Capacity Crowd Sees
Whip Nationals, 5-3
(Continued from Page 1)
Washington Senators, whose selec-
tion by manager Joe McCarthy wps
somewhat of a surprise.
But after Stan Hack and Billy
Herman had singled and a fly by
Stan Musial had brought Hack home,
Leonard baffled the Nationals until
he gave way to lefty Hal Newhouser
of Detroit at the start of the fourth
inning and except for Vince DiMag-
gio they stayed bewildered for the
remainder of the struggle.
The Pittsburgh Pirate star, one of
the famous DiMaggio brothers of big
league fame, came into the contest in
the fourth inning with a single and
engineered the National League's two
closing runs with a triple in the sev-
enth and a home run in the ninth,
both off Cecil (Tex) Hughson of the
Boston Red Sox.
Although Leonard received credit
for the victory, the pitching star of
the game and favorite of the fans
was lefty Johnny Vander Meer of
the Cincinnati Reds, who was the
National League's winner in the 1938
All-Star game, the year of his double
Vandy came to the rescue of Coop-
er with one run in, one on and one
out in the third. He proceeded to
strike out six and catch two in a dou-
ble play to account for eight spec-
His performance gave him a total
of 11 strikeuts in all-star competi-
tion and tied a record made by Carl
Hubbell of the New York Giants.
Yet even Vander Meer did not
emerge unscathed in the scoring, for
in the fifth inning he walked George
Case, the Washington Senators'
speedster, who raced to third on a
single by Vernon Stephens. of St.
Louis and tallied an unearned run
later on an error by Billy Herman,
the Brooklyn second-sacker.
It was a tough personal blow for
Vander Meer for, after walking Case,
he fanned en Keltner of Cleveland
and Dick Wakefield, the Detroit
rookie sensation, in succession. Case
was running when Stephens singled
to left and might have been nailed
trying to reach third if left fielder
Stan Musial of the Cardinals had
made a good throw.
U.S. To Plan
WASHINGTON, July 13.- (/P)-
The United States may propose to
other United Nations creation of a
joint body to mobilize the agricul-
tural resources of all to swell the
amount of food available for increas-
ing war and relief needs, and also
develop production strategically soE
that a minimum of transportation
will be required.
The idea, advanced by a food study
group, is under consideration by the
administration. It is based on the
premise that the United Nations are
not now holding their own in food
production, and'4 that the United
States cannot alone make up the
prospective deficit even though it
hopes for a record harvest next year.
The United States' 1944 food
planting goal was set by Food Ad-
ministrator Marvin Jones today at
380,000,000 acres, an increase of 16,-
000,000 over that for 1943. He also
asked that meat, dairy and egg pro-
duction be maintained at high levels.
"Every crop acre and every farm-
ing facility in the nation should be
mobilized for its most productive
use," Jones said.
The suggested United Nations War
Food Body would be separate from
an international agency proposed at
Hot Springs, Va.
Carrying full field equipnent, these Fort Custer soldiers move like
flies on a huge spiderweb in climbing up, over and down this 25-foot
landing net. Such drill is part of the 'toughening up' training given
military police units at the fort.

Wheeler recently left a senior

coast of California to aerogra-

Fromnnaval air stations at Pensa-

"The rest of my time abroad
was spent in Australia, with a few
short expeditions to Caledonia and
New Guinea," Wheeler said. "It has
not been very exciting," he said;
"most of the excitement I saw was in
Australia-the' rivalry between the
Americans and returning 'Aussies,'
And I can't see any reason for that,"
he added. "as there are about ten

Landmann Became Citizen in '34
"I went back to Germany the next
year and that convinced me that I
wanted to become an American Citi-
zen," he said, "so I returned to the
States and got my citizenship papers
Jokingly asked if he had ever
regretted the move, Sgt. Land-
mann said defiantly, "Sorry? I
enlisted, didn't I? And it makes
me very proud to be a soldier in
the United States Army."
"I was home last in 1938," Sgt.
Landmann said," and everything at
my home was quiet then. My town,"
and he carefully spelled the name,
Schifferstadt Rheinpfalz, is very
peaceful. The population was about
15,000 before Hitler brought in immi-
grants from the North, and now it's
about 25,000," he said.
