(Pinky) Higgins, who returned to the
lineup today, sihgled with two out
in the eleventh inning today, scored

gave Detroit a 10 to 8 victory over

leading the American League stand-
ing column again this evening, since
New York defeated Cleveland.

for the Tigers, after a five-run as-
sault on Johnny Gorsica and Archie
McKain gave the Red Sox an 8 to 3
lead.' Hits and walks were wasted.
In nine innings Detroit batters col-
lected 16 hits and nine bases on balls,
but had 16 runners left on base.
Pete Fox scored the tying run in
the ninth when he walked, went to
second on Barney McCosky's fourth
safe hit of the game, took thjrd on
an infield out and came home on
Hank Greenberg's fly.
The Tigers completed a triple play
in the seventh when with Tabor on
third and Peacock on first, Owen hit
a grounder to Gehringer. After feint-
ing Peacock back towards first,
Gehringer threw to York, retiring
the batter, York threw to Kress who
tagged Peacock out, and a relay,
Dress to iggins to Tebbetts, nabbed
Tabor, who was attempting to score.

Mike Jacobs Threatens
To Quit Fight Business
NEW YORK, - July 18.-(P)-All
kinds of fireworks broke loose today
in the wake of the Henry Armstrong-
Lew Jenkins fight, with the loudest
explosions coming from an order
holding up the purses of both bat-
tlers and a threat from. Promoter
Mike Jacobs that he would "quit
boxing."
The State Athletic Commission,
giving no reasons for its action, di-
rected Jacobs, in a letter written
before the bout, to withhold the
fighters' "cuts" pending a meeting
tomorrow at which Mike, Armstrong,
Jenkins and Armstrong's manager,
Eddie Mead, were ordered to be
present. Armstrong stopped the
Texan in a six-round thriller last
night at the Pol Grounds, for which
his end of the "gate" was $25,404.48,
compared ?with $24,984.63' for Jen-
kins.
Jacobs, irked by this latest com-
mission "twist," on top of a row last
night over bandages for the fighters'
hands, which, for a time, threatened
the fight itself, roared that if "they
don't stop this interference, I'm go-
ing to quit this business."

What Happens When A Convention Derides A Third Term Is A Good, Thing

an unprecedented third term at the Democratic National Convention in the Chicago Stadium. The demonstration lasted 23 minutes before Chair-
man Barkley could restore order. Shown here is a view of the floor during the celebration.

In Action, Le
(Special to The Daily)
GOLDEN LAKE, July 18.-The
third week at the University's For-
estry Camp Filibert Roth featured
several demonstrations. The students
first saw a btulldozer in action. An
area of land near the ball field was
cleared of all trees by the students
and then the bulldozer. proceeded
to do the rest. It leveled the field,
and pulled out stumps and large
stones. A small amount of dyna-
miting was done on the larger
stumps. At the end of the day, the
section of cleared land was consid-
erably changed.
The next series of demonstrations
were given by Paul "Bunyan" Criss,
a Kelly Axe Company representa-
tive. The boys were taught the art
of sharpening an axe and everyone
enjoyed the lesson and stories that
went with it. Paul "Bunyan" Criss
is considered to be one of the last
of the lumberjacks from the old
school and his experiences in the
different lumber camps throughout
the country are varied and amusing.
He then demonstrated his skill
with the axe by showing the boys
how to chop and also amazed the
interested audience with his accur-
acy in throwing the axe at a mark
on a tree at a distance of twenty
feet. Several large dead trees in

In the heaviest hitting contest of
the day the Wolverines defeated the
Eskimos 15 to 10. Petite went the

mitrovitch as his battery mate while
Shepard pitched for the Eskimos.
The Ten Old Men defeated the

camp were cut down by the veterans
"Cy" Lawson and Paul "Bunyan"
Criss. Their skill was shown when
the trees were felled on a hat as
intended.
The final demonstration by Mr.
Criss was given one afternoon when
he shaved off one of the students
beards with an axe. The job was
as neatly done as if a razor had been
used and a clean shave resulted.
The second in a series of lectures
by local foresters was given by Dis-
trict Ranger Olsen of the Ottawa.
National Forest. He discussed the
varied duties of a trained forester
in the capacity of a Ranger and em-
phasized the public relations, forest
management, engineering, and ac-
counting aspects of his office.
A few of the students interested
in Ornithology reported a pair of
evening grosbeaks that were seen
in camp. The bird is very rare in
this vicinity.
