Dykes Casts Lot With Chisox;
Turns Down Other, Higher Bids
CHICAGO, Aug. 13.-A)-Base-
ball's scrappy little round man,
James J. Dykes, cast his lot for an-
other three years today with his
equally scrappy Chicago White Sox.
Squashing reports he might leave
for another spot-rumor had it he
was going to Detroit's Tigers at $35,-
000 a year-the 44-year-old White
Sox pilot signed to manage the club
through 1944. Mrs. Grace Comiskey,
club president, said, "Jimmy got a
raise,"-and it was generally believed
it upped his salary from $25,000 year-
ly to about $27,500 or $28,000. "With-
out mentioning the names of any
clubs, I've had offers at more money,"
said Dykes. "But I haven't had any
since last spring, when certain clubs
told me that if I ever contemplated
leaving Chicago to keep them in
"But it's been pleasant working
here, and I'm told I'll have the same
free rein I've had in the past. I'll
go right on trading, buying and sell-
ing players as I see fit and that suits
Dykes had a broad, satisfied grin
on his face as he made that last re-
mark, for the leeway the club has
given him helped build his reputa-
tion as one of the shrewdest traders
in the game-one who has demon-
strated a remarkable faculty of mak-
ing a collection of bargain basement
players into a hustling, hard-to-beat
The White Sox have been "hot"
recently, taking nine victories and a
tie in their last 12 starts and being
only a game and a half out of third
place. Dykes is confident his 1942
team will be the best he's had since
he took over the club managership in
May, 1934, succeeding Lou Fonseca.
That season the club finished in the
American League cellar, but from
then Dykes transformed the club
into a hustling outfit that for years
has been a pennant factor.
Immediately after signing Dykes
hurried away to Mercy Hospital for
another one of the many checkups
on some stomach trouble he's been
having lately. During the last month
or so he's lost 20 pounds, dropping
from 198 to 178 pounds.

Hyatt Says Basketball
Is Best Army Game
DENVER, Aug. 13.-(P)-Baseball
may be by tradition the national
pastime, but basketball as the best
national defense game got a hearty
vote today from one of the greatest
stars the cage sport ever produced.
"I'd say that basketball from prac-
tically all standpoints is the best
game for men called into the army,"
said Charley Hyatt, who might be
prejudiced since he has devoted bet-
ter than half his life to the sport.
"It's a better game than football
for putting young fellows in shape
with a minimum of injuries. Besides,
it costs less per man to play than
football or baseball and because of
the smaller playing space required,
the average army camp could have
a lot more teams."
Hyatt was an A.A.U. All-American
several years ago.
Nazi military sources said units of German panzer divisions have
reached the Black Sea coast at several points. Althoughthe points were
not divulged, the Germans said they were driving to objectives east of
Ochakov, near the naval base of Odessa. The Germans claimed to be in
command of the Dnieper River below Kiev.

Will Speak Today
At University High
At 4 p.m. today Dr. Raymond
Fisher of Oberlin College will pre-
sent in the University High School
Auditorium his talk entitled, "Pro-
gressive Education in Conflict."
Dr. Fisher will enlarge upon some
of the charges that in this time of
conflict are being leveled at Pro-
gressive education, such as: produc-
ing a flaccid youth; lack of patriot-
ism in text books; pupils have too
much liberty; and that the students
theipselves prefer a clear-cut organ-
ization to the liberal type.
Dr. Fisher has a varied background
of experience from which to draw
his conclusions. In addition to hav-
ing traveled extensively abroad he
has served in consular capacity in
London; taught in a Junior College,
Teachers College, State Universities
and the New York City College.
four weeks ago, Lay was a student in
France, Switzerland and Belgium. He
is the son of an attache to the Chi-
nese legation in Oslo and has been
many years in Europe.

A newspaper is an accurate reflection of what today is doing
with people . . . and what people are doing with today.
Murder is big-type news. So is a bank stick-up. And so
is the dedication of a new library, or the launching of a new
ship, or the employment of hundreds in reviving industry.
But you have read only half of the story, if you stop at
murder. In our advertising columns can be found news in
its most authentic sense.
What are people wearing? What are they eating?
are they going?
why that vogue?
How are they going? Why this style, and
When is the time to build? Who has the
latest? How much does it cost?
Answers to these and like questions give you real infor-
ration . . . news . . . about this business of modern living.
And you will find these answers by carefully reading the
advertisements in The Michigan Daily.
