Red Ruffing Holds Detroit
Scoreless Until Closing
Inning 6-Run Outburst
DETROIT, July 30. - () - Red,
Ruffing lifted the bedraggled New
York Yankees out of a forgotten cor-
ner today and covered the American
League pennant picture with con-
fusion by drubbing the Detroit Tigers,
8 to6.
Ruffing put on a grand show for
six innings and even though b*
weakened so badly he had to be lift-
ed in the eighth, he got credit for
his tenth triumph of the season.
Rufus the Red pitched five-hit
shutout ball for the first six innings
and hit a three-run homer for the
Yankee cause in the sixth.
His ,teammates finished building
him an 8-0 lead in the seventh,
driving young Hal Newhouser from
the mound, but the veteran Ruffing
couldn't stand the heat and the rag-
ing temper of the Tigers, who crowd-
ed all their uns into two innings
with Rudy York hitting two home
runs and Pete Fox one.
York Homers
York's first homer opened the
seventh stanza and was followed by
two singles and a force out for
another run.
York's second round-tripper of the
game and the 18th of the year came
behind Hank Greenberg's single in
the eighth. Then Pinky Higgins sing-
led and Fox homered for the other
runs, but Johnny Murphy snuffed
out the rally quickly.
The Yanks owed their victory to!
an early start. They got one run in
the third inning when Red Rolfe
walked, advancer to second on New-
houser's balk, and scored on a double
by Tom Henrich. They got another
in the fourth when Charley Keller
doubled, was sacrificed to third and
beat the throw home on a grounder
by Babe Dahlgren. Then they made
six hits good for six runs in the
sixth and seventh frames.
DiMaggio Record Intact
Joe DiMaggio singled in the seven-
th, making 23 consecutive games in
which he has hit safely.
A crowd of 14,845, including a dele-
gation of 1,400 Kalamazoo fans, saw
the Tigers outhit their ancient rivals,
12 to 10, but lose just the same when
their late inning rally fell short.
One touch of drama brightened
the game for disappointed Bengal
followers. Young Billy Sullivan's
father, star catcher for the Chicago
White Sox when they were famed as
"the hitless wonder", was in the
stands.
There were two out in the eighth
and Ruffing had just been banished
from the game. Johnny Murphy
came in, looked at Sullivan and then
threw a ball. Sullivan struck at it

Intramural Sports Programs
Show Progress, Mitchell Says

ASSOCIATED
PACTURE

PRESS

Education for leisure through in-
tramural sports programs has made
notable progress in the last 20 years
through simplification of rules, the
elimination of scholastic require-
ments for participation and spectator
education, Prof. Elmer D. Mitchell of
the School of Education analyzed in
his lecture yesterday.
Enlargement of the staff of direc-
tors, the extensive experimentation
in the units of participation, the
greater emphasis on recreational and
skill sports in the college and high
school curriculas have resulted in a
modification of the rugged individ-
ualistic sports program formerly of-
fered only to members of varsity
teams, he pointed out.
Mental hygiene has a more im-
portant place in the physical educa-
tion programssofdsecondary schools
so that every student has opportun-
ity and encouragement to partici-
pate in athletics, Professor Mitchell
commented.
Organization into small leagues
with group and inaividual point sys-
tems have been the milestones in the
last two decades of sports programs.
The use of movies and exhibitions,
In The Majors

are other recent trends, he said.
In view of the possibility of con-
sription and mobilization, the intra-
mural program offers opportunity for
all to acquire skills and more ade-
quate standard of physical health
and fitness, Professor Mitchell con-
cluded.

Dickinson Puts
A Dry Damper
On Beer Sales
LANSING, July 30.-(P)-Gover-
nor Dickinson put his foot down to-
day on the sale of beer at the 1940
State Fair at Detroit.
He called the State Liquor Con-
trol Commission before him, deli-
vered a temperance lecture in which
he declared no liquor should be sold
on State grounds, and declared he
would fight any attempt to license
beer sales at the Fair.
Chairman Orrin A. DeMass in-
formed Dickinson that the Commis-
sion, although it previously had
voted to authorize beer sales, had
changed its mind and would not
issue a license.
Dickinson used a severe tone to
address the members on beer at the
Fair, but told them he upheld their
stand in issuing a number of drink-
ing house licenses in the City of De-
troit over protests of 'the Detroit
City Police.
A. M. Cummins, a member re-
ported the Commission felt that un-
der the constitution it is the "final
tribunal" for determining who should
receive licenses, and is no more bound
to follow the recommendations of
the police than the supreme court is
bound to follow the desires of lower
courts.
Dickinson said he might probe
deeper, however, into Detroit police
criticism of the fact the Commission
has granted Samuel Sofferin, of De-
troit, a license to operate a drinking
house after having taken away his
license to operate a different drink-
ing place in which inspectors found
gambling paraphernalia.
Dickinson, a veteran temperance
worker, commented bitterly about
the law that makes him an ex-officio
member of the liquor commission.
"As they say, I'm the chief bar-
tender," he said, but added that "I
favor wiping every last saloon out of
the state."
"But we've got to enforce the laws
and take them as they come," he
added. He told the commissioners
they had his "utmost confidence"
and that voting to license Sofferin
and some others over Detroit police
protests they had acted "about as
we'd expect of a commission that has
the interests of the State at heart.

In the only other game played

Air-minded tourists are being added to Michigan's annual throng of vacationers with the installation
of seaplane floats constructed by the National Youth Administration in cooperation with local communties,
according to Orin W. Kaye, State NYA Administrator. The above picture taken at a recent dedication of
a float installed at Harbor Springs is a typical scene a t many lakes this summer where similar services are
being held. Captain Robert S. Fogg reports that Michigan is now leading the nation in the number of sea-
plane floats. That this service is attracting seaplane owners from all parts of the country is attested by the
recent arrival of planes from as far distant as Boston, Massachusetts. There are 47 such floats installed,
under construction or under consideration.

Touring Eastern bases in the vicinity of the National Capital, Pres-
ident Roosevelt left no phase of national defense untouched. Here he
looks over 37mm. anti-aircraft shells displayed by Lieut. E. H. Waters
at Langley Field, Va.

Brooklyn baseball fans got to see a fight in addition to the game
when Catcher Babe 'Y helps (9) of the Dodgers tangled with Shortstop
Arky Vaughan (arrow) of the Pirates in the ninth inning of a 'game in
Brokolyn. Pep Young (4), Dodger second sacker, attempts to halt bout
as does Chuck Dressen (77), Dodger coach. The fisticuffs followed an
argument over whether Phelps had spiked a Pirate player.

The $17,500,000 United States liner America," queen of the American merchant marine, is shown in
New York against the Manhattan skyline, as she arrived from her builder's yard at Newport, Va. The largest
passenger ship ever built in this country received a tumultuous welcome reminiscent of the jubilant recep-
tions of the 20's.
