigan is like to come-he is pro-
ceeding from Buffalo, N. Y -has his
reception committee a little appre-
hensive.
Nevertheless, a military squadron of
planes plans to meet him and his
$900 ocean-going "crate."
After the "Jalopy" has been placed
on exhibition at the City Airport,
Corrigan will lead a parade to his
headquarters at the Hotel Statler
where he will be a luncheon guest of
the Adcraft Club.
A tour of the several automobile
factories, including +he Ford Motor
Co.'s River Rouge plant, will precede
a brief appearance at 5 p. m. on the
City Hall steps and an All-Irish din-
ner.
Civil -Service
Seen Opposed
To Exceptions
.I
Disabled Veterans Hear
Appeals Head Anderson
Flay Corporate Groups
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Aug. 17-
(P-Charles R. Anderson, Chairman
of the U. S. Civil Service Commission's
board of appeals and review, told dis-
abled American veterans of the World
War today that the commission is
"unalterably" opposed to "blanket, in-
discriminate exceptions."
Anderson spoke before the fourth
business session of the veterans' eigh-
teenth annual national convention.
"The commission wil oppose unal-
terably," he said, "blanket indiscrim-
inate exceptions by separate execu-
tive order of whole agencies, corpora-
tions, or groups, and piecemeal ex-
ceptions of individual positions in
advance of full consideration of all
requests for exception of similar posi-
tions."
Anderson said that "pressure may
be expected from groups and individ-
uals to secure blanket or individual
exceptions from the competitive Civil
Service" and added that the commis-
.sion would stand firm in recommend-
ing to the President that blanket or
individual exceptions "be not allowed
to undermine the long-range prin-
ciples set forth under the President's
leadership in the executive orders of
June 24."
The order to which Anderson re-
ferred was issued by President Roose-
velt extending competitive Civil Ser-
vice requirements as of February 1,
1939, to approximately 100,000 posi-
tions previously excepted.
Anderson promised veterans that
the Civil Service Commission "will
not be arbitrary or unreasonablerin its
policies" but warned that "there will
be no compromise with principle."

istrator of Veterans' Affairs, deliv-
